again i say, Your will be done. Create in me a clean heart.


Shitty day. But ah well... I shan't complain. James MacMillan is worth listening to. Scottish composer of many Christ-inspired tone-poems. The World's Ransoming is heart-wrenching.

King of my life, I crown Thee now,
Thine shall the glory be;
Lest I forget Thy thorn crowned brow,
Lead me to Calvary.

Lest I forget Gethsemane,
Lest I forget Thine agony;
Lest I forget Thy love for me,
Lead me to Calvary.

Show me the tomb where Thou wast laid,
Tenderly mourned and wept;
Angels in robes of light arrayed
Guarded Thee whilst Thou slept.

Let me like Mary, through the gloom,

Come with a gift to Thee;
Show to me now the empty tomb,
Lead me to Calvary.

May I be willing, Lord, to bear

Daily my cross for Thee;
Even Thy cup of grief to share,
Thou hast borne all for me.


Words are cheap. Oh Lord give me the strength to do your thing. Your thing be done on earth as it is in heaven. Your thing not my thing. heehee =)

It's strange going to the barber for a haircut when I have to little hair on my head. But I did today because I was told that my sideburns were getting long. Anyway, it seemed the barber did not feel right giving me a quick 5 minute haircut for $9 so he took his time evening out the hair lengths on both sides of my head and by the time he was done my hair was much shorter than I wanted. Ah well...

My random long walks are something mysterious even to myself. I embark on them on sudden impulse and without really understanding why and I come out of them with stark memories of what I saw and where I went.

So here is one of the stark experiences I had, all alone on a bridge above a wide highway, just after regaining my sense of where I was in a confusing and uncomfortable neighboudhood and just before losing my way again in a large industrial park.

It's Easter Sunday.

Thank you Lord for this past weekend. Thank you reminding me of your presence and who you are. Thank you for the gift of music. Most of all thank you for what you did on the cross.


Anyway, I'm now a signals storeman at pasir laba camp in the far west. Life is good but generally boring and uneventful. I'm just happy I have more time now to do what I want.

I also had a masterclass cum seminar with violinist Dr. Maurice Sklar yesterday. He's a blessed (classically-trained) musician of the Lord and his teaching on the purpose and history of classical music is really something that Christian classical musicians should listen to.

The long weekend is ending... I shan't waste anymore time blogging. =)
