And the winner is.... KRIS!

The last American Idol that I followed closely was Carrie Underwood's season (I guessed correctly that she would become American Idol the moment she entered Top 12 and she did!) and stopped watching after the season when Taylor Hicks became Idol. Sort of put off with the result, really.

However, I watched a little of this season. Kris is awesome!!

It's between Adam and Kris and the result was quite surprising judging from the number of fans Adam had.

Kris, in one of his performances.

You deserved it. =)

Happy 17th Birthday!! It's sad to have to sit for Add Maths during your birthday.

P/S: Joey, obligation accomplished. =)

Lover of my soul

The sermon today sent me into a state of contemplation. Indeed, I walked away inspired. I want to repent for my lackadaisical attitude towards the most important person of my life. He is the core of my whole being yet why do I hurt Him over and over again? I hear Him speaking to me, "Come, spend time with me. Talk to me in prayer." I realized now that they are not my thoughts. They are Your words to direct me to have a deeper relationship with You. I still remember one morning while I was in the shower and You showed me Proverbs 3:5-6,

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight. (NIV)

You are all-knowing and the verse really gave me comfort especially in this period of my life when I am all stressed out about college assignments.

What is this pain that I am feeling right now? Tears flow when I think about You, when I think of how much You love me. Even right now as I am typing this, I can't stop these tears from streaming down. Now I come into Your presence and I can see all my brokenness and shortcomings revealed clearly. I never realized that deep down, I was not whole. There's always a hole in me which no other happiness in the world could fill in. The answer to the hole is You. You always work wonders in ways I could not comprehend.

Realization on May 17th:

Lord, I am Your oracle and I believe that nothing could separate us. Not Satan, not the world. NOTHING! Yes, Pastor Angelina, I will not let the devil hold me back from Christ and thanks for your prayer today. You might not be reading this, but today, I have found myself falling in love with Him all over again in a way so different than before.

Dear mommy,

It's not easy to express what I feel now but I just want you to know that I love you every day of my life. You are the greatest gift that God has ever given to me. Have a great Mother's Day!!

P/S: Looking forward to June 13th!=)

Assignment period

The hardest part of college life, if you ask me, is the period before the assignment due date. I know most people will agree with me because assignments cannot be done at the eleventh hour like finals.

Just to update to tell you that I am still surviving. I can't wait to finish all of them.
