so good


i am joyful

simply because

i was able to wake up in the morning

and breathe and be and feel and live

all by the unfathomable grace of jesus.

God is so good,

He’s so good to me…

you know, it’s been a while since i’ve experienced joy. i’m tired and busy and weary and have been running around campus for the past 16 hours, but yet.. i’m feel so much joy simply because God has saved my soul. this weekend has been a most excellent one indeed :)


so yesterday, i got into a little bit of an argument with an xy about what i think is one of the hardest things about cross-gender communications. in retrospect, it was a rather stupid argument that went along the lines of…

“do you want to open or close in prayer?”

“i don’t care.. ”

“well, the choice is yours..”

“i really don’t care…”

“okay then.. you open and i’ll close.”

“oh.. okay.”

“… what.”


“okay, then you can close and i’ll open.”

“i didn’t say i’d rather close!”

“but you didn’t sound happy about having to open…”

“it’s prayer — i don’t care”

“why can’t you just tell me what you want?”

“oh gosh, this is about more than prayer, isn’t it”

“it’s just that simple though! just tell me what you want, or what you want to do..”

“yo it’s not that easy!!”

“guys can’t read girls’ minds!”

and so on and so forth… until finally,

“we’re so dumb. how does God put up with people like us?”

“i have absolutely no idea… ”

“… let’s pray.”

it’s almost funny how these things come up over and over, how sometimes we learn — and then again, sometimes we don’t. once again, nothing against the person that this conversation was with — just one example of the classic xx/xy communication conflict.

… i bet you’re wondering who opened and closed now :P
