The Prayer of St Francis is a Christian prayer for peace. This prayer is attributed to the 13th century saint Francis of Assisi. I find this prayer beautiful as it reminds us the virtues that we mankind need. It clearly brings the message and affirmation to love, to forgive, have faith, have hope, to bring joy, to give moral and emotional strength to those in need, to understand others.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubting, let me bring your faith;
where there is despairing, let me bring your hope;
where there is darkness, your light;
where there is sadness, let me bring your joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I might seek not so much to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand not so much; to be loved as to love another.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are now pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are now born to eternal life.
John Michael Talbot, a singer-guitarist produced a song called Peace Prayer. The lyrics are almost the same as that of the original prayer. Enjoy! Clare, I know you will love this.
Upon receiving the express mail sent by my mum regarding my job offer, I have had restless days. Travelling here and there to get all the necessary preparation done, ranging from taking oath to medical check-up. Not only tiring, it is also money consuming.
Went to the local Pusat Kesihatan at UTM to had the X-Ray of my sexy chest, urine test and doctor’s check-up. I didn’t know I am such a healthy person despite the very innutritious food I consumed. Blood pressure looks okay, 119/70. The normal blood pressure is usually said to be 120/80 (systolic/diastolic) or less. I am far from being hypertension.
The nurses and doctor there are welcoming me like a part of their family knowing that I am entering the civil service workforce. Lol. Received lots of well-wishes and congratulations. To me, that is the foretaste of what I call ‘priviledge’ which I am going to get soon. Still, I have to pay RM75.00 for the medical check-up. Continue reading
This is the song I like most. I am still trying to memorize the Italian, Spanish and French part as well as figuring out what they mean. This is truly a song made in heaven.
Jesus Christ You Are My Life
Jesus Christ, you are my life,
Jesus Christ, you are my life.
You are my life, alleluia.
Tu sei via, sei veritá,
tu sei la nostra vita,
camminando insieme a te
vivrem o in te per sempre.
En el gozo caminaremos
trayendo tu evangelio;
testimonios de caridad,
hijos de Dios en el mundo.
Tu nous rassembles dans l´unité
réunis dans ton grand amour,
devan toi dans la joie
nous chanterons ta gloire.

One hell of a funny song for a friday night. I lol, I \o/ and I /o\.
If you wanna be happy
If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty woman your wife
So from my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you
A pretty woman makes her husband look small
And very often causes his downfall
As soon as he marries her, then she starts
Doin’ the things that will break his heart
But if you make an ugly woman your wife
You’ll be happy for the rest of your life
An ugly woman cooks your meals on time
An she’ll always give you peace of mind
Don’t let your friends say you have no taste
Go ahead and marry anyway
Though her face is ugly and her eyes don’t match
Take it from me, she’s a better catch
I have an interview to attend on Thursday, as such I am gathering information about the nature of the busines and organization structure of my potential employer. Wish me luck! This is my single ticket to get back home after completing my study.
If you still remember I told you that I was working on a paper previously, my supervisor and I are working to have it published internationally. Wish me all the best in this as well. I cannot wait to see my name Liew, D. Y. C. cited by others in the future.
Just a song to share with those cool people out there. I found this song “The Beauty In The Ugly” by Jason Mraz simply fabulous. Look at Ugly Betty on your top right corner! Despite her look she still hold on to her dream – the fashion industry. Continue reading
