Joy, joy, God's great joy! Joy, joy! Down in my soul. Sweet, beautiful, soul-saving joy! Ohh joy, joy in my soul.
Very very exhausted now…mentally, physically and emotionally. What a Saturday… It is 11.54pm now and am still at uni (have been here since 10am) waiting to get a lift from Godbrother Gan to go home. Yes he is still working at this crazy hour. Workaholic!
My morning started with Revelation mini piazza concert for Warwick's 40th Birthday. It was good fun except for the dodgy weather. Love the song 'Joy!' that we learnt today. Pray that the weather will be sunny on the 19thJune for the Big Piazza Concert. Loads of people ask me when I told them the concert will be at the Piazza. 'What if it rains?' Can't help but imagine singing Unwritten in the rain. 'Feel the rain on your skin...'
After that did a bit of work at the Chaplaincy. Then played a game of badminton. It was so fun, I haven't played for one week and I missed it so much. After the game, off I went to watch MTW's production of Honk with Jason and we were joined by more Rev people, Tom, Liam and Sarah. The production was so good. I am so impressed. They were all so talented like professionals. No wonder Jason watched it for 2 times already. I like the end words…' I was different as a duck. Now I want to be different as a swan. I love to be different!'
After the show, off I went to the chaplaincy to do work. Met a friend who kindly told me of the rape case in Hearsall Common. I actually knew about it yesterday. I feel sorry for the victim and I do feel the creeps now walking alone at night. To all girls out there, do be careful no matter where you are.
Didn't do much work at the chaplaincy. Some guys were trying to do work at the chaplaincy too but they ended up breathing helium from baloons to sound funny. And yes I joined them for a bit of fun, I didn't even know them. Back to work for a bit and gave up and played piano until Godbrother Gan came and we went to have pizza at the bar. And guess what I saw on the Big screen by the bar. Revelation singing at the Mini Piazza Concert!
Was almost going to lie down on the couch at the bar to sleep after the pizza but off I went to work at the cinema for Hotel Rwanda. It was a deeply moving real story about Rwanda's civil war between their 2 main tribes. I cried. Have not cried watching a movie after wacthing Passion Of Christ. Hotel Rwanda is about the Love of a man for his family and his neighbours and even strangers. Such selfless Love. The words that one of the American journalist said in the movie still rings in my head 'So what if the world saw all this on TV. They will say 'It is very sad..' and then continue their diner.' It is true I feel sad for the many oppressed and suffering people out there in this world because of war and so on but what can I do. Nothing… except to feel sad and pray. I truly admire those humanitarians who are out there and doing something. The world is in such a sad state. I remember when I was in college, I got so sad and depressed reading the newspaper that I stopped reading it. Then again … what can I do except to feel sad and pray for a better tommorow.
