Rise and shine!

I feel really sorry for whoever has the task of waking me up in the morning.. When I was in school it was my mom and all i would do was curl up tighter and mumble something about 5 minutes longer and just go back to sleep. But she wouldnt give up because she had to make sure i did well in my hindi paper for my 10th boards.(i wouldnt have passed if it hadnt been for her.. thanks mommy.) For all her hard work at that time all i would do was get real mad at her and yell and curse and finally wake up. Would I stay awake after that? NO! I would sit with my book in my hand and snore. Once I remember being rudely woken up by a mug full of cold water on my face..

Now my mom’s given up. So its left to my alarm clock and Eben to wake me up. Eben faithfully wakes me up everyday at 5 or 4 depending on how many tests or projects I have. And usually, it takes everything i’ve got to keep from yelling at him. Its not that I’m mad at him. I just hate bein woken up. Eben refuses to give up. He’ll force me to get up and go wash my face and only then will he hang up. [ dont tell him this.. but I usually wash my face and get right back into bed and snore away til 6.] 

So last night, I got back at 11:45 pm. I went to sleep around 1 am. Five am.. and my fone’s ringing. According to eben, I picked up the fone and didnt say anything for 5 mins. Eben on the other end was yelling at the top of his voice. He tries again. This time I did wake up and I can hear him say something about taking an andheri local at 6:15. I’m too sleepy to think about trains and stations and I said let me sleep a little longer and when I wake up I’ll decide then which train I want to take. He agreed to call me in a little while. I barely close my eyes and he calls again. [He said the last call was 20 mins ago but I dont believe him.] By now I’m really mad.. really really mad. So in the nicest way possible I said, I’m still not sure, let me sleep a little while longer. He said fine, 15 mins. And behold,15 mins later (or so he says) there I am with my fone in my hand, mumbling something about being too sleepy to come to college. By now I think he was tired too. so I went back to sleep and woke up just in time to stop my mom from making me coffee and breakfast (isn’t she the best!!) I slept til 9. thats 7 hours.. a new record this year!!

In other news, I baked a cake. I’m not sure if you guys will get it tomorrow coz that depends on how early i wake up. lol. I also managed to staple my finger. and now it’s bleeding.

har raat mere sapno mein….

If the Titanic was made in India,

1) There would be 10 times as many people on the ship

2) There would be a song with Kate Winslet in a white saree and of course
singing in the rain

3) The movie would be called “Pyar Kiya To Marna Kya”

4) Hero and Heroine would float in cold water for days and still survive,
but the villian would die on the first dip

5) The iceberg would be sent by the heroine’s father to teach the hero a
lesson

6) None of the women would float due to heavy designer sarees.

And last but not the least,
7) Half of the rescue boats would be reserved for SC/ST/OBC

Mistakes

I was upset today. Why? Not too sure.
Maybe because I hold on to my past.
You make mistakes. You fall and then you get up and keep moving. Simple right?
Not really coz I think about the whole thing over and over again and then I get angry and really quiet coz I’m still thinking. I can laugh and fool around but I’m faking it (and I’m pretty good at it too). I’m really really mad.
I’ve learnt a lot from most of my mistakes but this one…. I dont know why i chose to learn the hard way. In the process I’ve hurt myself and others, lost a couple of friends etc etc.
I’m tired of it all.

I wish I could go back in time and erase a couple of years. or maybe I could start right from the beginning and this time be wiser and more careful.

I’m feeling a little better because I know I cant change anything now.
God’s forgiven me. I have to forgive myself.


Wait.
Four letters. thats all it is. why is it so hard to digest?
Wait.
It’s too difficult.
Wait.
but its not impossible.



*excuse the way I write, this was more like a note to self than anything else.*

GOD

We had an amazing time of prayer today during practice. Shannon encouraged us a lot about prayer and getting really aggressive in our prayer lives. No longer a passive Christian.No more a dysfunctional human being. Get out there and shake the heavens and the earth!!!!

The Church has officially moved to the next level.  Exciting?? You bet! Cant wait to see what God has planned this time! A whole line of preachers for this year- Ram Babu, S.R Manohar, Shyju..

And next year- April 2007, LaMar Boschman is coming to Mumbai. He’s this really amazing worshipper. I was listening to one of his Cds where he talks of the lack of Wonder in our Worship. Wonder- Astonishment, mystery, the element of surprise, something strange..  We’re not awestruck by His Glory or by the depths of his Wisdom and Knowledge. We’re more concerned with what he can give us or how he can help us. The angels sing day in and day out about his Holiness. Everyday from the beginning of time and for the rest of Eternity.Thats how they worship him. 

Worship Him like that. Completely in awe of him. Let Him sweep you off your feet.

I am so charged right now. Why? Coz my God is so fabulous & amazing. He’s SUPER. He never stops surprising me. He’s brought a smile on my face every single day. I’ll have to create new adjectives to describe Him because words are simply not enough. A song seems stupid in comparison to him. What can I bring to One so holy, so awesome, The God of the Universe? What can I bring except my life…

God, I belong to you. Spirit, Soul and Body. No man deserves your place and NO man will ever have it. I’m yours- now and forever.

Crazily in Love with HIM

and Life goes on..

Tired.
very tired.
so many submissions to give in.
feel like I’m drowning.
drowning because I didnt give my best.
I feel weak.

Is there hope?
Is there an answer?
Is there a purpose?



Yes.
My hope is in Him
My answer is Him.
My reason is Him.

His purpose is my purpose.

His Joy is my strength.

Peace.
