best song for a relaxing 4.5min during exam period.

never noticed this song until it came up randomly in my playlist that day, and i've been listening to it over and over ever since. =) makes me smile...a rarity these days.

live high, live mighty
live righteously
takin' it easy

oh, let's take it easy and celebrate the malleable reality
because nothing is ever as it seems, this life is but a dream

the sound that saved a wretch like me.

there was such a great annointing during yesterday's worship when this song was sang. together with angie's powerful vocals, my tears couldn't stop flowing. i can't wait for the school term to end, don't think i can do this for much longer.

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved

How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone
I've been set free

My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood
His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below

Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine
- amazing grace (my chains are gone)

that aside, i received my very first birthday card of the year! lo and behold, imagine the pleasant surprise when i opened the envelope and saw this...

who could it be from?

imagine the even greater surprise when i opened the card to see this...

*gasp* check out that smiley

no doubt it was mass signed and pastor mark probably doesn't know who the heck i am since there're about 16,999 others in church, but still, it's a sweet gesture. =)))))
