    reckless abandon to… for God. 

    i’m intrigued and challenged by this phrase.
    i constantly struggle to maintain this in my life.
    it’s even a phrase in a song i wrote back in 1999 called ‘re:newal‘ based off of romans 12:1-2.
    =====================================

    bridge:

    with reckless abandon, i surrender,
        the things of this world and it’s allure.
    i kneel in Your presence and i hunger,
       Lord, for Your renewal.

    CNN.com: Seoul’s historic gate destroyed… 

    [UPDATE|02.11.2008 @ 04.57pm (PST)]: south korea arrests man in landmark fire…
    ================================================

    wow, was on hun’s site and saw these photos…

    artdebrisafpgi.jpgartseoulafpgi.jpgartgatefireap.jpg

    at first, i thought it was his incredible skills in photoshop.
    but after going to the article in cnn and reading:
    ============================================

    A fire has destroyed Namdaemun, South Korea’s oldest wooden structure and a national treasure, fire officials said Monday.
    Authorities are investigating the cause of the fire, which started around 9 p.m. Sunday and burned for hours.
    More than a hundred firefighters poured water on the more-than-600-year-old structure, trying to save it.

    The gate has stood at the center of Seoul, having served as the main entry point into the capital centuries ago, and is considered a national symbol to Koreans around the world.

    President-elect Lee Myung-bak visited the scene and deplored the landmark’s destruction.
    “People’s hearts will ache,” he told officials, The Associated Press reported.

    The gate was closed to the public for nearly a century before being reopened in 2006 after a renovation, according to AP.

    ============================================

    i was there the past two years and was humbled and amazed at the richness of the korean culture… ‘my‘ culture. 
    and to lose such an important landmark like this is immeasurable.

    i am deeply saddened by the permanency of this loss…  😦

    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.02.10 

    both of the accompanying singers were out sick!!!  i  was like ‘no!!!!‘… the setlist and the key range of these songs were specifically suited for their beautiful soprano voices! and according to jko, ‘at the foot of the cross‘ is what she calls ‘grace’s song‘! 
    anyway, when you get lemons, you make lemonade…
    …and big ups to RG and Andy, for filling in last minute!

    overall, a great time had by all… 🙂

    random rants… 

    high school musical 2

    i have been asked by some to keep posting more, but i am so bad at writing… and everytime i begin to think of what i want to write, then i end up overthinking and don’t write all together.

    so… without the use of backspace/delete, i will attempt to fire off several things that have been on my mind recently (and in no particular order):

    =================================================

    • i suck at ‘guitar hero‘/’rock band‘, ironic… i know. i couldn’t even finish the easiest show. got booed off…

      > BUT, am excited for this version!
    =================================================

    • on my flight back from hong kong, i tried SO hard not to, but after watching every movie during the 26+ hour total flight, i was forced to watch the last remaining movie:  ‘high school musical 2‘.
