You've got THE love

Check out

That should take you to BBC iPlayer and Glastonbury 2008: "The Best Bits"
Scroll to 18th minute and watch - Amazing!!! Candi Staton singing "You've got the Love". I had never heard this song before but it was awesome - and at Glastonbury of all places! Wow! This is what I'm talking about. This is how it's meant to be.

(if that link doesn't work, go to BBC Website and click on iPlayer and then find the aforementioned programme. It is only there for one week though!!)

Pure Awesomeness.

forlorn \fur-LORN; for-\, adjective:

1. Sad and lonely because deserted, abandoned, or lost.
2. Bereft; forsaken.
3. Wretched or pitiful in appearance or condition.
4. Almost hopeless; desperate.


I like words. I found this a few days ago.. I think in the sadness of it there is beauty. And it describes well what it means. Poetic.

Oh, Summer!

And this is the perfect song for it! Ihana kun on kesä.

Jason Mraz "I'm Yours"

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

So I won't hesitate no more, no more

It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

He's up here in Gla next week!

The Acceptable Religion

I've been taking part (and still am) in this discussion course by Besom, actually it is organised here in Gla by St Silas . It's really good.. We have gotten through the first three sessons so far. This is from our last session, to me this is one of the baseline things..:

"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action,is dead." - James 2:14-17

"Religion that God our Father accepts is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world" - James 1:27

Another passage worth looking up for, is Amos 5:21-24. The whole book of Amos just speaks to me about God's Heart and His heart for Justice.

Congratulations! Onnea!

Johanna & Markus!

Today - I am feeling sad for not being able to be part of my friend Johanna's wedding celebrations by physical presence! (I was there through mobile phone presence =)) In the picture here are my swiss friends Cristina who got married in April - in the middle of my final exams and hence I had to miss that one too. In fact, within the last four months I have missed FOUR weddings! May this post be dedicated to Johanna&Markus and also to all my friends who got married this spring. Lots of love,

I miss you all xx
