Never too late

The video is not amazing, but just listen to the song and lyrics!

From Glastonbury 2009

It's never too late to start over
I'm givin these bones a try
Wherever is home the heart is

It's never too late to walk away

It's never too late to jump out
I'm teaching myself to fly

Though the road is long
Carry on
Carry on
Be a Phenomenon
Carry On

It's never too late to start
You're never too old to try
Wherever is home the heart is
And my heart's inside

Its never too late to save
the only life you can save
Its never too late to save
the only life you can save

Keep Hope and Carry On

Awesome!! Last year this time I was in the UK and watching Glastonbury on BBC. This year I am in Finland and unable to watch BBC iPlayer ;( so I just googled to see if there'd be any of it where-else but - youtube. :)

love the message in this song
- and had to put it somewhere. It's kind of for me here :) I think it's a new song- hope you enjoy it too and it speaks to you. It is very apt and timely for me for sure!

You're one of a kind

The Beauty In Ugly

well if you wanna get free
and if you wanna do the passionate thing
and if you wanna get smart for the sake of your heart
you should own your name and stand up tall
and get real and see the beauty in ugly
and see the beauty in ulgy

well you are fresh, you're face is fabulous
don't forget you're one of a kind

Let your soul be a speakerbox

"Go outside, to the fields, enjoy nature and the sunshine, go out and try to recapture happiness in yourself and in God. Think of all the beauty that's still left in and around you and be happy!"

- Anne Frank

the offical video if you prefer

Just let your soul be your speakerbox

You got the keys right in your hand
Open the locks and do your thing
Let your soul be a speakerbox
There’s beat in your heart, don't hesitate
Just let it play

"One of the things I appreciate about my friends and colleagues in the [missional] movement is that we graciously receive adjustment, challenges, and fresh thinking from one another. No one is defensive about it as we all realize that none of us sees the entire picture fully or clearly. So we learn from one another and engage in robust conversation sometimes."

- Frank Viola (@Grace's blog)

There was actually an interesting discussion on what was/is God's original eternal purpose and mission..That it started before the fall of man. If interested, go check it out from the above link. (as my quote above really had nothing to do with that particular topic)

Let's Pray for Europe!

A call to pray from Pete Greig, leader of 24-7 Prayer

And today I am voting in the Finnish European Parliament Elections! I love that I get to vote (to have that right, I appreciate it) - in my small way I get to say what I think, and to have a voice. It's an important spread of power that too. The option could be that we'd have no say whatsoever - that the leaders be chosen only by an elite or that there'd be e.g. absolute monarchy.

My sentimentalism could do with the fact that I have just been concentrating on studying Finnish history and in our lectures we just went through the time we got the general vote.. It's only just over 100 years old now! (1907) It is just something I appreciate.

PS Some links in Finnish on voting:
