At the beginning of 2013

N.B. Wrote this already a couple of weeks ago, but as publishing now shows today's date...

A Change is gonna come

I have this urge inside of me for change. For some while already, but it is stirring stronger today. I'm somewhat fed up with "what's always been" or yesterday. I have a need to go forward. Want to go forward. Urge to go forward. To make a new path.

A song by Great Wide North started to play in my head "a change is gonna come!"

So here's to 2013! - and for a year of CHANGE.

I'm already planning some trips too. Within Finland I want to go visit friends who lived a bit further away for my "skiing" holiday :) now in the Winter. And I'm thinking of Scotland in May. That's how far I've gotten. (May) London would be nice too... Summer holidays are still open. But it's nice to plan a bit of the year ahead - just came quite naturally.

Other plans for this year include starting a Method Putkisto Pilates course and water running (recommended by my physiotherapist, and luckily some of my friends also already do this!). I'd love to do Irish dancing, but I don't like the teacher where I'd be able to do it plus my legs/feet can't take it. I may skip ballet also for pilates. Want to try it out, and time is limited. (When you spend approx./at least 55 hrs a week for work with all the commuting). Also maybe finally I get to refresh my French skills at a language class??

There are also some other plans, but some too personal to share.

I like beginnings. Things of something new.

That's why Mondays are my favourite days. Fresh starts.

Grace is something so wonderful. It's a fresh start.

'Cause you gotta lay your whole life down to follow Christ
And He's looking for a people who're willing
to live in a change

Awake my soul

So in need of this today.

And well done Chris Tomlin! No.1 record in the US!!

Awake, awake, awake my soul,

God resurrect these bones
From death to life, through you alone
Awake my soul

Speak to me, word of God, speak to me
Speak to me, word of God, speak to me
I come alive, I’m alive when you speak to me
I come alive, I’m alive when you speak to me

Joku mua piteli siinä,
se oli niin kamalan vahva,
eikä se halunnut päästää irti.
Melkein kuin lihaa ja verta,
suurempi vuori on merta,
se sellaiseksi kasvoi mun päässä.

En odota yllätystä,
en pidätä hengitystä.
Mä haluun jättää sen kaiken taakse,
tää mun pakoni loppuun juostu on.
En mä rohkea oo,
enkä kuolematon,
mut mä tiedän vaan sen,
minkä sydän on tiennyt kauan 
Tää mun pakoni loppuun juostu on.
En aio tuntea pelkoo,
vaikka pelkään, et se ei oo musta kii,
mut mä luulen, et ihminen on sitä vahvempi.
Mä aion antaa sen kuolla,
en enää anna sille tilaa hengittää,
mä en oo, mä en oo sille velkaa yhtään enempää.
