Sometimes I just forget

Standing behind a shop counter right now... er, long story into which I'm actively deciding not to goh into! Anyway, the strains of 80's songs playing over the speakers kinda triggered me into blog-tion. Funny how I often forget the amount of time I had spent as a teenager just memorizing and belting out songs. Then suddenly you hear a song and the lyrics just come gliding out. Always surprises me how all those lyrics are filed inside my memory somewhere, just waiting for the right musical cues to be released. That just happened again in McD's. A cover version of an old love song came on and yes, if you know me well enough, you'd know that I just couldn't help but sing along.

The strange thing was when I walked into the next place that I'm in now, the original version of that same song came on! Heh! Part of the strange poetry of life that I like musing about. How there's so much wonderful rhythmic detail woven into our daily living. Yesterday for another instance, two major things I've been working on came to their respective closing stanzas - the final exam paper (and an extra re-sit paper) for a course I'm lecturing at Life College and... the Nepal Video! Praise God! Finally, after so many months and 10 hours with Grace yesterday doing the final polishing... we actually have both long and short versions on a DVD!! Went home with that elated feeling one gets after the climax of a great symphony.

This morning as I spent some time with God and even now as I stand here behind this strangely obscure counter, I think about how He orchestrates so many things in life to marvel at... and I wonder why sometimes I just forget.

"Great are the works of the LORD; they are pondered by all who delight in them." (Psalm 111:2)
