A New Year, A New Day

128 emails from Facebook on the 10th of April! Astronomical! Almost like the 1,900,000 dislikes on the Friday MV!

Thanks everyone for all your well wishes, on Facebook or otherwise! Appreciate every single thoughtful word! :)

It was really nice of the whole CG to sing me a birthday song at JTown Cafe, albeit embarrassing and spontaneous. I didn't expect so many people to make my day! I simply wanted to claim a free cake to share with Jeremy Goh haha.

To W406: I really love the presents, thanks so much!!!! Thanks Enyun, Zoe, Adeline and Hexing for picking out such nice clothes (I don't have much fashion sense)!

I really thank God for all of you for celebrating my birthday, and for His goodness towards me. He gave me the chance to work on another game project, after the previous one ceased a couple of weeks back. Praise God! I thank God for such a generous, honest, helpful and genuine friend like Bryan Dismas Yeo! He introduced me to the job, and was willing the cut down on his salary for my sake. Like wow.

Also I thank God for the work He is doing within me. I will be a better person by the end of this year! :)

A wish I made was for God to continually revive my heart, the hearts of W406, WR, and CHC. May His will be done. Revival is here!

Thanks for an awesome 22nd birthday!

Anyway, the beautiful song currently on my playlist is a new remix of an old hymn by Owl City! There are very few songs in the world which lyrics express my thoughts in every single line. This song is one of them:

How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
And make a wretch His treasure 
How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory 
Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers 
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished 
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection 
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
