Lent 2014: Heal

One week to Palm Sunday.

I am feeling sad yet calm.

Body: I hope this bug – whatever it is – goes away soon. I need to be able to keep food down slowly. Else, come Tuesday and Thursday, when I just have to show up for projects, I might have no choice but to fast so that my stomach won’t act up. But they are strenuous projects and I will need to eat.

Mind: This terrible language of shame & guilt.

Heart: A sad song.

But I am calm. Or maybe it is fatigue, so I don’t have energy to emote. So for now, it’s “Ok, whatever lah, who cares”.


In an attempt to think happier thoughts (or maybe to stop thinking at all and just be happy!), found lovely pages of watercolour travel kits, DIY watercolour boxes and watercolour shades. I find watercolours difficult, but looking at them makes me happy. After enough looking, decided I would try. Fed my palette some colours from the tubes and left them to dry out. Took out my waterbrush and watercolour pencils and went around randomly.

I can’t watercolour for nuts.

But. Ok, whatever lah, who cares…



“I sent a reply to him: “Nothing of what you are saying is true. You have made it all up yourself.”” – Nehemiah 6:8 (GNT)

“He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD” (Psalm 112:7)

“Who stood up for me against the wicked? Who took my side against the evildoers?If the Lord had not helped me, I would have gone quickly to the land of silence. I said, “I am falling”; but your constant love, O Lord, held me up.Whenever I am anxious and worried, you comfort me and make me glad.” – Psalm 94:16-19 (GNT)
