because i will never be forsaken  
today, the one big thing that struck me most was,
"what's the one meaning in my life that can't be destroyed by death?"

i remember my favourite song when i was a kid. when i was afraid of going into the toilet at home alone, or walking into my room in the dark, i'd sing it at the top of my voice. the theory's that, the louder you sing a hymn, the further ghosts and evil spirits will shy away from where you're standing. so the upstairs neighbours probably constantly heard some small kid yelling at the top of her voice at some fixed (bath) time everyday,
"because He lives, i can face tomorrow, because He lives, all fear is gone, because i know, i know He holds tomorrow, and life is worth the living, just because He lives..."

honestly, i still tend to do stuff like that sometimes. except nowadays, when/if i'm scared, i'll tend to hum the song instead. and if those of you from our "unmentionable" cca (according to my sister) still remember, i was reciting the Lord's Prayer out loud in the middle of the dumb solo-walk when yucai came from behind and scared me outta my wits. i guess i probably scared him out of his wits too, so we're quits. poor yucai. always being scared out of his wits and having to thank his lucky stars... haha.

but anyway, not to digress further, indeed, life is worth the living, just because He lives!

p.s: and what is morality without religion? once again, longfellow says it best.
Mood: content
Music: because He lives

hahahaha! my mum actually taught me to recite a buddhist verse if i was scared during solo walk! wahahaha...
i actually get pretty scared of the dark sometimes or when i'm walking alone in the night. the other day i was crossing the bridge downstairs to go home and i was walking so fast cos i was so scared...then i heard a squeak (from a mouse probably) and i ran so fast! hahaha...

yah that bridge at your place is REALLY PRETTY scary. you never know when a hairy hand might reach out from under the bridge and grab you by the legs and drag you down. remember those billy-goat gruffs and the trolls under the bridges?? freak out!!!

the squeak could be from the boards on the bridge lah. no?

to me, the meaning is that the love of God transcends even life and death. God loves us so much, so very much.

and yes, morality itself stems from God.
one of the things which sets Man apart from all other living things is morality. :)
