Im a christian!!

I'm A Christian
May Angelou

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin'."
I'm whispering "I was lost,
Now I'm found and forgiven."

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble
and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak
And need His strength to carry on..

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed
And need God to clean my mess.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible
But, God believes I am worth it.

When I say.... "I am a Christian"
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches
So I call upon His name.

When I say.... "I am a Christian"
I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner
Who received God's good grace, somehow

The year that was.....

Its a week to the new year and I can think of so many reasons as to why the year could be named a disaster!!! But so many things have happened that have made this an amazing year already!! Through all the bad theres always some good! More good comes out of bad!!! And I cannot complain!!! I have the most amazing families, friends and people around me that never cease to serve and do amazing things for me! I have had to many good things happen to me that I can look back on this year! But all in all I am excited to end my year with faitwalkers and start my new year afresh with my amazing families and friendships that I have built so much more over this past year!!!

Over the years you make friends and something that I have learnt over time is that the best friends you make are in elementary school and college! And the ones that you make in college mean the most to you as they are your family away from home. And these are the people who are there for you whether they know it or not! I have made the most amazing friends in college, ones that I would never in a thousand years would mean so much to me! I have seen these people grow so much and help me in my way through college life and in my walk with my one love, JC yall....These are the people that have been there for me whether or not I told them what was going on!!! They just know that you need them!!! It almost sounds like im rambling on again...but you know I appreciate all my friends that have been there for me this past year!!!!!

Owh well the years over and this is my resolution for the New Year 2009.....is to make more amazing friends and cherish the ones that I have this year!!!! Hehehehehehehehehe.........

Here are some of my pictures of the year of the people that I love to death!!! In random order these are my favorite people....

Its done and over with!!!

Its the end of the semester...finals are done and its almost Christmas......and we're not going home this year, and tht makes me sad! But I have families in Des Moines...it makes me happy to know that even if I don't have my mom and dad with me I have people around me that love me enough to share their family with me....I really feel the love as everyone rushes to take the Malaysian home!!! *inside joke* but Malaysians go quick you know!!! I have never spent a holiday without a family since i've been in Des Moines.....one way or the other people go out of the way to make accomodations for me which makes me feel loved!!! Reasons may not always be right but you know what I still feel the love.........I can proudly say that I am American enough to fit in....surprises a lot of families but true dat yall!!! lol... its really early but this makes a lot of sense right now!!!! peace out homies!

Its been a long long long time!!!

Ive been so lazy to blog...well I dont really have much to blog about!! Blah nothing interesting going on in my life is probably why......

International night was the past weekend and one of the mc's of the night.....*drum roll* Danielle...you guessed right me!!!

It was so much fun, it almost felt like me having a real dance performance!!! To begin the night, we had 2 plans one of them was for me to be in the audience and then randomly jump up and down when they started talking about the theme...the second plan was for me to pretend to be late and run in when they almost start the show without me!!! We went with the second plan where I was almost late......i was running down the aisle in a saree...*ahem*, my first attempt at wearing one and it was a success!! No falling or accidentally undressing....hehehe...

But yeah, back to the story from then on we were just having fun and chilling on stage!!! SOOO MUCH FUNN...but of course what is more fun than the food afterwards!!! Yummy Nummy!!! Plus it was cooked by Drake Students stupendously good! The rest of the night was of course filled with empty chit chat and being international students *cheng cheng cheng* picture taking and here are some of the pics of the night!!! Enjoy.....

"My little family....funny story but before we took this picture Jayesh had his arms around Jinit instead of on Arpna's shoulder and so Aprna yelled, 'Why do you have your hands on his shoulder put them on mine!"
"Random people picture"

"Some of the girls with Earl, one of the other MC's"
"The boys were having a lil fun of their own!!!"

"And of course the picture of the night...me in a saree!!"

My lil' family!!!

True to words you always have yourself a family wherever you go! I have my own real family consisting of my mum, dad, sister, myself and the dogs! Then I have my church family...awesome people who have changed my life immensely, my host family, who have graciously let me become part of the family over the past 3 years, then I have my own little family made up of these guys...who started of just as acquaintances some because of the sleeping patterns we had and other because of the similarities in interests! These guys have grown to be people who know you in and out, the ones you turn to in times of need for comfort and solace. And the people that you are most comfortable with to be yourself and have fun!!

How interesting life is!

So recently i've been thinking about what I want! Something that I may have wanted for a while now but never really seeking it out due to certain reasons... But now that its so near and so close at hand I really don't know what I want anymore! And for some reason its driving me nuts from the inside out just because I have no flipping idea what to do or want anymore. It is so easy for me to personally want something so bad then when its right there in arms length criticize it and draw away or at the same time draw away and want much from something that I don't even know i want!Owh I am a such a cancerian! IDEAS???
