wounded spirit?

it was an interesting week.
i was already tired after the outing. and monday night had no electricity and so no fan and all the mosquitoes are just having a lovely time.
i = no sleep.
work = i also dunno how i got through it. i had to really save energy wherever i could.

and on tuesday i got an sms from chok that it was yvonne's birthday. so i called at night and after the call which ended late, this time i really thought i was going to faint the next morning.
compared to other nights with about 7 hours sleep, i had 6 this time.

but i was alright the whole day. feeling very much better. even my colleague said i look better. and i was thinking back what happened and i narrowed it down to the above.

maybe physically i was tired, but my spirit kept me going. and while having to walk the journey alone more often, it is obviously not good news and so i feel the physical effect more.

it refreshed my spirit more that i got to talk to someone who is dear to me. and of course things and times have changed so much since 2004 which makes it tough to keep in contact often. and emails from danny was refreshing too; like a first aid; a thirst-quencher.

2 Cor 4:16-18
16Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

for the rest of the week, i was able to witness more to my colleagues and the company's annual dinner on saturday at Sunway.
played bowling with my colleagues later and injured my right hand after 5 frames. i had to bowl with my left for the rest of the 1 and a half games. of course the scores were bad.

sunday = teaching sunday school. and cleaning the house. i decided to do a clean sweep of my room to find a red tie, a church library book, and a camera cable. i knew they were somewhere in my room. and with not a single thing left unturned, i found all 3 of it. saved me money in all 3 areas.

what will the rest of this week give me? we'll see.... :)
