It’s Friday…I’m In Love

…Well, not really but I am in the mood for love songs. For some queer reason, I’ve been developing this affinity to Contemporary Christian music. Teka, bago magtaasan ang mga kilay ng mga bakla, eto lang ang sasabihin ko - hindi lang puro Kylie Minogue ang alam ko at Push the Button ng Sugababes (although yes powerful din yun ;) ). Thanks to the awesome programming of songs by Yahoo Launchcast, I have heard superbly crisp Christian music that aren’t too preachy. The lyrics are of worship and some can even be considered love songs for that significant someone. Nakakatuwa talaga dahil rock ang dating. I would like to share 2 songs that have been so close to my heart (nakanampucha!). These songs have been playing over and over in my player. They're not popular which makes them more special to me. It's like stumbling on something really precious and you sort of know only a few share the secret. If you think the lyrics are great, wait ‘til you hear the real thing. Download na!!! :)

Show You Love by Jars of Clay

Speak - say the words that no one else will ever say
Love - love like the world we know is over in a day

I'm gonna show you love in every language
I'm gonna speak with words that need no form
I'm gonna give you what you never had before

You're beautiful and I am weakened by the force of your eyes
So shine bright to separate the truth from the lies
I'm gonna show you love

I'm gonna show you love in every language
I'm gonna speak with words that need no form
I'm gonna give you what you never had before

So tie me to a tree and let the smoke and ash collect
No, I won't regret to let love do what love will let
We can drown in mixed emotions or walk across an angry sea
This is the cost of being free

I'm gonna show you love in every language
I'm gonna speak with words that need no form
I'm gonna give you what you never had before

*Sigh* Wouldn’t it be nice to sing these songs to someone really worth it? Well, until that time comes and until I’m found …

Here's a song really meant for Him :)

Every Season by Nicole Nordeman

Every evening sky, an invitation to trace the pattern stars
And early in July, celebration for freedom that is ours
And I notice you in children’s games
In those who watched them from the shade
Every drop of sun is full of fun and wonder
You are summer

And even when the trees, have just surrendered to the harvest time
Forfeiting their leaves in late September
And sending us inside, still I notice you when change begins
And I embrace for colder winds
I will offer thanks, for what has been and what’s to come
You are autumn

And everything in time, and under heaven finally falls asleep
Wrapped in blankets white, all creation shivers underneath
And still I notice you, when branches crack and in my breath on frosted grass
Even now in death, you open doors for life to enter
You are winter

And everything that’s new, has bravely surfaced
Teaching us to breathe
What was frozen through, is newly purposed
Turning all things green, so it is with you
And how you make me new, with every seasons change
And so it will be, as you are all creating me
Summer, autumn, winter, spring

Zizzizzit! Thank God it’s Friday...and I’m definitely in love :)

Buendia Jeep

Picture this:

Umaga. Rush hour. Buendia jeep. Punuan. As usual siksikan. Other entities in the jeep are insignificant except for the Clumsy Girl In Shades at ang katabi nyang Knight in Shining Bobblebee.

Eto ang nangyari.

Si Clumsy Girl In Shades naghahagilap ng barya para ibayad. Clumsy nga di ba? For some weird and queer twist of events, nahulog mula sa wallet ang mga barya. Akmang aabutin ng girlalu ang mga baryang nagkalat sa lapag without thinking of poise and image. Dedma naman na. The presence of poise in her life is admittedly a lost cause. Ngunit, datapwat, subalit our Knight in Shining Bobblebee ay nag-initiate ding pulutin ang mga barya sa lapag. Buti na lang hindi ito comedy at hindi sila nag-untugan. Seeing the gentlemanly act, hinayaan ni Clumsy Girl si Knight na pulutin ang mga baryang piping saksi ng lahat. At hindi nabigo si girl. Pinulot ni Knight ang mga ito…isa-isa. Sigh! Buti na lang naka-shades ang girlash kundi mamamay siya sa hiya. After 525,600 minutes of picking up coins, binigay ni Knight ang mga barya ng lola…with a smile. Si lola natameme. Oh yes! Cute si Knight in Shining Bobblebee. Thank God for shades at hindi obvious na for 2 seconds ay napatitig lang ang lola. Shempre, since may training beauty queen ang ating bida, ginather niya lahat ng natitirang composure sabay super smile at nagpasalamat saying… ‘Salamat!’ Egad! How stupid. Yun lang ang nasabi nya! Haller? At shempre loser kasi naka-retainers pa pala si lola. Of all days na hindi dapat suotin ang retainers, ba’t hindi pa ngayon? Anyway, may we say once again say with feelings how cute our knight is! Like powerful cuteness. (Sensya na. Ang storyteller hirap maka-get over!) OK. Going back to the kwento…Habang nagbabalik ng barya ang lola sa wallet, nagmu-multi-task din sya checking out the presence or the absence of THE RING in the fingers of the Cute Knight. Hummm…left…none. Now right….none! Wagi! Absence it is! (Ok…ok…in the course of it all, huwag nating kalimutang nasa jeep tayo kaya’t tayo ay gumalaw) Konti pang andar ng jeep at lumagpas na ang ating mga bida ng Makati Ave. Maluwag na ang jeep. Suddenly, tumango si Knight. Tila may na-sight! Anak ng piso! May remnant pa ng clumsiness ng lola. Kinuha ni Knight ito, sabay smile to the girl showing the piso. Smile. Smile back the girl while taking the piso. This time English na ‘Thank you’ sabay girly giggle ang sagot. Stupid. Sumisigaw ang utak ng lola sa sarili na ‘Anu baaaa…Not powerful. You could’ve done better than that!’ Pero tapos na. As if may magagawa pa siya. Doink! Pinas ito. Hindi normal ang magsabi ng ‘Really nice of you to pick up the evidence of my clumsiness. By the way, can I have your number?’ Like DAH!

Andar. Andar pa ng slight. And then suddenly like a thief in the night…ayan na ang Malugay street. Stop sign. Stop sigh….Bumaba na sya. The Knight in Shining Bobblebee is getting off the jeep while our Clumsy Girl looks at him with dismay. Goodbye my Knight…this is not the end. Sa susunod na Buendia ride!!!
