In a contemplative mood

It’s Saturday morning, 11.30am and I’m in a strangely contemplative mood – it’s another warm morning here in Adelaide. The city is experiencing the worst heatwave – it’s now the 12th or the 13th day of the maximum temperature over 35C. It’s also my first weekend after I returned from Indonesia. I’m still feeling numb after my emotional rollercoaster in the last two weeks – either numb, or well-cocooned within God’s protective love. I do get a bit melancholy as I go to bed everynight, hit by the realisation that I have lost a younger brother – that he has crossed over to an eternal life. That’s it. Gone.

I do my best to be happy and at peace – Proverbs 17:22 says that ‘A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bone’ so I should strive to always be joyful or else I will contribute to my own departure. Hehehe. 🙂

So, I’m back to my old domestic life here in Adelaide – I’ve just done my second batch of laundry and will hang them shortly. I don’t have any specific plans today other than keeping myself cool in the comfort of my living room. I will head to town in the afternoon though, to go to my prayer meeting at my pastor’s house in St Georges.

I've finally relented to the lures of blogging - and for those who care, well, I'm a self-confessed geek who's a wanderer at heart, who thinks and analyses too much, and who's trying hard to hold on to his 7-year old inner persona.
