yay for may

I've been in my job for just over a year now. Wow! I still can't believe that a 5-day job has turned out to be so much more than what it originally entailed. Thank you God! I was really missing HK two weeks ago... no, I was severely missing HK... and out of the blue I received an email from a dear friend requesting for my home address and within a few days I received a care package from HK complete with the Vine Worship Band's album (yes I know it was so last year but I never got a copy!), one_eighty stickers, a dvd, a kitschy phone dingle dangly thing and even handwritten letters! I was so touched... really felt that God heard my heart and decided to answer it... it was like 'if Ann can't be in HK, let's bring HK to Ann'... incredibly uplifting! And it doesn't end there... my friend Chicken told me a few days ago that she'll be stopping over in Perth before going over to the UK for the rest of her summer holidays! yippee... and I was even able to briefly catch up with Maree who I knew back from the Vine days at my church Riverview over the weekend... ahhhh my HK fix for the week! bliss!

Wishing all the May babies a very happy (belated) birthday including my bro, Kel and Maver.

Here are a few pics taken over the past few days:

gorgeous parakeets near my office

a little something from a magazine bryce gave me before he left town that made me laugh...

Currently loving:
- listening to the Vine Worship Band... it's food for the soul
- my new bookcase... yes I finally pieced it together! now need to sort out my books...
- the rainbows appearing after the rain
- the sound of rain pelting down my roof

I sooo, know what you mean about missing HK, and you lived there a LOT longer than me. I can only imagine...I felt the same way when I got the Vine CD. It came at a moment when I felt certain I would never recieve it. Isn't it amazing when God shows his love for us so clearly. And won't the heavenly reunion be the best thing ever!?!
I'm still wishing there was a way HK could be closer, and I could make it to all those weddings that keep popping up as well. You do realize that pretty much everyone is married now? Or getting married? Honestly, it's out of control!

I totally agree with you... would love to be closer to HK... and yes everyone's getting married these days in HK! soon they will be popping babies out left right and center! hahaha

Won't that be scary! At least I've seen a few of the guys handle kids at MC, so there is some hope...
