peace

After chatting with my Aunt I this morning, I did some surfing and then watch the first episode of the highly acclaimed Heroes.

Having just read the article on Wikipedia, I just realised the extend of the series. I think I may just rewatch the first episode again. Also, I noticed that to watch it on terrestrial tv in the UK, we are probably one of the last few, but then again, I may be wrong because most tv channels listed are subscribed channels.

Anyways, after watching Heroes, I was thinking its about time for me to go to bed. But as daylight starts to pour in, I thought, why not go down to the beach to watch the sunrise?

So there I was quarter to five in the morning all dressed up to go out.

Walking that early in the morning is not that all bad. The sky was bright enough, so there were no streeet lights on (come to think about it, I don't even remember what time the street lights in front went off?). The streets were quiet, in the sense that there were hardly any vehicles on the road. All you can hear is probably the annoying sound of seagulls. But then again, at least it is the sound of nature. ;P Not forgetting the early council workers cleaning the roads, making sure it is all clean when the day (for others) starts.

Speaking of which, it was rather interesting seeing them cleaning the road. Too bad I was slow not to have thought about whipping out my camera phone and take some pics. Normally, for a small area, you see people sweeping the streets, then sweeping them all into the dustpan (or whatever you call it) and into the bin, manually . But for a bigger area, you see guys sweeping rubbish from the pedestrian walk onto the road where another guy will drive by in a road sweeper to sweep up the rubbish. However, this morning, I was fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to walk pass a guy with a leaves blower, in this case, being used as a rubbish blower.

So, that IS a sight for you!

As I continue my walk down to the beach, I realised that I may not be able to see the sun rise because of the haar (pronounced hahr). I was disappointed expecting to see the sun rise, since I thought I missed it with AC. It wasn't all that bad.

I continue to walk along the beach front watching the tides coming in, strong and steady. The crashing of the waves, incessantly on the beach, not too far from me. It was nice. It was serene. There I was in the wee hours of the morning. I felt at peace.


I wished I could have been watching the sun rising but amazingly I wasn't really that disappointed. I felt that there are many other chances to do it. Today, it was a different scene altogether. It was good, nonetheless.

On my way there, all I can think of is Don Moen's Deeper in Love. It is such a beautiful song and I always find peace in it. Its been a long time since I heard this song too...

There is a longing only You can fill
A raging temptest only You can still
My soul is thirsty Lord
To know You as I'm known
Drink from the river
That flows before your throne

Take me deeper
Deeper in love with You
Jesus hold me close in Your embrace
Take me deeper
Deeper than I've ever been before
I just want to love You more and more
How I long to be deeper in love

Sunrise to sunrise
I will seek Your face
Drawn by the Spirit
To the promise of Your grace
My heart has found in You
A hope that will abide
Here in Your presence
Forever satisfied

Take me deeper
Deeper in love with You
Jesus hold me close in Your embrace
Take me deeper
Deeper than I've ever been before
I just want to love You more and more
How I long to be deeper in love

I better go and have a lie down. I have quite a few important things to do today.
