Last Week.. and Officially Missing You by Jayeslee



Janice and Sonia just came to Jakarta last Saturday! It's sad that I missed the chance to see their actual performance at JPCC. I just knew about their visit like on the week before and every ticket was sold out (said a friend).

It's great to have talented Christians rise up and impact the world in many ways. Singing/entertainment industry is certainly one of the way. I feel blessed by even just knowing that these people exist. Many people say that the entertainment industry is really tricky and temptation is ever-present and Christians should shy away from those "dark" world.

Well yes, maybe it's true. Darkness does exist. And that's exactly the whole point of God coming to the world. He comes to save the lost souls and to mend the broken hearts. He also tells us Christians to reach out to those who are in needs. To be like the salt and the light of the world. If what Christians do is to flock around other Christians and form the exclusive hangout inter-Christians group......well... what's the point?

Last Wednesday Jakarta had a gubernatorial election, once in every five years. I also didn't get to vote because I slept the whole day until noon (-__-) .. Well it was a public holiday for Jakarta so there goes my excuse..

I regret it though. Ability to vote is definitely a privilege, and I think I've been too caught up in the laidback, chillax kind of life to actually take this special entitlement for granted. Remember those activists who fought hard for voting rights, giving their all to change the nation. All those lives spent for a better future. For a better Indonesia.

And oh, it's sooo wonderful to know that one of the candidate is Christian!

Second round will be held on 20 September. I'll definitely vote! I don't know who I'll pick yet (haven't been into politics lately) but I'll do my research and read the news.

Praise God!


Officially Missing You

All I hear is raindrops falling on the rooftop
Ooh baby tell me why'd you have to go?
'Cause this pain I feel it won't go away
And today I'm officially missing you

I thought that from this heartache I could escape
But I fronted long enough to know
There ain't no way and today
I'm officially missing you

Ooo can't nobody do it like you
Said every little thing you do
Hey baby say it, stays on my mind
And I, I'm officially..

All I do is lay around, two ears full of tears
From looking at your face on the wall, face on the wall
Just a week ago you were my baby
Now I don't even know you at all, I don't know you at all

Well I wish that you could call me right now
So that I could get through to you some how
But I guess it's safe to say baby, safe to say
That I'm, I'm officially missing you

Ooo can't nobody do it like you
Said every little thing you do
Hey baby say it, stays on my mind
And I, I'm officially..

Well I thought I could just get over you baby
But I see that's something I just can't do
From the way you would hold me
To the sweet things you told me
I just can't find a way to let go off you
Ooo can't nobody do it like you
Said every little thing you do
Hey baby say it, stays on my mind
And I, I'm officially..

It's official
You know that I'm missing you
Oh yes, all I hear is raindrops
And I'm officially missing you
