My temporary home... Nah, OUR temporary home =)

Temporary Home ♥I've heard this song many times on the radio, but i never knew what it was about. I just thought that it's a 'nice' song to listen to before i sleep. (hehe) But one day i decided to YouTube the music video and Google the song lyrics - and boy was i touched. Never thought i'd actually cry while watching a music video. The lyrics are so meaningful and real. The music video reflects perfectly on what the song lyrics say.




Little boy, 6 years old
A little too used to bein' alone.
Another new mom and dad,another school,
Another house that'll never be home.
When people ask him how he likes this place...
He looks up and says, with a smile upon his face,

"This is my temporary home
It's not where I belong.
Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through.
This is just a stop, on the way to where I'm going.
I'm not afraid because I know this is my
Temporary Home."

Young mom on her own.
She needs a little help, got nowhere to go.
She's lookin' for a job, lookin' for a way out,
Because a half-way house will never be a home.
At night she whispers to her baby girl,
"Someday we'll find our place here in this world."

"This is our temporary home.
It's not where we belong.
Windows and rooms that we're passin' through.
This is just a stop, on the way to where we're going.
I'm not afraid because I know this is our
Temporary Home."

Old man, hospital bed,
The room is filled with people he loves.
And he whispers don't cry for me,
I'll see you all someday.
He looks up and says, "I can see God's face."

"This is my temporary Home
It's not where I belong.
Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through.
This was just a stop,on the way to where I'm going.
I'm not afraid because I know... this was
My temporary home."

This is our temporary home.

Just as i was watching American Idol the other day, i came across this audition which literally brought tears to my eyes - like how the music video did :') this is really 'based on a true story'. it's amazing to see how songs can help express real life situations.

This is the audition video of Paris Tassin :)
I'm rooting for her.



This is indeed our temporary home.

As all of us live in this imperfect world, it's nothing but comforting to know that this place is not permanent. There's a place for us to go to, after our life on earth. A place that has rainbows & sunshine & chipsmores...and where all the beautiful and good things are :)

Out of the box...~

Ever since i started Tumblr-ing, i never stopped doing so. Ok, maybe i did backslide a little once in awhile. But once i log into my account and start to view all the pictures/quotes/random stuffs posted by other users, i find it hard to stop. Really really hard.

It is through Tumblr that i discovered loads of cool stuffs. Things which i didn't even know exist. It really inspires me to think out of the box. Life is so much more fun and exciting when you do so. Seriously! These days i really gotta set timer when i Tumblr.

A guitar pick with words carved on it ;)

Cool stairs.


hehehe!

This is simply creative. The lego blocks are actually containers which you can store things up. And after storing your things, you can stack em' up and actually build something out of it! It kills 3birds with one stone. You can store things, save space, and decorate your house :)


This is for those of us who have more than 3months of holiday. We can do this over-and-over again without having to worry about morning classes :D

Boxes of all sizes stacked up! AWESOME SHIT! ;)

A very creative and meaningful tattoo ;)

A mini book on a ring. I actually think it'd be pretty cool to write your marriage vows in that mini book :) And just in case you forget your marriage vows on your wedding day, you can just flip through the book :D

Moustache hangers! =)

This my friend, is an Ink Calendar. My all-time favourite. The ink will slowly colour each day of the month as time passes by. You don't have to 'X' the dates on your calendars no more! ;)

Flying models.

Don't you just feel like creating a Tumblr account already? :)
