Liebe...

Liebe ist geduldig und freundlich,
Sie ist nicht verbissen, sie prahlt nicht
und schaut nicht auf andere herab.
Liebe verletzt nicht den Anstand
und sucht nicht den eigenen Vorteil,
sie lässt sich nicht reizen,
sie rechnet das Böse nicht zu,
sie freut sich nicht über die Ungerechtigkeit,
sie freut sich aber an der Wahrheit.
Sie erträgt alles, sie glaubt alles, sie hofft alles, sie duldet alles.
Die Liebe hört niemals auf.


Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.


I saw the german version of 1 Corinthians 13 : 4-8 at the back of a wedding invitation and could not recall the english version of it. So i look up for it on the internet and was quite surprise to see the differences between this 2 usage of the language. I've posted both english and german verses here so u can see the difference (if n only if u can understand both, if not, sorry lah... haha)

Summary

i noe i sound like a 100-year-old here but i must say this... time really flies... i've juz finish the last paper today and it is officially summer holidays for me... therefore, it is time i look back at the first 6 months of my life here in germany n summarise it in a couple of words...

life has been great here, enjoying while suffering at the same time... gone thru ups n downs n i can say i've given my best in everything tat i do, well, not everything... one thing tat i really really really regretted is not being able to socialise wif the locals well, esp wif housemates n classmates... when i first arrived, there's always this gang-ho-ness of telling the world tat ' i can conquer germany!!!!' or 'i will blend in among germans n try not to form a kampung malaysia'... truth is, it is not at all tat easy... first day in class, i tried to step out of my comfort zone n approach someone, a girl sitting next to me n ta-dah, she's the only fren i got for the whole semester... ok, there's this other girl and a fren's fren, so tat makes altogether 3 frens out of 60 student in my class... haih... and even worse, i juz turn down a classmate's invitation to go for a end-of-exam-celebration-party, the last chance in this semester to get to noe other ppl from my class... haih... someone juz throw me a 'loser' hat n i shall gladly wear it now...

studies - so far so good... got nearly all my results already, passed all of them and still waiting for the other 2, shud be able to pass but i hope i can score...

spritually, inner-man or in my case, inner-woman growing stronger but outside-community wise, not so... the original 'gang-ho-ness' of willing to travel so far to church is slowly not sustainable and finding myself slowly not able to accept the church concept here... i miss the big church community back in Malaysia where a lot ppl gather in one place n singing praises out loud...

tat's all folks!

Help! i'm lost!


I will lift up my eyes to the hills -
From where comes my help?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.
