Do what you want to do. / Faz aquilo que desejas.

“Dr. John Kitchin quit a medical career to pursue his passion: skating along the boardwalk of San Diego’s Pacific Beach.” Why? Because a 93 years old man told him: Do what you want to do.
I do not use (or like) to share personal experiences in public. However, this time I will open an exception. This was more or less the same thing my best friend told me before she died, too young and full of wish to live. And, the same way it happened to John Kitchin, this sentence ended up changing my life – although (apparently) in a less radical way.

“O neurologista John Kitchin desiste da carreira como médico para seguir a sua paixão: patinar no passeio ao longo da praia Pacific Beach em S. Diego.” Por que razão? Porque um homem de 93 anos de idade lhe disse: Faz aquilo que desejas.
Não costumo (nem gosto) de partilhar experiências pessoais em público. Mas, neste caso, irei abrir uma excepção. Foi mais ou menos esta a frase que me disse a minha melhor amiga antes de morrer, demasiado jovem e cheia de vontade de viver. E, tal como aconteceu a John Kitchin, esta frase acabou por mudar a minha vida – embora de uma forma (aparentemente) menos radical.

Não se enganem. Se algum de vocês pensa que é sábio segundo os padrões desta era, deve tornar-se “louco” para que se torne sábio.
1 Coríntios 3:18 (NVI-PT)

Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise.
1 Corinthians 3:18 (NIV)

Give Me Strenght / These Are The Days.

(Early in the morning today I asked God for help like this:)

(Early in the afternoon today I got this amazing answer to my plea:)

Pois todo o que pede, recebe; e quem busca, acha; e ao que bate, abrir-se-lhe-á.
Mateus 7: 8

I Would Die For You (Mercy Me).

And I know that I can find You here
‘Cause You promised me You’ll always be there.

You never know why You’re alive
Until you know what you would die for.

Take my life and let it be

consecrated , Lord, to Thee.
.
.
Toma a minha vida e deixa que ela seja
consagrada, Senhor, a Ti.

The words I would say / As palavras que diria

Three in the morning and I’m still awake
So I picked up a pen and a page
And I started writing just what I’d say
If we were face to face
.
.
Be strong in the Lord and never give up hope
You’re gonna do great things, I already know
God’s got His hand on You so don’t live life in fear
Forgive and forget but don’t forget why you’re here
Take your time and pray
And thank God for each day
His love will find a way
These are the words I would say.
