Undone, released in 2010, according to Wikipedia, by FFH (also known as Far From Home) was recommended to me by GrooveShark Radio, I immediately like the male singers (Jeromy Deibler) voice. Beside the song, I also added some songs of FFH into the playlist as follows:

The following video is a live performance:

(Working for radio station looks like a lot of fun, free live concert, part of employee benefit, I guess :)

I like this part of lyrics:

The secrets I keep Are tearing me up inside I try to hide and then I wonder why

I wonder why Im still running when I know theres no escaping

Come undone, surrender is stronger

By the way, somehow, he reminds me of Fisher Stevens, who plays Chuck Fishman in Early Edition.

I have listened to Blessings on radio many many times, but never thought to share on SotD, because I didnt want to post about a song by intention. It must occur to me out of the blue.

Before the videos of the song, there is a story behind the song, Id like you to watch first, Laura Story explains it in this clip:

This video is why Id like to share this song. She told the story about her early marriage situation and husbands health condition and humored with a joke before telling the real problem. She also has another story-behind-video on her YouTube channel. Now, its the song from live performance.

There is also a YouTube-generated channel1, didnt know YouTube provides auto-generated account for subscription.

Sometimes, he gives us what we need rather than what we want Laura Story
[1] is gone.

I like how this music video spread the message. You will expect the film would catch their sadness, their troubling faces, their own stories, as you see how they stand in front of camera. But it doesnt, it catches something else, things we think its impossible.

While I was watching this video over and over again, I remembered something in my past, a realization I would call. Well, it is something I wasnt expecting and I am glad I remember that finally.

I just discovered this music by a very strange way. I was notified that there is a new upload from one of my subscriptions. As always, I visited YouTube home page by bookmark, but I was switching to another page for other things. Planning to check out that video after I finish on the other page.

Out of blue, this song was played in background. I have no idea where that music came from until I saw the tab was supposed to be YouTube home page was not. Glad, it is a good song and its daytime, I liked it, or this would really scare the hell out of me.

The strange thing is the URL indicated that it was recommended video like you click one video on Recommended. I went Packard one in browser history, but I couldnt went forward to go back to this video.

This is no way I had this video link in my system before except if it was showed in Recommended section and I had never heard of the singer (or band, not sure) or this song. I was 100% I didnt miss click because I didnt click anything. I use Pentadactyl, I type in commands to open new bookmark, in this case YouTube homepage, and to switch tabs.

I dont think YouTube has something to do with this, I doubt they would do such thing, beside its not yet 4/1 and that is not a rickrolld video.

All I can say is thats a fate, though I dont want to use that word, but thats the best way to put it.

Maybe He know I like Christian music?

Use this at midnight: Dont give up.

(If you are so interested what video I was going to watch, here it is. Yes, I know I am a vegan1.)

I first listened to this song a few months back on WBCL. I cant find an official music video, but this live performance recording is very nice.

Britt Nicole has other great songs, such as Headphones, Safe, World That Breaks, Dont Worry Now, Glow, Set The World On Fire (I love this one because of the name), and more. Just search on YouTube.

WBCL is a nice (Internet) radio station. I added it into my iradio script, iradio 18. And yes, I do listen to Christian/gospel music and I am not a religious person.

I heard WBCL via FFRC, which is a feline rescue center, they have cute kitties and kindhearted volunteers! I even created an unofficial page for it.

Dear Mrs. Susan Morgan,

I am sorry for your health condition, but please allow me to bring up your original letter first:

subject From Mrs Susan Morgan

From Mrs Susan Morgan

BP [38 Rue Des Martyrs Cocody

Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire

I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Mr.Abram Morgan, who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2004. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.

Before his death we were both born again Christian. since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $2. 5 Million (Two Million and Five Hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) in the bank here in Abidjan in suspense account.

Presently, the fund is still with the bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that i have seriouly sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavour that the house of God is maintained.

The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I dont have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I dont want my husbands efforts to be used by unbelievers. I dont want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence i know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the Lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace.

I dont need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husbands relatives is around me always I don't want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank here in Abidjan. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the Lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life.

Contact me through my e-mail address for more informations, any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply. Remain blessed in the Lord.

Yours in Christ,
Mrs Susan Morgan.
Obviously, we have never met before or you would know I can read Chinese and greeting me in Chinese. You are currently in Abidjan, Lagunes Côte d'Ivoire, I guess you've been many places, such as China and Japan.

I am overwhelmed that you picked me to follow your will. If I do get the money, I am willing to dedicate my life for propagating the word of God, ... to look after orphans and widows in their distress... James 1:27, NIV.

US$2.5 Million (Two Million and Five Hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) are not a small number. That will be a big challenge for me to manage, but I am sure that I am capable to do well in names of God. ...with God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26, NIV.

I understand that you don't want to communicate on phone, under your current circumstance, that must be hard to find someone can trust and also a dedicated Christian. prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6, NIV, he always listen to everyone with faithful heart. Soon, he will bring you to whom you are keeping seeking.

Lastly, ...We constantly pray for you...that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith. 2 Thes. 1:11, NIV, I will pray for your for your health.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that I am no Christian, I am kind of atheist.

Sincerely yours,
Yu-Jie Lin
