Love like YOU love, even when it hurts

November 30

Dear heavenly Father,
while I am on this journey through life,
I pray that I may always listen for Your voice, whether it is for praise or discipline.

Please, please may I always know Your presence,
especially if I am to journey through life’s valleys.

When I am weak fill me with Your strength, and help me to love like You love,
even when it hurts.

May nothing matter to me more than becoming the person You want me to be.

FiLLed with FERVOR

November 29

O Lord, enable me to live the life of saints and angels.
Take me out of the irritability, the sensitiveness, in which my soul lies,
and fill it with Thy fullness.

Breathe on me with that Breath which infuses energy and kindles fervor.
In asking for fervor, I ask for all that I can need,
and all that Thou canst give.

In asking for fervor, I am asking for faith, hope and charity,
in their most heavenly exercise;

I am asking for perception of duty,
I am asking for sanctity, peace and joy, all at once.

Nothing would be a trouble to me,
nothing a difficulty, had I but a fervor of soul.

Lord, in asking for fervor, I am asking for Thyself,
for nothing short of Thee, O my God.

Enter my heart, and fill it with fervor by filling it with Thee.

-John Henry Newman-

Serving YOU

November 28

Loving heavenly Father,
hallowed be Thy name,
Thou art from everlasting to everlasting,
the Father of my Savior the Lord Jesus Christ and
one with the Holy Spirit in the blessed Trinity.

I come boldly but reverently into Your holy presence in the name of Jesus.
I come to You washed in the blood of the Lamb and
knowing that I am holy and blameless in Your sight,
O God, by Your altogether lovely Lord Jesus.

I love You with all my heart, soul and mind.
I am unworthy of Your love, mercy and long-suffering.
You have been generous to my family and me.

Grant, I beseech, every gift of the Holy Spirit according to Your sovereign will
that I may lift up the name of Jesus for His glory alone.
I confess I have sinned in word, thought, and deed,
that I have been unfaithful in the face of Your faithfulness to me.
Wash me in the blood of the Lamb for I am truly sorry for my sins.
Renew in me the joy of my salvation.
Grant me wisdom according to Your promise, integrity, and compassion
that I may be fitted to serve You in the fulfillment of the Great Commission
until Jesus comes to calls me home.

All this I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

To be like YOU

November 27

Father, I want to be like You.
I want my heart to be as big as Yours.

As far as revival is concerned,
I ask You to find those who will be guileless and
entrust them with the wonderful treasures of Your power and Your presence.

Please don’t hide from us because our hearts are divided.
Make us one big family rejoicing Your love.

Lord, I hunger for Your Word,
but I don’t believe that knowing You is only about memorizing Scripture
or learning about how You’ve moved in the past.

Knowing all that is valuable only if I can trust You like a little child.

I’m so glad, Father,
that loving You with a childlike spirit is all that is necessary to please You,
and knowing that makes me love You more.

-John Arnott-

live so completely within me
that all my life will be the natural outpouring of the
divine power- the consequence of an indwelling
Spirit of purity and truth.

Truth in LOVE; Gifts of GRACE

November 26

Lord Jesus Christ,
grant me Your special grace to speak Your Truth in love
and to challenge every way that would exclude Love from Truth or Truth from Love.

You who are both Truth and Love,
enter my poor heart and mind afresh to bring forth this
miracle of Truthful Love and Loving Truth for which
I pray in Your most worthy Name. Amen.

-Michael Cassidy-

Come, Holy Spirit,
and daily increase in us Thy manifold gifts of grace;
the spirit of wisdom and understanding;
the spirit of counsel and ghostly strength;
the spirit of knowledge and true godliness,
and fill us with the spirit of Thy holy fear, now and for ever.

-Gelasian Sacramentary-

Lead our life according to Thy good pleasure...

November 25

Grant, O heavenly Father,
that we so faithfully believe in Thee,
and so fervently love one another, always living in Thy fear,
and in the obedience of Thy holy law and blessed will,
that we, being fruitful in all good works,
may lead our life according to Thy good pleasure in this world and,
after this frail and short life, obtain the true and immortal life,
where Thou livest and reignest, world without end. Amen

-Thomas Becon –

O merciful Lord, of Thy bountiful goodness,
receive us evermore into Thy protection,
maintaining and increasing from day to day Thy grace and goodness towards us,
until Thou hast brought us unto the full and perfect unity of Thy Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord, who is he true light of our souls.

Fix upon Thyself..

November 24

O Light eternal, transcending all created suns,
cause Thy bright beams to shine into our hearts.
Purify, warm, enlighten, and quicken our souls with all their powers:
so that they may find their rest, their joy, in Thee.

The days of this present life are short and evil,
full of troubles and sorrows:
when wilt Thou bring the reign of Satan to an end:
and grant to us to walk at liberty,
without trials or temptations,
seeing Thy face, and wearing Thy likeness?

Until then, preserve us, O Thou eternal Truth;
come unto us, O heavenly Love;
draw our affections away from earthly things,
and fix them upon Thyself.

Blessed are they, O Lord,
whom Thou choosest, and whom Thou causest to approach unto Thee.

-Thomas A Kempis-

Glory to HIM

November 23

Glory to our ascended Lord that He is with us always.

Glory to the Word of God, going forth with His armies conquering and to conquer.

Glory to Him who has led captivity captive and given gifts for the perfecting of His saints.

Glory to Him who has gone before to prepare a place in His Father’s home fo us.

Glory to the Author and Finisher of our faith;

That God in all things maybe glorified through Jesus Christ,

To whom be all worship and praise, dominion,

And glory;

Now and forever and ever. Amen

Does truth still work?

When I attended a Christian college back in the Paleolithic Era, one of the key maxims that was drummed into our shaggy heads was this:
All truth is God’s truth. In other words, anything that is true and dependable is from God. God is truth, and therefore the essence of what is factual and knowable and truthful stems from Him alone.

For instance, marriage is a foundation of society because God originated it in Genesis between a man and a woman. Later, Jesus honored it with His presence at a wedding. Clearly, God presents marriage as a basic bulding block of a righteous society. Marriage is good because God says it is.

Or this: Lying is wrong. God included this teaching in codification of His rules in Exodus 20. And He repeatedly had Scripture writers tell us that lying is wrong. God says lying is wrong, so there is no question that it is.

Some people think this kind of thinking doesn’t work anymore. Postmodernists refuse to consider something to be true just because God said it is. They want truth to be whatever a person finds truth to be.

If you tell a lie and it gets you a promotion, and no one finds out, then it’s okay – if worked. If you can get your accountant to cheat on your audit – and the authorities don’t find out – you’ve earned some extramoney.

It doesn’t take a degree in philosophy to recognize that this create-your-own-truth world is a dangerous place. No set boundaries, no moral restrictions, and no basis for an organized society. And most dangerous of all-no need of God.

Look for the truth. It’s another way of seeing that God is there, and He is at work in the world.

-Dave Branon- [taken from ODJ 2008]

Read Psalm 40:9~12
Let Your unfailing love and faithfulness always protect me (v.11)

Teach me Your ways, O Lord, that I may live according to Your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor You. - Psalm 86:11 –

Strengthen US

OcTOber 11

Preserve us, O most holy LORD God,
from the cares of this life, that our feet be not entangled by them;
and deliver us from spiritual hindrances and temptations, that we be not wearied and cast down;
let not the world and the things of the world deceive us:
keep us from the power and malice of the devil.

Rather than all this world's allurements, give us the blessed unction of Thy Holy Spirit;
and drive from our hearts the love of worldly things,
by pouring into them the love of Thy holy name.

Confirm us in Thy ways, O Lord, by the grace of Thy Holy Spirit.
Strengthen us with might so that no trouble or temptation may draw us away from Thee.

-Thomas A Kempis -

Know that I am blest

OCtober 10

It is not that I feel less weak, but Thou
Wilt be my strength; it is not that I see
Less sin; but more of pardoning love with hee,
And all-sufficient grace. Enough! And now
All flutering thought is stilled; I only rest,
And feel that Thou art near, and know that I am blest.

- Frances Ridley Havergal -

We beseech THee, Almighty God, to behold our prayers,
and to pour out upon us Thy loving tenderness;
that we who are afflicted by reason of our sins, maybe refreshed by the coming of our Savior; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Victories

October 9

Through death immortality has come to all,
and through the incarnation of the Word
God’s universal providence has been made known.

God the Word revealed Himself through a body
that we might receive an idea of the unseen Father;
and He endured humiliation at men’s hands that we might inherit incorruption.

In Himself He was in no way injured,
for He is impassible and incorruptible, the very Word and God;
but He endured these things for the sake of suffering men,
and through His own impassability He preserved and saved them.

In short, the victories achieved by the Savior through His incarnation are so great and so many
that, if one wished to describe them,
it would be like gazing across the open sea and trying to count the waves.

- St. Athanasius -

Hosanna in the highest!

October 8

Hosanna in the highest!

Remember me, O Lord,
with the favor that Thou bearest unto Thy people.

O visit me with Thy salvation;
that I may see the felicity of Thy chosen,
and rejoice in the gladness of Thy people,
and give thanks with Thine inheritance.

There is glory which shall be revealed;
for when the Judge cometh some shall see Thy face cheerful,
and shall be placed on the right,
and shall hear those most welcome words,

“Come, ye blessed.”
They shall be caught up in clouds to meet the Lord;
they shall enter into gladness,
they shall enjoy the sight of Him,
they shall be ever with Him.

Feb 17 and Oct 7

February 17

O God, I asked for strength that I might achieve;
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for help that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.

I asked for riches that I might be happy;
I was given poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for power that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life;
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I asked for but everything I hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am among all men most richly blessed.

- A Confederate Soldier -

October 7
O LORD, take us into Thy care and keeping;
lest our cruel enemy gain the advantage over us.
We fight under Thy banner, that our enemy may know that our confidence is
in Thy aid, in Thy strength and wisdom.

Where Thou art,
O LORD is the land of lierty, and of everlasting blessedness.
Give quietness to our minds, and grant that we may have some
taste of the everlasting joys of Thy heavenly kingdom;
whereby those worldly things which
we so earnestly seek and so eagerly embrace shall seem loathsome and defiled.
So shall we refuse them as bitter and worthless things,
and fervently desire the blessedness of Thy heavenly kingdom,
where there are pleasures for evermore.
And unto Thee, LORD Jesus, be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

- Thomas Cranmer -


STRENGTH for your DAY, a prayer book from my mum.

I will try my best to post up every prayer inside this book.

First of all, let me post up the foreword of this book.

There are three stages in prayer. The first is basically "God bless me, Mommy, and Daddy," with a shopping list to a God who is there to deliver our wishes. The second is once we have come alive to the Lord Jesus as our Saviour. The Holy Spirit brings us into a personal relationship and prayer normally moves into worship, conversation, sharing and desiring God's will, although remnants of the first srot of praying can sadly linger and confuse. The thrid is when we begin to hunger and thrist for God, to become like St. Paul when he longs to know Christ, the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings. Here paryer starts to explore the deep wonders of God in devotion and worship as well as in far more comprehensive intercession. This is where this marvelous book takes us.

When Louise Kendall talked about her exploration into the prayers of Christians across the centuries, her passion, excitement, and deepened devotion to God glowed from her heart. She had been ready to explore the prayers of saints who had different Christian affiliations and found the throb of her own heart matching theirs. Although extempore prayer is still integral to her prayer life, she discovered that in written prayers there could be gathered expressions of deep devotion, phrases with profound insight, and a range of confession, worship and intercession that left much extempore praying in the fading shadows.

That Louise and RT have now turned that great discovery into this book is a gift to the whole church. Not all the prayers will ring bells with us, but most will strike an inner chord and will come to be part of our own prayer life in years to come. We move over the centuries with prayers from Augustine, Corrie ten Boom, Newman, Campolo, Luther, Chaike, Lancelot Andrewes (who blew my prayer life into new orbits), and so many others. Our hearts are warmed by Timothy Dudley-Smith’s beautifully poetic yet insightful prayers, with glorious phrases like “the choir of stars.” I am so glad that the prayer (February 17) of the Confederate soldier just before he died in the battle of Richmond is here, as I use it frequently. Whenever I quote it everyone wants a copy… it is penetratingly moving. You will want t mark the prayers that stand out for you as you use the book across a year and then return to embrace them as part of your own devotion. It will help us all to move deeper into true prayer to our glorious Lord. For all the passion, research and hard work that has goneinto this gem of a book we are all in the debt of two very special people....
Louise and R. T. Kendall.

This prayers book has 365 days of prayers. Every single day comes with different prayers.
Since today is 7th of October 2008, I will start with the prayers for October 7.

Besides, I will also post up the February 17 prayer, the prayer which Rt. Rev. Dr. Michael frequently used.

Till then, stay tune with my 365 timeless prayers and conversations with GOD!

Exam!!! Exam season now!!

yo yo! Long time didnt update blog! Sorry!! Hahaha...
Busy preparing for my finals exam now! Here, i want to share a verse which is very useful for exam! here it is!

Proverbs 3: 5~6
Trust the LORD with all your heart, and don't depend on your own understanding.
Remember the Lord in all you do, and he will give you success.

Well, Gambate to myself!! hehe... =)

A steadfast STILLNESS….

Psalm 37: 7 ~ Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil device!

The typhoon was massive. It slammed into the eastern coast of China, the eye-wall brushing past the small village and the underground church where we were bound.

Our plane was grounded, so we decided to go over land. We arrive 24 hours late, discovering to our amazement that members of the small church had waited for us, singing songs through the night. The original congregation of 40 had grown to over 600.

On the way out of the service, as all gathered their homemade wooden folding chairs, an elderly woman in an impeccably clean blue flowered blouse took me by the hand. She pressed it to her heart and through the translator said, “You don’t have to leave. Why don’t you just stay with us?”

Though most of her teeth were gone, her smile was radiant. She placed her gnarled hand on my head, and we laughed together at my baldness. When we approached the van and it became clear that I was not free to stay and enjoy her hospitality, a calm settled over her that is impossible to describe. As she became still, her smile transformed. The deep wrinkles still formed the pattern of her smile, but her eyes, no less bright, looked away. I became aware that this was the moment I had come to China to experience. “This is the face of lament,” a voice inside my heart spoke.

I have had the privilege to know perhaps a dozen believers who have suffered for their faith. They have come from all walks of life, rich and poor and from every corner of the world. Yet they all had this in common, that same quality – a steadfast stillness.

Grief resolved through lament settles deep in our souls. There, like the ballast in a ship, it keeps us upright in the midst of life’s typhoons. It is an accomplishment earned through simple acceptance of the Word that speaks “Be still” (Mark 4: 39)

The storms, the brokenness, the pain, the confusion, the disappointment that comes when someone drops into your life for a little while and is then suddenly swept away, all can be transformed, transfigured, clamed into a peace and a stillness that is “righting” and steadying and steadfast.

-Suffering can have a calming effect on our souls-

Daily devotional from “Our Journey”

A little HOPE

Jimmy O’Neill, fifteen, has a lot to worry about. Born with cystic fibrosis, an inherited lung disease, he has been hospitalized five or six times a year since age six. Every day he takes twenty-five pills and spends twenty minutes in physical therapy.

Whenever he ahs a cold, he has to receive intravenous medication to fight off the infection. And if he feels a little sick, he immediately has to go to the hospital to see what’s wrong. “ My body is sort of like a car that everyone wants to keep in tip-top shape,” he explains. As a result, he often misses fifty to sixty days of school each year.

Jimmy also has a future to worry about. “I have to realize that, no matter what, I’ll never be totally independent,” he says. “There’s always going to have to be someone there for me.”

Yet Jimmy doesn’t worry. “There are some things in life you have choices about and there are things you don’t” he explains. “God will take care of whatever is going to happen.”

So instead of worrying, Jimmy has hope and faith in God. “You always have to have a little hope,” he says, “because if you run out of that, there’s nothing worth anything. You might as well give up right then and there.”

Jimmy O’Neill has learned how faith helps overcome worries. In contrast, the Istraelites in the desert worried about how to find food.

Read Exodus 16: 2-15 to learn how God took care of their worries.

Where’s your focus?

Gary Richards was appalled when he saw the tapes in his friend Tim Fellman’s car. “How can you listen tothis trash?” he asked as he read the sexually explicit and raunchy song titles.

“Give it a rest,” Tim shot back. “These groups know music. Who cares about the words? Stop being a crusader.”

The conversation came back to haunt Tim that Wednesday night in Bible study. The group read the Bible and tried to apply its principles to their lives. They focused on how being a Christian shapes your priorities and interests in life and how it affects everything you do.

Tim was challenged by the discussion and wanted to talk about it with Gary. On the way home from the Bible study, they talked about friendships and being honest. Then Gary asked. “What does all this say about your music, Tim? Can you listen t raunchy songs and read your Bible at the same time?”

Tim was steamed, “Sure I can!” he shouted, hoping Gary would back off. Which he did. They rode in silence until Tim dropped off Gary at home.

Two weeks later Gary found a note stuffed through the slot in his school locker. “You were right,” it smply said. “The songs I liked and God’s word don’t mix. I have changed to more positive music. Thanks.”

Tim had discovered how focusing on God’s word can change your values and priorities. God gave Joshua the same advice, and it guided him to be successful as God’s leader.

Read the advice in Joshua 1: 6-9

Had learn a lot from yesterday discipleship.
Finished study of the book of Roman.

Studied chapter 6 and 7 of Acts which is about Stephen, a man full of faith. He did great wonders and miraculous signs among the people. However there are opposition arose, they produced false witnesses and accused Stephen. At the end, Stephen was stoned to death. But the most interesting part is the last verse of chapter 7 saying “Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell ASLEEP.
So, Stephen didn’t died because of the severe injuries and pain caused by stoning, but he just feel asleep without feeling any pain.

Give and You'll receive

Yay! I had gave my 10% tithe to God. I had earned my 1000usd this few month and 100usd was given to God as tithe. Thanks to Him for blessing me so much! I believe the amount I given is much more smaller than what God wanted to bless me!

In bible said, give and you will receive. So, if you want to receive more, give as God want you to give. Dont forget to pay your tithe to God. You will be given more in return! BUt of course you dont give because you want to receive more.. You give because you LOVE~

Monday, May 5, 2008


What a long break of not posting anything here.. That doesnt mean that, GOD didnt favor me all this while.... He is still very faithful and loves much more than I do... even though I had done so many things which disappointed him.

He is still the same today, yesterday and forever.. Only I had became lazier to write my testimony here. Argh! Hate myself like this! Got to fuel myself up!! Spend time with GOD!!

Let me give a new testimony here...
Yesterday, was interviewing a patient. Thank GOd that I got more information from here than the day before yesterday... Because of not bringing the translation (english-russian) question, I didnt ask much on that day, so yesterday I went with the translation paper and got to get more information. hehe..THank GOD....

Got the permission for extraclass on Wednesday....Permission was easily gotten... At first we all thought that it might be quite hard but it came out differently.

Learn a lot from the business class yesterday. Praise GOd...

I found it~

Thank God... was looking for an envelope of money.... kept on praying that I could found it... and yea..! I found it today!! Thank God!

Receive this mail from a pastor of my Church here.... share it with you all!

Dear Beloved of God, WCCI Leaders!
Here are some notes on an important point that the church often
misses. I feel the Lord wants you to know about it...
Let's read,

I Cor 3:16, " Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that
the Spirit of God dwells in you?"

I Cor 6:19 amp, "Do you not know that your body is the temple - the
very sanctuary - of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you
have received as a Gift from God? .."

2 Cor 6:16, "What agreement can there be between a temple of God and
idols? For we are the temple of the living God; even as God said, I
will dwell in and with and among them, and I will be their God and
they shall be My people."

Ephesians 2:19-22 amp, "Therefore, you are no longer outsiders
excluded from the rights of citizens, but you now share citizenship
with the saints [God's own people, consecrated and set apart for
Himself], and you belong to God's own household. You are built
upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus
Himself the chief Cornerstone. In Him the whole structure is joined &
welded together harmoniously and it continues to rise & grow into a
holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and
sacred to the presence of the Lord]. In Him and in fellowship with
one another you yourselves also are being built up into this structure
with the rest, to form a fixed abode [dwelling place] of God in &
through the Spirit."

1. When we come together in the Podfak or any other gathering place,
we are not in the house of God. You read correctly, we are not IN the
"House of God". We cannot be IN the house of God, because we actually
ARE the house of God. It is two different things. Re-read Eph above
and you'll notice that together we ARE the house of God. It goes
with Nic's teaching Saturday. We are 'being built up into this
structure...' WOW. WE are the house of God!! Say it, "I AM THE HOUSE
OF GOD! Not some building, but ME!" Many Christians have theology
based more on Old Testament rather than the New and they don't know
it. In Pre-Jesus times the Presence of God was in a room. NOW, we
are the dwelling place, the presence of God. HALLELUIA! Meditate on
these scriptures until they become a reality to you and you end up
jumping up and down in excitement for what God has done in you. [I

2a. For us to say, "Welcome to the house of God", we're saying we can
only find God's Presence in a building. By using inaccurate words,
we -accidentally- deny that God lives within each of us, saying that
He dwells in the Podfak (or whatever building we call the House of
God). I know that each of you know He dwells within you. Sometimes
we use phrases we've heard others say and we need to check them by the
Word. His Holy sanctuary [us together] is becoming more beautiful and
more glorious as we walk more in holiness and unity day by day.
THAT'S the House of God=all of us together, any day, any time, any
where and everywhere believers are!!

2b. You ask, "Ok, Pamela, what do I say to start church service?"
Remember James said we'd receive Wisdom if we ask? Let's all ask!
God is saying it's TIME for us to go WAY HIGHER in our opening
statements!! He told me that I was to tell you this one thing AND
THEN challenge you to reach much higher for vision of what the service
is all about, then set the tone for it by the opening statement! If
you need it, here are 3 starters ... Use them as a starting point to
makes whoever opens responsible to have vision!!! Yea!

"Welcome to Word of Christ Church International, a part of the
Generation that is winning the World for Jesus!"

"Welcome to a gathering of sold-out, radical, lovers-of-the-Most-High
God, where Jesus Is Lord, Love Reigns, and Miracles Prevail!"

"Welcome to where a PART of the House of God is gathering. This part
is called WCCI and we're blessed by your presence!"

Remember, don't be held back if God gives you a Word that pushes
further with HIM! Ever notice when God gives correction, more vision
& revelation follows?
I Love ya all, have a blessed week with HIM!

"Seek the FACE of God, Seek His Heart, and everything else falls in line."

Hey Guys!

I had decided to change this technology blog into a blog which reflects God's glory, His favor, everything He had done in my daily life.... to REMIND myself that
I need HIM ...
I should depend on HIM in whatever I do....
I should put HIM as my first priority...
I should commits everything to HIM...
I should PRAY whenever I met PROBLEMS...
I should give THANKS in everything....
I should LOVE HIM as much as HE loves ME!

Thus, I will write about my testimonies here.... Everyday, there must be
something God had did for you,
something God had tought you,
something God had done to show His love to you,
something God had bless you!

Sound monitors protect premature babies

INDIANAPOLIS - Warning lights hover over the snoozing patients in Riley Hospital for Children's neonatal intensive care unit, ready to flash whenever sound levels creep beyond normal conversation.

As decibels rise, the colors on the new monitoring system change from green to yellow to red, hushing chatty parents or doctors so the babies get the rest they need to develop.

Noise louder than roughly the level of conversation can cause premature or sick babies' hearts to beat too fast or too slowly, said Dr. William Engle, a neonatologist at Riley. And interfering with babies' vital signs or sleep can slow development and healing because their bodies do most of that work while they sleep.

"The function of babies is to grow and develop, and in between they eat," he said.

Preemies also need quiet so they can learn their mother's voice and their brains can figure out how to process sound, things that normally happen in the last trimester before birth.

"It's definitely a great idea," Dr. Bob White, a neonatologist at South Bend's Memorial Hospital, said of the monitoring system in Riley's neonatal intensive care unit, or NICU.

White, who is not involved in creating or distributing the system, helped write national noise standards for NICUs that have been adopted by the American Institute of Architects and are used in most hospital design.

Inventor Chris Smith hopes doctors around the country agree with White. He has sold his Sonicu system to several Indiana hospitals and wants to expand nationally.

Smith, 43, had no training as a sound engineer and no plans to become an entrepreneur when his son Sean was born five weeks premature in 2000. But he noticed Sean flinch in response to bright light in the NICU of St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital, and he wound up designing a system to soften the unit's lighting.

Then the nurses asked him what he could do about sound.

"That's really when I realized that there was no good way out there to measure sound, other than your standard, hand-held meter," he said.

Babies born too soon lose the muffling effect of the womb before their ears can filter sound, White said.

"The sounds ... come from all different directions and all different sources, and they're often associated with unpleasant sensations for the baby," White said.

NICUs are rife with noise pollution created by employees, equipment and excited family members.

"There's no good way for the nurses or doctors to walk up to a parent, tap them on the shoulder and say, 'You're being too loud,'" Smith said. "That's confrontational."

The former car mechanic filled hours of spare time in the evenings and on weekends researching sound standards and building a system.

Smith, who tinkered in radio and TV electronics in high school, hired an acoustical engineer to help. They created a ceiling-mounted system of microphones that picked up sound and funneled data back to a large control panel.

"There was a lot of wiring, a lot of labor, a lot of programming," he said.

St. Vincent paid around $100,000 for the system, which it installed about five years ago. Smith had no interest in shopping his invention to other hospitals because the work took so much time.

Then Riley Hospital, also in Indianapolis, called a few months later.

"They basically said, 'I want that,'" he said.

The latest version of Sonicu can feed a stream of both sound and light data digitally to a computer. It offers the cone-shaped warning lights and can quickly dim the lighting in a room that gets too noisy. It also can make lighting mimic the sun by brightening toward noon and then fading, which also helps babies sleep well.

White, the neonatologist who helped write the national standards, said he knows of no other NICU monitoring system that sophisticated.

Smith has sold systems to a handful of Indiana hospitals, so far to good reviews. He said the systems can cost anywhere from $40,000 to $400,000, depending on each hospital's needs.

The monitors have taught hospital staff to limit the number of groups making rounds at the same time because having more than one group in a room raises noise levels dramatically.

Most NICUs are filled with noise that can't be helped, White said. Fans in the heating and ventilation system have to operate almost constantly, and the monitors need to beep.

The Sonicu system reins in the main noise maker that can be controlled.

"People think, 'Oh gosh, I didn't realize, I'll go over here so I won't have to talk so loud,'" White said. "It really is something that addresses the human factors that we do have some control over."

Judge OKs class action lawsuit vs. Microsoft

A federal judge in Seattle said on Friday consumers may continue a class action lawsuit against Microsoft Corp. because of how it advertised computers loaded with Windows XP as capable of running the Vista operating system.

The lawsuit claimed Microsoft's labeling of some PCs as "Windows Vista Capable" was misleading because many of those computers were not powerful enough to run all of Vista's features, including the "Aero" user interface.

U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman certified the class action suit but scaled down its scope to focus primarily on whether Microsoft's "Vista Capable" labels created artificial demand for computers during the 2006 holiday shopping season, and inflated prices for computers that couldn't be upgraded to the full-featured version of Vista, which was released at the end of January 2007.

Neither of the two people who filed the original lawsuit participated in a program Microsoft devised to help people who bought new computers before Vista's launch upgrade later to the new operating system, but they argued nonetheless that people who bought "Vista Capable" computers were harmed because they could only run a basic version of Vista.

The judge said if they added a named plaintiff who did take part in Microsoft's "Express Upgrade" program, they could pursue that claim as well.

Microsoft said it was reviewing the ruling.
