10. New, little things. This could be a little materialistic, but I just can’t help but be thankful of all the things I’ve gotten the past year. Little souvenirs from friends’ travels, notebooks, clothes, shoes, phones, and all those cute things bought by me, my parents, or my friends. Especially those given by friends and loved ones. I just realized that no matter how small or big something is, if you have a heart, you will appreciate it because it makes you feel loved that somebody remembered you even while they’re traveling and they care for you enough that they gave you something.
Thank You Lord for providing for us that we can buy the things we need and want. :)
9. Being able to travel. I’ve only went to and from Davao the past year, but I’ve been there more than twice last year. And I love that everytime I go there, not only it’s been fun but has a purpose as well. I always learn something new and go to places I’ve never been to before, yes, even if I go there every year.
The first time I flew alone 6 years ago had a rush of excitement from independence and fear of traveling by myself. I was sixteen then. 6 years later, I have gotten used to airports and riding in airplanes. But still, thank You Lord for always protecting and keeping me/us safe everytime. :)
If God is for us, who can be against us?
Today as my brother was about to have lunch, our elder brother came and sat as well to have lunch but told us about what happened. Our new vehicle’s(a Toyota Innova) back window got busted. My brother was about to leave the parking and backing up when a truck backed up as well and hit the window, also leaving a small dent. Before that, my brother just got a text message from a client confirming another event this December, and he was happy as we’re mostly fully booked this month because of parties and events and he said, “Tuluy-tuloy lang, Lord(Let this go on and on, Lord)”. And then boom, that happened.
That car has just been with us for only a month. And it’s such a blessing! We never even thought that we could get a new car this year both here in Manila and Davao. God provides. :)
That happened in Davao as well with my brother’s new truck. It was during All Soul’s Day when they visited the cemetery and the truck got stuck in a canal since it was dark and there were no light posts lit on the road. His rear lights got busted and the back part had scratches as well. The truck’s been with them for only less than a month.
We were talking about it during lunch and I was deep in thought when my brother asked me what’s wrong. And I just realized something. God may be pouring out overflowing blessings and miracles, but the enemy has been also working double time. It’s like in a tug of war. But God’s protection is over us and we can say that the enemy has no power over our lives, in Jesus’ Name!
And also those things can be replaced, at least it’s nothing like a life taken or something like that. God is with us and He will never let His children fall especially if we are fighting the good fight of faith. No matter what comes our way, we should just stay focused and that is to focus on Jesus.
As it is, we are more than conquerors in Christ. The battle has already been won. :)
“Cha ang ganda mo today!”
“Ganda naman ni Cha”
“Naks naman, Cha, ganda mo ngayon ah!”
“Ang ganda ni Cha ngayon noh?”
“Aba, ganda mo ngayon ah! Dapat ganyan lagi ang ayos!”
Received that a lot of times yesterday. Glory to God! Hehehe!
Follow-up answers nila:
- “Oo nga ahemmm”
- “Iba talaga pag… inspired.”
“Inspired talaga? Hindi ba pwedeng.. in love?”
And all I did was smile or laugh hahaha! Naging ganon ang ayos ko kahapon dahil sa kakaantay sa kapatid kong ang tagal gumising. Kaya napa-ayos ako ng sarili habang ginigising siya. Was getting impatient and BV na umagang-umaga, pero wala namang mangyayari kung ipapagpatuloy ko yun kaya ganun na lang, take pictures and smile. Haha!
Salamat Lord for yesterday and today and everyday! :)
Words cannot express how happy I am and how much I appreciated everyone’s time last night.
My friends waited for a loooooong time for that, so that meant a lot to me and to them.
7 years. It took me 7 years to finally trust and take a chance again with no fear and doubt. I don’t even know why. Lol. And now I’m scared haha! Chos! So dramatic, haha!
Thank You, Lord!! :D
Though I’m happy, I still feel sad ‘cos my friend and I still haven’t talked a lot lately… It’s my fault, because I forgot to SMS her that night. Ayun, nagtampo. Kahit okay na, sabi niya.. Pero ehh. I wonder how I can make it up to her. :| Kung pwede lang hatiin sarili talaga oh, heh.
I didn’t know what to say because my heart was racing the whole time. I guess I never know what to say to that. I would have said no usually, but…
