19 May 2006
A Heartbreaking Saturday
It’s almost ten. I was happy to be home. I went up to my room to change. My sister came in. With a hesitant heart and teary eyes she told the sad news: My cat, Musang, died. In a split second, tears welled in my eyes and ran unstoppable. How could that be?

Musang has been with me for almost three years. I only get to see her during weekends when I go home. She’s been the apple of my eye, my living toy. She’s an effective stress reliever—watching her play around or sleep peacefully. Huh. Now, I won’t be seeing my Musang anymore. It hurts pretty bad.

She looks very much like the cat in the painting.

God is awesome!

I got this article from Enoch. Can’t help but shed tears and be moved by the glory of His presence. Praise God for His lovingkindness. Please take time to read.

The Miracle of Indonesia

Praise Him! Glory to God above!

All hands on deck

This is my boss' favorite line. It means one thing: we have a closed calendar --as always (!!!). We are trying to commit suicide here (yeah, it came from her, too.).

Just came from another staff meeting and so many projects are ongoing and in the pipeline. Nobody is allowed to get sick. Yeah, my favorite line.

The best news so far is, we are up for the Bangkok trip (finally). There were two choices, one was Hong Kong and the other, Bangkok. As you may recall, I went to Hong Kong in February so I was really hoping the group chooses Thailand. And they did. Haha!

It may be anytime between the last week of May or by early June. Going back to real business, I have a lot to do.

Lord, thank you for another privilege of having a trip abroad. I pray that You give me the strength and wisdom I need at work. Praises to You. Amen.

Mothers' Day

To our dear, beloved mothers,

Happy Mothers’ Day. You are a gift to every family and a blessing to your loved ones. God is so loving and made us feel that love through you. We love you!

To all mothers out there, we celebrate with you today. May the Lord grant the desires of your heart and bless you with the life that comes from the Father.

And though my Nanay is no longer around, I will still celebrate this day, in memory of her.

P.S. Dear children, love your parents.

May 10

Today is the 10th of May. It's summer back here and the sun is HOTT! Just imagine temperature ranging from 34-44 degrees Celsius! Suprisingly, it rained after lunch and still is until now. I remember my father used to tell us that whenever thunder is heard on the 10th of May, there is flood within the year. We had experienced that many times before. I don't really know what's the significance of the date but anyhow, I can't wait but observe; will there be thunder today?

Prayer request

Tomorrow, I will have to take an exam. It's been a while since I felt the pressure of taking a test. Please pray that everything goes well and that I pass the test. Thank you.

Dear Lord, I am nobody, and I can do nothing without You. I pray for wisdom and that Your hand be with me tomorrow as I take the exam. I trust You. Please make me calm. I claim your victory today. Thank you, Lord. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
