Happy Holydays

Hi, y'all! I'm much better! I was at a wedding last night, which took place in scenic Tagaytay, a beautiful vacation spot about two hours away from Manila. The night was cool, the decor was gorgeous, the food was yummy, and there was love all around.

Christmas is 100% about Jesus, definitely, but God is love, and I saw God all around last night. Thank You for beauty, Lord, in all its forms!

Witnessing His blessings

I'll make this short and sweet: the Greenhills church for which I work recently finished its Overflow series on extreme generosity and audacious faith. Challenged and encouraged, I decided to bless someone with my iPod Classic to a worshiper who loves to worship but has never had an mp3 player in his life.

Two weeks later, I received an iPod Touch. Not long after that, my Nokia 1400 - so entry-level, its highest feature is a flashlight - was replaced by a spanking brand-new Blackberry Curve 9300.

I almost want to give away my car. (Hello, Volkswagen New Beetle?) I'm also tempted to give away our Las Pinas townhouse so that we might receive a Makati condo or something, but you know, God also recommends self-control, so I'll let it be.

Getting through Christmas

I've not been feeling well lately. I've been waking up with backaches and feeling feverish. The weather hasn't been helping, and frankly, I know that stress is a partial cause. I don't know what to do (other than prayer, of course), because I can see that we need to work hard to raise volunteers up, and I've been struggling with it. Oh well.
