Productive week

It's been a good week. Collateral produced, materials percolating, creative juices flowing. Looking forward to an even more productive weekend. But today... AGH! It's 2AM!!

Planning to plan

Today, I was assigned a few tasks that are right up my alley. The challenge? I don't have any of the information that I need to produce the collateral I need to produce. Oi vey, I need to plan just to ensure they plan.

Back running

This morning, I ran for the first time in months. Well, not quite run. A 32-minute brisk walk. I would've gone an hour, but I was so surprised that by 5:45am, it was bright out! What happened to the days when 6:15 was around and it was still dark out? I was too embarrassed by my fatness to keep at it, so I stopped at 32mins. 9"24 clip, not bad.

It's never the same

Tomorrow's service is going to be challenging. We've got sound effects, mannequins, and, heck, even a tomb for next week that we're building as early as now. It's going to be fun.

Next week, for Holy Week, we're going to Anvaya for a couple of days. I'm leaving my laptop on purpose. Gah, I hope I'll survive.

Thank You, Jesus

Last Saturday, we had a Leaders' Convergence for the church in Greenhills that I work for. We started the convergence with a one-hour prayer meeting that included about 30 to 45 minutes of praise and worship. Our team for that month met for the first time at 8:00am - we were scheduled to go onstage at 9:30am - and we soundchecked like headless chickens.

But this is grace! We relied more on God than ever before, and the Holy Spirit was thick in that place. We saw healing, we saw restoration, prophecies were delivered, and pledges to our building fund topped Php5,000,000. Praise the Lord.

Down but not out

I was given a dressing down yesterday that I deserved. Felt really bad about it, but I'm glad I managed to pretty much take it in stride and not take it personally. One thing I realize, though, is the church will continue to run, with or without me. So we do our best and try to multiply ourselves to ensure it really does run efficiently without us, because if ever God - or someone else - takes us away, well...

Enjoying the new look

It's been a little more than a week since I redid my look. I'm so happy; people are telling me it looks great. Far be it from me to indulge my personal vanity, but thank You, God, You're motivating me in all sorts of ways!

I dare you to move!

I am watching Switchfoot Live in Manila! Someone blessed me with tickets, and I can't wait. I also have a copy of Hello Hurricane, which I am dying to rip open! (I'll do it tonight, so I can focus, lol.)

So I lay my head back down and I lift my hands and pray
To be only Yours I pray
To be only Yours
I know now You're my only hope
Whee! Switchfoot!
