Productive day

Got four items on my to-do list, and I'm looking forward to accomplishing all of them before the day is through! Come on now!

Yesterday, I fixed a leaking faucet, paid two bills, met up with an accountability partner, and set rat traps. Caught three mice. Yesz!

Rainy days

Tropical storm Falcon - yeah, that's its name - has dumped a lot of rain on Manila, turning our city into a virtual swimming pool. I've been home the entire time, but one of my tweets about Araneta Avenue being chest-deep for former Philippine president Gloria Arroyo was picked up by a feed on GMA News. Surreal.

Find rest o my soul

Today, I really cried out to God. I was demoralized, discouraged, and depressed. I have yet another sore throat - starting to wonder if there's really something wrong with me, I get this on a regular basis - and God just spoke to me in my devotion, reminding me about how I can rest in Him.

"Find rest, o my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him." Ps 62:5

I was so encouraged.

My laptop crashed!

... and I am inconsolable.

Long day ahead

But it's going to be good. I love Sundays. They give me an opportunity to really rely on God. And those opportunities are the best kind, because you know He won't fail you. You may not get what you always want, but you know you'll get what's best for you.

Happy birthday, Nicola!

It's my four-year-old's birthday today. I love you, Nicola! You're such a blessing to Mommy and Daddy!

No longer a single parent

My wife is back after two days in Subic (Anvaya) as part of her team-building efforts with her staff. I've had difficulty sleeping the past two days, mainly because my kids were sleeping with me. Now that she's home, I'll bet I'll sleep like a baby.

Birdie bank

I recently purchased three small Angry Birds coin banks. The red one I gave to Nathan, the black one went to Caths, and I kept the speedy yellow one, whose slot is unfortunately smaller than the others. The Php10 and Php5 coins are difficult to insert. But isn't that what saving is about? Sometimes, saving money is difficult, and sometimes, it hurts. But when the time comes, you'll literally feel better when you "break the bank." Praise God for coin blessings!

Remix City

After five remixes, I gotta admit I'm dry. I still have about five more songs to remix, but I'm running out of creativity. Hopefully, it'll get better by tomorrow.
