Perze and I prayed together for our praise team and for the Praise Conference this weekend. We’ll continue to be praying for our team as a whole. May unity be on our lips as we drive there. May Jesus be our focus as we attend workshops. May praise be our song during the concerts. Be blessed guys. We don’t know if our lives will be changed, but my prayer is that our worship, not just on Sundays, but our worship in our every day lives will change. in Jesus name I claim this. I pray that we will indeed be a generation that lives for Him, esp. in the small moments, in the secret moments, in the moments when it’s hard to live for Him and choose Him over ourselves.
It’s getting harder and harder to remember what it was like being younger. The memories are starting to be selective. This was always one of my fears when I was younger. I remember consciously writing pages in my diary, feelings that would make me remember how it was really like so my older self would never forget some of the pain as well as the joy. Sometimes, age brings you to a place that’s grown calloused to strong emotions, esp. those feelings of excitement and risk. As members of the older society, you’ve had enough with youth’s uncertainties that you cling to the comfort of stability, as not to feel anxiety and fear anymore. You’d rather live in what is known, and after living so many years in that condition, those once strong emotions that you once had tend to simmer to a mere contentedness. Then those memories you once had start becoming mere pictures and images rather than real emotion provoking moments, moments when you can remember what it actually felt like at that elapsed moment. Working with people who are younger makes it imperative to remember how those moments felt like, and not just remember it in a […]
Our beloved Zienne turned 2 on Monday, but we started the celebration on Sunday by taking all the kids out to their first bowling experience. I found a place that was kid friendly, that offered more than just bowling, but we only chose bowling because we didn’t have the whole day to go through all the attractions. It was a smart call because their bowling game lasted from 6:30-9pm. On Zi’s actual birthday, some of her favorite people came over for a big dinner. We ordered food and had some of her kuyas and ates come over. Lola, Tita Kwitie, the Ngs, Tita Michelle & Tito Danny, and Tita Grace were also there to celebrate.

I finally watched The Social Network with hubkins last night. As they were listing the schools to add to their list of membership, I was waiting for them to say, "and their mamas." Complete fail. I was also hoping to see Justin Timberlake put "bringing sexy back, because sexy went somewhere and I had to bring it back" as his first status. Still, fail again. I can usually predict what will happen in the movie. This one thoroughly stumped me. All in all, it was a good movie, one that I hesitated to watch due to my very buried understated feelings of jealousy that they were able to think of the simple idea, or better yet, simplify many ideas, and implement it, and then grow it until it’s self sufficient. OK, movie aside, what MZ did, from how he was portrayed in the movie, was conniving and relationships, dispassionate. I understand the movie isn’t completely accurate in portraying the drama surrounding the lawsuits, but based on the movie alone, I honestly feel he feigned ignorance when he could have shown more responsibility in his personal actions. Sneaky little Zuckerburg. I’m sure one day, he’ll come out with a blue autobiography entitled, […]
Your youngest is gently sleeping on my arm. I read your messages and still miss you. We’ve been married for almost seven years and I still long to be near you. I still think of you fondly and think of new ways to show you that I love you. Even now, no special day nor for any special reason, I’m thinking of you. I love you.
