I was writing checks for my household bills earlier, when I accidentally wrote the date January 1, 2007. My sister suddenly said, “Hello Kuya, it’s now 2008!” Oh yah hah, what was I thinking? My minds stuck somewhere in 2007, I guess. Now, I have to be extra careful and watch myself when I write those dates.
Honestly, it doesn’t feel like 2008 yet (at least for me). 2007 has been a wonderful year! I have so many fond memories, like meeting new friends thru blogging (you know who you guys are, and I thank you for your friendship!), a new direction in my career and the time when I met Ted. Who could forget meeting the man in their life, right? It was a year of love and countless blessings, that’s for sure.
And now, as I say hello to 2008. I tried to look at what’s missing in my life. I’m positive that I almost have it all, at least the ones that are truly important. Truthfully, I had the toughest time pin-pointing what’s deficient or nonexistent. But luckily, right before the year finally ended. It dawned on me that thing that’s currently inadequate— I have very diminutive knowledge of our God and not a lot of piety left in me. I was counting the adversities as they pass instead of my blessings.
And now that I know, maybe it’s time that I light the flame of my faith again and seek comfort in God’s loving arms…
