Happy Birthday Sheila!

The photo doesn't really do justice in showcasing how nice, kind, sweet, and thoughtful this lady is.
And oh, she is a breath of fresh air too! :)

To a very dear friend friend, sister in Christ, business partner, and a sweetheart, happy happy birthday today, She-she!

9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment,10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. -Philippians 1:9-11

It's been really awsome to have had the privilege of journeying with you! And yep, I miss our time together.

Our first together, two years ago.

Throwback two years ago:
Because we have the same birthday month!

Our first together January this year. 
I thank God for using you to be my source of encouragement and help.  And just like everyone else, it is really a blessing to have you in my life, in many ways that I think I have told you naman na din. Hehe.  May you continue to grow in the Lord, by His grace, for His glory.

Welcome to the line of three. Hehe. I love you She! Thanks again for being such a sweetheart! ☺

Ps... John prayed for you kanina before our dinner. Dinamay nya sa prayer nya for our food. Hehe.

Birthday Wish List

I'll be turning 31 on the 25th of this month. Wala naman siguro masama na magsulat ng wish list ko ano? Hehe. Libre naman ang mangarap right?

In no particular order:

  • More time to rest and more time to be busy at home - no explanation needed. Haha!
  • A trip to Baguio on my own - to have a personal silent retreat. And yes, Baguio talaga! Gusto ko ma-enjoy ang OMF Baguio Home or PBTS siguro, if possible. 
  • A large teddy bear - I wanted a dog sana kaso di pa namin kaya ni John mag-alaga money and time wise, so I thought having a teddy bear that I can sleep with and hug at night will do. Haha! Natatawa ako sa explanation ko. 
  • Foot massage - my feet are just tired like me. 
  • New mobile phone - because what I have now is giving up on me again. Twice na ako nagpalit ng battery, few months old pa lang ang charger ko and yet bumibigay na naman ang baterya. Hindi na ako mag-sa-Samsung after this. 
  • A weekend picnic date in UP Diliman Sunken Garden with one or two people dear to me. 
  • Slow juicer - baka sakali na ma-engganyo akong seryosohin ang healthy diet. LOL!
  • Vacuum cleaner - para mas simot ang dumi sa bahay.
  • A date with my discipler-ninang-teacher Carol - which will happen this month! Wohoo! Sana walang aberya on the date she've set for us to meet. Hehe. It's been a year since we last saw each other, August 2014. 
So there... If God would allow it lang naman, those'll be great as birthday gifts for me! Pero kung hindi naman, kahit yung rest na lang po Lord please? Hihi. May tawad pa di ba? :-p

Anyway, itutulog ko na nga ito. Gabi na. Ktnxbai. :)

On Leave

I have just "filed" for a leave for one month from my Connect Ministry involvement.  I'm taking a break so I can physically rest and at the same time, Lord-willing, further assess/discern where I'm at in my walk.

I have been in touch with a number of counselors in our church and REST is one of their major recommendation for me. Which is an affirmation! Yehey!

I'm still praying that my application for a Leave of Absence (LOA) from work be approved.  I'm also looking at taking a break from work for 30 to 45 days so I can rest and be busy at home with John.

While "on leave" I'll probably be updating this blog more often.  I want to record my journey on this trying phase that I'm going through right now.

Sigh. I'm really super hoping and praying to be really okay soon.
