Pastor Joby Soriano (of CCF-Alabang) preached about forgiveness this morning, and I was reminded of the 70 x 7 seminar for women I attended with my niece Dyan last May. Even if I have attended that seminar, I still struggled to forgive those who had wronged me. And now it seems that God has found a way to remind me again of the importance of forgiveness, that it was nearly all I thought about after the service.
reading randomly my books on Kindle. I didn’t realize that I have already amassed a sizable collection of ebooks by downloading free copies recommended by different book clubs online. Now I’m trying to decide which ones to keep on my device(s).
writing lists of articles to write, i.e., for this blog, advocacies, and work. And now I feel guilty for failing to produce an article I promised to write last week for a missionary friend. I really should write things down, especially those I commit to doing for another person!
listening to my girls’ conversation as they play chess. One of them is about to win 😉
thinking I should revamp this site again; branding, when it comes to my own blog, has just started to make sense to me. And, while I’m at it, I might as well create a category or page for products as well as non-profit organizations I support.
smelling my youngest daughter’s newly washed hair. I wonder if she rinsed it thoroughly.
wishing I never slacked in any of our classes. I’m starting to feel the pressure of being both the teacher and the mom, and I hope we’ll be able to catch up with all the lessons in time for the girls’ first quarter exams. I can’t tell if my 4th grader’s academic adviser would be considerate enough…
hoping finish preparing quizzes and recording initial grades this week, not to mention writing commitments.
wearing one of Mama’s hand-me-down blouses, the green-blue one.
loving the attention some of my posts are getting in social media. More followers for me means having more people to influence positively, that is to Scriptures and volunteering for worthwhile causes.
wanting to have more time to do the things I want to do. Lately, I feel like I’m always running out of time. Or, did the days just got shorter? Lol.
needing as always to be more organized and consistent in planning (and delivering) our lessons. My daughters’ education and future are at stake.
feeling contented. Financially, we don’t really have much, and it goes without saying that my husband is still miles away from us. But still, I feel at peace, knowing that God is in control.
praying that my decision to forgive those who have wronged me would stay in place. I no longer want to be enslaved by anger or any negative emotions when I see my enemies. After all, I don’t need to be reconciled to them and God will still deliver avenge us – that I’m sure of.
