Yes, they have sang the same song. =)

There is no greater vision than that of the Great Commission being fulfilled. Today, Feb. 24 is BEYOND annointed. Today is the day that more souls will be saved. There goes my heart.

Route 196

Feb. 22, 2010.

Acel Van Ommen

(Natamad na kong magsulat. Basta masaya! May Mcdo before and after the event kasi.)

(P.S. This was the night I became a fan of Yeng Constantino.)

(P.P.S. I would be biased if I said I liked Tiny Cactus better than others. But hey, Ailene and Carlos rocked my night too!)

Tiny Cactus @ 6UG

One lazy Wednesday night. Feb. 17, 2010.

Cab heading to Megamall, and me dizzy with a headache. Awaiting further instructions. Doubtful as to whether to watch a gig 2 days before an exam is the best way to spend the night.

The main reason why we were there, stuck in the heart of Ortigas, was to watch a gig of Tiny Cactus. We were supposed to meet up other people that night, but then again some plans fail. So Sam and I ended up going there will full hesitation.

Well, certainly God has his way with surprises, and so far that night, it was full of it. A crying lady beside us while waiting at the grocery, sharing our hearts, meeting (relatively) interesting people, bands who were really great if they haven't blasted my eardrums, free iced tea, a free ride home and long conversations were what I got that night.

In the end, I realized, I got there for a reason.

After gushing our hearts before heading to sleep, we had late-night dinner at KFC. When I woke up this morning, I still have my stamp on and that made me smile. Para kasing panaginip lang, I can't remember the exact details but I know I won't forget last night. It was audio-hangover for me (I thought I was deaf after the event). At least I enjoyed the night haha. Good music, good people, laughter, and one saved soul. You know what I mean. =)

Post-Valentine's Day

Feb. 15, 2010.

It's a post-Valentine date yesterday and we got to watch, well, Valentine's Day.

The Lolo-Lola scene, Franklin, Edison, Julia Roberts, annoying Taylor Swift, and Bradley Cooper-McSteamy team up made it all special. We gasped and guffawed our heart out during the movie and it was definitely worth our money.

While waiting, my dates Queenie, Sam and Ali decided to do a short photoshoot inside a dressing room. My friends, ladies and gentlemen. I'm so proud of my girls.

And of course, there was the mandatory bathroom shot for all of us. Happy! =)

My ultimate crush, my very own inspiration for Scruffy, Robert Scwartzman.

Valentine's Day 2010

This is how I ended up my Valentine's day for this year: spending time with my family. I guess there was no other, or rather greater, way to spend it.

Bing Crosby said in his song, before you sleep, count your blessings instead of sheeps. I'm having too much of it, and all my praises still goes to God. He is the one who is still restoring our relationship as one family, touching our hearts, moving us to greater heights in this journey towards Him.

It was a day of love indeed. ♥

This Reminds Me of Queenie Joy!

To the strongest yet the most vulnerable person we know.

Heart On A Battlefield

In our moments when we feel unloving - when grace is not abound in our hearts - or when the thought of forgiveness is far from your mind, remember it was Jesus who first wanted us to love our enemies. Rather, He wanted us to 'pray for those who persecute' us. Certainly not easy, to some, not even possible. Images of Holocaust, tribal wars, drug dealers, 9/11, Maguindanao massacre comes to mind. One thing we're reminded of, something to keep in heart as well, that grace knows no limit. There is a blurred line between unfairness and grace, but it reveals that God is the one to execute judgment, as it was never ours.

Through the medium of prayer we go to our enemy, stand by his side, and plead for him to God. Jesus does not promise that when we bless our enemies and do good to them they will not despitefully use and persecute us. They certainly will. But not even that can hurt or overcome us, so long as we pray for them...We are doing vicariously for them what they cannot do for themselves.

Walking,stumbling on these shadowfeet
toward home,a land that i've never seen
I am changing: less and less asleep
made of different stuff than when i began
and i have sensed it all along
fast approaching is the day

when the world has fallen out from under me
I'll be found in you, still standing
when the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
when time and space are through
I'll be found in you

Theres distraction buzzing in my head
saying in the shadows it's easier to stay
but I've heard rumours of true reality
whispers of a well-lit way

You make all things new

When the world has fallen out from under me
I'll be found in you, still standing
Every fear and accusation under my feet
when time and space are through
I'll be found in you

The night was young and was my heart was tired.

It is my daily prayer to reach out to at least one person everyday, in any way possible. Time spent together, encouraging words exchanged, a simple note saying 'how r u? =)", they would all do. Why? Because I want to and I'm happy to do it.

Though last night was different. Everything seemed to be ok, that is, no major thing going on.

I didn't know that words could pierce through you. Even more, silence can be worse than empty words. These were my hurts, and vulnerability really takes a lot of courage.

In other words, I'm just grieving for my battered heart. Oh grace, how sweet is your sound.
