Blessed

i was supposed to do Duke's tag, but i think it can wait. hehehe.

last night, at the Singles prayer meeting, the Gospel was the Wedding at Cana. for those who are not familiar with the story, this is Jesus first miracle. He attended a wedding and the wine ran out. so, Mary asked Jesus to perform a miracle. and Jesus just turned the water into a wine.

last night, the activity at the prayer meeting was to write in a piece of paper the events in 2006 when the wine ran out, and on the other side to write the events when the water turned into wine. in other words, problems/trials and blessings.

natahimik ako bigla. sobrang i can't think of any when the wine ran out moments ko. all i can think of are blessings. i know i didn't celebrate my bday for 2006, but i still didn't consider it as a problem or what. there came a point when i don't want to serve in the LSS or SE, but still i didn't see a trial in my life. emo moments lang ako nun. hehehe. but for the blessings, a lot. for every problem that i'll try to think of, all i can think of is a blessing.

but the way to describe 2006 for me is a year of semi-fulfillment of my dreams.

first, 2006 had been a year full of travelling. around philippines nga lang. but it was really from northern luzon to mindanao. and mostly are job-related. coz that's what i really like with my work. the travels.

second, i asked God for something. well, it was a demanding request. but still i asked Him for it. and you know what??? He somehow gave it to me. well, still not really given to me. but He made me see that it is possible. that nothing is really impossible if it's according to His will. well, now i still don't know what His will really is.

third, being able to serve in Mark 10. i love kids. and i really want to be a pre-school teacher. but it's not for me. so God just gave me the Mark10 kids. Mark 10 is a ministry for the kids. the Youth ministry is for 13yo to 21yo. Mark 10 is for those whose age is below 12. saya!

fourth, i got to serve Him in many ways. especially by sharing and testifying about His love. and being able to serve in outreach programs. also, with this outreach programs, i got to serve again with the Youth ministry. it's 2007 already, but super blessed tlga ako with the YLSS Lipa.

fifth, my family. i saw how blessed i am with my family. and got to see most of them again at the end of the year.

ang dami pang blessings, but for now ito muna. i know 2007 will be a year of change for me. there will be lots of changes. i just don't know what. but i pray that it is for good and has something to do with what i'm praying for for the longest time. hehehe.

but a change that i know is specific. i'll be fast in taking a bath. 15 minutes maximum. new year's resolution. hahaha! sorry tlga guys last saturday. for the YLSS Lipa Team, thank you so much. you had been more than a blessing last weekend talaga. Jimly! :)

maraming blessings na dumarating sa iyo kc marami ka ring naiaalay sa iba :)

masarap talagang kasama ang mga bata, maraming natutunan sa kanila na sa atin "na matatanda" eh balewala na/di na pinahahalagahan ... ang kasimplehan ng buhay ;)

sana'y matupad ang mga adhikain mo ngayong taong ito ... kung manalo ka sa lotto. balato naman para makapagbakasyon uli si ako(sabay ganun) heheheh

rHo said...

sana patuloy ka pang i-bless ni Lord! you're such a good person kaya you deserve all of this!

ingat ka lagi!

iskoo said...

Our inner peace begins with counting our blessings, keep it up tin-tin!

bw said...

Tin - hmmm.. looks like something's definitely cookin' for you in 2007 :) Down to 15 minutes? I thought 30 mins is already a Guiness record for women :) My record is 5 mins, esp when I'm in danger of missing my train, kasama ng sipilyo :)

Sidney said...

You are a born optimist ! This is a nice attitude!

tin-tin said...

racky: ayoko kita bigyan ng balato, di ka naman bumibisita pag nandito ka.

rho: wow naman. thanks po :)

iskoo: true! thanks iskoo. honestly, di pa rin ako sanay pag seryoso ka. hehehe ;p

tin-tin said...

bw: dati, 5mins lang ako maligo. pero wala pang toothbrush yun. matagal na din ang 30mins ha. khet sa girls :)

sidney: of course! hehe. thanks :)

carey said...

...and a thousand more blessings to come for 2007! kasama na dun ang special someone for you... naks.
it's good to look back and realize that we are so blessed despite the odds. :)

chase said...

15 minutes? That is quite fast. At least I always have around 30 minutes unlike before I always bathe for like 2 hours

Richard said...

I don't think a bath should ever be quick. It is something that needs to be savoured and enjoyed.

I am glad you have so many blessings. We all have things to be thankful for in our lives, the problem is that too often we forget to look at them.

The is no problem is asking God forcefully, or repetitively. Remember the parable of the old woman who went to the lawyer's house to demand justice. She was persistant and annoying, eventually the lawyer gave in. There is no problem in being the same (just don't be arrogant).

Gypsy said...

May this year be another year of you witnessing Jesus turn water into wine. Happy New Year!

Tani said...

Alam mo, as a Catholic, when I say the rosary and reflect on the mystery of light, I am moved by the number of times I myself have ran out of wine. But then, God always provides for me. I am moved by His generosity, and eventhough I don't deserve it at times, God finds a way to say not to fret and that I DO deserve His blessings however which way I have forgotten Him. Maganda yun activity nyo. I will try to do that daily or as often as I can.

vina said...

hi tin! have a happy weekend!

Iba kasi ang feeling pag nag seserve ka di ba? Kahit pagod parang magaan pa rin ang pakiramdam.

I wish you more blessings this year.

Nice to hear a recap of your blessings. I try to think of good things as well, ok.. most of the time. I like wallowing in depression every now and then. hehehe

I think I have an inkling of what you're wishing for, I might be wrong pero I got the idea from your last post. :P

Hope IT does come true for you this year. :)

"Lord, I have a problem!"
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedy snake, but I'm just not happy."
"Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.
"Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples." "Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you."
"What's a 'man,' Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly, he'll basically give you a hard time. He'll be bigger, faster, and more muscular than you. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about and hunting fleet-footed ruminants, But, he'll be pretty good in the sack."
"I can put up with that," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
"Yeah well, he's better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. But, there is one condition."
"What's that, Lord?"
"You'll have to let him believe that I made him first."
:D :D :D
