CHANGE

Change. Inevitable, you surmise. But some are just so unexpected. They catch you by surprise. The reason eludes you, Leaves you scratching your head. At night, it keeps you awake, Away from the comfort of your bed. Memories surface Of shared good times and bad. You wonder what happened. You can’t help but feel sad.Continue reading “CHANGE”

Happy Anniversary to us!

One year since lockdown. One year since our movements became limited. One year since our whole world changed. What have I learned? A few things, actually. We can endure. I saw pictures I posted on social media exactly a year ago, saying that I would miss our couples group for a month because (I don’tContinue reading “Happy Anniversary to us!”

Remembering God’s Providence

We had our couples victory group meeting last week, online of course, and King asked us, as a warm-up for our discussion, about our favorite memory before the pandemic. Funny that I didn’t know he would ask that question and that he would give his answer. But he was absolutely right. Our favorite memory beforeContinue reading “Remembering God’s Providence”

What are you grateful for?

It’s been more than a hundred days of quarantine! How have you been? King asked us the other night what we were thankful for, being home now for more than 3 months. Common answers from the kids were bonding and food. I guess they know their priorities. 😂 Thought I’d share my answers too. First,Continue reading “What are you grateful for?”

(not so) Happy Easter

Thirteen years ago. April 8. Easter Sunday. But instead of celebrating the resurrection of Jesus, we were mourning the death of my dad. He passed away on Easter Sunday of the year 2007. His death surprised us. His death saddened us. His death hurt us. But there was grace and there was hope. And itContinue reading “(not so) Happy Easter”

Weeding in the Time of Corona

My husband likes to pull out the weeds in our lawn, and a few days ago, I decided for the first time 😬, to help him. I am sure I had a chance to do this growing up. I had forgotten how fun and satisfying it is, especially when you’re able to pull them out fromContinue reading “Weeding in the Time of Corona”

What Can We Do?

We are on enhanced community quarantine right now. I have not tried leaving the house since I last bought groceries from small stores, last Saturday. So far, we’ve been okay. Kids are somehow productive. I’ve been hearing the ukulele and piano more these days. We have been playing volleyball and badminton in the backyard. TheContinue reading “What Can We Do?”

Public Speaking Workshop

Last month, our group of pastors’ wives had a basic public speaking workshop led by our church mate, Tisha Timbang, who is a member of the Toastmasters Club! To be perfectly honest, I am terrified of speaking in public. I get too nervous even when it’s just a classroom setting, and I’m the student andContinue reading “Public Speaking Workshop”

Lessons from Frozen

Lessons from Frozen 2? No, actually :D. Let′s start with the first one first. I′ve been watching it lately, and Gianna has been listening to its soundtrack all year, like practically each time she rides our car. I loved the story from the very first time I saw it because of true love between sisters.Continue reading “Lessons from Frozen”
