was having a quiet coffee and breakfast with my sister... coffee half way to my lips when i felt the tremor -- i saw the glass of water shook and stared at it for a few seconds when it finally hit me that truly it was an earthquake! nobody is immune to fear - i was a bit scared honestly because when my brain grasp the idea that the tremor was actually an actual earthquake - my mind conjured only one image - Japan-... and i was like gosh! is this also going to be as bad as japan? thankfully it was not. later learned that it is a 6.8 earthquake and that almost every island near dumaguete (which was the epicenter of the quake) and some parts of mindanao has felt its "shake"... and that there was this alert for a tsunami for west coast of cebu and east coast of negros (i'm very embarrassed to admit i don't know if we are in the east of west coast of cebu!!!) and that there's panic in the colon area.

i think, sometimes, not having a television is a blessing in itself...

my mother from negros called me and announced that our living room suffered the most - it cracked! but other than that all my family and friends are safe. praise God for his protection.

her call though was not all that bad. she also mentioned that my uncle (her brother) and my aunt (her cousin) are now faithfully coming to church. 

certainly God's ways cannot never be measured and his wisdom is absolutely infinite!


almost forgot to post this picture.... this was taken in Chika-an, SM, Cebu City last January 2012. bff carina , leslie, and I had a really good time swapping stories and reminiscing funny moments from the past... thinking that what did not kill us really made us stronger :-D... wishing for more of this times. miss u Ca ..
sister dear, ruby and i had a blast watching Saving Private Ryan and Tears of the Sun this morning --- abusing the streaming sites for free movies is waayyy good! and dearest dear sister was feeling generous and  charitable she did my nails and painted it bloody red! yay!
yesterday's message was truly a strike through the heart. Habakkuk kept on hoping and clinging on to God despite the seemingly hopeless situation... even if it was looking as if God himself has left them. he learned to "Rejoice in his Faith".... trusting nothing but God's promises.

Habbakuk 3:17-18
        17Though the fig tree does not blossom and there is no fruit on the vines, though the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food, though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls,
    18Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the victorious God of my salvation!

note for self: remember, it is easier ALWAYS to walk by sight than by FAITH. so do not be deceived.
loving the gloomy weather and the cool breeze. just wishing and praying that this rainy moments won't cost some people's lives or properties. 

bless this week Dear Father :-D
