5 more days and it’s the 25th. Just 4 more mornings and I’m going to be able to complete my first Simbang Gabi. And even though this is going to be the first Christmas I’m not with my family (after spending 4 consecutive Christmases), I am surprisingly excited for the coming week ; all because I understand what I’m truly celebrating : JESUS.
Leviticus and then I jumped to the book of Matthew.
Hillsong Worship playlist on Spotify. Currently playing Here with you.
my Christmas devotional. For the past four days, I’ve been sending gospel messages and my personal reflections to two of my closest friends. I plan to continue this habit next year and hopefully include my other friends as well. Si Lord na bahala.
the Christmas dinner, games, and my work schedule for this holiday. I have to carefully plan the latter.
for household salvation!!!
that the Embassy will come to their final decision with my visa.
the (generally) peaceful & loving atmosphere in the family. I definitely owe it to the Lord. I know He is moving in our midst and He is finishing the work He has started. I am overwhelmed by the fact that we get to honor and worship the Lord together as a family. God handles things perfectly!
a good foot massage and sleep.
money to save up for my plane ticket. Must work double-time!
Looking forward to
my relatives’ reactions when they open my present. I’m 100% sure my gifts are the most unexpected presents they’re ever going to get hehe
tired from all the walking and the Christmas shopping but happy nonetheless.
I may not get the kind of sleep I want but this little sacrifice is nothing compared to the joy of knowing Jesus and seeing my loved ones doing the same thing. Good night for now. See you in a week. Have a merry Christmas. 🙂 ❤
