Our eating escapade did not end there. For lunch, Mr. Scribbles asked us all out to try Jimel’s Restaurant, a place which I suggested because I have heard many raves for it from my co-workers. We were awed by how both cozy and elegant the place was. It was a cross between a fine dining look and a casual eatery. They manage to blend both worlds beautifully.

He diligently wakes up at 3 am each morning, goes to mass at 4:30 and goes to work at 7:30 am. If he is as diligent as that, then what is my excuse?
As the weeks starts today, I am here, back up on my feet and armed with some insights I have gathered in my mind over the weekend.
* Life is beautiful.
Stones will be thrown at me along the way, there will hustles and set backs, but these times are wonderful chances to grow and become better.
*Trials are God’s way to remind me that
I am well-loved and that I can still talk to him whether its about something big or small.
* God does not want us to suffer.
If there are events that are sometimes hard to understand, If we have lots of questions why things are or are not happening to us, it is not because God wants us to suffer.Everything might not be clear at the moment but they are all under one great plan that’s is made especially for us.
Now, despite all these, I cant still say for certain that I am totally composed and graceful.
Do I still have fears? yes
Do I still worry? I still do.
Do I get anxiuous about the future?Yes.
I am human after all. but knowing that there is a God that I can talk to and that I can trust him everyday is enough.
Every day, when I see my daughter run to my arms in the morning and my husband who kisses me while eyes are still shut in bed, I know that there is God who blessed me with these wonderful gifts.
And that’s such a reassuring fact.
