Happy Monday, Pilipinas!
The dust is starting to settle from last week’s national elections, and things are looking promising for my country. After the losing presidential bets graciously conceded, their followers were mostly quick to be as accepting of the results. I really believe we are maturing as an electorate and as a people.
My hope now is that we can all pray for the well-being, the heart and the will of our president-elect, for a smooth transition between this administration and the next, and for governance that will truly make a positive difference in the lives of Filipinos. On top of that, though, it is my earnest prayer that the Filipino from every walk of life takes it upon himself to be an agent of change, to live out everyday discipline and personal accountability, and to go beyond his comfort zone to bring about transformation in himself and in his community.
It’s a happy Monday here at home, too!
My Mom and Dada are home from the US and we had a full week with the hubby’s younger sisters and niece, so we’ve been having lots of quality family time. The only catch is that the hubby and I have been eating a lot and have gone back to chomping 3 rice meals a day (Welcome back, Bulgies!); can’t help it with Mom’s cooking that we missed sooo much!
On another, more serious note, God has been so gracious in dealing with the hubby and me and in assuring us of His love, faithfulness and sovereignty especially in regard to our most personal challenges. Just in the last 12 hours we had another awesome episode with Him! In relation to this, we decided late last night that we’d check out the Life to the Max ministry at church this coming Sunday; I have a good feeling that God will show us something special there.
And so I sing:
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
– Psalm 73:26
