Happy New Year!

2007 was a very challenging year for us...

2008 will be equally challenging...fight for justice for mama's death; Lola Febe's gastric cancer at 87 years old; Rhyss' obstructive sleep apnea caused by his tonsils (size is as big as that of a 10 year-old)...

I don't know, but I feel so numb...but thank God for His grace. It is more than enough.

I miss them so much - Mama, Papa, Lolo Kito...seeing Lola in pain made it more painful...seeing Lolo Rico helpless makes it equally harder.

But God is the God of seasons. He will see us through...and everything written in the Bible, every promise spoken will come to pass. I feel in my heart that God will do wonders, greater things and I thank God I am not going through these things alone. I thank God He is holding me in the palm of his hand.

The Lord loves my family more than I do. He knows what He is doing.

So what am I going to do now? ...yes, I will be faithful, I will obey, I will go forth and tell of God's goodness and grace.

Indeed my God is faithful. I see prosperity in 2008...I see His grace being poured out in our lives...I feel His peace....I feel joy...I feel God move in every way. Yes, God is good, all the time...and all the time, God is good.
