Thankful Thursday

Oh dear...I am gonna do Thankful Thursday this week!

I just can't keep my mouth shut! hehehe!

I have loads of blessings and I'm gonna state one for today. There are so many blessings in my life. I can't just stop telling the world of HIS great LOVE!!!

Elisha and I will have a 12-hour trip to Naga for the National Schools Press Conference on February 14. What a beautiful day to spend in a bus! hehehe! Well, my honey isn't here anyway. Every day is heart's day for us. Every day is special. That is our motto. Anyway, we'll be spending 7 days and nights there. Fun. Our problem is the lodging. We are supposed to lodge in a school. We are supposed to sleep in those rooms in a public school there. I am not being picky but of course, it will be difficult and the comfort room will be no comfort. hehehe! So last week, I hurried onto my hotel hunt online. I found a hotel which is new (just opened last 2007) and very cheap. The other hotels were just so expensive but really nice. I just really wanted comfort and clean living. I have too many OCD's. hehehe! I don't want any roaches creeping on my face, right Cody? hehehe! That night, I tried to compute how much we'll be spending for the hotel accommodations. Of course, I was thinking maybe Elisha and I could split up for the expenses since I need to pay for my internet still due on Saturday but I simply whispered to GOD that I know HE will do something amazing for HIS financial provision. Anyway, I talk too much. I must get to the point. hahaha! Yesterday, I told my mom about the hotel. This morning, she told me the estimated expenses for the NSPC that they are willing to provide. Amazingly, she included the hotel accommodations. I was so relieved!!! Whatta GOOD LORD we have! Now, I am going to enjoy going there even if we have to travel for 12 hours. I'm used to that, anyway. hehehe! I can even travel 14 hours back and forth in a day so no sweat. hahaha! THANK GOD HE IS FAITHFUL!!!

Second, I'd like to thank GOD for the trials. Because of the trials, HE is able to show HIS power. HIS amazing grace. HIS unconditional love.

Third, I'd like to thank GOD for my Cody, my family, my friends, my relatives and every stranger out there. You are all a blessing to me!

Most of all, I'd like to thank GOD for HIMSELF!

Make an impact. Make a difference. Make a ripple. Tip the scale.




When you feel GOD's love, OVERFLOW!
