Between sipping tea and shelling pistachios for breakfast I watched my cute daughter draw. It is a good day, a very good day, a very God day.

I just had a very full and tiring week at work and I see the next coming 18 months that way. I am afraid not of the loads of work but of the time I could be further missing my kiddos. We hardly began the focused works on the overhaul of systems and processes brought by the transition to our new company when I was identified as the potential weakest link in our team because I had pushed through with the holiday vacations with my family. They scheduled meetings on later part of 2012 and first week of 2013 but I declined. I appreciated I was chosen to be part of the team but it doesn’t mean I am giving up my most valuable team, my family.

I have assessed how I did in all the teams I was involved and holy mama I was strong! And I know that the very person who made the forecast was not able to realize his projects on time. Armed with that fact, I offered that they may take me out of the team because I was never ever a yes person. I believe in firm NO — NO to pulling down.

That is the reason why I only had tea and pistachios for breakfast this weekend — otherwise, I’ll have a heap of everything in the table, lol! But it felt good to slowly sip the tea and play with pistachio shells. It is very good to watch my daughter draw while she smiles to me from time to time. It is very good to smile for what God has for me.


beatrice. i love jesus


It is a very God day! He reminded me once more that I am loved and I am on His team — linked strongly!

Yes, I am still on the working team.

Yes, I am the missing link — missing you!


The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.

    Hey Bendedspoon!

    Even if we were to lose our job, lose our home, lose our wealth, lose everything, our family would always have God. And that is more than enough! This is a beautiful reminder, thank your daughter for me!

      I see a beautiful world when youths like you love God sooo much. You will make a good family man and I am excited for little Joshuas singing praises to God — you composed the songs of course! Thank you for the blessing that you are Joshua πŸ™‚

        Thank you for your encouragements Bendedspoon, always makes me smile. :]

        The idea of little Joshuas running around caused me to burst in laughter, lol! Not exactly something I picture as beautiful X]

        I still have a long way to go, may God teach me first to become a family man for the family I have now!
