I don't know how to start this post, but I would like to thank Kristen of Unfading Beauty Ministries for nominating me! I am truly happy to answer the following questions as a response to this blog award. Hope you like this!
Turning a year older today! Well, unlike my blog entry of when I turned 20, this will be a little different. Maybe because the past year has slightly shaped me up a bit. It might be that some of my perspectives on certain things have changed. As I've mentioned a few blog posts ago, 2015-2016 have been the years where I felt the most distant from God. It's when a lot of "revelations" big or small gave me too much of doubt and confusion that my trust in God uhmmm, lessened. And I won't tell you that I got through those dilemmas the easy way. There was never an easy way. I've had to force myself to get up every morning; to trust that He is still good and to continue to rely on Him every step of the way. I was broken— both emotionally and spiritually that I didn't even know where to start picking up the pieces.
We received the news this morning. My grandfather has passed away...
Just got home from church... and I looked into the bags that we brought along with us. A kind lady gave me an off-shoulder top that sadly didn't fit her (hurrah~note sarcasm). Another amazing lady who just got back from her vacation in the Philippines also gave us some "pasalubong" or goodies. She handed us lots of sweets and a bag full of Nephelium lappaceum aka the rambutan. If you didn't know, rambutan is a tropical fruit that might look a bit scary on the outside because of its hairy, "wormy" and rough texture but in reality tastes like heaven! (Have you tasted heaven, yet?)
Hello, hello, hello!! I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend yet. It's holiday season here in the UAE because of an Islamic celebration called Eid Al Adha. Those working in the private sector get to enjoy a 3-4 day break (which is only like 1 or 2 additional days off to their usual 2 days off *smirks*) while those working in the public sector enjoy an amazing 9 day break. Daebak! After going to church yesterday, we'd originally planned to attend a birthday party we were invited to which we did, and visit our relatives once again in the land far away — Al Ruwais. Although that would've been a good idea from the start, we just had to cancel because 1, my mom had to check on her patient at 8:30 next morning (Saturday) which would be impossible knowing that travelling to and from Al Ruwais would take 4 hours in itself. 2, the weather just wasn't so cooperative yesterday. It was so foggy and humid in the city, how much more in the desert? I was kind of frustrated because I wanted my mom to have more time with us, and in all honesty, I only asked for this one Saturday. And it never happened, LOL. So I woke up today, loaded the washing machine and off I go. My Saturday will be filled with house cleaning, ironing, cooking and more house chores. Then I realized that maybe, I could spend some more time with God instead of spending more time for myself, right?
