It has been 5 days since we rushed my uncle to the ICU. I am assigned as the night shift watcher while my dad and auntie are the day shifters. Before the stroke, my uncle was even doing his laundry while taking his bet for the lottery. No symptoms of any sickness. It was one of those ordinary days.
During his first night, he stayed in the ER and we have witnessed 2 deaths already – a suicide in the morning and a heart attack in the evening. Then, a while ago, while a family was feeding their patient, she just stopped breathing. And now dead.
What do these say? Life is short. We’ll never know when or how we will die. I guess we just have to prepare ourselves. How? By living an amazing life. With no regrets. So when God calls us to go back to Him, we’re ready to leave the world to be with Him.
So much for a first entry of the year. Haha
Happy feast day to the saint who always made me sing everyday! I love you St. Joseph!
After more than a month of praying my earlier post, two good opportunities came to me this month. I am already inclined to say yes to the first opportunity when the second one came. I am considering both. Discerning which one is God’s will for me.
I believe that change is good now and then. It creates a new perspective of things around you. It allows you to celebrate new beginnings and reflect on the chapter you just have ended.
I already experienced a big change in my life early this year and now, again, God is asking me to jump off with Him so we can fly together. The (good) problem for me now is: TO WHERE, MY LORD?
The trip this morning got my brain cells working extra and made my hormones excited for the opportunity. Honestly, it is very enticing. I wanted to say YES the moment I was asked THE question. And yet, I know in my heart that I shouldn’t decide based on my emotions alone. It is a process that I have to go through, purifying my intentions and desires, aligning it to the will of the Lord.
I do not know why the Lord is giving me these two good opportunities NOW, but I know that whatever my choice will be, it is still good for He will bless my decision. May His will be done.

The Lord takes our prayers seriously. Make sure you’re ready for His answer. :-)
