I'm Back!

And what a tiring week it has been!

As you know, I am back working at Summit Media. The week was spent chatting with people I used to work with, adjusting to a (not-so) new work environment, remembering how to draft a memo to treasury and other things I used to be able to do with my eyes closed and getting to know the new PR team. 

The week was made extra-special because as I faced the new challenges in my life, I began to realize just how much I need God and how much I desire for His purpose for moving me back to Summit to be fulfilled. All week long, as I read His Word, it's been promise after promise, reassurance after reassurance. I'm just really blown away at how awesome God is.

I love Apple

I will be praying for Steve Jobs tonight. He and the brilliant people from Apple have really made it easy for naturally disorganized people like me to get organized. I echo Gary Lamb when I say I am totally hooked on everything Apple and I cannot wait until I get myself a new iPod Nano or some other gadget from Apple.

Just started using Apple's mail application and iCal to get organized and I am totally digging how easy everything is.

I hate goodbyes

Just two more days to go before I am officially not part of the staff of Victory. I hate goodbyes and that's why I'm dreading the next two days.

The last year and a half have been memorable. I have learned so much from working with people who not only talk the talk but walk the walk. Nobody is perfect, of course, and I'm not going to say the people I work with are but they are real people who genuinely love God and love people. It doesn't get any better than that.

I am so grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to get to work for the ministry. To be able to witness what God is doing in the lives of people and in a small way, get to be part of that.

Thank You, God. You are awesome.

The week in review

Things that have happened this past week:

1. Moving out, Moving in
I moved into a condo in Greenhills last Monday. The place is owned by the mother of one of my friends from church. I am renting half of one of the rooms, which means I have a roommate -- one of my good friends, Eunice. Not a lot of adjustment since I got a taste of living away from home and with people from church before. The only adjustment is sharing the room with someone else since I used to occupy a room on my own before. Everything's great though. It's fun having someone to talk to after work.

2. Not a great way to prepare for a fast
I started cutting down on food four days prior to the start of our annual prayer and fasting. That meant not having the usual snacks and dinner. Everything was going well until the day we had our meeting to brainstorm about how to improve the way we do our worship services. We held the day-long meeting at Discovery Suites in Ortigas, which serves a pretty good buffet lunch. Dimsum, sashimi, sushi, lamb, fried rice, pasta, crepe, halo-halo and many more! Gosh, what a way to prep for the fast. I didn't take any rice or pasta but the sashimi and sushi were too good to pass up. Plus a teeny weeny bite of lamb.

3. Juice and Soup Galore!
We started our 7-day prayer and fasting last Wednesday. I committed to doing a liquid fast which means I take onlu juices and soups for seven days. I'm on my third day and so far, so good. Except I wasn't feeling so good last night. Eunice and I were getting ready to get on the MRT last night when I started to sweat A LOT! I started to feel really dizzy, which they say is normal to feel on the second day of the fast. I feel much better now though. It helps that the prayer meetings are awesome! Fresh fire!

4. The End of a Season
Just two more working days before my season of working for the Fort officially ends. I'm starting to feel sad because I know I'm going to miss the people I work with. I know I'm going to miss working for the church. I know I'm going to miss being part of the team. :( But I know God has called me elsewhere, at least at this time.

Secrets with God

God and I have a secret.

My goodness, this is literally the first time I'm doing this. Having something inside that I so want to tell my friends about but can't. This is just something that will be between me and Him.

It's nice to have something only you and God know. :)
