Every time we are able to go to church on a Sunday as family, I feel blessed. We have been on and off with regards to going to church. Blame it to second collections. We just cannot understand very well where the church’s funds go. Ok. Maybe we do. Let’s just say that asking money the wrong way and for the wrong purpose irks us. Won’t you feel the same?
Anyway, so we attended church last Sunday. And as I say my prayer after communion, I found myself teary-eyed. I just feel so blessed and I am eternally thankful for that.
This first quarter of the year has been a pretty challenging when it comes to our expenditure. There is so much to pay and every time we just paid something, another will come and another. Thankfully, a blessing came and I believe, that is what we have been using.
I want to freak out. I want to be stressed. Without my hubby’s work, I will sure not be able to provide for my children’s needs. I told my hubby how thankful I am for he is the best provider (next to God, of course). He is not complaining but I know he thinks about our finances a lot, specially that we really want to stop renting a house. I want to help in the money matters but I am so doubtful of myself if I can work part-time here at home. What job will I take? Can I do it while the girls are here? Will I be able to juggle work and being a hands-on mom? Surely, I do not want to hand the kids to our helper most of the time. Does that mean I have to work at night till morning? And if they wake up, I cannot go to sleep, right?
Lord, help me discern. Show me your way and help me obey your plans. Amen.
God always gives answers to our prayers. That’s what I always keep in mind when I have so many problems.

we also go to church every Sunday when we are here in Bulacan. Elijah is calling it a castle. hehe. Even if we don’t go to church when we are in Baguio, I make sure to say thank you for all the blessings that we received. I even thank God for all the problems we encounter because it makes us so much stronger.

You know sis, when I am facing difficulties, especially financial, I always have this on mind “God knows when He would help me. I should not be afraid for I trust in Him.” And it’s like a miracle, for every time that I cannot bear it anymore, blessings would come like rain 😀

I feel that way too… “blessed” is the right word. I’m sad that these past Sundays I haven’t gone to church but I peacefully pray at home.
i just want to share this quote ^_^
Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion if we can simply learn that as well as giving, it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart.

Stress kills. It is the major cause of my ruptured brain aneurysm I was such a worrier, and I am very thankful to God for giving me a second life, a second chance to live in this world. Please swing by my happiness too!
