I think I’m going to miss the first day of Job Expo at school tomorrow. I’m still kind of sick — and now I’m slightly heaving from the asthma. My nose is still clogged and I’m feeling kind of weak. Darn colds. Oh well. Let’s see tonight if I’m well enough to go tomorrow.
Last night was the second to last SFC-CLP (for those who don’t know, it means Singles for Christ Christian Life Program. It’s the entry point to SFC) and in my opinion, it was a pretty good wrap up. :) And instead of a discussion group, we had an open forum, and one thing struck me last night: to be able to move on to SFC, one must really embrace the SFC culture. I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant to be chummy with all of them because I feel like I’m too serious and all that. If not too serious, too young. But then again, I knew that God placed me there for a reason and that it’s His will for me to be there at the particular SFC chapter. Anyway, last night I felt once again that I will be able to move on and fit in with these people. I can’t wait to have a household (FYI: household is the term we use in the community for cell groups. Mighty fun :p).
Earlier today, on our way home from the mass, I got to see someone I haven’t seen for the longest time: Ate Tinapie! :) She’s one of my triplet. See, during my YFC-High School Based days, there were three of us in the sector: me, Ate Tinapie and Ate Tynna. Three Tina/Tynna’s. :) That’s why I became Tinamats because to avoid confusion. Anyway, I haven’t seen her for the longest time, and she got married last January — and now she’s pregnant! I can’t believe how time flies. :D She’s going back to Timor Leste next week though, because that’s her mission area with Kuya Anthony, her husband. But it was so good to see her again! :)
Anyway, seeing her reminded me of all those fun High School Based moments. :D
I finished reading Savannah from Savannah and Savannah by the Sea by Denise Hildreth and I’ll get to the reviews in the next few days. I read too fast. But then again, I have nothing to do anyway. I still have one unread book — Blink by Ted Dekker. Next time, Ted. I’ll read you next time.
I need to go finish my ginger tea and pray now, but I shall leave you with a quote from Savannah by the Sea:
“That’s what the right person does. But they don’t create it. Only the Creator can create…You’ve got to deal with your heart. Because until you can be trusted with your own heart, you can’t be trusted with someone else’s.”
– Savannah Philips, to her best friend Paige Long, p.300
