Musings, Baguio, Superblessed, Alice Peacock and ABCs
Sometimes I wonder if I'm calling myself a Catholic for granted. I seem to find myself working hard to keep my faith. But then I remember that nothing in life is easy. And it is true. We have to work hard to get what we want. Being Catholic and believing in God takes a lot of patience but I am willing to do anything for Him. He is my God and I love Him so much! I'm really glad that I came back to Him.
I came back from Baguio yesterday afternoon. Baguio was so fun! And so cold! Bought choco flakes and ube jam again! Yum yum! And I bought this amazing skirt from ukay-ukay for only P80! Amazing! Oh and I saw three college friends there. What's funny about it was that we never saw each other in Manila. We always texted each other but can never seem to meet up. We saw each other sa Camp John Hay while shopping. It was so good to see them. Hope we can meet up again soon.
There are times when I know people are here, lurking or making their presence known. There are times when I wonder if people even come here. And then there are times when you know you are appreciated. This is one of those times.
Ganns has released the nominations for the Superblessed.net Christian Blog Awards 2003. And Jax Place, yes, this place, has been nominated for 2 awards. This is really very special to me since I look up to Ganns as a brother in Christ. He inspires me to be the person that I can be. And when the going gets tough, I look at him and I realize that giving up hope is never the option. That there are so many great things to celebrate in this world. That is why this nomination is doubly special to me.
Hike on over to Superblessed and check out the other nominees. To tell you the truth, there are only 3 blogs there that I know of and go to.
*Rick, who has amazing photos every time he posts something.
*Sue, who has amazing insights the stuff she encounters everyday.
*Darren, who is establishing an emerging in Melbourne, Australia.
Anyway, go check them out and vote for the People's Choice Awards at Superblessed!
Last summer, I asked people for names of singers they liked since I was looking for new people and music to listen to. One of the names that came up was Alice Peacock. I started downloading her songs and I loved her instantly.
When I saw her CD being sold at Tower Records in Megamall, I quickly grabbed it and paid for it and have been listening to it non-stop. Well I found out today that she might be coming here in November! I'm so excited!
