Hello and See You Around

Tuesday, December 30, 2014
Hello.  It has been ages since I last posted here. I've been doing a lot of thinking and finally came to a very hard decision.  This will be my last post for Pia's Journal. As I read back my old posts, I realized that since I started blogging at 2004, everything was about challenges, disappointments and trials of different kinds. I've waited for a long time to change the theme of this blog, but it didn't happen. That's okay though.

2015 is a new year and I'm starting a new life. Some would say it's been long overdue, but I say it's better late than never. Besides, as the saying goes - Life begins at 40. 

As I venture into a new beginning, I have also decided to cease blogging. I'm not saying it will be forever. Who knows, I might just start a new one. In the mean time, I'm closing this chapter book of my life and am very excited to step into my new life.

Here's wishing you all a very HAPPY and BLESSED NEW YEAR!

I wasn't able to post this last Christmas, but I'm still posting it anyway. 

See you around!

Afternoon Chill

Sunday, September 7, 2014
I spent my entire afternoon yesterday just chilling with very good friends. We had fun talking, eating healthy, laughing and most specially praying and being grateful.

L-R: Bing, Amelyn, Zenda,Nen and me!

Michael Young, the German-Filipino Saxophonist, was also with us. Too bad he didn't have his sax with him to play for us. He promised to do so next time though.

With Michael and Brian

He did give us his signed CD. Thanks, Michael!

It was a pretty relaxing day yesterday. Hope to do this more often. See you guys again soon!

Life is Beautiful

Not always is actually, but we have to choose to see the brighter side in everything.

When one is busy, one can either see it as a deprivation or simply a disadvantage. Me? I look at it as a blessing. 

God is truly good! Did people ever tell you that God's plans for you are better than what you can imagine? Well... That's the bold truth!  I have prayed for a lot of things in the past and right now, God is showing me glimpses of His plans for my life. I tell you, I'm speechless and in awe! I'm walking through some of it now... The best is yet to come.

God's word for me for this year is OBEY. Even if He says something that doesn't make sense, just OBEY. The rewards of being obedient is limitless!

In the mean time, I'd like to share some photos with you that spells HAPPY

August 8. Fellowship with my spiritual family at Victory.

August 10. Mini family reunion at my Grandparent's house in Pampanga

August 17. Another mini family reunion at my Aunt's house in Pampanga

August 28. My family... We miss you Mom and Dad!

Me and Gabby

These are just SOME of the things I'm grateful for in life.  Life is beautiful indeed.

God's timing is truly impeccable! I don't know how else to illustrate how perfect His timing and His ways are. He is beyond words! He creates the perfect situation on how His perfect plan has to happen. The result? Absolutely flawless!

For years, He made me go through things I didn't understand why. I really felt like He totally forgot about me already. I was wrong! All these years He was equipping me emotionally, mentally and physically for that time which I never thought would still happen. When it did happen, I was prepared. Boy, was I prepared! You have no idea!

My God! Why are there times that I still doubt You? Why do I still doubt your Words? Forgive me for my unbelief! 

On a different note, last Saturday was Sun Life's August Championship Kick-off at the World Trade Center. I'm excited on how God will make things happen for me again! Thank you, Lord, in advance!

Lastly, today is my Mom's birthday.  

There are so many things to be happy about... These are just a few... God, thank you for everything!

Random Thoughts

Monday, July 7, 2014
Had my check up last Friday. Blood test results were not good. I was disappointed, of course, but I had to remind myself of what God and I talked about before I came out of the hospital two years ago.

I did not hit my target last month and I was disappointed again, but this season is a whole new ball game for me. I'm given another chance to try again.

When bad things happen, it's just like a sack of fertilizer being poured out on me. It may smell and look nasty now, but look at what it can do to a plant after a few months.  I'm being prepared for something great, that's for sure!

No matter how screwed up one's life is in the past, no matter how many times you screw up, God's faithfulness is constant. It never changes. It never depended on US, never did.

I know God listens to me when I pray because when I ask for parking in spite of a "full parking" signage up, a slot gets freed up just in time.  If He bothers to hear me pray for the simplest thing like a parking slot, I'm sure He hears my other requests which are far more important than that.

When I know I didn't do anything wrong, even if somebody accuses me of something I did't do, I can sleep peacefully at night like a baby.  

I can tell God anything, things I wouldn't even share with anyone. 

My time is coming soon. I will shine bright like a diamond!
