thankful friday

Its Friday! Other than being the start of the weekend, I am listing out my blessings.

To further practice my positive mindset.  

 

Thus, thankful Friday.

thankful friday

 

1.) I am thankful for my newly straightened thoracic spine, From the annual physical examination result I got this week, My thoracic dextroscoliosis (from the past year’s result) is gone. Less back pain for me. I will just have to maintain the spine. Also, thank you to my very patient coaches, who patiently taught me how to deadlift properly!  And for my friendly gym friends, they really made me feel at ease.

2.) I will be baptized this Sunday! Excited to be officially part of my church. Also excited to wear the white ‘baptismal dress’ Kei gave me.

3.) Excited to meet my bestfriend tomorrow!

4.) For encouragement from my Care Group sisters and my Sponsors. Plus one of my devotions for this week. 1Peter 1:16 (In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.) Really apt, for the time being.

5.) For the my new assignment.

 

God is Good all the time.

self help reading

I am on a strict no spending season right now. But, I am happy.

This past weekend Kei and I went to the MIBF (Manila International Book Fair at MOA-SMX) to buy some books and meet up our church friends. (Who married and moved to a different city. So they moved to a different church and we seldom see them.)  Actually, they are mentoring us on how to save up for our future. To sum it all up. I didn’t get a lot of books, No shopping, no  gourmet food but Kei and I are now a bit more prepared for the future. We can adjust, after all its for our own good.

We both got two books each from the book fair. But, I have four books as of the moment. The first two (from left) are the ones I got from the MIBF,  the third one was lent to me by my office mate, and the last is a devotional given to me as an early Christmas present from one of my care group sisters.

I am currently reading, The prayer of Revenge by Doug Schmidt. I got it from OMF literature for 110php -20% MIBF discount= 88php  Its a really good book on a very tough topic. I am sharing this with my mum, even though she is not a christian, she thinks its a good read. (hopefully in God’s time my mum will be a christian)

Haven’t read the others yet, although I read a few pages from Think Positive Thoughts Everyday.

 

My baptismal is also just a few weeks away! I am really excited!

My mornings are also something I look forward to. My best friend sends me a bible verse to start my day. And I am happy to report that I have been doing my quiet time without fail for the past week! I really want to keep this up.

A blessed week to everyone!

the movie marathon weekend

This weekend was exceptional.

1.) I sort of  “sorted out things” with my best friend.

2.) Drank wine with the family to kick start the weekend. (My 18 year old sister brought a bottle of wine and proceeded to pour everyone a cup. Our family doesn’t really drink, but weirdly enough my parents were okay with this, and drank with us. )

3.) Movie marathon. (Usually I watch one movie per weekend. This time I watched 3: Despicable Me 2, Pacific Rim and Confessions-from the Eiga-Sai festival.)

4.) I get to go to the first study session of my Baptismal Class.

5.) I got a 50% off dress from Dorothy Perkins. It was a blue/white chinoiserie print dress I saw from a window display a month ago! In my size! (I don’t really get to buy dresses on this brand as most of the dresses are a bit big, have huge armholes, too low necklines or the length is too short. )

6.) The Heat is on! The church SSP-Zion Caregroup  friends finally clamped down a dinner reservation at Shangri-La Ortigas buffet restaurant Heat.

 

I just hope this work week will be smooth sailing, as we are having a rough time at work lately…

*I really think everyone should go watch Pacific Rim. I find it awesome.
