A happy birthday to you girl! You’re finally aging. Haha!

Well, what should I say? Naalala mo pa ba what happened 5 years ago on your birthday? The day you decided to let go of the things na hindi nakakatulong sa paglago mo.. Look at you right now.. πŸ™‚ Andami mo nang nalaman at natutunan.. At higit sa lahat, YOU REALLY CHANGED. Naks. Yes yes, you changed. Hindi na ikaw yung walang nakikita sa future mo. Hindi na ikaw yung hopeless, dramatic, pessimistic, etc. I’m so happy to see you right now. Sobrang laki talaga ng pinagbago mo. The way you act, you dress, you eat? Haha, the way you look. πŸ™‚

Right now, my prayer for you is that you will continue to chase after His heart. Yun kasi talaga yung nakapagpabago sayo.. When you think about the things that pleases Him. At hindi ko hihilingin na hindi ka magbago, kundi patuloy ka pang magbago.. Continue to change from glory to glory to glory! I know na marami ka pang ilalabas. Masakit mabalatan, pero mas lalo kang gaganda. πŸ˜€ And always go back to your purpose. Don’t forget the “WHY” question. Why you serve, why you do cellgroups, why you love to be with your family, always go back to that. Okay ba yun Jonne?

Looking forward for this another year of your life. πŸ™‚ I’m so excited to see you turning 26 years old, 29 years old, 40 years old, etc.. and when you finally see that generation who loves God.

Kaya walang sukuan ah?

Happy birthday. πŸ™‚

Love LOVE.

It Was August 7.

Finally, another year to be thankful and grateful for. Today is my spiritual birthday, and I still remember how I ran to our house because I want to pray and say sorry to Him. How can I forget the most wonderful day of my life when all I know is to remember? Haha.

It was a sunny day sa campus namin, when our Professor share the greatest love story, how Jesus died on the cross to save me, how He suffer while thinking about me and that moment was first time na naramdaman ko kung ano yung totoong joy. πŸ™‚

I’m turning 24 now, and still the greatest day of my life is that 8 years ago with that girl longing for the perfect love.. That girl who cried in her room while praying because that perfect love finally found her.

Naks. Maka-english. πŸ˜€

Ezekiel 24:27
“At that time your mouth will be opened; you will speak with him and will no longer be silent. So you will be a sign to them, and they will know that I am the LORD.”

Backup!

Magtatatlong taon na kong web developer. At nakita ko na sa pagiging web developer, merong bagay na hindi ka dapat nawawalan. That thing called BACKUP. And in my Christian life, I noticed na yung Word ng Lord ang backup ko. Yung bagay na hindi ko kakayaning mawala. πŸ˜€

Guarding Your Heart

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Proverbs 4:23

These past few days, God has been teaching me kung ano pa yung mas malalim na ibig sabihin ng guarding your heart.. At sa mga sitwasyon na meron ako right now, dun pinakita sakin ng Lord na ang pag-ga-guard sa heart is not just about emotions. Hindi tulad ng inaakala ng marami. Malapit ko nang matapos yung iLove na book, and ang pinakaunang inintroduce sakin ng Lord through that book is that a woman after His heart knows how to guard her heart. And yung pag-ga-guard na yun is hindi lang sa nararamdaman mo.. Kundi sa lahat.

While reading that book, nakita ko na hindi pala ko ganung kaingat sa puso ko.. Kasi kahit na pinipigilan ko yung sarili kong maginvest ng emotion sa isang tao, I allow things in my heart na hindi pleasing sa Lord. Nakita ko na may mga bagay na palang mas importante sakin kesa sa Lord, yung mga bagay na gusto kong gawin, yung pag-complete ko ng twelve, yung mga gamit ko sa office (haha!).. Minsan akala ko para pa sa Lord yung mga ginagawa ko pero hindi na pala.. Kasi pag naiisip ko na ibigay sa Lord yung success, yung mga bagay na meron ako, hindi ko kaya.. Dun ko nakita na ang guarding your heart pala is yung hindi mo ia-allow na may mga bagay na mas mahalaga kesa sa Lord. Yung tipong pag nagkaron ka ng kotse at hiningi ng Lord kaya mong ibigay. Yung tipong pag nagka144 ka pag inalis sayo kaya mo.. Yung tipong pagnagka-boyfriend ka at sinabi ng Lord na maghiwalay kayo, kaya mo pa rin.. Kasi hindi mo kakayaning hindi sundin ang Lord. Kasi mas mahalaga Siya e. πŸ™‚ Whew.

Just like what Hannah did. Kaya niyang ibalik sa Lord yung binigay ng Lord. Oha. And tonight, I do believe that God changed my heart. Kaya ngayon, kaya ko nang sabihin na “Bigyan Mo man ako ng mga magagandang bagay sa mundo, Ikaw pa rin ang pinakamagandang meron ako.” (with conviction.)

A Letter For Me. Haha!

My Dearest Luigi Jonne,

How are you? It was year 2007 nung makilala mo ako. Ako yung isa sa mga naging favorite mo noon dati and I still remember your smile ‘pag nakukuha mo ang sagot sa tanong ko. Minsan nga napapapalakpak ka pa at sabay sabing “Galing!”

Dahil sa sobrang pagkagusto mo sakin naisip mo pa noon na gagawa ka ng isang bagay using me.
At natuwa ako, kasi may pangarap ka sating dalawa.

It was on 2008 nung nakalimutan mo na ako, yung tipong parang di ako nagexist sa isip at mga pangarap mo. Nasaktan ako kasi sa simula ka lang pala interesado. Hindi mo na ko inalala pa.

Lumipas na ang mga taon, at 2012 yun nung naencounter mo ulit ako, pero para kang nagka-amnesia, kahit isa sa mga tanong ko hindi mo na masagot. At pag tinitingnan mo ko, hindi mo na talaga ko natatandaan. Ang masakit pa dun, madalas mo kong sukuan.

Ngayon, masaya ko na naalala mo na ang lahat. Naalala mo na ang mga statements ko, ang mga conditions ko, ang gamit ko at marami pang iba. Nakita ko na ulit ang smile mo sa pagsolve sa mga tanong ko. Ngayon, ituloy natin ang naudlot nating pakikitungo sa isa’t-isa. Masaya ko kasi ngayon, alam ko na nag-grow ka talaga, at hinding-hindi mo na ko basta-basta susukuan. πŸ™‚ Let’s have this journey until ma-master mo ako.

Nagmamahal,
