Before I leave the department I was given a chance to take a picture of some friends. We had short time to be together and proceeded to the area where first year students were preparing for the activity. All the students except first year were not allowed to go inside the campus. It’s an initiation for first year students only. So we’re able to do some errands enjoyed the activity with the students. It’s fun, while waiting we’re joining together as teachers and joined the camaderie.
Once again here comes December, another month to celebrate His coming to earth as a baby. And stayed in the world to die on our stead. Thank you Father for sending Jesus. Now, we celebrate the season of giving and receiving.It’s another year to give Him praise and to thank Him for everything He has done to mankind.
Since Christmas is a time of celebrations I was considering to give something to my dearly beloved. I was looking at Scott Kay brand at Reeds.com and I saw a lot of choices. There is one that hubby loves and I want to get one for him. I desired to be a blessing and give him something special that he could never forget. I’m excited since it is memorable and a lifetime gift.
It’s Christmas time once again. Yesterday, my sister celebrated her birthday and usually at the start of this season we look forward to many celebrations. Our mother will celebrate her birthday this Sunday, another birthday for my friend in school, wedding anniversaries will be celebrated, our Pastor and his wife on the 21st, the next day, 22nd will be our senior Pastor and his wife too then mine and hubby on the 23rd. On the 29th hubby and our church mate will celebrate their natal day and our church leader will celebrate their wedding anniversary as well. You see, celebrations are everywhere. It’s a time to celebrate and be thankful to the Lord for all the blessings and to remember of His coming to earth and save mankind.
Musicians are everywhere but they vary in style and seasons. When I was in Thailand I trained singers and we’re joining in the church music together with hubby and our eldest son. We loved to be involved in the music ministry and each one had a role to play. Our son is playing guitar, I was singing and hubby was leading the congregation. It’s a blessed opportunity for us to be involved and we missed those days. Somehow, we could say, we had a part in that church. One of the leaders would like to buy vop at musicians friend and we waited for the time until they were able to have it. It’s the best experience.
Last Sunday we celebrated our 31st Anniversary and Thanksgiving in the church. Many came and enjoyed the celebration. Friends were invited and joined. Churches and outreaches came and participated. We stayed until 6:00 in the evening. The choir rendered a special song, another outreach in the nearby city gave a special song as well. I’m glad to train all of them. It’s an enjoyable feeling.
In the afternoon, we had invited groups of musicians and they played musical instruments. Others performed and gave special numbers. Almost all the members of the youth came and participated. It was a great celebration of the goodness of the Lord.
Our church is improving as far as music is concerned. We learned to value and appreciate the beauty of music. We’re excited to learn and sing more for the Lord. It’s the best experience.
Similarly, the youth enjoyed to sing. Wherever they go and whatever they do, they showed the love of music. The leaders would like to look for the best center. Will there be ibanez artwood at guitar center? That’s one thing I would like to check.
My new work is quite interesting this second semester. Although I’m from a different department but I’m glad seeing my active and intelligent students. Somehow, it encouraged me to do better and share more about the life, works and writings of Dr. Jose Rizal, the national hero of our country. He had been to different places around the globe and my students would be traveling around the globe after graduation since they’re preparing to work in a ship someday.
I’m excited to teach and share more about the hero. Hope you join me of my new journey. Blessings to everyone.
