Praise Report

God is good.
I am so blessed, so amazed by what He has been doing in my life. In spite of some stormy seas, God has been my rock of refuge.

Last week, my grandfather passed away. It was a tragic moment for all of us...since it was so sudden, so unexepcted. One thing that made it harder is that we don't know where he is now. It was a "test of faith" for our family, and by God's grace we were able to find the peace and the strength to move on.
It was a painful moment, but a blessing in a way, especially since Dad's sisters were able to come from other countries (all execpt one), so it was a big reunion after 18 long years.

Another thing I would like to praise God for is the guitar lessons that made my summer one of the best ever. In a previous post, I wrote about how difficult guitar was for me, and how enjoyable. Well, the lessons have come to an end. We had our recital last May 27 - Guitarahan Para Sa Panginoon (Guitars for the Lord). Of course, nothing is perfect, but we enjoyed playing for God and using our talents for His glory.

Next month, I will be entering a whole new world. Next month, college begins for me. I'm excited, I'm nervous, I'm not sure what to expect, but I know God will be with me every step of the way.

Thank you for all your prayers, your love and support.

Soaring on eagles' wings,
