Panginoon Kay Buti Mo

i want to remember this. at 5:56pm, 28 June. along the binalonan highway in nueva ecija, when i felt so forlorn and just blogged about sadness.

and yet there, in front of me, a van has this sign - PANGINOON, KAY BUTI MO.

and indeed He is very good to me. i have no cause for complaints.

but i can still get sad.

yet i should not settle there. that one is clear.

and so yes, i can get sad. wallow in it for a while. but there is still God's good and quiet grace to hold on and get inspiration from, in the dark days, hours of insecurity. and so work will get done. the thesis will be submitted. and i will write. as i am writing now..

Panginoon Kay Buti Mo for living in my present. and in that perfect time, give assurance of the future.
