overwhelmed

hi readers :) as i was in a hiatus mode for months, i'm not so sure anymore if i can clearly put in words all the things that happened in my life...most of these are transitions. 2008 i must say enveloped a lot of recent significant changes. i wasn't able to blog all these because things happened one after the other that left me quite occupied with coping up with changes. i have however, documented them in pictures, you may visit my multiply site to view them. now, as 2009 is getting nearer i feel that i have to put everything in writing especially that i'm still overwhelmed by how God has truly blessed me this year. If after few months or years from now and i'll decide to go back to this entry ...i want to remember the exact overwhelming experience again :)

during the start of the year, God gave me a gift, this time...romantic.haha!we're on our 8th month as of this writing. a major leap on my part i must say. as you are all probably aware, raul is my first boyfriend. since i am nearing my 30's already (next week!), i never thought that i would still be even given the chance to love someone romantically and vice versa. at first, i felt that everything just came too late for me in "love area" (i have previous blog entries on this) but i've realized that of course this is the long been talked about "God's perfect timing"...whew! haha finally happened...so everyone was shocked as i was but they're all very happy for me as well. highschool friends, college friends, former officemates from way back and relatives... all suddenly communicated with me in different ways...friendster message, e-mail, text message, multiply comments...thanks for wishing the both of us well and i hope that you'll continue to pray for our relationship.

december of last year marked my 3rd year at RS Components...my longest stay in a company so far.it has been my comfort zone for the past years and sadly, i've started to be the person that i used to hate, started to do things for the sake of doing things, it was working and losing my passion at the same time...but everything was perfect, i've mastered how to manage time, how to deal and work with everyone. i was okay...was okay but God has other plans for me...He slowly unveiled all these and mid of this year, i was hired by another employer. after 3 years and 7 months, i bid goodbye to RS Components. if this was a better career move, i have yet to see. as far as i know...i will face new career challenges again and i know this career is another gift from God so my hands are just all up praising Him.

before i got my new job, JM on the other hand, has been blessed with a new job abroad. i think this gave me enough confidence that God has always been taking care of us, our family.prior to this, we were both so worried of finances because we are now sending third to college and 3-ann to high school. of course, i was saddened that he'll be physically away (at least, when he was at IBM, we got to spend weekends together) but also glad that God is also unveiling His plans for him one by one :)

sometimes, i feel guilty...i feel that i dont deserve all these...but God assured me TWICE (during She's All That -SFC Women's Forum and ABLAZE-SFC Metro Manila Conference) that I DESERVED ALL THESE GIFTS because I AM GOD'S DAUGHTER and I AM LOVED BY HIM.

SOOO LOVED, I AM OVERWHELMED :)
