Housekeeping 2013

I have not been able to post articles as often as I would like (which explains why I’ve been sharing my old pieces). I’ve had a lot of work on my plate, which includes all of the challenges and opportunities we all face in different degrees, as well as two very fun (and tiring) stints as a barrista at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. When I have kids, who are undoubtedly going to be amazing, I’m going to make sure they spend a good amount of time ushering at church and doing barrista work. I want them to appreciate the importance of work, of service, of being humble. I don’t want them to become entitled divas that keep taking from everyone around them but still feel entitled. There’s way too many divas and too few servants.

I’ll finally be posting that article I committed about parenting this week.

My articles take time. It’s not like I just sit down and crap one out. Usually, other than my poetry and short thougthts, articles are written over a span of days, weeks, and even months, and a few, have spent more than a year as a draft. I have so many unfinished articles, stories, poems, and songs, many of which I no longer intend to finish given the change of views and circumstances.

Thank You! = Moleskine
I would like to convey my sincerest thanks to you for being so kind as to read, share, tweet, make instagram photos, comment, and even send gifts! I cannot realistically thank all of you individually but I try to thank, retweet, and respond to as many of your messages as possible.

To make it even more fun for you, I’m bringing back my Moleskine a month gift. Every month, I’ll look through the comments on my blog and choose my favorite one. The person who gave that comment wins a Moleskine notebook from me.

Why Moleskine? Because it is my favorite notebook despite its being overpriced in the Philippines. I’ve been using them for years now and it’s nice to see these matching black notebooks stack up.

Needless to say (but I’m saying it anyway), I’m only going to choose from those who comment with a name and email so that I can contact the person who won. Anonymous comments, though appreciated, won’t be included.

Thank you again for following my blog. I hope my articles inspire you to glorify God, to find pleasure in Him, and to live the life He has given you to the fullest.

  1. Yehey!!!! This is great! Reading for pleasure(and getting insightful wisdom while doing so!!) plus a moleskine?! This is a burst of happiness, I just have to add a few more exclamation marks to prove my point!!!!!

    Thank you, kind sir! Though I am just the typical reader of sorts(for I am quite reserved in commenting), I shall muster up courage and start commenting on your articles! 🙂 I did once write a comment to one of your articles before. I remember that it led you to thinking, then eventually into writing a new article. haha!

    Anyways, since I also write, I know how it feels to have so many drafts on my folder(and on my mental notes). It takes me a lot of energy to write articles, especially since I really research and am very thorough in writing my articles. Sometimes, I’d grow tired of an article, so I’d rest first before I resume writing. But after I’ve rested, I’ve come up with other things I wanted to write about! It’s crazy! I’d get sidestepped, and suddenly nobody knows when I’ll get enough focus and inspiration to write it again. Ahhh, #writerproblems.

    But even if it is what it is, I enjoy it. I’m busy, but I love writing. I love conveying to people the random thoughts and ponderings on my mind. I especially love writing about periods of wisdom that I get from God and other people(I usually finish them in one seating) because I love sharing how God freed me from my restricted vision. I enjoy sharing it because I desire that people may also experience the freedom that I have.

    Anyways, I’ve rambled on! he he he. Will anticipate your next article, sir! 🙂 Good day!

  2. So I guess I’ll be leaving my comments here more than Facebook (following instructions, oh diba obedient? HAHA).

    I’ve been using Moleskine eversince the local store put it on sale from 700plus to 190pesos I think? I gave them out for Christmas gifts 2010, and hoarded some for myself since I use them for church.

    One Sunday when I saw a fellow leader using paper and he mentioned that he has yet to find a good notebook, I thought of the unopened Moleskine in my bag. Well I was prompted at the end of the service, to give him mine. He was so touched I took away all thoughts of “Did I do the right thing? Akin sana yun.” HAHA!

    Anyway, I thought to myself that I have Evernote on my phone, but nothing really beats pen and paper (being born in that generation). This year, I told myself I should be writing more. Upon going back to the local store, those Moleskine got sold out.

    So is this considered an “entry?” HAHA! Well if it is, Ressa Angela J. Regalado ressaregalado@gmail.com

  3. First time I stumbled upon your blog, I couldn’t help but keep coming back. Sometimes I ask myself, “Why don’t I have the same thoughts like yours?” which make me realize that God had given us different kind of understanding of the events of like and still, He has the highest thought above us all.

    Thank you for always inspiring us with your posts. Keep blogging! x

  4. Haha! Glad you like it. It’s my small way of saying thank you even if it’s impossible for me to give a Moleskine to all of you.

    Thank you for your great comments and I do read each and every one of them.

Thank you for reading my post. Please leave a reply.
