my day by the bay….

sunday,,, October 10th… it’s church day, my favorite day of the week! i get to give back  all the praises and glory to my Lord Jesus…

however, my mother dear wanted to go for a walk along Manila Bay this morning just as i was on my way to church… i was hesitant to go with her really, because today was the 10-10-10 (October 10, 2010) PASIG run where organizers will attempt the largest number of registered runners to land in the Guinness Book… and venue would be in that area and expect traffic re-routing and all…

hmmm,,, again faced with a dilemma, i stopped the car and prayed a short prayer asking God what to do… finally, i turned left instead of right (where my way to church is) to my mother to join her, and it was a day well spent as i discovered beautiful things! there was no traffic anymore since the run event was finished by the time we reached the bay.

first, it was a sunny/cloudy sky, beautiful time for a walk indeed!

there were anglers, joggers, cyclists, even masseurs, vendors of snacks, what have you…









then the most amazing guy i saw, he was snipping, trimming, shaping an empty PET bottle of soda and turning it into an art!! i was reaaaaally amazed because nothing was glued, every part of the masterpiece was shaped and formed in one piece, even the bird and the butterfly!!! what a guy!!! i bought his artwork for P75.00 just because…. i am keeping it to remind me that GOD takes care of all of us and we are not left with nothing!!! even garbage can be turned to something beautiful as long as we look at it as something of beauty. isn’t that amazing???!!! (Romans 12:6 “In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.”)










i was able to catch the 2:30 p.m. church service and today turned out to be a wonderful day for me and my mother dearest!! Praise God for that 🙂
