It's a Girl!

We're having a girl!

I think I asked the doctor 5 times if she was sure that it's a girl. I couldn't believe it because girls are rare in the family.

The day after and it has sunk in already...we're having a girl! I now have someone to dress up in cute pink clothes and share other girly stuff with. More importantly, I have to learn how to raise a boy and girl.

Truly, nothing is impossible with the Lord! Now, I pray to carry this little girl full term with no complications. All by God's grace!

Museo Pambata

A couple of days ago, we decided to take Timmy out to an educational trip. Since we've already decided to homeschool him, we might as well start exposing him to things other than toy stores and the mall.

After choosing from several options, we ended up taking him to Museo Pambata. I wasn't sure if this place was good so I prayed really hard that it's where we should go.

By God's grace, it was a nice place for a kid. You can touch most of the things there so Timmy was very happy with that. The room had themes from science to old Manila.

All in all it was a great trip. Timmy enjoyed it and he was happy with the museum.

Mommy Again

Having a son is such a blessing and I'm excited to be a mommy again for the third time. Yes...we found out that we are expecting another bundle of joy which is due to arrive February 2011.

My hubby has been bugging me the last three weeks that I am pregnant because he noticed changes in me that I quickly dismissed. Last night, we got our confirmation.Thank you Lord for the blessing of life!

My Strength

In the crazy days (weeks even) that has passed, I've grown tired and almost burned out. I just want to stop, rest and do nothing but we all have things to to do that we should do even if we don't feel like it.

It helps that my husband is my biggest encourager and to know that I am doing what He wants. To be at the center of His will is where I want to be. Burned out or not, I will do what He wants. He is my strength, healer and provider.

"I love you, o Lord, my strength." Psalm 18:1

Bad News

Getting bad news is not fun. It's been three weeks since our helper left for her vacation and she never came back so now I am left to do all the house work, cook, take care of the little boy and run a business. Hay! Thank God my hubby is helping me lot with the chores and we usually eat out on weekends plus my son helps with the chores too.

While at the beach, I came across this very encouraging and comforting verse.

"He will have no fear of bad news;
his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD."
Psalm 112:7

We can look at bad news through God's perspective. It's not bad news but merely a change that will bring about good things according to God's perfect plan.

Beach Break

The beach is such a nice place. The white sand, relaxing sound of the waves and the fresh air.

We were blessed with a trip to the beach and had the best time. We ate, slept, relaxed, swam and had fun. It was the perfect weekend getaway, the best way to celebrate my hubby's birthday and see the wonders of God's creations.
