Bottled tidbits 1

Inside my room, tucked neatly behind my green pillow, was Spurgeon's Prayers, a most wonderful book I borrowed from the church library. I opened it, leafed through it, and started some serious reading. I eventually came to the fourth page, and a line stood out from among the printed letters:

"Lord, teach us to love Thee more."

Without finishing the chapter, I closed the book and fell on my knees.

Recently I attended the Youth's post-graduation special fellowship rightly called "Back to School, Stay with God." It was an eye-opener indeed, for through it I was reminded of the reason why I study: to glorify God. I confess, I sometimes lose sight of that vision. But thanks be to Him for realigning that case of astigmatism.

"Do you want to go to Cavite?" Manong Ralph asked, completely jolting me out of my pseudo-sleep state.

"Why not?" I said, then added, "It has almost been two years since we've been there." The last time we visited our family friends in Imus was in the summer of 2004 when I was still a wide-eyed soon-to-be-college-freshman in UP, when my eyes were still functional even if they were naked.

From Shaw, we took the MRT to Taft, hailed a bus to Baclaran, and from there, waited for an airconditioned bus under the scorching heat of the sun. We had to bear the awful smell of sewer, garbage, and a combination of both. Ah, the joy of commuting.
