Train of Thanks 11

Because we’ll never run out of things to be grateful for.

I am posting this Train of Thanks post not on a Monday because I was very busy yesterday. But better late than never right? The good thing is even when we sometimes get behind our schedule and frustrate our plans, God is never late in accomplishing His plans in our life. That alone is a great blessing we can always praise Him for.

Let’s start the round up!

  1. I am thankful for the kindness of my client for allowing me to take a leave for a week and for her payment for my VA services – just in time for my Davao errands! I am thankful that my PayPal account does not remain stagnant. 😀
  2. I was forced to rest from my daily work due to *excuse me* LBM. I am thankful for the healing, and also thankful for the rest.
  3. This week has the first payday weekday of the year! Yay!
  4. I was given a chance to speak about the topic “Feed My Sheep”, in reference to Jesus’ reinstatement of Peter on John 21. During and after my message preparation, my appreciation of Jesus being the Good Shepherd to His pasture soared higher. I even posted a status about it. Researching on the behaviour of the sheep and relating it to myself being a wayward sheep at times, I could not help myself but thank God for tending me in spite of all my waywardness. In every sermon preparation, the speaker is the first recipient of every rebuke, every instruction and every blessing God’s word brings.Quote 3
  5. I could not thank God enough for His timely provisions. I thank God for people He uses to bless me materially so I have some money to spare for the busy week to come (has now come as I am writing this).

What are your thanksgivings for the week?

Train of Thanks 01

Because we’ll never run out of things to be grateful for.

I’ve been planning of to do this series for a long time but procrastination has taken over me – sa mahabang panahon! There were blessings in the past, both big and small, yet I wasn’t able to declare my how grateful I am for all those blessings. Beginning this Monday, , I’d like to put pressure on myself so I can get more things done. Enough of pabebe days. Haha!

So what are the things that I am thankful for this week? Let me recall…

  1. I got a new buddy to help me in my tasks! Yay! This means, more blogs to post, maximized internet connection (and fee) and more encouragement/pressure to finish my long overdue dream book! Isama na lahat ng pwedeng trabahuhin! De joke lang.
  2. I happen to pass by Book Sale in SM City Taytay (my first time to visit the place) and saw a book entitled Your Money Map by Howard Dayton, CEO of Crown Financial Ministries. Upon skimming the contents, I’ve learned that this book complements my lessons from Biblical Financial Study course I completed a few months back. I feel pumped up! Na hindi ko rin alam kung bakit. Haha
  3. New set of friends! My P.S.A. /blogger friends who are so warm-hearted and welcoming plus a great source of hugot lessons and encouragement + tons of tawa and sabaw moments.
  4. PayPal payment from my client. I am a part-time VA at night actually, and receiving a notification from PayPal is a delight. Hallelujah!
  5. This Sunday’s topic about priorities is ‘dart sa heart’. At the end of the message, it made me evaluate all my decisions in the past and my desires for the future. Am I really giving God the credit due Him as evidenced by my priorities? Something to ponder.

And in all of this, the highest praise is to God!

How about you, what are you thankful for the past week?
