Blessed be the ROCK

"Hossanah! Blessed be the ROCK and may the God of my salvation be exalted!"

Dear Sage, It's sunday today. Your Glee club sang at the Maria Dela Strada Church in Katipunan. You were with Elysa, Perika, Chirbee, Evi and other classmates that I don't really know. At first you were in the second row but for some reason, in the middle of the mass, you teacher asked you to join the others in the front row.

After the mass we dropped off Elyza and Tito Ed at Ali Mall. then we went to Megamall to have lunch. I bowled 5 games. You didn't join me because your Lola said that she doesn't want you to get tired for your sunday afternoon review.

For the first time I saw you really ride the bike this afternoon. While we were away our help, Ate Ning, assisted you while you try to learn to balance yourself in a moving bike with two wheels. You know what's amazing? Your AteNing herself doesn't know how to ride.

We went to Raj, our village's local Jack Sparrow, to look for DVD's. Unfortunately he wasn't open for business. While you were in your bike, I was in my rubber shoes, running beside you.

I was not only burning calories, I was also burning bridges. Some bridges need to be burned so that no one else will get hurt... that is, no one else except me.

some days, the joys outweigh the pain. But not today... I actually prayed for rain. It didn't come.

"When you're mad at the world
and you feel like you are losing contol,
all you need to survive,
is a little bit of soul... woo hoo wo ho wo ho...
a little bit of soul." -Jon Bon Jovi

Amen, Jon. Amen

I agree. You need a degree in divinity to read the gospel according to Jon.
