It was beautiful, a beautiful sight in Lakefront circle.

The sun has just risen, but you can already feel its comforting warmth embracing you. There was a flock of birds that flew on to the horizon. I was walking, and there were people walking with me.

Oh, such a beautiful sight!

Families bonding; parents cherishing these precious moments and children enjoying their innocence. Couples reuniting, mending broken bonds and giving new chances. Friends who shared smiles, and with each passing moment, they knew each other better—their bonds strengthening.

You could just see the joy reflected in the eyes of these people, people who have someone walking with them, walking along side of them.

But, there were a few who walked alone. Staring out at the long path ahead of them, just walking, going to wherever their feet will take them.

What a beautiful sight it was!

Seeing these people to keep on walking, not letting the loneliness overtake them. They carried on and faced the sun—holding on to its promise of new beginnings and new chances.

The sun is high on the sky now. Shadows are already as tall as the trees. I paused to gaze at the long road.

Oh, how beautiful, what a beautiful sight indeed!

To see all those people keep moving forward, again and again, around the Lakefront circle.

Yesterday, was indeed, a blessed day.

Funny thing, I actually got my Tuesday planned out: study for my Literature exam, research some more for my Art Appreciation self-portrait performance and some other school work. I thought it was going to be a normal, dull, kind of boring Tuesday.

But I had no idea I would be so blessed that day. Blessings just kept on coming as if God is raining down so many blessings at once, and I’m wide awake to catch as many of these as possible.

How is my Tuesday a blessed day?

Let’s start with the night before. I remember while I was in the middle of struggling to focus on my Literature reader, I suddenly got an order for a One Direction t-shirt. The transaction was fast; it was a sealed deal and the shirt was printed and to be picked-up by the customer at my mom’s office by Tuesday morning. Praise God for the blessing!

Normally, I don’t have classes on Tuesdays, but by 9:30 a.m., I was almost done getting ready to leave for school. We have this “heart-to-heart” talk with our thesis professor; it’s basically a consultation. Anyway, I was stuffing the usual stuff to my bag: wallet, phone, phone charger, bottle of water, hygiene kit, hair brush, laptop and laptop charger. When I opened the drawer that contains all the chargers, I glanced upon the charger of my old Samsung Corby Wifi, which I’m selling. For some unknown reason, I just stuffed the Corby’s charger in one of my bag’s hidden pockets—where I keep the Samsung Corby phone. It turns out, me brining my old phone and charger out of the blue has a purpose. But that will be told later.

The university area has changed a bit. This actually led me and my friends into thinking that we have been gone for a while, even though we were only gone for about five days or so because classes got canceled. There was a KFC and Army Navy branch that is almost done setting up. Sounds like we will have new hang out places soon enough.

Most of my classmates, as well as the other section, waited patiently for our professor’s call. He calls two groups at a time. Some sessions take as short as 30 minutes, some lead up to an hour and a half. I was by the lobby with my thesis group, reviewing a bit for our Literature prelim exam, when I got an inquiry from a client for long-term video editing service. There are so many details in what he wants to happen, but, bottom line is, I’m going to have projects until October—and I’ll be making almost P4,000. Praise God for the blessing! The client hasn’t actually confirmed yet, but I am praying and I claim that this will be a sealed deal, in Jesus’ name!

The “heart-to-heart” talk didn’t go as our thesis group expected. It turns out there are still a lot of things to improve. At least we were informed early, rather than not being aware of our mistakes and risking the tendency of having to repeat from scratch next semester. After the consultation, we all went home. Usually, when I ride the jeepney from Pasay to Bicutan, I don’t usually go down the mall area, but rather near the Dona Soledad area. For some unknown reason, I checked my phone while the jeepney crossed the expressway intersection—turning left to the side of SM Bicutan. I received a text message from an interested buyer of my Corby. The client was within the area, and by the looks of his text, it looks like a done deal to me. He wanted to meet up in the mall, so I hopped off the jeepney, went in the mall and headed straight to the Food Court to wait for him. As I sat there and waited for the buyer, I uttered a prayer of thanks. Thank You, LORD for the blessing. So that is why I brought the Corby’s charger with me today—because someone will buy it later that night. If I hadn’t brought it, I would have gone home first and fought my way through rush hour traffic just to get back to the mall. Thank God for His perfect will.

When the buyer arrived, he just checked a few of the Corby’s specs, asked me about its basic operation and within about 30 minutes, we sealed the deal. I was able to sell my old phone for P2000. Now I have money to finish paying for my new phone, and extra money—because of the shirt order and the potential 10-month project—I have money to maybe buy an external hard drive or save up for my photo booth business investment.

Wow. Just… wow.

The LORD is good. Even though, lately, I’ve done a poor job of being His servant—there have been a couple of days wherein I failed to read the Bible and that I felt obligated of going to church—He still is faithful. He answered my prayers and gave me all these blessings. My God is an awesome God!

Tuesday was surely a blessed day. And I know, there will be more blessed days to come.
