This day in history from:

Car-less Month

I took the car yesterday to the shop for some much needed repairs.

The front and rear bumpers have to be repaired and/or replaced because of the mishap I had with it last February. And yes, it took all that time to get the insurance paperwork done and I just put the car in just yesterday.

Also, the doors were showing signs of rust, too early for a two-year old car. But that's covered by warranty.

The service crew promised me a 15 day return on the bumper repairs.

Unfortunately, the repair and/or replacement of the doors will take about a month.

So how will I survive a month with one car less than usual and my dad using the other car more often? Tune in to further posts.

As a matter of fact, I have been experiencing being car-less for the past two days. I had to commute come from some point in the city from Tagaytay because I did not make arrangements (on purpose) to be picked up from my government consultancy.

And of course, I had to commute home from the car shop when I took the car in.

Mind you, this is a familiar experience. I had been commuting during my school days and I only started driving extensively when I started to work.

There is a feeling of freedom in commuting that I don't get when I have a car. I don't have to worry about the car and all the hassles that go with it, from the parking to the fear of getting towed, scratched, bumped into or worse...

The only problem I have with commuting at present is the current levels of pollution. And I find myself more fatigued when I get back home. But that could be a blessing since that would be less sedentary than having a car. I get to walk a lot more.

Anyway, I got back yesterday in time for choir as I used this new-found freedom to move around the city on some "errands" after I left the car on the shop. It was then that I appreciated "not" having the car.

Choir went well. Nothing significant or spectacular, though.

For today, Bea's egging me to go to the mall. I want to oblige since it was the end of her periodicals and she needed the break. But there may be a problem. My dad will use the other car today.

Perhaps Bea is up to commuting today as well? She might as well learn how to this early.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
