This day in history from:

Stumped

I'm generally known to my children as a know-it-all.

Because I basically am.

I could compete with and win over my bosses in my old law firm as we try to answer the noontime "Jeopardy" during my Makati days.

Back in the day, people have egged me to join "Who Wants to me a Millionaire." They say, I may even breeze through it without lifelines.

I have enormous stack knowledge, which probably helped me pass the bar.

At present, my children ask me anything and I usually come up with the right answer, be it for their homework or just to satisfy their curiosity. I basically never miss.

But then this evening, over the telephone, Bea asked me a question that stumped me. It's not that I don't know the correct answer. It was basically because of who asked the question.

The question seemed simple enough. But it took the prompting of a client for me to give an answer Bea could understand.

And when I told Bea the answer, she also seemed to understand why I had difficulty answering it.

For the first time, I was temporarily at a loss for words. I was stumped.

She asked, "Dad, what it adultery?"

To those who understand why that question stumped me, I can only say, "Exactly!"

That's it for now. Got to rest.

Good morning.

Side Prayers

PRAYER FOR GENEROSITY
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

THE LAWYER'S PRAYER
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.

THE JABEZ PRAYER
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.
