This day in history from:


I was disappointed last Friday when it seemed I would not get to play at all on Saturday.

While my EDSA Shrine choir was up for a practice session in the morning, I had errands that prevented me from attending. Perhaps in the next session I could attend and even invite them to practice at our office in the afternoon. It can get quite hot there with no air conditioner (the overtime fee to have them turned on during the weekend is prohibitive), but I guess we could make do with fans. They may not notice the temperature once they get to see the view. But I digress at this point.

Then I was informed that we were not playing for Saturday night's mass because my regular choir mates were attending a concert in Ateneo and they asked the nuns (there is a novitiate house in our subdivision) to sing in their place. The nuns have their own instrumentalist and I am not too presumptuous to volunteer to play with them.

Finally, I was informed that our regular venue for our chamber sessions was not available because the owner had some errands to do. With that, the other member's resolve was thinning and we eventually decided to postpone the session to next week.

But then, my law school classmate informed me he can show up. I quickly informed another member, Ariel Ureta, that he was coming. As he was as ready to play as I am, he readily agreed. We just held the session in my house instead.

To cut the long story short, I had my music fix yesterday. Session started at 2:00 p.m. and ended well after 5:00 p.m. It was more or less a jamming session because it was last minute. But it was a good session nonetheless and I felt satisfied. And that salvaged my "situation."

I hope the coming week is just as satisfying. Here's to a good week ahead for all of us.

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.
