This day in history from:

How we spent our Valentine's Day

It is not as romantic as you may think.

The day started quite early. Nico joined me at the mall to get some roses for our "ladies," my mom and Bea, of course. We got four flowers because Nico and I would give them one each.

The next part of the mission is to hunt down an LCD TV. The TV in my office actually belongs to the office and of course, I could not hog that one all to myself forever. I have a set TV model and budget in mind.

I went to our favorite appliance store in said mall to shop around. There were other TVs over there with a price. But I had one particular brand and model in mind. But if I did not get it at that price, I would not buy it. That price is at least P5,000.00 off the list price but could go as much as P8,000.00.

I don't know what came over that store. It might be Valentine's Day fever or it might be a zeal to close a sale very early in the day (the "buena mano" phenomenon). But surprisingly, they gave it at the price I wanted.

So now, I'm a proud owner of a new LCD TV for my room. I will assign my old LCD TV to my office. It will still be used to the hilt there. And the fact that it's color scheme of silver and black matches Olivia is a bonus.

After installing the TV and boxing the old one, off I went to my actual date. I had chamber sessions with three friends. We just jammed to some tunes and the only song we actually finished was a Nora Aunor song called "Kapantay ay Langit" (loosely "High as the Sky").

Then a Valentine snack at home of pasta and barbecued pork skewers. Then choir, with my niece.

In all, it was a good day. Totally unromantic. But just as good.

Who needs romance, anyway? Just kidding.

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.
