Early Birthday Gift

You can barely see it but my smile is from ear to ear. There is a glimpse of my dimple, though. 🙂 

My desk has a lamp, two books, and a MacBook Pro. I keep it uncluttered. When I went into my room last night I saw a plastic bag, but it was still dark so I was could hardly see what it was and why it was there. But I was certainly sure I did not leave anything on my table when I left. To my surprise, there it was, the Canon 80D. Its the camera I’ve been eyeing but definitely not praying for – price is about $$$$. Haha! 

My parents knew I was planning on buying a new camera. They knew I was quite anxious to get a new one as soon as possible but budget was tight. They were aware that I needed a replacement. The 80D is expensive so I did not even bother but did hope a little. My parents went and got it for me. I would have stopped them if I was there. See, my parents are exceedingly kind. Im not saying this because they gave me a camera but they really are nice and lovely. They love to give and spread joy. They portray Jesus – a giver. Im blessed to have them. I will always be thankful that they are my adoptive parents. 

Mommy and Daddy, 

Maraming salamat po sa regalo nyo. Sa totoo lang,  hindi ko kayang tanggapin dahil ayaw ko na gumagastos kayo ng malaking pera. Hindi man tayo mayaman pero naiibigay nyo ang kailangan ko at kung ano ang magpapaligaya sa akin. Salamat po sa pagmamahal nyo at pagaaruga sa akin. Mahal na mahal ko po kayo. 


I opened the box and prayed over it. I want it to be used for God’s glory. Sometimes we get busy doing things for our little kingdom, but there is a bigger kingdom and that is God’s. I prayed that God will give my projects where I can use this new camera – local or international. I mostly do videos and Im excited to use this camera for storytelling. I decided to go on a missions trip in May under Adventures in Missions. Its a 6 day trip in Chicago. I am very excited about it! 🙂 

I have not taken pictures with my new camera because Im waiting for my parents so we can take a selfie! 🙂 

In Christ,
