Happy New Year!

It's two hours and a half and it's a brand new year as I write this. I'm sure all of us are busy preparing a feast, no matter how humble and for some, a grand one, to welcome 2015. In our home, my husband has just finished cutting the lechon into pieces and my sister has put the jars of fruit salad that she prepared in the fridge to chill it. My daughter is now starting to make her delicious carbonara. My task is to cook the rellenong bangus, but this will be for lunch on New Year's Day, together with mom's morcon, which, I promise you, is the best you could ever taste! However, as 2015 ushers in a little later, Mom will not be here for she and my dad are together in the hospital. My dad, you see, is still fighting for his life and lies almost in a comatose more than a week after suffering a stroke. We don't know till when he'll be with us, but I worry not because I've entrusted Him to his Creator, the Lord my God. Last Saturday, our district pastor at the Cathedral of Praise went to visit my dad in the hospital and led him in a prayer of repentance and accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior. Now I am confident that my dad, when it's time, will go home to the Father. Meanwhile, 2015 looks promising whatever our present circumstances are. After all, God is in control! Let us entrust our future to our Lord because with Him, the future is always bright. Happy New Year!
