This Children's Day Celebration Today is children's day in Thailand. The children are busy and excited to join the games prepared for them. Even parents are looking forward for this day. It is celebrated every first saturday of January. Malls have their own preparations for kids to enjoy especially the giving gifts. Universities, colleges, and other schools are also open for children to join the said event. It's nice to have this kind of activity wherein children were given a chance to participate, enjoy, and receive gifts. For more than 3 years now that our kids joined this awaited event. Parents are enjoying as well, so do we, seeing our kids having lots of gifts and games to enjoy as well. Children went to different places and receive different gifts, enjoy the food and games prepared for each group or organization. It's fun. We don't have like this in the Phil. AJ joined the painting contest He also participated in Robotics control And take a pose And another pause with the persons' in charge. People are busy coming back and forth, everybody I think is involved especially those who are working in the government offices, schools and universities, and even malls, department stores and the like. They joined together for this said event and share what they have for the children.

Last Monday, the homeschooling program of the kids resumed. Back to normal again for quite sometime because of so many activities last month. It seems that it was just yesterday and here comes another year. The kids are not quite excited anymore of the homeschool because for them especially for my teenager, it's boring. However, he needs to finish and do his homeschool for a better tomorrow. My preschooler, AJ, loves to do it still as long as kuya is there with him. At least they have a little of fight because 'boys are really boys'. AJ has a lot of questions but Em2 (my teenager) has few words unless I will ask him of his crush. Homeschooling is something to remember but not quite interesting especially if there are only few kids learning together. Yet if you give more time to it you will learn a lot!

It seems that New Year has just began but the memories of having parties are still fresh. The start of the year, is indeed a blessing from the Lord and keeps on going and moving forward to another step of life. Another opportunity to make things right and doing something for the kingdom. This week we had the opportunity to teach and mingle with our students again. Its also a time to share the experience we have had last year and to encourage them to keep on learning. It's indeed a privilege. Hope this year will be a blessed year to everyone. Though sometimes we may fail, fall and discouraged. Let's keep on moving in reaching our goal for we know that He who promised is Faithful...

Our friends singing, the locals. Today marks the first sunday of the year! I wrote something because I want it special. Many things are happening around the world, things are changing, people sometimes changed even the circumstances and way of life changed. But our Creator never changed, He is always the same yesterday, today and forever. Way of life changed like the Peters family I've read a while ago in the Yahoo news. Her husband died not knowing that he won a $10M in the lottery, leaving his family this much amount without knowing it. This man is 79-year-old, a retired hat factory worker, and he suffered a fatal heart attack while working in his yard in Danbury. Without knowing it he won that big amount of money leaving for his widow, the children and grandchildren. Even the widowed wife is not sure of what she is going to do with her money at the moment. I mean, what life on earth for? Are we made for a purpose? For me, it's better to prepare now - to know where are you going? Is there a life after our life ends? Hope you will ponder upon it and search for it. For us, life is not complete without our Creator and Redeemer! We always hold on to our anchor! A Blessed New Year to all!!!
