"So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine..”
For the past week, my husband and I were having second thoughts of attending our church’s service tomorrow.. We both thought that a 5 am service is too early for us considering our work schedule.. We don’t have work on Sundays but we do on Saturdays. And our shift starts around 3am and lasts until 10am or sometimes, 2pm.. Thinking that we won’t get enough sleep if we decided to go, we told our cell leaders that we won’t be attending.. But we stumbled upon this beautiful song and pondered on the lyrics.. We then realized that we got it all wrong.. The service is not for us, but it is for Him. We were so focused on our selfish needs that we fail to discern that waking up early is nothing compared to what Jesus has sacrificed for us. He has sacrificed His life to save us, it’s our turn to honor Him for that. Tomorrow will be our first time to worship Him during sunrise and we’re sure it will be a wonderful feeling.. We ended up texting our cell leaders to confirm our attendance for tomorrow’s events.
Here’s the link to the song I mentioned above.. It’s such a beautifully-written and breath-taking song..

Finally found some time to open wedding gifts. We especially love prints made by #woodencanvasbacolod. The grainy texture of wood perfectly matches our wedding’s vintage theme. Thanks again, Mark and Kat! :) 💗💑👌😊 original photo by @quincyjohn_ of #yapphotography
