Kab Scout Investiture

August 17, 2017, Thursday, was the investiture of my nephew at school.  He is now member of the Kab Scout.  One of the most important event of the nephew’s in Grade one.  As usual, his parents will not be able to see this event because they are both busy at work.  I am the one accompanying the nephew on his Kab Scout Investiture.  It is not new to me because I was the one attending with him during his Kids Scout investiture.  The nephew is excited because of the new shorts, shirt, cap, new sock and kab scout scarf.  Truly, new stuffs will make the kids excited of the event.

There was a short lecture during the event.  The teacher gave short information about the responsibilities of the Kab Scout, and the meaning of the scarf.  The highlights of the event were the investiture rights.  We lighted the candle, put the scarf on their shoulder and the kids recited the kab scout promise.  The program lasted for two hours.  It was tiring because of the hot weather, but memorable to the kids, the parents, teachers, guardians and all the guest and visitors who are witnessing the investiture rights of the Kab Scout, Kids Scout and Boy Scouts.  Some parents gave presents to their kids after putting the scarf on their shoulder.  Memorable event indeed.

Life is a world of challenges

We do encounter lots of difficulties and trials in life.  It makes life more challenging. Though it makes it wants to give up especially when the trials are too heavy for us to take.  We sometimes asking why it happens to us?  But we must know that those difficulties won’t be given to us if we cannot handle it well.  Burdens makes us wiser and stronger.  We just must believe in ourselves that we will get back and surpass whatever trials and difficulties we are facing. And most importantly, we should keep the faith, continue praying and call God’s guidance always.

My brother is facing another trial now.  His second daughter was admitted in the hospital last Monday.  I feel his pain and feel so sorry for him.  He even said that he is the unluckiest person on earth.  It is not good to say it, but I understand that he said it out of desperation and frustration.  I know that my brother is a strong person.  He can handle whatever trials comes in his way.  But just recently, he just felt it is too much.  As a family, we extend our arms for him.  Give him comfort and encouraging words for him to not lost faith and believe in God.  Everything happens for a reason.  Maybe it is God’s way of testing him on how long the brother will be able to handle it and his faith to Him.  To my brother, do not give up and continue moving on.  We are here for you.  And will help you as much and we could.

So happy that we are okay now

My cousin and I have not talked each other for six years now.  It was just a pity quarrel that turned into a big issue because of our pride.  I must admit I did wrong to her but not as big and she did to me.  But I did not dwell on it.  I do not mind it before because I thought it will just die naturally however, she made the big issue out of it.  That is why our misunderstanding lasts for years.  I really wanted to talk to her and ask for forgiveness but refrain from doing it because of my family.  My cousin is the kind of person that will make you a lesser person.  This was all from the past.  My cousin and I are okay now.

My cousin and I are okay now.  And I so happy that my prayers were answered.  We did not talk about it anymore.  We just talk to each other like nothing bad happens before.  It is not good to bring back the sad and bad things that happen in the past.  The feeling is great knowing that we are okay now and we becoming friends again.  Though there are awkward moments when we talk.  Hopefully, we get over with this awkward feelings.  I wish that we will bring brack the closeness we had before.  Not sooner because we are like strangers as of now.

New Year, New Beginning

The year 2016 just bid goodbye.  It was an awesome year for all of us even though we have encountered lots of problems, trials and difficulties.  At some point in our life we wanted to give up and stop moving, but the determination to go on with life no matter how difficult it is, made all of us surpass the trials in life.  The year 2016 is a tough year to our family.  I can say that our faith, strength, and patience were tested.  Thanks to God for the strength and focus mind He has given to us.  We are able to find ways on how to embrace the trials and difficulties we faced.

The year 2017 just sits in.  New year and new beginning for all of us.  We welcome the year 2017 with a blast and praying that this year would be a blessed year for the family and to all the people in the world.  We just have to continue what we are doing and improve it for the better future.  As for myself, I am thinking of starting a new business (small one).  I am not getting any younger, I have to think of something fruitful for this year.  I will still do what I am doing and do the things that makes me happy.  I hope and pray that I start the new year with new beginning.  For better me and wiser me.  Amen!
