"Ate, gising na. Late ka na!" I heard my brother say this morning, and with a heavy head, I got up and said, "Wag mong sabihin yan! There's power in words."
I left the apartment quite early than usual and I was a bit confident that I won't be late. It was such a beautiful morning, the sun is up, and I enjoyed walking along Karangalan Drive all the way to Gate 1.
After 10 minutes of waiting, I finally got to ride a jeepney bound for Mc Do Marcos Highway. From there I rode a jeepney bound for LRT (that's after intense running after the jeep and pakikipagbalyahan). When I reached LRT Santolan, I exercised by brisk walking and jogging just so I could catch the next train to Recto. I took the stairs because the escalator is jam-packed. Thank God I arrived at the platform just before the door of the train closes.
I rode the jeepney to the Global Mission Center and arrived a minute before the end of the grace period. In short, I wasn't late! :D Praise God!
While I was stuck in traffic along Marcos Highway, I sent a message to my brother saying, "Power of words talaga. Hanggang ngayon wala pa ako sa LRT!" He replied with, "Sorry. Hehe." But I knew deep within that nothing could be more powerful than God. I prayed that the Lord would work wonders so that I won't be late. And He granted my persistent plea. :)
Truly, with God, nothing is impossible! (Luke 1:37) ♥

But of course I learned my lesson, too. :) Sabi nga, "nasa Diyos ang awa, nasa tao ang gawa." And I couldn't help but agree to Ate Gigi when she said that due to the traffic situation here in Metro Manila, you can either be too early or too late. Well, I choose the former. And that begins today. :) So help me God. ♥
