Completely random thoughts my first day back in Manila:
*“You’ve been all around the world,” said the woman who inspected my passport in Birmingham. It reminded me of how blessed I am–God has given me some awesome travel opportunities these past few years.
*I’m frustrated with what is happening to my country. To quote a radio show host, “The problem with socialism is you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
*I was able to upgrade to business class due to all the frequent flyer miles I’ve earned. You have your own personal little movie screen in business class, so I took advantage of it. Here’s what I watched:
Very nice action flick.
Carpe diem to the extreme. Funny.
A great story and a fascinating look at life in India’s slums.
*I’m inspired by the number of my old college friends who are involved in some form of ministry. It’s just amazing to see what God has done in their lives. I hope some of the students we reach will follow this same path.
*I stayed in the gym while I was in the States, but my diet was pretty awful. My weight really hasn’t changed much, but I am ready for a well-deserved fat report.
*I went grocery shopping today. Someone was wearing a t-shirt with this written on the front: don’t worry, may mas panget sayo (translation: don’t worry, there’s someone out there uglier than you). I laughed.
*Being an uncle rocks.
