“Honor your parents”

Me or my dad?

Want to see my dad when he was 33 years old? There you have it on the right side.

No, not really.

That’s me. ;-) But if you know my dad, you’ll agree that I looked just like him — only younger.

I was browsing over at Gayle’s photo page looking for shots for the new Grace Place website when I came across this picture. I thought I saw my dad!

I suddenly missed him. Especially that my car’s power steering has been needing the fluid for 2 weeks now and I can’t find where the heck is that hole where I place the fluid. Gah. Stupid.

My dad, he’s a genius. In a lot of things. In cars, in music — sings very well, in the farm, knows animals. One really cool guy. I wish I can be just a portion of what he is in terms of handling pressures in life.

This picture is in honor of my dad, who will be here in Manila on Friday to fix my car.

Oh, and yes, I also love my mom. ;D When everything settles in, she’s be the first to benefit from it. Ma, you know what I mean.

Dudes, let’s honor our parents. Heaven will fall down, but they will still remain standing for you. No wonder, the Bible says ““Honor your father and your mother so that you will live a long time in the land that the Lord your God is going to give you.”


As I mentioned in my previous posts, Joy started working here at office this week. We’re having fun so far, except that Johann is really suffering in the midst of all these changes. This morning, his cry is different, it breaks my heart. As if he’s saying, “Mom, you’re leaving again? Why is this happening more frequently?” I wanted to tell him this is going to be the case for a long time.
