So help me God

All About Faith, It's my Life, Little Antoinette Add comments

When  I became part of Sto. Rosario Parish choir about 12 years ago, I was able to use the gift of music which God gave me. I enjoyed singing in the choir. I felt that my talent in singing has been honed and developed further. The joy was different every after mass. I felt that I became closer to God for using His gift to praise Him. It was really a wonderful feeling. :)

While I was in the choir I learned different songs which can be sang in the mass; songs of praise; songs of faith and inspiration. When I was in college. I was assigned by our department head to organize a small choir who will sing in the mass offering to be held in the school. I also led the choir who sing in a first Friday mass offered in my previous company. I believe that I made God happy by sharing my talent. :) .

Last Saturday, my friend Victor and I attended the album launch of one of my two favorite choirs, Hangad (the other one is Bukas Palad Music Ministry). Both group originated from Ateneo de Manila. As I watch and listen to the songs offered in Hangad’s new album, I dream of sending my daughter, Antoinette, to ADMU, so she would have an opportunity of becoming the next generation member of either Hangad or Bukas Palad Music Ministry. Well, I wouldn’t have the means to do so but with God’s help I believe that I will. :)

Tonight, as I listen to the inspiring songs of Hangad choir, I realized that it doesn’t matter whether someone would be part of a famous choir or not. What matters is that when you becthome part of a ministry, you do it for God’s glory. :) What is important is that, you would able to use God’s gift to praise Him and to spread His love to other people.

I still have the dream of sending Antoinette to Ateneo, though. And to top it all, her third name happens to be Jesuita. :) She will just turn 6 years old in October. She has a long way to go. But, I believe that God has amazing plans for her, like He has for me. I just need to be faithful. :)

Here is one of my favorite songs by Hangad choir.

Ciao! :)
