Good job, Joe!

Let me take this time to praise my husband.

It has been almost 10 years since Joseph started working as a DSL service tech with the former Bellsouth, now AT&T. For the most part, this job has indeed been a blessing to us, to our family.

But there are times that he gets frustrated over his work. The repetition, the routine, the sometimes unreasonably demanding supervisors and managers and above all, the rude attitude of customers – all these factors combined have turned his job from an initially interesting endeavor into a dreadfully wearisome task, making his job an unpleasant experience – AT TIMES.

That’s why it was a joy to receive a letter from AT&T citing Joseph as among the top 10 of their crew who gave the BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE this past month. (This isn’t the first time, by the way. I just never blogged about it before). It’s been a while since AT&T has done this for their crew. I am so glad that the management has decided to revive this practice.

A little remuneration was given for the effort, but it’s not so much about the reward itself, but it is in knowing that the company recognizes the hard work and dedication he pours into his job that is valuable to him, and I dare say, to the rest of the crew as well.

With all the pressures he gets in his kind of work – I would say this one is definitely hard-earned.

Keep up the good work, Babe! You know that the Lord will reward all that you do, when you do it as unto Him. Promotion comes from Him.

Luv Yah! … and I’m looking forward to more gift cards in the coming months… :oD

Good News, At Last

It is with great joy that I share with you the latest news about my father.

He had his lab tests done the other day. According to his doctor (an Internist), the results came out very good – meaning, his blood sugar, creatinine, cholesterol levels, etc., are all low. These levels apparently are low enough that the doctor decided to reduce the intake and discontinue some of the medications my father has been maintaining since months ago. Also, my father has gained a bit of weight, from 56 kilos last November, to 59.5 kilos as of yesterday. Praise the Lord!

These news are like music to my ears. We’ve not had a positive development in a while as far as my father’s health is concerned. That’s why I am very thankful to God, for this could only be because of His healing touch upon my father’s life.

I do hope and pray that good news will keep on coming until my father’s full recovery. According to my earthly, limited mind – he still has a long way to go. The wounds from the surgery on his heels have not quite healed yet. It will take months for those to heal given his diabetic condition. On top of this, my dad has a peripheral artery disease (a condition developed mostly by diabetics) that causes painful burning sensations on his legs contributing to his sleepless nights at times.

But these conditions are nothing that our God cannot handle. He is a miracle working Father and I know that what our carnal mind may think impossible, with God it is possible.

So, please do help me pray for my father’s continuous recovery. Pray specifically that:

  • my father will have a miraculous healing from the conditions I’ve mentioned above, and that he’ll soon become well enough to travel
  • his application for a passport and US visa will be approved without hindrance or delay from the enemy so that I can have him here in the US with me in no time
  • we will have enough finances to be able to get my father to the US

Thank you very much for praying and believing with me for my family. The Lord’s promises are YES and AMEN to those who believe in Him!
