Things have been going well these couple of days, and praise God indeed for this flood of blessings, however small.
First was yesterday, when I had to sign up for my church's youth camp. Spaces were seriously limited, so even though I had no funds on hand, I gave my roommate-to-be the go-ahead to put my details down first. What I was worried about was whether my parents would allow me to go or not.
When I got home, I showed the info sheet to my mother. As usual, she said 'You go talk to your father la.'
When I showed it to my father, just when I was getting ready to hear 'Go talk to your mom' (My response of 'Already did' was actually waiting on my lips), he said 'I'll pay.'
I went silent for awhile, although my dad didn't notice as he was still busy reading the details (or was he?). After awhile I found my voice to say, 'What's that?'
'I'll pay I'll pay.' he said, waving an invisible fly away.
'O... ok.' I muttered, still in shock.
Praise God eh. The work of the tithe.
Then today, I sold off my electric guitar, which Ben gave to me so long ago, after he essentially got it free from China. Made $200 out of it. Originally I planned to get a sword from Caesar's, for Halloween, but decided it wasn't worth it because Benny had that sword anyway, and also I have a million things that would be much more useful than a sword.
So then I thought of a sound card. AN x-Fi sound card, to be precise. That was my original plan after all, to get my speakers first, then the x-Fi sound card. And then my sound system would be uberised.
Then I decided to wait, again.
When I got back, another idea hit me. I've been wanting a new handphone for ages! This would be a perfect chance for me to pick one up.
So after playing around with the model that I had been eyeing, I called my dad to ask for permission. He said that he didn't mind in principle, but he advised me strongly to think it over.
And after some persuasion I did.
And I'm glad I did. Because my father dug my contract sheet up, and I'm due for new plan eligibility.
Blessings keep fallin' on my head
they keep fallin'
they keep fallin' on my headdd...
We're getting new phones Wednesday.
