A House Of Cards Valentine's Day

So, after my last Traveler Wife post, I figured I might as well talk a bit about how the "post" Valentine's day went. 

After Mr. Punch and I got home, I was welcomed by flowers on the table and my grouchy self finally told him the white box I was carrying was for him. He did not open it, we just went straight to bed and figured the next day would be the official Valentine's day...but we had another thing coming.

Over to Saturday morning, we did the early morning usual and our day begun. We had still not made a reservation for this Indian restaurant Mr. Punch had talked about for the Valentine's day lunch or dinner. I mean what was the rush? "It cant be full, it's not really Valentine's day!" I thought to myself. So after breakfast and ...(really cant remember what we did here), I opened my laptop and got on Netflix. House of Cards was on my mind.

The Appointed Time?

No kidding, tough situations make you ask a lot of questions! Lately I've found myself questioning a number of things about my faith. I wonder if what I have always thought was the answer is really the answer, especially when I apply it and get no results.

Today's question was pretty much the question on my heart last week. You know the famous Habakkuk scripture of the vision being for an appointed time right? You know, the scripture we quote when we need to encourage someone that seems to be "waiting" on the Lord for just too long? Yeah that scripture - Habakkuk 2:3

The Traveler Wife | Valentines O'clock

Date: February 14th, 2013
Trip from: Midway International Airport, Chicago
Trip to: Billy Bishop Airport, Toronto, Canada
Flight: Porter Airlines, 394 . 7.20 pm flight
Written: In the Air

I know I growled in my last post about not continuing with this series, as much as I would love to stop, I have decided this might be my therapeutic avenue to keep me sane in this thing called long distance relationship.

So currently I am on my way back to Chicago but I have decided to recap my trip to Toronto first before we discover what this current trip has in store for me and have it up for the next post.

I walked out of the office holding my white box that had his valentine's gift wrapped. I was in a hurry because I had been delayed a bit by office work and had a flight to catch - more like had a valentine's day to catch. Then I got to my office elevator and figured how weird I looked carrying an obvious valentine's day gift, I mean, it was valentines day! I decided I may not be able to stand the stares and whispers from co-workers and the fellow train passengers on my way to the airport so quickly I grabbed my scarf and wrapped it.

"Help Me Lord" is The New Prayer

I woke up yesterday morning to read my daily devotion -Our Daily Bread, Hyperseeing- which in the weirdest way addressed how I have been feeling this whole 2014. *Btw, I am so over this year already...I want 2015 to come already, lol* Anyways, right after I read the devotion and meditated, the words got me tweeting. In about 10 minutes max on the bus on my way to the office, I tweeted;
  • For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son - Rom 8:29
  • And now I am beginning to understand that the "conforming" is not always an easy process. 
  • That "conforming" is also the "refining", which speaks of fire for gold to come out shiny (glorious). It hurts, it burns! 
  • But we are supposed to count it all Joy right? I am still trying to find how to do that. 
  • These are the times you don't even know what to pray. You wake up in the morning and just say "Help me Lord". lol

The Traveler Wife | Feeling Exhausted

Date: February 2nd 2014 
Trip from: Billy Bishop Airport, Toronto, Canada
Trip to: Midway International Airport, Chicago
Flight: Porter Airlines, 383. 7.00 am flight
Written: In the Air 

Obviously I'm getting tired of being a traveler wife...this series is probably coming to an end as it is becoming difficult being happy with all this traveling back and forth. As usual, today we woke up at 4.30 am today. *sigh* I am sleepy, tired and most of terribly missing my husband already. This is not the life I signed up for in June 2012 o! Okay maybe it was but I sure did not expect it to last this long.
