Happy Holidays and best wishes for the New Year!

Until I find myself again in my own place and alone I think this will be my last blog for the year.

For a change, instead of our kids and their respective families spending the holidays with us, we decided, since there are just the two of us, and while we still can, to be with them in Manila, thus, rescuing them not only from the hassle of making sure that all the kids are accounted for in what is getting to be a stressful trip during the holiday season, but also saving them the travel expenses that are not easily cough up these days especially if you are bringing your family.

While wishing you Happy Holidays and all the best for 2017, let me just leave you with these thoughts….

…..and a video made special for it is a beautiful song rendered by one dealing with autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

“Hallelujah”

I’ve heard about this baby boy
Who’s come to earth to bring us joy
And I just want to sing this song to you
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
With every breath I’m singing Hallelujah
Hallelujah

A couple came to Bethlehem
Expecting child, they searched the inn
To find a place for You were coming soon
There was no room for them to stay
So in a manger filled with hay
God’s only Son was born, oh Hallelujah
Hallelujah

The shepherds left their flocks by night
To see this baby wrapped in light
A host of angels led them all to You
It was just as the angels said
You’ll find Him in a manger bed
Immanuel and Savior, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

A star shown bright up in the east
To Bethlehem, the wisemen three
Came many miles and journeyed long for You
And to the place at which You were
Their frankincense and gold and myrrh
They gave to You and cried out Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I know You came to rescue me
This baby boy would grow to be
A man and one day die for me and you
My sins would drive the nails in You
That rugged cross was my cross, too
Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah
Hallelujah
