2013 was a year full of surprises, blessings, hardships, and lessons. Now, I am in another chapter of my life. I will be the conductor of our church choir. I will be a music teacher in a school. I wanted to do another Papurihan-like project in the future. Lord, help me be a better person this year. :)

Every good gift and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. James 1:17 (ESV)
