Today, I became a ninang again. I lost track to how many godchildren I have already. It is a privilege for me to be asked as a ninang because it means the parents want me to take part in their journey in bringing up their child. Since I became a Christian, it was my first time to really witness a dedication and be a part of it. And I was really blessed!
This is me and my kumare, Rhodes with Baby Rikhaela
After the dedication, my brother, Christian and I watched the movie, “Life of Pi”. It was interesting because I remembered when I was in highschool and college, some of my very close friends, well even until now calls me “Pay”, “Pi” and the Pi sign. So I felt like it is my movie. Hehehe… Just a little bit But anyway, I was totally clueless what the movie was all about. And I was amazed that the gospel was even shared in the movie. Really cool. I have many favorite parts in the film but I was struck by the last few conversations of Pi and the writer. The goal of Pi was not just to tell the story but to help the writer believe in God. At the last part, Pi asked the writer which version of the two stories did he believe. Then, the writer responded, it was the first one. Then Pi told him, it is the same with God. How I interpret it is that the writer wasn’t able to see what really happened in Pi’s journey. He wasn’t there. And he can’t really be sure that the first version was the real one. But he believed in Pi. Just like believing in God.
Lastly, God indeed speaks through others… I have received wisdom today from someone which I didn’t expect but was praying for it. Isn’t God amazing? He hears our prayers. He answers.
