looking forward to Christmas

...yep. Work has been quite busy lately, and I guess it'll stay busy for the rest of the year. I was interviewed last Thursday for a different project, which, if all goes well, I'll be moving to the first day of work next year. The project I'm currently working on, even though it's cutting-edge stuff, has sorta lost it's appeal to me. I'm very much grateful to God for giving me a job, especially the way things are these days, but I just feel like I want to try something different. I was told the new position will involve some traveling, so I guess I'm looking forward to that as well.


As an update to previous posts, I'm still going out with the girl I mentioned. However, I'm really praying to God for direction as far as how I should move forward. It's one of those "I'm not 100% sure if this is the one" type things. At this point you may be thinking: "uh, oh. Pedro, the mere fact that you're saying that means that you don't really like her or don't see yourself with her forever and ever!" I assure you that's not the case. I don't say that from a personal standpoint. I think this girl pretty much meets all my "requirements", except one, which I'll keep to myself for now. Please believe, she is definitely not lacking in the looks department (I happen to think she's gorgeous), and so far has demonstrated 99% Interest Level towards me. I say it more from a "God's will for my life" standpoint. Meaning, am I ready for a relationship right now? Even if I'm ready, should I get into a relationship? Is this the one He has for me, or am I leaning on my own understanding? I am trusting God to reveal what He has for me. After all, He already knows the outcome, I just need to trust Him and not worry about it.


This Christmas, God willing, I'll be going to Puerto Rico for a couple of days. Needless to say, I'm really looking forward to it. It's been really cold in Texas lately, and I can't wait to go back to hot, humid weather. Also, I miss my mom, I miss my dad, and I miss my friends. *tear*

While I'm in Puerto Rico, I think I want to try and play some Tekken. I'll also try and go salsa dancing, see old friends, maybe visit an old teacher to see how she's doing. I'm sure I'll post on all that later.


This weekend (God willing) we're going back to Palestine, for a Christmas party at the Beto unit. I can't wait to see the guys again. It feels like forever since I've seen them.


Today I met with the From Prison To Joy prison ministry folks for some coffee and dessert. I'm now motivated to pick that back up, and get some translation work going. I really have to focus on my Hispanic brothers on the inside that need to read the letters/articles that have to be translated. I get so caught up in stuff that I neglect the important things that God has allowed me to participate in. I almost feel selfish, thinking about it. In any case, I'm glad God got me together with the people in the ministry, so I can pick up the slack again.


I know this post doesn't really have a point to it. However, I think I'll start writing more posts like these. Sometimes I wait so much before posting so I actually have some "thing" to say, but then what happens is that I forget things. Also, I think it would be nice (for me) to have a collection of thoughts, so in the future I can look back at what was going on in my life. I also think it will be interesting to see if any changes occur in the way I express myself.


May God bless you and keep you.
Until next time,

ps. You may or may not have noticed, but I added the "Verse of the Day" and "Google Translate" toolbars on the right side. Hopefully they don't clutter the screen too bad. I like them. :)


  1. Congrats on the relationship. Hope God reveals his will to you soon.

    Which days are you going over for? I'm going from the 23 to the 1st, maybe we can meet up.

    Post anything, post often. That the main reason why I'm blogging as well. Not for the internet community but more for myself and have something to look at in the future.

    God Bless you too,

  2. God willing, I'll be there from the 24th to the 4th. We definitely have to meet up at some point. It's been a long time, my friend. :)
