My Gold Necklace was snatched while inside a public Utility Jeepney in broad daylight ( around 9:00 am) ! Three young men suddenly boarded the vehicle and instantly snatched my necklace. One tried to get my bag (with a 50thou money ready to be deposited to the bank) but miraculously they were not able to get it. It split seconds they jumped off and walk-away ( yes… they didn’t run…just walk..) with my precious and treasured necklace.
I went to the nearby police station and they immediately responded to my complaint. We roamed around the area in their mobile vehicle but we didn’t find them. End of the story…….
No! Around 1pm, the police station called and requested me to drop by their office to identify the person they apprehended for another snatching incident. Positively it was him… and confessed that my necklace was already pawned at a nearby pawnshop.
Was I able to get the necklace? Was their a connivance between the pawnshop and the snatchers?That’s another story for tomorrow….
( This is my entry of Wordfull Wednesday)
My last week of 2010 was struck by reality. I attended and sung on the funeral service of our church elder’s brother who died a day before Christmas and on the 30th of December went to a wedding of a close friend.
Above was the program I made. A joyous celebration of the uniting of Metzi and Uri Reyes and the sorrowful goodbye for Rope Maandig. King Solomon, the wisest king truly in right when he said in the book of Ecclesiastes that there is a time and a season for everything. A time to be HAPPY and a time to be SAD.
It is my prayer that for the year 2011, our sadness will be overcame by joy. Just keep on trusting God.
