" Who Am I " for 2009

Let me share you my vision for 2009 at the same time looking back at 2008. For all the good things and bad, blessings and tragedies, happiness and sadness, success and failures. Let us look back and ask ourselves... " who am i" ? That would surely inspire us to look back that we can't have all these things without the Almighty God...

I am thanking him for everything....career, family and love...It's all because of Him. And I believe, It's still " God " that would be centered for 2009.

Here's is the song that really inspires me...so powerful and makes me sing passionately....

Hope you'll gonna like this...

" WHO AM I "

Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt
Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
Vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
Vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am
I am Yours

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
Vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am
I am Yours

I am Yours
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
'Cause I am Yours
I am Yours

I finally got the chance to write this blog. A chance to inform my friends ( studio clients ) that I had a slight change on my work schedule. Starting November 10, 2008 , I'm going back to school and will be taking up BS IT at Holy Cross of Davao College...

I finally decided to pursue my college education for I realized that it will further improve myself as a person and as a worker.And I believe it will greatly help uplift my career.

But still It's my desire and passion to work for Mr. Lito Sy ( LITO SY STUDIO ). He's a great man and I'm always thankful to have him as my mentor. So now, there are slight changes.My work schedule on MWF would be 10 am -4 pm...student mode from 5pm to 9pm. TTH my class will start at 6 pm and end at 9 pm.

What about photoshoot session? I'm gonna miss it. Sad to say it's kind of consequence. From first and last working hours, i'll be more focused on my wedding album designs..Still finding the license time to shoot.But then, I'm still at the studio. No worries I guess...I really hope that I can serve you guys well...

But saturday night is open. I guess that would be the best time for me to do photoshoots for " PASSION FOR FASHION " reasons....

So no worries for my ever loyal studio clients...YOU KNOW WHO U ARE...( MARAMI KAYO ) ...I'm still here, I'm not resigning nor leaving the studio...

I just did these adjustment for myself....for my future...for YOU...

May God bless and support me always...
