A rendition of Oh Holy Night in saxophone. If you notice, the audio and video aren’t exactly in sync. I cannot figure out why during the editing. I also had to do several takes by the way.
Hope you guys have wonderful and meaningful Christmas this year. I also hope you enjoy the music.

Congratulations to Aquarela! Wow!
Mr. Big is currently touring. I can only hope they do it here in the Philippines. I will watch. Most of my few friends will watch too, I’m sure. I really hope to see them. Damn, that’d be good. Too good even. Hehehe.
I got into them back in highschool, around 6 years ago. We played a number of their songs. I brought the influence home, got my friends into them, and played more mr. big music. They’re just good. Pure and good.
If you they’re really coming here, I hope you could inform me.
Eagles – Joe Walsh’s song “One day at a time” reminds us to live just about how the song said it: One day at a time.
It’s a pop-rock song with a feel-good touch to it. Just saw the DVD playing back when I woke up yesterday and found the song good.
One day at a time
Well you know I was always the first to arrive at the party,
Oh…and the last to leave the scene of the crime.
Well it started with a couple of beers,
And it went I don’t know how many years,
Like a run away train heading for the end of the line.
Well I finally got around to admit that I might have a problem,
But I thought it was just too damn big of a mountain to climb,
Well I got down on my knees and said Hey,
I just can’t go on living this way,
Guess I have to learn to live my life one day at a time.
Oh yeah, One Day at a Time.
Oh yeah, One Day at a Time.
Well I finally got around to admit that I was the problem,
When I use to put the blame on everybody’s shoulders but mine,
All my friends I use to hang with are gone,
But I hadn’t planned on living this long,
Guess I’ll have to learn to live my life one day at a time,
It was something I was too blind to see,
I got help from something greater then me,
Now I have to learn to live my life one day at a time.

During the 1st Quarter of the year, God has proven (yet again!) how awesome He is. Oh no, I’m not talking “awesome” as a cliche here. If you’ve been financially provided without getting employed, getting into something you’re passionate about, getting an aunt miraculously healed and personally seeking Jesus in her heart, opening opportunities for business and more learning, and getting closer to Him — isn’t that awesome enough?
But throughout everything He’s brought me into, He made me feel alive again. He brought me to what makes me feel most alive. And that maybe, just maybe, I was designed to be something else than what I used to think of myself.
“I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.” – Eric Liddell
I’m sure Mr. Eric felt most alive when he ran. That was his design.
I’ve been getting serious into my music again after so many years. And God has blessed me with a mentor I never thought would have the same heart and passion to guide me through it. And this is my zone. I always knew it was, I just never took it this seriously.
I have decided to write about it because I want to trace back after 6 months to a year – have I gotten any better?
What about you? What do you do that you feel God’s pleasure? What makes you feel most alive? Do you ever strive to get better at it?
