"So blessed, I can't contain it! So much, I've got to give it away!
                  - excerpt from the song One Day, Hillsong 

So much has happened during my weekend but none has more meaning than when we did ANCOP Global Walk. What is it?

The ANCOP Global Walk is an annual fundraising event of CFC ANCOP which aims to raise awareness and funds for Couple's for Christ's work with the poor programs, namely Community Development and the Child Sponsorship Program. These programs are geared towards providing shelter, education, basic health care and livelihood to those living in extreme poverty. The Walk happened in various provinces and cities in the Philippines, as well as key cities in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. (source here)

I loved the event because:

a) Being able to help for a good cause is always a nice thing
b) Couples for Christ
c) Getting my fat ass out of bed as early as 4am teaches me the value of fortitude (I am and will always be a night owl) 
d) The event say "Walk" not "Run"

Here are some pictures last Sunday. I am already looking forward to next year.

That's me there looking pregnant because of my fat belly and bad posture 

Sea of people doing the 'warm up'

Husband's running number
(It's not obvious we're excited noh? Out of the thousands who registered
for the event we were the 144th and 145th! Hehe)

A cute dog who also joined the cause


People who took the 'short-cut' jejejeje

Why it took me that long? 
What I did was more like a leisurely walk (think namamasyal sa mall).
In the eyes of God I know what's important is I finished.
Because life is not a sprint. It's a marathon. :)

Here's the full lyrics of the song One Day by Hillsong. 

More than I could hope or dream of
You have poured Your favour on me
One day in the house of God is
Better than a thousand days in the world

So blessed, I can't contain it...
So much, I've got to give it away,
Your love taught me to live now...
You are more than enough for me.

Lord, You're more than enough for me
Lord, You're more than enough for me

(PS: If you do not know this song, please google it now and listen to it. I promise it will make your day lighter and brighter.)
