How can I keep from singing

I woke up today to attend my online class for my MSN (Master of Science in Nursing) Group Dynamics from 8 am til 10 am. I mixed my Soygreen in a water container and drank it. Then I attended zoom. Our group reported for today and we discussed about verbal, non verbal communication and levels of communication. Our group finished reporting early today. So, our professor doc Mikee Aggari let us leave zoom earlier than 10 am, to prepare for the next class.

Then, at 10 am, I attended class with my classmates for Research and Statistics with Doc Rudy Borromeo. he discussed about the hypothesis on research, and some of my classmates presented on their thesis’ statement of the problem. Thank you God for giving me the strength to attend class.

After the class, I’ve read some devotionals. Then, I sang today for the first time the song with the creator of the song having the code numbers of 4.7.6. in a song app, “How can I keep from singing” by Chris Tomlin.

"How Can I Keep From Singing"

There is an endless song
Echoes in my soul
I hear the music ring

And though the storms may come
I am holding on
To the rock I cling

How can I keep from singing Your praise
How can I ever say enough
How amazing is Your love
How can I keep from shouting Your name
I know I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart want to sing

I will lift my eyes
In the darkest night
For I know my Savior lives

And I will walk with You
Knowing You'll see me through
And sing the songs You give

I can sing in the troubled times
Sing when I win
I can sing when I lose my step
And fall down again
I can sing 'cause You pick me up
Sing 'cause You're there
I can sing 'cause You hear me, Lord
When I call to You in prayer
I can sing with my last breath
Sing for I know
That I'll sing with the angels
And the saints around the throne

After singing, I had my two water jag containers refilled from the Mansion water store and I ate today a chicken shawarma that I liked and a 2 piece shanghai with rice at Piy Margal Street. Then, I went to Bambang to buy a box of face mask via tricycle with a fare of about P50.00. After that, I decided to just walk from Bambang up to where I stay.

I realized that Bambang is not that far pala. I should have walked towards it na lang. But it’s okay.

Then, I went to the water store to ask their boy to lift my two heavy water container jugs at my room’s outside door of the third floor. Then, I lifted them both inside my room. Then, I read few devotionals again from Nicky Gumbel’s 365 day whole bible for one year. What struck me today from day 143 is this verse:

Praise be to God,

    who has not rejected my prayer

    or withheld his love from me!

Psalm 66:20

The verse above is one of the best verses that reminded me of God’s love for me today. Thank You Lord.

Sometimes, we tend to get so disturbed of our challenges in life, forgetting how good our great God is. Sometimes, we tend to listen to the lies of the enemy but reading God’s word will remind us that God is still sovereign above everything.

I am created to worship the Lord, my Creator, my God. So, how can I keep from singing Your praise, Lord.

Bless the Lord oh my soul. I feel so elated today. God is so good.

Good night. God bless my readers. 🙂


Hyperventilation is rapid or deep breathing, usually caused by anxiety or panic. This overbreathing, as it is sometimes called, may actually leave you feeling breathless. When you breathe, you inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.

The normal Respiratory Rate (RR) is 12 – 20 cpm.

In a worse case scenario, hyperventilation may result in to a Respiratory alkalosis which occurs when you breathe too fast or too deep and carbon dioxide levels drop too low. This causes the pH of the blood to rise and become too alkaline.

Blood pH: 7.35-7.45

Blood is normally slightly basic, with a normal pH range of 7.35 to 7.45. Usually the body maintains the pH of blood close to 7.40.

ROME: Respiratory= Opposite: · pH is high, PCO2 is down (Alkalosis). pH is low, PCO2 is up (Acidosis). Metabolic= Equal: · pH is high, HCO3 is high (Alkalosis). pH is low, HCO3 is low (Acidosis). [ACID BASE BALANCE]

Scene at the ER: The other day, I had a patient in the ER, she is a teenager, running for honors. Ma’am Michiku the nurse assistant assessed her vital signs. She was sent to the ER because she was hyperventilating and crying. She was given a brown bag to somehow control her breathing and to calm her down. Sir Jonathan secured the brown bag in her face with a micropore. There were no medications given, just the brown bag. She was in a high fowler’s position. Upon interview, I learned that she was making an assignment or project I think, and she was not able to finish it before the deadline, that’s why she hyperventilated. She was with her mother, a highschool teacher.

Within an hour she was feeling well already, her heart rate stabilized, and her respiratory rate became stable too. Then she was discharged.

When I was younger, I did not ask my parents to send me to a hospital for the reason that I was not able to finish an assignment. I do things and submit them on time. However, when I grew a little older, I somehow wished I can also tell my professor in grad school that I am not feeling well, so I cannot join the class. I am planning not to enter zoom class tomorrow. Haha. Because, I haven’t finished my introduction yet for my thesis.

But, I realized that to be given a responsibility to finish a requirement is inevitable. I need to finish this already.

I was wondering if I should pursue my thesis on Covid 19.

My title is “Looking beyond the lens of caring for Covid 19 patients: a phenomenological study”

Sounds scholarly. It’s a qualitative study. hehe. Kaya ko ba ito? hahahuhu.
