Another day

Another day! I had so much fun yesterday when I got home. I dropped by at the market and bought some for dinner. Yahoooooo I had some shrimps for Sinigang. So usual routine, prepare for dinner, study moments with my kids but I was laughing out loud with Jet. He has nothing for homework so he said "Mama I am much good than my teacher. She didn't gave us any homework so I will be the one to make my own homework." hahaha funny Jet! I asked him what do you have in school today? He said nothing they just sang a song which is my cousin says so also when he picked up Jet from school. With three other classmates they were singing happily.

After we had dinner, it's bed time for them and so a nap time for me before going to work. We prayed together and brings so much joy in my heart hearing their prayers. After we prayed, Rj asked me. "Mama, if I pray to Jesus and ask something will He give it really if I'll be a good boy?" I said yes as my eyes were dropping already ready to go to sleep. I heard him pray, he was asking for a game boy. It made me smile. He was asking that long ago and his birthday is near already. I explained to Rj. I said to him that not everything you want Jesus will give you. Only those that are really important. Do you think that Jesus would give you a game boy since you're still a little boy and you should be studying more rather than playing a game boy? He said he would just play on weekends. Well, I just smiled again.

My kids are growing and happy to see them learning so much. Much more challenges for me in bringing them up. But to God be the glory they will always be my angels. Praise God!

Happy Birthday to My Mom

It is my mom's birthday. Praise God for another gift of life. Well, it's hard to imagine that things has to change. Last year I was there at my mom's birthday. It maybe lonely to think that we're not there now to celebrate a year of prosperity for my mom. But it is enough for me to know that it is a joyous celebration for her to enjoy most. I am happy for that and so thankful. I am looking forward for more meaningful life for my mom. Though there were so many times that me and my mom argue a lot. For me it is my means of being attached to her. But then she doesn't know that she is a great mom to me and a grandma to my angels. I even miss her so much. So much words to say, but in God's time and for the purpose to glorify Him, things will work out right for us all specially for my mom. I thank God and praise Him for all the good things He has given to my mom.

For my mom, a healthy, prosperous and bountiful living is my wish for her on her most special day. Happy birthday mads!!! ^_^ God bless and bless God. You're a great mom to top it all...

The Great Divide

(Scott Stapp)

I have run to the ocean
Through the Horizon
Chased the sun
I’ve waited for the light to come,
And at times I would give up
You have
Wrapped your loving arms ‘round me,
And with your love I’ll overcome.
You have
Loved me when I was weak,
You have
Given unselfishly,
Kept me from Falling…Falling
Everywhere but my Knees!

You set me free!
To live my life
You became my reason to survive the great divide
You set me Free!

I’ve been on Heaven’s doorstep,
With the Door open,
One foot inside
I’ve cried out…God give me answers!
Please hush child I’ll tell you why
You have
Loved me when you were weak,
You kept
Giving unselfishly,
Kept you from
Everywhere but your Knees!

You set me free!
To live my life
You became my reason to survive the great divide
You set me free!

Oh…our love is beautiful
Oh…oo…oh…Isn’t it beautiful?
Times have changed
But you remain
My everything
Our Love is Beautiful
Stood by my side
Helped me survive
My great Divide
Isn’t this is beautiful.

You set me free!
To live my life
You became my reason to survive the great divide
You set me free!

Leader-Moms Build Better Dads

father-daughter.jpgWhen my daughter was in kindergarten, she headed off to school one morning with her hair done up in an arrangement that only vaguely resembled a braid. Actually, at the top it looked almost exactly like a braid. But the hairstyle quickly devolved into a loose semi-tangle with an odd dogleg, like a fairway at Augusta National.

The following morning Jessi asked me to please just put her hair in two pony tails. That was the same week I sent her to school wearing orange socks, which didn’t fully complement her pink outfit.

Things were different when my wife, Jeanette, was in town—which was most of the time.

When Mom was home our daughter was a kindergarten fashion plate. But when Jeanette traveled on business, the goals shifted a bit. Once the alarm went off I started checking items off a mental to-do list. Feed Jessi a hearty breakfast, dress her in clean clothes, get the tangles out of her hair, and deliver her to school on time. If she arrived ahead of the bell with all the things she needed inside her little backpack, and started the day with a hug and kiss from me, I considered our morning a red-letter success.

During Jeanette’s business trips, Jessi and I tended to devote more time to riding bikes in the neighborhood, going to the playground, and playing Pooh sticks at the footbridge on the way to the library. Our dietary habits also underwent a transformation. We ate mostly mac and cheese, spaghetti, scrambled eggs, and frozen things that could be microwaved in eight minutes or less. Jessi thought it was great, since she liked fish sticks, pot pies, and chicken bits. She was less enthusiastic about the peas I served, but she ate them like a trooper. It didn’t take my daugther long to realize her parents did things differently, but each of us got the job done.

I found that as Jessi grew older she trusted me to be there for her, and she knew we could talk about anything. Friendship, faith, politics, boys, school, family, sex, God, future plans, anything. While Jessi and I were bonding at home, Jeanette looked forward to the change of pace made possible by occasional business trips, and she enjoyed the expanded opportunities to make use of her leadership and organizational abilities.

A few weeks ago Jessi completed her first year of college, and next week she will leave for Uganda to work with AIDS orphans and to assist an African pastor who ministers in a remote village. She turned out all right, in spite of having had a fashion-impaired dad. And I can’t begin to tell you how much I miss her when she’s away at college or out of the country.

If you sometimes feel guilty about using your skills outside the home because you fear you are neglecting your kids, think about this: Inflicting your husband on your children every now and then could be one of the best things you’ll ever do for them. It’s a bona fide familial adventure, a crash course in deepening the dad-offspring bond. Plus, after just a few of these dad-on-duty episodes, your kids will more fully appreciate what you bring to the table. Nothing says “when will Mom be home?” like a dad who can’t manage a French braid or decide whether orange goes with pink.

When you invest your leadership abilities in the world outside your home you are making greater use of the gifts God gave you. More people have a chance to benefit from the ways God is using you. And in the process, you’re building a better dad.

A grudge is a heavy to thing to carry

Ephesians 4:26-27 (NIV)
26"In your anger do not sin"Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27and do not give the devil a foothold.

Ephesians 4:26-27 (The Message)
26-27Go ahead and be angry. You do well to be angry—but don't use your anger as fuel for revenge.And don't stay angry. Don't go to bed angry. Don't give the Devil that kind of foothold in your life.

For someone, forgiving is the most hardest thing to do. I certainly agree to that. When someone is wrong over us, we can't easily forgive. Many days will past, several months or maybe it would take years before you learn to forgive. One thing I have learned, if you can't forgive, then it will become a grudge turned to be a burden. You can't have peace if you hated someone.

You may say I am out of my mind saying all this things about hatred and forgiveness coz even I myself was living in anger before. But I found it out that you have to die for yourself to change your priority in life. And this is now a new beginning for me. Learning to forgive easily as what is written in the scripture that anger is a foothold you can give the devil. So it is now your choice if you want the devil to have an easy access on you.

Hard to point this out....

"The worst pain in life is when someone you know turns into someone you knew."

This does makes sense. Exactly I agree to the above statement that mostly when you know someone at the end you only found it out that you knew them.
It is like all the happiness and excitement are always found at the beginning of aquaintance. Unfortunately for those whose intentions were not for real, getting to know each other becomes useless. And comes to the point of the other party, this causes disappoinment and frustrations. You expect to know him/her better but then it is just what is it. It ends up that you only knew that someone. Meaning, it has become a part of your past or history that you happen to know this someone. Only that, you know them that at the end you just knew them for instances that you will no longer had the chance for more aquaintace. Just like they come and go...

POSO (Indonesia)

(This video contains scene not suitable for young viewers.)

actually seen this video from one of my friend's comment list in friendster. It came up to an idea or lets say a point of view from me came out for the reason that I had one friend this morning, and was asking why does he need to exist in this world. I said, you should know the purpose of your existence. You need know your priorities in life and how and what are your focuses for it. It makes him confuse but thankful indeed that finally someone has brought him out of his confusion and those words I gave him enlightened him.

So what does all this things is all about why I have to show you the video I posted for this blog? Actually, we all know that in life there is so much struggles and challenges. You need to take a risk if you wanted to achieve something and made an accomplishment. It is so complicated. But when I first saw this video, I said to myself where in this world could this incident happened that their world is so cruel. So many innocent people lost their lives because of such cruelness. Gosh! I said so, why is it that I complain so much in life that why I have this burdens, this circumstance, this struggles??? Which is if you saw the video, that kind of living is the worst! Lucky me! No it isn't. Luck is different from blessings. So blessed I am that I am not into their kind of living.

If you think of, financial matters sums up all your problems and concerns in life. I can learn from this situation that it isn't. It is what kind of lifestyle you are living for, in considering the environment and surroundings you moved in. So I understand now that the very purpose of your existence is life, is to live in reality not to show any weakness of death of something that you have. We can't even complain and blame God if someone dies and we said that God has taken him/her already. No it isn't 'coz God creates life. He brings life from death. So life is not a matter of death. We live because there is a purpose for us live for which is we have missions and visions to accomplish.

For me, I take circumstances in life as a challenge that it seems to be life has no meaning at all if you don't have any struggles. Through consequences in life, it helps us become more lenient, responsible, tough and positive. As I always live to a principle and God's word indeed that no matter what, we always have to be cheerful and prayerful. Through it, it has become your weapons to stand firm in life at all times of great storm and even famine of having nothing at all.

Take it easy, meditate on the message of what does this video shows. Shalom! BLess God readers.

Sunny side up for dinner

Exhuasted, wasted whatever it is!!! I got home yesterday hmmmmm 8pm??? ^_^ got a lot of stuff done at the office. I had 2hrs sleep only but it's nothing. Paid off with happiness already.

It is past 6pm. Traveling the road of Makatai Ave., wheeewww traffic jam again. Getting into the train, the line for the ticket booth makes me lurky as I am so disturb of the time. I hated it now to see my watch if what time is it already while thinking how many hours could it be that I could have for a sleep.

I got home, got little bit pissed off finding it out nothing is in the kitchen for dinner. My gosh!!! My kids didn't have their dinner yet and they are roaming around the garage playing hide and sick. When I open the fridge, waaaallaaahhhh!!! At least I am cooled down with my temper. Yehey I had one egg for dinner... hehehe

While having my dinner, sunny side up!!! breakfast at night. Well that's life working on a graveyard shift... hehehe Jet sits beside me, staring at me, and told me that "Ma, you look so beautiful!" hahaha I feel like I'm gonna fall on my chair. But deep inside I wanna believe 'coz kids don'y lie, right? I asked him back, why u say so Jet, "It is because Ma I love you! " wooaaaaa I am so touched. Those words swept away all the burdens I am carrying that night.

Seeing my kids grown up, I appreciate more their presence. Truly they are angels in my life. They are my life, they made me complete.

Check out my friend's blog...

I had fun yesterday...

Looking fresh??? hehehe well, as my usual routine during my off at work I jogged around the corner of our village.

I had fun this day, went out for a jogged with my son Rj. Laughing out loud 'coz Rj
has to go along with me and he has to run just to get over me. He just gave a big sigh.

While on the road, my mind is some what on a thinking of I can't imagine myself I am here with this little boy with so much questions and I am having a hard to time breathe answering those endless questions why this why that. He just gave me a reason to smile.

There, we found neighbors spending their leisure time on the road and all I can see is their smiles on their face because Rj is with me. Well, next time I'll bring Jet with me.

What is Happyness really is?

I had seen this movie sometime last April. I have once took a glance of this movie from a billboard somewhere in Edsa. But it didn't gave me an interest. 'Till one day, I got home so late from work. Actually just went home to get some stuff and get dressed, and at that moment my brother was watching some DVD movies and yeah, this movie was played next. I just don't know something is dragging me to lay down on the floor (since we don't have a couch ^_^) and have myself relax and said, I guess I still have enough time to watch this movie before my next shift starts. Much to my surprise this movie brought me in so much learning and inspiration in life. It had reminded me of all the hardships I had went through all my life. I said to myself, what does this person had that he was so persistent in everything that is going on in his life.
Justify Full
Will Smith as Chris Garner to be the main character of the story went into bankruptcy, so broke, lost his job, he was left by his wife with his son to live with him and I guess he has all this things so hard to deal with. But at the end of the story it is like a fairy tale that he become a victor of all circumstances. There were scenes from this movie clips that had touched my heart so much that I almost cried. Like he and his son has to sleep inside the bathroom of a train station because they lost their home, had a night over a place where homeless American people stay overnight, that for them to be able to had a chance of luck, they had to be early in falling in line to get into that place. I give a sigh, how hard life is for them.

I had this part of the movie that anyone could let them aspire big dreams possible to reach. The script goes " Don't let ever somebody else tell you, you can't do something, not even me. alright! You got a dream, you gonna protect it. People can't do something themselves, they wanna tell, you can't do it. You want something, go get it."

The thing that motivates me from this movie is that Chris, being so persistent in everything just to get what he wants, optimistic, dreamer, and positive all the time. After I read a book You Can Be Rich and You Can Succeed by David King, the book and the movie made a connection. That success isn't all about financial matter but being happy of having satisfaction of everything in life. Nice car, house, career, good relationship to anyone else, financial freedom, it sums up happiness and that is what Pursuit of Happiness is - to sacrifice something good for something even better (You Can Be Rich by David King).

See for yourself guyz, it is not a waste of time. It will somehow change your concept in dealing circumstances in life and win the game of luck. Happy viewing, pray and desire for wisdom that you may get something from this movie that in you real living will apply learnings to become successful.

"Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live. 1 Thesalonians 5:16-18"

Just a word...

waaaaaaaaaalaaahhhh!!! new with blogs??? hhhmmmmm Just an add up to my cuz hunee, I found it out making blogs as an interesting past time for me. Rather than doing the usual things in the net, chatting nonsense issues for some reasons, endless browsing of anything that would just satisfy oneself. For some, reading blogs might be boring or disinteresting. But for me, every time I visited or view someone's profile in friendster, an eye catching profile is those with blogs posted. I can sense someone's character by reading their blogs and it is so much fun for me reading their blogs. I gave comments but for them, it's nothing. Well, funny isn't it? Because what for that they had their blogs posted but then they don't mind the comments they have of their blogs.

For me, please have your comments for my blogs. It's a pleasure and would appreciate it if I have your comments specially if you found some clerical, grammar error, let me know at once. It will be fun and exciting exchanging ideas, opinions and interests through this medium. Hope to hear you from you soon guyz!!! We will learn a lot from this. Shalom!

A glimpse of thoughts

Thought of words unspoken,
Unrevealed circumstances
Into lurking for reality of acceptance...

Raining in my head,
Are memories of confusion

Which couldn't be said If it is right or wrong...

Delved into darkness

Where light is found nowhere,

In mystery, tried to find the answer.

Into the air I breath,
I longed to whisper life...

But found myself in reflection of expectation,

Searching of something I don't know...

'Till chances came to offer,
Revealing the reality for eternal bliss

That I once had lost it for nothing.
You now found me in isolation
And bring me back my lost soul,

That much of it,

No if's, no but's

You that is called my life...

My everything...

Through the years

Wheeeewwww... As I am looking infront of the mirror, I couldn't help imagine myself but staring deeply on my reflection, saying to myself... huh??? It seems I am looking more prettier everyday... hehehe hmmmmmmm Isn't it Sugar??? (I asked myself with a grin in the face..)

Life has brought me into reality of acceptance. That each passing days is filled with a lot of mysteries I am dealing with along the way of the journey of so called LIFE...

There I saw a different me, a new born, completely diverted person!
My past years had taught me of being more independently strong willed person. I learned a lot from certain issues in dealing with circumstances. I was broken down into pieces and Praise God that I am now been back to become whole again.

I sometimes think that it was so unfair having all the hardships in life and to carry burdens by myself alone. But God is so great. I knew it that in Him nothing is impossible. He has given us direction that we only need to do is walk through it and live by faith. Truly He is awesome that if all the things we do is to glorify Him and bless His name, He will bless you of great abundance in life. It may not be for financial matters, but of the people that surrounds you, giving you sense of empathy and concerns. That is how then I learn to value other's time and effort and has help me become more sensitive of other's need.

Some might misinterpreted my intentions in life. But fool are those who doesn't know the real inside of me. It may brought pain and hurts. But now as I continue to move on in life, it has no longer space in me for as the strength that God has given me, it has enlightened my world through His glory that shines upon me. Knowing that my purpose in life is for His Kingdom establishment.

To God be the glory... Bless God
