TT: Contentment

It is by mere truth that good life is not measured by our material possession but it is justified by our impact to other people...

This Christmas season let me share with you the First Christmas, the day when Jesus was born...



Hristmas is a special time. It is a family celebration. It is glorified in the home because it is the celebration of a birthday.
            Christmas means different things to different people. Many are more concerned to hear about their PROFIT from Christmas than to hear about the PROPHET from Bethlehem.
            Those who celebrate without CHRIST in their lives write “Merry X-mas”- signifying an unknown God.
            Instead of imbibing (absorb into mind) the spirit of Christmas, they chose to imbibe (drink) spirits of Christmas.
            We can’t  have a Merry Christmas or a happy new year when we have become slaves to the passions and vices that hound us-materialism, money, and artificial pleasure. They are crowding CHRIST out of Christmas.
            Three Phenomena the world experienced more than 2000 years ago:
First: The Star- the light that points us to the real Light but sad to say that we focused our eyes o the stars and not on the True Light born in Bethlehem (Matthew 2:2)
Second:  The New Song- The whole world took up a new refrain “Glory to God in the Highest and on Earth peace, goodwill toward men.” (Luke 2: 13-14). But people prefer to hear other songs, sad songs, cynical songs, angry songs, songs worshipping Satan and other things.
Third:  The Good News- The Savior has come “He shall be called Jesus for He shall save His people from sins (Matthew 1:21)
          Jesus was the central theme of that first Christmas. The star, the song, the gifts, the joy, the hope and the excitement- all were because of Him.
            Do you know who put the first Christmas tree? God did it on Calvary. On this tree hung the world’s greatest love gift- His Son.
            He chose to hang His greatest love gift on a tree because Satan using a tree deceived our first parents. He restores men with a tree (cross)
            There were no pretty lights on that  tree- but light was there- because the source of light hung on that tree (John 1: 4,9/ 8:12), (Luke 23:44-45)
          Wrapping on this wonderful gift was His own precious blood.
            We had a spiritual disease, which is called sin. JESUS CHRIST had a great deal to say about sin. He came on that first Christmas night to save His people from their sins. Only Jesus can heal the disease of sin.
            Christmas is not a Christmas without a message on the death and resurrection of CHRIST. This is why He was born.
            Christmas still reminds us that God is with us.
            So when you look at the Christmas tree think of the first Christmas tree.
Color red stands for His precious blood He shed for you
Color crystal for the precious water of life
Color silver and gold reminds you that we were not redeemed with corruptible things, but His precious blood. Remember Jesus was sold for 30 pieces of silver, just for His redeemed ones (us) to walk on streets of pure gold (heaven).
Color green points us to the tree of life where our names are written.
            The Christmas message has not changed after 2000 years.
            God revealed in that life, death and resurrection of Jesus a reconciling love which rescues us from separation and loneliness. Christ is here to give us hope, to forgive sins, and to give us a new song, to impart faith and to heal our spiritual wounds if only we will let Him. Give Him the gift that HE wants- your heart, your soul and your life.

Light came, with one faint star
To show the way;
With one small cry, the Word
Lay speechless in the hay;
Love came and was rejected
At the inn;
Purity was born into the world of sin;
Song woke to the barnyard cluck
And bray and bleat;
And common shepherd knelt
At Sovereignty’s feet.

If you have nothing to give this Christmas, worry not because Christmas is not about gifts.... It's about having the right attitude of understanding the significance of the season...
God bless

Our Almighty Father, the Greatest Lover

God's love for us is beyond compare! It is unfathomable, immeasurable and never ceases! Life without Him is senseless... Knowing Him is NEVER enough... We need to ACKNOWLEDGE Him into our lives and allow Him to have a total control of it! God's love endures forever that we couldn't ask for more! His undying love is clearly written on the Holy Book- the BIBLE, our Life's ultimate manual... The question now is that- Are We Willing To Love Him Back?

Christmas Reminders...

It's Monday and the atmosphere here at school is really at peace.... (it's Holiday break by the way).. Unlike the other year, I need to report for work until the 23rd and resume at the 26th to 29th.... Christmas is indeed few days away! I never bothered myself to buy a gifts (unlike again last year) I just want to feel the real meaning of Christmas... it's not about the gifts we give and receive, nor parties... I need to remind myself (as well as those who were expecting) that Christmas is all about giving thanks and adoration to the One whom God has sent to us more than 2,000 years ago... It's about Jesus Christ.. and we are all the reason why He came and gave His life to us... It all started in Bethlehem long long time ago when a Child was born in the manger... A very humble scene and event yet the most significant of all!

Feel the real spirit of Christmas!

A Toast for Manang Maris and Manong Jim

Love moves in a very mysterious ways... Who would have thought that my dear Manang Maris would settle down this fast? lol! I would like to give a toast for Manong Jim who was able to conquer Manang's (wooden?) heart! :) God knows, its the right time for them to really settle down and indeed they're perfect match. I know for sure that Manong will love Manang soooooooooo much and same thing with my quite unpredictable but loving Manang. I'm so glad and honored to become a part of the most memorable moments of their lives being united as one... To those whom God has bind together, let NO man separate! A toast for the newly wed couple!

Quickly, she charms the hearts of the household staff and even the seemingly cold-hearted Warbucks cannot help but learn to love this wonderful girl. He decides to help Annie find her long lost parents by offering a reward if they would come to him and prove their identity. However, Miss Hannigan, her evil brother, Rooster, and a female accomplice, plan to impersonate those people to get the reward for themselves which put Annie in great danger.
I watched this movie way back on my elementary years and it's really a very good movie...
Watch it!

My Early Gift for Christmas!

I came home a little bit late from school last night and I was really so tired and hungry. When I arrived, Tatay told me that I had a package through LBC from Johnson's. Iwas really surprised and amazed as well because I thought it will take too long to arrive! I first learned their promo through Bogie on Bogie's Wonderland when she posted it. The body lotion I got from them were in a very cute bottles of 25ml! I really love its smell and the softness to my skin when I tried it! Why not try so you'll receive it right at your doorstep for FREE!! all you have to do is simply visit Johnson's Body Care and be a part of it! In less than 2 weeks you can have it! Share the softness!

I Just Love This...

Mymp - Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now lyrics |
Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
This world that I found is too good to be true
Standing here beside you, want so much to give you
This love in my heart that I'm feeling for you

Let 'em say we're crazy, don't care 'bout that
Put your hand in my hand baby, don't ever look back
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby, we can make it if we're heart to heart

And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers, we'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now
Woh woh oh

I'm so glad I found you, I'm not gonna lose you
Whatever it takes, I will stay here with you
Take it to the good times, see it through the bad times
Whatever it takes is what I'm gonna do

Let 'em say we're crazy, what do they know
Put your arms around me baby, don't ever let go
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby, we can make it if we're heart to heart

And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers, we'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us

Ooh, all that I need is you
All that I ever need
And all that I want to do
Is hold you forever, forever and ever

And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers, we'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us
Woh oh oh-oh-oh
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now
Hey baby

And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers, we'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now

TT: Compassion

Yes indeed! It's not enough to feel it, we must do something to justify that compassion we have for OTHERS... I was really very thankful of the message God brought to us through our Elder on our church last night during our mid-week fellowship. The given account on the bible was about the Good Samaritan. It's another reminder for us that sometimes in our lives we could be like the man lying helplessly on the streets being robbed, wounded and almost dying. We might have  experienced the lowliest moment in our lives where nobody else seems to care about us. Unexpectedly, God uses people whom we least expected. Just like the Good Samaritan who shows real compassion to his "enemy" (being a non-Jewish). Real friends can only be known in time of adversities in our lives. People whom we expect to uplift us  might be the same people who will abandon us when we need them the most (just like the priest and Levites on the parable). Let's stop living in hypocrisy... Compassion... it's not just a mere feelings... It's something that needs to be act upon.

Music for Life

Music has already been a part of me since my younger years. I may not have my own album but I have my own composition! In fact I love to write a song, that’s one of my passions aside from art. I love that soulful type of music. If I’ll be given an option on what to bring if I’ll be deserted in an island, definitely it would be my mp3 player loaded with my favorite songs. Wow, undeniably I can live alone with music. I am not into rap or noisy type of music, they are just a plain sound for me, and apparently I don’t consider it as music at all. Number one on my play lists are those songs that somehow can inspire me to go on with my life no matter what. I love gospel songs or those that are inspirational. I love my collections from Hillsongs Australia, they are not only uplifting but soul soothing as well. Whenever I hear any of their songs, I am always reminded of how faithful and loving our God is to us despite all our shortcomings. I always see to it that I have a copy of the lyrics of their songs. Of course, I’m not bothered because the internet is always of help to me on my research. It’s not difficult to find a particular song or a lyric with the help of so many search engines and one of this is the Queen Torrent search engine. Like any other search engines, we’ll just simply type the keywords such as music torrents and there you go with the results. Or if you want it to be more specific you may type Hillsong Austrailia and you will be prompted with so many downloadable options that you can choose.

 I am not updated to the latest track because most of them don’t make sense at all. I just don’t know what comes onto their mind why they opt to produce songs that has no meaning and will not create even just a little impact to the society; well that’s their freedom of expression. As for me, music will continue to inspire me as long as I live.

First Time Ever...

Whenever we received favors and blessings from God we ought to give Him thanks... Well, actually we ought to give Him thanks at all times (in every circumstances) so, how much more for the good things that happened in our life? Today, the Cagayan de Oro City, (where I proudly belong) held it's First Thanksgiving Celebration! Wow, the event was graced by Ms. Ma. Teresa Magdalena A. Llamedo-Cruz or better known as  Dulce who sang the popular jukebox hit  "Ako ang Nagwagi" and Mr. Jun Polistico, a comeback from Las Vegas who popularized his original single "Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas", both a renowned artists performing on the other countries but decided to spend time here in the Philippines to boldly proclaimed and share the goodness that God has given into their lives! These two performer are really amazing, indeed they are total performer! I loved Dulce upon knowing her true identity, she's an epitome of faith and peace. For my fellow Kagay-anons, let us all be an advocate of peace! Thanks to those who supported this city ordinance, not to mention the co-author, our very peace-loving Bishop, Rev. Genesis "Bong" Udang. God bless us all!

TT: Trust

Trust is something that is so difficult to build yet will likely take  seconds to destroy. Maybe for some people, but definitely not for God.  The recent flood that occurred on the city lately was really quite devastating. There were casualties being reported while others were forced to leave their homes. I could hardly sleep last night because I was really disturbed by the heavy downpour. I was so worried about the condition of our office, I can imagine files being drowned, tables overturned, equipment soaked and muddy floors. That was really a horrible night for me upon entertaining all those negative thoughts. I HAVE BEEN PRAYING, in fact I was really crying before God, desperately begging Him to hear my prayer. I prayed for the rain to stop, but it didn't. I then started to question my trust on Him. How could He shut His ears from me? What have I done that He cannot say YES to my prayer. All I know was that, God answers prayers in three different ways, YES, NO (for a very valid reason) and WAIT. I can't take NO for an answer nor a WAIT considering the worst condition. The rain did not stop until morning but  the water at the school did did not subside yet so still we were stranded. I know I have no right to question HIM and I know that He allow things to happen for a reason. After that night I felt so ashamed before God, for questioning Him. I should be thankful instead that He spared my family from any untoward incidents other than flood that reached on the floor level of my brother's house. I should be thankful instead that the flood was nothing compared to what happened at Northern Luzon last month. Sometimes, we are too self-centered that if we felt God is not listening to us, our faith and trust on Him waivers. I felt so bad about myself because of that. Good thing our God is a God of Mercy. Thanks be unto Him forever.

Wednesday, November 25, 2009


For those who were affected by the flood, may this verse would remind us of God's unfailing love.

MYM: FJ Logo

This was the logo I created for Femmes for Jesus, one of the organizations on our church composed of all the women who are still single. The background is not included, its only the heart and the figure within it. The fJ initials stands for the name of the organization. The silhouette embodied the women of the new generation who are God-fearing whom the truth foundation is the Living Word (the one in yellow). Actually there was a slight modification on the actual but basically, same thoughts were carried. This is my MYM for today! God bless everyone :)

7CC/ FPF- Endangered Memorabilia?

Wow, I've been keeping this pic for long and have it pasted on my scrap book but unfortunately, when the flood came (earlier this year) this was among those things that were soak on the water, too bad. I left my scrapbook on top of my table but still the flood water was too high that it reached above it... Anyway at least the damage was not that much. I was still able to save this rare memorabilia. Why rare? These are my parents on their wedding day, the only pic that was left so far. Their marriage never lasted for long...:(  Or maybe, they're  just not really meant for each other.  The picture itself seems to  prove the reality that they are not happy?  I can see no hint from their faces. I chose to feature this for Friday Photo Flashback and to Seven Clown Circus so that I can preserve this almost torn, almost lost picture of the two people whom I owe my life with despite the fact that they do not have a successful marriage. They said, what the Lord has bind together, let no man separate- I wish it will always be the case. But this is beyond my control, it happened already. I'll just hope and pray to God earnestly that this will not happen to me nor to my other siblings. After all, God predestined us even before we are born and I do firmly believe that everything happens for a reason even if it is beyond our comprehension. As for me, God has a wonderful and perfect  plan a way too far different from my parents... Something that I will look forward to. Amen!

Maximizing The Value Of Your Real Estate Investment

Owning real properties nowadays may cost a lot. How much more with developing and generating money out from it? Sometimes we might be too preoccupied of other things that we just can’t manage our properties by our own. Entrusting it to an unreliable management company might as well put our investment at risk, now, nobody wants that to happen or are you?  But that's no longer an issue at Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio and Northern Kentucky. Real Property Management (RPM) Midwest did it for them. RPM is their premier real estate management company. It manages commercial and residential properties. As a matter of fact, with their very good performance they received "Franchise of the Year, Honorable Mention" award. They are the fastest growing property management company in the country. They help owners rent their places quickly, they collect the rent; inspect the properties 3 times per year to ensure that the tenants are taking care of the property. They also cover the cost of any eviction (if necessary). Indeed, investing real estate properties and have it manages by Real Property Management promises a good Return of Investment. Many businessmen have tried their services already. Among their services includes but not limited to: Tenant Placement; Affordable Management fees with NO Leasing fees; Credit and Multi-State Criminal Background Screening; Regular Property Inspections; Accounting; Project Management; Monthly Financial Reporting to Owners available online 24/7; Maintenance Services; Collections; Evictions/Legal. Isn’t it a worth it investment? We just can’t allow our properties to be mismanaged and all that. Putting our investment to risk is just like putting our money to waste bins. A company like RPM does not only help the property owners get their business rolling, they also ensure a quality services. So why compromise when you can be assured of their promising offers that is worth the price and worth the time and effort.
If any investor here in the Philippines will do the same strategy as the RPM did, it will surely hit. Many real Estate owners will really enjoy its services for this kind of management.

TT: Strength

 The level of our physical strength depends upon the kind of loads (physically) that we carry... How about the level of our emotional and spiritual strength? Those are the kinds of strength that cannot be measured by our physical prowess. Maintaining a strong and balance emotion is quite an effort. When we are face with great challenges, it is through emotional and spiritual strength that we can overcome the impossible. Of course that strength shall come from God alone, because apart from Him we can do nothing! I'm so thankful to God for giving me enough strength to fulfill my task this week- a kind of task that if done carelessly may cause a force eviction of myself  from Big Brother's house lol!

WFW: Soul Searching ?

Whatever is lacking in our lives right now, God is always there to fill it up. We just have to call upon His name... Whatever questions we have in our minds, instead of seeking the answer from the world, why not seek it from God. He is very much willing to give us the answer, if not now, then maybe later at His appointed time. Let's just keep our faith on Him.
Have a very awesome, blessed Wednesday everyone.

I Never Dreamed Someone Like You Could Love Someone Like Me

Well well well... Can you still remember this song? An old love song, yet I love it! Hope you like it too...



I've been drinking much coffee in a day. Ordinary (Instant) coffee is what I usually indulge. But there's one particular coffeehouse or coffeeshop that I have been where they serve a lot of varieties of coffee-hot and/or cold with assorted flavors. When I was in Manila together with my sister we treat ourselves at Starbucks Robinson Malate. Though you really have to spend quite a buck but its worth the price. I specially loved Coffee Frappucino Blended Coffee! Too bad there's no Starbucks here in Cagayan de Oro. I tried to browse their website  and I just learned that the coffee they are serving are not only loaded with unique blend but it has nutritional values as well!
