Another weekly edition of Thankful Thursday and I'm so excited to share about the things which takes a lot of patience to fulfill... Perseverance is such a word that is easier said than done...Only those who persevere were able to fulfill the desires of their heart... Though it's hard to admit but this is one thing that I need to work out in my life... PERSEVERANCE! I'm still thankful that God is using a lot of people to remind me to grow up and build perseverance within me...
This week's episode for TCP is Supernatural... So I pick X-Men Movie... There's only one character that I really love-it's WOLVERINE played by Hugh Jackman...

My first time to join this meme... i tried to scan our old family album for a really retro pics but sad to say, I need to scan those pics first... So I opted for the pics that I uploaded on my pc a couple of months ago...this picture was taken last year with my grand Ma before their scheduled departure back to Bohol... I really love my lola and badly miss her!
As I watched this, I can't really help it but cry... Such a great video of a father's amazing love to his physically challenged son! Despite his heart condition he didn't refused to the request of his son to join in a triathlon... Wow! indeed this video is very heartwarming, uplifting and so inspiring... Just like this father whose willing to sacrifice everything for his dear son, our Almighty Father also did the same! More than we could imagine! No matter how unfaithful we could be, his faithfulness and love for us remains forever.. It's unconditional... it knows no end... it's simply amazing!How thankful i am to have such a loving Father whose heart never ceased to love me despite my shortcomings!

Wow! A first entry for this sponsored blog meme... This week's theme is about excitement and I just hope this will qualify to the category! :) This picture was taken during my sister's wedding! We're just so excited to take a supposedly wacky pose in front of the camera before the ceremony will start! Girls just wanna have fun!
I pick this movie (a remake)for this week's theme because this movie is really scary! I watched this more than once at home (we have an original DVD copy)... I could say that this is not suitable for children because of the effects and the story is quite brutal! But the plot of the story can explain why.. here's the synopsis: on the way through some dark and scary woods, something completely unexpected happens to a group of attractive college kids… their car breaks down. When they go to a nearby town for help, they are greeted with horror at the local tourist attraction, the House of Wax where some sadistic bastards have been killing people and encasing their bodies in wax...
While drafting this blog this afternoon, one word sprout into my mind: FAITH... the commonly used word in the bible... the usual word uttered by the hopeful Godly people... but quite misunderstood by some...For me, faith is such a powerful word,this is what holds me still right now... Because of faith I was able to stand firm in times of adversity... it is by faith that I still hold on to my dreams... it is through faith that I cling on when I felt like giving up... Even if I am quite tired of hoping...pondering...waiting...I must go on because I have this faith on HIM!Somehow I am very thankful to Him that despite my weaknesses, my shortcomings-I can still feel His loving kindness... Maybe I need to have a paradigm shift the way I think... Being positive even if the actual things that happened around me are negative... After all: Thy will be done!
I got hold of this very thick book (in paperback)by the Author Cornelia Funke. This is one of her best-selling children's novel that comes to vivid life on the big screen with this family-friendly tale about a bookbinder (portrayed by Brendan Fraser) whose storytelling skills possess the curious power to transport the characters he speaks about into the real world. When a nefarious villain from a bedtime story that the father is currently reading to his daughter emerges to kidnap the stunned storyteller, it's up to the young girl and her adventurous friends -- both real and imaginary -- to bring dad back home and close the book on the dreaded fiend once and for all. The characters are very weird even their names like Dustfinger, Fenoglio and Capricorn with their very distinctive portrayal... Got to love it... I wasn't able to finish reading the book but I'm still looking forward when I'm no longer busy...
While I was reading the updates of Pepeng via Yahoo News, my initial reaction was "OH NO, NOT AGAIN!" Most of our affected brethren in the Northern part were not able to recover yet from the tragedy brought by Ondoy... Here is the excerpt of the news: Signal No. 1 hoisted over 6 provinces
"Latest DOST-PAGASA MTSAT-EIR Satellite Image (timestamp on image is UTC; add 8 hours to convert to Philippine Standard Time)
MANILA - Weather bureau PAGASA on Thursday said typhoon Pepeng (international codename Parma) is forecast to bring more rains and very strong winds in Northern Luzon including Metro Manila once it makes landfall Saturday afternoon.
In a press conference Thursday afternoon, PAGASA said Pepeng has intensified further, now packing winds of 195 kilometers per hour near the center, and gusts of up to 230 kph.
As of 5 p.m., PAGASA weather branch chief Nathaniel Cruz said the typhoon was sighted 440 km east of Catarman, Northern Samar and is moving 24 kilometers per hour in the general direction of Northern Luzon and the Taiwan area..."
We cannot say that their predictions are accurate or not, let's just hope and pray hard that the intervening power of God will prevail... God moves in a very mysterious way...
I was reminded of God's unfathomable plans for all of us... Just this week alone we are all bombarded with bad news... We might not be affected with Typhoon Ondoy but the burdens of it no one is spared... Who can dare to just sit back and relax and do nothing to alleviate the situations of our suffering kababayans? We might not have everything, we might not be that influential but in our own little ways we can be a blessing...I always believe then that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON, BE IT GOOD OR BAD... It was further justified in the book of I Thessalonians 5:16-18 "Be joyful always; PRAY continually; GIVE THANKS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" Being joyful in the midst of crises might be easier said than done but that is exactly what God wants us to do... That's the message: Be thankful no matter what...
