New Year... A New Beginning

Many of us might be busy writing down our New Year's Resolutions... Others might be in the process of implementing it. Whatever and wherever we are right now on our lists, one thing is certain- and it all boils down with just one conclusion-OUR HEART. It's not really on the lists, but on our desire and will of really doing it. No matter how you desire to change, if you don't have the will of doing it, then nothing will happen.The list will be useless... 

This New Year, let's do away with those list...We can assess ourselves through our failures from the past. Instead of coping up with those list, we must first check our heart. How ready are we to make that change? How determined are we to start a new beginning.. Of course no one aims for negative results.. Everyone of us always look forward to a good results... Maybe we should start by thinking positively that we can really make a difference in our lives for the year 2010. Determination coupled with prayers will surely gets you to where you wanted to be... Postive outlook will result to positive output. Have a blessed 2010! Make a good start. Happy New Year!

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...

TRUE CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION: HOPE ON THE FIRST CHRISTMAS TREE

C

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!

WFW: Let's Handle Our Lives With Care...



Human as we are we're vulnerable to the trials and temptations offered by the world... Let's take a foothold in the words of God that we might not sin against Him... Let Him be our refuge and our shield.

Here's the Summary:
In the depths of the 1930's, Annie is a fiery young orphan girl who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan. Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy munitions industrialist, Oliver Warbucks. 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 | LyricsMode.com
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.

WFW-Eternal Life



THIS IS THE BASIC TRUTH:
I once was lost, Jesus found me, and now I have life! If He found me, there's no reason HE can't find you! GET A LIFE! BE FOUND BY HIM... Life is worth living when you know that you have a sure destination in the future... If you are fully aware that you are leading to a life that is EVERLASTING!
