Everything I have for Your kingdom's cause....
Hosanna in the Highest!

Come and sing along with us..

God bless

A Different Valentine

Christmas season has just ended but of course God's love never ends and it's a fact that never expires. So what's up now in the air is the celebration of love! I do not mean here an agape or paternal, it's the love for your beloved someone. Most men right now were having a hard time picking up the right gift for their love ones.  Flowers and chocolates are quite on top of the list, well, that is what men thinks. I just found a site that offers an interesting advices and helpful tips ideal for men who cannot figure out on what to give. Men, as we all know, need to make a good impression and show much love and thoughtfulness more than what flowers and chocolates can offer. There are gifts that are very much available in the market. Valentine's Day ideas for girls and women doesn't doesn't really have to be girlish at all. Pink and Red presents are adorable for young girls who loves bright and vibrant colors. But not all women are like that. As for me, I may have this femininity thing but I do still appreciate those things that boys enjoyed as well. If you need further advise  visit www.articlealley.com. See for yourself the rightful gift that women would surely adore!

TT: THE WORD


Psalm 119: 105- Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

How powerful is the Word of God? It's beyond measure! It pierced through one's soul and it strike hard when you are being hit. It is in the Word that we find the truth... It is in the Word that we are being reminded, reprimanded and commanded to do what is just and right before God.
I am thankful for His Word... His Word is a revelation... An eye opening... Indeed His Word is a lamp to my feet so I will not stumble and a light for my path so I will be guided.

 Psalm 119: 9,11
 9: How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.
11: I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

His Word is not just an ordinary text, it spells a life everlasting.

God bless everyone!

I Am Not A Famous Blogger...

Yes, it's true... I Am Not A Famous Blogger... (as of this moment)...
But I am really really trying hard...
guess what? I learned to love blogging and it really doesn't matter to me now if I am famous or not...
What matters most is that I can express my thoughts here... I can share my insights...
AND slowly but surely, I was able to monetize my blog!
Perfect, isn't it? How I wish Ben Spark can give me more ideas and tips on how to become a famous blogger.... Or maybe, he will just consider me on his long list of (not yet) famous bloggers for interview (yes you read it right!).. Well well well... I am gonna be a famous blogger..... SOON!
How is that huh?

WFW: Heart Check


 Lately, I realized that I am too preoccupied with so many things and accomplish only a few. I have been too busy at the office that I was not able to finish checking the exam papers of my students, haven't started computing their grades and it is due for next week. At the end of the day I realized, it has been a long day and yet I was not able to meet my goal. Why am I working too hard? Why do I stressed myself? Indeed, I need to realign my priorities... I need to check my heart.

Scenic Sunday: Ang Tugas

Scenic Sunday
It's my first time to join this meme and I am proud to feature this Scenic Sunday my most favorite place. One may thought that there is nothing unusual about this scene. Well maybe yes since only those nearby residents have known its location.  I have been to overlooking places before but this particular place holds a special place in my heart... What's so unique about this tree was its location. it is situated separately from others.  The first time that I have been here the sun is about to set. Mind you, sunset is so cool to behold at this kind of place. I was not able to stay that long since it's difficult to go down when it's dark. It was on this place that a covenant was made between us and God. Sad to say, there are rumors that the place will be converted into a commercial place soon, hope against hope may it just remain as a rumor.  I wish I could go back there soon.

Is Your Volkswagen Cool?



Way back in college, I am already fascinated with the Volkswagen Beetle and how it looks. I just find it so cute and feminine, though most users/owners are men. I cannot even believe its superb performance which really last for long. A good friend of mine own one in faded yellow color. The first time I get a ride with it was really unforgettable. As I was expecting for a cooler ambiance inside, I was a bit surprised when all I can feel is the heat. My friend then told me that the Air-conditioning System was busted. I really do not know about engine parts then so I just shrugged.




 It is only now that I learned that the Air-conditioning (AC) parts for any vehicle model like Volkswagen are replaceable.Volkswagen AC compressor , as they called it is available online at www.discountacparts.com for a very reasonable price. They offered full line of Volkswagen AC parts. Even for the old models like the 1995 Volkswagen Beetle, its AC parts can still be ordered with free shipping. Its quality is fully tested and guaranteed to be of best quality. They even offer a full warranty. It is very easy to shop with them and ask for order and support through their toll free phone number.


 Maybe I need to share this to my friend who owned the Beetle so my favorite Volkswagen model will be back to the high way once again.



                       1995 Model (the same model to that friend of mine) I really find it cute.

I Desperately Need Your Help Please

I have mentioned once on one of my post about my blogging dilemma,

getting more opportunities which is seems too difficult and rare if you do not have your own domain. With that, one of my goals for this week is to have one. I planned to have it with the assistance of the Blogger.com website (my host). According to Mamang Grace, it’s easy to purchase your own domain with them. They will really facilitate you during the transition period of your new domain from blogspot to dot com. For an annual fee of $10 only you can have it through your EON account. Since I already have my Union EON account, I am all the more motivated to have it. Last week, I have an outstanding Paypal balance of $17 (good enough for the required payment) so I have transferred $15 to my Bank account last Saturday.

My $15 was converted into P 669.00 with P 50.00 fee (service fee, I guess). Then Paypal sent me this email:



2-4 days transactions seems an eternity for me but I patiently wait until I received this emil notification from them just this morning which really turned my day gloomy:




All I know is that I succesfully added my bank account to my Paypal as what they have emailed me:





I was really shocked and I do not know what to do next. And when they returned my money to my Paypal account, they charged me with P 250.00:



I cannot really believe it. I am new to this kind of transaction but what I do not understand was that my difficult to hard-earned few dollars was consumed. I do not know if I have the right to ask either my bank or Paypal.


Along with that lost hard-earned dollar is my goal.


Can somebody help me with this?

Safety First



Vehicular accidents often happen. We heard it on the news, and there's even some which we have actually seen from our naked eyes. It is a horrible scene that even I cannot imagine. I am into a vehicular accident once. It was really so scary. I am with my friends that time. We came from leadership training. While we are on our way, the wheel suddenly wiggle that brought us to the opposite lane and then it turn half-side down to the ground. The van was really damaged. The front mirror of the passenger van broke into pieces. The side windows crack and the right front wheel was removed. By God’s grace none of us died though most of us were quite injured.

When we were brought to the hospital, the car was left to the site. It has to be towed back to the city. Good thing it was insured, the expenses for the repair was really expensive if without an insurance. There are so many auto insurance now like HVG insurance which offers excellent deals. It is even easier to the part of the owner if the insurance company offers a 24-hour hassle free claim transactions. There are some who requires a lot which delayed the transaction and left you and your car waiting for long.

Some may not get their vehicle insured thinking that it will just entail a lot of cost. Partly true, but one must consider that this is for their own benefit. Besides, it is not really a problem considering that there are insurance companies which offers discounted prices for comprehensive insurance. Don’t take the risk, life is so precious. Safety first.

When Love and Hate Collide at Haiti...

Barely one week ago, a destructive 7.0 magnitude earthquake shaken the world of Haiti turning the buildings into rubbles and killing a lot of people including Filipinos... That wrath has never ended yet because once again they were traumatically shaken  with a lesser magnitude of 6.1 causing the people to run to the streets fearing of being trapped again inside a building...


Not a good start for the year2010 for them. Haiti is believe to be the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere... Helpless Haitians were seeking for help. They have not yet recovered from the aftershock of the previous incidents and now the latest roar reminded them again.. Who can survive such a situation as this... Everything happens for a reason but sometimes that reason is beyond our comprehension.

Let's pray for them... God bless.

How Far Can Unreasonable Anger May Take You?

I have researched multiple verses about ANGER and this is what I got. All of these are from the NIV Translation:

Proverbs 12:16 A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.
Proverbs 14:29 A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly.
Proverbs 29:22 An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.
Proverbs 30:33 For as churning the milk produces butter, and as twisting the nose produces blood, so stirring up anger produces strife."
Ecclesiastes 7:9 Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools.
Colossians 3:8 But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
Psalms 37:8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret-it leads only to evil.
Ephesians 4:26,27 In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.
Ephesians 4:31,32 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
James 1:19,20 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.

Out of those verses I've quoted, I would like to emphasize on this one particular verse:


Proverbs 30:33 For as churning the milk produces butter, and as twisting the nose produces blood, so stirring up anger produces strife." 

Anger can only make sense if done without committing a sin... Often in the TV News and even to our local Radio, we heard almost everyday about people killing one another because of anger. They were provoked thus resulting to a murderous act. Who does not feel angry ever since? I guess, none of us. Even a little child has his tantrums, so with us adult.  Anger became a sin when you did something that is against the law.


It's not bad to get angry. We also need to release the tensions that we have inside us provided that we cannot commit murder (Sounds too extreme?). Yelling and cursing to  somebody you hated the most (or maybe  during that moment) is a crime itself. The book of Ephesians 4:29 (NIV) says:

29Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen

We should be careful. If we let anger overwhelms us, chances are we can no longer control ourselves. Look at Jason Ivler. He's been in the news nationwide and the crime he had committed. Everything is originated from unreasonable anger and pride maybe?


His life's experience may serve as a lesson to those who just can't calm and control themselves.




Preserve  your life, your family and your future.

As one famous man quoted:
CONFLICT IS INEVITABLE;
OUR RESPONSE IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY

Overcoming Your Fear



There are things that we considered as dreadful to do, though, not true for everybody but only to a few who are afraid of that particular thing. Like myself, I really hate needle being injected through my veins, but I said to myself that I have to overcome that fear. That fear was brought about when I had my much-more-dreadful vehicular accident more than 4 years ago. Various needles were injected on my arms, from blood test to anti-tetanus and the last one was the PANTOLOC that was injected through the dextrose. Indeed that's the most painful physical experience that I had (aside from the actual accident). It haunted me, and I hate it.but need to overcome it and I successfully did. Last year I went through blood letting. At first I was really hesitant but my desire to overcome that fear overwhelms me. That was my first. Then I decided to undergo the same process for the next three months but I was not feeling well so it was postponed. Then today, finally, I got the chance to donate a blood again. (Thanks to mobile Red Cross team)
 

It was very timely because my colleague need a blood (of the same type) for his brother who is into a weekly dialysis because of his kidney. It feels good to be of help.
The best way to overcome your fear is to face it.

Ex-link anyone?

I learned that link exchange will help build up traffic on your blog and on this way your PR may increase. Hmmm want to have a link exchange?

The Mommy Journey


Toby


I felt glad that little by little my blog is being noticed by those whom I considered as famous bloggers like Chris of The Mommy Journey. I enjoyed reading her blog about her journey as a loving mom and a wonderful wife. Her latest blog which recaptures her experience about giving birth is indeed so cute. Toby and Kyla are so adorable. To all loving mommies out there, kudos to all of you!

Invest Your Memories, Trust Only the Best





Video coverage is the best way to treasure the most important events of our lives. We, Filipinos, are very particular of this. Be it a birthday party, dedication, promotions, anniversary and wedding events! These are just among those events that we have to reminisce. We are fortunate enough that today, videos can easily be captured and edited. We have an analog video camera at home but we still have to convert it. Sometimes also if we just take the video on our own, chances are it will not have a very good result.
It is worth the cost if we will entrust the video coverage to a professional videographer.Buddy Gancenia is one of the best corporate, events, wedding videographer in the Philippines He is a highly experienced Producer, Videographer and Editor, with 15 years of service to the country's top television networks. He is the Sr. Video Editor in the ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation and Sr. Line Producer-Director for Negosiyete and Agrisiyete, which both aired on GMA Channel 7. He won the Grand Prize in the 1st Sony Wedding Video Competition 2007. With those facts alone, you can really have the assurance that with them, your video is worth cherished and keeping for. I’ve seen one of his numerous wedding video masterpieces.
 

It is really very well-done. Their wedding video is indeed worth the price and the trust. How I wish I can avail their package when the most important event of my life like this will come. They also caters corporate videos for company promotion which will surely gain popularity and success.

Philippians 4:13



wee... it's mid-month already and yet my goal which is to have at least 25 post/ month seems too good to be true... I need to work triple time to achieve it.. i just need a free schedules.. wooh! i'm getting there i know... Press on jackie! kaya ko 'to! God is there to give me the wisdom that I need! :)

Blogging Dillema

I admit I love to write but sometimes I am too busy that I cannot do it anymore. I am aiming to complete a minimum of 25 blogs per month but considering my work I doubt it if I can really make it. The performance of my PC at home is not as fast (in fact, it's too far behind!) as Charter's Ultra60mbps Internet Speed that it cannot cope up the necessary speed that I need to complete my tasks.
However, I would like thank to Ate Grace who is always there to share her knowledge in blogging and gave me some tips. Because of her, I already have my EON card from Union Bank. Though I still need some tutorial about so many things I know that many fellow bloggers out there are very much willing to extend their help (thank you in advance). These are my goals for the first quarter:
1. more opps (through out the year! please give me some tips)
2. more post (geeee.. wish I have more time to do this)
3. own domain name (need to save more dollars for this)
4. more followers (count yourself please)
5. And..... OWN LAPTOP! (HP Brand or COMPAQ Presario Brand) so that I can extend my blogging beyond office hours!

Looks like too unrealistic? Aside from the fact that it's not wrong to set our goals, God knows my desire and my motivation.... With HIM nothing is impossible! (Calling all advertisers, God is calling you!)

God bless everyone! :)

TT: Gift of Friendship

Pray for Denise & Eddie


I've been following Denise' blog lately and I learned that his husband went through some great challenges, a sort of a barometer of their  faith...When most of us were so overjoyed celebrating Christmas and New Year, these couple shared a different story. But that was more or less three weeks ago. God never leave them. Her lovebug is under therapy right now and I am asking you to please include them in your prayers.

In moment like this, it feels good to know that God lead us to the kind of people who are willing to walk an extra mile just to be with us in our adversities. This is one thing that we should be thankful for...

The Bible emphasizes the beauty of friendship.... In Proverbs 18:24 it says,


 24 A man of many companions may come to ruin,
       but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Perfect!

How about you, have you found the real people in your life?


I truly admire the kind of faith that these couple have... Please continue to pray for complete healing.
God bless...

WFW: What's In Your Heart?




Each one of us has our desires in many form. Some of us might have a 5-year plan which is in preparation for their long-term goal, others might have just keep it short and of limited time. Whatever it is, the thing is that, it was impressed in your heart and it became your desire. Others might have the desire of earning more that's why they are working too hard for their promotions. For a student, his desire might be to pass the course with a flying colors! For parents, their desire is for the betterment of the whole family. There are so many other things that every individual has been keeping in their hearts.
The question now is that, whom do you consulted for the fulfillment of that desire? Your boss? your teacher? Elder? The Bible is very clear in targeting our desire... Before anything else, let us FIRST delight in God. How? By doing the things that He first impressed in our hearts when we first acknowledge Him and surrender our life back to Him. Share His Love.
God bless everyone. Have a blessed week ahead.

A Purpose-Driven Life

God impressed something in my heart lately that I need to get His work done or get started? My apprehensions before were all gone. He gave me strength and confidence to reveal His kingdom among my colleagues and I am very thankful that we're able to successfully started the Core Values Formation Program last Tuesday and today with Ptr. John (thank you so much Pas) It is my prayer that the seeds that has been sown by Papas on their hearts will grow into what God desired it to be...
Looking forward to another blessed Tuesday next week! To God be the glory!

TT: Being Empowered


I've got so many things to thank God for...I wanted to make up with those times I wasted in the past year...So I made it a point to start doing the things that I ought to do... He gave me this kind of burden that I do not want to diminish, the burden of sharing His goodness and unfailing love...
To name a few for this week alone:
1. Monday- Prayer accountability at work... it felt so good knowing that somebody has been praying for you
2. Tuesday- Our core group at the office finally started (this will be done regularly)
3.Wednesday- Good news: A Great Favor from God (an answered prayer)
4. Thursday-  I started my class for this year sharing beautiful insights about life and the immeasurable love of God

These are just among the things that I am really grateful. God empowered me and I know He will continue to do so! To God be the glory!

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!
