Taking The Lead

Making a difference is perhaps one of the biggest things that an individual could make for his society.In our church, our youth leaders (BOB and Femmes) made an effort to organize a youth camp intended for those young people who are seeking God's love and wisdom. The theme was Connect, Renew, Survive - GOD STRUCK! Through God's help, everything went on so smoothly and the three-day camp (October 28- 30, 2011) ended with a blast! I am so happy as well to see one of my students actively participating there. Looking forward to have more! Go go go young people!

Personality Development

 This morning, I got the chance to attend the Seminar on Personality Development- tackling about how to have a power personality. The seminar was so refreshing and I was more than satisfied. I could just hope that the presence of the Big Bosses in our school should be there so that they too will be reminded of the basic manners in dealing with other people most especially to their subordinates. Lot of things were discussed. They have personal grooming, phone etiquette (whew! Wish they were there!) and other basic disciplines that were already taught to us (but somewhat forgotten) when we were still in our pre-school years.Every time the speaker cite an example, it made me think of someone else whom should be present right at that moment for that person to realize that his mannerism was indeed unprofessional and should be corrected. Well, the request to conduct such kind of seminar was from the Office of the Human Resource Management and the approving body was of course those authorized authority whom I think would be better if there presence was also there. Yeah!

How to Encourage Reading in Your Children

Parent often find it a challenge to have their children read book, especially with all the distractions technology give these days – the internet, video games, movies and cartoons on television. Here are some tips to encourage reading in your children: 

1.Read yourself. Children learn from example. If they see you reading, they will eventually model after you and read too. 
2.Make books accessible and available. Most children who are readers live in homes that have a lot of books that are not only on display but are accessible for them to read. 
3.Make reading fun. Acting out and using different voices is a sure fun way to read stories to your children. 
4.Give books as gifts. 
5.Provide quiet time. Experts say that children (school-age children and below most notably) should only be exposed to two hours worth of screen time each day – this included TV time, video games, computer/internet and game gadgets (PSP, Xbox, etc). Having quiet time will let your children be creative with their free time and they can turn to physical play and reading. 
6.Read frequently, or have a schedule for it.  Offer to read to young children everyday, even several times a day.  Encourage older independent readers to read everyday as well, and engage them in conversation about what they're reading. 
7.Start a word list. Compile a list of words that they usually come across with. Make it their dictionary. 

Above all, praise your children and tell them they are doing a good job in trying and learning to read.

WFW: Fear

Mark 6: 50
50 because they all saw him and were terrified.
   Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
 Most of us are living in fears... Fear to face the truth and take the challenges... Fear to face the consequences of all our actions and above all , fear of accepting defeat.
How to overcome fear? 
Overcoming fear is easier said than done. 
Our fear disable us to show our potentials maybe because we have the fear of rejection. 
Our fear hinders us to do the will of God for fear of correction...
Fear cripples our potential, hides our motivation...
But if we only trust God everything that is within us, fear would be just a word...

But there's one kind of fear that each one of us must remember- that is the fear of the Lord for we knew that it is the beginning of all wisdom.

Proverbs 1:7

New International Version (NIV)
 7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
   but fools[a] despise wisdom and instruction.

Notable Graphic: WE

The message is clear: WE instead of ME 
In order to achieve a lasting relationship, we need to look beyond ourselves... we need to be humble and most of all, we need to cooperate with each other. One of the factors why relationship fails is the fact that nobody cares to humble down... One wants to outsmart the other, and the other wants to do the same. Such a sad scenario but it did really happen. There might be no perfect organization, no perfect group, no perfect community but if one will only consider the welfare of the group as a whole, then everything will be in order regardless of the weaknesses that each member might have.
It's time to make a difference... If we all aim to build a lasting relationship, it needs a strong foundation- and that foundation is what we called COOPERATION.
And talking about cooperation, it is not easy. It requires a strong desire to help people; something like earning an MSW online, an educational course that will equip us in doing social works which will allow us to serve other people.

Movie Sightings: Lagaan

I super like the movie of Amir Khan entitled, Lagaan (Once Upon A Time In India). I watched it last night with my hubby. The story itself already impressed me the most. I also appreciate Amir's exceptional talent when it comes to acting. All of his movies are kinda musical in type. Among his movies that I've watched are the Ghajini, 3 Idiots, and Every Child is Special.

The story is quite long (more than three hours, as usual) but rest assured that you will really love the movie. Winning a battle doesn't necessarily includes casualties...

Watch the trailer:

All in all with regards to its cinematography, It was beautifully filmed and went well beyond visual basic training

Five Question Friday





I am back! I started the weekdays with a question on Meet Me On Monday and I am going to end it up with today's Five Question Friday.... And here it goes:

1. Do you prefer your ice cream in a bowl or in a cone? 
        -Cone... Wafer cone to be exact!

2. What three things do you love the smell of? 
       - I am so sensitive to any scents now with my situation (pregnant) but I used to love the scent of my Givenchy Beach Girl, the scent is so feminine...



3. Giftcards or no? (In regards to gift giving...) 
      - with gift cards of course! otherwise your gift will be mistaken as something like there's a bomb inside considering that it has no card or a tag attached to it?

4. What sports did you play in high school if any and do you still play them? 
- Badminton... However, I didn't take it seriously and I haven't played it anymore...

5. Were you in band in high school? What instrument did you play?
- Not in High School but in my college days. I used to be a vocalist in a band whom we called as "Down to Earth Band. We even tried to join in band competition... :)

Thankful Thursday: God's Plan




Perhaps, one of the things that I should be thankful for is the fact that I am still alive today and that I can still think logically and come up writing this post... 
This week isn't really as perfect as I thought it would be. But all that starts well should ends well.

I am so preoccupied with the thoughts of earning more by doing online jobs like article writing and with the help of some co-blogger friends I was able to get opportunities from Direct Advertisers. But then, reality bites, everything is indefinite. And I realize I should not fully rely on it. It has been my prayer every now and then that God will bless us abundantly... that there will be financial breakthrough for me and my hubby... That's it. My mind is so engrossed with finding part-time jobs.

Then the truth occurs to me. I made it a point to present such request to God yet I deliberately do it on my own, unable to wait for His go signal. I decided on my own, work on my own, forgetting the faithfulness of God... I prayed yet I did it my way. So selfish, so impatient- that's me.

God's Promise:

Jeremiah 29:11
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Yes, indeed, I kept on claiming this Words over and over again. In fact, I included this on the header of this blog to remind myself always. But sometimes, anxiety overwhelms me especially now that my due date to give birth is approaching and I can't help it but worry a lot... But still, at the back of my mind, I am holding on to God's promises... His plans for me are not finished yet... HE still have a lot in store for me. I should learn to wait. I should hold on to my faith. I should not allow anxieties to shake me nor threat me with the bad thoughts that isn't happening yet and never will... I may be unfaithful, but God will forever remain faithful on his Words and promises for me...
Thank you Lord.

...On My Own

Today what I feel is different... I am not feeling well, literally. I wrote that on my fb wall... I just don't want to disclose the reason but that was really how I felt right now... I've been into this kind of situation before and a lot of things are crossing on my mind... I don't feel like writing, I don't feel like working. There was just this emptiness within me that is so hard to explain and to comprehend... Pre-natal syndrome? I really do not know. Maybe this is something to ask my sonogram technician. I just feel so bad and I don't even feel like eating. I want to be just on my own, without thinking of anything or anyone else.... 
I just have this lyrics but it really doesn't apply totally to what I felt right now, I just feel like sharing this:

Sometimes I wonder where I've been
Who I am
Do I fit in.
Make believin' is hard alone,
Out here on my own

We're always provin' who we are
Always reachin' for the risin' star
To guide me far
And shine me home
Out here on my own

When I'm down and feelin' blue
I close my eyes so I can be with you
Oh, baby, be strong for me
Baby, belong to me
Help me through
Help me need you

Until the morning sun appears
Making light of all my fears
I dry the tears
I've never shown
Out here on my own

When I'm down and feelin' blue
I close my eyes so I can be with you
Oh, baby, be strong for me
Baby, belong to me
Help me through
Help me need you

Sometimes I wonder where I've been
Who I am
Do I fit in
I may not win
But I can't be thrown
Out here on my own
On my own
... on my own

Care To Know How The Angels Are Doing In Heaven?

10 It was concerning this salvation that the prophets made careful search and investigation, and they prophesied about this gift which God would give you.11 They tried to find out when the time would be and how it would come.[a] This was the time to which Christ's Spirit in them was pointing, in predicting the sufferings that Christ would have to endure and the glory that would follow.12 God revealed to these prophets that their work was not for their own benefit, but for yours, as they spoke about those things which you have now heard from the messengers who announced the Good News by the power of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. These are things which even the angels would like to understand.

 We are more than blessed indeed... The Good News that was imparted to us by those who are ahead of us bears fruit... We learned the truth because they revealed it to us... The anointing that God has poured upon them was not in vain... Even the angels in heaven are so excited about this that they too would like to comprehend! If you received the Good News and live with it, the angels in heaven are so glad about it! How much more our Almighty God?

Love Your Pet, Not Its Mess

Most pet dog lovers anticipated their pet dog wagging its tails in meeting them when they're home from work. Such scenario would somehow help in relieving stress caused by all day's work. However, we cannot also undo the fact that our pet dog would really leave a mess if we allow them to be inside our home. One proof to that is the pet stains that they will leave on our carpeted floor. And believe me, cleaning as such would really be a pain in our back. Plus, you will also be suffocated with its annoying foul odor. I am pretty sure no one can stay longer with such condition. But no problem is without a solution, just make it sure that you really got the perfect solution. As for this kind of dilemma, the best treatment to pet stains and foul odor is the Spot Shot Pet Instant Carpet Stain and Odor Eliminator. Take note of the word "instant", this would only mean having a good time with your pet without worrying of the stains and odor which can be treated instantly. So, keep on loving your pet without worrying about the mess!

The Value of Contentment

It is not wrong to ask... But if you keep on asking even if the things you asked for isn't really that important, what would be its effect to the one whom you kept on asking for? That is where contentment should take place. If we do not know its value, most likely, we will always be denied with what we have asked for...

This reality have saddened me so much. If somebody close to you seems forget the value of contentment, you cannot help it but go against with that person... How I wish such person would come to realize that money is not everything. What's threatening me right now is the fact that a person can lie and fabricate stories for the love of money! Too bad but it's true.
