in life, we do not know what will happen next. we do not know if tomorrow we will still wake up. we simply live our lives to what we know it should be. and yes, we don’t own this, we just borrowed it from Above.

been gone for almost a week, now i am back to reality again – work and more work.
just an update to my mom’s condition. before i left for my Mindanao trip, i visited my mom at St. Lukes, Tuesday last week that is right after her operation. I slept there for a night (thou it was really a sleepless night). Nevertheless, i left early in the morning with a peace of mind knowing that my mom is better now. what’s the real score? she has been diagnosed with a stage 2 breast cancer that is why she was operated to remove the bukol with the cancer cells. she also needs to be treated with chemotheraphy so please continue to pray for her (her healing and recover). we are just entrusting everything to God.
this is my mom, listening to her ipod so she can sleep easily. music heals, i guess. hehe!
worry-free, this is the exact words to describe my mom when she got up from her bed ready to bid me goodbye. kaya ayan nakapapicture pa di ba? with the “granada” (drainage for blood) on her tagiliran.
i’ve been staring my page for almost half an hour. medjo nablanko ako dahil sa tinagal ba namang nawala ng net. parang dpa ko naka move on uli to post something new. nwei, ito nagbalik na ako sa katinuan ko matapos ang ilang araw na pagkaka lost ko sa blogmosphere.
ayan to start with, since nakaka stress last week at nakaka pagod kailangan ng matinding weekend para mapawi ito. mangyayari ito kapag:
1. makikipagdate ka sa jowa mo tulad ng ginawa ko.
2. magcelebrate ng chinese new year kahit di ka chinese hehe!
3. magnasa sa mga cake na madadaanan mo sa mall. sarap kasing tumingin tingin (lang) lalo na kapag nakaka engganyo ang design ng cake.
4. magpa foot spa ka with body massage. yung ginamit sa akin jan eh milk, sayang nga eh dapat ininom ko nalang pala. hehe.
5. at kumuha ka ng mga litratong sa tingin mo eh maaaliw ka na kung sa anong dahilan eh di mo alam. basta masaya lang mag express sa pamamagitan ng mga kinukunan mong litrato.
kung di ka pa rin masisiyahan, kausapin mo na si Lord at ito ang sabihin mo: “Lord grant me the strength to change the things I can, the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets. So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner.
As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away.
Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel and missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood tree.
As he went further, he saw a large wild turkey up in a tree, but he had only one bullet remaining. A voice spoke to him and said, “Pray first, aim high and stay focused.” However, at the same time, he saw a deer which would provide more meat than the turkey. He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattlesnake. Still, the voice again said to him, “Pray first, aim high and stay focused.”
So, the man decided to listen to God’s voice. He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree, and shot the wild turkey. The bullet went into the turkey, deflected off a bone and hit the deer, killing it. When the gun fired, it knocked the man off balance, he stepped on the rattlesnake’ s head which killed it and fell backwards into a pond. When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a deer and a turkey with which to feed his family. The snake was dead simply because the man listened to God.
Moral of the story: Keep God first and everything else will follow.
Pray first before you do anything. Aim high in your goals, and stay focused on God. Never let people or things discourage you concerning your past. Do not look to man for your blessings, but look only to
|Lord, thank you for friends who warm my life with their smiles, who make life worthwhile, who carry me when my courage fails and comfort me when im sad. I pause to look back at parties made more enjoyable, loneliness more bearable because of their companionship. Thank you for their honesty when i cannot be honest with myself, for letting me grow in my own time, for respecting my feelings.|
This past few days, life has been so miserable. experiencing the pain brought about by the so-called love is the hardest part of loving. we have to take risk, to sacrifice, and to let go, just for us to be MATURE. thou my heart is broken, i know God has his own way of putting back its pieces. so here’s a simple prayer:
“God, i don’t understand it, but i trust you. And I’m not going to spend all my time trying to figure out why certain things have happened. I’m going to trust you to make something good out of it. You’re a good God, and I know you have my best interests at heart. You promised that all things will work together for my good.”
