a Blessing

The video says it all.
To Nick Vujicic, you never fail making me feel how beautiful life is. You are indeed an inspiration to not only me but to all - You made me realized the true meaning of existence. We need not to have a perfect eyes, perfect face nor perfect body to be happy in life, we just need to appreciate what life's throwing upon us, to LOVE life in all circumstances. And above all, thank God for each day that we got the chance to enjoy life - to wake up another morning, to be able breathe, to communicate, to travel and be amazed with the wonders of creation, that that is quite enough to say 'I am blessed'.

Thanks be to God!

.:A short story to Ponder:.

When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and
said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly.
Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.

Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know
what I was thinking. I want a divorce.. I raised the topic calmly.

She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly,

Footprints in the Sand

I just want to share this wonderful poem
-that always..it always does..
-gives me hope in every challenges and trials
-I face on my Journey.

May it also inspire you as you travel your way.
God Bless!

One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
one belonged to him and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest time in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it.
"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome
times in my life, there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when I needed you most
you would leave me."

The LORD replied,
"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trials and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."

Lent: Cross, an accepted suffering

Another year had passed since the last time I've shared my own personal "Lenten" reflection on this site. Too many events had happened in between --- death of my father-in-law, cancellation of wedding reservations, re-assessing and re-booking, job transfer of my husband, government issues, calamities and there also, our wedding but that was just the outer part of it,  mainly the preface if we are to compare it with a book.  In fact, 'tis just a tiny dot, visible only thru what scientist calls a microscope.What covers a vast or large area in one's life is the experience, how this certain event has molded us, has re-formed us. Did we ever stop and for a moment reflected upon these events? Or even ask ourselves as to why and what's the purpose of it?

A Perfect Valentine


St. Valentine:
   What is a perfect Valentine to you, m'lady?

   (drew a long breath and replied)
   Hmmm, it is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers and choc'lates, sending greeting cards with heart-shaped outline and figure of Cupid.
Following the tradition, that...that would be perfect for me.

St. Valentine:
 (in a soft voice)
I see...a delicately wrought ebony screen.

   (puzzled, she questioned)
   I'm sorry, Sire? Forgive me but
what do you mean?

St. Valentine:
 (smiling, gently he touched her eyes)
See with your heart.
Tell me, m'lady...tell me what's missing?

   Quietly, she drew herself in deep thoughts,
seeing everything in her surroundings;
the expression on each of the faces of the people,
the establishments,
the difference in the status of living,
the culture,
the traditions,
the religions,
the characters....
in silence she whispered
with tears falling down her cheeks,


Prayer To Take Authority

Pray this before going to work or starting your day.  

 In the name of Jesus,
I take authority and I bind
all powers and forces in the air,
in the ground, in the water, in the underground,
in the netherworld, in nature and in fire.

You are the Lord over the entire universe
and I give you the Glory of your creation.
In Your name, I bind all demonic forces
that have come against us and our families
and I seal all of us in the protection of Your precious Blood
that was shed for us on the Cross.

In the name of Jesus,
I bind and command all the powers and forces of evil
to depart right now away from us, our homes and our lands.
And we thank you Lord Jesus
for You are faithful and compassionate God

Mary, our Mother,
we seek your protection and intercession
with the Sacred Heart of Jesus
for us and our families,
and surround us with your mantle of love
to discourage the enemies.

St. Michael and our Guardian Angels
come defend us and our families
in battle against all the evil ones that roam the earth.

A Message...

On this day of your life, Rizza, we believe God wants you to know ...
that difficult people are very important,
- they teach you tolerance and acceptance.
Message from God
If all was going your way all the time,
you would become a spoiled child, wouldn't everyone?
Difficult people are just one of the ways
God teaches us to expand beyond our egos
and accept other perspectives on life.

Got this from one of the many applications in Facebook
and I thought of sharing this on my site.
It's not everyday that we got the chance to open our Bible 
and reflect on God's word.
Because of our busy scheds on our everyday life,
we sometimes fail to hear that small voice calling for our attention.
Sometimes we need to stumble upon this kind of apps
to be aware and be awakened. 

And this message holds truth.

It's like, our imperfections
is God's way of reminding us
that no one has the right to judge others worth.

You know what the problem is......

"I'm not happy anymore and so I ask for a divorce"

When marriage isn't working out the way you planned it to be, you call for a divorce. Forget 'bout the vows, the commitment and the covenant you've made to God in declaration of your UNCONDITIONAL love for your once upon a time partner.

In our present time, marriage is no longer, well for others, considered sacred as it was before. I've seen a lot of couples who are living happily together, some I could say that would last a lifetime but after a number of years, they fall apart unexpectedly. I am not of course, claiming that I have the perfect marriage ever written in the history of mankind since we just got married last month but I would like to stress out that even if other countries has legalized Divorce, we still have the choice of looking back on our vows and choose the course to make the marriage work.

The Pencil says it all...

Got this text message from a friend and...
it tells about life's journey.
...Read and Reflect...

A pencil maker once
told his pile of pencils
five important lessons

Everything you do will always leave a mark.

You can always correct the mistakes you've done.

What is important is what's inside you.


In life, you will undergo painful sharpenings
which will make you a better pencil.

The most important is....
to be the best pencil you can be,
you must allow yourself to be held and
guided by the Hand that holds you.

My Perception

When it comes to love,
You're willing to sacrifice...

You'll do anything....
Almost everything...

You lie...
You cry...
You smile...

You become a slave to your own feelings...

Love changes your moods...
Your every being...

The way you think...
The way you see things around you...
The way you perceive life...

Without love...
Life is a waste...
No life at all...

For this,
I wouldn't dare living my life...
Without YOU...

'cause you're....

My love...
My life...

Dedicated to my husband, Karl

Was browsing some of the news feed on facebook this morning
when I stumbled upon this video shared by a friend of mine.
Was hesitant to really watch it at first seeing the label on it
but took the courage to do so, out of curiosity.
And this is what I've got.....
