High-tech competition!

With the worlds fastest growing high-tech competition today a lot of people are into high-tech gadgets too. Almost three-fourths of the worlds population are into having it and some into knowing how to make it. I sometimes wonder what would it be like if people will use space cars instead of regular cars. Would there be less traffic or worst traffic than ever? Well, I don't really know but somehow I have this weird imagination of myself riding in a space car. :D

I know some friends who are good in computers and are hunting for an IT Jobs because this jobs as they say are really a high paying jobs. I am just curious how this people knew everything about computer thing where I don't really know whats happen or how it works. Whew! no matter how I try to understand all this computer mechanism the more that I don't get it.

..while I'm waiting..

After all the issues I'm facing now with myself, I still am thankful to Jesus for this song!

..wish ko lang...

Happy naman ako today kasi yung blog kong to' ay nasa pr 2 na. Answered prayer ako kung baga... kasi pinagppray ko naman talaga. So dapat maging happy talaga ako di'ba?

Pero... di lubos yung kasiyahan ko kasi... bakit ba naman may mga taong ang hilig ipasa sa ibang tao ang obligasyon nila. I hate it kasi di ako ganun. I mind my own business kasi... at pinag-iisipan at pinag-uusapan namin mag-asawa ang mga gagawin at gugustuhin namin sa buhay at ayaw naman namin maging burden ng ibang tao.

Ang pinaka-aayaw ko ay yung iiwanan ako ng responsibilidad.

hay!... this is just me and my selfish self.
Forgive me Lord!

Genesis 22:1-29

Gen 22:1 Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, "Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied.
Gen 22:2 Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about."
Gen 22:3 Early the next morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.
Gen 22:4 On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance.
Gen 22:5 He said to his servants, "Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you."
Gen 22:6 Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them went on together,
Gen 22:7 Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, "Father?" "Yes, my son?" Abraham replied. "The fire and wood are here," Isaac said, "but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?"
Gen 22:8 Abraham answered, "God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son." And the two of them went on together.
Gen 22:9 When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.
Gen 22:10 Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
Gen 22:11 But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven, "Abraham! Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied.
Gen 22:12 "Do not lay a hand on the boy," he said. "Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son."
Gen 22:13 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.
Gen 22:14 So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, "On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided."
Gen 22:15 The angel of the LORD called to Abraham from heaven a second time
Gen 22:16 and said, "I swear by myself, declares the LORD, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son,
Gen 22:17 I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies,
Gen 22:18 and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me."
Gen 22:19 Then Abraham returned to his servants, and they set off together for Beersheba. And Abraham stayed in Beersheba.

Smoke-Free here!

I just can't believe how pregnant women still smoke knowing that it could affect their baby's health. Sometimes I can't help myself but felling annoyed with those kinds of soon to be moms or mothers. I'll leave all the good cigars to my grandpa who is now with Jesus. Well, I am not saying that he died of smoking but of other complications and of old age too!

But I would like to say that pregnant women should really not smoke for the sake of the innocent baby they carry. They could smoke all they want after they give birth.

Acne prevention

I knew a lot of good looking men and women when they were younger but not that good looking anymore because of the scars that the acne cause. Whenever we have acne in our face, we should treat it right away because there are loads of treatment everywhere anyway. So why wait till it leave an unsightly marks.

There even sites like naturalacneproducts.org where we can find a natural products for acne. So I don't see why other people don't still take the time and effort to treat their acnes.

I am just glad and thankful I don't have it or else I'll be very intimidated.

Weight Loss Drinks

I saw this advertisement on tv about a juice drink that says it can help a person lose weight. There are actually a lot of best weight loss drinks out there. The only think we should do is try one of these and see ourselves what will happen.

I have tried a lot of weight loss drinks before. It did help me a bit but I am really an impatient person so I stopped and start eating again. Yet, the best weight loss still is proper diet and proper exercise. I sometimes do exercise though but most of the time not :(.

Well, this is life anyway and everyone needs to move on!

A good place to see

We have friends who lives somewhere near or exactly at North Carolina. They have told us how beautiful the place is. We even want to go and see this place ourselves and enjoy the beauty of God's creation there.

It's not that hard and expensive to live in this place and your family will enjoy outdoor activities. The Outer Banks rentals are in good deals too. This place has a lot of beautiful thing/scenery to offer. Everyone will really enjoy staying in here for long term or even just for short term visit.

I wish that someday I'll be able to visit here.

Apostles of Christ

1Co 4:1 So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God.
1Co 4:2 Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.
1Co 4:3 I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself.
1Co 4:4 My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me.
1Co 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men's hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.
1Co 4:6 Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, "Do not go beyond what is written." Then you will not take pride in one man over against another.
1Co 4:7 For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not?
1Co 4:8 Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! You have become kings--and that without us! How I wish that you really had become kings so that we might be kings with you!
1Co 4:9 For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like men condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men.
1Co 4:10 We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are honored, we are dishonored!
1Co 4:11 To this very hour we go hungry and thirsty, we are in rags, we are brutally treated, we are homeless.
1Co 4:12 We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it;
1Co 4:13 when we are slandered, we answer kindly. Up to this moment we have become the scum of the earth, the refuse of the world.
1Co 4:14 I am not writing this to shame you, but to warn you, as my dear children.
1Co 4:15 Even though you have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel.
1Co 4:16 Therefore I urge you to imitate me.
1Co 4:17 For this reason I am sending to you Timothy, my son whom I love, who is faithful in the Lord. He will remind you of my way of life in Christ Jesus, which agrees with what I teach everywhere in every church.
1Co 4:18 Some of you have become arrogant, as if I were not coming to you.
1Co 4:19 But I will come to you very soon, if the Lord is willing, and then I will find out not only how these arrogant people are talking, but what power they have.
1Co 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.
1Co 4:21 What do you prefer? Shall I come to you with a whip, or in love and with a gentle spirit?

Health is Wealth

I truly believe the saying that health is wealth because no matter how wealthy a person could be if his health not good... he or she is the same with a person who is poor because money can't buy good health instantly. We need to work it out day by day.

Hubby and I don't usually eat breakfast but this morning I woke up early and made breakfast for the two of us, and we will make it a point that from today and onwards we will eat breakfast. I hope I lose a pound here in Cavite because there is no way I think that I'll able to afford Bioidentical hormone therapy austin. Though I know it is still affordable for others but for my financial situation right now.. I doubt I can!

X-box

My boys friends really likes x-box games. I remembered when a youth from Canada came for a 2 months to do a mission work here in the Philippines and he brought with him his xbox games and he also teach my friends how to play it and from then and on my friend got addicted to it. There were even nights that they didn't get any sleep because they played and played.

Well x-box games are really a cool games to play during day off but not during ministry days because they will get in trouble playing with it. But now that almost all of them are married and has his own life... they can play x-box games whenever they want to. :)

Cousin is taking up a nursing degree

I had a good talk with my sister the other day. Hubby and I went to Mang Inasal, Libertad to meet her. As we ate our lunch... we also did a little chat. I asked her how our relatives doing and she told me that one our my uncle Nesto's son-actually his youngest is taking up nursing in College but not an online nursing degree though.

It feels good to know that some of my cousins are really taking studies seriously, and I feel proud for my "tito" too because though he hadn't that much, he make it a point to send his kids to school despite of the lack of financial thing. Well, I know that fact too that he himself is an education lover too. I remember grandma telling me to make my "tito Nesto" as a model in my family because even though he needs to walk two hours to go school because they don't have money for transportation he will, and there where times that he doesn't have any food to eat during lunch time he doesn't care for his goal is to finish school and skipping classes was not on his vocabulary. He even begged grandpa and his brothers to just send him to school.

Now... the Lord blesses him with kids that also prioritized studies more than anything. I salute you "tito Nesto"!

My friend who lives in Georgia is actually planning to get an online nursing degree when he has time and his two little kids won't be that hard to babysit.

Boys toys

No matter how old a man is... he's always has a toy.
I say this because I saw my boy friends past the age of twenty buying a figure and have heard hubby told one of his friend that "mommy used to buy me this toy when I was young". These made me rolled my eyeballs. How could young adult men feels like seven years old when is in front of toys.

I remember two years ago that hubby almost begged just to get the PS3 that a friend is selling. We'll I just told him too that if it's his priority... go ahead then, but somehow hubby did not get it and I did ask him why anymore.

And one thing more... boys toys are expensive too!

Expect the unexpected!

I been thinking of what to do with my life and my ministry this past end week of the yearfor this year 2011. I would like to plan for the ministry but nothing comes... I been thinking of things to do. I did asked God... but same with some people I know... He remain silent too.

I was kind of floating actually as if going with the "come what may" flow, until this morning when my team leader told us that in our devotion that there were two greatest sins that the Israelites had committed: idolatry and forgetting to honor sabbath (they forgot to take a rest... they kept on working). So then I just realized that the Lord want's to plan for my life and for my time for this year, and all I need to do is take time to get closer with Him! (just like the old days... were there was only me and HIM).

I desire that the Lord will treat hubby and I again to places where he wants us to be to give him the glory. It doesn't always mean that giving glory to God is doing something for his kingdom... sometimes it simply mean... take notice the beauty of his creation and give God the glory due to HIM.

...cavitenia...

Five days from now hubby will be moving to Cavite an hour away South of Manila. We might live there the rest of our lives since we also got a house there. sigh! part of me doesn't really want to leave Makati, there is something in here that I like. But what could I do if I really meant to live in Cavite... forever.

This maybe a sacrifice in my part but I am still glad knowing that hubby's family is rejoicing because we will living close to them and they hope that we will be a great help to them in their times of distress. (goodness!) I pray that I'll be able a good help to them (because there is a great possibility that I might get burned out of helping and understanding them, I'm afraid that one day I'll loss temper and get really angry like incredible hulk. so help me God! :)
