Lord We Need You

Eternal God, whose mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase your mercy in us that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence, submit ourselves to your Holy Will, which is love and mercy itself. Father God, Help my dear friend Kimmy. Help her dog Harley to fight and win her battle against her illness. Give her the strength she needs to gain back her life and joy. She has such a nice joy for Kimmy. Please take away her sickness and pain. Give her strength and health Lord. She needs it, She deserves her peace and to be without pain. Help her to get better or make it painless for her… and Kimmy. May everything we do, begin with your inspiration, continue with your help, and reach perfection under your guidance. I ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your son, who lives, and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. From all my heart I thank You Oh Lord. Amen.

Day 9 – A talent of yours

Nah! When I first read the title of this post, it made me a little uncomfortable, I didn’t want to appear egotistical and I was also struggling to think so something I am talented at. This one is a tough one sick.  In general I don’t feel particularly talented at anything.  A friend of mine often calls herself a “jack of all trades, master of none.”  I kind of feel the same.  I have many hobbies, and many things I enjoy doing, but don’t really feel I’ve mastered any of them. I’m decent at most things I try, but it takes a lot of discipline to really cultivate a talent.

When I was younger winking ,  I remember people telling me I was talented in certain areas, but I can’t come up with ANYTHING.  So, I’ll share with you the things that people compliment me most about. People say that I am pretty talented when it comes to writing songs and poems, I am awesome at making speeches, hahaha ansabeh? AWESOME silly that is really funny.

But I see myself as an understanding person and can easily relate to others, Hmmm teka talent ba yon? hehehe dibale padayon  cheer😉 Hmm…  I’m a realist about things, I don’t expect grand things to happen left and right, I don’t expect life to be anything as it’s portrayed in the entertainment world. This makes all the little good things in life seem like pleasant surprises; I’m constantly being made happy by the simplest of things. I can also play basketball, I was athletic kunuhay back then.  don't tell anyone

I also like to sing. When I was younger, I used to sing in church and won several awards for the singing contest. Oh dabah?  applause Nakadaug ko kunuhay, pakapalan lang ng fez ang puhunan. Hehehe #Makatawa ko really! That experienced made me sick! Hahaha. silly

Yay! yes! Singing!!! P-A-G-K-A-N-T-A!  Siguro yon lang yong talent na alam kong magaling ako ngunit hindi ako kahanay sa mga birit queens sa mundo. 😉

I will always remember what my Mama, Lolo and Lola told me.

Everyone  studying it down.

God don’t like arrogant people.

-Don’t let success think your better than others.

-Remember to go back to your community and give, and teach others they too can set and achieve goals.

-Remember be nice to the people you pass on your way up, because you might need them on your way down.

-Be humble all the time.

– And most importantly give praises to God for what you have.

To end this story,  ” It is ok to accept the praises of people but don’t let your head get too big.  Don’t let your head get too big.”

thumbs up

Knowing Suffering Can Be Knowing Truth


In my life I have found one simple thing that rings true. Without pain and suffering there is no growth. You cannot help others if you’ve never experienced anything yourself. This is why Jesus wandered  in the desert to be tested. Why did He die a horrible painful death? It was to show us the truth. Like so many of you, I have been searching for the truth. Rummaging through the rubble of contradiction and beneath the ruins of my own experiences. I was tossed about on the raging sea of confusion and turmoil for so very long. What is the truth? The TRUTH is…  you can’t get to or appreciate the good times without going through the bad. If you’d never been through trials that seemed to beat you down repeatedly how can you truly say you understand someone else’s situation? How would you be able to give them Christ‘s message? The bottom line is, You couldn’t!
