It’s a nice neighborhood, it is quiet, safe and well kept and I love my house. People in my neighborhood are nice, quiet and polite. I am friendly with my neighbors, but I only have one trusted friend and her name is Nicole. I moved here for more than a year now and I just love where I live! It is a quiet and peaceful middle class suburb in South Dallas.

Day 43 – The weather outside


T’was breezy, cloudy and cool outside. I feel blessed and thankful to see this wonderful day.

Day 39 – A good book you’ve read lately


Mastering the American Accent with  4 Audio CDs
by: Lisa Mojsin M.A

 

I really love this book. It has lots of examples and details. It is really a helpful book for my accent. The book aims to teach the non-native speakers the correct American accent and pronunciation. The book demonstrates each pronunciation with practice words and sentences which are simple and straightforwardly understood. My God!  Those exercise words and sentences showed me that I have been pronouncing words incorrectly. It also teaches me the rules of which word and syllable need to be stressed and which are not. I feel that those rules have helped my intonation when I speak. This book is FANTASTIC and the price is REASONABLE.  You will benefit it tremendously by following the book’s instructions and applying to your daily life.

Day 31 – A picture of yourself taken today


Mysterious Blues

”You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life.”

 I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again,

‘’A pictures can say a thousand words.’’

Day 30 – Your breakfast


Vegetable Juice, it looks weird but tastes amazing!

And had SUSHI this morning. It was really delicious, it had to be, because I ate all 7 🙂

That’s all for today guys. I am so, so, so unbelievably tired, but it’s too hot to sleep. On the other hand, I really do need to go to sleep now because my headache is killing me.

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.

The Land of Promise and Opportunity

When we think about America, the first thing to come to mind is that it is a rich country. It is a great country- you like America because it is a land of opportunity. America gives you many plausibility that you cannot find anywhere else. No one can deny that the USAis the most powerful nation in the world, and the most influential as well. And everybody knows that it is the land of freedom and democracy.The greatness of this country is the result of the efforts of the entire American nation. Many Americans are intelligent, hardworking, and ambitious. What we don’t realize that America is also filled with lots of rapists, murderers, homicide’s, poverty, and discrimination. Lets not forget everybody’s favorite – Racists. I watched the Daystar channel today and saw ministries voluntarily feed hungry people with their mission AMERICANS FEEDING AMERICANS.” This Caravan has helped provide food and essentials to hurting military and American families coast to coast .The economic downturn has affected millions of Americans. It gives me a view that America is not always a bed of roses.
On the contrary, there are loving and caring people with determination to help others. America may have its flaws, but there’s still nowhere else in the world better to live in than the U.S. When it comes to politics, corruption in America is not as widespread as the other countries. So the great thing about this country is that it can be home to anyone because its so diverse and everyone is treated equally and fairly. Most people are very nice and friendly. America does have it’s problems but what country doesn’t? For the six months of living here, America seems to be a beautiful country and the people are very friendly when compared to other parts of the world. Ofcourse, everyone has good and bad in them and no one is perfect.

What’s it like where you live in America? Do you like America? Why or why not? 

Graceful And Light Like A Bird


Picture: Nizy’s personal photo collection

I receive all of life with thanksgiving,

 I have gratitude for EVERYTHING.

 That has ever occurred to bring me to this moment,

I give thanks for the joys and the sufferings.

 The moments of peace and the flashes of anger,

the compassion and the indifference.

the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear,

I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.

I know that deep within I am graceful and light,

 Like a bird I will spread my wings and fly!

                                                                                                                                 

Thinking About You!


Woke up at 5:00 this morning

Wondering what would happen today

Thinking bout your appealing  face

And the funny stuff you say

I close my eyes  and pray

That you’re thinking about me this way

Because God really knows

That I am thinking about you

Every step of the way

Note: I made this poem when I was in High School 😉


Now the light has gone away Father God listen to me while I pray.  I adore you, my Holy God, and I love you with all my heart. I thank you for having created me, for having made me a Christian, and for having preserved me this day. Pardon me for my wrongdoings today. If I have done anything good, be pleased to accept it Oh Lord. Protect me while I take my rest and deliver me from all dangers. May your grace be always with me and may your guidance be with my friends, relatives and family. Bless and protect the Philippines and  United States , protect your people all around the world. Our loving and most gracious God, Please bless and guard your Israel, guide and protect  your children who live there. Our God, the life of all who live, the light of all the faithful, the strength of those who labor, I thank you for all the blessings and I humbly ask for your protection and guidance though the coming night. Bring us in safety to the morning hours; through him who died and raised again for us, your Son our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST. Amen
