Crowded Park

We went to Burnham Park this afternoon with hubby, my sis-in-law, her baby and my cousin Mylyn. We were surprised to see a bunch of people there. That park was crowded with people and it was so hard to walk in a crowded place like that. We planned to walk and roam around but we changed our minds when saw the people there. We just took some photos, and when we saw a vacant bench, we sat down and just gazed at the pond where many people were boating. Hubby sat down and he just watched people passing by. Others were just sitting there and having a picnic. When a kid came to sing a carol song and asked for money and an old woman came to ask money, we decided to leave. We proceeded to the store where Mylyn bought a pair of blue jeans and a sandal. After that we waited for a taxi and went home.

Rainy Days

It's a rainy morning here in our place. According to the news, it's typhoon signal #2 and so my 2 nephews and their helper have no classes today. Yap, it's Monday, first day of the week but no classes. I bet the kids love it but the people who lives in the place where the center of the typhoon hits are so worried right now. Most haven't recovered yet from the devastating effect of the typhoon and flood last year and here comes another one. Lord, please stop the typhoon and spare the people from calamity. I praise your name Lord and thank you for answering my prayer.

Missing My Sister

I wrote in my other blogs that my beloved li'l sister Violy passed away last September 27th, just 4 days after her birthday. It's been more than 2 weeks since she went to be with the Lord forever and left us so sad. It's like it hasn't sink in yet in our hearts and minds that Violy is no longer with us. I have no more sister to go shopping with me, no more sister to accompany me when we go to Manila, no more sister to talk to when I have some problems and so on and so forth. God, I miss her so much. But life has to go on but as I said to my hubby the night my sis passed away, life will never be the same without Violy. I love you ading ko and I miss you mucho, mucho.

Herbal Remedy

My sister is fighting the big C right now. She has lost a lot weight, weak and no appetite to eat. Just looking at her breaks my heart. It's been a few months that she's sick and she had been hospitalized a few times. She stopped taking medications because of the side effects but she's been taking some herbal teas and nutritional supplements. I had just read that papaya is a potent cure for cancer. I tried to boil some leaves and the taste is not good. I gave some to my sister but she just sipped a little. I also gave a glass to hubby but he said the taste make him puke. Now my bro-in-law made a herbal recipe for my sis. He got the recipe from one of his church members. It's a mixture of garlic, ginger, honey, lemon and apple cider vinegar. He used a blender to mix it and it tastes better than the papaya extract. I am also taking it now. I hope and pray it will work for my sis.

The Husband Store

My hubby sends me e-mails regularly. Most of them are forwarded e-mails sent to his mailbox. From time to time I share some of those e-mails in my blog especially if it make me laugh. Here's one that really made my day.

In New York City, there is a six-floor building called ‘The Husband Store’.

Women are invited to shop there.

Categories of husbands are separated by floors. There is only one rule that the women shoppers must obey: As you go up each floor, you no longer can return to a lower floor to choose there instead. If you go to the sixth floor, you can never shop at the lower floors again.

So a woman shopper enters the building, reads the rules, and decides this is for her.

She enters the first floor, and is informed the room is full of attentive, moderately attractive men, all her age. She likes what she sees, but decides to find out what is on the second floor.

Upon entering, the room is full of attentive men of her age, who also have good jobs and are responsible citizens. This please her, but she is curious about what else may be available, so she goes to the third floor.

Once there, she learns the room is full of attentive men who have good jobs, are good citizens, and are attractive. This, too, is good, but she is eager to see what else there is.

On the fourth floor, the room is full of attentive men who like children, have good jobs, and are drop-dead gorgeous. This is appealing, but still, she decides to try the fifth floor.

At the fifth floor, it is full of attentive men who have good jobs, like children, are drop-dead gorgeous, and are not only romantically inclined, they hunger to devote themselves completely to just that one special woman.

This is too good to be true, she says to herself, but still… she goes on up to the sixth floor.

At the entry, she reads an electronic sign, saying “Congratulations! You are the 3,127,948th consecutive woman to enter this floor. There are no men here….But: this proves that you, like every other woman, are IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE.”

Goodbye Friendster, Hello Facebook

I have been facebooking since December 2008. Prior to this, I've been so engrossed in Friendster but I got so disappointed with it because each time I changed the background of my profile and put some buttons or some cute graphics in it, Friendster will change or alter their codes and as a result, the codes I put in my profile won't work no more. It really made me mad. Imagine after all the hard work and time I spent in updating my profile's background, then suddenly it won't work. That's totally disgusting. So when I learned about Facebook, I signed up and posted some of my photos there. Then not long after that, most if not all of my Friendster friends signed up in Facebook too. I also signed up for hubby's FB so both of us are facebooking now. I seldom open my Friendster since I signed up in FB. That's what Friendster got after all those code alterations they did. Most people transferred to FB. So goodbye FS, Hello FB. Serve them right huh!

Getting Lazy

I'm back here again in this blog. I know I've been lagging behind in updating my blogs but I'm just feeling lazy blogging lately especially in this blog. I have 6 blogs all in all and I find it hard updating all of it. I ran out of things to write about unlike before when all of my blogs have their PRs. I got lots of opportunities to write about and of course I was so excited earning some money. But when the mighty google took away the PR of my blogs one after the other, opps became so scarce like rain during summer. That's the time that I got so lazy writing here in my blog and some of my blogs. I was even thinking of not renewing my domain in this blog and just go back to blogspot. Since I bought this domain, a few years ago, the PR still remained 0 and I'm not so happy about it. It's like I'm not getting my money's worth in paying the domain yearly. So I made up my mind not renew it when the time comes.

A Quarter

The following story was sent to me by my hubby in my e-mail. The message is so clear, practice what you preach. You just don't know somebody is watching your actions especially if they know you are a servant of God. I always tell this to hubby because he is also a preacher. Walk the talk.

Several years ago, a preacher from out-of-state accepted a call to a church in Houston , Texas . Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride the bus from his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a quarter too much change. As he considered what to do, he thought to

himself, 'You'd better give the quarter back. It would be wrong to keep it.' Then he thought, 'Oh, forget it, it's only a quarter. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it. Accept it as a 'gift from God' and keep quiet.'

When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, and then he handed the quarter to the driver and said, 'Here, you gave me too much change ...'

The driver, with a smile, replied, 'Aren't you the new preacher in town?'

'Yes' he replied.

'Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I'll see you at church on Sunday.'

When the preacher stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, held on, and said, 'Oh God, I almost sold your Son for a quarter.'

Our lives are the only Bible some people will ever read. This is a really scary example of how much people watch us as Christians, and will put us to the test! Always be on guard -- and remember -- You carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself 'Christian.'

Watch your thoughts ; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Watched A Movie

It's Holy Week and my hubby and I decided to spend the weekend in the city of pines. We came up here yesterday with my sister and her family. We will be here until Monday and while we are here, we will have to enjoy the cool weather. By the way, we watched the movie last night entitled Left Behind. It's a story about the end times and what will happen after the rapture. The movie was based on a best selling novel with the same title. I was not really satisfied with the movie especially the ending. I think it's "bitin" unlike the movie I have watched many years ago which really had shown what will happen during the tribulation. I just forgot the title of that movie and I wish I can remember it so I can find it in the stores. It will be a good movie for our film showing ministry.

A Car For Us

We finally found a car which is affordable and within our budget. Hubby and I really need one so we can go anywhere we want to go without borrowing my sister's van. We've been borrowing theirs for a year and we kept postponing to buy our own because of low budget. But last week, my hubby had run into a tree while backing up and it created a dent and scratch in my sister's van. I know what happened was an accident but I was upset thinking how much we gonna spend to have the dent removed. So I spent hours in the internet looking for economy cars for sale. I found one and we bought it last Tuesday. We had to changed the 2 tires though and now it runs smoothly. I thank God for giving us the car that we need and we pray that we can use it for many years to come.
