Do you ever encounter people who promises you but don't have the word of honor to fulfill such promises? These kind of people really irritate me and they're not worth my trust. If a person breaks her/his promises to me, it would be hard for me to believe her/his word next time. I happened to encounter one person who is very good in breaking her promises and she can't keep her word. She promised me many times and broke it many times too. At first I just kept my cool and tried to understand her but she kept breaking her word until I reached my limit and burst with anger. I got fed up, wrote her a letter and I expressed my disappointment, anger and disgust. I thought we will become good friends because she's also a fellow Christian but I don't need someone who cannot keep her word and all she does is just breaking her promises. Even if you are the most beautiful or richest person in this world but don't have word of honor, then people will lose their confidence and trust in you.

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.

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!

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.

Exercising to Music Can Boost Your Verbal Skills
For example, while studies have shown that exercising alone has the capability to improve your mood and increase the speed of your decision-making process, listening to music while exercising has been shown to improve verbal fluency as well.
A 2003 study published in the journal Heart Lung found that listening to music while exercising boosted cognitive levels and verbal fluency skills in people diagnosed with coronary artery disease.
Coronary artery disease has been linked to a decline in cognitive abilities. In this study, signs of improvement in the verbal fluency areas more than doubled after listening to music compared to that of the non-music session.
Music Reduces Stress and Improves Healing
Music is a great mood regulator, whether it’s used in conjunction with exercise or not. Loud, upbeat music generally has a stimulating effect, whereas slow music can act as a sedative.
It’s very encouraging that more and more health professionals are beginning to realize the value of simple techniques such as music, using it as an adjunct to promote healing even in more conventional medical settings. As pediatrician Linda Fisher stated in the article above, it’s the music’s rhythm, melody and tonal quality that puts the patient in that “special place of peace” where healing can be achieved faster.
For example, harp music might be particularly helpful for people who have heart trouble. Harvard researchers have shown that the rhythms of healthy hearts may be similar to those found in classical music, and that certain rhythms, such as that of harp music can cause your heart to beat more normally.
Other studies from the early 1990s concluded that music significantly lowered the heart rates and calmed and regulated the blood pressures and respiration rates of patients who had undergone surgery.
Music therapy has also been shown to:
Improve motor skills in patients recovering from strokes
Boost your immune system
Improve mental focus
Help control pain
Create a feeling of well-being
One study published in the October issue of The Journal of Clinical Nursing found that pregnant women listening to soothing music showed significant reductions in stress, anxiety and depression.
