I'm sick.

Actually, for the last two days. But today, I was just too dizzy I ended up coming to the office not until after lunch.

Still dizzy but feeling a lot better now. I hope you include me in your prayer. I can't afford to get sick in the midst of everything. Thanks a lot.

I'll be going home early today to get enough rest.

Blessings to you!

Sunday Blessings

The Lord’s Day is always a blessing.

Last Sunday, I attended two Church Services—7am-9am at our Local church and 9am-11.30am at RCM. The message in both churches delved in two topics; (1) recognizing the man of God; and (2) faithful tithing. It was good to hear the message and of course to be part of the worship. I was really blessed. Actually, I went to RCM with Bro. Mark and his family to promote the Freedom Concert in November. I’m happy to see old friends in that church and to share the passion of the MYF to the whole congregation. I’m happy to hear that Pastor Totle said the church will support the endeavor.

On the MYF Core meeting, Bro. Mark said he had major news to tell. He said Bayside Church already responded to our letter for the Thrive Conference next year and thus could be a roadblock to our plan to attend. On the contrary, he was just so excited to say that the Church in Sacramento actually sponsored our registration and accommodations for the entire Conference duration! Praise God! That was so much blessing for the team. Now, what we need to pray for is to raise enough money for the airfare going to the US and coming back home. The Lord is The Great Provider. Amen.

I have prayer requests to ask:

1. Please pray that all goes well with our preparation for the Freedom Concert Crusade in November. That the Lord fills the venue with souls to come to know Christ.
2. Also, pray that we meet the requirements to get our Visa. And that we raise the needed amount for our trip to the US.

Thank you so much. Blessings to you!

i'll be heading to the last session of the Seminar on the Book of Revelation. Hope I catch up!

GCM meeting

This is work-related.

We had another meeting today. Honestly, I'm tired of it. This simply doesn't make the work easier; on the contrary, I think it hampers my productivity. Huh...*sigh*

This project specifically has caused me alot of stress. I don't know, this one in particular, gives me a headache...

I just wish the Congress will just be through. like that. of course i want it to be successful. So help me God.

Back to Headquarters!

Surprise! Surprise! I'm back at the office. My sister and I took the early ride and was successful (I was REALLY SURPRISED). Haha! Good thing we both aren't late..

Time to share my gratitude.

I thank all those who cared to remember my birthday and in one way or another extended their greetings to me. i love you, guys! You're the best. To my friends --here and afar -- thank you so much. You simply made a difference.

Just one person I missed alot --more than ever-- my mother.

Now I have to get back to work mode. So much for my vacation..

Day 1

First formal day being 24. Hmm, I did get a lot of sleep. Sew my brother's and father's pants. Helped Archie with his film analysis paper. Watched Jake 2.0 for the first time. this show is good. I like it a lot. A secret agent - thing. My kind of show.

As i write this, i'm thinking whether to go to Manila tonight or not. It will be more convenient for me to travel tonight since commuters will be swarming the streets tomorrow (today is a holiday). Huh, this is the dilemma of someone who stayed at home longer than the usual. You simply don't want to go anymore!

What if i just take chances and leave tomorrow morning? ---think--- Ok, I'll stay.

Birthday! Bodey!

Yup, the big day! As if. Well, of course, the Lord has blessed me with another year, I should be thankful and I am.

We had a good service this morning. It's happy to be home on your birthday. Actually, nobody expects me to be here today. Last week I said I'm going to Cavite for my birthday. (Well, that was all tantrums!!!) of course, I didn't. Naughty girl!

Sleep is the word. I got a dose of it today and yesterday. After the service this morning, the youth gave me a cartolina with their birthday messages. Yeah, too much of individual birthday cards. I got a lot of birthday greetings from friends, too. I'm wondering, when will the greetings stop and the gifts start coming??

At night, we all (the youth) went to perya (local carnival) and pick our rides. Last year, I tried the carousel. Guess what? I finally made it to the Horror Train! It's hilarious! We were screaming to ourselves for the sake of screaming. Haha! I think that made my day!

All I want to say is, Thank God for the gift of life.

small things make a difference…

i like that title. it means a lot to me.

We have a beautiful morning today. The sun is up and temperature is perfect! I have lots of things scheduled at work yet I believe this day will end blessed.

received a few morning messages today. some are funny, some are inspiring. thanks friends.

It’s my childhood friend’s birthday today. Incidentally, we have the same name (just slight difference in spelling) and almost the same birthday (mine is two days from now). It’s also my cousin’s birthday, Julius. Have not seen him for awhile. I miss you, kuya. Come home soon. Happy birthday to both of you.

And something really made my day today. I am so touched with this. Thanks Sir Keith. I appreciate it. I love the poem.

Tonight is the third session of the Seminar on the Book of Revelation. Lord send more kids tonight.

Happy weekend to all.

today is a blessed day!

and i claim it the name of Jesus, my Lord and Savior! Amen.

The Lord has answered Teeny's prayers (and mine too!)! Thank God. Today we went off together to work and was really happy we did. We plan to have a lunch date later. I'm so happy the Lord blessed the desires of her heart and grant her a nice gift. The Lord is good. I'm so happy for you Teeny.

Last night, I shared some personal struggles with my friend Teeny. It was quite a relief and it's good to have someone to listen to you. Actually, I shared with her what I told my Pastor last Sunday. It was really relieving to speak with someone in God's family. Thank you Lord for using these people around me.

The book launching yesterday was a success. Thank God.

Today, I have several things on the line up. I pray for the Lord's wisdom and strength to fill me so I can finish everything for today and work with a cheerful heart. Thank God for reminding me the scripture, "work as if you do this in the Lord". I will try to remember that always. Have a wonderful day to all!

whenever you feel...
like you're the greatest loser on earth,
just remember...
Jesus thought you're worth-dying for.

friday entry

This is simply unbelievable (or maybe not!): My boss gave us another demanding workload in the midst of all the cramming projects that we already have. Not to mention that it overlaps the deadlines! My assignments are already killing me (ok, that’s exaggeration), and now here comes another research with a buzzer-beater deadline. OH MY!!! Lord, give me the strength and wisdom to meet all these…
Multi-tasking could really drag you to the limits…*sigh*


Today, my ‘favorite’ wu xia series (kung fu drama) will air its final episode. *sigh* I would really miss Dada and Gou’er…

Farewell Love of the Condor Heroes’ Xiao Long Nu and Yang Gou… you were really awesome! The martial arts was exceptional.


I’m going straight after work to the second session of the Seminar on the Book of Revelation. This is part of the four-Friday seminars we scheduled on the topic for August. Last week despite the rain, we still had the venue jam-packed, me and the other leaders had to stay outside. I hope I could get a seat today :p

I think it’s going to rain tonight. I’m looking forward to going home for the weekend.

Blessings to you!

short entry

Yesterday was a very happy day. Again, the Lord has blessed us with a surprise (an early birthday gift to me and Aidz, ok, plus Teeny :p). Haha! We took the NEDA (National Economic Development Authority) Technical Exam and we passed! That was really great; since we didn’t really expect it (the whole-day exam was really tough—hands up--pwew!). Before we went, I read James 1:5 and claimed it. And praise God, He blessed us that day.

We had ice cream (Pistachio flavored). yum yum!
Thanks to my friends who prayed for me. And to my family, too.

Maybe it’s because of so many things I’m doing and still have to do (at work) that I feel so depressed today. Huh, tiring. I never want this feeling. *sigh*

Today is Aidz’ birthday. Happy birthday brother!

On Wednesday, I’m scheduled to take an exam from one government institution. Given a chance, this would really open good opportunities for me. However, I just learned today that we have a staff meeting on the same day. I certainly want to take the exam, but I’m torn with the idea of skipping a meeting. Plus, I don't want to disappoint my boss. Well, I don't really know if I can have a 'next time' to take this exam. Boy, how am I going to deal with this situation?
i think my phone is over... as in dead.
what makes me feel bad about it is that someone (i dont know who--my siblings!) plugged it using a different charger. i'm positive that this caused the flaw. now it just won't charge anymore. maybe it's the battery or the phone itself that was damaged... err...

just when i need it this happens...

The May 10 phenomenon

Remember this post? Yup, it's about the flood-warning thunder of May. And so there was thunder on May 10. And today is August. Guess what? There is flood. As a matter of fact, our place is flooded (at least the front yard and the ground floor - we live in a two-storey house). Perhaps that 'thunder' was telling something afterall.
