One down, one more to go party

My Z's "dedication day (Christening day)" was finally over and yet we are planning again for another party on June (her first birthday party). We were actually contemplating of whether to pursue  it or not before,  but now is decided to do party since we saw that it is where relatives see each other. It's actually serves as a reunion kind of. So even though throwing big parties these days are not practical but we will pray that God will provide us provisions so that we'll be  able to do it for the sake of relationships (both family and friends).

Having a do it your own party is really  hard specially with the set-up and pack-up time. My feet hurts and I got really tired after Z's dedication party specially when the youth who helped us set-up went home already and "we" with my dear friends were left cleaning the dirty dishes and some other mess. If I could only hire a food server at Food Server Jobs to set the food table up and to clean it after (specially packing up the left overs) I probably would because doing this things needs skills and patience.

I thank God for He has given me friends whose passion is to do party events and helping friends does their parties :). Without "ate Raquel" my baby's party would never be that beautiful!

Food and Gifts :)

Last night was good but kinda tiring. I cooked food for the whole family  (my family of three then hubby's mom and three siblings). It's good to have them at the house actually but I just can't help myself but wanting to just go to bed and forget everything. But of course I don't wanna spoil the moment so instead of resting I forced myself  to to get up and excite myself by opening my baby's gift's even the clock did not hit twelve yet.

It was good opening my baby's presents, it made us all lively and made the almost quiet house alive and giggly again. How I wished though as I opened the gift that a someone had slipped a box of jansport backpacks gifts for my out of town usage specially now that my friends and I are planning to go up North to celebrate New year!

I soo want you

Ooh gosh... I'm really into wanting this one. I was at the grocery store awhile ago and I was looking on in the meat section I was thinking of cooking lumpia shanghai for dinner, but the thought of the preparation made me decide to go for roasted chicken instead. But my cravings is still here with me. I'm hoping I'll have this food on or before Christmas.

Meditate upon His Word!

Jeremiah 33:3

New International Version (NIV)
3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’

Friday, December 16, 2011 thinking of food :)

Yes... I'm thinking of menus for my baby's Christening on Friday. We order food already though, but since we only order for three different dish, I now thinking of what else should I add to the menu. I have a lot of choices though but my problem is, I cannot cook all of what's in my mind because I have a baby to take care of.

I might do my all time favorite *chicken cheese roll and my hubby's recipe *pasta con ala doi. These dishes are easy to prepare.

I might also make pink leche flan for dessert. :)

 I remember a friend who work in a hospital who has loads of new scrubs uniforms that's in the closet yet. The hospital gave them four sets a year reasons why she has loads. Sometimes I borrowed her scrub pants to use as a pajama whenever I do an overnight stay at their place.

These  Cherokee uniforms scrubs below is the scrub I really like because it seemed  fashioned to fit your body. These scrubs made me want one. How I wish I'm working on a company that requires employers to wear scrubs, I mean beautiful scrubs just like this one.

Psalm 84 NIV

Psalm 84

New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 84

Psalm 84[a]
    For the director of music. According to gittith.[b] Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. 1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
   LORD Almighty!
2 My soul yearns, even faints,
   for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh cry out
   for the living God.
3 Even the sparrow has found a home,
   and the swallow a nest for herself,
   where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
   LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
   they are ever praising you.[c]
 5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
   whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
6 As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
   they make it a place of springs;
   the autumn rains also cover it with pools.[d]
7 They go from strength to strength,
   till each appears before God in Zion.
 8 Hear my prayer, LORD God Almighty;
   listen to me, God of Jacob.
9 Look on our shield,[e] O God;
   look with favor on your anointed one.
 10 Better is one day in your courts
   than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
   than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
   the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
   from those whose walk is blameless.
 12 LORD Almighty,
   blessed is the one who trusts in you.

Silver and Gold Coins for Christmas Gift?

Gift list haven't started yet and I'm not sure if I  can start it still. Things are really going out of control specially when it comes to finances. Things have gone way far different now... and I really need to accept this fact now that we cannot do the same thing as before... when we have no baby yet. This time our priority beyond anything else is the need of our adorable little girl. If before I can buy this and that.. or anything I find interesting but this time I have learned and yet have to learn to accept that I cannot do such. 

Well if ever I have the means to buy a gift for friends I would not hesitate to  buy silver coins co'z this is not a common gift you give and I know that they would treasure this and would keep it.  I like this Canada coins below though co'z the country has a special spot in my heart. If I have to buy a coin for myself I definitely would get this two. :)

Home alone with my gorgeous.

Yes... I'm home alone with my gorgeous baby Z again. It's her and mommy again and again and again... I love being with her in her good moods and bad moods I'm not complaining. As my dearest mom's friends says... just enjoy... she will soon grow up and won't be a baby anymore nor again. So enjoy every moment with your baby.

So now... we both are lying together in our tiled floor but we are in opposite direction co'z she roll and roll and roll and it's so tiring if I have to come after her. So I let her go as long as I know and could see that she is not harming herself.

We both are waiting for daddy to come home. Daddy thought that we are a delight to see when he comes home... what he doesn't know we are more delighted to see him every-time :)

Play drums like a rockstar

Staring at this awesome drum set made me think back of some situation three years ago when I was just new member of  the Youth Mobilization team ( a religious organization that helps the unreached youth). I went with a co-team mates to a tribe up north, a four hours drive from the Manila. Their place was up in the mountain, a very tiny village but with beautiful people.

They have  a very small old but cement church with really nothing in the altar but the presence of God probably. I don't see any musical instruments unlike in my church in Manila where we've got all that our worship team needs. But all I could see in this small church was a water jug  sitting down in the corner of the altar, and when I asked the pastor what the jug for, he said that they uses it as a drum. My heart was broken and my eyes fail me co'z tears run down. All I could say during that time was a prayer that may the Lord sees their heart of the people there  and hear my prayer of blessing upon those people. And lo and behold when I came back after a month a drum set was sitting in there new and shining.

I just forgot the the drum set brand co'z I was focus on the whole thing. It might be a Tama Drums or something. I don't know... co'z all I know then that the youth of the church went singing and dancing and worshiping.  For sure they enjoyed playing with the band specially now that they have a keyboard and a guitar. This thing below is actually the best, love it!

Midnight Blue

For baby and grandma

Hubby's mom dropped by at our house one day with a big smile on her face co'z she has with her an extra large diaper for my baby of four months, I know it was quite big but it helps. It was a branded diaper reasons why I can't just let it go, anyways, I had to put on her during night time so I had no worries at all that someone might see it and thought of me a weird mom.

It was a packed of thirty pieces but hubby's grandma saw it and asked for some she thought that it maybe a baby diaper but since it's extra large in size it might also fit on her.  Sure did, it fits on her co'z she is no big woman and sure indeed she save a penny for a diaper. It is still good to have one rather than wearing nothing specially these days that an   adult diaper cost more.

So instead of bringing thirty, mom just brought twenty pieces co'z grandma had ten. It's just an ironic thing to think that a baby and a grandma shares the same size of diaper. lol!

Schools should have metal detectors

I saw it on television, heard it from a neighbor, read it on newspapers, yes, it's all over the news-killings at school and malls have grown in number these days. I just have one question though how come these people were able to bring deadly weapons inside such establishments knowing the guards always look into each one belongings to see if someone had brought with them unwelcome things.

A couple of weeks ago I saw in the news that a student was shot dead by another student. Faculties of the school and parents were shocked hearing the news. Their question are: how come these people or students were able to bring such weapon to school knowing the guards has metal detector that can detect such things. However I also learn that detectors are not solely for metals only there are also that detects gold like  metal detectors gold.  If your carrying with you a gun or a knife with gold in it, the ordinary metal detector might not detect it but the gold detector will.

I just hope though that deadly metals/weapons will be confiscated  whatever device they may use.

Hungry mode :(

We ate early later this evening than usual because hubby suggested a pasta food for dinner. Even though I was too tired to do anything and pasta was not on my menu, I still give in to hubby's craving for one condition... that he would be the one to prepare the food.  

I'll be posting probably by my next post the food that hubby cooked, but the picture below is actually one of my friends that I copied. This is just to emphasize my cravings for food. Actually.. this don't satisfy me but just  fuel up the grumbling stomach.

Collectible coins

Are you fan of coins? May it be a collection of old coins or new coins or printed coins or a token from something or from something. As for me I do have some of these collectible coins that I've got; some from friends and some I've got from the places I'd been.  It's fun collecting challenge coins specially if you have a place to display it on. As for my collection coins it's somewhere in my closet or worse some kiddos probably had it.

these coins are lovely and fun to have:

Good health is necessary these days

Having a four months old baby in the house is no easy thing to do. It's fun and exciting but not an easy thing. With all the waking up very early in the morning and not to mention that you also get up every after hour to check if her diaper is still okay or her back is not perspiring  or she will wake up for food or wake you up just for companionship.

During the day time with her sleeping and you want to sleep as well but just can't because you need to do the laundry, wash the dishes, clean the house, prepare meals, tidy up yourself or do blogging and facebook. Your time is so valuable and very short unlike in the old days where you have all your time to yourself. Well.. anyways,  in the midst of these chaos busyness, I still praise God co'z having my baby is the most wonderful thing that ever happen to me and one best gift from the Lord aside from having a great hubby.

Having a really good... good health is very.. very  important these days for me and hubby. We cannot afford to get sick with our baby around. Though back pain visits us every now and then, we try to get the best back pain relief ever so that the pain will go away till another health problems arises. Coughs and colds visits our family of three more often too because of the climate change (giving blame to the climate change), and these visitors are really stubborn because it stays longer no matter how we drives it away.

Now, I putting my faith with regards of my health issues with the best of meds   and amazing health problem solution and I try to eat healthy to get fit as well. But one thing I really does when things get worst is prayer. I really prayed hard for the good health of my family :)

Gifts (birthday and christmas)

With Christmas is coming soon like a signal number three typhoon and so it my heart and mind is being stormed by thoughts of what to gift my family,godchildren and friends as well. There were even times that I want to hold back the time to June so that i can still have ample time to save and earn. Yet, there is nothing I can do now since it's 50 days before Christmas already, and this count down is driving me crazy.

I felt like I needed to give Christmas gifts since I don't give gift on birthdays specially to family co'z I know they are expecting. Good thing my girlfriends are  not expecting anything from me co'z they are able people, they definitely can afford the things they want. All they want is... friends would come on their birthdays co'z it's one thing that made us come together and have fellowship. So, whenever a friend's birthday is coming soon, we make it a point that we tell what food we're going to bring.  And as for me I see to it that I can cook food to brought as my  girlfriend birthday gifts.

Actually as early as June I already told hubby that we used send Christmas Cards to friends early... early as October and yet the month is almost over I have forgotten the cards. I'm so busy with my baby co'z these past few weeks  my little girl got sick and as a mom I was worried and not to mention our expenses got doubled.

I just hope and pray that we'll be able to send mid of this month so that it will get to them before christmas day.

She's happy with him

I have known of Filipinas (means Filipino women) who dated guys not of our own race through online dating. Most of them got lucky  because they ended up together, means the guy came to marry the girl. Its really an amazing thing to know that lovers though having a long distance love affair or even separated by wide seas and vast sky or thousands of miles gets closer ever and end up happily ever after.

I have a friend that I only have known through my blogging and is residing in the States, she is a Filipina who got married an American. I really don't know if they have met online or if she had sign-up on a  free online dating and met him. The thing is she and her husband with a new born baby girl is living with a happy contented life. I just hope and pray that who ever to marry a foreigner or got connected in an online dating site will get a life just like my friend had.

A Worry List

I myself worries a lot of stuff and since Christmas season is at hand... my worries are more about money and materials things. I  don't know... the devil got me of thinking over these nonsense things and have robbed me of my peace and stillness in God. Not to mention that my daughter got an upper and lower right lung pneumonia and this got us in going back and back to the hospital.

"Do not worry about tomorrow"

I was worrying about a few things as I sat in my car under a shade tree at lunchtime.  Then a robin, with a fat worm dangling from its mouth, landed near my door and looked up at me. The robin was a vivid reminder to me of Jesus' words in Matthew 6:25-26 -"Do not worry about your life... look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap  nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father  feeds them. Are you not of more than they? 

Years ago, in an article in Denver Seminary magazine "Focal Point" Paul Borden gave some helpful suggestions  for worriers: Start a worry list - write down what you're worried about. The bills, your job, your children or grandchildren, your heath, the future. Then turn your worry into a prayer list - ask the Lord to work in those situations you're concerned about. Pray specifically for your needs and depend on Him.  Turn your prayer list into action list - if you have any insights that there's something you can do about your cares, do it. As we turn out worries into prayer and action, Borden says (Another author), "Paralyzing anxiety can be replaced by concern for the responsibilities of life."  Why not start you list now? - Anne Cetas

Don't fret about the future,
 Or be consumed by cares,
 Instead take all your worries,
 And turn them into prayers. --Sper

Does anyone likes acids?

I was at a mall nearby the other day and was surprise that there were lots of cigarettes booths, they were selling different types of cigars, and what stunned me was this electric cigars that was won't be consumed. I wonder though if those are not health risk specially when you are smoking an artificial cigar.

Yet now... there is another cigar called "acid cigars for sale". I wonder how does it taste specially that it is said that it is well-fully handcrafted and is imbued with special herbs. I don't smoke and is not a big fun of cigars as well but this thing makes me think and wonder.

Ipod Nano

APPLE IPOD 8GB 6TH GENERATION NANO - SILVERIt's a sad thing to know that the famous Steve Jobs passed away already, it's sad because the famous ipod, ipad, iphone gadgets might lost it's upgrades. Apple company definitely lost something great, more the worth of billion dollars.

Another thing that make me sad is... the creator of all these beautiful gadgets passed-away already but I haven't got any of its creation not even the famous 8g ipod nano yet.  I'm afraid that in the next few months these gadgets will cost more and it means that the more that I cannot have it.

and in fact I could almost taste your smell...
that's how I desire you!

Printed t-shirts

I visited my godchild four days ago before my little girl and I come back home. Can't believe how he'd grown tall for just over two weeks that we haven't seen each other. He's only eleven moths old and fifteen days but his height belongs to a two year old. Couldn't believe it how this little boy have grown so fast. The little boy knows how to make face as well and almost doesn't recognize me and baby Z.

I took care of him when his mom prepare lunch for us. Well, he doesn't like it really having looked over by others. He wanted his mom alone. I carried him so that he could looked and see what's his mom doing. As I brought him to the kitchen I noticed this small two t-shirt that has print that says "my granddad is awesome and he will give me an ipad", and the  other says "my grandmom is awesome and she will give me and ipad too"! Simply awesome babies t-shirt, I like it!

I myself has  a lot of Bible verses printed t-shirt, and I can go for more than two weeks wearing such t-shirts without repeating what I have wore already. I have that loads and I love them all. It's my friends business reasons I have them and I have loads. I love t-shirts with prints on as long as it's not foulmouthshirts for funny t-shirts co'z I'm just not a fan of it. But I love t-shirts like the one below :)

My baby: then and now :)

I am so thankful God has given me a beautiful baby. She changes a lot in me and she always make our day interesting. She make us kneel before the Lord as always to ask for His grace everyday. I love her and will always love her. :)

(two months ago)

As a wife, I need to get reminded

1Pe 3:1  Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives,
1Pe 3:2  when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.
1Pe 3:3  Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.
1Pe 3:4  Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.
1Pe 3:5  For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands,
1Pe 3:6  like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.
1Pe 3:7  Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.

Gadgets: GPS

RAND MCNALLY INTELLIROUTE TND 710 TRUCK GPS - 7 INCH HD SCREENMy friend's dad is a truck driver, and his dad drove really big truck, eighteen wheeler  if I'm not mistaken.  He actually should it to us and let hubby try to drove it a little. It was both fun and scary to see my man driving that beast truck.  Seeing loads of trucks in the long wide road made me asked a question to them (the setting was when we were in Canada, sorry for not stating) if the owner of the truck and its goods could still know where the truck is or  if they just trust the driver would bring the goods to its destination and bring back the truck to them again.  I also wonder if the know where they are going when they brought these goods to places with only an address at hand. I wonder as well if they have more than one gps or wonder which truck gps is really reliable if they have many. ( I really don't know... just wondering).

Well... me and my innocence (or probably I;m just too naive about such things, don't blame me co'z we don't have those here in my place). It's just amazes me to the max when I saw this small tv look like on the car dashboard. I though it was a little television until they told me it's a gps and not a television. Funny me I know... but I do believe that in God's time when He will grant me a car, I know that He will add a gps gadget as well :).

What keeps me inspired :)

Road Signs

I love traveling and so far the furthest drive (I mean riding in the car while hubby drives) is sixteen hours down south. It was a scary but interesting trip. Actually I was praying while hubby drove because I was afraid of a lot of things like: rebels that would stop us and hostage us all or worst kill us, bring trucks and buses that would accidentally hit us, lack out gas station in the way (we might run out of gas) and car break down ( I was afraid that the car would break in nowhere place in the middle of the night).

How I really wish that our ministry vehicle has a roadside assistance plan so that it's not that scary to travel far going to provincial ministries. It would be easier and less worries if we have the plan specially now that the van is old and overused.

Farmers and Pumps

With the arising need of financial assistance, I am now thinking of ways to bring more income to the house. One thing that I think of is lending money to my relatives in the province to help them with the farming in exchange of sacks of rice when harvest season comes. One thing though that keeps me is... I'm afraid that since I am a relative... they might not take it seriously and would spend the money but not giving it back to me. I don't know, relatives are hard to trust sometimes because they know that I will just forgive them when they mess up.

Irrigation in the province is doing good to the farmer actually but when summer comes and drought visible in the land irrigation is not enough, some farmer uses pumps to water their plants. My family and relatives doesn't have one because it's expensive. If I could afford one someday, I might get goulds pumps at for them, but as of now I won't say anything or promise anything to them because I'm afraid I might disappoint them when I can't fulfill my promise. It's hard to disappoint keens, when burns deep when they're hurt.

1 Peter 3:15-22 (NIV)

1Pe 3:15  But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
1Pe 3:16  keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.
1Pe 3:17  It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
1Pe 3:18  For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit,
1Pe 3:19  through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison
1Pe 3:20  who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water,
1Pe 3:21  and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also--not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
1Pe 3:22  who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand--with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.

Wishing upon...

In-laws was at our house last night almost all of them actually minus hubby's dad.  They came to visit our daughter. They were here at dinner time and they were planning to call chowking for a delivery, but since I cooked beefsteak, they instead bought an ice cream for dessert and did not call for food delivery anymore.

While they were here we talked about loads of stuff that we want to buy for my daughter like a crib and a stroller. I hope and pray though that I be able to pass the job online that I am going to apply later today.  We really need to have those things for her at least next month, specially now that she's getting older and bigger, it's hard to carry her anymore.

One more reason why I needed this online job is... because I am praying to buy a car at least next year. I want to save money to buy a second hand car. I don't a brand new one this time cause it cost a lot of money, at least a second hand one is not that expensive, though we need to pay a little extra for over hauling and other repairs. We probably need to have it painted new and buy new tires and rims too. I know this wouldn't be that expensive as with the new one, anyways we just need four new tires and four new rims and not 20 rims because we will be getting four wheels and not twenty as of that of a truck.

I pray that God hears my prayer and indeed grant the desires of my heart. :)

I'll Gonna have this (wishing though)

I am definitely  a homemaker. I love being home with my baby, I love doing household stuff, I love cooking food for my hubby. I'm in love with nice couches, beds, tables and chairs, household equipment and kitchen stuff. Whenever I would visit a mall or a department store I would always take a look at the kitchen's wares and household stuff.

I just hope that when our house is done, hubby and I will be able to get cashmere throw for my couch.  I am really wishing hard just now that I'll be able to get the online job I am thinking of applying of so that I'll have extra income cause extra income means I can buy the things I like. Also, I need extra cash to buy my baby a crib :)

..and soda after meals.

Munch food at six in the morning
munch food at ten in the morning
munch food at three in the afternoon
munch food at seven at night
...and a snack at eleven... just before bedtime.

Goodness, I can't help but do these because I get tired and hungry, but totally not blaming my baby. I just wish that I can take safe diet pills that works in excuse to my bad eating habit. I'm hoping though that when my baby gets older I'll be able to eat healthy because my baby is eating my food as well.

This supposed to be a cooking blog...

... that turns into just anything. To tell you honestly... I miss posting my personalized recipes.  The reason though that I don't post my cooking in here because I don't cook that much now or when I cook I just do something that I have written or have posted in here already.

I promise though that when I have time I will definitely post again my cooking in here.

Wanting you... Iphone

I've been wanting to have you...(iphone) since the world begun, I mean since you've been out in the market. lol! It's just your too expensive for me  specially now that I have a baby. There was one time actually that you've been my priority, but this time you are the least. Someone came along more precious than you are and that is my baby Ziah.. who is now  lying helpless and amazing on her bed waiting for mommy to give her her milk.

Well... since I cannot afford to buy you this time yet but, I think I can buy Iphone accessories  in preparation and in faith as well that somehow someday you will come my way. :)

Wanting to own this

With all this humidity all I can think is a cold place like a hotel or a mall or something.
Then probably a beach or a pool  or a good cold soak on a vintage tubs.
Truly its really hot in here (I mean inside our house because the fan is with
the sleeping baby.)
I would actually rather be hot and sweaty than hearing the babies loud cry. I'll just hope
and pray that one of these days, we'll gonna have an air-conditioning or a bath tub besides
my baby's crib.  So while watching her sleep, I am also pampering myself. :)

A gift for hubby

If I have to give hubby a gift, I would love to give him this watch box that has a glass top lid. I know for sure that he will love this as well even though he is asking me for a soft guitar case.

I was browsing some online cheap voucher and is tempted  to get another food voucher.. but did not cause I'm out of budget already. I have bought some already this month and I'm keeping it just that for now. But looking at some gifts stuff online feels like I'm a girl getting a Boyfriend Gift Ideas for one year anniversary. It feels good to have a beloved.

Hubby has dry coughs

Hubby is coughing pretty hard and he is right besides me.. even though he is not coughing facing me but still I could feel that he's having hard time since its pretty hard and loud. I don't like coughs and colds and I don't like sickness in general. The thought of hospital makes me ill and I hope I'll never be brought to a hospital anymore and not hubby or any of our future kids also.

I know that hospitals are efficient because they are well organized and they also use healthcare carts for medical stuff so to make their work or services be more efficient. Health carts of course helped them make their medical stuff easy to organize and quick to find. This is actually a must have in any hospitals.

Money and Soul

Got this from my church sunday bulletin article:

Cost of Money
by: Connie Hinnen Cook

How much did your money cost you?
Was the ladder of wealth hard to climb?
Did you stage some attacks,
Perhaps stab a few backs.
Did it take all your effort, your time?

How much did your money cost you?
Was your home full of peace or unrest?
At the close of the day,
Could you honestly say;
That you've given your family your best?

Did you have a nice home?
Did you drive a fine car?
Now you're sis feet below.
Will it get you that far?

How much did your money cost you?
Was that paycheck your only reward?
All those hours of pulling strings,
Just to buy you more things.
But no time for the things for the Lord.

How much you money cost you?
Did you look in  the mirror with pride?
Or did greed run a muck?
For that almighty buck?
Till you put your conscience aside?
Did it cost your soul?
Did you dawdle in sin?

Now your outside of heaven, can you bribe your way in?

My new Cellphone

I love my new cellphone, it's not because its new reason why I love it. I love it because it came from my beloved hubby. I know that it wasn't easy for him to get it knowing that our finances is not getting any better, but still he gets it for in the love of me. I'm not being materialistic here or something its just I needed a cellphone because he got mine.

I just wish I don't need a wireless cell booster now because I believe mine is still good since its  new. I'll just get one when it gets old and needed a booster.

Insurance Information

I think each person needs to be informed about insurance policies or how it works. Many of us are naive about this things reasons why we are awkward to get  one because we don't really know what it is. A life insurance is not only an insurance but also an investment.

There are actually loads of websites where we can learn about life insurance information. Its really good to know how the policies work and get whatever suits you. This thing helps not only us but also our loved ones when times comes that we have to leave them.

Hungry this time :(

I think I need these: mmmm... calories!

Table Rock Lake: A beautiful retreat

A friend and I were talking about visiting some beautiful places down south. We thought of doing this trip through bus ride. Hubby actually does some out of town trips with friends every now and then to escape from the busyness of the city, and our normal way out is a beach place.

We don't have any concrete plan yet about this year trip, but definitely the view would be as outstanding and breathtaking as at Table Rock Lake, and to know about this place better visit table rock lake real estate at Places like this are hard to let go in my mind because I know this is really a great place. If only I could own even just a small space here, I know it would be amazingly awesome. :)

Tele-drama and DNA Testing

As I watched "prime time" tele-novelas on a favorite channel, I can't helped myself from being affected from what happen with the drama programs that I watched.  I can't help but react to the drama. Its crazy to think though that I felt bad about the main character if he's being bullied or being hurt or something.

On one of the tele-drama program; there was this kid that has been separated from her rich parent for along time and was adopted by a poor gay teacher. I was thinking on how could she ever be reconnected with her parents anymore now that things are so complicated.

Well  if this happens in real life only through DNA testings that has been conducted by dna experts of course a parent and a child be reconnected again. Things like this really helps a lot specially with crime cases and other family legal matters.

PR went down :(

Honestly: I was quite disappointed when I saw my page rank went down. Well, I can't blame anyone but myself. I got so busy these past few weeks and was tired and lazy enough to do any  blogging and dropping. Yes, I do visits my blog every now and then but that's it.

Also I was not able to post any interesting and good topic cause I can't think of anything.  I wonder though how google rate a blog site. What's their criteria's and everything. How often they do the rating thing-y. Is it about the visitors you have in a day? or the post you make? or the comments you receives. I don't know and really appreciate if someone would tell me how things goes.

We may all have a lovely day.

It's Final

Six months ago he told us that those who are receiving a monthly allowances will no longer get any because of cross cutting thing-y. So hubby and I prayed about it and let God be God to our needs. Months after months hubby's allowance was still on, and we were very much thankful. But the time has finally and he won't get any allowance from the office starting this month.

Honestly, we area bit worried because the amount hubby gets part a big part of our monthly budget, and now that it's gone only the Lord knows where on earth we would get it. But I have faith that He will never leave us-even in this time of financial struggles. I know He will help us keep us through. If I could only do a payday loan without worrying how I could pay it after I might have done it.

Hopefully the saying that goes "when God closes doors, He will open many windows". I hope that the Lord will open may windows of financial opportunities with us. :)

Online Business

I am starting to do business again, I mean after selling ice-candy last summer that did not click well because of so many people doing it so I stopped the small business and instead switched to making embutido and it is for sale as well. I have delivered eleven pieces today to some people which made me so happy.

How I really wish that I'm enrolled to some online business degree so that it could help me more to make my small business grow big. Although I finishes a business degree in college but I don't get the chance to do any real business reason why I forgot all that I have studied. I was not able to exercise what I have learnt because went into different direction that instead of becoming a business woman I instead I become a missionary which I'm thankful that I did.

With the booming online business nowadays I am actually thinking that what if  I have made myself into business before, is there any possibilities that I could an online business now? I don't probably yes and probably no as well. Well I'm for sure assume that those having online businesses are also doing an online business degree because there is no way they could make it to the top without advance knowledge in doing their business. :)

Food... food.. food :)

As I post these pictures, I am also thinking what might people think. Probably they'll say that "no wonder she double her size in a month." I am a foodie, food is one thing that I love and cooking is one of my passion. Whenever hubby and I went to a mall, we won't leave the mall without visiting one of its food place.

My friend and her mom was at house last night to watch their favorite "tv drama program". It was fun having them around because I have someone to laugh and talk with while watching. Well, we also talked about the buying an lcd tv in the future. As for me I might go for a  samsung lcd screens tv and I will put it in my room so that it I don't need to go to the living room if I want to watch tv and just lye down in bed.

Also when I have the tv in my room I will have the privacy to use it whenever I want to and watch program that I like and not to think what other people might also like.
