Thankful Thursday #39


Today, I am so thankful for a great 2010!

This year has been full of adventures as a family.

My hubby decided to pursue his full-time ministry as a pastor and we also decided to homeschool our kids. It has been adjustment phase for us but thank God, it has not been that difficult!
Hubby was diagnosed with Diabetes but thank God that its not yet too late.
Hubby and I both got hospitalized midyear but thank God, it wasn't very serious and we both recovered from Dengue fever.
Thank you Lord that even if it sometimes gets really tiring, you are always there to refresh us and remind us of your everlasting and unfailing love.

Happy new year to everyone!
I pray that as a new year is about to start, we would all intentional live our lives for the glory of God next year!

Karaoke Thoughts

Just the other night, we attended a Christmas party and they brought a karaoke machine to the party. Filipinos love singing and music for karaoke is usually part of a celebration. Whether it is for a simple gathering or a birthday party or a Christmas party. Singing by the attendees of a party is already a standard in holding successful and entertaining parties. And Karaoke singing is accepted in any social class, whether you are from the upper class to the middle class to the lower class of the society.

I am not really a fan of Karaoke. Maybe because I don't really like singing in public anymore. I used to sing when I was in high school until I was in early college but I just stopped singing in public. Anyway, I wondered if Karaoke singing was only popular in the Philippines, but I was surprised when I looked for Karaoke on Wikipedia, I noticed that Karaoke singing is also popular in other Asian countries like Taiwan, Japan and Korea. They are sometimes more known as
"karaoke boxes". In North America and Europe, private Karaoke rooms are more common in Toronto, Los Angeles and San Francisco. I think these places are populated with many Filipinos and therefore could be a reason why Karaoke is becoming famous in these places.

Today, I am so thankful that we are celebrating Christmas together as a family!
Another Christmas together is something that we often take for granted... but this year, I am really glad and thankful to the Lord that He allowed us to spend one more year together, under His care and grace.

As we celebrate Christ's birth this holiday season, may we always remember that the true meaning of Christmas is why we can all celebrate together with love and joy in our hearts.

To God be the Glory!

Thankful Thursday #37


Today, I am so thankful to celebrate another birthday! As I celebrate my birthday, I am just amazed at God's love and presence in my life. I acknowledge his greatness and I know that without Him, my life would be meaningless and pointless.
I am a testimony of God's love and blessings!
To God be the Glory!

WFW - Proverbs 10:2


This is something that we are teaching our kids. We don't need wealth that comes from wrong ways.. God shall provide for our needs- we need to put our trust in Him!

Thankful Thursday # 33


Today, I am so thankful that my other blog, The Mommy Journey, is included as a finalist in the Philippine Blog Awards 2010 under the Best Parenting and Home Category. I am so honored to be nominated and included in the finalist. Ever since I started blogging 2 years ago, I have never thought that I would be receiving such an honor. I just wanted to share experiences and bring mommies together through an online community when I started the Mommy Moments meme.
I also wanted to encourage all those moms who are facing the same challenges as I was.

I thank the Lord for blessing me with so much.
To God be the Glory!

WFW - Psalm 145:14


When we fall, we just need to call unto Him, He will never let us down.
What a great reminder for me today.
Thank you God for being there!
