That’s me. I just looks like a dummy.He…he…he…. It was during our actual training “Saving lives on Fire” on our Basic Safety Training with Personal Survival & Social Responsibility or BSST w/ PSSR course. I took this training for me to get a Seaman’s Book. I was suppose to work on board in Norwegian Cruise Line Int’l but unfortunately I wasn’t able due to some circumstances occurred. It might not God’s will for me or it was not yet the right time. I believe all things work together for my own good. I had no regrets for I learned and gained a lot from the training aside of I enjoyed it. My co-trainees were very thoughtful, always giving me consideration and treated me so special because I was the only girl in the group. We’re almost 30 trainees and we had one week of challenges, excitements and fun together.
What is Smart Love? Apostle Paul describes it in Philippians 1:9-10, Love abounds in Knowledge and Insights. I used to read Joshua Harris’ Book “I kissed Dating Goodbye” I got an explanation about what Apostle Paul means by the verses. ” We need to learn to love appropriately, we need to use our heads and test our feelings so that our love is sincere and intelligent, not a sentimental gush which allowing the emotions to dictate the course of a dating relationship. Instead of acting on what we know is right, we let our feelings carry us away.” To truly love someone with Smart Love, we need to use our heads as well as our hearts. I begun to like the book. I got so many lessons about relationships, about life and all is biblical. And this I pray, that my love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and insight and that I would not let my heart control my head; that ye may prove things that excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ. (Phil. 1:9-10) If we want God’s best in our relationships we must be willing to play by his rules.

But i have no worries about it for I know God always keeps His promises to me that He will never leave me nor forsake me. I am happy for I could help my family again in terms of financial & material needs even in a small way. It would be a greener pasture working out there, I believe.
I don’t know why I get sad when I knew that our youngest sister will going to settle down. If ever, she will be the second one in the family to be wed. We are still four older than her who is not yet married. She just graduated & passed the licensure examination for Nursing. I am disappointed a li’l bit for I thought she will gonna work abroad. It would be a great help for herself & for our family too. I want her to learn to stand with her own feet, to be independent. I don’t really know why I feel like this, I should be happy for her instead. She is my vibes among sisters and she is close to me. Maybe I just can’t accept the fact that she will going to leave our family and will going to have her own. But, for sure it has nothing with me/us being still single.he..he..he… It’s my/our choice.
Just last week everyone in the clan got shocked when one of my cousins revealed her secret that she’s pregnant. We’re all worried about how she and her family will going to raise the Baby for she doesn’t have work at all, her family struggling too much financial crisis and the father of her Baby is not with her. Everyone is praying that God will take care of everything. We all know God is so good & faithful even though sometimes we are not. He is still willing to forgive us to all of our sins. We are glad one more angel will be added to our clan.
Rain, rain go away, everyone’s prayer today. It’s now 3 days raining on and off. The weather is very unusual, too much cold, in fact, in Baguio one of the places in Philippines that known for it’s cold climate their temperature is already 7.5*C that makes the cooking oil hard.
Last night, we drove out to fetch my father from his work, we saw how the rivers overflew, how the farms drown in the flood, how the tress fell down and how the water covered the street. The calamity brings a lot of damages. We were almost stuck-up on our way back home for the water level suddenly became higher that our vehicle could not pass anymore. We turned back and found another way out. Thanks God we reached home safely.
Once I had an American guest. After having a nice conversation with him I found out that he is also a christian like me and that we suddenly become friends. And this stuff was given by him. He gave it to me after visiting him in his work place in Abu Dhabi from Dubai. We ate and made a tour in the said place and I enjoyed it. While he was dropping me home we stoped by in a certain store, without my knowledge he bought this stuff for me. He gave it to me when we reached home. He just don’t know how Happy I was for I love collecting Stuff toys. Advance Happy Valentines Day to all!
Christmas is here. These are my gifts to be given away to my god children. For sure they will be happy receiving it. May they feel the essence of christmas and hope by these small gifts they will see God’s kindness to us and will know the real meaning of Christmas. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year to all…
One of the most enjoyable moments I had in Dubai was when I went out with my colleagues for a Desert Adventure. We’re surprised how beautiful & serene the desert was. We can’t imagine we have so much fun in the middle of the sand.
We did enjoy the thrill (Dune Bashing, Sand Boarding and Camel Riding). After a short stop to stretch our legs, we took a break taking souvenir photos of the romantic Sunset.
Our fun wasn’t stop in there. We had some Sheesha, Henna Tattoo & Photographs of the local dress. After a day of excitement, we were entertained by a Belly Dancing Show while we had our delicious Arabic BBQ dinner, tea/coffee, fruits and unlimited softdrinks.
All I can say is..Indeed, it is worth the price. I want to do it again.
I attended Sunday Worship Service & I was so blessed with the lecture given by Pastor Calixto Fermantes about “Poverty”. It was very interesting. I will share it with you so that all of us will be reminded & aware of what to do and don’t to avoid poverty biblically . I learned that violation of God’s words brings financial loss put us into poverty.
