It is the season...

Behold, a child is born!

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." -Isaiah 9:6

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. -Jeremiah 29:11-13

Merry Christmas and a happy new year everyone!

Update: My Ultrasound Mammotome experience

I'm sorry if I failed to update some of you...

Here's what happened-- hindi po natuloy ang medical procedure ko nung December 8, 2009, 2pm sa Medical City.

At sa totoo lang, para na akong sirang plaka kasi ilang beses ko na ito naikwento sa mga tao sa office at sa iba sa church. Hehe. Pero oks lang, tandang-tanda ko naman kasi kung ano nangyari. So here goes...

Nakasalang na ako sa operating room/bed...
- The Surgeon/Doctor told me that I will be given local anesthesia. Ang ikinagulat ko nung sinabi nya na kada bukol tuturukan nya (ouch!) and I guess isa yun sa nagpakaba sa akin.
- First shot of anesthesia: I remember the doctor told me calmly-- "Okay this will sting ha." And it did, pero natiis ko naman. So after the shot, I tried to stay calm. The anesthesia will make me numb naman anyway!
- And now, the time has come for my surgeon to cut me in the area where she will have to place the thing (heck, di ko alam kung ano tawag dun! LOL) na mag-va-vacuum nung bukol na tatanggalin...

***to be continued...

Know that the Lord is God!

Just want to share this and ask na rin for your prayers... Hehe.

"Know that the LORD, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture
-Psalm 100:3 (New King James Version)

I will undergo ultrasound mammotome breast biopsy (see more info below) next week, December 8, 2009 around 2pm.

Do pray for me and with me.

Salamat sa mga naitext ko na previously about this na patuloy ang pananalangin for me.

I'm confident that I will see more of His goodness. Ü

How a Breast Biopsy using the Mammotome® System Works

Here's what you or someone you care about can expect when undergoing a breast biopsy using the MRI, x-ray, or ultrasound Mammotome® System:

Preparation for the procedure
1. Patient positioning depends on the imaging method that is used. Under ultrasound imaging, a doctor will obtain images of the breast tissue while the patient lies on her back. In stereotactic (x-ray) procedures, the patients lie facedown on a special table. The woman's breast protrudes through a hole in the table's surface, where it is lightly compressed and immobilized while a computer produces detailed images of the abnormality. In the case of MRI imaging, the patient lies face down on a breast coil, and the coil is moved inside a magnet for a computer to acquire images.

2. The patient is given a local anesthetic (injection) to minimize any discomfort.
Biopsy Procedure with the Mammotome® System

3. Once the area to be biopsied has been located and mapped, the Mammotome® probe is inserted through a small ¼-inch incision in the breast.

4. When the probe is positioned at the area of concern, it gently vacuums, cuts and removes tissue samples for examination. The samples are passed through the hollow chamber of the probe into a collection chamber. Because the Mammotome® probe is directional, multiple specimens can be collected without having to remove and reinsert the device.

5. To continue to monitor your breast health following a breast biopsy using the Mammotome® system, the doctor may place a small stainless steel marker or a collagen plug with an embedded titanium marker to identify the biopsy site. While this tiny marker is undetectable to the patient, it enables a physician to keep track of an abnormality in future mammograms.

6. The Mammotome® probe is removed after the samples have been collected, and the single incision is closed with a small adhesive bandage.

Built To Last

It was really a privilege to be a part of it- Built To Last Discipleship Conference - Nov 13-14, 2009.

I was so blessed and was really ministered to in a super-duper personal way...

Right now, I am just still in awe kung paano ginamit ng Panginoon si Rev. Edmund Chan (including the workshop facilitators: Dra. Yoyit Roldan and Rev. BJ Sebastian and the the Praise and Worship time) to speak to me in a manner wherein HIS message was really resounding! I was empowered, awakened, rebuked, encouraged, affirmed and challenged!

The next step for me is the doing what was told... To obey His instruction!

"It is in the doing our lives are changed." -Rev. Edmund Chan

(I got the picture above from RJ Yu's website )

**I will work on updating this post with more of my personal notes during the conference soon.

This is just very timely... Since may mga IMPORTANT and CRITICAL na mga bagay-bagay ang ni-re-reveal sa akin ang Panginoon these past few weeks (or past month?)...

Uhmm, saka ko na ishe-share ang mga detalye. Eto muna---

"Stability is the mark of a mature Christian"

God has given us peace so that we can be stable even in the midst of hard times. In John 14:27, Jesus says, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives."

In this verse, Jesus tells us that He has left us his peace. Jesus' peace, however, isn't like the world's peace, which depends on your circumstances; rather, God's peace is internal. God's peace allows believers to be stable even in the midst of hard circumstances, difficult trials, and uncertain times.

It's no wonder Paul said that he could be content, i.e. stable, in all circumstances: "I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want." (Philippians 4:11-12). What was Paul's "secret"? "I can do everything through him who gives me strength" (Philippians 4:13).

The key to contentment and stability is living in, through, and with God in everything. Like Paul, a mature Christian is able to remain content and stable in all circumstances.

Jonah 4 (New American Standard Bible)

Jonah's Displeasure Rebuked

1But it greatly displeased Jonah and he became angry.
2He prayed to the LORD and said, "Please LORD, was not this what I said while I was still in my own country? Therefore in order to forestall this I fled to Tarshish, for I knew that You are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, and one who relents concerning calamity.

3"Therefore now, O LORD, please take my life from me, for death is better to me than life."

4The LORD said, "Do you have good reason to be angry?"

5Then Jonah went out from the city and sat east of it. There he made a shelter for himself and sat under it in the shade until he could see what would happen in the city.

6So the LORD God appointed a plant and it grew up over Jonah to be a shade over his head to deliver him from his discomfort. And Jonah was extremely happy about the plant.

7But God appointed a worm when dawn came the next day and it attacked the plant and it withered.

8When the sun came up God appointed a scorching east wind, and the sun beat down on Jonah's head so that he became faint and begged with all his soul to die, saying, "Death is better to me than life."

9Then God said to Jonah, "Do you have good reason to be angry about the plant?" And he said, "I have good reason to be angry, even to death."

10Then the LORD said, "You had compassion on the plant for which you did not work and which you did not cause to grow, which came up overnight and perished overnight.

11"Should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know the difference between their right and left hand, as well as many animals?"

God's Chisel

Nakaka-encourage ito...

...I know I need to be always reminded of this.

(ps. medyo nahihilig ako sa mga video clips lately ah. *wink*)

No one else will do!

This was part of my prayer early this morning:

"I want to just hug You and be hugged by You... all the time!
No one else will do...
No one else will satisfy...
The more I think about You, the more I am wanting You!
I love You, Lord and I'm so sorry for all the things I've done against You..."

I am still on my vulnerable moment. Please continue to pray with me and for me. God is good and in control!

Ang hirap! (hehe)

Trials and Temptations

2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; 8he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.

9The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position. 10But the one who is rich should take pride in his low position, because he will pass away like a wild flower. 11For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will fade away even while he goes about his business.

12Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

13When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. 15Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

16Don't be deceived, my dear brothers. 17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.

I have mentioned before that our Growth/Bible study group (Connect Agents' of Change or C.A.C.) is going through a series study on the Letter of James. I lead the group in studying verses 2-4 last September 5, 2009 and verses 13-18 last October 17... And I have been telling them that I am experiencing trials and temptations myself (well, lahat naman tayo diba?) and I am having a tough time. Sobrang first hand application sa mga lesson namin ang pinagdadaanan ko. But He remains faithful, nakikita ko ang work Nya and He really is up to something... that I know for sure.

In the mean time, please include me in your prayers... Thanks and God bless!

(PS... I will share some personal notes on our series study some other time. Very interesting ang Bible study namin ever! Feel free to join us every Saturday 6pm at GCF Ortigas.)

An old one

But this made me cry... Back when I first read it and today when I read it again...

(I don't know why pero bigla ko na lang naisip na maghalungkat ng mga lumang email).

A part of Mama's email to me - Thursday, 13 January, 2005 7:19 PM

"I'm glad though that I can share my thoughts with you.
(I just don't know if you can fully understand how I
feel.) I thank the Lord for your life and pray that
you will do all you can to seek the Lord so that He
will make your life productive...just as He promised.

There may be things that we don't understand, things
that we don't like to happen to us; yet they're
happening. All these are not hidden from the Lord. I
am confident that He has a higher purpose for allowing
us to go through all of the difficulties we are

Remember I may love you but the Lord loves you more
and He is able to do so much more than I can ever do
or imagine.

From Thess (co-blogger)

I've been following her blog for quite some time now. At ngayon ko lang narealize na wala pa pala akong post nya na naipo-promote dito. Hehe.

So here's one: Is Someone Obsessed With you?.

At oo nga, gaya ng sabi nya-- may mga ilang statements na exaggerated pero nangyayari naman tlga.

I remember tuloy what JESUS said:

Simply let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No'; anything beyond this comes from the evil one. -Matthew 5:3

Saturday, October 3, 2009

Kahit ano pa ang mangyari...

Indeed, He gives and takes away!
But my heart will choose to say, Lord, blessed by Your name! Ü

Singing it over and over

...again and again!

I know I posted it here already pero gusto ko pa rin sya i-re-post. I want to be always reminded of HIS grace... His grace that is more than sufficient! Naiiyak, nahu-humble at nao-overwhelm ako sa message ng song...

My faithful Father, enduring Friend
Your tender mercy’s like a river with no end
It overwhelms me, covers my sin
Each time I come into Your presence
I stand in wonder once again

Your grace still amazes me
Your love is still a mystery
Each day I fall on my knees
Your grace still amazes me
‘Cause Your grace still amazes me

Oh, patient Saviour, You make me whole
You are the Author and the Healer of my soul
What can I give You, Lord, what can I say
I know there’s no way to repay You
Only to offer You my praise

It’s deeper, it’s wider
It’s stronger, it’s higher
It’s deeper it’s wider
It’s stronger, it’s higher
than anything my eyes can see

cry baby mowd

Ayun, so naiinis lang ako sa sarili ko at sa mga kapalpakan ko.

It's that time of the year again... and I soooo hate it!!!

(bakit kasi ganito ang initial reaction ko sa mga multiple failed audits...? Though I admit that this is one area that God is dealing me with. See this related post from last year.)

But then again, I know I need to apply this...

 2My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

 3Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

 4But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. (James 1:2-4, King James Version)

and this...

 20For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. (James 1:20, King James Version)

So much of our GG's "Walk The Talk" series... Advance lesson and first hand ang application ko...

So help me God!

(Ayun, gusto ko lang ilabas sama ng loob ko...)

Hindi talaga lahat ng "development" ay nakakabuti. Nakakalungkot.

"THE government was warned 32 years ago that ceding control of urban development may have adverse consequences, such as the devastation experienced by the metropolis on Saturday..."

Let's continue praying na makaahon na lahat ng nasalanta ni Ondoy and pray na sana mas maging handa na tayo since may paparating na namang bagyo (Pepeng).

Heart Breaking Weekend

ONDOY: Rains were constantly pouring down all night. As all the waters were pouring down into nearby creeks, canals and rivers, the banks started swelling up, spilling back all that water onto the surrounding areas. Hard hit were Marikina, Cainta, and areas of Pasig, then the areas of Makati, Mandaluyong, Manila and Quezon City. Just a few hours into the afternoon, the rest of the city was submerged in water.

 15And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. (Psalm 50:15, King James Version)

Let us continue praying for everybody, lalo na sa mga nasalanta ng bagyong Ondoy (Ketsana).

At kahit ano pa man ang mangyari, let us remember that the Lord remains sovereign!

Marking our...

+Taken @ Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf - Ortigas Park - Sept 21, 2008 +

Today (09/21/09), marks one year of God's faithfulness to us.

I am so glad "We love because He first loved us" (1 John 4:19). And I am so excited to see how God will move sa buhay natin (as individuals and as a couple) these coming years...

Hindi ako magsasawang sabihin: I love You and you, more and more each day!

Salamat po sa mga naka-alala sa amin; nag-greet and nag-pray for us on our special day... You know who you are! Ü

I'm discerning God's will.

I have to make a decision on two things on or before Sunday (September 20, 2009). These are things that is evidently for the Lord (I know that for sure). I could have said YES right away but then I know in my heart I need to pray about it, seek God's will, search my heart and all that...

All I want is that I will do His will for me and for the ministry for His greater glory.

And so I say to Him:

Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. -Psalm 43:3

ATC Photo Shoot

Photo Shoot tlaga? LOL

Eh kasi naman yun ata ang naging pinaka-highlight ng aming Grand-Mini-GAWAD-Batch-OwTri reunion last August 16, 2009 sa Alabang Town Center.

Naunahan lang ako ni timo na i-post etong mga pics sa multiply.

The following photos are courtesy of kuya Joel Bugayong. Salamat kuya sa pag-share. Kaaliw tlaga!

Pictures from my camera can be viewed here .

Here goes:

Kuya Joel, Me (holding our bathch pic ) and Timo

Now with Kuya Rasty. Eto ay habang inaantay namin dumating yung iba

All boys. As you can see, now with Doc Arjay (na fresh from his board exam)

Nakisuyo kami sa tindera ng candy to take this picture

Pati sa escalator oh!

Eto naka-tripod na kami at naka-self timer. Now with Angge

May intruder yang pic na yan eh, buti natakpan! hehe

At Pancake House (just like last time sa Gateway. hehe)

Writing some notes for everybody

Kanya kanyang basa kami oh (candid yan! LOL)

Picture muna ulet bago kumain

Ipakita ang pasalubong from Louisiana (hindi po Laguna ha, USA po)

Eto na ang simula ng "photo shoot"

Haggardness! Eto ata yung 5 seconds timer

Mga hindi napagusapan at napagisipang pose

Hala sige... Hahaha! I like this! Last pic with Doc Arjay

Nakaharap kami nito sa escalator na pababa

Can you see the people at the background? Nahihiya na kami nyan...

At sa sobrang "kahihiyan" nagtakip na kami ng mukha! LOL

Pero tuloy pa rin po ang "photo shoot" di ba?! Hahaha!

Sumobra ang pagkaka-zoom-in ni kuya Joel, noo lang tuloy nya ang kita. LOL

Mga sulat namin sa isa't-isa kasama ang aming mga paa, hita at binti

According to heigth daw

At patuloy po rin po kami sa "kahihiyan" namin. Hehe

Our last stop, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf treat ni Kuya Joel

Nakakatuwa talaga (kahit bitin) ang aming pagsasama-sama.

Para po sa inyong kaalaman, kami po ay 42 lahat sa Gawad batch 2003 pero ayan, yan lang kami nung Aug 16, 2009, anim! Hehe.

Nakaka-miss yung iba pero super enjoy at no dull moments pa rin kami ever... Hanggang sa muli mga ka-G force '03!

And btw, Congrats sa #1 VetMed board passer na si Doc Angge at thank you din sis sa dinner treat.

Congrats din kay Doc Alyn and Doc Arjay, kelan kayo magtetreat? LOL

Minus the Chorus

(I don't agree with the Chorus kasi, but I sooo love the other parts/stanzas and also the instrumental... hehe... Soobrang cheesy!)

"What does your love mean to me
Its something I can't answer easily
Just like the air that I breathe
You fill me up inside, you give me all that I need
Like a bird flying high on a summers day
You're the wind that carries me away
To a place where you and i will always stay forever...

Longer than poets will rhyme
Girl my love will burn for you until the end of time
If I should die before tomorrow comes
I wont regret a single day, because I had your love
Must be somethin' in the way you say my name
It takes away my worries and my pain
Girl I know we'll make it through the rain together...

Like a river flows and a flower grows, my love for you will never fade...
Like the sun will rise in the morning sky you know that i am here to stay forever...

The song reminds of God's love for me... More than anything else...

For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave. -Psalm 86:13

But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. -Psalm 86:15

We love because he first loved us. -1 John 4:19

the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. -Genesis 2:7

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. -Isaiah 40:31

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 8:38-39

Ayun... So amazing!

I am the worst person I know

(napakalalim na buntung-hininga muna...)

I am the worst person I know, kasi alam ko sa sarili kung ano ang mga desire ko na hindi pleasing sa Kanya, at nahihiya talaga ako. Sigh. Minsan nasasabi ko na lang na "Lord, uwi na lang ako dyan para matigil na ang mga sablay ko..." Pero sino ba ako para bigyan ng instructions si God? His ways are not my ways, and so His plans!

(Sigh ulet)

I am struggling and in pain pero God is able to uplift my spirit sa pamamagitan ng Word Nya, praise Him for that! And so I want to share my devo for the past few days...

Allow me to quote this, from Experiencing God Devotional by Blackaby:

"Sin breaks our relationship with God; it severs relationship with others as well. Broken relationships are the epidemic of our day. Sin alienates family members, separate friends, divide churches, and destroys marriages. sin creates mistrust, jealousy, hatred, and greed, all of which devastate relationships...

Only Christ has the remedy for the disastrous effect of sin on human relationships

God lead me to read the following passages:

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. -1 Corinthians 10:13

Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. -Isaiah 59:1-2

(I think i have not mentioned here that I have been reading and studying the Book of Psalms since July)

I also read Psalms 37:12-40. These are the verses that I took note of (as in kinopya ko sa aking journal):

23 If the LORD delights in a man's way,
he makes his steps firm;

24 though he stumble, he will not fall,
for the LORD upholds him with his hand.

30 The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom,
and his tongue speaks what is just.

31 The law of his God is in his heart;
his feet do not slip.

34 Wait for the LORD
and keep his way.
He will exalt you to inherit the land;
when the wicked are cut off, you will see it.

39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.

40 The LORD helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.

Grabe ang Psalm, I am having so much of "taking refuge in Him" and I am loving it! Madalas din na nakikita ko rin ang sarili ko at sitwasyon ko sa mga sinulat ni King David and I really feel God is closely and personally speaking to me... Praise Him for that!

So ayun! (Sigh ulet ako) ...

Kuya Kevin, posted an article entitled "Self Deception" at nakaka-relate po ako. (Sigh for the nth time).

Love is patient,
Love is kind.
Love does not envy,
Love does not boast,
Love is not proud.
Love is not self-seeking,
Love keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Love always protects,
Love always trusts,
Love always hopes,
Love always perseveres.
Love never fails...

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Baby Sager

I miss spending time with you and I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating your birthday (Aug 31). Mwuah-mwuah-mwuah! Hehe!

"Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:

He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun."

-Psalm 37:3-6

The Greatest Love of All

"This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."' -1 John 4:10

Even prior to attending the Singles' Conference and more so after the event-- I have been pondering a lot about being consumed with the wonderful truth that: JESUS LOVES ME!

Allow me to share to you some of my random and personal notes on Love Matters: More Than Just Romance singles' conference retreat...

Remarks by Dr. Luis Pantoja
- Romans 13:8-10
- Love is more than just romance, it is indeed a command.

"Passionate Love for God" by Mr. Dennis Lim
- Matthew 22:37-40
- Commandment is a directive; it was given by God for the good of His people
- John 3:16
- 1 John 4:8
- 1 John 5:3
- For God to be your god, you must be close to Him.
- How much is being asked from me? The answer is: all my heart, soul and mind. Or in other words, ALL OF ME!
- The world tells us to love ourselves but the Bible tells us to die to ourselves.
- It is in knowing God that we can get to obey Him and enjoy it!
- Jesus prayed and so should we.

Message by Dra. Aurorita "Yoyit" Roldan
- Whole Person includes:
Self + Others + Work + Play + World + Spirituality = WELL BEING

"Live to Love, Love to Live" by Atty. Marc-Fabian Castrodes
- Joshua 1:8
- When Atty Marc asked few people what "success" is, I worte this: It is when I am doing or have done what God wants me to do. It is being at the center of His will.
- We all have different definition of "success".
- Love is the secret to prosperity and success.
Love and anger are extremes of the "same" feelings.
- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
- Lack of trust is when: you want to do it all. It shows that you don't trust the people you are working with.
- There is a difference between denial and overlooking: You are in denial when you cover the conflict/sin. You are overlooking when; there is conflict/sin and yet you choose to forgive.
- As much as possible, live at peace with everyone.
- Romans 5:8
- A life that is not lived with love is a life that you will not love to live.
- When it is hard to love, be patient! Be patient with God, with yourself and with others.
- There is love and stability in a life that is so secure in God.
- Be consumed with God's love!

Most of these thoughts I have shared to my Buzz Group members (see our picture below) and also with my Connect family and because nga I want to be just consumed with His love, I am sharing all of these now.

Grabe, I can't help but be amazed... Jesus loves me this much:

(I draw this while Pastor Lito Villoria was giving his message during the last day of the retreat)

And so as a commitment, by His grace, I will:

"Love the Lord my God with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my mind and with my strength... And love my neighbor as myself."

And of course, here are some photos:
