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

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him."
- 1 John 5:14-15

Nakuha ko kay Bunso

Sipag ni Bunso eh... Hehe! Kaso wag ko daw ipagkalat, so okay fine! :-}

Anyway, I learned about this from him:

Your rainbow is shaded red.


What is says about you: You are a passionate person. You appreciate energetic people. You get bored easily and want friends who will keep up with you.

Find the colors of your rainbow at

I took the quiz, tinatanong ko pa rin ang sarili ko-- totoo ba ito?! Ayos lang. Anyhow... If you want to, go ahead and take the quiz. Hehe.

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

(nakuha ko yung picture dito.)

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

(PS... natuwa ako sa picture mo na yan, "nagtatago" ka pa rin! hehe)
