To be poor in spirit

"But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.' -Luke 18:13

Four months to go!

Counting down for our 2nd year. Pardon me if I'm too excited. I'm so in love with him eh. Hahaha! I love you so much my beloved... Happy 20th today.

Thank You, dear God for the privilege of loving him and being loved by him... It is indeed a gift from Thee! We love because You first loved us! We love you too, Lord. Thank You, for being soooo patient with us.

Fellowship of four

Yesterday was quite a wacky fellowship! Kahit na apat lang kami nagkasama-sama for our Bible study meeting ang saya at glorious pa rin!

* Nakaka-busog ang pansit at biko na dala ni Anne (bday treat nya sa amin). Special thanks to her mom who cooked it for us.

* Super encouraging and humbling sharing time... Na once again, ramdam na ramdam ko na buhay na buhay ang Panginoon sa buhay ng bawat isa. ;-)

* Nakaka-bless yung study and discussion time namin sa James 4:13-17, and praise God for Mich sa pagfacilitate for the first time! Glory to God! Next time uli Mich ha? Hehe.

* The three of us (Kuya Ron, Mich and I) prayed for Anne for her birthday and gave her a birthday note/wish (she is holding it here. Parang gift checks lang! hehe).

* At ang adik mode na photo-opt namin... (more pictures in my multiply).
this was mich's idea

eto rin!

eto mine and kuya ron's idea

okay, normal mode na!

Ayun lang. Just want to share kung gaano kasaya sa growth group namin. Hehe.

FYI: Matatapos na kami sa 'Walk d Talk' series namin, based on the book of James. Do join us in praying what would the next study series we'll take... Baka mag-Colossians naman kami... Still discerning God's leading for the group.

dear sis...

Today, May 15, 2010 is my dear sister-in-Chirst birthday. ☺

+During an event at church. We were still praying about our discipleship then.+

I never really thought of discipling you. I was thinking about referring you to somebody else... I was praying for the Lord's guidance to lead me to your dicsipler...

Malay ko bang ako pala yun?!Hahaha! He spoke to me clearly one time, at talagang wala na akong kawala-- Bakit pa daw ako naghahanap ng ibang "makiki-journey" sa iyo eh pwede naman ako at ako naman ang GG leader mo. At parang ayoko pa daw nung una kasi natakot ako. Nakakatakot kaya na may madadagdag sa list na titingin sa akin closely, sa aking walk, sa aking mga sablay, kaartehan and kadramahan... Pero, ayun na nga-- discipleship is not about me naman eh, it's about Him and us being conformed in His likeness. And I thank Him for this wonderful and humbling privilege...

Indeed it was an answered prayer. For both of us. I'm glad I obeyed. I'm glad He brought us together in this journey. Like what you said na ang expectation mo sa relationship/journey na ito ay para ma-realign ka ng tuloy-tuloy kay God. Ako din, that's all I want! Saya yun, for us to be after His own heart...

Ayun... Maligayang Bati Sis! Mahaba-haba pa ang byahe natin... And I'm very excited to see you grow, kasi for sure along the way ako rin mag-go-grow! So as I've said sa SMS-birthday greeting ko sayo: tuloy lang! faithful ang Panginoon! Mahal kita Anne Bulsico!

+Christmas Fellowship at a Korean BBQ Resto.+

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God. -Philippians 1:9-11

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
-Philippians 4:4-9

(picture of mama and papa in Baguio)

Mama is not a perfect mom but I love her and I'm sure I wouldn't want to trade her for another person/mother in the world.

Happy mother's day to you my dear mother, Len Sabio. I love you and I thank God for you!

Happy mother's day also to all the mothers in the world!

Yes, I'm renovating my blog. I started last Saturday pero di pa ako natatapos! Medyo busy week eh. :-D

Nagulat lang ako when I checked this last Monday, ganito hitsura nya from our office:
akala ko nung una nawala yung blog entries ko. yun pala:

kailangan i-scroll down pa! ampangit tuloy... anu ba yan!


Anyway, konti na lang matatapos ko na ito... Di ko pa lang tlaga mabalikan. Sa ngayon.

Check it out and let me know what you think. ;-)

Special thanks pala kay ms.Trish na nagbigay sa akin ng link ng blog templates.

Somehow, I hate legal holidays

Labor day holday kahapon dito sa Pinas. Minove uli ni GMA para ma-enjoy nga naman ng mga manggagawa. Pero di kami kasali dun kasi we are not following local holiday. Pero di yung ang dahilan kung bakit "somehow" I hate it... Kung tutuusin nga, ayos din kasi kung hndi double pay, 130% pay (ata) kami kasi may pasok kami. Hehe!

I "somehow" hate it because I don't get to see beloved. And I miss him terribly!

Focus, focus!

This happened to me, yesterday... Uhm, or shall I say-- it happens often:

"Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, "Lord, save me!". -Matthew 14:29-30

I let myself be distracted and irritated... As in, inaalis ko kasi talaga ang focus ko kay God kaya sumasablay ang attitude ko towards things...


At ni hindi ako nakalapit sa Kanya sa kahihiyan ko (meaning di ako nakapag-devo kahapon because my heart was not right before Him) pero napaka-faithful pa rin Nya and reminded me of this before He allowed me to sleep:

"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." -Matthew 6:33

At nag-contemplate lang ako sa words Nya na yun on my way to work. While singing this in my head (and playing it in my mp3):
In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand...

And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand...

Tumingin at nag-focus kasi ako sa earthly things at kaya nag-worry ako... na-neglect ko tuloy Sya... Kaya pagdating ko kagabi sa office, before I start working, I looked it up in for a better/bigger picture of what He is trying to tell me...

25"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

28"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
-Matthew 6:25-34

So there, thank You, Lord!

And I'm so sorry for looking away... ='(

Thank You for saving me from drowning.
