Today determines Tomorrow!

There was a man browsing in a store. He was shocked to see God selling...

Man: Lord, what are you selling?

God: Whatever your heart desires.

Man: I want peace of mind, happiness and freedom from all fears for me and the whole world.

God (smiling): I don't sell fruits here son, only seeds!

Galatians 6:7 says "Whatever a man sows, that he will reap."

The seeds we sow today determine the kind of fruit we will reap tomorrow!

The Young Man Dies

These past few days, I have been struggling with growing and putting childish things behind me. What to do, Where to start, What to change and How do I do it?

All these questions were answered when I bumped on the Joshua Harris'es post about the song of David Wilcox entitled "Young Man Dies". And I was hit head-on or shall I say heart-on!

He could picture you a perfect sunrise
in the middle of your darkest night.
And he could take a sip from someday,
like he had a secret well.
He could listen to the voices calling
from a distant time will tell.

It's you in that picture where you're looking far away
like you hear a whisper of the things
you'll know someday.

But back then your heart was hungry
for something hard to find; you were
just holding out for someday,
but you've left that pain behind
'cause he walked you through those mountains,
for as long as he could bear.

He never reached the fountain,
but he could take you there.
The young man's dying
'cause in the years it takes to make one man wise,
the young man dies.

By David Wilcox from the album Underneath

There goes the answer! For me to successfully leave behind the childish person in me, the young man must die.

I Like Facebook

Facebook is really just an epitome of a fast-changing World. In this case, the World Wide Web. I mean never was a dull moment since the time I started my Facebook life.

I can still remember the very time I laid my eyes on Facebook, I was totally culture shocked. Wall? Shout-outs? News Feed? Those were all jargons. We call it "nosebleed". LoL!

After a while I got used to some of the features and is still starting to check the others when the season of games, Farmtown, Restaurant City, Typing Maniac came. I can still remember when somebody just left a "lost cow" in my wall and my friend was like asking me if I can adopt it. What??? What am I going to do with that cow? And other friends started to just send me invites asking me to plow their farms, check their restaurants, even fight me in Mafia Wars. It all again started to be overwhelming. Fortunately there was the magical "ignore button".

And the rest is history (that includes the so-called change in the privacy settings that honestly I didn't notice. LoL!).

Anyway the real reason I'm posting this is the new change FB added to their interface. We can now "like" even the comments of our shout-outs! I'm sure you've noticed it now.

Well aside from that I'd like to invite you to FOLLOW Your Daily Word to get updates from this blog right in your Facebook wall or if you want to get to know me personally add me as a FRIEND.

If there will be more changes coming, I will never be one of those who will quit. I am one of those who will explore and enjoy instead!

Pursue Love

Go after a life of love as if your life depended on it—because it does. 
Heb. 14:1a (The Message)

Even If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere. 

So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love

Happy Independence Day Philippines!

I am Proud to be Filipino!

Happy Independence Day Philippines!

Happy Father's Day Pa

My father died when I was 2nd year high school. He didn't die of sickness or plane crash. He died somewhat a miserable death which is something I can't be very honest in here but one thing I can say, it was truly Painful.

I was not so close to my papa. It was my Ate (older sister) who was always beside him and shared his laughters. In fact it was her who was most affected next to my mom when he passed away.

It's not easy for us the children. It was worst for my mom. But thank God we were able to pull it through and all of the children are now all professionals (a PhD on Education, a Teacher, a Nurse and an Electrical Engineer).By God's grace and by Mom's determination, we were able to do it.


Up until now even though it has been somewhat 12 years now, I still miss him and think of him. How I wish he was there when I finished High School and College helping my mom in giving me my awards and medals. How I wish he is here with us, I'd surely tour him around Asia with mom. How I wish he had the chance to see his grandchildren: CD, Sarah and Yafit. I bet he'd love them and spoil them just like what I'm doing. How I wish he's here with me teaching me the do's and don'ts of getting married. How I wish I have told him about God's love and the salvation He has prepared for him. How I wish he's still here. How I wish I still have my Papa.

He may not be the perfect father out there but he's the BEST for me! If I'm given the chance to choose a father, I'd still choose him. 

Papa,wherever you are if you can read this I just want to say I love you so much. I remember a time when I really needed a white polo but it was already late and I really need it the next day. You woke up so early and knocked on the only store we have in that rural hometown to buy me one. I remember you waiting outside of our house angry because I didn't go home for lunch. I remember you buying me a cap and a basketball to teach and encourage me to play. I remember a time that you invited your friend to guide and teach me how to draw even though I wasn't the best artist but you surely lifted my self esteem. When Mama left for a conference or something and you were left to prepare for our breakfast to go to school, I remember you cooking while cleaning while waking me up. I remember you got so upset that you threw water at me just to wake me up. (I think that was sweet. Lol!) Pa, kamaayo nimo nga amahan. Wala koy lain pang pangayoon sa usa ka amahan: naa na nimo tanan. Apil na ang diabetes ana. hehehe. Pa, gimingaw gyud ko nimo ug ang akong pangandoy nga magkita ta after aning kinabuhia. Yes Pa, I love you so much and how I wish I can make you feel that today. Happy Father's Day!

Panatang Makabayan | Happy Independence Day 2010

There is now a new version of the Panatang Makabayan but I prefer to post the old version as I think (even though it's longer), it's full of love and patriotism.

Panatang Makabayan ng Pilipinas: old (original) version

Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas.
Ito ang aking lupang sinilangan.
Ito ang tahanan ng aking lahi.
Ako’y kanyang kinukupkop at tinutulungan,
Upang maging malakas, maligaya at kapakipakinabang.

Bilang ganti ay diringgin ko ang payo ng aking mga magulang.
Susundin ko ang mga tuntunin ng aking paaralan.
Tutuparin ko ang tungkulin ng isang mamamayang makabayan at masunurin sa batas.

Paglilingkuran ko ang aking bayan nang walang pag-iimbot at nang buong katapatan.
Sisikapin kong maging isang tunay na Pilipino,
sa isip, sa salita at sa gawa.

I just came from the Asia Conference and one of the great things I've learned was the teaching of A.R. Bernard about us created in the likeness of God and that we truly are the Image of God. And because of that we become Better Christians, Better People, Better Citizens. In my case, Better Filipinos.

It's almost our Independence Day and I want to take this chance to refresh all of us with our Philippine Patriotic Oath (Panatang Makabayan). Even though there had been several changes with it (e.g. newer version and it being no longer required after the singing of the National Anthem), I think though that we as Citizens of Heavn (being children of God) we ought to be blessings to our Country as well while we're still here on Earth.

Let's all take this time to remember to pray for our nation. With the new president, let us pray that our nation will soon see More Job Opportunities, Improvement in the Economy, Lesser Corruption, Fair Judicial System, Healthy Government, and Happy People. Let us pray that God will remember, heal and bless our nation!

Let the change start from us.
