Tough Day!

I had a tough day today. I woke up having a bad headache, but I had to accompany my husband for his endoscopy appointment. I was so dizzy, and nauseated. It was a bit a relief on the other side of it because if ever I would feel worst, I can just go to the emergency room...gessh! It's really very uncomfortable for me at that moment. I was praying so hard. The nurse called me to follow my hubby to the pre-operating room, and I prayed with him again. I had to go back to the waiting room to wait for the procedure to be done and another 1 hour for my huubby's recovery. I was just like groggy and sleepy on the couch.

Anyway, the doctor spoke to me and said hubby is doing well and recovering. I still have to talk to the doctor next week for his follow up appointment. Thank God! We were able to go back home the same day.

Manila Ocean Park!

This is one big, good, curious catching news that I've read from the news today. I love aquarium parks, I have had several when my hubby took me to several big ocean parks and aquariums here in the US.

Now, this is one good thing that will make me go back to the Philippines once more. For sure, we wouldn't be missing the chance to get to see the place. Good for our nephews and nieces too :) They are one of the few reasons why we keep on going back to the Philippines as well.

How I wish we could see the highlight of the opening on December this year. For sure this would be a BIG's really good since it would be a big oceanarium, attached to a commercial complex building.(hotels,mall,boutiques, etc..)

It's a world-class marine park, in Manila. :)

My Birthday is still extended! :)

We were a little bit late for church this morning, but we were glad to see our brothers and sisters in Christ meeting us. It's always a warm welcoming for us.
We love our church, and although we seldom see our church bretherens, and as much as we wanted to see and be with them because of our travels, we both feel with my husband that we are always being blessed to have them. In return of the blessings that we are having, I devoted my time to build our church website, and still am currently the website administrator of the church. It's a service I am doing for the Lord, and no matter how busy I am with some other things I need to do, I still am putting this task among my priorities , one way of serving God.

By the way, if you happen to be on the area, please feel free to visit our church and I can assure you there's a warm welcome waiting for you at the door :)

Here's our church website: Laurel Church of God (Laurel, Maryland)
Feel free to contact the webmaster (me :)) or sign on our guestbook.

Anyway, after the worship service, snacks were provided as usual. I was surprise that they bought a cake for me and everybody was singing for me "happy birthday." I then saw my husband holding the cake for me infront while everybody were singing...I was touched, and was so thankful. I really felt so blessed, and thanking the Lord for giving me another wonderful year of life.

My husband told me, I have a one month birthday celebration, so that means I still have a week for more surprises? LOL!

Hello folks. I decided finally to stick on my current template. Instead, I thought of getting new blog which I can update regularly. I have some few up and running but I am lagging behind updating them. I just thought of deleting them and choose a better hosting domain.

I keep on getting blogs, but I am ending up neglecting them, so what the heck am I doing? :(
I have analyzed this is not a good move. I would rather get one or couple of blog sites and keep them active as much as possible. In that way, I can work on the links and getting a high PR would be a bonus. I am not up to chasing high PR though. Sometimes, I don't believe it's accurate. Although some sponsors prefer higher PR, it's still is not a hindrance in doing the paid blogging hobby. As I've said, if you get the touch of having a high PR, it's a bonus. (still wondering how that works...except that the lower the number you get, the higher your PR. )Make it a one-digit number and you belong to the top 9. :))

So much for that stuff...meantime, it's time to work!

"Banana Heart"??

It was pouring hard when we arrived home in Iloilo. While hubby was looking at the window, he was intrigued by a banana tree bearing the blossom. I told him it's edible and is delicious and tasty. He became so much interested and said it's his first time seeing it. He took this shot.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was telling him how is it called..."banana heart", banana blossom"??? I guess there's some term better than that...My mom interruptedly said it's called "puso ng saging", which made hubby's tongue ran twisted, LOL!

Reasons God Permits Problems in your life

This is actually an email sent to me by a sister in Christ. It's worth sharing, just in time for Thanksgiving, I believe.

1. God permits problems to DIRECT you.
Sometimes God must light a fire under you to get you moving. Problems often point us in a new direction and motivate us to change. Is God allowing this situation to get your attention? "Sometimes it takes a painful situation to make us change our ways." Proverbs 20:30

2. God permits problems to INSPECT you.
People are like tea bags ... if you want to know what's inside them, just drop them into hot water! Has God tested your faith by allowing a problem or two into your life? What do problems reveal about you? "When you have many kinds of troubles, you should be full of joy, because you know that these troubles test your faith, and this will give you patience." James 1:2-3

3. God uses problems to CORRECT you.
Some lessons we learn only through pain and failure. It's likely that as a child your parents told you not to touch a hot stove. But you probably learned by being burned. Sometimes we only learn the value of, money, a losing it. "It was the best thing that could have happened to me, for it taught me to pay attention to your laws." Psalms 119:71-72

4. God permits problems to PROTECT you.
A problem can be a blessing in disguise if it prevents you from being harmed by something more serious. Think about something you may be going through at this very moment… HOLD ON! BE STRONG! "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good"... Genesis 50:20

5. God permits problems to PERFECT you.
Problems, when responded to correctly, are character builders. God is far more interested in your character than your comfort. Your relationship to God and your character are the only two things you're going to take with you into eternity. "We can rejoice when we run into problems...they help us learn to be patient. And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady." Romans 5:3-4

Here's the point: God is at work in your life-even when you do not recognize it or understand it. However, it's much easier and profitable when you cooperate with Him.

Let's do lift our hands up to Him for Thanksgiving!

Back Home in Maryland :)

I am glad to be back home. After that long hours on the plane (actually, 21 hours, including connecting flights), I was exhausted and barely had no sleep on the plane made me so groggy and sleepy. After getting home later that night of November 19, I just laid down on bed and I slept like a log! :)

Well, I ended up waking at 3am, and can't go back to sleep again. I bet I am still adjusting my sleep routine. Gosh, it's a little bit weird seeing myself going and moving all around the house as early as 3am!

It's really getting cold during the night, and I need to move more actively to get some warm up. Now, I got to wear socks again most of the time.

Thanksgiving is just a night sleep away. So, I am still busy as a bee! And still a birthday celebrant with so much work to do inside the house. I just fought boredom and tiredness by singing happy birthday to me alone. Hubby had his greetings earlier today. {wink}

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Having fun in my homeland! :)

I am so thankful to God, we arrived safely in the Philippines 11 days ago. I know I am a bit delayed updating, but I find a bit challenging getting closer to the internet these days. Upon stepping on Manila on November 3, our itinerary was followed and we started to get busy, visiting families, buying some stuffs for wedding preps, and hubby had to do 4 essential things for the wedding which was done successfully as well.

Now, we are in Boracay, having fun! Hubby's liking it, and so am I :)

It's our second day today, and mostly cloudy and raining at some times, but we had a nice afternoon swim because it was not sunny. We don't have to worry about sun burns.

Next itinerary.....island hopping! Must be good and exciting seeing God's wonderful nature at sea!

Til next update. have a blessed day everyone :)
