Jingle Bell Rock and Themed Christmas Parties this 2013

Music please - 

"Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun.."

Tahanan ni Maria

"Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat." - Mother Teresa

Saturday, November 30, 2013 marks the cycle-end of our Connect Group - which we decided to celebrate with the elders of Tahanan Ni Maria.

Aunthology: Ocean Adventure

Hi Ho! Off with the nephew (on their fieldtrip) we go!

I love animals and the ocean but this experience made me appreciate God's beautiful creations all the more.

What time is it?? #AdventureTime
A sleepy "before" selfie in the bus so early in the morning. :P (Freshness reference before we wandered back and forth to watch the different shows.) #defensive haha!

Hey There Li'l Red - Halloween 2013

MySnS Enchanted (Dark) Forest Edition - Completed.

Where everything from the office decorations to our costumes have been pretty much last minute.

We've only started preparing the second floor hallway (our side of the office), a day before the event. Feeling "left out", it was only after lunch that we decided to join the Halloween "merriment" and bought several materials to use (a deliberate contrast to the decorations upstairs - yes, dark forest was our theme version haha). We'd say the result was pretty much awesome - given the lack of time and budget we have. Woot! :D

Love Poem

I came to know the first few lines of this poem from one of the romantic novels I read when I was in high school. Or maybe it was an excerpt from a letter my friend gave me back then. Now I'm not really sure - but either way I love this poem.

Love by Roy Croft

I love you
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;

I love you
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can't help
Dimly seeing there,

And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple.

Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good.
And more than any fate
Could have done
To make me happy.

You have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.

You have done it
By being yourself.
Perhaps that is what
Being a friend means,
After all.

Yes, a throwback picture of me and the boyfie - we're best friends after all! :)

Work. Pray. Love.

"How did it get so late so soon?" - Dr. Seuss

How true. Imagine we're already on the second brr-month, next thing we know its Christmas!

And it was an extreme busy work week for me - lotsa meetings and presentations. But we did it! We survived! Thank You Lord that all the hard work did not go unnoticed. Yikeeeee! :)

23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Colossians 3:23-24
New International Version (NIV)

This Is Love

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
New International Version (NIV)

Did You Get What You Prayed For?

Have you ever wanted something so bad, you yearn and pray for it over and over, that it frustrates and even hurt when it feels like nothing's happening?

I did.

I wanted an escape and I wanted it fast. I was desperate. I prayed for it, wrote it on my prayer requests and even asked friends to pray for it - week after week. But it wasn't happening.

And it was in my desperation that I came to read this book. "Did you get what you prayed for?" by Nancy Jo Sullivan and Jane A.G. Kise. 

excerpts from my favorite chapter
To be completely honest, I still want it - but only in a way. I want it to happen but through God's will and in His perfect time. 

What changed?

My heart. I chose to trust God more. To rely, NOT on what I think I deserve but in His scandalous grace instead. To wait with hope, knowing that He is working.

"Trust makes all the difference when you are in a time of waiting."

Nothing to Fear

Thank You Lord for mid-week breaks at The Feast (Alabang)! #WFA

For the dreams You planted in my heart and for the assurance of an awesome life. Whatever comes my way, with You here beside me, I know I have nothing to fear. I trust You Lord!

And Chris Tomlin's "Sovereign" song says it all. <3

P.S. (for Photo Shoot haha!)
Happy Birthday to our feast builder, Bro J Yogawin! Here's us obviously happy getting a group photo with him. :D

Instagramified "wacky" pic haha!

"All that I love in my hand - and they're all made in candy."

A recent photo posted in my Instagram account. I love these not only because they're cute and are indeed candies, but what each symbol reminds me :)

  • Smiley = Happiness
  • Rainbow = Hope
  • Stars = Good Friends
  • Butterfly = Beauty of Life
  • Koala (furry animal) = Love
  • Clover = Good Luck
