Sisterly Love

yesterday, Sis. Mau's big group, which included our group, had a love feast/gathering at Koo's house. :) we were 25 sisters in all. we sang hymns, then Mau shared a few words. we prayed, played Pinoy Henyo and charades, and swam. :) i've always loved swimming. then it RAINED. so i danced in the rain! i LOVE it. :) dinner time. we had 2 big pizzas, pasta (red and white sauce), hotdogs with mallows, roasted chicken, fruit salad, ice creams, and small cakes. :) got home a little late. tired. especially because we have to work the following day.. but a great time was had by all. :) thank you Lord. :)

The Last Song

it's better late than never! :) i haven't got the chance to see this movie as it opened last week; i checked if it's still showing in the malls near my place, but it's out. Shrek is in. haha. luckily, Gateway has it. :) the movie is beautiful. i like it better than Dear John. :) it not only centers on love.. but also on family, on second chances, and moments in life. i could watch it over and over again. :) and this is also a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks' novel, im glad i didn't missed it. :)

"Sometimes you have to be apart from the people you love,
but that doesn't make you love them any less.
Sometimes it makes you love them even more."

"We're not perfect. Any of us.
We make mistakes, we screw up but then we forgive and move forward."

@Wild Ginger, Powerplant

weekend with Grace and Joy. :)

chanced upon Baker's Dozen there and bought Sweet Surrender (frozen brazo) from The Sweet Life by Ange to cheer myself. :)

im so tired. there's always a lot of things to do i don't know what to do first. a lot of things are also happening. one after the other. this song has been playing on my heart today and i want to share it with you. :)

All That I Can Say - David Crowder Band

Lord I'm tired
So tired from walking
And Lord I'm so alone
And Lord the dark
Is creeping in
Is creeping up
To swallow me
I think I'll stop
Rest here a while

And this is all that I can say right now
And this is all that I can give
And this is all that I can say right now
And this is all that I can give
That's my everything

And didn't You see me cry'n
And didn't You hear me call Your name?
Wasn't it You I gave my heart to?
I wish You'd remember
Where You sat it down

I didn't notice You were standing here
I didn't know that
That was You holding me
I didn't notice You were cry'n too
I didn't know that
that was You washing my feet

i love how honest the writer wrote this. he didn't used flowery words to make it beautiful, but instead he told the Lord how he really felt. these days, it's hard to find someone who's true. you know what i mean? someone who'll show you who he really is. without trying to pretend to be someone they're not. as i grow up, i came to realize more and more that life is not a fairytale, nor a bed of roses, or a happy-ever-after. there are trials, painful and cruel realities that you have to face. loss is also one thing that's inevitable. i've come face to face with loss a lot of times and it left my heart crushed. but amidst these things, there's also someone who's always there. it's the Lord. it's during these times that we'll learn to grow as a person, experience Him more, know Him deeper, and it is my hope that i'll be able to be a woman that He desires me to be.

i'll be sharing tomorrow night in our Bible Study meeting. no matter how many times i stand up in front of a bunch of people, i still get nervous. so i would love to ask for your prayer about this. thanks in advance. :)

before i end, here's an encouragement for all of us:

"In light of tragedy, only two things really matter: heaven is real and relationships are the only things that matter this side of eternity."

so there. goodnight all. :)

"A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep. In dreams, you will lose your heartaches. Whatever you wish for, you keep. Have faith in your dreams and someday, your rainbow will come smiling through. No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true." -Cinderella

did you went out and vote today? :) did you vote wisely? i didn't vote. haha. honestly, i don't know who to vote either. let's see who wins. :)

my auntie was discharged from the hospital this afternoon. thank God. :) and i stayed with her the whole day. :) the weather is still HOT. so i took my time showering when i came home. love it!! :) it's nice to stay home and do nothing once in awhile. :)

while checking my facebook account, i received a message from my Sunday School student. it says: "this is my piano lesson teacher debbie" and attached a video of him playing the piano. it's so cute :) and im touched by his sweet gesture. :)

kids.. they always know how to make you smile. it's the little things that we often overlook. :)

May is a busy month for me. looking forward to June!! ;)

Burgoo.. and some.


Mashed Potato Mexicano - freshly cooked potato with cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and pico de gallo.

Taco Salad

New York Steak

hello! :) here are some food shots from a lunch at Burgoo Podium. :) my laptop is alive again and im glad that my photos has been saved. big thanks to Bro. Allen!! :) this mashed potato is the best i've had so far. :) the taco salad is good too, but the steak is so-so. im not a big steak eater anyway. :)


last weekend, we had our annual VBS (vacation bible school) at church with the theme: Take The Plunge. :) it was a fun event for everyone, big and small alike. the decorations in each site amazed the kids too. :) they had a great time playing in the sand box, listening to stories, doing crafts, and playing games. :)

i just came home from the hospital. yesterday, my Auntie was confined and underwent a major operation this morning. it should only take 30-45minutes, but she was done only after 2hours!! the hardest part is the waiting. and instead of 2-3hours in the recovery room, it took her 4hours to be transferred back to the normal room. she was experiencing pains, and feeling nauseated. the doctor said it's because of the side effects of the anesthesia.

she was still sleeping when i left. i lack sleep these past few days, pimples and dark circles start to show again. well hopefully, i'll be able to get some rest tonight. tomorrow, i'll be staying with her again. :) please pray for a fast recovery. :)

thanks everyone! dinnertime now. it's really so HOT. i know i've been saying this over and over.. but the heat is unbelievable. it's killing me. and a lot others. hay. anyway.. that's all for now. :)
