I Don't Think

...we should ever stop encouraging each other

...having an easy life would be wonderful

...we should all have the same dreams

...I will ever stop learning

...there is anything impossible with God

...we should judge each other

...perfection is possible

...I'll ever like flies and cockroaches

...our economy is recovering

...having less means living less in a tiny house is all that bad

...watching the the sunset will ever lose its amazement can ever find yourself when you're trying to be someone else life will ever be boring

...we can comprehend God's love for us.

My Bestfriend's Wedding.

After almost a week of non stop rain, I was so worried for my bestfriend's wedding which will take place in a garden. I was praying hard, hoping that the rain would stop even just for awhile. And thankfully, it did! :)

I arrived early, and went to see her in her room.

I remembered the times when we were seatmates in our Logic class, still getting to know each other. Then we were just inseparable. We'd always be together working in our laboratory, studying in the library, hanging out in her Mom's office, walking along the hanging bridge in Caleruega, crying our hearts out, and just being there with each other.

After we graduated, sure we did have different paths laid before us. I have to help out with the family business, while she worked in a food company. But despite our busy schedules, we'd still make time for each other. And no matter what happens, I know that our friendship would only grow stronger as time passes.

On this day, I saw my bestfriend marry the love of her life. A relationship tried and tested through time. And I can't give her away, than I can give away my heart. I'm so happy for them. And I just try to hold back my tears as to not ruin my makeup (haha!), but I can't help it anymore when I saw her dance with her Dad. It's just love in the purest form.

Best wishes Buddy!! :)

Jean and Debbie. :)

Sunday School Teachers' Outing 2011.

Pardon my absence. Was so busy that I hardly have time to update my blog. :( But I'll always come back here. After all, I love to write so I won't forget. :)

Just this Monday, we had our annual Sunday School Teachers' Outing. This time we went to La Luz Beach Resort in San Juan, Batangas. It was raining cats and dogs during Sunday night and I can't help but think how will our outing will push through. I hardly slept, and when I finally got out of bed around 4am to prepare, it was still raining. We left at exactly 5am, and it was a long drive - 4hours! Amazingly, there was no rain when we arrived, and the sun came out too! :) Twas the perfect weather. :)


My girls - Dianne and Rachel :)


We climbed this huge rock and the view was breathtaking :)

It only rained a little in the afternoon, and on our way home. :) It feels great to be back in the beach, and away from Dramanila once in awhile. :) With the people close to your heart. In this case - my co teachers. Can you believe that I've been with them for 11years already?? Time flies. :) Some people say that maybe I could just take a break from it. But I'll stay. Coz I know that in the end, only what's done for Him has eternal value. :)

Have a happy (rainy) weekend everyone!! :)

Prayer and God's Plans

"If God is sovereign, then he is in control of the details of my life.
If he is loving, then he is going to be shaping the details of my life for my good.
If he is all-wise, then he's not going to do everything I want because I don't know what I need.
If he is patient, then he is going to take the time to do all this.
When we put all these things together -- God's sovereignty, love, wisdom, and patience -- we have a divine story.

People often talk about prayer as if it is disconnected from what God is doing in their lives. But we are actors in his drama, listening for our lives, quieting our hearts so we can hear the voice of the Playwright.

You can't have a good story without tension and conflict, without things going wrong. Unanswered prayers create some of the tensions in the story God is weaving into our lives."

-from A Praying Life by Paul E. Miller
