For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 8:38-39
Haha, it’s not a big secret that I’m preparing myself for my future. Super obvious naman ata nun. I am physically and emotionally preparing myself for the day that I would have a family, a husband and (I really wish) 11 kids. :)
(haha, Look at the father, he’s wearing glasses. LOL.
But things like family, it’s not an easy thing. You work it out. Pero for me, it really takes more than working it out on the marriage and family life itself. I believe it requires a lot more preparation before you get married. Yes, I think it also goes beyond the time of acquaintance with your future spouse. It starts now, upon the realization that you want the best for you and your family.
(Yes, I want a garden wedding with so many flowers. So many flowers. So many many flowers. Yes, I like flowers.)
And that is why.. for a 2 years, I’ve been preparing myself for the excruciating (but of course with all love and fun) responsibility of HOUSE CHORES.
There’s this one scripture that really struck me, proverbs 31, with the title “The wife of good character.” For the chores part, this is my power verse:
She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants.
She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
(15, 17 NIV)
I have lived a sheltered life, and I was not trained in the house chores. I have a personal yaya, who watches my every move 24/7. So this was something big for me. I knew I had to do this, so little by little I did the chores without them asking. The next thing I know, I am capable of cooking (and baking!), I can make things be in the proper order, I could do the laundry (but not yet sa handwash), and walis walis, etc. I’m still learning the art of ironing (Gosh, I’ve burned too many things!)
Though struggling, I know in the right time I will be able to be strong enough to do my chores, through God’s grace. :) Ayoko namang mabuhay ang mga anak ko na burara at walang alam sa bahay ang nanay nila. Kawawa yun, as in.
1. Bananas are naturally radioactive. This comes from the fact that they contain relatively high amounts of potassium. Specifically, they contain Potassium-40, which is a radioactive isotope of potassium.
2. Over 100 billion bananas are consumed annually in the world, making bananas the 4th…
I respect your decisions, and your beliefs. But I don’t believe in praying for their souls. If we could be saved through prayers, and if by praying for them they will be in heaven despite their sinful nature on earth, then why did Jesus have to go to earth and die?
Why, the God who created this heaven and earth, who made everything through Him, who is powerful and everlasting, who can kill you with just one word, and can save you from death with also one word, why did He have to die? Why?
For God so loved the world, that he gave up his only begotten son, that whomsoever believes in Him shall not perish but will have eternal life. -John 3:16
God saved you through faith as an act of kindness. You had nothing to do with it. Being saved is a gift from God. -Ephesians 8:2
We have nothing to do with whether we will go to heaven or not, we cannot do anything to be saved. We can pray all we want, but we’re still not gonna go to heaven. God saves us through Jesus, through our faith in Him, by believing on the sacrifice that he did on the cross, and by our genuine repentance. If we could be saved by prayers, then it’s like the God we have did something useless by dying for us, since we can just ignore what he did on the cross kasi we can pray naman for our salvation. Nope, I don’t think so.
Anyways, this is my faith. Hate me all you want, unfollow me. But this are not my words, this is not just my opinion. This is God’s word, and I am just telling you what I have read. If you don’t believe what I have preached, then it is not I you have rejected, but it is God’s word. :)
Jesus is the way, the truth and the light, NO ONE comes through the Father EXCEPT through Him. -John 14:6
I have the most amazing parents, ever. Nope, they are not perfect. But we stick together through thick or thin, and we continue to love each other everyday. May pera o wala, tuyo man ang ulam o steak, commute or may kotse, we support each other.
I have three brothers, Web(29), Vince(27), and Louie(22). They are all super macho and very manly. They seldom talk to me about how much they love me, nor do we talk often. But I’m sure they love me. They don’t say it, but they show it in the little things. Like, they buy me crocs or nike, and there was a time my brother gave me a whole bag full of MNG, Zara, and things like that. Haha, though I do not delight on material things, I guess it really is their way of showing me that they love me, by sharing what they have with me. OH! And there was a time I was making pacute to my brother, so he baked for me a triple chocolate moist lava cake. The best chocolate cake ever. :)
Trials will always come, like they don’t help for my education(my dad and mom kasi is already old(60 and 55), and it would have been nice if my brothers helped.. but what keeps the family together is the consistent love and forgiveness.
So, there’s five love languages that people usually use: Time, words, acts of service, gifts, and touch.
My love language in giving out love: Touch and gifts. I am very touchy, but of course there are defined limits. By touch, I mean I usually hug the sad people, pat the back of the top-students, etc. I also love giving out gifts to people, sharing with them my food, giving them letters, sending them MS PAINT pictures that I drew(kasi I don’t know how to use PS! huhu), etc. Ganun ako mag express ng love. :)
My love language in receiving love: I am, most of the time, moved by acts of service. I don’t demand much of people’s time, or their gifts, maybe a bit of words, but I’m usually very happy with acts of service. People who especially go out of their way, just for me, is something I really appreciate.
Ay te. Ang taas ng standards mo. :) Hinay-hinay lang. Baka sa sobrang taas, ikaw ang malaglag sa sarili mong hagdan.
Ikaw rin 'te ang masasaktan pag hindi na-meet ang expectations mo. O kung na-meet nga, bokya pala sa huli. :)
hi anon! :)
Hmm, siguro mahirap nga naman ang standards ko. But it was God who instructed me to wait for *this* certain man who will be more than all I could possibly hope for. He told me that if I just let go of my own plans, he is faithful to reveal and unfold to me His plans. His plans are always to prosper me, and not to harm me. (Jeremiah 29:11)
and if ever WALA TALAGANG LALAKE NA MAKAPASA SA STANDARDS, I am secured. Human love without the guidance of God fades, grows weak, is inconsistent, and will eventually burn you out. But God’s consistent love, it will always endure. I do not depend on human acceptance and love to feel secure. I have God, I have everything I need. God will give me what I need, and if He doesn’t give me one, then it just means I don’t really need one. :)
Siguro it’s the fact na we’re both book-lovers. He’s intellectually stimulating, and he’s even capable of explaining the M theory to me. For an artist, that is quite remarkable. They usually grow within their niche, and it was a first for me to experience having the company of a science loving artist.
And he’s patient. :) I was acting very weird that day (define pagod and puyat and sick), but he kept through with the date.
He’s also very passionate. He appreciates what he has, and fights for it. His love for this country may overwhelm the normal pinoy, but believe me he is just continuing the work we owe to those who fought for the improvement of the future generation.
Beyond the long hair, the glasses, and the nerd facade that he has.. he is actually a super hero. :)
The current state of my love life. (dahil maraming nagtatanong)
Haha, wala akong sasagutin. Daming nagpaparamdam, pero di naman nagtatanong! :)) Ayoko mag assume eh. :)) Okay, sweet ang maraming guys sakin, pero so what? Pano kung mali ang assumption ko? Basta ito lang naman rule ko: Define what you want from me, then I’ll appropriately reply to your eagerness towards me.
Pero feeling ko, marami lang takot. :) Or lahat sila takot? Alam kasi nilang hindi ako mapapa-OO kagad eh. Actually, yun yung first test ko. (define spill!!) A real gentleman will declare his feelings for me, in words and action, regardless kung may pag-asa siya or hindi. :)
Maraming nagtatanong sakin, hindi ba selfish yun? Magsasayang lang daw siya ng oras sakin, eh hindi ko naman daw sasagutin. YUN NGA EH. THATS THE POINT. Ang kailangan kong gentleman ay yung kahit alam niyang wala siyang pag-asa ay mamahalin parin ako ng lubusan. Kasi alam niyang kahit ano man ang mangyari, mawala na ang buong mundo pati basketball, hindi niya kayang hindi ako mahalin. Yung tipong, ako lang talaga. No one else can come close. It’s either me, or no one.
Yun po. :) (haha, first step palang yun! hahahahahaha, can’t settle for something less eh!)
What is one thing that would make negatively change your aspect about your life?
Maraming bagay. Haha! I’m selosa, inggetera, judgmental, SUPER DUPER competitive, at alam mo yun, many things get me down. :)
Pero what I do, is to behold God. The more you behold, the more you become. Pag feeling ko nagiging super Jejemon na ako na walang direction sa buhay, I just go back to God. And eventually I’m reminded na I’m a new person in Christ, na hindi na ako yung dating beth na super nakaka-asar. :)
I delight in God. Lahat ng circumstances nagababago, pero yung joy kay Lord hindi. <3<3<3
