I Am Snow


You Are Snow



You are peaceful and calm. You are able to enjoy each moment.

You have a pure, gentle spirit. People automatically trust you.

You have a playful, adventurous spirit. You still feel like a kid.

You are able to find the joy in any situation. You are blissful.

Looking at the Sky on Friday - Sunset at Marabella Resort

Photobucket

This is the sunset over the top of Marabella Resort in Antipolo, Rizal. I've attended the wedding of my niece Crisna and can't resist to take a snapshot of this beautiful and captivating scenery. I love sunset and whenever I see good angle I took pictures just to remember the glorious beauty of God's creation.

God Changed My Life

I was reminiscing about 17 years ago when my soul is searching for a kind of spiritual fulfillment, at that time I can’t fully understand what I’m seeking for. I don’t want to attend the regular mass anymore because I can’t seem to feel a personal closeness to God during those ceremonies. I started to frequent adoration chapel instead of going to regular mass and there I found peace and felt closer to Him. But it doesn’t end there because I seek more. Then one relaxing morning while I was having breakfast with my brother we had some sharing on God’s word and it has become a habit for us every morning, I was on an afternoon shift then so I guess it fits us well.

That word sharing extended to an invitation to attend their church fellowship and that first Sunday that I attended the fellowship service marked my birth renewal spiritually. I finally found what my soul is seeking for, my spirit was renewed and whole being was changed day by day through God’s help. Being a born-again Christian is not a bed of roses as you’ll have persecution on the way from your friends, relatives and sometimes from your loved ones. I was lucky to have a family that understands me and we all became born-again Christian.

The road led me to a simple life that centers on God’s word depending not on man’s reasoning but on His wisdom. Simplicity deprived us of the things that we grew up on like extravagance, vices, spending on traditional habits like fiesta and some other things that we don’t actually need in our life. I had a change of wardrobe and physical looks, change of lifestyle, change of priorities and a completely changed perspective in life. There are a lot of criticisms but the glory of living my life with Jesus paid it all.

School Shopping

It’s going to be a busy week ahead of us as my two girls will be going to school next week and our weekend on this coming Saturday is of course a special as it’s my dear mom’s birthday. We didn’t invite anyone but I know many would be there for her birthday. We’ve finished buying complete school supplies for my three kids and they’ve already sorted out their new school things.

They’re actually excited about opening of classes and I think parents are more pressured whenever the classes opened. You have to allocate budget for school supplies, bags, shoes, uniform, books and tuition fees. It’s a good thing that I have saved my online earnings for the previous month that’s why I don’t have to get it from our monthly office salaries.

We had our Sunday fellowship in the morning and during lunch break we headed to SM to buy shoes and bags for my two little ladies, of course Josh was excited too. I was glad that I was able to get good item discounts and deals, I got 60% off on limited stocks on the chosen items of Ruth and Gen, just the right timing. Happy about their new school bags and shoes we dropped by Jollibee to have some ice cream and ice craze.

Getting Through Major Decisions In Your Life

When I want something to happen in my life or I want to decide about things I always ask God for His signs. I know that everything you asked and prayed for as long as it’s for the glory of God and it’s not bad He’ll give you what you want. God knows everything and He knows when it’s not for you so its best to pray and ask for the four factors to help you get the right decision.

The four factors that must be carefully thought of and wait for are the Sign, Providence, Open Door or Open Heart and Circumstances. I’m sure with these four factors in consideration you’ll get through major decisions in your life. I just had mine.

Walk With Faith In Your Heart

Walking doesn't always mean walking with your feet as you can walk without legs but with great faith in your heart. A friend shared this site to me, it's the testimony of a person who was born without arms and legs but who conquered all challenges in his life especially the challenge of being physically disabled for life.

Nick Vujicic gives his inspirational testimonies on how God has made a very lucky man despite his being disabled. The joy of having Jesus in his life made him COMPLETE. We are a lot luckier than Nick but do we for just a moment thanked God for all the blessings that He has given us? I was moved by his stories and testimonies. As a born-again Christian I also witnessed God's loving hands on us during the trouble times of our life when Mom lost her eyesight. Now my Mom is a living testimony of God's miracle. All praises to Him.

I'd like to share this one and be inspired.

Mother's Unconditional Love

Motherhood is a tough 24-hr job: No pay, no day-off, most often unappreciated and yet resignation is impossible!


glitter-graphics.com

I got this message on my mobile and it’s one of the many messages I received this day, all greeting me a happy mother’s day! Being a mother is really like that it’s a tough job you have the responsibility of enriching your child’s wisdom, of bringing up your children as good Christians, of taking care of them through their life and loving them without expecting in return. My own Mom did all that to us and we’re very thankful to God for giving us not the riches of this world but a good mother who loves us unconditionally. Happy Mother's Day to my dear mom and all of the great moms out there!

Courtship Exaggerations

There are more ways than one in making us say yes when we're courted by persistent suitors. Ways of men can be conservative, persuasive, sometimes cool and others were exaggerated. Having worked in a male dominated company in my first years of working exposed me to a lot of my friends' way of making their courtship successful.

I actually find it funny sometimes as most of the guys in my work are my real friends and I know some of them are not serious. Though I must admit there are others who are sincere with their feelings.

One statement that I found really funny are the words 'You make me forget how to breathe'. These are the words that my friend wanted to say to one girl in our group and the guy really feel it. He told me that he can't breathe whenever the girl is around lol! Lucky that the girl didn't say yes or else he'll forget to breathe when they're together hahaha!

A Dreamer Or A Doer?


You Are a Dreamer



You are primarily concerned with possibilities. You tend to be a fanciful person.

All of the world's opportunities sometimes overwhelm you.

You are obsessed with ideas and tend to be a big thinker. Theories interest you greatly.

You crave intellectual stimulation. You are drawn to a philosophical way of life.

Are You a Dreamer or a Doer?

This test interests me a lot, though I know upon seeing the question that I'm a dreamer I still proceeded with it and there I had it Im really a dreamer. I love beautiful ideas it excites my world, I always like to try if the things I like are possible. This is a good test, try it friends!

We've Made It Through!


Really time runs so fast and I can’t believe that we’re already married for 13 years, lucky number for me because we’re still happy together and still in love with each other. He’s still loving and sweet as ever!

What’s happiness to me? Happiness doesn’t mean you don’t argue sometimes, it doesn’t mean that you’re both perfect in all ways. Happiness is seeing your partner’s weaknesses and still loves him. That’s what makes life worth living for, the realization that even if your husband is not the best or not Mr. perfect you still want to be with him and care for him up to when your hairs are all gray and white.

What makes marriage lasts? There are three factors – love, respect, trust – we often heard it on seminars but we never really paid attention on this. Through the years that we lived as married couples and as parents to our three kids I realized the importance of respect and trust as lack of these two can overpower love and can lead to a broken marriage. Above all these God is the major factor of successful relationship. Make Him the center of your marriage and you’ll end up as a happy couple.

Summer Relaxation At Pansol

We’ve arrived early yesterday at Villa Rubi Rosa Resort just after the sun shines on the mountain of Calamba. It was a promising day for us to get relaxed in the lukewarm water of the resort. We always hire private pool resort for a more secured swimming and we don’t strangers swimming with us.

We had fun, not only but also the elders who also had their own set of games in the pool. Actually they acted like the little kids out there in the water.I promised myself to take a break from the kitchen after lunch so I cooked all the foods needed in the morning. My kids enjoyed the pool and they only approached me whenever they feel their stomach wanting some food. I was at their beck and call and they’re very happy about it. Josh learned how to dive that’s why he told me it’s his best swimming outing ever! Funny kid!

Anyway, here are some snapshots for viewing:

2nd Blogsversary

I’ve celebrated my second year anniversary with blogging last April 28. It started out one afternoon two years ago when my bestfriend JennyL coaxed me into opening a journal of my own. I was in their internet cafĂ© then and it seems so nice venturing into a seemingly exciting online hobby. Had I known that it would lead me into a new perspective in life I would have started it earlier. Somehow having a site of my own help my dream of writing materialized.

Having a blog leads the way for me to share my thoughts, my dreams and my life with Jesus. I started in my very first blog my Race Corner which paved the way for a life outside my office. It’s a respite for me, a breathing space between my household responsibilities and office work, a place where I can share everything I want to. After 2 months I opened another site which I dedicate for my spiritual thoughts and everything that proves that life is indeed A Beautiful Life.

I didn’t stop there as I wanted my own domain and that leads me to opening my first domain ever discussing my life’s journey and sharing all Moments of My Life. This is the blog that became my main site and that blog has helped me augment my family’s financial status. I know God has helped through all this giving me wisdom on writing. When I decided to resign from my 16-year job to have more quality time with my family I opened My Crossroads with the inspiration of dealing with the major decisions that I made with my life.

With all these blogs that I’ve shared with my friends I’m happy to be a part of my visitor’s life. Hope I’ve imparted some inspirations on their lives and be a channel of blessing.
