It’s been a while and so many small and big blessings came that they were so many I had a hard time to choose which ones to post. So I decided, I pause for a while and just meditate on those blessings and post them later. To start again…one of the those many blessings is the union of my brother and his behalf.  It was the first time for our family to attend a Christian  wedding and the event has touched the hearts of the family and the guests as well.  Tears of joy overflowed and filled our hearts with smiles.

The wedding tells us that only two words is the most important words to be heard at that time, but those two words will create too many blessings for everyone around. Blessings of joy, of fun, of bonding, of peace, of happiness and assurance that all is well…and that blessed moment is lifted up to Him.  Oh,  what a multiple blessings!

Here’s to your blessed dreams!
and Congratulations to JepNie!

We all have one, or a handful of  that.

Yes, we have a mission in life. That’s what I believe.  We may not ever recognize it but as each day unfolds, we are directed for a life’s purpose,  for a mission.a complaint free world

Just the other day, a very inspiring and motivational friend struck me again with his words of encouragement. I simply notice a purple bracelet on his right hand,  I was about to ask because I’ve never seen him wear such a thing since I met him. But the conversation flow about so many things led me to ignore the thought of asking. Until we were led to be talking about inspiring things in life,  just before we parted ways he gave me this purple bracelet, he put on my left hand and told me that the moment I complain, I transfer it to my other hand. Then it would make me more aware how often I complain in a day. Wow! what a wonderful awareness!

The bracelet is engraved with A Complaint Free World.org. Whoever thought about this thing,  is really blessed to have a mission in life.  My friend told me that we all have a mission and our mission is to change the world”.

Dreamer as he maybe, but who among us never dreamed of a happy world around  us?

Whatever we do, wherever we are, let us wear that purple bracelet not just in our hands , but in our hearts. That makes  one of our mission to ourselves.

Here’s to your purple-blessed day! (~_~)

True Wealth

Nice thought to ponder, a message from a friend:

True wealth is not a matter of bank account and assets. It’s in the values we live and share, as well as the persons we keep in touch with care”.

Have a wealthy day! (~_~)

It’s been on the billboards, on a lot of movie theaters, on the bookstore…on your inbox, wall page and it’s not just a Tweet on the web but it seems like everyone’s tweeting like a bird as they talk so much about it…..”Eat, Love,  Pray”  There’s a book version and a movie version. But what is your “own” version?

These words : “Eat, Love, Pray” came to my mind as a very challenging day surprised me with a-not-so-amazing situation. Someone has thrown us (me and my dear colleagues)  a few statements many would consider such a verbal abuse. Standing up to our spiritual views and beliefs, we opted to stay quiet and just let it pass. At the end of the day, we asked ourselves ” Have we reacted right or wrong?” ….Oh somebody said we have chosen “peace” than”courage”…..it maybe right or wrong, but somehow it has helped each of us to end the day enjoying the blessings of God. We still joyfully eat, we have managed to love…and tonight, we still continue to pray…the same way.

I still can hear God’s whisper for me today:  “Relax, I’ve got everything under control”….what a reassuring tap on a shoulder, right?

This is still a blessed day! (~_~)

Yes, it does!

I have long been wishing that my work will be free from “night duties”. That I’ll be just working the regular working hours so that I’ll be with my family every night. However,  God works so mysteriously!  Tonight is the night! a very wonderful blessed night!…. the first night of the succeeding blessed nights!… After 8 years of waiting for the wish to be granted , it was given to me through a person who’s been a daily challenge for me to like. I was  blessed!…. through this Goliath of my life!…..This makes me so thankful about the guy.

“God, thanks for bringing that person into my life, for the challenges, for the agony it brings for every encounter , every meeting, and for the blessings it has brought me and  for keeping it coming….although through that Goliath….it is still a blessing from You.”

I’ll keep on praying and wishing….for it always becomes a blessings.

Blessed day ever! (~_~)

“…when problems come our way..we fuss, fume, and frown at the daily difficulties–not knowing that a few years later, many of these problems will become our greatest blessings.
All it takes is God–and a little bit of time.”

This is an excerpt from the book of Bo Sanchez Thank God He’s Boss.

I’ve read that line already the other night but it didn’t touch my heart that much as it did last night when I opened again the book and my eyes landed first thing on that same page.

Yes, last night  was an extra blessed night. I’ve finally found out the owner of  that crumpled paper with Godwhispers  on it . https://essenceofblessings.wordpress.com/2010/06/04/whispers-inside-a-crumpled-paper/ I thanked her for that and told her that she was used by God for me to received a daily gift of God’s wisdom through email. I had a great talk with Mona last night, she’s been an angel in disguise. And it happened again.

All of us have some challenges in life .  I shared mine. She said , it is  God’s blessing to me. Slowly on my way to dreamland last night, I was digesting what she had just said, and I realized , it is so true. Because if not of that challenge or our  Goliath (as Bo said), I wouldn’t be seeking for a more spiritual answers to the challenges of life, I wouldn’t have found out about Bo who has great teachings about God and led me back to my spiritual space in a better sitting position so that I’ll be able to have a better view of my Creator, I wouldn’t be able to find out about the angel that God has used to let me know more about Him, and for the second time, He used her again to tell me something  very important, that God has given me a great blessing . It was just covered unjustly, ugly, and so petty, so that when the time has come for me to find out of that blessing, that it will a very joyful moment of realization. which was last night.

I thank God for His love, for his blessings, for His Angel in disguise.  My Goliath is God’s blessing to me.

What a blessed night!(~_~)

I still enjoy coffee, especially when I’m having it with my dear one.  But i don’t drink coffee when it’s too hot , I always wanted to enjoy its warmth as I slowly sip and take pleasure from its flavor and aroma.

As I was delightfully having a coffee bonding moment with my husband ( again at  Cafe 78 Lipa … I like this cozy, cool place)….and as I was taking a full bite of my tacos while waiting for my coffee to cool a bit, like a child we got amazed with the formed foam of cream on top of my cup of coffee….it was like a flower!……we first thought the shop did it in purpose, as their way of making their place a unique one in the midst of the rising coffee shops and restaurant in the Philippines, but they did not, yet it was served with a blossoming smile.  Then I noticed…. my husband and I were just both enjoying the present moment…and I believe it was a blissful one. No stress…but just seeing what is nice in a moment of “now“.  Too shallow some would say, but this makes bonding time healthier.

Take pleasure of what the moment of “now” can give you……Stop for a while and joyfully nourish the present moment.

…and live a blessed life! (~_~)
