blessings by laura story (gives me goosebumps!)

sometimes we forget to thank God for all the blessings that HE gives us, sometimes we are so busy with our lives that we forget to pray, sometimes we are blinded by all the problems that we have and we often question HIM...but what if the "trials of this life" are "HIS mercies in disguise"?


by Laura Story

We pray for blessings
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

'Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
All the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we'd have faith to believe

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not our home

What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise

the web is what you make of it

as the advertisement of google goes - "the web is what you make of it"

i am thankful for the technology that we now have, because i get to see and talk to my family even if we are miles apart. i appreciate it even more because i can talk to them face to face via webcam, i get to teach my daughter how to read, i get to tell them and remind them that i love them so much and that wherever i am, i am always thinking of them =)

on helping...

i always believe that when you help, you shouldn't expect anything in return...

and i also believe that help should only be given to:

- those who cannot fend for themselves (perhaps due to sickness or old age, etc.)

and of course to

- those who are willing to help themselves!

because if otherwise, we are only making them dependent and not self sufficient

as the saying goes:

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

blog some more

1 year?...really?, time does fly really fast...i didn't even notice that it has been a year since i last updated this blog...don't get me wrong, it's not as if i have stop counting my blessings, i still do, everyday...just waking up each morning is a blessing in itself already. i guess i just got caught up with the facebook thingy, the micro-blogging site wherein you could get responses for whatever you post almost immediately (yes, aminin, yun naman talaga ang gusto natin...dahil sadyang papansin ang tao by nature...ahehe). but then again, i still love reading blogs...sometimes i can go on for hours just reading's like reading a book, but a reality book because as you go on, you get to know the person behind the blog, who generously share their thoughts, their lives, it's like you're reading a diary. remember the tv show doogie howser, m.d.? at the end wherein doogie logs on to his computer (blue pa ang screen ng computer!) to write his thoughts (yes i admit, i came from that era...hehe). and so, here i am again, trying to put my thoughts into words writing this blog. and because i can't get over the timeline format of the fb, i really don't, ayoko talaga (did i say it enough already? ahaha!) perhaps i can blog some more (sana!).

i choose to be happy!
