In Saying Yes to the Lord

i posted months ago about always saying Yes to the Lord. i had said yes to the Lord again to serve in the St. Scho LSS last weekend and also as a worship leader for the BLD Singles Night last monday even if i think i am unworthy to do those. last saturday, i woke up very early coz i am really really nervous. but the weekend did just great. i had a very responsive lambs and they are all blessings. and last monday, i reported for work only in the afternoon but my officemates asked me if i'm okay coz i am unusually quiet. honestly i didn't notice that i was quiet. i was just really nervous. i even texted my BLD friends. and Praise God! the worship had been i guess a blessing to a lot of people. even if i had prepared a prayer earlier, when i started to pray infront, words just came out of my mind. it is really true that i should not worry coz the Holy Spirit will supply us with the words. the BLD Youth Ministry was totally amazing. at first, we thought it's the Youth prayer meeting coz there had been more Youth than the Singles. thank you Youth. love ko talaga kayo.

as i was really worried last monday, tita gene texted me that i would be blessed since i was continually using my God-given talents to serve Him. honestly, i'm not waiting for any blessings to come that's why i'm serving Him. i just wanted to be obedient to God. i told you, that's what i learned from the Youth Ministry, to be obedient to God. anyway, i was not expecting any blessing and most of all not so soon. then yesterday, somebody texted me asking me something. sobrang galing lang! coz i was totally not expecting it. everything is not sure but it's a start. and i'm just thankful for the opporunity/chance given to me even if it's not certain yet. just pray for me please that God will grant it to me if He wills it. actually, i'm hoping for Him to will it. but if not, i hope i can accept it and that i would be patient enough to wait for that something better that is in store for me :)

**i've added a daily prayer portion at my sidebar. it's the prayer i send out to my friends every morning. i hope it would be able to bless you as well.**

high IQ = liar

the other day, as i was channel surfing the show in the national geographic channel somehow caught my attention. it featured kids who were inside a room and was asked not to take a peek at the toys at their back. most of the kids looked and when asked afterwards if they did look, they all denied it.

based on this, an expert mentioned that those with high IQs tell lies to avoid punishment. then they showed Bill Clinton denying what happened to him and Lewinsky. hehe.

is that true? high IQ people don't tell lie? i don't tell a lie. so does that mean i have a low IQ? i beg to disagree! :)

birthday fever

i feel that my bday is already near. but i won't tell you when it is. hehehe. actually, it's still far. but i'm already thinking of what i'll do for my bday. am i going to have a party again? i want to but my budget says otherwise especially with the upcoming weddings of my cousins. so, for my friends, no celebration this year, okay? :)

last week, i saw my sis ainah to give her my bday gift. a golden bag.

nonsense post. hehe. i just want to ask, what's your plan for your bday? and what do you like to receive? don't give me world peace! and if you'd like to tell me, when is your bday also?

and happy birthday ainah!!! :)

i see myself as beautiful. but when others (especially specific persons) keep on saying negative things about you, then somehow, you start to believe otherwise. it might be a joke or they're just teasing you, but if these same people keep on repeating it, and they never say anything positive to you. they never compliment you but just see faults, then i guess i can take only much. i can be patient, but my patience has its own limitations.

am i being too sensitive? maybe. but maybe the reason for this is because, just for once.. can i be appreciated by these same people?

preggy or not

i rode the MRT once again this afternoon on the way to ayala and on my way home. since i rode from quezon avenue station, i got the chance to sit. and also i do the round trip on the way home (meaning i rode in ayala going to taft then didn't leave the train). whenever i'm lucky to be seated (and not sleeping. hehe), i always look around if there is a pregnant woman. because if i see one, i would stand up and ask het to sit down. hello?? what if she'll give birth that instant coz of stress on standing. and she's carrying a heavy load, so make her comfortable. anyway, awhile ago i was debating with myself if the lady standing infront of me is pregnant or not. if she has a baby or she only has a big tummy. hehe. bad! but honestly, i am always troubled because the one standing could be pregnant. but i'm embarassed to let her sit and find out that she only has a big tummy. it would be an insult for her. *sigh* how will i know if there's really a baby inside?

how can you say that you've truly forgiven a person?

if you compare my relationship with my dad now and last year or two years ago, it's totally different. it's like i made a big change. i now talk to him more often. i can kid around him. i can make some requests from him. before, if i need something, i'll not ask from him. i would find another way to get it without getting any help from him.

last year in my sharing, i said that i'll forgive him. i have been sharing my life story thru Youth Life in the Spirit Seminars and Singles Encounter, but i guess it's only now that i can say i have forgiven him. but to be really honest, i don't know if i did. or i'm just putting everything behind. i hope i have forgiven him. and i just hope he would not abuse my forgiveness.

25 Going 30

do i look like i'm 30 years old? i won't dent my age when i'm 30. but i just can't accept that i look like i'm 30 now.

last weekend i was in occidental mindoro for work. and somone there thought i'm already 30 years old!?!?! i'm just 25, turning 26 in a few months time. i think i can accept if someone will tell me that i look like 27. but 30?!?!! i'm used to people telling me that i look a year or two less my age. that's why i'm really shocked when i was told that i look like 30. that's five years!!

it really made me think if i look old now. they told me it might be because of my body. (rey, wag nang kumontra) but still.. how bout my face? waaah!!! that happened last saturday, and until now i can't get over it :(
