Random Lessons

I'm currently doing one of my favorite activities: decluttering. ♥
Among the helpful stuffs that I saw were three pieces of paper on which the following things were written:

Random Lesson # 3:God's reign is limitless, not bounded by time and space. The essence of kingship is service. Jesus came to serve not to be served. Therefore, unlike any other king, his kingdom has no end.

How long? Preferably not as long as five years and not as short as one hour. Short courtship makes one "marry in haste, repent in leisure." Long courtship calls for much time, money, frustration, and exercise of continence. 
Qualities. Look for a partner who is good, o…

This Christmas

I remember Your greatness. I remember Your mercy. I remember Your love. As a response, allow me to surrender myself to You - all my desires, all my hopes, everything that I am and I have. 
The greatest gift that You've given me is Your life. Let my life be my gift to You, today, always, and for as long as I shall live. 
With St. Therese Couderc, I declare: 

You've been singing me love songs since the day I was born. As we remember your birth today, allow me to sing this for You: 


Pag-aalay ng Sarili* (Lionel Valdellon)
Panginoong Hesus ako ay nakikiisa sa 'Yong walang hanggan at walang katapusang 'sangkatauhang pag-aalay.
Iniaalay ko ang aking sarili sa bawat araw ng aking buhay At sa bawat sandali ng bawat araw ayon sa 'Yong pinaka banal at kagalang-galang na kalooban.
Ikaw ang naging alay para sa 'king kaligtasan. Nais kong ako'y maging alay ng 'Yong pag-ibig.
