Getting Ready for 2015 :)

It's just the start of the second quarter of 2014, but I am already excited for 2015! Blame it on the Survey for 2015 Belle De Jour Power Planner. :D 

For my fellow bellas, paging Marshee, stand a chance to win your own Belle De Jour 2015 Power Planner by spending less than an hour answering a series of questions that will definitely excite you for the year ahead. :) 

Here's an example: 

Question: 5-10 years from now:
My Answers (top 3): 
  • I would have moved in to my own place/house.
  • I would be married.
  • I would have my own business.

If that's not exciting enough, how about these rewards? :)
  • ALL COMPLETED survey entries by April 14 midnight, will get an AUTOMATIC 5% Discount for online direct orders on one (1) BDJ 2015 Power Planner. =) 
  • The first 500 BDJ girls to answer get 1 FREE BDJ Forget-Me-Not Journal when you order your BDJ 2015 Power Planner online. 
  • The first 500 BDJ girls to complete AND forward this survey to 10 of her BDJ girl friends will get an ADDITIONAL 5% discount on one (1) 2015 BDJ Power Planner (making it a 10% discount total) purchased directly from :) To be qualified, CC (carbon copy) when you forward the survey link to your 10 friends. =) 
  • First Round Raffle (April 7): All those who complete by April 7 midnight get a chance to win one of the FREE 20 BDJ 2015 Planners. 
  • Second Round Raffle(April 14): All those who complete by April 14 midnight get a chance to win one of the FREE 20 BDJ 2015 Planners. (Second chance for those who didn't win in the first round. =)) 
Also part of their tradition is to give out FREE BDJ Power Planner to girls who suggest a brilliant and NEW idea for the planner (something that the team hasn't thought of). 

So go ahead, take the survey, and get ready for 2015! :)

As for me, even this early, I already declare my power statement: 
In 2015, I will dance to the beat of my dreams by doing my best, excel in everything I do, and leave the rest to God, trusting in His will and perfect timing. :)

Hooray for 2014! Cheers to 2015! ♥

Jesus Week 2015: A Time To HEAL ♥

I had the best, most meaningful HOLY WEEK ever, so far (the best is yet to come!). :) Thanks to Joy who shared the Jesus Week poster on Facebook. It was God's personal invitation, and I couldn't thank Him enough for the grace that He also gave me to respond. Everything is grace. It was not just my personal decision to join. It was God's grace that allowed me to. 
So how did it go? Well, as what I have told my friends, it was amazingly beautiful! The experience was priceless! On Holy Monday, I posted Fr. Jerry Orbos' acronym for HOLY WEEK. I experienced all of that and more! :) 
I won't be able to share everything as there is just a lot of personal, intimate encounters with the Lord. But if I were to summarize, it was a time for me to HEAL. :) 
Halt. Indeed, I was able to stop and just rest in the Lord. Before leaving Manila, I have already told myself that this retreat will be all about Jesus (Jesus Week nga e :D). No emails, no texts, no calls. I'll just spend…

Understanding Lupang Hinirang

Every Filipino knows Lupang Hinirang (though some know it better as "Bayang Magiliw"). How can you not know it when it is the national anthem of the Philippines? But do we really mean the lyrics that we sing? Do we understand it in the first place? 

This video has gone viral weeks ago. This afternoon, I shared it to my teammates, and one commented, "Yun pala yun. Ngayon ko lang naintindihan."He immediately downloaded it and converted to MP3.
So for those who have not seen it, once again, here is Joey Ayala's version of Lupang Hinirang. And I agree, you would never want to sing it in another way. (But that's just me. :D) This rendition is simply beautiful. Truly Filipino. :) Of course that doesn't mean we need to revise our national anthem but maybe we can consider about correcting the way we sing it (read: proper pronunciation).

P.S. I read a lot of negative comments on the original video uploaded o…

Thank You, Lord! :)

It has been a long and stressful day (the past three days have been lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng and stressssssssssssssssssssssssssssssful), but You are just so amazing, Lord that I couldn't sleep without telling You how grateful I am. :)
Thank You, Lord for the miracle that You did yesterday. Break even and more. :)
Thank You, Lord for the laughter and stories shared during the post-mission meeting with Team Thailand. :)
Thank You, Lord for Lawrence. He is just the (almost) perfect man. He has his flaws, but they are acceptable; he makes mistakes, but they are all forgivable. There are a lot of men but there can never be anyone else. He's really the one. And You know it very well. :)
Thank You, Lord for giving me strength and endurance each day. :)
Thank You, Lord for the short but restful sleeps. :)
Thank You, Lord for every waking moment and every opportunity that You give me to proclaim Your greatness. :) Thank You, Lord for Your message through Fr. Frank. I heard it loud…

The Holy Spirit*

Reflections from John 15:26-16:4

True friendship is strengthened in adversity. Jesus offers His disciples the best and truest of friends. Who is this promised friend? 
Jesus calls the Holy Spirit our Counselor and Advocate (also translated Paraclete or Helper). Counselor is a legal term for the one who will defend someone against an adversary and who guides that person during the ordeal of trial. The Holy Spirit is our Advocate and Helper who brings us safely through the challenges and adversities we must face in this life. As Jesus approaches the hour that He was to be glorified - through His death on the cross and His resurrection - He revealed more fully to His disciples the person and the role of the Holy Spirit. What does Jesus tell us about the Holy Spirit? 
First, the Holy Spirit is inseparably one with the Father and the Son. It is the Holy Spirit who gives life - the very life of God - and who kindles faith in hearts receptive to God's word. The S…
