Happy Inspiring Monday :)

I woke up with this song playing in my head: Mahal na mahal kita, higit pa sa iniisip mo. The LSS must have been caused by watching Walang Tulugan last Saturday night. But more than anything else, I know deep in my heart that it was God's "good morning" especially for me. :) Last night, He cradled me to sleep with this lullaby: Huwag kang mangamba, 'di ka nag-iisa, sasamahan kita, saan man magpunta. Ika'y mahalaga sa 'king mga mata. Minamahal kita. Nothing could ever be sweeter than that. Nothing could ever be greater than God. :) 

The first half of my day was spent at Salve Regina General Hospital for my check-up and therapy session. I really thank the Lord for Dra. Sky and for my therapist, Ms. Myles. They are heaven-sent! They take very good care of me and are very much concerned of my well-being. They generously share their time and talent just to help me get better and healthier. I so love them! :)

And to make things even better, I came across this beautiful prayer posted on the door of Dra. Sky's room:

Amen. :)
The other half of the day was spent at the Global Mission Center. But it wasn't just another manic Monday because the Lord kept me inspired and enthusiastic with good music, insightful articles, and short but sweet conversations with beautiful people. :) Nakakakilig lang. ♥

And of course there's this trending topic about Shane Filan, my ultimate crush. :D I didn't make it to his CD signing event at SM Megamall but he will be back for a concert on October 1, and if I'm meant to see him, I know God will make a way for me to be there. :) And maybe, just maybe, God would also surprise me with a ticket to Boyz II Men's concert on September 17. :D 

I got home tired from a long and productive day but Mama told me to check out my room for some good stuff. I saw these and just smiled: 

Thanks, Tito Leo and Tita Lorna for these pasalubong. :)

Ang lakas magpakilig ng Panginoon! 

But wait, there's more! Matutulog na lang ako, may pahabol pa. :D Shane was also featured on Saksi! And that is simply God's sweet way of telling me, "good night!" ♥

Such a Happy and Inspiring Monday! Because I have HIM. Because I have a God who loves me truly, deeply, unconditionally, eternally. :) 

Thank You and good night to You, my Greatest Love, my One True Love! ♥

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*

*Cluster 4 Household Topic
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…
