Sa Tamang Panahon ♥

Last Friday, while Dra. Jes was busy taking care of my two front teeth, I was busy taking notes from Eat Bulaga's Kalye Serye. :D As usual, Lola Nidora's words of wisdom were noteworthy. I particularly liked this: 

“Walang maiinip sa taong tapat ang hangarin. Walang susuko sa taong totoo ang tibok ng puso. Ang pag-ibig na hinihintay ang tamang panahon, ay pag-ibig na magtatagal sa mahabang panahon.”

Speaking of "tamang panahon," a lot of songs have already been written about AlDub but this has got to be the best so far (at least for me):

Good job, Sid Chiong! Long live OPM!

Naligaw na tingin sa hindi inaasahang pagkakataon
Daraan lang sana saglit nang ika'y aking makita't
Biglang nahulog na lang
Nahulog na lang

Biglang bigla kay bilis ng pangyayari
Tuloy tuloy di mapigil ang damdaming
In love na in love na in love na in love na agad

Subalit ang tadhana ay hindi nakisama
Marami ang di tayo maintindihan
Ba't sa isang iglap tayo ay nagmamahalan na
Malabong maipaliwanag
Ang malinaw lang... 

Kahit na anong hirap ang abutin
Kahit 'pagtabuyan pa ng paulit-ulit-ulit
Ako'y di mapapagod at maghihintay sa'yo
Hanggang sa tamang panahon

Hindi man sumang-ayon ang araw at buwan
Kahit si lola pa'y kumontra hindi ko uurungan
Lahat ng hamon ay madaling lampasan
Basta't sa bawat oras ang iyong ngiti'y masilayan

Sinta, kahit na ayaw pa ng aklat
Pagbigyang ang mga palad natin ay maglapat
Makukuntento na lang muna sa iyong tingin
At kailanma'y hindi magsasawa na sambitin

Kahit na anong hirap ang abutin
Kahit 'pagtabuyan pa ng paulit-ulit-ulit
Ako'y di mapapagod at maghihintay sa'yo

Kailan ba, kailan pa, kailan nga ba

Kahit na anong hirap ang abutin
Kahit 'pagtabuyan pa ng paulit-ulit-ulit
Ako'y di mapapagod at maghihintay sa'yo
Hanggang sa tamang panahon

Kailan ba, kailan pa, kailan nga ba
Ang tamang panahon

The best things in the world are always worth the wait. Everyone is bound to be perfectly happy, "sa tamang panahon."

Been playing this song since this afternoon. Lakas maka-LSS. Interestingly, while I was typing the lyrics and listening to the chorus for the nth time, God made His presence felt. It was so strong to be missed. Thus, I listened more intently. 

Kahit na anong hirap ang abutin
Kahit 'pagtabuyan pa ng paulit-ulit-ulit
Ako'y di mapapagod at maghihintay sa'yo
Hanggang sa tamang panahon

The message became clear. While we may be waiting for someone to come or something to happen, God also waits for us to come to Him (Isaiah 30:18). He won't force Himself to us. He will just wait until we're ready to accept Him. And He won't get tired of waiting. No, He won't give up on us. Because He loves us too much, He believes we are worth the wait. ♥

Kahit na anong hirap ang abutin - even if it means crucifixion and death

Kahit 'pagtabuyan pa ng paulit-ulit-ulit - every time we sin and reject His love

Ako'y di mapapagod at maghihintay sa'yo - because true love perseveres

Hanggang sa tamang panahon - until we are united with Him... for all eternity


Wala ng mas nakakakilig pa sa pagmamahal ng Panginoon - tunay, wagas, panghabambuhay! Salamat po, Ama! ♥

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…
