Nasaan Ka, USB?

Feeling tired, down and alone then suddenly a very dear friend chatted with me in Facebook and apparently, he was feeling the same way too. So he sent me the link of a video of our friends arguing where the hell did they put their flash drive. I couldn't stop myself from laughing inside the office while watching the video. This really made my day!

To those who can't understand, sorry pero Ilocano po ang dialect na ginamit dito :) Just imagine na parating ganito ang eksena ng mga kaibigan ko who happens to be engaged in events/wedding coordination...

NO GIVING UP! The Concert

I've been away for quite some time now and for those who have read my previous blogs, they would know that I was busy rehearsing my choir for a charity concert. It has been a week ago since we staged our very first charity concert here at BJMP Laoag and yet the euphoria hasn't changed a bit. We have been receiving great feedback from various sectors outside and apparently several organizations want to sponsor a repeat concert.

WE are humbled by this once in a lifetime experience and we couldn't hold back the tears of joy from our eyes because all our efforts and sacrifices are nothing compared to the success and adulation we are experiencing now.

We couldn't thank enough the members of the Holy Spirit Academy of Laoag Batch '86 most especially Madam Chevylle V. FariƱas for conceptualizing this humble yet meaningful project, the Production and Creative Team for their patience and dedication and our very supportive and dynamic Warden for his selfless dedication to this project. Lastly, a BIG thank you to my colleagues for being with me through this journey and for sharing their talents for this charitable project. WE MADE IT!

True indeed that there are a lot of things that we had to give up but there are better things that we will never give up!

To God be the glory!



P.S. I will be posting photos of the concert soon...

My Love Is Your Love

One of my all-time favorite song. It gives me chills every time I hear it.

If I should die this very day 
Don’t cry ‘cause on earth 
We weren’t meant to stay 
And no matter what the people say 
I’ll be waiting for you 
After the judgment day

'Cause your love is my love...

You worry and are troubled about many things, whereas only one thing is needed.

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, He entered a village and a woman called Martha welcomed him to her house. She had a sister named Mary who sat down at the Lord's feet to listen to his words. Martha, meanwhile, was busy with all the serving and finally she said, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do all the serving?" But the Lord answered, "Martha, Martha, you worry and are troubled about many things, whereas only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen the better part, and it will not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:38-42)

The Gospel today teaches us about the source of true peace and happiness.  We sometimes worry and are troubled with so many things that we already forget to spare a minute of our time to  reflect and pray. With all that's been happening lately, let us not forget to talk to Him. As Padre Pio once said, "Pray, hope and do not worry." Prayer is not a one-way conversation. God speaks to us in prayer and we feel His presence in our midst. Prayer is not informing God about things He didn't know. It is made to humble man's heart, to inflame his faith and to testify that He is God, the maker of everything.
