How FAITH Overcame my FEARS?

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

Fear is the absence of Faith. When you let it in, you’re allowing it to stop you from achieving the things you are created to be.  We all have fears, even successful people have it – the only difference is that they never let it stop them. They act despite of fear!

According to research, the top 5 greatest fears of people are:

  1. Fear of the dark
  2. Fear of cockroaches and rats
  3. Fear of blood
  4. Fear of heights
  5. Fear of the unknown

Five Things to Do this Holy Week

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

Holy week is here – one of my favorite weeks of the year. It is the annual observance commemorating Jesus’ last week on earth and the events leading up to his resurrection on Easter Sunday (Calendarpedia)  It is the most important festival of the Christian church. It’s the time for us Christians to retreat, fast and repent for the wrong things we had done.

Aside from its sacredness, it’s also the best time to bond, play, and be with your family.

It’s White Day – Our Fight against Privatization of Public Market

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

What am I Fighting for? I am forever against privatization of any public Entities especially our Public Market.

I’m neither a lawyer nor a politician. I’m a voter and a concern citizen who wants to fight for her rights. I have no idea or knowledge regarding privatization of public entities, but I have the right to investigate any questionable activities that can lead to the loss of our business and jobs.

Last month we were shaken by the news regarding Resolution No. 50 – Privatization of Lipa City Public Market. There’s no public consultation whatsoever. We were just informed prior to voting and deliberation. We are invited to witness the voting which was held at Lipa City Hall. Upon hearing the debates, I realized half of the city councilors want to privatize the public market. I was sad and depressed but I have to stand up for what I think is right. We will fight until the end. Our business is here and many will lose their jobs.

THE ACTS OF GENEROSITY: WHEN TO GIVE AND WHEN NOT TO GIVE

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

The more you give the more you receive. It’s true; I have experienced it many times. Generosity opens more blessings. It will open the flood gates of heaven.

But there are times when you have to close your hands. You have to choose diligently who deserve your generosity – be sensitive enough to know who really needs your help. Because some take it for granted – I have done a social experiment on this – some are asking for help just for personal gain.

Our business is situated in public market where lots of street children, beggars, religious groups, and charities were asking for help. Some used different kinds of strategies and techniques to convince us to give – showing pictures of their love ones in a hospital bed – and when you give, they will show up again the other week showing different set of pictures.

I’m a generous person; I give to charities because I know they need it. But my hands are closed to those who only want to take me for granted.

It’s my Craft’s Day!

One of the most exciting parts of my week! Doing what I enjoyed the most. Truly they say, “Follow your passion and you’ll never work another day in your life”.

It’s so exciting to make this simple but beautiful piece of art – a flower decor out of paper. It took me 3 and a half hours but I enjoyed every step of the way.  Crafting is indeed my greatest love.  Some of my crafts took me days and even months to create but every piece of it worth the long hours. My collections made me proud of myself and inspired me to create more. Passion is when you’re never get tired of doing it. In my case, I can “waste” continuous 6 hours daily just creating one.

The 3 Expressions of a Father’s Love– A daughter’s tribute

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

            My father joined his creator May of last year. He is the best father and a good provider. We haven’t got enough money to splurge on material things but we are filled with his unconditional love – the Love that cannot be fathom, the love that can’t be shaken by surging storms and shaking grounds.

I wrote this article as a tribute to my father. These past few days, I often saw him in my dreams.  I can’t get his message but I missed him badly.

What the Bible say about family and fatherhood? In Colossians 3 it says, “Wives, submit to your husband, as is fitting to the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh on them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Father, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.”

In my opinion, the best advice on parenting comes from the Bible. If we only obey what it says, no divorce and no separation will take its place. Our family is never perfect, when I was a kid I often saw them fighting silently, but they never gave up on us!
