My Hubby Preached

Last Wednesday night, my hubby had the chance to preach in our church. Our pastor and his wife are in Ohio right now and he designated some people to preach while he is away. Fortunately my hubby is one of those he designated to preach. I was so excited to hear my hubby preach again. It's been a while since the last time he preached. While he was up there in the pulpit I was busy praying for him. I prayed that God would give him heavenly wisdom to bring his message in the church. Our service went well and hubby delivered his message that God wanted him to preach. I praised and thanked God because it's a great honor and privilege for my hubby just to stand up there and preach the Word of God.

Good Fellowship

We had such a good church service last Sunday. Our pastor had preached a good message and after the church service we had a good time fellowshipping with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Though it was cold last Sunday, still a lot of people attended the church. It means that we truly love the Lord and the cold weather was not a hindrance to go to church and worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth. I'm always excited to attend church service and I always look forward to it. Tomorrow night my hubby will be preaching in our church during the midweek service. Our pastor and his wife are in Ohio right now so he asked hubby to preach on Wednesday night. I'm excited and looking forward to hear my hubby preach again. By the way hubby took a photo of me with my sisters in Christ last Sunday after our church service.

Friends

It's good to see old friends this Thanksgiving weekend. Sofia, a dear friend of mine was here on Thanksgiving with her 2 kids. She drove all the way from South Carolina with her kids to be with her hubby during Thanksgiving Day. She came to our house with her nephew and niece and she was able to meet our 2 missionary friends from the Philippines who were still in our house last Friday afternoon. I was so glad to see her because I miss her so much. She's a good christian friend of mine and she's like a sister to me. She and her kids will drive back to South Carolina tomorrow. It's gonna be a long trip again for her, almost 24 hours trip. I wish her a safe trip. Meanwhile, our missionary friends left on Friday afternoon after spending 2 nights with us. So it's just me and hubby once again. I miss their company and I wish to see them once again soon.

Thanks To God

I pray that this will bless you as it blessed me.

Hello God,
I called tonight
To talk a little while
I need a friend who'll listen
To my anxiety and trial.
You see, I can't quite make it
Through a day just on my own...
I need your love to guide me,
So I'll never feel alone.
I want to ask you please to keep
My family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence
For whatever fate they're bound.
Give me faith, dear God, to face
Each hour throughout the day,
And not to worry over things
I can't change in any way.
I thank you God for being home
And listening to my call,
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.
Your number, God, is the only one
That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
Never had to pay a ! dime.
So thank you, God, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrow.
Good night, God, I love You too,
And I'll call again tomorrow!

Wear Those Shoes...


Hubby and I went to church tonight. For the first time I got the chance to wear my new tennis shoes. I told my hubby that it fits me me good and it doesn't hurt my feet. I like the inside cushion, it's soft to my feet. When we got back home after church I asked hubby to take photos of me. I did scrapbooking work for this pic. It was just a rush because it's already midnight but I think it turned out okay.

My Tennis Shoes

Hubby and I went to Wal Mart this afternoon to buy some groceries and meat for Thanksgiving. We bought beef, chicken, grapes, canned goods, bread and of 4 gallons of bottled water. I don't like drinking tap water because I don't like the taste of the chlorine. Besides it's not good for our health. After buying groceries, I asked hubby to go to the women's shoes section. He said "you're buying shoes again"? He knows that I like buying shoes and of course purse. So we went to the shoes section and I tried different kinds of shoes. Then I decided to buy a black tennis shoes for this coming winter. I bought a white Nike tennis shoes three months ago but it turned out to be tight to me. I just used it two times and my feet hurt so I don't wanna use it no more. I will just give it away. I like the tennis shoes that I just bought today because it has cushion inside and it's comfortable to my feet. The price is reasonable too.

Yummy Meal

I was busy cooking this afternoon. In fact I prepared a 4 course meal. The first I cooked was broccoli with beef and carrots. Then I cooked beef adobo and mungo beans with ampalaya fruits and leaves and beef. I also prepared vegetable salad. Oh my, my hubby enjoyed the meal. How he likes the beef adobo and the mongo beans with ampalaya. He kept telling the mongo beans is good and he really likes it including the ampalaya. Hmmm, where on earth can you find an american eating mongo beans with ampalaya? But that's my hubby, he's not picky with his foods. He told me that he seldom eat vegetables before he married me. But since I like veggies and I cook it often, he said the veggies that I cook taste good. When we were still in the Philippines, he ate any vegetables that my aunt cooked. Even bamboo shoot and saluyot. I remember one time we were eating lunch and my neighbor came in our house. She's seen that we were eating saluyot. She can't really believed that George eat saluyot and she kept laughing. My neighbor was fascinated seeing an American eating saluyot. I told hubby that saluyot is considered a Philippine grass, ha-ha-ha! Oh well, I'm really blessed that hubby likes Filipino foods. The American husbands of some of my friends are so picky with their foods and they don't like some of the Filipino foods. It's good hubby is not like them. He likes almost anything that we offered him in the Philippines except for one thing - the chicken feet barbecue(adidas)ha-ha-ha!!!

Finally!!!

Finally I have my own domain name. It's a great feeling to have my own unique personal domain. The first one that I bought did not work at all. I don't know what was wrong. I was really frustrated when I can't make it work. I called my domain registrar maybe about 8 times and they kept telling me different instructions. Each time I called, I spoke to another person and told me another instruction. They really confused me. But in fairness, the last person I talked to was so nice and helpful. He took the extra mile to help me but it seems the technical problem is beyond his comprehension. I really appreciate his help though. So they were not able to fix the problem so I bought another domain. I just charged that to a bad experience. Never mind the money wasted, I can earn that by blogging. It's good the new domain I bought is working good now. Thanks to my friend Ivy. She was a big help to me. She's not only pretty outside but pretty inside too. She's Alice Dixon look-alike, a very pretty lady. I hope she won't change. It's such a blessing to have a friend like her. Thanks again my friend.

Prayer

Everyday of my life I pray to my Heavenly Father. Prayer is the key to open a new day of my life. Early in the morning as I wake up I spend time praying. I pour all my cares and plans in my life to God. Then after praying I read my Bible. I read a few chapters in the Bible daily. Then I read my Daily bread booklet. Then I pray again. Prayer serves as a lock to close the day. At night before I go to sleep, I pray again to my heavenly Father and thank Him for all the things I've done the whole day. I thank Him for His many blessings and provisions. Then I ask Him to watch over me and hubby during the night and keep us safe always. I make prayer a part of my life. Hubby and I also pray before each meal. We always give Him thanks for the foods that He provided us. Prayer is powerful and when we pray God will be moved and He will answer our prayers in His perfect time. Following the A-C-T-S model in praying can help if you don't know how to start your prayer.

Adoration: “Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy Name”

Confession: “Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors”

Thanksgiving: “Thine is the Kingdom & the Power & The Glory”

Supplication: “Give us this day our daily bread, lead us not into temptation, deliver us”

Jesus commanded us to pray without ceasing. Even Jesus prayed to His heavenly Father. Let's follow His example.

A PRAYER FOR MY TIME ON THE COMPUTER

Gracious God, even in the wondrous tangle of wires and connections, you make yourself known. May my computer be more than a machine of information and become an altar on which I am able to offer my thanks for the abundance of gifts in this richly textured world. As I scan through images, as I learn and explore, as I create and produce, bring my soul to the awareness that I am not alone in this vast world of human energy. Fill me with that energy and give me a heart of gratitude. Amen.
