Sister's Week Tag

I got this tag from Rocks and I'm thankful to her. It's been ages since somebody sent me a tag. Now, I'm sending it back to her because she's one of those Christian bloggers that I met here in the blogosphere.

Start copying here:




Be the kind of women that when your feet hit the floor each morning,
The devil says "Oh Crap, She's Up."
Sister, life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Love the ones who don't just because you can.
Believe in everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Kiss slowly. Forgive quickly.
God never said life would be easy.
He just promise it would be worth it.
Today is sister's day.

To the cool women that have touched my life.
this is for you.....LOVE U!!!

Rules:

Tag all your sisters, mothers, daughters, aunts, girlfriends,
Including me if I am like one. If you get tag back seven times, you are loved.
Happy sister's day! LOVE YA SISTA!!!
Girlfriend and sisters WEEK.

I am tagging Richelle, Ging and Jacky

Giving Out Gospel Tracts

This afternoon after cleaning our house and taking a shower, I asked my hubby to go out with me to distribute our gospel tracts to the neighborhood and invite them to our church tomorrow. He said he can't leave my aunt alone in the house because of her condition. My aunt has Alzheimer's disease and when she's alone, she roam around the kitchen, turn on the stove and my hubby is afraid that my aunt will burn the house. So I called my nephew next door and asked him to go with me. Unfortunately, my first 2 prospects went to a banquet so we turned back home. Hubby was at the gate and he said he just turned off the gas regulator so my aunt can't light the stove just in case. So off we went walking around the town plaza and distributed some gospel tracts. The thing is we ran out of gospel tracts because I took only quite a few. Next time we'll go out again and I'll make it sure that I will take with us the bag full of tracts.

Riding My Stationary Bike

A couple of months ago, I bought a stationary bike using my blogging money. I noticed that I've been gaining weight and also both of my knees are now having arthritis. I can hardly walk after sitting in front of my laptop for a few hours. If I squat, it's hard for me to stand up because I can feel pain in both of my knees. Oh my, this must be sign of aging??? Yaks! I used to exercise everyday when I was in Texas because I have a treadmill, stationary bike and a power rider there. Here I don't have any of those because I can't take it with me when we moved here. Thus, no exercise and the result, I gained weight.

The stationary bike I bought has an LCD and I can monitor my speed, time and how many calories I burned. This afternoon, I rode my bike for 30 minutes and it made me sweat. I felt so good after that. The previous days, I rode for 25 to 30 minutes. Next time I wish to prolong my time riding it. I just need a determination to ride it often so I can lose those excess pounds. I want to be slim again. I can't afford to change my wardrobe if I become bigger.

Paranoid Neighbor

Lately, I've been busy washing our clothes because according to the news, a strong typhoon will be coming again. Most people who were victims of the typhoon and flood a couple of weeks ago haven't recovered yet from that great disaster and here comes again another typhoon. A lot of people now are in fear just like one of our neighbors. She came to our house and she said she was not able to sleep the previous night because she was thinking of the coming typhoon and a possible earthquake that she heard in the news. She feared that the dam will break and our area will be flooded. She wanted to evacuate now and she even packed some of her clothes already. She was so paranoid. We told her that in case that thing will happen, she’s not alone. She’s afraid to die just like those people who died during the flood. My brother advised her to stop watching the news so she will not get nervous. I’ve been witnessing to her about salvation and putting her trust in Jesus. If you are saved and you know for sure that you will spend eternity in heaven, then there’s nothing to fear. Come what may, you know who holds tomorrow and who’s in control of anything that happens in this world. It’s Jesus Christ, my Savior and my coming King.

Dual Citizenship

Last Monday, my hubby and I went the Immigration Office in Intramuros, Manila to file for my dual citizenship. I must admit, I’ve been postponing to go there because I really don’t like to go to Manila because I hate the traffic there and also we always have a bad experience from the crocodiles in the streets (mga buwaya sa kalsada na pulis) and MMDA workers. They aways stop our driver for a made up violation and fine him. But since we are already here in my homeland for 9 months now, I have to file my application before the expiration of our free stay here or we have to pay huge amount for the extension of our visas. Our free stay here is only good for a year. I paid Php3,000 for the application and hopefully it will be approved soon because I have to petition my hubby for permanent residency here.

Flood Due To Typhoon

I was watching in the tv the victims of the typhoon and flood in the Philippines and I really feel sorry to them. Most of them had lost their homes, appliances and everything. Typhoon Ondoy had flooded Manila and typhoon Peping flooded Northern Luzon including our province Pangasinan. The San Roque dam released water which caused the flood. This was the worst flood in 40 years according to the news. At night when I lie down in bed, I think of those people who are in evacuation centers with no comfortable bed to sleep, no foods and clothing. My heart goes out to them. Relief goods had been distributed to them. I just pray to the good Lord that He will comfort them and provide their every need.

It's Good To Be Back...

...after more than 3 weeks of absence. I didn't go anywhere. it's just that we didn't have internet connection again because of the same old problem, somebody had stolen again the phone line in our area. It's really so disgusting why the thieves keep stealing the phone lines. They said the thieves sell the copper that they get from the phone cables and they make money out of that. They steal during the night when all people are sleeping in the area where there are no houses. This is the 2nd time it happened this year. I just hope they will stop stealing so we will not lost our phone and internet connection. I missed checking my e-mail, facebook, friendster, communicating with my friends and loved ones and of course updating my blogs. I missed blogging and making money online.
