from me to you:

Words are not enough to say how many blessings we receive from the Lord each day [Just the fact that you landed on this page is already a huge blessing!]. It is for this reason that How Blessed and Loved I Am exists - to tell, in words, in pictures, in music, in videos, how every smile, every laugh, every frown, every tear, every shout, and every jump are very much part of God's shower of graces.

Join us in sharing the little microscopic blessings we receive each day from Him, our everlasting and ever-loving Father!^^

Wordless Wednesday Again - Manila Bay Sunset..

It's the famous Manila Bay sunset -
the view I got to see everyday from where I worked before.
I miss the place.
I miss the school.
I miss my students.
I miss being a teacher.

Tuesday's Character Confession


Monday, August 24, 2009

Jesus Be the Center

Jesus be the center
Be my source
Be my light

Jesus be the center
Be my hope
Be my song

Be the fire in my heart
Be the wind in my sails
Be the reason that I live
Jesus Jesus

Jesus be my vision
Be my help
Be my guide


More than Enough

All of You is more than enough for all of me
For every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You is more than enough

You are my supply
My breath of life
And still more awesome than I know
You are my reward
worth living for
And still more awesome than I know

All of You is more than enough for all of me
For every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You is more than enough

Youre my sacrifice
Of greatest price
And still more awesome than I know
Youre the coming King
You are everything
And still more awesome than I know

More than all I want
More than all I need
You are more than enough for me
More than all I know
More than all I can say
You are more than enough for me

Enough - it's one of those songs that truly portrays what I feel whenever I remember the goodness of God in my life. Despite being unworthy of His love, I continue to experience His wonderful gifts and blessings. And even in suffering, I know that His grace is enough.
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Cor 12:9 (KJV)

My God is an all-knowing, all-powerful God. He knows what is best for us, and, quoting Max Lucado, "From heaven's perspective, grace is enough." Grace in the form of the ultimate sacrifice of Christ - giving His life on the cross for us.

If God saved our souls and then left us to spend our lives leprosy-struck on a deserted island, would He be unjust? Having been given eternal life, dare we grumble at an aching body? Having been given heavenly riches, dare we bemoan earthly poverty?

- Max Lucado, Experiencing the Heart of Jesus

If you have two eyes, two ears, a nose and lips, then He has already given you grace upon grace. Shouldn't we be more thankful?:inlove:

Love, we need love..

You know who I am inside
You know when I lie
You can tell when I'm amazed
You can see my faith
You know when I don't believe
You know when I'm free
You can tell when I need love
You know I'm in need

Love, I need love
You are love
I need You
Love, You are love
I need love
I need You

You know of my deepest fear
You know when I'm scared
You can read my empty page
You can feel my rage
You're aware of when I dream
You see when I bleed
You can tell when I need love
You know I'm in need

I know we need You, Father
Much more than any other
Your love brings us together
We need You, we need You

Love, we need love
You are love
We need You
Love, You are love
We need love
We need You I need You.

last night my cicely and i went to lifehouse. kuya jan sang this song and i was inspired, and at the same time i was thinking that we really need God and His love for us. as i was thinking, it made me smile and sigh ( in a good way) because of the lyrics..

I know we need You, Father
Much more than any other
Your love brings us together
We need You, we need You

because i'm telling my cicely that our Lord must be the center of everything we have and everything we are.

Poetry Play Thursday - Time

Time fails
to sustain its claims;
It carries its pains.

Time betrays
its promise of days;
It goes on its ways.

Time forgets
a future of rest;
It just leaves regret.

english barok

yey!! no classes!! i'm thankful because i can do other things, especially on our management research, whew!! ^^ just got the idea lately, buwahahaha!! :devilishgrin:

but what i thank God most for, aside from the blessings that i receive from Him: food, shelter, clothing, family, friends, good health, money, etc.. is my cicely... yes, my cicely. ^^ a lot of times i disappoint her, make her feel bad, etc.. i am thankful to God that she is still there, no matter what, even if i hurt her feelings sometimes ( she doesn't tell it to me ) she is still there. encouraging me when i am down, boosts my confidence when i'm not confident, understands me, myself and jetsky and my abnormalities and paranoia ( hahahaha!!! ^^ ) she does all things through the help of God.
but above all, i'm thankful to God who is the center and foundation of our relationship ( though we are not yet the boyfriend/girlfriend thingy), our God who loves both my cicely and me, our God who showers His grace over us, His favor upon us
, and His blessings and victory unto us.


God deserves all the thanksgiving. I get it all from Him.:woooh:


those little microscopic blessings...^^

Thursday, Thursday.

It's almost noon. I should be writing my thanksgiving later today since yesterday wasn't so much of a good day. Was late, couldn't breathe, got pissed. But still enough to praise God!
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

1 Tim 4:4-5 (KJV)

Yesterday at 2 PM, I was supposed to have an interview with the General Manager of the company I was applying to. But I had encountered several problems:
*somebody was late (err.. that's because there was no tricycle in sight)

*waiting for the passengers to occupy the van took 30 minutes

*the van was too hot (even with the AC on, oh! we were seated right where the engines are)

*the man beside me had such a wet and sticky arm that i needed to move my arm far far away from him!

*i couldn't breathe - hands numb and cold and sweaty all together

*i was late
All of those happened in an hour, I guess. I arrived 10 minutes after 2 and already got a message if I could come on time. *panic panic* My hands were still shaky and my legs wobbly. I got on the elevator without realizing that I forgot which floor the company was located.:hilo: First to the 6th floor, then 8th, then 7th, then 9th. Finally, I went down to the lobby, hoping I could remember which floor I went to the last time I was there. I went up again: 9th, 8th, 7th. I swallowed my pride, went to the lobby guard, and asked for directions.:tsk: It was on the 3rd floor!

When I arrived, the Head Instructor was as accommodating as she was the first time we met. I wasn't late! I was just....well... Right! Others were just ahead of me. I was the last! :anongnangyari: The interview was quick and casual - I was even wearing slippers! We shook hands; he said, "Good luck and have fun on the training!" Was that an assurance?

After the interview with him, the Head Instructor briefed me on what would happen to my application and simulation results. I would have to wait.

Those things transpired so quickly that I didn't have a chance to thank God for all those little, microscopic blessings He gave me yesterday. What are those? Here goes..
*i had a conviction to wait for my companion a little bit longer. God taught me to be patient and that there should be no room for anger (Mt. 6:14).

*i had to wait for the van to be full before it can leave the terminal. God taught me that one must be filled (or complete) before they can do the job assigned to them.

*i had to endure the van's temperature. God taught me the meaning of 1 Peter 4:1 (KJV) - Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin. :sweaty: *haha*

*i had to sit beside a man who was wet with buckets of sweat. God reminded me that when i was even worse than this man, He has already loved me (Rom. 5:6-8). Therefore, I have no right to justify this man by mere sweat alone (Luke 6:37).:devilishgrin:

*i couldn't breathe. God taught me that when my heart is filled with rage and annoyance, my spirit is affected as well (Prov. 15:13).

*i was late. God taught me to trust Him completely that even in the midst of trouble, He will get me through, safely (Mk. 9:23-24).

Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.

Heb 5:8 (KJV)
