It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.

Farewell

I felt bad that the TV series CHARMED is now gone for good. I will cherish every episode they have. It is the best witches' story I ever know. They are heroes, Pipper Halliwell, Phoebe Halliwell and Paige Matthews. They fought demons and monsters, and they always save the world for the greater glory. They are the best example of heroes, who save the world from evil. It saddens me to realize that I won't see them anymore. I won't see them make potions and kick some demon ass. Oh, I like how they fought demons. I saw them killed demons, fell in love, cried over a lost loved ones, shed tears of joy for the happiest moment of their lives. I will surely miss them...

Charmed

After 8 long years, the Halliwell Sisters came to its final moment. The battle is over, or at least for the TV series it is over. It's a legendary TV series for me. For eight years I was with them. My one and only favorite...Goodbye Charmed Ones.

Da Vinci Code, the movie

May 18, Da Vince Code, the movie was shown all over the world. Before they finally come to conclusion that this will be shown there are a lot of issues. Many oppose to this movie for public viewing. There are a lot of reasons. But I think it boils to one reason only...Faith! Those who have watched this film might have an effect on their faith. Some might question Christianity. Some might wonder if what the movie shown was true. And so many questions might rise. In the end it will only have YOUR decision. No film can actually dictate what we can believe or not. No film should interfere with our Faith in God. This I firmly believe that our faith should not be base on films or such. But base on our knowledge of him...Our faith is stronger than that of film can show. Or what we might read on papers or books. Faith cannot be bought and so our dignity.

I've read Da Vince Code, the book, by Dan Brown. And I'm planning to watch Da Vinci Code, the movie. No harm done inside. My faith is still intact. I believe in Jesus Christ as our savior. I believe in God as our creator and I believe in the Holy Ghost. My belief doesn't change a bit. It is my choice.

For those people who want to stop this movie...well it's their belief shaken not mine. To those people who will watch then question God or Jesus Christ...well again it’s their belief questioned too not mine. We are old enough to know. We are old enough to stand on what we believe in. Have faith...God is good...God never commits mistakes, God is always right!

We should not make so much issue out of this movie. It just a movie, it may strengthen your faith or it may loosen your faith its up to you. If we let any thing like this affect our lives then we are weak Christian...Our faith should not be shaken only by a mere movie. God is real and so is our faith. IN MY OPINION MOVIES ARE FOR ENTERTAINMENT. ON HOW YOU WILL ACCEPT THE OUTCOME OF THIS MOVIE IS UP TO YOU. MY FAITH IS SACRED WITH OR WITHOUT DA VINCI CODE...SO WHY BOTHER?

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.

Why We Love Who We Love

It's a question no one can answer quite well. Some feelings are hard to describe, and this feeling of LOVE is one of them. Loving a person doesn't need a reason for doing so. It just happens. A feeling you can't command nor deny.

How hard you should try you can never hide it. It's a feeling we can't explain why it happen to a person. It is a feeling of great happiness, yet often times it hurts...

We love who we love because they bring out the best in us. They give us sense of security. They give us reasons to go on with life. They give us meaning of surviving. They give us something to look forward to in every morning that we wake-up. They give us life...

Love has different faces. We feel different kinds of love for different kinds of people. Below love, there is friendship. Love, founded by friendship has strong foundation. Love grows and develops. We love our parents without being taught. We love our friends because we choose to. We love someone so special without knowing. The third kind of love is difficult to acknowledge. First there will be doubt and fear. Doubt that he might not love you back, and fear that at the end up being hurt. It is always worth the risk to take on love. I believe that...

What ever happen it is best to love than not at all. It is better to love then lost than nothing at all. In the end we always learn from the experiences we've had. Then hold on to the faith that true love will come. We may fail at first to look for love. The conclusion, we should never look for love, let love look for you. Let love finds its way to you. Love comes like a thief in the night, where you least expect it. That the mystery of how love works. Love works magically. At the end of finding love, we are expected to cherish the feeling. We should take care of that person, because he is a gift given to us by God to love.

How wonderful it is to be loved and to love in return...The feeling is so great that it cannot be brought or bargain for. Love is given freely without doubt and unconditionally. The greatest feeling a person can feel. You are not a person if you don't feel love at all. Each person love, although differently, yet we feel love. No matter on what degree of love, but the important is we feel it.


We love who we love us because they complete us. In a very busy world like this, there is someone who will match with the description that he is the perfect match for us...We love who we love because we choose to do it and that gives us satisfaction and the most wonderful feeling we can feel.

Believe!

Leaves don't just fall from the tree,

Clouds don't just form from the sky,

Angels don't just come down from heaven,

Everything happens for a reason...believe!

How is She?

Few years back I met this young girl. Because of her life's situation she needed to get a job regardless of her age. She became our house maid. She's 14 then. I felt pity for her. I was surprise that inspite of her age she is fully aware of how poor life can be. How poverty affect their lives. She mature quickly...I think too quickly that she is forgetting how to be young and free of so much worry in life. She wanted to be mature...it is by choice. She acted like 18...well; she wanted to act like 18. She knows how to put on make-up, she knows how to dress seductively and she knows a lot of things about the opposite sex already. That gives me the creeps because at that age...life was so simple to me. No malice and no worries. We were 2 different persons at the age of 14. Going back...I can't blame her. She was not to blame, her environment speaks for it. As days passed by she started to talk about her, her life and her ambitions. That's how I learned the real person in her. And how she became to be...She was full of dreams and ambitions, which I think at that moment was good, because I knew that with her ambitions she can able to act upon reaching her goals. She is a very determined young girl. She knows what she want out of life already. She wanted to make a difference with her life. If she would live her life again she will never choose her present life-definitely. At her early age she already knew what made them like that...As a young girl she's not ugly at all. She has charm to use. And she knew that quite well. For one her ambition is to go and work at Japan. The most "easiest" way to become rich. I said easiest because for people like her it is the only way they knew how to fulfill their dreams.

At the age of 16 she entered the Club. She was told that this is her only stepping stone to reach Japan. In this place she is taught how to dance, mingle with customers, drink some lady's drink, entertain spectators and dress accordingly. She was trilled with the new happening in her life. We never loose communication. She told me almost everything that happened to her. Her experiences and her feelings regarding her new job. She also found friends...whom at the latter was not friends after all. At the age of 17 she got pregnant. She was pregnant by a married man. She was devastated; she didn't know what to do. She thought of doing an abortion, but she didn't. Her life was a mess. She didn't know where to run. She stayed with me again for 2 months. I accepted her. She gave birth only with the "hilot" alone to accompany her. Her family was not with her. She was basically alone. I pity her. During those times that she was still earning high her family was with her. Now that she's not earning anymore they are gone. That was so sad. At first the man responsible for her pregnancy gave her financial support, but later on she was forsaken. She went home to her family, leave the baby for them to take care and she continue her work at the Club. I knew right then that she was never happy with what is happening to her life. It saddens her that her dream to work for Japan will never happen anymore...She's always telling me that she love her baby so much...(I wish it is true). All I can give her is my prayer.

At the moment, at the age of 18, she is still working at the Club at San Pablo Laguna. She is taking care of her baby alone. She needs money to support her baby and her self. She is far from her family, and I think that's what she really wanted. To live alone with her daughter. The father of her baby is gone...No help either. She is currently involved with a guy, married and had a child. What a life! She really never learn. As fort he record, this guy is now separated with his wife and that is because of her. I don't know if she knew what she is doing. I don't know if she can differentiate the right from wrong. I was disappointed. She treated me as friend and I did the same for her. There was a time where I was fed off. I let her go, I didn't communicate with her anymore. But she is always reaching for me. I knew right then she needed someone to talk to. And so again I offer my friendship to her. She has no one she considers as friend. She knew she was alone. She can't depend on her family or anyone. That is why she is confiding on me, only I she trust that much. And so again, I welcomed her. I felt sad with what happened in her life. I guess there is nothing I can do but watch. Before I though she was listening to my advice...well maybe at first. But as she grew she never listen to anyone anymore. At the moment I am not giving her anymore advice. I just listen to everything she says without comment. I let her be. She doesn't need anyone anymore. I knew what she need me was a Friend whom she could talk to and is willing to listen.

I pray that someday she will learn about all the mistakes she have done. And hopefully she will not repeat her mistakes anymore (I doubt!). She's still young, she's 18 years old. She still has too much to learn, too much to experience and too much to see through life. Her journey is just at the beginning. I hope that one day through her journey she meet God. I'm not loosing hope, she still have a greater chance to change her life. God is most welcome to accept her.

The Paradox of Life

Everybody wants to live a long life...but nobody wants to get old.
Everybody wants to go to heaven...but nobody wants to die.
And nobody seems to realize that in our life's journey...no one has ever reaches the finish line alive.

(",)

Before you were conceived I wanted you
Before you were born I loved you
Before you were here an hour I would die for you
This is the miracle of life.

...

If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got. So when you want something you've never had...you've got to do something you've never done...

Love is

a hidden fire, a pleasant sore, a soothing pain, an agreeable torment, a sweet wound in short, a gentle death...
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't. And believe that everything happens for a reason. Know a good thing when you see it, and don't let it slip away. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just said it would be worth your while...

Thanks God

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
!

Teenage Pasaway

This caught my attention...pasaway teenagers...are they? I was watching a show from ABS-CBN and I observe their actions and behavior. Honestly I don't like what I'm seeing. This is not what I expect them to be. Well...I don't want to generalize...not all the said contestants (known as housemates) are like that. I have to give credit to some teenagers who are really a role model...a good influence that is. There are kind-hearted and talented ones. Some are conservative still. And others are doing well in their studies. But I wonder about the others who are not doing well as being a role model. They are being pasaway. I have a cousin who's being pasaway now...he has a girlfriend and he is really giving his mother hard time thinking about him. I'm beginning to wonder what is wrong. During my days teens were different...that's what I believe in. Teens those days we more respectful in general. But today teens are different. I can't say how different but I am sure they are a lot more different. Maybe the word pasaway describe them more....Yeah! They are hard-headed.

What makes the teens now a day become pasaway? Is it the environment? Is it the society they are living now, the people they hang around with? Does food have anything about it? Nah---I don't think so! Is it what they see on television? Is is the ever growing intellect of human being? What causes this evolution? They are really different. Aside from the style of clothing they wear, there is also the influence of language, they speak totally different. Sad to say that some values are put to waste. Less teenagers are practicing good moral values. Do school teachings loose their touch already? I can't really know. The start of every generations is different...some for the good and some for the bad. What people can see clearly is their changes for the bad. I believe it is more visible than those people who changes for the better.

I am afraid of the world outside my home. What will the teens become in the future? Will it worsen? ---hope not! I still believe in values, the values that our parents are teaching us. It always important to listen to our parent, because listening to them will lead us to a greater path.

I also believe that being a pasaway teenager is a stage of life. Soon after they mature they will grow into more responsible and good adults. Soon they will shed the skin of being pasaway and embrace a new life. They will learn from their mistakes and go on with life. Being pasaway will come to pass...

IN MY OPINION, I DID NOTICE CHANGES FROM THE TEENS TODAY, MOSTLY I DO NOT AGREE WITH. YET I WANT TO BELIEVE THAT ONE DAY THEY WILL CHANGE FOR THE BETTER. BUT AS FOR THE MOMENT ONLY FEW ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING...*sigh*

Happy Mothers Day!

Mothers are special people...the love they give is the greatest love a person can give. She is the perfect example of love, sacrifices, tolerance, patience etc...A mother always knows best...yup! Very old saying but definitely true. A mother would always want the best for her child and make sure she will give it to her. Often times, we misunderstood our mothers. Often times, we take them for granted. Often times we don't give her the love and attention she deserves. It hurt her, but she never mention anything to us. She accepts us as who we are, no matter how we cause her pain, still she has her love ready to give. She always understands us, she will never forsake us either. The love she is giving her child is the ultimate affection we can get from a human being. She knows us too much that she never complains about anything we can and can't give. A mother always loves her child for she is sure that this child came from her. She's always there when we need them, even if we don't need them she is always there. As a mother aged, her child became a parent, then the mother became a grandmother. Even if she is already a grandmother she never stops to be a mother...All her life she devoted to be a mother. All her life she will be a mother to her child who's age is 50 or more...A mother can never say no to being a mother. There's no retirement for being a mother, no vacation leave, not even sick leave. Being a mother is not a career but a choice she made just for YOU. She chooses you above anything and anyone. She can choose not to be a mother but a successful career woman, yet even as a career woman she is a mother first. Before she can be anything she is a mother first for you. That's how big her love is. And for sure, a mother always enjoys what she is doing because you give her so much joy in just taking care of you. You complete her...Every minute every second of her life she is a mother the moment she give birth. Only a woman who gave birth performs miracle. The miracle of giving life. Only she has the power to give and share life. The greatest miracle performer of all time...Mothers! This month we give honor, recognition and celebration to our mothers. I pray that even though it’s not the month of May, we may still continue to honor, give live and attention, give recognition and celebrate the existence of our mothers in our lives. For being a mother is not only a 1 month responsibility but all through life. We can never thank our mother for the gift of life, not the word thank you is enough. The smallest thing we can do is by giving her love in return. A simple gesture of love will make her the happiest person. A mother never want extravagant gifts, only your love, affection and attention is more that enough. How she knew who loved her is always enough. Love not only the feeling but it should come with actions. We show her our love. During birthdays, special holidays be there for her. Even on an ordinary day...just be there...beside her...and that would be more than enough even without the words.

To all the mothers out there...Happy Mothers Day! God Bless...

My my my...it's May already! How fast the days gone by. Soon May will be over and it's school time once again. My Shagne will be in grade 4 by then. As for me I'm ready for new challenges to come. I'm a little upset because I can't connect to my friendster blog. I have lots to post there. Anyway all I have to do is wait patiently.
Have you ever heard of the first rain of May is miraculous? Base from the old people especially at our province I heard my Lola talked about this. You will drink the first rain of May to prevent stomach ache and you'll also need the first rain of May to help cure prickle heat. I don't actually know if this is true. I haven't tried it yet. And again I heard on the news the other day...but of course there is no scientific explanation about the effectiveness of these heresay.
You know what my friendsterblog is now ok...I'm glad
