Red, real red!

Yellow Lab

I love dogs though am allergic to their fur and their dander. We used to have a Labrador like this which was on loan to us by my husband's cousin who breeds dogs of all kinds. I hope one day after we go home to our province we will have another dog to play with. This Yellow Lab is really lovable right?

The Lord is the Greatest!

Lord, you are the Greatest that ever happened in my life and for this I am eternally thankful.
My life this week was really full. This is exam week and me, my husband and my classmates are really cracking our internal combustion to study harder, finished the requirements on time and do additional take home case studies. And GOD has really sustained me this far and I know He will always be there. I am thankful this week for:

1. Both two children receiving Outstanding and Achievers Awards in Academics and Curricular Activities yesterday.....Yehheeyyy. I cannot ask for more. Whewwww...I rarely had a hand in their studies nowadays, with me and my husband also studying and getting a grip on everything that's happening in our life.
2. An extra income coming from blogs, and whatever I can do to really help meet our needs.
3. A new found friend, Racquel, she visited us this morning and brought some fresh bounties from her garden......big...big....hugs...Racquel...God has blessed you always and will always open His doors for your generous heart.
4. A free bone scanning, initiated by the College of Health yesterday. My results says, I have pre-Osteopenia....oh my...I have to exercise, exercise and exercise to bring it back to normal. Exercise is proven to be beneficial to bone lose, osteoporosis and over all mental health.
5. A mission project that is 80% done....we did a family fund raising this year to buy a motorboat, so our missionary friends assigned in a very remote island villages can have water transport and continue the mission fields program, we helped started. God is Great All The Time.
5. All friends in the blogsphere.....let's exercise now....and make ourselves more beautiful, positive, and energetic to serve the Lord.

Then Sings My Soul Saturday

Why am I such a dusty window
For your light to shine through?
Why am I just a tiny star
In a sky already blue?
Why do I offer everything
With my heart closed like a fist?
I want to love You better than this

Why do I live like I'm in chains
When You have set me free?
And why do I have to break Your heart
Before I fall to my knees?
I know it's time to pray for change
Give all I have to give
I want to love You better than this

So renew me
Remake me
Undo me
Unbreak me
Come into the empty spaces
Of my broken places
And consume me
Complete me
Pursue me
Redeem me
Let Your Holy Spirit living through me
Renew me

I need You as my refuge
My first and last resort
Be the river always running
Through my deepest thoughts
Keep me in Your arms
'Cause even when I drift
I want to love You better than this

So renew me
Remake me
Undo me
Unbreak me
Come into the empty spaces
Of my broken places
And consume me
Complete me
Pursue me
Redeem me
Let Your Holy Spirit living through me
Renew me

My life bending to Your will
Seeking You until I'm more and more like You

The Lord has renewed my life each day and this song tells about my struggle to live God's Way.

Thankful Thursday: So Much to be Thankful!

There is so much in which to be thankful, there are gifts so abundant each day, so we thank Thee dear Lord for Thy mercy..........Thankful for:

A seminar we attended for Advanced Statistics, the lecturer made it look so simple and really enjoyable.

Our friend graduated from his Doctor in Ministry degree...Congratulations Dr. Don Generato and family. We celebrated his graduation with a potluck with long time friends.

Great women from our church who actively participated in all programs: outreach, feeding, medical-dental, prison ministry, hospital ministry, children's ministry, song ministry, choir, etc....we enjoyed the activities so much and every woman was awarded for each of their contribution and effort. Each one received gifts and a pot of orchid in full bloom. Happy International Womens Day, this is what we call real "Girl Power," we ended the celebration with a big luncheon potluck. I love you all and I enjoy being there.

Bloggy friends around the universe.....we rock girls, gals, pals, honey, sweetheart, darling, we are fabulous in God's eyes, we really are. I love you all!

Don't Take Risk!

Oooopsss!......I almost forgot the date. My, my, my, see how time rolls. I have to do this obligation or I will be in, in a most surprising situation. My car agent actually reminded me today of my car insurance renewal. This will be due within two weeks and I haven't placed my schedule with my friend. However, he also reminded me that I have to choose another insurance company this time, a new one at that. Okey...I have to read the brochure of the insurance center options he has sent me. I have found one just this minute. It has facts on car insurance quotes that would help me decide for the best option to choose from.

Hey! it says, I can beat the rate increase predicted accordingly by the Insurance Information Institute. As of information provided I have to make sure to check if the insurer offers a 6-month or 12-month payment plan to help me manage my auto insurance payments better. Well, what I found with the brochure of this car insurance is that they really provided me with information that counts.

The brochure also mentioned, that it offers an auto insurance comparison application that would guide me to evaluate multiple rates from best auto insurance coverage for my budget. This is the hottest deal I found today. to choose this one. And I just cannot shut my mouth, I have to share this with friends today. Hop in, don't take the risk, let's take this deal fast and do it now!

WFW: International Womens Day

To all of us women, great or small, we will never forget how Christ died for us so we may live and enjoy the blessings of being a woman......go, go, go, girls. God Loves Us! Let us celebrate the International Womens Day Today with a blast!

Thankful Thursday

This week was full of surprises and we thank the Lord for all the surprises he provided us. The most exciting one and we are thankful of it was...

Fourteen former students who graduated from our College drop by the house for a surprise visit. We were really tongue tied when my husband opened the door and lo....who do you see.... 14 of them.....shrieking at our door and greeting us a happy afternoon....whoaaaaaa......surprise...big surprise....we were hugging, hand shaking, shoulder tapping and really laughing. We were curious how they knew we are in this place, (we are upgrading from a university now, with contract of three years). They chorus that they asked from those who knew us. Wow....we had fun, the talked went from their college experiences and the work they have now. Majority of them are nurses, some are teachers, one has started a business in health products, another one is going to New Zealand two weeks from now, one is enrolled in a graduate program. Our previous house was home to all students, we welcome them as if they are our children and now they have come home again....I was teary eyed when they each bade goodbye...another round of hugs....embraces.....of my I missed our former students now mature professionals working in different companies, mission field, trying to carve a life meant for service to the Lord. They remembered, dropped by to say how we are doing.....and we really missed them. Thank you Lord for, friendships and relationships formed with these young people. Our only dream is for each one of them to be strong in their faith always and serve the Lord.
