Thankful Thursday: My Favorite Thank You Song

To God Be the Glory
by Andrae Crouch

How can I say thanks
for the things you have done for me
Things so undeserved
Yet you give to prove your love for me
The voices of a million angels
Cannot express my gratitude
All that I am or ever hope to be
I owe it all to Thee

To God be the glory
To God be the glory
To God be the glory
For the things He has done
With His blood, He has saved me
By His power, He has raised me.
To God be the glory
For the things he has done

Just let me live my life
And let it be pleasing, Lord to Thee
And should I gain any praise,
Let it go to Calvary.

With His blood, He has saved me
By His power, He has raised me.
To God be the glory
For the things he has done.

A friend of my husband has invited us to spend the semestral break starting tomorrow up to Tuesday to Baguio City, the summer capital of the Philippines for FREE!....for free! and for the whole family. Everything will be paid for by them......God is good all the time, and I am expressing my heartfelt thanks to the Lord through the lyrics above! To my friends on the bloggersphere, let us thank the Lord for the things He has done although at time these are undeserved blessings to me a sinner.

Word Filled Wednesday

My WFW would focus on John 3:16 express in different languages which connect us all in one whole big circle, not withstanding, race, religion, color, age, status or belief.

For all of us out there. JOHN 3:16 says:

John 3:16 - English
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life."

John 3:16 - French
Car Dieu a tant aimé le monde qu'il a donné son Fils unique, afin que quiconque croit en lui ne périsse point, mais qu'il ait la vie éternelle.

John 3:16 - Spanish
Porque tanto amó Dios al mundo, que dio a su Hijo unigénito, para que todo el que cree en él no se pierda, sino que tenga vida eterna.

John 3:16 - Latin
Sic enim dilexit Deus mundum ut Filium suum unigenitum daret ut omnis qui credit in eum non pereat sed habeat vitam aeternam.

John 3:16 - German
Denn so hat Gott die Welt geliebt, daß er seinen eingeborenen Sohn gab, damit jeder, der an ihn glaubt, nicht verloren gehe, sondern ewiges Leben habe.

John 3:16 - Chinese

John 3:16 - Japanese

Juan 3:16 - Philippines

    Ito ay sapagkat sa ganitong paraan inibig ng Diyos ang sanlibutan kaya ipinagkaloob niya ang kaniyang bugtong na Anak upang ang sinumang sumampalataya sa kaniya ay hindi mapahamak kundi magkaroon ng buhay na walang hanggan.

In any translation or any language, the message from God is simple and clear. May you discover God's boundless love for your life today!

Foodie Movie: TCP


A rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great French chef despite his family's wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely - and certainly unwanted - visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy's passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down

Joke #2

An old preacher was dying. He sent a message for his doctor and his lawyer to come to his home. When they arrived, they were ushered up to his bedroom.

As they entered the room the preacher held out his hands and motioned for them to sit, one on each side of his bed. The preacher grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the ceiling.

For a time, no one said anything. Both the doctor and lawyer were touched and flattered that the preacher would ask them to be with him during his final moments. They were also puzzled; the preacher had never given them any indication that he particularly liked either of them.

They both remembered his many long, uncomfortable sermons about greed, covetousness and avaricious behavior that made them squirm in their seats.

Finally, the doctor said, "Preacher, why did you ask us to come?

The old preacher mustered up his strength, then said weakly, "Jesus died between two thieves.. and that's how I want to go."

Friday Fill-ins!

FFI we go!

1. One of my strongest beliefs is honesty, please pass it on.

2. My love is really huge!

3. The sky is cloudy with a threat of rain and wind and cold, so I have to do Friday Fill-Ins, yeheey.

4. A cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows is comforting to me.

5. I always thought I'd be a writer for children's books.

6. Last night I was tired and then I went outside to look at the full moon.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to resting, tomorrow my plans include visiting friends and Sunday, I want to go shopping with my daughter!

Best of the Best!

I am gearing towards going home after three years of fulltime study. By the time we go home we have to shift through things we packed away for the three years we are away from home. Our plan would include purchase of new furniture because we have sold most of our furniture when we came here in the big city. My sister referred me to rustic furniture she discovered because she said she has purchased some of their product line and she felt satisfied. Well, I have to do the same because I could be picky when it comes to home furniture. I just want to have the best and most comfortable of them all. I have to start saving right now so I can purchase the ones I place a check from the brochure I have seen from their furniture store. I kind of reserved some designs I like so when money is ready I could really purchase the ones that would suit my style, the lighting at home, the color scheme of the receiving area, the dining area and of course the best room in the house.....our bedroom....I want my new furniture just to fit in everything. I want a nice, undisturbed sleep, so part of that comfortability level I always long for would be furniture that says....I could be sleeping tight because everything is just right. Wish me luck and hope you will follow my lead.

GOD BLESS YOU. Dad, mom gemini and bro. Tedd. We Love you, remember that always.


Am so excited with what is going on with the blog site of "Things We Share" and I salute what she has done so far. It's about the PINK RIBBON DAY! More of it and am supporting you AND THE PINK RIBBON ADVOCACY GROUP!
Here's what the founders have to say:

October breast cancer month.

The pink that is coloring our lifes during the month of October. whether commercial or sincere, shouldn’t cover the reality of breast cancer itself. Worldwide, millions of people, women and men are suffering from breast cancer every day. And each and everyone of them feels the pain, the fear, the guilt, the uncertainty, the responsibility, the loss, being thrown back to the core essence of life. And let us not forget our loved ones we lost. May all of this being represented by this vulnerable appearing color.

However, the brightness of pink at the same time stands for hope and strength of each individual to fight its personal fight. It stands for the community making this personal fight a community responsibility. It stands for all the efforts of people; fund raisers, medical staff, researchers, students, and volunteers worldwide, working together to find the cure. It stands for the industry proving its mature responsibility towards manufacturing processes, ingredients and products. It stands for equal fundamental rights for all breast cancer survivors whether born in richness or in poverty anywhere on mother earth.

Pink Ribbon stands in my view for one thing that makes Pink Ribbon unique, a world wide solidarity of people and breast cancer organisations to stand together. We therefore dedicate October 2010 to the solidarity of all people. Let’s fight together!

Blag!.....meow! blag!......What's coming?

"Hey! what's the emergency all about?" My kids just arrived from school and all of a sudden the house erupted into chaos, simultaneously doors began banging. I was stunned on the event that just happened in front of me. Traffic in the house yesterday noon was so unusually uneventful until my two kids came barging in the front door. One shouted back...."Mom, where is my Halloween costume last year, I need it badly"? " What, you need it now"? I said, not understanding what's going on. My son, suddenly jumped in front of me and said in a rumble....."Mommy, I need mine too, we are going to practice our parts for the Halloween drama and we have three weeks more to go to memorized our lines." "Come on, mom, hurry, help me find the Halloween costume and the rest of the Halloween props that goes with it....come on...hurry up."
Oh my, that was yesterday, but I still have to look for the other pieces of some lost props. I have to go buy some of the needed Awesome Halloween Costumes paraphernalia today. Good day to I only have to call my friend who owns just a shop for these needs. I have five minutes more, got to go now and find those props. I don't want to be in another house traffic come five o'clock this afternoon.

Business in a Card

To be a pastor’s wife always have an opportunity for me to meet new acquaintances. It is such a privilege to have new friends every time we attend conferences, seminars and special gatherings my husband and me have to be invited. Occasions like these would always remind me to bring a stack of business cards. Yes, those small pieces of paper can make many things in the ministry of my husband.

Not only that, my friend whose working in an accounting firm also have her own accounting business cards ready every time she goes on an assignment or business travel. It broadens her connections and accountability to her work and other people too!
