I am blessed today!


Happiness is the realization of God in the heart. Happiness is the result of praise and thanksgiving, of faith, of acceptance; a quiet tranquil realization of the love of God despite all trials in life. And I wanna thank all who remembered me on my very special day. It may not be a perfect day but I am blessed that God manifested his love for me.

Be blessed and be a blessing! 


Signed: 05/08/2013

Today, I am blessed!






Today, I receive all of God’s love for me.
Today, I open myself to the unbounded, limitless, overflowing abundance of God’s universe.
Today, I open myself to Your blessings, healing, and miracles.
Today, I open myself to God’s Word so that I become more like Jesus every day.
Today, I proclaim that I am God’s Beloved.

I am God’s Servant,
I am God’s Powerful Champion,
And because I am blessed,
I am blessing the whole world,
In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

AMEN!

CHEER UP!

During my downfall times and troubles, FAILURE was my best enemy! It always brought me to the lowest point of my life. I lost confidence and started contemplating other stuff that could make it even worse. Yes, I have done wrong. I knew it! And I considered that these are all my consequences in life and no one could ever help me except myself. Even if I ask for help from anyone. Still the only person that could help is myself.

There are times that I walked in a strange streets with nobody, nowhere to go or nowhere to stay. Needing someone that time to join me that might simply ease depression inside me. To feel that some kind of hope that someone does care about me. But none. Asked myself with two questions, am I in a right path? What is my purpose of having myself here?

One day, I received a letter containing below:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Fernand,

I believe in you. If I didn't, I wouldn't have made you into such an amazing and wonderful person. I believe in you so much, I planted dreams in your heart. Dreams that will bless you and bless the world. Dreams that that will make you grow in love and will mature in your soul. Yes, I will use you to share My light and love to many.

So believe in yourself. Even when you fail. Never give up on yourself. Failure is an important part of your success. Look around and you'll discover that the most successful people are those who have failed the most.

Trust in Me. I trust in you!

Know the difference between paths and purpose. Even if your chosen path fails, never give up on your sacred purpose. When you write your dreams, include the details that you desire. Your imagination will inspire you. But don't be attached to the details. Surrender to my surprises and open yourself to My abundance. For I have the best blessings and the perfect miracles for you, far better than what you can think of or imagine.

Nourish your soul in My Love and My Word. Nourish your soul with other like-minded Dreamers who have fire in their hearts.

Now GO, My child, and share My love and light to all those around you.

Always remember that I believe in you.



Cheering you on,

God

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After reading the letter with teary-eyed I said:

"Thank you for everything Lord! I TRUST YOU!"

I'm So Blessed My Lord I Can See You


I'm so blessed my Lord I can see you in all the lovely things, so fine and true. I see you in the beauty of the flowers and the rain. I see you between the lines of a sweet refrain.

I'm so blessed my Lord I can see you even when I'm lonely and in pain. I see you in the beauty of the stars at night. I see you in my life and I feel alright.

I'm so blessed my Lord I can see you in the smile of a baby, sweet and true. I can see you in the eyes of my very best friends I see you in these bonds just like your love that never ends.

I see you Lord in sorrow and in happiness. I see you in the glory of sweet success. I see you Lord every hour, everyday I can see you Lord whenever I pray.

When I pray... I can see you Lord.

Thank you, Lord! :)

A very interesting FACTS about BANANA


This is interesting. After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.

But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

DEPRESSION:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS:
Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.



ANEMIA:
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

BLOOD PRESSURE:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.


BRAIN POWER:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

CONSTIPATION:
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

HANGOVERS:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

HEARTBURN:
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

MORNING SICKNESS:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

MOSQUITO BITES:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

NERVES:
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system..

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

ULCERS:
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL:
Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, 'A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!'

Please share this to everyone! :)

PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time! I will add one here; want a quick shine on our shoes?? Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the shoe...polish with dry cloth. Amazing fruit !!! ^_^

Inspiring Story

One day, a rich dad took his son on a trip. Wanted to show him how poor someone can be. They spent time on the farm of a poor family.

On the way home, dad asked, "Did you see how poor they are? What did you learn?".

Son said, "We have one dog, they have four, we have pool, they have rivers, we have lanterns at night, they have stars, we buy foods, they grow theirs, we have walls to protect us, they have friends, we have encyclopedias, they have Bible."

Then they headed, "Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are."

MORAL LESSON: It's not about money that make us rich, it's about simplicity of having God in our lives.

Please Share. :')

IN FAIRNESS


Just had a party with colleagues. Checked-in at the 26th/Floor with a 2bedroom Loft type(2-storey) fully furnished suites. Food and drinks around me, karaoke, chitchats and the fun. I didn't drink that much but sung a lot of songs. :D The party ended the next day and woke up with headaches not because of hang-over but lacked of sleep. I forgot it was already Sunday that I need to rush out and prepare to go earlier to attend for mass, September 18, 2011.

Headed right away to Sanctuario de San Antonio at Forbes Park, Mckinley. I was touched by the homily of the priest (sorry I forgot the name). Allow me to share some relevant reflection about the Gospel.

For God has been accused of sleeping on his job many times over. They say, he does not answer prayers right away. He delays. Why does he allow evil things to happen? In the parable of the workers who showed up early accuse God for being unfair, because he treats the early birds and the latecomers equally. He pays them the same amount of wages. Seemingly, he condones indiscipline and sluggishness, when everyone should be up on their toes.

The evangelist Matthew writes the parable to defend God. God is God and he has his way of doing things. He has his own measuring stick and a way of reckoning time. He does not follow the system of weights and measurements that existed in his time. Now we use the metric, or the English system, or the Greenwich mean time.

We, humans, work for food and survival. Our reward depends on how much time and energy we have invested in our work. Our salaries are deducted when we report late or absent. We are promoted to a higher paying position if we meet the standards, if we are efficient and produce the target margin. We can be kicked out of the job if we are not performing according to expectations.

But GOD has a mysterious way of dealing with us. His reward system depends on the generosity of his heart, not on our efforts or measuring devices no matter how sophisticated they are. He computes according to the abundance of his heart. He has an infinite supply of love.

The Gospel story reminds us not to impose our terms on GOD. We should not make him act like a human being, in fairness to him. Our total well-being is his top priority. He encourages those who have strayed away from him to return to him as soon as possible. He does not care whether we have ignored Him for so long now. He wants us to go back to Him. God does not discriminate against the late penitents, in fairness to them.

Indeed, God has been fair to us. He does not sleep. He is always on the lookout to welcome us who repent even at the last minute.

I was able to maximize my weekend vacation. Office Party plus Eucharistic celebration with inspiring homily. And In fairness, I had a great weekend! God is really good. :)

Failure Is A Lesson

For those who appear in my life, whether to help or to harm, are all given by God. I have to meet all of them with a peaceful heart and with a warrior spirit without hesitation to get back in the struggle. I may fail many times, but in failing I know I will learn from it, and in my learning, I will find my own way realizing that without overcoming those obstacles, I would never have realized my potential, strength and will power of heart.

Even my bad experiences can be learned from. Those lessons are my hardest and probably the most important ones. I appreciate every moment and take from it everything that I possibly can, for I already know that I may be able to experience it again and again. And in this life, it is not how many times we stumble, it is not how many times we failed. But it is how we stand up and try again and again and again.

From many inspiring books and articles I've read, I have learned that we can develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success. There are no mistakes in life, only lessons. And my lessons will keep on repeating themselves... until learned. :')



All I Need For Now!

I wanna go to a place where I could find peace of mind.
I wanna go to a place where I could only hear the falling leaves.
I wanna go uphill and see the wonderful creation of GOD.
I wanna lay down on the grass and relax with no worries.

I wanna feel the natural serenity of a tropical rainforest.
I wanna feel the fresh air keeps brushing my face.
I wanna hear the birds singing flying down the trees.
I wanna hear the calm soothing sound of the reflective riverstream.



I wanna go away and skip from city lifestyles.
I wanna go away from busyness and workloads.
I wanna go away from the noise and restlessness.
I wanna go away and express sadness, loss and anxieties.

I wanna hear the real sound of silence.
I wanna live and grow in silence.
Just like nature trees, flowers and grass that grows in silence.
Just like the sun and moon that moves in silence.

All I need is silence to be able to find my SOUL...

LET'S PRAY for the WHOLE WORLD!

LUCIA REVEALS THE THIRD SECRET OF FATIMA

Regardless of whatever Creed or Religion, it is better to be prepared and be in good terms with GOD who created us; for we never know when we will be leaving this world.....


LAST SECRET OF FATIMA

The Church has given permission to reveal to the people the last part of the message. The Blessed Virgin appeared to three children in Fatima, Portugal , in 1917, this is a proven fact;one of these children was Lucia, (died 2-13-05).

She was a cloistered nun, and lived in a monastery in Portugal. Lucia disclosed the message for the first time; to Pope Pius Xll who, after reading , sealed it and stored it away without making it public. Later Pope John XXIII read it and, in the same manner as his predecessor, he kept it out of the public eye because he knew that once revealed; it would bring desperation and panic to mankind,

But now the time has come, and permission has been granted from Pope John Paul II to reveal it to the children of God; not to create panic, but to make God's people aware of this important message and be prepared.

The Virgin told Lucia:
'Go, my child, and tell the world what will come to pass during the 1950's - 2000's. Men are not practicing the Commandments that God has given us. Evil is governing the world and is harvesting hate and resentment all over. Men will fabricate mortal weapons that will destroy the world in minutes!... where half of the human race will be destroyed. The war will begin against Rome , and there will be conflicts amongst religious orders...

God will allow all natural phenomena like smoke, hail, cold, water, fire, floods, earthquakes, winds and inclement weather to slowly batter the planet. These happenings will come to pass before the year 2012.!!!! "For those who don't/won't believe..... . . this is the time..... Your beloved mother told you. Those lacking charity towards others, in words & deeds and those who do not love their neighbour like my beloved Son has loved you all ....... cannot survive! They will wish to have died.

God will punish severely those who do not believe in him, those who despise him and those who did not have time for him." 'I call upon all of you to come to my son Jesus Christ. God will help the world, but all of those who do not show fidelity and loyalty will be destroyed!'


Father Agustin, who lives in Fatima , said that Pope Paul VI gave him permission to visit Sister Lucia,a cloistered nun (she did not leave the monastery nor was allowed to receive any visitors). Father Agustin said that she received him greatly overwhelmed and told him: 'Father, Our Lady is very sad because nobody is interested in her prophecy of 1917, though the righteous are walking through a narrow path, the evil ones are walking through an ample road that is leading them straight
to their destruction! Believe me, Father, the punishment will come very soon. 'Many souls will be lost and many nations will disappear from the earth.

But, in the middle of all these, if men reflect, pray and practice sincerity, good deeds, kindness and respect, the world can be saved. However, if men persist with evil ways....greed, hatred, selfish acts, rivalry, and rif, the world will be lost forever!. The time has come for all to pass on the message of our Blessed Lady to their families, friends, and to the entire world.

Continue praying, make penitence and sacrifices. We are close to the last minute of the last day and the catastrophes are near. Due to this, many that were far from the Church will return to the open arms of the Church of Jesus Christ.

The joining of the churches will result in one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church; England , Russia , China , Jews, Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus,Protestants, etc.. All will return believing and
worshipping God our Creator, in his beloved Son and in Blessed Mother Virgin Mary.'


WHAT AWAITS US ???

Everywhere there will be 'Peace Talks', but punishment will come.

A MAN IN A VERY IMPORTANT POSITION WILL BE ASSASSINATED AND THIS WILL
PROVOKE THE WAR.

A POWERFUL ARMY WILL DOMINATE ALL THROUGH EUROPE AND THE NUCLEAR WAR WILL COMMENCE.

This war will destroy everything; darkness will fall over us for 72 hours (3 days) and the one third of humanity that survives this obscurity and sacrifice, will commence to live a new era; they will be good people.

On a very cold night, 10 minutes before midnight, A GREAT QUAKE will shake the earth for 8 hours. This will be the third signal that God Is, who governs the earth. The righteous and those who propagate the faith and the message of the Lady of Fatima is : 'ONE SHOULD NOT FEAR, DO NOT BE AFRAID'.

WHAT TO DO??? : Bow your heads, kneel down and ask God for forgiveness. Because, only what is good and is not under the power of evil will survive the catastrophe. In order for you to prepare and remain alive and safe, I will give you the following signs: ANGUISH AND IN A SHORT PERIOD THE EARTHQUAKE WILL COMMENCE... THE EARTH WILL SHAKE.....

The shake will be so violent that will move the earth 23 degrees and then it will return it to its normal position. Then, total and absolute darkness will cover the entire planet... All the evil spirits will be mingling around and free, doing harm to all those souls that did not want to listen to this message and those who did not want to repent.

To the faithful souls, remember to light the blessed candles, prepare a sacred altar with a crucifix in order to communicate with GOD and implore for His infinite mercy.... All will be dark; and IN THE SKY A GREAT MYSTIC CROSS will appear to remind us the price that his beloved Son had to pay for our redemption.

In the house the only thing that can give light will be the HOLY CANDLES... Once lit, nothing will put them off until the three days of darkness are over. Also, you should have holy water that should be
sprinkled abundantly on windows and doors. The Lord will protect the property of the chosen ones.... Kneel down before the powerful cross of my beloved Son, pray the Rosary and after each Hail Mary you must pray the following:

'Oh God forgive us our sins, preserve us from the fires of hell, take all souls to heaven, especially those who are in more need of thy mercy. Blessed Virgin Mary, protect us, we love you, save us and save the world'.

Pray 5 Creeds and the Rosary which is the secret to my immaculate Heart. All those who believe in my words go and take the message to everyone, DO NOT FEAR! FEAR NOTHING DURING THE LORD'S GREAT DAY. Talk to all, now that there is time. Those who keep quiet will be responsible for all those souls who will perish in ignorance. All those who pray humbly the rosary will have the protection of heaven. Those who are bound to die, I will help them die in peace, and they will
be holy when they enter the other world.

I wish all my children to attend mass every first Friday and every first Saturday of each month; to confess and receive Holy Communion; and in doing so, save the world from its TOTAL DESTRUCTION!!

When the earth shakes no more, those who still do not believe in our Lord will perish in a horrible way: The wind will bring gas and it will disperse it everywhere, then the sun will rise. Maybe you will survive this catastrophe.

Do not forget that God's punishment is holy and
ONCE IT HAS STARTED YOU SHOULD NOT LOOK OUTSIDE, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE!!!!
GOD DOES NOT WANT ANY OF HIS GOOD CHILDREN TO SEE WHEN HE PUNISHES THE
SINNERS..... All this encompasses with the writings of the Holy scriptures. Read on the New Testament: Lucas 21-5:121, 12:19, 20:20, 29:33 | Letters of St Paul 3 - 8 - 14, Isaiah 40, 1:5:9. You must understand that God allows all this to happen. The Pope
and Bishops are now awaiting another message that speaks about repentance and prayer. Please remember that God's words are not a threat.... but GOOD NEWS.... Please reproduce these pages and send them to all you know so we all can have the opportunity to repent and be saved.

We do not know if those receiving this message believe or not in GOD, but just think that, if you are receiving this message it is for a good reason!! from God who created us and loves us so much!

Our Creator is giving us the chance to be saved, no matter what religion or creed we may be. If you don't believe in this message, at least send it to others, it costs you nothing. To all those receiving it, they can have the opportunity to judge and decide for themselves. Remember, we can avoid a great deal of evil if we practice the Commandments that Our Loving Father God gave us.... Just 10 simple ways, that if we all put into practice we can obtain God's pardon.

Amen.

Please Re-post and help mankind be informed!

Everything Happens For A Reason

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there. They serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be, your roommate, your neighbor, professor, long lost friend, lover or even a complete stranger who, when you lock your eyes with them, you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way. And sometimes things happens to you and at the time they seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection, you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would never have realized your potential, strength, will power of heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck, Illness, injury, love, lost moments or true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of the soul. Without these tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smooth paved, straight flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.

These people you meet who affect your life and successes and downfalls you experience, they are the ones who creates who you are. Even the bad experiences can be learned from. Those lessons are the hardest and probably the most important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or break your heart... Forgive them, for they have helped you learn about TRUST and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them. Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen, let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it. I wish you all the best in your endeavors as well as struggles in life. Have a fighting spirit and never hesitate to get back in the struggle.

BUYING TIME

A man came home from work late again, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year-old son waiting for him at the door.
“Daddy, may I ask you a question?”
“Yeah, sure, what is it?” replied the man.
“Daddy, how much money do you make an hour?
“That’s none of your business! What makes you ask such a thing?” the man said angrily.

“I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?” pleaded the little boy.
“If you must know, I make $20.00 an hour.”
“Oh,” the little boy replied, head bowed. Looking up, he said, “Daddy, may I borrow $10.00 please?”

The father was furious. “If the only reason you wanted to know how much money I make is just so you can borrow some to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. I work long, hard hours everyday and don’t have time for such childish games.”
The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even madder about the little boy’s questioning. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think he may have been a little hard on his son. Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $10.00, and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.
“Are you asleep son?” he asked.
“No daddy, I’m awake,” replied the boy.

“I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier,” said the man. “It’s been a long day and I took my aggravation out on you. Here’s that $10.00 you asked for.”
The little boy sat straight up, beaming. “Oh, thank you daddy!” he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow, he pulled out some more crumpled up bills.
The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at the man.

“Why did you want more money if you already had some?” the father grumbled.
“Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,” the little boy replied.

“Daddy, I have $20.00 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?”

DESTINY

"Your destiny shall not be allotted to you, but you shall choose it for yourselves.” — Plato

“Destiny is something not be to desired and not to be avoided. a mystery not contrary to reason, for it implies that the world, and the course of human history, have meaning.” — Dag Hammarskjold

"We plan our lives according to a dream that came to us in our childhood, and we find that life alters our plans. And yet, at the end, from a rare height, we also see that our dream was our fate. It's just that providence had other ideas as to how we would get there. Destiny plans a different route, or turns the dream around, as if it were a riddle, and fulfills the dream in ways we couldn't have expected" — Ben Okri

“Almost nothing important that ever happens to you happens because you engineer it. Destiny has no beeper; destiny always leans trenchcoated out of an alley with some sort of “Pssst” that you usually can’t even hear because you’re in such a rush to or from something important you’ve tried to engineer.” — David Foster Wallace

Your Kindness

I thought I could hear your angry words to sear my soul.
I know, that I don't deserve this another chance
But then suddenly your kindest words I've ever heard.

There's no more excuse, no one to blame, and nowhere to hide.
Your eyes have found my failures and my pain.
You understands my weaknesses and my shame.
And yet you never leave by my side.

Your kindness leads me to repentance.
In all that I do, I Know that You love me so.
And that makes me want to love You more.
