God is a Great Provider


My youngest daughter is taking up summer classes this year.  Her summer subject load is 9 units in nursing course.  Her school tuition reached an exact amount of P11,184.00. I have sold one pig for this and the proceeds was only P9,025.00.  I was really worried where I can get the balance of P2,159.00.  One day, I did not expect  a mail containing a check from the GSIS (Government Service Insurance System). This is amounting to P3,400.00 as educhild reimbursement  from the said office.  When my kids were still young, I get an educational plan for them being a government employee before. This is only very minimal amount but it really helps.  I cannot help to say, GOD IS A GREAT PROVIDER.

A Wonderful Friend

No comments:

We are four in the family.  I am the eldest. We inherited a property from my grandmother.  This is 10,818 square meters.The land is a big hill and it has a big limestone deposit. Because of financial need, we sold this property to my brother who is a seafarer. Then time comes when we found a market for the limestone. We ask our brother to give us a little share of the expected profit. I was really disappointed because he is hesitant to give us what we ask from him.  I told my best friend about this. I was really consoled of what he said to me. This was his message I would like to share : just pray for enlightenment and guidance to your brother and that this business will not tear your family apart but rather make you prosperous and united. God Bless!

Happy Memories

No comments:

Last March 31, 2012 marked the start of our happy memories in our family. My in laws visited my family for a vacation in our place. Those present were my parents in-law, one brother in-law and his family and my sister in-law with her child and mother in-law who just came from Canada. My father and mother in-law stayed with us in our house and the rest checked-in in one of the beach resort in Panglao Island, Bohol, Philippines. They spent their vacation with us for four days. Everybody enjoyed their vacation as we visited the major tourist sites in the province. They proceeded to Jimalalud, Negros Oriental, Philippines for their Holy Week. I really missed their company as I know that this will happen only once in a while.

Notes on Health

No comments:
Sugars pose no major health threat except for an increased risk of dental caries. Excessive sugar intakes may displace needed nutrients and fiber and may contribute to obesity. A person deciding to limit daily sugar intake should recognize that not all sugars need to be restricted, just concentrated sweets with added sugars, which are high in kcalories and relatively lacking in other nutrients. Sugars that occur naturally in fruits, vegetables, and milk are acceptable.
Note: Energy is measured in kcalories.

Sharing Some Thoughts to Ponder

No comments:
We will not be judged by diplomas we received, money we have made or great things we have done. We will be judged by: I was hungry and you gave me food to eat; I was thirsty and you gave me water to drink; I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless and you took me in. by: "Mother Theresa"

The great aim of education is not knowledge but ACTION. by: Herbert Spencer

Love conquers all things, let us too surrender to LOVE.

Blessed Holy Weekend & Easter To All

No comments:

Hello folks! How was your Holy week? I am sure the other sides of the world has already celebrated Easter. As for our part, it is still Holy or the Black Saturday. My husband and I took our family to the Byzantine church yesterday to attend Good Friday. It was really nice because the priest and the people chants responses. They call it the vespers of the Great and Holy Friday. A procession with the death and Jesus taken down from the cross is painted in a mantle was held inside the church. And tonight,we are going to attend the Matins of the Great and Holy Saturday at the same Byzantine church of Saint Michael's in Sheffield, PA. 

On Easter Sunday, we are going to the Latin mass at Saint Anthony's Parish in Cambridge Springs, PA.

I took this pictures during Palm Sunday after we attended the Latin Mass. A family friend invited us to come to their home and I am appreciating their religious statues inside their house. I took pictures via Instagram and I thought these nostalgic looks really turned out very well. Hope you enjoy them.

Have a blessed Holy Weekend and Happy Easter to all!
