Unparalleled Greatness

          Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.
                                                                  Isaiah 12:6 NIV

You have a powerful friend. He is more powerful than any world leader. There's no chance that he will ever be voted out of office or forced off his throne. His reign is eternal; his greatness unparalleled. He has placed a millions suns in the reaches of  space and fixed the planets in their magnificent orbits. This great and wonderful God cares about you.
You may never fully understand the extent of your good fortune, but it is yours just the same, along with all the benefits that come with knowing such a mighty God. Rejoice. All things are possible for you. source: moments of peace for a woman's heart

A UK getaway

     Few weeks ago, my cousin contacted me inquiring about when I am going to visit her.  I told her if there is no money involved at that time, I will pack my things and hop in the plane she just laugh. That time I have no idea that there is such thing as discount codes for thomsons holiday. My mind is set in terms of vacation that I will spend a lot of money and not knowing there are many opportunity like discount codes offered online. 
     You see I have two cousins in UK they worked their as a nurse and their family is with them too. They have been living there for more than eight years and I missed my nephews and a niece that I have not seen in person only in pictures. Which I am excited when I told hubby about the discount codes from Thompson. He told me to book it right away if given a chance I can find a very good deal. My cousin told me to visit her on summer because there will be a gathering of all Filipinos in that country and she could leave her work at that time. I am also very willing to visit her on summer since here in the US and UK I think we both have the same season.

Someone Worth Knowing

                              Skilled living gets its start in the Fear-of-God, insight into life from 
                                                   knowing a Holy God. Proverbs 9:10 

 I remember when I first know my husband. It was in the internet that we meet, it so happened that he got my email and saw my photo that he immediately emailed me. The first email he wrote five sentences only I get curious I told myself I've got to know this person he is very stingy in words. It made me excited if  I meet people who don't barely like to say something because I am the kind of person who talk for hours. So, I emailed him back and after emailing each other for two years and chatting over the internet we meet after two
 years. Knowing a person is a day to day journey we are human we have our ups and down moment that sometimes we get easily flare up with simple unintentional word or words uttered. And when I like to know a person I am intent on knowing you and try to accept you and understand you as you are. Just like......

God is also a friend worth knowing. Unlike the wooden statues some worship, he is accessible. He wants to be known. He's told you all about himself in his Word, and he waits enthusiastically for the dialogue to begin.
If your heart longs to know him, to grasp who he really is and what he wants from you, sit down with an open heart and an open Bible and get to know the God of the universe, who loves you with an everlasting love. source: www.bethanyhouse.comMome

                           Wonderful Father: Thank you for reaching out to me and opening the door 
                                to a loving, everlasting relationship between the two of us. 
                                     Thank you for allowing me to know you. Amen.

My Father's 23rd death anniversary

It's been 23rd years since my papa passed away it feels like it happened yesterday. I still remember we were at the hospital and we gathered around him when he breath his last breath. My mama was at his bedside the whole time and I see how my mother let my father go. She said "we will be okay do not worry" then she kissed him and he breath the last breath and he was gone. Twenty three had passed but still I always shed tears and get sad. I always prayed for his soul I  know he is with God and he is happy. I only wish he got to see his four apo's because I know for sure it would bring joy and smiles on his face. For my papa on this special day, the day he left this world and meet his creator........we missed you and we love you forever!

Coral Reef

Summer is over and fall is here. Nonetheless, vacation at this time is not an option taken for granted we can still plan to go for a vacation no matter what season we have. The other day we were cleaning our barn and saw this aquarium stuff. I asked hubby who owns it and he told me it was his daughters stuff. I look each one of the material and they do look very true.  I love aquariums I like to see fish swimming twenty-four hours seven days. I also like to watch other species to compete the gold fish or other species. In a home aquarium, species are not too many but in those aquariums that are huge the display of species are awesome. One time we were in Florida and saw these beautiful penguins and they are so beautiful! We have here in Michigan a restaurant that has huge aquariums I like to call it wall aquariums and the fish are so beautiful they come from different colors. Some you feel they like you some you think they do not like you. It wonders me if they know that we are watching them and that we are happy to see them. It was within our conversation that they talk about coral reef aquarium and zoo aquarium. I never thought there are many names of aquarium what I do know is the plain aquarium and that is it. I remember when we visited this huge aquarium displayed are the beautiful decorations you think that you are inside. The colors are awesome and it just makes me smile and feel happy. A simple decoration that we know it is not the natural thing makes us happy what more the fish and other species see it they may think they are still in the same habitat that they used to live. I am thankful that there are people who try to make aquariums looks true or close enough to the natural thing it is an effort that comes from the heart.

Water World Wednesday

                                                  Welcome to WATER WORLD WEDNESDAY
                                                                    Episode 25, Year 1

Right at this very moment our temperature is 51F. I went outside to cut some sunflowers for my table centerpiece and it is cold and windy. But the kind of weather that somehow I missed last this summer. And because it is cold and windy we have from time to time experience rain. After the every rain I like to get out and walk around and take some photos. Though it is windy and it is hard to focus on the subject somehow I manage to have some decent photos with water on it. ^_^

This water drops are hanging from the vine of the morning glory. My morning glory was kind of late. It grew fast when it is already almost fall I do hope it will blossom soon. ^_^

Time to showcase your water photos here. One rule is to visit fellow bloggers and have fun blog hopping!

Miniature Pink & Yellow Rose

It pays to plant. I bought this at a Rose Show for $6.00 a piece. I bought three different colors and look what it gave me. A beauty of nature that makes my heart happy! Do you know I talked to all my flowers? I asked them to show me their beautiful flowers and they always did. Much more than what I expect ^_^ Do you also talk to your plants?

                  Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

Water World Wednesday

                                               Welcome to WATER WORLD WEDNESDAY
                                                                    Episode 24, Year 1

          Our temperature here in Michigan started to cool off. Early in the morning the air is crisp and cool and at night time no pesky mosquitoes because it is definitely cold. But still my flowers are blooming and do not know when they are going to start to wither but I don't wait for that time because I am going to pick them and put it in a vase. For now I have a good time taking photos with them using some spray. Yup I spray them with water and take photos. Got some good ones with water drops. 

Now, it is time to showcase your photos with water. One of the rule is to visit fellow bloggers by doing that it would make this linky to be fun.

Fix it!

We are almost in the middle of the month of September and the temperature here in Michigan is starting to cool off. However, driving by farms farmers is harvesting their crops and on the weekend, it is very nice to visit farm markets. In addition, this is the kind of weather I like it is not too hot or too cold and the annoying mosquitoes are gone!
The other day a friend of ours came to the house to ask my husband if he know somebody who can do well in a plumbing job. My husband refer to a person whom he know and he told his friend he can assure of him that he is really good in this kind of job. After his friend, left I told my husband it is not easy to find a good worker who can do his job well. We can find a Plumbing Company anywhere but Plumbers that are good in this field are very rare. That is why this person that hubby know he really recommended it to his friends because he can do his job well. Last February, my sister in law visited her son in Houston, Texas while hubby and I went to San Antonio. While they were in the town, she told us that her son’s house is flooded with water due to a water pipe leakage. Women do not know anything about this stuff so hubby told her to call Plumbers in Houston and ask somebody if anyone is available to visit her place right away. Good thing that they come immediately and look at the problem it was fix that day. We do not like our house to be flooded with out no reason. So knowing a good plumber in our area is necessary to know.

Yellow Flowers

Two days now we had a cold spill. From above 80's last week the temperature go down so quick to the 70F and last night the coolest is 51F. I think with this kind of weather it really gets toll to some people I don't feel so good. But I manage to take photos of my yellow flowers or flowers that has a shade of yellow.

                                            Sunflower, marigold and pure yellow marigold

         This are all my sunflower. You know what? I did not plant these sunflowers, it's the birds! I bought one bag of sunflowers seeds and I guess when they pick the seeds some get to the ground. But I do not care because look how beautiful it is. Hubby thought it won't bloom because it is kind of late but no way they did manage to show there beauty to me! ^_^

Happy Birthday Mama Mary

Mary was born to be the mother of the Savior of the world, the spiritual mother of all men, and the holiest of God's creatures. Because of her Son's infinite merits, she was conceived and born immaculate and full of grace. Through her, Queen of heaven and of earth, all grace is given to men. Through her, by the will of the Trinity, the unbelieving receive the gift of faith; the afflicted are tendered the works of mercy; and the members of Christ grow in likeness of their Head. In Mary all human nature is exalted. We rejoice in her birthday, as the Church has done from the earliest times. This is one of the three birthdays in the Church Calendar — the Birth of Jesus (December 25), the Birth of John the Baptist (June 24) and the Birthday of Mary. All three were born without original sin, although Mary and Jesus were conceived without sin, and St. John was cleansed of original sin while in the womb at the Visitation of Mary.
According to the 1962 Missal of Bl. John XXIII Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, today also commemorates St. Adrian. The liturgy of Our Lady's Birthday in Rome included a procession from the church of St. Adrian in the forum. St. Adrian was a Herculian Guard of the Roman Emperor Galerius Maximian. After becoming a convert to Christianity with his wife Natalia, Adrian was martyred at Nicomedia on March 4, 306.
Historically it is the feast of St. Corbinian, a Frank who spent fourteen years as a hermit and then went to Rome, where Pope Gregory II consecrated him bishop and sent him to evangelize Germany.
