What is ahead of us in this year 2010? Many of us has mixed emotion. Would it be a
promising year? Would it be a lucky year? No one could give a clear answer.
But what this year all about may come and start in our way of looking at it.
People of faith must believed that this coming year is a year of full of hope. Assurance does not come from us but, it comes from the One who hold tomorrow.The One who hold the time, the One who hold our hand.
It is nice to think that before leaving 2009, we open ourselves with a positive
thoughts that we will be blessed by our God . And declare to receive His blessings in the coming year.
Be blessed and become a blessing to others.
Year 2009 will close but our mission will continue as we journey year 2010.

The past weeks for me was a stressful due to the demand of my ministry in the school and to the accident happen to the old woman who stay with me in my house. She is not related to me by blood, but since she is close to our family no immediate family cared for her I feel morally bound to reach out this old woman. The woman was hit into hard object good that not so serious with some bruised in her left and right shoulders. And every time I nurse her I always think that this is Love in Action.
Just this morning I reflected that this woman is third old folks that I cared. First was my mother, then my father, and now this one. But I believe God has a purpose of giving me this mission. For the past months, I keep on pondering of helping people through my wealth. That is why almost everyday I pray Bo Sanchez Millionaires Prayer. Now I reflected that God is calling me not just of dreaming to have more and just give but concretize love into action directly to the person in need.

Was a CURSE? A BLESSING? One may say it does both. Yes it destroyed many things and lives, but also made Filipinos more generous. That even poor Filipinos were touched and opted to give and share their time, money and goods to the victims. For those whom could not give money and material things, they still give in forms of good wishes and prayers to victims.
Spirit of generosity was not only evoke by Filipinos but also other people in other countries.
Businessmen, artists, showbiz personalities and people of good will share to us.
We living at the southern part of the country is moved and at this moment we keep on mobilizing and educating children and young people to share and give what they can give.

"Blessed is the Leader Who Knows How to Lead others without being dictatorial or Bossy".
Leadership is a gift. Not everyone is born to be a leader. To leader someone is not asking one to follow but to walk besides the other. Walking side by side leadership encourages subordinates to work what the leader is doing or working.
There are types of leadership that seemingly not dictatorial or bossy , but that leader is imposing himself believing that he is the leader and what he wants will surface out. It's not directly dictating but in real sense he or she is in manner of manipulation. this is mis-use and abuse of power.
One dictates because he believes that he has much power but the reality one use power because he /she cannot lead. True leadership empowers. Good leader animates people and move them into action. He has the power within, and that power is a gift.

Yesterday, I visited my step-mother. It is a regular visit that I am doing almost every weekend Because my step-mother was alone at that day, I have to stay with her overnight. As went to bed I pause a moment of reflection looking of where I am now and the reason of all my activities, from home to work, to church involvement and visiting and looking to what is happening to my step-mother. I came to reflect that this courage, strength is not only of myself but comes from God. Though I was tired on that very night, but I vividly feel and understand the unconditional love of God to me. I see this undertakings as my mission and the core of this mission is Love It is love that motivates me give and serve to this poor elderly woman .

As went out from the said office and waiting for a Jeep going to my work as gazed the long winding road the beauty of the rainbow fascinated me so much. It is clearly seen by my naked eyes. As I stare in it, my heart rejoices. rainbow gives positive spirit in me this morning. The rainbow that I keep on gazing brings me recall God's covenant with Noah. The rainbow that I 've seen brings me to assurance of God's promises, His faithfulness and love to His people. It's beauty with different colors symbolizes the colorful and beauty of life. That life is beautiful and colorful. The different colors signifies the different emotions of a person.

I was fortunate to see this Island last February 22, 2009 which the sand is clearly white . In this Island you can witness the rising of the sun and its falling ( sunset ). It is ideal to visit this Island dawn up to 7:00 0'clock in the morning.
The island as you can see it, form letter C. And its only during low tide that this island is so visible. So you can't stay in this island as you want. There many beautiful spots in these Island,

Every day Ihave to commute three times in going to my work.
One even before sunrise heavy rains come. No choice I have to go to my work.
AsI take my second ride , the car that I take sudenly stop. Something wrong with one of the wheels. How bad! I have to rash to find another ride amidst of the falling rain. Good that I have
good rain coat given to me by my high classmate. Along the road amidst of the rain waiting for
another ride. The situation could be disgusting, erratating but what calm me is that as I turn
look to the shoulder of the road. The poor driver without any caot under the heavy rain tunning his jeep and manipulate the wheel inorder to change it. If we passengers look pitty
there is one guy who struggle than me amidst of the cold heavy rain.
Sometimes we can think we are the most neglected person in the world. We though nothing
good would come to us. But let us remember , that if we suffer, other sometimes suffer more than us.

pray and believe . Because prayers are missing in my routine.
And for this day, I allowed myself to be vulnerable not in front of the crowd
but in front of own self.
It was once said, " unexamined life is worthless"...The two days retreat that was held last January 8-9, 2009 at Nazareth Retreat House was blessing and opportunity given by God to me. Thru this retreat I have learned the importance of forgiveness to our life as a believer and follower of Jesus Christ.
An activity about " Recognizing my Wounded World ", was the most uplifting and enlightening to me because through this activity I was to recognize and share the message of my heart. The activity opens my eyes to the reality that I am not alone carrying the baggage's if different circumstances. I feel the sympathey and sincerity of my co-retreatants especially when they offered prayers to my mother who is struggling as a cancer patient. I feel the goodness and the embrace of God whenever I look at and see my co-retreatants because I know they are all God's blessing to me
I am thankful for this wonderful experience which allows me to share and celebrate life with God's providence and Will. by:beth
"REST WITH GOD"
Life is full of colors; colors that represents into different emotions and experiences that leads our self to grow as who we are, and change for the better. Retreat is a moment for me to let myself rest and think about of what is happening in my life.It is a call of God to surrender all my hatred and angers to others. It is a ways where in I could forgive others and a tool for letting myself be close to God. anonymous
"UNEXAMINED LIFE IS NOT WORTH LIVING"... This is the most striking lines that opens my mind amidst of doubts, uncertainty and confusions about life. The retreat was a helpto me to examine my life. it was avenue for for me see my life, my weaknesses, my strength and to recognize my wounded heart. I was able also to communicate with Godwholeheartedly. And see the purpose of my existence.The opportunity of seeing the lives of others that leads me lesson and reason tobe thankful especially to GOD. I blessed because I learn how to forgive. mem
LET GO......Learning to let go of the past and move on to a better horizon, that's one of the many things I have learned from a retreat Mistakes cannot be straighten by another mistakes. I learned to admit my mistakes and submit every thing to God. I learn to forgive myself of my mistakes thus helping me to forgive others. I realize how beautiful life is, especially the difficulties and that we were experienced for God will always be there with me no matter what happens, He will not leave me.nhong
