The GRASS is greener on the other side?
I disagree.

We may have trials, but through God’s strength, we will overcome!

Nobody has a perfect life and we don’t know this just by merely looking at others.
People may seem happy and carefree, but we don’t know what stress they have to think about and feel everyday.

I wouldn’t want to change what God has given me, no matter the difficulty sometimes, because it is only difficult… sometimes.

And even on those times, I try to pause for a second and remember all the blessings He has given me, no matter how small.
Because when I do, I realize that no hardship is big enough compared to the faithfulness of God in my life. =)

Be thankful of the GRASS that was given to you. Now relax on it, build a playground, have a bbq and invite your loved ones over.
Enjoy it and see the potential!


Be Happy! Be Blessed!
Enjoy your weekend!

I was encouraged when I saw this at the doctor’s office the other day…
It’s derived from Psalm 23 but with captions.  I’m sorry, I don’t know who wrote the captions.
Anyway, I find this very powerful…. I thought I’d share this with you all.


The LORD Is My Shepherd

The LORD is my shepherd;That is relationship

I shall not want. That is supply

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:That is rest

He leadeth me beside the still waters.That is refreshment

He restoreth my soul:That is healing

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness That is guidance

for his name’s sake. That is purpose

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, That is testing

I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; That is protection

thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. That is discipline

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: That is hope

Thou anointest my head with oil;That is consecration

my cup runneth over.That is abundance

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: That is blessing

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD That is security

for ever.That is eternity

Love Quotes

Here are some Love Quotes I’ve gathered from the past few years. Happy reading!

Love Quote

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit
~Peter Ustinov

Take hold lightly, let go lightly, This is one of the great secrets of felicity in love.

Where love is concerned, too much is not even enough.

Love conquers all things.

All love is sweet, given or returned.

There is only one happiness in life, to love and be love.
~George Sand

The giving of love is an education in itself.

Love must be learned , and learned again and again, there is no end to it.

Pains of love be sweeter far than all other pleasures are.

To love is to place our happiness in the happiness of others.
~Von Leiboniz

I have enjoyed the happiness of the world, I have lived and loved.

There is always something left to love. And if you aint learned that, you ain’t learned that, you ain’t learned anything.

Love above all, the gift of oneself.

Last Sunday, we saw a couple that adopted a super adorable baby girl from Philippines. We heard about all the time, money and work that they had to go through for the adoption to go through.

They’re such a sweet couple and we’re very happy for them. How exciting that they now have a little angel they can call their own.

I’m always thankful of my children but more so after seeing this new family. I got reminded of how precious children are and how blessed we are that we are able to have children and entrusted by God to raise them and take care of them.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” (James 1:17)

I purchased 2 journals for a couple of girls at church who normally watches DS and plays with him before and after the service. They’re his official BIG sisters at church.

One had an initial T on it for TJ and another one had an initial J on it for Joy. DS gave TJ her notebook but Joy was out of town so she can get hers next time.

Anyway, I told TJ she can use the notebook to write her ideas down. The notebook is great way to store all their thoughts down. She likes it! I really wanted to encourage these girls to keep being creative. It worked for me!

Then my mom showed me the Scholastic book selection for ordering this month. I found a set of “I Spy” books. DS will be so excited when it arrives. I also ordered 2 books by Todd Parr. He already owns 2 of them (This is my hair and Underwear do’s and don’ts). His books are so colorful and fun.out It gets small children excited about the story.

And if you have the chance, visit his website www.toddparr.com. You will really like it!

Anyway, all this reading, creativity and a wonderful selection of books have further encouraged me to start working on my book for DS, yay!

Dan Zanes Live

DS’s all time favorite folk singer, Dan Zanes will be performing at the Royce Hall at UCLA on Saturday, March 14 and Sunday March 15. For more info, visit UCLALIVE.org

He released a new album entitled “Welcome Table” which is currently the CD we permanently have in my car thanks to DS. It’s a music collaboration of inspiration and religious songs.

We love the songs and we’re learning some spanish songs along the way too =)

Granito de Moztaza
Si tuvieras fe, si tuvieras fe, como un granito de mostaza Eso lo dice el señor

Si tuvieras fe, si tuvieras fe, como un granito de mostaza

Eso lo dice el señor

Tu le dirías a las montañas, muévanse, muévanse

Tu le dirías a las montañas, muévanse, muévanse

Y las montañas se moverán, se moverán, se moverán

Y las montañas se moverán, se moverán, se moverán

If you have faith, if you have faith, like a tiny seed
of mustard Thus saith the Lord our God…
Then you can say to the highest mountain
Move aside, move aside…
And yes the mountains will have to move…

Si tuvieras fe, si tuvieras fe, como un granito de mostaza
Fe con hechos y amor…
Tu cambiarías un poco al mundo y ayudarías la sociedad…
Los vecindarios mejorarán, mejorarán, mejorarán…
Y las montañas se moverán, se moverán, se moverán…
And yes the mountains will have to move…
Los vecindarios mejorarán, mejorarán, mejorarán…

More than Enough

I’d like to share with you this song that’s been such a great encouragement lately. This video is David Crowder playing “More than Enough” It reminds us that no matter what happens, even in this recession, we will be okay, because “Every need You satisfy me with Your love…”

All of You is more than enough for
All of me for every thirst and
Every need You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You
Is more than enough

You are my supply my breath of life
Still more awesome than I know
You are my reward worth living for
Still more awesome than I know

And all of You is more than enough for
All of me for every thirst and
Every need You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You
Is more than enough

You’re my sacrifice of greater price
Still more awesome than I know
You’re my coming King You’re everything
Still more awesome than I know

And all of You is more than enough for
All of me for every thirst and
Every need You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You
Is more than enough

More than I want
More than all need
More than I can say
You are more than enough for me


And last night, I had the opportunity to watch Joel Osteen on tv. It was my first time to take time tolisten to his sermon, I was a little turned off my him initially bacause he seemed a little too commercial. But as I listened to him last night, I realized that he is a good preacher. He doesn’t stray away from his point, but discusses it from different aspects. I appreciate that!

His message last night was about prophesying for yourself. He mentions about us filling our minds with either positive or negative thoughts and how exactly that happens.

“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!” Psalms 107:2

He discussed how God’s blessings are available for the taking. All we have to do is ask and declare it! Works for me, PRAISE GOD!

It’s gonna be a wonderful day!
