ChildHaus 2014

Last quarter of 2013, my sister and I decided to have our birthdays (in 2014) be a different one. Different from how we usually celebrate it. So we have decided to have it at ChildHaus, together with the children of the institution. CHILDHAUS- It is a temporary shelter for the cancer patients from the far-away provinces, undergoing treatments here in the metro.

So…. in order for us to give more, so this is what we did.

We did garage sale to sell things that we don’t use anymore (or should i say, we don’t use at all) to get more money to buy more stuff for giveaways. I gave a portion of the profits I made from my business as an organizer. My husband pledged to provide for the clown, but since we only have 2 hours for the event with the children of ChildHaus; we just bought 1 sack of rice and the excess money was used for additional toiletries. My sister gave portion of her savings. We also have friends who helped us for the preparation of the food and for the entertainment/ set-up.

I would like to take this chance, to thank all the people who wholeheartedly given their resources, time and effort to make all of this possible. And they are: Arnel, Teacher Alice, Ej, Ning & Bryan, Claire, Ria, Rodilyn and our mother, Judith. May the Lord Above bless all of us!

On Feb. 22, 2014 we did a small community outreach to this institution…

Indeed, it was a special feeling seeing a big smile on the faces of these little ones. That is why I am taking this chance to thank everyone who never hesitated to give what they can give. And giving me the opportunity to be your medium in helping others. May the Lord Above will bless you more.

Together, we did something good to make children learn the gift of giving.

God is good.

Today, joy has filled my heart. Another testimony that God has worked on HIS miracle thru me. As the president of Parents Committee 2013-2014 of KDCC, Mang Lito (maintenance crew) came to me yesterday asking for help to pay off his daughter’s bill from the hospital. I told him I would ask assistance from the parents. So today, I went to the school to personally talk to the parents and ask help in behalf of Mang Lito. So on the way to school, I was worried that I might not get enough contribution from the parents and worried that it might not reached at least 1,000 pesos.

And  while walking, I found a 1,000 peso bill on the walkway of our village. I picked it up and suddenly, it came to me that God has answered me already. I would not have to worry on how much I could collect from the parents, because now I already have 1,000 pesos.

But not only that, from the money collected from all the parents, it reached more than 2,000 pesos. So now, I have more than 3,000 pesos to give to Mang Lito.

It has really proven that God is working on HIS miracles, 24/7.

Hebrews 13:16

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

Am I thankful?!

After being busy for the holidays, it came to me that I have so much to be thankful for especially for my 2012. It was more special, my prayers have been answered. My kids are all happy and healthy.  It was the year that made me realized that I have a loving husband. Though we have so many differences but still we have made it through. We fought a lot over small things, but it made us stronger.

And most of all, I am so lucky to have him in my life because we share something that is very special for both of us and that is being- helpful and generous. The year 2012 was something that inspired us more to do good things. It made us realize that HE made us equally and it all depends to us how we will make it through. Some will be fortunate and some will not- but for those who are fortunate enough can be a blessings to others.

So, to all, let us all be thankful for everything that has happened to us, may it be positive or not. Because everything has a reason- just open your heart to it¬† and you will see…

Poem #3

I lost my best friend – third of June
All of a sudden, my life was out of tune
Part of me died the minute he said goodbye
It’s my heart, all its memories has gone by

He  is my everything, my soul mate
But he left me, I know it’s too late
He has found a new one, a new lover
Deep within me still hoping, it isn’t yet over

Living in an abyss of loneliness
Don’t know when I’m gonna get out of this
Trying my hardest to get myself together
Wishing this pain won’t last forever

Love Poem #2

You are the reason of a smile on this pretty face

My hands sweat and my heartbeats to race

You do crazy things to show your love

Proving, I am all you have

You make me do what I haven’t done before

Telling me, in life there’s a lot more

You are the light when my world is in darkness

Making it so colorful and full of happiness

You make my living seems so easy

Giving me freedom to be who I wanna be

Ever since, you are in my heart

In this life you are and always a big part

Losing you would make everything fall apart

Please just stay and have my heart.
