Today is the end of March and completes the first quarter of year 2012.  I checked my faith goals which I wrote at the beginning of the year.  I don't normally do re-checking of goals. I'm only good on jotting them down at the start but lose sight of them because I never monitor the progress of it. I believe its time to review them quarterly to see which God has answered and those that I still need to pray for.

Need to remind myself of this year's theme over and over again: God is Faithful. I'll be with you; I won't give up on you; I won't leave you. Strength! Courage! [Joshua 1]

Believing God for greater things this year!

Luke 10-38-42 records the story of Martha and Mary who had different ways of welcoming Jesus at their place.  Mary chose to be with Jesus and listen to His' teachings while Martha was busy in the kitchen preparing something for Him. Jesus favored what Mary did although there's nothing wrong with what Martha chose to do.  The Message version states -The Master said, "Martha, dear Martha, you're fussing far too much and getting yourself worked up over nothing. One thing only is essential, and Mary has chosen it—it's the MAIN COURSE, and won't be taken from her." 

In my walk with God, I realized that I am more of a Martha because I always find myself doing things for the Lord and even for other people.  Its tiring and exhausting sometimes.What I'm doing is the "DESSERT" and not paying much attention to the "MAIN COURSE" which is spending quality time with God in Word and in prayer. I put it this way, a meal of an ordinary person requires the main course and its OK not to have dessert BUT it will be better if you have the main course and the dessert. That's awesome! For me if I take more dessert, its either I won't have appetite for the main course or will take less of it. On the other hand, if I did take the full main course, I will take less dessert or sometimes wont take it at all. The same applies to my spiritual growth.

I was hesitant to blog about this subject because honestly I am the impatient kind of person.  I don't want to wait (who wants to wait anyway?) and I want to get things in a blink of an eye.  I realized that waiting is something that we all need to go through, its like a requirement that we need to take and unless we learn how to really wait on God's perfect timing, we would never receive the promises of God in our life. Let me put this in an equation, 

God's perfect time = God's good, pleasing and perfect will

Oftentimes, I would find myself wanting only God's best but not wanting to wait on Him.  I have made decisions in the past that are a result of my impatience. I am thankful for the grace of God that restores me after all those hasty decisions. But I don't want to be in an  "impatience-restoration" cycle walk with God.  Sadly, I have learned the lesson the hard way.

I've been waiting for a lot of things from God and waiting for Him to act is just killing me! There are also discouragements and negative thoughts along the way telling me to give up.  But then again, I would always remind myself that I am waiting on a God who has proven Himself faithful even to the point of grave. He will certainly come through with His promise.  I will keep on pressing on! I have resolved to wait upon the Lord and not go ahead of Him.

**This post is in response to the "Be Yourself" project initiated by Hannah of ZebrasWithColor.**

I used to be a man pleaser. I changed my personality just to fit in and be accepted by other people. Deep inside I know that I'm this kind of person but I tried to hide and run away from  who I really am. As I grow older, I realized that its a waste of time trying to please everyone because the fact is I cannot please all the people all the time. I'm losing my very unique self and won't enjoy life to the fullest. I will not grow as a person if I'm always concerned  and afraid of what other people would say about me.

I need to be secure of who I really am. My security and identity must and should always be on God. I am still a work in progress in this area and knowing myself continuously. I am thankful that in the process, I am discovering new things about myself, the good and bad that makes who I really am.

I dont know when this started or where I got this but I have allergy on dust. Sounds funny and petty as one of  my friends said but its really giving me a terrible feeling when something triggers the allergy. I will be sneezing all the time like a man, my eyes and nose will be watery and itchy. I will blow my nose every now and then. This heavy  feeling would make me feel weak and worst, I cannot do anything at all. Aside from dust, very strong perfumes, bad odors and pets can trigger the allergy. The wisest thing for me to do is to always carry these tablets everywhere I go because I dont know when and where it will hit me. Thank God for antihistamine tablets!

I've been spending more hours on my blogsite. I guess I'm really hooked on Blogger. Choosing a template, background, blog name, fonts and colors, labels, widgets etc. really take time. Funny, I thought that I have chosen a good one then the next day you find another that is better. So please bear with my site if it keeps on changing from time to time. I'm doing a lot of reading for tips and better suggestions because I'm totally new on Blogger. I'm also checking other people's site for tips and I was like how the heck did they do that!

I wanted a masterpiece, of course. It does not happen overnight.  I wanted my site to be an excellent one so I will be more inspired and motivated to check on it everyday. Besides, this is where I will be posting everything about myself, my life and story, so it should really be a great site.

To celebrate my nephew's graduation who topped the class, we had a small pizza celebration in the house. Enjoyed the night while watching our favorite TV shows. Yey!

 My nephew does not want more toppings so we bought ham and cheese flavor!

 Yummy merienda and I got this for FREE! Yey! Wasn't able to took a photo of the actual burger so I just got it from Google.

Simut sarap kasama. Its cheesier!

 I had my guitar strings replaced today. While the man was putting the new strings , we had a small conversation about ourselves.  Found out that he had 2 kids, got married at age 47 to a woman who at that time was only 27!  And I was like foah! It didn't surprise me seeing the man's reaction when I told him that I had never been  into a relationship. I told him that I am fickle minded. I would like a guy for a week or two, sometimes months but it disappears too fast. And so I decided not to enter into a relationship to avoid both parties being hurt. (Ok, this part I didnt told him.) There are still issues in my heart that God is working out, I want to be complete first with God, know more of myself  and love myself more. There was an instance in the past that I forgot myself because I was sooo in love with the idea of being in love. (cheesy-ness). My heart needs to be steady first in Him so I can love wholeheartedly and unwaveringly. I guess this boils down to loving God with all of my heart, my soul, mind and body. Seeking Him first and strengthening my relationship with Him so I can be 100% sure, without any change of mind that he's the one whom God has prepared for me.

Eat Bulaga is the longest running noontime show in the Philippines. I love watching this show because it caters to the common people o masa. My favorite segment is Pinoy Henyo where its a game played by two players whose main objective is to guess the word on the first players forehead only by asking questions. The other player only answers "Yes", "No", "Maybe".  They were only given 2 minutes to guess the word and whoever gets it the fastest wins. This game would really make you think and be mindful in asking questions.What I also like about this game is seeing people's facial expressions from the audience's side. hahahaha. Kakatawa lang!
I also like Juan for All, All for Juan hosted by Jose, Wally and Paolo. Galing nila! They will visit barangays live and will choose one person whom they will visit. Hearing other people's real stories is so inspiring and funny as the hosts make jokes out of it. Panalo talaga! I just wish that Eat Bulaga will also be aired when I'm out of the Philippines.

Im starting to like this blog website. What I like about Blogger is that I can share and link it to my Facebook, Twitter and G+ account. My site is still under construction, I am still looking for great designs of templates but I think I'll be hanging out more often on this site.

We used to visit Mom's hometown when we were still young and amazed to see the old house standing still! Grabe! Ang tibay! Sarap ng sariwang hangin and I like the simple and peaceful living. Kakatuwa rin ung mga Filipino values like pagmamano, pagtawag ng T'yo/T'ya, at ung probinsyana accent namin, panalo! hahaha. I find the place so relaxing and stress relieving. Yeah! I will visit this place once in a while and make the most out of it.

I came across an article about Pi day which is celebrated today for geeks of Math and Science. I didnt know about it coz I'm not a geek.haha. It was interesting that the article even suggest ways on how to celebrate this day like eat pies, meet with geek friends etc. hahaha..Well, i dont have pies with me today, guess I have to celebrate it next year.

Super cute and kulit na mga pamangkin. Kakagigil!! India looks more of his Tatay and Indra her Nanay. Kakatuwa talaga! I wish I'll have the same cute kids, someday...husband must really be a cute one also. (just a thought)

Oftentimes, I find my thoughts wandering so I decided to put those thoughts into writing, pour out what's inside my heart.  I even got an idea to have a small traveling notebook (moleskine) so I can compile my thoughts there, including the crazy ones..hahaha.
