This is our family picture during the wedding of Love, my youngest daughter last September 7, 2002 which was held at Malaysia (Klang). Our family traveled all the way from the Philippines for this occasion with some of our friends. Take note that I have only 3 grandkids at this time, but now they are 9 already.... how time flies really.
ISAIAH 6:8 "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
What is the message, the mandate that God has sent you to deliver? Before Jesus walked up the slopes of the Mount of Olives and ascended to heaven, He gave His followers a charge: "Go into all the world and proclaim the Good News to every person!" Let your neighborhood, your office, your home, your city know the Good News -- that God cares for us, that He sent His son to take us to heaven, that there is forgiveness for our sins and failures, and there is help for our despair and hopelessness. Do not wait until you hear the voice of an angel before you think about the message God wants you to deliver. You are His spokesperson. He is still asking, "Who will go for us?"

This picture was taken when we visited one of my favorite niece whose family is now residing at Butuan City.She works at one of the government offices there and her husband works also in one of the government bank at the same place. She is one of the children of my eldest sister. This is our first time to come and visit her family but unfortunately her husband was on travel. We ate our dinner in their house, though we had stayed for a few hours only but we enjoyed each other fellowship. She is at the third from the left sited besides me.
This picture was taken sometime in 1970"s perhaps a birthday party or a wedding anniversary of my parents in law. I am the one in the third from the right sitting at the table with my late husband at my back. Yes, it was a nostalgic moments for me when this photo was posted by my niece (in law) at my Facebook account. You see,we were always gathered together in my parents in law's place when there was a celebration with joy and fun. They remind me of their goodness and their values in life which are cherished in my memory and that we passed it on to our children also.
PHILIPPIANS: 4:19 "My God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus"
Yes! God promised to provide for our needs.. When we have needs-whether they be physical, emotional, or financial, and they are valid-- we can pray, "Lord, I'm your child, and You gave me a great promise in Your Word, I am trusting you to provide for me, and I'll thank You in advance. Now, Lord , here"s a great opportunity for You to show me how strong You are." Then relax God's timing is different from us, but of this we are certain: God is seldom early but He is never late. He is precisely on time. Thank God for His promises.
Last few days I was with the family of Mayette and with Renzee my eldest grandson to Amontay Beach Resorts.Well, it was another experience for my grandkids,enjoying swimming early in the morning and late in the afternoon. You see, Amontay Beach Resorts is a very nice place to stay especially if you are into water sports because they have plenty of amenities for these...Zboy enjoyed the pool ball...Renzee was not able to use the pool ball as his weight can not be handled so he just enjoyed swimming with Zane girl. Amontay Beach Resort not only have water sports amenities but also land sports amenities like ATV motor bike.
Yes, we only wished that this Beach Resort is located in Cagayan de Oro so we can come often with my other children during holidays, but this is located at Nasipit, Agusan del Norte which can take many hours drive from our place. I believe families from Butuan City comes to this place always as it is only a 30 minutes drive to arrive for them to this resort.
Psalm 68:19 "Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burden."
But does God actually bear our burdens? And if so, what does that mean? It means that He cares about what happening to us. The book of Hebrews tells us that nothing is hidden from Him and everything is seen by Him. Yes, He knows our faults. But He also knows the desires of our heart, our struggles to do right and the sensitivity that brings us to our knees when we fall. God also works through friends to bear our burdens.
