MM: I Still Believe

I was trying to find the video in youtube for this song but it is not available..sorry again guys! I found another I Still Believe song but it was a different one by Hayden Panettiere..I love this song from Mariah Carey..I know I will always believed..visit LJL to join Music Monday..take care everyone and here is the lyrics of this song..Have a Happy Monday to All!

I STILL BELIEVE
by: Mariah Carey

No, oh No.... Yeah, Yeah ... oh..
You look in my eyes and I get emotional inside
I know it’s crazy, but you still can touch my heart
And after all this time you think that I wouldn’t feel the same
But time melts into nothing, and nothing's changed

I still believe
Someday you and me
Will find ourselves
In love again

I had a dream
Someday you and me
Will find ourselves
In love again

Each day of my life, I’m filled with all the joy I could find
You know that I,I'm not the desperate type
If there’s one spark of hope left in my grasp, I'm holding it with both
hands
It’s worth the risk of burning, to have a second chance

No, no, no, no, no, no, I need you, baby
I still believe that we can be together, no…
If we believe that true love never has to end
Then we must know that we will love again, Mmm..

I still believe
Someday you and me
Will find ourselves
In love again (Oh, baby, yeah)

I had a dream
You and me
Will find ourselves
In love again

I still believe (Ooh, baby, I do)
Someday you and me (Just give me one more try)
In love again

I had a dream (I miss your love)
Someday you and me
Will find ourselves
In love again

I still believe
Someday you and me(will find ourselves in love...)

LEAD ME LORD
by: Gary Valenciano

Lead me Lord, lead me by the hand
And make me face the rising sun
Comfort me through all the pain

That life may bring
There's no other hope
That I can lean upon
Lead me Lord
Lead me all my life
Walk by me, walk by me across
The lonely road that I may face
Take my arms and let your hadn
Show me the way
Show the way to live inside your heart
All my days, all my life

Refrain:
You are my light
You're the lamb upon my feet
All the time my Lord
I need You there
You are my light
I (just) cannot live alone
Let me stay
By Your guiding love
All through my life
Lead me Lord

Lead me Lord
Even though at times
I'd rather go alone my way
Help me take the right direction
Take Your road
Lead me Lord
And never leave my side
All my days
All my life

You are my light
You're the lamb upon my feet
All the time my Lord
I need You there
You are my light
I (just) cannot live alone
Let me stay
By Your guiding love
All through my life
All through my days
Lead me, O Lord
Lead me Lord

Birthdays Greeting to My Dear Mama

I want to extend my birthday greetings
and wishes to my one and only dearest Mother!
I wish you all the best things in life
and most of all good health always!
Have a blessed and happy birthday!!
I Love You Mama!
God bless you always!

If I could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me.
If I could give you sapphires
for each truth you’ve helped me see.
If I could give you rubies
for the heartache that you’ve known
If I could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you’ve shown.
Then you’ll have a treasure, mother,
that would mount up to the skies
That would almost match
the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.
But I have no pearls, no diamonds,
As I’m sure you’re well aware
So I’ll give you gifts more precious
My devotion, love and care.

With all my love
on your birthday

Visiting the Doctors Again!

How's everyone out there? I hope you are all doing good! Last Thursday, my husband had a doctor's appointment due to his bad knee. The doctor said, it might be coming from the bike accident last August 2007. One doctor said that the knee must be operated immediately. The other doctor said that it is better to wait for some time. To ease the pain from his knee, he was given two injections already. That is the reason why we went back again yesterday for the second injection. All these pains that my husband suffered now started after that bike accident in 2007 happened. His ankle was broken and was also operated. We are just thankful that we have that so-called accident insurance and lawyer's insurance which we are paying every year. We were looking before for some motorcycle accident attorneys and we are glad that we found a good one. He is the one handling the case of my husband's bike accident because there was a second party who was the caused of his accident. He will have another doctor's appointment next week again for a, Orthopedic Specialist to have a second opinion. I hope that this will be settled soon! Enjoy the lovely day! It is very beautiful today in our place! take care guys!

MM- Hero by Mariah Carey

soI am joining again! I got here the song of one of my favorite singer Mariah Carey. Hi Lady Java, I tried to copy your Linky code but it seems not appearing...The ones appearing as I copied it are found at the bottom of this post. I would appreciate any info why the links don't appear..Thanks in advance!

can't even find the video in youtube about this song..sorry guys!

Hero
sang by: Mariah Carey
There's a hero If you look inside your heart You don't have to be afraid Of what you are There's an answer If you reach into your soul And the sorrow that you know Will melt away

And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you

It's a long road When you face the world alone No one reaches out a hand For you to hold You can find love If you search within yourself And the emptiness you felt Will disappear

And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you

Lord knows Dreams are hard to follow But don't let anyone Tear them away Hold on There will be tomorrow In time You'll find the way

And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you.

Easter Greetings To One and All!

Have a blessed and memorable Easter To All!

The stars shall fade away, the sun himself
Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years;
But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth,
Unhurt amid the war of elements,
The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.

Celebration of the Holy Thursday

Do you know what day today is? For Christians especially for Catholics today is the celebration of the Holy Thursday or the so-called Maundy Thursday. I could still remember our practices back home that during this day, we usually go to the Church to attend a Mass celebration for today. Sad to say, I haven't done it in Germany now. I'm so sorry for that...anyway to give you some info about Holy Thursday, I consulted the experts on the web. Have a blessed Lenten Season to all!

What is Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday?

Maundy Thursday (also known as Holy Thursday or Great and Holy Thursday), is the Christian feast or holy day falling on the Thursday before Easter that commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. It is the fifth day of Holy Week, and is preceded by Holy Wednesday and followed by Good Friday. In 2009, Maundy Thursday will occur on April 9 for Western Christian traditions including Roman Catholicism and on April 16th for Eastern Christian traditions including most Orthodox Churches.

On this day four events are commemorated: the washing of the Disciples' Feet by Jesus Christ, the institution of the Mystery of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper, the agony of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the betrayal of Christ by Judas Iscariot. read more here

Holy Week from Monday To Wednesday!

I guess most Christians especially the Catholics are aware of what we celebrate this week. To give you some info about, continue reading below. Have a blessed Holy week to all!

Monday to Wednesday

The days between Palm Sunday and Maundy Thursday are known as Holy Monday (or Fig Monday), Holy Tuesday and Holy Wednesday (sometimes called Spy Wednesday). The Gospels of these days recount events not all of which occurred on the corresponding days between Jesus' entry into Jerusalem and his Last Supper. For instance, the Monday Gospel tells of the Anointing of Bethany (John 12:1-9), which occurred before the Palm Sunday event described in John 12:12-19.

The Chrism Mass, whose texts the Roman Missal now gives under Holy Thursday, may be brought forward to one of these days, to facilitate participation by as many as possible of the clergy of the diocese together with the bishop. This Mass was not included in editions of the Roman Missal before the time of Pope Pius XII. In this Mass the bishop blesses separate oils for the sick (used in Anointing of the Sick) for catechumens (used in Baptism) and chrism (used in Baptism, but especially in Confirmation and Holy Orders, as well as in rites such as the blessing of an altar and a church). please read more here

Music Monday

I am back here after some busy days. This is my first time to join LJL's Music Monday. I don't have a great voice for singing but I can sing. I hope to share the songs that I love to listen...cool! Since the title of this blog is Simply The Best, I decided to have this as my first song for Music Monday..here is the lyric of this song

SIMPLY THE BEST
by Tina Turner

I call you,when I need you my hearts on fire
You come to me, come to me, wild and wild

You come to me, give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
Speak the language of love like you know what it means
And it cant be wrong, take my heart and make it strong, baby

Chorus:
Youre simply the best, better than all the rest, better than anyone, anyone
Ive ever met!
Im stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

In your heart I see the start of every night and every day
In your eyes, I get lost, I gte washed away
Just as long as Im here in your arms I could be in no better place...

Chorus:
Youre simply the best, better than all the rest, better than anyone, anyone
Ive ever met!
Im stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

Its the time you leave me I start losing control, you're walking away with my
Heart and my soul, I can feel you even when I'm alone, oh baby don't let go!


And your the best, better than all the rest, better than anyone, anyone ive
Ever met!
Im stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead, ooh you're the best!

Such a great day!

Spring time is finally here! Today was a very nice sunny weather. It was a perfect time to go out again and visit some friends! One friend I visited prepared some food which I love. Those Filipino food are lumpia spring roll and adobo. I ate a lot again. Winter is over and I guess, it is a time for me to go out again and do some exercise to lose some fat or weight? I know that I gained some kilos again especially that I don't have the appetite to go walking in the cold winter time. I guess one solution to eradicate excess weight is to take a diet pill. Agree with me guys? I hope so but we have to find the right one which is really effective and don't have side effects. have a great evening to all! It is time for me to slowly sign-off!
