A Wonderful Start of the Harvest Month

Goodbye lovely July and hello beautiful August! Finally my most favorite month of harvest is here. I  am always thankful to July and the other past month of 2015. There were just a lot of wonderful things that did happened this year. What else can I say but to express my gratefulness for everything.

Thanks God for the wonderful first two days of my fave month of August. I was able to spent time with lovely people, friends and talked to my family back home. Life is too short to complain and think of problems. Be grateful everyday especially for the blessings of waking up every morning. Others don't have the chance to experience the world anymore.

Thanks God especially for the greatest gift you had given us, the gift of life to experience the beauty of this planet. To each and everyone especially to my family, relatives and friends  near and far, I wish you all a great and blessed month of August! Good health, love and happiness to one and all! God bless and live life to the fulles…

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1:1

The celebration of New Year’s Eve is filled with tradition. People wear polkadots, serve 12 kinds of round fruits on their tables and light firecrackers to usher in prosperity and drive evil spirits away. The traditions have a more commendable side to it— it makes the evening colorful, it brings families together in emotional reunions and many other good things.

May I suggest an additional good thing to add to our traditions? May I propose that we dedicate the first h…

Worry vs Work

"The reason why worry kills
more people than work
is that more people worry than work."

~Robert Frost (1874-1963)~

Sad and Shocking Story

I just feel so sad today after reading in the newspaper of a young boy who committed suicide. Imagine at the age of thirteen, he committed suicide. He was found inside his closet and believed to hang himself. I knew it since last Friday because my husband told me about it. I had seen this boy whom I will call for short Andre two years ago in the German American Volksfest here in Hohenfels. . And I always see his picture everytime I visit my dentist. Yes this boy was the son of my dentist. He got a very kind and wonderful father and I believed a wonderful family too. I really can't imagine how he did that or what are the reasons why he ended his life. But whatever reasons why he did that, I just pray for the repose of his soul and may he rest in peace and join our Creator now.

He is young, very good looking boy, and helpful according to his classmates and schoolmate. Here is a short message from his friends and classmates according to a German Newspaper in our place.

Job Opportunity

I just received this afternoon a call saying if I want to work in an International Company in Munich.  Of course, why not?  The recruiter said that they saw my resume in Monster.com. She even mentioned if I want to work in Munich. I  told her that it doesn't matter where in Germany, even in Europe or US as long I have a job. But still, I will still consider the salary. If it is  more than enough to support my living and everything  including the apartment and cost of living, I will surely grab the job.

I wish I  have a lot of  Computer Skills  so that I can work in an IT company. I am a banker and accountant by profession. I also applied  some knowledge of computer at the bank I work before.  I am still not losing hope that one day I can learn  more about  computers and its field of study. I believed I am not too old to learn. Besides,  learning knows no age limit at all!

I hope and pray that I can make it  with this job this time. If not, I will be forced  to  job in other c…

It's all about Blogging!!

Mabuhay!!
Hallo Leute (a German word which mean Hello people)!!! How it is going!! Time is really running so fast!! today is already the end of the month..Tomorrow is another month!! wow, I can't believed that this blog is already three months old. I enrolled this last November 29, 2007. I wrote my first blog last Nov. 30, '07.

I can still say, Life is a process of learning so is blogging. I admit I still need to learn about the crazy blogging world..yah, it's crazy but it's a lot of fun. Besides that I also met here a lot of wonderful and nice people.

Blogging is my life in cyberspace where I can write anything, about my ideas, thoughts, opinions, insights, outlook and even my own personal experiences. Besides that I really don't have a lot of friends here in Germany, only a few to mention.. so computer and internet and this so called blogging is now a part of my world and daily life. It is one of my bestfriend.

I just wanted to express my thanks and gratitu…

The Water

This story shed my tears...I seldom cry but this one just shed my tears..
it is quite a long story, but really very touching...Please read it too..
I wish everyone a nice weekend!!!!God bless us all!!


It was one of the hottest days of the dry season. We had
not seen rain in almost a month. The crops were dying.
Cows had stopped giving milk. The creeks and streams were
long gone back into the earth. It was a dry season that
would bankrupt several farmers before it was through.

Every day, my husband and his brothers would go about the
arduous process of trying to get water to the fields. Lately
this process had involved taking a truck to the local water
rendering plant and filling it up with water. But severe
rationing had cut everyone off. If we didn't see some rain
soon...we would lose everything.

It was on this day that I learned the true lesson of sharing
and witnessed the only miracle I have seen with my own eyes.
I was in the kitchen making lunch for my husband and his
brothers when …

THE ESCAPE

This post is the continuation of the post I had written last Saturday Feb. 09, entitled
Warning to All Pinays Who Want to Marry Foreigners.
If you read this post you might know then what I am talking to now. ....sorry just don't find time to write it immediately...So last Friday, we finally escaped or let say I helped Ana escape from her misery (is that really misery..just can't find the exact word now, but i guess so).....I already bought our train ticket to go to a certain place here in Bavaria, the state where I also presently live..

She don't have anything with here that day except for a pack bag full of books which she use in the German language course. Her husband stayed at home all the time and if he will see her with a big bag, he might not able to escape. Be…

My Tuesday..

Hello everyone!!! How was your day???

Today is just a normal day for me. After eating my lunch at about 2pm,(yup that was too late already) I decided to go walking even I really don't feel like doing so. I just wanted to breath some fresh air outside the cold weather.

I went a up the hill until I remembered that I have to extend my condolence to my neighbor whose husband was dead already. Her husband was stubbed to death in Czech Republic. That was certainly a very sad and tragic story. I didn't stay too long in her house. After talking a bit and saying condolence to her ,I continued my walking. Life is really short. We don't know when is the time for us. What we can probably do is to be always prepared when that time comes.

It is winter time in Germany. I'm happy during this winter season because it's not snowing in our place. Compared to the first years that I have been here, it was really snowing very hard. The other parts of Germany have been s…

Life is So Short

I woke up yesterday morning having something in my mind. I got some words that I wanted to write. It just suddenly came out of my mind. This words turned into writing a poem yesterday morning. I love composing poems, even writing my own sayings or quotations that serve as a lesson especially if something happens in my life that worthy of making as a reminder or instruction that a certain bad experience won't happen again.

I have not written it here in my blog yesterday because I was still thinking of its title. Finally today, I got a title for it...here it is....

LIFE IS SO SHORT...

Life is so beautiful.
Life is so wonderful.
Don't give up on it.
It's the greatest gift of all.

Too many trials and problems.
Too many predicaments.
But in the course of time.
It shall be put to end.

Life maybe short or long.
For everyone who comes along.
In this complicated world.
Where all people belong.

Whatever you think and do.
Enjoy life to the fullest.
Living its peak to the highest.
So in the en…

Words -- Just Words

Several years ago, while on a long flight, I was seated next to a flight attendant who had broken her leg in an accident. Eventually, we started talking, and I found her language to be shocking. It seemed so inappropriate; she was a vivacious, personable young woman. Frankly, filthy language offends me, so I commented on her choice of words. She, in turn, expressed amazement that I was offended and said they were "just words." I responded, "You're right. And I'm sure this is the way you talk in front of your parents." She responded, "Absolutely not!" So I commented, "Well, why not? They're 'just words.'"

The truth is that our language does betray us. Our words are a direct reflection of our thoughts, and anyone who is incapable of expressing himself without the use of profanity is becoming handicapped to an incredible degree.

It has been my observation that improper language bars individuals from certain jobs, organizations and…

All of Us Are in Debt

I want to thank all the emails I received everyday especially those that are very informative and useful in my daily living. Below is one example of it. Hope you guys will also get a lesson from it. Enjoy reading to this beautiful essay.

All of Us Are in Debt

Albert Einstein said, "A hundred times every day, I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received." As you think about what Einstein said, you will come to realize the completely unselfish wisdom of those words. First, we're indebted to our parents because they were responsible for bringing us into the world. Next, we are indebted to the doctors, nurses, aides, orderlies and other hospital personnel for the part they played in making our arrivals safe and healthy ones.

We're indebted to the educational structure where we learned reading, writing and arithmetic, which are critical t…

Discipline to Children Starts at Home

Good Morning Everyone!!! I just read this in my email from Mountain Wings. I wanted to share it with you. Perhaps you can help by praying especially to those children who are really stubborn and mind you at the very early stage of life, at the age of three. Sounds really not good.

Children's discipline always starts at home. Parents always have the responsibility to discipline their children. In my own opinion, I believed that children must be discipline at the early stage of life specifically when they start talking. Whether the parents are professional or not, I believed that proper manners, values and discipline must be thought to them.

I am still not a Mother and if ever it is God's will for me to have children I will try my best to give them proper discipline. I know it is not easy to discipline children. I came from a very big family of twelve siblings. I am just very thankful that even my parents don't have time to each one of us, we are still given some discipline …

Dust If You Must

How many countless hours have I spent cleaning? I used to spend at least 8 to 12 hours every weekend making sure things were just perfect, "in case someone came over." Then one day I realized that no one came over; they were all out living life, having fun!

Now, when people visit, I find no need to explain the"condition" of my home; they are more interested in hearing about the things I've been doing while I was away living life and enjoying it!

If you haven't figured this out yet, please heed this advice:Life is short - enjoy it while you can!And people don't care if your house is spotless just as long as they're welcome.

Dust if you must but wouldn't it be better,To paint a picture or write a letter,Bake a cake or plant a seed, Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must but there's not much time,With rivers to swim and mountains to climb,Music to hear and books to read,Friends to cherish and life to lead.

Dust if you must but…

Unfair

"Life is so unfair!"I hear people making this statement quite often. In justice,misfortune, or good fortune can be perceived as occurring through random chance - some just have it easy and some have it rough. It can appear to the purely logical mind that there is no rhyme or reason why this is so. The problem with the logical mind is that it is not actually so logical or smart. We still can't create the simplest grasshopper or even a blade of grass. Even with all of our scientific advances, the divorce rate among the Ph.D. is no lower than that among the illiterate.We know more about a terrorist in a cave than we do our next-door neighbor. Our understanding and our abilities are simply very limited. Our understanding in the grand scheme of things is like George.No, not that George, my two-year-old son George.When you start counseling, you get to see the inner world and inner reasons. You soon see that whether it is generational,environmental, or the choices we make, things …
