Blue Sky and the Inspiring Words

"Today, don't think of saying any unkind word, think of the people who can't speak.
Don't complain about the food you eat, some have nothing.
Don't complain about life, many die young.
When you're tired of your job, think of the jobless, the disabled and those who wish they had yours.
When sad thoughts seem to put you down, paint a smile on your face and thank God you're alive and still around.
Life is a gift.
Live it well."

tulips from our garden from spring 2010.

"You'll go forth a little stronger
With a fresh supply of grace,
If each day you meet the Saviour
In a secret quite place."

-Adams

In the trial you're passing through,

Is at work for good in you."

The Quote and the Image

"People were created to love.
Things were created to be used.
The reason why the world is in chaos
is because Things are being loved
and people are being used."

The Sunset and the Quote

"It was love that heard my pleadings
When I cried out in my sin;
It was love that gave me comfort;
It was love that took me in."

This was taken near our house located near the beach. I love this place.

The Tulips and the Nice Quote

So lift up your heart to the heavens;
There's a loving and kind Father there
Who offers release and comfort and peace
In the silent communion of prayer.
-Anon.

I wish it's tulip time now. Happy weekend everyone! Keep warm especially to all friends in winter wonderlands.

These were the tulips in our garden last spring 2010.

True Friendship

Friendship is such a wonderful gift
and it is always a nice feeling
when we have good friends around.
Friendship does not mean that we need to talk everyday
but once in awhile it is always good
to hear thoughtful words from a friend.
Friendship does not mean
that we have to see each other everyday
but it is always nice to reminisce
some memorable moments
that we spent with friends.
I am very thankful that I have good
and yes, great friends around!
I felt truly blessed.
Thank you so much to all friends
who are always true and loyal.

Below is a rose that I am giving to all my friends out there. This is a rose from our garden flourished with love and care just for you. This was taken last summer time 2010. The saying below also came out to my mind some minutes ago. I just can't stop sharing it here.

"Friendship is not a competition.
It is a matter of give and take relation".

-Ruby Benz

I love roses especially from our garden!

Till life on earth is done;

To make us like His Son."

Wherever we may go."

Within His hand are held,
And trusting His omnipotence
My fears are sweetly quelled."

But render service true."

Strength of a Man, Beauty of a Woman

It's afternoon now in our place. I am finally sitting in front of my computer. I was very busy this morning during some errands. I have to go the bank for some transaction, dropped a mail in the post office, started cleaning my car to get ready for the inspection of the renewal of its registration on Friday. I am still not done cleaning it because the rain start dropping. I decided to go inside the house and cook for lunch. I am happy because I had eaten my simple but delicious lunch.

As I opened my mailbox, I read about the forwarded email of my sister from Las Vegas. I decided to post it in this site to share this beautiful words about the true beauty of a man and woman..seems interesting but these are truly wonderful words...here it is!
I hope that we are trying to keep the real beauty in us! I always try! Have a wonderful day to all!

Strength of a Man

The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders.
It is seen in the width of his arms that encircle you.
The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
It is in the gentle words he whispers..
The strength of a man isn't how many buddies he has.
It is how good a buddy he is with his kids.
The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
It is in how respected he is at home.
The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits..
It is in how tender he touches.
The strength of a man isn't how many women he's Loved by.
It is in can he be true to one woman.
The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
It is in the burdens he can understand and overcome.

Beauty of a Woman

The beauty of a woman
Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure she carries,
Or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman
Must be seen from her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman
Is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman
Is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
The beauty of a woman
With passing years-only grows.

Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,
but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man.

May is Ending

Some more minutes and the month of May is ending! I hope you had a great month of May. So far for me, it was a great one. I guess I had some accomplishments for this month. I am also thankful for the blessings that I received this month. I hope that the coming months will be better and more abundant for me and my family. I also wish everyone a bountiful and joyful month of June! To welcome the month of the bride, here is a very nice quote for all of us! Have a great week ahead! take care everyone!

"Happiness is not something you have in your hands.
It's something you carry in your heart.
Give it away generously
and it will return to you a thousand fold."

My Quote For Today

There is a very beautiful quote I read today. I also want to share it to everyone especially to those who read this blog. Do you believe in this saying? I absolutely believed! In my own understanding it simply means this way; As long as you are doing the right thing, never care what other people say..Don't get affected because Someone up above is watching you. Cheers and happy Sunday!

Believe there is a great power
silently working all things for good,
behave yourself and never mind the rest.
Beatrix Potter
