A Happy and Blessed New Year 2016

Some parts of the world already celebrated their New Year and we will also do the same in over an hour now.


 "A new year is like a blank book, the pen is in your hands,
It is your chance to write a beautiful story for yourself,
Happy New Year 2016."

Facing another year in our lives, I wish everyone a blessed and happy New Year 2016 full of hope, love, inspiration and most especially peace in all corners of this planet to prevail!

To my family and friends near and far,  I wish you all good health always, happiness, peace of mind, contentment, more blessings to come and may all your wishes and dreams slowly coming true!

God bless us all! God bless planet Earth!

New Year 2014 Inspiration!

Some more hours and 2014 is about to come. This means that we have to slowly say goodbye to 2013. I would say 2013 is a wonderful year for me and I hope for you too. Let's face  2014 with hope, love, peace to all mankind and harmony!


I also would to share this very inspiring words I received from my inbox. Thanks to Kyregma for sharing it.

"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 hour of the year to worship and prophecy?

At the stroke of midnight, my household would worship and raise our voices to honor God in an attempt to drown the “noise” of the world. Instead of driving away spirits, we invite the Holy Spirit to join us in thanking God. Then we open our Bibles and receive a verse as a guide for the New Year, even as we consult Scripture again and again throughout the year.

This additional tradition has brought me closer to God’s Word and has taught me to be guided by it. It makes my every day a New Year’s Day — a celebration of the Word! Rolly EspaƱa."

Have A Wonderful New Year 2012!

2011 has been a blessed and amazing year for me.
Everything was almost perfect...
my life, my family and all the people I met along the way...
the priceless and unforgettable experiences I've been through..
and all the wonderful things that happened this year.
Before 2012 comes
I would like to thank my family, friends, relatives
and anyone I met along the way..
and most of all, I would like to thank the Lord for everything
that He had given me this year.
Most especially thank you Lord for the gift of life,
the gift of nature, my faculties and abilities, all the opportunities...
There are just a lot of things to be thankful of.

NEW YEAR 2012!!
Good health always, love, peace and happiness
are all my wishes to all!

"It Depends on Us... Another year lies before us like an unwritten page, an unspent coin, an unwalked road. How the pages will read, what treasures will be gained in exchange for time, or what we find alone the way, will largely depend on us."

Cool News from Italy

This is quite cool. How about women from different countries? would you do the same? I don't have problem with this one because my husband don't burn money with fireworks. Think about it now!! Do you think it is the best solution? happy New year in advance!!

Women's ultimatum: Sex or fireworks

NAPLES, Italy (UPI) -- A group of more than 40 women in Naples, Italy, said they will withhold sex if their husbands or boyfriends set off fireworks during the holiday season.

Dr. Vincenzo Sorrentino said the idea for the committee of women pledging to withhold sex came after years of injuries and deaths resulting from Christmastime fireworks, ANSA reported Friday.

"We've tried everything to stop the mayhem caused by fireworks but we've never reached the results we hoped for," Sorrentino said. "We decided to get women involved because they are more convincing and they always achieve their goals."

Carolina Staiano, 42, the head of the women's committee, said her own father was seriously injured years ago by exploding fireworks.

"So far we've had more than 30 women join up and we're hoping for more," she said Friday. "We're fed up with these stupid annual massacres. This time they're just going to have to choose: sex or fireworks."

A New Beginning

Eight is the number of new beginnings. Each eight days a new week begins. No matter what mess-ups are on your credit record,in the eighth year it is wiped clean. For any unprosecuted crime except murder, in the eighthyear it passes the seven year statue of limitations and youcannot be tried for it. Each four times seven, (28 days) new life is prepared for in awoman's body. This year is a new beginning for YOU, for all of us. adapted from mountainwings

New Year's Eve in Germany is highlighted by fantastic pyrotechnic displays, lots of Sect (similar to Champagne but much cheaper) and celebrations in the streets. Celebrating a German New Year's Eve can range from watching the fireworks and the movie "Dinner for One"or going to a gala ball. Silvester, as New Year's Eve in Germany is called, is not a night to sleep as fireworks are the order of the day and people shoot off their own fireworks as well as joining to watch the public displays.

The German New Years Customs are not all that different then elsewhere in the Western world, but there are a few variances that make a German New Year's Eve delightful regardless of where in Germany you are.

Hope everyone had a great time last night celebrating New year!!!

Great New Year!!!

We just had a great time last night celebrating New Year. Spending it with friends was also very great. My friend prepared a lot of food. We watched the fireworks last night too even it was cold outside. My friend's neighbor displayed a lot of fireworks which entertained us. We also made videoke singing while drinking red wine. I will try to post the pictures next time once I go back home..

Today we also went a little bit walking around the the village where my friend live. It was very peaceful, so I guess the people are still sleeping being tired from last night's celebration. I won't stay too long here. Wishing you again a great New Year. Hope you got some fun too!!!

New Year in Kaiserslautern

I mentioned in my previous blog that I will be away to visit friends in Ktown. Yesterday we arrived here in Ktown safely and soundly. I thanked the Lord for bringing us safe to our friends' house. We had fun yesterday seeing again our friends here in Kaiserslautern.

This is my first time spending New Year away from my husband. But even though I spend it away from him, of course he is still in my thoughts. I am just thankful that my husband is not strict allowing me to go anywhere I want. In short, he is a very understanding and kind person whom I am always proud of.

Again, I want to thank all my friends for the priceless friendship you gave me. Your friendship is always treasured. I also want to thank my husband who is always being there for me in good and bad times. Lastly, I want to thank the Lord Almighty for the endless blessings He gave me and my family for the past years.

Again and Again, I wish everyone a Wonderful New year always full of love, more blessings, peace, happiness and good health always for the year 2008.

New Year Greetings

The festive season is upon us, and whether you're enjoying your holiday in the snow or sand, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all you friendship and wish you and your family a holiday that will be filled to the brim with special memories and excitement for 2008.
