New Year Reflections

Another year had passed and I am sure that each one of us has had our fill of joys and hurts; unexpected blessing and trials. What have you learned all through 2010? Did you become a better person? Were you able to learn something out of your experiences? Is your heart hardened and now believes that God has let you down?

Everything happens for a reason. God is perfect and His plan for us is perfect too. All we need to do is trust God. It is sometimes hard to completely surrender to God's will as we tend to use our own intelligence which is just human nature.

This new year, let us all be more aware that God has a perfect plan for us. Let us all strive to be a better person. If someone had hurt us or has done us wrong, now is the time to forgive. Getting "even" is not an option. Putting one over someone is not an option too. I have repeatedly told my children to honest in everything they do for I believe that deceit or stealing, however small they are, are still abominable in God's eyes. My girls and I tend to be overly loud when "fighting" for what we believe in. We believe that fair is fair. I have taught my children to voice out their opinion but often, this characteristic is often misunderstood as being rude and disrespectful.

Integrity and honesty are important aspect of our lives. I have repeatedly drummed into my kids that they should respect the elderly but not to the point where their personal values and opinion are compromised. I have repeatedly told my children that education is important and that their quest to succeed should not be at the expense of other people.

I have received numerous reports that there are certain persons who are intent on ruining our reputation by spreading lies about us. There are some persons who feel that we have trodden on them all because the truth has been shielded and twisted. To these persons, let it be known that the truth will prevail in the end. However, I and my children have already gathered together in prayer to forgive those who have offended and hurt us. May the persons who we have offended and hurt find it in their hearts to forgive us too.

No one is perfect. It is only Jesus Christ, as man, who was/is perfect. In essence, this means that we all make mistakes and in the process, sin. But! God is so gracious that when we seek repentance, He forgives.

May the Lord's blessings be upon you. Jehovah Jireh! May the Lord be your great provider. Jehovah Rophi! May the Lord heal you physically, emotionally and spiritually. Jehovah Rohi! May the Lord truly be your Shepherd.

Happy New Year!

The Nativity

The Reason for the Season is the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It pains me to see that the true meaning of Christmas is set aside to make way for the commercialism of the occasion. True, the birth of Christ did not happen on December 25 but the essence and significance of His glorious birth is celebrated on the said day.

What is Christmas? Do you want to learn and know what transpired on the fateful day ib Judea? Here is the story of the Nativity.

Christian Women Week

This is a repost from an e-mail I received.

When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living.
I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!

Today is Beautiful Christian Woman's Day.
Pretty is as Pretty does but, Beautiful is just plain Beautiful..

I'm supposed to send this to Beautiful Women, and you are one of them!!!

If you share this with other women, you will boost another woman's self esteem,
And she will know you care about her!

Great is Thy Faithfulness

God is good.

It does not matter if we sin on a daily basis. It does not matter if we forget to pray and give thanks for the blessings we receive on a daily basis. It does not matter if we completely forget about God and just come running back to Him once we are in deep trouble.

God is so forgiving and loving that He does not care if we are so selfish that we only think of ourselves. The grace of God is like a ray of light that is always on us. It never wavers. It never goes away.

Let us praise God for all the mighty things that He has done. Let us all cling to His wonderful promise of Victory in our daily struggles. Amen!

God's Grace is Limitless

The Lord has always been faithful. His grace continues to pour on us like a beacon of light. Sometimes it feels like that the grace of God is not on us but believe that His grace and blessings continue and it is us who step out of the circle of grace and blessings. The Lord is faithful and sometimes one can't help but cry because of the God's manifestations of love and grace.

Here I share Today's Word with Joel and Victoria Osteen.

Just Imagine


"No one can know a person's thoughts except that person's own spirit, and no one can know God's thoughts except God's own Spirit"
(Ephesians 3:20, NIV)

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

When was the last time you imagined God doing something supernatural in your life? Is there a relationship that needs restoration? Is there a business you've wanted to start, but you are holding back? If there were no limitations on your life, if anything were possible, what would you be willing to imagine?

Friend, the only limits on your life are the limits you have in your mind, and God wants to do exceedingly more than you can even imagine today! He wants to overwhelm you with His goodness and amaze you with His faithfulness. But in order for Him to exceed what you've imagined, you have to at least be imagining something! Why don't you take a step of faith today and let your imagination come to life? Begin to see in your mind all the possibilities for your future. Meditate on the amazing things God has done throughout history. Let that seed of faith take root in your heart. Hold on to His promises because He is faithful. He is able to exceed your expectations and go beyond what you can imagine today!


Father God, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. Today I submit my imagination to You. Help me to see what You see for my future. Help me to take the limits off my thinking so I can receive everything You have in store for me. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

- Joel & Victoria Osteen

The Right Connections

What a wonderful reminder from the Lord.


"A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother"
(Proverbs 18:24, NIV).

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Do you know how important it is to be connected to the right people? Your destiny is too big to accomplish on your own. But God has already arranged for certain people to speak faith into you. He has already placed in your path people who will inspire you, challenge you and help you accomplish your dreams. But the reason some people never reach their highest potential is because they never get away from the wrong people.

Recognize today that not everyone can go where God is taking you. You've got to connect with people who understand your destiny and can call forth your seeds of greatness. You don't have time to spend on people who are always pushing you down, telling you what you can't do, or never giving you their approval no matter how hard you try. Friend, life is too short to drag people along. If you will get the wrong people out of your life, then God will bring in the right people so you can fulfill the destiny He has in store for you.


Father in heaven, thank You for placing the right people in my life. Help me to discern the right connections You have for me. Give me strength to release the wrong relationships so I have room in my life for the people You have chosen to connect with me. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

- Joel & Victoria Osteen

Finding Strength

Today's Devotion courtesy of Joel and Victoria Osteen


"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint"
(Isaiah 40:31, NIV).

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Do you need your strength renewed today? The scripture tells us that when we hope in the Lord, that's exactly what will happen—our strength will be renewed. If you've grown weary and tired, overwhelmed by the cares of this world, it's a clear sign that you need to change what you're putting your hope in. Are you putting your hope in your job? The government? The economy? Another person? Those are all things that will change. But when you hope in the Lord, you are investing in the Rock of Ages! He never changes! He is the only solid foundation for your soul.

Today, find strength by simply putting your hope in Him. Start by declaring out loud, "God, I place my hope in You. I trust that You are working behind the scenes in my life. I choose to rest in You." Then, feed your hope and faith by meditating daily on the scriptures. As you renew your mind with the Word of God, you'll find strength, you'll find hope, and you'll find His victory all the days of your life!


Father God, thank You for renewing my strength as I put my hope in You. I declare today that I love You and trust You. I know that You are working behind the scenes in my life. Fill me with Your peace and joy as I wait on You. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

- Joel & Victoria Osteen

Last Hurrah!

Summer time is fast closing to an end my side of the world. While the rest of the temperate region is getting ready to meet summer vacation head-on,the other side of the world is getting ready to get back to school. As a last "hurrah" my kids and I went to the beach for a last dip before summer ends. We prefer to soak in the pool for the sea water was teeming with jellyfish. Nice place though :)

Thoughts for Today


"…Lift up now your eyes and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward;"
(Genesis 13:14, AMP)

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

God has a place of victory in store for you today! You may be facing challenges. You may look around you and see impossible circumstances. In the natural, it may look like things won’t ever change, but God is saying today, “Quit looking at your circumstances and look up! Lift up your eyes of faith and look beyond where you are because there is victory as far as the eye can see!

Your enemies may have some power today, but remember, our God is All Powerful! There’s no foe that can stand against Him. Those things you are facing are temporary, but God Almighty is eternal. He’s the God who flung the stars into space. He’s the God who spoke the world into existence. When He said, “Let there be light,” light came at 186,000 miles per second. That’s power and that’s the God we serve.

I encourage you to stand strong today. Keep believing because He is working behind the scenes on your behalf. As you lift your eyes to Him, as you focus on His goodness, He will guide you and direct you in the path of victory in every area of your life!


Heavenly Father, today I choose to lift up my eyes of faith toward You. Thank You for surrounding me with Your goodness and mercy. Thank You for believing in me and for preparing a good future for me. Fill my heart with Your peace and confidence as I continue to trust You in every area of my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Imprinted Promo Products

Daughter #1 has been busy attending drug company conferences and symposium. One of the perks of attending such conferences are the freebies that are given away from leading drug companies. We have at our disposal several duffel bag, ballpens, drinking bottles with carabiner, folders and more -all with imprints of different drug company logos.

I am quite impressed with the imprinted products. Since hubby's family business give out freebies come Christmas I thought that maybe, just maybe, there are imprinted promotional product that are affordable. I browsed the internet for such products and stumbled on The site offers varied products that can be imprinted. Some of the products that really caught my attention are the tool gadgets that can be imprinted. Since hubby's family business is a machine shop handy tools like: screwdrivers, tape measures, tire gauges, flashlights and multi-tools are just perfect! A promotional pocket screw driver cost a mere $0.76! Order more and you can get it for less.

The imprinted mugs and promotional key chain are popular products too. The promotional mugs are not the ordinary mugs as you can choose from a variety of shot glasses, travel mugs, ceramic mug, plastic sports bottle and more. Imprinted dot com has all the answer for your company or personal promotional product.

There are some minor renovations that are ongoing in my house right now. It all started when the refrigerator short-circuited which in turn burnt the unit. There was nothing really wrong with the electric wiring in the house. What went wrong was the cord was bitten by a mouse which in turn exposed the wire thereby causing it spark that eventually burn the unit. By the time I was aware of what was happening one wall of the kitchen was already on fire.

The fire was put out. The ref was a total wreck that I needed to buy a new one. Refrigerators are quite expensive and the choices are so varied it's hard to choose which one was best for the house. In times like this, it would have been a great help if I had some Savings Home Depot coupons. I would have saved a bunch if I had coupons for Home Depot. So I bought the refrigerator and it is now sitting mighty proud in its repainted corner.

The kitchen was looking so nice and fresh with its new paint and new refrigerator. I felt the urge to repaint the utility room too and then the basement. The minor repainting has not stopped for now I want to get some new odds and ends at Target. I wonder how many coupons at Target I need to get a major discount on a LCD TV.

Be a Blessing to Someone Today


"A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed"
(Proverbs 11:25, NIV).

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Do you need strength and encouragement to make it through a difficult time? Maybe you´ve been through a big disappointment or going through a situation right now that´s just not really fair. I challenge you today, don´t sit around feeling sorry for yourself or allow that circumstance to overwhelm you. One of the best things you can do is to go help somebody else in need.

The Bible tells us, "God turned the captivity of Job when he prayed for his friends." Isn´t it interesting, Job didn´t see breakthrough by sitting around feeling sorry for himself. He didn´t get healed when he prayed for himself. And we should pray for ourselves and present our requests to God, but if you really want to see things change, go out and be a blessing to someone else. Look for ways to refresh the people around you and watch how your own soul becomes refreshed in return. As you give, it will be given back to you, pressed down, shaken together and running over in every area of your life!


Father in heaven, thank You for Your Word which is life to my soul. Show me ways I can be a blessing to others, help me refresh those around me today. Thank You for refreshing me by Your Spirit. In Jesus´ Name. Amen.
