What's your sugar level ?





I Had a sugar random test last week at my brother in-law's clinic.... Praise God I am not diabetic ! Hmmm...o f course I am not... I go mountain biking 3x a week and jog once a week. I am not into sweets and softdrink. What’s your sugar level? If you do not know... better check it out!

Thankful Thursday

"Great is Thy Faithfulness... Oh God our father..." goes the line of the song we sang during the funeral of my dear friend... As I have posted yesterday, I had the privilege to give the message during the funeral service of a dearly departed college classmate. I thank God for knowledge and wisdom that I was able to complete the message while suppressing my emotion. I wanted to cry... but I am afraid I might not finished the message God wanted me to speak. Praise God, many attendees came to know the real meaning of Life and Death. I believe many silently received Jesus as their personal and savior as I led them the sinner's prayer

On death

When someone else dies, it pierces us through our heart. Last week I was tasked to give the message for a funeral service of a dear friend.. my classmate in college. I realized, it is so hard to give a message of encouragement when you yourself is disheartened and affected. My words came out with trembling... I just suppressed my feelings.

The grief in the death of a loved one is that the loved one is no longer there. Wherever the loved one is in eternity, they're not here now, and will not be back. Thus, no talk of eternity and the loved one's place in it is able to really relieve the grief and loss. Our Choire sang “ Trust His Heart”.... and people were crying. We cried because we will be missing her.

The tribute came... love ones and close friends gave their memories with Haidee.When Christians tell stories about the dead person's life, we tell them not just because they're ripe for the telling or because it lets us get some of the grief off our chests). Christians mainly speak of the life of the dead person because God worked divine grace into our lives through that person.
All through the service people are crying... her co-teachers... her students.Life indeed is so short... we must live each day as though it is our last.

YS : Fried Kangkong

We ate Fried Kangkong at Mang Inasal last night but...... this will be our last ( sob!). Our healthy diet prohibited oily foods.. this is one is tasty but very oily. My wife suggest for a kangkong salad instead. What do you think?

Having My Own Domain

My wife got domain name for her two blog sites last month. She has been encouraging me to do the same but my mind is still confused. A friend told me that my page rank will be downed to zero if I will change my URL address. Since this is my first month to have a Page Rank of 2, I still want to enjoy it. Instead I am challenging myself to make my PR one step higher by March.

On the other hard, I am fascinated to have my own domain hosted outside blogger. It gives me a sense of ownership (Hmmm... I have various names on my head right now. ). Anyway, my blogger friend suggested to search online to help me with my decision. Finding the best hosting service for a website can be complicated because there are various bogus webhosting providers on the internet today. The best way to select a quality web host is to take the selection process one step at a time. I went around the blogosphere yesterday to seek advises and most of them highly recommended to search through Webhosting Geeks. I tried it and I was redirected to the Best domain hosting providers for 2010. I have found a website provider that suits my needs. How about you? Have you made up your mind to get a domain of your own?

TRUE LOVE WAITS CONCERT & SYMPOSIUM


Our church “ Blessed Hope Community Church International “ will hold its annual Valentine Concert and Symposium on February 14, 3pm in line with our “ TRUE LOVE WAITS” campaign. The event will focus on the need of our young people today to have the right perspective and knowledge in choosing priorities in life. It is a reality that many of our youth became the victims of wrong choices and suffers the dire consequences of it. With the moral decline of our youth which affects also the families in our society.

This is the time of intimate searching for the young people about the true essence of friendship, courtship and being in a relationship. A group of performers ( two are finalist of GMA's Pinoy Pop Superstar) will present these truth through music and dynamic speakers through their own personal experiences.

If you are with-in the city of Cagayan de Oro, please bring your friends and young people to CIC ( formerly Rizal Theater), Montalvan- Capistrano Sts.

To our sponsors specially JL . Thank you so much!

To all my blogger friends, please pray for this event.

Software 3 : Duplicate Software Download

As I have blogged before, I am not a tech freak . Call me laid back person but I am what I am . Maybe I am just too dependent from my son and wife when it comes to computer software and hardware. All I do is surf the internet, download and upload files as many as I want. I really do not care if these files crowded up my hard disk not until yesterday when my drive D & E crashed up! Ooopppsss... I then realized I have many unwanted and redundant files on my PC.

The technician told me that there are countless of duplicated files on my hard disk such as images, videos, mp3 ,Pdf and power point files that were eating up my PC space. Thank God duplicate software download is free at www. moleskinsoft.com. I watched as the technician did the cleaning. Deleting all these unused files was easy as ABC. Less than an hour, my PC was back to normal.

So while your PC is still in good condition, get rid of duplicated files now. You can do it your self ... no need to call for a technician . They also have Duplicate email remover and Outlook duplicate remover. Visit the site now to see what I mean!

Looking for Car Spoilers?

I and my 13 year old son are car and automobile enthusiasts. We just love to surf the net for the latest models in sports and luxury cars. We have a bunch of magazines and posters at home that can be part of small library just for cars, hehehe. Lately, we posted on our rooms our desired vehicle for our family this year. For sure we ca not afford the latest model in luxury vehicles but at least we dreamed of having a brand new SUV with a price that we can afford.

While waiting for the blessing to come…we are making our existing car (a sedan) look good by putting some accessories on it like rear spoiler and a new DVD player. We are planning to put it on sale at a higher price so we decided to put additional features so buyers can appreciate not only the smooth ride and good condition of our car but also the added beauty of accessories on it.

And the best part of that is to see our car having this beautiful piece of spoiler that made it looked tough and ready to race like a sport’s car. Thanks to carid.com for their rear spoilers . We received many compliments from our friends who also appreciated what we have done to our ride. Thanks to the support of my wife and our kids, we now enjoy our family car together knowing that we have done the right thing to make it look good.
