Speech Language

Would you believe that my husband uttered his first words as a baby when he was 4 years old? His parents got worried thinking that he has a problem with speech. Fortunately and thanks be to God, my husband today is not only good in speech but a good speaker as well. Speech-Language Pathologist Jobs are in demand here in our place both in the public and private schools. Special classes for children with disability are hiring speech instructors and many private individuals are enrolling their kids to speech language specialists. I believe that this is a need of our time since communication plays a very important role in everyday life. What do you think?

Our church 50th Anniversary....

Last August 21 was the grand celebration of our church's 25th Anniversary and Thanksgiving . It was a very memorable and enjoyable one as churches from all over the Philippines and the other part of the globe gathered together to declare God's faithfulness in each of our lives.

Now that the Silver Anniversary is over, our church is looking forward to the next grand celebration which is the 50th Anniversary. We laugh at the idea that the 50th anniversary celebration would be the most dragging and longest celebration since the leaders of the church are already at their 70's and 90's that day. Some might have dementia  or Alzheimer's Disease already while some could no longer witness the event because they are already 7 ft. below the ground.

We were talking about old age.. how our  memory  are crushed to the point of not remembering how to do simple everyday things such as tie one's shoes or even dress. It is  forgetting to wear a  jacket or coat when it is raining or cold outside or even  not brushing one's hair or teeth before going out. We laugh and laugh imagining what would be our life  then  but at the end we can not help but Praise God for   the years added to our life. If God will not tarry, I wish to be present on our 50th Church Anniversary with my wife , children and grand children. I do not know If I would still be blogging...  I would be  68 yrs. old then !

Lead Me Lord : Lyrics & Video







Lead me Lord, lead me by the hand
And make me face the rising sun
Comfort me through all the pain
That life may bring
There's no other hope
That I can lean upon
(Choro)
Lead me Lord
Lead me all my life
Walk by me, walk by me across
The lonely road that I may face
Take my arms and let your hand
Show me the way
Show the way to live inside your heart
All my days, all my life
Refrain:
You are my light
You're the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord
I need You there
You are my light
I (just) cannot live alone
Let me stay
By Your guiding love
All through my life
(Choro)
Lead me Lord
Lead me Lord
Even though at times
I'd rather go alone my way
Help me take the right direction
Take Your road
Lead me Lord
And never leave my side
All my days
All my life
You are my light
You're the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord
I need You there
You are my light
I (just) cannot live alone
Let me stay
By Your guiding love
All through my life
You are my light
You're the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord
I need You there
You are my light
I (just) cannot live alone
Let me stay
By Your guiding love
All through my life
All through my days
Lead me, Oh Lord
Lead me Lord

Indeed dogs are man's best friend


Saw this  at Yahoo headline and was deeply touched when I read the article. Truly "Dogs" are man's best friend. It reminded me with the movie " HACHIKO" .... I guess we have to watch the movie again... and cry again...

A Dedicated Community Nurse

Now that our friend from our local church passed the Nursing Board Exam last year, she hopes to work or even be a volunteer worker to any government community outreach programs offered so she could build up her credential as a nurse. She really dreamed of working abroad and landing a good job as a nurse to support her family and support the church as well. I even included her in one of my blogs as she prepared to apply for a job. She needed nursing scrubs for that particular work and inquired from us where to buy cheap scrubs. We really supported her for this seeing her sincerity in serving in the local church and how she loves her family as well.

Julie as we fondly called her, after spending three months looking for a job was blessed with an opportunity to be hired as a community nurse in one of the many municipalities here. This was really a big break for her. She was to be assigned in a local community taking care of the local folks in a rural areas  where they will administer health lectures, clean-up drives, vaccinations and other important works for that particular community. The nursing scrubs  she used when still in college is still the one she’s using until today. For her, engaging in anything that extends care and love to the community is of utmost important no matter how small it is. That’s one thing we admire about Julie.

So for all the nurses out there visit this site http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/categories/Scrubs/Scrubs-for-Women/  .. you will find a lot of trendy and chic Nurse Uniforms.

Shoot Me : Leaders Conference



I have not been blogging for the past two weeks because of our  Church 25th Anniversary Celebration. Above was one of the highlights of the  Festivity. Thank God I was one of the speakers.. I hope you can find me here...

I missed my motorbike

I’m a motorbike fan. At times when I use the computer at home, I would search for motorcycles in You Tube. When we bought our third motorcycle, a Suzuki brand (my first is Yamaha and my second is a Honda motorcycle), I really took care of it. After five years of using it, we finally decided to sell it to a friend so we could come up with the full payment of our house. I admit I missed riding a motorbike. My first helmet was a hit with my friends. Like the Nolan N104, my helmet had a unique design and it was top of its class. At this writing, I have placed a picture of my dream bike at our dream wall…hopefully next year, I can have one again.

Wordfilled and Wordful Wednesday

Public Service Announcement

This is a public service announcement about zoloft and pphn. Zoloft is widely known with its generic name sertraline. It is medicine used to treat depression, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder  and premenstrual disorder. Studies have found and proven a link between this drug and the life-threatening lung disorder called PPHN. These medications have also been linked to heart defects in newborns and other multiple developmental birth defects
I love Playing Basketball when I was still in my early years ( 16 yrs old to 20's) but now no more... I have been injured while playing basketball and it was such a painful one. Therapy lasted a month and it cost me a considerable amount of money. It's good if we had an insurance to take care of the hospitalization . I hope we have the same as Hawaii Lawyer Personal Injury.

Joy in our Journey of Faith

BE THERE WHERE GOD WANTS YOU TO BE…
“Tua ka diin aha gusto sa Diyos “
Colossians 2:6-7

“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”
Proverbs 4:24-27

Let your eyes look directly ahead And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you. Watch the path of your feet And all your ways will be established. Do not turn to the right nor to the left; Turn your foot from evil.
…YOUR WORSHIP TO GOD – Ang imong pagsimba sa Diyos
…YOUR FAMILY – Ang imong pamilya
…YOUR MINISTRY – Ang imong buluhaton

Mellow Yellow Monday

Next Destination will NorfolkBroadsHolidays.

Nikon, Canon or Olympus ?


When it comes to DLSR , Nikon and Canon are the best. This is according to majority of gadget freak individual. But make way of the the new Olympus XZ-1 Digital Camera. According to some reviews it is the best Digital Camera for a newbie and those who are still learning the basic of Professional Photography. The camera is user-friendly and comes with heavy duty olympus camera batteries that could take up thousands of images.  Not bad for half the price of its  Nikon and Canon counterparts.
