A Message from God!

I missed last week's Wordless Wed. and Photohunt Sat. but I don't wanna miss this Gospel yesterday! (hope u will take time to read coz it truly is a wonderful message for everyone!)

Luke 6: 27 - 38
27 "But I say to you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.
29 To him who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from him who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt.
30 Give to every one who begs from you; and of him who takes away your goods do not ask them again.
31 And as you wish that men would do to you, do so to them.
32 "If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.
33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish.
36 Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.
37 "Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;
38 give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For the measure you give will be the measure you get back."

For me, this is such a powerful message! I've had my flaws & mistakes among others & in return, I've been treated horribly, cursed, my reputation has been ruined and have been yelled into my face...but no matter what they've done, no matter who they are...I always have my open arms to accept them!And I am thankful to God that some has accepted their flaws too! Some has realized no1 is perfect & no1 has the right to judge any1 & I just pray that others may someday see the good on some1 and not the bad...no matter what I've been thru, I know God is always looking over me for I still have my family and friends beside me. I may not have riches to offer them or strength to hold on too for I have nothing and I am weak- easily gets crashed but still they're at my side...ready to accept my imperfections...embracing my flaws that's why I am willing to give what I can give not only to those who have loved me but to those who have hated me...I don't want to engrave bitterness in my heart amongst those who treated me as enemy...in God's eyes, He knows I'm always forgiving and He knows how much I love them!!!

"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them."

*UPDATED* Details below!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


I have a lot to tackle today but I will start out with the bathroom 1st. It needs a little attention...This shows the tiles that needed some scrubbing & the toilet as well...

And this is the sink that obviously needs to be cleared...
I also wanna pay attention to the kids clothings...this picture tells it all!
And this is where it's supposed to go...a chaotic,unorganized dresser...
Somehow, I was at the point where I didn't care anymore but now I needed to care coz have a hard time looking for their clothes. Some of these are way below or over their sizes! I'll post the photos when I'm done, probably tonight...It really took me a lot of gutz to post these photos,LoL!

*UPDATE*

I was able to get it done asap! Newly washed towels & rags, squeaky clean floor & toilet...viola!

A bunch of windex spray...cleared the counter...scrubbed the sink...here's what I get!And finally, the one that took me a long time to organize! I ended up w/ a couple of boxes to give away at salvation army & the rest went to the closet...so, here's what's left for the dresser!
Now, it's so much easier to dress up my kids!!!

P.S.
Sorry for those who left their links here...i messed up the code so, i lost it all! Pls. bare with me...i'm really sorry!

Photo Hunt - Theme: Broken


I am late for this one but I still wanna make sure I won't miss this week's theme - broken. When u hear that word, typically, u envision a piece of something that is totally damaged but I wanted to find something deeper...something meaningful...and then it dawns on me! My dearest bestfriend! Whom I've known for more than 15yrs... we grew up together, went to the same school and practically treat each other like sisters!
(Photo Gallery)

Why broken? I know how deeply her heart is broken...recently, she just lost someone she was hoping to be with for the rest of her life. made plans for their wedding that is supposed to be next month & I couldn't be thrilled enough for the two, hoping to be at their wedding!He was some1 that I trusted too, i trust him so much that i felt he will be the guy who can take care of my bestfriend, yes...i played a matchmaker 7yrs ago & everytime I see the two happy together, I am happy indeed! But all these came to an end when he told her a horrible news! He did something awful...something that caused my dear friend to fall apart...all the plans & dreams that they build together are now only memories that cannot be fulfilled.She cried so much that the tears she shed were unbearable...I know she is strong enough to handle everything but I felt all the pain and though I know "time will heal the pain" but for now...i feel horrible for i know there's nothing i can do to mend her broken heart...i know she needs to wallow...i know time will come she'll pick up the pieces together and move on...hang in there girl...hang in there!!!

Oh btw, I got her permission to post this...

Tackle It Tuesday!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme
(tackle)

This is my 1st time to post for Tackle It Tuesday. Somehow I bumped into this site and was interested to check it out. I was so eager to join for the ff. reasons:
  • highly motivational
  • rewarding in the end
  • u can gain friendship w/ fellow members
  • get some useful tips
  • gain control over your life
  • to be organize
So, for my 1st entry, I chose the toy room closet! I am just so fed up with all the kid's toys! From every occasion, more & more toys are coming in and it gets so much out of control that it leads to a messy room & I'm glad to have a closet to hide most of the stuff but in return, some toys have just been dumped off and you're not getting the worth of it! Plus it is hard to find something that you can play with your kids mainly because it's not organize...So, I finally got it resolved! Here's what I can't stand to look at!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I throw away a bunch of toys several times, seems like they keep coming back! My solution: get a HUGE box to put away excessive toys, labeled stuff to easily find 'em, arrange 'em in categories...Way on top left are dolls & noisy elmo while on the right are the coloring & art stuff; Below are educational toys and I am happy to finally park that bike inside!

Gross!

When it's Saturday...it's photohunt time! I was hesistant to join in this week's theme : Gross and I guess u know why...I couldn't think of anything but this!

It might not look like it's gross but on microscopic view, it's loaded w/ millions of germs! I've read that the best way to kill 'em is to microwave it for 2mins. That's all it takes to get rid of those nasty germs...sometimes, I soak it w/ bleach too or simply juz throw them away when it gets nasty...

FACT: Kitchen sponges are the No. 1 source of germs in the whole house. Why? The moist, micro-crevices that make a sponge such an effective cleaning device also make it a cozy home for germs and more difficult to disinfect. Wiping your counters or dishes with a dirty sponge will only transfer the bacteria from one item to another.
