Lost Some Weight :)

My progress. So I started a detox/portion control diet on March 1st but didn’t start recording my progress until March 5th. I was 116 and by March 25th, I was down to 105. Easter weekend was really hard on me. I wouldn’t be surprised if most everyone dieting also gained a few back, because I did….

Sorrows Into Joy

Even after all these years of being a Christian, I still struggle with trust. In all my relationships, God wants me to dearly cling onto Him. When I’m at my weakest (usually a few days out of the month…) I’m reminded of traumatizing experiences in my past. But without a relationship with the Lord, I…

My Birthday Adventure

My boyfriend, David flew in from L.A. last Thursday. We bowled that night with his older brother Robert Jr.. We went to Suncoast casino, where we used to watch movies on Tuesdays for $5, then afterwards go bowling because it was a free round if we show our ticket stubs. There’s always something to do…

Unusual Dream

​He sees every teardrop. He knows all your desires. He sees every effort. He knows more than you! Trust Him, He is guiding you! The other night I had a dream. I was driving a truck pretty fast on a pretty empty freeway. I don’t know why I was speeding. I felt I was not…

Diet In A Snapchat

So I’ve gained a few pounds this winter that I’d like to shed just in time for spring so when summer comes I just have to maintain. Maybe my extra bit of blubber was a contributing factor to my winter blues. My small frame measures up to an exact 5 feet. My current driver’s license…

Lace Up

Father God, I love focusing on You. I know I don’t do it all the time, but when I do I remember how awful life is when I don’t. Every time You bring me to that point, I’m so grateful because I get to choose to want to change again. And every time I want…

Heart of Worship

I believe we are, some more than others thirsty for truth. The ones who are the least aware of it, suffer the most. We show that void in the way we treat others, we show it in the way we cope with challenging situations, how we go about our day, how we handle our money,…

Florante

I was bedridden a little over a year ago. I caught a fever. My temperature fluctuated for a week. I recall waking up at 2 am because of such an urgency to start praying. I would say it was an almost audible voice I heard. I would never have woken up on my own if I…

Officially Members

It’s been a month and a half since my family have been members of our church. I’m proud of my younger brother, who has been attending Sunday school on time. Last month he enjoyed a youth camp retreat up in the cold at Mount Charleston, Las Vegas. The Sunday of his return, he did not…

20 Ways to Show You Care

Life can make us so busy at times that we often forget about making our loved ones feel special. There are many obvious and classic ways we can show how much we care such as making a mixed CD of songs, serving breakfast in bed, or washing dishes, but there are even more creative and…

I Deserved It

I’ve been hitting the same wall several times lately. Not literally. No. I’m talking about the writer’s block. I’ve been fearing too. But I’ve found a remedy aside from praying. I realized as soon as I’ve peeked my head in a few blogs to say “Hi” and “Hello”, I’m inspired to write again. God reminds…

What is it You Want?

I spent the first eight years of my life in quite a corrupt, yet humble country. But we had joy in our hearts. My mom, my older sister, and I lived a simple life in little Philippines. I almost died several times there. Well, I exaggerate. I almost completely sliced a big toe after running…
