    Mimi, 4/16/2015

  12. So last night I thought to myself, I asked, I wondered, and so I began. So here we are in the flesh, as human beings, in a world of many happenings, we sin, we have ill thoughts, of ourselves, of others, we judge, we compare, we listen, we conclude, we accept or we reject. We laugh and we feel joy and contentment.  We move on each and everyday, as the seasons change, as the waves come and go, we just move on to the important things in our lives. While we see and hear of others pains, and they're all in different areas of our bodies.  We move onto the living things we do, we work and we pay for the obligations of each day.  We pray, we dwell, we call, we don't, its easier sometimes not to call, or listen to an aching heart,  because, yes because we don't want to hear the others' pain, it makes us sad, it makes us angry, or we chose not to care, even those we love. It 's an everyday ebb and flow, its life.  And I tell myself, its not good to be that way, be set aside, not cared for, not listened to.  And I know that sometimes, even when we love and want to help others, we fill our minds with our own conclussion of what is right and correct for them, and here we are as humans with our own faults and judgemental ways.


    We are humans, we have many fears, we have many stories, we anger, we hold onto to things that circle in our minds, like the good, the bad, and the very ugly. We are all different, in many, many ways. We learn to love in many ways, we learn to dislike for our very own reasons, we learn and act on ill thoughts, on selfishness, but one thing I say to you. Be strong, be good, be the best friend to yourself, and to those you call "friends"  for they mean well for us, to your family members and neighbors. Remeber to treat others like we would like to be treated. Do the best you can each and everyday,  love yourself, be kind to others, help others when they need someone that is perhaps in a bad state of mind, needing a hand, or a meal.  Lets face it, we've all been there, that is why we help, even when we don't think we should.


    Have faith and hope, and never loose sight of that, know that things happen, its not sent by God or any force, its life, and we're in it. In this life there is death, illness and life's mishaps happen. Live everyday to the fullest, pray, trust in your God, in your universal spirit. Believe that everyday you will wake up to being in love with yourself, not in a selfish way, but in a way of happiness and fulfilment to yourselt. Trust, Believe and Hope that everyday is a blessing, to be with your children, your loved ones. And always think of others, clear our minds in how we think, about others, and how much more we have. Share your love, share your wellness with others. And remember to treat others in kindness, in the same manner in which we would like to be treated. Take care of yourselves and don't let others take advantage of that  kindness. Remember we live as human beings, in a life we see, we hear, we learn and we live and we let live.


    That is my story on LIFE.


     La paz por mi Hermanas y yo

We only went on two dates, but isn't ready for a steady relationship right now. I'm hoping down the road he will be in contact with me again. Right now, he's just really into himself. I want to send him love in prayer. I don't think he's closed the door on me entirely and is exploring his options. He doesn't know what he wants so I don't think he's going to meet anyone else online. Please pray that I'll get him off my mind and that you will pray for this guy. Thanks in advance!

    Jesus said, "I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it" (John 14:13, 14).
    I come to you Heavenly Father today and I have confidence in Your Word, and I take hold of Your promises to completely heal my daughter Melissa Ang.
    Please forgive all her sins and remove all obstacles that is preventing her from healing.
    FATHER GOD / JESUS, you are the miracle healer & physician. I believe whatever treatment medication, injection & laser on the eye you have directed the doctor is to resurrect Melissa's left eye 20/20 vision permanently and making the eye disease go away.
    We put our trust and faith with JESUS that Dr Sharel C Ongchin and Russell Van Gelder are doctors that GOD has directed them to diagnose and treat her. We praise GOD and have faith that Melissa's left eye will be completely healed.
    In Jesus name, I pray. Amen!

    bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel
    to every corner of society.

    We ask you to bless us
    in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty.
    Give us the strength of mind and heart
    to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened;
    give us courage in making our voices heard
    on behalf of the rights of your Church
    and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.

    Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father,
    a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
    gathered in your Church
    in this decisive hour in the history of our nation,
    so that, with every trial withstood
    and every danger overcome—
    for the sake of our children, our grandchildren,
    and all who come after us—
    this great land will always be "one nation, under God,
    indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
