Depressing....

Hi! Everyone.....it's Friday and it's depressing because there is no sunshine and it's raining in our area. Not only it's raining, also freezing cold. When the weather is like this, raining and no sunshine? I feel sad, depress, and bored! I don't feel like going anywhere but we have to leave the house because my daughter is going to trick or treating tonight at the military post with her best friend. I could stay home and watch TV and do my chores (laundry) but I don’t want my daughter nagging me about going to trick or treating so we have to take her. We didn’t buy her costume because she only wears once plus she doesn’t like to wear any costume, anyway? So she decided to paint her face instead of wearing costume (don’t know what and who?). Wearing costume is not important for trick or treat as long as your kids are happy, satisfied and safe. I always says to my child, don’t go trick or treat by yourself, don’t take any candy that’s open, don’t go to people you don’t know and always bring flashlight or cyalume lightsticks (chemlight or snap lights). It’s nice to see your child is happy for bringing different kind of candies but I hate it because it causes cavities. Oh well, make sure you advice them to drink a lot of water and brush their teeth.


Happy trick or treating to y’all…….

Psalm 55:22

I got this email letter from a good friend. I just want to share with you about one good story...

Subject: Re: Psalm 55:22
I was driving home from a meeting, this evening about 5, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., and the car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely managed to coast, cursing, into a gas station, glad only that I would not be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to wait for the tow truck. It wouldn't even turn over. Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the 'quickie mart ' building, and it looked like she slipped on some ice and fell into a gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay.
When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked really haggard with dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped her up, and I picked it up to give it to her. It was a nickel.
At that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff with 3 kids in the back (1 in a car seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95.
I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help, and she just kept saying 'don't want my kids to see me crying,' so we stood on the other side of the pump from her car. She said she was driving to California and that things were very hard for her right now. So I asked, 'And you were praying?' That made her back away from me a little, but I assured her I was not a crazy person and said, 'He heard you, and He sent me.'
I took out my card and swiped it through the card reader on the pump so she could fill up her car completely, and while it was fuelling, walked to the next door McDonald's and bought 2 big bags of food, some gift certificates for more, and a big cup of coffee. She gave the food to the kids in the Car, who attacked it like wolves, and we stood by the pump eating fries and talking a little .
She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City. Her boyfriend left 2 months ago and she had not been able to make ends meet. She knew she wouldn't have money to pay rent Jan 1, and finally in desperation had finally called her parents, with whom she had not spoken in about 5 years. They lived in California and said she could come live with them and try to get on her feet there.
So she packed up everything she owned in the car. She told the kids they were going to California for Christmas, but not that they were going to live there.
I gave her my gloves, a little hug and said a quick prayer with her for safety on the road. As I was walking over to my car, she said, 'So, are you like an angel or something?'
This definitely made me cry. I said, 'Sweetie, at this time of year angels are really busy, so sometimes God uses regular people.'
It was so incredible to be a part of someone else's miracle. And of course, you guessed it, when I got in my car it started right away and got me home with no problem. I'll put it in the shop tomorrow to check, but I suspect the mechanic won't find anything wrong.
Sometimes the angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter of their wings...
Psalms 55:22 'Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.'
Here is the prayer: 'Father, I ask You to bless my children, grandchildren, friends, relatives and email buddies reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace, In Jesus' precious name. Amen.' I know I picked more than four -- you can, too. When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, 'Jesus, could You please get that for me ?

Melamine Scare

Do you remember about the Melamine scare that started in China? Well, I thought it was over until we watched the news in TFC The Filipino Channel yesterday and they found one cracker that made in the Philippines with melamine in it. It was Sunflower blueberry crackers. These crackers are in demand or popular for importing in Philippines and exporting on other countries. Hongkong found the crackers has melamine. They are still investigating how the melamine get there or what kind of milk they used to mix the ingredients. Managers in different stores (in Philippines) got allerted to pulled out the crackers out of the shelves so that no one will get hurt or harm. Consumers have to be careful and more allerted what to buy. Hopefully, this problem we are facing will be solve as soon as possible.

All Souls Day is getting closer...

In the Philippines, people are getting ready or preparing before the holiday of "Undas" or "All Souls Day". They are going to the cemetery to start cleaning up the tombs of their love ones and some are painting it new. Some people already bought their candles before the “Undas” while the price is still cheap. People are being practical now a days for buying artificial or fake flowers to put it on the tombs because not only they are cheap, they are also convenient. It’s convenient because they don’t have to clean up the mess and they can also use it all over again. During the “Undas”, people go to the cemetery to give respects to their love ones and a sign that they never forget them and always remember them. They bring candles and flowers and they pray. Some people bring food as a sign of offering to the deaths. For those who can not go to the cemetery, they light candles on front of their house and they pray. Some kids are collecting the melted candles or wax so that they could use it for regular use. That’s how they celebrate the “Undas” or “All Souls Day” in the Philippines.

Have A Nice Day to y'all......

More Word of God's about Encouragement

God's Salvation

Then whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Acts 2:21

No one else can save us. Indeed, we can be saved only by the power of the one named Jesus....... Acts 4:12

I'm not ashamed of the Good News. It is God's power to save everyone who believes, Jews first and Greeks as well. God's approval is revealed in this Good News. This approval begins and ends with faith as Scripture says, "The person who has God's approval will live by faith." Romans 1:16-17

It was not God's intention that we experience his anger but that we obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Thessalonians 5:9

God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but to save the world. John 3:17

He wants all people to be saved and learn the truth. There is one God. There is also one mediator between God and humans-a human, Christ Jesus. He sacrificed himself for all people to free them from their sins. 1Timothy 2:4-6

Health tip!!!

Does any one knows that long-term use of widely available ibuprofen dramatically cuts the risk of Alzheimer's disease? According to a 245,000-patient study of U.S. veterans, it's simple to slash your risk of Alzheimer's disease. Investigators found that veterans who had used ibuprofen for more than 40 percent less likely to develop the heartbreaking ailment. Results also showed that the longer ibuprofen was used, the lower the risk for dementia. Study head Dr. Steven Vlad of Boston University says more research must be done before doctors can recommend that patients take ibuprofen to prevent dementia.

God's Word of Encouragement

God's Forgiveness

Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Through Christ, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer. Before the creation of the world, he chose us through Christ to be holy and prefect in his presence. Because of his love he had already decided to adopt us through Jesus Christ. He freely chose to do this so that the kindness he had given us in his dear Son would be praised and given glory.
Through the blood of his Son, we're set free from our sins. God forgives our failures because of his overflowing kindness. Ephesians 1:3-7

God has rescued us from the power of darkness and has brought us into the kingdom of his Son, whom he loves. His Son paid the price to free us, which means that our sins are forgiven. Colossians 1:13-14

God is faithful and reliable. If we confess our sins, he forgives them and cleanses us from everything we've done wrong. I John 1:9

"In addition, all the prophets testify that people who believe in the one named Jesus receive forgiveness for their sins through him." Acts 10:43

"Bleesed are those whose disobedience is forgiven and whose sins are pardoned. Blessed is the person whom the Lord no longer considers sinful." Romans 4:7-8


Have A Nice Day and God bless you all........

Researchers say it’s important to consume only low-fat dairy because high-fat products do not affect the risk of high blood pressure. Hopefully, this small tip will help on your high blood pressure problem.

Doctor's Appointment

Hello everyone…how’s your day today? My husband has doctor’s appointment today and I accompanied him since I don’t work. Also I want to go some places like Takko, Vogele and Real (German stores) besides hospital coz he is my driver (he he he….) While I was waiting for my husband to be done in his appointment, I went to use their restroom and I found a book. A God’s Word of Encouragement and I started to read and I enjoyed it so it’s my pleasure to share it with you on my next blog. After we finished on my hubby’s appointment, we went to Takko to see the jacket that I saw on a deustch flier or catalog. I really like the jacket, not only simple and nice but also on sale. It was disappointing because they run out so we went to the other store but no luck again because they are out, too! I felt dismay but I found a pullover clothe in Vogele store for cheap price so I bought it. The last store we went to is Real and I bought a lot of yarn for 1 euro only per yarn. Since I started to learn knitting, I’m been looking for yarn. I went to Arts and Crafts in our community but not a lot of choices and it’s too expensive ($5.75 per yarn). I’m glad that I saw Real’s fliers and I bought a bunch of yarns. I’m sooo tired but I guess it’s worth it because I have the things I wanted.

God's Word of Encouragement

Hello….here’s the words of God about Encouragement that I promise to share with you.
God’s word overflows with his promises of love, forgiveness, salvation, peace, hope, and joy for everyone who trusts in his don, Jesus. These passages describe present and eternal; blessings. They’re encouraging words, a reminder of the tremendous assurance which you and the believers have through faith. Because of God’s faithfulness, his words have special application to the difficult moments of your life-times of loneliness, fear, temptation, discouragement, sickness, anxiousness, and impatience. His words alone offer you the encouragement you need in these difficult moments. May our faithful God bless your reading of his life-saving, life-charging words!

Gods Love-Gods Faithfulness

God loved the world this way: He gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but to save the world. John 3:16-17

I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love which Christ Jesus our Lord shows us. We can’t be separated by death or life, by angels or rulers, by anything in the present or anything in the future, by forces or powers in the world above or in the world below, or by anything else in creation. Romans 8:38-39

Christ died for us while we were still sinners. This demonstrates God’s love for us. Romans 5:8

God our father loved us and by his kindness gave us everlasting encouragement and good hope. 2Thessalonians 2:16

This is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the payment for our sins. 1 John 4:10

Disasters?

Hello everybody….It’s Saturday! Are you surprise that I’m doing my blog on weekend? It’s because my husband is working and I’m done with my chores at home since yesterday. So I’m relaxing and maybe later, I will be going to one of the Giant Flea Market in our community. Anyway, someone left a message on my tag board. Asking what do I think about disaster? There are different kinds of disaster. One is disaster in financial like what’s happening in different country especially the 3 biggest continent like United Sates, Europe, and Asia. We got affected by that kind of disaster not just long ago. It was sad and upsetting but what else can we do? I have 1 solution to prevent for happening again to us. To sell all the stocks we have while there is still left but someone stopping me. 2nd disaster is calamities like Cyclone that happened in Myanmar, Hurricanes that always hit United States in Florida coast, Louisiana, and some part of Texas, and Earthquakes that many people died and buried in China, Typhoons that hit Philippines, Taiwan, and China, And most of all, Wildfires that always hit California whether it’s summer, spring or winter, always there’s a fires. The third disaster I think of is disaster in family. Broken family, fights between father and son or mother and daughter, husband and wife or wife and in-laws. Money and jealousy are the main reasons why family is fighting with. Sometimes for no reason!
I hope that I gave the answer to the question of DRR or at least give him/her some ideas about disaster.

Have A Nice Weekend to y’all…….

Bad News!!!!

Hello everyone….Yesterday was bad day for my husband and I because we got our mail with bad news. No one dies or hurts except our investments. I’ve been hearing about the financial crisis in United States but I never thought that it will affect our investment, too. My husband was sooooo upset and dismay about the news. We’ve been in this company for more than 10 years and we never, ever think that it will happen to us this kind of situation. My husband is so crazy about these stocks that he depends on for my daughter’s college or for his 2nd retirement. Me? I just ignore it. I don’t like to depend on any company who has stocks because they are not too solid enough to depend on. Much company will tell you at first that you’ll make a lot of money if you invest with them. I would say, yes but at the end, your money will go to the drain. They can’t promise a 100% that your money will not be touch, use or lose. If their company is going down, your money for sure is going down with them. We lost almost $20,000!!! That’s a lot of money for regular citizen like us. I told him that we didn’t really lose our money except the one we gained. I even mentioned him that it wasn’t lost totally everything. We still have money on it and the best thing to do now is to cash it. I also suggested to him to buy his dream car Mercedes Benz before we lose everything. He is still convinced that it will go up or it will go back to normal. I don’t really know what is his plan for our investment but for me is for my daughter’s college. It’s upsetting but we can’t do anything about it except hoping that everything’s will go back to normal.

Have A Nice Day to y’all

Amazing shots!!!







These photos are my favorite shots. I shot it when I was in the airplane about 25,000 miles above the ground. At first, it wasn’t clear as it is now, it’s because I used the auto adjust. It makes my photos more clear, colorful and beautiful. I’m sooo proud of myself that I don’t have to go to a class or learn how to take a picture. You just keep taking pictures and you will get breathtaking and magnificent photos. I don’t need an expensive camera just to get these astonishing views. It’s my privilege to share my photos to all of you and next time, I will post more.

Have A Nice Day to y’all……

Stockholm History

It's Sweden history and thank you for my helpful resource Travelbook Europe (AAA).

The settlement of Sweden began about 12,000 B.C. when hunter/gatherers crossed a land bridge from continental Europe. By 1500 B.C. the population was trading with central Europeans in the Danube Basin and the Mediterranean. In A.D.98 the Roman historian Tacitus noted the strength, horses and trading pelts of the Sviones. From the 9th to the 11th centuries Swedish Vikings controlled trade across the Baltic Sea and used fortified trading posts to control Continental trade routes to the Baltic Sea and Constantinople.
In the 19th century missionaries reached Sweden, and by the end of the 11th century Christianity had replaced paganism and helped to unify the country under a single ruler. Medieval Sweden, a loose federation rife with civil wars, saw an increase in the number of settlements, with the village replacing the clan as the basic social unit. In the mid-1400s a constitution delineating the powers of the monarch, ruling council and people was established. The 1st Swedish parliament, the bicameral Riksdag, was established in 1435.
During the 1523-60 reigns of King Gustav 1 Vasa, the power of the Catholic Church was broken and the principle of a hereditary monarchy was established. In the early 1600s Sweden became a great northern European power seeking control over the Baltic Sea and the western trade routes of the Russian empire and for more than a century engaged in nearly continuous warfare.
The Age of Liberty began following the death of Charles XII in 1718 and saw the abolition of absolute monarchy, the drafting of a new constitution and an increase in parliamentary power. The Coup d’├ętat by Gustav III re-established a strong monarchy, and Sweden embarked on a bellicose, expansionistic foreign policy which lasted until the end of the Napoleonic Wars. For Sweden’s participation in the 3rd Coalition against France, it received dominion over Norway in 1814. Improvised by wars, Sweden adopted policies of non-alignment and neutrality that continue unbroken.
19th-century Sweden was a poor country whose population more than doubled 1815-1900. Nearly one in 4 19th-century Swedes emigrated: 850,000 of them went to the United States. Many democratic reforms were enacted during this period, however, including compulsory free education, equal rights of inheritance for men and women, religious freedom, local self-government, penal code and parliamentary reforms, and free trade. In the last half of the century Sweden’s industrialization began, based upon its iron ores and great forests.
In the 20th centuries Sweden has experienced almost continuous economic growth and increased prosperity. Norway peacefully gained independence in 1905. During World War 1 Sweden maintained its neutrality and invoked its right to trade with all belligerents, although a British blockade against Germany caused food shortages. Parliamentary reforms in 1907 and 1918 and universal suffrage completed the democratization of the country.
In 1932 the Social Democratic Party gained control of the government, a control that, except for a 4-year period from 1975 to 1980, it has maintained since. The 1932 administration led Sweden out of the worldwide depression earlier than other nations through implementation of public works programs and agricultural supports. The political atmosphere of the ‘30s was one aimed at establishing folkhemmet, or “a home for the people”; in other words, the purpose of society was to meet the needs of the people in times of unemployment, illness and old age. The outbreak of World War II, however, forced the postponement of much social welfare reform.
After the war, comprehensive laws were enacted establishing old-age pensions, child and rent allowances, health insurance, a tax reorganization which redistributed wealth, and educational and research reforms and expansions. Sweden chose not to become a member of the European community because it feared membership would compromise its traditions of non-alignment and neutrality; it is, however, a member of the European Free Trade association. Norway, Denmark and Sweden form the Nordic Council, which coordinates the economic and social legislation of its members and forms a frontier-free labor market.
In 1980 the country experienced its worst labor dispute when, during one 2-week period, 25% of the population was either on strike or locked out. In 1982 the social Democrats returned to power following a 4-year hiatus. In 1986 Prime Minister Olof Palme was assassinated; the 1989 conviction of the alleged assassin was unanimously overturned by a court of appeal. No motive for the assassination was established, nor was a weapon found.
That contemporary Sweden is one of Europe’s most socially advanced nations can be attributed to 2 factors: It has been at peace since 1815, and it has had an ethically homogeneous citizenry. Sweden is poised to enter the 21st century as a demographically aging country whose birth rate will begin to fall below the death rate. Population growth is largely due to immigration—one in 8 school children are the child of immigrants. In this highly regulated society, workers are beginning to chafe under the high taxation that supports social welfare programs. The social changes of the 20th century occurred in a homogeneous society; those of the future will occur in a heterogeneous society.

My Finished Project


Hi! Everyone.... I finally finished my knitting project. It took me 3 days and my daughter has simple scarf. She even used it when we were at Stockholm. I’m addicted now on knitting because I’m half on my next project, my daughter’s poncho. I’m so glad that I went to knitting class because making scarves or ponchos will help us since its winter time. I might start my own business, selling scarves or ponchos, he he….

Too Much Walking on Weekend.....

Hi! Everyone….how’s your weekend? We went to Sweden on 3 days weekend for American holiday (Columbus Day). We flew with my family and my cousin and his wife to Stockholm. Stockholm is the most beautiful place or city I’ve ever been so far in Europe. We feel comfortable because everyone speaks English, from kids to adults. We don’t have to learn their language! They (Swedish people) are courteous, well-mannered, and polite. They are also honest because if they don’t know your question, they let you show where to go to get help. Everyone there is helpful!!! I said to myself that it’s my first and last to go to Sweden but seeing the place, I changed my mind. I might go back there one more time. So much to do…..It is expensive place from foods to hotels but I think it’s worth it. You don’t need a tour guide because riding on Hop On Hop Off bus; it will tell you everything you need, from history to famous sights. We appreciated the man who helped us out about all the information. He saved us money for not buying the Stockholm card. We thank him a lot. Next time we go there, we’ll get his name. We won’t forget him. Thank you again…. Check out my other site for more pictures

Health Tip!!!

Hi! Everyone…I was reading this newspaper and I found something interesting that caught my eyes. I want to share it with you and it’s about 2 ways to beat breast cancer. Now a days, many people die or suffering in different kinds of cancer. We want to prevent having breast cancer by Losing weight and Eating more vegetables. According to Researchers at Vanderbilt University Cancer Center discovered that women with a genetically high risk for breast cancer can cut their risk in half, simply with a diet high in cruciferous vegetables. Women who ate a lot of these vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and kale have a significantly lower risk of postmenopausal breast cancer. Meanwhile, in different study at the famed M.D. Anderson Cancer Center found that heavier women are more likely to get more aggressive and dangerous forms of breast cancer. Researchers found a particularly aggressive type is inflammatory breast cancer (45% obese patients but 15% in normal weight patients). After 5 years, a significantly greater number of obese women reported a recurrence or reappearance. “We are learning that the fat tissue may increase inflammation that leads to more aggressive disease,” according to Dr. Massimo Cristofanilli, who led the study. Hopefully, sharing this article I read may help some of you out there!

New Hobby...

Hi! Everyone…I’m so happy today because I learned new hobby. Knitting is frustrating at first but once you familiarize on all kinds of stuffs about knitting, then you’ll start to like it. My daughter has knitting kit but we both don’t know how to do it so I enrolled myself to a beginner knitting class. She made but I want to learn too. I attended on one of the class today at Arts and Crafts. The cost wasn’t that bad, $27 for 3 hours and the person will teach you one on one. First she taught us to get to know about the knitting stuffs like different kind of needles, what kind of yarn and many more. But she gave us the basic needs for knitting like yarn, needle and step by step instructions. The first step was hard for me because I’m not used to operate 2 needles at the same time. She started to teach us to make simple scarf... She showed us how make stitches, garter stitch (knit), stockinette (knit & purl), ribbing (2 knit, 2 purl) and casting off (closing). When I got home, I continued to do the scarf that I started at the class and the more I practice, I started to hang of it. My hands are a little bit sore but it will get used to it! Now, when my daughter saw me doing the knitting, she wants me to teach her and she is quick learner. She got it for 4 trials and started doing it by herself. When I finish the scarf, I will take a picture and show you my new project. Hopefully, next time I will learn how to make big blanket or sweater.

Have A Nice Day to y’all….

Women then vs now???

Hi! Everyone…I would like to talk about the difference between women then versus now. My cousin (back in the Philippines) asked me something that made me think. She gave me an idea to put it on my blog and share it to all of you. It didn’t take me that long to think because they are both unlike in different ways. I would say that women before were conservative, shy and stay home mom or wife. Women made sure that when their husband and children get home, the house were clean, food were ready to serve and everything’s in proper place. Taking care of their family is their priority. They also wore in conservative looks and clothing. But women now are wild, aggressive, liberated. They also want to have career to make money not just for themselves but also to their family, too. Some women now are obsessed on material things. Some are love to have sex all the time just for their pleasure not for reproductive. Some are using sex as a weapon or a tool until they achieve their goal. I also noticed about women in this generations are nagging, hates doing their household chores, and they back talk to their parents and sass! No respect…they rather hang out with their friends in malls than helping their parents at home. For my own survey, I would say that women now are worst than before. Some of you might not agree for what I said but it's just my own opinion.

Nice weekend!!!

Hi! How’s everybody doing this weekend? Well, it was beautiful and nice day last Saturday. We went to Wiesbaden to visit one of my husband’s cousins. We took her to Mainz Kastel for her video repair. We went to visit one of the PX (military store) in Mainz since the store is next to the video repair. My husband found a laptop that he likes so we bought another one (sus!!! more debt!). The price was not that bad, plus the Star Card (military credit card) have promotions that when you buy more than $299.00 you will get 6 months no payment and no interests. So he decided to get the laptop for himself. After we shopped, my husband’s cousin took us to the Stadttmitte or they call it City in Wiesbaden. We walked and took some pictures for remembrance from Wiesbaden. They have lots of stores, restaurants, nice church and market platz (where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables). They even have a small flea market. Check out my other sites for our photos.

Busy Day....

Hi! Everyone…hope your day is okay. I was so busy today doing all my chores. I went to picked up my mail, finally got my stuffs that I ordered online last 3 weeks ago. What’s more, I got some “pasalubong” a keepsake or presents from my aunt who just came from Philippines. She sent us some pastillas (made of coconut), yema (made of milk), cheese (made from Philippines) and sago (tapioca). Thank you Tita! After I got my boxes from mail, I went to the Aquatic pool to register my daughter and myself for swimming lessons. I was unlucky because it was full! The swimming lessons is reasonable price $45 for 8 sessions. I didn’t do the registration since we will miss the 2 sessions for the reason that we are going for vacation. So we will wait to the next class and hopefully we’ll get in. I also stopped by at the grocery store to buy milk and went home. And then, I made some chicken quesadillas for our dinner. Easy dinner!!!!
