Today marks the beginning of Christmas season in the Philippines. It’s the beginning of the season of hope, love, and joy. :)
Another friend leaves the company. Ja, see you around, too!
Sometimes we think that it is an inconvenience to help others because doing so requires our precious time and effort. Then miraculously, we realize that in the process of helping them, we help ourselves also. Some wise persons have said it beautifully: When we help heal a wounded person, we also allow ourselves to heal.
I decided not to let the long weekend pass without cooking anything. So last night, after watching the movie TMNT, I prepared three kinds of pizzas, drawing inspiration from the Turtles’ fave food and some online sources. :D
Appetizer: Salsa Pizzitas
Main Attraction: Creamy and Cheesy Pesto Pizza with Grilled Chicken and Mushrooms
Sweet Ending: Triple Chocolate Pizza (Chocolate Crust Topped with Chocolate- Infused Cream Cheese, Chocolate Cookies, White Chocolate Bits, Cashew Nuts and Maraschino Cherries)
I’m glad my family liked all of these. They almost shouted, “Cowabunga!”
We’re done watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, one of the iconic groups of superheroes during my childhood (I even remember wearing a TMNT-designed shirt back then). I’m feeling a bit nostalgic now…sapagkat ako ay Batang 80’s! :D
Lord, whenever some things in my life seem shaky, let my hope and faith in You remain as solid as a rock that I can hold on to.
Another brother, padi Joey, has left our team. But as the cliche goes, we are not saying goodbye…only see you around!
Another Baby Shower Party
One of the best part in sharing financial knowledge to people is when they get to say THANK YOU. Nothing can equal the fulfillment brought about by people being inspired to dream bigger and to significantly change/improve their lives.
I have found one of my life missions and I see myself doing it for the rest of my life. :)
Two simple words describe the Good News I’ve heard today: Faith and Humility. God listens to those with unwavering faith and to those who humbly ask. Beauty lies in how prayers are answered: in God’s own way and time.
Kaya nga ba hindi ako gaanong nagme-make up at nakikisali sa trends…. :D
Allow me to share the Good News I heard earlier based on how I understood it:
Walang himala…nasa puso natin ang himala. (The priest uttered this based on Nora Aunor’s famous lines.) We sometimes look for big miracles and fail to see the simple things that happen daily: we wake up, we breathe, we survive despite what we call difficult times. These are miracles already. When we focus on Jesus, we experience miracles and happiness, much similar to how Peter was able to walk on water. There is danger though that when we are too happy, we tend to forget to thank Jesus. The challenge is to continue to call on Him not only at times when we feel that we are sinking but also during moments of happiness.
It is a great thing when our eyes are able to see miracles unfold. But we are also blessed when we do not see yet we believe.
Have a great Sunday, everyone! :)
