I LOVE My Family, Do you LOVE them too?

Gaano mo kamahal ang family mo? Ako ganito ko kamahal ang family ko!..




My Love Story Part 4-Our First Anniversay

Iniisip ko na sana masurprise ko ang sham2 ko sa first anniversary namin, gusto ko yung major major na surprise. So what I did is that I saved a lot of money para makaipon ako sa gagawin kong surpresa sa pinakamamahal ko. Grabe ang nangyari sakin that time, andami kong pinagdaanan para makaipon lang. First na naisip ko ay mamamasyal na lang kami sa MOA nun pero sumagi sa isip ko na bakit hindi na lang ako magprepare ng isang special dinner na ako mismo ang maghanda para sa kanya. Imposible man pero naplano ko lahat ng gagawin ko para sa dinner na yun. First nagisip muna ako ng place or venue na may magandang ambiance, yung gaya ng nakikita ko sa mga pelikula, yung sweet ba. Wala akong maisip na magandang place nun kasi pagnagrent pa ako mapapamahal ako ng bayad nun, pero kasi gusto kong maging special yung night na yun para samin eh so nagisip talaga ako ng magandang place but the last place na naisip ko ay sa bahay ng auntie nila rogem na friend namin. No choice ako that time kasi wala din akong pera masyado so what I did, bumuli ako ng mga tela na worth 1k ata lahat yun, pati mga christmas lights(buti na lang at christmas na nun mura c-lights s bayan..hehehe) all in all umabot ako ng 3k sa decorations lang, pati sa pagpipinta ng bakal na parang tent eh ginawa din namin kahit mainit at sikat na sikat ang araw..tnx sa mga kaibigan ko na nagtyagang tumulong sa preparations na ginawa ko, andame naming nagawa at enjoy naman kami, natatawa nga kami nun kaming tatlo ni rogem at jomar(naisekreto ko sa sham2 ko yung ginawa kong surprise until nung anniversary namin) kasi pinagdududahan kami ng sham2 koh na nagbebeer hauz daw kaming tatlo(joke hahahaha)..That time walang kamalay malay ang sham2 koh sa ginawa namin, pinaganda tlaga namin ang venue na kagaya sa mga romantic dates na napapanuod ko sa tv kaya masayang masaya ako nun at excited sobra..Ok na ang lahat ang preparations ng venue pati ng food halos lahat ng paghihirap namin malapit ng magwakas hinihintay ko lang yung araw ng first anniversary namin. Medyo nagkatampuhan kami ng sham2 koh kasi nagtatalo kami kung san kami mag aanniversary sabi ko we spend time na lang with friends at sabi ko sa hauz na lang nila rogem ang venue namin, medyo naging magulo ang sitwasyon kasi pinipilit ko na magspend kami ng time sa hauz nila rogem pero di pala alam ng sham2 koh na may nagaantay palang surprise sa kanya nun. Dec. 18 christmas party namin yun, napaaga ang celebration namin na dapat ay kinabukasan pa sana kaso may gagawin daw na x-mas party sa hauz nila rogem, so ang nangyari napaaga ang plano ng celebration..medyo di rin naging maganda ang mood ko nun kasi late na ng makapunta kami sa hauz nila rogem kasi masyadong nawili sila sa x-mas party nun at pasenya sa mga kaibigan ko kasi naudlot yung pagkain sana nila kasi minadali ko kasi masyado ng late yun. Akala ng sham2 ko nun nagyaya lang ako ng simpleng inuman sa hauz nila rogem di niya alam isusurprise ko sya nun. medyo late na kami nakarating medyo nilagyan ko pa kasi ng konting drama yung pagpunta namin, pinauna ko kasi sila rogem, jomar, jasper, moja, ador sa venue para iprepare nila yung set, mga candles at yung food(tnx nga pala mga tol). Medyo nagkatampuhan pa kami ng sham2 ko nun para mapatagal ko lang yung pagdating namin dun sa venue at para masurprise na lang sya sa hinanda ko. Pagdating namin dun medyo di pa prepare lahat kasi nagsisindi pa lang ng mga candles sa table at sa dadaanan ng sham2 koh papunta ng table namin kung san kami magroromantic candle dinner(dami ngang kandila eh hahaha ubos pera ko pero ok lang kasi sulit naman). Nilagyan ko ng piring ang mga mata ng sham2 koh para naman surprise talaga, pumuwesto ako sa may likod ng kurtina at kakanta na ng theme song namin which is "my endless love". Ready na ang lahat, kinakabahan ang sham2 ko habang nakapiring ang mga mata nya at nakapuwesto na rin sa dadaanan nyang may candles, bigla akong bumirit ng endless love at tinanggal na nya ang piring at major major nasurprise sya sa mga pangyayari, di nya alam na may ganun na mangyayari that time. Halos maiyak sya(pinigilan daw nya sabi nya sakin after namin magdate hahaha) at di halos makapaniwala, lahat ng yun nagawa ko sa tulong ng mga kaibigan ko, ang di ko akalaing imposible ay nagawa ko nung mga time na yun..Sobra grabeng tuwa ko, naging masaya lahat ng nangyari kasi lahat ng favorite things pati pagkain ay ibinigay ko sa kanya kaya tuwang tuwa sya(lalo na sa hello kitty na regalo ko sa kanya, may gold ring din akong ibinigay kaso di nagkasya, sana icherish nya yun 4ever..)sa lahat. Naging masaya ang date naming yun, yun ang pinakaunang anniversary namin na pinakamasaya ako at sana masundan pa ng madaming anniversary..Sana masayang masaya sya nun at sana di nya rin makalimutan lahat ng yun..Salamat nga pala sa mga kaibigan kong tumulong sa preparations at pasensya napauwi din kaming maaga at di kayo nasaluhan sa inuman..hehehe..bawi na lang sa susunod..sana nandyan pa rin kayo sa next surprise ko, tnx ulit ng marami kung di dahil sa inyo walang surprise na nangyari kaya utang ko yun sa inyo..Sa buhay natin ngayon kung may bagay kang gusto mung abutin o kaya eh kunin gawin mo lang ang lahat ng makakaya mo para makamit mo yun..wag kang susuko para maging masaya ka rin di ba? dahil ang buhay natina ay weather weather lang yan..Sana nagustuhan nyo ang kuwento ko at sigurado ako masusundan pa to pag maraming nagcomment dito at nagrequest for another love story of my life..

My Love Story Part 3-The best day in my life


It was December at malamig nung mga time na yun christmas season na naman, sa pagdaan ng panahon maraming naging isyu ang dumating samin lalo na sa akin, that time kasi halos mawalan na ko ng pag asa sa panliligaw sa sham2 koh kaya naisip ko na ibaling na lang sa iba ang pagmamahal ko. Nung time na yun malapit na ang christmas party ng IS so naisip kong bumili ng regalo para sa special someone, pero di ko alam kong kanino ko ibibigay, sa sham2 koh ba o dun sa isang girl na niligawan ko din..naging malapit din kasi kami ng girl na yun so naguguluhan ako kong kanino ko ibibigay ang gift ko. Napili kong bumili ng isang silver ring na kasing sukat ng isang babae, medyo nahirapan din ako sa pagpili nun buti na lang tinulungan ako ng ate ko na pumili, so maganda yung napili namin..That time may nakita din akong isang babasagin na shin chan(makulit na cartoon character dati) figurin, nakita kong may butas na maliit sa ilalim nun kaya naisip kong ilagay yung singsing na nabili ko, so nilakihan ko pa yung butas para magkasya yung singsing. Para kasi sa akin gagawin ko sanang surprise yun para magtapat ng aking pag-ibig sa special someone ko, pero di ko talaga alam kong sino sa kanilang dalawa. That time pala yung prof. na nanligaw sa sham2 ko ay nanligaw din sa girl na naging close ko, nagkaroon sila ng mutual understanding sa isat isa pero naging malabo din yung relationship nila kasi mahal pa daw ng girl yung ex nya so naguguluhan din sya. Naging magulo na ang lahat para sa akin pero di pa rin ako nawawalan ng pag asa sa sham2 ko na that time ay close na rin kami. Nang dumating ang December and it was the 19th yun yung gabi na nag christmas party kami, niyaya ko ang sham2 koh na pumunta sa party pero ayaw nya, pero sa huli napapayag ko din sya. Dumating ako ng school na nkaporma na sabi nga nila congressman daw sa dami ng alahas na suot ko na regalo naman ng erpat ko. Nandun ang BD na nun pa ay barkada ko ng mapadpad ako sa NCBA, ayaw ni sham2 koh sa BD at ilang sya s kanila kaya siguro pati sa akin. Pero that time naisip kong magtapat sa sham2 koh kasi nalaman kong yung prof. namin at yung babaeng naging malapit sakin ay sila na that time. So nawala yung alinlangan ko sa dalawang babae at nung time na yun lahat ng atensyon ko ay napunta sa sham2 koh na nun pa man ay crush ko na at gustong maging gf. Nasa labas kami nun ng barkada nakita ko syang dumating, napakaganda nya talaga kahit sa malayo, sinundo ko sya para naman di siya mailang sa BD. Nagkakuwentuhan kami nun about sa nangyayaring party, pero nasa labas kami nun at parang walang pakialam. Di ko na napigilang magtapat sa kanya at sa udyok ng BD sa akin na magtapat na ako, kinuha ko na yung singsing na binili ko at sa sobrang excited tinanggal ko sya sa shin chan figurin at sabay amin sa kanya ng pag-ibig ko. Nagkailangan kaming dalawa nun pero napa OO ko siya kaya masayang masaya ako nun at di ko maipaliwanag talaga sa sarili ko kahit pa nasabi namin sa isat isa na ittry lang muna namin at pag di nagwork maghihiwalay kami, but for me thats the chance na di ko dapat na sayangin pa..Natapos ang party at nagkayayaan sa Gondas that night, naisip ko kasing mangtreat kasi sinagot ako ng babaeng matagal ko ng hinahangad na mapasaakin. Doon namin nakuha yung word na sham2 sa shashimi ba yun?hahaha..pero ou dahil dun sa pulutan naming yun naisip naming itawag yun sa isat isa dahil gaya nga ng shasimi, we were freshly in love with each other that night.. to be continued

My Love Story Part 2-Our happy days


October that month ng magyaya sya na pumunta kami sa Padis Point Cubao, kasama namin mga friends namin na sila Rogem, Jomar, Agnes, Gracie at asawa nya, kasma ko naman friend ko na si Bryan nung mga time na yun. Im excited na makita sya nun kasi first time ko lang na makakasama sila. Nagtower kami nung time na yun, masaya nagkwentuhan kaming lahat, yung mga girls naman nagsikanta sa stage habang mga boys naman nagkukwentuhan sa tabi. Kausap ko si Arnel nun na asawa ni gracie, sabi nya alagaan ko daw at wag sasaktan si sham2 koh bilin nya..alam ko kasing boto sila ni gracie para saming dalawa that time so suportado nila ako sa panliligaw ko. Natapos ang inuman at nagsikanya kanya kaming uwi nun at di ako mapalagay na di sya kasabay pauwi buti na lang at kasama nya sila gracie so medyo naging ok na at di na ko masyadong nagaalala para sa kanya. After nun text2 pa din kami at nagpapakiramdaman na lang. One time niyaya ko siyang maglunch kami sa Elyongs nun, andame naming nakain at masyado ring madami naorder namin, malas lang at umulan ng malakas that time at nabasa kami at mas malas ng mashort ako sa inorder namin, so di ako nagpahalata na kumuha ng pera sa hauz namin nung tumila yung ulan. Pagbalik ko medyo nainip sya nun so bad timing talaga ang nangyari but naging ok naman ang lahat, nakuha pa naming magpapicture nun so its our first picture together at masayang masaya talaga ako that time but still ganun pa rin kami pakiramdaman lang at text2 lang...to be continued

Love Story by Taylor Swift



We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony in summer air

See the lights
See the party, the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd
And say hello, little did I know

That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you please don't go, and I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while

'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
But you were everything to me
I was begging you please don't go and I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me, they try to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it's real
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess
It's a love story baby just say yes
Oh oh

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you is fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said

Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head? I don't know what to think
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring

And said, marry me Juliet
You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh, oh, oh, oh
'Cause we were both young when I first saw you

Kipper

Kipper and Kim You know the phrase "love at first sight"? We do! Many people have suggested over the last several years that my husband and I should get a doggie. I have epilepsy and do volunteer work out of my home, so the idea of getting a doggie has always been in the back of our minds. My husband, Josh, and I both had dogs growing up.

My older brother and sister-in-law (they have 3 dogs and a cat!) came here from Washington for Christmas. At one point, they told us that they almost adopted a dog for us from petfinder.com, and were going to give her to us for Christmas. They thought twice and figured it would be better to check with us first. They really poured the idea on us pretty heavily. Finally my brother said they should back off... No Pressure!!!

I had no problem with it, but it took a little more convincing for my husband. He was concerned about my health and wanted to be sure I would be able to take care of a pet, but they had set a little spark in us...

Sparkles, the dog that Marc & Deb wanted to adopt for us was adopted by the next morning – (We're happy for you, Sparkles, if you're somewhere out there reading this!).

Then we saw Caramel from Rover Rescue. We went to visit her that evening. I had called my brother to tell him, and he emphasized that we would only be going to see her and then to come home and discuss adopting her. He said he didn't mean to force us into anything and to remember that we were just going to see her- we WOULDN'T be coming home with a new family member!

Well, we saw her. Within minutes, both of us fell in love with her and knew that we couldn't leave without her! We went home that night and I called my brother and left him a message telling him that I had done exactly what he said NOT to do!

Kipper and Josh Not only is she a wonderfully sweet and gentle little girl (she is now Kipper Lucio Lang) she fits right in with our family! It's somewhat strange to think of days without her and we've only had her for a week!

The best part is that since we've had her, I have not had a SINGLE epileptic episode. Not ONE! No headaches, no seizures, no problems at all. It's amazing what a little TLC (from her to me!) makes a difference!

Mahal ko ang Bayang Pilipinas


Bayang Magiliw
Perlas ng Silanganan,
Alab ng puso
Sa dibdib mo'y buhay.

Lupang hinirang,
Duyan ka ng magiting,
Sa manlulupig,
'Di ka pasisiil.

Sa dagat at bundok,
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw,
May dilag ang tula at awit
Sa paglayang minamahal.

Ang kislap ng watawat mo'y
Tagumpay na nagniningning,
Ang bituin at araw niya
Kailan pa ma'y 'di magdidilim.

Lupa ng araw, ng luwalhati't pagsinta,
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo;
Aming ligaya, na 'pag may mang-aapi
Ang mamatay nang dahil sa 'yo.

Mother Son Relationship


A mother has undying love for her children. Her presence itself deeply affects the entire life of her little one. Our mother is the first woman in our life and cannot be replaced by anyone. Though a mother loves all her children equally, despite distinction of sex, it has been seen often that a daughter is always more attached to her father, while a son is closer to his mother. A mother's love always makes her son stronger as well as balanced in his life. While a father makes his son strong enough to fight with the world, it is the mother who teaches him when and where to think from his heart.

The most delicate aspect of mother and son relationship comes, when another woman enters into his life, either as a girlfriend or as a wife. This is the time, when almost every mother starts feeling insecure and becomes apprehensive. From being the only woman in her son's life, she has to share the affection with someone, who is as important in her son's life as she is. This is the time for the son to make his mother understand that she has and will always be the most special person in his life and that someone else can never take her place. On the other hand, a mother should also understand that she has to stop holding on to her son all the time and let go of him.


There is a thin line between love and dominance. When the love turns into domination, it is then that the mother son relationship starts turning strenuous. The delicate balance of a mother and son relationship should always be maintained and the effort should be from both the sides. A mother should never interfere in her son's life, but at the same time, she should always be there when he needs her. Similarly, a son should never take his mother's love for granted and should always give her due respect. To get some tips on how to strengthen a mother-son bond, browse through the following lines.


Tips To Strengthen the Mother Son Bond
  • Communication holds the key for any relationship and a mother-son bond is no exception. Conversing with one another can prove to be very beneficial as well as advantageous.
  • Listening is another important aspect of a bond. A mother should listen to ever thing that her child says to her, even if it sounds silly and stupid. On the other hand, a son should listen to whatever advice or suggestion that his mother gives. He should realize that whatever she is saying is for his own benefit.
  • Right from the beginning, teach your child what is right and wrong or what is expected from him or what is not. This way you are sure to face fewer trifles with him, when he becomes a mature adult.
  • Every son looks at his mother as a best secret sharer. To be his confidante, every mother should build in confidence and make her son get that feeling that she is the best person he can look up to.
  • Remember, action speaks louder than words. You need to set a perfect example for your son, because that is the only way he would look up to you as a role model.

Nature Lover



While I walk the eroded path,
Shells crunch under my feet.
I see three duckies take a bath,
I feel the sun’s sweet heat.

Geese groupies gape at me,
The river rapids are high today.
Squirrels scamper up a tree,
While the water snake sidles away.

The birds are bickering,
The icy water tickles my toes.
The fireflies are flickering,
I see green in the leaves of the gingkoes.

As a nature lover, I am fond
Of the natural spaces of Swan Pond.

FIVE WAYS TO MAKE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD STRONGER


1. Learn From GOD : Read The Bible.

How do we know who God is? How do we begin to understand His character and attributes? It is only by reading the Bible that we can know the truth about God. In this age of information, it is easy to get caught up in all the changing research and data which bombards us everyday. How important it is to remember that God's Word never changes! The Bible has the answers for all our questions and it offers hope for our times of hopelessness. It tells us of our origin and tells us of our eternal destiny. Most importantly it shows us Jesus Christ:

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT "...faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Romans 10:17).

In other words, if you want your faith to grow and mature, read God's word on a consistent basis.

READ: Psalm 1 , Isaiah 40:7-8 , 2 Timothy 2:15

2. Talk To God : Pray.

Prayer is simply talking to God from your heart. Your prayers don't have to sound "religious" and you don't have to use only 'Christian sounding words. God wants to hear from the "real" you and He wants to hear your deepest concerns and needs. Prayer is mainly a time for us to thank the Lord and to praise Him for the great things He has done in our lives. Read Matthew 6:5-13 to see an example of a prayer which Jesus prayed.

Prayer is also a time for us to receive God's forgiveness for our sins. When you sin, don't beat yourself up and condemn yourself but go directly to God and confess your sins in prayer. God will be "faithful and just" to forgive you. Look at I John 1:8-10 and underline these scriptures in your Bible. Also, remember that you now belong to Jesus Christ and...

"...There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1).
3. Hang Out With Other Christians : Fellowship.

Now that you have entered into God's family, you need to spend time with your new brothers and sisters. It's a good idea to develop friendships with people who have been walking with the Lord for a long time and spend time with them so you can learn from everything the Lord has shown them over the years. Likewise, as you grow and mature in the Lord, there will be others who begin to learn from your example. That's what fellowship is all about--the strengthening of all of God's people; or as the Bible puts it, "...the building up of the body of Christ".

READ: Ephesians 4:15-16 , Hebrews 10:19-25 , Acts 2:42-47
4. Tell People About Your Faith : Tell Others.

Chances are, before you gave your life to Jesus, someone close to you or even someone you had never met before shared with you the good news about a relationship with God. Always remember that God hasn't redeemed you, forgiven your sins, and given you a new life so that you can horde all of His blessings for yourself! He wants you to share your new life with others.

Jesus said, "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:14-16).

5. Make A Public Commitment For Jesus : Be Baptized.

Baptism is an outward expression of what the Lord has done on the inside. It is not the act of baptism which cleanses you of your sins. Jesus said, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned" (Mark 16:15-16)

Notice that it is not the lack of baptism which brings condemnation but unbelief. However, Jesus is commanding us to be baptized and we should be careful to obey everything that God asks of us.

To learn more about baptism,
READ: Romans 6:3-4 , Colossians 2:10-13

A Father's Love


Years ago, there was a very wealthy man who, with his devoted young son, shared a passion for art collecting. Together they traveled around the world, adding only the finest art treasures to their collection. Priceless works by Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet and many others adorned the walls of the family estate. The widowed elder man looked on with satisfaction as his only child became an experienced art collector. The son's trained eye and sharp business mind caused his father to beam with pride as they dealt with art collectors around the world.

As winter approached, war engulfed the nation, and the young man left to serve his country. After only a few short weeks, his father received a telegram. His beloved son was missing in action. The art collector anxiously awaited more news, fearing he would never see his son again. Within days, his fears were confirmed; the young man had died while rushing a fellow soldier to a medic. Distraught and lonely, the old man faced the upcoming Christmas holidays with anguish and sadness. The joy of the season, that he and his son had so looked forward to, would visit his house no longer.

On Christmas morning, a knock on the door awakened the depressed old man. As he walked to the door, the masterpieces of art on the walls only reminded him that his son was not coming home. As he opened the door, he was greeted by a soldier with a large package in his hands. He introduced himself to the man by saying, "I was a friend of your son's. I was the one he was rescuing when he died. May I come in for a few moments? I have something to show you." As the two began to talk, the soldier told of how the man's son had told everyone of his, not to mention his father's, love of fine art.

"I am an artist," said the soldier, "and I want to give you this." As the old man unwrapped the package, the paper gave way to reveal a portrait of the man's son. Though the world would never consider it the work of a genius, the painting featured the young man's face in striking detail. Overcome with emotion, the man thanked the soldier, promising to hang the picture above the fireplace. A few hours later, after the soldier had departed, the old man set about his task. True to his word, the painting went above the fireplace, pushing aside thousands of dollars
worth of art. His task completed, the old man sat in his chair and spent Christmas gazing at the gift he had been given.

During the days and weeks that followed, the man realized that even though his son was no longer with him, the boy's life would live on because of those he had touched. He would soon learn that his son had rescued dozens of wounded soldiers before a bullet stilled his caring heart. As the stories of his son's gallantry continued to reach him, fatherly pride and satisfaction began to ease his grief. The painting of his son soon became his most prized possession, far eclipsing any interest in the pieces for which museums around the world clamored. He told his neighbors it was the greatest gift he had ever received.

The following spring, the old man became ill and passed away. The art world was in anticipation, that with the collector's passing, and his only son dead, those paintings would be sold at auction. According to the will of the old man, all of the art works would be auctioned on Christmas Day, the day he had received the greatest gift. The day soon arrived and art collectors from around the world gathered to bid on some of the world's most spectacular paintings. Dreams would be fulfilled this day; greatness would be achieved as many would claim, "I have the greatest collection." The auction began with a painting that was not on any museum's list. It was the painting of the man's son. The auctioneer asked for an opening bid, but the room was silent. "Who will open the bidding with $100?" he asked. Minutes passed, and no one spoke. From the back of the room came a voice, "Who cares about that painting? It's just a picture of his son." "Let's forget about it and move on to the good stuff," more voices echoed in agreement. "No, we
have to sell this one first," replied the auctioneer. "Now, who will take the son?" Finally, a neighbor of the old man spoke. "Will you take ten dollars for the painting? That's all I have. I knew the boy, so I'd like to have it." "I have ten dollars. Will anyone go higher?" called the auctioneer. After more silence, the auctioneer said, "Going once, going twice, gone." The gavel fell. Cheers filled the room and someone exclaimed, "Now we can get on with it and bid on the real treasures!" The auctioneer looked at the audience and announced that the auction was over.
Stunned disbelief quieted the room. Someone spoke up and asked, "What do you mean, it's over? We didn't come here for a picture of some old guy's son. What about all of these paintings? There are millions of dollars worth of art here! I demand that you explain what is going on!" The auctioneer replied, "It's very simple. According to the will of the father, whoever takes the son ... gets it all."

Puts things into perspective, doesn't it? Just as those art collectors discovered on Christmas Day, the message is still the same: the love of a Father, whose greatest joy came from his Son who went away and gave his life rescuing others. And because of that Father's love, whoever takes the Son gets it all.

A love poem for no one


When I look into your eyes
I can see the joy inside
But also the fear you hide
The fear of me saying goodbye
So I’d like you to know
When I look into your soul
I think about the future
And I see no distant end
You are more than just my lover
You are my new best friend
Although i can’t express to you
In words just how I feel
I care for you immensely
And all of this is real.



Heartbreaks..


Heartbreaks don’t only come once in a while, you get heart broken when you have high hopes and dreams about something one minute, and in just the flash of a second you’re let down. And all that you wished for comes crashing down so you have nothing else to look forward to in the morning. The one person who made your life worth living for is gone and leaves you with nothing but memories, no sign of caring, sympathy and just a memory of their face. When you can do nothing but watch them walk away and no matter how much you ask for them to return, they continue walking. When you’re so used to them being a part of your daily life so when they’re gone you feel nothing but emptiness and that you’re incomplete. Like you can’t breathe without them being beside you or having them there with you. How they no longer belong to you & you’re left answering your own questions about what went wrong. How it feels wrong that you’re not on your own and you’re missing a part of your life. Like you’ve let yourself down because the one person you lived for is no longer with you. Like when you care for someone so much it hurts to care anymore than you already do. But when they’re gone the pain just can’t compare to how much it hurt when you had the one person, how it hurts to the point where you don’t know what the point is to live anymore. To get up in the morning and go on with your life but at night it’s hard for you to sleep because you’re so used to having communications with that person before bed. And when you finally fall asleep you don’t wanna wake up because you’ve realized that now your dreams are so much better than reality. Because before you met this person, you dreamed about all that you ever wanted and when you found them, all your dreams came true. And reality was better than your dreams. And now that they’re gone you realized that you’re right back where you started because now your heart is broken, dreams are better than reality.

Cupid Doesn't Have a Clue by Arky Mendoza


This story is completely true, however, name's have been changed to protect anonymity. I was there and made it happen myself. It starts out with my own love story. A romantic relationship that has since died.

My girlfriend of two months went away to the UK to see family, and we decided we were serious enough to wait for each other to return. She was to be gone 7 weeks, which turned into 3 whole months of only getting to see and talk to each other on-line and over the phone. It was difficult, but we managed.

A friend of mine, Krystal, invited me and a few others out nightclubbing while Renee was away. I brought my friend Hamish along because it was how we rolled. Best friends through anything.

My friend was feeling really down that he'd just had to break a girl's heart by telling her he wasn't attracted to her, and after a few drinks, he seemed to get a little down. I resolved that we hit the dancefloor, where the music was loud enough and the lights bright enough that we could just party on and not worry.

After what seemed like only moments, krystal was dragging me over with her to dance, and she was getting very seductive with her body language, which made me back off. She got me to dance with her no less than three times, but as I kept backing off, she got the hint.

My friend seemed a mite interested in Krystal, and I began to push them together...literally. I pushed Hamish into Krystal's personal space where she dragged him straight in to dance. it didn't take long for them to retire to "the wall" where they proceeded to lock lips and get a little bit more amiable towards each other.

We all got cabs home, and I talked to Hamish the next day. Apparently he wouldn't have sex with her and they were having a date the following week...

...They'll have been together for two years and engaged for six months this July.

Ako'y sayo lamang..Sana IKAW rin AKIN lang..

Ikaw na ang may sabi, na ako'y

mahal mo rin
At sinabi mong ang pag-ibig mo'y di magbabago
Ngunit bakit sa tuwing ako'y lumalapit

ika'y lumalayo?
Puso'y laging nasasaktan pag may

kasama kang iba

'Di ba nila alam, tayo'y nagsumpaan?
Na ako'y sa 'yo at ika'y akin lamang

Kahit ano'ng mangyari, pag-ibig

ko'y sa 'yo pa rin
Kahit ano pa ang sabihin nila'y ikaw pa rin
Ang mahal, maghihintay ako kahit kailan
Kahit na umabot pang ako'y nasa langit na

At kung di ka makita, makikiusap

ka'y bathala
Na ika'y hanapin at sabihin ipaalala sa iyo
Ang nakalimutang sumpaan
Na ako'y sa 'yo at ika'y akin lamang

Umasa kang maghihintay ako kahit kailan
Kahit na umabot pang ako'y nasa langit na

At kung di ka makita, makikiusap

ka'y bathala
Na ika'y hanapin at sabihin ipaalala sa iyo
Ang nakalimutang sumpaan
Na ako'y sa 'yo at ika'y akin lamang
