Today is such a fun day. After work I went straight home and took a nap. After that bothered my parents forcing them to go to the asian market with me and do some grocery shopping. I went around the market twice looking for the barbeque I bought few days ago for a good deal but I can’t find it. Then went home and cooked dinner for the fam! We had what you would normally eat for breakfast which are sinangag, longganisa, egg but with the exeption of crabs. It was also maybe the second or first time we all ate together. Sad huh? LOL not really. My parents are just busy that we sometimes eat at different times during the day. Eating together has a downside since I ate alot which I am trying to avoid but can’t help it since we were all busy laughing and just having a good time. Ofcourse did some chores around the house, its so tiring having to mop and sweep the floor but its all good because a clean house means a happy mom. haha Pretty much an ordinary day at Verdadero’s household. :)
Seriously? Never akong nainggit sa mga taong nasa paligid ko. Yung syempre di maiiwasan na madaming tao nakapalibot sayo na may kaya.. yung nabibili gusto nila at nakakapunta kung saan saan.. ngunit hindi inggit ang nararamdaman ko sa tuwing nakikita ko silang nakakakapunta sa mga iba’t ibang lugar.. hindi inggit ang nararamdaman ko sa tuwing may bago silang gadget or sasakyan sa buhay nila. Ako pa mismo ang unang natutuwa at inaappreciate ang mga mgagandang bagay sa buhay nila.
Nasabi kasi ito sa akin ng kaibigan namin. Napagisip isip ko at nasabi ko sa sarili ko na, “ni minsan hindi ako nainggit sa mga bagay na meron ang iba”. Ewan ko ba pero hindi talaga eh. Hindi ako yung “hay sana meron din ako nun.. sana nakadating din ako dun” more on “oh thats good atleast their enjoying it and deserves everything that happens to them”. Siguro nga hindi lahat parepareho.. Siguro nga baka masabi ng iba na “ang plastic mo naman”.. or “weh? seryoso ka? di totoo yan” pero ito ako eh.. hindi man katanggap tanggap eh hindi ko din naman pag pipilitan dahil may mga taong alam kung sino ako at sapat na yun para manitling nasa lupa ang aking mga paa.
Lord, just for this day, I want to be patient; just for today, I want to think pure thoughts; just for today, I don’t want to lose my temper; just for today, I want to be positive instead of negative. Just for today I want to trust you instead of worry.
Focus on God’s power and not your will power.
“God who began the good work with you will keep in helping you grow in His grace until His task within you is finally finished.”
Each one of us has their own stories to tell. We may know it or not but through our actions and attitudes we built a plot for anyone to listen to our stories. It can be the way we surpass life’s sufferings or how we our thankful to the blessings we recieve in an any given day. Whatever it may be, write a story that you can be proud of to tell anyone that comes in your life. A story of forgiveness, patience or strong heart, let it all be the main characters of the life you have chosen to live. In the end, we get to be known through the inspirations we leave behind and the way we live our lives.
Won’t your heart melt when you read those words in a letter coming from your friend? I came home and read a letter that was all praised not just to me but also to my Father in heaven. Recieving those kind of remarks made me just say that I have lived accordingly.
Isn’t it nice to be complimented once in a while by the people around you? Sure I do not long to be acknowledged or admired by anyone for I do not live to please other people. I live to give glory to the one that created me which is Christ Jesus. Honestly though it sure does feel good when you hear things that gives you even more courage to do what is right.
May we all continue to keep doing what is right in accordance to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ.
