Health Issues

Last month of 2012 and here I am suffering from being sick, this cough and flu is killing me and I’m getting fever-ish. This is the only time of the year that my immune system is very weak. Boohoo! Around Mid August, I told my husband that I feel so happy because I never got sick, that I am very healthy. But hey, what happened now?

To my dismay, I check Google and search on some tips to avoid this ailing clause.

Here are 8 simple ways to keep the bacteria and viruses at bay in your life:
#1). Wash your hands several times a day. Even if you think they are not dirty, they probably are bacteria is hard to see.
#2). Take a shower daily and wear clean clothes.
#3). Always drink plenty of water. This is an easy one, but a much neglected issue for many of us.
#4). Try not to over eat, this one is pretty self explanatory
#5). If you eat processed, fast foods everyday, take a vitamin supplement.
#6). Find an activity that you enjoy to keep you more active.
#7). Use mouth wash, it's an easy way to keep the bacteria down in your mouth.
#8). Get proper rest. If you are tired all the time you cannot make proper decisions.


Being healthy and fit i would say is the most fleeting thing that you can do for yourself aside from the fact the you are fit you will feel good about yourself as well.

Hope this help, stay healthy everyone! =))

There is always a light

December last year typhoon “Sendong” hits the Philippines and has lost many lives and many of them are in Mindanao.

Today, another Typhoon strikes the country and the saddest part is it’s even more extreme than Sendong. When calamities like this happened I am always at my lowest point because I am away from my family. Living away from them is the most hurting stir because I want them safe, always.. Mama and Papa are the only ones left at home and they do not have anybody that will company them, worse thing is my Dad is paralyzed. I could not imagine how difficult the situation is when worse thing has to come (GOD FORBID!)
We can never really tell if this kind of mishap will smack us down, and the best thing we can do is to be alert and vigilant. Listen to news, packed some important stuff you might need in case there is a need to evacuate (water, food, clothes, flashlights and the like). And lastly, PRAY – that is the most effective weapon we have.

Good thing because my family in Butuan City are okay, they are safe and sound just what I wanted to know. Keep safe everyone! We will all go through this together.


20 things I Want To Tell Engaged Women

1. Marriage is made up of two good forgivers. Because every marriage is made up of two sinners. (Romans 3:23)

2. At some point, you will have to learn that life isn’t all about you. (Philippians 2:3)

3. Don’t listen to women that tell you that passion fades…it doesn’t have to! (um…all of Song of Solomon)

4. Don’t give up. Love never fails. (1 Cor. 13)

5. He wants a kind wife, not a maid or another mother. Be nice. (Galatians 5:22-23)

6. Give your husband the gift of your respect.  He needs it more than you know. (Ephesians 5:33)

7. Be mindful of your expectations.

8. Honor the Lord above all things. Colossians 3: 17

9. Find your worth and security in the Lord, and don’t look to your husband to meet all of your needs.

10. Be very careful about reading romance novels, they set you up for an unrealistic view of romance.

11. Real romance is finding that one spot in the crook of his arm to snuggle into, that shared look over the dinner table when the kids are acting crazy, and the way he fixes the leaky sink when he is dog-tired after work.

12. Love is about relationship.  The more I love my husband, and seek a relationship with him, the less critical and duty-bound I become.  It is similar to my relationship with God.

13. Be thankful for the husband you have. Accept him as he is, not for what you want him to be.

14. Don’t compare!! Don’t buy into the game of comparing him with anyone else’s husband.

15. The Biblically “normal” marriage is filled with joy, connection, laughter, and peace.  It’s not free of hurt feelings and conflict, but they know how to process their pain with one another so that they live more often in a meadow than at the scene of a train wreck.  This is not the average marriage, but it normal – -because it is a visible display of Jesus’ relationship with His bride (Ephesians 5:22-33).

16. Your marriage is a testimony!

17. Pray for your marriage. Pray hard.

18. I’ve heard that is gets better with age.  I have to say in my short {13 year} experience that is so true.

19. Where there is God, there is always hope. Even for the most broken marriages. “With God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

20. Marriage is commitment and sacrifice. But it’s also the best, most wild ride you will ever have with your best friend.
