“Eleven Hints for Life”
1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return.
But what is more painful is to love someone and never
find the courage to let that person know how you feel.
2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
never meant to be and you just have to let go.
3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a
porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.
4. It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose
it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been
missing until it arrives.
5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an
hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it
takes a lifetime to forget someone.
6. Don’t go for looks, they can deceive. Don’t go for wealth,
even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you
smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day
7. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go,
be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and
one chance to do all the things you want to do.
8. Always put yourself in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it
hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.
9. A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck
a life. A timely word may level stress. But a loving word may
heal and bless.
10. The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best
of everything they just make the most of everything that comes
along their way.
11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with
a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone
around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die,
you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.
- lulubog ka kung hindi ka kikilos
- habang tumatatagal kumukulubot ka.
Our earthly relationships are important to the Lord. God the Father ordained the institution of marriage and designed for us to live within families. Whether we’re talking about friendships, dating relationships, marriages, families, or dealings between brothers and sisters in Christ, the Bible has a great deal to say about our relationships with one another.
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. (NLT)
Song of Solomon 4:9
You have captivated my heart, my sister, my bride; you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace. (ESV)
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (NASB)
1 Corinthians 6:18
Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. (NLT)
1 Corinthians 15:33
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” (ESV)
2 Corinthians 6:14–15
Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? (NLT)

…Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters. (NLT)

Husband and Wife Relationships
Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” … So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.
Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. (ESV)
Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. (NLT)
…and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’ … (NKJV)
1 Corinthians 7:1–40
…Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control … Read entire text. (NKJV)
For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her … In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself … and let the wife see that she respects her husband. Read entire text. (ESV)
1 Peter 3:7
In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered. (NLT)

“Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you.” (NIV)
Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him. (NLT)
Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. (NLT)
When Jesus saw his mother standing there beside the disciple he loved, he said to her, “Dear woman, here is your son.” And he said to this disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from then on this disciple took her into his home. (NLT)

A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity. (NKJV)
There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother. (NLT)
Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy. (NLT)
The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense. Never abandon a friend—either yours or your father’s. When disaster strikes, you won’t have to ask your brother for assistance. It’s better to go to a neighbor than to a brother who lives far away. (NLT)

General Relationships and Brothers and Sisters in Christ
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. (NLT)
“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.” (ESV)
For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. (ESV)
“If another believer sins against you, go privately and point out the offense. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back. But if you are unsuccessful, take one or two others with you and go back again, so that everything you say may be confirmed by two or three witnesses. If the person still refuses to listen, take your case to the church. Then if he or she won’t accept the church’s decision, treat that person as a pagan or a corrupt tax collector.” (NLT)
1 Corinthians 6:1–7
When one of you has a dispute with another believer, how dare you file a lawsuit and ask a secular court to decide the matter instead of taking it to other believers! Don’t you realize that someday we believers will judge the world? And since you are going to judge the world, can’t you decide even these little things among yourselves? Don’t you realize that we will judge angels? So you should surely be able to resolve ordinary disputes in this life.
If you have legal disputes about such matters, why go to outside judges who are not respected by the church? I am saying this to shame you. Isn’t there anyone in all the church who is wise enough to decide these issues? But instead, one believer sues another—right in front of unbelievers! Even to have such lawsuits with one another is a defeat for you. Why not just accept the injustice and leave it at that? Why not let yourselves be cheated? (NLT)
For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. (ESV)
1 Timothy 5:1–3
Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters. Take care of any widow who has no one else to care for her. (NLT)
And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works … (NKJV)
1 John 3:1
See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him. (NLT)

Ang sakit isipin na yung matalik mong kaibigan noon eh nakikipag-compete na sayo ngayon. Gusto nilang mas mataas yung grades nila. Gusto nilang mas mapansin yung aura nila kaysa sayo. Gusto nilang lamang sila lagi sa lahat ng bagay. Nagiging competition na ang lahat .
Di ko alam kung bat ba umaabot sa puntong kakalimutan na nila ang friendship nyo just for them to get what they want. Pinapafeel nilang insecure nga sila sayo kahit wala namang dapat ika-insecure sayo.
Ganyan ba talaga yan? instead na maging happy sila sayo dahil sa achievements na nakamit mo, eh kinakamuhian ka na lang nila. Napaka-selfish ng reason. At minsan ang ending nyan eh GOODBYE FRIENDSHIP na.
Ganyanan na nga ba talaga?
Live high, live mighty, live righteously.
Ang sarap ng feeling na masaya ka na nga sa ginagawa mo, alam mo pang tama ito. Your heart and your mind is at peace kumbaga.
Hindi natin alam kong hanggang kailan tayo tatayo dito sa mundo. Hindi natin alam kong yung mga pinapangarap pa nating buhay e matutupad pa natin someday. Pero ito lang masasabi ko… live with God. :)
Don’t worry .. be happy :)
Dadating talaga yung araw na hopeless kana. Pero, andyan naman lagi yung taong nagmamahal sayo. Handa kang samahan at damayan :)
- May Patience -Sila yung relaxed version ng parents natin. Mas iniintindi nila tayo at ayaw nila tayong masaktan. Kahit ano pang kasalanan natin, kalma nila tayong kinakausap.
- Ang daming Words of Wisdom - Ang sarap pakinggan ng mga pangaral nila. They do treasure real life stories at mas madalas din nila tayong kwentohan ng mga stories na kapupulutan natin ng aral.
- Quality time - Most of the time kasi, puro trabaho nalang ang inaatupag ng mga parents natin kaya sina lola at lolo nalang yung nagbabantay satin sa bahay. Sinasamahan nila tayo at very supportive sila sa every activities na sinasalihan natin.
- Great Listeners - Handa silang makinig kahit mahina na ang kanilang pandinig. Sinisigurado nilang magiging okay ka pagtapos niyong mag-usap.
- Walang kapantay na pagmamahal - Di matatawaran ang pagmamahal na binibigay nila sa atin. Ang precious hugs nila na nagpapatigil satin sa pag-iyak at pagbigkas nila sa mga salitang “mahal ka namin apo”.
Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na may Lolo at Lola tayong walang ginawa kondi mahalin tayo sa mga nalalabing taon o araw nila dito sa mundo. Ang dami dami pang rason kung bakit mahal natin sila at ang dami dami ding rason kung bakit mahal nila tayo.
HAPPY GRANDPARENTS DAY SA LOLA AT LOLO MO :)
huwag natin sayangin ang mga oras na nandito pa sila sa tabi natin.
“Climbing the highest tower becomes less difficult when someone at the topgives you reason to hold on.”
September’s cloudy day lingered that early morning when I trudge towards the office. I was walking aimlessly for duty’s sake and I brought our family camera hoping that something was worth capturing that day. But it wasn’t photos that I took, it was a lesson instead.
The way was wet as I passed the market place. The people around, undisturbed with weather, were busy fixing their own day. Some were setting up their stalls while others were preoccupied with their crafts. I continued on and turned right leaving the buzzing place with the camera swinging against my stomach.
The boughs of the trees were gently swinging as the wind passed by while the birds were singing their hymns and playing in the midair when an image of a dandy guy walking care free ahead of me caught my attention. I got startled realizing that “It’s him!”. I immediately grabbed the camera swinging from my tummy and focused it on him but his image was vague in the LCD and no matter how I pressed the zoom, his image didn’t magnify on the screen. I really wanted to have a finer shot of him so I walked doubly fast, the fastest that I could. I was holding the camera intensely, hoping that I would have that perfect angle but I was still many meters away from him as he turned left and entered his place. Desperately, I loosened the portable thing from my hands and passed his place indifferently. As I turned towards my original path, my mind was twitting me and a line from my favourite rock song echoed in my mind:”I tried so hard and got so far but in the end it doesn’t even matter…” As I turned left, I looked up. The boughs then were still singing their hymns and playing in midair. I just realized how funny I was with that encounter. And it took me to make myself funny to understand that his picture is not meaningful to me if I got one because in the first place I don’t really even know him.
Even though I won’t remember everything about that day when time passes by, but for sure the lesson I learned that day will be permanent in my heart and that is only the people who played a real part of my life are worth to be captured in my memory and they are my family, friends, and those people who spend their lives without any hesitation.
Be not proud of race, face, place, or grace.
love love love
Love just came to me as a lie. Then lie becomes love.
Then we learned… that sometimes, inside the lie,
There hides a truth that is more passionate than the reality.
