Liebster Award!… no way!


Isn’t this another good reason to praise the Lord? I would like to thank StephenWhoElse for nominating me this award, it is an honor! I have just read some of his posts recently and I have learnt A LOT!- and I have just started. You can really relate to them and I find myself nodding every time, and the best part is, he includes God- ALWAYS. Its really inspiring. He actually gave me this award a few months ago or was that 2 months ago? Anyway, I wasn’t able to do it because I was so busy with… you know, things. >_< I just hope that there’s no time limit to this thing.

I’m accepting this award and I really want to do it because I want other people to notice my blog. I want God to use me and share His words not only vocally but also through writing and blogging. These awards are actually pretty cool, you get to share about yourself  ^_^ and it gives you this warm fuzzy feeling that you did something worth getting this award, that you have a purpose. So before I turn this into a full pledged speech I would like to thank Stephen again and… lets get on with the challenge!

My answers to the questions

Since Steven didn’t give us a question to answer, I’ve decided to answer the questions he was given to answer. Haha, confusing I know… or is it just me? Just so you know, some of the questions he answered are some of the questions I chose for Section 2. What can I say? I’m not that creative.

1) What are you most passionate about?

Since I am still a kid, I’m not really sure with what I am passionate about. But what I know for sure is that I love making the Lord proud. Hearing those two words “Well done” gives me assurance that I have done something that pleases the Lord, that’s more than enough.

2) What is your heart’s desire?

To grow SUPER-DUPER close to God, to SHARE the word of God, and to experience the TRUE worship where no one around you matters anymore and you just notice every single blessing you have received from God that you feel like you have touched a portion of heaven. THAT. When I type this, it just makes me want it more.

3) Who was the most influential person in your life?

Ever since I was young, I have always thought that my dad was the most inspiring, influential, and God-fearing person I have ever met. Yes, he has his ups and downs. But I’m always so amazed at how much God has changed my dad and he really showed/reflected it.

4) What are two items on your “bucket list”?

It was always (1.) Make new friends and (2.) Go to heaven. Of course, you’d have to do something to achieve that right? I think each goal you write on your bucket list have the same 2 most important process. Action and prayer.

5) How do you best handle heated/angry situations?

Ah, unfortunately I get these a lot. How do I handle it? Well, the ugliest part of being angry is pushing God away, and I tend to tell Him to wait for a moment and give me time- but what I’m supposed to be doing is giving Him my time. So, I write. I write my problem, why it occurred, how it happened, and what am I gonna do about it. Basically, I’m talking to God through writing.

6) What is your favorite scripture, and how has it helped you on your life’s journey?

There is a lot, but to be honest, I really don’t know. Instead, I’ll tell you my favorite. 1 Thessalonians 5:2  for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. It reminds me to be prepared and ready for the Lord will and is to come. It’s really really exciting, don’t you think? ^_^

7) What do you think are the three qualities to building and maintaining good friendships/relationships?

Trust, love, and kindnessBasically, the weight of your love for a person will relinquish fear and give you just enough to trust the him/her. And whats love without a helping hand? Be kind my friend.

8) What was your most memorable moment in your life?

My 13th birthday in the Philippines with my Grandma and family. 

9) What is your favorite book/author and why?

 I’d say Rick Warren, but I barely read his books- instead, I listen to him. Since I live in a Muslim country, I barely have any Christian books but I’d say that God is my favorite author! ❤ As for worldly books, I’d say Sophie Kinsella (’cause her books are hilarious and romantic) and Rick Riordan (c’ause I’m a fan of Percy Jackson and fantasy).

10)  If you could go anywhere in the world, no attention to cost, where would it be and why?

My first thought was Heaven since it didn’t mention “earth” but then “world” IS “earth” so that means I have to change my answer *pout*. Right now, I just want to go back home in the Philippines, other than that I really really want to go to Jerusalem. And if that dream is never fulfilled, I wouldn’t be too sure about that. I’d tell you more but I forgot the bible verse and I’m running out of time.

Liebster Nominations

 Finally! Whoo! That was- tiring and fun 😀 So here are some blogs that inspire me and I think that is so cool! I just hope that they would have time to accept this award. ^_^ I’ll only state a few since I am really lacking time and I can’t wait to finish this so… here it goes… Oh! BTW, not all of these blogs are christian.

That’s all for now! So I can’t stay any longer- busy busy. 😀 I just wish you a Merry Christmas (its still December anyway) and a HAPPY NEW YEAR! :3 Take care and God bless my Lovelies ❤

1) Her song is a dance, with a rythym and a beat.
She sways with the waves as the tiny fishes fleet.
Fluid is her movement, quite stunning they all say,
A Little lad even said that it could take your breath away.

2) I hide in the bushes, I dig on your backyard.
I turn into a ball when I am scared or is on guard.
I hiss when you come near, be careful I might bite!
I have quills that are sharp, beware, I’m not afraid to fight!

3) No this guy doesn’t squawk, nor does he even chirp.
He swims around with fins and his colors are superb.
He’s got this pretty hard beak, yeah he got a painful bite,
Don’t be deceived by his beauty, quite ironic alright.

Me and Shopping?… Nah.


11:08 May 24, 2013

I went to the mall with my mom and her friend to shop for… unfortunately clothes.

One thing I learned was that the shop “Splash”, sucks. The music. The clothes… Sooo not me.

Bershka, Forever 21, and New Look on the other hand are malls I would most definitely go to, if I had the choice to choose, well, of course you can choose, Mary! Obvious!

I never really go to the mall to shop for clothes unless mom tells me to. Soo, this is quite new to me. Besides the fact that I am a picky person, most of the clothes I like are expensive, BUT rare. My mom would buy them for me in a flash, mostly because she loves me, and also because it takes FOREVER for me to choose something that I like.

If you see me in the mall, I might be searching for books to buy, having a night out, OR forced to get some new clothes. Shopping is exhausting man! The soles of my feet are practically burning from excruciating pain! and you might say, “Oh Mary, your over exaggerating yourself” Nooooo. I am not.

It really huuurts man! Like literally. No kidding. Buuut I cant say it wasnt worth it. You see, God always has His wonderous little ways. One thing I love about Him.

At the end, I got some red velvet cupcakes (My favorite) and a delicious warm coffee (just how I like it). Ahh, my tummy was really satisfied. I got my new dress and I’m happy.

Now, I’m just sitting on this coffee shop with my family and their friends, typing this short diary up, and waiting ’till I get home for me to post this on my blog.

I’m feeling a little floaty right now, and what I mean by floaty?

Happy & Contented.

Sigh, God really knows how to make my day… I mean, evening, since its not morning anymore. Well, obviously.

Oh Mary, you never seem to amuse me.

Oh shucks, you flatter me, conscience.

Uggh, Im talking to myself again, people would think I’m crazy…

Well, I’m not exactly talking am I?

What they dont know wouldnt hurt them, would it?

Scoff, it will!

Uggh nevermind. Have a nice day… Night.

It was such and enjoyable moment for me. And I thank the Lord for giving me and my family an opportunity to go to this concert 🙂 We had lots of laughs. Especially when mom thought we were gonna be seen in the big screen because she saw the camera coming our way, except it wasn’t really a camera, but a stroller >.<

Their songs are very inspiring and lively. I love country music! My favorite one is “Somebody’s praying for me”

In the concert, Don Moen said “Somebody’s praying for you, and if you know who they are, call them or text them, and say ‘thank you for praying for me”

So… thank you, all of you, who has prayed for me. You might not know it, but I am also praying for you… God Bless everyone!

 

Go, Grow, and Glow (TLE song)


Chords:

C-G-D-A

Lyrics:

Go food, energy, this is what I wanna be, running all around town.
Rice, bread, a big fat head, if I don’t go, I’ll go to bed, so I’ll just continue this song…

Go, oh, oh, oh, don’t you know, cereal and pasta and toast is how to go…

Grow food, milk and meat, fish and egg and rotten cheese,
this is what I gotta eat, to…

Grow, oh, oh, oh, don’t you know, chicken, pork, and meat, is how to go…

and the last line…

Glow food, carrot, lemon, who wants to go to the middle east, Yemen
and show my skin to the world AND,

Glow, oh, oh, oh, don’t you know, watermelon, broccoli, -middle east Yemen-
is how to,

Go, Grow, Glow, I do know…

1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

PS.

I couldn’t write too much, cause I had to sleep and do a lot of home works >.< I might update this post though… God Bless!
