Modesty is POWER! || Advice for girls


I read this really cool Christian book about Modesty and let me tell you- I’ve learnt A LOT! At first, I was like, Pssh! I know about modesty, just wear proper clothes and VOILA! You’re modest! But what I didn’t know was that modesty wasn’t all about the clothes you wear, but also about the way you act. Especially around men…

Of course, most of us girls like attention. We want to be the one’s who “turn heads”. Me and my dad were walking around the mall one day and spotted two russian ladies wearing very tight and very short dresses that showed off their curves and flawless legs. I looked down at my flubbery-looking calves and then stared at the two women feeling slightly jealous, and I hate to admit this but- I want to be the one turning heads. I looked at my dad through the corner of my eyes, hoping he wasn’t staring at them too. Instead, he was watching mom with an amused twinkle in his eyes as she checked out the two women herself. I chuckled mentally, so mom’s feeling the same way I feel~ Jealousy. But then I look at my dad, the way he stares at mom with love filled in his eyes. Why do we need to grab everyone’s attention, when we only need to grab one. The man God chose for you to be with. And trust me when I say, our Father knows best!

Proverbs 5:18-20

May your fountain be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.

 A loving doe, a graceful deer—
may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be intoxicated with her love.

So, if you want to learn more about modesty, love, lust, etc. I recommend you to read this wonderful book.

The Girl in The Mirror- Mary Pacis

June 27 2013  [3:50 AM] UPDATE: July 6 2013 [12:00 PM]

The girl in the mirror, deems herself a disgrace,
Forming atomies of detrimental thoughts about her fate.

Wallowing in self pity, as the young lass lay in woe,
Fellow men think her lovely, they swear their hearts could overflow.

Yet she never doth believe, she deems that all are foolish lies,
The girl in the mirror doubts she has the need to surmise.

Affirming to herself a horrid woman is she,
Hiding in a place where no one could ever see.

Her beautiful face is as fair as the moon,
Her eyes, her soul would make all the lads swoon.

But filled in dejection, no forbearance and comfort,
In her pity she stayed, convinced there was nothing more to sort.

The past she ne’er let go, for it was just too close to bear,
Amort was she, locked in chains, when the key lay near her hair.

A crystal tear fell down her face, kneeling down she prays a-night,
‘Oh Lord, I feel that I’m a disgrace, forgive me if you might!’

The girl cried and cried with all her heart, the ground now flooded with tears,
The Lord’s heart melted at the cries of His child and washed away her fears.

Her beauty is a rose that catches men like fishing rods,
She gave into the fight and surrendered all to her mighty God.

Betimes the chains have fallen, one by one they hit the ground,
Bliss that once she thought was lost, that now, at last! is found.

He wiped away her tears as she lay peacefully in His arms,
Like the whisper of the wind, He said,

“You are my beautiful charm”

– Mary Pacis

Dedicated to: The Self- conscious and The Clueless.

 

This is a re-make of this poem (the former one is HERE, which is quite funny and short), and I am very happy I made a few changes- well additional changes. Special thanks to MenofOneAccord and to God for helping me and encouraging me to make a re-make of this poem (and also Shakespeare, who helped me with my vocabulary- I hope I used them right). So thank you… 🙂

I know I haven’t been blogging a lot, but I hope I will. I really did miss you guys and I’ve been falling out lately, and missing our ‘Song of the Week’ and ‘Bible Verse of the Week’. Don’t worry, I’ll try and squeeze in. Love you! and JESUS LOVES YOU TOO!

And if you’re that girl (in the poem), I want you to look at the mirror and see through the eyes of God. You are worth more than many sparrows, worth more than diamonds. Plus, diamonds don’t even shine. But you have the chance to shine… and it’s your choice.

Remember that God LOVES you.

Proverbs 31:30

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

What do girls talk about? / Love…


Woah! Hold your horses there guys! So, I have mixed two topics cause I’m one random girl, so read and go deep…

Well, girls are very random people, especially Filipino girls, if we run out of things to talk about it might get awkward or we might just brain storm about stuff.

What do we talk about?

It depends on our age, things we like, dislikes, etc.

I’m 13 years old, what me and my friends talk about are more about other peoples lives than our own, and no, we don’t talk about boys like how the girls are in movies, pfft!! But really, were not that obsessed! 😀 Just to put this together, Not all girls like pink, guys, and material things, I’m not ‘most girls’, I like talking about animals, friends, and stuff, I’m the type of girl that blurts whatever, but if its a secret, its a secret, the only thing is, if you talk about ‘it’ to me publicly, I have the tendency to ‘share’ it to other people…

Of course, girls talk about boys. Even if there’s a group of girls who doesn’t, they will go to a topic where they talk about how they hate guys so much or how come their not interested in them or what so ever.

When it comes to talking about love (depends on age), this is what you might hear:

Age: 6

I want my prince charming to come. [My reply: The best thing to do is ‘wait’ and ‘pray’]

Age: 10

I wonder what it’s like to fall in love… [My reply: Its a good feeling, but don’t know! I haven’t felt it yet!

Age: 13

I like him. [My reply: But your not in love! So don’t date him dufus!]

Age: 15

I’m in love! [My reply: Then wait for the right age and time to be with him, don’t rush]

Age: 18

I really love him. [My reply: If you love him and want to go further, wait ’till your’e married, he has to prove to you that he loves you back and will wait for the perfect time]

I know, I know, ‘Mary, your just 13, how do you know about love? Are you experienced?’ *High pitch mock

NO! Not experienced. I just love reading books… A lot. And i learn from those books and from the characters experience. I Also learn from my friends’ heartbreaks. *rolls eyes.

Anyways, what I’m typing right now is what girls usually talk about, not right now, right now (don’t be too literal). Okay, another thing is the change of topic, you see I was supposed to write about what girls talk about but end up writing about how I know love! Typical me 😀

Here’s one thing I gotta tell you guys: (Part of what girls talk about)

My friend (who is a Christian) just broke up with her boyfriend (who is also Christian and is 22 years old), she’s just 13… sigh… She was crying, but I don’t pity her, I’m disgusted. Yes she might love him, but at this age? And he’s 22! He has to be smarter than that! I won’t tell you her real name, but if she’s reading this right now, I hope your not mad girl… But why? Why did you just blindly let yourself lose like that? Now don’t you go on about the “I’m blinded by love” speech because that was totally not love! If he loves you, he’ll wait ’till your in a legal state! He might go to jail for crying out loud and that’s 9 years apart, he could even be your teacher! And I’m telling you, if you made up his age… *growl

Yes, I tend to over react at times. But that is no way a Christian should act, even the way I’m acting right now… But I’m just so disappointed with her… She knows better than that…

I’ve read many stories  about falling in love with people older than you (ex. Teacher/student love stories), but most people in those stories are already 17 or 16 not 13! Even if they are not legal yet, they are old enough to know what love is…

Here’s a little bible verse:

Don’t let the devil use your desire for a husband against you today. Remind yourself that you worship the one true GOD, not the feeling of love. 1 John 4:16

It reminds me, in our church’s 6th anniversary, a pastor was invited and he told us this story of one of his friend who left church to desperately find a boyfriend, but failed… she has gone 10 years of searching, but nothing. why? because she pushed GOD away… he is love, he is the only reason why we love today… Don’t let the devil fool you! Don’t be Distracted by love

That’s all… FOR NOW >:)

Types of Girls…


I and my observing skills have decided to show you earthlings the different types of girls you would defiantly want to be friends with and how to deal with them, the advantages and disadvantages, I have had a lot of friends in my long 13 years, and I am here to share what I have seen in them. [I do not own these pictures]

Warning: Everyone is unique in their own way, so not all of the things said here may be correct.

The Shy Type.

Describe Shy girls.

They are usually introverts who keeps things to themselves. They are sensitive and tend to exaggerate of how others think of them. But once they get out of their shell, you won’t believe what side they have kept hidden.

How to deal with them?

Start slow, don’t get too hyper and don’t stay too quiet, you obviously don’t want to tense the atmosphere. Get them to trust you and to open up to you. Let them out of their shell! If their still shy, don’t pry, give them some space, it would be nice for them to know you understand and your not there to stalk them to death!

Advantages…

They can understand how you feel and you can go to them when you have problems, they won’t pry, they’ll be a shoulder you can cry on without those nagging questions.

Disadvantages…

They are very gullible and sensitive. Think before you do/say something to them or things may go haywire.

The Hyper Type.

Describe Hyper girls.

To put it in a not Crazy fashioned way, they could also be called The Bubbly or Party Girl, they make friends easily, fun, out going, over-confident, and CRAZY! Barely serious and very helpful when it comes to social issues. Oooh and they also love challenges!

How to deal with them?

I personally have a lot of fun with girls like these, they have their ways to make me laugh, but there are times when they get over “hypie” and you get uncomfortable around them, this is where your calm friend comes to town, which we will come up to in a tick.

Advantages…

They make you laugh when your sad, and since their very hyper and social they could help you with other friend or social issues.

Disadvantages…

They tend to get too hyper and can make you feel uncomfortable around them.

The Calm Type.

Describe Calm girls.

Also called The Loyal or The Therapist, they are nice to talk to, they understand almost everything you say, and even if they don’t, they will take time to listen to you. You MUST have this kind of friend! Though you might not be the best of friends, they will be the first you would call when you need help.

How to deal with them?

They are very easy to make friends with and are kind and warm hearted. They won’t judge you too quickly and will come out with a warm smile on their face. They are good at hiding their feelings though, so you might have to dig in deeper. When their sad, they might seem calm at first, but will eventually burst when they feel like it. So its best to be a shoulder for a while, don’t pry, but get them to tell you how they feel, it will make them loosen up.

Advantage…

They have an extreme amount of patience, great listeners, and are apparently good at making others calm.

Disadvantage…

Theres actually nothing to complain about, besides their good acting skills.

The Nerdy Type.

Describe Nerdy girls.

Nerd, is not really the good way of naming them, so I either call them The Megamind or Geek (cause geek sounds cuter), anyways they (nerds) are very intelligent and focus on their studies like a lot. They are also the shy types. Most nerds though (in my experience) are anime freaks or so called “otaku”, Oh and I only call them nerd as a joke, when the tension is not thick… And nerds are actually fun to be with, they just keep things to themselves sometimes.

How to deal with their nerdiness?

Learn the nerd language! yup, the nerd language, you know, instead of saying “Do not cross this line” they say “Don’t go over this perimeter” or somewhere along those lines, sorry, not familiar. If you like anime’s, sci-fi movies, and reading books, then congratulations you have some things in common! nerds can get sensitive, most of them have horrible pasts and are un popular, but I don’t see whats wrong with being friends with one, their actually pretty cool, you know with all the big words and video games.

Advantages…

They are very helpful when it comes to school work. They will understand some of your problems and they are quite funny…

Disadvantages…

They tend to babble a lot when they get over confident around you like, “Hey I watched this sci-fi movie and it was totally awesome, it was like woah and blah blah blah (big word) blah blah blah” which is quite annoying.

The Independent type.

Describe Independent girls.

They are very mature and helpful in their own different way. They rarely ask for help and is concerned and cares about you. Sometimes I call them Big sister or Mom. 

How to deal with them?

Sometimes they rely on themselves too much that they don’t even know when to ask for help. Well don’t just stand there, help her, she obviously needs help, even if she refuses, you have to insist, everyone needs help, it just takes time for her to admit it.

Advantages…

They can and will help you with your homework, your social and physical, and emotional needs. They remind you about stuff and gives tips and advice like a mother and sister would.

Disadvantages…

They can get a bit bossy and cross the line at times with their “motherly” actions. But they are nice to have around especially if your hyper friend keeps nagging you around to go to a party you don’t want to go to.

————————–

These are some girl-friends you should totally have! And if you ever fight with a friend, you will know she is your best friend when you make up no matter how harsh the fight was.

Its also nice to have a Christian friend who is there to pray for you and to be with you when you are down. But not everyone is perfect.

Any who…  I hope you guys find some awesome friends out there! God Bless! ❤

School Talk :D


School, turned out fine, except from all those pressure and challenges, but all in all, it went well 🙂

And yes, I was able to find one of those ‘boy freaks’ (girls who are 100% obsessed with boys), damn that girl (who surprisingly is nice and can sing very well) even has a crush on her teacher, can’t blame her though, the teacher is good looking, but he’s still a teacher…
I find it kind of annoying, that they think their in love at such a young age and obsess over a guy who doesn’t really see them in the same way… yeah…

And of course I have spotted the weirdo, anime freak, awesome, crazy dudettes (Including me)… The one’s who will do anything crazy and weird and absolutely loves anime and k pop (Im not in the anime and k pop list but I am abnormally weird).

And of course we have the nice, kind, amusingly patient, and the you-can-talk-to-me-about-anything classmates, not really the one who I would be best friends with but you could get amazingly close and comfortable towards them, you could tell them all your problems and they can and will comfort you (Those are what you absolutely need in le list).

And yes, another ‘and’ we have the loud, gossip, full of themselves girls, fun to hang out with though can get pretty annoying and super loud (They are also part of the ‘boy freak’ clan)

We also have THE gang… The one’s who get in trouble every single now and then…

And last but not the least, the quiet and mysterious, the one who keeps things to themselves and only speaks when needed…

BUT of course those are only the ‘first judgement’, I don’t really judge people, but I like guessing what they would turn out to be and surprise myself with the reality (Hey that rhymes!).

Well thats all for “School talk” (New segment).
