Waiting for Linsanity Version 2.0

Im a lin fan. Im so linlove and Im bored.  Why does time seems to drag in the basketball world.
There's still the asian tour and free agency and a lot more going on. Its still the finals season and its just boring without Lin in the limelight. Waited for linsanity 2.0 to happen but it didnt. Byron was a coach who made all he can to stop or prevent linsanity from happening in LA. He made a good job making it stressful for Lin and ending a very tiring season  for Lin. Got to wait a little more longer,  wait for the finals to finish and then free agency and I hope next season is for Lin, just for Lin. Im just one of the fans rooting for Lin and will be there to support him all the way. After the finals then free agency, I dream of a Lin-D Antoni reunion and a team that will let him play his type of game. Go Lin.
Hoping for Linsanity 2.0

Because Im Choleric, Its not an excuse

          If you are a customer like me and you look like this like me, surely the customers will feel scared. Maybe you would have second thoughts in approaching or  giving your concerns. Hmmm I have received side comments about the way I look, stern face, heavy face, not smiling. Well, it hurts and its the truth and often time I retaliate, I rebel and i justify myself. Just like what happened this morning, the lady was looking for the sweet and kind customer beside me. And when she left, I heard them conversing with the guard and I accidentally heard the word "bug-at ug nawong" which means heavy face or stern face not friendly face. I got a little defensive about it. And realized that I should have a godly response to this kind of situation.

        I know I should take it on the lighter side and use the criticism as positively as I can, for change for the better, for me to improve. My temperament is never an excuse for me to justify my short comings. I know its a personal matter but I should apply all that I have learned, and a question popped and I asked myself is Christlikeness reflected in my actions and how I deal with people? Have I become a blessing?  I know I should reflect God's love and mercy to others.  I got guilty about it,  I know I should have been kinder and should have been its a challenge for me to improve. I have to smile because a customer service should be helpful, should be friendly and should be approachable with a light face not a heavy face.

How to look approachable:
1. Smile - though  have tantrums I should serve with a smile.
2. Be patient - Im impatient and I know to be an effective servant I should listen and take time to wait for the subscribers, not hurry but have quality time with them.
3. Smile - I have to remind myself as constantly as I can coz I have the tendency to have that tiger look which could be scarry to look at.
4. Be accommodating -   dont make subs feel they are not welcome
5. Smile
6. Pray
7. Begin the day with God's word.
8. Pray always.

Trust His Heart

Trust His Heart

All things work for our good

Though sometimes we don't
See how they could
Struggles that break our hearts in two
Sometimes blind us to the truth
Our Father knows what's best for us
His ways are not our own
     So when your pathway grows dim
            And you just don't
         Remember your never alone


God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don't understand
When don't see his plan
When you can't trace his hand
Trust His Heart

He sees the master plan
He holds the future in his hand,
So don't live as those who have no hope,
ALL our hope is found in him.
We see the present clearly
He sees the first and last
And like a tapestry He's weaving you and me,
To someday be just like him


He alone is faithful and true
He alone knows what is best for you


When you can't trace his hand
When you don't see his plan
When you don't understand
Trust His Heart

My Song for the month, Introduced by our bible study leader. Its a song that touches the heart and comforts us. Its a song that I will be singing to remind myself of how I am loved by God. All His plans for me, all the hope that I can only find in Him. He knows whats best for me, even if at times I grope in the dark and His light is the only light I see, a glimmer of hope, as intricate as a tapestry He wove me and as complex as the the puzzle He has a arranged everything for me. Though at times I may not fully comprehend it, or at times I seem not to understand I just have to trust His heart. Not mine, not others but His.

Change for the better

If a picture paints a thousand words......
I hope there could be a painting that could somehow describe what Im feeling right now. I feel hopeless, I feel annoyed, bitter and angry. But I have to look ok and pretend everything is awesome. I want to cry, but I wont. I refuse to. I dont want to. Then, if it would have been a painting, what would it look. It would look terrible to look at with those terrible emotions. Im a pych major graduate and I cant apply those theories to myself. Tsk tsk tsk

No matter how I try, no matter how I pray, things are just beyond me. Its beyond my control, no matter how much effort I exert on getting on my knees and beg God. Its all up to Him. But more often may be im just creating that impression on people, and I end up getting hurt and getting nasty side comments in the end.  But, God is in control, I believe He will complete what He has started, the answers to my prayers may not be given today, it may not always be a yes, a no and wait. I know I will have to embrace that with a hopefull heart. He is a God who will always true to His promised, I will wait on Him, patiently. Change for the better. I hope I also change for the better, not just expect others to be so, but for that change to start in me.

Ways to cope such emotion:
1. Say all you want to say to that person.
2. Then, if that person answer, defend yourself.
3. If the person defends, then answer back.
4. If that person tell you to shut up, then shut up. Just blog.
5. Let it all out, blog it, express it.
6. Just pound the keyboard as hard as you can with words.
7. Take a deep breath.
8. Smile.
9. Pray.
10. Pray.
11. Memorize bible verses
12. Claim God's promises.
13. ACCEPT. You cant please yourself and you cant please everyone and everyone cant please you.

Salvation Poem song Lyrics

I taught this salvation to kids on sunday school last sunday and was so amazed with how the children learned the song so fast. It was just the second sunday that I taught them through the video with lyrics, even the small kids that does not know how to read was able to memorize the song by repetition. To God be the glory! Here's the song.

Salvation Song lyrics

Hesus sa krus ikay namatay
Nabuhay muli para mundoy iligtas
Kasalanan ko ay patawarin Mo
Maging panginoon kaibigan ko

Tulugan mong magsimula muli buhay koy alay Iyo
Tulugan mong magsimula muli buhay koy alay Iyo

Hesus sa krus ikay namatay
Nabuhay muli para mundoy iligtas
Kasalanan ko ay patawarin Mo
Maging panginoon kaibigan ko

Tulugan mong magsimula muli buhay koy alay Iyo
Tulugan mong magsimula muli buhay koy alay Iyo
Alay sa Iyo

Here's the English Version

Jesus you die upon the cross
And rose again to save the lost
Forgive me now of all my sin
Come be my savior, lord and friend

Change my life and make it new]
And help me lord to live for you]2
