Field Demo experience

Thank You Lord sa Field Demo. 🙂

Salamat po sa grace niyo sa buong paghahanda namin, sa lakas at energy na binigay niyo sa walang katapusan naming practice, sa katapangan na binigay niyo nung first time kong contact-in ang parents hehe, sa mga taong inilapit niyo sa akin para makatulong sa paghahanap ko ng mananahi at tela para sa costume ng mga bata, at sa kasiyahang naidulot ng mismong pagsayaw nila ng Mazurka Boholana.

Grabe. Life-changing. Sabay ganun e no? Hehe. Pero honestly, Lord, ngayong field demo ko po pinakanaranasan ang pagiging adviser ko. Oo, nakakapagod mag-asikaso ng costumes, mag-oversee ng practice, mag-passify ng mga agitated na bata dahil sa kaka-practice, kumausap ng mga demotivated sumayaw, at magpangiti ng mga batang pagod at kinakabahan HAHA. Pero napagod man ako physically, ang gaan-gaan naman ng pakiramdam ko lalo pag nakikita kong unti-unti nang naayos yung sayaw namin, nagiging kalmado na yung mga kaninang iritable, at sumasayaw na rin yung mga nung una e ayaw talagang sumali. Nakakangiti na sila at nagiging confident. Nakakatuwa. Ang sarap maging titser. Ang sarap maging adviser. ❤

Maraming salamat po, Panginoon. Salamat po ng maraming-marami sa privilege na maging adviser ng Grade 6-Industry. 🙂 Salamat po sa lahaaaat ng natutunan at naranasan ko dahil sa Field Demo na ito. 🙂

Salamat din po na naging 1st runner-up kami. Salamat po sa 6-Industry boys and girls na nagbigay ng oras at effort at lahat ng meron sila para maging maayos ang sayaw namin. Salamat po sa parents na pinayagan silang mag-practice nung Thursday kahit na walang pasok nun. Salamat po kay Irish na tumulong sa aming matapos ang sayaw. Salamat po sa Rondalla na sumama sa amin sa pagppractice. Salamat din po sa coteachers ko na tumulong sa pagmmake-up sa mga bata, lalo’t wala talaga akong alam dun. Hehe.

Salamat po sa experience na ito na naging dahilan para maging mas close kami ng mga estudyante ko. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na makitang masaya sila sa mga ginagawa nila at talagang napapahalagahan nila ang pagkakaibigan nila. Nakakatuwa rin na naging bahagi na talaga ng kahit anong ginagawa namin ang pananalangin. Yehey! Nakakataba talaga ng puso. Lalo na kapag naaalala ko yung mga ngiti nila nung tinawag na yung section namin. Alam kong binigay nila ang best nila, ako rin, nabigay ko ang best ko. At lahat po ng ito ay para sa inyo at dahil sa inyo, Panginoon. Sa Diyos ang lahat ng papuri!

Salamat po sa lahat-lahat. Maraming salamat po, Panginoong Jesus. Amen. Amen. 🙂

Salamat Panginoon

Ikaw ay mabuti bawat sandali

Sa habang buhay ay mananatili

Hindi mapapawi o maikukubli

Maging sa dilim ng gabi

Sandigang matibay ang Iyong pangako

Lakas at pag-asa ng aking puso

Hindi na mabilang pagkakataon

Patunay ng katapatan Mo

salamat 2015

Sa dalamhati at sa kabiguan

Sa pagluha ng pusong nasugatan

Sa pagsubok na Iyong pinahihintulutan

Salamat Panginoon

Sa katugunan sa aking dalangin

Sa kalakasang sa’Yo nanggagaling

Sa pagtuturo at pagtutuwid Mo sa akin

Salamat Panginoon

Ikaw ay mabuti

Ikaw ay tapat

Sa’Yo ang papuri

At pasasalamat

Salamat Panginoon

Unconditional grace

Oh, thank You for Your grace, God.

I don’t deserve this.

I know I don’t deserve this.

But still thank You dear Jesus

Thank You for Your love

Which I do not have to earn.

(coz I really can’t earn it)

Thanks for gracious promises

Thanks for keeping them

Even at times I fail You.

Your unconditional gift

Is free, always free.

Give me faith to receive it.

Indeed, I don’t deserve all

Your love and Your grace.

Oh, thanks for loving me still.

Thank You, God. Thank You.

Amen.


Gracious God, give me the faith to receive Your promised gift of love, and free me from the belief that I have to earn that love. Amen.

Can we give thanks without having a grateful heart?

Empty words. Those are words we need not hear nor say because they mean nothing. That’s how it is when we say thanks without being grateful.

We can’t just say we are thankful, we got to live it out. When we say we thank God for giving us a new day, we should spend the day doing what we are supposed to do and not just let the hours pass by till the sun sets again. When we say we thank God for our families, we should spend time with them, listen to their concerns, and think of ways to express our love and care for them. When we thank God for our successes, we should give Him all the praises and glory and not take it as our own. We know we could have not done it without God so let’s thank Him by telling that truth to others. If we are indeed thankful that He gave us life through Jesus Christ, we should live for Him all the days of our life

When we give thanks it should be from the heart – from a grateful heart. Don’t ever try saying “thank you” with your eyes rolling. Giving thanks can’t be done while being grumpy.

I’m on a 5-day vacation now for our family thanksgiving and I feel like I did it wrong yesterday. I am sorry, Lord. Oh well, I got four more days to grow and learn more about giving thanks, so yeah.

Create in me a grateful heart, O God. Let me live my life thanking You for everything. And oh, thanks for this bird-chirping musical morning. Amen.

Can’t believe iiyak ako. Bigla na lang nag-ring yung bell nung sinabi niyang, “Ganun talaga Jas. Minsan kailangan mo ring maiwan.”

Minsan? Excuse me lang. Lagi niyo na akong iniiwan. For the past days, iba-iba kasabay kong maglunch. Pano naging minsan yun? Lagi. Sanay na yata kayong wala ako!

Big deal pala sakin yun. Akala ko kebs lang. *wink!* Umagos luha ko pero di ko pinigil kahit nasa gitna kami ng Starmall. Wala e. Kailangan kong mag-inarte.

Ang drama. HAHA True friend ko nga sila, kasi keri kong magdrama sa kanila at maglabas ng tampo kung nagtatampo man! Hahahayey!

ThanksLabyuAll

What makes a girl beautiful

Would you rather be a girl who is beautiful but not intelligent or a girl who is intelligent but not beautiful? (For the boys, would you rather be with a girl who is beautiful but not intelligent or with a girl who is intelligent but not beautiful?)

Woah, admit it. It’s a tough question. Not that we can’t really have it both, but what if we would be asked to choose just one – be beautiful or be intelligent? To be honest, I can’t answer it now. Thankfully, the Bible says that I am wonderfully and fearfully made, and that qualifies me as a beautiful and intelligent girl.. 😉

Hahaha. Yeah, I do believe that I’m beautiful because God made me to be, and my mother often affirms it. But as I grew up, I get to ask myself, what is it really that makes a girl beautiful?

A beauty queen-turned-TV show host, after interviewing former beauty queens, concluded three ways that make a girl beautiful:

  1. She is confident. She knows how to present herself in front of other people.
  2. She knows herself very well. She works on her strengths and weaknesses.
  3. She pursues what she loves to do. She spends time on the things that she is most passionate about.

I shared this to a guy friend and he agreed. He even said that I am indeed beautiful and I’m starting to believe it even more now HAHA. We affirmed that it’s not the physical appearance that makes a person attractive or the person’s look that would make you want to spend time with him or her, but it is the person’s attitude and outlook in life.

My friends know the qualities I look for in a man since my schooling years and I think it hasn’t change till now. I would love an intelligent partner. A man’s intellect makes him appear more handsome and gentleman in my eyes. I wonder, do men think of intelligent women that way?

There came a time when I thought I might be too idealistic to hope for a man with a great mind because of my friends’ comments. They say that my standards are unrealistic and so I considered leveling them down. Some even say that I tend to intimidate guys because I have a smart aura.

I almost believe that exposing my great mind (consciously and unconsciously) might give me a nerdy look and may cause a guy to back off or I might appear superior and then cause a guy to lose heart. But reading this article on how a woman’s mind can be sexier than her appearance, reaffirmed me that it’s okay to be smart. Here are some ways mentioned that I feel is true for me and made me feel more beautiful:

  • She remembers what others tell her and genuinely listens.
  • She’s interested in the world around her and actively engages herself in learning about it.
  • She can create conversation about any subject and clearly enjoys doing so.
  • She’s eager to learn about different facets of knowledge.
  • She’s interested in other careers and concepts that she doesn’t know much about.
  • She loves to dig deeper. She loves to learn more. She loves to question.

I somehow feel like the writer knows me and is describing me as he wrote the article. Haha, thanks indeed for writing these down! And of course, thanks to God, who knows me more intimately, for giving me this mind and for making me more beautiful and intelligent each day. Yey!
