Thanksgiving – Today and Everyday!


Families and friends in the United States gather on the fourth Thursday of November to commemorate an old tradition which traces back to the early European settlers. History tells us that in 1863, the pilgrims and Native Americans came together for a happy feast to celebrate the harvest, forge new friendships, and anticipate new victories. A few hundred years later, this event became a legislated holiday called Thanksgiving Day.

To my friends in America (and anywhere else in the world), here is one song that we can sing in gratitude to God. Everyday can be a thanksgiving day as we recognize His presence in our lives. He is the Ultimate Source of blessings and He deserves all our praises. With Him, we can truly have a blessed Thanksgiving Day!

Artist: Don Moen

I come before you today
And there’s just one thing that I want to say
Thank you, Lord
Thank you, Lord
For all You’ve given to me
For all the blessings that I cannot see
Thank You, Lord
Thank You, Lord

With a grateful heart
With a song of praise
With an outstretched arm
I will bless Your name
Thank You, Lord

I just want to thank You, Lord
Thank you, Lord
I just want to thank You, Lord
Thank You, Lord

For all you’ve done in my life
You took my darkness and gave me your light
Thank you, Lord
Thank you, Lord
You took my sin and my shame
You took my sickness and healed all my pain
Thank you, Lord
Thank you, Lord

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I have worked with the Centerpoint Band a lot of times. They willingly shared their talents as a support to our ministry and the community.

I have discovered their quirks and twists yet they remain adorable.

They have their own share of battles and victories but they remain steadfast in their faith. I am certain that greater things are yet to come to this band as they continue to advance in the days of God’s presence.

I Need You to Survive


I came across a song that aptly captures the essence of fellowship. This David Frasier composition entitled “I Need You to Survive” is an expression of our commitment to the people around us. This Sunday, we are singing it in church as we strengthen our relationship with another. I am also singing it for you, my readers.

I Need You To Survive

I need you, you need me.
We’re all a part of God’s body.
Stand with me, agree with me.
We’re all a part of God’s body.

It is his will, that every need be supplied.
You are important to me, I need you to survive.
You are important to me, I need you to survive.

I pray for you, You pray for me.
I love you, I need you to survive.
I won’t harm you with words from my mouth.
I love you, I need you to survive.

In the Arms of His Love


Today, we can work with optimum strength without being exhausted. The tasks and responsibilities may get quite complex and convoluted but we can take courage and comfort in the presence of our Lord and Savior. In His presence, fears will not be cultivated, worries will not be entertained. With Him, we can go “placidly amid the noise and haste” and experience serenity in the midst of troubles.

While I’m Waiting


I thought I already have Jose Luis and Isabel in my womb but I was wrong. My menstruation came and I am in pain. For now, it is not just the physical dimension that makes me tired but it is the intense longing for the my twins that leaves me exhausted.

Father, there are times when I could not understand why those who are not planning to have babies end up having babies. Some babies even end up killed through senseless abortions. My heart breaks whenever I hear another case of teenage pregnancy. My soul bleeds whenever I hear babies are unwanted.

In the midst of my deep longings and mounting anxieties,  I choose to be still. Continue reading
