I am a warrior who face any challenge and fight any war. For now, wisdom tells me to just accept things and keep my composure. I realized that if I let KARMA take its course then the people who hurt me and have taken advantage of me should worry more. Life is a series of cause and effect. They may be happy now, but not for long. Let us see who gets to laugh last, and laugh hard.
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
A nice prayer that was forwarded to me and I am sharing to everyone. May the good Lord bless us all.
Dear Lord, I thank You for this day,
I thank You for my being able to see
and to hear this morning.
I’m blessed because You are
a forgiving God and
an understanding God.
You have done so much for me
and You keep on blessing me.
Forgive me this day for everything
I have done, said or thought
that was not pleasing to you.
I ask now for Your forgiveness.
Please keep me safe
from all danger and harm.
Help me to start this day
with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each and every day
to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.
Please broaden my mind
that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper
over things I have no control over.
And give me the best response
when I’m pushed beyond my limits.
I know that when I can’t pray,
You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be
a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak…
Keep me uplifted that I may have
words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those that are lost
and can’t find their way.
I pray for those that are misjudged
I pray for those who
don’t know You intimately.
I pray for those that don’t believe.
But I thank You that I believe
that God changes people and
God changes things.
I pray for all my sisters and brothers.
For each and every family member
in their households.
I pray for peace, love and joy
in their homes; that they are out of debt
and all their needs are met.
I pray that every eye that reads this
knows there is no problem, circumstance,
or situation greater than God.
Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.
I pray that these words be received
into the hearts of every eye that sees it
in Jesus’ name. Amen!
God I love you and I need you,
come into my heart, please.
In my dream I was doing the dragon dance along with everybody else when suddenly the music changed to tango music. Everyone had dancing partners, and I was alone with no one to dance with. To my surprise I saw Allan, my husband, dancing with somebody else. I felt so bad and shouted” I do not have a partner” which caught his attention and made him stay beside me all through the night.
I woke up still feeling bad. Just the thought of him being close to someone else makes me green with envy and jealousy. I do not usually envy others for what they have but I cannot let them take what is mine. There are things that we can share and there are things that we just have to keep for ourselves.
I am a warrior and I will fight for what is rightfully mine. I will not easily give up on anything without a fight specially when my family and my dignity are at stake. The peaceful lamb becomes an angered lion when agitated and believe me you would not like me when I’m mad.
Have you ever asked your parents why they gave you your name? Were you named after a saint or your mom’s favorite celebrity? Is your name a combination of your parent’s names?
Being a mother of 3 children, I have used name dictionaries, so that my children will not only have nice sounding names but names with good meanings. I thought that names with positive meanings will somehow reflect on the personalities of my children. My first born was named Xavier Austin. Apart from being names of saints, Xavier stands for being bright and Austin which is a derivative of Augustine means exalted. Truly indeed, he is a very bright boy who excels in Mathematics and Science. Natalia Angelique, was named such because my second name is Angelica. She is the one who resembles me the most. She is really an angel with regards to her attitude and is my most obedient and my nicest child. Lauren Annika, my youngest, was conceived after my mom won in the elections and so Annika was chosen to be a derivative of Anna, my mom’s nickname. Her first name became Lauren for laurel, which is symbolic for victory. She is very gracious and poised which adhere to her name meaning.
I do not know if it is just a coincidence, but two of the greatest disappointments of my life have been caused by two different people with the same name. Could it be because their name meanings have influenced their character and personality or could it be that I am a magnet for people like them? My past experiences have taught me life’s lessons and one of them is not trusting and staying away from people with that name.
It is just an observation and it is one advice I can tell the future moms. Be careful with what you name your children because you are what your name is.
