When we take our time and delay before acting, that can be prudent and wise, but then that can also be plain laziness.  When we consider something over and over, that can be prudent and wise, but then that can also be indecisiveness.  When we hold our tongue when insulted, that can be prudent and wise, but then can also be cowardice in disguise.  The reason behind our actions, the state of our hearts when we decide, is the true indication of wisdom and prudence.

Who is the prudent man?  He is cautious, shows discretion, has discernment, and makes sound judgement.  He does not delay for the sake of delaying or think long because he cannot decide but he is tactful in his considerations, decides with discernment and considers not only the now but what his action or inaction can lead to.

Prudence cannot be without wisdom and vice versa.  In fact, in Proverbs 8:12 (NIV) Continue reading

Been A While

Sometimes you just want to tell someone what has been happening, or write it down and hopefully someone will be interested to read it.  But then again, nah!  I don’t want to bore you with my life story. 😛

I’ve discovered Easter, I still walk in valleys at times, and desert on other times, yet I know very well my God is with me, always with me.  And busy months followed Holy Week – Mission Sundays, weddings after weddings – but the most important event, I must say, would have to be the moment God told me that the hour has come and my salvation is nearer than thought of – this is in relation to the work I’m in for 12 years now.  Few years back, I prayed hard for a decision I am trying to make and God gave me the word – to wait for harvest time.  Just few months back, after being persecuted yet again in this job that I’m in, God gave me consoling words one after the other, day after day, capped off with the verse from Romans.  So now I am looking forward to God’s fulfillment of this promise. 🙂

And I ask, whoever will come to read this, to also pray for me and for the next step I will be needing to make – to entrust my future to God.  And if it is not too much to ask, kindly include us in your prayers so we can all make it to Krakow next year for the World Youth Day! 🙂  THANK YOU!

Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob, all the remnant of the people of Israel, you whom I have upheld since your birth, and have carried you since you were born.  Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you.  I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. (Isaiah 46:3-4)

Hey – Ya!

It’s been a while – writing.  I haven’t written much at all, and even read that much.  This week went by like a haze as I have to go through task after task at work and after work.  And to make things more challenging, I got a bad cold!  Yet, I praise and thank God I got through the week – accomplished and sane. 😛  I will go back to writing down thoughts and inspirations this week – MUST! 🙂

Towards the end of October, I spent a lovely weekend on a 3-day retreat with wonderful people to listen to the amazing and strong word of God.  I rested – literally and figuratively.  And it’s nice that it’s somewhere away from the metropolis where the air is fresh and a little cooler.  This is also the first time I joined this retreat so I was really excited and looking forward to it.  And as always, God never ever disappoints, not that it mattered to Him but you get the drift – I’m always in awe of what He does for me.  And to cap off that weekend, I got my October BDJ Box when I got back home!!! 😀  (to be posted hopefully soon!)

The following weekend is when I got the bad cold, partly out of fatigue at work (my paper works seem to pile up each day even when I’m addressing them double time!) and the change in weather.  There wasn’t much time for rest either as we went to the cemetery that weekend to remember the dead on the 1st of November.  Aside from that, I was having a hate hate Continue reading

Food Feast! (:

Sunday is family day for us.  And family day means – food.  We are bound not only by blood but by food! 😀

This Sunday, we went to this famous Hainanese chicken place my dad loves.  We’ve tried others but he will always say that this is still the best he’s had here – WEE NAM KEE.  It’s a well-known dining place in Singapore that was brought to the Philippines.

Before the food, I must mention this – I’m loving their wallpaper. ♥

Now, for the food. 😉 We’ve eaten at other Hainanese chicken restaurants but I can say Wee Nam Kee is the best so far. (:  They also offer other lovely dishes that will delight your taste buds and a twist to a dessert we all love! (see gallery below) 😉  I couldn’t say much, my tummy cannot turn them into words.  It’s one happy tummy that day.  😀
