Behind Story of 12days of Christmas song!

I read and copy this from a friend and it really excite me knowing about this famous 12 days of christmas song! I think it's worth sharing this history! All under are from her;

"There is one Christmas Carol that has always baffled me. What in the world do leaping lords, French hens, swimming swans, and especially the partridge who won't come out of the pear tree have to do with Christmas?"

This week, I found out.
From 1558 until 1829, The Chruch of England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.

- The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.
- Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.
- Three French hens stood for Faith, Hope and Love.-
- The four calling birds were the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.
- The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament.
- The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of Creation.
- Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold Gifts of the Holy Spirit--Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contrition, Leadership, and Mercy.
- The eight maids a-milking were the eight Beatitudes.
- Nine ladies dancing were the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit--Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.
- The ten lords a-leaping were the Ten Commandments.
- The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.
- The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles' Creed.

Distance Between

When we talk to someone, the distance between you and the one you talk to is one factor on how much understanding you get from each other. When you are so far from the one talking, you will never understand at all though as you can see, he/she have said something but you can't get what it is. When you are a little bit nearer yet not so near , we can hear it but there's a tendency we heared it wrong or understood wrong. But when you are near to each other while talking , surely you will understand it right!

The same with our relationship with the Lord. We know he is saying something important, but when it's hard for us to understand, it means we are far from him. I've been experiencing it many times and now seems I did it again! Many confusions and questions that might have an answer already yet I didn't get it since I'm already far from Him. I am thankful though cause he keeps on reminding me and giving me awareness that says, "hey my child, watch your distance between you an me". So, you will be guided as much as possible! The secret is keep your distance right!

Have a great weekend!

Dream Big Dreams!

I have always this lines I've read once; " Hit to the moon so if you fall, you will land to the stars". Dreaming big dreams even the impossible has no cost at all. Only believe and go where your dreams leads you!
When I was still ayoung girl and even in my adolescence, Vatican City was so impossible for me to think that somehow my feet someday can walk there. Israel, Egypt, Paris and those places that has marked in history! But I believe, I was born a traveler, I knew even before that I could go as far as I want to go and that God had showed me through my night dreams about how great He is to let me see great and mighty things that I didn't know it can be possible.
And now the fulfillment! I already been in some of those places, and it keeps on amazes me everytime! And just last week, we visited the Vatican City! And it seems to me now that all my big dreams are just in my reach. With God that I believed in? nothing is impossible!

The Princess and the Porridge!

There was once a man who was so in love with the princess and even asked the king that he wants to marry his daughter. The King in his power test the man by putting him in prison within three days without food. After 3 days, the man was already so hungry and he was badly imagining and begging to the king to give him even a little food or something to eat. So the king ordered the princess to do a porridge and when it's done and still smoking, he let the man out and brought to the table with a warm captivating porridge in front of him and the princess sat across the man.

Because the man was so hungry, his attention was focus on the porridge, he even barely noticed the princess. And when the king asked; " What or who you want, the porridge or the princess. He answered, by choosing the porridge because he thought , he is dying and his stomach needs the food that time or else he'll die. He did not think that if he chose the princess, automatically he will also get the porridge because she owns and did that porridge. The king in frustration gave him the porridge and kick him out after.

We sometimes miss the most valuable thing in life by our wrong choices. And it is when we only think on how pitty we are in the moment, forgetting the reason why we are here in such situation. "DO NOT TRADE YOUR PRINCESS FROM A PORRIDGE!"

Real Taste!

Every time my husband bake a bread for us, I don't like to put many things on it like cheese, salad, sandwich spread like what my husband do usually to his bread, why because I don't want to take away the real taste of the bread mixing up the taste of those spread.

In the same way, there are things in life that is better to leave as it is simply the original than putting or adding things for flavors or enhancement..in the end, it will just complicate the real taste and the real one! Live simply, Be true!

Keep Us away from harm!

"Watch and pray for the days are evil"

News here and there, from television, newspaper, radio or internet , there are always bad news and catastrophe! That are general! But personally, I can feel and understand what the Bible advised to us people, to watch and pray for the days are evil.

Our family is experiencing life's crises nowadays, here and there. Many times, it really affects me so much that I can not hold my anger and feelings to somehow poured it out! But then, the evils are so fast. They are in the form of our friends sometimes, trying to judge and point out that what we are doing or saying is not good. Yes, they do not know the real situation thats why, and they are mixing our problems from their own problems..haha! but true friends can just shut their mouth up and lend their ears instead. No further questions, no comments. Thats what I need times like this.

But I know, all of these could happen to remind us, to watch and pray to let God keep us away from all harm and to trust only Him. This is my very prayer now. I've been already in many situation before and I can say from this moment on.. " there is no hopeless case in prayer"! This is the best way in helping me relax and still live happily and makes everyday beautiful inspite of all evilness around!

Dear Lord, Keep Us Away from Harm!In Jesus Name!

Web Conferencing, Anywhere, Anytime!

Technology nowadays makes everything so fast and possible. Almost everything we want and we need, we can already do it in more convenient ways. How? of course through all these internet or computer technology! Like here in my present place in Europe? I am so amazed how everything can be done in just sitting back and do some clicks.

In connection to this, there's more that can be done also nowadays by just sitting down with your laptops or phones in your hand. Have you tried Web conferencing wherein, we can share our thoughts and ideas anywhere and anytime? I have heard and saw on television and even on movies like a classroom with a teacher but no students there in physical but actually he have so many students present on that time. They're on the web, everyone are on their respective places somewhere but they interact and communicate with each other through the web. The same way with conferencing. You can share what you have in mind by being in this web group of people online!You can select different good kinds of Audio conferencing products from their suite.

I am really amazed how like these things can be very possible and even working out well nowadays! I thought, these things like Audio conference, were just an imagination, a fantacy but then its already a reality. Well, if you have good ideas to show off and to share, join the group now and spread your ideas all around the world. You need not a ticket to fly to different places, it can be done by just sitting down wherever you are! Meeting new friends and sharing thoughts to whatever race there maybe!I'm sure it would be fun, not only we can learn from each other but also we can make things happen in this way! Goodluck and have a nice time !

Serious Violation!

"A woman driver was driving in the middle of the city so calm and peaceful. She drives carefully and in perfect speed with her brand new car! But then suddenly a traffic police stop her for a serious violation! She wonder, what she did that violates the traffic rules while she drives good! The police man said, you should not drive a car without a lamp or with a lights off. Then she was shocked and realized she forgot to put her lights 'on' because she was amused by the different lights glittring and shining in the city! The police said; it doesn't mean you will not put your lights on because there are already so much lights around. Everyone and every car has to run with lights".

In the same way with our life. We are sometimes so busy attending the life of others. Amused or disturbed by their ways of living forgetting that 'we' ourselves, even how brand new and nice and perfect we can look, we have our own life or lights that suppose to be 'on' or work on! Have a blessed sunday everyone!

Making Things Happen!

Everyone has many good plans and dreams in life. Many want to have change and fix messes in their lives. But to make it happen is so hard and scary! Sometimes it takes time and courage to take the risk. Many things would play in our minds like what if it will not turn out good? What if I lost everything instead of gaining? What if I fail!

But in the other hand; how about thinking, what if I succeed? what if it turns out good and what if I can make my life back to normal if I will make things happen! I might be never the same but a will become a new better person!

I like the tag line that says; Plan your work, work your plan! Life is full of mystery. We don't know what can happen next but we were given a choice; To stay where you are and continue to live in insanity and trouble? Or to make a step, going forward, little by little, making things happen! It might be scary and hard or takes time, but all we need to do is start doing. It doesn't make sense when you are just full of plans, want something you might become somehow but afraid and so coward to face the challenges of life that in some area we were the one making it! Time is running out, its already time to work out our plan and face the fact! Everthing starts with a step, a simple step to walk a mile!

We can surely make things happen! All we need to do is a courage to take the first step! Have a great day everyone! MAKE THINGS HAPPEN, BLOW NEGATIVITY AWAY!

When people look inside my heart, I want to hear them say...
She's got her FATHER'S EYES, her father's eyes
Eyes full of compassion
Seeing every pain
Knowing what you're goin' through
And feel in it the same
She's got her father's eyes!
Oh, how these phrases speaks to me. This is also my prayers to have a compassionate eyes to see other people's need. Godbless everyone!

The black atache case revealed!

My husband's birthday gift for me was a very chic, heavy, black atache case which really made me feel like a real housewife! This is actually my long time wish to have! And I never expected it or even suspected it that my husband gave me this surprised!



Many wonders whats inside in it , why makes me a real housewife:) hehhe. They have many guesses like, a make up kit?, a jewelry box? ( wow, so big if it is) a keeper of important documents? Well, none of the above because its an utensils set and so chic and in good quality.



I think its a clever idea of a gift from the head of the family to his better half which he thinks the best housekeeper in their world:) I so love it personally. It's like I'm already in the next level of womanhood! Thank you darling!

Communication!

Many got problems on relationship because of lack of communication. Many also get connected and even living together now as family because of good communication inspite of distance and all. But many also get separated because of miscommunication.

There are many ways of communicating someone or anyone nowadays. Besides from talking as the most basic one either upfront or through telephones, or broadband, we also can communicate each other through writing and these special social networks like facebook, twitter are the most popular as way of communicating the world today:) but then sad but true, the tendency of miscommunication is so there.

One important rule of talking to someone that I like is " I talk you listen, you talk I listen", by this there should be a good communication that can happen. We were given one mouth and two ears so we will listen more and talk less. How important communication is? Very much that it rule the world, even our world today. So, be a good communicator- it doesn't mean for you to be good talker, instead a good listener and analyzing what the message tells would be appropriate.

Have a great day!

Childhood Frustrations!

Do you have frustations to become or to have when you were still a kid? And by any circumstances it wasn't become possible? And now that you became parents or old enough you want it to be applied to your kids or someone else in particular?

Then I am not alone:) I have so many childhood frustrations that I am now filling in through my children. I want them to have what I haven't before. From the simple stufftoys to the places I wanted to be and now I want them to experience those.

I have no regrets about it because I understand it so well. Instead those frustrations became one of my encourager or guide why I become what I am now! Now the question is; is it unfair to our kids applying to them what we want instead of letting them have the things they personally wants? Any disadvantagse and advantages? I just came to ponder upon about this because my kids are already growing and already shows what they wants. They already have decisions which woke me up that I want them to like what I like..hahah which is not good:( But in the other hand, the fact that they can have now and can be what they want it to be! That's a blessing!

In making decisions!

Every day, every hour, every minute we are facing decision making. Whether or not to go this way or that way, or to do this or that. There are basic decisions in our daily lives that we already used to it but there are big decision in life that we have to do that makes our lives.

Decision making can be regarded as the mental processes that every normal individual have. But what are the things you will consider in making decisions? We have so many things to consider that make it hard to decide. Everyone has their own way that works for them on the particular situations.
For me, I always turn to God every decision I have to make. As what the bible said; "In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths." You can never be wrong if only we are sensitive in His leading! Have a great day!

and I would never leave you...
During the times
When you see
only one sets of footprints,
it was then
that I carried you!"


Sounds familiar??? you got it! yes! these are taken from the famous "FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND" piece. Im so amaze on this simple story. Infact, there was once... along my life's journey, time when I got burdens so heavy, when my life was in the dark and miserable, when I experienced as if the world falls down on me, when it felt no one cares at all, everything was doomed and senseless! I was so down and all I saw was darkness!

Then out from nowhere.., came the song 'footprints in the sand'. Narration said; " My child.. my precious child..." as the narration continues, my closed mind opened up! my disturbed mind went arranged suddenly! It seemed my heart crumpled and I forgot where I was, I cried like a baby.., like a child sobbing on her father's shoulder, word for word from the song continued hitting me. Then I realized, I was on the public jeepney:) people/commuters looked at me, different reactions; some pitiful, some sarcastic, but I didnt cared anyway as far as I remember, I continued crying my burdens out! It was really great!That moment lightened up everything in me!

Yes! its true! we believe that theres always someone with us, besides us, and if its shown in a footprints, there should be two sets of footprints, one belongs to you and the other to that someone and it feels great!And we believe he'll walk with us all the way. But In times of troubles, when we needed them the most, and we'll see only one set of footprints, what will you feel??? Of course fears and disappointments because we will think we are alone, we'll think only our footprints remains... but then when we go back to the story... it actually states that its not our footprints that we saw...

"The Lord said... during your times of trials and sufferings... and you see only one sets of footprints, it was then... that I CARRIED YOU!"

Health help for families!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


When we were in Philippines with my family last year, I got an eye irritation right after two days from arrival which I thought or many said it was sore eyes because of the red effect on my eyes. But in some friend's perspective, it was just an eye irritation because of the travel and the dusty road we have been through. I became worried when in the next day my daughter got the same too. I was not aware about it but luckily my friend from US who also went home for Christmas lend us her secret. She handed me Walgreens original Eye Drops which she had it all the way from US. She said she used to bring medicines when traveling in cases like this.

The result was amazing. I  felt better right away from the first drop then just in two days it was gone. I haven't tried it until that time!

CC; hubby as a FATHER!

Hehe, my late entry..but I was making a wrong topic;) It was hubby as a brother which is next week's topic! Well, this week's topic is 'my husband as a father' . Oh, well, I can say how lucky my children to have him as their father .
If as Laikka describes us as..I am like a 'sun' that always shines over them, her Papa is the 'world' to her:) She's a Papa's girl because I know that she feel how her father love her. My husband is a loving father but also disciplining them in a right way. I once asked before why he bought such thing to Laikka so expensive and then I was shut by his answer; " I can use all my salary for my children;I " Uh, I can't forget that! hehe.

He's a happy one being a father. He has no regrets but so proud father! He is so cool in handling them. Even if he's tired from work but taking care of them is not a problem. I really have a luck having him as the father of my children! I can't ask for more!

Inevitable situations!

Have you experienced that you are in the situation you don't like but you cannot help but face? It just came without expecting it and worst you cannot get rid of it, well ..no longer.

It's quite depressing and discouraging but its not good to cry over spilled milk. All we have to do is face it and learned from it. So next time we will be far more better to watch out as to not land in situations that are inevitable. Regrets are not good to let them stay within us. We may have it but it can be released and move on:) Good day and Godbless!

CC: Hubby as a SON!

I am so proud about my husband being who he is to everyone! He's just amazing when it comes to relationship to people. Being a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, a citizen... I like how he dealt with anyone. This months topic in Couple's Corner is all about hubby. And this week will be "as a SON".

Oh, well, he's great! and I say his mother is so lucky and so proud to have him. And of course his father as well. Though his parent's live separate lives but both are in good relationship as well as him towards them. I can't call them broken family, instead they become one big family.

Couple's Corner
Being a son he so helpful and really kept the relationship close to his both parents as much as possible. What else could I say than being so proud about him. Inspite of circumstances HE chose to be a good son! And because he's a good son, he's a best father as well:) Happy CC!

Income and Expenses!

It has been said that handling budget wisely is not in the matter of how big your income is instead it is on how you spend it.

We are really trying to save these days since we have so much plan and only my husband is working since I'm on leave plus summer is coming. Everytime salary came, I noticed it don't make a difference in our saving whether its much or little. Why because psychologically, when we got little more for the month we tend to spend a little more also and during those month that he only got little, we survived and still saved the same anyway. Yes, because we also hold only on what we have.

So, to avoid drowning your budget, and headaches, stay and spend wisely. Don't spend more than what you get. And avoid borrowing too:)wink*

CC: Me as a sister/friend!

I'm the best sister because I'm the only sister they got! hahaha! I will no longer ask my hubby about this, he will surely agree what I'm going to say here:)
Like what I've said, I've a got a beautiful family, I can brag about that. We are all best friends. I'm the only sister they got, and small but I own their respect! We treat each other as buddies. I'm the kind of sister and yes I'm their big sister that is cool and respect them too. I'm a little boosy but just gaining and reminding them that I'm the older one...hehe. Even if I'm the only sister they got, I didn't experienced the 'over protection drama from brothers' effect. You know what I'm saying? like 'my' guys were afraid of them, specially we're from the province?:) No, I managed to show them that I can handle myself right. And it feels so good hearing them " Manang, knows what she's doing:)"
Well, I can say that I became their role model in finding the right woman for them. When my big little brother introduced his wife to us, he said; "she's a version of 'manang'(me) in attitude:) hehe not the beauty???? joke? And the second brother I remember, he's looking for a wife like me in some way:) hehe. Well, I think they got the right women for them because I really can see 'me' in their wives in some aspects specially their beauties..lol!
These are my sisters-in -law. They are apparently my little sisters I didn't have halv of my life.
Well, as friend, I tend to treat them as my sisters when they're already close maybe because I had no sisters?
