Then Sings My Soul 2

Here I come again, my favorite time for the weekend meme. This is my second post and am excited to post again, lol! As what I had shared last time I love music, the way it is. It's been a part of me. When I was starting to train the choir in our church, my hubby was there and he also learned to love it and be a part of the church choir. I was also given a chance to train different churches in our place, in the schools (for high students) they just sung once a month, so it's not so hectic for me. Other churches only for special occassions.

I love it. I enjoyed doing it although it's quite tiring sometimes because I was teaching the whole day in one of the schools in Bacolod, Phil. but when I started to train the choir, I'm excited and i felt strengthened. As what the saying goes, "Singing gives strength to our soul and refreshed us". It's really true to me. I became alive and enthusiastic with energy after working the whole day and started practicing the songs in the evening. Wow, it really amazed me.

Here's another song that I like:

O Lord my God when I in awesome wonder,

Consider all the works thy hands have made

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to thee

How Great thou art, how great thou art

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to thee

How great thou art, how great thou art

I love hymns ever since. For me, it's great and powerful.

Then Sings My Soul # 1

Music has been a part of my life. When I saw this meme I immediately checked and joined. I also love this hymn "Then Sings My Soul" (How Great Thou Art). When I was a kid, I learned to sing.

I have a story to tell: I'm not sure if you will believe this. When I was a baby, according to my Nanay (mother) our neighbors would wake up early morning because I was crying at the top of my voice, and for them it's a siren. And they said, this child will become a singer someday. It was prophetic in the sense that it really happened. When one of our neighbors saw me when I was in teenage years, she ask me if I can sing, then I said yes, why? Then she told me about it, the same thing my family was telling me about what had happened when I was a baby.

When I was 10 years old, I learned to sing in a DVBS (Daily Vacation Bible School). Why? Because I was listening to my classmates while our teacher was training both of them to sing. I was not chosen at first because I'm a shy type of person when I was young. I learned while I was listening to their practice. Our teacher got bored already of the practice because she was repeating it again and again. Then I started to help the two girls in their practice. After few minutes I can sing better than my classmate. Then I was chosen to sing in duet with the other girl.

High School came, and I excell in my studies but I still continue to sing and my classmates encouraged me to join some singing contests and many times I won (yeheyyyy). Then my talent in singing was developed gradually.

Then came another opportunity for me to excell in my singing ability when I decided to study in a Bible School. I have learned the basic music, all the things that I need to learn, mostly I have learned it from there. I was able to train churches in their choir as young as 16. After studying I worked in a church but decided to study in a Bachelor's Degree due to my Nanay's desire that I will be a teacher someday like her.

Then I took up Bachelor's Degree in Education but still my heart's desire to be a musician keeps burning in my heart. So I applied for an auditon and was chosen as one of the Glee Club members and a known club in the campus. I also joined another christian group who loved to sing for any occasion like Evangelistic Crusade and the like. I was exposed in that area, that's why when I finished my degree, instead of applying as an English teacher, the school wanted me to teach Music.

I was also given a chance to train different groups and churches in our area. And the Lord used me to be the pianist in our church since most of our pianists move to another place. I don't have any certificate for piano lessons but miraculously God proves that He can use those who have a willing heart and desire to be used for His glory. I have nothing to loose because God is on my side and He blessed me a lot of skills...

There are songs that inspire me a lot but I will just share one at this time. I'm sorry it's an old song and I'm not sure if it's available in youtube. Anyway, I will just share the lyrics: Praying that you will be blessed.

O Rejoice in the LORD

God never moves without purpose or plan

When trying His servant and molding a man

Give thanks to the Lord though your testing seems long

In darkness He giveth a song.

O rejoice in the Lord He makes no mistakes

He knoweth the end of each path that I take

For when I am tried and purified

I shall come forth as gold.

I could not see through the shadows ahead

So I look at the cross of my Saviour instead

I bow to the will of my Master that day

Then peace came and fears fled away.

I believe more interesting posts will be shown with Amy at Signs, Miracles and Wonders. Please visit and be blessed by the wonders of the songs.


We Bid Goodbye

We bid goodbye to our borrowed car today. The owner who is our close friend just came this morning with his friends and got the car. Huh huh huh! Felt sad a bit but excited of what God is going to do to provide for another one. Sometimes it happens, people or things just come and go but the Lord will just keep us alive and keep going - HE had been blessing us so much in so many ways. And we always thank our God for that.
We understand, our friend also needs his car and we have to let go and let God ........provide. For all times, God is good and faithful and He never leaves nor forsakes us. For so long, since we knew Him as our God He never fails. Even then when we were in our mother's womb, He knows what will happen to us because He cares and loves mankind. He loves all of us whoever we are, and whatever we do. He knows what lies ahead, and He knows our future! That's how amazing our God is! Sorry I'm emotional today! Hehe! He knows our saddest moments and He lifts us up because HE CARES!

Thank You Blogger Friends

Having friends are really a treasure to behold. I had been blogging for more than 3 months now and I've found a lot of friends already. Each one has its own unique template and different creativity. I also learned from them and their style of writing that attracts people. It's really true that "No man is an Island." We survive because of people behind us. And I would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your comments and encouraging messages. I truly treasure it in my heart. Your support and visit really means a lot to me as a newbie in this field. Here are some thoughts to ponder:

Sometimes we have to learn to accept friendship.
And learn to be a friend in return. Intimate Knight
Friendship can be very beautiful.
And it can be very beautifully expressed. Heather Stoop myspace graphic comments Myspace Thank You Comments & Graphics
A Blessed weekend to all!

Twins with different features

Last month we were able to hold an English Camp in one of the provinces here in South Thailand. We went there as a family and enjoyed the coolness of the place. It's near the mountains but trains were passing near the place where we stayed.
We had a 5-day camp and the children really enjoyed. After the program on the last day, everybody were taking pictures and the parents really enjoyed the performance of their children. When everybody was preparing to go, a grandma came and talk to us and then my friend told me that grandma's grandsons were twins who were my students.
I was really shocked knowing about that because for the whole 5-day classes, I could not find any semblance between the two, they really look so different. Then I told them that my father has a twin too but there is something that unites them as twins especially their faces.
I immediately took pictures of these two boys before they left. It's good that I knew before they went home. Even during classes, I find them fighting, I didn't even thought that they were brothers.
Now look at them, can you say that they are twins?


Exercise Benefits Weight Loss

I started my diet since last week and I have noticed that there is a little improvement. Then I continue this week coupled with some exercises that I've missed a couple of months ago. Then lately, I started surfing on some websites and I've found this one that really suits my need. According to this article that I have read at that exercise alone does not promote a substantial weight loss but it will be coupled with the reduced calorie-eating plan. Exercise benefits weight loss and beyond. And it sounds great to me because I was not doing any exercises lately and besides I was eating less but I didn't dare to look at the calories that I'm taking. The article also states that exercise is the key strategy for keeping weight loss. Numerous studies have found out that doing physical activities within the week, for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity of any type of physical exercises have many benefits to the human body. Like a reduced risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, high colosterol, colon and breast cancer and diabetes. It can also reduce stress that most of the people including me are concerned of, and can improve mental health. So why not start? As I was reading this. I'm encouraged to continue my long-awaited exercises that was stopped few months ago. I also agree to this article because I'm a woman - we felt better if we have done some exercises and we can do more jobs. But for men, it's different as what my hubby was always saying, no pain, no gain. If he does exercises regularly he gains strength and he feels better. There's a study at Stanford University about men and women participating in diet-only weight loss program and in diet with exercise. It shows that men in the diet with exercise program were less hungry and we're able to follow the diet. The result was found encouraging and beneficial. I think, I better start tomorrow.

Rustic Furniture

I love wooden equipments like furnitures. Ever since, I long to have this wooden things in my home even before I get married. And I have seen a lot of wooden things here in Thailand, so nice and it attracts me. Then I would tell my hubby, how I wish I could have it too.
Today, while I was surfing and looking for furnitures I've found this western Rustic Furniture at I like the designs, the designers are really creative. And besides, they are using different woods like cedar, walnut, hickory and other known and heavy woods. It will surely give nature and warm feeling to your home, and one more thing, it's environment friendly because the woods came from the mother nature. If I have this, I thought, my home will be different.
Before seeing the picture, I thought rustic furnitures are not as heavy and strong as these because of the word "rustic" for me, it's rusty and it will not last longer. But this one is something different. I enjoy seeing the different designs. It's a quality furniture that was crafted and I think your children's children can still use it.

Thankful Thursday # 11

Ruth 1:16

Where you go I'll go

Where you stay I'll stay

Your people will be my people

Your GOD will be my GOD

This is the verse that I would like to share this Thankful Thursday. Since the last week I was meditating upon this verse while reading the book of Ruth. She was a kind, caring woman. She loved her mother-in-law. She promised to stay with Naomi for as long as she lived.

The book of Ruth is a story of kindness and faithfulness, a tale of integrity, hardship and blessing. The love that they shared proves that we can never really know someone until we've wept with them. As what the saying goes and I quote, "Weep until you are maleable - God shapes best clay made soft by tears."Suffering had made them partners in their sorrow.

She was living in a different culture with different beliefs and tradition but the greatest bond between them (Ruth an Naomi) was their trust with each other. Love as strong as Ruth's results in TRUST.

Ruth's love yielded a harvest of grace and placed her name in the ancestry of JESUS!

Today I'm thankful

  • of the love of Ruth shown to Naomi
  • of how God works to different people with different circumstances
  • of God's love to mankind
  • of His great love inspite of who I am
  • of the hardship and strength to endure
  • that in the midst of sufferings an sorrows - God is still there and He understands
  • of the wisdom that comes from God Have a blessed and memorable birthday !!! LYN. Visit Spiritually Unequal Marriage for more TT posts.


Driving with Umbrella

Can you imagine this? I too, is scared everytime I saw people having umbrella while driving a motorcycle. When we first came here in Thailand, we were culturally shocked by the way people do things especially in driving motorcycle. More than 50% of the people are driving motorcycles, and not only that, I was shocked when most of the lady students drive a motorcycle with above the knee skirt, so sexy but able to drive.
Another thing that I've discovered was that they can drive a motorcycle under the rain with an umbrella. Owww! I was really scared everytime I saw them. For me, it's dangerous but for them it's normal. So when it's time for rainy season, I usually bring our camera and took pictures of those who are driving with umbrella.
Well, I think, it's in them, they love to do it, and it seems like normal for them to do so. Others, though enjoyed driving in the rain...


Approved Blog

Today, I'm so glad when I received an email that my blog is already approved by paperpost. It's quite a nice feeling. Although I didn't mind it anymore since I already submitted it few months ago and it was disapproved due to many reasons. However, now I'm happy and excited to write. So I checked to my open opportunities and started to make a post. Wow! It's so exciting, hope I can do more posts. A blessed and exciting day to all!


Fresh Scent

Scents are of any kind. It could be fresh ( like after taking a bath and you feel fresh) , or either a cologne or a perfume. Speaking of perfume, I'm not keen of having it but there are scents that I wanted to buy because it smells fresh and cool. Everytime I smell from others I really wanted to ask but of course I'm shy to do it. But I remember last year, when we were in the Phil. my sister gave me a perfume. It was Obsession Night (Calvin Klein) perfume. I like it a bit but not that I wanted. I'm still looking for that smell that I like yet I'm not sure of the name of that perfume. Hopefully, in the coming months or years I can have it. Scents differ and vary. This site provides something that you can't resist. You can check this kind of perfume. They have unique fragrances for men and women alike, and besides they have also for bath and body cologne and gift sets. They provide different scents of your choice. Try it out!
