Love... 8 years and counting

Image
oooh, love of my life...
destined forever
you know the joy you bring to me...


After my college years, I was really determined to get myself a job, that is due to the financial instability my family is undergoing. I am the first of the four, and after me, 2 college kids are still asking for financial insurance because of their education. My determination to get myself a job was answered, Joy gave me one. I worked as a staff of WebLink Philippines Inc. I have to help in the internet cafe as customer service consultant. I was then being technically aided with Ric, the company's computer engineer and technical geek.

Ric and Sheng, 8 loving years

My first day of work then was May 31, months have passed and I have known Ric for his being active in checking the computers and the internet connection, we then found each other to be lunch partners. I was officially in love with another guy then, one who really made me feel special then. But this guy was always never beside me, he w…

Make Me a Servant

Make me a servant, humble and meek
Lord let me lift up those who are weak.
And may the prayer of my heart always be,
Make me a servant, make me a servant, make me a servant
Today.


Last night, we watched a recital from Lagao Alliance School and heard this song again. It was the song i have placed in my heart when i was still a kid, i really wanted to be used by God, and yet, I feel that I wasn't being used, or better yet, I did not allow God to use me. But then again look at what I am now, a mother of two beautiful kids. I say being a mother is a gift, and a whole bunch of responsibility comes with it. When I say I love to be a mom to them is like saying being a caretaker of God's beautiful creations, isn't that being used by God and being HIS servant. I guess I did become a servant, me thinks! And I hope and pray, He is being glorified with what I do.

Thank you God for using me.

Raine Cassandra D. Dumalay

I have a wonderful daughter, Raine Cassandra Dumalay. We call her "Tabebs" for when she was a baby, she has bubbly cheeks and for Ilonggos, we call them "tambok" and ever since then , she is our "tambok na baby" and so for the nice nick she has. At 2 yrs 5 months old, she already knows Bahay Kubo by heart, and relates with the TV commercials, sings Barney is a Dinosaur, and adds with... Dinosaur si Barney. I love her so much, she always makes us laugh. She gets more of my attitude, but the brains from her dad, or so he says... She has a knack for a lot of things, she can use the mouse and point it over to the thing she wants to click on, and she can do very well her ABC's. She's a fan of M&Ms and Toblerone, she can eat three slices in one big swallow like a snake does a chicken , and take note, she does it with ease.

This daughter of mine will surely be a "good sweep" for the boys come her 16th bir…
