At The Cross
by: Hillsongs

Although you’ve searched me
You know my way
You fail with my failure
I know you love me

Your holy presence
Surrounded me
In every season
I know you love me
I know you love me

At the cross i bow my knees
Where your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this

You have overcome the grave
Glory fills the highest praise
What can separate me now

You go before me
You shield my way
Your hand upholds me
And i know you love me

At the cross i bow my knees
Where your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this

You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest praise
What can separate me now

At the cross i bow my knees
Where your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this no

You have overcome the grave
Glory fills the highest praise
What can separate me now

You taught a way you made a way
When you said that it is done
You taught a way you made a way
When you said that it is done

And when the earth fails
Falls from my eyes
And you stand before me
I know you love me
Oh i know you love me

At the cross i bow my knees
Where your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this no

You have overcome the grave
Glory fills the highest praise
What can separate me now

At the cross i bow my knees
Where your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this no

You have overcome the grave
Glory fills the highest praise
What can separate me now

You taught a way you made a way
When you said that it is done
You taught a way you made a way
When you said that it is done

You taught a way you made a way
When you said that it is done
You taught a way you made a way
When you said that it is done

It may be normal for us to have petty arguments with our parents. As we grow and as they become old, conflicts are really inevitable. But we, as their children need to give way all the time. They’re still our parents and we should keep that in mind.

I also get little arguments with my mom, especially when I drive, she doesn’t like how I manage the wheels. We also argue when she becomes irritable at times- again, it is because she’s getting old and that makes her touchy. But, I know that deep down… my respect for her never fades. Kaya I feel guilty ‘din when I have to stand for my opinions. ^^.
Pero no matter what happens, I’m sure that I will never leave my parents and I will take care of them when they get old, and I will find time for them…definitely! Why am I saying these things?
Yesterday, I was at the hospital to see my OB-gyne. After the consultation, I went out and stood in front of the lift. At my back, I noticed this old man, at his 80-ish (maybe). He was alone and was having a hard time reading the paper that his doctor gave him. I just looked at him. The lift stopped in front of us, I entered, and he followed. He asked the lift-operator where the Nuclear room was. I knew where it was but I kept quiet. As soon as we got off the lift, I asked him where he was heading to (kahit alam ko na…). He gave me the paper and I just smiled at him and saidTara tatay, samahan na kita”. He smiled back and said “doon ka din ba pupunta?”. I just answered “opo”. But honestly, I needed to go to the 9th floor not to the 2nd floor where he was headed to. I just didn’t say that. The lift finally reached the 2nd level, we got off. While we were looking for the room, he said “buti na lang nandiyan ka, kung hindi nawala na ako, salamat ha?” I smiled at him and said “Wala po yon, Tay, bakit po wala kayong kasama? Dapat pag pumupunta kayo dito may kasama kayo palage kasi malaki po tong’ Capitol Tay”. I didn’t get an answer except for the sincere smile on his face. Finally, we saw the Nuclear room. I talked with the nurse who was assigned at that time and gave her the request paper. I also asked the nurse if she would be kind enough to lead Tatay to the lobby after the procedure.. “ate, mag-isa lang si tatay eh kaya sinamahan ko lang siya, pero kailangan ko umakyat sa 9th floor”. The nurse said “oo ba ma’am, tara tatay dito tayo sa loob”. Tatay smiled at me and said “salamat anak..”.  I answered back with a smile “wala po yon tatay, siya na po bahala sa inyo”.
I left the room. It felt good that I helped Tatay in my own little way, however, it was so heartbreaking that he went to the hospital to have his health consultation ALONE. Where were his loved ones yesterday? Why was he there with no clues where the Nuclear room was? Where were his children?:( I didn’t know his story, but I knew that he needed someone yesterday. 😦
I promised to myself that my parents will never ever experience that. NEVER! 😦

I Love Sunday!

me @ Yakimix!
Yesterday was a busy, looooong, and yet happy sunday!
I woke up at 9:30am which was later than my usual wake-up-time. I took a shower right away and went out with my bestfriend. We went to SM North to have her laptop checked. It was already past 1:00pm and our stomachs were crying for food so we went to Razon’s at Techno Hub and tried their Sisig. It was soooo sarap for just 160 (two thumbs again for Razon’s). We arrived home @ 2:30pm so I had 15 minutes to plurk, fb, and tumblr. At 2:45pm, I went to the church to hear the Sunday mass (John 8: 1-11). Got home at 4:15pm, and I had to change my outfit for a luscious dinner at Yakimix at 6:00pm. The dinner was sooo good!
Thank you God for all the blessings! 🙂

It’s All About Holy Week

18 Mar

I have been thinking of some fruitful (as far this coming holy week is concerned) things to do this coming Holy Week.
We all know that Holy Week is the time when we remember how and why Jesusdied for us. The most important thing, the Holy Week should remind us why Jesuswas crucified on the cross- everyday, we crucify him- yes.. every time when we make sins. That’s how much the Father and his Son love us.
So why not discern, think of our sins, and be sorry for them. Holy Week gives us the opportunity to repent all our sins in any way that we can. Repentance involves sacrifices. That is why some of us repent by doing things like Visita Iglesias; Cenaculos and Pabasas; flagellants are everywhere (as far as the Philippine culture is concerned) etc.
Also (for me), repentance is not all about these traditions and innovations. Repentance is all about you regretting and making sacrifices. When you know you have the sincere heart to ask for God’s forgiveness, you may atone silently, wherever you are, even if you stay at home. To be sorry for what you have sinned for is a simple act of sacrifice.
So what are your plans this coming Holy Week? How about my plans? hmm.. I’ll probably have a Visita Iglesia like what I did last year, I hope I’ll get my doctor’s approval. 🙂

Vocabulary check:
“Flagellants” people who deal with Flagellation.
They scourge themselves in a somewhat paganistic manner considered medieval by many. This is done by stripping themselves naked from the waist up, walking barefooted under a midday sun and flagging themselves bloody with ropes and broken pieces of glass attached with strings to bamboo sticks. They do this as a means of atonement of their sins. It is a sort of retribution of their offenses and human weaknesses for past favor such as after going through some crisis or danger in their lives. This is commonly practiced in the provinces of Pampanga, Tarlac, Rizal and practically all over the Tagalog region. –http://www.thenewstoday.info/2006/04/12/holy.week.in.the.philippines.html
