1 Corinthians 11:26 26For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
Some time ago, one of our church members developed deep vein thrombosis (DVT) while on a flight to Israel. As she was disembarking from the plane, she collapsed. She was rushed to the hospital. But on the way there, her heart stopped beating. Apparently, the blood clot in her leg had gone to her heart, causing it to stop beating. The doctors managed to revive her heart after a few attempts, but she remained unconscious.
When I arrived at the hospital with some of my church leaders a few days later, I was told that her condition had worsened. She was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). My leaders and I decided to partake of the Holy Communion in the ICU, proclaiming that Jesus had borne all her diseases, including DVT, and that His blood had already redeemed her from all curses, including diseases and death.
The next day, she regained consciousness! Her recovery was so supernatural that after a week of observation, she was discharged and was soon touring Israel with the next tour group that arrived there.
In another case, a church member’s elderly mother underwent a series of operations and her condition deteriorated to the point where the doctor told the family to prepare for the worst. The family took Holy Communion in the ICU. They even put a small crumb in their mother’s mouth and poured a little grape juice in. On the third day, something miraculous happened — their mother regained consciousness, got well and was discharged not too long after!
You see, each time you eat the bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death for you. You discern that the Lord’s body was broken so that your body can be whole. You discern that His healthy body has borne your diseases and pains, so that your body can be well. So when you eat the bread, you say that by His stripes you are healed. And when you drink the cup, you are drinking the life of Jesus which is in His blood.
Beloved, the life of Jesus is pain-free, disease-free and poverty-free. It attracts the favor and blessings of God. And because you have that life in you, it causes good things to happen to you!
I used to blog everyday this past few months but just recently, another responsibility was given to me. This is just actually an every Tuesday close of New York business thing but I have to go through training and familiarization so I had my eyes on it. The demo checks was also given to me. I've got two new stuff on my shoulders now and I am a one-woman team so I really have to make sure I understand before US can let go. I don't want to bug them late at night because I don't know what to do. tsk tsk.
Today, I am just dropping by to say Hi! Its not all the time I see myself busy so I am loving this. Makes my brain run again. :)
Have you heard of Octopus Paul? Well, I first heard or known of him when I saw him featured in Channel News Asia and a headline in xinMSN. It says, he is retiring? I was like, huh? I googled about him and found interesting information.
According to WIKI,
Paul (purportedly hatched January 2008) is a common octopus living in a tank at a Sea Life Centre in Oberhausen, Germany. Paul became internationally famous for correctly "predicting" the winner of Germany's seven matches at the 2010 World Cup, as well as the final.
During the divinations, Paul was presented with two boxes containing food in the form of a mussel, each box marked on the outside with the flag of a national football team in an upcoming match. He chose the box with the flag of the winning team in four of Germany's six Euro 2008 matches, and in all seven of their matches in the 2010 World Cup. He correctly predicted a win for Spain against the Netherlands in the World Cup final on 11 July by eating the mussel in the box with the Spanish flag on it. His predictions were 100% (8/8) correct for the 2010 World Cup and 86% (12/14) correct overall. Paul was retired after the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The keeper at the aquarium claims that Paul wasn't the octopus which predicted the results for the 2008 UEFA European Football Championships, which would give him 100% accuracy overall.

Saturday night, I had the most painful back ache in my life - I just dropped and cried, talked to Hershey how she needs to ride a stroller now. The pain was due to the fact that I carried her whiles she's sleeping, standing for almost 30 minutes waiting for the bus. I think she was shocked with me so she cried too while wiping my tears. The next morning when she woke up, she told me, "Mommy, buy tayo stroller. Ride Hershey!" I was very happy so after our breakfast we headed to the nearest mall. I am buying a new potty chair for her too because the one she's been using is not dependable, it tips over when Hershey leans on it.
We checked the first store and she likes this pink Evenflo stroller but I thought I am buying Quinny Zapp so we're off to the other mall.
But finally settled for this... Same as what she had a year ago... Cosco umbrella type stroller from ToysRUs. Quinny zapp is not avail in the mall, thank God. yey! :)
And bought her new potty chair... :)
No weekend buys for myself or for hubby. For my lovely readers, I hope you enjoyed your weekend and had a little shopping for yoursel! :)
Your Words Carry Power!
4Where the word of a king is, there is power…
In Bible times, a king’s word carried tremendous power. What he decreed would come to pass. It would be done. For example, if he said, “Raise the taxes,” the taxes would be raised.
Do you know that we are kings? The Bible tells us that Jesus has washed us from our sins with His blood and made us kings. (Revelation 1:5–6) And as kings in Christ, our words carry power too.
When we place our hands on a sick person and say, “Be healed,” the person is healed. When we lay hands on our children and say, “Be blessed,” our children are blessed. There is power in our words because they are the words of kings!
When I was a young Christian in my teens, I wanted to practice what I had learnt about the power of my words. There was this particular plant near my home and whenever I passed by it, I would say to it, “Be cursed in Jesus’ name!”
Many days passed. And I will never forget the day when I noticed that the leaves of the plant had turned brown! You may want to try this at home with your potted plants, but bless them instead!
Since our words carry power, can you imagine the harm we do when we say to our loved ones things like, “You are always so careless”, “You are good for nothing” or “You are so stupid”? We are cursing them!
The devil is happy when you use the power of your words against yourself and your loved ones. He wants to see you defeated. So instead of saying, “I am always short of money,” say, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1) Instead of saying, “I am so useless. I can’t do anything,” start saying, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
Beloved, remember that as a king, what you say will come to pass because where the word of a king is, there is power. So learn to say what God says about you in His Word and see His promises come to pass in your life
We were out these past few days, Saturday -Monday we were around Singapore. It was really tiring because aside from being a commuter, we also have to carry the 16.5 kgs baby when we are just on our foot, walking. She sometimes doesn't like to walk unless you tell her to run, Daddy is chasing! LOL. But adults can't really all the time in public, right? And she doesn't want her nanny to carry her, so it's really only me or her dad. *sigh*
So I talked to my daughter, telling her she's so heavy, mom and dad's arms feel numbed most of the time when we carry her so she must consider riding on a pram again. I am seriously thinking through this as she also had a fever since last night, i think because she was also exhausted and got sick when we got home. Atleast if she's on a pram, she can sit down comfortably or sleep if she likes (but sleeping on a pram is not her thing)
Hershey had used 3 prams/strollers so far. The first one is a Combi Machanacal, an orange pram given by my very good friend, Princess but unfortunately we lost it- left it in the cab.
Before we lost the Combi, I bought her an umbrella type Cosco stroller from Toys R Us. It was very light weight. It was a really an ideal stroller until we left it on the cab again.
And again before we lost the umbrella stroller, Hershey had her very famous to most of my friends, my super la-love Quinny Buzz. :) This is the only pram she can sleep on. But unfortunately again, I sold it after 5 months usage because she doesn't want to ride on it anymore. Just that, one day, she doesn't want it at all. It was really sad to let go and sell it more than half the price.
Now, I'm contemplating on buying another one. We looked for one yesterday but most of the prams just hold kids up to 40 lbs and Hershey is almost 17kgs now.
We were at Mums&Babes yesterday and I saw the below,
Looks nice, right? :) My husband told H to not try to say yes when I asked her if she wants it because no doubt, she'll gonna ride home with it. LOL. Good thing, there was something that stopped me, problem is, it can only hold kids up to 40 lbs else you have to upgrade the tires. Tsk! Hassle!
Or maybe Zapp 2009? *Sigh* Most of the pram we checked are only ideal for children 40 lbs. That's not fair! But before I buy anything, I have to consult first the one who'll ride on it if she likes it or not. She already said yes, so let's see.
I pray that the Lord will show me the best pram for the little one. Sooonnn....
Hubby and I had a movie date yesterday, we watched the third film of the Twilight Saga, Eclipse. I was excited ofcourse, we were suppose to watch the last full show, tonight, Friday but because of my friends bombarding me with their FB status on Eclipse, the plan changed - booked 2 tickets online instead for Thursday afternoon viewing. :) You see, it was the first screening day of Eclipse in SG while in Pinas, 29th of June. :) Late bloomer, Singapore! LOL

I liked it but not too much! :) Can't wait for the DVD! LOL
Okay, so like other sisters, I am participating this week's GT, I love my Body.
Let's start with my behind. Many people said my best asset is my BUTT but sometimes I feel shy because it's bigger than normal. LOL
Also my legs, I dont know why but I receive a lot of compliments for it. I remember years ago at Kodak Cubao, the store owner told my husband (my boyfriend then) that he is lucky to have a girlfriend who has sexy legs. He can flaunt me to anyone. I feel good but felt bad at the same time. So that's it? My legs? Grrr.
Another is my feet. :) They say I make sandals/open shoes look nice because I have nice feet. Aawww! LOL. I have an admirer when I was in college (both of us working part time in Mcdonalds) who loves touching my feet and even kissing it. LOL. Weird.
Also, thanks for my mom for sharing with me a body with curve. Before I gave birth my body stat is 34-25-35. Then eventually 35-28-37. LOL But still my waist is narrow. I remember a friend, MHAI, who always says, "Mabuti pa to si HAPI kasi kahit malaki tiyan pero may bewang, sexy pa din tignan!" LOL
Ayoko na! :) Alright so that's all - I would love to stop now before I mention every part of my body, because I feel good about them all except my tummy! har har
PS: these are the photos available now. I will try to update the pics with the recent ones. :) to give justice! LOL
