Happy Easter ♥

What is Easter Sunday?

Easter is the day when we celebrate Jesus Christ rising from the dead. Jesus is the Son of God and heroically gave His life to die for our sins. On the third day after He died — the day we now celebrate as Easter Sunday — His friends went to His grave, and found that He had risen from the dead. They saw an angel who told them, “Don’t be afraid! I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He has been raised from the dead, just as He said it would happen.”

Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday; now He offers to you the gift of eternal life and forgiveness of sins. This is the true story of Easter, and how it can change your life. Here are 4 principles that tell how you can receive the gift of God for your life.

There is a lot of confusion regarding what Easter Sunday is all about. For some, Easter Sunday is about the Easter Bunny, colorfully decorated Easter eggs, and Easter egg hunts. Most people understand that Easter Sunday has something to do with the resurrection of Jesus, but are confused as to how the resurrection is related to the Easter eggs and the Easter bunny.

God Loves You!

The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”

The problem is that all of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God.

The Bible says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says “The wages of sin is death.”

The good news is that, about 2,000 years ago, God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.

Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. “God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”

Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life — of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me.”

God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name.” You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.

If you want to accept Christ as Savior and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this:

“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins.  Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life.  I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always.”

* Earlier this morning I went to Immaculate Conception Church to hear mass. During the homily, I felt really blessed and thankful. I was able to reflect how Jesus sacrificed everything for us. If only I could personally thank HIM, I wouldn’t hesitate to do so. For now, the only way I could show how much I’m grateful is to – PRAY.

After the homily, the priest then sprinkles holy water on us. I am blessed from head to toe. Like literally from head to toe. Afterwhich, I felt so good. The feeling of holy water flowing on your skin – WHEW! I never felt as blessed like this! — Emotionally, physically and spiritually. I am beyond blessed.

Thank You, Jesus. Thank You.

Healthy Rules :’)

Published March 27, 2013 by angelivillegas

Relationships are hard work. They can be stressful and, at times, drive you nuts. Thousands of people write to newspapers and magazines daily seeking relationship advice. Television “gurus,” therapists and self-help books have made a multi-million dollar business out of couples’ desire to make their relationship work. When it comes to relationship advice, we can all dole it out, but find it much harder to follow it ourselves. In the midst of a relationship, logic can yield to emotion, and composure to frustration.

There are some general rules for relationship health that if you follow them your happiness level should improve tremendously.

1. Compassion, understanding, respect and empathy are essential.

Avoid: Criticism or contempt.

Also avoid:

2. Blaming or shaming.

3. Defensiveness.

4. Negativity.

5. Stonewalling or turning away.

6. Being the victim or the perp.

7. Fight fair: No yelling, name calling, sarcasm or hitting below the belt or eye gouging, rabbit punches or throwing things at or near the other person. With anger, never suppress it, never express it. Find out what is causing the anger and then..

8. Talk about: What you need, want, feel and what’s important to you and then make it about what each of you can do to make it better next time.

9. Be tender in all your interactions.

10. Keep your promises.

11. Develop and nurture a good sense of humor.

12. Acknowledge what your partner is saying before you say your piece.

13. Show appreciation.

14. Be responsible for yourself, your health and your messes.

15. Be considerate.

16. Own your part in a problem, even if it is 98 percent and 2 percent, own your 2 percent.

17. Make a commitment to making your relationship work. Be a part of the solution.

18. Connection is your top priority.

19. Practice loving kindness.

20. Accentuate the positive.

Following these simple ideas may take a lifetime because they are goals, not imperatives. We all need to know is where the road leads us to and, after all, isn’t all about the journey?

St. Jude

Published March 19, 2013 by angelivillegas

Gamit si poty [iPodtouch5] susubukan kong maging makabuluhan ang kwento ko. Haha :))

Hindi ako nakatulog. Literal na hindi. Si boyfie nasa work kagabi. Pag may time sya, tatawag o magtetext sya. Oooops! Teka. Hindi sya ang dahilan kung bakit wala akong tulog. Nabanggit ko lang na nasa work sya. Yun lang. XD.

Inaantok ako kagabi, totoo yun. Pero ung utak ko, gising na gising. Di ko alam kung bakit. Siguro dahil:

A.) Excited dahil pupunta ako sa St. Jude na madalas ko puntahan nung College ako.

B.) First time ni boyfie pumunta dun at excited ako makaharap si St. Jude kasama sya.

C.) May gustong tapusin at sobrang hyper ng utak gumana.

D.) All of the above

Siguro letter D. lol. Echos ko lang gumawa ng choices na yan. XD.

Eto na. Ngayon pa lang ako magsisimula ng kwento. 🙂

* 8:00am sinundo ako ni boyfie dito sa bahay. Sumakay ng fx papuntang lrt katipunan station.

* kulitan sa lrt. Umaga, expected na siksikan sa train. Habang nasa train, ugali ko na talaga ang magkunwaring matutumba habang umaandar ang train. Kahit saan kami magpunta na kailangan mag lrt o mrt. Walang mintis un, trip ko lang. Lakas tama ako eh. [shabu paaaaaa!] lol. Kasi si boyfie todo kapit sa mga hawakan ng train kahit masikip dahil hindi sanay. E ako, laking train kaya ako! JK. 4yrs ba naman ako laging sumasakay dun papuntang school ko [ Centro Escolar University ] bakit hindi ako masasanay. Dun mo ako tawaging adik kung lagi ako pa-keme-keme sa train. lol. Kahit nakaupo, ginugulo ko si boyfie. Ganun talaga ako. Osige na nakakahiya na kasama 😛

* Legarda station. Eto na. Woohoo. Marami na rin ang nagbago simula nang huli kong punta ng Legarda. Year 2010 pa ata ung huli. Ewan. Basta years na. Ayun, medyo impressed naman ako 😐 trololol straight face. Magulo pa rin kasi. Ang arte ako. Hahaha!

* Habang naglalakad papuntang St. Jude, si boyfie ang daming tanong. “Saan yun papunta mamee? E yun, ano yun? Bakit ganun yun? Anong meron dun?” Hahaha. Nakakatuwa. Parang bata na dinala mo sa theme park na super amazed sa lugar na pinuntahan. Edi super ultra mega sagot naman ako. Naging tour guide na rin. Woooo. Eshusmi, mahal po ang bayad ko. lol.

*Sa St. Jude bago pumasok, sabi ko sa kanya mag wish sya. May kasabihan kasi na kapag first time mo papasok ng simbahan kapag nag-wish ka eh matutupad. Ewan ko lang kung totoo nga o baka gawa-gawa ko lang yan para masabing may alam akong kasabihan? Weeee. JK. Totoo nga yan. Maniwala ka. Promise. Cross my heart. Pinky swear. 😀 lagi ko yan sinasabi sa kanya sa tuwing sinasama ko sya sa simbahan na hindi nya pa napuntahan. At alam mo ba [parang nakikipagchismisan lang XD] isa pang kasabihan sa St. Jude? Na ang nagpupunta daw dun na mag bf-gf eh nagkakatuluyan at magtatagal. Yesssssss! Syempre gusto ko yun noh. At paniniwalaan ko yoooooooon ng bongga! 🙂 at nagdasal na nga kami, taimtim na pagdarasal kasama si boyfie. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam :))

* Paglabas, nagsindi kami ng kandila. At nagdasal uli. Kaunting kwentuhan tungkol sa lugar na iyon hanggang sa isinama ko na sya sa lugar kung saan maraming kainan. At gustong-gusto nya yun syempre ;))

* Sa likod ng CEU ko sya dinala. Malapit sa DentSci ( Dental Science ) bldg kung tawagin. Dun nakahilera ang mga kainan. Dun kami madalas nung College days. At nagustuhan nya naman :))

* Matapos kumain nagyaya na akong umuwi dahil alam kong pagod na sya. Sa kanila muna kami dumiretso. Quality time kumbaga. At syempre ano pa ba ang posibleng mangyari tuwing nandun ako sa kanila? @_@ ………… ………. ………… ………… …………

Anong iniisip mo? Hahahaha. Sige isip. Clue: Yung masarap gawin kapag katabi sya. . . .

Wohohoho! ok. siret na? kfine.

TULOG. At syempre nakatulog ako agad. Ako si masan/mahi. Masandal o mahiga makakatulog agad 😉 woohoo! Ang sarap kasi talaga matulog pag sakanya nakahiga o nakayakap 🙂

At yun na nga. Nang magising ako, nagpahatid na ako pauwi para tuloy tuloy na pahinga nya. May pasok pa kasi sya mamayang gabi. Ang sarap lang talaga sa feeling. 🙂

Ang pinakamasarap sa pakiramdam, yung hindi mo sya kailangang pilitin. Kapag pwede at kaya ka nyang samahan, kahit mapuyat sya gagawin nya. At gustong-gusto kong isinasama sya sa Simbahan para magdasal kami ng sabay. Ramdam mo na hindi sya napipilitan iharap sarili nya kay God. Sa kanya ko lang talaga nakita lahat. Pagiging kaibigan, ka-ibigan at katampuhan. Hahaha. Chos. Basta yun na. Sobrang pinaparamdam nya ang pagmamahal nya.

Ayun. Tapos na. May makabuluhan ba akong nasabi? Mehehe! Ang ewan lang siguro nito.

Antok na ako. Tutulog na ako uli. 31hrs na kasi akong gising. Ang adik ko meeeeeen. Wooooo.

Yun na. Byeeeeee 🙂 Salamat sa effort basahin ‘to. Aminin mo. May natutunan ka naman diba? :))

Goodnight ~.~
