To everyone who took time to read, comment or even just said Hi!, I really value your presence and your thoughts. You are all special to me and thank you for bringing in some blessings. I may not be able to visit you for some time now but rest assured that the universe has a way of giving back — a hundredfold? Oh yessss!

“Why would I be nervous when it’s all for God…?”
That’s from Maricor, when asked if she was ever nervous performing at church during worship. She’s a sponsored child of Kat through Compassion. There were tears…
But I guess that’s how it is when the soft spot in our heart isn’t hardened yet with bitterness.
When we acknowledge that we are capable of loving.
When we actually love.
Thank you to everyone who loves beyond themselves.
If you feel that what you are giving is just a little portion, know that it could be the biggest break that one could ever get.
If you feel that what you are giving is a big portion that eats your budget, know that the seed could grow into tree that will bear fruits and more seeds and more trees… The blessing will come around to you more than treefold — really fruitful!
Looking for smiles? Want to smile? Maybe this is it…
Thank you and yes, why would we be nervous when it’s all for God?
Why would we be nervous when we could be grateful instead?
I am thankful for…
the opportunity to reach the stars
a time to rest
How about you, what are you thankful for today?
Please share some, don’t be nervous.

To keep the devils away

A girl dreamt of being a princess
Rescued by a mighty prince charming
And living happily ever after in the castle up the hill.
She woke up a warrior
Fought the foolish prince with sword of faith
And living hopefully ever after for the kingdom beyond the hill.
For the warrior in you — I salute.
You who shared your thoughts in your blog.
You who journal your blessings.
You who cooked that meal with love.
You who said ‘Thank You’ to everyone who exerted an effort for you.
You who brushed that little girl’s hair.
You who treated yourself to a real good sleep after working so hard.
You who put your palms together and believe in God’s promises.

My life is full of bloopers even on my wedding day!
More than a decade ago I stand on the altar where the priest incorrectly mentioned the name of my groom twice. Peter, Peter — when he’s not even walking on water!
On that day I had 2 eyelashes — the real straight ones and the fake curly ones. How could I have allowed the make-up artist to put on another one! But then, me and my bestfriend wouldn’t have fun laughing how silly I look — and so I didn’t took it off!
And then my hubby’s wedding ring fell during the ceremonial opening of gifts! There were whispers, “Oh that’s a bad omen. There will be problems in the marriage!” Whhhat your spouse’ ring fell too? Hmm that explains why…
Why am I sharing this? To say that the omen is right or to prove it wrong? Oh well, I won’t talk about that today.
Today please just join me in celebrating our blog friend Maricel’s wedding with Cleto. We can leave a message for her HERE as our gift so that when she comes back she’ll have something more to smile about.
Thank you everyone!
Any wedding blooper to share? Seen a groom who ate all the cake and a bride who drank all the wine?

Heartfelt gratitude and smiles are blessings itself

So may I join the celebration for I have so many things to thank God too?
But don’t worry I won’t list everything in here — just this..
For everyone who comes in here THANK YOU!
For those who offer friendship THANK YOU!
MARAMING SALAMAT (THANK YOU VERY MUCH)!
You have to check it!
Yes, Eric’s For Heaven’s Sake
I can’t help praising God
each time I’m on his site.
I love the way I’m feeling over there
despite that the man didn’t talk back to me
– at times.
But it’s all good, I can feel Him — in his poems
And while there don’t miss his Ezekiel story.
The story is non-fiction including Pulp Fiction.
Now go talk to him — For Heaven’s Sake.
Do you roll your eyes when you say, “For heaven’s sake..”?
B R E A T H E
say THANK YOU.
say THANK GOD!
Does it FEEL GOOD?
Now feel your chest.
Check for heartbeats.
There is? Really?
You must have a heart!
What is that heart for, for you?
Is the answer same with your reality?
Hey, I’m asking myself the same questions!
Now for more heart talk please check this out.
Yes this – the T R E A S U R E in HERE!
I heart YOU for checking.
And I said, “OH NO!”
I didn’t know that he is a pastor until today!
I’m glad I only knew today otherwise, I wouldn’t dare comment in his place.
He’s really cool that I had no idea. He may not approve of the ‘cool’ description but that’s just it for me. And this is not to say that pastors are not supposed to be cool.
Today he recommended so many great Christian sites and you bet I didn’t comment no matter how I like or agree with the entries because I haven’t confirm yet if those are Pastors’ site — I find it hard to get serious today. But of course, I still want to be blessed!
GO SEE DARREN! See I call him Darren. Bless my soul!
How about you, do you know a cool pastor?
Ladies if any of you is a saint, for heaven’s sake, speak out!
You will pray for me, don’t you?
I will come up with this notsooriginal quotes!
Today I am I, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Ier than I!
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind need to sharpen their mind.
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more you know that you have so much to know.
A person’s a person, no matter how lame the excuses.
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, that’s the exercise of the mind.
So much for that silly quote. Here’s something really awesome that Dr. Seuss will approve of — Cat in the Hat and Grinch nail art!
Check the how to’s of this nail art by the lovely lady in Furry Fury Nail Art.
That’s it. Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because…I said so.
Thank you Dr. Seuss…sneeze!
please don’t hate me
but for the life of me
until now I can’t fathom
why Mona Lisa’s smile
is so famous.
Yes I love the painting
but the smile is all like other smiles
they are all special and meaningful.
Tell me, if back then
one of these faces was painted by Leonardo Da Vinci
and it was claimed that the smile is most enigmatic
don’t you think we will not rave about it to the end?
To repeat, please don’t hate me
because I admire Leonardo Da Vinci deeply
and Mona Lisa knows I love her
just like the rest of the Wonderful girls.
Lynda this is my smiling piece
for your Mona Lisa poetry challenge.
Just for the fun of it. Smile!
Not Wonder Woman Lynda Carter but the WONDERFUL Lindas whom I’m honored to meet here in blogosphere!
1st, Linda Kruschke. She’s a lawyer. No I’m not saying that because, “You have the right to remain silent…” I just want to say that I like her because she’s not judgmental but God committal. You know you want to read her Legal, Social, and Absolute Tolerance and other posts with in-depth analysis. Read it and be blessed!
2nd, Linda Hewett of Positive Spin. She’s a Confidence Coach and Writer. She wants to try to solve your problems so go tell her, it’s free! But first you would want to check her posts which are inspiring, enlightening, interesting, amazing and all positive INGS you can think of. Psst, please smile back at her and see how good it feels.
3rd, Linda Lewis of Lulu’s Musings. She’s a collage, a creator, a dreamer, an optimist and so many things! How could I not like her when most of her interests are mine too. I love checking her place because there is so much energy and creativity in there. And one more thing, I love her hair!
4th, Lynda Roberts of Echostains. Yes she’s not Linda but still she’s wonderful! I couldn’t forget the fun I had when she invited me to join her Van Gogh poetry challenge – I had a very good laugh with my Ugh Van Gogh. Her place is full of art – sculptures, paintings, designs, and even typewriter art. Go check her place and delight your heART!
This is about Wonder Woman after all. Mama, you’re not included in here because your name isn’t Linda but you are a Wonder Woman!
Any Wonder Woman in your life that you want to share? Yes, the name need not be Linda.
You’re a CEO who is loosing control of your business and personal life — yourself, your marriage, your family. Would you heed the advice of the janitor?
Roger Kimbrough, the CEO did. He had a weekly green tea meeting with janitor Bob Tidwell who shared six simple but powerful principles.
You can read and ponder what truly matters to you through the lives of the CEO and the janitor in the book THE JANITOR by authors Todd Hopkins and Ray Hilbert.
And here’s to share with you briefly the six principles that turned around the life of the CEO.
1. RECHARGE VS DISCHARGE. If you keep pouring energy out and you don’t recharge ,then one day you’ll run empty. You’ll burn out. A burned-up brain won’t start up.
2. VIEW YOUR FAMILY AS BLESSINGS NOT RESPONSIBILITY. Tell your family you love them; remind them of how much they mean to you.
3. PRAY NOT POUT. Sometimes when your plate is full, God will give you great insight on what is important to focus on and what needs to be removed from your plate entirely.
4. PASS IT AROUND. Share your knowledge and wisdom to everyone before it is too late. Anyone can give a meaningless gift. That would be no great reflection on my character, would it?
5. DON’T SPEND; INVEST! Invest your time in things that have value. Is there some eternal significance in what I am doing? Does it have any eternally significant impact on someone else?
6. LEAVE A LEGACY. It doesn’t matter if you live 2 thousand years or twenty. What matters is how you fill the space between the dates on your gravestone. Let your wisdom live and multiply in each life that you touch.
There, THE JANITOR can help me pick up the pieces and I’ll surely enjoy an evening with him sipping hot green tea. How about you?
This is a DESPERATE ATTEMPT to combine food and fashion!
If you want to check what is this all about

I simply requested it from Melissa
and the talented fashion designer was gracious enough
to came up with it here in Pink Spilled Paint!
And for my recipe, here try it.
2 tbsp olive oil
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups 1/2 inch cubed firm tofu
200 grams asparagus, sliced into 1-inch pieces
1 cup sliced shiitake mushroom
3 tbsp oyster sauce mixed with 1/4 cup water
1. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté garlic and tofu together until the tofu turns light gold.
2. Add the shiitake mushroom and the oyster sauce mixture. Leave for about 10 minutes.
3. Toss the asparagus with the tofu mushroom. It will take about 4 minutes for the asparagus to cook.
4. Transfer to a serving plate.
