Day 28: Play



Play not with fire

that burns the soul

and destroys lives.


Play not with hide and seek

hiding from responsibilities

and seeking faults.


Play not with monopoly

of ideas and decisions

someone else is in the game.


Play not of passing around

the juicy tales about someone else

go sip some tea.


Play not with indecisions

playing safe from accountability

is not safe at all.

It’s Day 28 of Feeling Good! Play used to be something to look forward to when we were young. When grown-ups associated it with something destructive play is no longer good.

Feel good again — play child’s play! Play with kids!

Hopscotch, kick the can, jump rope, jacks, marbles, tags, Simon says, freeze dance, musical chair…

Play fair — enjoy the day!


Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them” – Ecclesiastes 12:1

“Reading again? You are so lazy to do nothing but read!”

How could she make him understand that she is not just reading?

Her ears were deaf with mockery thus she savors the lines that say she is special.

Her heart was crushed, bleeding non-stop, thus she needs healing with the words.

Her spirit suffered that it wanted to escape thus she needs the pages to stop it.


“Reading again? You are so lazy to do nothing but read!”

Oh how he made her felt so small because she was looked down.

Oh how he made her felt so sad because she can no longer see love in his eyes.

And so she ran outside together with her book of comfort and climbed a tree.

She timed her tears from the moment it leaped out till it reached the ground.


“Reading again? You are so l…”

“Oh no he found me!”

“Reading again? You are so lovely up there!”

He learned how to care and not look down – because he looked up.

It’s Day 27 of Feeling Good! READ!


R-edeem your spirit

E-mbrace its value

A-llow it to soak the Word

D-ay and night


Feel good up in the tree, up in the sky, up to the Highest!


Let this book of the law be ever on your lips and in your thoughts day and night, so that you may keep with care everything in it; then a blessing will be on all your way, and you will do well. – Joshua 1:8


It looks like

It’s possible.

For sure.

It’s Day 11 of Feeling Good! Head first. Oops I do not mean that we jump head first but let reason and facts guide us. Jumping to conclusion is a pointless activity. It will make us fall without arriving at all to the truth – stressful and could be painful.

Walk in truth, to the truth, and feel good!

These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another; render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace. – Zechariah 8:16


Out of dust came man

From man’s rib woman was formed

Dust and rib now one

Then the man ribbed the woman

And the woman blew the dust

A perfect prelude

To challenging days ahead

Where rib may crack, dust wiped out.

X is for Xanthippe


Why can’t you love me like you love that couch?!!! You two are inseparable for hours!!!!! KaBOOM!

I thought you are tired of reading my mind and here you are reading newspaper while my eyebrows sweat watching your every move?!!!  What an ideal partner you are!!!! KaBLAM!

XANTHIPPE is a woman with a bad temper! A quarrelsome woman! You better remember that!

Xanthippe was the wife of Socrates, yes the wise Socrates. But his tongue was no match with his wife — he was beaten in a discussion with her. He surrendered!

You think blahblah was enough? She said to have emptied a chamber pot on Socrates’ head after a quarrel to which he remarked, “After thunder generally falls rain.” Harhar!

You think a bad temper only means a sharp tongue — an explosion? Bad temper is a proud silence too — an implosion. It’s when we practice the silent treatment that even the hot soup gets cold in discomfort.

I realized that Xanthippe is within me for several occasions. Each time I am silent and hold a grudge. Each time I roar in anger.

We have to strive to tame our thoughts and the tongue. We have to because we make the lives of those around us so difficult. So difficult that we want to explode! Again! And again!

It’s not easy. It won’t work by simply refusing the false power in bad temper. We have to accept God’s gift of wisdom and tolerance instead — and  use it.

Yes, use it! What part of USE can’t you understand?



I like to think of thoughts as living blossoms borne by the human tree.  ~James Douglas

You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind.  – Unknown

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?  – Winnie the Pooh

There are some days I practice positive thinking, and other days I’m not positive I am thinking. – John M. Eades

No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking.  -Voltaire

How wonderful that we have met with a paradox.  Now we have some hope of making progress.  – Niels Bohr

I think I need some rest with the Lord, right now. Blessings to everyone.

Anne of Green Gables

That redhead imaginative optimistic chatterbox orphan is so lovable! She has limitless energy and dream big! Thanks to Lucy Maud Montgomery for writing Anne of Green Gables — I enjoyed it a lot, 102 years after its publication!

Why hasn’t anyone mentioned about that book when I was young? She could have been one of my best friends aside from Nancy Drew and Perry Mason. But then it’s not yet too late now — “I solemnly swear to be faithful to my bosom friend, Anne Shirley, as long as the sun and moon shall endure”. There Anne, I can be one of your best friends aside from Katie Maurice from behind the bookshelf, Violetta your echo and Diana Barry!

Thank you Theresa for mentioning Anne and for this comment, “Whenever believers make the wrong choice it makes their hearts sick and feel terrible pain”. This is so very Anne, don’t you think so? And isn’t this fitting too this Christmas when we might blame the feast on the table for making our heart and stomach sick?

Thank you Anne! My kiddos are happy for me — for the smile on my lips and the excitement in my eyes when I tell them about you — Ann with an ‘e’! And they tried to answer one of your questions too, “Which would you rather be if you had the choice — divinely beautiful or dazzlingly clever or angelically good”?

Can you answer the question easily without worry that you could be making the wrong choice?



“We are all born equal, yet some stars shine brighter than others”.

This is actually a comment for the quote in here and I would like to receive more thoughts on a question that I have in mind so here it is now — posted! And here it is now — the question!

“And why is that? Is it because they made themselves brighter than others or others made them brighter than themselves?”

Come on now, broaden this girl’s perspective!

Yes, I’m a girl right now!


“Be fearful of mediocrity”

Take that from a guy who has 30 awards in advertising and counting for more!

You would really want to check his site for collection of graphics

that might inspire and puzzle you or just make you go hmm and whoa!

And to top it all, there’s something on his top — a topnotch mind.

Now that I’m already spinning like a top, go meet the total package guy.

Yes, he knows a great deal about packaging

which will make you want to buy whatever is inside.

I’m talking about Alan Firmin — A. Firmin — Affirming!


Alan Firmin

Go see Alan now in HERE!

By the way, I’m guilty of so many mediocre works and attitudes.

The results killed me a number of times.

Now, I learned my lessons — got to love myself really good. lol

I am actually learning from all of you.




The Janitor


The Janitor -move your mind and heart

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?
