A Day of My life

Last Thursday, I called in sick! I have horrible sore throat and headache. I needed a rest. One day rest is enough for me to recover as I’ve proven so many times. I just need a Sara paracetamol tablet, lots of water intake and eat fresh guava.

Before the clock strike 12 noon, I felt a lot better. The tendency of me when I’m staying home is I can see lots of household chores that need a mom’s attention. I put used clothes in washing machine, fold dry clothes, tidy the kitchen a little bit and weed the front yard! It seems that I did accomplish a lot in just an hour! My son and I took our nap and we woke up feeling refreshed! I’m so happy that my day was productive even though I wasn’t able to go to school.

Today, I felt more relax. There are only few clothes to be washed, few of them to be folded. I watched New Police Story starred by Jackie Chan with my family, took a nap and now I’m ready to iron clothes. I have nothing to complain. I’m happy for my job and at the same time taking care of my family. I welcomed these with wide open arms and smile. I enjoy my life as a teacher, a mother and as a wife. Simple things are great gifts from God.

God Girl

I’m excited to dance again:) Our team leader just posted on our Facebook that we’re going to practice today the song of Jamie Grace “God Girl”. We’re going to present this during the Youth Special Dinner on the last Sunday of the month. I love the girly actions. If I was able to dance “Me Without You” last December, then I could do it:)

“God Girl”

Oh oh oh oh yeah
If my eyes light up with I say your name
And it’s written all over my face
Tell me does it make me crazy
Well, maybe I got somethin’ that I can’t explain
And the beauty of it never changes
It’s got me wrapped up
I’m all caught up
I can’t help but say

I’m a God girl that’s who I’ll be
From the top of my head to the soles of my feet
No I can’t deny it, wouldn’t even try
I’m your girl in a crazy world
I’m a God girl that’s who I’ll be
From the top of my head to the soles of my feet
I can’t deny it, wouldn’t even try
I’m your girl for the whole wide world to see
(See, See, See)

And when my ears start hearin’ what people say
Hurry up find love cause times tickin’ away
Well, I’m not bein’ lazy I’m just waiting for
Still waiting for the right boy
Cause I only want to listen to your voice
So I’ll be listenin’
Always listenin’ to you everyday

Cause I’m a God girl that’s who I’ll be
From the top of my head to the soles of my feet
No I can’t deny it, wouldn’t even try
I’m your girl in a crazy world
I’m a God girl that’s who I’ll be
From the top of my head to the soles of my feet
I can’t deny it, wouldn’t even try
I’m your girl for the whole wide world to see

Your name in lights
My biggest dream
My all in all
You’re all I need
Hand in hand with the master of all creativity
And I won’t stop until I know
All my facebook friends and foes
Look at me and only see one thing

I’m a God girl that’s who I’ll be
From the top of my head to the soles of my feet
I can’t deny it, wouldn’t even try
I’m your girl in a crazy world
God girl that’s who I’ll be
From the top of my head to the soles of my feet
No I can’t deny it, wouldn’t even try
I’m yours

Oh I’m a love girl and I’ll always be
From the top of my head to the soles of my feet
I can’t deny it, wouldn’t even try
I’m your girl for the whole wide world to see

(Your name in lights)
(Can’t change it)
(Can’t fake it)
(Can’t break it)

(You can’t change, can’t fake, can’t break)
(I’m your girl)

Oh oh oh oh yeah
For the whole wide world,
The whole wide world to see

Excited!

Ten Rules for Happier Living

Who doesn’t want to be happy? Everyone of us wants to be happy! But many fail in their quest to find that elusive prize because they are looking in the wrong places. On reading the Bible, It tells us how to be happy. Proverbs 16:20 tells us, “Whoever trusts in the Lord , happy is he.” And Psalm 146:5 indicates that happiness comes to those who find their help and hope in God.

So we see? The foundation for happiness is a proper relationship with the Lord. But to fully experience that happiness , we must build on that foundation in practical ways. I found this list of Ten Rules for Happier Living:

1. Give something away.
2. Do a kindness.
3. Give thanks always.
4. Work with vim and vigor.
5. Visit the elderly and learn from their experience.
6. Look intently into the face of a baby and marvel.
7. Laugh often-it’s life’s lubricant.
8. Pray to know God’s way.
9. Plan as though you will live forever-you will.
10. Live as though today is your last day on earth.

Aren’t the above rules are excellent ideas for happy living? Undergird each of these rules with praise, and your happiness will be complete.

The Tambourine Dancers

Last Sunday (August 5) is the church’s 8th Anniversary. My sister and I joined the Tambourine dancers on Praise and Worship team. We’re not able to join the special performances of the group because we’re late in joining the group. Hopefully next time we can join them as I love dancing and also I like to wear the group’s stylish outfit!

Here are the gorgeous ladies using their talents in dancing to glorify our Lord and Creator:

I’m already on this group. You can spot me and my sister. We’re the ones who wore differently:)
