Sometimes we get caught with the things we are doing at present that we forgot why we are doing them. We get easily distracted and all of a sudden we are too far from where we wanted to be in the first place or we get lost.

This typhoon, Typhoon Ondoy, has been the worst Metro Manila has ever seen since 1968. With just 6 hours of continuous rain 34.1 millimeter of rain flooded most areas in the region including some of the places that doesn't get flooded before. The NCR region where Metro Manila is located with 17 cities which includes Quezon City, Pasig, Marikina, Manila, and neighboring provinces such as Cainta, San Mateo and Aurora, Region 1, 2 and 3 is now under the state of calamity.
We were not so much prepared for this. If it would have been an ordinary rain we would be happy to do our usual rain harvesting with our rain barrels. But this is no ordinary rain. Water levels have reached critical level in dams surrounding the region and flood water have eaten up 3 story houses already.
Some people would have been resourceful enough to convert rain water barrels as a flotation device to be able to evacuate flood devastated areas but because the flood water rose too quickly nobody was able to do anything and most were trapped on their rooftop just to keep at least part of their body dried. I hope by tomorrow the flood has subside and that the death toll of 60 as of press time does not rise. Our fellowmen will need food, blanket and clothes, so we will be needing the help of anyone who can.

When you no longer grow together...
When it's an effort to do things you used to enjoy doing...
When you can no longer find your smile...
Then it's time to let go and move on.

A problem isn't a problem unless you can solve it. If you can't find a solution to it then it's not a problem but a situation in your life you have to accept. Instead of going against the flow you should accept the situation and do your best to live it. Resistance is futile. It will only drain your energy and everything positive you have in your life. You don't need anymore frustration in your life that you already have. If you've done your best to reach a certain goal and fail and you did it as many times as you could then it means it's not meant for you. God has other plans for you so just let go and accept. Do not resist. Sometimes what we want is not meant for us.
My computer doesn't have a big memory and so I don't install a lot of software in it, having a full memory just makes the computer work slow and it's a hassle when you have to do something fast.
Don't you just hate it when you get a file via e-mail and you don't have the right file extension dat driver for it? If you are not familiar with dat files they are a raw code that means data. Technically it can be opened with a simple text editor however editing or modifying it that way won't help especially if you don't have the file extension dat software to make it function properly.
I discovered driver cure and it solved all my software and file extension dat problems. I don't need to install so many software or plug-in in my pc by having this driver.

Our favorite boxing hero in the Philippines Manny Pacquiao will have another fight this year and this time with Miguel Cotto on November 14, 2009 . I think this will be his last fight for the year because he intends to run for a government position next year. If he wins a government position I think this will be his last fight. He had been interviewed before and he shows interest of retiring from boxing soon.
A couple of days ago I saw this horrible video of a nanny and one of the kids left for her care. I guess the parents were worried that something bad was happening to their kids while they are away and so they installed this surveillance cam.
I was so shocked to see how this nanny physically abused the child. I think the kid was 3 or 4 years old. The nanny kicked the child on the back and the kid dropped on the floor face down. She wasn't even contented with that she kicked the girl again on the face and then jumped on its back while squeezing the little girls ears. She kicked her so many times I don't know what permanent damage it will cause on the child. It was the scariest sight a parent could ever see. Good thing the parents immediately installed a surveillance cam and prevented the worst case scenario ever.

Age is just numbers, but if you don't take care of your health and wellbeing your body will tell you how old you are. Here's some nice tips you can use to stay young and defy age.
1. Throw out nonessential numbers.
This includes age, weight and height.
Let the doctors worry about them.
that's why you pay them.
2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.
(keep this in mind if you are one of
3. Keep learning:
Learn more about the computer, crafts,
gardening, whatever. Never let the brain
"An idle mind is the devil's workshop."
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5.. Laugh often, long and loud.
Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes
you laugh, spend lots and lots of time
6. The tears happen:
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with us
our entire life, is ourself.
LIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love:
Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes,
music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can
improve, get help.
9. Don't take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next
county, to a foreign country, but NOT to
where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that
you love them at every opportunity!

Slander, the false statement that maliciously ruins reputations, does not stalk alone. Its associate is the heart-attitude of arrogance. Arrogant people think that they have the right to exalt themselves by speaking ill of others. Wherever you see one of these ugly companions, the other is lurking nearby; both are dangerous and neither can be trusted. There is no limit to the authorities which such people will try to topple by their bad-speaking. As with every evil act, there is no satisfaction in being 'a little bad', and without repentance, sin will escalate until it engulfs its perpetrators.
Almighty God. Although it would be nice to think that everybody around me is reasonable and trustworthy, I know that is not so. I now pray for those whose arrogance seems unlimited, and who have no fear of anybody or even of Your authority. Please bring them to repentance and faith, before they face Your judgement. And please give wisdom and courage to my spiritual leaders so that they may guard the flock against the arrogant slander of those who seek to gain influence in the church. For Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.

Dear Lord God. Thank You for alerting me to those parts of my character that may not yet be fully given over to You. Please help me to see myself as you see me, and help me to choose not to follow the corruption that is in the world, nor to have a rebellious and proud heart. Where these things have become part of my character, help me to repent and choose to follow Jesus. I also pray for my friends and colleagues who have little idea of the judgement that awaits them; please bring them to salvation and enable me to be a good witness to the transforming power of Christ. In His Name. Amen.
You may not be worrying about retirement right now because you believe it's too early for you to worry about it. But believe me you can never be too early thinking about your financial future.
Among the things you can do is invest your money on stocks and bonds by opening an Individual Retirement Account or IRA. An IRA is the best investment you can have during retirement because this can help you earn and save at the same time.
Gold is the most powerful metal and investment anyone could ever have. It never loses its value but instead increase in time especially if you are holding the purest of them all.
If you have an IRA, you can ask your banks on how to put gold in an IRA. This is one good investment aside from the stock certificates and bonds you have. Although I believe banks have different rules when it comes to Gold IRA transfers.

Do you decide with your head or with your heart? If your heart says you were right but your head says you are not did you make the wrong decision or what?
"Rightly or wrongly ..." a friend was heard to say, "I made the decision". He implied that it was better to make any decision than not to decide at all. Alas too many businesses get trapped by decisions that they were not ready to make, and regret afterwards.
Peter wants his readers, Christians who would suffer for the Name of Jesus, to understand that they will be vindicated in the end. Taking the example of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all the wickedness they represented, (cf Gen 19:1-29) Peter says that God knew how to rescue Lot and punish his neighbours. This is important. There is no suggestion that Lot had any idea that God had him and the city in such sharp focus. And however much the wrong attitudes and actions around him must have grieved Lot, he could not have imagined how God would sort it all out. But God did.
Some of our doubting, in situations that seem insoluble, stems from forgetting that God knows how to decide and separate the fate of the godly from that of the ungodly. If we ignore this truth, we will either be panicked into sorting it out ourselves, or despair because we cannot see how God can do anything, or end up joining the wicked (at least in thought) because we blur the distinction which God sees very sharply. If we are to live godly lives in a wicked world, we need to be certain that God knows all about it, and that in the end, He will know how to rescue the righteous, and bring the reward of punishment to the unrighteous. So, do not falter or alter your course away from Jesus! God always gets it right! And, please share these verses with your Christian friends and colleagues - without this encouragement we can all be tempted away from trusting the Lord when life is tough.
Prayer: Dear Lord. Thank You that You really do know how to make the right decisions. And also that You will rescue those who love You. I believe that you will do this at the end of time, but I am grateful that Your hand of kindness and protection is upon me now, as well. Please forgive me when I doubt that You know what You are doing. Help me to trust that You will always do the right thing, at the right time. For Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.

If everyone could stay in an upbeat attitude then I guess we will all live longer and healthier. Life's stresses push us to do things that we think will relieve us but in the end they become a burden than real help.
"Happiness does not lengthen the life of seriously ill people, but it does prolong the life of healthy people. Happiness appears to protect against falling ill. One of the mechanisms behind that effect seems to be that chronic unhappiness causes stress, which on its turn reduces immune response."
