I've been waiting for this for so long! finally finally! and by next week i will be assigned to do some balloon decor at our clubhouse for the fiesta wow it'll be my first event ever!(I've done labor of love for birthday parties only) hehe hope papa will let me buy electric balloon inflator so i will be able to pump all the balloons with a smile!!haha aside from that event, is my hubby's birthday so ill make a special one for him,sana i can still manage! wow it'll gonna be a big step forward for my ballooning tomorrow, i hope to learn a lot from it and make it in good use agad. My best friend and i are planning to put up a party business and i just hope it will happen this year.

My target for this year is to have a business of my own,to be productive and to learn more and more!i know i can't do everything i want...of all the talents (that i can put into good use) and options i have, its still difficult on where really is my niche, i know I'll try to be successful in everything i do but I'm hoping to find the one path where i could really stay the longest and be successful in it,where i can feel fulfilled (career wise!)every minute of it. I missed the fulfillment I've felt when i was still flying, when i was still at the airport but i have to give it up for my boys( no regrets though coz between flying and my boys ofcourse i will gladly choose my boys!) well, it's still not the end of my flying i hope someday, i'll fly agen and my boys also :) in the future why not! for now, businesses muna! have to create businesses! one at a time, i know it will all happen, its for my boys future so hubby and i have to work hard on it. and so before i reach my 30th year of existence, must have atleast one business established! from there i know the rest will follow. nothing's impossible if you believe! and i believe! amen!

How emotionally mature am i?

You Are 100% Grown Up, 0% Kid

Your emotional maturity is fully developed, and you have an excellent grasp on your emotions.

You're honest, direct, and compassionate. You don't let a bad mood get the best of you.

People know that they can turn to you in times of trouble. You are stable and smart.

In fact, you are so emotionally mature - you should consider being a therapist!

what is the purpose of life?

i received a forwarded email from my sister in law...i'd like to share this ,its is nice

This is something really worth reading and sharing!

An Interview with Rick Warren (REMEMBER, HE WROTE 'PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE')

You will enjoy the new insights that Rick Warren has, with his wife now having cancer and him having 'wealth' from the book sales. This is an absolutely incredible short interview with Rick Warren, 'Purpose Driven Life ' author and pastor of Saddleback Church in California

In the interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren, Rick said:

People ask me, What is the purpose of life?

And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven.

One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body-- but not the end of me. I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act - the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity.

We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn't going to make sense.

Life is a series of problems: Either you are in one now, you're just coming out of one, or you're getting ready to go into another one. The reason for this is that God is more interested in your character than your comfort; God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy.

We can be reasonably happy here on earth, but that's not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character, in Christ likeness. This past year has been the greatest year of my life but also the toughest, with my wife, Kay, getting cancer.
I used to think that life was hills and valleys - you go through a dark time, then you go to the mountaintop, back and forth. I don't believe that anymore. Rather than life being hills and valleys, I believe that it's kind of like two rails on a railroad track, and at all times you have something good and something bad in your life. No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on.. And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for..

You can focus on your purposes, or you can focus on your problems: If you focus on your problems, you're going into self-centeredness, which is my problem, my issues, my pain.' But one of the easiest ways to get rid of pain is to get your focus off yourself and onto God and others.

We discovered quickly that in spite of the prayers of hundreds of thousands of people, God was not going to heal Kay or make it easy for her- It has been very difficult for her, and yet God has strengthened her character, given her a ministry of helping other people, given her a testimony, drawn her closer to Him and to people.

You have to learn to deal with both the good and the bad of life.

Actually, sometimes learning to deal with the good is harder. For instance, this past year, all of a sudden, when the book sold 15 million copies, it made me instantly very wealthy. It also brought a lot of notoriety that I had never had to deal with before.. I don't think God gives you money or notoriety for your own ego or for you to live a life of ease.
So I began to ask God what He wanted me to do with this money, notoriety and influence. He gave me two different passages that helped me decide what to do, II Corinthians 9 and Psalm 72.

First, in spite of all the money coming in, we would not change our lifestyle one bit.. We made no major purchases.

Second, about midway through last year, I stopped taking a salary from the church..

Third, we set up foundations to fund an initiative we call The Peace Plan to plant churches, equip leaders, assist the poor, care for the sick, and educate the next generation.

Fourth, I added up all that the church had paid me in the 24 years since I started the church, and I gave it all back. It was liberating to be able to serve God for free.

We need to ask ourselves: Am I going to live for possessions? Popularity? Am I going to be driven by pressures? Guilt? Bitterness? Materialism? Or am I going to be driven by God's purposes (for my life)?

When I get up in the morning, I sit on the side of my bed and say, God, if I don't get anything else done today, I want to know You more and love You better. God didn't put me on earth just to fulfill a to-do list. He's more interested in what I am than what I do. That's why we're called human beings, not human doings.

Happy moments, PRAISE GOD.
Difficult moments, SEEK GOD.
Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD.
Painful moments, TRUST GOD.
Every moment, THANK GOD..

If you do not pass it on, nothing will happen. But it will just be nice to pass it on to a friend...just like I have done.

God's Blessings?
