Two Sleeps More
         I cant wait for this.... my husband promised to paint the wall of our bedroom. He decided to paint it by himself. Getting laborer for the painting will cost much. I want to be surprised what paint he will use and the color..... Surprise!
        Painting it does not only make the room alive but also it will protect the walls and the ceiling.

Oh My God, My Teener
Having high school children at home is interesting, annoying and heart breaking. This is crucial stage in life. Teenagers  thought they are big enough to decide for themselves but too careless to be responsible in their actions. They thought they are always in the right track and parents or adults are antagonist and kill joy.

At home we have 2 high schoolers a boy and a girl. They annoyed me sometimes especially when they play sound so loud and choose Music that you think do not suggest lesson in life. If tell them to slow the tune down they will just ignore. There are more  annoying experiences in rearing grown up kids that "Oh my God, test our patient. That if you do not handle carefully would lead to clash of principles and they;ll look at you as such primitive old people. They broke our heart into pieces because we also look at ourselves as person of authority.
      Parents should be wise enough in handling teenagers. In a way that it should not be too slack and not so strict. Either of these might cause negative effect to our youth. Too slack may lead them to be liberated and be led astray. Too strict and tight may lead them to rebellion. We should sometimes go down to their level so that we may understand them. But the best way to rear up young ones is through the word of God ( Ephesians 6:4, Parents do not bring your children to anger but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.)
     Indeed parenting  teens is a challenge and we could beat this with God's help.


The Lord is my shepherd I shall lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pasture . He leads me beside quite waters.

Psalm 23:1&2
This verse reminds me always that I have a good Shepherd my God. I don't have to worry about anything.

shoe plea

Worn out by time, frequent rain and a harsh feet. These shoes did not escape the calamity. Even how they wanted to serve their masters. They are too weak and frail to do that. Their lives have endings.They're sadden to say good bye but they have to do it. Before they leave and rest for good. They are begging, "Please buy me a SUBSTITUTE!".

Costumes for Girls

Costume for Girls

My youngest daughter Hannah excitedly handed me a letter when she arrived from school. The letter was to inform parents about the 7the foundation day of their school. In the letter they stated the costume to wear by the Pre-Schooler. Costume of Disneyland character... It became a problem. Should I buy a ready made? It might be costly. Should I go to the dressmaker and let her saw a costume or look for costume for rent? It is mind boggling especially for busy moms.

Away from Home

Being away from home is a lonely experience especially when you are alone leaving your family behind. But on the other hand it could be enjoyable because you will be visiting new places, meet old and new faces and gain new experiences.

It's good that there are accommodating people to accommodate you in a comfortable billeting places where you can relax, enjoy and forget for a while the comfort of home after tiring works during conferences or seminars.

It was wonderful adventure when the PAESPA (Philippine Association for Elementary School Paper Adviser) Executive Officers with the Regional President held its annual workshop in Cebu, then side trip to Bohol. A travel agency facilitated our trip that made our escapade a grand one.

Music Lover

My little girl Juwella really love Music especially playing musical instrument. I was glad that their school offered a "rondalla" for the children who have interest in Music. She joined the group she was given the chance to play "banduria" since she has little and shorter fingers. I was very surprised that she can memorize a music piece for just a short time.

Last summer we had her enrolled in piano lesson. She had her recital. She was excited to perform but I was more excited for her. With music she can build self discipline and confidence.

I passed this way again

I Passed this Way Again
A rugged road going to Tuburan, Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines

A wonderful view overlooking the river connecting Southwest and West of the City
It rings into my mind, the song " I'll never pass this way again". It is opposite to what
I always long to experience once again-" passing that way again"
It is barely7 years now after the last time I passed by this familiar rugged road going to Tuburan, one of the rural community in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines. I was assigned as a Public School Teacher in this place way back June 2002 . Though the road is not cemented and stones are scattered all over the way. The hilly that made our motorcycle sway. Especially during rainy season the sticky muds that made my husband grip hard in the handle of motor.
These difficulties are nothing compared to the beauty you will enjoy when you reach the hill of Pangantukan a neighboring barangay. What a glorious sight!
It might not be exactly the same as I viewed it before but I still noticed it could be a wonderful escape from the pollution of the city. The serenity of the place and natural air will really captivate your heart and relax your mind.

I never thought I could pass this way again. Thanks to my husband who made this possible through God's divine purpose. I am praying to pass this way over and over again.

The Joy of My Desire

My Joy
My joy is in loving,
People even the unlovable,
That I in my act of loving
God is glorified

(Taken during our Christmas giving to the least fortunate people. They were very happy. Giving to others bring joy to us)

My joy is in sharing
Whatever I may have
That I may give freely
Without expecting any reward.

My joy is in caring
For other who may need it
The comfort and joy it may give them
Give hope and life.

My joy is in knowing
Everything that can help me grow
So when my life on earth is done
My joy can be perfect in Him alone

Meet Hannah my youngest girl who is fun of anything that made her clothes full of stain after

My youngest girl is so active and playful. She tries to explore things play with it manipulate it. Plant leaves, paints, my cosmetics-nail polish, eye shadows and lipstick nothing can escape from her imaginative world and fun. After those activities expect to wash clothes full of stains. It made my back ache scrubbing all those blemishes left on her clothes.

Solution ? To surf tips on how to remove stains and dirts without fading the color of clothes or making it still look not worn out.


Things You'll Need:

  • Soap
  • Detergent
  • Ice
  • Dry cleaning fluid
  • Ammonia
  1. Step 1

    Let's start with grease stains. Most grease stains can be removed by simply rubbing them well with soap or detergent and then washing the clothing in hot, soapy water. If, however, any grease stain still remains, try to sponge the stain with dry cleaning fluid. This should remove any remaining stains from your clothes.

  2. Step 2

    Next let's look into how to remove gum from clothes. First, you'll want to chill the stain with ice until the gum easily rolls into a ball when scraped. Then you should sponge off the remaining stain with dry cleaning fluid, wash in warm soapy water, and rinse well to fully remove the stains from your clothes.

  3. Step 3

    Another common clothing stain is from ink. First, you'll want to rinse the clothing in cool water, and then wash it in hot soapy water with a few drops of ammonia added and rinse well afterwards. If any stain still remains, add 3 tablespoons of oxalic acid crystals to 1 pint of water, and soak for 15 minutes. Follow this with a good rinse of water mixed with a few drops of ammonia. It's amazing how well ammonia works to remove stains from clothes!

  4. Step 4

    A common clothing stain for women comes from their best friend: lipstick. To remove lipstick stains from clothes, you must sponge the lipstick spot with dry cleaning fluid, wash the clothes with warm soapy water, and rinse well.

  5. Step 5

    Another common clothing stain for women comes from nail polish. To remove this stain from clothes, you need to first soak the stain with acetone or any nail polish remover. Then wash the clothing in warm soapy water and rinse well.

  6. Step 6

    Now here's a good stain for men and women: paint. To remove paint stains from clothes, first try to remove as much of the fresh paint as possible from the clothing. Then rub the stain with dry cleaning fluid or pure turpentine, wash in warm soapy water, and rinse well.

  7. Step 7

    Another common stain that needs to be removed from clothing is from blood. To remove blood stains from clothes, you'll need to soak the fresh stain in cold water until the stain turns light brown. Then wash the clothing in warm soapy water. If any stain remains, soak the clothing in a mixture of 2 tablespoons of ammonia to each gallon of water for 15 minutes. Then wash and rinse.

  8. Step 8

    To remove coffee and tea stains from clothes, you should first soak the stain in warm soapy water and then wash the clothes as you normally do. If any stain remains, try bleaching the stain with chlorine bleach and sponging the stain with dry cleaning fluid if there was any cream in the coffee.

  9. Step 9

    To remove fruit stains from clothes, stretch the stained clothing over a bowl and pour boiling water over the stain. You may have to repeat this process several times before you wash and rinse. If any stain remains, try using some household bleach.

  10. Step 10

    Lastly, a very common stain for kids is the all too familiar grass stain. To remove grass stains from clothes, first rub soap into the stain and scrub. Then wash the clothing in hot soapy water. If any stain remains, you can try to bleach the clothing in a solution of 1 teaspoon sodium perborate to one pint hydrogen peroxide. You'll want to be sure to first test this solution on an inconspicuous part of the clothing. If the solution tests safely on the clothing, soak it for a half an hour or longer and rinse well.

Overcome it in a way that it would be glorifying to God.

Stress Management: How to Reduce, Prevent, and Cope with Stress

Wednesday, July 28, 2010



It was dawn of September 3, 1972, when a baby girl was born to a wonderful couple on that time. Her mother chose to call her Mary Junneth, Junneth is a combination of Junnie her father and Nonette her Mother, to make the name Christian as Filipinos see to it that every child's name is in the list of names found in the bible they placed Mary in the beginning.

My mother raised us (4) kids alone. When I turned 5 years old, the relationship of my father and mother became shaky and ended up in broken marriage. Our mother worked hard to rear us up in the way we should. She worked hard to sent us to school, to fed us, to cloth us, and even provided us extra needs. she also never forgot to inculcate values to us.

As I grew up I learned life. I like reading books. I also like cooking and baking (although I did not learned it from my mother, my aunt cook every time she cook I observed her. I learned the craft). I also like composing short stories, writing feature stories and poetry. I like to discover things and how they are done.

I like studying Philippine History so I can have more idea on how our culture had became and trace my roots.

I am also into searching.. researching things and topics using the internet so I can learn more as I believe that "Learning is a continues process."

Victory Over Pain

Winning it Over.....my mother still can smile comforted even stricken with 2 Big C's

It was May to July when my mother fought the battle of cancer.It was still fresh in my memory how she won it over...not to survive the ordeal but to won over the pains and sufferings brought by this deadliest disease among women the " cervical cancer".

Many friends and relatives who had witnessed a cancer patients themselves, wonder why my mother never cried for pain or gnashed her teeth as a sign of suffering. But instead she just hummed praise and worship song for God. We might conclude that it is by her strength that enabled her to do that. Certainly not! I believe that behind those pains God's comfort was perfect for her. That is why amidst of it she can still sing and praise God. Who became "the joy of her salvation."
