no matter how far!

God really works in ways that we dont understand,last night we found out that our dear friend's father just passed away a day after our saviour was born, so we come up with a quick plan to set up memorial service for him,too sad she couldn't be there physically to see his father and to be with the rest of her family, but we praised GOD for his unfailing love, it was around 3:30 at springhills baptist church together with Pastor Jeff Pound, who has been a missionary in the philippines for quite awhile and can speak the language fluently,We thank GOD above all for orchestrating everything,providing our dear friends with what she really needs this time of her life, a comforting joy,a calming peace that comes from GOD alone.

As I survey the political scene of America, I continue to get the sense that people are tired of harsh and divisive politics in America. The tone of our continuing political dialogue is more about yelling and less about discussing and listening. People seem occupied with seeing who can stand the firmest and shout the loudest.
The tone of political discussion in America has a certain flow to it. It's been this way since our founding. We are at a point in history where the tone of our dialogue has hit a harsh and negative flow. Such a time calls for a leader with the right touch. Mike Huckabee has the right touch!
I fear that many are willing to exchange a politician who has firm resolve for a wishy washy person who will leave us feeling good, but also will leave our nation in disorder in the end.
Mike Huckabee has the right touch for America. Mike Huckabee is firm in his views and beliefs, but he is not divisive. Anyone could see this from his reply during the debate when they asked him about his religious beliefs.
Some Democrats talk about not using faith to divide America. Mike Huckabee is an actual politician who has not used his faith to divide us. Mike knows where he stands, but he gives you freedom to stand where you choose.

This is the kind of leader we need in America now.
Vote Mike Huckabee in 2008.

holiday means to me

What The Holidays Mean to You

For you, the holidays are about generosity. You give as much as you possibly can to friends, family, and charity.

You celebrate the holidays in a natural style. Homemade gifts are your favorite, and you can't stand imitation Christmas trees or wreaths

During the holidays, you feel happily busy. There's so much do to and not a lot of time to do it. But you enjoy every minute of your holiday chores.

You think the holidays should be nostalgic and sweet. The holidays bring out your inner child.

Your favorite holiday memories strongly evoke your senses. You are vividly aware of all the tastes, smells, and sounds of the holidays.

a long fun day..

Yesterday was a real good day, we actually woke up late but then decided to take a walk together since the weather outside was real nice, we took a walk to the farm and just praising GOD for the beauty of his creation.went back home and decided to visit the family since the cousins are there to spend thier holidays with our family.We decided to play "RISK" (just click the link if your curious what the game is) since im new to this game, have to observe first and know how to play it an hubby said, im gonna be his "roller", we got a lot of luck since i am the one who roll the dice ( i tell yah it was alot of fun), since im good at it, jacobs brother ask if i could roll the dice for him but hubby jokingly told him "you should get a wife then! " we started the game around 1:30 and finish it around 5:30 pretty long huh but not boring, its fun to fight,conquer and capture some territories from other players.
and the result? we aimed for 1st place but we ended up 2nd place.
not to shabby at all.

Thanks mommyjen....
Thumbs up for AWESOME mom's....

You Will Be a Cool Parent

You seem to naturally know a lot about parenting, and you know what kids need.
You can tell when it's time to let kids off the hook, and when it's time to lay down the law.
While your parenting is modern and hip, it's not over the top.
You know that there's nothing cool about a parent who acts like a teenager... or a drill sergeant!

my star sign

fun quiz for myspace profile and blog

Lets101 Quizzes - Fun Quizzes

i actually snagged this one from jenny's page, im kind curious about my star sign.

GOD revealed himself to us..

Yesterday was a spectacular day even if it started with just a little bit crotchetiness,
i woke up expecting to have the whole day with pure fun with hubby, but end up being cranky because of his relaxation time, i mean his relaxation time is playing football with his brother that turns out a 2 and half hour session, then when he called me saying im done, ill be home in a minute, My response is,
yeah, you should be done now, it took you 2 and half hours, i timed you Mr. Brooks!

But, still came home happy giving me a smile that just take my crankiness away..whew, and now we have to plan our day together, we actually agreed that maybe we could go christmas shopping for the family, but just before we left the house he ruined my shopping mood already, simply by telling me, i dont wanna do something today, im not in a shopping mood, but then he take it back by simply saying, but ill be your driver, we went to get some gift cards from texas road house and eat some burito at chipotle and got some giftcards too for our g-pa & g-ma its the time of the year that they got to try something new.

We rushed to shop something for the birthday girl jessica at kohls, but have to call jenny for the size, its a funny convos with jenny, hearing myself say something funny..hahaha, but thanks that my mouth slips that time, coz im actually in a bad mood already, since i saw hubby sitting in the corner, imagine in the floor near the wall, and i said, stand up, your embarassing,
and he said,
i told you im not in a shopping mood im tired ( usually he likes to shop thats why i was pissed off)i understand though..he worked very hard but still...arrgggh..

so i told him to wait for me in the car and he did,but im feeling sorry for what i did to him and so i end up my shopping thing. on our way to the parking lot, an old lady ask jacob to help her loading her vacuum cleaner on the trunk and so hubby said YES with a smile, so i smile and said, im blessed to have husband like that...
inside the car,no one said a word, until he told me he lost his wedding band...and im like what? oh oh noooo...but he was hoping its in the house, but, i told him i actually ask you before we leave the house if you have your wedding band with you and you said yeah right? but were still hoping its in the house.

As soon as we arrived the house, we keep on looking but we cant find it, so we called kohls and ask them to lool for the wedding band, but still we wanna make sure, so after we called we went there again, on our way there, hubby joked around and said, "we really like kohls hah" we've been here twice today, (laughing is a good remedy)

We tried our very best to search it at parking lot, we dont get a luck, we were thinking maybe its on the lady's trunk, so we headed to the costumers service at kohls to tell them that we called a while ago for the lost wedding band, and tell them about helping one of the costumer here who bought a hover vacuum cleaner around 4pm, hoping if its her trunk she might call kohls and look for us. still got no luck,

On our way home, hubby said, no one will know that i lost my wedding band ok, even the family, then i said ok, we went home feeling bad, hubby said we have to go mom and dad's for us to decorate the 12 feet tall christmas tree, they have a tradition in their family, each of them has their own ornaments from the time that they were 1 year old, so each year they have one ornament, hubby is 26 already so he has 26 ornaments and mom got us two penguins sitting in a wedding band ( pic's later ) kinda cool huh! just lost a wedding band, but the family doen'st even know about we had fun, despite losing the wedding band..huhuhuhu, we came home around 10:30 and went to bed around 10:40,just before going to bed its our thing together to pray before GOD,
hubby's prayer went something like this!( as far as i can remember),
we thank you for a very good family that im a part of and now michelle can be a part of it, and thank you for a very good wife, help us to be aware ( prayer continues, cant remember it all ) and GOD help us to find the wedding band, whoever got the wedding band, we hoped and pray that they are honest and trustworthy people AMEN,

Just a split of seconds our phone ring around 10:56pm,we dont even recognize the number we dont have it on our buddy list, but i have that thing going on in my mind, that maybe its the answer of what weve prayed for, on the other line is a lady and she said, is this jacob brooks? and hubby said yes, the lady said we just found your ring and oh my gosh i cant help myself but just shout YES thank you GOD,and we just got soo excited and take our sleepyness away. we just witnessed how powerful the GOD whom we served, hubby said, we need to PRAY, and i prayed and just tahnk GOD for the prayers that he just answered, it is really wonderful...we are in awe of his majesty..

we called kohls again to find out if they were open till midnight, we cant wait to get the ring back, we drove down there again to get the ring and hoping to get the story where did they found the ring, we went to the jewelry section and ask for the ring and ask who found it,
the lady said,
i just got it from the costumer service department, it was taped up there, so i assumed that it was yours, here's your ring

we were like, oh my gosh its purely a GOD questioned ask, but we just thank GOD for giving us back the ring...
its time to celebrate so we had milkshake and burger at steak N shake...

who said GOD doen'st answer's prayers? he answered OUR's

pretty amazing story to tell people
now we dont have to hide that we lost the ring, we want to give GOD the glory,
so we need to tell the story

christmas time is here

Its the most wonderful time of the year.
Remember the lord our GOD this time of the year

a boring day

i woke up feeling grumpy...(not good)
have to go to an Otolaryngology for them to check up my throat, its been like 4 weeks, since i had this sore in my throat, i hate it, I've been to my doctor thrice, they couldn't figure out whats wrong with my throat thats why they have set up an appoinment for me to an ENT especialist,for them to ultrasound my throat. OH NO!...somethings really wrong..huhuhuhuSo have to wake up early today, but since im feeling grumpy and i dont want to go there by myself, feeling nervous of what will be the outcome of the test, but i already set up my mind if my husband can't take me there, i will cancel my appointment, i know its ridiculous but i prefer to have him by my side, since i feel safe when his with me, but he has to go to work and we thought that he can come home early for the appointment but OH BOY, its turns out he can't take me,My inlaws offer to give me a ride, but i prefer to have my husband on my side, so, i called the office and cancelled my appointment....

awesome GOD

Please read before viewing picture - it's worth it!
A picture began circulating in November. It should be "The Picture of the Year," or perhaps, "Picture of the Decade." It won't be. In fact,unless you obtained a copy of the US paper which published it, you probably would never have seen it.
The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by surgeon named Joseph Bruner.
The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother's womb. Little Samuel's mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta . She knew of Dr. Bruner's remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb.
During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr.Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger. Dr.Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.
The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, "Hand of Hope." The text explaining the picture begins, "The tiny hand of 21-week- old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother's u
terus to grasp the finger of Dr.. Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life." Little Samuel's mother said they "wept for days" when they saw the picture. She said, "The photo reminds us pregnancy isn't about disability or an illness, it's about a little person."Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful.
Now see the actual picture, and it is awesome...incredible....and hey,pass it on. The world needs to see this one!

Don't tell me our God isn't an awesome God!!!!!

let me share this...

I was reading my devotional today, and i would like to share some of things that GOD had taught me. since my bible study group started a chapter in acts every sunday, im gettin pretty psyched to study acts too,we studied acts chapter 3 last sunday and we are astounded by the miracles that was presented in the book of acts and how bold peter and john to declare that GOD is indeed a GOD of healing and power which we know for a fact that they are forbidden to talked about the GOD whom they served,and as we were talking about it last sunday, i was comtemplating about the verse that struck me;

3When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. 4Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!" 5So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
6Then Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."

Sometimes we are like the crippled beggar, we ask for money coz and we aimed for the alms. we tend to view GOD also as a vending machine, if we like to get coke,we put the coins in and get what we want, if the vending machine doen'st work properly we get frustrated, the beggar wants money from peter and john, but john and peter did not give him what he wanted/expected. they give him more than what he ask for. so many times in our lives we ask GOD to give us something and when we dont recieve the specific thing that we ask from him we tend to think that he did not hear our plea, we need to check our motives first when we ask for something and rejoice while waiting patiently for the answers of our prayers, HE answers our prayers, all we need to do is wait and trust in him, remember the answers may not be the answers that we want,but know that he give us the answers that he knows whats best for us..

You are so dear to my heart,

Man of my dreams ,you were to my life

my heart as my own.

You're the man of my dreams,

i know its ridiculous to let you know that,
here in my heart i love you.

A Life Poem Life can seem ungrateful and not always kind.

Life can pull at your heartstrings and play with your mind...

Life can be blissful and happy and free...

Life can put beauty in the things that you see...

Life can place challenges right at your feet...

Life can make good of the hardships we meet...

Life can overwhelm you and make your head spin...

Life can reward those determined to win...

Life can be hurtful and not always fair...

Life can surround you with people who care...

Life clearly does offer its Up and its Downs...

Life's days can bring you both smiles and frowns...

Life teaches us to take the good with the bad...

Life is a mixture of happy and sad...

So... Take the Life that you have and give it your best...

Think positive, be happy let God do the rest...

Take the challenges that life has laid at your feet...

Take pride and be thankful for each one you meet...

To yourself give forgiveness if you stumble and fall...

Take each day that is dealt you and give it your all...

Take the love that you're given and return it with care...

Have faith that when needed it will always be there...

Take time to find the beauty in the things that you see...

Take life's simple pleasures let them set your heart free...

The idea here is simply to even the score...

As you are met and faced with Life's Tug of War

can babies count on you?

What Makes a Mother

*I thought of you and closed my eyes And prayed to God today.
I asked what makes a Mother and I know I heard him say.
A mother has a baby, this we know is true.
But God, can you be a Mother when your baby's not with you?
Yes, you can He replied with confidence in His voice.
I give many women babies ,when they leave is not their choice.
Some I send for a lifetime and others for a day.
And some I send to feel your womb but there's no need to stay.
I just don't understand this, God I want my baby here.
He took a breath and cleared His throat and then I saw a tear.
I wish I could show you what your child is doing today.
If you could see your child smile with other children and say...
"We go to earth and learn our lessons of love and life and fear.
My Mommy loved me oh so much,
I got to come straight here.
I feel so lucky to have a Mom who had so much love for me
I learned my lessons very quickly my Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much but I visit her each day.
When she goes to sleep, on her pillow is where I lay.
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek and whisper in her ear.
Mommy don't be sad today I'm your baby and I'm here.
"So you see my dear sweet one,
your children are ok Your babies are here in My home
and this is where they'll stay.
They'll wait for you with me until your lesson there is through.
And on the day that you come home they'll be at the gates for you.
So now you see what makes a mother,
it's the feeling in your heart.
It's the love you had so much of right from the very start.
Though some on earth may not realize until their time is done.
Remember all the love you have and know that you are a special Mom!

my world,my family just got expanded..

I am sitting at my home here in Ohio telling you about my life today. My world is a big one, I was born as I was raised in the
tropics of the Philippines but
now face the daily weather change of the midwest U.S. I am a woman of many words, speaking both major Filipino dialects
(Tagalog and Bisaya) along with
impeccable english and a hint of Japanese,Maybe tomorrow I will learn some Russian, Arabic, or Swahili.No not really, I am actually a well
grounded humble Christian woman who loves to live my faith following Christ.I thank Him alone, my Creator,for all my talents
including my linguistics
skills. I am very much a happily married woman, and for the most part I delight in my new life here in America along with my
handsome young husband
I have dabbled in the personal blogosphere in the past, but now I am extremely excited to make a daily home on this blog of
mine. I want to put
a little bit of everything here, my thoughts, my experiences, and maybe even some great advice about being a Filipina-
American, and what life is like for me
facing this American experience which is sooo far from my home.However, Ohio is truly my second home, I realize something
new everyday.My first day in
America I realized what it feels like to start to freeze. When I stepped off that international flight in Detroit in early February it was
co0-ld yet I
loved it, I love the adventure my life has become. Marriage too is quite the adventure. I am a tender spirit yet at the same time I am a
survivor, my name is
Michelle Brooks and this is my blog.
