Word Filled Wednesday: Ephesians 1:6

This was in eternity past. Before He created us, God chose us according to His infinite foresight. This implies that the world, which is the universe, was founded for man's existence to fulfill God's eternal purpose.

Love here refers to the love with which God loves His chosen ones and His chosen ones love Him. It is in this love, in such a love, that God's chosen ones become holy and without blemish before Him. First, God loved us; then this divine love inspires us to love Him in return. In such a condition and atmosphere of love, we are saturated with God to be holy and without blemish, just as He is.

Yummy Sunday: My Favorite Food

It's my first time to join this meme. Perfectly Blended is hosting this beautiful meme and I find it nice to play along. After all I love food!

As this is my first entry on YS, I'd like to share to you my Favorite Food. I really love Japanese Food. My favorite among them are Sushi and Sashimi. I love the fresh fishy stuff so much. Oishi!!! I love it more when I smell the wasabi and have it tasted with the soy sauce and the Kalamansi. So yummy , yummy , yummy. It's a Yummy Sunday anyway.

My mouth waters most of the mix set of sushi and sashimi. I love the tuna, the salmon and everything on it. I even love the kani and stuff. When I was on the first trimester, my pocket aches as I always tried to grab a handful set and ate a lot of them.

Mix set, ah makes me hungry over and over again

Salmon Sashimi makes my mouth waters..

The Cross Is Not a Suffering but a Termination

1Cor 1:18 For the word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
Gal 2: 20 I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Many Christians have a misunderstanding concerning the cross. They think that to take up the cross is to suffer hardship. This was my concept for many years ago. I told others that the difficulties in their environment were a cross to them. For example, if your husband or wife is troubling you, that is a cross. But when the Lord Jesus speaks of taking up the cross, He does not mean this. He means that we should apply the cross to our living. The real significance of the cross is not suffering--it is termination. Crucifixion, therefore, equals death, termination.

For us to take up the cross is for us to be terminated. I wish to emphasize the fact that the cross is for termination, not for suffering. Sometimes believers are not helped by suffering. I have known certain persons who suffered a great deal with the result that they became strongly self-willed.
[They can also become complaining and bitter]

The concept that the cross is a matter of suffering is contrary to the revelation of the Lord's word in 8:34. Here the Lord speaks of denying the self. To deny the self is to give it up; it is not to keep the self so that it may suffer. Taking up the cross is not a matter of suffering. Instead, it is a matter of applying to our life what Christ has done on the cross to terminate us. Therefore, to take up the cross is to apply this termination to ourselves. Day by day we need to apply such a termination. If we do this, we shall realize not that we are suffering, but that we are terminated, finished, put to an end.

Cold Cream Cleanser

My mom would always tell me that when you are in front of a pc the whole day, you should not wash your face as it would damage your eyes. I was even told not to dip my hands in cold water to avoid muscle spasms. Well, I have been stubborn and kept on doing the opposite. Lately, I was experiencing that my eye prescription is getting higher and my vision gets mushy and cloudy. Probably because of facing the pc the whole day at work. I decided then to practice what my mama advised me.

It doesn't mean that I am not cleaning my face anymore. Of course whoever does not want to get rid of dirt from the face. I dont want to sleep having an oily and gooey with dusts, make-ups and air pollutants camping over my face. Ponds Cold cream cleanser has been very helpful so far. It deeply cleanse my pores removing the deep-seated stubborn dirts leaving my skin soft and clean. It can even remove make-ups and mascara. It's easy to use. Just apply a little amount of cream over the face and neck, massage a little and wipe it out with a clean cloth, cotton or tissue. You would see how dirty your face could be on the wiping material you are using.

I don't have to worry about not washing with water every night. I still get my soft, smooth and radiantly cleaned face. Thanks to my mother who introuduced this product to me. Actually she was using it ever since she started to work in front of a pc for a whole day. If you have a job like mine why don't you try to clean your face with ponds cold cream cleanser and have a smooth clean face plus a healthy vision.

Tuesday Couch Potato: While You Were Sleeping

This is my first time to join this wonderful meme which I have seen at my cousin's post in Loveshaven.. Creator of this meme is kikamz of Just About Anything. Got interested to join as actually this Tuesday's theme: Sandra Bullock's movies is very timely to my being a couch potato last long weekend. I just stayed at home from Saturday to Monday and had my movie marathon.

One of the movies I had watched was my favorite, While You Were Sleeping, a story of love at second sight, starred by Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman. I fell in love with this movie, way back 1995. It's a feel-good movie with enough lighthearted comedy to keep it from being maudlin. Sandra Bullock thinks she's in love with a man she's never really met, and after rescuing him from almost being run over by a train, his family mistakenly believes she's his fiancee. While he's in a coma, she finds true love in the form of his brother.I kept an old vcd of this and now I have a DVD copy. I swear this film is absolutely loved. I remember my cousin Yen made me watched it. I did not regret as it has been one of my favorite love story since then.

Are you being a couch potato last week too and love Sandra Bullock's movies? If so, click the banner above and be directed to the author's nice blog. Happy Tuesday!!!
