My Fave Toni's Blog

I love Toni’s if-books-were-food entry, then and now...

> It reawakened my bibliobby ( I refer to my hobby of reading books).

> Those mentioned added spice to my list of must-have books.

> It prompted me to allot a space in my mini-library for other authors.

Note: I was unable to join the book carnival, though. :-(

P.S. Happy 5th anniversary Ms. Toni! ^_^

My happiness

Indeed! Happiness can come from the simplest of things [toni]

Last August 2007 I made Happy, Jolly, Glad... Name it! where I list down the things that made me happy.

I believe, then and now, that happiness is relative. I now add it lingers no matter how short the duration I felt or realized it...It takes root from within... Is it also true to you?

Here is my renewed HAPPINESS list:
* a sound sleep and WAKING UP without being forced to
* reading Lucy Maud Montgomery's works
* mayonnaise
* unexpected text message from ---
* Approved loan application of my co-employees
(a Thank-you-God-moment for me)
* noticing how the cactus I bought grows
* seeing flowers bloom

I also find two blogs on happines that inspired me:
Treasures from Heaven and rejesus blog
(though these did not discussed happiness from simple things)

Letter to a Soldier

Lynel sent me this message thru SMS yesterday afternoon. It made me stop for a while and reflect.

Dear Soldier,

I see that you’re tired. I tell you, drop your sword and put down your shield. Why worry about the fight? After all it is not your battle; it is mine. All you have to do is to be in the battle field. Then against the thousands who tried to destroy you, there I will stand and rescue you. Winning this war requires neither only me nor only you. But rather, ME and YOU. Just do your best and I will take care of the rest.

Your commander,
Jesus Christ
