Do you believe that a higher power controls our fate or that we choose our own destinies?



I believe in a higher power creating my fate while allowing me to have the free will.

It's All About You Jesus

It's all about You, Jesus
And all this is for You
For Your glory and your fame
It's not about me
As if You should do things my way
You alone are God
And I surrender to your ways

Jesus, lover of my soul
All consuming fire is in Your gaze
Jesus, I want you to know
I will follow you all my days
For no one else in history is like you
And history itself belongs to you
Alpha and Omega, You have loved me
And I will share eternity with You

Love you Jay!

Proverbs 5:15-17 (NLT)

 15 Drink water from your own well—
      share your love only with your wife.[a]
 16 Why spill the water of your springs in the streets,
      having sex with just anyone?[b]
 17 You should reserve it for yourselves.
      Never share it with strangers.

18 Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you.
      Rejoice in the wife of your youth.
 19 She is a loving deer, a graceful doe.
      Let her breasts satisfy you always.
      May you always be captivated by her love.
 20 Why be captivated, my son, by an immoral woman,
      or fondle the breasts of a promiscuous woman?

 

God bless!

Notes: This was King Solomon's advice  to his son on the dangers of immoral love.
We all know about Solomon's 900+ wives right?.  =)

.....I'm an
ANGLOPHILE!


From wikipedia ....Quoted...
                         
An Anglophile is a person who is fond of
English culture and England in general. Its antonym is Anglophobe. Since 1707, the term has been more broadly used in the context of British culture and since 1800 to refer to the culture of the whole United Kingdom, rather than just England.[citation needed]

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word comes from French, and ultimately from Latin Anglus "English" + Ancient Greek φίλος - philos, "friend"). It gives the first use as occurring in 1867, where the journal Revue des deux mondes is described as a "thoroughly Anglophile journal".

In some cases, anglophilia represents an individual's preference for English culture over their own; the belief that English culture is superior; or an appreciation of English history.

Alongside anglophiles who are attracted to 'traditional' English culture (e.g. Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Dr. Johnson), there are also anglophiles who like pop and rock music from England, British cars, and its contemporary culture generally.

American anglophiles may use Englishspellings, such as 'colour' instead of 'color', 'grey' instead of 'gray', 'centre' instead of 'center', and 'realise' instead of 'realize'.

However! , i may have nothing to with this belief though ---->
"the belief that English culture is superior;" (Just saying) .

Here is a letter i wrote to a superior. I made it and figured i'd paste it here as sort of a memoriam. It has a story, but since i dont have the time to know how to make a cut of this post, i have decided to  tell the real story after this post. =) Here Goes.

June 04, 2008

 
Dear Ma’am Rosiel,

 
Good morning. Sagulan na lang nako ug bisaya ako isulti ma’am para mas sayun. I wrote this letter to inform you that I will no longer be able to extend my help with regard to helping you put into words the individual evaluation for each new Handumanan Personnel. I hope you will take the time to read the rest of this letter and hopefully understand my judgment on the matter. 

We are both aware of the incident about how I accidentally get  to read about the regularization papers of Jaja Ocampo and Aicelle. I was affected by it upon knowing the contents of it and thus it prompted me to call the attention of the HR personnel to make inquiries about the matter in connection to my own regularization. The matter has been settled, yes.  Weeks after that incident, I have received my own Personal Action Notice.  In there, reflected the amount of raise in pay for an employee basing on performance.  I never had expectations with regard to that.  I respected the evaluation given to me (having known that I was evaluated by THREE people -You, Mr. Lim, and MTA). I have no qualms about those as I respect what each of you see in my performance.  However, upon seeing the regularization papers of Jaja and Aicelle, I have been trying to COMPREHEND  how  their raise ( in those parameters) are  PROPORTIONATE to their performance which I personally have knowledge of as I personally heard from you  about how they do. I have assisted you in putting their evaluation into writing and how (as per your instruction), and I made it seem more acceptable.

That is all I wondered and tried comprehending about. As to WHY they have that amount, is not what interests me as It isn’t for me to question somebody else’s evaluation.  However, it has greatly affected my appetite for work. I believe that   HR matters really have a reason why certain facts ought to be confidential. As I was not given the authority (officially) to be “in the know” of such matters, I have decided not to be party to writing evaluations anymore. I am honored to be able to help you in that area, but for the sake of confidentiality, for the  avoidance of  any similar circumstance, and for my desire to remain working in the company  (in good spirits),  I believe this would be best for all concerned.  I appreciate your trust in my abilities. Thank you.

 
P.S.

 
Please know that I will still be very much willing to be of assistance to you if need be, when it comes to NON-HR matters.

  
Sincerely yours,

 
Karen

.....They're quite expensive ( Philippine Peso-wise). They fall in the category of self-help books.

  • Tiki Kustenmacher's  " How To Simplify Your Life: Seven Practical Steps to Letting Go of Your Burdens and Living a Happier Life"
  • Dale Carnegie's "How To Stop Worrying and Start Living"  (Time tested methods for conquering worry)
  • and!  Eileen Mulligan's  "Life Coaching for WORK" (The formula for Happiness and success at work.)
...Bought them in jut a span of a month. The first two books in line, i've already finished reading. They do help. After reading Dale Carnegie's book, i wanted to buy another of his that has something to do with WORK. I went on to look for it in the bookstore after work yesterday. I saw his book but later decided on buying something else. I changed my mind on buying that  book .  I usually read the back page and see what its about, But i went to look for more books and i found about the third (last) one . I figured, it has more of what i wanted to deal with work-wise, How to Deal with Office Politics. and stress.

I have relied on books for advice lately, aside from  relying on my own common sense and wisdom and other's opinions. Figured, they come from people with experience already and who work all their life figuring people's heads out tog. with their  behaviors, so why not read from them and see if it works for me too?.  I do plan on rereading them. I wanna invest on these books for i know it will help if not totally, at least to some extent. =). I mostly turn to God for help and ask him stuffs inc the WHYS ..., but so far, i've been doing the same routine for years now. I guess i just wait for him to do some sort of miracle, something, i shouldn't have waited on to. Something i already realized then ( but not fully) that it is  in me to change how i deal with life.

Have fun and Hi Shamus! *HUGS* =)!

He became a gladiator, hoping to dominate the colosseum in order to one day get the chance of killing Commodus. Maximus is valiant, courageous, and dedicated. He wants nothing more than the chance to avenge his family, but his temper often gets the better of him.
