good morning! good afternoon! good evening! good day! --- let us be all thankful for the things given to us by God. like the second life as i supposed given to me and to us who experienced earthquake for 7.9 magnitude for thirty seconds. and that during that time i was staying in the third year floor and that after a few seconds, electricity failed that made the whole building so dim. and thanks God we are still alive. aside from thanking of our breath - we should give thanks for having our family, for our love ones, for the food we eat, and the good things happened in our lives. also, for the bad things, for this one serve as our limit and our awakening that we need to stop doing a thing because of its failure and delimitations. shortcomings are our boundary not to go further for sometimes we forget that we are just human and that there is God who is omnipotent that we need to trust our whole selves and not ours alone. we need to praise Him. so in the philippines it is Sunday in here now and it is Lords Day once more. time to go church and spend with our family. be ready for another day will come and another activity or tasks to be done by each one of us. gosh, BER months is already making its way. so means, christmas is nearly approaching. and after that, another brand new year will takes it phase. enjoy all! God bless everyone, even if it is Saturday, Sunday in there and of any time of the day. love, love, love!

Thanks God we are all safe! Speaking of BER months, I've got my very first Christmas greetings from a friend. I'm so busy that is why I was not able to remember the time. Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

yeah sometimes instead of thanking i always find myself complaining about anything,.. but can you imagine saying that with the parents who see their own child dying of starvation, lets say in Africa, how can you explain to them the importance of thanking God while in that horrible situation?

i cannot explain it to you friend for i do not know why such thing ever happened in there. i mean, why they suffer, what kind of people are they and any other question that would feed our curiosity. what i know is that, some of what we reaped is based on what we sow. my heart is aching for what you told me. there is nothing i can do it to ease their pains and starvation. i will just hope that people in there would overcome the situation like that. stay happy :) because i convince myself to be even i am not thanks

i do not have the intention of hurting you, i'm asking a question here for us to discuss with, pls, do not point my respond to your message negatively to yourself same as you i'm also hoping that one day i will wake up that everyone is happy, but back to the topic, i always find that it's very hard for me to thank anybody when the situation is not favorable, don't you think it is also reasonable for some individual to complain, so that the unfavorable situation might change, or do you want to stick to the idea that even if the situation is not favorable it is still a good idea to be thankful? i hope you understand what i mean here.

Someone said 'we should have an attitude of gratitude' and that is very true. If we start the day being thankful we get off to a good start. A frightening experience, such as you had,reminds us of the blessing of life, of loving friends and family around us. If we almost lose something then we value it more.

good statement you had there madam. it taught us of how to have good values in life. never thank good things only but rather, mirroring horrible things happened would teach you not to step the same line again. and that making the same mistakes twice or more would be at your risk already. thanks for dropping it here...
