Selfieritual:The Best Selfie Ever!

Merry Christmas to blogging enthusiasts and friends! This is my second and probably, last post for this year, at least for and before Christmas hits the world this year. Needless to say I've been out of circulation again as I assume; it is common to bloggers who can't quite make it yet to the first million dollars or euros notwithstanding the long-time intensive and extensive blogging prowess. I briefly veered away from blogging to perform passionately in the teaching profession, and network marketing (-which I would also respectfully recommend to every earning adult), also, mothering and wifey-ring and everything in between.
Last night or even until now I am amused at this new gen social phenomenon called 'selfie'. What is 'selfie' by the way. well, it's simply the picture you want to paint of yourself ,for the world to see. In hopes of arousing the interest of others in the form of 'likes' (or similar compliments) particularly in your Facebook account.  Really very interesting and I don't deny I am one ,into it ,though as less as I can . well everybody does it and I realize I want to do it as much as others and the more clever part of me asks 'what's the use?' so I end up doing it less because I don't see a dollar sign in exchange for
But there is another kind of 'Selfie' which imposes an everlasting and real meaning in our life. I coin it 'Selfieritual'. It is our picture or reflection in the mind of GOD, our GOD. Our self-reflection, self-image vouched and sealed in the blood of HIS Only Begotten Son, paid with the eternally priceless life of the GOD-Man our LORD Jesus Christ. This image (that) GOD would have you wear on earth until we get to heaven, fully paid-for with the crimson blood of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Here I go;
I am a child of GOD
I am the righteousness of GOD in Christ Jesus                     2 Cor 5:21
I am the apple of GOD's eye.                                                 Zech 2:8, Ps 17:8
GOD loves me                                                                        John 3:16
I am a new creation in Christ                                                  2 Cor. 5:17
I am healed                                                                              Is. 53
I am a royal priesthood                                                           1 Pet. 2:9
I am a chosen generation                                                       1 Pet 2:9
All Grace abounds towards me                                              2 cor. 9:8
as He is, so am I (are we) in this world                                  1 John 4:17
I am accepted in the beloved                                                  Eph 1;6
I am above and not beneath                                                    Deut. 28:13
I am the head and not the tail                                                  Deut. 28
I am the lender and not the borrower                                      Deut. 28
I am baptized into one Spirit. I am baptized into Christ and HIS death
 I am blessed with all spiritual blessings                                 Eph 1:3
I've got bold access to the throne of grace                              Heb. 4;16
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me           Phil. 4;13
I am chosen                                                                              John 15:16
Christ indwells me in all HIs fullness                                      1 Col. 2:9
I am a co-heir with CHRIST                                                    Romans 8:17
I am justified (forgiven and declared holy)                             Romans 8:1
Everything works in my favor                                                Romans 8:28
I am enriched in all knowledge                                               1 Cor. 1:5
He has freely given me all things                                            Romans 8:32
I am a friend of GOD                                                               James 2:23
   ...at this point I have to confess, space and time is not enough for me to list all HIS Great gifts to all who are willing to believe and accept them, through accepting our LORD Jesus Christ into his/her own life and heart. Would you? It mattered to GOD to the extent of giving HIS Own Only Begotten Son the LORD Jesus Christ to die to redeem us; why wouldn't it ,to you? It's not even that difficult,everybody is qualified.The only requirement is to have a child-like heart that's willing to accept and believe HIM. Selfie is as normal seeking self-worth which is innate in our human nature.We are all made in the image of GOD and each of us is valuable.and GOD affirms this absolutely in HIS WORD which is the Bible. And oh, did you know that the other name for the Bible is The Old/New (Will) Testament.?For all these GOD's Promises are stipulations in the Divine Contract between GOD and man, and would have meant nothing for us had they not been eternally signed and sealed with the Blood of our LORD JESUS. For this Chritmas, it's my sincere prayer that you find the real Reason for the Season.  And who knows? The best and guaranteed Selfieritual image,courtesy of our Loving Merciful GOD. Merry Christmas to all my friends. Our LORD Prosper each of us even more, with good and better health and more financial and material blessings and with HIS Own Peace this New Year 2015!GOD BLESS us all Tremendously!

TINIKLING IN ROME ITALY 2010

We attended the celebration of Philippine Independence Day last June 12, at Manila Square here in Rome, and we enjoyed so much not only all the typical Filipino delicacies (mostly for free, just like in a town 'Fiesta'), but also the company of all the filipinos in that highly festive occasion where the TFC channel also held a show hosted by Pokwang and Randy Santiago.But we weren't able to watch anymore as we left before their arrival, late in the afternoon.We didn't want to expose our little daughter to too much sun. But it was the first time we attended the Philippine Independence Day here in Rome. It was also funny to see some foreigners, muslim-looking and also Italians appreciating our festivities and our food. There were many different booths set-up to promote varied services like Filipino real estate companies,Filipino Banking institutions, legal assistance, food stands etc. There was also the 'halo-halo' under the heat of the sun--:The most surprisin…

Cross At The Center of The Universe

This is the actual image at the very center of our universe,found at the core of the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51) Not long ago, a certain very young Pastor Louise who himself also, is a NASA/space enthusiast- preached in Spain about the incomprehensible enormity of our universe. It was a very eloquent message,very well explained and accompanied by his own actual visual collections from NASA. He articulately (however hard he tried to..) showed the vastness of GOD (more than that, the vastness of GOD's Love for us) . ...consider, at 60,000 or 70,000 ft. above the sealevel, all structures on earth's surface would hardly be visible through the naked eye, lowfast lamborghinis or ferraris, jetplanes,villas and mansions, the most luxurious malls and most importantly-people would seem inexistent. If you travel farther,beyond our own solar system or even outside our Milky Way galaxy, the Earth would seem to be only a dot.And men, you or me would be insignificant(or seemingly inexistent) size…

HARD ROCK CAFE' ROME ITALY

We celebrated our sixth year wedding anniversary yesterday at Hard Rock Cafe' at the Rome tourist belt area.Of course Italy is known for its delightful and fat-free cuisine but due to budget constraints we opted not for a fine dining.But the entire day was blessed with cheers and simple fatty dishes by Hard Rock but nevertheless served with kindness and sweetness by the young and handsome waiter.That is also good enough to make up for what might still be lacking to call it a memorable wedding anniversary.We were with my girlfriend Lala with whom I was teasing Alessandro our waiter just for fun.We finished our dinner with yet another greasy dessert hot fudge brownies.After that,we proceeded with some photoshoot outside the restaurant.As the American embassy is just a stone's throw away from Hard Rock, I also had my photo taken with it in the background.Well there's one more reason to Praise My GOD today.
