One of the things that I am grateful about is that my dear husband and I are of the same wavelength when it comes to raising our family, financial management and even on ideas of fun. I am glad that even if we do not have that much money, we always make sure to enjoy through traveling because we both believe that traveling is a good investment especially to your kids.
Let me share with you my Morning Routine.
I try as much as possible to be awake 30 minutes earlier than DS, if not an hour so I have my quiet time and I would not be so rushed in the morning. Usually, DH cooks the breakfast but if he is too sleepy to get up, I cook breakfast and brew coffee. I then log in to my laptop while I drink my coffee and pray these 2 prayers: (which could be found HERE and HERE).
The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.A Wife’s Prayer
O merciful Lord God, who in the beginning didst take Eve out of the side of Adam and didst give her to him as a helpmate: grant me grace to live worthy of the honorable estate of matrimony to which Thou hast called me, that I may love my husband with a pure and chaste love, acknowledging him as my head, and truly reverencing and obeying him in all good things; that thereby I may please him, and live with him in all Christian serenity. Keep me from all worldliness and vanity. Help me, O Lord, that I may, under him, prudently and discreetly guide and govern his household. Let no fault of mine aggravate any sins by which he may be especially tempted; enable me to soothe him in perplexity, to cheer him in difficulty, to refresh him in weariness, and, as far as may be, to advise him in doubt. [Give me understanding so to fulfil my part in the education of our children, that they may be our joy in this world and our glory in the next.] Grant that our perfect union here may be the beginning of the still more perfect and blissful union hereafter in Thy kingdom; and this I pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
And recite this verse: “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—THINK ABOUT SUCH THINGS.” (Philippians 4:8)

So yes, I pray with my laptop on.
How do you start your mornings?
When you get to the point in your life when making decisions is so hard, just remember this. It gets easier when your goal is to please God and not men.
Oh well, I know I should not be blogging something that sound so sad because it is my birthday tomorrow, but I can’t help it. I guess I need a break by going to the nearest bar tomorrow night with dear hubby.
Don’t you ever think that everything will be A-OK if you go back to basics and just consume and dream the basics, not the lavish and leisurely stuff? I do.
Here’s my entry for this week’s Wordless Wednesday. An inspiration to stay grounded and aim for anything basic. Happy Wordless Wednesday everyone!
The best way to enjoy life is actually very very simply.
Easier said than done but actually, if you focus on these 5, you will discover how light and enjoyable life is.
Have an awesome weekend y’all!
Hopping off to check this overnight printing services online.
Anyways, I did not mean to write B.S. in my previous entry but I could not help myself so I did, after all this is my blog and who cares. The past week has been a blur to me, not to mention terrible after being accidentally offline for almost 4 days because of some neighbor who wants to plant tress.
But, each morning, a brand new day, a brand new week in this case is laid upon to us by God to make up for the shortcomings of our past. Here’s a list I made for myself. Through this list, I hope to be reminded that I should FOCUS and prioritize only what matters. So here goes:
Before I eminence swamp thang, let me share you with this beautiful poem.
Just rest for a moment. It’s OK. Yes, things are crazy, yes, the world is going nuts. Yet, deep underneath the stormy waves, there, in the core of your being,… there is pure silence, pure love. And … it’s … just … OK. And…I need to check…. this propellerhead at musicians friend.
Happy Wordless Wednesday!
