Desktop Meme

Thursday, September 27, 2007
Just for fun!!! I've been tagged by Sparrow to do the Desktop Meme. Here's the instruction:

* Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop.It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. You can do a screen capture by: Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key. Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V). If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.

* Post the picture on your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you
want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.

* Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.

* Add your name to this list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.

Here's mine:

This is how my computer desktop in the office looks like. At home, it's basically the same. I wanted it simple and very basic. I usually have those yellow post-its to remind me of things I needed to do.

Now I tag: Amrita, Tidy, Ester, Sylvia and Nita

I came to work this morning still feeling jaded. I'd been having this feeling for a week now, on and off. Anyway, I was thinking of deleting my last two posts, but still undecided, because I felt like it's stirred up something that I'm afraid might cause confusion on my readers. I'm willing to admit my mistake if ever I wrote anything that's not "appropriate". I was just trying to share my musing and didn't, in any way, intend to mislead anyone.

My head is spinning. I'm still in the office for a meeting. Argh! We're just having a short break and so I'm here posting...

They're back! I'm wrapping this up. Have a nice weekend. God bless!

The Power Of God's Word

Wednesday, September 19, 2007
"Is not my word like fire," declares the LORD, "and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?" Jeremiah 23:29

I've been meditating on this verse since Friday evening last week. This was the verse quoted by one of Daystar's prayer partners while praying for me, the one I mentioned in my previous post.
God's word is that powerful! If we declare God's truth over our lives, it can change us and even our situation. No matter how impossible it looks like, God can turn it around for us. We can rely on His word because it never changes. His truth before is still truth now.

Have you found promises in the Bible that God is speaking to you right now? I wrote mine in a notebook. Let's declare it everyday and see how God transforms to our advantage whatever the enemy meant for our harm.

Thank You, Daystar

I feel jaded. I've tried everything but nothing worked. An hour ago I called Daystar TV for a prayer request. I watch this show everyday in our local cable channel. I dialed their number but my call was transferred to a voice recording. I left my number but didn't really expect them to call back. After an hour or so my phone rang. I was surprised to hear from one of Daystar's prayer partners. I didn't get the name of the guy who prayed for me, but he was so nice and accommodating. He didn't cut me off while I was talking nor rush me into prayer so he could hang up right away. So I went on telling him my prayer request. Our conversation went something like this.

Daystar: I wanted you to do something first before we start praying.

Me: Okay.

Daystar: Release anger, unforgiveness and feelings of rejection in your heart. Release them all.

He sounded as if he knew me! I mean, I didn't even realize those negative feelings still existed in my heart. I closed my eyes and started to picture "release" in my mind. He gave me verses to meditate on, there were a lot actually, but I didn't remember all of them. I just remembered one which was in Jeremiah 23:29 "Is not my word like fire," declares the LORD, "and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?" Then he proceeded to pray for me in such a powerful way declaring Bible truths over me, my husband and my marriage. After praying,

Daystar: Call us back for a praise report. (He sounded happy)

Me: I will. (Maybe I didn't sound too convincing)

Daystar: You WILL call us back with a praise report. You will!

I was kinda stunned by his certainty but I was glad he said it in that manner.

Me: Most certainly I will. (With a smile on my face)

Daystar: Everything's gonna be alright. Keep saying that over and over again ok?

Me: I will. Thank you. God bless.

Daystar: God bless you too. Bye.

I hang up.

Thank you, Daystar. Thank you for believing with me.

Whatever Your Cross

Tuesday, September 11, 2007
I got this in my mail and wanted to share this to all of you. There's a reason behind every burden.

(Please click on the picture to enlarge it)

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain
There will always be sunshine after the rain.
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall,
But God is always ready to answer your call.

He knows every heartache, sees every tear,
A word from His lips can calm every fear.
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish in dawn's early light.

The Savior is waiting somewhere above,

To give you His grace and send you His love.
Whatever your cross, whatever your pain,
"God always sends rainbows ... after the rain ... "

I had a dream. In my dream I saw a curved pathway covered with green green grass. On the side were plants and trees. In my dream I was looking at it from the top. Then there was a man in a pirate suit who shouted Negev! Negev! Negev! He pronounced it as Najev. I woke up. It was 4 in the afternoon. I asked my friend's 15 year old daughter who was with me that time reviewing for her exams the next day, "What is Najev?" She answered me with a puzzled look, "What are you talking about?"

I thought if it was just spelled backwards and pronounced differently, it would have been a place here in the Philippines. So I kept asking God, "Lord, what's in Vigan?" Then God showed me a Bible passage with the word "Negev" in it. It popped out the page straight to my face. Ok Lord, I got it. I searched for it on the Internet and this is what I found:

This is exactly what was in my dream, only it's covered with green grass and with plants and trees on the sides. Negev in Hebrew means south and it also means dry. In my dream, it didn't look dry at all. I wonder what was God trying to tell me. I know and I know and I know that it was a dream from God.

How Addicted To Blogging Are You?

Monday, September 3, 2007
I was browsing some stuff over the net and came across Technorati's authority count. Mine is just 15 as of today. Last week it was 17. ??? Still very low compared to others. I don't know if this has any significance when you're into paid blogging which I'm considering doing. I'm new in this so I'm still trying to find my way around it. Unfortunately, though, all paid blogging I visited uses Paypal. The bad news is we don't have the full features of Paypal in the Philippines. We can send but we can't accept money. Calling Paypal!!!

Anyway, going back to Technorati, there's a link there that led me to this quiz and this has been my score.
How about you? How addicted to blogging are you?
