Leann Rimes and Brian Mcfadden - Everybody's someone

Everybody's Someone
Artist:Leann Rimes/Brian Mcfadden

And every day begins the same
Get up, go out, come back gain
Same old, same old

A thousand faces pass you by
You never look into their eyes

You feel so ordinary
They feel so ordinary

Everybody's someone
No matter where you come from
there's light in every single star
You're more than who you think you are
And hey
Everybody's someone
And when it's hard to hold on
Remember you are not alone
This house is everybody's home

And every day we seem to chase
The perfect smile, the perfect face
Same old, same old
Same old

For every one who gets to shine
A million more are left behind
They feel so ordinary
You feel so ordinary

Everybody's someone
No matter where you come from
there's light in every single star
You're more than who you think you are
And hey
Everybody's someone
And when it's hard to hold on
Remember you are not alone
This house is everybody's home

From a king to a common man
We're all part of a greater…


A few days ago, I was tinkering with my friend's camera and I saw a picture that almost made me cry. It was a picture of a horse. A dead horse. The horse looks very familiar, no doubt because I used to ride that horse.

Her name is Dusty. She used to be UB's horse until he gave her away some years ago.

When I first came to CFM, I felt like an outsider from my own friends and cousins because of being away too long. I have had to reestablish the friendships that I had back in grade school but it took a little bit of time before I was able to get kind of accepted again as one of them. Bringing friendships to the same page can be draining for an introvert like me, and so those times when I feel washed-out, I would saddle Dusty and let her take me up and down the river that runs alongside our compound. Her gallop is very steady, effortless and graceful. Her hooves stirs up the water and splashes it on to my face and all over me. With her racing the wind, you can feel the cool…


Very Interesting

This is all true. Check it out.

A sliced carrot looks like the human eye .The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart is red and has four chambers.

Amo: Inday, may pulubi sa gate, paalisin mo nga!

Inday: Right away, Ma'am!

Inday to Beggar: "Hey you! Yes, you putrid-smelling beggar with the diverse ambiance of scented junk that assails everybody's nostrils and poisons everyone's fresh and carbon-free lungs, go away now!"

Beggar: What?!!! Who do you think you are?? You pathetic, trying hard nanny!!! How could you, a social climber and a low-grade mammal, underestimate a high class beggar like me? The hell with you!

Inday: Oy, nakakasakit ka na ha!
Ma'am oh! Ayaw umaleees!


dati ay isang saglit ng kahapon
dagling nilimot, sa ala-ala ibinaon

dati ay hangin na takot nang umihip
ngayon sa likuran ng mga ulap, araw na pilit sumisilip

kaya di makapangyari, tuldok man
wakasan ang walang hanggan

dahil nais ng magpakailanman
ay kailanman ding hahandugan...


... malay mo...


Last Saturday, my friends (who are also family) went up to Mapayao village to attend the closing ceremonies of the Children's Vacation Bible School that was held there. There were 90 children listed and a few more. It was great to see so many children being taught about the Lord Jesus that early in their life.

On that Sunday morning, at breakfast, I did not have the usual cooked rice, but I did eat a lot of cooked ampalaya leaves. Everybody actually shoved all the leaves to my plate telling me that it's good for me. Days before, I have been roving the net like crazy trying to find out natural means to lower blood sugar and of course ampalaya was there, as well as cinnamon and other things. So I have been taking my coffee, tea, etc. with some cinnamon powder. I've also been acting like ampalaya is the best vegetable in the world, what with eating them with almost every meal I take.

That morning, as I was looking at the children rehearsing for their closing program, I st…

Guide to Contented living

The famed German writer Goethe offered a list of nine requisites for
contented living. They are as timely now as they were when he wrote
them 200 years ago.

"Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your
needs. Strength enough to battle with difficulties and overcome them.

"Grace enough to confess your sins and forsake them. Patience enough
to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some
good in your neighbor.

"Love enough to move you to be useful to others. Faith enough to make
the real things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears
concerning the future."

Goethe showed wisdom in these thoughts, perhaps especially in the use
of the word "enough." Often we seek something more, when contentment
could come with gratitude for having enough.

There is great gain in godliness with contentment; for we brought
nothing into the world, and we cannot
take anything out of the …
