Mokong




ANG ALAMAT NG SINUMPANG "BIRD"
Malaki ang problema ni Pedro. Ga-higante ang kanyang ... kuwan... 25 inches. Dahil dito, ayaw siyang pakasalan ni Maria. Naisip niyang humingi ng tulong kay Manang Belen, ang arbolaryo sa kanilang lugar.


"Naku Pedro", wika ni Manang Belen, "iisa lang ang remedyo sa problema mo.


Kailangan hanapin mo ang mahiwagang loro sa tuktok ng bundok at hilingin mo na pakasalan ka niya. Tuwing tatanggihan ka ng loro, liliit ng 5 inches ang kuwan mo.


"Umakyat si Pedro sa bundok. Nang narating niya ang tuktok , nakita niya ang mahiwagang loro. "Mahiwagang loro, pakasalan mo ako", halos binulong lang ni Pedro sa kaba.


"Ayoko!", sagot ng loro.


Pag silip ni Pedro, 20 inches na lang siya! "Mahiwagang loro, pakasalan mo ako", mas malakas niyang binigkas.


"Ayoko!", sagot ng loro.


Pag silip ni Pedro, 15 inches na lang siya! Minsan na lang para matuwa si Maria.


" Mahiwagang loro, pakasalan mo ako", halos napasigaw siya sa galak.


"Ang kulit mo naman!" sumbat ng loro , "Sinabing Ayoko! Ayoko! Ayoko!"


Ito ang nangyari sa kuwan ni Pedro!

Christian Cartoons

The way of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD,
But He loves one who pursues righteousness.


These are nice, I have never seen Christian Cartoons before, enjoy!
Concentrate on this Sentence
'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.' Something good will happen to you today; something that you have been waiting to hear. Like it? Love it? Do not break!
Share this post to all your friends... JUST DO IT!!!

THANKFUL

Let not your hearts be troubled!
PEACE OF MIND
If you were to ask your neighbor,
"What would give you peace of mind?" he might tell you,
"A holiday in Bali!" or
"An extra hundred grand would give me peace!", or
"A new Ferrari would make me content!"
But going places - and getting stuff - is usually a temporary solution ...
Peace of mind rarely comes from getting more stuff.
Getting more stuff usually leads to wanting even more!
Peace of mind starts with being grateful for what we have right now.

GRATITUDE is POWER
When we are thankful for what we have - for the friends we have, and for the things we've got, we attract more good people and good things!

People who always complain about what they DON'T HAVE, stay stuck.
Complainers attract more things to complain about!
It is a law of life. It's hard to explain, but you can observe it around you.
We get more of what we dwell upon.
That's why all the spiritual masters have taught the same lesson...
"Start by being thankful. Be happy with what you have now, and more will come your way."
It's practical advice.
Every time you say a silent "thank you" you become more peaceful.

EMBRACE

MORAL: Smooth roads never make good drivers
Smooth sea never makes good sailors
Clear Skies never makes good Pilots.
Problem and hassle free Life NEVER makes a strong person
Be Strong enough to accept the challenges of Life
Don't ask Life , 'Why Me ? .
Instead say 'try Me!'
Let's Embrace Challenges for the year 2009!
