Having a beautiful feet

I consider my feet to be one part of my body that I cannot be proud of. The soles of my feet are hard that during cold weather they crack and it hurts, my toes nails are affected with fungus that makes them very brittle. I find it helpful applying lotions and taking vitamin E everyday, they minimize the problem. I found it also helpful to have spa treatment but I couldn’t afford maintaining it weekly. Foot spa can be done at home, but I don’t have extra time to personally care and maintain a beautiful feet.

Let's just say I am one of those persons who are frustrated on how to have a beautiful feet. During my Bible study, I came across reading Isaiah 52:7-8 (NIV) it says:


How beautiful on the mountain 
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
“Your God reigns!” Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices;
together they shout for joy.
When the Lord returns to Zion,
they will see it with their own eyes.

Perfect Panacea

What compels God to love a frail and vulnerable man?  I am amazed how a God like Him could love us.

Church leaders and ministers are not exempted on how frail human life is.  These people are also susceptible of being hurt.  Our vulnerabilities get us down.  In these situations, God's perfect love is the best panacea to a wounded soul.  His love has been manifested towards us through His creations.  We can read of His unconditional love in the Bible.  We completely sense His love because of our Christian brethren surrounding us.  It is the fellowship of believers that will keep us reminded that we are not alone.  A minister keeps inflamed with his passions when he knows his real worth in front of God and the people whom he is serving.  A simple thank you and appreciation motivates to keep on.

I found Pastor's Appreciation Month to be nice.  Though I know most of the Pastor's and ministers of Christ choose to serve with out expecting anything in return.  Yet it is their joy to see how others are blessed and transformed because God used them.  Most of the churches are celebrating it on the month of October


Christ Stewards Fellowship chose October 28, 2012 to celebrate Pastor's Appreciation Month.  Every last Sunday of the month is assigned for our Celebration Sunday.  I would personally thank our dear CSF members for their effort of giving Pastor Celso Namuco a surprise party appreciating his service in this church for seven years.

Let the little children come

I had been inactive in the children ministry for the past four years.  When I give birth to our first son then after 18 months I was pregnant again to our second daughter,  I couldn't commit and be directly involved in every children activities that we had.  For these inactive years, I'm more of advising and looking for the needs to be done and help in small ways I can.  In my heart I would have want to get hands on for these activities, yet I still chose to cater the needs of my children first, which is my main priority.

Bridging Hope


Whenever I see the Pallocan Bridge, it always reminds me of the goodness of the Lord.  It gives me a sense of strength and encouragement to pursue on serving the Lord in the ministry that He had entrusted to us.  In most difficult times, this picture would make me reminisce of God's faithfulness and being a graceful provider that I can continually put my hope upon.

Sharing Lives



"A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: 
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother." KJV
Proverbs 18:24


Isn't it nice to have friends around?  Friends become  blessings in so many different ways.  A true friend is the who loves and understands us even at the most difficult time of our lives.  We feel confident with our friends and never hesitate showing our cracks knowing that they will still accept us.  What is more exciting is to have new more friends around.

Last week, June 9, 2012, fellows from Cornerstone Fellowship Bible Church visited us - Hannah, Susan, Biblia, Jason and Joshua with Pastor Vincent Green and Pastor Mike Berry.

Labor for a New Home





Each family desires a place where to dwell together.  A home is a place where we can find refuge, security and happiness.  It is an environment where you feel being loved and cared for.  Though a home is more than just the visual structure, we are to admit that the physical building and ambiance it offers has somehow a contribution to make us feel more comfortable.

Christ Stewards Fellowship Hall has become a place of refuge for our emotional and spiritual needs. Being united with the bond of Christ, each member of CSF is continually learning and growing to build each and everyone’s relationship stronger and to reach out also for others who are in need.  Since last year, we started praying for our church building needs.  We have stayed for almost five years and ever since we have not made any major renovations in the building that we have occupied.

Stewarship and Giving

 As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 
1 Peter 4:10

This year has brought a new perspective in our lives, as being Christ’s stewards in all the gifts He has entrusted – time, talent and specially treasures (resources).  The past topics about stewardship have reminded me of being God’s faithful steward in every gift that he has given.

Last 2011 God has taught me to be grateful for everything I have.  As our family grows bigger, needs become greater.  Most of us would care of our own family’s sake and need.  There are also times that I also wish to have the things that we don't have such as: a new beautiful house, appliances, gadgets, new trendy clothes and shoes, what's in with the children's toys and the like.  At times I really do find myself murmuring to God - asking for things that I wished we had.
