Yo Momma Reflects

ViVa Pope Francis!

January 18, 2015

Hello Mommsies!

It's a Sunday. And it's time for another edition of Yo Momma Reflects (God Speaks to me). I love that I can get to share with you some of my own life's experiences here in this blog. And I am glad that some if not many get to have their comments saying that they learned a lot from my posts. Thank you! And keep on keeping on.

This January, lots of things are going on in my head. Like:
 What do I do with my life? How will I raise my child in the best way a mother can? Will I ever make it until he graduates from college? What's the best diet pill on Earth? Will Allen ever propose to me for yet our Church Wedding? What am I going to prepare them for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner? How will I ever pay my pending debts?
It ranges in greater wavelengths, I know. A mind I have is a bit complicated. And im jealous of women I know who are very detail -oriented. Knows what they want and need for their family. Knows How and what to do and what to prioritize. It's never getting into my head that way. I am easily swayed but what I see and how I feel about things, my thoughts and the people-pleaser that I am.

As I reflect, As I see and sit and watch my TV while Pope Francis is waving his hand to my fellow Filipinos, I can say it is true. God is real. That He is there.

This visit calls to mind what Jesus did as recounted in the Gospel.  In Matthew 9:36, Jesus after “seeing the people, felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.”
And like the Good Shepherd of Whom he is the Vicar here on earth, the Holy Father saw the suffering of his flock. He felt compassion and comes to us bringing “the joy of the gospel” to revive our “drooping spirit” and to lead us to greener pastures (cf. Psalm 23).
The message the Holy Father brings with him challenges us to imitate Christ, the Good Shepherd, who is Mercy and Compassion. 

I Can only imagine how it would be to show the world that I can do things I wanted to do. I want to make an impact to someone else's life. I want to be the Hero. And Being a mom is one. Being a breadwinner is another.

A woman can only hold and keep so much endurance and strength. To give her all For the people that she cares a lot for.

For her family and her children. No matter what/who they may be. No matter what the odds may be.
She will do it.

In a way, in His eyes, I know and feel that - we are all equal. We are all the same.
We are Longing for his Compassion and never ending Unconditional Love.

Yes, it's true. That if we just hold on to what we have and try to make the most out of it. We can surpass the strongest storms and the most destructive quakes.

 What we can do for Love.
We can achieve greater things.

Yes, we are all God's Children.
We belong to Him.
  God Bless Us all and Viva Pit Senyor to all of you!
Viva Pope Francis!
Glory be to God!

My God Speaks to Me: Why I should read the Bible

October 23, 2014

Mommies!

This is my new series here in Yo Momma. God Speaks to me.
I have been living on Earth for already 28 years to be exact, and I am raised by Catholic Parents.
Being in Cebu my whole life has been a blessing, I would like to call it.

Cebuanos are very religious people.
We go to church on Sundays, and celebrate fiestas of our Patron Saints. Evident in those is the Sinulog,
the grandest festival in the Philippines.

Being a Cebuano always reflects being a good Christian , following Christ teachings and being able to show it to others. Being able to share it with the rest of the world.

As a working mom, I often feel the need to hear God's words. I feel the need to reflect and heed his purpose for me. I am not a perfect person. If I tell you all the mistakes I have committed, It would sure take up most of your time reading and perhaps doing it on another blog.

When we seek to enjoy communion with the Lord — and not to be led astray by the ambiguities of religious experience — we read the Bible. From Genesis to Revelation, God’s words and God’s deeds reveal God himself for our knowledge and our enjoyment. Of course, it is possible to read the Bible without enjoying communion with God. We must seek to understand the Bible’s meaning, and we must pause to contemplate what we understand and, by the Spirit, to feel and express the appropriate response of the heart.
God communicates with us in many ways through the Bible and seeks the response of our communion with him.
  • If God indicts us (2 Cor. 7:8–10), we respond to him with sorrow and repentance.
  • If he commends us (Ps. 18:19–20), we respond to him with humble gratitude and joy.
  • If he commands us to do something (Matt. 28:19–20), we look to him for strength and resolve to obey with his help.
  • If he makes a promise (Heb. 13:5–6), we marvel at his grace and trust him to do what he says.
  • If he warns us of some danger (Luke 21:34), we take him seriously and watch with a thankful sense of his presence and protection.
  • If he describes something about himself (Isa. 46:9–11), his Son (Mark 1:11), or his Holy Spirit (John 16:13–14), we affirm it and admire it and pray for clearer eyes to see and enjoy his greatness and beauty.2
Reading the Bible from cover to cover in 2013 is a noble goal. And it’s a goal that positions us well to commune with God. Keep communion as your aim, and remember the words of Scripture are there for us to know God’s heart, to commune with the Living Christ, and to respond appropriately to his beauty and to his voice. 
Bible reading is meant to deepen our personal relationship with Christ. http://www.desiringgod.org/blog/posts/why-we-read-the-bible

Proverbs 31 Woman

October 21, 2014

Hi There Momma!

How is your day today?

I wanted to share with you today this quote. This really inspire me to become a woman of substance and dignity. After all being a wife and a mother is never an easy task. It has always been a constant battle to learn, develop and master.

No mom is perfect but we all wanted to make and give the best that we have for our families.
So I do hope you also get to reflect these quotes from the Bible.

You can read it along with your husband and fellow mommy friends too!
