Life in Grey

Most things are within the infinite spectrum of grey; they are neither black nor white.
But it is our duty to discern whether there is more white or black in each shade of grey we see, and to avoid the blacker grey best we can, if we cannot whiten it after trying our best.

The Feast Day of St. Jude Thaddeus

Novena to St. Jude
Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus,  the Church honors and invokes you universally, as the patron of difficult  cases, of things almost despaired of, Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone.
Intercede with God for me that He bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly - (make your request here)- and that I may praise God with you and all the saints forever.
I promise, O Blessed St. Jude, to be  ever mindful of this great favor granted me by God and to always honor you as  my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.

Amen

HOW TO ENJOY THE NEW SELECTA MAGNUM ICE CREAM?

STEP 1: Maghanda ng Php50 at pumunta sa pinakamalapit na supermarket o 7-Eleven. Bumili ng kahit anong flavor ng Magnum. (Wag manghinayang kahit dalawang sundae na sa McDonald's ang katapat nito.)

STEP 2: Umuwi sa bahay at buksan ang biniling ice cream (IMPORTANTE: Wag hayaan na mapunit o masira ang wrapper.) Kumagat ng konti. (WARNING: Kaunti lang para maganda pa rin tignan.)

STEP 3: Kumuha ng digicam, camera phone o DSLR (mas recommended ang DSLR para mas maganda ang resolution at mas maangas ang dating.) Pwede rin webcam.

STEP 4: Kuhanan ang sarili ng picture habang pakagat sa ice cream. Kuhanan din ang wrapper. Kung camera shy, pwedeng 'yung ice cream at kamay mo na lang. Pero dahil Magnum ‘yan, gusto mo ipamukha sa madlang pipol na can afford ka!!!

STEP 5: Mag-log in sa Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Plurk, Blogger, Wordpress, Photobucket, Flickr, Google Plus, at sa iba pang online sharing sites.

STEP 6: (IMPORTANTE) I-upload ang picture kasama ang Magnum at lagyan ng caption na: …

My "not-so perfect kidneys" (Update)

It has been a week since the doctor told me that I should have my kidney transplant soonest possible. Worry struck me in an instant on how will we able to produce that much in such a short time. Pulling out each family member’s resources and savings might be possible. Surely they will help and find ways especially at this trying time...however, what will be left after? There are still so many things that can happen...

Asking for friends help gave me second thoughts. Pride is hindering me from making a move. But where do I stand now to think twice about it? Even my own savings can't do much! for the past 5 months i'm trying to make both ends meet to buy meds and do lab tests.

But GOD is really great. He provided me courage to move forward and realize the power of family and friends. I might not be able to reach my goal of 15,000 generous hearts but it's much more enlightening that with just a small amount I’m asking for, YOU ARE ALL WILLING to give even more than what I nee…

My "not-so perfect kidneys"

Kindly spare a little of your time to read the letter from my dear friend Valery Jane Valera-Basco

Let's all include her in our prayers. 
And hopefully, by spreading her letter, we can help her raise fund to facilitate her kidney transplant.
Thank you...

My "not-so perfect kidneys" By Valery Jane Valera-Basco Written March 1, 2012
August 2011. All month I’m coming home with a literally heavy problem – my legs are swelling! I consulted a doctor and was asked to do tests. Urinalysis showed UTI (Which is normal for me since once a year starting 2007, it has been visiting me constantly) and high uric acid (thank you, Daddy for passing that on me?). Medications were given and soon enough, bye bye UTI. However, the swelling(manas/edema) remained and the doctor asked me to do more lab tests. So I went to another clinic for second opinion and just after the doctor felt my swelling fo…
