quotable quotes…

Today was unexpectedly fine and spontaneous. I thought that the fact that things not going well as planned would ruin our day but it didn’t. We ate at a nearby yellow and black themed pizza restaurant because mama didn’t think in advance and thaw something for lunch. It wasn’t all her fault though. We should have been the one to think in advance, after all, she and papa had to talk to the landlord (who also happened to be our architect for the house renovations about some things that didn’t go as planned—what I was talking about earlier).

After lunch, we headed down to SM Taytay to do some last minute grocery shopping before school starts tomorrow. The mall was packed. It’s like the whole of Taytay was at the same place, at the same time, which was the mall at 1 in the afternoon. 

Anyway, what I also want to share with you, aside from our lovely family day are some of the quotes that unexpectedly and all oddly seemed to just pop out of nowhere for the last hour or two. Weird thing that these just kept coming while I was surfing. 

“no one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys” 
This one I got from Ryan Seacrest via twitter and I have to tell you, it’s really funny but when you think about it, it is true!

“..thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.”
This one’s from David Archuleta also via twitter and it kind of reminds me of the song “Get up” by Superchick from the movie, Ice Princess. It sort of means the same thing. 
“I–I hardly know, sir, just at present–at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.”
This one was posted by one of my closest friends, Christine on her tumblr account. It was an excerpt from a book with a character named Alice. Not sure though if it’s Alice in Wonderland. I honestly had to read and reread it a few times before I understood (well, sort of) it. 

Lastly, this one which I got from Chico Garcia’s blog (from one of his entries entitled Top 10 date quotes) which was just shared to me by another good friend of mine, Louise. I couldn’t stop scrolling down to his previous posts until reached this special quote to which I know I can relate my other good friend, Juci to. I know that when my whole barkada (including the Pugaks) hears this, there’s no one but one person to whom we would all be dedicating this to. and it is you, yes Juci, YOU! So here it is….

Astroboy – Banat ng girl to a torpe guy: “If you’re willing to chase me…I promise, I’ll run slow.”
Odiba? panalo and para sa yo talaga! hahahaha

Anyway, the night’s not getting any younger so I have to retire soon just like the rest of this household. Yes, you heard it right, tonight, EVERYONE (except for me) unusually had to sleep early because tomorrow is going to be a big day (meaning big traffic, big mrt/lrt crowds and big amount of effort just to be able to get to school and back home in one piece). Everything is going to be a big chaotic bowl of mess again in the metro and beyond. My family’s going back to having fast food dinner once again and going home very late at night. Good thing I go back to school on Thursday pa, so I can still stay up this late. I just wish my family great luck tomorrow and on all the days up ahead. Never say never. Don’t give up! Have faith in the Lord! Goodnight!

P.S. I’m thinking that it would be much easier for me to remember all the wonderful realizations about God (from Living Water 2010 Bible reflections) if I would be posting it here. Plus I get to share them with those who may come to pass by…

SO for today, Tuesday, June 15, 2010, The title of the reflection is Being Loved and Loving.
“But I say to you,
Love your enemies and
pray for those who
persecute you..”
-Matthew 5:44

I try to do this every once in a while (when I can). I’ve learned the secret to praying for those who make fun of me, for those who disrespect me at times and try not to be overcome by my emotions. Instead, I pray for them that they may realize that what they do is hurtful and unjust. In the same way, I also try not to do anything that I don’t want to be done to me as well. 

Remember, no servant is greater than his master. Therefore, what God has been through, we cannot be exempted from as we all are servants of God Almighty. Good night and God bless you all!
