Salamat Po Nanay Sa Pagmamahal Na Inialay Mo

Salamat Po Nanay Sa Pagmamahal Na Inialay Mo



Mga kaibigan last May 16, 2010 ay dumulog ako sa inyo ng Prayers Request for Nanay dahil sa malubha nyang karamdaman.  Ipagpaumanhin po ninyo kung hindi  ko man na elaborate ang kanyang mga naging sakit. Sa kahilingan ng aking may bahay.  Taos puso ako nagpapasalamat sa mga nagtugon ng pakikiisa sa panalangin. Kahapon, August 28, ay pumanaw na po ang aking mahal na Nanay. Siya ang aking butihing mother in law.

Hindi po batid ng lahat na meron syang liver and lungs cancer  at ito ay nasa stage 4 na po. Huli kami nagkita ni Nanay ay nung nagbakasyon ako nitong summer. Sa aking pagbalik sa bansang Saudi ay nagsimula na dumaing na masakit ang kanyang tyan. Kinapa ng aking sweetheart ang kanyang tiyan doon  ay matigas na bukol na wari mo kaparte ng ribs. Kaya kaagad nila pinasuri sa kanilang doctor. Sa pagsusuri ay may pagkaduda na sya sa kalagayan ni nanay. Nag advised si doctor Puray na ipasailalim sa sa CT Scan. Paglabas ng resulta ay kaagad naman ibinalik sa doctor. Doon na nga po nakita ang bukol na namuo sa kanyang liver. Upang magkaroon pa ng masusing pagsusuri ay inirekomenda sila sa isang Oncologist specialist na doctor for liver. Muli po siya pina CT Scan. After na mabasa ng doctor and resulta ng CT Scan ay balak sana ipa Chemoembolization (trans-arterial chemoembolization or TACE) si nanay. Subalit nang basahin uli yung CT Scan result ay meroon nadaanan na bukol sa lower part of the lungs. Kaya nag advised uli siya para ma ct scan ang lungs. Sad to say na malaki na rin ang mga bukol sa kanyang lower left and right lungs. At this point ang nasabi ng doctor ay sa edad ni Nanay ay baka hindi nya makaya ang dalawang operations. "Malalampasan man nya ang liver chemoembolization pero di makakayanan ang para sa lungs. Depende na lang sa inyo kung aggressive kayo gumastos. But walang assurance na ma-extend ng mahabang panahon  si nanay, mapalad na po kung aabot si nanay ng 6 months. " paliwanag ng doctor.

Sa mgapanahon na iyon ay andoon ang lungkot at takot na mawala ng maaga si nanay. At halos araw-araw ay umiiyak ang aking maybahay. Wala an ako magawa kundi maicomfort sya sa phone at internet.

Sadyang napakabait ni nanay. Kahit na masakit na masakit ang kanyang tyan ay pinipilit parin na maging normal.  Isa na rin sa dahilan na ayaw nya magalala at magastusan ns malaki ang kanyang mga anak. Ganun pa man ay patuloy pa rin namin binibigay ang mga gamot na kailangan upang maibsa lang ang sakit ng kanyang nararamdaman. Last 3 weeks ago ay na confined sa hospital na halos 1 linggo.  Subalit itong mga huling araw ay di na sya nakakatulog at naglalambing sa kanyang mga anak. Minsan ay nagpapayakap siya kay misis ay umiiyak. Dahil may takot sya na maiwan sila. Gusto pa nyang tumagal ang kanyang buhay para makasama nya pa ang kanyang mga anak at higit sa lahat mga apo.

Ganaun pa man ang sabi ko nga kay misis. Napakabuti ng Diyos. Binigyan Nya tayo ng pagkakataon na pagsilbihan si nanay at maibigay ang lubos na pagmamahal sa kanya. Ang amin panalangin ay huwag na sana mahirapan pa ng matagal si nanay. Tinugon ng Panginoon ang aming mga panalangin sa Kanya. Naniniwala po ako na ngayon ay lubos na ang kahingawaan ang nararamdaman ni nanay. At masaya na sya sa piling ng ating Poon Maykapal...

Marami po salamat nanay sa pagmamahal na ipinadama mo sa amin. Sa pagaaruga na binibigay mo sa aming mga anak. Sa malasakit at pagaalala mo sa bawat isa sa amin.

Mahal na Mahal Ka na Namin Nanay.


Nahum 1:7
The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?" For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

John 14:1-4
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God[; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.

... because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father."

Romans 8:31-39
What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: " For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:52-57
In a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory." "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

2 Corinthians 4:13-16
It is written: "I believed; therefore I have spoken." With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you in his presence. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

1 Thessalonians 4:13
Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.

Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God

Hebrews 2:14-15
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death — that is, the devil — and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

Hebrews 4:14-16
Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

1 Peter 1:3-9
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith the salvation of your souls.

1 Peter 5:6-7
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Revelation 7:15-17
And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, "they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

Revelation 21:4
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

An Opened Letter From Mr Bang Lu Min



An Opened Letter From Mr Bang Lu Min 



I received an email about an opened letter by Bang lu min ( One of the Hong Kong tourist survivor). I am not sure if it really authenticated or just merely fabricated.  Rather than forwarding around the mail loop. It is better for me to post it and I hope someone would enlighten us of this letter.

So Here is the letter:

Postscript of a bloodbath
by: Bang Lu Min (One of the Hostages)
 

Mr. Mendoza was already upset even before he saw on television what the policemen did to his brother. The other tourists who remained inside the bus were complaining. Wei Ji Jiang wanted to go to the bathroom. Dao Chi Yu was hungry and the rest were just groaning and whining like they have forgotten that our lives rest in Mr. Mendoza's hands.


The hostage taker, as you know him was really nice. He treated us okay and even let the elders and the children leave the bus. He said your policemen treated him unfairly. He was a policeman too and was accused of doing something he had no knowledge of. But your government didn't listen so he used us to get everyone's attention.


Things would have never turned for the worst if he didn't see how his family was dragged out of their house and taken into custody. He was watching the news all the time as we huddled around each other behind the bus. He shouted some words in your language then started shooting in the air. A girl about my age started screaming. Mr. Mendoza demanded her to stop but she didn't understand English. God, he had to slash her neck with a knife just to put her to rest. Her boyfriend who tried to hit him was shot in the head.


Tension was rising. You can see in his face how scared and confused he was. The bus driver ran away leaving him alone with strangers from a distant land. I can see him walking across the aisle, sometimes pointing his machine gun to one of the tourists. But he tried his best not to hurt us, especially those who really cooperate.


I guess its in your nature not to inflict pain on others unless it was necessary. I remember him saying that he will free us before sundown and implored us to forget everything when we return home. But his words don't matter now. The policemen were trying to force their way in, while we all lied down to shield ourselves from bullets. Mister Mendoza blindly shoots at his enemies which I think kept them from rescuing us. I hear sobs under the chairs. Some were even shouting the names of their loved ones even when the air merely eat their words. Kevin Tang tried to escape when the glass door was was shattered, but one shot and he slumped on the floor with blood gushing from his mouth.


Heavy rain pitter-pattered on the rooftop. In old Chinese saying, it means an end to a struggle. Finally, somebody was able to open the escape hatch at the back of the bus. Freedom. But I knew Mister Mendoza was still alive. I knew he was just waiting for a chance to strike back at his enemies. So I told those around me not to escape. Let the authorities come for us instead. Then there was gunfire. He was firing at his enemies with a machine gun. Those who were at the escape hatch fled abandoning us once again. It's like a nightmare with no end and to wake up means a certain death. Then somebody from outside the bus threw a canister. It forced out a black smoke that is so painful to the eyes and putrid smelling to the nose. People started screaming. We cannot breathe. Some ran in front of the bus but Mister Mendoza warned them of stray bullets. It was too late. One was hit on the head, the other was hit on the shoulders. Bullets were now flying. Its like the authorities thought we were all dead. Mister Mendoza finally realizes his mistake and said sorry to everyone, dead or alive. He then ran towards the front of the bus where he would meet his maker. As he passed by my chair with bullets whistling overhead, I clutched my hand on the velvet curtain and wrapped it around my face. All I could think of was to stay alive - for my child who is waiting for me back in Xinjang. I know I will survive,


I will come home.

National Mourning Day "Deepest Sympathy"

National Mourning Day "Deepest Sympathy"



President PNinoy Aquino declared August 25 as National mourning day.  He ordered Philippine flags to be flown at half-mast in remembrance of the hostage victims

After 11 hours of hostage taking, 8 Hong Kong Nationals and hostage taker ended their lives. The Hong Kong Government raise black travel ban to their people to travel in  the Philippines. Where as the black travel ban is the highest alert for travelers. This incident have a big impact to our tourism. Many have canceled their fight to the Philippines.  While others rebook their return earlier in response to this ban. Some continue their travel because they believe that it is just a rare incident. Still those who have traveled want the assurance of our government of their safety.

There are many to blames in the tragic hostage taking last Monday. What importance now is that the  Philippine Government must have specific plans in this kind of hostage situation.

Thus this is a rare situation. I would like to request the Hong Kong and Chinese people not to blame the Filipinos for the incident.

I, as a Filipino, would like to express my deepest sympathies and condolences to the families of Hong Kong tourist hostage victims and to the Mendoza families.

Finish Line

Finish Line





video

This is a repost from unknown author. Very inspiring of a known runner.
*********

Derek Redmond was favoured to win the 400 m race at the1992 Barcelona Olympics.
However, dissapointment came about 250 m from the finish, his hamstring tore.
As a stretcher beares made their way over to him, he knew that he wanted to finish the race.
He began to hobble along the track with pain atched upon his face.

Suddenly, a large man pushed through the crowds, fighting back security.
The man was his father, Jim Redmond.
"You don't have to finish this", he told to his weeping son.
"Yes I do", Dereck Declared.
"Well, then," said Jim, " We're going to finish this together".

What made the father do that... to leave the stands and meet his son on the tracks?
It was the pain of his child.
His son was hurt and fighting to finish the race so the father came to help him.

God is like that. When we are hurting fighting to finish, He comes and help us.
Our prayers may be awkward, aor attempts may be feeble.
But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it,
not the one who says it, our prayers do make difference.

Sometimes when we encounter pain and problems, we blame God of our misfortune. But the Lord promise us that He will not leave us. He allows these things to happen in our life so that we learn to love & close to Him.

Deuteronomy 31:8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."

Today the Philippines commemorate the 27th death anniversary of Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr.  Benigno Aquino Jr born November 27, 1932. He was a Senator, Governor of Tarlac and opposition leader who stood against Ferdinand Marcos. He was assassinated  in Tarmac of Manila International Airport. I was in a barber shop while the radio news caster announced that Ninoy is shot & murdered. "Patay Na! Malaking gulo ito" (this is a big problem) as my barber said.

Is it really  Filipino worth dying for? Despite of the threat for his life, he still considering facing the giant rather than living apart from his mother land. Even the Marcos concerned of Ninoy safety. They warned him that if he return he might get kill. His death in August 21, 1983 rose the patriotism of the every Filipino. Where the Marcos were accused of mastermind of Ninoy's death.

After 3 years of Ninoy's death,  people's power arise that lead to the ousted the former President Ferdinand E. Marcos from power.  After 27 years the mastermind of the murder is not yet resolve. Lately the soldiers that have been accused of the participation in the assassination were acquitted & released. During the Cory Aquino presidency, she's not able to solve this mystery of Ninoy's death. Now the son of Ninoy, Noynoy, is the President. Maybe his truth commission  will reopen this case.

After 27 years our debt is rising to the roof. Graft and corruption is still exist. I hope that our President PNoy will change the course of history. Where his parents fought for the freedom, democracy and good government. May the legacy of Benigno Ninoy Quino Jr will continue. In order his death may worth dying for...

“Embassy on Wheels” in Al Khobar during Ramadan 

The plan of the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh to hold another outreach service in Al Khobar during Ramadan will push through, Ambassador Antonio P. Villamor assured the Filipino community in the Eastern Province. The next “Embassy on Wheels” (EOW) will take place once again at the International Philippine School in Al Khobar (IPSA) on 19-20 August 2010 (the 9th and 10th day of Ramadan). About 900 applicants from the previous EOWs are expected to come and claim their new Machine Readable Passports (MRPs); while about 500 more from the last EOW on July 15-16 should return to sign and affix their thumb marks on their MRP applications. Besides, there are those who will yet apply for passport renewal or first passports of their newly born children. The EOW pegs the number of such applications that can be encoded to 400 on Thursday and 200 on Friday, and those that will exceed the cut-off may pay the processing fee but will have to return for the next EOW to complete the procedure. They will then be prioritized in the processing of their passport applications. The EOW also accommodates an unlimited number of applicants for notarial services, for the servicing of documents such as affidavits, Special Powers of Attorney as well as issuance of certification needed for police clearance application. Thus, to provide maximum service to the public despite the observance of fasting by some of its members, the EOW team will maintain its schedule from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Thursday and from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Friday. In view of the solemnity of the holy month of Ramadan as practiced in the Kingdom, Ambassador Villamor appeals to the transacting public to do their part to ensure and maintain a peaceful and orderly conduct of the EOW services. “I also call on the hardworking community leaders and EOW volunteers from different organizations, who stand at the vanguard of the Embassy, to always guard their ranks and their names by upholding the highest standards and principles of volunteerism,” the Ambassador counseled. “When conditions are made more difficult not only by the sheer number of applicants and soaring heat, but also by hasty and unfair criticisms from some unappreciative sectors of the public who benefit from the Embassy’s outreach, the challenge is for us to continue to deliver conscientious and wholehearted service,” he added.
