The title of the talk is actually “Horror Parents”. I did not expect that I would be greatly strcuk by this talk as I though somehow I am being a good parent to my child. To my surprise it was not just about parenting but it gives emphasis to children in preparing them on how to become a parent better than their own. I came to realize the pains I experienced from my childhood is almost the same set of pains I am giving to my child. I felt guilty that despite the shortcomings of my parents I should have been a good daughter to them so I would be able to impart to my son how it is to become better someday. I am indeed hoping that the cycle of pain stops with me as I put my trust to the Lord as He helps me raise my child in church.
Having a happy relationship doesn’t come from a smoke of a cigarette. It is a choice to express the feelings of love and affection to a person you are having relationship with. It could be your better half, your parents, your siblings, your friends or anybody you usually interact with. Our preacher or our relationship mentor gave some pointers that leads to a happy relationship. He used the word “Happy” and made it as an acronym. H stands for Hug and Hold more often. A for ask for forgiveness. P for pray together. P for play together. Y for You attend feast together.
Civil status does not necessarily define somebody’s happiness. Whether a person is single or married, anybody has the choice and is given the chance to smile and experience joy in life. It’s not just about to love and be loved. A single person need not enter into a relationship to be happy the same way as married individuals need not go back to being single so as to be free and embrace happiness again. It is about taking advantage of the unconditional love freely served for everyone – the real love coming from above, the love of our Lord.
Singles must pray for the right one to come to their life but must also prepare themselves to become right as well. Married couples must make use of the blessings of the Lord which includes holy sex. There is a perfect timing for any of it, just don’t forget to start things with a prayer.
It was as if the preacher is directly talking to me and my partner during his talk. It was entitled “Heart” as part of the session “His & Hers”. The topic has taught us about Love and Respect between husband and wives. For a man to earn respect from his wife, he must make the first move of showing her love. And though women are basically easy to please, their score board always gets back to zero everyday so men should always refresh his points and do something that can be appreciated by his wife. Wives on the other hand must learn to submit to her husband and make him feel that he is in control when it comes to family matters.
Last week’s talk (July 27, 2014) as a first part of the series “His + Hers” is about appreciating the differences of the opposite sex. It actually has something to do with “mind” or our thinking about the other gender (a girl or a boy depending on the reader). It has been said and we knew for a fact that we have been made equal but not similar and more so we have distinct characteristics from one another.
Men should understand women as multi-taskers while on the reverse men tends to be more focused or single-taskers as they say. Given this, girls must not expect boys preference to be the same as theirs.
Simply put boys or girls, we must be able to accept the uniqueness of anybody for us to be into a happy relationship.
Nobody would ever want to experience a calamity but it seems that some people take it as an opportunity to be able to avail a financial assistance that they do not really need. I might say that I am guilty of it somehow, though not this time as our house in the province did went through the wrath of typhoon Glenda. Others take advantage of it so they can avail something from www.shopforbags.com with the use of their borrowed money. Practically speaking, it is not bad really but this chance is being given not just for us to enjoy a thing but for us to remember our priorities in life it may not be the same thing everyday but at least it is based on our purpose.
