There Is No Substitute for More Learning

Let me begin with a quatations:"Once a student always a student," and "once a teacher always a teacher."Dewey said;"education is continous process and education is reconstruction of experiences,"Banking on the aforecited quotations, it is undeniably incumbent upon us to keep on growing and developing in the higher institution of learning. The world crisis that engulfs the universe and gives a dismal picture of world economy is one of the vital factor that should motivate and stimulate everyone of us to upgrade our professional and cultural growth. Competition wise, it is conceived that in the years to come,only those who are equipprd with higher education courses have better chances and priorities to be employed and to be promoted in salary and position.The greatest miracle brought forth is man.We are the rational animals endowed with the special gift of
god, the mental capacity to think and to reason out. We have to make the most of that God-given gift to mankind. Otherwise, we will not live up to His expectation of using our rationality to the best advantage. So keep growing educationally!

Unforgettable Experience

At 7:20 a.m. on October 19,2004, my husband and headed our way to Sta.Cruz Elementary School the station where I'm teaching.We passed in a very worst road condition wherein we met an accident when suddenly a drunk motorcycle driver clashed our motor and I broke my femur bone at my right leg and my husband got a big wound in his right foot. But we're fortunate enough that God gave us the second chance to enjoy life despite the trials we've encountered.I never forget the pain and strength that Lord gave me when I was down,I learned that in those times I cling and put my whole trust to our Almighty and he really answered my prayers. Within 6 months I was given a rehabilation leave of absence with pay.When I returned to my work I walk with three feet,with a cane like father Abraham but GOD is merciful and now I can walk well and it seems I never met that terrible experience.

Stay In The Sunshine!

I was impressed by the story I read about the life of a little girl who touched my life so much in a very special way.This little girl in London won a prize at a flower show.Her entry was grown in an old cracked teapot and had been placed in the rear attic window of a rundown tenement house.When asked how she managed to raise such a lovely flower in such an unlikely environment, she said she moved it around so it would always be in the sunlight.
As a true believer of Jesus Christ it reminded me of His words in John 15:9 to abide always in his love.We must keep ourselves continually in the warmth o Christ's love by showing our love to others so that peace and love will grow and chaoes be avoided.STAY IN THE SUNSHINE! of God's love.
