TGIT – 3 Counted Blessings – Vol 3

Welcome to TGIT- # Counted Blessings – Vol. 3 

It’s Thursday once again! Thanks God It’s Thursday! And yes, I am making another TGIT #Counted Blessings series once more. 

Apologies, that it took me some time to continue this series… not that I’m not having a blessings in fact, every new day is a new blessings from God. I just got caught up with community activities and TVM issues plus personal stuffs. But I’m back! ^^ so back! So let’s start!
1. TVM Issue 11 – We’ve released it on 15th July 2016 during Abu Dhabi’s GA. It’s such a blessing that we have added 4 more pages of stories and inspiration! From 24 to 28 pages. Thankful that  CFC-FFL/CFFL brethren are so keen to share their encounter with God! More to go and looking forward to TVM 12.
From my IG –
2. Profile Lodged! – Yes! After more than a year of preparations, back and forth emails, document processing, stress and more – yesterday, 20th July 2016 – finally our profile has been lodged/launched online for our immigration dream/plan. Sharing more of this once this plan becomes actual 🙂 Crossing fingers and needs more prayer on this!

3. God’s Blessing to my Bro! – This is not necessarily within this week, but it has been a blessing to my brother starting this month. . . to be picked and promoted in his field. Although this doesn’t involve such big salary increase, yet what makes it special is that he got it because of his performance! His efforts and performance was the basis for this level up! So way to go Brobro! #ImAProudSister #DonPassio 🙂
There are so much more blessings this week and even in the past few weeks that I haven’t recorded, but these 3 are the major ones!


I know I am blessed and I praise God for always being there for me, for Kokobear and for my family back home! #ThankYouLord

TGIT – 7 Counted Blessings Vol. 2

We are licensed to praise God at all times and I do that in my own private time. But this blog series is an intention to literally count my blessings! Want to know the history? See its 1stvolume here.


1. TVM Editors

I feel so blessed to have them. I don’t want to mention names, but they know who they are. Without them, the magazine will be having some uncorrected terms, grammar errors,  spelling etc. They are a gem! 5 bagsak para sa inyo!!!


2. When Prayers become a Hit! _Week 6


“Ako ba ang nagbago o siya?” This is a  100$ question. But after all these time, I believe it is me who learned to back down. I am not saying I am accepting him totally now – but I am on process and I know I could not do it without God.

3. Mercy Abounds UAE 2016

Been coordinating, preparing props for the stage and hosted it with Kokobear, blessed with service. Thank you Lord.


4. Misericordia –SFL Congress UAE

The whole event was overwhelming, I captured photos and videos and at the same time had the privilege to be one of those who pray over some delegates for the Prayer Tower activity. To the 6 ladies – I shall continue praying for you.

5. My Brother’s Birthday

This was on March 25 – but he posted my gift a bit late, expressing his gratitude… I feel blessed to have this guy! I know I have been a little mean when we were young, but I love him so much! Don Pasio, I am proud of whom you become today! I praise God for sending us great parents who molded us both this way!


5. K-Drama : My Love From Another Star


Koko and I usually watch TV series together, movies most of the time… But it’s been a while since we both shared a time for a Korean drama… For almost 2 years of marriage, this is our first K-Drama J – All I can say is #MasarapMaInLove <3


6. HHLove and other SFLs


It makes me happy that even this HH has gone their separate ways, they are still able to manage to get together and consider each other’s as sisters all the way. It humbles me to hear or see other SFLs recognizing me. I thank them for that especially with the respect they are giving me and Darrelle.


6. Kusina Ni Kayne

I know I’m not a good cook ever since, Mamo can attest to that. But being married puts you in a situation where you start to do “pacham” cooking. It’s been a while since I started my versions of different recipes at #KusinaNiKayne


Thanks for reading! God Bless!

TGIT – 10 Counted Blessings

Inspired by the song Blessings by Laura Story… Every day we go through different challenges that are maybe not good – but could they be God’s way of tapping us and reminding us, hey! I remember you that’s why you are in “this” right now… Almost every talk in the community I attend, we are prompted of the blessings that we have at hand. So I thought, why not make a series of blog about it!?!

Thought of the title and came up with TGIT- # Counted Blessings!

Since Thursday is the start of weekend here in Abu Dhabi, I thought it is a good time to wrap up the week’s events by counting the blessings. There is # (number sign) because I would like to add whatever number of Blessings I get. I’m sure more than these numbers God has bestowed our whole life with grace, mercy and blessings so to sum them up are rarely impossible. It is then not limited or restricted to 10, I can note as many as I could.  
So I’m taking this lead to note them and inspire you my beloved readers to do the same whether by blogging or with your personal diary.
I am starting the series of Thank God It’s Thursday – #Counted Blessings!!!
Disclaimer: I will give my very best to make this a new habit… But I’m not promising it to be on weekly basis. I will try though J

1.    Life

Because it’s the first series, I want to take this opportunity to thank our creator for this life. It is not perfect, nor easy or hard but God has always been a lifetime buddy! All Praises to Him.

2.    Not My Task

This week a colleague thrown her tasks to me and it made me mad inside. I feel like I’m doing almost everyone’s job in the unit. It took me some minutes to recover that negative emotion. But last night’s talk of Bro. Bo – lingers on my head. “See things as blessings, not a problem”… So I condition my mind… and finally after completing the task, I realize I gained something in doing it. Because I learned something new with SAP J 

3.    Week 2 of When Prayers Become a Hit

It’s the second week of this line of mine that I use for the prayers I asked with the CLS Participants. … The office captain has been fairly mellow. ^^ 

4.    Free Foodie – Tues-flat/Weds-office

Last night our cooker didn’t work – but with the generous heart of our flat mates, I got pasta shared by them! Today, Wednesday – when all my food/biscuits are out – here comes extra snacks from our training center! Thank you Lord, #happytummy 

5.    CFFL TVM comOnline Blog

I know not all CFFL Brethren get their The Vineyard Magazine copy – so I thought of a project of making an online TVM Blog. This is not yet approved, but I shall update you soon. I think it is a good way keep the articles and write up circulating the net and indeed inspire not only CFFL members but everyone around the world wide net. Crossing Fingers for its launching. Thank you Lord for blessing our writers with this talent. 

6.    Down on Memory Lane – RC, Phil, Pipers and Curly Tops

To talk to old good friends is always a blessing. I went around the market and saw this childhood chocolate – Curly Tops, made me smile and chatted  with Phil and RC. Also the active Pipers chatroom is making me really smile. It’s good to know that even with our distance, we all still connect. Thank you Lord for Technology! 

7.    Bo Sanchez Talk on YouTube – 22/03

While Editing TVM10 – I had Bro. Bo my buddy on YouTube and listened his talk about being a Problem Magnet, or a Blessing magnet? The rest is history, that talk inspired this blog too! 

8.    Miracles in Heaven

To watch it last week is a blessing and over the days – the scenes and lessons have been playing all over on my head. I hope everyone get a chance to watch it. 

9.    Upcoming CFFL Echo Conference

Excited for a full-packed April! That means more teachings and blessings are coming their way. Thank you Lord for the gist of Community. 

10.  Blog Views

Last year I gave a shout out to 10,000 views of this blog: #InMyHeart – a mile stone for my almost 6 years of blogging. Last night I check out my latest blog views and showed me 14,000+ and counting!!! Isn’t it amazing!? that means I’m almost half of the 10,000 views created in the past 6 years just 3 months this year! Thank you for the interest everyone. I will try my best to make things better and interesting. J
