It's Time to Pamper Yourself

I am very health conscious but I LOVE sweets. hehehe! In the past, I was always working out. Morning and evening. But the schedule died.

Now, I am an all-around girl. You can also call me the errand girl. hehehe! I have nothing to complain about. I LOVE my ministry (my job). Even when it isn't my passion, I still serve with love and humility. IT'S ALL GOD! GLORY TO HIM ALONE!

I do this. I do that. I run here. I run there. I carry this. I carry that.

I am not a picky girl. I like doing what guys can do although there are some limitations for girls physically. Like carrying really heavy stuff. I never stopped working the day my mom hired me to be a temporary school registrar and at the same time, her assistant. hehehe! I also sell food and give the food to my aunt in the canteen for her to sell to the hungry kids. I make this stuff after work. So those are the things that comprise my everyday life. With all of these in my life, I stopped my body workout. I was healthier then. I could feel that my body has been lacking in exercise lately. We are given the wisdom to take care of the temple of the Holy Spirit. In science, we need balanced diet and exercise. I am doing great with the balanced diet, alright. The exercise just poofed out of my system.

When I woke up today, my body was draining early in the morning. It just really hurts. I could feel my back ache a LOT. Some people at school already had flu. Just the ordinary flu. Our youth pastor volunteered to be a teacher for the Values Education subject so everyday, he visits me at my office. This week, he had a flu. He just got better today. He told me that he took a professional massage last night. Ding ding ding ding!!! That rang my bell. Since there is nothing wrong with getting a massage because my youth pastor did, I asked GOD if I could do it then I did. I needed it. For so long. Deep inside though, I wished I could bring my mom since she needs it more than I do. She said they'll (dad and her) get a massage soon.

Today, GOD pampered me with these wonderful things (in order):
1.) First-time full body massage from an expert and got so relaxed after (my back felt so much better)
2.) Go out to dinner with my long-time friend and her VERY cute and VERY sweet one-year old baby who happens to be my goddaughter for the first time
3.) Watch a comedy show in a jeepney's television for the first time again (the driver switched on the tv)
4.) Be welcomed home with smiles from my parents
5.) Led the prayer with my beautiful parents

This is indeed a PRAISEWORTHY DAY!

I challenge you, my dear friends, to pamper yourself, too. A child of GOD needs to unwind and relax every now and then. After reading this, go pamper yourself then come back and tell me all about it.

I could never do all of these things without GOD in my life. ALL THE GLORY BELONGS TO GOD ALONE!!!

FATHER, THANK YOU FOR THE INCREASE IN EVERY ASPECT OF MY LIFE!!! YOU ALONE ARE WORTHY OF ALL PRAISE!!!

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD!!!

P.U.S.H.

GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY! GOD IS ALWAYS WITH YOU - NO MATTER WHAT!

When you feel GOD's love, OVERFLOW!

Make an impact. Make a difference. Make a ripple. Tip the scale. Be a blessing. Be different.

AH, I loved reading that! Getting a little peek into your everyday life! =) I agree just getting out and being able to do something to kinda pamper yourself (like a massage or shop a little or out to eat) is so good for us all because it's a chance to slow down and relax. Thanks for sharing this post! Have a greatly blessed day!
