You Passed the Test… God

When and how? I wasn’t aware that God gave me a test and I aced it.  There is a quote that says “Never get tired of doing little things for others, sometimes those little things occupy the biggest parts of their hearts”.  Those little things also occupy God’s heart and makes Him smile when He thinks of you.

This week has been a series of small favors that happened to me that I would never thought as a test from God but rather compassion and act of kindness towards our fellow human being. 

 It all started on Tuesday night when I got a call from my family in Indonesia and asked if they could borrow some money to take my niece to the hospital who had an asthma attack.  I didn’t have enough money in my checking account to give them.  Furthermore, I had to stretch the little money I had until Friday when I got my paycheck.  I explained to them my situation, they understood and said it was okay.  Even though I said no, I couldn’t help not to think about my niece.  I had a check that my son was going to help me deposit the next day.  So, I made a call to my son and explain the situation.  He agreed to borrow me some money and I would pay him as soon as he deposited the check.  So, I sent the money and mission accomplished.  

On Thursday morning, while I was on business call, an unknown number called me.  Five minutes later, the number called me again.  I couldn’t pick up the call because I was still on business call.  I also have a habit not to pick up any unknown calls and let it go to my voicemail and return the call later.  Because the caller called me twice in 5 minutes, I decided to call the number back after I finished with my business call.  He called me to inquire about my car that I have been trying to sell for 5 months. I sold my car within an hour at a good price.  He told me that he bought the car for his wife.  I love the car and wish I have the money to fix it because it was a car that my children drove during their school years.  I have been praying to God for a buyer that will appreciate the car and take good care of it as it has been good for my children.  

After I was done with the transaction to sell my car, I went to my kitchen to get a cup of tea and I heard the still small voice said “you passed the test”.  I recognize His voice and I asked Him how I passed the test.  He brought to my remembrance what I did on Tuesday night for my niece. I thought that was a test and I didn’t know it.

Later in the evening while I was at my part time job, walked into the store, a tall handsome young man with wavy golden blond hair.  He caught my eyes because of his stature.  He asked me if we have California King bedsheet.  I told him I only had one on clearance if it has not sold yet.  The set was still there and he bought it for $92.05.  He gave me 5 twenty dollar bills and I asked him if he had 5 cents.  He said he didn’t have any and I told him I would take care of 5 cents for him from my change wallet.   He made a comment that it was nice of me to do so, and I told him “God is good” and he replied to me “indeed, God is good”.  Before he left the counter, he gave me his change and I told him it was only 5 cents and he didn’t have to.  He said “because of your kindness, it’s for you”.  He tipped me 8 dollars J

As the night went, I couldn’t stop thinking about him because he somehow looked familiar to me – his wavy golden blond hair, tall and his demeanor.  Suddenly, I remembered years ago while I prayed I got visited by an angel that looked just like him.  I thought “WOW”.  I got visited by an angel after I passed the test J

We never know the little things we do for others as random act of kindness can be a test from God.  I looked back at the events this week.  So, I passed the test by giving little money to my family, then He answered my prayer and brought a buyer that I prayed for plus good price for the car.  He later sent His angel to confirm His law of multiplication.  Do you know how many 5 cents in 8 dollars = 160 pieces! When we bless His children, He blesses us in multiplication.  We never know what that multiplication will be.  It can mean health, wealth, relationship, friendship, children, protection, etc.  He is a father with a big heart for His children and loves to bless His children and meets our needs. 

This week also reminded of a story in the Bible when a poor woman gave all she had in the offering and Jesus made a comment that what she did will be remembered.  When you have little and you give, you give with your heart.  When you have plenty and you give, you give because you can. It’s the little things that matter the most and it fits perfectly to God’s little tests to us. Have a blessed day!

Good Morning America!

Good Morning America!

Happy Monday!

Spring is here 🙂 weather is getting nicer and warmer!  I am watching the miracles of life once again unfolding before my eyes.  Trees that are leafless, suddenly springing with fresh green leaves.  Bulbs that are dormant for three seasons, pushing its shoots and displaying its splendid colors and fragrance.  The birds are singing praises to the Lord once the sun peaks in the East.  I love  4 seasons with its beauty and uniqueness.  Thank you, America for sharing your beauty with me!

As I sat in my porch spending quiet time with lover of my soul.  I watch the birds flying from one tree to another and chirping, singing a melody to the Lord.  I can’t help myself not to praise and worship Him.  Each day is a miracle from God 🙂 When I woke up this morning  and able to enjoy my cup of coffee, and most of all living in the land of free who has been so generous in giving and sharing her land, fruits, and freedom with me.  I can’t help it and thank God for America!

I pray God that you will bless America, her land, leaders, servicemen/women, people and that you will protect her from the evil one.  I pray for your blood to cover America and no weapons against her shall prosper.  I lift up the coming election, as your word says in Psalm 75:6-7 that promotion only comes from you and yes we have free will to choose because you are a loving God and you will not impose your agenda to us.  I pray Lord, you will raise up president and leaders who have a heart and love for America and for the betterment of America and her people.  I pray you will lead all of us to truth and nothing but the truth as the truth will set us free.  I pray you will hover over America like you did on Genesis 1:1 and pour your spirit of truth, open the ears of the people to hear the truth, unveil our eyes to see clearly.  I know you have plans for America and you love America, the apple of your eyes.  I pray you will pass by America with your goodness, mercy, love, and grace.  Please protect all candidates during this election and may your plan for America prevail because you are an awesome, merciful God, slow to anger and love to bless your children in Jesus name, amen.

Everyday is full of miracles from God 🙂 look around and you will count your blessings and smile 🙂 God loves you and most of all, He knows you by name 🙂

Have a blessed day!

Tribute To A Loving Friend


Saturday, November 7th, 2015 was another sad day in my life as I had to put my baby to sleep.  He was a Shar-pei and his name was George Winston.  He lived a good life for almost 13 years (2 months short).  He was born on January 1, 2003 and was adopted to our family on Valentine’s Day 2003.  We had many nicknames for him : big bear, pooh bear, Winnie the pooh, bapa, and poohey.  He was a handsome big boy with a gentle heart, full of love for his family.

He gave our family so much joy and love and filled the void of missing Chester.  He was the combination of my first and second Shar-pei. He was gentle yet fierceful.  He seemed to know when to go to bed.  When the clock rang at 9:00 pm, he would go upstairs to my bedroom and sleep on his bed or I would find him taking over half of my bed.  He would not move.

He was loving, loyal and protective of his family.  He watched over us with all his heart.  He intimidated every person who came to our home, no matter how many times they have been in our home.  He would bark and the sound of his bark would have made you run for a cover.  He would encircle and check you out and make sure you were good, just like a bodyguard would do until I told him it was okay.  He was not bothered with little things happening in the home but watch out if you were on my property.  He would not hesitate to run after anything that would endanger his family.

He loved to lay in the sun and enjoy the afternoon rays in the porch.  He taught the little ones who the boss in the house.  He would let them play and put them in their place when they were out of line.  He would look at me with his puppy eyes and tell me that he got me covered.

I know I will cry for many days ahead and will miss him dearly.  My heart hurts so much of losing him very quick without warning, but on the other hand, I am glad he did not suffer.  It was unexpected..  He didn’t go alone.  I was there with my daughter, my very best friend, my niece and her family came to say good bye to him.  All my children had their time with him and said good bye via facetime.  Thank God for technology 🙂 We love our Winston.

Dogs are faithful, loyal, loving and willing to lay down their lives for their loved ones. Dog is the only animal when you spell it backward, spells GOD.  Some people said there is a rainbow bridge where our loved pets will be waiting for us.  Some people say animals don’t have spirit and when they pass, they are gone forever.  But I believe our love is their ticket to heaven.  I believe God gives special privilege for our pets to be in heaven with us.  God loves His creation.  The Bible said when a sparrow falls, God knows.  He knows and loves Winston as much as I do.  I know I will see him again in heaven 🙂

Good Morning America!

Good Morning America!

Happy Wednesday 🙂

It’s drizzling and cold today.  The weather has changed from a beautiful warm summer to a cold and wet Fall day.  I see the beauty of the season as God is preparing His creation to hibernate and getting them ready for winter.  The Lord is so gentle to His creation as He is letting them adjust to the next season where a lot of trees and animals will go to sleep and rest until spring comes.

America, I see the Lord is also taking care of you and preparing you for the next election.  I pray God will lead American people to make the right choices for what’s best for America and most of all, I pray each person who votes will be led by God.  I pray God will raise up leaders in America who have the fear of the Lord, wisdom, love for America and heart for the country and people.  I pray Lord, that your spirit will hover over America, guide us to all truth and expose anything that is not right before the people.  Awaken the people and give them eyes to see and ears to hear what the Lord is saying about America.  Lord, I also pray you will raise up intercessors to pray for America because I know, Lord you love America and your eyes are still upon her in Jesus name, amen.

As The Lord commanded, I bless Israel and pray for peace in Jerusalem and Middle East.

Have a sonshine day 🙂

Merry Christmas :)

Christmas Is What You Have In Your Heart – Susy Pujiro

Christmas is the season of giving, the season of Joy, the season of peace on earth as a savior was born.  We celebrate the birth of Jesus.   In Matthew 2:11, the three wise men came to see Jesus and brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.   The gifts have some meaning.

Gold represents something precious.  Gold can represent people you love.  Do you only think of your family members or relatives in Christmas season? Do you only visit them in Christmas season?  If people are precious, we should honor and love our family and relatives in every season of our lives.

Frankincense represents praise and perfume.  Your praise and worship are like a sweet smell to the Lord.  Perfume represents something smells good.  So Frankincense represent of how you see people and how people see you too.  Do you have good thoughts then it will be like sweet beautiful smell or it will be stinky like a skunk.  But whatever you think of a person, then it’s the perfume you projects about the person.  The same with other’s view of you.  What fragrance do you project…?

Myrrh represents oil or Holy Spirit.  It represents your heart if it’s oiled by the Holy Spirit or not.  What do you think in your heart? The Bible says in Luke 6:45 “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good, and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil. For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks”.  What is in your heart? Do you think of good things or evil things?

Christmas also means a season of love…. We give because we love or we love so we give.  No matter how you want to say it, Love = Give.  You cannot give without love.  Even when you give with a grouchy heart,  you are driven by love.  That’s why you give.

I believe Christmas should be every day and every moment.  If we say we love Jesus and He dwells in our hearts, then our heart should beat with love.  Because the heart has to beat so we can live.  Let it be with every heartbeat, there will be a beat of love.

So let love also be our motivation to live our lives that can be an example to the world, not only by words but also by deed.

I wish you “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”

May 2015 be a year of good health, love, peace, joy, happiness, dreams come true and prosperity.

May God’s hands will be upon you all days of your life.

May you count your blessings every day whether it’s small or big.

Because miracle happens every day 🙂

Change of Heart

When love grows cold, the heart changes – Susy Pujiro

I was talking to my friend about her situation two weeks ago. They are currently separated after 15 years of marriage. They haven’t made up their mind yet about what they want to do. I suggested that she works on the relationship if she is not sure about divorce. She said she could work on making the marriage work but it was not going to be the same, because her heart has changed.

I could not help but think about our conversation for the last two weeks. What she said that day was very profound to me. I realize that love also depends on the condition of the heart. I am going to use our hand as the illustration of a heart. When we love someone, we open our heart towards that person like the palm of our hand. When we choose not to love that person, or think the relationship is not working as we think it should be, we turn the heart towards us again and the back of our hand is facing that person. When we cannot make up our mind which way we should go in the relationship, our heart is turned sideways. Depends on which way the heart turns, will be the outcome of your relationship. If the heart turns open like the palm of hand towards the person, then the relationship is restored and as always, both parties have to cooperate and willing to go through the restoration.

In my own experience, when the heart is in the crossroad of the decision, the result has been the back of the hand. The result is not what we want to face, but it happens in 9 out of 10 relationships. Even if you decide to stay in the relationship when you heart has changed, because of kids, money, social status, or the right thing to do. It will not last long because the heart has changed and love is not the same. You are only co-existing and prolonging the situation. Soon or later, you will come to that crossroad again, and you have to make the decision. Just like my friend said, it will not be the same, because her heart changed.

I looked back at my own situation and I could see it clearly now. No matter how much I wanted my marriage to work, it would not work because one of us had a change of heart. The day you think about divorce, the idea has been conceived in the heart. That means, you have had a change of heart about your love and relationship. I believe with all my heart, when a couple is happily married, the thought of divorce will never enter their mind. Because they are in love with each other and their mind is consumed of love towards one another.

Whether, it is the perfect couple with perfect marriage, or the rocky marriage that the writing is all over the wall about divorce, or the odd couple that you wonder why in the first place they get married. All comes to two things, the issue of a heart and love. I always say, no one knows what’s going on behind the closed door 🙂
