The Christmas Inbox

Blessings do abound us whenever the Yuletide season comes. When I was a young child, this time of the year is the event I looked forward to experience. Though I did not always have my childish wishes granted.

As I grow older, this season stresses me whenever I would look open the material aspect of embracing the season. The merriment derived from experiencing this loveliest season, of course, is priceless.

Material presents bring joy but what remains the most precious are those that are intangible and are perceived beyond our sight.

Speaking of gifts, here as my final entry for the year 2010 is my inbox for December. [Note: I was unable to transcribe some of the quotes sent in my inbox since I intentionally deleted all the items after my unit had an annoying memory lapse. I have learned later that it was because of the anti-virus application I downloaded and installed in my unit some time in the first week of December.]

“Friend means trusting yourself with someone who has seen you at your worst and loves you anyway…
It means teasing each other and laughing at inside jokes nobody but only the two of you understands…
It means feeling safe enough to talk about anything and having the patience to work with disagreements.
It means counting on someone who sympathizes when you had a bad day, worries about when you’re gone too long…
And always welcomes you with open arms.”
Maricel [December 7, 2010; 3:28pm]

“True happiness is not about a big laugh or tears of joy… It’s about a simple smile whenever you remember someone who made your life simply but completely happy.”
Rhan [December 17, 2010; 7:22pm]

“There is nothing wrong about being happy… especially when you know it’s about time that you deserve to be…”

Mia Bristol [December 9, 2010; 5:31am]

“One of life’s greatest hypocrisy:
‘it hurts when you see the one you love with somebody else,
But still you keep on staring…”
Sandy [December 12, 2010; 8:18am]

“Once you get jealous, that’s the time you could say that you really love that person…
Jealousy is not a sign of no trust but a sign of possessiveness…
A sign that you are afraid that someone might steal your special someone away from you… It’s not a sign of immaturity but rather, Love.”
Dahlia [December 11, 2010; 10:28pm]

“The value of life does not depend on the length of time spend on earth but rather on the amount of love given and shared to people we cared about.”
Maysie [December 13, 2010; 8:36pm]

“There is significance in every moment, and the beauty of life is that you can create your own destiny.”
Jing [December 12, 2010;8:37am]

Kuya Boboy [December 12, 2010; 8:29am]

“One of the lessons life taught me is to let go of the people who cannot treat you right and never bother to waste time pleasing them…
Hold on to those who love you back because they are the one ones who are much worthy…
of your time…
of your love…
A great life is all about doing something rare:
Cherish without comparing…
Forgive without blaming…
And love without counting…
Dahlia [December 11, 2010; 5:27pm]

“Life can be happier and less stressful if we remember one simple thought: We can’t have all that we desire, but God will give us all that we deserve!”
Bu Mam Elinor [December 11, 2010; 9:41am]

“It’s not the presence of someone that brings meaning to life.
But the way, that someone touches your heart that gives life a beautiful meaning.”
Felizardo [December 6, 2010; 11:53pm]

“Every person around you is going to heart you at some point of time… But it’s up to you to decide what is important… the pain or the person.”
Ireed [December 5, 2010; 7:34 am]

“When people walk away from you, let them go. It means that your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you and it doesn’t mean that they are bad people. It means that their part in your story is over!
But the show must go on with its new characters…
Sir Ross [December 14, 2010; 3:29pm]

“Strong people are given much trials and heartaches because it is believed that they can overcome such pain… that they are brave…
But sometimes we get so tired that we just want to scream and give up.
When that certain time comes that you can no longer walk on your own, God helps you carry your pain… For as long as God is here, giving up is never a choice!”
Janelle [December 06, 2010; 8:13pm]

“Wisdom is acquired oftentimes when we stumble, not when we succeed.
Our defeats leave us wiser than our triumphs.
By faith, we live.
By love, we serve.
By patience, we understand.
And by sharing, we give joy!
Mam Michelle [December 11, 2010; 6:30am]

Cheann [November 22, 2010; 8:22pm]

“It is better to make others special… than to assume that you are special to someone…”
Clarin [November 23, 2010; 7:23]

“I am tied but not tired…
I am taken…. But not for granted…
I sometimes give in but not swallowed…
I move a distance a bit but never part…
I sometimes cry but never mess up…
I am a silent fighter but never at anyone’s back…
I sometimes get stuck but never get struck!
I am me… sometimes tossed in the wind but never losing way!”
Sir Ross [November 28, 2010; 9:56 am]

“The happiest people don’t have everything they want.
They make the most out of what they already have.
Misery starts when a person looks at the 10% missing and overlooks the 90% blessings.
We all have our own share of blessings.
Some get them fast, some waits for a long time.
What is important is it comes at a time we most needed it.
God knows best and he will give the best in His own time.
Ireed [November 28, 2010; 10:14 pm]

“A heart that is open to appreciate every blessing should be bigger than the eyes that see what is missing.
Let our blessings be the reason to celebrate life and may that which is missing serve as the inspiration to work for a life that never stops to get better.”
Mam Liza [November 21, 2010; 7;17am]

“I don’t do good things for the sake of impression.
I don’t even give a damn for turn on’s and turn off’s…
I prefer to be seen at my worst attitude not to be disliked or hated
But to be accepted having the most terrible personality I could have
Then I’ll be able to know who deserves me at my best.”
Melanie [November 28, 2010; 8:51 am]

“Denial, like an alibi is a weakest defense… and innocence is the hardest to prove. When everything can be fabricated, there is nothing we can trust to seek for the truth than our conscience.”

“It doesn’t take one great deed to make a name… those little good things you do for others from day to day will define you forever…”

Melanie [November 22, 2010; 8:49am]

“Faith is truly a response to the dialogue of God,
to His Word, to His revelation…
It is the “Yes” which permits divine thought to enter ours…
Maysie [November 28, 2010; 7;16 pm]

“Friendship is like the needles of the clock.
Though we are in the same clock… we are not able to meet for long ad if we meet, it is only for a few minutes… but the most important thing is we stay connected.”
Mam Liza [November 22, 2010; 11:35am]

“Someone defined the real meaning of friendship:
It isn’t based on how many secrets you share, isn’t how well you get along nor how much you like each other, isn’t how people see you together but it appreciates the differences, the gaps, the hindrances, the trials, and still loves you, straight from the heart… without hatred, without judgment, without envy without criticism, only pure acceptance.”
Rosalie [November 20,  2010; 7:42 am]

“The God of love is the God who saves.
We may not see Him but He is certainly around for us.”
Nini [November 25, 2010; 6:47 am]

SMEG [November 17, 2010; 8:01 am]

“God never gives us a burden heavier than we can carry…
No matter what, he wants us to to be more happy than sad.
If birds sing after a storm, why can’t we?
No one has travelled the bridge of success without even crossing the streets of trials…
God never promised us an easy going journey in life, only safety on board…
Mam Jasmin [November 25, 2010; 5:24 am]

“God is always true to His promise, that whatever He started in you, He will take it to completion because He perfectly loves you.”
Mam Jessa [November 24, 2010; 6:48 am]

“God will never give up a burden that you can’t bear…
So, when you have problems that you think it’s impossible to fix,
take it as a complement!
God thinks you can…”
Felizardo [November 22, 2010; 9:12am]

“For every hectic day, God is your quiet rest…
For every painful experience, He is your healing touch…
For every disappointment, He is your hope…
For every turbulent storm, He is your calming peace…
For every hurtful action, He is your forgiving love…”
Melanie [November 21, 2010; 7:16pm]

“God is always true to His promise He started in you.
He will take it to completion because He perfectly loves you…

Nothing is hard if the heart has love…
Nothing is impossible when the heart understands…
And nothing is heavy when God is in your heart…”
Dahlia [November 21, 2010; 10:17am]

“Proving happiness isn’t on how many times you smiled, but it’s finding that sensible reason every time you smile… Stay happy!”
Dahlia [November 23, 2010; 12:44]

Sheena [November 21, 2010; 10:11pm]

“Everyday, we smile and act like nothing’s wrong…
It’s called, putting everything aside and simply being strong…”
Michael [November 21, 2010; 4:20pm]

“When a person loves you, they are proud of you even at your worst…
When a person loves you, they never leave you at your weakest…
When a person loves you, they come back to you after you reject them…
Coz no matter how cruel the situation could be, they make a way to stay no matter how hard it could get…”
Rosalie [November 21, 2010; 5:10pm]

“ A lesson from Sai of Naruto Shippuden:
The best way to escape reality without running is smiling even though, it is fake!”
Sheena [November 23, 2010; 1:40pm]

Kneel… don’t forget to pray and talk to God…

Prayer changes things…”
