Tagged by Ka Uro.

Thanks for the tag Ka Uro!

Rules: List of seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre. Whether or not they have words or even if they're any good, they must be the songs you enjoy right now. Post this instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs then tag 7 people and see what they are listening to.

I'm a guy who loves to hear music with the difference as they say. That difference is the possitive message of hope, inspirations, way of life and motivations. Here are some samples I'm very fond of listening and/or makes me pause and reflect everytime it is being played. Hope you like it as well.

1. Take Me Out Of The Dark by our very own Gary V.
This is quite a hit due to his very personal testimony.

Just what it is to me,
Sometimes I just don't know,
What keeps me in your love...
Why you never let me go...

2. Love Will Be Our Home by Sandi Patti
This is our choice for wedding song when we tied the knots December 18, 1993. No expiration date on the contract. (lol!)

If home, is really where the heart is...
And home must be a place we all can share,
And even with our differences, our hearts are much the same
And where love is...we come together there.

Whenever words are kindly spoken
where a vow is never broken
We can live together there,
Love will be our home

3. I'm not religious, I just Love the Lord by Scott Wesley Brown (SWB)
I love its beat, it could make you ride along and of course! with a great message.

And there's no doubt about it!
I really really wanna shout it. (now)
Singing, I'm not religious,
I just love the Lord!

Well, you can go to church every Sunday
And think its kind of neat.
But the good Lord wants you to love Him full time
Seven days a week.
Well you can give away anything you own.
And even, give it to the poor
But listen my friend, in the end
You gotta love the Lord

4. What A Difference You Made In My Life (Sorry 'Forgot the singer)
This was one of my favorite song I sing when we were forming a band then. Unfortunately the band was disbanded, perhaps because I'm one of the singer or maybe I'm different (LOL!)

What a difference you made in my life (2X)
You're my sunshine, day and night.
Oh what a difference you made in my life.

What a change you have made in my heart (2X)
You replace all the broken parts,
Oh What a change you have made in my heart.
Love seems to me is just a word in a song.
That have been way overused
But now I've join in the singing,
Cause you've shown me love's true meanin'.
That's why I want to spread tne news Ohh!..

5. We Are The Reason (also sang by M. Nievera)
Plenty of singers sang this quite old song, but the convictions that goes with it never fails to stir my heart evertime...
As little children, we would dream of Christmass morn
The giving of our toys, we knew we'll find
But we never realized
A baby born one blessed night
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives.

We are the reason that He gave His life
We are the reason that He suffered and died
To the world that was lost,
He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live.

6. Hanggang.... by Wency Cornejo
'Love its melody and conservative delivery of the singer. Stir up the romantic person within...

Ilang ulit na bang tinatanong sa 'kin, hanggang saan?
Hanggang saan, hanggang kailan ang aking pagmamahal?,
Hanggang may tinig pa akong naririnig dito sa 'ting daigdig,
Hanggang may musika akong tinataglay, kita'y iniibig.

Giliw wag mo sanang isiping ikaw ay aking lilisanin
Di ko magagawang lumayo sa iyong piling
At nais kong malaman mo kung gaano kita kamahal...

...hanggang may pag-ibig laging isisigaw, tanging ikaw....

7. Skyline Pigeon by Elton John
Who can not remember this hit?? 'Love this one.

Turn me loose from your hand. Let me fly to the distant land.
Over greenfields, tress and mountains, Flowers and forest fountains
All along the lane of the skyway
For this dark and lonely room, projects a shadow lies in gloom
And my eyes are mirrors of the world outside
Thinking of the ways that the wind can turn the tide.
And this shadow turn to purple into blue...

Now, I will tag these persons...Wendy, Malaya, Raven, Blue, Bing, Prayer Warrior,and Luchie

Make Yourself Lucky

Do you wish you had better luck? Then stop wishing and start making it so. Good luck does not just randomly appear. Good luck comes to those who attract it. Live this day as if it is the most precious and important day in your life, and you'll make yourself lucky. Seek ways to provide real, lasting value to others, and you'll make yourself lucky.

Be anxious to learn, to explore, to hone your skills and you'll make yourself lucky. Live with patience, discipline, integrity and a commitment to truth, and you'll make yourself lucky.

Focus on the positive possibilities, and you'll make yourself lucky. Take the actions that will manifest the best of those possibilities into reality, and you'll make yourself lucky.

There's no limit to the amount of good luck you can enjoy when you take the positive, productive actions that will bring it your way. Make yourself lucky, and experience for yourself how great it can be.

--R. Marston--

Do your best and God will do the rest. Truly..., luck favors those who works for it.
Have a blessed day!

Colossians 4:5
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.

This week is holy week….again. And as I notice, every time it comes, it comes with different traditional activities and beliefs that until now I still find it strange and illogical. (well…people varies!)

Being a Bible believing Christian, it saddens me to see people punishing themselves while walking on the road and even nailing themselves to the cross with a serious consideration that in this manner, their sins, however big it was, could be thoroughly forgiven. I don’t want to sound like a “holier than thou” preacher here but I feel that our risen Lord is greatly insulted whenever this annual performance of self punishment and “pain inflicting sacrifice” are believed very seriously to atone for one’s sins or decrease it as others claim. It is like telling Christ that His death on the cross is not enough or worse,…that He died in vain, that’s why I’m gonna do this again. Hey! There is nothing wrong with remembering it through prayers, meditations, fastings or dramas but seriously believing that you could be forgiven by doing it yourself is another thing. It’s a traditional deception. A useless consideration. Another sad thing is…that some of those who did it (if not all) embrace their old ways, such as drunkeness, womanizing, gambling cheating and the likes, once again after the holy week, for next year he will still be forgiven anyway by repeating such personal pledge. No genuine change occurred. And as I focused deeper on this thought, I find it very heart-breaking …..for God as well.

IT IS FINISHED! It’s done! What He did, He did it once and for all. Full!, Complete!, and Enough!, for all who will believe and live for Him! Forgiveness is available for those who will ask for it (1 John 1:9). Accept Him now as your Lord and Savior and experience a life changing miracle that traditions and religions cannot provide. Claim that promise! (2 Corithians 5:17)

Oooppps, I may have made a strong drink today and not just milk. Well truth sometimes hurt but it can definitely set us free. And Hey! ‘am not religious, I just love the Lord!

Have a blessed day!

1 Peter 3: 18
For Christ died for sins once and for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.
