Our Commitment...

For my Wordless Wednesday entry, kindly scroll down or click HERE.





Serving the LORD comes in many ways...and I am happy to be able to celebrate His words here every Word Filled Wednesday...a very humble way of serving the Lord by sharing and celebrating His love through His words...

I am also thankful and blessed to have a family who taught me the value of generosity...truly, it begins at home. I am also thankful for God's mercy in giving me IT Guy who has been so supportive and understanding with all my "charitable" works.

I am also happy to note that I am able to go and leave work early, allowing me to attend holy mass before heading home. For those who are not familiar, I work in the evening since I work in a call center and our support is for the US. So IT Guy drives me to work at around 7-9PM time frame...and pick me up in the morning at around 5-6AM time frame... If I get to leave work at 5, we go to mass at 5:30AM, then he drives me home...have breakfast together and he go to work while I go to bed. I don't think most bf's are willing to do that... ;)

IT Guy and I (together with some Christian volunteers) will start with our first feeding program for less-privileged children. Well, this is usual for me...but to commit to it as an ongoing project...with IT Guy...is something so so delightful!

And since we all know it is always better to teach a person to fish that to give him a fish, I will also be doing a skill inventory in that community and see if I can bring some livelihood projects for them.

All these things are never easy...but He is helping us do all these things.

So this week, I share the following verse as IT Guy and I made it our commitment to server the LORD. And we shall teach/ pass this on to our children, and our children's children.




"...as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."
- Joshua 24:15

I LOVE this verse! It's on several wall hangings, plaques, needlepoints, etc... all over our home! It is SO important in today's world.
Couldn't agree more with the feed fish/teach fish concept. Teach away!! God Bless your new ministry
Happy WFW!

Awesome verse and photo. Steve and I have this in our home in at least three places that I can think of right off hand, maybe more. I love the gazebo in the photo. We used to have one very similar to it before we moved (over 15 years ago!) and I miss it very much. I'm so glad you're touching the lives of so many - you truly have a servant's heart. Happy WFW to you!
