I was VERY busy these last few days struggling to finish work before the deadline. I am almost done so far. I visited your blogs, reading your latest post though I did not leave any comments. I love reading posts than writing mine especially during “earth” days. I prefer to use earth instead of hell because I wanna share to you the Gospel last Sunday.

This is what John the Baptist proclaimed,” One mightier than I is coming after me. I am worthy to stoop and loosen the things of his sandals. I have baptized you with water; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

It happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and I was baptized in the Jordan by John. On coming up out of the water he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him.

And a voice came from heavens; “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”

The priest shared his funny stories related to the Gospel about the Baptism of Jesus.

PRIEST: There are lots of names for your child and why you prefer to name him Lucifer? It’s the name of the devil.

MOTHER: Father, it’s the combination of my name and my husband’s.

PRIEST: If you insist, I am not going to baptize your child. I’m sorry.

Another conversation:

PRIEST: Why you chose SM to be the name of your child? It’s the name of a company.

MOTHER: SM is memorable to us. It’s the place wherein we’ve met; the place where he courted me and the place where I answered him “yes”.

The last story:

MOTHER: You know Father, you are unfair! Why you disagree to name my child FX? You baptized her child Mercedes; it’s also the brand name of a car!

PRIEST: Okay Mrs., what you would like me to use, gasoline or kerosene?

The same day, I received a Hiligaynon text message from my friend.

NOEL: Ipangalan ko sa akon bata “LEON”, baliskad sang NOEL.

NIÑO: Sa akon, “ONIN”, baliskad sang NIÑo.

TOTO: Wala ko namian kung muni istorya.

Personally, I named my niece JANINE because her birth date is Jan. 9. Belated Happy Birthday BABY! I missed you! And another niece of mine asked me to suggest a name for her child. Finally, she named him, JHUEM- name combination of her (Julie) and her partner (Emmanuel).

This is Jhuem, my fourth grandchild. Meron pa akong fifth to be baptize this coming Jan. 25. Naging lolo ako at the age of 24.

Hahaha! Si Toto talaga, wala nanami-an kung baliktaran ng pangalan ang pinag-uusapan kasi OTOT ang magiging pangalan ng anak niya. Ayos na joke 'to ah! o",) hahaha!

Janine is good for January 9, napakagaling mo. And Lolo at 24?! apo ng kapatid mo? Whew!

SALAMAT sa nai-share mong gospel last Sunday, hindi ako nakapagsimba. =,(

There's this cool joke I heard once.

"There were three mothers talking about how parents usually name their children with the things they like.

Mom1: I named my daughter Apple because I love eating apples.

Mom2: I named my son Jesus because I love God.

Mom3: (grabs the hand of her son) Let's go Dick, before we get insulted in here!"
