"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

God shows me the way. God has got a plan for my life. All I wish to do is to please and serve Him as His humble servant with lasting moral values. The Lord uplifts and strengthens me with His unconditional Heavenly peace and love.
Long ago, I became a New York Certified Nurse's Assistant (NYCNA), providing the best Nursing Care and Health Assistance as a Volunteer to the ones in need.
Looking back, I recall very old memories like,...I left my dear mother's home filled with unconditional love, a warm bed under a cozy roof, my College's Studies, my dear father, personal belongings and friends. I left all I had, because I was searching for my inner dreams, I was looking for the land of freedom and for a better life to live. In a matter of a day, I turned from a well off young girl with family into a poor girl with no relatives and nothing at all, but a couple of suitcases, my inner dreams and a pack of books. Life was not a bed of roses for me, but rather a bed of thorns. The wealthy ones rejected me, and I embraced poverty at a single touch. My dear parents were devastated for my decisions. I must admit that I was hungry back then. I did not eat enough every day when I first arrived in New York, in a cold early spring day over 34 years ago or so. I filled my stomach with Italian bread and American cheese, and I had the city water from the faucet which tasted so badly. It was not easy to get a good job to pay for my bills. In the meantime, I met my daughter's father and his family who helped me a lot back then. Anyway, the mirror showed a very poor image of me, for I was a young girl left in skin and a pack of bones. The cold weather was unbearable. I did not have enough clothing to warm up my feeble body. I am just out of words to explain how I survived. I was so thin back then, even much less than 100 pounds...
When I was a little child, my dear parents and my grandmother taught me good lessons about what life would be all about, so that when I grew to become a mature lady, I would be somebody worth it. Even though I was hungry with an empty stomach back then, I never committed any crime or steal; I never killed an animal for food, nor for any other reason that could cross my mind. Now, I could just never do it, for it will hurt me so badly. I am unable to understand those hearts who do it...
Now, I am a Christian mother and a grandmother, one whose got high ethical standards, one who may serve as a role model with lasting moral values for the future generations to come ahead. People are free to choose right from wrong, and choose their own personal destiny.
Looking back again, I may also recall old memories like,...all heavy burdens over my skinny shoulders, our daily struggles for survival, the unbearable arguments with my Ex-..., worries about my dear baby's health, many bills to pay, the rent, lack of money to make ends meet, the inner pain of becoming a homeless, and many other issues were piling up on my mind. I couldn't figure out what to do in order to solve my problems. I was on the verge of just giving up on life. Yes!! I mean I wanted to die...
One day, my dear Lord appeared on my dreams and came for MY SPIRITUAL RESCUE. He still often does that, about appearing on my dreams to show me the way where to go or what to do. There is an old proverb that says, "If those things did not kill you, they would make you stronger." Now, I volunteer my work for the ones in need worldwide. I am their silent voice with my prayers, my words out and messages which carry my inner lasting moral values. So I work for the Lord with a joyful heart.
He asked me to surrender all to His mighty care and lay all my burdens to His feet. Since then on, my life has changed for the better, and I feel that I have been enlightened by His mighty source of unconditional love, peace, compassion and mercy. I follow our dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for He shows me the way.
I acknowledge that He also saved my dear daughter and blessed her with the gift of her children and a wonderful family.
I have become a PRAYER WARRIOR.
I truly wish to live in a better world with justice for all. Our Lord have mercy!!
At this point in time, I am so much overweight due to my Health Issues...
