Looking for Love / Re: BEING A "MISTRESS"
« Last post by iloveshimmer on Today at 12:19:03 PM »
Hi sissies! My friend just posted this letter to facebook and I thought this might help our fellow sis regarding this mistress problem:


To the Adulterous Woman,

I am writing this to you.

Sometimes you question how you got here. You may even at times justify that you are not doing anything wrong nor did you intend to hurt anyone. You have every right to be happy, to be loved.

If you were to rewind a bit, you werent expecting this kind of life. You surely were looking for someone who can love you. You did everything to be seen by the man of your dreams. Pampering yourself with your fine hairstyle, your lotion toned legs, the nail colors, sweet perfume and the fancy dress up. Many women envy your beauty. But there was still something missing. He was still missing.

Then someone took noticed. The flirty looks, the attention, and the fun conversation you are holding on to his bait. The thrill of that next text message and the oh so looking forward secret date. Your senses say there is something special here. This excited you walking on the edge and putting your heart out there.

You believed every word he said. His charms and his adventurous spirit snared you. He expressed he had feelings for you. He also openly shared with you that he is a married man. He is unfortunately unhappy being married and then he met you. He felt he was a new man! You sympathized with his situation. How could a man like this be so unhappy? Surely, I could fill in those needs you tell yourself. He took care of you when you were together and that was more than enough for you. So you took the next step and decided to pursue this kind of relationship.

But you did not think out all the details in full perspective. The attention, the intimacy was all you dreamed of except that He will NEVER be yours. As you are spending a romantic time together somewhere, a family is being wrecked. A wife is crying out for love and devotion from her husband simply because you are in the way. Their children are slowly being shattered by a home that has an uninvolved / distracted father because you draw him away from them. But lets flip the coin and look at your situation. How do you feel when he cannot introduce you properly to the people that know him? How do you feel when you have to lie all the time about your relationship or how you have to pretend there is nothing going on? After that short sweet time together, how empty do you feel to come home without him? How long can you wait to see him again? He has informed you, there will be family outings and engagements that simply you cannot be invited. Im sure you have realized that you have become in the least of his priorities. This alone must tire you down. Then lets look at this man you have fallen in love with. Is this the man you really dream of? If you were to lets say, marry him, would the thought scare you that he can fall out of love with you and find someone else like he did with his wife? Where is your peace of mind? What kind of integrity does he display when he is with you, with his family, with others? Can you live with all the lies is honesty in a relationship important to you?

Im sorry to make you feel uncomfortable. The truth has a way to wake people up and sugar coating it wont help you. The inevitable happened. The secret has been exposed:

 

 Teacher, they said to Jesus, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?

6They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. 7They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone! Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.

9When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. 10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, Where are your accusers? Didnt even one of them condemn you?

11 No, Lord, she said.

And Jesus said, Neither do I. Go and sin no more. John 8:4-11

 

I want you to know that you dont have to stay in this situation. For so long you had your eyes focused on the wrong things. In fact, you may have not noticed but there is someone who is crazy about you. He has never stopped pursuing you even if you have not paid attention. He knows your past and even present situation. Despite of everything you have done, not even for a second, has he lost interest in you. He never judged you. He has the highest regard for you. He respects you and adores everything about you. He is calling you to surrender a counterfeit life for the real thing. He is offering you an everlasting love. His name is Jesus. He wants to protect you. He wants to redeem you and is completely willing to pay the price for your sin.

But it takes a real woman to take a leap of faith. You do not have to be afraid. You just need to trust in Him. He wants only the best for you. But you must let go first before you can receive this peace and joy beyond understanding. So Go. Walk. Dont look back sin no more.

Were waiting for you on the other side of the fence. You can do it.

Sincerely,

 

Once the Adulterous Woman now a Woman of Christ

Engagements & Weddings / Re: OTD Wedding Coordinator (Part 3)
« Last post by Chili1113 on Today at 12:17:56 PM »
Hi mga sis. Help me naman. Plan kasi namin before is wag na kumuha ng OTD coord, will get na lang out relatives/friends tapos mag assign ng tasks sa knila. E parang hassle and ayaw namin macompromise yung wedding kaya we've decided to get my officemate na lang na rumaraket ng coord. Tapos I asked her if she can bring two more para 3 sila and we'll pay na lang the additional. So okay na dapat. Lately ko lang narealize na parang kulang ang 3 coords and since friends2 kami ni officemate,takot akong baka dahil walang contract at ang informal ng lahat ng discussion, maraming mamiss na details. If nag add pa ko ng additional coords from her team, mahal na aabutin. Now I am planning to get 7ten5 events. Problem ko lag is paano ko sasabihin sa officemate ko etong plan. I know it's my fault talaga pero wala pa din naman kaming concrete plan, etc. Paano kaya ang tamang approach? Hmmm

Nako sis baka pas mapamahal ka pa by getting your officemate and hiring additional people. Plus she's not really a coordinator so hindi sulit babayarin mo sa kanya. Kasi usually kasama sa fee ng coordinator ang mag suggest ng tried and tested suppliers, to give budget forms/checklists, plus to give you advice on etiquette etc.

Nowadays madami coordinator na sobrang mura meron mga 15k and mga 5 in a team na yon. not all are good and a lot are amateurs na ruma-racket din lang. But I am sure you can find an inexpensive corrdinator na may experience na din.

I have nothing against yung mga ruma-racket lang. But iba kasi yung may biglang nag volunteer lanf na siya yung coordinator mo tapos wala naman siya alam na suppliers man lang, or kung pano yung proper lineup ng entourage sa church etc etc OR

Tapos isipin mo nalang madaming work behind-the-scenes na ginagawa ng coordinating team na walang alam yung extra na kukunin ng office mate mo. FOr example... marunong ba yung extra na kukunin niya na magsupervise ng lights and sound check during set-up?? Alam ba nila kung kelan yung proper scheduling kung kailan papakainin yung mga suppliers mo at kund sino uunahin pakainin like the emcee??

Heheh If I were you sis, Id tell my officemates na ---sorry talaga but we will be getting a professional OTD coordinator. Just say that it wasnt your choice and that the family of your husband is insisting on someone they know... and that it will be a gift for you and you wont pay for it. Your officemate will understand because sino naman talaga mag say NO to a free coordinator na sponsored by a family member. This may be a white lie. But then I think this is better ratherthan hurting the feelings of your office mate.

I bought a couple of dresses from ModCloth din, years ago. Hopefully the quality improved because one of the dresses I got parang overpriced Forever21. But I still browse the site and thinking of buying a bunch of things (mostly home stuff).

Domestic Help / Re: CCTV CAMERA
« Last post by twelve5 on Today at 12:13:05 PM »
^ i had ours installed in february. so far so good, but too early to tell pa.

outdoor and indoor cams sa amin, ccd not cmos. installation was done by a friend of mine. although cheaper to have it done by qube technicians, im more comfy working with someone i know.

lightning daw kalaban ng cctv cams. so you really need a voltage regulator (with power on delay na rin).

Work Woes / Re: What keeps you motivated at work?
« Last post by artegirl on Today at 12:05:55 PM »
 - I love what I do
 - I genuinely enjoy the company of people I work with
 - years of discipline gets  me through the "tamad" days.  when I was living with my parents pa, bawal mag sick leave kung hindi naman sobrang may sakit talaga!
 - I always tell myself "work as if you don't need the money".
