Made Me Glad

I keep singing this song over and over for some days now. Made Me Glad by Hillsong. I thought I'd paste this here instead of having to look for it over and over again via YouTube. :-)

I will bless the Lord forever
I will trust Him at all times
He has delivered me from all fear
He has set my feet upon a rock
I will not be moved
And I'll say of the Lord

You are my shield, my strength
My portion, deliverer
My shelter, strong tower
My very present help in time of need

Whom have I in heaven but You
There's none I desire beside You
You have made me glad
And I'll say of the Lord

You are my shield, my strength
My portion, deliverer
My shelter, strong tower
My very present help in time of need

Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Book Cover

I am so hooked! After having finished Stephenie Meyer's book, Twilight, in no time. I am now almost done with the second book, New Moon. I just can't stop. Now, during the times that I get up from my bed resting (doc's order), I just go around browsing reading some more from the author's website.

A very interesting trivia on Twilight's book cover.

The apple on the cover of Twilight represents "forbidden fruit." I used the
scripture from Genesis (located just after the table of contents) because I
loved the phrase "the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil." Isn't this
exactly what Bella ends up with? A working knowledge of what good is, and what
evil is. The nice thing about the apple is it has so many symbolic roots. You've
got the apple in Snow White, one bite and you're frozen forever in a state of
not-quite-death... Then you have Paris and the golden apple in Greek
mythology—look how much trouble that started. Apples are quite the versatile
fruit. In the end, I love the beautiful simplicity of the picture. To me it
says: choice.

The Worm and Open Sports

During the 90’s my husband loved the team Chicago Bulls. Among the players he loved that contributed to the great reign of the Bulls, aside from Michael Jordan of course, is Dennis “The Worm” rodman. He was great at offensive and defensive rebounding and added extra factor to the Bulls defensively. His attitude, fashion and hair style on and off court made him stand out and become known as the bad boy of basketball.

Now, with all these experience, popularity and credentials, an online sports destination known as has signed “The Worm” a.k.a. “Dennis the Menace”. Now, was started by Mike Levy, a former CEO of CBS The Press Release, which can be read at, mentioned how great the partnership is because of Dennis Rodman’s expertise and the kind of entertainment he can provide through “self-written blog entries, video logs and participation in interviews with various sports personalities on and off-line.” I personally think that this will be something to look forward to.

How about you? What can you say about this partnership? Do you think this will be a great combination? Do you think that Rodman will create the desired effect among sports fans with his expertise and experience?


Done with the First Book!

Can you actually call it bedrest when all I do in bed is read an e-book from my mobile? I finished the first book of Stephenie Meyer's Series on Twilight in no time. I literally cannot put my mobile down. I have already started the second book -- New Moon! And I cannot wait until Edward and Bella reunite again! :-)
Okay now, let me go back to resting in bed.

Engage With Grace

In Alexandra Drane's words, we need to "start talking. Engage With Grace: The One Slide Project was designed with one simple goal: to help get the conversation about end of life experience started. The idea is simple: Create a tool to help get people talking. One Slide, with just five questions on it. Five questions designed to help get us talking with each other, with our loved ones, about our preferences."
