Thankful Thursday-Vacation

Irish of Grace Alone had that in her title and I smiled upon seeing it. Why? because we're going to have a 5 day vacation too next week! And I can't wait. I know I deserve it because I've been working double time lately. And I am so thankful God has arranged this trip for us.

We are going home to my husband's home town for the first time since we got married and you can tell I am excited to bits! But the husband is more excited than I am, he's so excited to show me where he grew up, where he spend his childhood. It is one hour flight from where we live. A very nice province, very historical, very rich in culture. I know I'll enjoy sight seeing, the beauty of the landscape and the beach. The old homes with rustic furniture and the food. I'll take a lot of pictures and will share it to you promise.

I am thankful that God will provide for this trip. We got the airfare months ago and it was on sale, for the two of us we only paid 318.00 or $8.00 equivalent which is so cheap. Thank God for seat sales!!!

God is so good! he knows when we need a break..I so love HIM!!

What are you thankful for this week? Share it with us and be blessed to!!

Dinner For A Cause

Me and my husband are attending this dinner tomorrow, the Pastor who spearheads this ministry is our Pastor so we are all there to support. proceeds for this will go to sick children of the PGH. If you're in Manila and you want to help, you might want to dine in and help. This will be held in Makati Parks and Garden tomorrow at 7:00 PM. There will also be a mini concert and my husband will be playing the base guitar for the first time. :)

The Time is Right for Roberto Coin Jewelry

If you have waited until the last moment to get that piece of jewelry to “wow” your family and friends and are telling yourself “it's time to get out of my comfy zone” and find something, Roberto Coin has all you need in fine jewelry. You won't have to look long aRoberto Coin jewelry before you find something that will knock you off of your feet. With pieces such as the 18kt white gold C-Profile Diamond Pendant, the 18kt yellow gold O Diamond Pendant, and the Centro Florentine Bracele-18kt Gold Bangle with Diamond and much more, the only hard part would be choose one magnificent piece over the other.

Unique Jewelry Pieces

The history behind Roberto Coin jewelry is quite amazing. He founded this company in 1977 and, in the beginning, was suppose to create prestigious jewelry for fine international brands. As it would turn out by the year 2000, the pieces in his collection allowed the company to rank 7th amongst all of the best-known jewelry companies world wide. These pieces have an interesting hidden gem fixture. In 1996, Roberto Coin started signing the pieces that were in the Appassionata Collections by affixing a ruby to each piece, and this signing or “secret gem” is a part of all the collections. This piece is wrapped around a legend and lore and is thought of as a secret gift of good wishes.

The Roberto Coin Collection

Collections includes the Appassionata, Barocco, Capri Plus, Centro Diamonds, Chic & Shine, Circle of Life, Classica, and the Elephant Skin. They have a variety of styles and colors of rings, earrings, watches, necklaces, and bracelets to choose from. Dazzle a young person with a graduation or birthday gift they will never forget. This will be the perfect anniversary gift or a conversation piece you can showcase at a special event.

Online Resources for Ministers

If you're someone who has decided that an online college is the best choice for your ministry education, then congratulations! You’ve made a good decision. There are plenty of resources available on the Internet that offer courses for those wishing to become an ordained minister. Hopefully, you’ve already done some research to choose the program that works best for you.

There are several advantages to taking virtual classes. Ministry students will enjoy the flexibility of online courses because they can fit their classes into community service, benevolence, or outreach ministries. They can also save money because they don’t have to commute to school every day to attend classes. It’s a win-win situation.

You’ll be happy to know that the qualifications for an online ministry education program are just as stringent as most traditional colleges and universities in your area. An added bonus is the fact that you can take virtual classes from any university in the country offering e-learning. For example, Liberty University has several online college courses available to people all across the U.S.

Although Internet-based colleges and universities have raised a few eyebrows from some people, the education provided though virtual colleges and learning centers is just as valuable as the education offered anywhere else in the country. If you wish to pursue a degree in ministry, do your best to find a fully accredited school. In the long run, you’ll be glad you did.

As a word of caution, you should avoid so-called fake diploma mills on the Internet. With some services, you pay a fee, and a company sends you a diploma. That’s about all you get. You don’t receive the benefit or reward that fully accredited institutions offer.

When you choose a distance-learning program, you're setting yourself up to learn as you focus on other aspects of your life.
