Ever Been This Tired?

My sister just sent me an email forwarded to her by a friend. Thought I'd share the pictures here! Aren't they just so adorable & really tired?

The Key to Real Rest:
Jesus said: "Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matthew 11:28-29)

ei,

yeah, times like these, i let go of every worry, relax and as they say "rest in the Lord."

Atinna said...

ganyan din ako minsan ah, nakakatulog ako habang kumakain o kaya habang nagta-type sa computer.

scanns said...

cacof, that's because you know Him, Who is the Key to real rest! Hope more people would go straight to Jesus, the only One Who gives the peace that transcends all understanding! :)

scanns said...

ei atinna, parati ka ba ganyan matulog? nakakatulog ka rin ba sa sapatos, sa cabinet, sa pagkain, at sa metal "whatever", like those babies & kittens? di naman siguro?! sana nga hindi! hehe... :)

cacofonix said...

ako totoo yan, nakakatulog ako sa harap ng bowl ng pansit with chopsticks dangling in my hand...seriously! eh kung sa harap nga ni Prof. Linguistics nagawa natin, sa harap pa kaya ng pansit?

scanns said...

oi cacofay, nakakatulog ka nga sa harap ng bowl ng pansit! si atinnafa habang kumakain! at tayong dalawa sa klase nasa silya in front of the office desk of Prof. Linguistics (di ba atinnafa?)! pero di naman siguro tayo nakakatulog sa ibabaw ng pagkain, sa ibabaw ng sapatos, sa loob ng cabinet, at nakasingit sa metal! i hope not! hehe... ;)

annabanana said...

Hi Tita Scanns! Hi ladies!! *waving to tita cacof, tita atinnadarna and tita annamatilda* ^_^

tita daday, that is so true, that Only He and He alone could give us rest...'lam mo, sa Pilipinas nung nde pa ako christian, I would listen to Basil's song para gumaan pakiramdam ko, yun ang constant reminder ko to completely trust God and not worry

cute naman ng mga nasa pictures...salamat sa mga dalaw mo ha...ingat lagi and God Bless

scanns said...

tita thesserie, glad to see you here! Amen, only Jesus can give "real" rest! Alam mo, that song is also one of my favorite songs, nakaka-bless kasi! Most likely God used that song (long before) to plant seeds in your heart! Cute din pictures ni Charlie mo sa blog! See you soon! Take care & God bless!

thess said...

scanns said...

Ok lang, naiintindihan ko pa naman balitaktakan nila if there will be an impeachment case vs GMA or not! GOD bless us all!!! We really need to pray for our country!!!

ei badaday,

super excited here, i'll be going to my first ever class in fashion design course tonight..yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee......kala ko di ako makakahabol, pero I made it!

my pastor friend called me last night asking me to be trained in church teaching/leadership in her church (told her ahhh, maybe not this time, i have to clear my soul first he he..but, i'll check out another church involved in overseas missions!). she kept on laughing coz i told her that i've been busy checking out different philosophies/religion for the past months, even going to one sciento... center last week (yeah, i've been actually bz he he), just to affirm the ultimate superiority of Christianity. she's good and we had an interesting discussion on the different philosophies; even talked much about the resolute stand of John MacArthur on the bible in his Larry King Live appearances. told her, i realized it's about time i leave my reflective/mysticism coccoon and go back to serving/what kept me busy (before i went on a 4 year hiatus) before -singing, even adventuring with my multi-cultural missionary friends on ships.......sigh, don't you miss those days? sana kasama kita drooling on the Logos ship in Vancouver before, have you ever been to one dyan sa Pinas.

Check your mail for more details.

annabanana said...

hello badaday!
hmm, oo wala na ako dun sa kindergarten. pinasara ko na yun, kasi bad yung may-ari! ang dami niyang nilokong mga teachers at pati parents! tsaka hirap magturo sa kindergarten...haaay buhay! i now work at a community center, i still teach kids, pero this time mga kids na mahihirap...as in walang pera ang mga parents to send them to school. im loving every minute! kahit na kakarampot ang sweldo, enjoy pa rin ako! ;d

annabanana said...

i miss tita cacof! hikbi!

scanns said...

Hi jinglebell, good you're pursuing that design course, keep it up! Glad your pastor friend encouraged you! It'd do you good to keep in touch w/her & consider training & service (as before) when you're ready (I hope soon)! :) I do miss those (our) days!

I've heard about the Logos ship, sana nga kasama ako nun! But I've been to the Doulos ship maybe twice, very inspiring! Other times, I also met Filipinos who were part of Doulos! So are you done w/your "research"? BTW, what did John MacArthur say on Larry King Live? God bless!

scanns said...

Hi annabanana-cake, welcome back! Pano mo pinasara yung kindergarten? Dapat lang, kung bad ang may-ari, pano nya niloko teachers & parents? Can't imagine teaching kinder, mahirap nga! Wow, how noble of you to teach those kids, marami ba kids na mahihirap dyan? I'm happy you love it, what subject do you teach? How old are your students? BTW, wag ka na lungkot, makakausap mo din si cacof, busy lang yun! God bless you & your teaching job! :)

annabanana said...

tita badaday!
ako ulit...uhm, yung kindergarten, sinumbong ko sa labor office. tapos it turned out, wala pala silang lisensiya to operate as a kindergarten. pwede lang silang english after school for kids, pero hindi kindergarten. so yung mga graduates namin eh hindi mapapayagang pumasok sa grade one without taking a special test at the expense of the parents. ayun, naisara sila..ilang beses na silang na report eh, ako lang yung huli, parang inipon yung cases para solid ang evidence. ngayon naman i teach kids from 7- 13 years old...hehehe konti lang sila kasi konti lang ang mahihirap sa seoul...ako lang yata! hahahaha! :D

Jayred said...

Hi Scanns! Ok yung mga pics no? Sarap naman ng tulog nila...hope ganyan din tulog ko mamaya. :-)

Ehem, kelan ang ating contribution sa Christian Cafe blog (formerly called W.W.C.D.)?

God bless! (Thanks for visiting Fish & Loaves. May nag-comment sa comment mo. Please check it out na lang, thanks.)

jinglebell said...

ei badaday,

oo nga eh, will surely get there when my heart is ready, hopefully soon. lam mo this afternoon, i went shopping for my first ever sewing project. beads, patches and glittery stuff for blue jeans. i made my first ever design and it's looking great. nakakarelax and distress yung excitement and joy you feel for creating something unique; i couldn't even put the thing down 'til i felt the need to do my net routine..he he he...

nagsusuot ka ba ng avant-garde stuff? medyo bohemian kse ang style ko eh, yaan mo pag nakarami, it will be one of my pasalubongs for you when i come home.

bananing, miss you too. i go to your blog and read, looks like tildy had a great party!

scanns said...

annabanana-bread, thanks for replying coz na-curious ako! How courageous & vigilant of you to seek justice for teachers like you, the parents & kids! I'd say you were God's instrument for justice! Coz God is both merciful & just! :) As I said, how noble of you to teach those kids! You said you love your work, I'd say it's because your motivation is to help! May your tribe increase! Again, God bless you, your family & your teaching job! :)

scanns said...

Hi Jayred, kumusta ka na? And you liked the pics too! Don't worry, I'm sure you have the Key to real rest! :) Can you email me any suggestions for an entry there? Since I've been busy, I have to make time to write one. Glad you're back to blogging again! I already saw the comment & replied to it. Pls check it out too, thanks. God bless!

scanns said...

ei jinglebell, I'm sure we'll all be ready to do so in God's time! Coz we know that if we go by the Word, we'll be on the right path! And keep on honing God's gifts (i.e., abilities), w/c He has given us for a purpose! Aba, excited na akong makita yang creations mo! Kahit anong style, basta bagay, thanks in advance! :) God bless!

jinglebell said...

ei badaday,

oo naman re: giftings, lapit na wag ka alala. as for the pants, yaan mo, eto nga at giliw na giliw ako sa paggawa...susunod kong proyekto eh mga bags siguro.

jinglebell said...

great verse...

2 Chronicles 7
13 "If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

jinglebell said...

badaday,

pakanta ha? don't accuse me of invasion of blog comment space....hmp.

nung isang araw pa ako paulit-ulit ng kantang to....kantahin mo rin daw...

Blessed Assurance

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above,

Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,

Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

Ok, have a nice weekend!
