Fri-yay + Nate’s 2nd Special Number

Thank God it’s Friday! ♥ This week seems so long for me. Mother-in-law and I decided we’d sell snacks in the afternoon so, in the morning, I would go to the market to buy what we need. This is just a little experiment that we did – trial and error, of course, which Dane fully supported.

This little ‘business’ if we can call it that took was so challenging. Konti lang naman kasi para lang sa mga kapitbahay. We would cook banana cue, palamig or ginataang bilo-bilo. As of yet, we only have about 300-peso profit. Compared sa pagod, tingin ko lugi, lol! Pero it’s ok, it’s an experience for us at ang importante, nabalik ang capital. Maganda na rin may mapagkaabalahan kami. Today, I decided not to sell muna because first, Aunt Flo came to visit, lol! Second, I just wanted to rest for now. Then maybe, tomorrow, we’ll try to sell a few snacks again since it’s Saturday and a lot of people are going to the basketball court.

We also started selling ice and are planning to sell ice candy. You know, nothing to lose. Pakonti-konti habang naka-on naman din ang refrigerator, might as well maximize it, ‘di ba? Konting puhunan = konting returns. Low risk = low profit. Ang maganda lang, bawi na kami sa puhunan. hehe. Practice lang and who knows, maybe next time, God will let us manage a bigger business, hopefully!

So, I was browsing my Facebook albums and I saw the video I uploaded about Nate’s second special number in our church. I want to share it here too. During our practice, I told him to sing it for the Lord, especially since the song is about offering our lives to God. I think he did a really good job here. PS: Sorry about the screaming tots. πŸ™‚

Lord, I offer my life
Lord, I offer my life to You
Everything I’ve been through, use it for Your glory
Lord I offer my days to You
Lifting my praise to You as a pleasing sacrifice
Lord, I offer You my life

All that I am, all that I have
I lay them down before You, oh Lord
All my regrets, all my acclaims
The joy and the pain, I’m making them Yours

Lord, I offer my life to You
Everything I’ve been through, use it for Your glory
Lord I offer my days to You
Lifting my praise to You as a pleasing sacrifice
Lord, I offer You my life

Things in the past, things yet unseen
Wishes and dreams that are yet to come true
All of my hope, all of my plans
My heart and my hands are lifted to You

Lord, I offer my life to You
Everything I’ve been through, use it for Your glory
Lord I offer my days to You
Lifting my praise to You as a pleasing sacrifice
Lord, I offer You my life

  1. You have a good business venture thought it is a small time endeavor but it yet it gives you an earning. I appreciate again what you have done to your kid. His singing talent for sure would be developed as he sings for the Lord.

  2. This is one of my favorite song when I was still young, kanta pa yata namin ito nung graduation day nung grade 6. Good luck on your business, baka sa umpisa lang yung pagod pag nasanay na, okay na. Marami yumayaman sa small business. πŸ™‚

  3. ang galing naman! When I was still under the youth ministry in our church, that song use to be one of my favorites. very well written, and very nice.

  4. Didn't expect much on the biz, parang hindi ko kayang araw-arawin kaya dun nalang kami sa ice candy at ice, hindi kailangan tutukan at less effort. hehe.

  5. Both of you are so blessed and talented! I can only imagine the gratefulness you have inside your heart. Everything that we do, no matter how small, should be offered to God.

    Nako naexcite ako sa banana cue at ice candy na yan! Nagbenta ako dati ng ice candy, pero mga anak ko lang umubos hahaha so lugi na kaagad. I'm glad you enjoyed the selling experience.

  6. Uy, you should try ice candy. haha When I was on vacation, I tried selling ice candy because there was extra space in the fridge. My mom-in-law sold ice. It was a hit. I tried buko pandan ice candy. 5 pesos provincial rate? haha I heard in Manila it's 10 pesos. =) Dami kita. =) I would do the ice candy during weekends and that's for the whole week if possible. So one time preparation. or twice a week because it's done by the mid of the week. =)
    Lord, I Offer is my life's theme song. haha

  7. Haha, ganun din dito, palahingi din si Nate. Pinapabayad ko pag may pera sya. lol. I am enjoying it so far pero we stopped the banana cue, masyadong time consuming. OK na ung ice candy, di mahirap bantayan. hehe.

  8. It's true, 10 pesos na talaga sya! Kumikita kami paunti unti, hehe. Kaya masaya ako. Buko pandan and melon ang flavors namin for now. nakakatuwa lang. haha.

  9. Ang galing naman! This is one of my fave Church song, growing up in a Catholic Church halos kabisado ko rin lahat hehe.

    As for the business, ayos naman kasi mag-umpisa sa maliit. Who knows, someday you'll be one of the successful mompreneurs. Dati (hanggang ngayon) gusto ko talaga may pwesto sa palengke, mukhang mas mageexcel ako sa pagbebenta. hehe!

  10. As usual, Nate nailed it.. galing. As for the konting merienda, it's a nice experiment. Sabi nga nila, sa pakonti konti naguumpisa. Damihan nyo raw ang luto then deliver kayo sa amin. Dami kong anak. Hahaha. Dami kami oorderin.
