A MUST SEE TAP DANCE DUEL BY US SEMINARIANS!! - "By the grace of God, it is the glory of God in them and in us"

"By God's grace, it is the glory of God in them and in us, sharing this gives great joy and peace in our hearts."

As shared on by facebook page and timeline as comments on YahooNews post of Trisha Thomas:
"Awesome tap dancing talents in two priests dueling for fun and entertainment.
It is God given talents here being shared in the celebration of life.
Amazing tap dancing expertise shared on YouTube has made these priests, Rev. David Rider and Rev. John Gibson, social media stars.
As in 1 Corinthians 10:31(source:,NIV), "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it for the glory of God."
And in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18(source:,NIV), "Be joyful always, pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
It is by the power of the Holy Spirit that we are made to understand God's words with no malice in our hearts and minds, but with pureness and holiness that we may see God's fullness in us as we share in His blessings and in His goodness for "with God all things are possible," as in Matthew 19:26, and sharing our talents, our gifts and blessings in the love of others, yes, including those times we make people happy and be entertained because it makes life complete with joy and much peace in God's affirmation of His loving presence in us in this life, these are all in acknowledgement of His great and awesome love for us all, and that in all these, God may be glorified in Christ Jesus as we may abide in the gospel of truth, of love and of mercy in the unity and in peace of our faith, living by God's grace in the mighty name of our Lord, our Master, and our Savior, Jesus Christ, in union with the Almighty Father and the Holy Spirit, all in One God, forever and ever, Amen."
It is so beautiful to understand how God reveals in our spirit the truth in His words of love and peace as we may continue to abide by His greatest commandment as shared by Jesus for us all to believe, follow and become a living witness of, as in Luke 10:27(source:,NIV) when Jesus was asked by a scholar of the law to test him on the question what one "must do to inherit the kingdom of God:"
"He answered, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
Did the priests satisfy this summed up 'greatest commandment of God?'  Absolutely, therefore, no one should fear in 'love,' where "perfect love drives out fear," where fear is 'evil' in itself who whispers in our ears and in our minds all the negativity that one may think of to veer us away from the truth about the gospel of Christ...
As in 1 John 4:18(source:,HIV):  
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love."
Watching on the 'singing nun' sensation, Sister Cristina, on you tube, in Italy's version of "Voice." makes one of faith cry with joy in one's heart as one may feel God's truth as we choose to journey with God in Christ in this trial filled and pressure filled life, where with The Lord, we have nothing to fear, rather, rejoice and be glad in Him for He makes our life complete. 
Blessings to all that more may see the greater meaning of, 'in us is the Temple of the Holy Spirit, which we must respect and honor, and further guided by the Holy Spirit, from whom all good things come, in the humility of our hearts and souls to God, may we see and share in the light of truth in Christ.

Sister Cristina, a nun, wows the audience and the judges in Italian version of "The Voice"

Sister Cristina, an Italian nun, wows the audience and the judges.

God is good.  He blesses us with great talents that fill our hearts with joy and with love as we journey this life with Him.

This time, it is Sister Cristina, who amazes everybody with her beautiful voice, singing "No One," popularized by Alicia Keys.

The beautiful lyrics of the song, perhaps, encouraged Sister Cristina to memorize, practice and perform this song for Jesus, "No One,"  where nuns are known to be married to Jesus, forever (lyrics source:

                                       "No One"

I just want you close
Where you can stay forever
You can be sure
That it will only get better

You and me together
Through the days and nights
I don't worry 'cause
Everything's going to be alright
People keep talking they can say what they like
But all I know is everything's going to be alright

No one, no one, no one
Can get in the way of what I'm feeling
No one, no one, no one
Can get in the way of what I feel for you, you, you
Can get in the way of what I feel for you

When the rain is pouring down
And my heart is hurting
You will always be around
This I know for certain

You and me together
Through the days and nights
I don't worry 'cause
Everything's going to be alright
People keep talking they can say what they like
But all I know is everything's going to be alright

No one, no one, no one
Can get in the way of what I'm feeling
No one, no one, no one
Can get in the way of what I feel for you, you, you
Can get in the way of what I feel

I know some people search the world
To find something like what we have
I know people will try, try to divide, something so real
So till the end of time I'm telling you there ain't no one

No one, no one
Can get in the way of what I'm feeling
No one, no one, no one
Can get in the way of what I feel for you

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh [x2]

And how beautiful to entertain anyone with this song, with Jesus in our hearts, we see hope in God's everlasting love and mercy, if only we believe and remain in His light ... and see how being with Him and in Him, "everything will be alright." 

In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-17, we are exhorted to rejoice and be thankful in all circumstances the celebration of life, God's gift to man. and as we become prayerful, "Be joyful always, pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

And in Psalm 37:2-4 (source: "Do not be provoked by evildoers;
do not envy those who do wrong.a
Like grass they wither quickly;
like green plants they wilt away.b
Trust in the LORD and do good
that you may dwell in the land* and live secure.c
Find your delight in the LORD
who will give you your heart’s desire.d"

[See more of Sister Cristina's songs shared on this link as she finished 'Numero Uno' as the ultimate champion, truly glorifying God in her winning 'The Voice of Italy 2014' in a landslide victory
God bless Sister Cristina as she glorifies the Lord sharing her God given talents to everyone that 'ye' may all know, that all good things come from Him.

In everything, may "God's kingdom come; God's will be done, on earth as in heaven," from The Lord's Prayer, the way to pray to God our heavenly Father, as Jesus taught us, we being all His disciples as we may be enlightened and guided to spread His truth in the gospel.

Glory be to God forever and ever. Amen.

Using Money and Talent for the Love of God and Love of Others

"In whatever we do let the 'Light of the World' shine as we gain strength in Him, in Jesus, in the guidance of the Holy Spirit, every single day of our life."

"Money is the root of all evil," so the cliche goes, and in 1 Timothy 6:10 Saint Paul makes it so profound.

What about 'love of money,' or 'passion for money,' but what is the best way to treat money in this temporal life?

Beware, God tells us to avoid passion for money, and to say, "I love money," is an error in 'true faith.'

We are no less than pagans to love money more than God, or be guilty of 'idolatry,' when we give more credence to Mammon, the false god, or the devil, to rule our lives in sins of pride, our 'ego' getting the upper hand leading us to being selfish, when God wants us to uplift the poor and the astray by spreading what is true in the gospel and what is true in the 'word.'

1 John 2;15 gives more emphasis to Christ's message, in the guidance of the Holy Spirit all should know, "Do not love the world," or we may stay confused of loving the false god than our Creator and our Savior, He who created us and He, our loving Messiah, who saved us from sin.

If we need to give back, to Him who has showed great love to us and our family, as one Spirit with our Creator, He as our Divine Provider, Divine Mercy, Divine Healer, Good Shepherd, Divine Counselor, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, Jesus remains our Lord and Master as 'the truth in this life,' the 'resurrection and the life,' our 'All in All,' and there is no other.

If you believe that we were all created by God, our life, and all things or every single thing in this world come from Him, where in Jesus, "through Him all things were made, without Him, nothing was made that was ever made," as in John 1:3.

Rule, all power and authority in this life, in this world and in the whole universe belongs to Him, as the Author of life, He being the fullness of the Deity in bodily form, as in Colossians 2:9.

And what does Jesus say in the 'Parable of the Talents?'

Does he not encourage us to to use our talents and our blessings the right way and not just keep them for ourselves while we may let time to pass by, or let precious opportunity pass, without any profit or gain?

Get into this very enlightening video and learn more from "Sean Hyman - The Biblical Money Code," how biblical truths have guided him to financial success as against financial stress from 'love of money' and greed.

Wake up 'O wonderful creation of God, we are all here to prosper truth and love for Him and for the love of others.

We are here to prosper and hone our talents and skills for the love of Him, our family, our country or nation and of others, not to hide them and leave them buried.

What if somebody takes all things material away, when we lose them, will these not stress us up and our health compromised?

Yes, if we have 'loved money and all things passing' as more important to us in our given lifetime, it is our 'pride,' that may take its toll on us, on our health and well being.

This is when we have loved the false god in Mammon.

'Stress,' being the number one cause of fatal and chronic illnesses, comes to us and may keep us off focus of what is true in our life,  we forget that passing things are 'imperfect,' they change as time flies, is this not like 'chasing the wind,' as in the book of Ecclesiastes (Old Testament).

Anything that passes away with the wind, passes away in time and space, or perishes under the sun, are we not just 'following our own shadow?'

Anything that is passing remains imperfect, they should not rule us and our emotions, we remain lost and may go crazy thinking about them, worst, we sin against our neighbor when we cannot control our temper, the tempter gets one over us.

Is forthcoming hatred necessary with we lose things passing?

No way, but many do worry.

If Jesus said, "Do not worry," then, we should see His everlasting 'word' as holy and true, alive, active and living forever when 'heaven and earth' may pass away, as in Matthew 24:35.

Does is make sense not to worry, for the more we worry, the more we may sin as we get tempted to do what is not right and improper, things that we hope should not have happened.

When we sin, its darkness that binds us, not the light that should rule our very being.

So true, while our talents need to be honed, our skills improved, it remains our oneness with God, as we care to humble ourselves before Him, to better know what truth there is in keeping ourselves attuned to His 'word,' and in our obedience of His commandments, keep us in complete control of ourselves and our emotions, to free us from slavery to sin.

Simply, it is when we are willing to grow in spirit, it keeps us at peace with ourselves, where true happiness and joy in our hearts remain, in our heart of love, this is where our spirit lives, in our hearts of love, where our body remains the sacred Temple of the Holy Spirit.

Loving and forgiving others in their faults and sinfulness, comes our own recognition of our own imperfection, we being imperfect, the more we may see our perfection in Him who created us and in Him who saved us from sin,

In the unity of Christ's body and blood in us, as we partake of the Holy Eucharist, our cleansing in body - in heart, soul and mind - comes our perfection, for in Him comes holiness and righteousness, that we too may strive to keep us holy and righteous as God is holy and righteous.

As we lose more in stress our health may end up in disaster, are we not giving more problems to ourselves because time cost so much in this life and God gave us this life and time to make good use for the love of Him and for the love of others, not to just sit back and relax on our couch waiting until our master gets back thinking that we are just doing what is right by giving back to Him in His light, to His 'universal church' leading us to the use of our talents He bestowed on us what what He gave us to use, no more no less.

But, is this truth of creativity in our talents real?

When we fail to think and plan, we plan to fail.  There is nothing good that comes out of time and talent squandered by not doing anything.

Our ways of thinking should be attuned to what the Holy Spirit in us tells us in our enlightened soul, as we open our hearts to Him, here to guide us to His light, to His mighty 'word,' from where miracles of life in our 'true faith' come as we journey with Him in the love of others, uplifting our family, the poor, the sick and the astray to His truth.

God through Christ Jesus, our true Lord and Master, wants us to be productive and to avoid sloth.

Laziness is sin in our wickedness and selfishness, So, what are we waiting for, make and find time, work for our true purpose in this life.

Our own creativity should help as we pray to possess His light, not to be ruled by money, not to be greedy in all things passing and imperfect, and not follow those who think can give us easy money in the corruption of our souls, or not to even do anything in the comforts of our homes.

Take away our fears, our insecurity and anxieties, all these hamper our growth in our spirit.  These are sinful elements of inactivity as passive and meaningless ways to our pride and malice in our hearts.

It is just unthinkable why we keep on believing what is passive and does not prosper the love of God and the love of family, the sick and the poor.  In His light, living by His 'word' comes our healing in many ways, away from darkness in our souls where evil may collect from us in illnesses in our inactivity, selfishness or living in lust of our eyes and minds.

Suffice to live happily with our family and children, as we prosper their needs to strive to be guided to holiness and righteousness in Christ, in the love and kindness in their hearts, they may see with me what true happiness means, with the Good Shepherd in our hearts of love, we are complete in Christ's fullness as we abide and obey His words and commands.

It remains in our spirit, our spirit of love and truth that allows us to go beyond what we think we cannot do.

Go beyond our doubts, by living in our faith, by God's grace, His light guiding us to live forever, how can we go wrong when we love in truth, no selfishness, no lust or greed, but truthfulness in the honesty of our being, we having been made and created as a 'new creation,' in 'the image and likeness of God.'

It is high time to go beyond what our mind tells us, to be 'wicked and untrue' in the wrong use of money, rather, be truthful and be honest to ourselves, truth about 'the breaking of the bread,' in our 'true faith' we live forever with The Lord.

Come to 'His banquet of plenty,' and be merry living in His light where true peace and joy comes in bountiful fruits, a great harvest coming our way as we share in Christ's banquet, His light to set us free.

By 'giving and sharing in our talents,' duplication comes multiplication, to multiply 'the bread of life,' in 'the breaking of the bread,' as we start to love one another and bear with one another in our imperfections, remaining in Him comes our 'very perfection' in His promise of eternal life, where in true baptism among the consecrated, we have died and have been buried with him, as in Romans 6:3-4.

Reading Romans Chapter 6 would give us its true meaning, having been baptized in the name of The Father, The Son and of The Holy Spirit, where, by the grace of God comes our true faith, blessed in the Spirit of God, living water in baptism, water from the river of life flowing through our veins through the blood of Christ.

All three elements:  Spirit of God, water and blood comes in 'one accord' in our faith, as in 1 John 5:8, reading the whole chapter in 1 John 5, gives us a more comprehensive view of the meaning of living in the victory of our faith, as victors in Christ, we conquer the world and all its evil in the practice of our faith.

With the many promises of the 'word,' comes the promise of eternal life, our true mission in this life is to spread His truth in the gospel, not the lies of the flesh, but His everlasting truth leading us to eternity and infinity by our faith.

Our life can be short or long, but comes out short anyways as compared to eternity.

What is God telling us, in 'divine logic' we come to know the truth in this life, the truth in the gospel of Christ, that we need to live this life with flying colors, living in the glory of our faith, living in the glory of God, for when we die, nothing material we may obtain,

But as we were born naked, we came in clean, for Christ has redeemed the world by His death and resurrection.  Being baptized in truth comes next in our parents or guardians love for us.

If is our golden opportunity in our love for the gift of life from heaven above, to share the love in our hearts, giving your child the gift of God's heavenly Kingdom in your child's heart of love.

In true baptism, God's grace in your child's soul and in your very soul, you may feel God's Kingdom in your spirit of love.

When we die, how can we come out clean?

The covenant of God is the blood of Christ as the promise.

The blood of The Lamb of God, heretofore, to cleanse and light the world as we may partake of His body and blood in the Holy Eucharist, comes our cleansing and perfection as we remain in Him.

To live in the lighted path comes the 'true vine' of 'true faith,'

We are given gifts by God in the children that we may have and as stewards of truth, other gifts may follow, where in living our lives with our family and neighbors, His light we may share in the power of His 'word,' in this beautiful world, brought to us with peace and order in our hearts, may we live in the peace and order of our souls guided by the Holy Spirit as the greater power in us, where Jesus is, He being greater than him (devil/alien) who may try to grab our peace and freedom in his many entrapment to corrupt our faith in meaningless and imperfect things.

Possess His light by your greater faith, in the blood of The Lamb be purified as you repent of all your sinfulness, and be one with Him in the perseverance of your faith, against the corruption of worldly things.

Share this freedom with others, and be blessed by God with your household and family.

In His light comes truth that sets free.

Wider horizons we may see as we dream with Him in our love for others.

Carrying our own cross comes the test of our faith, in His love and light, may we always come out as victors, but as we may fail, His everlasting hope lies in His everlasting love and mercy from among us faithful to Him.

Life is a sacrifice in the cross we carry.

Persecutions may come in the many events of our life, but, stay firm, our faith will lead us to greater peace and joy in our hearts as we have humbled ourselves to Him.

Again, He remains our true Lord and Master in this life,

Trusting in Him as we remain in Him, in His light and flock, comes the promise of eternal life.

The more we get away from meaningless things that tie our hands from being productive in His ways, the more we see His light that in Him and with Him, we need to spread the light of truth in the gospel.

It is evil that laughs at us in our inaction through our worldliness, it is him who deceives us with many broken promises in the many lies of the flesh.

In the light of truth comes our spirit that connects to God in His Spirit of love and mercy, binding us to free us from sin and darkness,

From our cocoon of darkness, may we see His ever shining light of hope and love, freeing us from our fear of death and darkness, our blindness gone from our pride.

Our very 'ego' having built a wall of selfishness from inside of us, may never be seen with His guiding light in our midst and within our being.'

Sharing His power from within us, comes God's heavenly Kingdom among us, the faithful, living with us and in us forever in our hearts of love.

With Him, are we not ever happy making a difference sharing the Kingdom of God in our hearts of love and peace with others?

May God bless us all as we KJOH,

Best Dancer in the World, Haspop, Hits 7M

It is just amazing how this dancer has awed the judges and the audience in 'Americas Got Talent.'

It's one for the books.  Haspop makes it as simply the BEST dancer.

What do you say?

He shares with the crowd how he has to leave his family back home in France to make a name for himself in America with that hope of someday bringing his family with him.

Great touching story.

He performed too with Cirque du Soleil in Montreal before 2010 and later in Las Vegas where he became the lead dance star of 'Love,' as The Walrus, according to Wikipedia.

'Everything happens for a reason.'  It was his chance to live in America with his family, as it has been God's will to grant him his pop dancing talent infusing comedy and fun, and would you believe, he is of French Moroccan Muslim descent where his family and religion frown over his kind of dancing.

Oh, so were people amazed, and that includes me, while he was unfazed and continued doing what he did best.

Blessings to you and your family Haspop (Hassan being his real name).

Foot Pinning Trick by Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Manny Pacquiao - "Foul?"

Reading on our video link from Granville Ampong of, you will see people dismayed, irked and in disbelief by the foot stopping trick utilized by Juan Manuel Marquez against the unassuming Manny Pacquiao.

[Read and view interesting video post:  "Foot Stopper Trick by Juan Manuel Marquez" - from]

Here's what I commented:
"Not so many people noticed this foot pinning strategy of Marquez which is "foul," as it is unfair and unsportsmanlike. Not even Roach, Manny or Buboy and Alex noticed this. No wonder, JMM caused Manny off his tempo and balance, plus cramps that bothered him in the fight. JMM thought that this was UFC not boxing, where only hands and fists are to be used but not feet to intentionally step on to handicap the opponent. Is there no malice here?"

The referee did not notice this as he was too engrossed focusing his eyes on the upper torso of both fighters, just like anybody else.  

Nobody thought of this cheat, not even honest Mexicans will tolerate this unsportsmanlike behavior, just to win a fight with boxing's best Pound for Pound Boxer.

No wonder JMM successfully avoided a lethal blow that could have ended the fight early on.  

If this is tolerated in boxing, we may as well call it "foot trapping and boxing," a new kind of sport that could very well be more popular that Thai kick boxing.

Despite this dirty trick, nevertheless, Manny Pacquiao delivered the more telling blows to Juan Manuel Marquez as  seen through the latter's puffy face.

Clearly, Manny has stronger punches than Juan Manuel Marquez, but, poor JMM, why did he have to apply this trick just to increase his chances against the more powerful "Pacman," not realizing how he would have to pay dearly in terms of ridicule, dishonor and this may spell a clear blemish to his name and to his team.  

He may have checked the onslaught of the "Pacman" with his effective counter punches, but now that Manny realizes how he can better deal with his weaker punches, he and Roach may see it more appropriate to study on more effective fleeting combinations to counter all his low bobbing moves, flash uppercuts and his counter punches, which Manny may soon learn to master and neutralize.  

JMM's foot tricks may have escaped the eagle eyes of the referee, but next time around, more eyes will be watching for similar uncanny tricks which deserve points deduction from the judges. 

And to see Juan Manuel Marquez even bragging of his win against Pacquiao in all of their three fights, especially in this third fight, is he worth his boast and his pride?  

As the saying goes, "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the poeple all of the time."  

And many times, one's foolishness may bring one's downfall.

In Proverbs 14:16, “A wise man fears the Lord and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless.”

Also in Proverbs 14:17, “A quick tempered man does foolish things, and a crafty man is hated.”

Who is a Better Fighter - Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather?

This post serves as a commentary on Ben Thompson's interview -  "Manny Pacquiao - It's Going to be a Big Difference compared to the last Two Fights"

Whether you like it or not, more people may well be watching this coming 3rd fight between two of boxing's great names and  nemesis, Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12,  2011.

Who knows, this may probably be their last concluding fight against each other and many boxing fans may be wanting to see this to compare how Floyd Mayweather, Jr. may find himself fighting Manny Pacquiao on the ring, the same way many have tried comparing their fights with common opponents such as Oscar de la Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Shane Mosley.

Who fared better against these great boxers has become obvious, but you may well see how Manny and Floyd approach life as you try to see and make an analysis of their reactions before and after each of these fights.

While one prefers to be low-keyed and more humble, the other seems to be more comfortable being more vocal and aggressive.  And who gets into trouble most of the times?

And as I have noticed, Manny Pacquiao now fights at an entirely different level compared to his previous fights with Marquez, when he was still struggling timing his punches and movements as against the more scientifically adept and analytically skilled Juan Manuel Marquez.  The wily Marquez carefully studies his opponent's strengths and weaknesses and uses effective counter punches usually hitting their marks, and this same feat and style by the way, he shares with Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

If you too agree, nevertheless, Manny Pacquiao has improved much since he started using his well studied and well earned scientific skills of fighting under the meticulous eye and style of boxing's hall of famer, Freddie Roach.

And these skills were first used in November 2006 when Manny Pacquiao fought Erik Morales for the third time.  That was when Morales only lasted for three rounds unlike their previous fights, the first going through the whole distance of 12 rounds with Manny losing that fight, and the second one going through 10 rounds with Morales losing by a technical knockout and the referee had to stop the fight.

From then, Manny garnered more confidence inside the ring.  He faced his opponents more unafraid with relentless and more accurate attacks, with more fluid and well synchronized movements quickly pivoting left or right to better confuse his adversaries, used stunning punches from both hands, and carefully timed combinations which usually found their marks more than before.

Floyd Mayweather may have seen this marked improvement on Pacquiao and this may have influenced his seemingly reluctant stance.  And he seems content where he is now as he may appear happier preserving his unblemished win loss record which for him, perhaps, may have been earning him more money despite earning some ridicule on the sides from his critics and from those wanting to challenge him to go get his acts done and face Manny.

Pacquiao may not want to compare his fights with well known boxers whom Mayweather defeated, but one may not help but compare the difference over how they fared well against Floyd Mayweather as against Manny Pacquiao.

Simple deductions may become conclusive for many, but still, "there is nothing compared to the real fight happening between the two."

And Mayweather, in one way or the other, is able to swing many of his fans believing and routing for him despite the perceived weakness in his stance.

And as one may conjecture, "but is he really worth his name and his pride?"

Manny's humility, on the other hand, is so profound in above interview with Fight Hype's Ben Thompson, telling everybody that he does not want to compare his fights and that he enjoys seeing people entertained and happy as he does his fights, and praying that nobody gets hurt.

In boxing, no doubt, people get hurt, and Manny has shown a lot of self-control and discipline in his previous fights as he has tried pulling his punches as he deemed it necessary, and he made a few signs to the referee whenever he felt the other boxer  may just be unwisely exposing himself to greater danger, and the referee or the boxer's team needed to stop the fight.

Manny's compassion in these instances have been seen to be as big as his heart.  No wonder he has earned the respect of many people around the world with his different approach to life and to people around him.

He may be bigger in name and fame, but his humility, compassion and concern for others is what makes him greater, as this is what makes a man true to himself and to his Creator, as he learns to accept his weakness, and strives improve himself and inspires others to do the same.

Many times, it has been proven how foolish pride can kill, not only in boxing, but in everyday life.

It is only when we are able to attune ourselves to God's words of love, forgiveness, humility and compassion that we become a better person in this life.

Manny Pacquiao rightly puts it when he said, there is 'nothing personal' on this fight, despite an openly defiant Juan Manuel Marquez claiming on his t-shirt during their fight campaign trail in Manila that he won their last two fights.

The official score card for the two is one draw and one win in Pacquiao's favor, with Marquez quickly recovering using with great counter punches from three knockdowns in the first round of their first bout granting him the referee's favor for a draw.  This same referee later admitted he messed up with the draw decision, the three knockdowns should have at least given Pacquiao this upperhand on points.  Thus came the rematch.  And now, soon to happen, the third exciting match long awaited by both parties' fans.

All boxing fans, trainers, promoters and boxers eager to see how well these two fighters say they are worth their claim may as well watch this fight, and see how they may fare with boxing's P4P King.

And for me, Manny made a remarkable view of a sportsman, one who is there to entertain people while loving what he does best, not to hate, begrudge or create a division.

Win or lose in any match, the humble Manny Pacquiao professing the greatness and power of our Almighty God and Father in the love of others, for me, is already a winner.

In Matthew 23:11-12, Jesus Christ said to the crowd with his disciples, "The greatest among you will be your servant. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted."

Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, Resigning - What We can Learn from His Predicament

"Jobs at Apple - Master Inventor, Master Marketer" from Yahoo News

Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO resigning?  Perhaps, due to ill health having had a previous liver transplant and other illnesses attributed to him?

Well, for whatever reason,  'you can't buy good health with all the money, intelligence or wisdom you've got, can you' as some may say.

But he sure was a genius having led apple and the industry into new products and innovations, plus a great marketing thrust that even placed Apples ahead of top performing Exxon in the global business industry market.

[Read on another on Yahoo News post:  "6 Surprising Facts About Steve Jobs and Apple".]

Perhaps, it's God's way of making us realize, through Steve Job's example, that with all of one's material wealth and power, nobody can overpower or outshine God, as He humbles us when we are weak.

In 1 Corinthians 1:18-19, (full message on these powerful verses are on this link 1 Corinthians:17-31) Saint Paul states, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.  For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.’

Anytime we will all die, and it is before this state that we open up to our senses and to the truth that no material things can outlive the words of God.

It's time to know him more, dude, and open yourself to Him, through Christ, and you will see what true peace and happiness means in this life.

After all our hard work, can we bring anything with us when we die?
