4 Wealth is worthless
in the day of wrath,
righteousness delivers from death.
Kawikaan 11:4 (Tagalog) Magandang Balita Biblia (TPV)
Walang halaga ang yaman sa araw ng kamatayan ngunit ang katuwiran ay naglalayo sa kapahamakan.
I always dreamed of being rich. I wished for the time that we would not work so hard just to be able to provide food to eat and medicine for the family. I wished to have a lot of things and I love to have a lot opportunities to go different places with no worries on our finances.
Not having all of these on hand today makes me sad until the “Pork Barrel scam and Napoles” news break out.
According to Philippine Star news Janet Lim-Napoles, the alleged brains behind the P10-billion pork barrel scam, once again suffered hypertension attack on her second day at Fort Sto. Domingo in Laguna.

I learned from the news that she is filthy rich but having all those richness frozen by the government made it useless.
I did envy her for sometime knowing that she had so much. I could have all my dreams come true with all those richness but I would never trade places with her specially in this predicament that she is into right now. I think nobody would like. If she had gotten all her richness in good fate or not, only she can tell but we all know that God knows and I believe God has His ways of exposing the truth one day.
Our verse says, "ngunit ang katuwiran ay naglalayo sa kapahamakan." I simply wish for the truth to come out to end the misery that this incident had been causing to everybody.
Heavenly Father, a simple me is thank you for the little wealth I have... I have a job, a loving family, good kids, handsome loving and God fearing husband :) and few friends that I treasure. Thank you. Lord for the peace of mind, good health and freedom. Thank you for the opportunity to speak, to hear , to play, to eat and go places . Lord, now I see...I have a lot! In Jesus name I pray. Amen
