Never Exactly What I Expect It To Be


“My part is to trust God,

to fix my eyes on Him,

to acknowledge His sovereignty in all my life’s areas.”

My Privilege


“Father, I know You’re going to do some amazing things in the world today,

I’d like the privilege of being included in some of them.”

Four years ago today, a doulus on hiatus dipped her once wandering feet into the world blogging. That season has come to an end.
January of 2015, she got the Master’s charge, “Go back,  help them in My harvest field.” Since then, this has space has been placed in the back burner. My apologies, my friends.
Beginning today, I’ll be sharing my journey with you. And if you find this has been worth your while, would you be so kind and let me know. Maraming salamat po!

It is my prayer that our loving heavenly Father, grant the desires of your heart and bless the work of your hands!


in nomine domini nostri Jesu Christi,


little servant of Christ

Kahit Papaano


Tuwing aking binabalikan kahapon, ang lumipas na panahon.

Di ko maiwasan na manghinayang, pilit kong limutin na lang.

Kaya’t magwawalang-bahala, para bang walang nagawa.

Nais kong mag – lingkod at sumunod, parang kulang pa rin aking pagod.


Kahit papaano’y gamitin Mo, nakayanang alay sa Iyo, Hesus

Kahit papaano’y awitin ko, kagalakan sa puso ay taos

Kahit munti ngunit kung pinag-pala, ay higit pa mang dakila

Kapiraso mang awit ay gamitin Mo kahit papaano


‘Di man nangangaral ng tulad nila, ay ihahayag din Kita

Kahit ‘di tanyag sa aking larangan, mag-aalay ng mainam

Isang basong tubig man ang hatid, pagpalain Mo ng higit

Lalo’t may pag-ibig sa aking dibdib, kalooban Mo’y tinig sa isip

Little Servant of Christ…Still


I am Maria Cristina Sadia Vargas, little servant of Christ. I was born Filipino, proud of my kulay, kayumangging kaligatan. All things I do, “in nomine domini nostri Jesu Christi”. My heart’s desire, the work of my hands, is to see more people knowing, loving and serving Him. Till I hear my Master’s call, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”


Twenty eight years ago, I decided to follow Jesus.  Ten thousand and two hundred twenty days later, I tried Him and I found His promises are true
He’s everything He said that He would be.

And the life I live, I will live for Him solely.

I’m Older – Not Old

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


A Prayer As I Grow Older

“O Lord, You know I am growing older!

Keep me from closing my eyes to the fact.

Keep me from becoming a pest, a self – appointed sage with the annoying habit of thinking I must say something on every subject and on every occasion.

Keep my mind free from the repetition of past experiences and endless details. Seal my lips about my aches and pains.

I do not ask for improved memory, but for less cockiness about the memory of others. Teach me to admit that sometimes I am mistaken.

Make me sweeter and mellower as my age progresses. Let me never grow old – only older.

May it be said of me,

‘Though our  outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.’

(2 Corinthians 4:16)”

365 + 1


Every morning, mercy’s new
Every morning, I will fix my eyes on You!
It’s day one of the rest of my life
It’s day one of the best of my life
And I’m marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

What Cancer Can’t Do

till we see you again, Pnat

What Cancer Can’t Do
by Dan Richardson

Cancer is so limited…
It cannot cripple love,
It cannot shatter hope,
It cannot corrode faith,
It cannot eat away peace,
It cannot destroy confidence,
It cannot kill friendship,
It cannot shut out memories,
It cannot silence courage,
It cannot invade the soul,
It cannot reduce eternal life,
It cannot quench the Spirit,
It cannot lessen the power of the resurrection.
