No, it's actually Ma. Seraphina Helena.
She was named after the two saints, St. Seraphina and St. Helena.
Feastday: March 12
Seraphina was born in San Gimignano, Italy, to a poor family. She was known for her self denial and acts of penance as a young girl. A mysterious illness left this beautiful girl unattractive; her eyes, feet, and hands became deformed and eventually Seraphina was paralyzed. Her mother and father both died while she was young. She was devoted to St. Gregory the Great. She died on the feast of St. Gregory, exactly as she had been warned by Gregory in a dream. Seraphina was a very helpful child around the family home. She did many of the chores and helped her mother spin and sew. Her feast day is March 12.
Feastday: August 18
Empress mother of Constantine the Great. She was a native of Bithynia, who married the then Roman general Constantius I Chlorus about 270. Constantine was born soon after, and in 293, Constantius was made Caesar, or junior emperor. He divorced Helena to marry co Emperor Maximianís stepdaughter. Constantine became emperor in 312 after the fateful victory at Milvian Bridge, and Helena was named Augusta, or empress. She converted to Christianity and performed many acts of charity, including building churches in Rome and in the Holy Land. On a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Helena discovered the True Cross. She is believed to have died in Nicomedia. Her porphyry sarcophagus is in the Vatican Museum. Geoffrey of Monmouth, England, started the legend that Helena was the daughter of the king of Colchester, a tradition no longer upheld. In liturgical art Helena is depicted as an empress, holding a cross.
OK naman ah.. gusto ka naman niya.. LOL kadeceiving naman ang title ng post po kala ko may tinatago sayong lihim na matindi ang nililigawan mo.
manyak talaga ni kreuk kahit kelan.Tara sa Pasig!
ts.. inabangan mo kasi ng sobra-sobra sa detalye.. nawawala ang spontaneity.
Malaki na ba ang ulo ni Selena?
^^^ asa quezon ave na po siya wag ng hanapin...
^^^ utang na loob.
ON TOPIC: i don't believe in courtships unless a guy already knew the girl before courting her. when a guy barely knows a girl and decides to court her... what's his basis for going for the girl?! external beauty lang?
<< I have known Selena for 6 years before I started formally courting her. Pero before courtship may mga paramdam na ako.
However, we're mere acquaintances for 6 years.
Patulong naman oh...
We're in courtship. So yung power madalas na kay Selena. So what are the things I can do para mabalance ang power at mapunta ang ibang power sa akin?
I am doing withdrawing (yung di masyadong pagtext at pagkamusta at pagtawag sa kanya).
What else can I do?
Here are some things I also did recently. Can you please tell me if I did right or bad moves ang mga ito?
1. I told Selena about some things I observed. I told her I believe that communication is two-way. If I tell her a story about me, or I text her a message, I told her it's proper that she reacts to it. Same goes with me, I should react and listen to her stories.
I told her, "while I understand that it would take you some time to reply because of your tight schedule, I and you should adjust, hindi lang isang party. Do you think so, or do you have a different opinion? This means I adjust to you, and YOU ALSO SHOULD ADJUST TO ME. I appreciate your adjustments though, and I know you appreciate mine.
2. I also told her on the phone this "I appreciate deeply your statements like when are you going to see me and can you see me at least once weekly. I really appreciate your teaching me how to win your heart. But SINCE DAPAT GIVE AND TAKE, let me win your heart combining how you want to, with my OWN WAYS, MY OWN APPROACH. I would love to accept you for who you are. I'd also appreciate if YOU ACCEPT ME FOR WHO I AM, FOR MY OWN WAYS OF COURTING YOU.
Then I said, " I really appreciate you as a person, Selena. I hope you could still continue to give us a try. After all, IT'S NOT ONLY YOU WHO IS CONSIDERING ME. BUT I AM CONSIDERING YOU. We are considering each other, sabi mo di ba? Of course, nasa iyo ang desisyon today. If i said anything offensive or mali, I'm really sorry."
She was listening to me all the time, and decided to continue. (I guess, coz wala naman siyang sinabing iend na namin ang ligawan namin). She also asked if she hurt me raw, I said " No, you didn't hurt me. I was just wondering why sometimes di ka nagrereact sa text."
So she explained that sometimes daw putol yung message etc.
Did I shift some of the power to me na po?
3. I explained to her na dapat lalaki ang may final say sa isang relationship.
She said, "I believe dapat joint ang decision making. Joint participation."
I said, "Yes, I believe dapat joint ang decision making. But the man has to HAVE THE FINAL SAY in decisions. However, it should not come as if from him but from God dapat. Because, dapat pinagpray na ng lalaki at babae, both, yung right decision. Anyway, the final decision should be reasonable and according to God's laws. Kapag ang sinasabi ng babae ay yung reasonable at tama, then iyon dapat ang final say ng lalaki. Pero pag hindi ganun ang final say ng lalaki, eh di wag sumunod ang babae.
This is because the Bible says, wives submit to your husbands. Nasa ephesians ito.
Kaya dapat ang may final say ang lalaki. Sabi ko sa kanya.
Selena: "Pierre, I have been independent all my life. I have been making my own decisions since I was a child. I don't need somebody else to be making the decisions for me."
I :" It's not a MATTER OF NEEDING SOMEONE ELSE TO MAKE THE DECISIONS FOR YOU. IT'S A MATTER OF FOLLOWING WHAT'S IN THE BIBLE. Sabi sa Bible, wives submit to your husbands. Sabi dun, maraming kinds of submission. Rebellion is not the way of the christian. Submission to parents if you're a child, submission to the authorities, submission to husbands, submission to teachers and employers. Submit, EXCEPT if contrary to God's laws.
Selena: "Kaya ko namang magsubmit sa magiging husband ko. Pero kelangang reasonable iyong decision."
I : "I agree, dapat nga reasonable. Also, dapat pakinggan ng lalaki ang view ng babae. True listening is considering that the other party might be right.
AFter that day, she seemed more submissive to me, kasi I was the one who decided on our eating place, pati where we will sit, mga ganun.
What do you think????
By the way, lately, since I have been withdrawing (hindi na ako nagtetext, tumatawag, nakikipagmeet)..
2 days na siya ang unang nagtext "Psst, kamusta ka na? Buhay ka pa?!
and also she texted, "Kamusta ka na" yesterday evening.
To both I responded.
4. Yung mga responses ko mga ganito:
"You remind me of evenings" etc.
Tapos tinatanong niya ako, "what do you mean?"
Basta parang mga bagay na di niya magets. Kasi sabi ni lancealmekian dapat daw mapag-isip yung babae.
I also sent her a message, "Nareceive mo ba yung text ko. It is something exciting."
selena: Hindi, ano iyon?
I: Ah, since di mo natanggap, that means it's not yet time to tell you that thing."
Lastly, she asked me -Did you accept the legal editor post in Makati?
I: Ma. Seraphina Helena, life is full of mysteries and PERSONAL SPACES. Reveal, and it will be revealed unto you....
Di daw niya magets... pero may idea siya.
