LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance…” (2 Peter 3:9, the Holy Bible).

WHAT IS COSETENG NOISY ABOUT? I am happy that former Sen. Anna Dominique Coseteng plans to file more charges against former officials and employees of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) and Philippine Amateur Swimming Association (PASA) in connection with alleged misuse of funds and discrimination against local swimmers, but is she serious with these plans?

I mean, Coseteng was congresswoman for nine years, and senator for a number of years, but what did she do against supposed graft and corruption at PAGCOR and against supposed problems besetting swimming during her terms of office? Can she point to anything that would show she was really interested in the welfare of Philippine athletes while she was in a position to do something?
Or, is Coseteng making noises now simply because she is interested to return to politics once again?

ROCO REMEMBERED: Six years after his death on August 5, 2005, former Sen. Raul Roco is still getting accolades for his insistence to be truthful whenever he delivered a speech or even as much as talked to anyone in public, a trait that endeared him particularly to the Filipino youth of his time.

The latest recognition of Roco’s truthfulness in whatever he said, especially in the presence of other people, came from Presidential Communications Office Undersecretary Manolo Quezon, during an interview at the ABS CBN News Channel (ANC) the other day.

Quezon said Roco’s passion for watching what he says in public, ever wary of dishing out only the truth all the time, is something that President Aquino now is also exhibiting in the latter’s own speeches, and is something that will be displayed during his first State of the Nation Address on July 25, 2011.

JESUS IS “MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER”: Here is a very beautiful and compelling message about Jesus Christ, found in Isaiah 9 of the Holy Bible: “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned…

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.

“He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this…”
