Here’s an interesting word that’s been headlined lately: 

E’VIL, a. e’vl. [Heb. to be unjust or injurious, to defraud.]

1. Having bad qualities of a natural kind; mischievous; having qualities which tend to injury, or to produce mischief.
  Some evil beast hath devoured him. Gen.37.
 
2. Having bad qualities of a moral kind; wicked; corrupt; perverse; wrong; as evil thoughts; evil deeds; evil speaking; an evil generation.
 

 3. Unfortunate; unhappy; producing sorrow, distress, injury or calamity; as evil tidings; evil arrows; evil days.

    oOo ~ oOo

E’VIL, n. Evil is natural or moral. Natural evil is any thing which produces pain, distress, loss or calamity, or which in any way disturbs the peace, impairs the happiness, or destroys the perfection of natural beings. 

Moral evil is any deviation of a moral agent from the rules of conduct prescribed to him by God, or by legitimate human authority; or it is any violation of the plain principles of justice and rectitude.
 
There are also evils called civil, which affect injuriously the peace or prosperity of a city or state; and political evils, which injure a nation, in its public capacity.

All wickedness, all crimes, all violations of law and right are moral evils. Diseases are natural evils, but they often proceed from moral evils.

2. Misfortune; mischief; injury. 
There shall no evil befall thee. Ps.91.
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself. Prov.22.
 
3. Depravity; corruption of heart, or disposition to commit wickedness; malignity.
  The heart of the sons of men is full of evil. Eccles.9.

   

Something a bit relevant during this time in our country. 

CREDIBLE, a. [L.

1. That may be believed; worthy of credit. A thing is credible, when it is known to be possible, or when it involves no contradiction or absurdity; it is more credible, when it is known to come within the ordinary laws or operations of nature. With regard to the Divine Being and his operations, every thing is credible which is consistent with his perfections, and supported by evidence or unimpeachable testimony, for his power is unlimited. With regard to human affairs, we do not apply the word to things barely possible, but to things which come within the usual course of human conduct, and the general rules of evidence.

 

2. Worthy of belief; having a claim to credit; applied to persons. A credible person is one of known veracity and integrity, or whose veracity may be fairly deduced from circumstances. We believe the history of Aristides and Themistocles, on the authority of credible historians.

 

Sharing my word find for the day. 

FOR’TITUDE, n. [L. fortitudo, from fortis, strong.]

That strength or firmness of mind or soul which enables a person to encounter danger with coolness and courage, or to bear pain or adversity without murmuring, depression or despondency. Fortitude is the basis or source of genuine courage or intrepidity in danger, of patience in suffering, of forbearance under injuries, and of magnanimity in all conditions of life. We sometimes confound the effect with the cause, and use fortitude as synonymous with courage or patience; but courage is an active virtue or vice, and patience is the effect of fortitude.
 
Fortitude is the guard and support of the other virtues.

 

You Should Be a Dancer
You have a unique combination of grace and athleticism..Whether you become a salsa dancer or a ballerina, you need to get dancing!

 

What Sort of Artist Should You Be?

 

I took this test and I was quite surprised that it did match my “secret” ambitions. I did do a little bit of dancing in my lifetime at least once on the sacred stage of the Main Theatre of the CCP.  I love ballet just as much as I love scrapbooking, but alas, now I just do most of my dancing in the dark.  🙂

Aargh, I think I need to change this template soon because my pix are not showing up properly. Anyway, this is just an addendum to the previous post to give proper credit to the layout I made.The designer credits are as shown below: (hope this one works out now)digi-freebie-credits-travel-400-x-134.jpg 

Been so busy these past few weeks because hubby has been part of the Philippine Energy Summit held at the SMX Mall of Asia so I have been a “single” parent to my kids for the meantime.  So  this post is a hodge podge of new and old news. Why “Uragon na”? Well when we were in Legazpi last year for the Climate Change Conference in Albay spearheaded by Rep. Joey Salceda, I saw this sign on one of the billboards near the airport in Legazpi and I wondered what it meant. (Perhaps, dianeskie can enlighten me a bit on what it means 🙂 LOL )Anyway, I enjoyed our trip there so much trying the local “bicol express“and “laing“, exploring  Hoyop-hoyopan Cave, Cagsawa Ruins, and of course the majestic Mayon Volcano. Our tour guide told us that it was a 10 to 12 hr drive to Legazpi if ever we wanted to go back to visit. Out of  the many Mayon pics I took I had only scrapped one so far last year.

Here it is: ( a scraplift – mikkel koser bamsen)
