REALTORS' PRAYER

REALTORS' PRAYER

Our Lord and our God we praise You, We glorify You
We magnify You and thank you for anointing us for
our major role in the real estate profession.
O, Lord, guide us in the conduct of our business
from day to day, may it be pleasing in Your sight
We most heartily pray, Help us always, to be fair
and may our dealings be done according to Your Word
In truth and honestly, we pray, that we may compel
obedience to the Code of Ethics of the real estate profession

Let us take Your Laws to heart, and make them truly ours
To place welfare of our country, the fundamental rights
of my fellow citizens and the best interest and expediency.
For the generous shall prosper but the greedy shall decline,
with Jesus Christ as our model and Bible as our Instrument,
May we conduct our business always with love and compassion

THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY


THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY

The fight of the century
Will be mark in history

Whether Mayweather or
Manny Pacquiao takes it all

Who ever is true and noble
Will stand tall and be the victor

Before every fall pride comes first
and the humble will have favors

The fight of the century
Is the fight for greatness

Like every great rivalry
The winner will have revelry

If you want to be the greatest
Be the servant of all

A powerful principle
Of power in control

Like in every battle
It is already half won

But if fate will intervene
He who has faith will prevail

The Fight of the Century 
Is a testament of God's Glory

COMPASSION

COMPASSION
By: Deo Antonio D. Llamas
Let compassion direct you
In everything that you do

Show everyone you care
Do what is just and fare

In life every act of kindness
Can bring joy and happiness

To people you touch and help
Giving a part of your time and self

Rewards you in many ways
You will find good days ahead

Builds your heart and character
Makes this world a little bit better
