Lenten reflection

Lord, I am not perfect. My shortcomings and weaknesses separate me from You. Take me back...teach me. Have me a heart that only see the inherent goodness of mankind. Control my emotions when I act on impulse without careful thought over its results. I'm deeply sorry for all wrongs I have done to others and to You as well.  Cleanse my heart with only motive of pure and harmless intentions. Amen


"Thus, when you give to the needy,
 do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
 so that your giving will be in secret.
 Then your Father who sees all that is done in secret,
 will reward you." - Matthew 6:1.6

Why there are broken vows

Love is never gone in marriage. When you wake up and don't feel the love (that you only know) to your partner, it's not about that sad feeling.. for love never leaves. The truth is, it's only to deceive your heart, so that you'll learn that true love isn't solely based on feelings but with years- it's in commitment. Everything has a learning process..even in knowing what love is all about.

Why there are so many broken vows nowadays? It's because we have not gone far enough to discover the real essence of a love. We are too weak to go on with time and end up hurting each other.

"You hurt your partner because you are finding your own selfish way out. You believe you have the command to defend your stupid feeling and you are actually caught in the bait of it."Love is not just a matter of heart, it's both the mind and the heart ..that's why there is a word called "sanity". Once you leave your partner because you think you fall out of love..you are a big wrong.Your misconception of love leads you to finding someone new because you define love so poorly and that you must know."

We are perfect examples of imperfections and thus we admit our human frailties, we stop from there.

Marriage is not created for a love to be temporal. The vow is made for us to realize that we need to grow even more in love every single day and that each waking hour is another discovery to the real meaning of it. The real triumph in all forms of relationships can only be tested by time.. no more, no less.

And so for you who feel broke, I wish words were good enough to let you know that it's never your lost. It's just the kind of someone who hasn't realized your worth.


a resolute life

"Everything has its own purpose under heaven."

I am gathering my thoughts again after few months or say "years" of hiatus from blogosphere. There'd been countless of stories in life that even when you don't have to write them literally, they show us everywhere around us; circumstances that are happy, happier, happiest; sad, sadder, saddest..we all go through the superlatives. But after all these, we are honed.

While I was recuperating from having miscarriage, I saw how the atmosphere in the house would likely swallow me whole. The house was messy, my husband ate instant meals because I had yet enough energy to attend the kitchen and worst.. left alone in the silence corner of our room, dealt with the excruciating pain both physically and emotionally because my husband had to go back to work. 

Now that I feel better, thanks be to God that my husband and I are strong enough to have moved on. Faith, hope, and love are the essentials of these all. 

We keep going. To God be the glory!
Life is beautiful.

Ciao..ci vediamo!


Back for good..

"Do not think of life as a competition because you will never find real peace. Think instead always that you are a gift, meant to be shared so that your life will have grand meaning. Only in an open mind can one find true happiness and contentment in his heart."

This is what I learn from Mitch Albom's "Tuesdays with Morrie." And that you just have to enjoy each birthday and each season of your life because each has great contribution to what you will become when old age comes.
You will no longer worry about having wrinkles because they prove how you surpass life both in odd and even situations.
Trying the blogosphere again. I hope this works. It's been a while.

Where was I? I was so in hurry to make my life always on-the-go with work and personal life. And I wonder if I did not miss a moment and people. Whatever way God courses my life now, only He can tell and direct. I just feel now that I just want to serve my God all my life... through the ordinary days to extraordinary ones where the orbit now points to a foreign land. To God be the glory!
