Do Not Crumble

"Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony." - Colossians 3:12-14
Do not crumble... when struggles are tossing you up and down.
Do not crumble... when problems seem to be too spiced up.
Do not crumble... when trials looks like a regular diner combo.
Do not crumble because life is like an endless buffet... where struggles, problems and trials are always on the menu.
Life is indeed like a smorgasbord dinner... just put on your plate what you can take in and take one bite at a time... so you won't have spasm.

Prayer
Lord, feed me with your faith.
Let me drink from your fountain of life.
And satisfy my hunger with your forgiving heart.
Amen.

It's more than a Tradition

The holiday is generic. Well, the whole world celebrates almost the same holidays every year. It is part of human culture since time immemorial.

It's more than a yearly celebration
It's more than a family event.
It's more than a tradition.

The holiday is the time to reflect for the blessings we received... the ups that we sustained... and the downs that we survived.
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

The Coming

We all waited in great anticipation.
We all expected in great contemplation.
And we all hoped in great apprehension.
The coming is the fulfillment of the promise.
The coming is the ultimate joy.
The coming means hope.
It's Christmas... let us all rejoice for the fulfilled promise of joy and hope.

Are your Ready?

"Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect." Matthew 24:44
You can run but you cannot hide. Life is not a game of "Hide and Go Seek". You need to prepare for the worse to come. Face it like a man... so they say.
You can wait but don't fall asleep. Life will not wait for you to get ready. You make that decision the moment you open you eyes. And when you open your eyes don't blink... you might miss a lot.
You can love like there is no tomorrow. Life is your training ground to accomplish what you need to be prepared to face your creator. And when you are finally standing face to face with Him... smile and shake His Hand - it's your time so shine!

It's not enough

Thank you is enough... if we know how to say it whole-heartedly.
Thank you is enough... if we mean it with all honestly.
Thank you is enough... if we feel it in our gut.
Many times we say "thank you" because we know that it is the right thing to say. We say thank you even if we know deep inside that it is not true because we know that we are obliged to. And we say it because we just feel the need to say it.
But being grateful is a matter of decision that one has to make. Sometime our very heart dictates it. Other times our emotion runs it. And most of the time... we feel like saying it because we appreciate the blessings we received above and beyond what we truly deserved.

Prayer
Lord, thank you.
I know it is not enough but that's all I can say
I don't know how to show how much I appreciate
all the blessings you are pouring on me.
And saying "thank you" is the only way I know how.
So thank you.

Pumpkins

What is it about the pumpkin?
It is not only about the pie or the goodies. It is all about the seeds of thanksgiving.
What is fall without pumpkin?
It is not only about the planting and the harvesting of the crops. It is all about giving thanks for a bountiful life.
What is Halloween without pumpkin?
It is not only about Jack-O-Lantern and the whole lot of creepiest tell-tales of  the underworld. It is about giving a shade of light to darkness.
What is life without pumpkin?
It is not only about the veggie and it's ability to conquer hunger. It is about God's blessing and caring for his people not to go hungry. 
Thank you for the Pumpkin!

Sunset

Sunset is the end of the day but not the end of life.
Sunset is the conclusion of a long day but not the conclusion of a hypothetical existence.
Sunset is the finale of the day's achievement but not the grand finale of success.
The sun sets at the end of the day... but the sun will rise again to start another day.
Sunsets like sunrises... are blessings and life's priceless gifts.
I am thankful for the 45 years of sunsets.

Let Us...

Let's stop and relax. Life is so good.
Let's look and listen. The wind is whispering.
Let's give and share.The blessings are abundant.
Let's love and forgive. Because it feels good.
And let's be thankful for life is beautiful!

The Power to Love

"... for God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power and love and self-control." 2 Timothy 1:7
We do not love because we feel like it but rather, we love because we feel it. We do not command someone to love us but rather, we are loved because we know how to give love to others. And we do not only have love but rather, we have the power to love.
Love can move mountain and it did happen many times. Love is powerful enough to change not only the world but the hardest of heart devoid of feelings and compassion for the heartless world. And love is the only thing that can change anything and everything.
To love or not to love? To love - is a decision. Not to love - is an option. At the end of a day... after one has made a choice... he still has to face the consequences of his action.

Prayer
Lord, teach me how to love unconditionally
Teach me how to love the way you love me
Teach me to make better choices
and teach me not to choose who to love.
Amen

The Color of Fall

The signs have started to show and there is nothing that can stop...
the color to change... the leaves to fall... the rain to pour!
The color of fall is a blessing that never ceases to fascinate...
the craving soul... the longing heart... the restless mind!
The sceneries are stunning and there is nothing left to do but.. STOP...
and let us count our blessings and be thankful for a wonderful harvest... for the colorful memories of summer!
