When in doubt …. Pray

Someone is out there right now worrying how they are going to make ends meet for the rest of the month. You came into this New Year with hopes and aspirations of overflow. You were counting on this month to be “your month”. Don’t stress. Don’t worry. The year isn’t over yet. You have been in harder predicaments than this one and you made it out okay. You will make it out of this one too. Just don’t faint.

Now please read this Scripture in it’s entirety. It has helped me in my sunken place. Don’t worry…

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.-

Matthew 6:25-34

Bago Kape

Anytime, merong mainit na barakong kape sa kusina ni Nanay.

‘Yan ang isa sa gustong-gusto ko pag umuuwi ako sa ‘min sa Mindoro. Pero ‘nung isang araw, paghigop ko ng kape, napansin kong parang iba ang lasa.

“Bakit parang luma na ang kape?”, tanong ko kay Vicky, kasama namin sa bahay.

“Kahapon pa kasi ‘yan,” sagot ni Vicky. “‘Yung bagong kape, nasa takuri pa. Hindi mailagay dyan sa termos kasi me laman pa.”

Suskupo! Kung mamayang hapon pa masasalin ang bagong lutong kape at maiiwan uli sa termos hanggang kinabukasan, ibig sabihin, araw-araw—lumang kape ang iinumin namin!

Ganyan din sa buhay natin. Walang silbi ang anumang bagong hangarin o bagong pasya habang hindi tayo handang iwan ang mga lumang pananaw at pag-uugali.

Pwedeng merong bagong pagkakakitaan pero kung di nagbabago ang kinasanayang waldas o di-nakaplanong paggastos, lagi ka pa ring baon sa utang.

Kahit ilang ulit kang bigyan ng bagong pagkakataon para bumawi pagkatapos mong magkamali, kung di mo ititigil ang mga parehong okasyon ng pagkakamali, di kataka-takang tuluyang gumuho ang tiwala sa ‘yo ng mga tao sa paligid mo.

Anumang bago ang madagdag sa kaalaman mo paano maging mabuting magulang, kung lumang ugali pa rin ng paninisi, panunumbat at pagkukumpara ang bukambibig mo pag kausap ang anak, patuloy mong ipapasa sa kanya ang maliit na tingin sa sariili.

Merong magandang sinabi ukol dito ang spiritual guide at author na si Richard Rohr. “Transformation more often happens not when something new begins but when something old falls apart.”

Kung gusto natin ng tunay na pagbabago, hindi sapat na may bagong sinisimulan. Mas mahalaga ay matutunang talikuran ang luma na pumipigil sa paglago at pagbabago.

At hindi ito madali. Kakambal kasi ng pagiging bukas sa pagbabago ang pamimilipit at pangangapa. Pag tumanggi tayong daanan ito, nababalahaw tayo sa luma.

Maliban kung may tiwala ka sa puso.

Tiwala sa Diyos na humahabi ng kwento mo.

Tiwala sa buhay na may likas na daloy ng pagbabago at paglago.

At tiwala sa sarili dahil sa kwento mo nagaganap ang biyaya ng Diyos at ang batas ng buhay.

Bagong taon na. Me bagong kape sa termos. Kape tayo.

For those tears I died

And Jesus said
Come to the water
Stand by My side
I know you are thirsty
You won’t be denied
I felt ev’ry tear drop
When in darkness you cried
And I strove to remind you
That for those tears I died

 

You said You’d come
And share all my sorrows
You said You’d be there
For all my tomorrows
I came so close to sending You away
But just like You promised
You came there to stay
I just had to pray

 

Your goodness so great
I can’t understand
And dear Lord I know
That all this was planned
I know You’re here now
And always will be
Your love loosed my chains
And in You I’m free
But Jesus why me

 

Jesus I give You
My heart and my soul
I know that without God
I’d never be whole
Savior You opened
All the right doors
And I thank You and praise You
From earth’s humble shores
Take me I’m Yours

The reward of Wisdom

Proverbs 2-1:9

My child, learn what I teach you and never forget what I tell you. Listen to what is wise and try to understand it. Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight.Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. If you do, You will know what it means to fear the Lord and your will succeed in learning about God. It is the Lord who gives wisdom; from Him come knowledge and understanding.He will provides help and protection for those who are righteous and honest. He protects those who treat fairly and guards those who are devoted to Him…

 

And let this be our guide in all ways .Amens

AKWPE- 2018 Lucky Penny

Baby, look around
See that I’m nowhere to be found
You wanna feel me near
Then close your eyes and I’ll appear
Dream over me with a tear
Anything it takes to wish me here
Magic and sweet lullabies
Any lucky penny will do fine
Oh, to wish me here
Your arms are open wide
Waiting for me to run inside
I’ll meet you in the clouds
Please use your power to bring heaven down
Dream over me with a tear
Anything it takes to wish me here
Magic and sweet lullabies
Any lucky penny will do fine
Oh, to wish me here
And when we’re face to face
The world…

2018- I am looking forward for the big change to unfold to this story. God has made some twist and turn .In the end, With much faith – He will give me the perfect ending…

Someone

 

Someone to wake up to. To share the weather with, then the coffee.
Someone to dream with—to plan and scheme and then celebrate with.
Someone to win with, and someone to lose with.

Someone to care for and protect—and to let go of and watch fly.
Someone to stare at in wonder, and to think, “That heart loves mine.”

Someone to talk long with under stars on frosty nights. To giggle through scarves and gloves and hats with, and to kiss under mistletoe.

Someone to hold. Someone to be held by. To be treasured by a treasure.

So
Someone to notice birds with. To catch flashes of blue and green and purple and brown—and to feel the excitement of soaring little wonders. To see life as it is, not as it seems.

Someone to sit with and watch children, perhaps our own, and to laugh in their innocence and swell at our luck.
Someone to forget with.

Someone to cook with. To sweep mud off the floor. Someone to make magic out of mundane with and smile because it’s with each other.

Someone to cry with. To share rivers of grief indistinguishable from the other. To hold and to hug, and to help and to heal.
Someone to hold hands with. To glance at, fingers intertwined beneath coffee tables, and hearts blurring between eyes.

Someone to lay with with, nothing in between. To be everything holy and exist in a dream. To be naked to our souls and give everything unseen.
Someone to trust. To tell darkest secrets to and reveal hungry fears. Someone to know all of themselves and to want to see more. Someone whose eyes reflect what’s in ours.

Someone to walk with. To travel with. To find pockets of magic in grey city dullness. To drive miles and miles just for that “mile” that’s ours.
Someone to smile with. A deep knowing grin that says, “I see you” and “I’m staying.”
Someone to miss, even for a minute—until they return, and it feels like home again.
Someone to stare at for moments unending.

Someone to love.

Dear Future Husband

Hello Darling,

I don’t know who you are. I don’t know if I know you already, or if you are a future I have yet to fall upon.

I have been preparing to meet you my entire life. For many years, I have looked forward to you with an ache in my heart. I felt a hole within me that I wanted to fill with you, a space in my heart plump with love, ready for you to rest in.

There have been men along the way who have grabbed my heart, and at the time I often felt that they were you. But as I push forward alone, I know you are still out there looking for me, just as I look for you.
I have traveled through the lands of relationships and dating. I have traversed heartache and loneliness—and now have come to comfortably rest within myself.

I have learned so many lessons that have polished my edges, that have broken me open, and it’s in the crushing of old dreams, beliefs, and illusions that possibilities open up. I thirst for myself now, to learn who I am in your absence. For only in your absence have I seen the crevices of darkness that keep you at bay. I see the drive for approval, the desire to be perfect, the numbing of feelings, the icky feelings of unworthiness, the walls created as protection from imaginary future hurts, the judgments about myself.

I have met God and established a relationship with Source that fills me so completely that I know I am perfect in all the darkness I have uncovered in your absence. I know this path has been designed to bring me to myself, to understand that the love I seek is within. I have questioned so many times if I accidentally missed you, if I judged all those before you too harshly, but I know now that it’s all perfect just as it falls: perfect timing, and perfectly placed.
I am being molded for you as I am sure you are being molded for me. But I have so many that I get to love right now: a full roster of players that are on the starting line of my love game. I am grateful in every cell of my being for the very full life I have.

I believe the world is full of love, and people are love at their core. I see light everywhere I look. This path I have taken has been intensely painful, but each hurt I have used to the fullest benefit.
I am so much more of me than I have ever been before. I am the magnificent woman you deserve, for I know your soul even before I meet you. I know your kindness and empathy, your awareness, your strength, your commitment, and your love of life.

I will continue to learn and live and love until you arrive. I will be focused on the joy within my life so that when you walk into it, it will match your joyous vibration.
I am now whole; there is no hole left to fill in my heart. Yet it remains plump with love and open for your arrival.

All my love,
