My Journey with WordPress

Hey! It’s been a year since I started blogging at WordPress. Really, every time I open my blog has been a wonderful time. I can share my heart, encourage and inspire, even hone my knacks and interests in writing and photography.

Well, changing the world won’t be that easy.  I still have to fight through a thousand boredoms, finish a hundred drafts, go to unknown places just to take those precious photos and  to pour and pour and pour my heart out.  I will still have to bring greater glory to my God for all of these won’t be enough to repay all that He’s done for me. This journey–I’m lovin’ it!

Happy Anniversary Dear WordPress!

The Song of a Creature II

Butterflaay2

Creation reveals the Beauty of the Creator. Through the works of His hands, He is letting Himself be known by mankind. Nature do not reflect, reason nor speak but its beauty and unique magnificence expose God’s incredible wisdom, immeasurable knowledge,boundless power and breath-taking glory. Behold, the beauty of our God!

Psalm 19:1-4

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.

The Beam of Wood

The Beam of Wood

Our Heroes

Eyes are filled with tears, thousands of homes and hundreds of lives are lost. Almost the entire Visayan region here in the Philippines is devastated by Typhoon Yolanda. Streets are impassable due to debris of ruined houses. Corpses are rotting, leaving a reeking stench everywhere.  Most survivors are starving and dehydrated, hospitals are jam-packed with patients and children are already dying from sicknesses that require medicine that their families couldn’t afford.

The whole picture is very discouraging; crammed with utter chaos and soiled with sorrow. However, there is a bigger sight that we need to witness, an awakening, the stirring of heroism and unity is becoming the new hope for the sufferers and for the whole country as well.     

More than being dispirited and cynical,  I became much more confident that the Philippines will get by this mishap easier. I was in awe seeing all kinds of people and ages, from all walks of life, with different social status, stand hand in hand helping the Visayan Region and the Philippines to be on its feet again from its unexpected fall. Every private and public organization is doing their contributions to boost and quicken the relief given to the victims. I’ve heard about different countries doing more than just pouring their sentiments but really helping, lending hands, sending help and donations from all around the world. I saw different people sacrificing and lending everything they could give. Celebrities and people we look up to are there in the site, encouraging people and telling them of hope and endurance. 

Every little thing that we do to help our brothers and sisters will go a long way. Surely, our sacrifices may go unpaid off, but still, the help we’ll give will be priceless to those who will receive it. It will forever remain in their hearts and memories that for the moment they needed us, we were there. 

Our heroes, we can never thank each of you for all your efforts to help the Philippines to rise again, one thing is for sure— from the bottom of the heart of the Filipino, “Salamat sa kabayanihan mo, kapatid!”  Thanks for your heroism, brothers and sisters!        

“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God” Hebrews 13:16

Acts of Kindness

Certainly, one of the simplest ways to make a day much brighter is to award someone a random, genuine act of kindness. Simple smiles given in return may mean much more than mere appreciation or thankfulness. Most people are thirsty for thoughtfulness and kindheartedness, but to some, kindness and compassion is treasure, a beautiful panorama that is by only means audible to the heart.

What makes these simple deeds so pleasing,  awe-inspiring and scenic? As no blood relation or tie of friendship bonds people who give to those given, random kindness proves real care and concern. Even personality and character are often disregarded when it comes to giving out; most of the time, what’s important is “I’ve helped someone today” *smiles*.  This is so simple yet rather unexplainable. We, human beings, have something innate that makes us hungry for good values, morality and kindness.

That is, we are created in the image of God, good and righteous. God’s nature and character are flowing through our veins, in our whole beings. We are made and born to love, give, impart and share.

Indeed, God Himself is Love. He is kind to us just because He is; its not because of who we are or  what we’ve done. Do you want to see kindness? Look at this.

Philippians 2:5-8

5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
        even death on a cross!

Surely, this is kindness. But this is more than mere kindness, again, this is wholehearted, unreserved love. God perceiving our impurities and sins, came down and took off His glory and draw closer to sinners as a man to bear our sins and transgressions and die on the cross.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves,not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.  Philippians 2:3-4

Pray for the Philippines. We need your help. On behalf of the victims of Typhoon Yolanda here in the Philippines, Salamat po sa tulong! #Haiyan #YolandaPH
