After The Movie, "Little Boy..."

Add caption
 I shed some tears...maybe more like a whimper. I didn't care how it would be conveyed. More likely vulnerable, soft, sensitive --all of which transcendent of me going beyond ordinary emotions.
I wish that I could occupy that rarest boldness and childlike faith in believing that miracles do happen. And the little boy's journey to his indescribable love for his father's return from war was finally rewarded.
 I believe that it's a combination of faith greater than a mustard seed that became as high as the sky from the little boy; the will to survive on the part of the father and the divine intervention of the Heavenly Father that were interwoven as the ultimate God's plan. 

Thank you, Lord,  for the chance to watch the movie with my sister Cely and the church congregation. I know that nothing is happenstance and that you are directing my steps.

Have a very Blessed Sunday everyone!

My chocolate Lab Cocoa with me. I guessed, she has missed me while I was out watching the movie. For I don't usually go out on a Sunday afternoon. Nice to be missed...

"Fall's Ardent Arrival..."

Others' periscope of Summer coming to a close is maybe a week from now; perhaps depending where they live but as for me "the arrival of Fall" came yesterday at dawn. It feels like a new appearance that rises from a cloudy sky coming down as a brazen breeze touching my shoulders. Could it be just a rising perception? 

Thus, I opened my upstairs' windows to air out the house. Then, brewed some coffee grains and headed out to the park with my favorite friend Labrador Cocoa. Nothing excites me more than walking/jogging in the park with some enthusiast outdoor walkers, some with their dogs, too; others with their families & friends. 

Thankful to God for the dense, concise, heartfelt and beautiful creation of the four seasons. Each season carries more than a vestige of a mystical realm of the human heart. However, I tend to unearth Fall's season of revelatory blessings. Oh, how I love the more than exquisite foliage colors. I don't have a precise adjective or verb to explore God's majestic hands except perfection and glorious.

Here I leave you with a golden scripture in the book of Isaiah 55;12 KJV "For ye shall go out with joy, and be led with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

May each one of you delve deep into the God's spiritual rhythm of this season. For me, this season is celebratory.There's a halt in chasing other "stuff." My mindset is fixed in just be in awe of this season's monumental task: the splendor, the breathtaking, intrinsic & heavenly bursts over the landscape but more so, let its joy soak & sustain you at every heartbeat.

"God, The Healer Of All Wounds..."

photo courtesy: FloRamos M's photos

I used to believe that time heals all wounds but apparently, not. We let time run its course--going through the motions without really thinking the fallacy of time healing all wounds.Time just prolongs the agony if not healed by the Healer of all sicknesses, diseases, and brokenness.
When  we negate God's sovereign healing power over all our hurts & pains no matter how deep-seated they are, we are bound to be a slave to hopelessness and a chain of failed maneuvers of our own capacity continues.

Learning to let go bad ruins in our life do not equate to a long period of time. As time passes, our wounds are still scalding from the inside; they still lurk and find their ways to enslave us; to cater to them. We may not be aware of that stronghold because our focus was in the wrong doctrine of faith. All because, stubbornness and pride got stuck in our wicked way of thinking.

So, on this labor day, be good to yourself: labor and invest in the right things; to the right people and to the right Book of instructions, the Book of life...The Holy Bible. We all know that "perilous times" have come. There will be that time which is coming very soon that our Christian right to carry and read the Bible and share the Gospel will be altogether curtailed. That's when this "time" comes in. It's time to do something about time. It's time to proclaim the goodness of God. In Matthew 16;26 says  "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lost his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? The reality of eternal life in heaven and eternal unspeakable suffering in hell is at hand. One more thing to think about: where will you be when the trumpet sounds for Rapture? This, too, is real. It says so in 1Thessalonians 4:17: "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Oh, what a divine promise!

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8 (KJV)
Thanking the Lord for a three-day weekend.

"In Every Thing, Give Thanks To The Lord..." 1Thessalonians 5:18 ( KJV)

Give Thanks

        Outdoor walking/jogging may be just the right thing to do at 7pm before going to" hit the sack." I also take this Melatonin, a 3 mg supplement for supposedly helping you relax and sleep better. Even drinking organic ginger peach tea is in my diet routine. All of these aids you to a better sleep but without the power of prayer and trusting the Lord primarily for all our needs, esp. insomnia, you would still be "counting Sheep..."
Happy labor Day Everyone & May the good Lord blesses you the desires of your heart. But then again, be careful what you wish for. It all comes down to examining inner motives. We all have them-- but some may be more operating on their own external strength and realized later that it doesn't stick.

I thank the Lord of Heaven & Earth, the One who laid it all on Calvary Cross so that we may live victoriously and have eternal life. In 2 Peter 3:9 ( KJV) says that the Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but all should come to repentance.

"I Can Only Hope That Better Days Are Coming..."

September 2015 - Psalm 71:14

Let's face it: 

Scores of us in the thousands are fed up with what is going on in the heartland of America. Had already stopped subscribing to any of the news tv stations. We don't even know how reliable their sources are and how they leave out the important piece of disseminating it to the public. Tired of hearing the phrase "politically correct or incorrect." Or how they only want to air what they think the public wants to know. In this regard, I don't think the newscasters have any inkling what we need to hear. I just want to hear the whole truth of every matter that make us human again and not infusing their hidden agenda. Idon't think these people in the news really knows the heartbeat of journalism. 

I hope and pray with all my heart & mind that every Christ believer and born-again Christians in this country to get on their knees and move God's heart to healing our nation from unbelief, wrong doctrines and dogmas and  from putting our faith in the box. 

Hope is the only thing we can't afford to lose...
May God open the windows of Heaven to pour out greater understanding of His saving grace upon our lives.

"Let The Dead Things Go..."

September 2015 - Let Things Go

My sincere apology for not posting and sharing as often as I should have been writing. There are no legitimate excuses for staying dry and rigid in the mind. Many pondering thoughts flooded my mind and ended up just fragments--broken and sinking words that never put on a page.Now I wonder if I could even call myself a writer when the only commodity to writing is to write every day no matter what the surrounding circumstances are...and failed to do it.

However, that's in the past. I always have Today to recoup my train of thoughts, rediscover who I really am according to the divine grace and power and the love of God for me.
And that is the most important truth that holds true through eternity. You may hear voices in your head telling you hideous things that you've done Yesterday but you can't undo the Past. And you're not Alone...

We've all been there to a point where it got us to taking medications and a lot of praying. Who wouldn't be a part of the statistic of millions suffering from one illness/disease to another? But let me tell you something--it takes a lot of courage and faith to do the right/moral thing on every stance in life. If you have friends and people in your circle that are weighing you down, let them go. Think about it: why are you wasting your time waiting on them to change? You can only be responsible and accountable to your actions. The same principle applies when it comes to your jobs and hobbies--they could become burdensome when you're letting the murmurings cripple you to change course.

Never let fear and unfamiliarity be your crutches. 
It is never too late to let the dead things and people go... in your life. Of course only you who knows the right ones for you; the ones that God  had put in your life for a season and those that will be with you for all seasons.

Happy first day of September!
