Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story

I took this photo whilst waiting for my ride to the famous island of Bohol, Philippines this year. These inspiring blind men played in harmony serenading the tourists.

This photo isn't mine. Got glued to it one day while browsing through my Facebook page. I've heard of this before happening in the Philippine provinces. When I saw it, I was like the doubting Thomas.

Turning 30!

I’m turning 30 in a couple of hours, and honestly I am panicking!!!

What is life beyond 29?

All I know is that I’m getting old, and that I’m suppose to embrace a life of adulthood, where everything is about maturity, and grace, stability, and so on and so forth. The expectation list could go on endlessly actually.

I tried ‘googling’ life @ 30 to check whether or not it is normal for me to feel this way. Turns out, I’m not alone. 🙂

I decided to take some time to process my emotions, and I realized that I’m having mixed feelings about this whole 30th birthday of mine. Whilst I’m anxious about life after 20’s, I’m also actually happy and elated looking back at the memorable things that happened in my life. I mean, for me it’s still surreal to be at the very spot in life where I am at the moment. I did always give my best — one of the things I learned from the Jesuits — but I’d be lying if I’d say that it was all hard-work. I must say that I was greatly blessed, and I owe it all to Him who is watching from up above.

I’ve decided to dedicate this post to Him in thanksgiving for the many blessings He has gifted me.

Lord, you’ve made feel Your presence today
despite my sinfulness,
my arrogance,
selfishness,
my worldly desires.

I was unworthy,
yet You came.
I was empty,
and You filled me.
I was lonely,
and You gave me comfort.
I was lost,
and You gave me light.

I cried, Lord, when You said:

“I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus.” John 17:23
“He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you.” Romans 8:31
“And to tell you that I am not counting your sins.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-19
“Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-19
“His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you.” 1 John 4:10
“I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love.” Romans 8:31-32

How great is Your love, Lord!
How wonderful!
“What am I that You should love me
and hold me as Your dearest love of all?”

Thank you, Lord.
Thank you.
Thank you for Your great love and mercy.
Know that I love You too…

Mama

To all the mothers… Here’s a song originally composed for you.
Happy Mother’s Day!

No words can describe you
I’m so blessed to have you
Hard working, full of energy,
You’re always there to care for me
And love me, no matter what

Mama, I miss you everyday of my life
But my thoughts of you I’ve kept
They are always in my heart
And I’m never far from home
You and me, friends forever

Chorus:
Mama, you are the true meaning of perfection
Mama, you are my light in this world
Mama, you are my hero, my strength, and my will
I love you
Yes, I do

I used to think that you don’t understand me at all
Neglecting me,
Disregarding me and my wishes
But you’ve seen past all that
And touched me deep down inside
Mama, you showed me the way

Chorus:
Mama, you are the true meaning of perfection
Mama, you are my light in this world
Mama, you are my hero, my strength, and my will
I love you
Yes, I do

Bridge:
I was mean
I was selfish
I was full of imperfections
But Mama, how can you love me this way?

Chorus:
Mama, you are the true meaning of perfection
Mama, you are my light in this world
Mama, you are my hero, my strength, and my will
I love you
Yes, I do
