An iota of dream

My childhood fantasy was amazing,
My mom bought me a nurse doll.
That led me to a school of nursing,
Serving and caring for patients in hospital.

The gift of marriage

Two friends that I treat like my own siblings tied the knot as they made their marriage vows on July 19.

Although we are not related by blood, Rina and Noel Qua, and myself treat one another as family. I am really happy, because it was an answered prayer for me. I was the one who encouraged the new couple to receive the sacrament of matrimony. Although I was unable to witness their vows, I was really happy for them that finally they received the blessing from heaven.

A song of thanksgiving

Thanks for each raindrop that nourish lives.

Thanks for the sunlight that warms us up.

Thanks for our parents who bring us up.

Thanks for all teachers who help us grow.

Thanks for all people who show us God’s love we know.

Thanks for all people who hurt us

We don’t need to be rich before we help

It broke my heart to see the picture and read the story of a seven-year-old little girl who pedaled uphill to help her grandfather sell fruits in Chongqing in South China Morning Post on June 27 this year. It is touching to know about her care for her grandfather at a really young age.

Should Marcos be buried at the Heroes Cemetery?

Marcos is not a hero. He stole many things. He ordered many killings and his henchman killed many people. He had many innocent people imprisoned, snatched, tortured and many women were raped by his soldiers and brutally killed. These are all documented. It is not merely a story made up or a work of the imagination.

How do you feel about the drug killings?

From my point of view, drugs are the number one problem in The Philippines. I feel sorry and numb about the killings. But the fact is, no drug lord has been sentenced or there is not enough evidence to prove their crimes. I just pray for all the victims of killings because we are really not sure if they were guilty or not or if they were really involved in drugs.

The apple of his eye

Friend, you are the apple in his sight,

A true bearer of his own bright light.

Faithfully, you are praying day and night,

Your complete trust in God is his delight.


Rejoice, for today is your special day!

A chosen date by God is your birthday.

Para sa aking mga kababayan

Dahil sa kahirapan at kakulangan ng oportunidad sa sariling bayan, marami sa ating mga kapwa Pilipino ang nangingibang bansa upang manilbihan. Buong tapang na nakikipagsapalaran sa ibang bansa kahit hindi alam kung anong kalagayan ang haharapin at anong pagtrato ang dadanasin sa magiging amo.

Di inaalintana kahit ang sariling kaligtasan at walang kasiguruhan, kahit marami na ang napabalita na naabuso o napagsamantalahan.

God speaks in silence

God speaks in the silence of our heart.

The good news he would like to impart.

To have him in the communion of the heart.

Welcome him and let us have a good start.


Are we aware of God’s presence each day?

If not, start to feel his presence from today.
