Not All That Glitters Is Gold

I am not a fan of expensive jewelries or anything that glitters. Maybe because….I don’t like attention. I ‘d rather blend in with the crowd, not stood out or be loud or demand attention. I like everything plain and simple. Such is my life… Who wants all the glitters if it’s not real gold? We…

Born For A Purpose

Dear me, It’s Sunday but I opted to stay home today due to not feeling well. I thought I’d write you a letter. Who would have thought that you, the shy-introverted girl would be living 10,000 miles away from home?…… Excerpt from A Letter to my Younger Self; Finding God in the Ordinary Embracing a…

Finding Anchor

“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.” Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr….

In His Likeness

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them Genesis 1:27 ESV God created man and woman in His own image and likeness… When God created man and woman in His own image and likeness, I believe we were born with a…

Joy Bringers

Life consists of many simple and ordinary things. And I find joy in them… As I was getting ready yesterday to help out with our church Barbeque Fundraiser, I glanced at my shoes and somehow the combinations of the shoe color and my leggings brought me joy. Perhaps it’s also the realization that this cleaning…

Living or Existing?

“For some reason, I, all of a sudden, have this unexplained feeling of wanting to travel, live life to the fullest and enjoy life. I am restless…” Sometimes, life gives us unexpected surprises. Surprises that at this particular point in our life, make us see how we’re living it. Or are we just existing? For…

My Easy Is Not Your Easy

Can you believe we are just four days away until we begin the new year? New beginnings. Renewed hope. Greater possibilities. Perhaps, a deeper understanding of pains, failures, disappointment and everything that is not easy. A few weeks ago, I read a post about how people compare our pains to theirs or theirs to others….

Riding Through Life

Nothing is ever too late. I never learned how to bike. My brothers didn’t get their first bike until they were in high school. I tried learning. But then, I was told that biking can take away a girl’s virginity and you know how important that was back then? So I quit. That.. and my…

The Day I Finally Grew Up

“I always thought I was a grown-up. It turned out, being a grown-up requires more than my thoughts that I am one…” I wish I could tell you exactly when that was….or what brought about the change. One day, I just woke up feeling like a different person. It’s that change that kind of slaps…

True Connections

Back when I first joined Facebook nine years ago (I think), I thought it was the best thing that ever happened since the internet. Imagine being able to connect to hundreds, even thousands of people and friends that you haven’t talked to or seen for years. Imagine being able to share photos with family within…
