The Old Lady In The Moon :)

Love eventually will find its way – Susy Pujiro

When I was little, my mother would tell me bedtime stories.  One of the many stories she told me was about the old lady in the moon.  Whenever it was full moon, she would point to the moon and told me there was an old lady living in the moon.  Her job was to tie red string on people’s ankles who supposed to be married but if they go and marry someone else. The string is still there, and eventually they will find each other and marry 🙂

As I grew up, I forgot about the story of the old lady in the moon.  I got married to the love of my life and I thought it would be till death do us part but that was not the case.  What I learned in my journey of love, is that love doesn’t change, meaning of marriage doesn’t change, the vow doesn’t change but people change.  We can not choose to fall in love, we just fall because love is like wind, you don’t know where it comes from but you can feel it touching you.  At any moment, we can choose to fall out of love because we have a change in heart.

I was reminded of the story while I was talking to my friend about relationship 🙂  Something awakened inside my heart that gives me hope.  Yes, I married the love of my life but was he the one with the same red string in his ankle as mine..?

Well.. life definitely is interesting and here I am later in life being reminded of the story that I heard when I was a little girl.  I have hope that the man who has the same red string on his ankle as mine is out there, looking for me and when he finds me.  I will know it in my heart that he is the one 🙂

Dancing In The Rain

The sound of rain is like melody from heaven , and the smell of rain is so refreshing to the soul – Susy Pujiro

One of the fondest memories growing up for me was playing in the rain.  Where I come from, summer can be very hot and humid.  So, whenever we get rain in the summer time, it is like heaven on earth.  My friends and I would get so excited.  I would watch who would be the first to run out of the house to play in the rain.  Then we would all come out and join.  We would run around the neighborhood, going from house to house and just stand under the gutters and let the rain water pour down on us.  We would laugh and twirl under the rain.  We would jump on the puddle and splash, just enjoying the fresh water from heaven.  We felt so free like there was no care in life.. it was so much fun! 🙂

We would play and dance in the rain for about 10 – 20 minutes.  Because after that, the rain felt cold to the body.  There were times we had to cut the play time short because of the lightning and thunder.  We usually tried to play as long as we could but as soon as we heard the biggest thunder roared, we knew we needed to go home.

I would go home and take a shower.  My mother would make me hot chocolate or hot tea with some biscuits.  After the tea or hot chocolate,  I would crawl in bed and listen to the sound of the rain until I fell asleep.  There was something about the raindrops hitting the tiled roof that made the most beautiful melody.  It was like music from heaven.

On one of the trips I made home with my children in the summer time.  It just happened that it rained very hard one afternoon, so I took off and ran in the rain.  My children followed me.  We ran around the neighborhood , going from house to house and standing under the gutter letting the rain water pour down on us, just like when I was little.  We made a beautiful memory. 🙂

Now that I am grown up, I am still excited when it rains.  Speaking of rain, the fresh smell of rain is like none other.  It smells so good, refreshing to the soul.  I still enjoy listening to the sound of rain hitting the roof or windows as I am falling asleep.  There is nothing more beautiful than the sound of rain! 🙂

Who Is God?

God is a touchy subject to discuss as there are a lot of opinions about him.  Some people don’t believe God, some people do.  Some people say He does not exist because we can not see Him, some people believe He exists.

 So, who is God?

 For me personally, God is the creator of heaven and earth.  When I look around me, I am in awe with His creation.  The fish in the sea, the stars in the sky, the moon and the sun, the planets and animals,  the trees and flowers, and not to mention us who is created in His own image.  He created all of these beautiful things for us to enjoy because He loves us.  He is Trinity : The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.  He is lover of my soul, he loves me unconditionally.  He always has His eyes on me all the time, He treasures me and put me in the cup of His hands.  When I think of Him, He makes me smile and my heart swells.  He is the strong tower who gives me shelter when the storm is raging in.  He is the wind beneath my wings so I can fly above the storm of life.  He is the light house that will guide me to safety.  He hides me under His wings to protect me.  He is the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end.  He is a gentleman, He keeps His promises to me.  He is my daddy who loves to bless His little girl with every good gift.  He showers me with His mercy and goodness all the days of my life.

 But you say, how can you say that..? it’s easy..  think of it as dating and falling in love with your girlfriend or boyfriend.  You can not wait to see them, you think of them throughout the day.  You smile when you get the text message.  Your mind is consumed with your lover.  It will be the same way with God 🙂

 God is love.  You can not see what love looks like but you can feel love and you know what love is. You can not see Him with your bare eyes but you can see Him with the eyes of your heart.  You will know Him because you know Him first in your heart 🙂

 Take a moment, close your eyes and think of love.  If you dare, 🙂 take the step to get to know Him and you will be amazed at what Love can do for you 🙂
