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 🙂


Love …..

“Love is like playing piano, first you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from the heart” – Anonymous

That is right 🙂 … anything plays from the heart is always beautiful that’s what I have experienced.  There are so many rules and regulations and the do’s and the dont’s and the ifs and what not… but when it comes to the most important thing or person in our life, we have to make the decision from the heart because  the heart sees from deep within your soul. In the heart lies the seeds of love ready to be sown and I hope you sow it generously as you will reap lots and lots of love back at ya J

Just remember,  out of the abundance of the heart, the seeds of love will be sown and the words will be spoken kindly 🙂 so follow your heart 🙂

True Love

We are born to Love and be loved – Susy Pujiro

When I hear the words “True Love”, I always think of an old couple walking hand in hand and still have eyes for each other who has weathered the seasons of their lives and still together no matter what.. that’s what I think of true love is.

To me, true love is having a soul mate, confidant, best friend and lover. Someone to love and to hold.  Someone who I am in love with and he is in love with me.  We both can’t be away from each other more than 5 minutes without missing each other. When I think of him, I have butterflies in my stomach and just a thought of him will make me smile, he will know what’s on my mind without me saying a word.  He makes me laugh. He will look at me with such an adoration in his eyes that love just exudes from his eyes that just melts my heart.  He holds me  when we sleep no matter what the temperature is outside.  Even though, he is across the room but I know that he never lets his eyes off me.  Someone who thinks I am worth all the risk he is taking just to be with me.  When I have a bad day, just being in his arms makes me feel safe and I know I will be okay.

Love is simple yet complicated.  Sometimes, you don’t know how love is going to turn.  You can’t force love because  you just fall in love. Love has to be felt with the heart. Love is like the wind, you don’t know when it comes but you can feel it touching you. That’s why when you kiss, you close your eyes because you are feeling it with your heart. You close your eyes when you  cry, because your heart hurts so much that you can’t bear the pain.

You fall in love and you feel you are on top of the world and hoping the love you feel will last into eternity.  Suddenly for no reason, love dies, you break up and your heart is broken.  It hurts so much that you don’t think you can live another day.  Yet, as the day goes with each tear you shed, you feel a bit better and you can survive another hour and as it is said, time is a healer.. yes time is a healer but the scars are still there and sometimes when the scars are not truly healed.. you still feel the pain now and then.

Because of the pain and the broken heart,  you are afraid to love again.  If you do that, you will be missing love.  Love is worth taking the risk to be hurt and got your heart broken, because love is meant to be experienced. We are born to love and be loved. I have been in love, broken hearted and yet I am not afraid to risk being hurt and broken hearted to be with someone I love and experience love again rather not at all.  When you cry because of love, you know you are human and able to love and give.

Sometimes you never know how much you love a person until you let her/him go and you realize you make a mistake of letting go.  So, if you find your true love, hold on to her/him and don’t take them for granted and give God thanks for giving you someone to love and to hold.   Sometimes the best thing in life only happens once and if you are lucky, you will have a second chance.

Through my journey of love, I find there is one true love and that is God’s love that is everlasting and unconditional.  He loves me for who I am with every flaw I have.  He doesn’t judge me.  Because of His love, He even gave His life for me so He could save me.  Now that I have experienced His love and goodness, I will not want to live my life without Him.

Jesus…. Don’t leave earth without Him.

What A Wonderful Christmas :)

Christmas in our home usually starts a night before Christmas with a family dinner and of course the excitements of opening the presents after dinner.  We usually open 1 – 2 gifts and then we leave the rest of the gifts for Christmas morning and not to forget what is in the Christmas stockings.  I usually get up earlier than everyone and start stuffing the stockings.   Then I make a cup of coffee with some Bailey’s and have some quiet time before the Christmas buzz starts again.

My oldest son who is mad at me and skipped the Christmas dinner, came home this morning and join us for Christmas day.  I would admit, Christmas is not complete without him.  As mad as he was, he got me what I wanted for Christmas – scarves 🙂  and exactly what I would have bought.

My second son who is in college, came home and asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told him fuzzy socks.  He told me there is no way, he was going to get me only socks.  In his words, he would not spend more money on his girlfriend and just buy me socks.  He touched my heart so much and I know I have trained him well :)Don’t get me wrong,  He told me what he got her and I am proud of him.

My third son is the sweetest and he has the cutest smile with dimples and big brown eyes. He did not ask me what I wanted but he bought me gifts that made my heart swell and I know he puts thoughts of what to give me.  On top of this, he bought groceries and cooked for the whole family.  He has been watching the Food network on TV and he made everything from scratch.  I am so proud of him.

My daughter who has been quiet about Christmas, finally told me that I deserve something nice because I have been working so hard.  She is a vibrant, beautiful, generous, kindhearted, intelligent girl.  She and her 2nd brother split a gift that is so wonderful for me and cost them a fortune.

This Christmas season has been one miracle after another.  I realize it’s God’s way of letting me know that He sees everything I have gone through and this is His way of blessing me with the restoration of my family and I guess we just add another Christmas tradition whereas my third son will cook on Christmas day 🙂

I look forward to a new year 2014 and excited of what He has for me 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah

No matter what our circumstances are, we are blessed beyond imaginations, knowing this morning we are awake and alive and able to do things by ourselves without any help and any machine are already a huge blessing from God.  Many times we take things for granted and we do not stop to even think of the little things or big things we do until that privilege is taken away from us then we wish we could have it back.

I just found out that we are very blessed to celebrate Thanksgiving and Hanukkah at the same day this year which according to research won’t happen again for another 77,000 years.  In a way, we are a chosen generation, as there are a few events this year that will not repeat for another 100 or 200 years.  Just know, that God plans where you supposed to be, what you supposed to do, who you supposed to be with.  Nothing is a mistake and you are here at the right time and things will start to fall into its place.  Believe and you will see it happen 🙂

As 2014 approaching, I would like to challenge you from today until the end of the year, that you will write a note each day for what you are thankful for the day and put it in the box.  Come, January 1st, you take out the notes and read each one of them.  You will be surprised to see how blessed you are 🙂

As we celebrate Thanksgiving today, I pray you can count all your blessings and be thankful and don’t forget to tell the people you love “I love you” 🙂

Can Money Buy Happiness….?

That is a question that we ask a lot either to ourselves or we ask someone 🙂  Money seems to be the focus in everything we do, think or say whether it’s intentionally or unintentionally.  We go to work everyday to earn a living or money to pay for our living expenses.  We spend more time in earning money and neglect the people who are important to us or things that matter to us.  Money itself is not evil as we need it to live on but the love of money is the root of all evil.  Sometimes, we compromise for the sake of money.

People say money answers to everything and money can buy anything you want including love and happiness. I tend to agree with the statement but the happiness that you buy with money is only temporal as it’s only happiness on the surface. So if you have all the money in the world but yet you are not surrounded by people you love or who loves you for who you truly are, then money means nothing.

I believe happiness should come from within because it will show in all you do 🙂  True happiness is knowing who you are inside that will show in your outer appearance, you feel comfortable in your own skin, to be content with what you have, being with the people you love and doing what you love. Money surely can buy a lot of things but not a true happiness 🙂


Dance, Love, Sing and Live :)

“DANCE as though no one is watching you, LOVE as though you have never been hurt before, SING as though no one can hear you, LIVE as though heaven is on earth” – Anonymous

Even if you say you can’t dance but there is a tune in your heart that you can dance to, if you look deep within your heart and let the little kid in you come out and play
Love… everyone needs love …. and you have tons of love in your heart if you just let it come out from the bottom of your heart, you have lotta love to give so start giving love away and see what comes back your way
Sing a song to yourself, to the birds, to the dogs, even if you can not carry a tune but to God…you have sung him the most beautiful song when you sing and praise him… let the music of your heart be heard even when you hum…
Live to the fullest as today is a gift and we never know what the future brings… seize the moment as it will never come back, take a moment for yourself and just take a deep breath as life is precious and it’s a gift…so don’t take it for granted…

Have a blessed week! and remember SMILE… it’s free but can brighten one’s day
