Prayer to Keep Going.
Dear Father, when the pressure mounts and the troubles of this world begin to close in, give me the grace to return to You.
All I need is your loving mercy.
Never leave me Lord…
Even I don’t feel You there, at least let me understand that you are there.
Give me strength and fight a good fight.
Let your grace allow me to believe in the only one that gives me Truth and Clarity despite the pain and struggle.
And if it be your will, fill my heart and soul with the overwhelming Joy that only your Spirit gives.
For your are my hope, my strength and my refuge.
In Jesus’ name.

Children are not a distraction from more important work, they are the most important work.
It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.
integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching.
There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.
What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth, they share it.
We are what we believe we are.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
Courage, Dear Heart.
He was on his 20’s when my younger brother passed away last February of 2016. It was so sudden that made me re-think of life and our varying purposes. Healing took awhile, getting strength from my family, from my daughter… I realized it is much difficult to write down our feelings when we are lamenting. The intensity of emotions cannot simply be put into words. Tears flow incessantly as my heart was subjected to pains of loss, confusion and sadness.
It’s the thing about writing – you either heal or hurt some more…
And so I can write again, by God’s grace, me and my family gradually began moving on.
I’m sharing these quotes about life and journey. May this be helpful to all of you, especially the ones mourning and downhearted…
To get through the hardest journey,
we need to take only one step at a time,
but we must keep on stepping..
The life of a man is a journey;
a journey that must be traveled,
however bad the roads or accommodation.
On life’s journey
faith is nourishment,
virtuous deeds are a shelter
wisdom is the light by day
and right mindfulness is the protection by night.
If a man lives a pure life,
nothing can destroy him.
I’m deeply reminded that our life’s journey is a gift,
not a given. And that we can never truly know
how long the journey will last.
All we can do is decide how it unfolds.
The beautiful journey of today
can only begin when we learn
to let go of yesterday…
