C.S. Lewis quotable quotes

From the man behind Chronicles of Narnia – C. S. Lewis, a compilation of my favorite quotes.

Read and be inspired…

To love is to be vulnerable.

Miracles are retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.

We would mind Humiliation less if we were humbler.

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.

Much love,

Pondering through

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.

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..

Chinese Proverb

The life of a man is a journey;

a journey that must be traveled,

however bad the roads or accommodation.

Oliver Goldsmith

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.

Buddha

 

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.

Sonia Choquette

 

The beautiful journey of today

can only begin when we learn

to let go of yesterday…

Dr. S. Maraboli

 

everything Disney

My favorite theme to make in my shop is a Disney inspired customized treat. I made my first “Disney” custom cake which was for my daughter’s birthday, that was also the first time I applied some skills I learned from Wilton school of cake decorating. I finished their courses from basic sugar piping to the more advance fondant and gumpaste class. But, let’s go back to the treats… ofcourse, I didn’t begin as a pro, we all have to start somewhere and that means being an amateur. I was ambitious to create an edible slipper of Cinderella and handling fondant wasn’t that easy. Tropical climate plus high humidity make it more challenging. Yes, I successfully made one, but pardon the lack of photo for evidence. I must have carelessly deleted the photos from my old laptop.

So… I just have to show you my more recent creations. A favorite motif is Mickey Mouse, it’s commissioned a couple of times and even a wedding cake with Mickey and Minnie on it. And then, there’s Elsa and Anna, I was humming “Do you wanna build a snowman?” while finishing these sugar artworks. Plus, my daughter loves Frozen, too.

if you can dream it, you can do it.
