|"Don't you want to be a Laida Magtalas someday?" |
my brother 'seriously' asked me
Laida Magtalas version 2.0
I woke up light headed...
still giddy with thoughts from yesterday ...
and the entire week...
I almost fainted in the Church yesterday, it's the first time it has ever happened to me as I already got used to my low blood pressure... and it's the first time I missed a family event in five years that I've been out of the 'walls'...
"I can't come with you," I wistfully told my mom.
My dad drove me home after mass and I slept for three straight hours.
Those hours were the most quiet and relaxing...
I saw how much I was loved by my dad that Sunday. I like those tender moments when I'd really feel 'genuine' caring. It's also the first time I didn't push that love away.
I felt my stubbornness fading away...
The Spirit whispered something about Cory and I prayed for his soul. I was actually crying last night before I slept at ten... listening to Cory's songs and finishing a movie I've been watching the previous nights...
I haven't really been into love stories lately and this 'blessed soul' (thank you!) shared a video that made me curious about it. It made me laugh at the first part and cry at the last scenes (so typical even of Filipino movies).
Here's a quote I lifted from it: "Maybe they haven't seen me through 'your' eyes."
(e.g. Like the way my brother sees me as Laida Magtalas after four years)
Maybe it's time to see people through this 'special lens' ~ now.
I thought, how really short life is ~ and to be alive, today... well, that's really something to be grateful about.
One more day of loving... one more day of seeing our loved ones... one more day of forgiving and being forgiven...

what reward will you get?" ~ Mt. 5,46 NIV
My little niece Audrey and I, 13 July 2013
"There's something different about your posts ~ you're coming out of your shell now," a friend I've been journeying with for over a year and who I've been emailing my posts told me last night.
"You're healed," my soul sister Rimly wrote me...
*After all these years...I received an SMS from the one person I wish to forgive...
and he was the first to say, "I'm sorry..." (assignment from Restoring Broken Relationships with Rick Warren).
*I received my Japan visa for a conference in August (more of this Law of Attraction and Vision Board in my next post~faith and letting God be God).
*I gave away the rice we were supposed to eat to hungry kids...and the next day, the Lord provided us with food more than we could eat (Divine providence and trust).
It's the road I'm still treading ~
it's still a very long way to the heart...
but I know God walks with me all the way.
How about you?
Where are you now in your journey?
joyful...(this song sounds triumphant)
*Of the songs in the movie, I loved this. It takes another meaning in Tamil as a love song... but Hosanna (Aramaic הושע נא ~ save/rescue ) for us is an expression of adoration, praise or JOY!
I Love You Lord... tantissimo!
