Alone

Shutting my eyes, sensing the melancholic stillness gripping the place,
I could hear silence and this thought starts racing to nothing.
I am thinking what the Heaven looks like, to feel an angel’s embrace,
let me hear the sound of the golden trumpet and the bells ringing.

As the wind flows through my veins, this sorrow marches out of the way,
there’s a spark of hope, I feel a river moving in my soul, a relief.
His wisdom speaks, a gentle voice that says, be calm, don’t be dismayed.
A rare quiet moment alone, thanking ABOVE, it eases the pain and grief.

Taken from our place *hometown (personally captured) last March it’s a mountain resort, such a beautiful place to visit, so refreshing, I sat there for hours and just savored the moment alone…

Dear Jesus……(Send our love to Raik)

🌹❤️🌹

How’s our dear  “brave little soldier” up  there in Heaven?,
an angel, our guardian with a halo and two golden wings,
Laughing, giggling, plays around, I know he’s happy again,
no more pain, he’s with YOU now, heart rejoices, sings.

Countless rainy days, summer passed, nothing’s change,
my star, a precious gem, one could ever blessed with.
That very day I heard his first cry, joy couldn’t be replaced,
beautiful memories; like his first walk, my heart bleeds.

Boy with an extraordinary kindness, goodness in his hand,
with strength, love, hope in heart as he embraced his fate.
His beautiful soul inspires and the broken spirits he mended,
we saw the world through his eyes, pure, real and great.

We miss him so much, if we could only hug him just now,
to wish him today, to see him again blowing a blue cake.
Tell him, we love him deeply, forever we will  make a vow,
far yet so close, love stays, a promise will never break.

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN OUR ANGEL RAIK❤️

We love you so dearly…our dogs; your dogs are wagging their tails to send you their love as well..Keep watching over us.

My Wishes and Dreams

image

 

In peace, staring at the milion stars, lies my very heart,
looking for ones that appear the brightest, my wishes.
Putting my soul into, to believe, this plays the big part,
even how long I walk just to cross a thousand bridges.

The shimmering light be my lead, remind me each night,
and an angel to watch, I’m praying not to leave my side.
Touch my hand, lift my faith, let my dream hold me tight,
I will never never give up, God and Heaven be my guide.

Your Journey…My Words….

image

Do feel and listen to what it really says,
a loud thumping sound of a horse’s hoof.
Continous, running, a story that plays,
a fast beat, till it screams to wall and roof.

Whisper it to Heaven, tell all your fears,
It shed the rays of grace, breathe, be still.
It will embrace you, wipe all your tears.
God’s comfort, His hands you would feel.

Soul will be lifted, new song will be sung,
you will hear angel’s hum inside your heart.
Don’t give up, hear it from my own tongue,
been there, just stay, wait and never depart.

My List Of Things

*********************************

I am now starting filling up another blank page,
Give more love, fear less and continue to dream.

As the Heaven reminds me to keep up good deeds,
and be grateful enough even for little blessings.

I must add more faith and patience in every storm,
God will be my light and guide, my burning torch.

In each tick of the clock, I will make the most of it,
to bring more beauty, share goodness, hope to see.

A Candle That Burns

candle_burng

I sit and gaze upon the light from a candle that burns
whispering a prayer, “Can you let my angel hold my hand?”
Scent of his love lingers, his voice echoes in my head,
How painful the seconds, every minute, and days can be,
to walk in an empty road alone full of his memories.
Oh God how much this heart misses him, it’s like a flame,
please send my deepest love, till that day I will see him.

Along Our Way

One message God’s want to convey,
our faith and trust we must take.
Life’s road’s may be steep and rough,
just follow His trail and be tough.
There’ll be tears and pain along the way
he will cover us through these rain.
His invisible hands to lead and guide,
in our trip ahead, He’ll stay beside.

“The Gifts And Blessings”- The Beauty Around Us

image

I’ve washed that dish a million times! My kitchen sink seems like a hole that I keep falling and can’t escape from. I wonder how many spoons and forks I’ve washed in the last ten years? And the laundry basket. It’s perpetually full! I’ll bet I could go to the dryer anytime, day or night, and find at least ten ragged towels, six wrinkled shiets, and twenty three socks, five of each have no mate. Who cares?    – taken from Janice Kempe inspirational article.

________________________________________________________________

Some people are naturally positive and optimistic, whereas others tend to see the world in a more negative light and always think the glass is half-empty. It’s a reality we complain most of the time, everyday we grumble even without realizing it, the little things that normally happen to us like being stuck in a traffic jam or being turned down for a job, housechores needed to be done or in the middle of a busy hour in the office, battling the deadlines and yet so many phone calls distracting us. When my son died, it’ s not all about the grieving and the sadness, it taught  me to value more each little things, the every moment with friends and family while I’m still here. So much beauty in the world waiting to be appreciated and noticed, just being alive alone is something to be grateful with, we still have the chance to fulfill our dreams, enjoy each God’s blessings and  gifts with our friends and family, the things around us; new clothes, new gadgets, or by helping needy people through charity events. It’s up to us now 🙂

Silence In The Rain

image

I never heard this silence quite this loud,
even I’m in middle of a noisy crowd.
I can see hearts have been deeply broken,
tears keep falling, words left unspoken.
They cannot get rid of all the anger inside
bitterness eaten their soul, peace died.
Don’t know what’s their life story all about,
I know there’s God who heals, no doubt.

I myself has a story to tell, pain to share…and faith to say I  do believe….

“Koi” of life

image

I don’t hear any sound, a word nor phrase
but your grace speak out loud, it tells-
Living can be that simple, no dream to chase,
go with the flow, where real peace dwells.

Time is not necessary, you just let days go by,
seems that God telling me the same thing,
how to take things easy as He control and supply,
if we only let Him lead and do the swimming.

This pond of Koi  beside our church mesmerizes me each time. Looking at those Koi, it’s just awesome, it teaches me something..

My Forever….

image

I write each bitter sweet memories in sky,
keep pain inside, but in every moment I die.
Your every thoughts are engraved deep down,
your name echoes here, a heavenly sound.
But I’m turning the page now, start a new story,
I’m asking God  to guide, teach and lead me.
Strength as I move my hand,  even this heart still,
in my every emptiness , only you can fill.
Forever an inspiration, my love , a hero in real

Purpose

image

Life moves fast in a blink of an eye, things change,
we pray, we hope but God’s plan will prevail.
We may not understand, His purpose seems strange,
we’ll be shaken, dragged, we may feel..”I failed”
Keep the faith, hold His hand, be strong and keep trying,
His purpose.. “I’ll reveal in my time, keep trusting”

Our Guardian Angels

“Have you ever considered that, just perhaps, the reason you have gotten as far as you have is because of the invisible work of anonymous angels?     -Gary Kinnaman

loonapix_13861446732790015753________________________________________________________________

Some may fail to notice signs that Angels from Heaven really do exist.  I believe and I know they’re everywhere watching over us to guide, to comfort and to heal. My mom said, my own guardian angel had helped me a lot of times before, she shared one story, when I was around 11 months old,  I was playing one afternoon in our living room. My nanny then was carrying a pile of dirty laundry heading towards the stairs to the basement and my mom not too far away from me didn’t notice I followed Tita Lucy (my nanny). All of a sudden my mom heard a loud bang, I fell down the stairs and it was too late for mom to grab me but to her surprised,  I safely landed in an ironing board. I was fine, wasn’t even crying, no fracture, not even a bruise or anything. It was really my angel who saved me and I know she/he still with me now.

Arrrrrrgh STRESS!

loonapix_13831218342995225693

Stress is becoming an almost inescapable part of modern life-almost. We’re under pressure at work, at home, pressure to succeed, pressure to provide for the family, pressure to be a good parent, pressure from every side, so often we just don’t know how to cope,  what can we do?  Let me share some tips I read…

  • Pray. Make a quiet time with God a daily habit, even just to whisper a short one.
  • Laugh
  • Allow extra time to do things and to get to places if we can get a chance.
  • Pace ourselves. Spread our big changes and difficult projects over time, when possible; don’t lump the hard things all together.
  • Concentrate on things we have direct control over ourselves and our habits rather than on things that we have little or no control over.
  • Get organized so everything has its place.
  • Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a valid concern, find out what God would have we do about it. If we’re worried about something that we can’t or shouldn’t do anything about, then put it in HIS hands.
  • Take one day at a time.
  • Carry God’s word with us to read while waiting or during spare moments.
  • Slow down.
  • Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a hearty “Thank you, God”
  • Don’t take on new work until we have taken care of timely matters that are still pending.
  • Having problems? Talk to God on the spot, we have a free line to heaven anytime. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don’t wait until it’s time to go to bed to try and pray.
  • Remind ourselves that we are not the general manager of the universe.
  • Get enough exercise.
  • Simplify and declutter our lives.
  • Every night before bed, think of at least one thing we’re grateful for that day that came out.
  • Develop  a forgiving attitude If we can, most people are doing the best they can.
  • Be kind to unkind people, they probably need it the most.
  • Eat right.
  • Thank God for what’s coming, because He won’t send us anything that we and He can’t handle together < He can be our  counselor, coach, business manager, executive secretary, personal trainer, confidant and best friend.

To contend with the stress that has become part of modern living. God is all we need…..

I Saw..

loonapix_1382105391807858132

I saw a dim of light that hid
underneath gray clouds.
Promise that holds, speaks,
a hope behind any doubts.
Saw this flower, been ages,
hadn’t seen it in full bloom.
Can be a thing worth to wait,
it will come anytime soon.
Saw a star shone distinctively,
separately,  brightest star
Thinking the one I know
watching me here from afar.

Total Healing

We all have certain life dramas hidden inside, most of it are just too bitter, sad,  painful to remember and think, how much more to say and share. Only God can give total healing I believe, not any person or circumstance. Sometimes, it will take time but we will all get there definitely…..

A PRESENT HELP

<Weekly Reflection-Prayer Poetry>

We deny it. We fake it. We mask it.  We try to ignore it. But the truth, stubbornly persist-we are weak creatures! Being sinful, we fail. Being prone to sickness, we hurt. Being mortal , we ultimately die. Pressure wear on us. Anxiety gives us ulcers. People intimidate us. Criticism offends us. Disease scares us. Death haunt us.

How can we continue  to grow in this bag of bone, covered with weaknesses too numerous too mention? We need a big dose of Psalm 46; ” God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” What hope for those struggling through the grind of personal weaknesses!

~Charles Swindoll

Dear Jesus,
We know we have so much limitations,
Struggle with individual weaknesses,
experience feelings of inadequacy,
lack skills, abilities wish we always have,
consistently brave, strong and tough.
But in some difficult circumstance,
Let us know, you’re the “greatest” helper,
wiser and stronger, loving than anyone.
Show us how to cultivate habit of seeking
help from you, to always experience
moments when you come to our rescue.

Amen.

GOD KNOWS OUR LIMITS

<Weekly Reflection-Prayer Poetry>

Our Lord understands our limits. He realizes our struggles. He knows how much pressure we can take. He knows what measures of grace and mercy and strength we’ll require. He knows how we’re put together.
Frankly, His expectations are not nearly as unrealistic as ours. When we don’t live up to the agenda we have set, we feel like He is going to dump our truckload of judgement on us. But that will not happen. So why do we fear it could?

~Charles Swindoll

God Almighty,
In each passing year with our limitations,
we now more aware,
not just physical but emotional.
that leave us feeling drained and empty.
In your great wisdom you allow each one
to have weaknesses, not to discourage
but to help realize the utter need that last.
For it is in weakness, your strength shines
in our every rough times.

Amen.

FREE OF STRESS

<Weekly Reflection-Prayer Poetry>

You and I could name things, specific things that we’ve gone through in the last several years that make no logical sense whatsoever…But let me assure you, God is at work doing His mysterious plan (mysterious to us), which defies human logic. So quit trying to make it humanly logical. Trust Him….
Do you realize what a peaceful life you can live if you decide to live like this? Do you realized how relaxed you can be, how free of stress? Honestly. It’s so helpful for me to remind myself: He is the One who is unfathomable. He is unsearchable. I’m neither.

~Charles Swindoll

Lord God,

We ask the gift
of eternal perspective.
We allowed the cares
of this world
to cloud our minds
Steal the joy,
from our hearts
With your guiding help
we can rise above
Give us peace,
free from stress
that only you can give..

Amen

Realize

Let me share this wonderful poem I read this morning written by Susan Lenzkes, this applies to me now.. it’s about believing with the heart and to believe with the heart means to believe apart from what our ourselves may tell us or what our  senses may reveal and the only wisest approach for us to be able to learn is to seek for God’s  wisdom. Believing on something with the heart is about trusting God’s power  that He’s the one working behind the scene, putting everything in place for good.

Have a blessed day 🙂

When a message from God
would clear up confusion,
He could write on my wall-
or give the illusion.
But the writing that’s there,
it’s plain to be seen,
is a simple crayon drawing
that I’ve yet to clean

Lord help me to learn
I won’t be receiving
a miraculous sign
wrought through believing;
when each day I can see
and yet don’t apply
Your message looking at me
straight in the eye.

SIMPLY AND SILENTLY

<Weekly Reflection-Prayer Poetry>

Spend a full day in quietness. Sundays are great days to do that. Set aside at least part of the afternoon to be completely quiet. Meditation is a lost art  in this modern , hurry-up world. I suggest you revive it. Not by endlessly repeating  some mantra  to get into some other frame of mind. Not that. Simply  and silently wait  before your faithful God. Read a passage of Scripture, perhaps psalm and let it speak. Say nothing, Just sit silently. Let Him talk. Let Him reassure you that you are fully  and completely forgiven and that your shame is gone. Feel His arms reach around you…Feel again the freshness and relief of His presence.

~Charles Swindoll

_______________________________________

Lord,

We admit  that we struggle to be  still and quiet.
We throw out  complaints, rush on with our day.
Help us to prepare ourselves to hear you  speak.
Teach us to silently meditate,  listen as we seek.
Help us to believe that we  will  now hear you-
and ready our hearts to hear you speak to us too.
Amen.

Recipe for Life

FOR TROUBLED MIND

When trouble sets in,
pressures get closer,
Take a cup of patience,
slice of understanding
sprinkled with humor.
together, mixing it over.
Thing’s gonna be okay!

FOR WORRIED MIND

If too much worries gets you down
A quart of faith, spoons of hope,
blend all together with calmness,
think God’s word and promises
bake with trust, all clear in flash!

NOTE:

Measure everything carefully,
season all  to taste with spice of life
Serve with  God’s Love..

________________________________________________

  Every morning when  I get up, I  do always watch Asian food Channel for an hour or two.  I just love food,  I love cooking. It’s fun to see colors of  vegetables and meat mixed up, added with variety of ingredients, spices etc.  Our souls  as well need daily food just as much our bodies.  Two easy recipes for soul 😉

.A blessed day! 🙂

Today

You wake up , glance at the clock  ,  it’s still  early then  you tell yourself , “go back to sleep” ,  but thinking of  all  “must-do’s”  and should-do’s  race through your mind, how will you greet the day? … An  early prayer then after, a  cup of  coffee while reading  or checking  good stuff   to read  like I did earlier?…. I  enjoyed browsing and reading  blogs this morning.

Most of us have forgotten  how to greet the day. The knowledge is all but lost to us that a new day is sacred: a gift from God, a rare and precious gift. A new day brings with it another opportunity to start all over , to raise one’s head  from the pillow with a glad heart, to watch the clouds  roll across the dark sky. We must learn  to not ever take for granted, no matter how pain-filled  our life-that we are live and the earth still turn on its axis.

My clock tick,
I can see sun now speak.
had my prayer,
fave coffee to start the day..

What lies today,
entrust it to Savior’s care.
Wisdom we ask,
a strong deep faith to last…

Each day, a God’s gift,
hug it , time is too swift
I’m in hurry, must go now
Such a busy day, so”Ciao”

My Dreams

loonapix_13770420233096674650 (1)

You were my best buddy,
some years back.
together we chased thoughts,
around the clock.
Colored butterflies flying over,
the  mustard fields.
Streams below rainbow falls,
splendidly flow.
We didn’t part even just once,
my ever flaming light.
Anywhere, everywhere  I go,
a  twin shadow behind.
Seasons change,
you were slowly dimishing,
Surrounded by doubts,
I can see you now leaving.
My dreams don’t go,
I come to God, fervently asking.

~Nodz
