Just Green.

As much as I want to satisfy my feet’s itchiness to hop on board and travel again, I just can’t afford to ask my mom to pay for my traveling expenses. I really miss traveling. I miss the skies, the mountains, the seas, the GREENERY.

I  am so  craving/wanting to hike in Mt. Batulao for months now and see this creation with my own eyes.

Mt. Batulao

My last travel outside Manila, I think, was last March 2012 in our 3-day Bicol trip  visiting Legazpi, Donsol, and Naga. Six months had gone so fast and I could feel that nature is indeed calling me.

Yesterday as I woke up, I was unconsciously reflecting how I miss the greenery when I turn myself into green in itself.

Look at me, a woman in green in the greens. As I was walking along Madrigal Business Park, I simply say, “Oops! I belong!” 

A walk in the Park.

Because seeing the greenery is my Passion, why not turn it something into my Fashion at least I can say I am a walking nature. Be your own nature.


Nature is in Me.

Who says I need to have money and plane tickets to see the greenery?

Its just inside the city, in a car park but it is still green. There are trees, and it really feels that it is a different part of the nature. So foresty, so magical.


Indeed, all things that God created is good, and I’m just so into God’s wonderful creations and that includes loving nature and myself, thanking God for His goodness and greatness in my life and in everything around me.

At the end of the day, it will never be about the creation but with the Creator. My beauty will fade and nature can be destroyed, but His love never fails and His faithfulness endures.

Thank you very much girls for making me feel nature just by looking at myself.



Chapter 16

15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

This is one of the last words of Jesus to His disciples before He left for heaven. He said Go! as a follower of Jesus, I should also go not just to my comfort zone or to the people I know, but He said Go to all the world and preach. Right at this very moment that I am writing this journal, my mom is talking at  my back saying that I should go and accept a job offer in Singapore. I really don’t want to go and live my brothers here, I said to my mom that I will think about it. But with Jesus’ command, I know I should not think about it, I should go where He leads me to proclaim His good news.

Lord, I pray that You will lead me to the place where You really want me to be and that may I gain obedience to take the steps that You direct me. Lord, I know Your words are the light unto my feet and a lamp unto my path; and as I delight in Your words Oh Father, I know I will never be lost as I go out into the world preaching your word. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.


Why God?

Chapter 15

34 And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”)

Have I ever feel that God forsaken me? Yes, there are times; and in here Jesus asked God the same way the Psalmist David (Psalm 22) asked God why did God forsakes him. I feel so guilty, for I know Jesus have suffered because of me. Does God really forsakes me? I’m sure a loving God won’t ever forsake His people. He sacrificed His son and forsake Him because He loves me. This is how God loves me  that no matter what situation I am in, He will never leave me nor forsake me that He will send His beloved son just to save me again and again – this is unfailing love.

Lord, I know my thank You will never be enough to say how grateful I am for Your love that You give Your own son, Jesus, to die instead of me. Lord, thank You for saving me and for not forsaking me. I love you. Amen.
