Life is a Journey

journeyI have walked so many roads,
So many paths and thorny trails,
My flesh has bled,
My existence having been weakened.

I have crossed deep rivers
With their vigorous flow,
I cannot fight its current
But I had to pass through.

I have labored under a scorching heat
I thought the sun would never set,
I’ve tasted the sweat of hopelessness,
I’ve broke down with discouragement.

I have climbed hills and mountains
Filled with the harshness of nature,
There were times that I was lost,
So thirsty and exhausted.

I have run through stormy weather
With my strength fighting against the wind,
I’ve been soaked in cold rain
From chill, my hands were shaken.

Yes, I stumbled and fell with fear,
Yet I rise with courage and dignity
With faith in me believing,
Hopes abound in my future journey.

Breaking Free – Summer Fun For Kids

Hey Moms and Dads out there! Our favorite season especially for the moms is here (**insert my excited face here**) ! yay for summer! that means, longer sleeping hours for us AND more fun activities for the kids! I know a lot of parents are looking for summer activities their kids can do that will not only take away their boredom from staying home that long but at the same time further enrich them as young individuals. How about a week-long activity that would direct them towards a Godly path? Sounds good to me!

If you are a parent of a 4-12 year old kid(s) I am inviting you or should I say highly recommending to you let your kids enjoy a DVBS (Daily Vacation Bible School) activity this summer. The church where my family go to worship is holding a DVBS this year and is themed “NxtGen Summer Fun 2015 – Breaking Free“. It’s going to be a week full of fun (arts, games, bible stories, and enrichment through a small group discussion) and learning.

Second Time In Cadayonan – Besigan

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it. – Proverbs 3:27

I am blessed to be a part of one blogging organization who does not only aim to uphold our  city in the world wide web but also gives emphasis on social responsibilities. Last December (yes! this is a long overdue post), CDOBloggers, Inc. ones again went to the City’s farthest baranggay (Besigan) to hold a Christmas Outreach to the pupils of Cadayonan Elementary School. This is the organization’s second time to visit the place and we are glad to see that the school has improved a lot since our last visit. From 2 almost make-shift classrooms, now to 2 buildings of 2 classrooms each plus comfort rooms at the back. I am personally so happy to see the newly constructed classrooms as it means the children will remain dry and can continue with their classes even when it’s pouring outside (which normally happens almost everyday in Cadayonan-Besigan).

I would like to share some of the photos taken during our visit.

This outreach is also extra special to me because my eldest son decided to go with the group to help us with the outreach program. This trip made him appreciate more the things that he have.

besigan-goingMike, Irene, Ruby, Jenjacqs, Germz, Edu, Me, Micah and NJ braved the stiff and super rough road going to Cadayonan Elementary School in the spirit of giving. Made ourselves comfortable at the back of this truck (not really the cleanest so we had to settle sitting on a used tarpaulin and empty boxes of cartoons and braced ourselves for the 2 and a half hour rough ride to make it in one piece) Thank you to the CDO City Engineers office for the ride.
