Impress

We all want to look good in the eyes of other people.  There’s a saying “First impression last forever.”  We do it all the time even though we’re not aware of it.  At work, in your church, among your peers or your siblings, your family, social gatherings, meeting people the first time, school and lastly the one that you can’t […]

Hustle and Bustle

It’s good to be back home.  For the past few weeks my daughter and I spent vacation in Los Angeles.  It’s been twenty-two years since my last visit there. As soon as we step out of the airport it was a bit of shock to me, how crowded and horrible the traffic.  It’s an introvert’s nightmare.  It felt like that […]

Delayed and Annoyed

A lot of people are traveling to take advantage of the summer as it comes to its end.  Whether by train, driving, or flying nothing is annoying than hearing the news that your flight is delayed, more so when you get the message at the last-minute.  That is exactly what happened to us a few days ago.  We were driving […]

Burned Once. Burn Twice?

This past week I was bombarded with friends and co-workers trying to hook me up with a lady that recently started at my work.  “Why don’t you go out with her, she’s single.   We just want you to be happy.”  Then the teasing follows, “Oh you look good together.”  To make it even more interesting, this lady that they’re trying […]

I’m Divorce So I’m Hopeless and Unhappy?

Ever since I got divorce I’ve always been ask if I already found a girlfriend.  Both off and on work even on social media. Sometimes I get tired of hearing it and I do understand what my friends and family are doing for me and I appreciate that they care about my happiness. For those who is going through divorce and just got divorce.  There’s hope for you.  I don’t have a magic pill that I could give you to take the pain away.  Neither a time machine for you to go back in time so that you could change things.  Nor a helmet you could put on your head so that you could wipe those memories that are too painful to bear.  What I do have is my own experience and by sharing it, I hope that it would encourage you because I’ve been there too. Take your time grieving, do not rush it.  Never ever get into relationships – not until you’re fully healed and if you insist, I’ll tell you this it’ll be your first biggest mistake. What you’re doing is finding someone to fill that void and emptiness which makes you very vulnerable and some people will take advantage of that leaving you hurt again. If you have to cry, cry your heart out, it applies to men as well, there’s no shame to that.  It proves that your human as everyone else.  Do not rush […]

The Short Stick

In this post I’ll be talking about a controversial subject, tithing.  I’ve heard all the arguments on both sides. I am writing this not to incite division or confusion.  I’ve been pondering and praying about it for two weeks whether I should go on ahead.  I didn’t want to write about it, I don’t like to talk about subjects that’s […]

Foolish Love

“You know what your problem is?  You are too nice!”  I often hear that more than enough from friends, families and associates especially the time when my  past marriage was on its downward spiral.  Like a plane without a pilot plunging towards the bottom of the sea, or a ship without its skipper running aground and hitting a big rock.  […]

On Top of the World

This morning I went grocery shopping.  I rode my bike instead of using my car.  Where I live is mostly rolling hills, sometimes it takes a lot of pedaling to reach at the top, while going down doesn’t take any effort at all.  While pedaling up hill in the sweltering heat with the extra weight from the groceries I bought, […]
