Few days ago, our house went to a not-so major makeover - we just finish repainting our yard. And now, we fall in love with its new look that we spend breakfast and even dinner there. The colors make it look as if it was new, though our house has been with us for almost … Continue reading Repaint
Hi! It has been more than 2 months since I wrote. I was actually going to write last December, but I got too scared and prideful to open up of my struggles within. No one ever said this journey will be easy. If we are to look at our lives on a different view, I … Continue reading Take Heart
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." - Ecclesiastes 3:1 Here in the Philippines we only have two seasons: dry and wet.

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,whenever you face trials of many kinds" - James 1:2 When we are found deep within the season of testing, we tend to question God's goodness - that if He is really good, why is there suffering, pain, and hurt?
