Here for a bit but will leave you with this wonderful quote...  sent to me by my good friend Mr. Quote Man as usual. This  one I like very much.............. to quote

Prayers & Seeds are similar in nature.
Both have nothing Within,
but have the potential of creating Everything
-- (Unknown)


The seeds of every good action will bear fruit that's for sure. Sometimes long after when you can't be there to enjoy or relish full satisfaction and glory over a job well done for self or for others. Keep planting the seeds of good anyway. Nothing escapes the watchful eyes and heart of God.

Prayers definitely create that which you with your puny human strength cannot. Prayers bring into play great and greater possibilities and potential you never would have dreamed of in the least. Prayers awesomely make the Divine Power reachable to your feeble tiny human grasp and understanding. Blessed is the man or woman who prays.

Enjoy your vacation but squeeze-in time to remember the reason why we have the Holy Week. Blessings to you all. May the blessings of the Lenten Season be upon you and your loved ones.

"The beauty you  see around you is a reflection of the person you are.
The good you find in others is in you too." 
-- (Unknown)   

To a dear friend who thinks that she's good for nothing and yet has this wonderful ability to see beauty in mother nature, in the innocence of a newborn baby's smile, in the soothing sounds of song, in the gentleness of another person's heart....   I say this holds up a mirror to who you are. Be blessed and stay blessed. God sees the beauty in you.

Back from my early morning walk I went straight to my tiny patch of a garden. Looking at how the weeds were having a huge holiday camping in and round it I decided to end their pleasure with a pair of garden shears. Straight to the task I went about snipping here and there. I was pretty hard into the chore when a friend from another street who looked like she was also into her routine morning walk came by with a pleasant greeting. Glancing up I nodded with a smile. This led her to stop (Good Lord!) for a chit-chat much to my annoyance, disguised irritation. But it was such a lovely morning to even try to be ‘mean’. Yet looking down at my work I saw that I was only about two-thirds done with my weed-destruction mission and Old Sol was getting hot. I was faced with a dilemma.... be honest with being annoyed... or be kind. Yeah you guessed right... a little bit of kindness won’t hurt. So I turned towards her with ‘Musta?’ (How are you?)

She smiled even bigger with ‘Ganda ng araw noh?’ (Lovely day, isn’t it?)

To which I replied ‘Ay sobra!’ (Indeed it is!)

‘Wag lang umulan’ came her reply. (Hope it doesn’t rain)

She continued....‘Hay naku, maglalaba pa naman ako mamya. Kainis noh kapag ayun may sampay ka tapos biglang bumuhos ang ulan’   (Gosh, I intend to do the laundry later. It would really suck when you have hung up the laundry to dry and then the rain pours.)

I looked up to the clear blue skies with nary a cloud in sight and said.. ‘Maganda ang sikat ng araw, sapat yan para matuyo ang mga nilabhan mo maghapon.’   (The sun’s shining brightly enough to dry your clothes the rest of the day.)

‘Sana...’ she sighed. (I hope so...)

To this I said with a smile ... ‘Naku kung ganyan ang iniisip mo eh di simulan mo na siguro...’ (If that’s how you think about it, why don’t you get started then...)

If that was a disguised push for her to leave, I agree. I simply can’t stand negativity from anyone, especially if it stands to ruin a lovely day for me. And if she can’t appreciate a simple blessing as a wonderful day, there’s nothing much I can do about that but I hope she gets to understand what she’s missing.

When you’re having a lovely moment or day, enjoy it for what it is. Savor it.... the place, the people, the sights and sounds of it, and more. Don’t let anyone or anything take you away from such pleasure or delight. Neither should you allow any hint of negativity ever to douse your precious experience. Negativity is a joy-killer.

We live for the moments of our lives. A brightly shining morning sun, the soothing calm of a clear blue sky, the whirl of the wind, a baby’s angelic smile, the loving look in your lover’s eyes, a promotion at work, an unexpected fortune, a wedding or a baptism of a child, and even the falling of soft rain on your face. Wondrous moments of pure joy, of awesome discoveries, of intense living, of blessed experiences, of eureka moments, and of freeing your light to shine through and out to the world.

Think positive, think life, think blessing. And remember to thank God for it all. Oh yes indeed!!

Blessings, everyone! Have a nice weekend up ahead.
