June 17, 2015. About 8 AM after I finished my daily quiet time and Bible meditation, I opened my planner and took out my pen. Instinctively, I began writing bullet points of the activities I planned on accomplishing that day. Cook lunch. Exercise. Cook dinner. Short prayer time. BLOG! Clean Mom's bathroom.

I apologize, again, because I shall postpone that short but meaningful post for tomorrow and update you on what's happening, or should I say, wrestling, in my life right now. … Continue reading Heart Struggles
It wasn't too long ago when I first watched Sound of Music. My Dad bought a DVD of the said film and told me I should watch it because it was a classic. Without completely understanding what a classic movie is, I obeyed. After being completely engrossed with the Von Trapp family and Fraulein Maria … Continue reading Sembreak Part 1: Classic Boracay Vacay
