Write to Write

Okay... so yet again, I decided to write and write and write... whatever thought comes to mind, I should write.. get my creative juices flowing yet again.... It's not as easy or as simple as I wish since I think all the juice has been sipped out of me but I will keep trying, I will keep persevering until this dream of mine finally becomes a reality...

It is only sad though that I feel like the people I love are suffering because of this dream, because of my inactivity, so with the Lord's guidance, grace and mercy, perhaps one day I will finally make this dream of earning from a blog a reality.

I need to get my faculties straight, plan ahead or lest I find myself in a deep hole once more and just a step away from my goal. I want to do this... do this for good...

God help me!

Thoughts on PREX

Last weekend was something...

I joined an PREX seminar - Parish Renewal Experience...Wow! the experience was overwhelming to say the least. It was a roller coaster ride, laughter, tears, sorrow, pain even but at the end of the weekend I feel rejuvenated.

I was hesitant to attend at first, thinking it was another one of those dragging, boring, religious things, but I'm glad that I was proven wrong and I felt a renewed sense of Christianity, something that everybody I think can benefit from. It is a good experience and something I hope to share with my hubby soon.

I discovered a lot of things about myself and some of the people I work with in church. It was enlightening and I gained if only a minute understanding of these people and maybe I can put that to good use when I work with them inside the parish

My Journey in Faith Part 2

Yea, so let's continue...

As I've said, I've altogether stopped praying. I didn't became an atheist or anything like that, but I felt like it was such a burden praying... I was too busy with life to even bother with it. So, I prayed whenever I felt like I needed some help, some answer to a need, but never earnestly and never really seriously.Prayer was just a last resort, somewhere to go to when I feel like there's nothing else to go to, when I think I need a miracle of some sort.

And of course, not all prayers are answered the way we want, so when I don't get what I want, I ask God why He wouldn't give me that particular request, even questioned His existence at one point, or thought that maybe because I'm not as prayerful or as "religious" as some people, my prayers weren't heeded.And that downward spiral just propelled me towards a more unprayerful life, thinking that God only listens to those who are religious, go to church every Sunday and all those sort of things, and boy was I WRONG, OH SO WRONG.

I have learned in the course of this short life that God DOES EXIST. HE IS EVERYWHERE and He listens to every word we utter, especially in prayer, but HE IS ALL KNOWING, ALL POWERFUL AND ALL MERCIFUL. He knows the RIGHT TIME to give us what WE NEED and WHAT WE ACTUALLY NEED, not what we think we need. It's sometimes a difficult concept but I have learned, and I know that God directs us and tries to continually show us the right path, where we should go, what we should do, but sometimes we are too blinded by our own pride, our own desires that we fail to see the LOVE and ABUNDANT LIFE He so earnestly wants for us...

How I came about that realization??? Next on my Journey in Faith... My Journey in Life

Fr. Joel's Foundation - A Legacy To Continue

I have embarked on a new journey with those who loved Fr. Joel to continue his legacy. We are in the process of opening up (if that's the term) a foundation under his name, where we will care for those he cared for. The foundation plans to give out scholarship grants or just a little help to assist students in their studies, as well as promote livelihood programs and continuing education to our needy brethren.

Father Joel has always had a heart for the poor, as I said in a previous post, and we would like to continue his plans, even though he is gone, we want his name to live on and by creating and making the foundation move, hopefully we will be able to do just that

It's a wonderful feeling to know that we will be able to help the poor out and we can continue what Fr. Joel Buenviaje has started. There is a feeling of fear because we don't know how successful we will be, but I am hopeful and and I am confident that the Lord will guide us always and that Fr. is just there, looking down on us and seeing what we are doing will continue to pray for us and for the success of the foundation dedicated to him.
