I have read a lot of books and readings…I have attended a lot of seminars and conferences…I have listened to a lot of talks and teachings…I have listened to a lot of speakers and preachers…I have meet and observed a lot of people…I have gone and lived to a lot of places…I have listened and sung some songs which brought meaning…I mingled with people good or bad, rich or poor, tall or short…etc…etc…etc…I laughed and cried with them…
Thinking and searching for that thing called WISDOM!!! or is it really WISDOM!!!
Yes… I have been good and I have been bad…
Then it hit ME… a reward intended for a lost SHEEP… it awakes ME for it brought ME to my solitude…for months I have keep myself isolated…Never asking for a helping hand or a shoulder which I could burst myself to cry and lean on…My blanket and my pillow was my witness…The only shield and armor left was my PRAYER, FAITH and the SEED which was long time ago planted in my HEART that was left unnoticed, untrimmed and not properly groomed….
Then it hit ME again…for so long all I was doing was I and ME….I become self-focused…I created a monster which is still ME…
Yes…Great achievements have been done…Noblest works have been accomplished…Life have been changed…Liberation was at hand…etc…etc..etc…
But bottomline was a self-centered I and ME…
Then HE hit me again and again and again…cause in my time of solitude I was also losing my real essence…I keep on falling but HE also keeps ME pulling…I was down and HE keeps ME up…reminding ME that HE was always there all the time…HE was there through the good times and my bad times…HE was the shield and the armor…HE was my blanket and my pillow who comforts ME… HE keeps the rain and sun shines to the good and the bad…For HE made and design everything we see and do not see…from head to toe….from ash to dust…from north to south…from east to west…etc…etc…etc…HE assures and guaranteed us with HIS unfailing and never-ending LOVE…
It was not luck which keep the SEED grow, even it was unnoticed, untrimmed and not properly groomed…for it was HE…
HE just wanted ME to open the real eyes of LOVE, CARE, FAITH, SERVICE…etc…etc…etc…
But where was WISDOM???
I have listened to HIM and the beatings from the bottom of my heart and it says…
" Individual LIFE experiences itself was WISDOM "…
Listened, understand, reflect…etc…etc…etc…with your HEART and your PRAYERS….
GOD BLESS US ALWAYS….

You may not know me,
but I know everything about you.
I know when you sit down and when you rise up.
I am familiar with all your ways.
Even the very hairs on your head are numbered.
For you were made in my image.
In me you live and move and have your being.
For you are my offspring.
I knew you even before you were conceived.
I chose you when I planned creation.
You were not a mistake,
for all your days are written in my book.
I determined the exact time of your birth
and where you would live.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
I knit you together in your mother's womb.
And brought you forth on the day you were born.
I have been misrepresented
by those who don't know me.
I am not distant and angry,
but am the complete expression of love.
1 John 4:16
And it is my desire to lavish my love on you.
1 John 3:1
Simply because you are my child
and I am your Father.
1 John 3:1
I offer you more than your earthly father ever could.
For I am the perfect father.
Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand.
For I am your provider and I meet all your needs.
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope.
Because I love you with an everlasting love.
My thoughts toward you are countless
as the sand on the seashore.
And I rejoice over you with singing.
I will never stop doing good to you.
For you are my treasured possession.
I desire to establish you
with all my heart and all my soul.
And I want to show you great and marvelous things.
If you seek me with all your heart,
you will find me.
Delight in me and I will give you
the desires of your heart.
For it is I who gave you those desires.
I am able to do more for you
than you could possibly imagine.
For I am your greatest encourager.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
I am also the Father who comforts you
in all your troubles.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
When you are brokenhearted,
I am close to you.
As a shepherd carries a lamb,
I have carried you close to my heart.
One day I will wipe away
every tear from your eyes.
And I'll take away all the pain
you have suffered on this earth.
I am your Father, and I love you
even as I love my son, Jesus.
For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed.
He is the exact representation of my being.
He came to demonstrate that I am for you,
not against you.
And to tell you that I am not counting your sins.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
His death was the ultimate expression
of my love for you.
1 John 4:10
I gave up everything I loved
that I might gain your love.
If you receive the gift of my son Jesus,
you receive me.
1 John 2:23
And nothing will ever separate you
from my love again.
Come home and I'll throw the biggest party
heaven has ever seen.
I have always been Father,
and will always be Father.
My question is…
Will you be my child?
Love, Your Dad

Have you ever meet a friend for life…
With the years that I’ve been wandering on this plain that we are in…
I’ve already meet a lot of friends…Some have left and go, some have stayed and I go….
Some have remain still…..Some have been friends since childhood, some have been classmates…
Some were officemates/colleagues/peers/boss/subordinates,
Some were the one you love, Some were the one you’ve hurt….
Some were the one you’ve meet in an organization/community….
Some were your friend’s friend, some were friends by occasion and so on and so forth ( Facebook, friendsters…ha…ha.. ) ….
But do we really have to categorized the value of our friends???
Starting from the highest to the lowest, from being close or being far….
Do we? or Have we thought of it?
Years ago, I was once ask by one of my friends, Whose the best of all my bestfriends?
I can still remember and its still fresh on my mind that I’ve mention a name of one of my bestfriend…..
But as you grow and when you really miss them….
and when you remember some of the things that you’ve done together…happy or sad….
and some of those foolish things…..
You can really begin to fathom the value of friend….
Its not by years that you’ve been together,
Its not by ranking them from 1st to lowest,
Its not by categorizing them….
But for me a friend is a friend when you remember and think of them….
That’s how I value my FRIENDS….
I remember all of you my FRIENDS….
Have you tried remembering your FRIENDS?
Pause for awhile, just some seconds and think of your FRIENDS…
Believe me YOU’LL SMILE and appreciate it…..
