I am sorry to all my friends who have been faithfully patronizing my blog through their visits and through the wonderful comments they always leave behind. Be assured that I treasured them all and I regarded you all as my most cherished friends. But I have to declare an indefinite blog holiday because of fortuitous events that have been happening and may about to happen to my life.

As of the moment, there is a super typhoon that was forecasted to pass through our province. The biggest dam in our province has already spilled their excess water and half of our province have already been inundated in floodwaters. The super typhoon was forecasted to pass by our province within two days. To those who were with me since four months ago, they were aware of the devastating flood that swept through our house and devastated all our material belongings. To make matters worse, I have been suffering from severe scoliosis on my lower back and acute hernia
in my gut that prevented me from going out of our house for more than one month now. The pain is so excruciating that I find it almost impossible to sleep peacefully.

I leave everything to the grace and mercy of my God. He will deliver me from all these trials and burdens in my life. To all who need my prayers, be assured that I will continue praying for you and I will appreciate it very much if you can also pray for me.

Thank you very much for your faithful patronage of my blog. I hope that when I come back, you will still be there to visit me and leave your wonderful comments. They have been a source of so much inspiration to me. I love you all with the love of the Lord. God bless you all and have a peaceful and pleasant day to everybody.

Thanks for posting, is very good. You are Master. Thank you.

Bayang magiliw
Perlas ng Silanganan,
Alab ng puso,
Sa dibdib mo'y buhay.

Lupang Hinirang,
Duyan ka ng magiting,
Sa manlulupig,
Di ka pasisiil.

Sa dagat at bundok,
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw,
May dilag ang tula
At awit sa paglayang minamahal.

Ang kislap ng watawat mo'y
Tagumpay na nagniningning,
Ang bituin at araw niya
Kailan pa ma'y di magdidilim.

Lupa ng araw, ng luwalhati't pagsinta,
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo;
Aming ligaya, na pag may mang-aapi
Ang mamatay nang dahil sa iyo.

Have a good weekend

You know Mel, I was thinking to pray before I read you pray for us and we pray for you.

Be sure I'll be praying until you're back and safe.

And thanks for your comments about my dreams, I really appreciate them.

Big greetings and big hugs

Sweet Dreams, from the bottom of my Heart:
