The year the answer was right in my hand

We spent a week in exile away from home during the bomb cyclone that had swept through Northeast. With the temperature way below zero in Fahrenheit, it resembled Siberia. It was truly a free visit to Siberian lands. Our well water and pipes froze and we lost power periodically. We left home when the power…

He is Walking with Us

I went to my local parish, to visit the historic chapel to sit in prayer quietly. I had two hours free to myself before I picked up my daughter, and within those two hours, I had to: 1. pick up salt at the grocery market 2. pray. 3. Meet P, my angel sent from God…

Shooting Stars

    I have only moved less than 30 miles, just a short distance away in the neighboring state right across the Potomac river. Because there is no bridge nearby my town, I had to drive almost double the distance. This place feels worlds apart but one thing keeps me connected to my old city…

Hold on tight

I re-read my old post last night to reexamine how far I have come from the inception of my sudden idea planted by myself or by God of which I am still not perfectly sure. It was written on March 12 2013 inspired by Van Gogh-I was reading The Yellow House by Martin Gayford at…

Holy Mary, Mother of God

* * * Before the clock hits 9 o’clock, I hit the bed and close my eyes. I hug my stuffed pink lamb close to my chest. I know I’m too old for this. But hey, I’m just being me. In my ears, Silent Night is sung by Bon Jovi. It’s the one they performed…

In Times of Birth Pangs

  Birth pangs are being felt everywhere. Battles are being fought, and lives are vanishing. The darkest hour has come, and yet, so many are still too blind to recognize the darkness. They cannot tell light from dark. Their days are about to get darker, but having no clue, they run to the darkness. They…

Betrothal Ring

It’s snowing all day trapping everyone inside. I can only stay indoor for so long so I braved the snow for a walk. When the weather is nasty, go to the playground. Your privacy is guaranteed. If it is raining outside, snow storm is sweeping through the town, or below 30  degrees, I can easily…

Cry

* * * “It was there that I realized That forever was in your eyes The moment I saw you cry..” – “Cry”, soundtrack from A Walk to Remember * * * With your agony, suffering, and tears, you can help God collect His dear children. Pray day and night along with the grey monk….

I Am Your God

  The room grows darker, lights off, time to pray. I get up from my seat, to kneel on the ground. When my hands meet each other, the Voice reaches my heart saying, “I am your God.”   Silents prayers are the best. Silent tears even better. I am on fire, my soul taken up…

I Pray

I pray, not for me, but for others. That is enough for me. What is for others is for me, What is for You is for me. I pray, O Lord, not for me, but for others, That is enough for me. For I have the Might One who prays for my soul.
