His eyes, bleary and tired
He closed them once to find
For a while some peace
Away from hustles and hurries
He opened them, only to see,
“Oh, I have missed
My most awaited trip!”
He cried, and did he mourn hard!
But the city wind whispered,
“Boy, wait you must,
And worry you must not.
It may be a trip not meant
For you to grasp and take.”
His eyes, once bleary and tried
He kept them open, he realized
“I have learned, faith we must;
Things happen accordingly
To those who believe and trust.”
For the past few days, rain has been the constant company of us, Filipinos. Cups of coffee and greetings of concern give warm to our households.

May He keep us all safe!
“You will kneel in awesome wonder when you read the Bible through,” says Bro. Eli Soriano, a man who has always been adamant in encouraging the people in reading the Holy Scriptures and translating into actions God’s teachings written on it.
It is a habit that has been long ignored, if not forgotten. But hey, why not give it a try? After all, it is the best-selling book of all time! 🙂
