Some things happen to us because we strive hard for them to happen in the first place. But some things do not happen the way we expect them to be.

No matter how hard we try there are things that are meant for others and not for us though we desperately seek for them.

My friends, I have learned in life that we should not let ourselves solely to decide what’s best for us, rather let the Father make the best decision for us.

Even if you have succeeded in life you should not think of it only as a prize for your hardwork or hardships, rather think of it too as a reward from the One who is the most powerful of all.

Whatever you own now, you can lose if God decides it to be.

Even if you do not work hard for some things if God decides that you should have it, He’ll keep it for you.

Making People Happy

Rain_and_min_ah_big_and_cuteThis simple picture was given to me by a friend who I love so much. My friend is just fourteen years old yet she knows how to make other people happy.

What are the things that make us happy?

Simple things like saying , how are you?..have a great day!..good morning!..I’m sorry..are just some of the simple things in life that we appreciate.

Little things such as those mentioned become great because they make us simply happy. True happiness can only be achieved by true love and by simple things.

Jesus-The Giver of Life

st. joseph, pray for me

What can Jesus do that no other human being has done? We all know the answer- it is to give life to a lifeless human being both physically and spiritually. He is truly a giver of life that no one can’t deny.

My friends, let us ask God to light our lives; to help us do good and practice all virtues, so that the light will forever shine and Jesus will be our infinite abode.

Reflections from Imitato Christi

Only one inspired by the spirit of God could draw such a lively picture of eternal life and of temporal life; and make such a just comparison between the infinite good of the future life and the innumerable miseries of the present life. The future glory and happiness should form the sole object of our desires. If it does not, it is an indication that our faith is weak and our love is burning low.


Lessons from Desiderata

Life is not a joke, but some of us have chosen to live it that way.

Everyday should be like a “mortal combat” for we are to fight great temptations that come our way.

Sad to say most of us just let those temptations conquer us…for fame, pride, vanity? Whatever reasons we have, we are losing the battle.

My friends, these are some lines in the poem “Desiderata”

“Avoid loud people for they are vexations to the spirit.”

Loud people teach us dishonesty, vanity, corruption of mind. Things that help us lose the battle.

The One who is the mightiest and the most powerful of all and who has won the battle has taught us honesty, compassion, love. He wants us to join Him in His freedom and triumph.

Reflections from Imitato Christi by Thomas Kempis

We must walk in the presence of God with humility and simplicity, with truth and sincerity. God resists the proud and gives his graces to the humble. We must pray to God not only with our lips, but also with our mind, will, and heart.
