Maybe if we can just utter what's inside our hearts,
it wouldn't hurt that much.

Maybe we don't need to suppress our feelings,
keep it in a box that nobody would know and let it fades.

Maybe we're not brave enough to accept rejections,
thus we can't take risks.

Maybe we're still in the maze, finding the right path,
so we could meet.

Maybe the seed of waiting is not yet ripe
 and rushing yields bittersweet fruit.

Maybe we're a thousand miles away
and it's improbable to walk together.

or maybe it's not worth fighting and pursuing?

I hope we can find the answers 
between our maybes and if not,
just let it be.

Just like the sun's rays penetrate
when the sky is bright.

Just like the rain pour out 
when the sky is bleak.

Just like the trees dance
when the wind blows.


Just like our hearts fit
when our beats meet.

 just let it be.

to be loved like this…

"Oh, to be loved like this! There's nothing left to prove, my dear. He has proven His great love for you from the very beginning - from the manger to the cross, from His crucifixion to His resurrection. You are His and deeply loved! Come back home."

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
