Papag

Hawak ang kanyang itak sa ibabaw ng papag,
masisilayan mo ang mga matang walang bagabag.
Kahit ilang dekada ng 'di makatayo,
at walang kakayahang lumakad at lumayo.
Mistulang walang poot at ligalig sa kanyang dibdib.

Naninirahan kasama ang mga niyog sa isang liblib.
Iniwan man ng karamihan, 'di pa rin natinag sa gitna ng dilim.
'Di dinalaw ng takot at pangamba sa pag-iisa,
kahit lumubog ang araw at ang ulap maging makulimlim.
Patuloy na nagtiwala kabutihan ay darating.

Tulungan mo akong maging katulad niya,
O kay sarap mabuhay na puno ng pasasalamat
walang galit at poot sa gitna ng pighati,
walang halong inggit kahit nasa laylayan at nahuhuli,
at walang anumang hinaing at daing sa kagipitan.

Sinusulit bawat paghinga.

It's keeping their wisdom and knowledge in life. It's keeping their love for Christ. It's keeping their sweat and tears even if no one appreciates their hard work at times.

When will be my turn?

Trust Him, His grace is enough. You are not hidden, you are seen, forgiven not condemned, valued and cherished not blemished, redeemed and honored not overlooked, pursued and loved by the lovers of souls, covered by His blood and healed in Jesus Name.

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.
