To my journal buddies,

It’s kinda weird to have new friends out there but isn’t it amazing that journals connect us? Indeed, God passes us to one another. I knew some of your stories whenever you share your comments and whenever you send me a message and I realized we’re in this together. Perhaps, we just have different pens but we have the same Author. We might be living in different plots, others are in the climax part of their story, while some are in the rising action, maybe others are resolving conflicts, and perhaps some are still meeting new characters, while others are finding the setting of their story, and perhaps few are already in the last page of their story.

I just hope and pray that you find comfort, peace, and safe space here. We’re all under construction- we can’t skip mistakes, failings, and fears at times but may we all be reminded that God can still use our stories. I know I do have many things to learn and unlearn in this life but you never know how much it means to me whenever you read my journals and the fact that you’ve been saving money just to purchase my book and include it to your necessities. I do appreciate all of you but may you always seek Him first and read His Word because it all comes from my quiet moments with Him. I know He will also reveal Himself to you when you seek Him like treasure hidden in a field, like a merchant in a search of fine pearls, and like a net that was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind. Seek Him first.

The new season is unfolding and new path is uncovered. Thank you for allowing these journals to take up space in your souls, into your lives- my journal buddies out there. Warm hugs!

See you soon everyone!

Your journal buddy,

Quiet Walks in Quiet Season

In this season,  I’ve realized it’s okay to outgrow perspectives, dreams, places, and people. It’s okay not to fill the gaps, not to find answers, not to be extraordinary, not to fit in, and not to be in control. And I’ve realized GOD is all I need and I am living because of HIS grace. 

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and enjoying the beauty of life. Writing about life, asking God about “kuliglig sa kanyang dibdib.”
