Beautiful Winter in Bavaria

The sun is shining outside.
But I still remember the last beautiful winter,
When the surroundings were all white and snowy.
But I am very glad and thankful,
That spring time finally came,
And soon lovely summer too!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

taken on our way to Neuschwanstein castle in Schwangau, Bavaria, Germany last January 2011. I love this scenery but but happy that we are having sunshine at the moment.

Goden October is Here

Another season of the year is here!
The Autumn in golden October
Colorful surroundings you see
from yellow to red, brown and orange too.
It is simply the golden October
which makes a beautiful season of the year!

-Ruby Benz

This is the road where I always drive especially when I go for grocery shopping.
The beauty of golden October is truly amazing!

Strength of a Man, Beauty of a Woman

It's afternoon now in our place. I am finally sitting in front of my computer. I was very busy this morning during some errands. I have to go the bank for some transaction, dropped a mail in the post office, started cleaning my car to get ready for the inspection of the renewal of its registration on Friday. I am still not done cleaning it because the rain start dropping. I decided to go inside the house and cook for lunch. I am happy because I had eaten my simple but delicious lunch.

As I opened my mailbox, I read about the forwarded email of my sister from Las Vegas. I decided to post it in this site to share this beautiful words about the true beauty of a man and woman..seems interesting but these are truly wonderful words...here it is!
I hope that we are trying to keep the real beauty in us! I always try! Have a wonderful day to all!

Strength of a Man

The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders.
It is seen in the width of his arms that encircle you.
The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
It is in the gentle words he whispers..
The strength of a man isn't how many buddies he has.
It is how good a buddy he is with his kids.
The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
It is in how respected he is at home.
The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits..
It is in how tender he touches.
The strength of a man isn't how many women he's Loved by.
It is in can he be true to one woman.
The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
It is in the burdens he can understand and overcome.

Beauty of a Woman

The beauty of a woman
Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure she carries,
Or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman
Must be seen from her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman
Is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman
Is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
The beauty of a woman
With passing years-only grows.

Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,
but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man.

Birthdays Greeting to My Dear Mama

I want to extend my birthday greetings
and wishes to my one and only dearest Mother!
I wish you all the best things in life
and most of all good health always!
Have a blessed and happy birthday!!
I Love You Mama!
God bless you always!

If I could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me.
If I could give you sapphires
for each truth you’ve helped me see.
If I could give you rubies
for the heartache that you’ve known
If I could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you’ve shown.
Then you’ll have a treasure, mother,
that would mount up to the skies
That would almost match
the sparkle in your kind and loving eyes.
But I have no pearls, no diamonds,
As I’m sure you’re well aware
So I’ll give you gifts more precious
My devotion, love and care.

With all my love
on your birthday

Desiderata

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

–>

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.


Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.


Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.


Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.


Strive to be happy.

p.s. i have been searching for this..finally i found it..i just simply love the text here!!!hope you too!!

"NOT YET"

"I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster,
plans to bring about the future you hope for." Jr 29:11


"Not Yet"

Sometimes I ask the question, "My Lord, is this your will?"
It's then I hear you answer me, "My Precious Child... be still."

Sometimes I feel frustrated, cause I think I know what's best.
It's then I hear you say to me, "My Busy Child... just rest"

Sometimes I feel so lonely and I think I'd like a mate.
Your still small voice gets oh so clear and says, "My Child... please wait"

"I know the plans I have for you, the wondrous things you'll see;
If you can just be patient, Child, and put your trust in me.

I've plans to draw you closer. I've plans to help you grow.
There's much I do you cannot see
and much you do not know.

But know This, Child... I LOVE YOU. You are Precious unto Me.
Before I formed you in the womb, I planned your destiny.

I've something very special I hope for you to learn.
The gifts I wish to give to you are gifts you cannot earn.

They come without a price tag, but not without a cost;
at Calvary, I gave My Son, so You would not be lost.

Rest Child, and do not weary of doing what is good.
I promise I'll come back for you just like I said I would.

Your name is written on my palm, I never could forget;
Therefore, do not be discouraged when my answer is... "Not Yet"

d best time is aLways God's time..

They will soar on wings like eagles.

They will run and not go weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Life is So Short

I woke up yesterday morning having something in my mind. I got some words that I wanted to write. It just suddenly came out of my mind. This words turned into writing a poem yesterday morning. I love composing poems, even writing my own sayings or quotations that serve as a lesson especially if something happens in my life that worthy of making as a reminder or instruction that a certain bad experience won't happen again.

I have not written it here in my blog yesterday because I was still thinking of its title. Finally today, I got a title for it...here it is....

LIFE IS SO SHORT...

Life is so beautiful.
Life is so wonderful.
Don't give up on it.
It's the greatest gift of all.

Too many trials and problems.
Too many predicaments.
But in the course of time.
It shall be put to end.

Life maybe short or long.
For everyone who comes along.
In this complicated world.
Where all people belong.

Whatever you think and do.
Enjoy life to the fullest.
Living its peak to the highest.
So in the end, you obtain happiness.

Christmas in the Dust

I had no Christmas spirit
when I breathed a weary sigh,
And looked across the table
where the bills were piled too high.

The laundry wasn't finished
and the car I had to fix,
My stocks were down another point,
the Dolphins lost by six.

And so with only minutes
till my son got home from school
I gave up on the drudgery
and grabbed a wooden stool.

The burdens that I carried
were about all that I could take,
And so I flipped the TV on
to catch a little break.

I came upon a desert scene
in shades of tan and rust,
No snowflakes hung upon the wind,
just clouds of swirling dust.

And where the reindeer should have stood
before a laden sleigh,
Eight Hummers ran a column
right behind an M1A.

A group of boys walked past the tank,
not one was past his teens.
Their eyes were hard as polished flint,
their faces drawn and lean.

They walked the street in armor
with their rifles shouldered tight,
Their dearest wish for Christmas,
just to have a silent night.

Other soldiers gathered,
hunkered down against the wind,
To share a scrap of mail and dreams
of going home again.

There wasn't much at all
to put their lonely hearts at ease,
They had no Christmas turkey,
just a pack of MREs.

They didn't have a garland
or a stocking I could see,
They didn't need an ornament
they lacked a Christmas Tree.

They didn't have a present
even though it was tradition,
the only boxes I could see
were labeled "ammunition."

I felt a little tug
and found my son now by my side,
He asked me what it was I feared,
and why it was I cried.

I swept him up into my arms
and held him oh so near
and kissed him on the forehead
as I whispered in his ear.

There's nothing wrong my little son,
for safe we sleep tonight,
Our heroes stand on foreign land
to give us all the right,

To worry on the things in life
that mean nothing at all,
Instead of wondering if we
will be the next to fall.

He looked at me as children do
and said it's always right,
to thank the ones who help us
and perhaps that we should write.

And so we pushed aside the bills
and sat to draft a note,
to thank the many far from home,
and this is what we wrote:

God Bless You all and keep you safe,
and speed your way back home.
Remember that we love you so,
and that you're not alone.

The gift you give you share with all,
a present every day,
You give the gift of liberty
and that we can't repay.

A POEM...FOR SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL


I have a small notebook where I usually wrote quotes and sayings that I like. Everytime I read a good one, I write it down immediately. As I was looking for some nice sayings, I was able to find a poem that I wrote four years ago. This was the time, that I was still in the Philippines and was waiting for my visa going to Germany. I even don't have a title for it. I love writing poems too and making quotes of my own. I want to share it with you now. This is dedicated to my one and only understanding, supportive and ever-loving best friend, my beloved husband...here it is!!! Now I am giving below it's title.


FOR MY SPECIAL SOMEONE

Kind gentleman, that's who you are.
Who always listen when I'm despair,
Who is always there in time of sorrow and laughter..
And I thanked God for being there.

Loving you is all that I wanted.
With all my heart, soul and mind
You're all that I loved and even trusted,
Hope it will last and we'll never be apart.

After sometimes of waiting too long.
I know we will be together..
Spending and sharing life forever..
I'm sure you're my beloved one and dear.

Unusual things happened since I met you.
You paint my world and give color too..
You're the song that I sing..
I know and feel you're my everything.

So now I'm missing you.
Sometimes I don't know what to do..
But I know and believe that someday..
Only God will make for us the way.
