Love: Blind or Superficial?

To be able to see the defects and still love regardless of these, is a love that isn’t blind but not superficial.

Following Your Steps

What better steps to follow than His?


The Road Less Traveled

Along the road less traveled

A visitor walks a life unravels

Along the road less traveled

There aren’t many stops but there are plenty battles

Along the road less traveled

Forget photo ops, there’re no fairy tales and castles

Along the road less traveled

There’s plenty of headaches, heartaches, and hassles

Along the road less traveled

One may lose priceless possessions

Along the road less traveled

One may find moments of depression

But the road less traveled

Will teach many valuable lessons

And the road less traveled

Has many hidden blessings

For those willing to walk down the road less traveled.


To My Child

Dear child, why are you so sad?
What has your spirit so low?
Why do you roam about like a hopeless nomad?
Like there’s nowhere you’re welcomed, nowhere to go?

Why are your eyes pools for bitter tears?
To what or to whom have you lost your joy?
Have you finally made reality of your fears?
Is that quarter smile your best attempt at a decoy?

Lift your head, dear child
Don’t let another’s dark cloud dampen your bright future
Let your heart’s broken vase be beguiled
Heal your tired soul with hope, let that be your heart’s suture

Take the stones they threw at you to build bridges
Take their challenges as steps to climb higher
Fill your head with knowledge and culture, let those be your riches
Release your imagination and creativity like a spark that turns into a wildfire

If your head is down, let it be to admire the heights you’ve reached but not to self-glorify
If you’re on the ground, let it be because you’re catapulting others, but please don’t stay
If your smile is broken, let it be as a result of a laugh and not because of a cry
If you’re humbled, let it be your own act of humility, don’t let pride lead you astray

Oh, my dear if only you knew your worth
Capable of much ingenious that which your mind could birth
More precious than any stone man could unearth

Oh, if you understood how valuable you are
People try to stop you because they fear you’ll go far
Make distance from them like a spacebar
Live a full life made for a best-selling memoir

Raise your glass to your troubles, cheers for what’s to come
Plant hope in the lives of others like you have a green thumb
Always be a dreamer, don’t you dare let your ideas go numb
Fall down, get up, work hard, look up, should constantly be rule of thumb

Dear child, light up your face and be glad
Let your spirit shine aglow
Get ready to soar, today is your launch pad
Be great and spread greatness wherever you go.

Love Each Other

These past days as I’ve spent time in The Word, I’ve noticed the same message time and time again; Love one another. A friend and I were recently discussing what the word meant to us, among my replies was this:

Love is an action word and John 1:1 says that the Word was with God and the Word was God. To love is to show, not just verbally express it. Time and time again The Word tells us to love our neighbor, and this is easy if our neighbor is our friend, but what about when it isn’t? Do we only love when it’s easy? If I am to love my neighbor as I love myself, then do I stop loving myself just because I don’t agree with my neighbor? Isn’t it just easier to be Christ-like? Let’s not love only when it’s easy, but also when it’s easier to walk away than do the right thing.

This is the message you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another. (1 John 3:11 NLT)

Forward Always

In Spanish there’s a saying: “Don’t go back, not even to gain momentum”. The past is called that for a reason, because it passed. We can learn from it, all while making sure not to go back. I recall a series where the protagonist would say “Forward always, backwards never”. Let’s focus on the wonderful things The Creator has authored into our future. 

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead… (Philippians 3:13 NLT)
