BLESSED BY THE POPE

Groupie with my awkward smile. :)

            The hash tag blessed by the Pope (#BlessedByThePope) was used by many netizens during the Papal visit when they are posting photos with the Pope. This was started by a TV network here in the Philippines. I did not use the hash tag on my posts in my social media accounts but I feel so blessed.

A TALE OF A FOOTBRIDGE AND ON CROSSING STREETS

FOOTBRIDGE
            I remember when I was in Grade One our teacher was very persistent on teaching us on how to cross the street. “As a child if possible you must not be alone whenever crossing the street. If by chance you cannot help but go on your own because everyone is telling you that you are a big girl already, by all means go and cross that street. But I want you to remember that you must: 1. Stop, 2. Look, and 3. Listen. Stop before you take a step on that asphalt road near the waiting shed. Look to your left and to your right if there are cars coming. If you see no cars you must listen because cars are coming when you hear a loud engine sound. It is like brooomm!” She said.

I #BlogWithNuffnang

My 2015 Agenda includes accomplishing my blog plans. Having my own domain is one of them. I must admit, that it is the very least of my priority since I am still unemployed. But on the lighter side of this agenda is that I am starting to save money from my home allowance into the coin bank that I received as a Christmas present.

ENDOWMENT

ENDOWMENT
Wonders of the creation
Full of beauty and imagination
Gift from the heavens above
For His kindness and love

Each has its own beauty and purpose
For our goodness I suppose
So in Him let us be grateful
For making our life colourful

The morning sun that is so bright
Gives warm and delight
The moon and the stars in the evening
Sounds safe and securing

The trees swaying in the air
Give food, beauty and life to bear
The colourful flowers in the garden
Make us smile all of a sudden

Water deities ruled by Neptune
Home of every oceanic creation
Wind that blows every second each days
Utter his gentleness sometimes rudeness

Venomous snake of Africa and Asia
Large aquatic reptile of a tropical area
Possess something beneficial and common
Leathers, made from their skin

And then lives the best endowment
Man – bestowed of various talent
  who care for this wonderful legacy
And gain their beauty
