5 Years in Consecrated Life

I almost forgot an important event in my life. It was May 15, 2012 when I, along with 10 companions, had our habit-taking and consecration to Mary. I don’t have a copy of my prayer when I consecrated myself to Mary. All I ask our Good Mother is to journey with me by “holding my hand”. I have to search my archived photos just to see what happened that day. I was offline for more than a year that year except the final Sunday of the month where we were given a chance to use the computer and internet for an hour. If you look at my blog post archives, I think I wrote about that too. Anyway, when I had the chance to log in to my Facebook, I changed my profile picture with me wearing my new soutane only to be received with shocked or/and amused friends with me wearing eyeglasses and smiling broadly. Yeah, that was the year when I started wearing spectacles.

2012 was such a memorable year to me and I think I need to write more about that time when I spent two years in the novitiate.

I am thinking of buying a basic phone to spend less time with my smartphone with battery problems. Besides, my Notebook PC is a basic laptop. This is for me to write more, read more, and spend more time in silence.

I am just happy I made it this far in my religious life. I almost quit that year. I’ve been thinking lately about that decision when I hesitated to start religious life.

Maybe people had prayed for me and my vocation. I am thankful for them.

And maybe Mama Mary is still holding my hand. And I still pray for her to hold my hand and let her lead me to her Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

5th Year Blog Anniversary

Whoa! This deserves celebration. With this reason, I reward myself of watching One Piece series though I’m still on the 130th episode. So far, I’m liking it. I’m not that much blogging but at least posting one entry wouldn’t hurt me. I have a journal to write on so that really bother me. The Holy Spirit had been very much inspiring me though my writings aren’t that inspiring. Geez. All right, this is enough. May the Lord bless us always. Amen.

Readers and WordPress, Salamat (Thanks)

4 years of blogging now. I still remember January 2011 when I am…

  1. Struggling what to write
  2. Posting about anything
  3. Writing “for practice blogging purposes only”

Now that I am a 4 year-old WordPress-er, I would like to thank the readers whom I don’t know personally… yet.

I know it might sound creepy but I would like to meet you guys in person. I’m not a native English speaker but I will try to (struggle) understanding you talk when we finally meet. I want to know your stories offline.

Where? I don’t know. Meet me here in the Philippines or when I go to your country, send me a PM in the Contact form and I’ll try to ask Google on what place where we’ll meet.

It might happen or not and I’m just wishfully thinking it will.

And finally, thank you WordPress and I hope you’ll stay online a hundred more years or more!

Maraming salamat po!
