Devotional: Behold My Father

"And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, and revealed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account." Hebrews 4:12
I often make my life about me, but it's not. Days are filled with all I perceive I need to do- to have; and the Great Father, my Creator, God, and Master is oftentimes forgotten, set aside, ignored. I forget that this All-Powerful being is real and I am ever before Him. Though He could have ignored, forgotten me, and set me aside, He never did and His perfect love and Character NEVER DOES.

Today I praise my Maker and My Savior who never loves me the way I love Him back. HE is and does always much more.

 Today, I Behold this great God, my Father, who David knew pretty well...
"O Lord, You have searched me thoroughly and have known me.
You know my entire life and everything I do. 
You understand my thoughts from afar and are intimately acquainted with all my ways. Even before my word is spoken, Lord, You know it all. This infinite knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is above me, I cannot reach it.
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence?
Wherever I may be, Whatever I do,You are there; When I awake, I am still with You. 

Even darkness is not dark to You and conceals nothing from You,
You formed my innermost parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all already written
The days that were appointed for me."  Psalm 139

Container Gardening: Planting KangKong in Pots (Water Spinach)

Kang kong is a well-known leafy vegetable used in many Philippine dishes. It is quite easy to grow they say. There was a time when you can find kangkong patches on most streets in the neighborhood. It is also called water spinach or swamp cabbage. It thrives in wet, moist areas. Many grow it solely in water. It quickly grows under sunny spots but carers should keep the soil moist.

What is Forgiveness?

Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. (Marianne Williamson) What is Forgiveness? When you've forgiven, is everything just lost and forgotten? Like a memory wiped off, the incident and the feelings that go with are never to return? The offense and hurt never happened? No traumatic, hurtful event took place? There's no history because no such thing took place? Is that what forgiveness is? Each of us deals with pain and offenses in different ways and in our own unique ways. At times, our journeys sort of connect and merge with others. At other times, we may handle the hurt in ways that are uncommon with other people. It may even seem like we're the only one who's facing that kind of experience and the way we resolve things may come off as strange for others around us. Across age groups, genders, and cultures, for
