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. Else, it may die. Some tips: Not much intstructions on planting. Just bury the seed and keep the soil moist or muddy.  Kangkong grows all year round. Cut maybe an inch or two above the soil for continued regrowth and harvesting. Winter may see your plant dying but often, it regrows by spring. You may fertilize with nitrogen twice a month. You may harvest whole plants at about 1 to 2 months. Kangkong has the tendency to spread. Grow in a container for easy maintenance or harvest whole plants to control your supply.

Bullmastiff: All Wrinkly and Sweet Giant

We have this pet bullmastiff and I’m sure I don’t uniquely feel this way; like other dog owners, I feel our Simba is one of a kind. He has his ways, quirks and all that, which gives him this distinct identity and character. We named him Simba, which means “Lion”. He was an ugly pup. I almost wanted to back out from purchasing him at the kennel. He didn’t look like a regular bullmastiff, no wrinkles, no large frame. He was thin, lean, and all straight and flat. Characteristic of normal Bullmastiffs , he was guarded at first, a bit aloof and doubtful of people and surroundings. It took him over two months to feel more at ease in our home, to freely walk around without being easily spooked, and to trustingly accept our spontaneous pats on his forehead. He wasn’t affectionate for a long time. You would have to initiate physical contact. Many times when we called, he wouldn’t come. And when we approached him, he would move somewhere else. The Bullmastiff is one dog breed you woul

What Does Romans 8:28 Mean About All Things Work Together For Good?

All things work together for good Romans 8:28 is a well-known verse that Christians usually memorize or list down under "God's Promises." It says, "We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God:  those who are called according to His purpose." Is this really a promise from God?
