TIME, TRAITOR OF UNFULFILLED DREAMS

Children want to be teenagers. Teenagers want to be adults. How do we finish understanding such desires?

Our present is a gift we do not value as such. In winter, we will miss the bright sunny days of Summer and, in the Summer, we will miss the snow. I will miss this moment too.

Just like that, we see time passing by while missing the things we want to have. We sacrifice the ones that stayed beside us because we immerse ourselves with sorrow waiting for the unknown. We are longing for what is to come.

What surprises will come with it? We do not know, yet we want to explore the possibilities. The unknown calls us with an aura of mystery. We hope it is as good as the old times.

We do not value the present; we already possess it. It is just not as impressive as we envisioned the future or remembered the past. This thought happens when the time has taken away the endless possibilities we had in our younger days.

Oh! Time. A traitor that left us short of completing our ambitions. If I only knew then, I will have savored each moment of each day just like when I was little and did not count the days.

A SEASON OF HOPE

Beautiful trees show the most beautiful colors red, yellow, orange, and golden browns adorn the scenery. In in my hometown is a season many of us enjoy while embracing the hope for a turn of the page.

It has been quite hard this year that is coming to an end. Although the answers for a solution may be weeks or months away, we hope it does not take all years or many more tears.

A life I only read in history books about plagues that disrupt the standard of life and sometimes take it away is happening in our world. I hope it is not here to stay.

We mourn the lost while praying for their souls. We think about our kids’ future who are missing the joy of school activities and sharing life with their friends.

Oh, Lord! a sign of hope! Let us light a fire in our hearts with fervent prayers. Come back to our lives and show the world you are in charge. We chased you out of the places where we needed your presence, your favor, and your protection. We repent! Will you forgive us and restore our lives once again?

Let us have an open mind to understand your Words. Your message is sounding louder while we are in this mess. May you keep our families and love ones in the palm of your hands and save the world according to your plan.

We trust in you Lord
