Follow your Star

It’s almost Christmas. As we journey through this season of giving, I give you this friendly reminder; follow your star but be mindful of where it ends. All of us has a unique star to follow but it all points to the same destination. Also, just like the three kings, we must remember that we never travel alone. We have our friends and family to ride beside us through the scorching desert and the cold winter nights that we may come across. And of course, we have the star to guide us and lead us to the right direction. But after all the ups and downs of this journey, remember that the star leads us to the reason we celebrate Christmas. No matter what path we take, or how we get there, it ends in the same place. So enjoy this joyous season but remember why we celebrate. Merry Christmas! 🙂

Light a Candle

“Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”

Despite all the darkness in the world, one must never forget that there is a Light that can never be extinguished. No matter how low you are in your life, hold on to God, the light that shows the way we need to follow.

This is my candle offering, for all the victims of natural disasters and the massacre in the Philippines. May God be your Light in this very dark moment. Also, I share this candle to everyone who are in the middle of any crisis. May you find peace in your sufferings.

Autumn in Winnipeg

Change is a measure of time and in the autumn, time seems speeded up. What was is not and never again will be; what is is change.

“Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.”

Gorge Creek Trail

GorgeCreek-1

Here are some of the photos from the gorge creek trail at riding mountain. The experiences we had from the trail was unforgettable. Above is a photo of a mama bear paw. It was really big and there were little ones beside it which we assumed to be baby black bears. It was really a fresh trail when we saw it, we were both amazed and frightened at the same time. Below are some of my macro shots. Please enjoy, comment and rate. Thanks 😀

If you are cold, tea will warm you.  If you are too heated, it will cool you.  If you are depressed, it will cheer you.  If you are excited, it will calm you.  ~Gladstone, 1865

I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours.  But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places.  Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality.  ~H.A. Overstreet

“May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow. May the soft winds freshen your spirit. May the sunshine brighten your heart. May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you, and may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.” –Irish Blessing
