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! 🙂

Our Christmas Tree is Up

21 more days before Christmas and our tree is up. Here are some of my photos from our tree. I am in love with macro…

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

fall-59

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.
– Edwin Way Teale

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

M.S. River Rouge Cruise

RRcruise09After weeks and weeks of planning, we finally did it. After the disappointing attempt two weeks ago, we finally sailed across the Winnipeg rivers(Assiniboine River and Red River) aboard the M.S. River Rouge. I was extremely excited to take pictures of downtown Winnipeg from the river and here are the results. Also, note that I didn’t bother to take portraits that day because we had lots of portrait pictures from two weeks ago because at that time the diesel engine of the cruise ship was broken and those were the only pictures I could take. Please comment and let me know what you think. Enjoy! 😀
