There's no place I'd rather be

In you

In You
there's peace
there's fulness of joy
I have salvation
I am secure.

In you
there's love
I am satisfied
there's rest
I am alive.

There's no other apt response to a God so awesome, but to WORSHIP.

If You Forget Me
~Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

Wait on You

Wait on You
Alarice Thio

I will bless the Lord most high
Who gave me breathe, abundant life.
To Him who sits on the highest throne
I offer my life to You alone.

Let every breath that I breathe be praise.

My God it is You above all else
And Your countenance shines for all.
You are more than enough for this heart of mine
so I wait on You my God.

In quiet surrender this morning here
Your presence near, Your love appears
Holy Spirit let Your fire fall
'Coz I am renewed, I am restored.

Let every breath that I breathe be praise.

My God it is You above all else
And Your countenance shines for all.
You are more than enough for this heart of mine
so I wait on You my God.

And so I wait...

Blissfully Engaged

Yes, I am. :) I still get butterflies in my stomach whenever I remember bits and pieces of memories from last year's THE proposal. It's one of the events that I'll cherish as long as I have breath in me. *plays mushy song here* hihih

Ge, my ex-boyfriend (and now fiance) got down on his knee on the eve of my birthday. With the help of two of our trusted friends, Ge was able to put together a sweet and endearing birthday surprise. "Birthday Surprise? I thought he proposed?" You might ask. Well, watch the video below. :)

Isn't he the sweetest? :) Haaaayyy! Ang sarap panoorin ng paulit-ulit. Kung nasa CD lang 'tong video na 'to malamang gasgas na gasgas na ang CD at nag j-jump jump na ang video. Hihihi. Yes, i've watched it like a bajillion times already and I still feel mushy and I still blurt out giggles na parang may sayad. Hahahahehehehihihihihihihihi. Please pardon my silliness. Hirap i-contain and aking nararamdaman na love. :) Sometimes I even call Gerard just to drop a few pickup lines like "Alam mo para kang chicken rice. Kasi favorite kita!"

Seriously speaking, I am very thankful to God for this privilege of being engaged to a very wonderful guy. I couldn't ask for a better partner. He's down-to-earth (like really humble), family-oriented, loving, sweet, responsible, mature, God-fearing and gwapo! Oha, ako na ang super blessed! Woohooo thank You LORD! You are the greatest!
