When I was in grade school, I remember this advertisement in TV about a ballpen that has a good quality ink and can last a long time in writing.

A couple of years ago, prior to being married, when blogging was the most “in” thing, I started writing in a free website. The contents of my blog are mostly personal just like this one. The only difference is that back then I only wrote to share my experiences, my opinions without particular goal in mind – just to have myself heard.

Almost five years ago, I felt the nudge to write again but this time the goal was to share my experiences as to how I always get to “meet” GOD in everything I do everyday. Another three years past and I was able to subscribe to a paid website to reserve the blog name I have in mind – Passionalism.

For nearly two years the website subscription was dormant as I am having trouble how to squeeze in writing while holding a full time job and attending to my domestic roles (being a wife, a child to my parents, a sister to my siblings, an aunt, a trainor, a mentor, colleague and a friend).

Year 2020 came in and then we were hit by a global pandemic wherein majority of people undergo a lot of challenges and struggles – both personal and professional. Nearly all of us are in emotional state as we don’t know what the future would bring. I had to feed myself with GOD’s word by reading the Bible, having morning devotionals, praying at night, attending online mass, watching Pastor’s sermon on TV and a lot of things ecumenical to strengthen my spirituality.

Around this time, I felt the urge to materialize Passionalism and so by October I was able to start writing again. I was thinking that nobody would read this blog ‘coz they might find that the articles are a little bit old fashioned since I make it a point to put Bible verses on each articles that I write.

I was really surprised when I started receiving comments, as I am still holding a full time job, a lot of times, I have to delay reading and reviewing each comments. I thank GOD and all of you that you find my writing relatable. I apologized if I am not able to reply to your comments as I am still finding the perfect balance to do this passion of mine while attending to my full time job and to my domestic roles which I mentioned above.

I am still a neophyte blogger as I stopped writing for nearly half a decade. What sustains me to continue doing this passion is that I always pray to GOD to guide me as to what articles I should write and I also pray that it would always bring people back to him. Though I am still far from that, I pray that like the Kilometrico ballpen that we had during our grade school days, I will be able to write finely in the future and last a long time.

After all, my goal here is to share my experiences as to how I always get to “meet” GOD in everything I do everyday.

May GOD bless us all.

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” – 1 Timothy 6:12 ESV

If the shoe fits

My Husband and I recently celebrated our wedding anniversary. Looking back, Never had I imagine that I will be his wife. But GOD has a special way of unifying two different people to create a beautiful music together.

I remember making a mental list of an ideal guy I wanted to marry wayback in high school days – asking GOD for the one that fits that description; and for a sign through a dream that the one that I’ve been waiting for has arrived.

As I reminisce, we’ve been a couple nearly five years before we tie the knot. Prior to that event, I dreamt of my husband (who was my boyfriend then) giving me the one thing that I asked GOD for as a sign that he will be the one that I will be marrying.

A couple of days after that dream, I mentally access the traits of my boyfriend versus the list of qualities of the guy that I asked GOD for as the one that I would be marrying and surprise! My then boyfriend (who is my husband now) fits the list perfectly!

Not only that, I had a conversation with him regarding the dream that I had previously without going to the exact details. And…another surprise! As he told me he had the same dream during that night and mentioned the exact thing he gave me on that dream, the sign that I was asking GOD for years ago for the guy that is meant to be my spouse.

Funny and incredible, huh? I must say we really are meant for each other.

Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”Genesis 2:18

“Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”Matthew 19:4-6

Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called Woman,
because she was taken out of Man.

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.Genesis 2:23-24
