Love Your Enemies, Stop Wishing Them Dead

Before, I used to "kill" my enemies in my dreams and thoughts. As if it'll make any difference, I did it every single day until the anger faded. After all, since no one gets jailed doing this, why not sleep and repeat? I know what you're thinking. I don't have a criminal mind either. When …

Bible Devotion: Celebrating 4th of July and My Birthday With Psalms 20:4

I am past that stage in my life when all I would ever care about for my birthdays are celebrations and gifts. Yes, it could and will always be fun to be showered by gifts and be remembered by people. However, it wasn't as of a big deal now as it was before. Throughout the …

Bible Devotion: You Harvest What You Plant

This bible verse reminds me so much of Karma. Indeed, when you plant hate, you get the same. When you plant trickery, selfishness, and injustice, prepare to reap them, perhaps, even sevenfold. I have no plans of planting anything else than love, faith, and goodness. It may be hard, I know, but I'm sure that …

Bible Devotion: I Rest My Case Before God

In times like this, I allow myself to be limited by my humanity, making myself the Enemy's prey. But …

Nothing is Impossible

Almost three days ago, I had a bad case of infectious diarrhea. But funny how, I call it "bad case" and the adjective has nothing to do with the illness per se. Modesty aside, I am not the type that is threatened easily by diseases. Perhaps, this is because I am a nurse by profession; …

Things Happen For a Reason, They Say…

It was not until four years after I graduated from nursing school and passed the Philippine Licensure Exam that I took up law. I have always wanted to do it since I was little. So, imagine the heartbreak I got when my mom and dad, including most of my aunts and uncles, insisted that I …

Assortative Mating: Why People Insist I and My Boyfriend Will Pass As Siblings or Fraternal Twins

Two years ago, I and Jumel worked in the same office as defense analysts/researchers for one of the agencies of the Philippine Government. During my first week of work, as I was having a conversation with one of our office's employees, everyone's welcoming me as Jumel's sister. Yeah, SISTER. I can't help but laugh and …
