Sunday Thanksgiving: A Victorious Journey


A milestone was achieved when we have worked together for a common cause; a strategic operation that is mission accomplished. A thousand miles, yet a fulfilled journey. 

It was in year 1998 since it all started when a Divine calling for public service was initiated. My Father was chosen and called to serve the people. At first there was a resistance; a protest due to fear. However in the end, we all agreed and listened to the Divine call. 

As a three-termer legislator, my Father showed courage and perseverance. He may had some fair share of struggles, yet he stood up and fought for the common good. 
He was never frightened to those in the higher authority with the values he uphold and the principles he instilled. 

In 2007, after his 3rd term of public service he went back to business and enjoyed farming as a hobby; a source of joy and serenity. 

In 2013, at the age of 61, he was back in public service and became the head of the Office of Senior Citizen Affairs in our town. 
He advocated for the rights and the benefits of the elderly in collaboration with the Department of Social Welfare and Development. 

On May 14, 2016, after 9 years since his last public service as a Municipal councilor, he decided to make a come back to answer the call of his constituents and on May 15, a day after the midterm election, he was declared for another seat. He actively serve for the interest of the public through local legislations and resolutions that will benefit the general public and uplift the lives of the people. 

On May 13, 2019 Midterm election, my father was declared a winner for his 2nd term. He will continue his public service and speak out and fight for the rights of his constituents. He will continue to be an advocate of our town's agricultural economy and livelihood and will stand up for the welfare of the public transportation sector - - his major committee chairmanship. 


My father is forever thankful to his constituents and to everyone who supported on his political journey. His love of public service remains even when he is not in the position. He speaks loudly on his advocacy and for general services in the community. He is leaving a legacy for his love of the society. He is forever grateful to God for his victory.

Mother's Day Special: A Sweet Embrace



A Mother, more than anyone else is always there to show her love and care to her children. A Mother shows compassion; a tender loving care that nourishes our soul and spirit.

Today as we celebrate Mother's day it reminds us of what we have become due to motherly love and care. As we reminisce our childhood days, our Mother was there to comfort us when we are afraid, to care for us when we are sick and in pain and to push us forward when we are frightened or timid.

Looking back at the past is all about struggles and sacrifices of our Mothers, but looking forward to the future is about higher hopes and positive spirits that we will still feel a sweet embrace a tight hug that symbolizes love.

Today and in the years to come, we may not be together everyday and will be miles away, but the soulful connection binds us together.

Our Mother, the love of our life is the one who let us experience the best life she could offer; the best life forever.

Living in Faith: The Greatest CEO Alive

"Our greatest CEO doesn't fire people, but He is forgiving. He doesn't hate and curse, but He is kind and loving. He is the way the truth and the life. And so when life seems so dark, let us remember that there is one greatest CEO alive who is there  for a rescue. For His love is greater, for He is a true Master."


In our world today, more people are becoming obsessed and are a fan of a grandiose title just like the People magazine's "The sexiest man/woman alive" or the Time magazine's "Most influential People in the world" and the Forbes magazine's "World's Most Powerful CEO" which are quite popular and have a huge followers worldwide.

This obsession with great titles could mean greater power, fame, prestige and authority. It also evokes superiority that sets boundaries in social class and standing; being superior and powerful versus the ordinary and less privileged people.

In our society today, we may idolize someone based on merits that made him superior in many aspects. For instance, one may look up to his own father for being a good provider and leader for the family. Others may have a great admiration and support to their community or religious leaders. For the working people, they may have greatest respect to their CEO or the Chief Executive Officer.

I have worked with several CEOs in my corporate life. They are among the best and the brightest in their industries. They have gained my respect and admiration even though they may have their flaws and different personalities and values that makes them imperfect.


Today, I am working on following with the greatest power, love and light. I am working for the best and the brightest CEO of my life. His personality is beyond excellence. He is a Supreme power; a Divinity.

This ever powerful CEO has died and risen again. He is our Lord, our savior. He is Jesus Christ. He is the Greatest CEO alive. My God, our God.

Jesus works as the greatest CEO who directs us and guides us to the right path. He empowers us, uplifts us and inspires us with his great deeds and miracles.

Jesus our God is working on us, on our family and small community, our country and the world. It is only right that we must also work with Him and follow Him. Jesus is not dead, but He lives in us. His presence is in our hearts, in our mind and our soul.

Our greatest CEO doesn't fire people, but He is forgiving. He doesn't hate and curse, but He is kind and loving. He is the way the truth and the life. And so when life seems so dark, let us remember that there is one greatest CEO alive who is there for a rescue. For His love is greater, for He is our true Master.

The Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Help: Our Love and Devotion


In times of our difficult moments, we always seek for a Divine help; a spiritual intervention that will give us answers to our specific needs. We have our prayers; our personal petitions from God. With humily and faith, we come to the house of God, His church to kneel and offer a prayer.

Today, I chose to travel to a special place of the Mother of God. The National Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, also known as Baclaran church. I have visited the Shrine many times since mid 2000, just the beginning of the new millineum. 

What makes our devotion special is when our Mother took us to the Shrine to pray the novena and to celebrate the mass. Later I have realized that my Mother has a great devotion and faith to the Our Lady of Perpetual Help and with the intervention of Mama Mary, a mission station was built in our hometown in Jamindan, Capiz and was named from the same title of Mary - - Our Lady of Perpetual Help. 

Located in Barangay Linambasan, the mission station of Our Lady of Perpetual Help was elevated to a Parish in the year 2018 with Reverent Father John Denosta as the first ever priest assigned, few months before Reverent Father Jeffrey Estrella took over to continue the religious service to the people. 

Whenever I am in our hometown for a vacation, I visit this peaceful sanctuary to pray for the intervention of Mama Mary. My devotion started because it was our own Mother who led and guided us to come to the Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. My mother has testimonies of the blessings and miracles of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help and she would want us to get dovoted to Mama Mary as our Divine love and light. 

Since then, I have experience peace and serenity and answered prayers which I consider to be a miracle because it was answered at the right time when I almost feel hopeless and desperate. 


Today, the first day of May of 2019 was a blissful experience to be with thousands of devotees who recited the novena and celebrated the mass. There is a Divine presence that keeps us feel embraced and comforted. The solemnity of the eucharist makes us feel strongly connected and our communication feels being heard. 

It is during the silent moment when our hearts could feel and Mama Mary, the Mother of Christ is there for us like our very own Mother who protects and comforts us. 

For today, my petition is for our good health and healing, that God will protect us from sickness and illnesses and heal our physical, mental and emotional discomforts. I believe that we can accomplish whatever we can imagine, with all our energy, only if we are in a better state of health and away from illnesses. This without a doubt, I believe that God will grant though the intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, our Divine Mother.

Today, I am with the Divine and I have prayed for whatever my heart desires. I am forever grateful to Mama Mary and may she always hear and intercede on our prayers to God for our love and devotion is never-ending and an eternal.
