In Filipino (the language), “mahal”- the word for ‘love’ also means “valuable and or expensive”. changes in pronunciation gives their word usage different meanings. “mamaHAlin” means “expensive or pricey” while “MAmahalin” means “(i) will love”.
"Mura" (moo-ra) means both "cheap or of lower value" and "derogatory/cuss words"
Appropriate synonyms for both words and their respective meanings in my opinion. When you “value” someone, you “Love” them and you “Lower another’s value” when you “curse/cuss” at them.
The hope ready to crown.
I am about to deliver.
I ache for its coming.
My breathing troubled and painful
Like that of a laboring mother who lets out deep exhales.
In unfathomable expectation I prematurely push.
I give way to the daily miracle of having a life grow inside a barren body,
To nurture an unseen child,
To foresee nursing the infant of fulfillment delivered by the midwife of grace.
To summon an unnamed child, bid him to come.
To sing lullabies to him with words which create worlds into being.
I push for a bond long deferred.
But for now all I can do is cradle my crescent womb,
Feel him fill the cavity inside me.
For believing is like conceiving
This child of hope has been given
His face a vision, clear as the first daylight of a newborn.
As for my God,
Father the coming birth of this hope
As I mother the conception of the dream.

the dreams of your heart, if in tune with God’s heart, it shall come true..
and even better , when his heart becomes our heart… Never get tired to shine the way you do.
i remember a whisper in my heart telling me this six years ago and He was right.
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

sometimes we get so caught up in the dark that we get overwhelmed by tiny trickles of light.
Your Love is new every morning.

I was asked, “How’s your love life?” I smiled and replied “silent, but the beautiful thing about that word: it’s letters also spell the word ‘Listen’.
Today, my mentor assigned me to preach on sunday’s 3rd service. I responded with, “Roger that.” :)

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.- calvin coolidge
