Do You Have an Empty Well?


When the Well Goes Dry

So many times my well is dry - I can't count.
This is how I refill it. By the Love of My Father.

Sometimes we feel empty with nothing left inside.
We try numerous things to keep our sanity and pride.
We try buying trinkets’ that bring us joy for awhile.
But it never last for long and neither do the smiles.

Then we try a drink or two, only deadening us for a time.
So we try many other things that used to fit us fine.
But nothing seems to help when our well inside goes dry.
We are filled with emptiness with a heart that only cries.

I don’t know what you do then, but I go down on my knees.
And ask God to refill my well and ask for his reprieves.
He holds me in HIS arms and fills the depth of me.
So I again can give to others to help with their pleas.

Fill that well with the love of God and you will make it through.
You’ll bring many others with you; it’s what we’re told to do.
Get on your knees and pray to him and fill your empty well.
Your untold strength will be renewed, much more than I can tell.

Indeed, "Life is a gift from God, and what we do with that life is our gift to God." Life is the most precious and priceless gift that God gave to us. We will never be called humans without this life. And for this life, we will never be here as this moment if we never have God. Live life to the fullest, trust God... for He let the word "mercy" be existed.

Did you know...?

TUGUEGARAO CITY - A five-petal flower, believed to be the only one of its kind in the world and endemic to this province's rainforest, was unveiled here earlier this week.
Without roots, stems or leaves, the flower, named Rafflesia leonardi, was discovered last May by a multi-sectoral group with the aid of Agta tribesmen at the remote Sitio Kinapawan in coastal Lallo town, three hours from this bustling northernmost capital.

But the flower's formal unveiling, according to Perla Visorro, president of the Cagayan Valley Partners in People Development (Cavapped), was only made Monday after almost six months of laboratory studies and research by local and international botanists to further determine and prove its rarity.

The flower, which takes nine to 10 months to fully bloom but starts to wilt after around seven days, was named after Filipino botanist Leonardo Co of Conservation International, who confirmed it as a new species of Rafflesia five months after the flower's discovery.

The flower, which is around 1.5 meters in diameter and only thrives in the rainforest here, was discovered some 300-700 meters above sea level within the Kinapawan forest of the Sierra Madre mountain range.

Visorro said the new species, whose features are similar to R. lobata and R. manillana, was the fourth Rafflesia species found in Luzon and eighth all over the country.

However, among the world's Rafflesia species, the Rafflesia leonardi is the only one with a diaphragm.
I think that this flower is very pretty. Isn't it nice that this rare flower can only be found in the Philippines? I would like to see one myself and eventually plant one in our garden. Wouldn't it be nice?

everybody, but me...


This was taken during my sisters recogniton day; with them was my cousin, Jacob who visited us from Texas. These are my sister: Maurren, Camille and Ara. I don't have any Idea where was I when yhey took this picture; I just wished I was there. Oh well, that's ok. I am sure wherever I was that time am sure I was out doing something important.

You are brilliant and shrewd. You can often predict what people will do in the future.

You thrive in complex situations. You deal with contradictions well.

You can have many streams of though going on at your mind at once. You keep track of things well.

You are very patient. You have lots of endurance, even when your energy dwindles

Awesome! I love to play chess since my grandfather thought me how to play it. It is a great game for me. For me knowing chess and any other board game is like one holding an asset or a virtue to be proud of.
