who can comprehend

the depths of one’s soul

where life and being spring forth

that sets one apart from all other life forms?

this likeness and this image

this soul and this spirit

witness to my joy and my laughter

home to all my sorrow and pain…

the intangible me

bleeding…

weeping…

gushing forth  like a river

from my innermost being

seeking…

calling…

deep calls to deep

at the sound of thy waterfalls

hoping…

for heaven’s balm

to make the ignoble daily tasks

bearable…

ordinary moments flash

without warning

reminding me

of the hollowness…

the longing…

comforted by thoughts

that demand my generosity

to relinquish my selfishness

to wish you back to me

this journey is long

this road is narrow and difficult

this path is mine alone

to trek

one painful step

at a time

one sunrise

one sunset

at a time

crawling…

groping…

for some hope…

some sense of relief

from this weight pressed

upon my chest…

from whence cometh the rain?

to break this fallow ground?

from whither cometh sweet whispers?

to ease this grating sound…

pounding…

pounding…

reality and eternity…

seen and unseen…

battling inside me…

Be still, oh my soul

Be quiet, oh raging seas

Be healed, oh wounded heart

Be whole, oh broken spirit

Yea, all is not lost

yet dawn seems too far off…

how long is one’s nightfall?

how dark is one’s midnight?

how black is one’s shadow?

Yet here in this valley…

this valley of shadows

here in this gorge

of indescribable pain…

here in this urn

filled with my grief and mourning

From these ashes

my hope of eternity rises…

for all those i love and

all i ever hold dear…

from these ashes…

I see eternity…




Sometimes my little heart can't understand
What's in Your will what's in Your plan
So many times I'm tempted to ask You why
But I can never forget it for long
Lord what You do could not be wrong
So I believe You even when I must cry

Chorus:
Do I trust You Lord does the robin sing?
Do I trust You Lord does it rain in spring?
You can see my heart You can read my mind
And You've got to know I would rather die
Than to lose my faith in the One I love
Do I trust You Lord?
Do I trust You?


I know the answers I've given them all
But suddenly now I feel so small
Shaken down to the cavity in my soul
I know the doctrine and theology
But right now they don't mean much to me
This time there's only one thing I've got to know

Chorus 2:
Do I trust You Lord does the river flow?
Do I trust You Lord does the North wind blow?
You can see my heart You can read my mind
And You've got to know I would rather die
Than to lose my faith in the One I love
Do I trust You Lord?
Do I trust you?
Chorus 3:
I will trust You Lord when I don't know why
I will trust You Lord 'til the day I die
I will trust You Lord when I'm blind with pain
You were God before and You'll never change

I will trust You, I will trust You Lord
I will trust You Lord
I will trust You, I will trust You Lord
I will trust You Lord
I will trust You, I will trust You Lord
I will trust You Lord

Dear family and friends,

My dad passed away yesterday morning at 2:34 am. I would like to thank you all for standing with us and offering prayers and messages and loving support all through out this time. His body lies in state in Meycauayan, Bulacan as we wait for my siblings to arrive from abroad after which he will be transferred to Loyola Memorial-Guadalupe, Makati for cremation. Details to follow.blessings

Once again, my personal heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all who have prayed with us. I am overwhelmed by all the love that has been pouring in from all over and I pray that the Lord would reward you above and beyond I could ever give all of you.
