·When I started this blog 9 years ago, I originally wanted it to become a money making blog. I was alone, depressed and bored when I came to New York. Somebody introduced me to blog for money and so I thought why not try it. I was told to keep on writing about random things and monetize the posts. I started earning but eventually random writings became my personal reflection about God's plan for me. I stopped receiving paid posts and decided to make this blog as my online journal of my personal journey as a Christian.
Why Penlighted? Penlight symbolizes my love for healthcare and attending to sick people. Lighted pen symbolizes the ideas and reflections that came to light while I was writing.
My personal goal is to become a reflection of God's love. To let my light shine before others so they may glorify God through my simple good deeds and through serving other people.
Matthew 5:16 became my personal guide of how I wanted to live my life.
I was amazed and grateful to see that this verse can be our gospel reading for our wedding. I take this as a verse that we can reflect upon our life mission. Marriage is not just a commitment that you make with each other but also a life purpose. Marriage will bind two lights to make it brighter and radiate stronger to reach more darker souls.
Jesus said to his disciples:
“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lamp stand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.”
I pray through the intercession of the Blessed Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, Saint Jude, and Saint Therese...that we will have a successful wedding this Sunday.
I pray for protection through the help of St. Michael the Archangel...
I ask the intercession of St. Claire, that we may have an amazing warm weather this Sunday.
05 for GOD'S GRACE.
08 for A NEW BEGINNING and INFINITY.
May 08, 2016 is also mother's day.
I can't wait to offer my flowers to Mama Mary on our day.
All glory and honor is Yours, Lord.
