Prayers....

Have you ever noticed that everytime we pray, it makes us feel assured, humbled and selfless? Like you could share your thoughts, plans, and things that you want to accomplish to God. I really can't describe the feeling, all I can say it is wonderful. We can't please other people to like us no matter what but if you try to talk to our God even just a couple of minutes, somehow our burden is lessen.

 

Through prayers, we can wish our love ones, friends, neighbors even enemies to…

To Love Somebody....

Why is it so hard to love somebody that both of you has it's own life already?

Why is it so hard to love somebody who gave you all the LOVE and CARE but you need to consider somebody's feelings?

Why is it too late to meet somebody who you thinks he/she is the one for you and you are a perfect couple?

 

Why is it that sometimes LOVE isn't fair enough?
