Season of Hope

The lake in front our Camp
Turns dry in summer
to become not simply like this .( take a look closer)

but acre of salt
" Salt is born of the purest of parents: the sun and the sea." - Pythagoras.

Yesterday, pagkatapos mag jogging naupo ako sa isang tabi to pray. Ang dami kong kailangang sabihin kay God.This week was really tough. Di mo maiwasang maramdaman sa katawan ang bigat ng mga nangyayari sa ating paligid alam kong nararamdaman niyo rin ito. I feel sick and tired sa mga problema ng iba na pilit kong ayusin at sa huli ako ang may nakakaaway.

Habang ako'y nakayoko pinagmasdan kong maigi ang lupang kinatatayuan ko, hindi pala lupa kundi bed of salt. Doon umikot ng sadali ang aking isipan.Bakit ba gusto ng diyos na tayo'y maging asin sa mundong ito?

When he said in Matthew 5:13" You are the salt of the earth but if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?It is no longer good for anything, except be thrown out and trampled underfoot."


One of the interesting things about salt when it is used it loses itself.You do not see the salt in your food because it makes its contribution and is gone but you taste it. Nandoon siya di mo lang nakikita.

In the same way, wag tayong mag atubiling ibahagi ang ating sarili at matakot na mawala ito sa pagawa ng mabuti at pagtulong sa kapwa.

Mas kaaya-aya, wag kalilimutan always speak with grace seasoned with salt.

Ito na naman ako.nagpapaka banal.Peace every one.

Araw araw may natutunan ako sayo. thanks sa pagbahagi nito. Madalas kasi ang tao may selfish mode, ayaw ibahagi ang sarili niya. This is a wake up call.

Akoni said...

Ang gaganda ng mga views...galing mo ah..

Ishmael Fischer Ahab said...

Tama ka Diamond. Pero may idadagdag ako.

Ang asin ay epektibo rin pampigil na mabulok ang karne. Kaya tayo itinulad sa asin dahil gusto ng Diyos na tayo ay maging instrument upang mapigil ang kabulukan sa mundo.

musingan said...

@REINA- Salt in 1865 sold for up to a dollar a pound in the south.During the civil war, one of the principal purpose of the union campaign in Virginia was to capture a source of salt of the confederacy at saltville. This pile of salt in my backyard acre of them are somewhat a mine of gold to some people in the world.

@Moks- I like that. thanks Moks. a dream come true if it happened. I'm lucky to take photo of this lake before it's gone forever. A construction had started to mobilize in the same spot lately.nalungkot ako bigla. Wag lang sana Nuclear plant ang ipalit.

@His unfailing love - thanks for the comment and for the visit.

Diamond R said...

@Poldo - Nasa Mafraq ang Camp namin.Part pa rin ng industrial area.Pero may mga lake dito dahil seguro sa mga ulan na di natutuyo maliban na lang kung walang ulan sa dalawang mag kasunod na taon. tulad nitong taong ito.

Napansin ko nga mukhang busy ka talaga sa work.

Diamond R said...

@akoni - Thanks. Ang views lang talaga ang magaganda.na capture lang talaga sila ng ganon.at salamat sa digital cam.Walang effort na galing sa akin.

Diamond R said...

@Ismael Fishcher Ahab - Thanks. Indeed it corrodes but preserves.
and will continue to remind us of its important.Salamat bro.

Diamond R said...

@Musigan- OO dito ito sa amin sa labas lang namin.Maybe next year iba na ang makikita ko dito dahil may itatayo na yatang building dito.buti na lang nakuhanan ko na.
