Why are we able to Believe?

Hello Everyone:),

We are here on earth in order to know and to love God, to do good according to his will, and to go someday to heaven.

God desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” -1 Timothy 2:4

To be a human being means to come from God and to go to God. Our origin goes back farther than our parents. We come from God, in whom all happiness of heaven and earth is at home, and we are expected in his everlasting, infinite blessedness. Meanwhile we live on this earth. Sometimes we feel that our Creator is near; oftentimes we do not feel his presence. So that we might find the way home, God sent us his Son, who freed us from sin, delivers us from all evil, and leads us unerringly into true life. He is “the way, and the truth, and the life” Jn 14:6.

You cannot imagine at all how much  you interest God; he is interested in you as if there were no one else on earth.” -Julien Green

Why did God create us?

When man loves, his heart overflows. He would like to share his joy with others. He gets this from his Creator. Although God is a mystery, we can still think about him in a human way and say: Out of the “surplus” of his love he created us. He wanted to share his endless joy with us, who are creatures of his love.

“God is love.” -1Jn 4:16b

The measure of love is love without measure.” -St. Francis of Sales

Forty days of Lent: What it Means to Me

Hello Everyone! 🙂

Today I went to Sunday church Mass, even on this cloudy day it still felt good to go. I was kind of afraid it might rain but it did not, it was cloudy and cold February day. I did not care if it was raining, I still would of gone to church Mass.
Today is the first day of Lent which reminds me of the importance of growing closer to God and to repent, to turn toward the Lord. I read the church bulletin after Mass, and learned that “to convert” means to turn toward.” To turn towards God and Jesus Christ. We have to turn our hearts towards God. Personally, this is something I have to work on because sometimes I feel like I am not yet fully connected with God and Jesus Christ. I am learning not to turn to negative people and things and more on God and Jesus.
I learned the hard way that praying and turning to Jesus is essential in order to have faith in Him and have Him in your life because He is the Savior.
Will you give up something these 40 days of Lent?
Me I will only give up thinking negative thoughts and always be surrounded with happiness, positivity, faith, and hope. I want to make these forty days and beyond, the best years of my life. I want to feel God’s presence in my life.

Death is a Nightmare, Death is Eternal Rest

Death follows us wherever we go.
It creeps into us when we least expect it.
Death is no ones friend,
Yet, it somehow finds us,
It begs to be noticed.
Death is a nightmare
Death is eternal rest.

Being afraid of death is a part of us.
But we can’t escape death,
I have not felt death
I have only seen its black cold hands touch its next victim.
Death is the reaper`s friend
They work close together to bring death to all of us.

Death is a part of life
Yet, we all seem to not like death
Death is a nightmare
Death is eternal rest.

Butterflies in a Jar

Butterflies in a jar
Flap their colorful wings waiting to be set free.
They have been locked inside the jar for a long time,
They long to feel the fresh air touch their small bodies and fragile wings.

Butterflies in a jar
Dance inside, hoping to be set free.
They long to fly, to travel, to discover.
To feel the sense of being wild and young.
Being trapped in a jar is like being trapped in a prison jar.

They see the beautiful world around them and their eyes grow weary at being trapped inside, not knowing what to do.
Their young, curious eyes grow old and tired with each passing moment.

Being Careful

Hello Everyone :)!

Being careful in life is not always easy. There are many temptations that keep us from being careful in life. We are not perfect humans and if we do not watch what we do, what we say, or what we think, then those actions, thoughts, and feelings we create inside of us can affect us in so many ways.

When we are young, we tend to often think that nothing will happen to us; that everything we do whether it is good or bad will not hurt us. Of course taking risks and being adventurous is always our goal in life but we also have to learn to see when it is safe and when it looks like we have crossed the line from being careful to facing danger.

My Mom has always been super protective of me ever since me and my twin sister were born so I sometimes know that she does not want me to be in danger. She is always making sure that I stay safe all the time and that I am always careful in everything I do. She was not always careful during her childhood and adolescence mainly because she lost her Mother when she was three years old so her need to take care of me and my siblings really is important to her. Being the youngest sibling in her family, the only family she had were: her Father, sisters and other relatives that would take care of her but nothing compared to the deep sincere love that she had for her Father. Her Father taught her how to take care of herself at a very young age. The knowledge of not having a Mother really made my Mom learn to be responsible and careful on her own as she grew throughout the years.

Real Love

Hello Everyone,

Real love is like real life.
There are no Prince Charming
In the real world.
As humans it is easy to fantasize, to believe that there are such things as fairytale love.
As we grow older, life`s experiences make us realize that there truly is no such things as fairytale love, it does not exist.
True real love happens when you least expect it.
As people in the 21st century, we have to wait for real true love to come to us, not chase after the perfect man or women  of our dreams.
It is time to embrace our single status and be happy within ourselves, to do whatever makes us happy.

To me Valentine’s Day is about not just about showing love to the people close to your heart, it is also a time to learn to love yourself more, no matter how many scars you have from the past. This February 14, is a time to erase all of the hate that we have inside of us for ourselves or someone else and just show love to yourself and to others.

Love is one of the greatest gifts in the planet, let’s not waste it.

Hello is his Name

Hello is his name

Whenever I smile I remember Hello

He is my friend

Night and day he comes sneaking to me

The sun comes out shining high in the sky.

Everyone tries to put Hello down

He is special, amazing, wonderful

No one understands him, except me

He might not be good-looking,

but righteous in heart.

Hello is his name

Spend the whole nights with him

Dancing and signing like no one is watching us

He is my friend

Night and day he comes sneaking to me

Seeing him is like seeing magic come alive

The sun comes out shining high in the sky

There is nothing else I want

Only Hello by my side.

I am Single and Proud of It

Hello Everyone:)!

It is February, which means it Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I do not know about you guys but me I am really happy being single right now:) I would like to meet that special guy that will sweep me off my feet and make me feel like a princess, but right now I am only twenty-three years old and my main priorities right now are working towards my writing career and just learning to be on my own. I do not want to be that type of women who just wants to depend on her boyfriend or have one to make her feel special and confident.

The are women that have low self-esteem which means that they do not like to be alone, this can be a negative thing for anyone to do because as a person you are not learning to discover yourself and how to be independent.

My Mom and Aunt, Carmen (RIP), have both taught me from a young age to be independent, strong, and confident. Over the years it has been tough for me to appreciate myself and grow out of my shell, I am slowly learning each day as I grow older to be confident, to be on my own. I first want to live life on my own to the fullest, doing the things that I want to do, and go to the places I want to go.

Sometimes it surprises me how much my junior high friends have changed, I do not talk to them anymore but seeing their Instagram and Facebook profiles has made me realize how much they have changed over the years. The girls I used to hang out with in junior high are now the same age as me and they are already Mothers with kids of their own. I smile every time I see their pictures:). I see their pictures and think, am I the only person who is not rushing through life, that is just taking things slowly? I have always been a late bloomer; I sometimes think about dating.

I can date a guy but I prefer to wait and just let my life happen as it is supposed to. I want to go step-by-step and take the time that I have to learn about myself and to learn more about life.

My plans for this Valentine’s Day are to bake sugar cookies for my family and to just relax and think about all the love that is surrounding me right now. I do not want to worry or be sad about still being single and having to find the right guy for me.

Spreading love is all we need

No I do not want to worry

Because worrying makes the soul unhappy.

Just be yourself, love will come to you.

Make more time to write

Hello Everyone :-)!

Hope you all had a great weekend:-) my weekend has been swell. I have been thinking about what would be some great ways to make time for writing. Everyday I am learning to balance my college online courses with freelance writing on Hubpages, then taking care of all my other responsibilities of cooking, cleaning, and helping my Mom around the house doing errands for her that often time it seems to me like there is not enough time in one day to take care of my writing.

These are the things I should do more to make enough time for writing:

1. Do the more important tasks first then focus on my writing.
2. Not get distracted too much (need to work more on this).

Those are mainly the two things I need to do to make more time.
What tips do you do for creating more writing time?

I will appreciate your helpful suggestions, thank you.
