The Glorious Sunset


It is wonderful to be young with clear sight, sharp hearing, and flexible step, pulses drumming to the protest of exhilarating health. But old age has glories that youth cannot know. It is a blessing to be in old age. Old age celebrates the harvest. Like fruit in the fall, the harvest of old age will either dry up or wither or grow mellow and sweeter as it ripens.

We cannot escape the advancing years. So don’t be ashamed to own your age. Everything abides will become old like mountains, rivers. oceans, stars. But the best things are the oldest things, things that have endured and stood the test of time. Nothing to be sad as an aging person, because life can be bright if we have one who is the light as our evening sun and that is Jesus Christ.

Off topic, just a quick visit...

Just want to express my gratitude to all of you who offers such a strong support to my family, with your prayers and encouraging words it lighten up the burdens we are feeling. We will be flying tonight going to the Philippines to attend to my brother's funeral.

Please include us in your prayers especially my children, for them not to catch the h1n1 virus that is going around the country. Thank you all once again!

Hello there Mom Merlyn! We got back since Sunday but wasn't able to visit blogs till now. They got sick (diarrhea) except me. We actually brought EJ to the hospital today because he is fevered (still is till now.).

I would like to thank you all for the wonderful and encouraging words you said and left at my blogs. For the sympathy and prayers, and for those who shared their blessings to the family! May God bless you all for your compassionate hearts!
