the best days

we have a number of memorable moments in life. but people would ask when are the best days of my life. i will simply say "everyday". maybe because i define the best days of my life as days which are challenging, enjoyable and when it is genuinely dedicated for others in the purpose of bringing honor to God. i believe that our life will only make sense when we learn to make others part of it.
each day might not be as good as the others but looking at the hope offered to us by God, it makes every day a best day. a hope available to us everyday.
the hope to change for the better.

the hope to be able to reach out to others.

the hope to serve others.

the hope to love the unloved.

and the more we share our life, our resources, our time and our love to others, the more our life becomes memorable and worth living. some days may only be more memorable than other days but each day of my life will always be the best.

we have all the sunrise to be reminded of a new hope. a new adventure.

photos were taken on a cloudy sunrise at the Sugar Beach Resort in Bantayan island.

This is a very nice message to share especially when at times, we feel like we're starting to live in a world where the attitude has become "to each his own".

If this world is truly to become a better place, we need to care for each other more.

Beautiful photos as always, Dong. Thanks for sharing.

the simple thought of "living" is good enough to thank the Creator for another chance to write a new page in our life... and sharing life with others makes it more memorable and simply the "best" of our everyday...

nice "blues" & clouds...

true, true, dom. i really like your personal philosophies and reflections because in an increasingly "me, myself, and i" world, we need to be reminded that it's really a "we, ourselves and us" world. we owe it to God to make this a better world and leave this a better place than when we found it. God bless you my friend :-)

collapsingbarrycade said...

indeed, every waking moment is a miracle we ought to make the most out of it. often times, though, this is better said than done. then again, it's the wrong turns in life that help us find the right way.
