so that we may share in his glory - holy week

the season of Lent is almost at its peak. a season when we remember just how much love Jesus has poured for each one of us in his passion.what this season reminds me is that in every trial and challenges that we face everyday, there's always a reason why we need to stand up again. because God will not count the number of times that we fail but instead on the number of times that we stood up for Him."But we do see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, so that through God's grace he should die for everyone. We see him now crowned with glory and honor because of the death he suffered for each one of us." - Hebrews 2 : 9the photos here were taken during the sunrise in Cagbalete island. this sunrise came out after a night of strong winds and continuous rains. thanks to Lawstude for waking me up to see it.eskapo will be in hiatus mode during this week and will be back on Easter Sunday. i'll be in the island of Marinduque for the Holy Week.

Beautiful sun shots! I love the glow in it and how it is partly hidden. They are just gorgeous and I could stare at it for long. You've really captured the moment. Thanks for the visit.

>hi chyng, have a blessed week.

>allen, salamat. ikaw din ingat sa mga gagawin sa linggo.

>freeze, that's true. i too rarely catch beautiful sunrise simply because manila bay is facing west.

>pusang-gala, true. but i wont be with my family though during the holy week.

>regeasy, thanks. ill drop by your site.

>kiikay, all glory be unto Him.

Napaboaniya said...

The day looks hopeful with that lovely sunrise :)
Happy Easter Dong!! :)

KRIS JASPER said...

I dont feel the holy week in this country... People are more excited to give chocolate easter eggs. That I dont mind coz Im having them.
lol!

alicesg said...

Very beautiful photos of the sunrise. I dont wake up early enough to take photos of sunrise..lol. Mine are mostly sunset photos.

Eben said...

majestic photos!

The Islander said...

ill be spending my holy week in the island too. but i'm torn. i was tasked to read the first of the seven last words during the lenten celebration in the church. i dont want to reject the opportunity. however, we already planned the trip.

hope God would forgive me. He already gave me the opportunity to roam around the wonderful beaches in the islands...

HalfCrazy said...

As usual, wonderful photos. I kept saving some of your photos in my PC. Don't worry, I won't use them in public, I just love looking at them sometimes LOL.

This is a good spiritual post too. Hope you reflect peacefully! :)

Hilda said...

A beautiful Holy Week post and perfect for reflective prayer. Glorious sunrise photos!

Have a great vacation!

Theonoski said...

the season of lent is the season of forgiveness.we are reminded on how jesus forgive those who sins against him.may we do the same, forgive those who sins against us, for by forgiveness we experience true love.

the donG said...

>napaboaniya, just a display because just right after that sunrise, dark clouds was still there.

have a blessed week.

>jasper, hehehe... i knew that because not accustomed to the church traditions.

i knwo your idea, get the eggs before they hide it. right?

>hi alicesg, that's as rewarding. i believe. waking up early is definitely not a usual thing.

>eben, thanks!

>islander, in that way you get to at least serve them but beyond that is also serving Him. time in an island will definitely be the best to retreat yourself from the busy life.

>hi halfcrzay, no problem. im glad that you find them beautiful enough to be in your computer. i appreciate that.

hope that youll have a blessed week.

>hi hilda, you too. hoping for a blessed week ahead. thanks!

>theonoski, i agree. as much as God is willing to forgive our sins, we to ought to forgive others. have a blessed week ahead with your family.

amazing sunset.

tamang tama sa panahon ngayon. panahon ng pagninilay. parang buhay ng tao, darating at darating ang dapit hapon sa buhay natin. pero naniniwala ako na may dapit hapon upag mabigyang daan nag pagsapit ng bagong umaga.
