GROW

Once I was asked to give a Baccalaureate speech to young boys and girls.
It was a group of graduates from Sangali elementary school, a rural bario in Zamboanga.
At first I found it hard to simplify my message so as to make it understandable to the kids, but in the end, with inspiration coming from Above, I discovered the word "GROW" with a message.
I inspired and encouraged the Kids by persuading and inviting them to "Grow".
I said, If you want to Succeed: "GROW"

G - Be a GOOD Person before God and others.
R - Be RESPECTFUL to your Parents and Elders.
O - Be OBEDIENT to your Superiors.
W - and Work Hard, Do not be Lazy.

To GROW is a moving forward, a progress, a change for the better. It is also a LEAP OF FAITH. And this is not true and applicable only for Kids but also for you and me, GROWNUPS.

This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.

"Leaps of Faith"

"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
