Today I remember my Father Agripino "Pin" Faustino.
He was my protector. (One day back home in Kabatan, Zamboanga del sur, when I was just a kid, I won't forget How my dad bravely carried me in his arms, as we were fleeing , evacuating, while people were panicking around us, to a safer place, for the bandits, terrorists were attacking the next nearest town. I thought then, that with him nothing wrong could ever happen.)

He was a Good Provider. Whatever I asked he will give. I guess that's the reason why in a way I kind of developed the attitude of Getting what I want always). He will never fail to give and so even now even if he has gone back to the father in heaven, I still ask him for help in times of need and hardships in life and I know he will never fail me.

He was my Guide. On his death bed he told me simply and clearly when at a time I was not certain of my future, I was a seminarian then, He said: "You have started it finish it."

A Protector, A Provider and my Guide.
My Dad. PAPANG really showed me the true traits of our Heavenly Father in Heaven.
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 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.
