ADVENT

ADVENT
A new Year
A new Beginning, with new opportunities to love and to serve and do good.
A chance to start anew.


In the Gospel of the First Sunday of Advent, the Lord Jesus repeated many times the word "WATCH". Reminding you and me to watch for His coming, to be vigilant, to be attentive, to pay attention to what is essential in our preparation for Christmas.


For indeed there's so much to watch for...for our gifts to come, for celebrations, the beautiful decorations and lights, bonuses and more. But we should never forget the important things.


As a Filipino Priest once shared, Maybe we can watch attentively our:
W- WORDS Words of Kindness are important and be careful with words that hurt and destroy others. A- ACTIONS Acts of Goodness for others are important
T- THOUGHTS Good thought that produces good actions
C- CHARACTER Simplicity and Humility
H- HEART Getting rid of hatred, Envy, Hatred, Resentment.
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.
