house upon a hill

He was embracing me from behind..."
with that kind of tenderness that could melt any girl's heart...



whispering into my ear-



"someday i will build you a house upon a hill, you will be my queen and i will be your king"......
we shared such a passion for nature that when far away from each other we would meet in the sky, gazing at the moon...



everything seemed so elusive then when we were but nameless faces in a sea of gold...almost, almost, we almost lost each other



if it were not for a bond that erases all doubt,



all tragedy and misfortune- our first-born son...



happy birthday Francis! this post is for you...



the images we wake up to each morning in our new home whose origin came
from the beating of your heart inside my womb



eleven years ago when your dad promised ...
to build me a HOUSE UPON A HILL...where true love is what we call HOME...
i hope that someday you will also say-



"there is no other place i'd rather be"...



"for God's creation will always be the best sight there could ever truly be

and the best shelter is in the arms of simplicity!"

  9. magkaparehas tayo pagdating sa pagpili ng mga tanawin- bukid.

    nakahiligan ko na kasi ang ganitong mga tanawin mula ng ako'y bata pa. lumaki kasi ako sa ganitong kapaligiran.

    maraming salamat sa pagpa-alala...
