Thank You

It’s been a decade since I first heard this song. But lately, this song has somehow come to my mind several times.

The song really is just a reminder that we all need a rescuer – a savior. A Savior who can save us not just from our own brokenness but also from ourselves. Because many times, if we were just left to ourselves, to our own devices we would just have self-destructed.

Thank you, Lord, for saving me in all areas of my life 🙂 

Resting in Him, Learning from Him

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 New Living Translation

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30 The Message

Kristel de Catalina, Spiral Pole Dancing and Reaching for Your Dreams

I admit it that from my corner of the world I do not really know Kristel de Catalina.

I also admit that I am not familiar with spiral pole dancing.

And then I saw Kristel perform spiral pole dancing for her audition in Pilipinas Got Talent.

Her performance was breathtaking, perfect. All the judges were impressed- Vice Ganda even pushed the golden buzzer sending Kristel straight to the Semi-finals.

Her performance during the Semi-finals was again flawless.

The judges talked about Kristel’s dedication to her son (she’s a single parent) during her performances as something that was inspiring.

I also want to highlight one other thing that’s inspiring of her performance.

Kristel is clearly passionate about dancing but at one point this passion or dream had to take the backseat as she fell in love, had a child. It appears that this romantic episode she had had with a man did not lead to forever.

That must have been heartbreaking.

But she found her dream, her dance again. And we are all lifted up, just a bit higher in experiencing beauty, hope, joy as she dances before us.

Kristel, keep dancing. May God bless you and lead you onward in living your dream.

To me personally, you are already THE winner 🙂
