Falling Leaves Can't Mess Up Your Life

Walls with climbing plants always fascinate me just like this building just before Dawson Street at Dublin City Centre. This is a big sign that new season is here. It's time to take the coats, gloves and scarves out of the closet. 


Climbing Plants

Autumn will not stop us from seeing the outside world. This goes with the hope that we can still travel around despite the cold and rainy days. For some people, autumn is the season of the year when they can hibernate or mellow down. Some find it a bit depressing especially when leaves start to fall and when there's more darkness than light. 

There's nothing much we can do about it. Whatever the season, God have reasons. Don't let bad weather stop you from doing what you want to do. Falling leaves can't mess up your life. Don't let depression take you instead go out and appreciate what autumn can give you.

There's purpose for everything. The best thing we can do is to thank God for allowing us to see the day and night, for still having someone by our side whatever weather and for all the blessings that He continuously showers us each day of our lives. 



If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.- Meister Eckhart

  4. That's true sis, there is always something to be thankful. We just need to learn to appreciate things and try not to entertain depressing moments.

  5. i love every season, i guess, it is easier for me to say because i live in a place with very mild and friendly weather, and we only go to mountains nearby to enjoy the true seasons. anyway, i do love winter too, snowshoeing and ice climbing, the only drawback sometimes is when you drive on roads with snow, that, i do not like.

  10. We have the same building here sis, a high school building, which we always pass by every time we go to the Asian store that looks exactly like that. The leaves in the summer are all green, now they're so orangey and red. Too bad though I don't have a snap of it this year kasi ako palagi nagda-drive every time we pass by the spot. Si hubby naman, not into taking photos when we're just in town. LOL. Indeed, thank you is enough to exclaim our gratefulness for the beautiful world we are in.

  13. The fence of our childhood was covered with climbing vines and it added a wonderful touch to our rustic home. As for not letting falling leaves affect your life, I so agree. Life isn't perfect but God's plan is always perfect.

Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives.  Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside.  Colosseum admission fee: Full ticket - €18.00 EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25)  EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18) Opening hours: Mid February - mid March: 9 AM - 4.30 PM Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM End March - end August: 9 AM - 7.00 PM

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in

House as Clean as a Hound's Tooth

Modern cleaning products contain harmful ingredients. Anyone in contact with these products can be affected rendering health problems like irritations, allergies or even respiratory illnesses. It cannot be denied that  household cleaners  available in the market will give us outstanding results. But, are they truly safe for us to use? Be extra careful in choosing cleaning goods. Loads of toxic ingredients might be in the formulation and just waiting to attack. Toilet bowl cleaner for example has chlorinated phenol that are harmful in respiratory and circulatory system. Ethylene Glycol Butyl Ether is present in all purpose cleaner and other cleaners damages nervous system, liver and kidney. Deodorizers has formaldehyde, which is a respiratory irritant and probable human carcinogen under conditions of unusually high or prolonged exposure. These are just few of the many hazardous chemicals composing cleaners. Unfortunately, it is not easy to pin point goods with hazardous ingredients. If
