Saliducon- my home, my paradise!

Saliducon comes from the root word ‘’ saliduk’’ which means “water pipe.”  Thus “saliducon” would literally mean a pipeline, water path or place where water flows through.  Saliducon is rich in natural  resources.  Namely, sallep which  is where the fresh water comes from to supply   thousands of people in some areas of Sta Cruz Davao Del Sur. The Barangay is surrounded by a vast forest and green trees. Unfortunately, some Brgy. officials are active but most are not.

Kudos to  the Brgy. Captain Peter Renon Sumbilon, and the two Brgy. Councilors namely Erwin & Tony Eting and one citizen who fixed  the water system.

The waters of Saliducon River are as clear as crystal. It is a living witness of my childhood. During weekends, lolo and lola permitted us to play and plunge into the river we usually call it “Linaw” means deep kind of crystal. Saliducon  river is the body of sallep. There’s a part of the river where we jumped from the top of the boulder down to the running spring.  I guess, it’s 10 or 11 feet above the water. Oh how I miss my childhood, when every enjoyable thing was all wild and free!

Thank You Heavenly Father!

A Morning is a wonderful blessing, either cloudy or sunny. It stands for hope and thanksgiving. Yes! sunshine dancing on my shoulder, grasses are so  green today no dusts on my feet. Some white petals on the ground so lovely and wonderful.

Dear God,

Thank you for the clouds in the sky, and the rainbows I can see.  Thank you for the green grass and the flowers and the trees.  Thank you, God, for this world and all that you have made for me.  I thank you Good Lord for keeping me through the night and waking me with the morning light. You know, Lord, sometimes when I’m sad I do things that I shouldn’t.  Please forgive me when I do something I know is not right. Father God, bless this voice that let me sing songs of praise to you.  Thank you for helping me to remember to use my voice to say nice things to my family and to all my friends. Bless the people who take care of me, love me and to those who persecute me.  Thank you for watching over all of us today and through the night.  Help me, Lord, to love you more than I have ever loved you before. In my life and in my play be with me throughout my day, Thank you, God, for everything you do for me.  I love you,  Heavenly Father! Amen.

The Value of Communication

What is a relationship without communication? It’s like a house without a foundation. Communication is the foundation, the building block upon which we can build a successful and loving relationship. The bottom line is that failure to communicate is one of the main reasons why couples break up or why friendship ends. To have a chance of getting through relationship, communication is a must. If you value your relationship/friendship, you must be committed to make it work. Being able to effectively communicate is a skill and as with any skill, it requires practice, time and patience to master it. Communication plays a large role in the exchange between people. It helps exchange information in the form of ideas, wants, desires, feelings, and much more. Incomplete or stopped communication can create a block in the relationship. The degree of the block can vary with the severity or persistence of the communication stop. A relationship will be endangered when communication is avoided.

God Will Make A Way Where There Seems To Be No Way

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd;I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;  thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”

Have you forgotten God our Savior today? Have you not remembered the Rock, your fortress? Trust in him at all times, O servants like me; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. God is our salvation; trust and be not afraid. The LORD, is our strength and our song; Do not tremble, do not be afraid for He is always there to lead our way.
