Valentine Rose

So he bought  me a rose

He open the door to my heart that was hurt

And I notice his love by the look in his eyes

He’s gonna make things right

For the rest of our life

He’s gonna hold me tight

Do all those little things

For the rest of our life.

On Traveling: Who Brings What?

As I was browsing at my photo archives, I noticed in one specific photo having this detail at the background. I zoomed out and amused on what it entails. With just one look you can tell on how these two travelers delegate responsibilities.

Light come now quickly

Shadows hide in your absence

Learning Deutsch in Berlin

I have been thinking of sharing this stuff or not, but I thought may be this can do more good than not doing anything at all. As how the universal law says: Ask and you will be give, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened.

Last week, I happened to attend an open house event from Goethi-Institut, Germany’s worldwide cultural and language institute. There were many guests, as they had baking sessions of the best and tasty German bread. They also held taster lessons of German language course, as well as level screening test.

I am currently learning German for the preparation of A1 exam, and you can read here what I know so far. It may be by chance that I went to the event, because they are giving away prices to the attendees. One of that is a free 2-weeks German language course in Berlin.

To win that price, they are running an instagram contest with my entry here . Whoever gets the most “likes/hearts” will be on his/her way to Germany for the said course. It is my desire to get that chance, and so I’m having this courage to share that intention here and to reach out to those who can give a minute of their time and a big heart for this photo here.

Die Zahlen

Today, I’m sharing with you how to count in German.

Numbers are very important in any language – when you tell someone your telephone number, your house number, or your age. If you are ask of “How many …”, “How much…”, you always respond with the numbers.

Die Zahlen:

numbers

Notes:
1. In German, numbers such as 25 or 58 start with the last number and work backwards (like five-and twenty or eight-and-fifty).
2. Numbers in German are written as one word.
3. The use of comma and decimal point are switched in writing German numbers (Like 1.345,05).

 

P.S. Dear Friends, Goethi-Institut here in Abu Dhabi is giving away free German language course in Berlin, and I have my entry here. The most likes will get that chance of studying in their main institute in Berlin. Please click here to get into my instagram entry. I appreciate your support. Thank you.

 

 

Cleanse Me

I always keep my pains, my struggles, my thoughts within myself. I never shared them openly as opposed to anyone who can just simply tell their own stories. It’s not that I don’t trust them with mine, but …

As when I start to hear my voice, 

      my words are broken, 

      my eyes wet, 

      my hands tremble, 

      my heart pumps faster than a race,

Until no words are to be spoken, and I’m left with a broken heart, a tortured thoughts that I could not understand why I blame myself of not having the strength of sharing my pains, my struggles. I just couldn’t. 

While i was in high school, one morning with our English class, our teacher required us to bring a journal notebook. Life was already difficult for me back then. I couldn’t afford to buy one. And couldn’t say it because I couldn’t accept in myself that I simply couldn’t  afford it. I was silent. But my seat mate had guessed it. She had guessed it that with my silence she knew that something was not right. But I hated her because she asked, “How are you? Do you have your journal?” I stared blank at her, then I left.

Those were all from the past. Those were the days of not knowing who I really am. Those were the times when I did not know that deep within me is a stronger self, there is a greater Self that is waiting to be acknowledged. 

I was introduced to Him. I was introduced to His Love, His Comforting Love. I was introduced to the One who knows all my pains and my struggles, to the One who I can tell all my pains and my struggles even though He knows it all. 

When I knew Him, I asked Him to cleanse me, I asked Him to make me anew, I asked Him to comfort me with all the pains and the struggles I am going through. I asked Him to cleanse me with all the thoughts and feelings that make me away from Him. I asked Him to hold me tight, but He said, “I am always here. I am always with you. I am always in you. Hold on to Me. Feel Me in you.”

I am a new person. I am a new being. I am cleanse by the Love of God. 

In Him, I am a new creation. All things are made anew. Like a spring of living  water that cleanses me through.

“I breathe and move and live in Him.”
