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.”

Plot:
Director Nick Cassavetes collaborates with screenwriter Jeremy Leven (The Notebook) for this drama about a pair of parents who resort to unorthodox methods in order to save their young daughter’s life, only to find their decision coming back to haunt them in a manner neither could have ever foreseen.

Sara (Cameron Diaz) and Brian (Jason Patric) are coasting through life with their young son and daughter when tragedy threatens to tear the family apart. Suddenly, their baby girl falls ill, and her only hope for survival rests in her parents’ ability to find a compatible bone marrow donor. Desperate to save their daughter’s life at any cost, Sara and Brian conceive another child in hopes that the baby will be a genetic match. But that decision raises a series of moral and ethical questions that rapidly begin to erode the foundation of the once-happy couple’s relationship. Incensed upon learning that she was brought into this world for the singular purpose of prolonging the life of her ailing older sister, the young girl (Abigail Breslin) ultimately decides to sue her parents for the rights to her own body.

A Heartbeat Away

Dreams, seem so far away
And other times,
Just right around the corner
And I know you’re gone
But I’m amazed how close you feel
And we both, for long
The love we have is real

I close my eyes
And feel you near
In every dream,in every tear
In every memory
That doesn’t fade away
And it feels like FOREVER
Is just a heartbeat away…

Days may come and go
Then suddenly,
Oh time won’t seem to matter
There’s a space between us
But love can spare the distance
We can reach beyond these walls
Until I’ll be with you

I close my eyes
And feel you near
In every dream,in every tear
In every memory
That doesn’t fade away
And it feels like FOREVER
Is just a heartbeat away…

People say that I’ll forget
And time will dry away my tears
But how could they know
What it feels like
When all the word we’ve ever shared
I left the shadows everywhere
And every single falling star
Makes me wanna be, where you are

I close my eyes
And feel you near
In every dream,in every tear
In every memory
That doesn’t fade away
And it feels like FOREVER
Is just a heartbeat away…

And it feels like FOREVER
Is just a heartbeat away…
