i thought that we had it
i thought we could make it
i thought that we were strong
my thoughts were very wrong



what happened between us
you and i know very well
will our path cross again
that, only destiny can tell



are you missing me
the way that i do
i hope your life's better now
for mine is definitely not

Hate is not the antithesis of love. Pride is.



Hate is a distinct, strong emotion that is directly connected with love. You can never hate someone without loving him/her first, because it is exactly because you care for him/her, that's why you subsequently feel hatred towards that person. If you do not love a person, if you do not care for that person, then you won't give a damn about him/her, thus you will have no feelings towards him/her, be it hate or love.



As much as caring is a product of love, I believe that apathy is an offspring of pride. And as much as love is the source of all goodness, pride for me is the source of all evil. And so, if God is Love, the Devil is Pride.



Loving is putting God and other people first before one's self, whereas exhibiting pride is exalting one's self before everything else. A person's action, though important and also a determinant of one's personality, is second only to a person's intent. Therefore, someone who does something wrong because of his love for someone else, may be justified, exempted, or his penalty be mitigated. On the other hand, no matter how "right" a person's action may be, if it is "all for the glory of himself", we see it as nothing more than a piece of trash, perhaps even worse.



To love is to live in hapiness: in real, authentic bliss. To live in pride is to forever live in agony, despair, hopelessness and ultimately, loneliness. With love is the company of true family, friends and lovers. With pride is to suffer with users, abusers and backstabbers.



The most difficult thing about succumbing to pride is that it is almost a one-way ticket to loneliness. Once you fell prey to it, it is almost selling yourself to the Devil, because you will find yourself in a cycle wherein you unconsciously bury yourself in despair and loneliness, and the worst part of this is that you are too proud to admit that you are wrong and you are alone. I said almost, because yes, there is a way out of the cycle of pride, though it is not a way without lots of difficulties and sacrifices.



As a closing, I would like to share this simple procedure on how to make sure that we are living in love and not in pride: Ask yourself, "If Jesus is in my place, what would He do?", then open the Bible and read for yourself.

The One That Got Away



Source: The Manila Times



By: Mark J. Macapagal



     In your life, you'll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special, ones who will always mean something. There's the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you're with... and the one that got away.



      Who is the one that got away? I guess it's that person, with whom everything was great, everything was perfect, but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person; there was no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn't fall the right way, I suppose.



      I believe in the fact that ending up with someone, finding a longtime partner that is, does not lie merely in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing. It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little niceties of giddy romance.



    How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you're not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn't matter who you're with, it just doesn't work. Small problems become big; inconsequential, become deal breakers simply because you're not ready and it shows. It's not that you and the person you're with are no good; it just that it's not yet right, and little things become the flashpoint of th at fact.



    Then one day you're ready. You really are. And when this happens you'll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be the most perfect. They might not be the brightest star of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it'll work because you're ready. It will work because it's the right time and you'll make it work. And it'll make sense, it really will. So that day comes when you're finally making sense of things, and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, and you finally understand who you are and what you want. And you've become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there's no telling when this day will come. Hopefully you're single but you could be in a long-term relationship, you could be married with three kids. It doesn't matter. All you know is that you've changed, and for some reason, the one that got away is the first person you think about. You'll think about them because you'll wonder, "What if they were here today?" You'll wonder, "What if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?" That's what the one that got away is, the biggest "What if?" you'll have in your life.



      If you're married, you'll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Beli eve me, no matter how fairy tale you think your marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you're mature enough to realize that you're already with the one you're with and this is just another test of your commitment. One which will just strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you'll think about him/her every so often, but it's alright. It's never nice to live with a "might have been," but it happens. Maybe the one that got away is the one who's already married. In which case it's the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you're old and gray and reminiscing. But if neither of that is the case, then it's different. What do you do if it's not yet too late? Simple...find him, find her. Because the very existence of a "one that got away" means that you'll always wonder what if you got that one.



      Ask him out to coffee; ask her out to a movie, it doesn't matter if you've dropped in from out of nowhere. You'd be surprised, you just might be "the one that got away" as well for the person who is your "the one that got away." You might drop in from out of nowhere and it won't make a difference. If the timing is finally right, it'll all just fall into place somehow and you know. I'm thinking, it would be a great feeling in the end, to be able to say to someone, "Hey you, you're the one that ALMOST got away."

when you're in love, the world simply stops...



every noise, every sound, seems to whisper her name...



anything becomes possible, just to get close to her...



and that's what i feel for you, i love you, you know that too.



i miss you, i want to be there with you...



you are my princess and my priestess...



you are my whole world... this feeling so strong,



could never be wrong...



i miss you... i need you... i love you.



so let's just hold on and wish we



can be together soon...

~when you're inlove~

when you're in love you do things beyond your expectations...

and that's what i do... i love you... and you know that...

i miss you... i want you here with me... i want to be loved by you...

i am a princess in your eyes... i am your whole world you say...

but what can we do we're million miles away...

i am in love with you... i know you are too...

so let's just hold on and wish we

can be together soon...

i love you too... i miss you too... i need you too...

you are my world too...
