Friendship may arise almost immediately, or it may take years to develop between two or more people who have known each other for a long time. Two of the outstanding characteristics of friendship are that it can become enduring and unwavering, when step by step it has been woven through the service and continuous coexistence to and with one another. Curiously enough friendship can be viewed as feminine, despite the ability to be emotionally born between men and women alike, a feeling that lodges itself directly in the hearts of human beings and perhaps within the beloved pets that live with us. Perhaps its nature, because it includes in it meaning many aspects related to the emotional and sentimental characteristics of a woman. Like, for example: The ability to feel affinity, loyalty, solidarity and love with great intensity towards another human being who is not direct family.
I have heard many different definitions of the word love. I have read a variety of books that define the word love. I have seen many videos of people who claim to have the precise meaning of the word love. All affirm that their definition is true and then they disprove themselves by making a series of contradictions when speaking or expressing with corporal movements the meaning of the word love. For me, the word love is not defined by concepts, laboratory tests or scientific methods, since love is a feeling that lives with the soul and is always demonstrated in all places where those that I care for are nearby.
This is the definition of hope I like: Hope is anticipating and longing for the promised blessings of righteousness. The scriptures often speak of hope as the anticipation of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.
Today as I looked towards the sky … And I felt that the wind that played with my hair was as cold as ice.
With my gaze fixed on infinity I was looking for consolation. Many days have passed, since you left and although I know that seeing you return is impossible, I carry your memory inside me.
Suddenly, something caught my attention. It shined so strangely. Its radiance was like the sun’s rays.
In many occasions it is not necessary to think about tomorrow when it is enough to learn to live in the present without missing a single opportunity to serve and love.
Who moved the photograph? The photograph, that every morning when I woke up, I observed hanging on the wall; in front of my bed. The photograph, which reminded me of how happy I was! And how happy I want to be again!
Who moved the photograph? The photograph, where I’m seen smiling undeniably radiant with light in my eyes, reflecting the strength of my youth.
In this special time, it is good to know a bit of history to get to know the true meaning of Christmas.
Christmas is a celebration that, according to historians, has its origin from many pagan festivals, which were celebrated to honor mythological gods or commemorate cruel or bloody acts. In addition, history assures that formerly in the temples erected for the adoration to God, existed much ecclesiastical debauchery. That has nothing to do with the birth of Jesus Christ; According to several scientists who studied earthly events and biblical stories, they have determined that the birth of Jesus Christ occurred between the months of April or May. And that Christmas was a holiday instituted by the Roman church, which chose December 25 to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ. This way, all believers moved away from pagan festivals to celebrate a transcendental event such as the BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST, uniting them in a single celebration called CHRISTMAS.
When I read the story of Fausto (A very original story of a man who tirelessly seeks happiness); I found it SURPRISING that he found that happiness he so longed for, in the service he performed in favor of other people. It was then that I remembered when I was a child I was terrified of growing up and losing the wonderful piece of the world that surrounded me. The company of my parents, the jokes of my brothers, the games with my friends. All the words of tenderness and the loving way with which they spoke to me.
When a person dies a separation of body and spirit occurs. And even though we cannot see them physically, they never separate from our side as they remain in our memories, thoughts and hearts.
In the light of a lantern in twilight! Sitting on a rock, dazed and without a fixed point, I direct my gaze towards the empty environment, wrapped in an inexplicable loneliness Dreaming of going back home!
What an impossible wish! I have asked, whispering into the wind, to allow me a moment more; even if I must steal it from eternity, just to see you again!
