Writing is one way to express one’s self. Words are a simple tool. Yet they can dramatically shape the reader as well as the writer. Perhaps, it is the glue that binds the writer and the reader in a magical and wonderful partnership. Cautiously chosen and carefully delivered, words can powerfully penetrate our deepest selves, trigger us to think and reshape our thinking, make us move and decide . . . even make us to stop. Words can make us or break us. It can heal us and remake us.
Words affect even the one who writes. Personally, I write not because I know something, but because I want to know something. I write to find out my innermost thoughts, to explore my innermost feelings, to challenge my own deepest understanding . . .
. . . through writing, I discover myself. Through self-discovery, I grow.
In this blog I write about diverse topics. For the purpose of simplicity, I divided my articles in the following major categories:
Reflections — This covers a wide perspective of different topics, however, there are concepts that may populate my posts, topics about grace, forgiveness, faith, wisdom, relationships, growth, and attitude. Here, I write what I reflect about my own experiences as well as what I observe in the world around me. Occasionally, I may include some personal questions that keep on bothering me. I categorize them as “Just Wondering.”
My Studies — Writings I made in my studies, articles I published in our academy magazine, and other academic matters that intrigue me fall in this category. I made a little revisions and adjustments to fit the general readers.
Grace — Here, I write about the different faces of God’s grace translated in our daily lives.
Snapshots — Reading feeds me everyday. Whenever I read something that leaves impact on me, I am tempted to write about it. Here are my attempts to express how I relate to some of the striking concepts I read from known authors. I refrain from calling it “book reviews” because I don’t describe the entire book. Instead, I choose just part or parts of it and discuss it.
