Refreshed




Isaiah 55: 12
“You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.”

After spending a day out there on the hills reflecting on God's wonders, and what He has done for me, it's like I'm breathing a much fresher air. It’s something that recharges my energies.

The feel of the mountain breeze against my face is so amazing. It’s not everyday we experience this. The worries may distract my attention. But it’s nothing compared to what God has done and will do for mankind.

There were three of us who went to enjoy the quiet and serene place. My wife prepared the food, while our friend did the driving. I would have wanted to ride this pony but I am not sure if it wants me. Too heavy perhaps. :)

Nice view. I also like the mountain scenery. You could feel very peaceful just by looking at it.

that's good Lazarus. Sometimes we just need to be away from the chaos to think freely and to let go of all the negative things.

zherwin/Ralph/Daisy/cess/tutubi/ferdz, the place I went to is in the mountain baranggay in cebu city going to the Balamban town. It's popularly known as the Trans-central highway. Para na rin syang tagaytay.

snglguy, even watching sunsets atop a high rise building is something refreshing for me.

phanyang, my wife is from surigao. :) My sis' husband is from surigao also.
