Like in many scenarios of the sunrise, the sunset, the sea, a sleeping animal, a beautiful mountain view and the like express such details of silence in it’s vivid form. Yes, they all do and I cannot disagree with that, however, I will try to take away your silence or mine in a different way.
Sometimes in our lives, we seek for silence we do not know where to find. The moment we face something unwanted, we face the nature where we can find the pleasure of the serenity it gives us. But, it is only for a moment. When we feel tired, where do we go? Of course, we bump our heads to the softest pillow we have and wait until we get ourselves to rest. Then, we achieve silence amidst our rest. Others find them in doing active sports that would really take their breath away. And they feel a sudden rush of peace. I can only imagine because I cannot put myself in such trauma while having fun. For all that matters, have you ever tried finding it on the roads or paths you take? I mean literally.
I am showing photos from different trips I had. The bridge seems narrow but if you have the courage and strength to cross it, you may get to where you wanted to be in the first place. The trail up a hill may take you quite sometime to reach the top but with perseverance you will eventually get there. And a pathway underneath the trees may give you some troubles along the way, like seeing a crossing reptile or an ugly ape. If you don’t mind them, they won’t bother you but do not forget to run whenever it’s needed. Just run for safety. For sure, you’ll get there.
Crossing that bridge with courage and strength, taking that trail with perseverance and going through that pathway needs only one thing – a moment of silence. It is in this point that we stop and listen to our heartbeats and when we’re ready we take that big step we can never imagine. We only need a moment of silence.
Oftentimes, we forget many things because we hurry up to do so many chores and tasks for the day. We tend to divide many parts of our time just to fit in for the day’s purpose. Sometimes, we fail to notice many simple things and we almost do not see their importance. Time is very inevitable. We cannot change the passing of time but we can always make room for time.
“Delta is an area of low, flat land shaped like a triangle, where a river splits and spreads out into several branches before entering the sea.” At some point, this may show us the variation of time as it slowly evanescent and fades like a flower. My photos may not seem like an area of low, flat land but it sure does show us the inevitable changes of time. Life is very short, let us make something worthy of our Creator’s approval.
Order has its many ideologies – depending on how the person acts upon it, looks on it and how one does it. I am taking on a different angle of showing order at how I perceive things differently.
As a nature lover myself, I am quite amazed at how nature does its awesome job at being so “neatly and methodically arranged”. Well, I must say, God is. Nature brings so many wonders of God and, therefore, we see beautiful things. Without being destroyed by the elements of this world; a calm, peaceful and a ship-shaped world will be experienced. Hence, let us take heed and act on being so orderly just as how God showed his orderliness thru His wonderful creation.

I will be showing different tones and colors of the sun as it paints the empty sky in the breaking of dawn and eventually fades away at dusk after it does an awesome work. Just a perfect example of showing Evanescent.
Every color depicts memories, whether it is happy, sad or extra sad. Memories that only one (you) can decide whether to let it fade together with the sun or to let it stay until it shows another majestic sky artwork the next day.
There’s always a new beginning and it always start the moment the sun shows it’s sparkle. We can always let these memories stay but do not forget to live. We can also choose to let it go and still live. Whichever way we choose, there’s always a choice. Make a good one, people!
when the sun starts to show off it’s beautiful color
when it’s up and wide awake while trying to paint the empty sky
when it’s still quiet and still doing it’s wonderful job of painting the sky
when it’s noontime and glaringly showing its power and grit
when it’s blue and starting to cool down
when the it’s about to say goodnight and anticipating a beautiful tomorrow
when it’s glow fades and nighttime comes
Oftentimes we incorporate a good match with a good pair of clothes, a beautiful couple, a happy family, a lovely friendship and many other things that would always compliment one from the other. But there’s more to life than just what I mentioned above. Here’s to a good match for me…
How about this? Sharing my Dunkin’ Donuts taro drink to a giraffe that does not even move? This is something new and weird!
And maybe an ice cream for a sandwich spread and finishing up with a salty Lays chips? Have you tried this before? Go ahead and try my so-called crazy weaknesses!
And of course my ever favorite time of musing and contemplation amidst life’s wiggles and waggles – watching the beautiful golden sunset with its promises of a beautiful tomorrow. Thanks to my perfect model in the picture. I captured the crisp setting of the beautiful sun.
Cheers to these other good matches in life!

As we all know, butterflies dance gracefully. They like to hop from one flower to another. They make our garden beautiful.

These photos were taken during a trip on a Christmas-New Year holiday to the West of Thailand. This is considered one of the biggest provinces in the West with extravagant hidden beauty inside it. A trip to Kanchanaburi is worth on the top list places to visit when in Thailand.
I’ll be featuring a place called Erawan Waterfalls – where you need to cross different paths going to the 7th level. You can play in the water as you go along the levels and of course enjoy beautiful scenery around. Koi fish roam around every level in the water. So, free foot and body spa. SPLENDID! Take some selfies and have fun.
a must see sunrise in Rayong, Thailand
This week’s challenge is all about Reflections. A crisp early morning is a good way to reflect the way how your day goes. I have always loved sunrises and even sunsets. It reminds me of how to start a good day and how to end it well.
It also reminds me of my God that never sleeps and never leaves His beloved. Indeed, He’s always there. I am thankful that it’s always shown in every sunrise I get to capture in my camera.
Bang Na Palace, Ayuthaya
And when I feel sad and really tired from everything I face in the world, I try to find a spot that exactly looks like this and I will feel refreshed. For sure, I’ll go home renewed.
Grace Baptist Church
But, when nature doesn’t help and I feel down and really troubled, I go to church to find God and seek peace and I always find Him there. He will whisper to me, “Don’t worry my child, I will take care of you.” Thank God, He’s always at my side. (FYI: it’s not good to go to church when you badly needed Him, it’s always good to be with Him every week 🙂 )
These are some of the ways I reflect at any situation I am in. It has always helped me. I must say, NATURE + GOD = PEACE.

I love N-A-T-U-R-E! I can’t pass by Cee’s challenge without joining. Nature is beautiful and I love everything about it.
