Sometimes I wish we also have these four lovely seasons that some of our friends experience in other parts of the globe.

I love looking at those  fallen leaves and trees that turn gold to orange  to brown and other colors in between.  They fascinate me no end.  I have a friend who takes photos of every season she encounters. She said there is magic everywhere and like me, she loves Fall. She loves it when those trees bear their foliage in glorious colors and  everything turns into  a paradise of sort.  She loves walking and feeling the crisp morning air  communing with mother Nature. I could only shake my head, smile and wish I were there too walking with her.

We used to have an avocado tree in our backyard a few years ago. It gave us  lots of fruits and I even tried selling a sack of them to our friendly neighbors. Every morning around this time, I would sweep the yard of fallen leaves from the tree.  Those days that I used to spend in our garden while sipping a hot cup of coffee and  listening to the morning’s news on the radio while our dogs  lie serenely nearby are  priceless moments that I treasure. Our avocado tree is gone now but I still have two jackfruit trees and two calamansi trees  that I have to take care of.  Same ritual every morning, sweeping the yard and watering our plants.  And the closest thing that reminds me of the Fall season are the yellow and brown leaves that fall to the ground. Oh well,  one could dream, right?

Early morning last Saturday before Nissa’s family came over for breakfast, I harvested calamansi  (Philippine lime) for them to take home later. They  are in season now and I picked more than a kilo.  More than having fresh calamansi juice every day, it is also used as ingredient for dipping sauces, marinating  fish, pork or meat.  It has lots of vitamin C. I need not tell you the health benefits of the fruit, it has lots.

I love these October  days,  I am really not counting but I am looking forward to Christmas once again.

Have a blessed week ahead.

 Caleruega

He is the wind on your face that greets you every morning,

the gentle breeze caressing your cheeks.

He is the child with the toothy grin embracing you tight

and giving you  a hug.

He is these and more:

– the conscience in your crazy world

– the love that you feel in your heart

– the gentle and lovely flower by the wayside

– the laughter, the tears and emotions in between.

You trust and you believe

He will lift you up when you need a boost,

He will shelter you with love

And hold your hands so you won’t get lost in the crowd.

Loving, believing, trusting

Having faith that He won’t let go when you think you’re drowning.

He encourages you to rise up

No matter how many times you fall.

He says good morning with the glory

And beauty of a sunlight

He says good night with the wonder of the sunset

And the silver shimmer of moonlight.

He is, He is truly wonderful

He thinks you are beautiful

He thinks you are lovable

And the best of all –

He thinks you are worthy of His love.

You are lucky.

You are blessed.

You are loved.
