“Let your light shine before others.” . . (Matt. 5:16) – Nakakaiyak lang isipin na dati pinapangarap ko lang ang nararamdaman kong to. Yung tipong pag iniisip mo sya kay hirap na abutin pero minsan pala pag pinabayaan mo lang at marunong maghintay sa tamang panahon kung para sayo talaga ibibigay sayo.
