It’s a Sunday. And it’s time for another edition of Yo Momma Reflects (God Speaks to me). I love that I can get to share with you some of my own life’s experiences here in this blog. And I am glad that some if not many get to have their comments saying that they learned a lot from my posts. Thank you! And keep on keeping on.
This January, lots of things are going on in my head. Like:
What do I do with my life? How will I raise my child in the best way a mother can? Will I ever make it until he graduates from college? What’s the best diet pill on Earth? Will Allen ever propose to me for yet our Church Wedding? What am I going to prepare them for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner? How will I ever pay my pending debts?
It ranges in greater wavelengths, I know. A mind I have is a bit complicated. And im jealous of women I know who are very detail -oriented. Knows what they want and need for their family. Knows How and what to do and what to prioritize. It’s never getting into my head that way. I am easily swayed but what I see and how I feel about things, my thoughts and the people-pleaser that I am.
As I reflect, As I see and sit and watch my TV while Pope Francis is waving his hand to my fellow Filipinos, I can say it is true. God is real. That He is there.

This visit calls to mind what Jesus did as recounted in the Gospel. In Matthew 9:36, Jesus after “seeing the people, felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.”
And like the Good Shepherd of Whom he is the Vicar here on earth, the Holy Father saw the suffering of his flock. He felt compassion and comes to us bringing “the joy of the gospel” to revive our “drooping spirit” and to lead us to greener pastures (cf. Psalm 23).
The message the Holy Father brings with him challenges us to imitate Christ, the Good Shepherd, who is Mercy and Compassion.
I Can only imagine how it would be to show the world that I can do things I wanted to do. I want to make an impact to someone else’s life. I want to be the Hero. And Being a mom is one. Being a breadwinner is another.
A woman can only hold and keep so much endurance and strength. To give her all For the people that she cares a lot for.
For her family and her children. No matter what/who they may be. No matter what the odds may be.
She will do it.
In a way, in His eyes, I know and feel that – we are all equal. We are all the same.
We are Longing for his Compassion and never ending Unconditional Love.
Yes, it’s true. That if we just hold on to what we have and try to make the most out of it. We can surpass the strongest storms and the most destructive quakes.
What we can do for Love.
We can achieve greater things.
Yes, we are all God’s Children.
We belong to Him.
God Bless Us all and Viva Pit Senyor to all of you!
Viva Pope Francis!
Glory be to God!
