about this blog

Others want it hard, others semi-hard. A few have it poached from them. The rest wants the freakin’ cacophony of an omelette. As for me, I want it sunny side up – life, that is.

Bathroom Session No. 4 - Lead Me Lord

Death in the family is a concept I have never welcomed in my thoughts. For the past years of my life, I believed the lie that we are shielded against the world's great sorrows. True, we get major setbacks sometimes, but we always get by. At the end of the day, we always have each other.

The sudden death of a close cousin taught me to take care of myself - not just for self-centered,  aesthetic reasons, but for the people I love.

Kuya, may you rest in peace.




LEAD ME LORD
Gary Valenciano

Lead me Lord
Lead me by the hand and help me face the rising sun
Comfort me through all the pain that life may bring
There’s no other hope that I can lean upon
Lead me Lord
Lead me all my life

Walk by me
Walk by me across the lonely roads that I may face
Take my arms and let your hand show me the way
Show the way to live inside your heart
All my days, all my life

You are my light
You’re the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord I need You there
You are my light
I cannot live alone
Let me stay by Your guiding love
All through my life
Lead me Lord
