Crossing The Atlantic Ocean and God Was There

DSC00275

 

Castoro 10, an Oil Pipelaying Vessel was towed from Curacao to Congo on the 6th of August 2014. It was a month-long journey cruising the Atlantic Ocean and a great experience crossing the  Equator too. I was on board together with sixty-eight others.

There were mixed feelings , perhaps, when the trip started. We were travelling on a vast space of nothingness but still I have seen the beauty of life! A pair of doves was with us!

One morning before sunrise, the brown bird joined me in the helideck where I have started the day praying the rosary! Amidst the blue skies, floating white clouds, and the bright orange sunrise on the horizon of the dark blue ocean I realized it was a perfect day acknowledging the Author of the beauty of Creation.

It was so refreshing to feel the seabreeze and the splashing of the waves on the side of the ship made me felt really close to heaven. I could only thank God for the new day, another experience of His great love. He is indeed real and for the moment I knew with faith that I was sitting on His great Hands. I had so much joy!DSC00548

The Face of Love : 2500 Prisoners Dance Together

Sept 2009.This is it!  A moving video clip could mean that the good in every man, though evil  one may seem to be, may be awakened when proper treatment is given him..

Putting  faith into action, visiting those in prison maybe a good reminder that Christ is found when one meets Him in the lives of others…

 

Matthew 25:36

” I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me,I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

Hebrews 13:3

“Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those how are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

Ephesians 4:22-24
22You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
