It   has  been three years since this conversation happened and in many ways I could never explain,  I have become more at peace when the only reason I pray is to give thanks.

Have a blessed Friday, everyone.

tamaaaah. there's so much ado about religion, too many stifling moral standards -- and yet at the end of the day, what really matters is how we lived our lives, how we helped our brethren, and how very passionately we loved. (dapat may love talaga, eh no? LOL)

a blessed good friday to you, master Mugen!

prayer, i think, is more on "me listening" than "me talking."
