Beautiful Morning

"I fought all through the night
Oh, oh, but I made it alive
The sun's starting to rise
Oh, oh, these are beautiful times"

Struggle and overcoming are parts of life. And we see it, and we think it is beautiful. Especially as people who follow God, we are faced with trials. It is hard, but at the end of the day, we see it and see the story as beautiful.

I've always thought how a people greet each other in the morning gives a hint on their outlook in life. When we say, "Good morning," it gives me the impression that what we strive for in life is a comfortable life. A happy life. But we don't say, "Good morning," in the old language, do we? "Magandang umaga" is "Beautiful morning." We want a life not devoid of struggles, but one of triumph. Our greeting sounds like the breaking of the dawn after a difficult night. The first ray of sunshine after a storm. It's not comfortable. But it is beautiful in an overcoming sense. And personally, over merely a comfortable life, I would wish you a beautiful one, a triumphant one, a story-worthy one. So, friends, magandang umaga sa inyong lahat. :)

"And sincerely, I love You dearly.
Oh, but I'm clearly destined to wander."
