I once went to DMV to renew my license, it was late afternoon as I sit there waiting nothing do I just glance at every teller.

When my number was called, I went immediately to the teller assigned to me as I approached the window I saw her face glowing.

I couldn’t stop telling what I had seen.

I told her you are glowing. she stopped doing what she is doing and told me thank you I needed that.

After my papers was done my heart is telling me something, pray for her which I did. She was happy about it and her eyes glowed more.

Wow inside my car I reflected on it. Oops. What if that person is sensitive and took it negatively to what I have done i could have been I trouble. I said it’s ok and left.

It all happened for a reason only God’s knows. I just followed.

Me Praying in Kaiser October 2019.

Went for a doctor check up in Kaiser. Again waiting for my turn to be called. I turned to the person on my side and asked her.

Hi how are you what made come here. She said about her pain and next thing I asked her so where are you from and where do you go to church then can I pray over you which I did upon her approval. She told me she believes in the healing power of prayers.

She was so happy as I did. As we depart she asked me, are you converting me. Nothing to say I just said I just did followed my heart. I smiled and left.

Now I could see her glow.

I know she got my message.

Glowing face like an angel

I attended a recent concert of Cecille Azarcon.

That concert was very special for me because her songs has inspired and help me in my spiritual growth.

Lift up your hands to God sang by Basil Valdez was my favorite.

As I waited in the lobby there was a lady whose face I noticed was glowing. I just told her your face is glowing.

As she look at me and I panicked not knowing what to say.

You look very spiritual then my sister Jeanette greeted her and hug her. They were close friends from San Francisco.

Well I would not be surprised. She got a lot of friend from the carpool lane.

We went out took some pictures with some celebrity singers and as we parted she told me she just went to Holy Land.

I invited her to attend a seminar on holiness for the next day in Saint Vincent. She told me she has a prior commitment to serve the homeless at Saint Vincent in San Francisco.

She invited me to go to Lourdes someday as a volunteer. Hmmm. God made my day.

Went home with a big smile.

This is another spiritual journey for me.

Before this concert, I got to know the story about her Songs. It all about Jesus

What make us glow

I kept on asking myself what makes people glow and the Lord answered my prayer.

It was almost two months and my hands is not yet healed from my tennis Elbow.

I felt frustrated because apart from this pain, it seems I cannot get all my paper work done for my medical leave.

Heart broken, I cried it out, to let go of my anxiety, to let go of my burdens.

My physical therapist told me stories about some people who actually is even worse.

She said about her experiences in coping of letting go of burden in her past job.

Then told her stories of my work in the philippines. My experience working in the community , with the homeless my accomplishments….

After which she told me.

John you see now you are glowing.

That afternoon I watch a show about healing.

The man said. To have to tried to look at things positively.

As you wake up in the morning be glad even for your trials and pain. Thank God,

It changed me, now I am smiling to the fullest and I thank God for that.

Yes God is real
