Life is but a breath in the vast wilderness.
I got a text from one of my former classmates. She informed me that our two former professors died today. I was a bit shocked although I have already had idea what might have been the cause of their death. But I was saddened by the possibility that they did not accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior before they surrendered their last breath. I just hope they did; for if not, how painful it will be for the both of them.
I have long forgiven Villanueva for whatever pain he caused me during my Malikhaing Pagsulat days. He would criticize our works as if those were wastes. He even spoke to me words that affected me back then, hurtful words. But I have forgiven him. And even left inside the chest whatever he did or said in the past.
Life is but a breath in the wilderness. We invest on so many things although we understand that these are just temporary. One day, as God wills it, He takes it away from us for our hearts have gone astray, too far we have broken his heart. God is a jealous God.
To him who had that stubborn heart, I hope that before he died, he accepted Jesus for the salvation of his soul.
