Today, I receive all of God’s love for me. Today, I open myself to the unbounded, limitless, overflowing abundance of God’s universe. Today, I open myself to God's blessings, healing and miracles. Today, I open myself to God’s Word so that I become more like God every day. Today, I proclaim that I’m God’s Beloved, I’m God’s Servant, I’m God’s Powerful Champion, And because I am blessed, I will bless the world, In God’s Name, Amen.

AMANPULO


AMANPULO PALAWAN PHILIPPINES- So near and yet so far! Ordinary mortals like you and me could only dream staying in this place which they described as 
A private island, where sea and sky meet as one, where velvet white sand is caressed by the lap of crystal water, where palms bow to vermillion bougainvillea in tropically kissed vegetation, where nature’s hand streaks the sun’s iridescences on its unbridled canvas, where night skies are admired beside the crackle of a ‘tepee’ beach fire, where sleep is submerged in pristine white, where luxury is defined by its earth-given beauty, where peace embraces its island host. This place is Amanpulo, in thePhilippines, a realisation of a dream.

My Lucky friend L is a living testimony that nothing is really impossible in this world! Here is some of her snapshots in AMANPULO...

OH WHAT A LOVELY VIEW OF THE BEACH!! THE PHILIPPINES IS REALLY BLESSED!
Amanpulo rests on the Pamalican Island, about 360 kilometers southwest of Manila. Seven square kilometers of reef surround the island.
She took this photo on board a chartered plane that took them to AMANPULO PALAWAN from MANILA.  Guests fly directly to Pamalican Island in a 19-seat, twin engine turboprop, landing at the resort's private airstrip. Flight time is one hour.
Dry Season usually runs from November to May and the wet season with scattered rain showers from June until October.

 Special credits to L Thanks for the wonderful pictures and story! If not for your photos and first hand experience I would not be able to come up with this article my dear friend L.
