Filipiniana Sketches

Sharing with you today some sketches with a Filipiniana theme.

This is my version of Manila's jeepneys. Nowadays you see jeeps with airbrushed faces of family members or proclamations of faith like "God saves".

I love our traditional attire - the maria clara and the barong. I always feel so special on occasions we wear these.

They're made of lightweight "cool" fabric with intricate embroidery. During the olden times, this was everyone's everyday wear.

Hope you enjoyed these. Have a stress free day today!

Oh and in case you're interested, I've started a new blog about my volunteer tutoring activities with children from underprivileged communities in the metro. Thats where i am going later.

Initially i just wanted a place to share the blessings of this service. I guess it will be a venue for people to learn more about it too.

If ever you want to do something to help them, just drop me a line. :)

Extra Grace Required

Today at church i said a quiet prayer for extra grace.

After a few moments September celebrants were called to the front for a special prayer and blessing! That's me!

That was a quick answer Lord! Thank You! :)

Mother Like No Other

An amazing woman is Blessed Mother Mary.

Many times when I am confused what best to do, i think "What would Jesus do?" then sometimes the situation could only happen to a woman. That's when "What would Mary do?" comes in.

She is truly a grace-filled woman that at the age of 14 she could give herself up totally to Gods plan. To entrust your whole future despite probable shame, alienation by everyone, maybe even stoning, is just wow!

It reminds me that if God sends you to it, He will bring you through it. Mary was found pleasing by God in her response. She was blessed by this response and so are we.

Mary, at the time of her "yes" to God could not have known the impact of her response to humankind. Sometimes we think that our choices and actions mean little but i reality they can not just affect you but others in a major way.

Happy birthday today Mama Mary! Thank you for your womanly example of discipleship and great faith. May more and more woman in today's world follow in your steps and draw nearer to the heart of God!
