Motivational Monday: †Jesus Christ†

What better role model on Heaven and on Earth do we have out there than †JESUS CHRIST† Himself?

Stations of the Cross

My R.E. students went through the Stations of the †Cross† to have an idea of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice

The man died for our sins and sits at the right hand of GOD. So much for American Idol and wherever else ~ we have our Ultimate Universe Idol!

Evie's Palm Cross

Ms. Easygoing Evie made the perfect palm †cross† at our Passion ☼Sunday☼ Vigil

During Lent, I read Killing Jesus by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard.

Killing †Jesus†

Killing †Jesus†: History (O’Reilly & Dugard, 2013) — NY: Holt.

  • It made more sense out of scripture, as well as provided vivid descriptions based on the authors’ own first-hand observations of the Holy Land sites and their extensive research

Last Supper †Cross†

  • It humbled me to the point that I contemplated and appreciated the crucifixion even more (I actually teared up when I sang ♪Were You There♫ as cantor at Palm ☼Sunday☼ Mass)

Holy Week

†GOD† ✌bless you✌ on this †Holy† Thursday!

As we observe The Last Supper, and as some candidates prepare for their First Communion, here is some inspiration:

Beauty Tuesday: Starring Rose Gold + Holy Week & Easter Sunday Best Dress Ideas

There is beauty in uncertainty.

I read that in Rediscovering Catholicism, and this is a revelation that I’ve never considered before. I tend to plan, as I’ve pointed out in Beauty Tuesday: My AM Routine, at least a week in advance and even as far back as a month ahead of time. However, I’ve tried to let go and go with the flow…

Meanwhile, I must share my IT bag for Spring: this white vachetta Guess? handbag with studded handles and rose gold hardware ~ the bow and heart charms won me over when I first spotted it out at Dillard’s (my mom’s favorite store) at the end of January.

Two decades ago when I was in junior high, Guess? (which was established the same year I was born) was all the rage: think Wayne’s World featuring Claudia Schiffer {sha-wing}; I wore Guess? everything, not just limited to jeans: bags, shoes, even my suede jacket!]

Since I felt triumphant for reaching my most recent milestone for my dissertation, I convinced my mom to reward me with it, so this tote is special because it symbolizes my progress.

The color makes this pick very versatile for any outfit…

Plus, I have an array of accessories to mix and match with it, from rose gold jewelry, to bow and hearts.

My new purse will be sweet to bring to church with me on Easter Sunday, and I actually debuted it at the Adoration Chapel, where I brought the Oblate Missions prayer book from my mom, the Lady of Manaoag prayer book from J-Rob’s mom, Rediscover Catholicism, and my ministry workbook.

While I have my Easter ensemble ready to wear, I have other ideas on this most glorious of days of the year (with CHRISTmas being the most joyous ~ if you know the Rosary Mysteries, you’ll have an idea of what I mean). Bright colors and fun prints to commemorate this beautiful season is definitely the way to go, such as the pastel paisley patterns from these dresses that I bought in México before I moved.

Easter Idea {turquoise/multi-colored paisley beaded dress from México, floppy straw hat w/pink flowers from H&M in LV, straw sandals w/pastel acrylics from Hallmark}

Easter Cat

Happy †Easter☼ ♥Asia & Me {black cross & beaded earrings & necklace set + purple embroidered shawl + blue/multi-colored paisley beaded dress from México}

Meanwhile, here was my look for Palm Sunday, when I was the lector for Mass in the longest reading of my church ministry: olive green to represent the Mount of Olives.
