As I prepare for my service to our Church as commentator*** today, I continue to seek the Holy Spirit‘s guidance.

Lector and Singer Prayers

Lector✌ & Church ♫Singer♪ Prayers | ***Courtesy Straight from the ♥Heart♥ … A †Prayer† Companion (Rev. Fr. Ladra, Marío José, 2007)

Dr. Grassi, in Guts, Grace & Gloryapproaches scripture like a linebacker* ~ so I’ll do the same, per these positions:

  • Stance ~ “starts with the right foundation”
Home Is Where the Heart Is

Our heart home was built on stone, which serves as a solid foundation for unwavering ♥love & faith✌ full of flowers + stores festive traditions every season!

So then, anyone who hears these words of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain poured down, the rivers flooded over, and the wind blew hard against that house. But it did not fall, because it was built on rock. But anyone who hears these words of mine and does not obey them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain poured down, the rivers flooded over, the wind blew hard against that house, and it fell. And what a terrible fall that was!

Matthew 7:24-27

  • Alignment ~ line up with the right people

Keep company with the wise and you will become wise. If you make friends with stupid people, you will be ruined.

Proverbs 13:20

Do not be fooled. “Bad companions ruin good character.”

~ I Corinthians 15:33  

Christ’s message in all its richness must live in your hearts. Teach and instruct one another with all wisdom. Sing psalms, hymns, and sacred songs; sing to God with thanksgiving in your hearts.

Colossians 3:16  

Tabernacle

The Tabernacle: The Blessed Sacrament

So Jesus said to those who believed him, “If you obey my teaching, you are really my disciples; you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

John 8:31-32

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

In ♥ & Soul, Higher Ed, Home Sweet Home, Pro-DiSPO, Public Interest, Relationships, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 04/15/2014 at 15:00

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.

20140415-094909.jpg

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!]

20140415-094929.jpg

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…

20140415-094938.jpg

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

20140415-095019.jpg

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.

20140415-095032.jpg

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.
