T is for …


How do you use your †ime, †reasure (i.e., tithing) and †alen† in serving GOD?


We all have unique ways that GOD has called us to serve Him and His people.

I also can continue glorifying GOD as I finish and use my doctoral degree!

Father Bob‘s most recent ✌PTL✌ in his latest greeting to me stands for:

  • Precious
  • Treasure
  • Lady

¡Feliz Día de los Santos y Día de los Muertos!


Spirit Sunday: World Missions

Mission is a passion for Jesus and at the same time a passion for people.

Pope Francis

Let’s follow Chris†‘s example by serving others ~ regardless of mistakes along the way (like my off-tune ♪singing♫ at Church yesterday) ~ as our fai†h will always prevail, our missions won’t fail!


World Mission Sunday

Send me forth each day, O God,
to announce Your peace, love,
forgiveness and joy to all the earth. Like the Samaritan,
help me be a good neighbor.Like the Centurion,
help me confess my faith.Like the Beloved Disciple, help me to be a bold
and faithful witness to Your Resurrection.

All the world deserves to hear Your Good News.
Help me proclaim and live it today.

April Showers☔️ bring:

MORE May Showers! ⚡️

  • AND May Flowers! 🌼

My dad grows beautiful blossoms🌸 in his 🌳garden. Now they’re in full 🌺bloom. This is great timing⏰ with my mom’s 🎈celebrations🎁 this month.

After Mother’s Day, Mami Aya asked Papa Jun not to give her anymore 🌹roses. She meant flowers in general, but since she wasn’t clear…

He gave her calla lillies for her birthday! 🌻

While my Nanay appreciated his always kind gestures, she passed along the bouquet💐 to someone more deserving …


#PayItForward ☝️💸🏆

Thirsty Thursday: May = Month of Mary 

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Home Sweet Home, Public Interest, Relationships, Thirsty Thursday, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 05/21/2015 at 08:20

Happy Belated 🎂Birthday🍰, Bishop Mike

While everyone all over the 🌍world🌏associates May with 💐Mother’s Day, this whole month is devoted to our Blessed Mother, Mary.

Artwork by my Blessed Angel: Faithful Felicity

As my Church💒 celebrated the Coronation👑 of our Queen Mother (the fifth Glorious Mystery 🙏 of the 🌹Rosary) at our recent Corpus Christi🌴 Procession👣 (in which my bestie, 🎈Birthday🎁 Girl Evie crowned her last year), we remember her as the faithful woman with the Immaculate 💝Heart.

Mary of Galilee is the epitome of Pro-LIFE. Despite being unwed to Joseph at the time of the Immaculate Conception, she still followed GOD’s will upon the Annunciation👼 (the first Joyful Mystery🙏 of the 🌹Rosary) and gave birth to the LORD JESUS👶 (the third Joyful Mystery).

Holy Mary, like parents who experience the tremendous ♥heartache of outliving their children, encountered not just burying her child, but also the anguish of witnessing her own flesh and blood being condemned to death (the Sorrowful Mysteries🙏 of the 🌹Rosary).

The Mysteries of the Rosary: Joyful * Luminous * Sorrowful * Glorious

Not only is the Virgin Mary the prime example of motherhood, she also exemplifies selfless service to GOD☝️ as the chosen one to be the mother of CHRIST. She is known by many names, including from her apparitions:

👑Queen of Mercy 

👑Queen of Peace ✌️

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Our Lady of Fatima

Our Lady of Lourdes

Our Lady of Manaoag

Our Lady of Perpetual Help


👼 Hail Mary full of Grace! ☝️
