Two-Day Game Warning: Almost the End of Regulation!

Announcement Maze with CardsIMG_8296Announcement with Photo Credits

As I approach my Big Day (Public Dissertation Defense) to complete my Doctor of Philosophy, my journey toward this ultimate goal may be drawing to a close while my next one toward my career advancement will begin.

However, my Ph.D. pursuit has helped me grow, not just professionally, but also personally, and most of all: spiritually. Furthermore, this undertaking couldn’t have been accomplished single-handedly: GOD’s grace provided, JESUS’ example was all-sided, and the HOLY SPIRIT’s light guided, in addition to Team Dr. D, who had my back. I forever will be grateful to the †Heavenly HOLY TRINITY† and my positive supporters here on Earth, who’ve rooted me on all the way, leading up to this Tuesday, December 8 ~ save-the-date!

My next anticipated title this AdventTita Elaine.

We expect my future niece or nephew to arrive around CHRISTmas time ~ the very 1st grandchild of my parents, who recently celebrated their ♥wedding♥ anniversary.  Yes, my family is very blessed. Regardless of these joyous times, I pray that we’ll always turn to the LORD, as we lead our lives here while preparing our eternal home in Heaven.

Sending peace and goodwill to San Bernadino, CA, in the wake of this terrorist tragedy. ✌

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!

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!

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)

Like the Child †JESUS, we can have childlike faith.

Santo Niño

Santo Niño: I received this beautiful †Sto. Niño† from my ♥beloved♥ Nanay Betty for my 11th Birthday

That is what Father Joey pointed out during his homily at our Santo Niño Mass this past Sunday.

If we reflect on Presentation  and Finding of †Jesus† at the Temple (the fourth and fifth Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary), then we can somehow imitate this kind of faith in †GOD† before anyone else.

Ms. Easygoing EVIE shared the story about Advent & the candles’ significance with our Catechism class!

 Therefore, †CHRISTmas† is about giving to others, as a gesture of ♥LOVE♥ of †GOD†’s people ~ as if we were doing this for †JESUS† Himself.

Our R.E. student, Delightful DANIELLA, generously gave us this beautiful gift! We our blessed with our little angels!
