Mix of motherhood, writing, photography and homemaking

It took the author 7 years to finish this hand-written Bible.

If I have the luxury of time I would have done the same…perhaps. Writing down than just reading makes everything easier to understand. That’s how it has always been for me even when I was still a schoolkid. Jotting down or doing some scribbles as the teacher gives a lecture makes me remember better.

I’ve been studying the bible too since I entered first grade in school, of course, I do not have the same understanding then as now. I thank my teachers for instilling in me the love for the bible because now I recognized the truth the moment it approached me, I accepted it and it has set me free.

Memorial of Jesus’ death

Posted by on May 29, 2010 in Photo Hunt | 2 comments

Lifted from my other blog. (I wanted to post something else, something about my dad but I’d do that a few days from now.)

On the 14th day of the Jewish month Nisan, Jesus and his disciples were preparing for the Feast of the Passover. A feast celebrated for commemorating the event that happened to the Hebrews during their stay in Egypt, the last plague when all first born of the house who has no painted lamb’s blood on their doors died as opposed to those who did. (Exodus 11)

That same night, Jesus was arrested, then brought to trial and sentenced to death for blasphemy. After much abuse, he was taken to Golgotha, nailed on a torture stake and died for mankind like the sacrificial lamb of the earlier times used to redeem the people of their sins. As the Hebrew firstborns who put blood on their doors where saved, so it is the same today, believing in the blood of Jesus will give the believer…life.

So it is the same on that day of Nisan 14, the moon was shining fully…I am glad that I am able to participate in the memorial of Jesus’ death and was able to fulfill what he commanded: “This means my body which is in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” He did likewise respecting the cup also, after he had the evening meal, saying: “This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood. Keep doing this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” (1 Corinthian 11:24-25)

Yesterday was blue, today is black. I’m loving color themes.

Venice, a wondrous city of fairest carving, reflected in gleaming waters swirled to new patterning by every passing gondola…as one feminist wrote.

Addiction (Photo hunt)

I patiently wait for spring to come, as Hemingway once said; “Part of you dies each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintry light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen.”

True enough, spring promises so  many wonderful things to a photographer’s delight. On top of my list would be the cherry blossoms/sakura. This is my bit of Japan in Vienna.

Hi! Today I’m treating you to a favorite dessert of mine, Panna cotta (cooked cream). This delicate and sweet gel-o is made up of whipped cream and milk, here with strawberry sauce. There are many toppings and sauces one can use but as is, panna cotta is already awesome to the palate. Should you be interested for a recipe, pleaase click here. I wrote there how I enjoy this treat served with sweetened memories.

Fresh

(Sentosa, 06.09)

What could be fresher than a bottle of water after hours in the water? Ironic, even though you’ve been in the water you can’t drink it.lol. So here’s the little boy with his bottle  after tiring himself…swimming a bit, following daddy as he swims, searching for shells and jumping up and down! In those few hours, he was burned brown…well, freshly baked by the sun! 😉
