Sharing my insight on Prophetic lullaby for babies

I grew up exposed to worship hymns. My parents were members of a Catholic charismatic community and they had weekly worship services and activities that used a lot of these songs. Being musically inclined even as a child, I easily absorbed the melodies and more importantly, the words. Traditional hymns were heavily based on the scriptures and unconsciously, I had memorized numerous verses to heart. Music stays in the heart Years gone by and those verses never left me. That time, despite having read all the stories in the bible at a young age, I wasn’t aware that I had […]

Opportunities To Teach Through “The Bible”

We’ve been watching the first few episodes of History Channel’s The Bible. One episode showed how Israel had fallen in the hands of Babylon and how they killed the children and captured Daniel and his friends. We all know how brutal some of the scenes were. At one point, Pablo, our 7-year old son started to cry. He got scared at how Nabuchadnezzar had chased Judah’s last king, Zedekiah and how he had the sons’ throats slit. Is that going to happen to us, mom? He asked. I was tempted to just dismiss it as just a story and tell […]

Kasambahay Bill is now a Law

Kasambahay Bill is 2-way after all So, I’ve heard that the Kasambahay bill has now been made into a law. Many people have raised protests over the passing of the bill, seeing it as one-sided in favor of the helper (kasambahay).

But the number of abusive helpers is bigger, as far as I have experienced.   Just recently, a post has been circulating about a maid who pushed her employer down the stairs and smashed her head bloody with a […]

Christmas Traditions 2012: Homemade tree ornaments

I’m always on a look out for fun and interesting activities that we can do with the boys not only on Christmas but for the regular seasons, too. To date, we’ve made Christmas cards, gift wrappers, baked cookies, moulded chocolates and made pizza. We’ve also made dinosaurs out of play dough. I especially loved making homemade versions of playdoughs and fingerpaint. We’ve only started building our Christmas traditions 4 years ago. So far, we’ve been consistent in putting up the Christmas tree, bake night and reading and discussing the Christmas story. Last year, we made tree decorations following the book […]

LUNETA PARK, MANILA- MAKING ME EVEN PROUDER TO BE PINOY!

I’ve always wanted to see Luneta park for as long as I can remember. I guess I just never had the chance to go. It was easier for my siblings when they were young because my folks used to rent a house closer to it. I’ve seen the snapshots but what really got me curious was the story in one of my sister’s elementary textbooks. I remember that it described how Luneta had a huge map of the Philippine Islands made out in some sort of pond and that there’s this restaurant that only have mute servers. I had my […]
