This is a place of community to inspire and encourage one another as we nurture the children God has entrusted to our care.

Waking up from my slumber, getting right up again to write and share my story...

Mary's Memories

          In a few days, we are celebrating the greatest birthday of all, the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Just a while ago, I was prompted to revisit this blog which I haven't worked on for quite a while.  I started writing again on my other blog, to post meditations in preparation for Christmas.  What's resonating to me about this very special season is the two stories of obedience: the obedience of Jesus to the Father and the obedience of Mary to be the instrument of God to be His mother as He took on the human form.  Being a mother, as I reflect on Mary's obedience, accepting her role, leads me to my own assignment of motherhood.  Mary obeyed wholeheartedly to God's plan and purposes, not only in her  life, but the whole human race. Do I have the same heart for what role God has given me as a mom?  I want to share my favorite song that inspires me.  Just like Mary, God has plans for our children that we don't know.  All God wants from us is a wholehearted obedience to God.  Please click on the link below (Mary Did You Know) and prayerfully listen and let God lead us first to the love of our Lord Jesus Christ and then to our role as a mother in raising up a new generation that will continue to proclaim the Good News of Christmas...

My photo
Flawed. Broken. Wretched sinner. Forgiven. Embraced by the grace and love of God through Jesus Christ. I'm married for fourteen years with my artist husband Val and blessed with a fascinating son Gideon who's 13 years old and we reside in Illinois, United States. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Arts from the Royal Pontifical University of Santo Tomas in the Philippines Since then I've been in the Broadcasting industry, Marketing and Real Estate. I'm currently working in the Outreach Department of a faith-based not-for-profit Christian organization. I love journaling, gardening, reading,picnicking with my two boys in summer, enjoying nature and savoring the beauty that God made available for our consumption. But most importantly, before the sun sneaks out of the horizon, I love reading the Bible, praising and praying to the One who loves me and created me and gifted me to be more than what the eyes can see! ! I want to make sure I come up first before the rays come out and listen to what God has to say for the day! I live on purpose! Each day is a gift! Live it for Jesus!
