Be the Light in Someone's Time of Darkness

First of all, I'd like to say thank you for everyone who dropped by and commented in my last posts. :D It means so much to me and I really appreciate all your comments. Plus, I really hope my art journal inspires you to make one or at least inspire you to be more creative in some way. Arts and crafts have been a passion of mine since I was a little kid so the art journal was something I really wanted to do. Plus I can't wait to read and look through it at the end of the year. :D Hahaha. 

(On another note, some of you commented on the fact that I wake up pretty early for church. Well it's cause we live like errr 100km (estimate) away from it so yea, we travel to go to church. It's literally three-four cities away from where I live. Hehehe.)

Now back to what I really was going to write about. Yesterday was amazing and fun. The prayer walk was fun and inspiring. After walking 10 minutes from church we finally reached the Jebels (rocky, desert looking - old golf course) and well, it was truly a special moment. The view, the fellowship of young believers, doughnuts, laughter - it was definitely a "God sighting"

I can feel spring in the air. Hehehe. Finally I can start wearing dresses without tights! Hahaha

Yesterday I fell in love. I fell in love with Rosy (one of the youth leaders adorable dog).
Yes, I am a dog lover. :)

I forgot to take a picture of the view *yess stupid moment* Hahaha. Luckily I had a photo of the Balajadia family with the amazing view. :D That little girl, is Bianca but I call her Bianchi. She's the cutest, most adorable girl I know plus I love her. Yes, I do love babies and kids.

That's my brother (yess that dude there, you can't miss him) and his group. :) They were the lucky ones who got to the top boulder/rocky places first.

And finally, pictures of my outfit. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take a picture of myself when we were at the Jebels. Boohoo. I really really wanted to.

blazer, Nexus at Centrepoint/Splash :: polo shirt, grabbed from brother's closet :: black top, Kashieca :: shorts, thrift shop at Glorietta :: tights, unknown :: jewelry, thrifted, Centrepoint.Splash and gifts

FYI, I'm a "frustated" person who wants to learn Photoshop . hahaha. I have yet to learn how to use Photoshop to its fullest capabilities but I am learning. This is something, that I thinked turned out pretty well. :) I thinkkkk..

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” - Maya Angelou

Have a great weekend/week everyone. Hugs & Kisses. Mwuahx!
