WOYWW: Of Awards and Saints

This is what I finished last night.
I need to do some "timing" to find out
how long it would take to make a background, the face, etc.
I am doing a workshop on Nov.7 and we only have an hour.
Possible? I'll find out!!!

Last week, my siblings and I attended
the SM Partner's Summit, an event to
celebrate 30 years of partnership with SM.

 papemelroti received the SM Green Retail Award,
along with Starbucks, Sanuk and Smart.
When Hans Sy congratulated me,
he said, "You are one of our pioneers!"
Yes we are! We were there when the first SM Mall 
opened its doors to the public in North Edsa 30 years ago.

"You are fellow citizens with the saints..." Ephesians 2:9
Saint Paul wrote this to the people of Ephesus, and I am sure if he wrote to us today, he would say the same thing. That we are fellow citizens with the holy ones, part of God's household. I could think I am no Mother Teresa who took care of the sick and dying, and who thought of herself as a little pencil in God's hand. I could tell myself I will never be a Pope John Paul II, a great man of God, who heard God call him as a young man, and followed Him to the Vatican, and helped bring down Communism. I'm not a Saint Francis of Assisi who left all his worldly goods to become a poor monk who built God's church at a time when it was crumbling. We may not be called to do something great, but like Mother Teresa, we can be God's pencil, and write what He wants us to write with our life. Nothing is impossible with God!

Joining the lovely Julia Dunnit for a 
peek at desks and projects!

I find a lot of inspiration
visiting my friends here:

  4. Congratulations on the award!
    Yes, we don't all have to do great tings. It's the little things we do for our Lord that are also important. Just being ourselves and being a witness just by trying to live a 'holy' life.
    Have a good week,

  5. Your artwork is beautiful!

    Greetings, Sofie #44
