Bacolod/ Iloilo Portrait Services: Step by Step Colored Portrait

“With courage and joy, I pursue my life with celebration and creativity.”

This above Declaration wouldn’t be made possible without God’s guidance in my year of 2017 Jubilee and this girl’s timely intro into my life. 🙂 She and God just released so much grace and celebration into my life.

This is my second colored portrait. The first one is a pastel and colored pencil on felt. It is a self portrait back in 1996. There’s so much heaviness in making art so much that this is the next one and so much grace flows I easily finished it! I believe God has really provided so much healing and restoration in my heart. Of course wht made it easier is I’m inspired hehehe.

Morning Devotions: Coffee or the Cup on Easter

Life Begins Here

Yesterday, while I was visiting a Christian bookstore, I saw this guy, probably a pastor, dressed well, ask for a King James Bible. But more than asking, he was babbling that Christians have been dabbling and changing the verses. That would have been okay but the message was, you mister bible sales guy have to agree with me. He was probably a conservative.

For most of my life, I have tried to change the world according to my world view. So when God reveals His plan for all mankind, Star Wars – Return of the Jedi style, I couldn’t help but imagine that when I share the gospel with people, they all look at me with eyes glazing and say “that’s awesome.” Continue reading

180228 Vision: the Curse of Cain

180228 Vision: the Curse of Cain

As I was worshiping, a thick presence of the Lord fell upon me and His love surrounded like a cloud. And then the voice started.

“I know you since you were born, I knit you together in your mothers womb.” Then all my concerns came back to me as the declaration of the worship song flooded my mind. “I am no longer a slave to fear.” Then God reminded me of so many situations that fear is overpowering in my life.

10 Things I learned from Drei: What a Future Dad Wants to Know

Would you believe that in high school, I only wanted to marry a girl but never want to have children?

Yes.

Younger Carefree Me

Younger Carefree Me – cant find any hilarious me pic. Sorry Ghe, haha!

I dread having to wash soiled laundry, wake at every hour in the morning, keep all 2 hands occupied (not being able to defend myself for any ninja or terrorist attack) and eat half-consumed food – a simple glimpse of a sanitized, single and carefree me. But as I grew older, I matured and learned to see differently.

I yearn to be a dad.

Iloilo-Bacolod Fastcraft and Ship Travel Schedule 2017

Guimaras Adventure on the Highest Seas

The city of Iloilo has become on of the must-visit places in the country. With the growth of its Business Process Outsourcing (BPO – Call Center industry) and the blossoming of its coastal river paradise, it has become a magnetic attractor of tourist. I have seen it grow from my arrival here at 2014, with over  20 couples from Manila and all over the country relocating here. All for good reason.

A stone’s throw away from Iloilo is Bacolod City, an equally majestic city with a Continue reading

A Prayer of Thanksgiving


Then the word came again to me:

“Before I formed you in the womb, Ian, I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
Jer1:5

Ian, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
Jer 31:3

Lord thank you that before I was born, you have set me apart. You know me when I was conceived in my mother’s womb. You breathed me life and set me out into the world.

Lord thank you that you have watched over my life through challenges and even dangers, you were keeping me for something special.

Lord thank you that you have been loving me for a thousand years. You prepared all my teachers, friends and mentors. And then I met you Jesus.

Thank you that through the ups and downs of my life your love has never waned. Thank you for inviting me into your family. Thank you for preparing a feast before me and dine in your presence.

Thank you Jesus.
