General Conference Study Journal: The Sabbath Is a Delight

After so long that I have not study the scripture, I browse my General Conference Study Journal.
I'm into tears that I have remember all the feelings I had when I study those talks and wrote it down in my journal. I've realize how lovely it was. I feel really fascinated of my journal.
And why I stopped? That is my question.
Work has been the major factor why I did not find time to study again. 

And so, I recommit myself to study again. I'm in love with my journal again.
I wanted to be in love with them again and again. 

This talk has injected to me for 3 months and finally I have recovered. 

I had so much realization. Everyday seems like their is something I'm always guilty about. 

After reading, studying, pondering and writing, I desired to keep the Sabbath Holy and also make it a DELIGHT!

The speaker's said and my thoughts is my way to ponder things. When I write what the speaker's have said, sometimes I can't write my thoughts right away. I have to ponder what he have said. It's an everyday pondering until I get what he means, until I feel the spirit whisper's to me what it means.

I'm so much thankful for this talk. I'm excited to share this study page to you.

Family History Tree Art

First of all, I would like to THANK YOU! for viewing my Family History Binder. It was my most viewed post I had. Since then, I thought I should update but I don't know what happened. It has been years.. 

The good news is, even though how hard it is to research my family history, I have progress! :-) And here you can see it in my FAMILY HISTORY TREE ART.

This is my first page of my Family History Binder. Here I planned to print my thumb for every name that has completed their temple ordinance. And so, finally, here it is. 

This TREE is a free download from ONEFABDAY. She shared this for wedding day ideas but I thought this is great for my Family History Page. She is so nice to give it for free. Thank you for ONEFABDAY!

Things to do:

1.) Go to ONEFABDAY. Print the Tree template in A4 Size. 

2.) I used Acrylic Paint instead of ready made stamps with three colors because I can't find them here in my place. But I have sponge and put some acrylic paint on it (sometimes we have to use our wildest creativity).

3.) Gather all your Temple Cards. Count all the Blue, Pink and Yellow Cards respectively. Blue is for Male, Pink is for Female and Yellow is for Couple Ordinance. 

4.) Once you have the numbers for each color, start printing your thumb marks! :-)

5.) Color the tree to make it more beautiful. 

I already have so many names gathered in my research but only few have been completed for the temple ordinances because some needs more information in order to be requested. So, our family history work won't stops here... we have to continue to find information in order for them to quality for the temple ordinance. 

Family History Statistics:
Male - 15
Female - 9
Couple - 8

I felt how important each of the names because they are not just names. They are part of my family. And also, this is not just about the numbers, this is to encourage me that I still have a work to do... Let us find joy in redeeming the dead!

Grateful for My Unseen Father!

Last night, I was preparing for a special treat for fathers this coming Sunday because it's Father's Day. I invited the Sister Missionaries for this simple project at home. 

I've been using the T-Shirt Origami before on Father's Day but now I going to use a Tie.

You'll need: 
Neck Tie
 Black Cartolina
Correction Pen for writing
Permanent Marker White

First, I made a pattern from my husband's tie. The tie is already tied. I pulled the tie at the back to level the length and get the length I wanted. 
Second, I cut it. 
Third, I write and design. 

I asked the missionaries to write and design on the ties I made. At first it was easy to make a message for fathers.. but later on we're running out of what to say for them. We thought that we could right a message for our own father. And then, I became a little bit emotional (without noticing the sisters that i felt sad). 

And I came up with this! (which made me think more about my father)

I was thinking that if he was just beside me, He will be too protective to me. And being with him will be comfort and safe...

I haven't seen him since I was two. And of course I could not remember things from him in that age. :-) My mother just tells me good and bad things about him.. I think it's normal. 


I wanted to be grateful for my father. And truly, I'm grateful for Heavenly Father for my father. Even though I haven't met him. He has given me a legacy of good attributes and looks?? :-) (Isn't it obvious?) 

Even if my quest to find him for my family history is frustrating and disappointing, I won't give up but just be grateful always. In my heart, I feel that I love him.

And fourth, wear it to your loving father. I'm planning to use a tape or to use a string. 

I'll let you know what happen this Sunday. :-) I'll update you with photos! Promise! :-)

UPDATE:  Here is the promise photo with fathers wearing their neckties! :-)

Happy Father's Day to all your fathers!
