Boosters for Monday | Free Downloadable Pins

I had some pretty rough days last week but over all, it ended amazingly well through God's grace.  Indeed, His grace is enough for us! If you're following me on instagram (@ohhthatbytin), I posted some booster pins I made through pic-collage.  Feel free to download & share.

Have a great week ahead!


And ohh, look!  My cut orchids from two weeks ago are still vibrant.  See some of my tips on how to care for cut flowers (here).  I also did a DIY statement frame for my office desk.  If you want to get the "Grace" image, visit Pinterest/ohhthatbytin.

Now A Family Of Three


I'm so happy to see photos of the royal family, Kate, William & their new baby.  Children are absolute joy & blessing.  Congratulations! 

I wonder what they'll name the third man in line to the throne?

( UPDATE )  The royal baby is named as Prince George Alexander Louis.  He will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.  A very fitting name for the future king.

While I do share Senator Miriam's sentiments on who should get the limelight on SONA, part of the reason why I watch it is to see how our officials & their family wore our Filipiniana.

Some Thoughts Today: Kitty!


What to do when a monster tries to scare you?  Face 'em & laugh!

Ohh, just having one of those days I need to remind myself - I AM BIGGER than any of my circumstances, POWERFUL to face my situation, and DEARLY LOVED no matter what - cause greater is He that lives in me than he that is in the world.  I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR. 

Time to kick some butt.  Groar!

Whether, weather?


Despite of the drizzle, my mother-in-law and I went out for a walk this morning.  Whoohoo!  I felt very accomplished afterwards.  No more excuses this time.  I had my second thoughts earlier since my sister, my walking partner for the 2nd week now, slept in today.  Good thing my mother-in-law gamely agreed to walk with me.   When we saw the raindrops before we left her house,  it didn't bother her a bit and even offered to bring umbrellas.  Now that's what you call - determination.
