A childlike disposition

How good is it to be a child once again? The innocence, the sincerity, the purity of intent. Today, we Filipino Catholics celebrate the "Feast of Sto. Nino" the child Jesus. And it reminds us one thing and that is how essential to have a childlike disposition.

  It becomes even more meaningful to me. My kid is scheduled to have his first Holy Communion this week. And all I ask for is His blessing - so he'll grow up in His likeness...and as childlike as he can be.

  1. I hope the First Holy communion went well.
    I had a First Holy Communion, and went to Catholic school. My parents divorce ended my life as a Catholic, but I treasure it as my foundation.

  2. I just want to say I love your art, people sometimes under estimate the power of a picture.
    beautiful work.

  3. Thanks Anita for always taking time to visit!
