Christmas Lantern

Christmas Lantern

It’s Christmas…the most awaited season throughout the year. The only thing that my hand fancied to draw is a Christmas Lantern. Here in the Philippines, Christmas lanterns are made of various shapes and sizes. (We call them “parol” in Tagalog) Most of them resemble the star of Bethlehem. Some look like twinkling flowers because of too many colors. But for today, I chose to draw a simple star-shaped Christmas lantern with no lights in it. It is the simplest you can find in our market and it’s more of an ornament that we hang on the walls.

I guess that lanterns just symbolize the light of Jesus. Where there is light, there you can find Him. In one way or another, we celebrate Christmas so that we can spread even a little of Jesus’ light and love to another person. Christmas would never be complete without the company of one or more people that you love. So, this Christmas make sure that you make at least one person feel important and loved.

Have a merry and blessed Christmas everyone! 🙂

One Flower

On a field of flowers a butterfly flew.
A gentle breeze passed by and gave an advice he never knew.

“Among all of the flowers just pick one,
Two is too heavy,
Three is too much,
More is impossible.
Love it, cherish it like there’s none like it.
Plant it and help it grow.
Never let it wilt, make the water flow.
For the love you give is also the love you will receive.
Soon you will have a flower field of your own.”

Heart on the Wall

Love yourself. Love your heart.
Love your own weakness. Love your own strength.
When no one else is there to care for you,
Take care of yourself.
So, share yours and another soul’s heart some love.
Then love will come your way. ♥

Angel of Love

I only have one heart to give;
Don’t pop it, don’t screw it, don’t ever kill it.
I made it safe for you to keep.
So please don’t ever make it weep.

Happy valentines day everyone! From my heart to yours~ 🙂 ♥
