Isaiah 61 - i rejoice heartily in the lord, in my god is the joy of my soul
for he has clothed me with a robe of salvation, and wrapped me in a mantle of justice
like a bridegroom adorned with a diadem, like a bride bedecked with her jewels
as the earth brings forth its plants, and a garden makes its growth spring up
so will the lord god make justice and praise spring up before all the nations
totally love today’s readings! all of them!!! they remind me of simplicity, the simplicity that is the source of joy
life can be busy, aims and desires can be plenty
work can be taxing, and people can be demanding
worries can distract, relationships can be up, down, and all over the place
but these are not the source of your joy, god is, and remembering how faithful and good he has been to you is the joy of your salvation
struggling to feel joy? wondering why everyone seems so happy this season except for you? stop!!! take a moment to remember who god is
take a moment to step back and see, once again, all the wonderful things that he has done for you
there are so many (but try to at least think of three!! write them down if it helps)
keep following the star, even in the dark
reflect, recall, give thanks, and know joy!
New logo coming in strong!! the concept: finding a middle ground between sophistication and ruggedness,that's where i fall. the sweet spot between the two contrasting personalities communicated visually is a ligature of my initials, written in elegant copperplate calligraphy, animated in a fast-paced fashion.
The world’s greatest teacher award goes to.... jesus, for teaching us love.

Customized and designed a card to congratulate a dear friend who's gonna pop in about a month's time. drew out the scene she revealed to her family that she's pregnant, which is so cute and touching! may this card bring back memories when she looks at it many years later. #saybaby#babyshowersg#diycard#diycardsg#sgmom

that you may be children of your father in heaven. he causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Protégé sax ensemble logo mock up. client liked the aesthetics but didn't accept it for the actual tickets. accepted or not, presenting logos in the form of mock ups gives the client a better understanding of how the logo functions in real life.
Congratulations you two 👰🏼❤️🤵🏼

“love is patient, love is kind. it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. it does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 corinthians 13:4-7 niv
“we love because he first loved us.” 1 john 4:19 niv
This has always been on of my favorite parables... he is the vine.
december 15 | day fifteen | john 15:1-5 “i am the true vine, and my father is the gardener. he cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. you are already clean because of the word i have spoken to you. remain in me, as i also remain in you. no branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
i am the vine; you are the branches. if you remain in me and i in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
