Faith, Love, and Basketball ♥

Last Sunday was special, as every day is when spent with the people you love. ♥
From the celebration of the Holy Eucharist to watching two epic basketball games, God's message was consistent. And I heard it loud and clear. Four letters. One word. PRAY.

Let's begin with the Gospel (Luke 11:1-13):
Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples." 
He said to them, "When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread and forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test."
And he said to them, "Suppose one of you has a friend to whom he goes at midnight and says, 'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey and I have nothing to offer him,' and he says in reply from within, 'Do n…

Adulting 101: Financial Management (Basic Savings Account)

One of the things I'd like to accomplish before I turn 30 is to have a legit personal savings account. For years, it seemed an impossible dream due to the fact that I don't earn that much.

Beautiful July 💕

U: July na! P: Use July in a sentence.  U: ??? P: Why did JULY? It's bad. Don't do it again.
One of the things I love most about Paolo is his intelligence/sense of humor. To some (or most 😁), his jokes are the corniest, but to me, they're the funniest. Define love. Hahahaha. 😂
Actually, I love the fact that he really tries his best to make me feel lighter, and better, every single time. 
Here's another proof of how genius this man is:

This, among other little things, makes my life beautiful. 💖
Today is the start of a new month. And I have a new side hustle (hooray!). I know more beautiful things await me because I have a generous and loving God who wants nothing but the best for me. 😊
So yeah, as the second half of the year unfolds, I am getting myself ready for new opportunities, pleasant surprises, and answered prayers. 😃
I am excited as I declare today, it's going to be a BEAUTIFUL JULY!!! 👊👌👍💖💕
