An Opportunity to be Blessed!

Here’s an opportunity to be blessed- the Ligaya ng Panginoon prison ministry group in the QC jail were tasked to sponsor a mass on Thursday, December 17, 4pm, and to give out 250 gifts and merienda for the prisoners after. We’re looking to give each inmate a pail with cover with stuff inside. The pail is so that they have a place to put their things. The inmates have to use the big paint pails for lockers because there are no cabinets for a majority of the inmates. We want to put soap, shampoo, toothpaste, face towel, canned goods, shirt, towels, etc. inside. So if anyone has connections to companies who would be able to donate ,we would appreciate if you give us where to write or if you could facilitate yourself, that would be most appreciated! Of course any donation, no matter how small is appreciated. Pls bring to any papemelroti branch (no money pls) and label for prison ministry.

Cash donations are welcome too. I can email my gcash or bpi accounts and even try to pick it up.

Let us outdo each other in doing that the least may be blessed..and God glorified in our works!

Thanks and God bless!

Effects of the leading insect repellant vs. Bioneem or Citronella

  • DEET is the active chemical ingredient in most insect repellents available in the United States.
  • It is used to repel such biting pests as mosquitoes and ticks-including ticks that may carry Lyme disease.
  • DEET was registered in the U.S. for the general public to use in 1957.
DEET is the active ingredient in the leading insect repellant in the Philippines. Spray or apply it to the smooth surface of a styro cup and wait to see what happens. After awhile the styro cup will not longer be smooth but corroded. This is what deet does to your skin and body as well. Can you imagine what prolonged use can do?
Compare this to Bioneem or citronella bug spray that does not change the styro cup.
Read up below...

To DEET Or Not To DEET, Compelling Issues Draw Consumer Attention
By David Shaw CEO, Quantum, Inc.

DEET has been proven to enter the bloodstream through application to the skin, and while many people use DEET-based products without incident, others have suffered side-effects ranging from rashes and hives to uncontrollable twitching and muscle spasms to death. Children seem especially susceptible to DEET problems. In 1995 alone, the National Poison Control Center in Washington, DC. received over 6,700 reports of repellent exposure, including one death, and of the 6,700 reports, two thirds occurred in children age six and under.

The biggest media jolt came when ABC's PrimeTime Live did a twenty minute segment on DEET. The public began to pay serious attention, and companies like ours began to see very strong product movement. PrimeTime's report focused on particularly dramatic incidents that highlight the dangers. The program told the stories of Tim Christiansen, who at 26 years old died after using DEET twice one summer day in 1994; on Elijah Harrison, an 8 year old boy who's mother sprayed him with a 25% DEET product once a day for two days - he still suffers from seizures; and on workers in the Everglades National Park who experienced rashes, dizziness and numbness of the lips after using a DEET repellent.

Think about this the next time you spray the leading brand on your child......

IMPORTANT FACTS you should know!

The following harmful ingredients may be found in your personal care, hygiene and beauty products! by Shelley Kramer

I encourage you to check out the labels in your hair, skin, body, dental and personal hygiene products and beauty cosmetics. Be sure you know about the hidden carcinogens and harmful ingredients in them!

Over the last 100 years, the rate of cancer in the U.S. has sky-rocketed from 1 out of 800 people diagnosed, to 1 out of 3 today. Are you wondering why? We have some answers.

Ralph Nader; consumer advocate, forwarded from the book "The Safe Shoppers Bible" written by Samuel Epstein, MD and David Steinman, MD:

"Consumers receive little guidance from product manufacturers, whose advertising and labeling are too often misleading and not objective sources of information. Government also offer little guidance. Indeed, while many local, state and federal government agencies are entrusted with protection of the public health, most have failed to assure consumers that they are being adequately protected, or that they are being provided with full, if any, label disclosure of carcinogenic (cancer-causing), nuerotoxic (causing damage to the nervous system), or teratogenic( birth defect-causing) chemicals in their household products.

The Safe Shoppers Bible goes on to suggest: "Read the lables in your Shampoo, Deodorant, Toothpaste, Moisturizer, Facial Cleanser, Shaving Cream, Bubble-bath & other personal care products. You will most likely find some of the harmful 0- carcinogenic ingredients in the products you are using now!"

List of Carcinogens from the US Government Offices


Called a humectant in cosmetics, it is really " industrial anti-freeze" and the major ingredient in brake and hydraulic fluid. Tests show that it can be a strong skin irritant. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) on Propylene Glycol warn to

avoid skin contact as it is systemic and can cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage.


First report on carcinogens from the US government: Coal and Mineral Oil

Comes from crude oil(petroleum) used in industry as metal cutting fluid. May suffocate the skin by forming an oil film. Helathy skin needs to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. This process should not be inhibited.Holding large amounts of moisture in the skin can "flood" the biology, and may result in immature, unhealthy, sensitive skin that dries out easily.


Same properties as Mineral Oil, Industrially it is used as a grease component.


Potentially, SLS is perhaps the most harmful ingredient in personal-care products. SLS is used in testing-labs as the standard skin irritant to compare the healing properties of other ingredients. Industrial users of SLS include: garage floor cleaners, engine degreasers and car
wash soaps. Studies show its danger potential to be great, when used in personal-care
products. Research has shown that SLS and SLES may cause potentially carcinogenic nitrates and dioxins to form in the bottles of shampoos and cleansers by reacting with commonly used ingredients found in many products. Large amounts of nitrates may enter the blood system from just one shampooing.

SODIUM FLUORIDE (MSDS)- used as rat poison, do you want it in your toothpaste?


diethanolamine, triethanolamine, sudsing agents, known carcinogens, seen on CBS News in 1998.

BENTONITE or KAOLIN - clays in foundations that may clog and suffocate the skin.


Draws moisture from inside the skin, and holds it on the surface for a better "feel". Dries skin from the inside out. Listed on MSDS as hazardous.

TITANIUM DIOXIDE (MSDS)- now FINALLY declared a carcinogen, 2001


Derived from animal skins and ground-up chicken feet. Both of these ingredients form films that may suffocate and over-moisturize the skin. BAR SOAPS made from animal fat and lye may let bacteria feed and grow in it. May corrode and dry skin.

God is alive in the QC Jail!

We were pleasantly surprised at how vibrant and alive the prayer meeting was in the QC jail!
They have their own music ministry complete with drums, guitar and trumpet. They sang so loud and straight from their heart I cried!
Bro.Boy who leads the prayer mtg. puts me to shame with all the bible verses he has pilipino pa!
We had a video showing of Joel Osteen from his weekly podcast titled " Living Breakthrough Minded".
Going there made me realize why God wants to bless them - not only spiritually but also materially. He wants to show them that He will answer their prayers for provision! I feel so privileged that God can use me to bless them....all of us to bless them!

We brought with us donations of 120 bibles, merienda and the 1st batch of polo shirts
and pants. They still need more polo shirts and pants. Most of their waist size is 28" to 32"- payat but anything will do. They are not picky. They even wear the girls petron uniform! They were sitting on the 52 chairs we brought- also from donations! Two of them got prizes for memorizing Ps23. I would have wanted to take more pictures but it's actually bawal. Patsy just sneaked this one.

Thanks so much to all those who rummaged through their closets! To all the rest PURGE NOW! and make an inmate happy. Remember, what you do for the least of your brethren you do unto HIM! God bless!

Some of my work...bead jewelry made of stones, glass beads, metal charms and spacers.

Rockin' Josh

This one is for my nephew Josh. He got a rock band (or is it guitar hero?) from his parents. I tried the drums and found it quite hard. You have to invest a lot of time to get good at it. It was the main event of his birthday party. I hope the verse will be written in Joshua's heart if he sees it often!

Fashionista Elyse

This is my happy birthday elyse collage card. elyse is a bag collector and likes fashion stuff.
i had fun going through sites of name brand bags to get the jimmy choo shoes!

Love is Eternal 2009

My Valentine's Day 2009 Collage

I made this collage for my mommy and daddy who will be celebrating their 54th wedding annivesary this sept.10.
Daddy thought i made it in photoshop. i think cutting and pasting the old fashion way is easier for me!
i found the vintage marriage license and thought it was perfect. i don't have much art materials
for my projects- yet! i used my daughter's crayola and paint and thanks to my sister (the scrapbook queen) for lending me her brown stamp pad. "Love is Eternal" is from 1Cor 13:8. i wanted this in my collage but my stamps don't have numbers.
Thank you Lord Jesus for the blessing of my parents and their marriage!
