Bible Devotion: Love May Be Someone, But It Will Always Be God

"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful" I find 1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬5 too overboard and mushy until I met Jumel. Blame the [my favorite] movie, "A Walk to Remember" for romanticizing …

Two years ago, I and Jumel worked in the same office as defense analysts/researchers for one of the agencies of the Philippine Government.

A Chibi Caricature With Love

My boyfriend, Jumel, had a long hiatus from painting and doing artwork ever since he focused with his Master's Degree and writing his West Philippine Sea-related thesis. That's why, I couldn't be happier when he told me that I was the only person who got him to drawing again. Occasionally, he would draw and doodle …
