Delight in The Word

WEBSITE UPDATE:

I can explain — the hiatus wasn’t planned.

{hello, happy heart ♥}

experienced its very first breakdown during the start of 2016, and so I needed to enlist the help of the young masters over at SEO Hacker to get it up and running again. If you look at any of my older entries, and see missing pictures, that’s because I need to re-upload them all one by one. :( HUHU. Not to mention, I still have Osaka, Kyoto, and Tokyo snapshots that I want to put here, but that’s going to have to wait for another time.

Remember how I said that some of the best things come for free, and come in the form of an email? Well, it happened again. This time, the lovely Ida Torres of OMF Literature invited me to the launch event of their newest Coloring Book for Grown-ups called “Delight In The Word”.

Ms. Rory and Ms. Ida


Gathering the creative artwork of 15 artists from
Googoohit, this collection of illustrations contains over 50 detachable pages inspired from the book of Psalms. It is (and please forgive the pun) a delight. After the launch, I got to chat a bit with Rory Morales-Gutierrez, the beautiful soul behind Googoohit, and she was all enthusiasm and all excitement over her artist-friends that contributed to the project. I could feel her gushing over their talents. You gotta love people like that. :)

Ate Ginger!

One of my favorite moments of the night was actually seeing a familiar face in Ate (that’s big sister to all you non-Filipino speakers) Ginger De Guia. I didn’t know that she was going to be part of it, and I think we were both pleasantly surprised bumping into each other in the launch. She actually asked if I worked with OMF (hahaha), and I asked why she was there — and was so pleased to know that she was one of the 15 artists featured in this coloring book! I know that life doesn’t always turn out the way we want to, so seeing somebody sort of persevere and “succeed” – I say this word loosely – in their art gives me renewed energy.

I remember when Ate Ginger was still starting with her doodling, and I remember remarking how amazed I was, and how faithful God has been, because look how far she’s come! She’s gaining recognition and confidence as an artist (she’s got her own Facebook page and has been joining – and quite possibly winning – art competitions), and that makes me really happy. Thank you for being an inspiration, Ate. :) Wala kang kakupas-kupas.

Here are some snaps of the launch night for you:

Fun fact: Coloring these books cannot be considered art therapy, but experts still say that it can be therapeutic. Want to know the difference?

I mean, I think Delight in the Word is pretty genius. It masterfully marries the explosive-trend of coloring books with the rock-solid-comfort from the Word of God.

I’ve researched that coloring can sometimes feel like mediation, and well — meditating on the book of Psalms sounds like a pretty swell idea to me. :) (And if coloring will encourage you to obey and bring a hurting world back to Jesus, then, all the better! :D )

I like being on the floor and crushing ice with my teeth. John 3:30 is a significant verse in my life.
