The Story of Ananias and Sapphira – Acts 5 : 1-11

Our series for this month is entitled TEST. We will be talking about people who experienced tests in the New Testament.

We are now on the third week of our series and I will be teaching the Test of Truthfulness. My topic is related to the story of Ananias and Sapphira and how they failed the test. You can read the scriptures from Acts 5 : 1-11

There are three reasons why they failed:

1. THEY DECEIVED THE PEOPLE. Acts 5:2 He brought part of the money to the apostles, claiming it was the full amount. With his wifes consent, he kept the rest. Instead of giving all the money they got from selling their property, Ananias and Sapphira decided to keep part of the money. They tried to deceive people by pretending they were giving the full amount. Slide04 2. THEY GAVE IN TO TEMPTATION. Acts 5:3 Then Peter said, Ananias, why have you let Satan fill your heart? You lied to the Holy Spirit, and you kept some of the money for yourself. Ananias and Sapphira were tempted by Satan to keep part of the money for themselves. The problem was not when they were tempted. The problem is that they gave in to the temptation. Giving in to temptation means actually doing the sinful thing. Temptation is not a sin but when we give in to temptation, it becomes a sin. Slide10 Slide19 3. THEY LIED TO GOD. Acts 5:4 The property was yours to sell or not sell, as you wished. And after selling it, the money was also yours to give away. How could you do a thing like this? You werent lying to us but to God! It was Ananias’ and Sapphira’s choice whether or not to sell the property. What was sinful was when they chose to pretend that they were really giving the whole amount from the sale of their property. But we all know that they didn’t fool God because God saw everything they did. Slide13 Slide21 For arts and craft I’ve prepared a simple craft that mainly focus on our power verse. Proverbs 12:22 – The Lord detests lying lips but he delights those who tell the truth. photo 4 I printed facial features which I got it free from picklebum.com and I loved how this funny faces will help the kids grasp our lesson easily. photo 1 photo 3  photo 5

And that is God give us the power to tell the truth…

We were invited!! Minnie Mouse and Frozen Party

For two consecutive days we were invited to kiddie parties. And because this is the only way Angelo can see his friends we are trying our best to attend kahit commute lang from Sharjah to Dubai.

Our first party was a Minnie Mouse Theme. It’s a double celebration of Marcene 1st birthday and Margarette 6th birthday . You’ll be surprised their birthdays are five days apart lang. Ang galing noh?!

The cake is too cute not to share.
Too girly perfect for girls who loved Minnie Bow Tie Boutique..

The next day was Queen Dressy Coronation Day. She loved Frozen movie so it’s very obvious that as she turned six years old she’ll have a chillin and freezin’ birthday celebration.

Familia Cerrado had so much fun and sweets overload talaga. Thank you for inviting us.

I’m stress and so I made this…

I have so much on my plate that really bothers me. It’s something I need to worked on with myself. Sometimes I’m also thinking maybe daddy A was right I am just over reacting or pushing myself too much.
Anyway i really don’t have plan of doing any craft kasi nga I am too busy now a days. But because of stress I created this..

We have so much pictures kasi from the parties we are attending. O sige na nga we loved photo booth kaya sulit siya sa family namin. And since we have lots of photos na I used the Kodak album lang to put them in one place. But every time Inigo will look at it para siyang sore eyes sakit sa mata kasi parang mailagay lang.

To beat my stress I wrapped the Kodak album using our gift wrapper and cover it with plastic for protection. I also cut some words from old magazines to look like scrapbook.

It’s very simple but at least I was relieved..

Inigo is ONE – Our DIY Outdoor Photo Session

IMG_1783

I know I’ve mentioned this  few times – but to me there is nothing more special than to capture a memories over the years.

OMG where is my tiny new born that we can cradle in one arm.  How did he turn into this cute little man who looks nothing like he used to?! It seems like yesterday when we saw his precious face.

It’s definitely crazy how quickly the time passes – but what I looooove to see is the personalities that emerge from this little man as he grow.

Inigo certainly brought the personality! This time he came secure in the knowledge that he L.O.V.E.D. outdoor play. And he H.A.T.E.D. holding his hand to lead him. He has his own way and direction and don’t want anyone to distract him. Oh and one more thing he hate having his clothes changed. So we didn’t even bother to changed him again because for sure it will definitely one big drama!

But I can’t help but  just adore this sweet boy and I know you’re going to love his smile and his goooooorgeous chinito eyes too!!!

As promised at the end of yesterday’s post here is our sweet little guy really going after this cake.

What one year old photo session wouldn’t be complete with out a Cake Smash? This is the first time we’ve done Smash the Cake session! It’s probably one of the precious moment for Inigo. He got his first taste of his own cake. I mean seriously..who wouldn’t like a piece of  sweetness.

I wasn’t surprised when the cake simply never got smashed. Although he didn’t dive in like so many other kids do we still had lots of fun.

Stay Tuned for Inigo 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session…

We have been photographing this adorable baby since he was a newborn. It’s amazing how fast time flies.  I can’t believe that we are now doing his 1st birthday cake smash photos! Inigo wasn’t a big fan of daddy A’s camera on the day we took his photos. We decided to do something outdoors for a change since his previous milestone shoots had been indoors. We went to a park and brought some props along! Inigo gave us every emotion–he laughed, he cried, he screamed and got mad, then he walked away!

Behind the scene of our DIY Outdoor Photo Shoot of Inigo

Can you believe that Baby Inigo is now ONE! Yay! Welcome to the world of toddlerhood.

Yesterday we had his first post birthday shoot. Originally we were suppose to shoot pre-birthday  but he was down with fever and flu and the little boy was so clingy and moody so we need to cancel our plan. During the shoot we really work hard to get him to smile. He has his own plan and don’t want to stay in one place especially on his cake smash session.

But all in all it was a fantastic session, a lot of memories were made! Before I gave you the sneak peek I want to post these photos para makita niya how cute he is even if he is cranky..haha

I guess you will all agree that even if he was crying he’s still the most beautiful baby…

I LOVE YOU INIGO RAPHAEL and Happy Birthday!!
