Prayer Get-Together

We were invited by a filipina friend for prayer gathering last weekend so me and the kids went. She told me not to bring food because she said that she ordered some from the Chinese restaurant and other Filipinos promised to bring some menus to but I brought with us some ginataan (Filipino dessert) anyway. I don't want to go there without bringing anything. Well, I should have listened to her because there were tons of foods in there.
The kids had so much playing with the kids, although they got sick after that gathering which led me to believed that they got food poisoning from there.
All the kids in the photos are half Filipinos and half Americans. After saying the rosary, the ladies had a jewelry presentation from someone who work as a jewlery agent.
I brought my kids at the back porch when we ate our food but we did not last there because it was cold. We just enjoyed the beautiful view and we came back in.
I took this beautiful combination of two trees in full bloom in front of their neighbor's house.

Thank you all for including my children in your prayers, they are feeling better now. Although their appetite are still down but at least they are not sick anymore. Praise God for He is great!


  1. eto din po, I included in my blogroll at Happy Home Working hope to see you there...

  2. aww!!! kakatuwa ate rose na meron ka pong ganyang community na napupuntahan.. kame dito eh limitadong limitado... I've been na to your MM entry and after pala netong gathering sila nagkasakit... buti hindi kinailangan ma hospitalize... si alyssa kase na food poison sa pinas, 3 days kame sa hospital... hirap talaga kase sensitive ang tyan ng mga kids... hope their appetite gets back to normal soon...

  3. A family that prays together, stays together. And family includes not only our blood relatives but friends too.

    What a great event on your weekend!

  4. We always pray wherever we go whatever we do and when there is a time that we forgot our son always tell us that we forgot to pray and we are thankful...happy SS! Rose your kiddos are cute...

  5. Oh how I love to hear that you are praising God. I know it is music to the Lord's ears. It is always great to attend prayer meetings cum fellowship with Pinay friends. You can compare notes and share problems and experiences and explore opportunities for sharing businesses. The kids can also play and congregate with fellow Fil/Am kids. Too bad that your kids contracted food poisoning in the gathering. Must be some spicy and stale food they ate. Anyway, I have been praying for them and for your whole family too. Thanks for the homey post. God bless you all always.
