Decided To Be Bold Today!

I'm back - I supposed to continue make souvenirs for our Easter program but I kind of feel down since last night. My head wont stop thinking alot of things and again the enemy frighten me again. Oh my fears why do you come again?

I've been worried about Easter program here it seems that I'm the only one who works for this.

I've been worried about my brothers, my sister and mylife ( sometimes I feel people judging my faith in Him)

 " I'm sorry, I wish I could have faith like you can sense what God wants for more and life will turn better"

I almost wanted to close this blog - but not this blog someday will bring a great testimony of my life story. I want people find God in this blog.




Let's be bold today, don't let your fears destroy you. just stop worrying about what can go wrong and get excited about what can go right  

Grab your Bible, praying and stop worrying about what people saying. Do what can you do and ask God to put peace in your heart is He willing me to do this and that.

those words that I tried to put in my head.
Promise to myself to not be weak and continue to work!.


 I remember last week! 
I talked with a lady that I met last year, she said there's no fear in love, love cover things
I decided to be bold in all that I do, I won't be afraid again.
it comes at a price
Embarrassment
Rejection 
but 
I want to enjoy it with grateful heart. 


Anyway, today the my package from Desrae came this morning - I'm just happy that I could win her giveaway blogversary last month...I never guessed before that I would have these amazing vintage pattern.



Thank you so much Desrae! I just love them all and your sweet words.


Here's my mom she is working on her cross stitch 


This will be a gift to Sean's mom once he comes here after Cambodia trip. This has been my family prayer since  he tried to come . 
Cambodia is near with Indonesia and I know he will come.
He will have project in Cambodia this summer and he will make a trip there on June. He never asked me to help but I want to help him to spread out what he is concerning of the fund raising.


Please take a look what he is saying there
It will mean world to me.

A Work in His hands

As I am the part of His works, and so are you! if you don't understand what I mean here. I'm praying that He will find you someday. :)

I was working hard on my second project. I needed to finish it before next week that I get started to help my team working to prepare our Easter program here.  At first, I designed it but then once I bought the fabric it's not enough so I need to cut the sleeves for shorter.

It's almost done


I want to do something challenging than before, I tried something with collar. Then I started to make it...it took 2 weeks for me.

I sewed the pattern, I looked it's doesnt look nice then I opened the threads.



I sewed it again, oh this time it looks good,  I fittin that clothes but I didn't feel comfort then again I opened the threads, and sewed till it looks good and comfort for me.




I saw the fabric, it got little damage and I was having sad face but this is in my mind when I looked at to that damage.

" I'm sorry dear fabric, you hurt so much but I have picked you that you look the best to me when I was in the fabric shop, but once you finished, I will wear you, you will satisfy me, I will like you and everyone who see you perfectly fit on me they must like you and they praise my work." 

but suddenly a little voice in my heart spoke to me.

Ohhh Eva! Aren't you this damage fabric? the different is you know that you're in a Master's Hands and that fabric doesn't know that thing.

Dear Lord Jesus,

For all my friends who don't know You, I pray that You would save them too.

~Holy Wedding~


via southern weddings


My boyfriend shared me a song other day...he said that we can use this song for our wedding day :) (he's sweet!) 
It's called "Holy Wedding", I thought it was a love song that normally people use for the wedding... but when I listened to that song...my eyes were teary - my tears just dropped...


This is the story of the Son of God 
Hanging on the cross for me 
But it ends with a bride and groom 
And a wedding by a glassy sea 
O death where is your sting 
Cause I'll be there singing 
Holy Holy Holy 
Is the Lord

This is the story of a bride in white 
Waiting on her wedding day 
Anticipation welling up inside 
While the groom is crowned as king 
O death where is your sting 
Cause we'll be there singing


Holy Holy Holy is the Lord 
Holy Holy Holy Holy Holy Holy 
Is the Lord Almighty 
Holy Holy Holy Holy Holy Holy 
Is the Lord Almighty 
Who was and is and is to come 
Who was and is and is to come


This song brought me to another time - A time where it is yet to come...
A wedding with my Savior - A wedding where you and me will be crowned with glory. My heart is beating each time I'm thinking of that day.

It's a day where we will be gathered together with our King
We are prepared to be His beautiful brides.



My heart is beating each time I'm thinking of that day.
The day when He was on the cross. It's a beginning  of this beautiful love story.
it's still continue...we are waiting, He is waiting too.
He thought that it would be great if you accept His proposal on the cross.
get prepared and be His beautiful bride.

As I wait for You..I am made more faithful.

The Final Look of The Dress

I'm just happy that finally I got to the final look of the dress that I made and read your respond. It just made me smile.

Please enjoy A story of My Sewing during I Share you the pictures.



One fact about me is I have wanted to learn of sewing since I was so young like 15 but I never had a chance to learn, everyday is school and homework, and other things even my sewing machine was broken since my mom stopped to sewing. So everything like exploded when I got a chance to learn sewing - I have wanted to do my best in it.



My grandma and my mom are the only only one who can sewing in family.
and here is come "me" that just learn when i think it's too late to learn this because both my grandma and my mom knew since they were kids.



So here is, what I have done with this sewing.
I know though the sewing is not really tidy and neat
but I'm just happy that I could wear dress that I made own self.
It's just crazy that it took many hours that I have to sew the sleeves pattern with the body pattern and to put the zipper on the back! hehe



My tutors are great - One of them loves God, and she was happy when the first time I met her. She has wanted to have an assistant that fear the Lord and she offered me a job for this sewing course - she also has mission to teach the poor ladies out there with sewing skill, and she asked me if I can be her partner. Oh yes!!!!! Of course! That is what I have been looking for!
Can you see that how good the Lord is?! :)



I want to learn sewing just incase if someday, I should stay at home and watch my own family. Probably sewing and make dresses could be my job.
But I want see where the Lord takes me :)

~My very first sewing~

My Dear Friend,

I'm so glad to know that how blessed I am, after struggling and took an attitude for my not  let my joy be taken and still love Him no matter what, I want to do it always because I love Him. I just can feel that He is so close just like the skin on my body :) Thank you Sweet Jesus. I love having fun with you.

Well, I also having fun with my sewing class and some friends there, well I am not the youngest but seem that almost everyone already have kids :) it makes me jealous - I just cant wait when I become a mom someday.

Here's my very first project.

It's not really good because it's just two weeks I've been learning about pattern and use the sewing machine.
Even though
I broke the needle on sewing machine two times hehe
even though I needed I was having trial and error many times.
But it all makes me so happy, I was processing to be better.
Just like how God shaped me to be more beautiful it had such a long process and hurt. But at the end I become as what He wills.

it has not finished yet but almost done.



I'm going to post the Sunshine award for the next post

The internet in the orphanage is not working right now and I must bring my computer out to write this post, I'm really sorry that during this time I cant visit you.

Book Review: The Invisible Spy – Spying on the lives of Celebrities

This is my first time to review a book. I am little nervous though but I want to do this for Hilda as agood friend/sister in this blogland :) but before I want to introduce her to you, I want you to know that I won her book - giveaway a couple months ago, she is so sweet, she sent me the book and ring far far away from States to Indonesia. How blessed I am :)

Hilda Leticia Dominguez :

She is a self-published Author, and this is her  official blog.  She started to write when she was in 4th grade. When her teacher asked their class to make homemade book and there she decided to create her own story her stuffed animals.  Hilda has received an Editor’s Choice Award for her poem, “ To my Beloved Wife” In addition, she has won two writing contests in a year and contributed polls for Archie Comic Publications Website and received more than 300+ votes. Hilda enjoys writing fiction stories for people of all ages. Isn’t she is amazing? :)

The story behind this book :
She has written many stories but this one get published first, she wrote with her own imagination. This story finished on 2012 and get published on 29 August 2013. 


Book Review:




Sofia is a young girl, she has a lovely family with parents, one sister and one brother. She is closest to her brother like a best friend. She also surrounded by friends. One night on her birthday she wishes upon a magical power to spy invisible, it was said after the star a shooting star flew above the moon. She is wondering if magical would really happen then she went to sleep. The desire of her heart took her to magical night too. She got that power inside a star ring.
The magical of that ring brought her to a long adventure. She used that ring for spy her favorite celebs to spy if they are good role model or it’s just on TV, and then she found one of her favorite celebs Sasha that has a good personality, she tried to matched Sasha with her favorite brother Joseph, it worked well. With that ring it also prevented her two friends who were rude on her.
With that ring she could know the situation and people around her. One day she decided to be bold and confidence and won’t let the situation take her happiness.


My thought:

This book is good for teenagers – it’s about an adventure, family & friend, and attitude.
Sofia and her family have live simply beautiful it also shaped her personality well. 
Just like some teenagers outside they tried to define who are their favorite idols, but not all of them could recognize if some idols brings no good examples to live the life. Sofia learned to define it all with spying each one of them and decided which one she could set as her role model. 
My favorite point of this book is Sofia knows how to use the magical thing in her life. Even though she needs to be more careful with it.
Sofia could find happiness not only with the magic ring but mostly with her attitude every day.

If you get interest to know her, please visit her blog :) I believe she will respond you with her heart.
