Spanish bookmarks

January 20, 2013

Three Spanish bookmarks, from Santiago de Compostela and Madrid.


They are gifts from my precious aunts E. and F. ;-)

I received these from Cathie today. She tells me this first bookmark was made for the Rugby World Cup :

And the second one shows the Milford Sound, a fjord in the south west of New Zealand’s South Island, judged as the world’s top travel destination and acclaimed as New Zealand’s most famous tourist destination :

It looks better with light behind it :

Thank you ! :-)

Spiritual gifts

May 13, 2010

The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit:

In Christianity, the Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost) is the Spirit of God, and the third part of the Trinity. It’s equal with God the Father and with God the Son.

According to Christians, the Holy Spirit gives ‘gifts’. These gifts consist of specific abilities granted to the individual Christian. They are: 1. Spirit of Wisdom; 2. Spirit of Understanding; 3. Spirit of Counsel; 4. Spirit of Strength; 5. Spirit of Knowledge; 6. Spirit of Godliness; 7. Spirit of Holy Fear.

The Holy Spirit is usually represented with a dove.

Thanks to my aunt for these bookmarks.

Chinese proverbs

To cultivate oneself, one must recognize the merits and correct the defects.

They’re from a Buddhist Monastery called Fo Guang Shan in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
