Gift for Rachel on her First Holy Communion ceremony

20 Nov 2011 was my niece, Rachel received her first communion. First Communion is considered one of the holiest and most important occasions in a Roman Catholic's life. It means that person has received the Sacrament of the Eucharist, the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Most Catholic children receive their First Communion when they're seven or eight years of age because this is considered the age of reason.

To remember this special day, I have prepared a gift for Rachel - a little bag with cross design and bible wordings. Simple and yet unique because it is hand make by me :)

Earlier I was thinking what should I give as gift. Perhaps, a Rosary or prayer book, but not sure if it is too personal, or whether she already have those from her parents. After having much thought, I decided to make so something that she could use it everyday in school. Hence, I sewed a little bag for her with the cross design and bible wordings.

I started the project late and thank God that I could finish stitching in just 1 day and barely in time sew it into bag on the very same day, an hour before lunch gathering. Really 'Hot' from the 'sewing machine'.

On the next day, when I was driving back home, I saw this beautiful sky in front of me. So mystery. The reflection of heavy cloud beneath under the sun as it going down projected a path in the sky. God creations, amazing!
