Impressive Handmade Souvenirs from a Jailhouse

I am impressed of what a life in prison can do to a repentant heart.

Few days ago, my colleagues at work and I went to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) to conduct our annual Outreach Program with the prisoners. (Read the full story here.)

As soon as we stepped in to the jailhouse, my eyes were glued in to these creations that I find rather impressive.

They’re beautifully laid down on the pavement as their way way perhaps of catching our attention. I knew right there that it’s going to be for sale so my eyes instantly got busy scouting for a take home and what happened to make a perfect visual sound to me was this…

… a recycled plastic-made bonsai plant miniature! Lovely, isn’t it? Plus, for a very friendly price I took it home along with this strip of colorful

plastic string-made purse. What a catch!

There’s nothing like these in our last year’s visit. Prisoners seems to know better this time, LOL!

Kidding aside, though, it is really good to know that even on detention a lot of them are still looking at the bright side of life. As a saying goes, not every day is a rainy day. With a contrite heart, no sin is ever greater than God’s mercy.
