Introduktion og intention
Hi, welcome to the website of Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, a site which windows her poems, paintings and some articles on some issues. Drop by and send me a note if you find something valuable here.
Drink from the River of Silence
Visit this river, this silent river of life.
See its secrets hidden in the deepest bottom
Measure its height, its width and breadth
And know that you are before a river of silence
So deep, so wide, so high - beyond measure,
A river of silence it is within the bells of time
Even as it empties itself to a far-flung ocean.
Drink from this river the water of life
Refresh your thirst for love, hope and faith
Wash your hands from the blood of violence
Fill your tongue by the honey from this water
Transforming fiery words to soothing words
Of comfort; bathe yourself, put on new clothes!
And only then, you can sing your song of joy.
In response to the 29th title challenge of Hina.

Come and come beside us
Dwell and dwell with us
Fill and fill our longings
That by your presence
We find peace and
Come and come to our troubles
Dwell and dwell in our hearts
Fill and fill our mind with your goodness
That we may only strive to seek your face.
Come and lead us through the Shining Star.
Tuloy po kayo!
Hej, her kan du se en del af mit univers om, hvordan et begrænset dansk sprog har presset mig til at udtrykke mig selv gennem billeder og farver. Her kan du se, hvordan jeg har prøvet at forholde mig til verdens begivenheder og relatere mine reflektioner og overvejelser til min kristne tro.
Her er vinduet til mit hjerte som en fremmed i det danske samfund. Her er min måde at overleve med værdighed og glæde. Jeg er meget glad for at denne hjemmeside kan bruges til et forum om, hvordan vi forstår livet og vores fælles ansvar for livet, for vores medmennesker og for vores fælles jord.
Hi, let me write some lines here for the sake of those who cannot understand Danish. This website is my new attempt to share to the open world what I have done with my hands. Painting is a new interest that has caught my attention only during my time here in Denmark. I think it is because I felt so frustrated with the difficulty of the Danish language, that I had to find another way of communicating in order to express myself. Painting, I should say, has been my catharsis. I am really glad that through it, I am able to express my thoughts and reflections on situations and events affecting us all, and relate these to my Christian faith.
This website contains also some of my poems in both Danish and English, some songs that I wrote and have sung to some gatherings and occasions in churches and certain organizations. Here are photos of my family and friends, reporting on some seminars/summercamps and newsletters, presentation about my home country, and a write-up on my way of looking at the cultural differences between Philippines and Denmark.Here I also write the projects in my home island which my family and I are involved in. Sale of my paintings goes to the support of these projects.
I invite you to take time to see and read and if there is something you think is interesting, I hope you can drop a word in my guestbook or send me an e-mail. I am also open to invitations to sing, exhibit paintings or speak on certain issues that concern the church, integration and reconciliation. Contact me if you think there is a painting you wish to buy.

Fællesskabet rundt omkring bordet (Fellowship around the table)
A dining table is a symbol of fellowship. Here we are nurtured to nourish our body. Here we have learned to share our thoughts and listen to others`s stories. Here we are made to listen to a simple prayer of thanks to the Creator, the Maker of our lives and the Sustainer, who grants that fruits from the labor of our hands on the farms and our working places, may enable us to have food available on our common table.
Here is our table when we rejoice when one is born into the family and this is the same table where we sit together and eat, once one among whom we dearly love, leaves us or dies.
Life is short and very delicate. One has to take care of it and enjoy every moment that is lived.
A table as a rich symbol of fellowship
Gathering around a table opens possibility for dialogue, for interchange of ideas, for listening ears and open hearts. I find a table a good symbol of fellowship. I think Jesus on his last day has left to us a good legacy of building fellowships with one another. We need to have time to agree to sit down around a table, time to share ideas and dreams, time to enjoy the grace to be listened to and the power to come up with an idea or agenda to be talked about. But let those who sit around this table be aware of the presence of that Invisible One who has, first of all, invited us to dine around His table of remembrance.
Around a table and the possibilities one can find...

Beth with Inger during the LMF summercamp
To be able to laugh with somebody is a great gift. Inger is a happy woman inspite of her age. Laughter makes the heart feel younger. Friendship is watered by laughter.
Laugh and the world laughs with you!
Happy International Women's Day 2016! The struggle for women's emancipation from slavery, discrimination and oppression continues! Let us empower women whereever they are in our one world that they can attain their human, social, religious, economic, cultural and political rights!
