Entertainment!

Hi friends! How are you doing? Very much excited and busy for the coming Christmas?
Anyway, I am also preparing for this joyous season, but sometimes I get so tired and then I just want to be entertained by a book or by watching a film. Yesterday, a young blogger from the Philippines: Fiel- Kun said that this film ( The Christmas shoes) is worth watching. So I search for the film in you tube and there it was. Ready to watch. So I watched the film and cried a lot. But it was a beautiful film anyway.

When we were in Prague last fall, there was no problem to be entertained. The musicians  were everywhere and played their different instruments to entertain and to earn money. Why not? An honest way to earn a living.


I was not sure what kind of instrument this man was using. Do you? 

Drummer boy:)

This group  both sung and danced. They were there to show the tourist they tradition. It was very interesting and strange to hear their language. And how about the crowd? We were from different countries and have different languages. I believe it was very strange for others too.




These beautiful ladies showed their national dance. Danced so gracefully!





Those were very entertaining!

How about you?
What kind of entertainment do you like?

Ending this post with a prayer for you and me:

Thankfulness

Thank you Oh God for your words that bring us more closer to you.
Thank you Jesus for making us righteous in God's sight.
Justified by faith.
I pray that we will always be thankful
for all the days that you are giving to us.
To make each day memorable and a blessing.

I pray in Jesus name.
Amen

From London with love!

I had been baking a cake one day when my phone  a gave a beep...then I know I got  message. It was from my youngest daughter who was in London for a weekend tour together with her love. She sent me pictures from there.
They seldom see each other because she study in a place far away from where he is working. But now, they have both Christmas vacation and  nurture their love for each other. 

Here are they: My daughter Kamilla and her love Vegard.

How about you?

Have you been to London?

Christmas party!

 Yes, soon it will be Christmas and people are having parties everywhere. We who came from the Philippines, who now lives in Norway wished to celebrate Christmas in our own way...a little of Philippines tradition.
But since we live in norway and loves this country, we invited Norwegians too. 

The party began at 5 pm and it was already dark and cold, but it didn't stopped us.

At the entance: We paid 225 crowns for food, drinks and entertainment. Very cheap.



The happy guests:  Just in case you didn.t see me, I am in the middle at the left side.

After talking, laughing and waiting for an hour...finally the food was served

No complaints...



 Yes, most of the time we do it without thinking. 
Maybe conplain about how things does not work as we want it to be at home or at work. 
Complain about the stress of the season...so much to do with so little time. 
Not having enough money to buy all the gifts that you need to buy. 
How about ungrateful people who were not satisfied of the gift that you bought?
 Not to talk about unfairness everywhere. 
There are a lot of things that we are not satisfied with like how the leaders run the country...how some people does not want to do a thing, but expect others to do everything?
Well, the list can be endless...

But God said: Do all things without complaining and disputing. Philippians 2.14.

Dear God, thank you for your patience towards us and the reminder not to murmur.
Let us do everything with thanksgiving because there are lot of things to be thankful about.
Let us be obedient and loyal to you no matter how hard the situation might be.
Thank you because you delight in Your children whose walk are steadfast.
Thank you because with you, we don't need to be afraid.

Remember: A merry heart is a healthy heart.

So I am thankful for the flowers at Christmas time.


For having the chance to make homemade cookies to be given to the elderly on Sunday where we are going to share God's word and love.

For my sister and brother-in-law who baked cookies for the ederly.


For lunch that I had eaten at the mall yesterday.



How about you? 
What are you thankful about?

JOY
