Hi everyone! I haven't posted anything in the last few days because I have been sick...not  a serious one and had been busy with all the the things that should be done.
Well, anyway, just some updates from me, just in case someone misses me out there:)
Today, after work, I baked banana muffins to be served to the elderly when we visit them on Sunday to share God's words and love to them 

Not so clear picture from my phone

I do manage to make three pairs of potholders

The weather this week changed all the time.

No snow 

Or else I am busy packing because next Friday, I am going to the Philippines to visit my family there. So, I am excited:)
 Well, after all the updates from me, hope to hear from you too!

Leaving you words to ponder at the end of this post. 

Is there anyone who wants to suffer? To be lonely and live and fear?
 How about losing everything? 
I believe that no one wants their hearts to be ripped.
 Shred to pieces? 
Not to mention to be sick and to die.
 We sometimes get hurt and hurt others as well. 
But whether we want it or happens.
 So the best thing we can do is be there for others,
 as we like others to be there for us. Forgive and just love all year round.

Pattern and power

Pattern and power..
Whom do we follow?
 Are we following Jesus footsteps? 

How about feeling like giving up because no matter what we do, we can't do it perfectly or wholeheartedly?

 Too much disturbances and temptations in life. 

We see sufferings everywhere and wonder where God is? Problems never cease to come?

In addition, we ought to live by these words:
"I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who lives, but Christ live in me. Gal. 2:20

Seems impossible for us to do so. Isn't it?

We have to keep our selfie dead everyday and let Christ be alive in us.

But believe it or is the best thing we could ever do in every aspect of our lives. 

There is freedom in it and all the burdens be lifted up from our shoulders.

Someone quoted: 
Yes, Christ is our pattern, but thank God, He is more. He is also our power.

- Oh to be like Thee, blessed Redeemer!
This is my constant longing and prayer;
Gladly I will forfeit all of earth's treasures,
Jesus, Thy perfect likeness to wear. - Crisholm

Essence in God's kingdom

Prayer for you and me:

Dear God,
 let our lives be an essence for Your kingdom.
 Let us us bow down to Your throne and worship You with every bit of our hearts. 
Let us rejoice because we found You as the Savior of our souls. 
There is none like You Lord, the Rock of all ages. 
All knowledge comes from You.
Thank You because You girded us with strength when we stumble.
 You lend a helping hand so that we can remain standing during our battles in life.
 You provides wisdom to us who ask in every details of our lives.
Praise be Thy Holy name

Above your problems!

Above your problems..
Those who wait on the Lord shall mount up with wings like eagles. Isaiah 40:31
-Be God- centered, not problem centered.
Lord, give us the wings to soar above

Our problems great and small

With strengthened faith and confidence
To trust You with them all- Sper
 - Worry ends where faith begins.

A need!

Today's prayer for you and me:

Dear God,
 I pray that whenever we see a need,
 we will not be reluctant to help. 
To lend a helping hand. 
Be a good example like You did.
 I pray that we will not be afraid to launch out into the deep,
 or climb on top of a mountain,
no matter how hard it can be. 
I pray that we will continue to be obedient,
 although we don't see any results.
 We might fail many times, 
but thank You for new chances You gives every day. 
At the end, the outcome will be great. 

I pray that we will share the blessings that You provides for us
 and that we will remain humble in all that we achieved. 
Thank You for Your amazing works.
 We don' need to be afraid 
because You whom we follow knows the way.

Unforgettable bonding!

Time goes so fast, but some days seems to be unforgettable than others. This weekend had been a very special weekend for me and for those that were with me. 
It began with a beautiful day as you can see. It was a gift from above.

We were going to visit our younger sister who has been very sick and we really missed her.
Our cousin Celeste who lives in the city was also coming with us. We slept over on her place because we were going to take an early flight the day after. She and her husband made a very delicious dinner for us and we felt that we were in a first class hotel with a first class service. 

Anyway, the weather was also amazing the day of our flight. Our sister lives in a place called Vigrestad.

Since our sister  Lida was very weak, we didn't expect her to fetch us at the airport. We thought that it was only Petter ( her love) who was going to be at the airport when we arrive. But she was there and even rented a big car so that there will be a place for all of us and that we can have a sightseeing while we were there. We were really very touched because she forced herself to be strong to be there to meet us.

 At the left, Minda a close friend of us, was also with us to visit Lida.
 So  here we are: our  cousin Celeste, my older sister Lourdes, younger sister Lida and me.

On the way to Vigrestad

We stopped by here to take some pictures. It was blowing so hard, but we had fun!

My younger sister was not in the condition to cook, but she served homemade Philippines food which she ordered from another Filippina friend. In addition, she invited Lilli her closed friend there, whom I am longing to meet in person to dinner. We reallly had a wonderful time with her. She was a very kind and fine lady. We liked her very much.

Petter,  is an amazing man who loves our sister unconditionally.It  shows in action and words. We are really thankful for his unconditional love.

We were blessed with a beautiful sunset that evening.

Not only that, Petter showed us a video of him and Lida where they were in the Philippines in 2013. Then we poured our hearts to each other. We cried, we laughed and we prayed.  We reminisced the good times we had with each other and chose to believe that things will get better.

Lida showed us her bridal gown and as you can see, is very beautiful. 

Time to go home the day after.  We were also blessed with a wonderful weather.

Petter drove us first to a shopping mall nearby to do some shopping while Lida went to her therapist.

With this, I will not say goodbye to  my dearest sister Lida. I say, until we meet again.

Eyes only for you!

Eyes only for you!

Yes, it is Valentines day. 
We supposed to be celebrating love to the fullest.
 How it is to be feel loved by someone who only have eyes on you? Amazing isn't it?

My husband... I believed have only eyes on me and I am pretty sure that it is the other way around. 
But even though our eyes turn in other directions...I am pretty much assured that love is still there and we feel safe. 
But there is someone whose eyes never cease to look on us with love and compassion. Eyes that direct us to the right way we should go. And that is the eyes of the most Holy One. 
That is what I call true love

How about you? Where do you focus your eyes? To whom do you show your love?

- God loves everyone of us as if there were but one of us to love. - Augustine

Happy Valentines day to all!

Sanctifying our hearts and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks. 1 Pet.3:15

How do we sanctify our hearts? How do we defend ourselves? 

-Lord, help us to live in such a way
That people will ask and want to know
How they can have real joy and peace
While living in a world of woe. -Sper

* God gave a message to share, don't keep it to yourself.

Dear God, I am sure that many times we do things we should not be doing and say words that we shouldn't be saying.
 We think thoughts that we should not be thinking. 
But I do thank You for giving us the opportunity to repent and start all over again.
 For the reminder from Your words.
 Let our lives be a lovely message to this world. 
A life lived with You.
 I pray in Jesus name.

Pray with thanksgiving!

How can we pray with thanksgiving when the storm is rummaging our lives?
 When we don't get healed of sickness?
 When we feel alone or rejected? When those we love suffers?
Someone quoted:
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer.

- Thankfullness in prayer can lift a load of care.

 Dear God, thank You that You are our haven in the midst of the storm in our lives.
 No one can separate us from Your love whether we live or die. 
Thank You for the comfort when we are sick. 
To be able to put our lives into Thy hands. 
Thank You for You promise not to leave us or forsake us so we will never be alone.

 In everything by prayer and suplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

Enough for everyone!

Enough for everyone! God offers everything for free. 
Seek and you will find...knock and the door will be opened...ask and you will receive. 

- We are loaded with benefits daily
Sent down from Father above;

His mercies and blessings abounding
Are gifts of His marvelous love. -Anon

The well of God's blessings will never run dry.

Frustrated or content?

- Contentment is the soil on which the true joy lives.

Father God, 
I pray for me and everyone to love and to cherish the life that you had given to us. 
I pray that we will find joy in everything we do in Your name.
 Let the work of our hands benefit ourselves, others and bring glory to your name.
 Let us be thankful for all the gifts, opportunities and lessons in life that You gives as we travel the road of life.
 Let your peace saturate our souls as we toil under the sun or in the coldness of wintertime. 
I pray in Jesus name

Hello everyone! It is me again blogging once again and sharing some unusual pictures to you from my last visit to the city of Stavanger.
This was inside of the hospital where me and my older sister visited our younger sister.

I wonder who is the prettiest? She was turned into a stone. Just joking:)

Summer inside?

It seems that this statue lost his chance to speak and to move!

A king?

Look at the vines..they are growing on the building's wall

I was happy though that this crocodile was not alive.

Sweet, isn't it?

In this place they use the building's wall to park their car.

another statue..forgot to see who he was

Horse riding in town?

The new in fashion

Want some veggies?

Fairy tale figures

Hey! Take it easy...we are in town!

Welcome to the seventh heaven shop ( Syvende himmel)

Leaving you these words:

How about doing today what we are capable of doing...maybe we can surprise ourselves! We strive for the best and we will get the best in life!
Have a wonderful day friends.
