"The real secret of happiness is not what you give or 
what you receive,
it's what you share."

"The secret of life is that all we have and are 
is a gift of grace to be shared."
Lloyd John Ogilvie 

Hi!Me and my husband are celebrating today our 12th anniversary. 
So today I want to share with you a prayer for married couples as I pray with a thankful heart for our marriage:

Dear heavenly Father,

thank you for the gift of love and
the blessings of our marriage.
We give you praise for the joy
you pour into our hearts.
We need your strength daily.
Unite us in a band of friendship,
commitment and understanding.
Let us always support to one another.
Help us to make time to us alone 
to nurture our marriage.
May our love for each other
grow stronger every day and
may our lives together
bring glory to you.
In Jesus' name I pray.

And don't be wishing you were someplace else or with someone else. Where you are right now is God's place for you. Live and obey and love and believe right there.  
1Corinthians 7:17 The Message

"God’s never taken His eye off of you.
Not for a millisecond. He’s always near.
He lives to hear your heartbeat.
He loves to hear your prayers."

Max Lucado

Do you like to read magazines?I do!But I think it can often happen that when we look at fashion magazines we can start to  feel depressed shortly afterward. Why?Because we feel that we are not like the models but full of imperfection.Those women in the magazines look just perfect, so beautiful.But guess what?The women in those photos aren't perfect either! Behind those photos there a lot of great work:make-up,hair dressers,stylists and then photoshop to get rid of all the imperfections...to create an illusion!And secondly you maybe have heard that these young women are not really happy in their lives...They pay a high price  to look the way designers want them to look and as it is way too difficult these girls are using drugs or dealing with a serious eating disorder.

But guess what?God says:
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your 
 works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14

God has declared that we are marvelous…beautiful!No matter the shape of your eyes, the size of your nose, the color of your skin, the texture of your hair, or the smoothness of your skin…YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
Do you believe this?Do you think that you are beautiful and wonderfully made?
If you have some difficulties to believe it look in the mirror and shout: 

God bless you!

It’s that time of year again;children are back to school!
I think it's important to pray over our children as they start their new school year.

Dear heavenly Father I pray that you would  be with every child that is returning back to school this year.I ask that you would bless all these little learners.Give them the strength to learn and concentrate, give wisdom as they listen to lectures and complete homework.Help them act in love towards their teachers and fellow students.Keep them safe from dangers seen and unseen and protect them on their way going to school and back home.
Be with our children’s teachers this year.  Help them to teach in ways that each student can understand.
And  Lord, help us as parents to be supportive of our children this year.
I pray in Jesus name.Amen.

If you make the Lord your refuge,
      if you make the Most High your shelter,
  no evil will conquer you;
      no plague will come near your home.
  For he will order his angels
      to protect you wherever you go.
Psalm 91:9-11

Why?Because Jesus has promised that YOU WILL BE FILLED!

And it is a good thing to receive wealth from God and the good health to enjoy it. To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life—this is indeed a gift from God. 
Ecclesiastes 5:19

From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another.
John 1:16 (NLT)

Be determined to enjoy the abundant life that Jesus Christ desires for you to have!
Be determined to follow His lead all day, and you will enjoy every day of your life!

He has given me a new song to sing,a hymn of praise to our God.Many will see what he has done and be amazed.They will put their trust in the Lord.
Psalm 40:3

Sing a new song to the Lord!Let the whole earth sing to the Lord!
Psalm 96:1 

Sing a new song of praise to him;play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy.
Psalm 33:3 

As you can see above the Bible speaks in many places to sing a new song.
 And it is quite true: even if you are angry, sad, disappointed, worried, or whatever your mood is,
  when you start to sing a new song to God you can be sure that you will feel better 
and you can sense that God cares for you! 

"Every time I begin to feel
that there just isn't any 
more strength in me,
I end up knowing that 
there is more...
in Him."

Gloria Gaither 

Have a blessed September!
