If you are a mom you surely know that being a mom is a tough job;maybe the toughest job any of us will ever have...because we moms easily think that it's our job also to worry about our children.

If we don't worry about our childeren,who will then?

This morning was one of those mornings,you know nothing went in a way it should have...My older son was really tired and didn't want to get up from the bed.First I tried to wake him up in a nice way but as nothing happened and the clock was ticking I lost my calm...and then there was slamming doors,yelling and hurrying and nothing was good...And after that I was just worried how he will get along at school without eating any breakfast...Worried if there was something wrong,if something had happened...Worried.

But after taking the kids to school I felt...tired and not happy about this morning so I just stopped and talked about it  with my Heavenly Father...And he reminded me once again that it's not my job to worry about my children.God tells us moms;don't worry!God will take care of our children-we have to trust in God! And I know God does so much better work than me!

So...Father I give all my worries to you.I trust You with my children.Be the Lord over the little and big things in my life.
And thank you that you have perfect plans for my children.
Help me to be good mom today!Amen.

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
Matthew 6:27 

"There will be days which are great and everything goes as planned.There will be other days when we aren't sure why we got out of bed.Regardless of which kind of day it is, we can be assurred that GOD TAKES CARE OF OUR DAILY NEEDS." Emilie Barnes

Today is my dear Daddy's birthday and it's a special day as he is now 70 years old.
Unfortunately he is in Finland and I am in Italy so as I can't celebrate with him today
I want to dedicate my today's post for him...

I'm thankful for these beautiful red fruits and vegetable...

Thank you God for creating strawberries,pomegranates and tomatoes!


Do you believe there is power in praying? I hope so because there is!
Prayer helps us find strength for today and hope for the future.

The Bible tells us to pray constantly-
about everything!Pray about things that are small;
pray about things that are great...
God wants to hear from you!

Lord I come to you.
Thank you that you are the source of my fulfillment and the answer for my every need.
Thank you that you will give me strength for today and 
teach me how to walk with You.


 - Psalm 34:8 says, 
"Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him"
And this was a really good reminder for me:
This fact never changes but it changed my day:
God is good!
 -And while I was praying this morning I heard God telling me:
I fill you...

I FILL YOU...these words changed my day!

-And a song heard...changed my day.
"you hold my every moment...
...you are my healer...
...you are all I need..."

I'm thankful for my gifts,thank you God!♥

I red yesterday a story which I want to share with you:

"A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that 1,100 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.

Three minutes went by, and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace, and stopped for a few seconds, and then hurried up to meet his schedule.

A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping, and continued to walk.

A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.

The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried, but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally, the mother pushed hard, and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money, but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the most talented musicians in the world. He had just played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, on a violin worth $3.5 million dollars.

Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.

This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste, and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?

One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?"

Has the busy pace of life robbed you too?If so slow down and ask God to give you the inner peace;it will be given to you!When you allow God to reign over your heart,He will honor you with spiritual blessings that are too numerous to count...
God bless you!

Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. 
The old life is gone; a new life has begun!  
2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT

Wonderful words;we don't have to dwell on the past, all the old is gone and
God is doing a NEW THING!Receive it into your life;
God wants to bless you with A NEW THING!

Do you know a marriage counselor, Dr. Gary Chapman?
Maybe you have heard or red his book called The 5 Love languages...
It's a wonderful book for married couples to learn how to express commitment to a spouse. Every person has a “love language”, a primary way of expressing and interpreting love. After Dr Chapman for whatever reason, people are usually drawn to those who speak a different love language than their own.Would you like to know which is your love language and how to express love, simply by using the appropriate love language? There is now available a nice and quick quiz to discover your love language and you can also
participate the Love Language Challenge:A 5 week challenge  that helps you show love to your spouse by completing a weekly challenge. Each challenge will be tailored to your spouse's love language and each week you will be reminded to complete your challenge. 
So take the quiz and discover whatever your love language is:
Today as you show your affection to your boyfriend/girlfriend,fiancé or a spouse
it is also good to praise God as ultimately HE IS LOVE!
 May God bless your Valentine's Day!

This year the winter has been very cold here in Italy...we still have some snow and it continues  to be cold.
But this morning in spite of the cold I noticed that in the garden in a pot starts to appear a new growth ...
A new beginning... And it made me to remember that...
And this makes me feel the love a God...He creates new...also in me!

I needed encouragement...and it arrived by post...It felt amazing...But God knows!
And I really felt the love of God.
I feel the love of God in His word.He speaks to me!
When I open myself to His perfect LOVE I am touched by Him.
And it really does make me feel loved,the promise that I can cast all my anxiety on Him because

 This morning I was worried...and in the end for nothing (of course)...I know it's human nature to be concerned about the bad situations or problems in our world and in our personal lives,but if we are not careful our care turns into worry. 
Worry is caused by not trusting God to take care of the various situations in our lives...
God tells us not to worry but to cast our cares on Him.

It's easy to say don't worry...but I really want to learn to live
without worrying.So:

- oranges
I have a flu and I'm thankful for these beautiful oranges from which I get some vitamin C.
I made a nice Fight the flu-smoothie...

 After greeting my morning guest I enjoyed the view out of my bedroom window where 
the sun created a beautiful effect of light and shadows.And it felt so peaceful.
I remembered the Bible verse I red earlier in the morning:
His peace will guard your hearts and minds
as yo live in Christ Jesus...

Have a blessed day!
