Today I've been thinking about life...
How it's short...And do I really remember that
everything in life is most fundamentally a gift?  
 Every day is a splendid gift from God...

My dear cousin Hanna died today.We weren't very close;
I haven't been much in touch with her during the last years while living abord,
but still she was my dear cousin.And the past days I have been thinking about her so much,
and I prayed for her...
But her time here on the earth came to an end... I'm so happy she had Jesus
in her heart and she is now in an amazing place...
But still.I'm thinking...Life is a splendid gift!

...and I want to remember it better!That this day, every day is
a very precious gift of God.Like when I receive a gift from a person I'm thankful
so why not be thankful for every day, for every moment...Life is short and we don't know what tomorrow holds...
But we have today...
Today is a splendid gift from God.

Today is unique!Thank you Heavenly Father for the beautiful gift of today!
I want to live fully each moment today and thank you that you will
give me all I need!I praise you and I thank you...

My dear reader if you don't have yet a personal relationship with God I encourage you
to make your best decision ever and pray this simple prayer:

SO I NOW WANT TO LIVE FOR YOU.Forgive all my sins and come to live in my heart.
I acknowledge YOU as MY SAVIOR AND LORD.Guide my life.
In Jesus name.Amen.

Be blessed!And live your life fully! 

The best gift of salvation is that I am forgiven and that
I am free!Jesus already paid my debt!

And as I am saved I am in Christ...and I am blessed!
I AM BLESSED!What a wonderful gift of salvation!

Salvation really means that I abandon myself to God, and I leave myself to His hands.
 I don't have to worry about anything,
God takes care of me!

God's word is food for our souls! 
Memorize it.Confess it.
Let the words of the Bible enter into your mind and descend into your heart...
And let God's word transform your whole being!
Have a blessed day!

The Bible says in Proverbs 17:22 that 
“a happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing….”

So it's good to take time to laugh!

My sons unfortunately don't see their cousins very often,but
when they do meet each other they always have such a good
time together. Here above my youngest son is trying to 
step in to his cousins shoes!Only 10 sizes bigger than his!
Time of laugh! :)

Making funny faces...good time together!
Laughing is so good! 

A funny moment with my kids...while getting out from a mall in a hot summer
day we found this "cooling" spot...From the grid construction came out some 
wonderfully cool air and we had such a good laugh! :)

So...laughing is good!
As you go about your day today, make this your goal: Rejoice in the Lord!  

Have a blessed day, 
you are loved!

God's word is food for our souls! 
Memorize it.Confess it.
Let the words of the Bible enter into your mind and descend into your heart...
And let God's word transform your whole being!
Have a blessed day!

I love Ann's new gift list for September.
The list is a good reminder that we can be thankful for
even things small,tiny,little, colors!
I love colors and I thank God for creating so many wonderful colors!
Today I'm thankful for 3 gifts yellow!

Yellow lemons have a beautiful,intense and energy color!
This morning,as nearly every day I took one beautiful,yellow lemon and 
made me some lemon water before having breakfast.
There are enormous benefits of lemon juice and water in your everyday life 
so thank you God for creating yellow lemons!

The yellow color of turmeric is strong and it could be called a mustard yellow.
This is also other yellow ingredient I love to use in the mornings...
I add a teaspoon of it to my smoothie...Turmeric has many benefits for our healthy.
So thank you God for creating the yellow turmeric!

I love yellow sunflowers,they are just so joyful!And I love the idea that these 
flowers always turn toward the sun...
It's a good reminder for us that we can turn ourselves to God to have light and
joy in our life! 
So thank you God for creating the yellow sunflowers!
