2013 was a full year, full of emotion, new experiences, trials and joy. But is also went so quick! And as I look back I wish I could have stopped more often to wonder at God’s majesty in my life, to thank him for every single thing I receive from His hands. He has been moving and shaping me so much, probably like never before. So in 2014 I want to improve at being thankful, and I want to share this with you! Starting 1st of January I will be posting one picture a day of a blessings in my life. And I hope it will bless you as well!
Here I am again, in exactly the same spot I was last year. It has been a great experiment, posting my blessings, and God has blessed my attempt. I pray you benefited from it! For 2015 I have one word – STRENGTH, in all God has prepared for us. May we honour Him in everything we do! Happy New Year!
Our last scrabble game before parents in law go home. Sad…but we’be been so blessed by their presence.
So grateful for Skype, my family was with us for Christmas, even if only virtually.
Christmas Eve with family at church, what more can I wish for?
9 days left until my 365 blessings Project ends. It has been a great experience keeping up with these posts, evaluating and meditating daily on God’s blessings in our lives. But it will be a great relief when these are done, hopefully I will keep on the practice of counting my blessings.
So, what next for 2015? I’ve been thinking long and hard and I came to a decision. 2015 project will be NO FACEBOOK. Yes, that means for a year. I’ve learnt this year that Facebook does a lot of damage when it comes to relationships. It has its good sides, no doubt about it, but relationships have become superficial and empty. Saying ‘hello’ on FB messenger just to fell good that I’ve ticked a box and checked on someone does not really work. Phone calls are a lot better, a talk over coffee – perfect. I will be posting this message on Facebook with all details on how to get in touch with me. I am praying relationships will strengthen and that I will also have more time to read my books (rather than stalking people and posts on FB several times a day).
I will resume posting on this blog from time to time so feel free to check it out.
P.S. My blessing for today was feeling a bit better than yesterday as I am down with a fever.
Greatest surprise after work, our friends came to sing carols, fighting a mighty wind on a not so nice weather. #feelingloved
‘Premium service’ by lovely people who are always ready to serve. #atwork
Beautiful bay windows gleaming with fairy lights, wrapped around huge Christmas trees. Fancy, delicate glass ornaments hang from the branches, attracting every eye. Everyone is ready for Christmas! Or are they? Are you? IS JESUS FILLING YOUR HOUSE? Is He the guest of honour since you are celebrating His birthday?
After a long walk, there is nothing like family (4 members) squeezing into one bed and watching a movie together. #theadjustmentbeaureau #inlaws #bliss
From the train station and over the bridge, into the office. Greatest views in the morning, just before I go to work.
Chris’s parents are here! What a blessing to have them over for Christmas, definitively one to remember!
Another element to our tree using some fluffy balls I had leftover from another project. Happy!
