The Lens of Possibility

What if everybody in the whole world decided to start looking at life through the lens of possibility?
There would be no boring people. There would be no average days. There would be no mediocre activity. There would be no reason for prolonged discouragement and constant whining and complaining. Nothing to hold us back from conquering the enemies that steal our joy or disturb our souls.
Everything would be possible because our focus would be on the Lord Jesus, who makes all things possible.

Hope you had a great day like mine!

This Too Shall Pass

Just feel dishearten and burdened after a long talked to a friend today. 
Dear Friend, 
This too shall pass...

In the middle of the turbulence surrounding you
These trying times that are so hard to endure
In the middle of what seems to be your darkest hour
Hold fast your heart and be assured

This too shall pass, like every night that's come before it
He'll never give you more than you can bear
This too shall pass, so in this thought you be comforted
For it's in His hands, this too shall pass, oh yes

The Father knows the tears you cry before they fall
He feels your pain, His heart and yours are one
The Father knows that sorrow's heavy chains are strong
But with His strength, you'll overcome

So set your eyes, set them on the mountain
And lift your hands up to the sky
And let His arms of love surround you
Let Him take you to the other side

This too shall pass, like every night that's come and gone before it
I'm so glad, He never gives [Incomprehensible] more than you can bear
This too shall pass, so in this thought you be comforted
For it's in his hands, this too shall pass

It's in His hands, this too shall pass
Oh, it shall pass

A Friend

Home Decors

I admire people that are creative. People that can create something beautiful out of simple things in just a blink of an eye :).
I am not one of them. In able for me to create something, I always need an inspirational focal point or sometimes I go with the vibes. Something that I haven't seen yet, but once I've seen them I knew that it is the one I want. This doesn't happen all the time though. I tend to be very picky sometimes. Or maybe decorating is not my thing. I am more interested in fragrances and essential oils lol. 
But I love  and enjoy looking at decorating blogs and fascinated of how they do it. 

I stumble on this awesome blog about home decor. You can check it here

I am pretty simple when it comes to home decors. I like modern or traditional style. I love linens and lots of pillows. 
I love earthy tones with the combinations of light shades pastel colors, preferably beige or white and some dark colors. That's boring right? lol. Bright colors and patterns tend to overwhelm me. I am not there yet but I want to add one or two accents if needed. I love open concept kitchen and a dining and living room with big bay windows facing beautiful view :) 

Anyway, I am inspired to try to do some of the ideas that I've seen in some decorating blogs I love to visit and hopefully I can do it right lol. I love learning new things and I hope that I have ample patience to do it too.

This Is The Day!

Life is a flower for which love is the honey ~ Victor Hugo
                                           Roses and daisies are my favorite flowers! 
                                                                   A love in roses ...

and a friendly daisies...

These simple things makes me smile, the wondrous creation of God :) 

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalms 118:24, 29
How many ways can one complain about life? In most cases there is always a choice. Even if things are up in the wall, we can still choose how we react to every situation.  In Gal 5:22-23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy , peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control". Here we have a whole range of Godly reactions to our situation plus faith, hope and prayer and how else can we react than what the Psalmists suggests, "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it"? I know how hard and busy life can be or how cruel people sometimes, day to day struggles, difficulties and hopeless situation, but God made this day! TODAY! This day! It is our day! What we do with it may have human limitations, but always remember, nothing, nothing can take us out of the love that God has for us and we can rejoice and be glad in this day. Rain or shine, rejoice!
Today I will have self control and I will be glad in it :)

My Mother's Love

I can see the Father in my mother's smile
In her touch, strength of His hands
with my mother arms around me
I can feel God's love surround me
To help me learn to sit, to walk, to stand

Her love is patient
Her love is kind
She always seems to have the other one in mind
instinctively a mother knows her love was meant to share
and in my mother's love, I've come to know the Father's care

I can feel the Father when my mother prays
fervently she whispers my own name
With my mother's prayers to guide me
and the Father here beside me
my heart will always know that I'll be fine

Down on her knees
she ask the Lord to use my life,
to find His plan
to know His will and take my step...
