prayer - Dear God, give me the name and identity that You have for me, even in a foreign land.


Mission Hair Care

September means challenging myself... I've always liked to experiment with my hair, like trying different colors etc. I've basically had every color there is (i sometimes also use different color extensions) for fun. Though as we now we're getting older and not any younger, my hair is not as strong as it used to be. It got even more damaged when i went orange and then ombre. I figured that i've been kinda cruel to it. Also using heat and chemicals and so on (not saying that i will stop completely) I just i haven't really let my hair rest for longer periods. So, i decided from now on... I'm going to be more caring toward my hair. Starting September: I'm going to do any and everything to re-new it, to let it rest from anything chemical or any type of extensions, blow drying etc. Naturally cure it. Basically going back to basics, try to get it at it's original state and condition. Hopefully it will look better, feel better get longer, stronger and healthier. I will try one method first and see if it works, if not i will try something different and update everything here on the blog-  My natural hair has "a jerry curl" structure. It's going to be really hard for me to stay away from the hair dryer and straightener.


I think I'm going to later post a before pic and then update with newer pictures every month maybe? Will see....


Wish me luck and let the challenge begin.

Legacy Lives

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”


“But I will never stop helping and loving people the way Jesus said to.”


“To give someone a piece of your heart, is worth more than all the wealth in the world.” 


“But for me the sweetest contact with God has no form. I close my eyes, look within, and enter a deep soft silence. The infinity of God's creation embraces me.” 



godiz - I wish there were more brave men in this world like Michael Jackson.

Rasp-Berry Caves

These simple but so delicate butter cookies are baked in muffin pans. The dough contains vanilla sugar (or vanilla extract.) An indentation is made in each cookie and filled with a little raspberry jam before baking. Very popular over here.

INGREDIENTS:
½ lb(2 Sticks) Butter, at room temperature
⅔ cupSugar
2 cupsFlour
1½ tspBaking Powder
1 TbspVanilla Sugar*
8 tspRaspberry Jam, or any flavor jam
*or 1 Tsp. of Liquid Vanilla Added To Butter Mixture.
DIRECTIONS:
Using an electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugar until light. Combine flour, baking powder and vanilla sugar and add to butter mixture. Beat at low to combine. Divide this very soft dough in a half and then divide each into eight pieces.
Roll each piece into a ball (you will have 16). Line 16 muffin cups with muffin paper. (We use holiday foil bake cups that can be set on a cookie sheet; you don't have to use muffin tins.) Place a ball of dough in each cup and make an indentation in the top of each with a floured thumb. Fill the indentation with 1/2 tsp. raspberry jam. Bake in a 350F oven 20 minutes or until slightly golden and set.

I Love You Daddy

Growing up my dad was an incredible father to me and my sister. He went beyond his ways and did everything for us as kids. I will never forget the love he gave us as youngsters. It's all recorded. Though my mother and father divorced when i was pretty young. Reason being my dad's family and other things around it. Basically I grew up with my mother who provided a living for us. My dad was always in the background and tried his best to maintain a relationship with us and our mother. Unfortunately during a big part of my life, as i got older my dad suffered from depression and other personal things. This made me angry and hurt as a teen, it kept me from talking to him for a long long time. As I am older now... everything has fallen into place and i see and understand things clearer. My relationship with my dad has been growing stronger little by little each year. And i still feel the love he used to shower us with as kiddos, a genuine heart made of gold. I know for sure that my dad would go out of his way for his children. I feel it! I just want to say that i love you daddy. <3

We Love You and We Miss You!

"The Serenity Prayer"

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

Amen.

I Can't Deny

You put my soul from worst to best
That is why I treasure you my dearest Friend
You just don't know what you have done for me
You even pushed me to the best that I can be
You really are an angel sent from above
To take care of me and shower with love
When I'm with you I will not cry even a single tear
And your touch have chased away all of my fear
You have given me a life that I could live worthwhile
It is even better every time you smile
It so magical those things you've made
To bring back my faith that almost fade
Now my life is a dream come true
It all began when I was loved by you
Now I have found what I am looking for
It's you and your love and nothing more
Cause you have given me this feeling of contentment
In my life something I've never felt
I wish I could talk till the end of day
But now I'm running out of things to say
So I'll end by the line you already know
"I LOVE YOU" more than what I could show.


He changed my world with a blink of an eye
That is something that I can not deny.

Thank you Jesus

I'm So Brave

AHHHHHH!!! I just helped a little birdie out to the free word... who was stuck in our kitchen. I have no clue how and when it got in? I just heard my doggy barking at something and at first i thought it was the mail-man. When i saw that it was a bird, I panicked!! I didn't want to scare it but... I myself is terrified from heights and flying things. Poor thing was trying to get out the closed kitchen window :-(
I knew the only way to let it out was to open the balcony door. But i didn't know how to? Help! had to call my grandad as support. He finally convinced me to do it! So, as he was guiding me through the "strategy" lol I was holding the phone in one hand, in the other hand my dog Theeo (as protection) and called on my dog Prince to follow (as backup) while wearing my hoodie lol as i was slowly walking backwards (moonwalking) toward the balcony door. Talk about pathetic ha ha! But I did it! WooHoo!!

I'm so happy :-) that It's out flying as it should and that i was brave enough to do it. Pphheeww!! thanks grandaddy, I could not have done it without you <3

King James Version (KJV)


14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
