Don't Quit!!!

Good Morning Everyone :)
I hope you're having a Happy Tuesday!!
.... So I found this poem/quote online and I loved it, it inspired me!!
See there are those days when you're so close to you're blessing, some give up or others are close to giving up before getting there, they just can't take it. I for one have experienced those moments when I think thats it I am throwing in the towel. However I am happy to say I have great family and friends and of course Jesus who have always urged me to keep going or try again.
Love them Tons!!
& I must say because of it I have seen miracles, blessings and great lessons unfold in my life. Without persistance, support and these 3 things (M.B.GL's) I would not be who I am.
So today if you've thought, are thinking or have thought in the past or ever think in the future to give up, DON'T GIVE UP!! There is always hope... & remember Jesus is always waiting for you ;) He makes each day a much greater blessing and He makes perseverance much much worth it!
Remember this path (be it life or church) is not about those who begin it, its about those who FINISH IT!!

This Past Saturday

I had to write this post because I was so fascinated and really aww-ed!!
On Saturday, we were in London and we stayed at our dear friend's home Sarah & Danny.
They have an adorable 8 month Baby Girl named Emma.
While Sarah got ready and so did everyone else for "The Jesus Revolution" I carried Emma 'trying' to put her to sleep, no chance she wanted to stay awake jejeje. It was okay by me I liked carrying her.
So since she did not want to go to sleep I started walking around the apartment going window to window looking outside with her in my arms. Until we stopped at their front door window where the view of outside was perfectly visible. We both stood there staring outside, until I started watching Emma instead, I saw how mesmerized she was just soaking the whole view in, she was nose and hand on the window staring outside.
At that moment I started thinking Jesus' creation is truly Beautiful, I could see through Emma's expression and concentration, she was mesmerized looking outside and I thought thats how we should always be when we step outside, for God is truly a great creator making all things beautiful in His sight and really for us too!!
I would have wished I was a good photographer like Emma's mama is, to have taken a picture of her, but I am not so I watched and... I write hopefully you can picture it!!
Here is a beautiful song which I translated for my blog ~ I love it, its one of my favourites!! Enjoy!


Thanks a Day - Nov. 24, 25, 26 & 27!!

I've been super busy this long weekend (for me) I was at a great event Saturday called "The Jesus Revolution" & Sunday at church & Monday doing a deep cleaning and remodelling of our basement!
But all that being said... Thanks a Day for my 4 days :D
NOV. 24- A Sound You Heard:
I was thankful for this day because all day I heard the sound of worship music and later at night worship from the congregation it was wonderful!! Oh & might I add I also heard baby Emma's baby talk in the morning :D so cute!!
NOV. 25- Sky:
I am always thankful for our beautiful sky... seeing as my favourite colour is sky blue, its so relaxing!! Thank you Jesus for you artistic creations!!
NOV. 26- In The Cupboard:
I am super thankful for mugs!! I spent my day at home this day (day-off), later on in the day my mom called me asked me if I wanted to share coffee with her. I said sure and we sat together sipping each a cup of coffee paired with pastelitos de pina- pinapple sweet bread yum! It was so relaxing and heart warming to share that moment with her. [] < Click for recipe!
NOV. 27- Tree:
Today I am thankful for our front lawn tree :D I love nature and trees are wonderful all year round!! In spring they blossom, in summer they are green, in fall they are multi-colour and in winter they stand full of snow!! Love 'Em!

By the time full worship came around I felt Jesus had answered the prayer I had within, it was wonderful! So today its awesome because I began a new!!

NOVEMBER 14 - Man Made
For man-made ohh def. clothes... I mean there are tons of things I am thankful for which are man-made; but I give clothes a plus, why? you may ask... well one its much needed it covers you up, and two its so pretty fun, its like art  & well three it keeps you cozy!!

this is one of my skirts designs!!

NOVEMBER 15 - In my bag
I am thankful for my bible, I carry it around in my purse all the time. Its heavy (even though its not that big) but I can never bring myself to take it out of my purse, it feels necessary to me. I am thankful for it because everytime I look into my purse it is an excellent reminder of who I am, what I have and how blessed I am to have been given all of it!!

November 16-  The view from your window
Now because thanks a day is seeing the good in each day I have to see the good in this one. I don't have much of a window its more like a hole in the wall (I share a basement apartment with my sister). A hole which we constantly look at and wonder how on earth that can be our escape route, see we are latinas, so to squeeze through will be a mission jejeje!

But none-the-less... I guess I am thankful for that shrub which covers the only existing window we have in our basemnet lol... it covers it so no one can peer in to our room lol... though I must admit it has given me multiple scares at night or on a windy day. Thanks Shrub jejeje!
