The present of life

It 's Friday again and that means that it's time for another Five minute Friday post.

Today we are writing about : Present


I love presents. Apparently, receiving gifts is one of the 5 love languages and I must say that what I love about it is that it makes you feel special, loved. 
So I guess I can agree that it is a love language. It’s nice and loving that someone thought about you and wanted to give you something. In that way they show that they care about you, appreciate you, that you mean something to them.

It makes me think about the presents that God gives. The God Who loves us so much that He gave His only Son to us , to die on the Cross for us, so that we can be saved and live eternally (go to heaven) . 
A God Who is love and gave us the gift of life together with a  plan that we are supposed to follow if we want to be truly happy.
 Today as we live our lives let us remember Him Who loves us so much, Who gives so freely of all that we need. 
Let us honor Him with our lives, let us live lives of gratitude and let us pour out our lives for those in need. Let’s choose a life that glorifies Him !


For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NIV

Hi Chan! I just found out one of my co-worker's love language is receiving gifts. Gift giving is such a sweet thing for the giver and the receiver!

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.
I still have a s…

What Kids Wore Wednesday; Kitty love (day 11)

Ir's Wednesday so it's time for another Kids outfit post. As I mentioned in my last What Kids Wore Wednesday post, Nevaeh really loves bunnies a lot and she loves clothes with bunnies on them. In the same way Yovannah really loves cats and clothes with cats on them. We mostly buy clothes from H & M because they have cute items of reasonable quality and low prices and we had gotten a gift card from H & M a while back so we are used to shopping there.
They happen to have a lot of cats and bunnies in their collection for some reason, so the girls could not be more pleased with shopping there. They get to pick their own clothes so when Yovannah saw this cute black skirt, she really had to have it. I love it too. It is made out of ‘leather look’ fabric and it has this cute face on it and on the top of the skirt there are two ears sticking out.
In the pictures she is wearing it with a blue/grey-ish top with a cat on it and dark grey tights with a black stripy pattern on t…
