Special night for the girls!

 Hi friends! Hope you are doing fine and having fun preparing for the joyous season. About me, I am having fun too despite of the hectic schedule because of the season. But best season of the year. This night I am going to meet the other girls in our group that is called " Taste of the earth" to a dinner date. Not all the  members could come, but still we decided to enjoy the night. We are a bunch of girls who have  different nationalities who finds joy and comfort being with each other.
Here I am ready to depart for the night. Excited huh!


This is the place where we having our dinner. Hovde gård. It is both a hotel and a restaurant. It was an old school and a barn for some years ago. 


Meet the young once  and the young girls
Me and Jessa, who both came from the Philippines

Joanna and Chris from USA

Monica from Poland. It was her first time to meet us. She is new here in Norway.


Randi, a Norwegian and Thea from the Philippines.

       Leny from the left  side is from the Philippines and Maria to the right is from Bulgaria.

Cheers for the coming year.

     Anyway, we  also came there for the food, so these are what we ordered. 


                             We were all hungry, but picture first for the girls.....

and me too!

After eating we had exchange gift and this is what I got. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures of the other's gifts because we were having so much fun.



Anyway, after eating and opening the gifts, we decided to talk about our achievements and good memories this year, challenges that we had been through and plans for next year. Everybody shares the good memories and one of the best is what we had done as a group last summer. Going to the beach, danzing Zumba and out in the restaurant for dinner. Some of them that are still new here in Norway, struggles with the language and getting a work. But still with hope that one day, everyhing will be alright.
 We already had a plan for the month of January which is we are going to the Bowling hall.  In February, it will be a love month party which I will be organizing. Or else many of us will going to travel to our home countries to visit our homelands next year. 
Anyway, before midnight, time to say goodbye and while we wait for our turn to pay our bills, we took the chance to take pictures of each other.


Me of course since I am the author! :)

                  And the group wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Bye for now. Ending this post with  a prayer  for you and me:

Dear God, I pray that we desire to love you with all our hearts, souls and strengths. 
That we should not be friend of the world and forget your words.
I pray for your love to reign in our hearts.
We are in need of your wisdom to avoid the virus of this world.
Fill our mouths with your words....in every battle we take.
I pray in Jesus name.

Much love to you all!

Merry Christmas!

    Christmas time is around the corner. One can feel it, smell it and taste this time of the year. Some are happy, others are sad. Some are wishing, others not. What kind of feelings this season brings to you? To me?
As I ponder about it I could not help to think what these two words means to me.  And since this is all about Jesus, the place I can find answer is from the word of God.  
So come along and ponder with me:)
                                              
                                                                       M: Mercy



                                           E- Eternal life


R- Ransom


R- Refuge

Y- Yoke


C- Christ

H- Happiness


R- Redemption


I- Immanuel


S- Salvation


T- Thankfulness

M- Magi

A- Awesome

S- Satisfaction



So for me Merry Christmas means:
M- Mercy
E- Eternal life
R- Ransom
R- Refuge
Y- Yoke
C- Christ
H- Happiness
R- Redemption
I- Immanuel
S- Salvation
T-Thankfulness
M- Magi
A- Awesome
S- Satisfaction


So I wish everybody Merry Christmas and may you find joy in celebrating Jesus birthday. And remember he is the greatest gift of 
all!

JOY


A blessed morning!

Entertainment!

Hi friends! How are you doing? Very much excited and busy for the coming Christmas?
Anyway, I am also preparing for this joyous season, but sometimes I get so tired and then I just want to be entertained by a book or by watching a film. Yesterday, a young blogger from the Philippines: Fiel- Kun said that this film ( The Christmas shoes) is worth watching. So I search for the film in you tube and there it was. Ready to watch. So I watched the film and cried a lot. But it was a beautiful film anyway.

When we were in Prague last fall, there was no problem to be entertained. The musicians  were everywhere and played their different instruments to entertain and to earn money. Why not? An honest way to earn a living.


I was not sure what kind of instrument this man was using. Do you? 

Drummer boy:)

This group  both sung and danced. They were there to show the tourist they tradition. It was very interesting and strange to hear their language. And how about the crowd? We were from different countries and have different languages. I believe it was very strange for others too.




These beautiful ladies showed their national dance. Danced so gracefully!





Those were very entertaining!

How about you?
What kind of entertainment do you like?

Ending this post with a prayer for you and me:

Thankfulness

Thank you Oh God for your words that bring us more closer to you.
Thank you Jesus for making us righteous in God's sight.
Justified by faith.
I pray that we will always be thankful
for all the days that you are giving to us.
To make each day memorable and a blessing.

I pray in Jesus name.
Amen

JOY
