If you are like me, you get excited every time doors of opportunities and changes arise before you. I just can’t wait to go through them to find out all the challenges, risks – even the bad stuff – so I can prepare myself to deal with them. But many don’t share that attitude. And there is nothing wrong with you in being the opposite of me. The possibility of getting some people o ...[Read More]
What a joy it is being a girl! From early on we carry a deep sense of royalty in our hearts, strengthened by affirmations from those who love us, and day after day call us “My Princess!“ If not enough, we get pampered with beautiful pink bedrooms decorated with pictures of crowns and carriages, outfits that portray our noble title – just in case somebody doesn’t know, and the royalty m ...[Read More]
Fear can cripple you or it can make you stronger. It can even do a little bit of both. Fear is not of God, but God can use it for good. Fear led the midwives to allow Moses, a Jewish baby boy, to live when Pharaoh had ordered all the baby boys to be killed – an attempt to eliminate the promised deliverer for the Jews in Egypt (true story in the Bible). Fear led Joseph to take Mary and Jesus to Egy ...[Read More]
When we hear a little girl talk about her little world, we find an overflow of imaginative pictures working together in an amazing way. Maybe I should call this little world a big adventurous world. For instance, do you remember as a little girl, playing with your dolls under the dining table, naming each one of them, fixing the house with a bed made out of a shoebox cover, a kitchen towel as a bl ...[Read More]
Life is so beautiful, full of colors and shapes for a little girl who loves to draw flowers. Grass is greener and the blue sky is filled with funny shaped clouds, each one telling a different cute story. Isn’t that how little girls perceive their world? Why should that change? It’s so much fun! Some girls, though, can’t see all the beautiful colors of a rainbow in the sky or the ...[Read More]
I love to watch little kids playing hide and seek. They are so creative in “hiding” themselves in places where they can actually see you and make sure you see them also, just in case. Isn’t that a great idea, a safe place to hide where you know that those who love you and care for you can find you? This is how King David, a man who God called the man after His own heart, expresse ...[Read More]
Think about the beach, the water, the nice breeze, and beautiful weather; these are all very pleasant and bring so much relaxation. But they can all be changed by some kind of force. Last year I was on the beach in South Carolina and observed these rocks inconveniently left on the sand by the force of the water, a good example of what I would call visual pollution. Then I was reminded of a constan ...[Read More]
Life would be easier if everyone looked the same, spoke the same language, and had the same likes and dislikes, don’t you think? Ok, I am being sarcastic here. One of the most amazing features God displayed in mankind was uniqueness. Do you need proof? Read about people’s DNA. There are no two persons that have the same exact DNA or genetic information. Talk about uniqueness!
