Over the last few days I have had so many things to be thankful to God about. I have been thankful for his presence in my life, for the blessings He has poured upon me.
But most of all of the last few days I have been thankful that He speaks into my life. Daily I feel Him whisper words of love into my ears as He guides and directs my life. He reveals my heart to me, teaches me and shows me in which areas of my life I need to grow. Daily He directs me closes to Him.

Thankful Heart: Day 2

Today I am thankful for BLUE SKY and SUNSHINE. It has been about a week since I saw a glimpse of the sun. Today I am so over joyed to experience the sun. Being South African and a person who loves summer I have missed the sun very much over. This cold, cloudy winter season in Switzerland. When the sun comes out I drop everything to run outside and feel the sun on my skin. A couple weeks ago I saw the sun shining of the hill so of course I needed to get myself there. Knowing how important the sun is to me my husband packed me in the car so we could chance after the sun light. We raced to this hill only to be in the sun for less than 5 minutes because of clouds. So we set off again to find Sunlight. We ended up parking along the side of a main road near a building construction. It wasn’t the most glamorous or romantic place to be but it was wonderful to feel the sun on my skin for 15min before it disappeared again. Today I am thankful to God for the blue sky and sunshine.

Hope that you all enjoy your day and can think of something to be thankful about.

Thankful Heart: Day 1

I realized that I have so many things in life to be thankful to God for but I often forget about them and end up focused on the one things that I don’t have. So I have decided to embark on a journey in which I will daily recognize and thank God for the blessings He has poured out in my life. Today I am choosing to be thankful to God for saving my life. Being a Christian now for many years I sometimes forget the most important thing that God has done for me. Nothing else is more important in my life than my relationship with God, I am so thankful that God saved me and made a way for me to have a relationship with Him.

What are you thankful for?

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Spent Sunday afternoon painting this little one. It has been a few days since I have painted, so it was very relaxing for me. This painting has inspired me to do a series of animals.
