Day 360 – Nativity Scene

25_DEC

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David  for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!” Isaiah 9:6-7

(One of my favorite passages… And another Christmas decor at home.)

Day 359 – It’s Christmas Eve!

24_DEC

“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him.” 1 John 4:9

(Christmas decor. After 11 years, it does feel good to spend Christmas with family but really weird to feel so hot and sweaty instead of cold and snow… 🙂 Merry Christmas!)


Day 358 – Bedroom window

23_DEC

“Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him…” Ephesians 3:17a

(Shot from my bedroom window. I’ve been thinking a lot about this: What I see from my window or what I see through the window… I might develop the idea and incorporate it in my new blog for next year! I think that is a lot to tell in pictures like this… Let’s see what happens…)


Day 357 – Beauty from the window

22_DEC

“Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.” Psalm 136:26

(My little camera really broke… with only 9 days to go… and here I just can’t go and buy a new one… it is way too expensive… And I just can’t picture myself without a camera… I’ve been carrying my little one for over 6 years I guess… I have to use the pro camera that I have… But I’m scared to walk around with it here… I guess it would be a extra challenge that I’ll have to figure out how to conquer till the end… This is taken from my living room window…)

 


From Day 353 to Day 356

Day 356 – A new beginning

21_DEC

“…Put on your new nature, created to be like God…” Ephesians 4:24a

(I was at the airport waiting for my flight to go back home. When I found out that I didn’t get the window seat I made sure I had the shot for today… and with all this talk about the world ending today and since the sky was kind of dramatic, I took this picture! And my camera just broke after that… Let’s see what happens tomorrow…

Well, now I’m back home… Not really excited about it… Is good to be with family, but now is time to face reality and find the right path for my life… just like a new beginning…)

Day 355 – Thank you!

20_DEC

“Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!” 2 Corinthians 9:15

(Should I say anything else? – Sunset by the Araguaia River)

//

Day 354 – Grace

19_DEC

“But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.” Psalm 86:15

(I have to say that I had to Google Translate egret… I have no idea how it is called in English… Anyhow… what a beautiful bird… full of grace!)

Day 353 – Floating boat

18_DEC

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

(Another great sunset…)

Day 346 – The window seat again!

11_DEC

“Honor and majesty surround him; strength and beauty fill his sanctuary.” Psalm 96:6

I came to realize that I love to fly! And when I can get the window seat is even better! I always see the majesty of God when I’m flying… I love to see the cities, the fields, the clouds, the colors, the designs nature draws on the land… Is so inspiring… This was when the airplane was taking off from São Paulo to Goiania.)
