Day 275 – Children of God

“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith.” Galatians 3:26

(I’ve been wanting to take pictures of people for quite some time… Today I went to one of my favorites places and there it is!)


Day 224 – Parents

“Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” Exodus 20:12

(Tomorrow is my mom’s birthday! And today’s post is to honor them! Dad’s birthday was on the 3rd. That is an old picture of them but is the only one that is not packed. I wanted to get their wedding picture but that is not possible…

So, mom, happy birthday! Thank you so much for your love and unconditional care! Love you!)

Day 210 – To a special one on a special day!

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. ” Numbers 6:24-26

(Today this precious girl is turning 8! Her mom is my best friend! She is right now in Brazil for vacation… We already celebrated her birthday here like a month ago… But I still wish she was here today… I remember when she was born… She is so sweet… I love this bible passage and I really mean this blessing to her life! So, since she is not here, I took a picture of picture of her… I also posted a picture of her sister on her birthday as well but back then I wasn’t writing anything. These two girls mean the world to me… Definitely the hardest part of me moving back to Brazil is the fact that I won’t have them around… They taught me what friendship is all about… It is about breaking the barriers of age and just know that no matter what you go through, they will always be there for me as they always have been and I will always be here (or any place else) for them with my arms and heart always open… I love them…

*Happy 8th Birhtday!)

Day 169 – Looking forward

Color and Theme Project: Week 7 – Color: Blue – Theme: Discouragement

I claim this scripture to overcome discouragement:

“David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished.” 1 Chronicles 28:20

(Do not be Loodiscouraged, we got a lot to do!)

Day 163 – A good attitude!

Color and Theme Project: Week 7 – Color: Blue – Theme: Discouragement

I claim this scripture to overcome discouragement:

“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” Psalms 27:14

(I have an feeling that blue is going to be a difficult color… Well, I wanted to go to the beach today. After work I changed my route so I could catch the bus to the beach. As I was waiting for the bus there was the man who sells roasted coconut and the hot dogs. Is interesting that months ago I was observing the woman that also works there and I thought about taking a picture of them. It happen so that the man was wearing all blue and serving a man also in blue. I think this man and the woman that works there are very courageous… they are there throughout the year, always smiling and talking with people with such positive attitudes. Examples to follow! After that I did not go to the beach, well, I’ll go tomorrow.)

Day 142 – The red coat

Color and Theme Project: Week 4 – Color: Red – Theme: Loneliness

I claim this scripture to overcome loneliness:

“The Lord your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

(What a beautiful verse! I was at the train station this morning and I see this woman wearing the red coat… I knew then that was the picture for today… I hope that for the next days we learn together that God is here with us… always!)

Day 88 – Waiting…

“The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.” Ecclesiastes 7:8

(Patience is a virtue…)

Day 79 – It will come!

“All these good things will come upon you if you will obey the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 28:2

(Happy Birthday Sister!)

Day 76 – The bus ride

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

(I was going to work and praying to God to speak to me. The girl and her mom went in the bus. The little girl was so curious and excited to be there… Her mom, was there to take care of her. Her hand was right there just in case something happens. That’s how God is… taking care of us all the time. Shouldn’t we trust Him more?)

Day 75 – Fly butterfly, fly…

“I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.” Psalm 130:5
