Day 366 – Last day

31_DEC

“… now my eyes have seen you.” Job 42:5b

(Wow! Last day! I did it!!! Couple days ago I was thinking about what picture I would take for my last day… Then this caught my attention 2 days ago when I was taking another picture. The tree growing horizontally made me think about a timeline… Then, yesterday I went downstairs and took some pictures of it but hopping that I could take it again today… And it happened! I think this picture represent this project for me. The trees on each side like the beginning and the end and in the middle, all that happened this year…  It was a cycle that ended, but also it brings me the feeling that I have way more to see and to live! And surely I have seen God through it all!)


Day 364 – Trust in God

29_DEC

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” John 14:1

 


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 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.)

 


Day 345 – There is more to see

10_DEC

“Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny.” Ecclesiastes 6:10

(It was Day 147 when I heard God speaking to me saying it was the right time to come back to Brazil. I was very reluctant and after my parents and I talked about it, I went out for a walk on the neighborhood. The way I heard him was through a poem He was putting in my heart… Something like this:

“I saw the most beautiful flowers…

I heard the most beautiful birds…

I cried at the most beautiful sunshine…

I gazed at the most beautiful sunset…

I smelled the beauty of spring

I sweat at the heat of summer

I played with the leaves of autumn”

And He kept on going… Well, it hasn’t been easy now that I’m here… I often cried and wish I could fly back right away… But today I think I heard Him again… In a split of a second… I’ve been noticing all these beautiful flowers all around… They just get me you know… Today I had couple minute of quietness and solitude with nature and I saw these little flowers… It took me 3 shots to hear Him saying that I haven’t seen it all… There is more beauty to see…

By the way, sorry for the blurry picture… I didn’t have much time… and also, tomorrow I’ll be traveling to the state of Mato Grosso to see my dear childhood friends!! Just so if you want to know where I’m living in Brazil, is around here!I’ll stay there for 10 days! I’ll try to post everyday but if I don’t is because either the internet is not good or I’ll be to busy enjoying it! God bless you all!)
