Don’t take things for granted!


‘Wouldn’t it be great if we don’t even take simple things in life for granted.

Like having clean water when we open the tap…’

This is what my son said yesterday.

It comes after we lived for two weeks without a flushing toilet….just a bucket of water next to it.

Now again we have the luxury of pressing the convenient button to flush it again… yes pure luxury!

The bathroom is not finished yet though….


Practicing gratefulness makes life much more amazing and full of miracles.

Give Thanks with a grateful heart……

My favourite!

I thank the LORD for guiding me and shining his light on my path. He has made me stronger and richer on my way.

With this I want to give thanks to everyone,

who has made my year 2012 a wonderful year.

It had ups and downs, and I am grateful I could cope with everything.


“I can do everything through HIM who gives me strength.”

Philippians 4:13

my favourite verse which gives me strength!


Since I am blogging I have experienced more love, kindness and friendship than ever before.



with all my heart!

Wishing you all a peaceful

and wonderful Christmas !

What if you woke up today with only the things that you thanked God for yesterday?

We have so many choices in life, in shops,  in the internet and we keep wanting more and more.  Happy with what we have, no we need to have more. It is time to think of those things which really matter and are not available in shops. …..and don’t take so much for granted.













Be thankful for this day, and you will fill it with joy. Be appreciative of those around you, and they will bring much value to your life.
















Count your blessings, give thanks  with a grateful heart every morning and evening!

When I wake up I am thankful that I am alive for another new day. I give thanks that I have enough food, that I have a good job, great friends, that I can experience love and friendship. I give thanks that I can give love, and kindness, that I am healthy, and that I can enjoy sunshine and rain, and the beauty of nature! There is lots more to be thankful for, what is on your list?
