Holiday time

Standard

In August I went on holiday to different places for short periods.

( Mallorca- Spain and Germany)

In Mallorca the palm trees were my favourite, ( see here)

In Germany the lakes for swimming were super.

This is the dress I bought in Mallorca.

With Spanish temperatures in Bavaria I could wear it again.

Here is the proof….. I went into this lake too….

Don’t Worry

Standard

We all have our worries from time to time and

I always have to remind myself that things will work out.

We need to have faith.

In Luke 25 verse 12 it says:

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?

Here are some more reminders for you,

and I wish you a worry free day!

 

worry1

 

Sometimes you have to stop worrying,

wondering and doubting.

Have faith that things will work out,

maybe not how you planned,

but just how it’s meant to be.

 

worry2

 

 

worry3

 

Every struggle in your life has shaped you

in to the person that you are today.

Be thankful for the hard times;

they can only make you stronger.

Enjoy the good in each moment,

and have a wonderful day!

They are bigger in size, as we had lots of rain,

still not quite red as we do not have enough sun, but…..

All things grow with love!

Slowly they are getting red though, see for yourself:

if you see it at just the right moment,

can be confused with paradise.
