Lesson learned the past few days: That we should focus on our blessings, on what we already have and how we can use that, and not on our limitations, on what we don't have. I thought about this when Pastor Tito showed us a video of Nick Vujicic.
And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own». Pastor Rubinho talked about this yesterday and it's important to think about this in these times of crisis. Many times, we worry about food and clothes but we don't have to worry about that. We don't have to ask God for that but we should ask to «grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ» II Peter 3:18

As I am a happy homemaker, I had to join this new Monday Feature that Sandra has created. Here it goes:
On my bedside table: The Bible and nothing else, which is not at all usual because I'm an avid reader. But I have just finished a book and am still looking for another good book to read.
On my TV: Disney Channel. DD is watching it.
On the menu for tonight: We've had leftovers. DH is travelling and when he's not at home, I don't always cook dinner.
On my To Do List: I just need to rest. I woke up early and had a very busy day.
New Recipe I tried last week: No new recipes
In the craft basket: Knitting material. We had our knitting tea this Saturday and I am very excited about it though I'm just starting and I'm still very confused.
Looking forward to: A new bedroom
Homemaking Tip for this week: I'm so tired that I cannot think of anything to post here!
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): Getting to know me, by Sandra. It was something very original and a great way of knowing one of my favourite bloggers better.
Lesson learned the past few days: We must never give up on people (I don't know if this makes sense in English, sometimes I just don't know how to express myself in English) because God can transform people's lives in a way that seems impossible to us. We tend to say that there's nothing that can be done, that people do not change, but that isn't true. The lady I stayed with in Lincoln last November told me that she has prayed for her husband for 37 years!!! And God has changed him and his life.
On my Prayer List: My Mum and her incoming surgery.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: «I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world» John 16:33
