Random 5 from this week



I was an early bird this morning, watching the sun creating a pretty play of shadows in the kitchen. Before the day starts with errands, I'll journalize here 5 Random things from this week:
  • I have slept a lot this week ... I connect the sudden need for sleep to the start of the pollen season. Besides the need to sleep, I sneeze and have itchy eyes - But luckily the medicine is helping! And a nap after work or after dinner is said to be a good ting :)
  • Pancakes made of  1 banana and 2 eggs makes a tasty breakfast! I add also a pinch of salt and just a touch of baking powder ... I recommend!
  •  I am half way through reading Unashamed by Christine Caine - her authenticity shines through the lines ... I can't wait to pick it up again later this afternoon...
  • The days at the work has flown by so fast ... I enjoy spending time with unique children and motivated colleagues :)
  • I enjoy watching videos from the Light Room Killer tips by Scott Kelby - here's a good one on noise reduction.

... Wishing you a peaceful weekend,
Nina

The Helper


You show Your majesty
In every star that shines
And every time we breathe
Your glory, God, revealed
From distant galaxies
To here beneath our skin

You are higher than we ever could imagine
And closer than our eyes could ever see

Magnificent, You alone are holy
No one else as glorious as You
Magnificent, Jesus You are worthy
Who can shine as brightly as You do?
Magnificent
You're so magnificent

You're lighting up our lives
Illuminate our hearts
With everything You are
...

Tid bits on School Camp & Propel Women Book Club


It's Saturday afternoon ... And my eyes are resting on photos from the lovely School Camp this week.

We had a great 3 days School Camp with the 3rd -6th graders at my work. The weather was with us, we had sunny and warm days outside: By the sea, in the forest, climbing on the fallen tree trunks, admiring the things growing around us. 
Not forgetting sports and games - Baseball is the game for sunny days ... I just love it! 
I got some tips on how to cast the ball, and also this very helpful line: "Just hit the ball - Don't think!" - seemed to work well for me :)



I was back home yesterday at 4 pm - and I thought I would just close my eyes for a while, but I woke up 4 hours later! Well, I woke up fresh and had some supper and tea - and was ready to fall asleep at the normal time - I guess the fresh air and camp life does consume more energy that you expect!

:   :  :

Just a quick tip to any bookworm friends of mine: 
I joined the Propel Women Book Club a while ago, and I have just purchased the first book through the club - Christine Caine's Unashamed
Christine Caine spoke at the Colour Conference in London last month - Her witty yet straight forward nature made it an unforgettable experience to listen to her sharing. 
Especially her work with trafficked woman at the A21 is wonderful, rescuing the fate of many, not only women, but also men and children, as A21 is focusing on the trafficking taking place among refugees today.

In the Unashamed book Christine Caine tells her story and how she has coped with the shame, she has carried on her shoulders dues some of the experiences from her life (abuse among other things). 

I downloaded the Unashamed Kindle version, and will read alongside the other Book Club members - Christine Caine will have a video each Monday on the Book Clubs Facebook group, where there will be discussion etc. 
I look forward of opening the book and starting the first chapter ...



I hope you're doing well,
Wishing you a peaceful weekend,

Nina

A Little Spring Update




I am in love with this world . . . 
I have climbed its mountains, roamed its forests, 
sailed its waters, crossed its deserts, 
felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, t
he drench of its rains, the fury of its winds, 
and always have beauty and joy 
waited upon my goings and comings.  

John Burroughs

Spring weather has brought sun, rain, hail and wind to us the past few days ... 
Yes, I'm checking the weather and temperature each morning, in order to decide between a winter coat, a spring coat or a rain coat... 

Back in my childhood in Finland, I remember that April was the month when the snow was beginning to smelt, making small brooks and becks, where we would play with boats made of bark.

Our younger son has been down with influenza last week - It's great that he's gotten well and back to school - and that the rest of us seem to have skipped the virus this time.

I have been without sugar 3 weeks ... I just had to try if I could make it and how it would be!
I was surprised to experience headache the first 2 days (maybe that was a coincidence?) - and also that after 5 days, the graving for sweet things just lost it's power on me! 
I have sipped tea in the evenings - and it has been easy to skip the cakes at the work. This weekend I was to a birthday party, where I got a piece of birthday cake, which tasted fine and sweet ... So, there has been a tiny break in the sugar free period - But I will continue, and intend to keep on going sugar free still for some time.



Something nice is taking place very soon - that is, the Colour Hillsong Conference at London, starting on Thursday. As it happened, I was able to jump in as a friend to a friend swapped her place with me. We're 4 friends traveling together - we met some time ago just to an art, walk & coffee afternoon, and planning the upcoming trip.

Moreover - A dear friend of mine, whose living in UK, is able to meet with me in London ... I'm really thankful for being able to travel, and I am looking forward to this weekend!



You are never too old to
set another goal
or to dream another dream.
