"When people realize it is the living God you are presenting and not some idol that makes them feel good, they are going to turn on you, even people in your own family. There is a great irony here: proclaiming so much love, experiencing so much hate! But don’t quit. Don’t cave in. It is all well worth it in the end. It is not success you are after in such times but survival. Be survivors! Before you’ve run out of options, the Son of Man will have arrived."

It has been FOREVER since I made a new blog post :) . I particularly love this quote because it means a lot to me. Usually, we go around with this need to impress, and I don't blame myself for this because, it's society that causes this. But I am to blame for falling under the influence of it! We don't have to impress anyone but God. We constantly forget what it's like to just lay back and be who we are. Maybe we put different personality's around different people, or maybe we don't feel secure about ourselves. It's the pressure that society gives us of this urge to be wanted, to be liked. We want that attention, we crave it, and it's hard to avoid it, I know. But sometimes we have to take a step back and breath, and say " Wait, this is NOT who I am...." In the end it's us who need to be content with ourselves, we need to take care of our hearts more than our appearances.

Hello!!! So today is one yer since we have been living in Argentina! :O it is crazy how time has gone by SO FAST. After 10 years living in the United States, finally living in MY country, has been super crazy! I have grown up a lot, in a lot of ways! When we still lived in the US I always wanted to come back, just because I wanted something new, and well that is exactly what I got, well we all got!. Sometimes it feels as if I have always lived here and nothing changed. But then I see that things HAVE changed, even I have! and that's good! I guess a different life experience does change you, and it makes you see things differently! I don't even regret ever wanting to come back! because I have gained so many new experiences here! Of course there is stuff to complain about but why does that matter? I'm just still trying to learn ahha, although I have kind of adapted myself to this place, it's still feels weird! Sometimes it's like a dream. I mean think about it. Living 10 years outside the country, basically growing up somewhere else, and suddenly BOOM big change! So many new opportunities and you meet different people! I'm not complaining at all :)

Hi bloggers and visitors!!:) So I bring you this quote! I personally love it! because we ALL have a past no matter what it is, we all do. So I guess I will talk about how I was or felt before I got that "want" to know the Lord. Ok so it was not too long ago, I basically "began" at the beginning of this year. I don't know, i guess I knew that something was missing, something that I just HAD to know. So I started going to church with my grandma and aunt, we still do but not every Sunday because, well, it's not that easy. But I try to embrace the moment as much as I can. Ok so, we have a preacher that is so humble with us and so understanding and funny! He preaches so good and it MAKES you understand the word. You feel really comfortable there! Now guys, my church is not very "popular" but why does that have to matter. You don'g go to church for it's people, food..etc. You go to hear the word! What's more beautiful than that! I learned so much from going and from doing my research and I have yet SO much to learn! it's incredible! I just felt that deep want to know God.. It's going to take lots of time but, I guess it will happen at some point! No, I don't guess, I know! I guess patience is word here! ha :)

"There's no need to rush, If something is meant to be, it will happen. In the right time, with the right person, for the best reason."
"Just because something isn't happening for you right now doesn't mean that it will never happen."
"Pray not because you need something, but because you have a lot to thank God for!"
"Everyone wants to know that they are not alone."
"God gives us people to love, and things to use, not things to love and people to use."
"Hey you! You're beautiful and gorgeous in your own way. Don't let anyone make you feel ugly, because you're perfect just the way you are. Stay Strong."
"The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but felt by the heart."
"I will say YES to all good things coming my way."
"It's time to be HAPPY again!"
"Life is like a camera, just focus on what's important and capture the good times, develop from negatives and if things don't work out, just take another shot."
"When you think you're not happy with your life, always think that someone is happy simply because you exist."
You ARE somebody's reason to smile! weather it's your parents, your child's and especially God's.. You are perfectly made exactly how you are meant to be, even with all of your flaws! embrace it!.. also be the reason why someone smiles. You are able to brighten someone's day with just kind words and of course a smile!. Smile even at your hardest and toughest time. It helps, because it shows a little bit of hope in there!:)

I have yet to understand this too! Everything has it's own time, you'll be ok! It all works out for the best.. But you have to STOP and wait.. patiently... Usually things happen because there are even BETTER plans for you. Don't rush it, don't make scenarios in your head, just let it be and hope for the best.

Every day is a chance to start over. To leave your past and everything that is not worth in it and start something new. It may be hard at times but it IS possible. You are a person who is NOT perfect, nobody says to be perfect. Just be YOU and keep God in your heart. Pray to him, thank him and over all LOVE him, because nobody has such a unconditional love for you as He does. It's amazing to know that him and only him knows what our future holds. So leave your sadness, thoughts and everything in HIS hands. You will not regret it.
