COssy time

At this time of year, the air outside feels colder. & most likely I'm not the only one who struggles to awake in the mornings when it looks like darkest night outside. Neither am I the only one who thinks that time flies to fast because of exams and schoolwork and other stuff that needs to be done. In times like this I sense its even more important to appreciate those small moments. small moments that bring a touch of new strength & joy. Cause life gets so much better when we're able to be grateful for the smallest things. :-)

a Cup of encouragment

- Princess time for me is as simple as this -

I sit down in my white soft couch, with a mocha coffee in my hands. I take a look out my window & I'm met by a beautiful view to the sea & those majestic mountains in the horizon. I breath. & then I smile. I thank God for lovin me when I'm not worth it. I pray that no matter how I feel He will help me be a difference in a dark & hopeless world.

Cause as a Princess - You & I sometimes need to go to our Father & King to remember why He put that crown on our head.

& the answer is always the same.

" it's because You're worth it "

last weekend I got to spend some time with my Sister & her husband & we had quiet some time together. The story I will share includes one of those experiences you either wanna forget completely....Or remember as funny ;)

Brad, my sisters husband, is american & He knew the way to Kjerag, one of Norway's most famous tourist attractions. you might have seen a picture of it - its a big rock captured in between two hill sides, 1110 m up, above sea level. actually He googled a map that we used to get there. the one problem was. google was wrong. that never happens ! well I though that never happened ! Google was wrong, & I guess I was too..

after a 1, 5 hour drive & a ferry trip we passed a sign saying " travel at your on own risk ". OK...

of course we continued driving up this road, so narrow only the tiniest car could fit, luckily our car did. & then we ended up at the very top of a little mountain.. there were a field, a tractor, a river with some fish in it, some cows & countless sheep .. sheep that enjoyed goin before our car to lead the way. .. not exactly what we foresaw.

Actually we didn't even get close to the real Kjerag, BUT we did find another mountain that we climbed & there, at the top, with a beautiful view to majestic mountains, we sat down & ate lunch, like real norwegian countrymen do :-) .

every day is different - you can only make it better

We face different challenges now & then because we carry dreams, hopes & prayers in our hearts.

We try and achieve what our heart tells us. We always want to succeed & make the best out of life. but... we are humans. we don't always get what we want. we don't always manage our goals or achieve what we intended. as humans we fail.

we find that life isn't always that easy.

but what we SO often forget when we're found in times of trouble, is that we don't have to struggle alone. we should run as fast as possible to The Savior, Jesus Christ. In His presence we're embraced with an unending love. This love has power to renew, to change, & give us everything that we're in need of. This love is all that matters.

" For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His tabernacle and set me high upon a rock. " psalm 27, 5

Stavanger Updates -

A glimpse of my every day life ..

So.. I'm back to the southwest coast in Norway, this time Stavanger. A beautiful & charming town it is, except that it is raining - pretty much ALL the time. High Fashion this fall is therefore pink boots & raincoat ... ;) Thats the NICE outfit. Otherwise I pretty much walk around in sweaty dance clothes that matches a messy hair. Every friday is a high light because I can finally dress up and look a lil bit nicer than I do during classes.

During a pretty busy week I also get some company from my beautiful roomie & best friend, Debbie. We've already shared endless talks, laugh bursts, secrets.. and at the top of it, we've become addicted to the TV series desperate housewives that we watch occasionally. :p

I love having my friends over for dinner or coffeee, and take a well deserved break, & put some quality moments into a busy, stressed, frustrated bad OR good & calm day. Friends help us get back on track & they often remind us whats important in life.. Friends help us be be crazy, be kind, friends make us smile and they are a true blessing that is worth treasure - & that I'm so grateful to have.

coming up ! School break & a trip to mi familia - iiiiiiiih <3

a Girrrls weekend

Nothin' is more refreshing as a weekend spent with my closest girl friends. I'm amazed by these beautiful moments that we get to experience together, these moments that give us new strength & passion to keep on goin no matter how we feel & no matter our circumstances. Once again we remember who we are & who we are supposed to be.
