Fireflight - For Those Who Wait

" The pressure makes us stronger. The struggle makes us hunger. The hard lessons make the difference. And the difference makes it worth it. "

This lyric speaks of how we often struggle to know love. Something within us will always strive after love if we haven't taken the choice of following Jesus & been met by His grace. I know very well what it means to feel hopeless - this song encourage us to put hope in something you're not able to see, a love greater & bigger than everything you'll ever know.. By my own experience I wanna say, stay in this hope. The longing you carry in heart, will remind you that you were made for something bigger than yourself.

My SWEET Valentine

THIS girl turns 21 today !

I figured it was best to give her some extra credit today - especially because growing older is her biggest fear! That is after she is safe from cats & secure that her closet is filled with chocolate. But babe - growing older we cant control. Growing UP is your choice though, but we both know you already know that...

We've been put up with a lot of things together & we share a lot of stories, of course. Some say we act like an old couple, that is because we go so well together :p . A lot of people call us "fjortis" ! well, not so much now though - but still some do. But we call each other sisters, babes, best friends & now roomies.

But now I wanna put this girl into the light.

this girl who neeeeds to laugh an hour a day, at LEAST.

the swedish part of her that reveals through really bad jokes... or her yearly trip to the amusement park, Liseberg !

The girl who always looks good!

& is genuinely interested in people, & love to talk for hours and hours. :)

& would never manage a day without her coffee..

She is a truly beautiful Princess inside - out. & this is her day! Happy Birthday, Gratulerer med dagen, Grattis med Födelsedagen !

<3 Du skal firas !!!

The thing about friendship is.... quiet a lot!

One year ago when I was in New York City, I asked God to show me more and more what a good friend should be like, and what a strong and healthy friendship means. Ever since then, this has become a daily adventure, as well as an everyday lesson to me.

What makes the biggest impression on me is that I would never be 'me' without those I consider as my friends today. The value that each of these friendships have, enrich my life and makes it better in every way. Now that I think about the memories that has gone by the last year, containing challenges, blessings and a bunch of joy, I sense a great gratefulness for those people that has affected my life so deeply that I wouldn't be the same without them.

You know when you laugh so much it becomes a memory you will carry with you forever ? I guess I have more of those memories now than I thought was possible...

But I also am reminded of the times shared in silence - when you sit for hours without saying or doing anything particular - and still you couldn't have a better time. And those times someone chooses to meet you with honesty and truth and it feels sharp and hurtful, but you realize it still means the world to you. and the hours of talking.. when you just need to pour your heart out and someone takes the time to listen to your words and respond to it .

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no-one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. " eccl 4, 9-12

I guess this is Gods way of telling us we're better together? Because I've learned that friendship is such a valuable treasure - Now I'm so excited to continue share life with my amazing friends - & I'm also excited about building new relationships. After all - it may as well change change my life :)

Be true to your heart

& face what is broken apart.

Feel the hurt & the pain -

but let God pour down His healing rain.

Let go of your own desires,

so God may have room to lit His passionate fires.

Come closer to The King,

as you open your mouth, He himself will make you sing.

Dont hesitate, give him all,

his hand upholds you if you do fall.

This step of trust that you do,

will result in all His blessings too.

Gods love will embrace all that you are.

& His whisper will make sure He's close and not far.

For the sake of music

“ Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul. ”

& creds to an incredibly good singer and songwriter .

I go into the dance studios every day & the mirror reflects the way I look.

Sometimes though we forget to look into our hearts. we forget that what we find within - has greater value than what we actually lay our eyes upon. At times its difficult to face ourselves - our inner self & our outer self, because what we find doesn't really delight us. We have bad days - yes we all have 'em. But treasured in us isn't the amount of bad days, bad experiences or our bad history - its the way we face this & choose to respond to it that really forms us to become who we are, or who we wanna be. Every human being are different from each other, we have different personality. But we share a common attribute, which is the ability of making choices, and thats where we're given the opportunity to overcome whatever life strikes us with. We are responsible for making the best out of life - whether that means to go for a walk every day, smile more, pray more or stop blaming life for being unfair - because it is. It is indeed. My responsibility is to make sure I look into my heart - your responsibility is to look into your heart. Because whether we like it or not, its really our hearts that reflects our whole being.

Than we might like to take another look into the mirror & maybe we see ourselves in a totally differnt light this time ;)
