Yariel's FIRST Birthday!

It was so nice to see this cutie again!
I can't believe a year has already gone by so fast!  


This Thanksgiving Day 2016

We had a blessed one this year. The leaves finally dropped completely and we were able to find a landscaping contractor that would work on Thanksgiving day. Claudia cooked an amazing turkey, roast chicken and mashed potatoes, and I threw down with some rice and beans.  

I had Papi in heart and mind throughout the day as we spent the whole day cooking and couldn't pay him a visit. 
Hopefully during the week we'll get down to see him.  I'm just glad he's back home from the hospital.  I really want to start working on picking up his spirits although it's extra difficult to do this without being able to get him out of his cave. 

Let us give thanks to God for all the good things He has given us.  Our health, our family, His grace upon us, etc.  

We pray for all those who can't be with their loved ones on this day for many reasons and those who have recently lost loved ones and now have a void and broken hearts, etc.  My heart goes out to them.  In the family,  one of which is the loss of Eduardo in Puerto Rico who passed away last Friday. 

Despite the post election conflict and strife going on in our nation today, let's pray that God rebukes those evil elements that have no path to peace in their hearts but that those who do will out voice them for the sake of unity and true love of our country.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

A new day God has given me! A new life; one that pleases Him - for Him, by Him, and to glorify Him - which is my complete joy! 

I was blessed reading Psalm 8 this morning. It spoke to me about the power, dignity and HOHNOR God has bestowed upon man over all of His creation. 

“O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. 

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 

Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!”
Psalms 8:1-9 KJV
