Daisy loved to dance. More than anything else she wanted to be a famous ballet dancer. Every night she dreamed of performing in front of a real audience. But today was Daisy’s first lesson at her new dancing school. As she walked into the huge hall, she felt a little worried.
This is her current favorite book. She even sleeps with it, and I have been reading the same book to her repeatedly for the past few days. She woke up this morning saying “mommy can you read”. She loves it when I replace Daisy’s name to hers. I enjoy the reading moment with my little helper at home.
The news about his death is widely spread on the net. I’m sure many people are saddened by his sudden death.
Have you ever watch or observe someone who is all talk and no action? There are people who spend more time arrogantly talk about what they are going to do than actually doing it. They usually stuck where they start and never get anywhere.
A dream comes through much activity,
And a fool’s voice is known by his many words.
We don’t get our dream fulfill when more time is spent talking about them than praying and working toward achieving them (that speak for me too).

I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day I had so much to accomplish that I didn’t have time to pray.Problems just tumbled about me, and heavier came each task, “why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered. He answered, “You didn’t ask.”
I wanted to see joy and beauty, but the day toiled on gray and bleak; I wondered why God didn’t show me. He said, “But you didn’t seek.”
I tried to come into God’s presence; I used all my keys at the lock, God gently and lovingly chided,” My child, you didn’t knock,”
I woke up early this morning and paused before entering the day; I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray
Happy Beautiful Monday! Another Monday to start a fresh week.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
This verse is my encouragement today and I hope it does for you too. The problems of life can be a burden on us physically, emotionally and spiritually. Yet, as we learn to trust in the Father’s care, we can have the peace that not only surpasses all understanding but also overcomes our anxiety. We can be at rest for we are in God’s hands.

When I keep my minds on God,
God will keep my minds at peace.
After my first attempt baking shortbread cookies, my children have been asking me to make chocolate chip cookies. I am kind of enjoy making cookies, though I don’t have the baking interest yet but for my children sake, I challenge myself to do the thing that I’m not passionate about.
So here are the chocolate chip cookies I bake last Sunday. I use self raising chocolate flour and use margarine instead of butter. Here’s the original recipe.
How’s your week been? Last 2 weeks were school holidays so a little relax for me. With my 6 years old son and 3 years old daughter at home, the house is full with their noises, laugh and fight. And there are house work, laundry, dishes, my 5 months baby and all the chores, which make me, feel exhausted. I am a very high “D” at home, so can you imagine a dominant stay at home mother? If you don’t know what D is, check out this Personality D.I.S.C overy
Anyway, it’s Beautiful Monday (BM) today, and I start with a fresh week. Sometimes I overlooked the inconvenience of stay at home with the kids. Rather than complaining I want to be thankful for the time I spent with them and for all the chores at home. I want to use this time to put my heart and mind in a state of joy as a stay at home mother. So these weeks I choose patience and kindness.
