Hide your clocks,timers and alarms!

Today I turned 19!
Life for me would be hard to describe: it can be long or short, or short and slow, or long and fast...
I thought about how crazy this moment would be, this is my very last year being a teenager (and for all those who know me you know how much I joke about becoming boring after your 20 hahaha) seriously as much as I am thankful to God for all His mercies, blessings, and abundant grace, I still wish I could find the PAUSE button somewhere and press it.
Thankfully I can understand, we are not eternal time moves on, we can one day be all that we are, and the next, everything's gone, its life! We shouldn't expect it to be an everlasting/unchanging/unmoving pond where we can just swim around and be the same old boring fish all the time. It's how its supposed to work.
So I tell you, looking throughout my life I have been able to see that God has been working everything out, since the very first second that I caught my first breath, to the moment when I reached eternal life through His grace, to the time when I shall forever be with Him. He's been there, He is here, He will be there!
So lets stop seeing life as the reason why watches, diaries, clocks, timers, newspapers and all that time telling, time stopping stuff , was made for; life was made for us let God take full control of, and to be used according to His plans, and so that they could bring glory to Him!
SO PLEASE!! hide clocks, timers, alarms and all!! Don't worry God's there and He's waiting for you to let Him take full control of your life!
Just let Him do it and enjoy life with a big smile! :)

(by the way... what I said about hiding clocks, and alarms, it was just an illustration, I dont want you late for anything tomorrow :D )

Sit back, read, have some coffee and enjoy!

Have you ever had those moments where you feel extremely happy, relaxed and thoughtful? that it even seems to be background music playing? Like maybe walking down a hill during the sunset or sitting on some fresh green grass.
Yes we all crave for those moments in life where we can just take deep breathe , thank God for life, sit back and enjoy the moment! and oh how much we enjoy those moments.
Just this morning I was thinking about this, when ,on my everyday travel to school I was looking at the sun rising and reaching every single tree top to unveil a beautiful green, brown and blue collage of trees, rocks, and sky. I was so inspired so many thoughts came to my mind and it was like the perfect time to just, sit back, watch and stop thinking! ( although a nap would have been wonderful) it was beautiful! Also like a month ago something similar happened when in our backyard the hammock was hanging on the trees and I went for a walk decided to sit and then there was a beautiful sunset taking place, (yes I had to share that on facebook because it was that of a remarkable moment).
So no matter what you consider relaxing, quiet and beautiful, just enjoy the moment and be happy, thank God for life, sit back and enjoy! You will feel extremely good afterwards, trust me I am doing it now, as I am sitting by the window drinking some good afternoon honduran coffee as I type.

So you just sit back, read, have some coffee and enjoy!
