The idea isn't mine, it's Katie's. These little glass smiles travel in my bag so I can drop them wherever I want. Hoping to bring a smile to someone's day. Check hers here.
Have a happy day. Make someone smile.

parabéns, Mami :)

... porque ao longo dos anos me tens ensinado (se calhar sem dar conta) de que não há situação alguma que não possa contribuir para o crescimento.
... por me teres ensinado a perguntar "Para quê?" em vez de "Porquê?".
... por me fazeres ver a forma como Deus cuida dos pormenores e dos detalhes que tantas vezes nos escapam e por me ensinares que é bom olhar para trás e constatar como as coisas se encaixam e fazem sentido.
... por "dares o litro".
amo-te muito***
p.s.: vai lá à janela e pega nos binóculos, que te estou a atirar uns beijinhos (e a tonta da Alice também)!

*** say 'cheese', bday boy! ***

Maninho... you and your camera go so well together!
Um dia a abarrotar de coisas boas para ti!
É muito bom ser tua mana.
Até logo ;)

{today's favorites are dedicated to you, S. because there are many ways to speak}

We come with beautiful secrets
We come with purposes written on our hearts,
written on our souls
We come to every new morning
With possibilities only we can hold,
that only we can hold
Redemption comes in strange places, small spaces
Calling out the best of who we are
And I want to add to the beauty
I wanna tell a better story
I want to shine with the light
That's burning up inside
It comes in small inspirations
It brings redemption to life and work
To our lives and our work
It comes in loving community
It comes in helping a soul find it's worth
This is grace, an invitation to be beautiful
This is grace, an invitation

Easter break :: part 2

We had a lovely time in a beautiful place...

... waking up to the sound of a donkey
... playing with the donkey and dwarf goats and observing deers and horses
... free from TV
... walking on the beach and feeling the calmness of the sea breeze
... looking up a lot and staring at the clouds
... playing Mancala
... trying new foods
... eating the best ice-creams we know of
... studying about bullying
... talking
