It took me too long to reach destionation...16 hours. There was interesting situation on the way, in Amsterdam airport I had to take trains (change 3 times) to the school. Second time when I had to change, the train didnt come and loudspeaker announced something that I didnt understood, so I asked one lady and she told that train is not coming because there is no electricity in the city from where the train had supposed to come and buses are not going aswell..hmm..strange isnt it. And no options. Then this lady called her husband and he promised to come after half an hour and bring me to the next station where the trains are ok. So we went to caffeteria with this lady and had a glass of juice and chat wile waiting.
About we had anatmoy class.
There are around 10 students and more are coming.
I have been enjoying each moment of my stay here.
And the house is like a big castle...:) with big garden with all fruit trees and vegetables and grapes.
We have been doing some inside and outside -willingliy.
The weather has been quite nice - sunny and warm.
Take care all!! :)

Little boy

The man came home late again, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year-old son waiting for him at the door.
"Daddy, may I ask you a question?"
"Yeah, sure, what is it?" replied the man.
"Daddy, how much money do you make in an hour?"
"That´s none of your business! What makes you ask such a thing?" the man asked angrily.
"I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?" pleaded the boy.
"If you must know, I make 100 kr an hour."
"Oh," the little boy replied, head bowed. Looking up, he asked, "Daddy, may I borrow 50 kr, please?"
The father was furious. "If the only reason you wanted to know how much money I make is just so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you´re being so selfish. I work long, hard hours every day and don´t have time for such childish games."
The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even madder about the little boy´s questions. How dare he ask such questions in order to get some money!
After an hour or so, the man calmed down and started to think he may have been a little hard on his son. Maybe there was something the boy really needed to buy with a 50 kr. Besides, he didn´t ask for money very often.
The man went to the little boy´s room and opened the door.
"Are you asleep, son?" he asked. "No, Daddy, I´m awake," replied the son.
"I´ve been thinking. Maybe I was too hard on you earlier," said the man. "It´s been a long day, and I took my frustration out on you. Here´s that 50 kr you asked for." The little boy sat straight up, beaming. "Oh, thank you, Daddy!" he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow, he pulled out some crumpled bills. The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, then he looked up at his dad.
"Why did you want more money if you already had some?" the father grumbled.
"Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied.
"Daddy, I have 100 kr now.
Can I buy an hour of your time?"
"Godly womanhood...the very phrase sounds strange in our ears. We never hear it now. We hear about every other kind of women: beautiful women, smart women, sophisticated women, career women, talented women, divorced women. But so seldom do we hear of a godly woman - or of a godly man either, for that matter. We believe women come nearer to fulfilling their God-given function in the home than anywhere else. It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife, than to be Miss America. It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian home than it is to produce a second-rate novel filled with filth. It is a far, far better thing in the realms of morals to be old-fashioned, than to be ultra-modern. The world has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct." -Peter Marshall (former U.S. Senate Chaplain, 1940s)

Most easiest smoothie I ever made!

Cranberry and banana blend with a little water for 1 minute and enjoy this foamy heavenly taste!

Bananas are high in potassium
, an element important in the regulation of blood pressure.
Fructooligosaccharide is a prebiotic found in bananas and other foods. Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in the colon. These bacteria improve the body’s ability to absorb important nutrients.
Have also been found to help eliminate bacteria in the stomach that cause stomach ulcers, and high pectin content, a soluble fiber that assists in the lowering of cholesterol.

Cranberries are filled with more antioxidants than any other fruit and have many health benefits, including a aiding in the possible decrease in heart disease, urinary tract infections and the adhesion of dental plaque.
Cranberries are used to treat cold and flu symptoms as well as for rheumatism and as a fever reducer.

A girl went to her friends house and she ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone.
She wasn't afraid because it was a small community and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the bike trail Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger.
When she reached the alley, which was a shortcut to her house, she decided to take it.
However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her.
She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection.
Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her.
When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty
minutes after she had been there.
Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep.
Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station.
She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story.
The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him.
She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before.
When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed.
The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her.
She asked if they would ask the man one question.
Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.
When the policeman asked him, he answered, 'Because she wasn't alone.
She had two tall men walking on either side of her.
Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're not alone...

PS: God is always there in your heart and loves you no matter what. Let's STAND UP FOR HIM... He is worthy...

'If you deny me in front of your friends, I shall deny you in front of my Father'

I am only one, but still I am one

"I am only one,
but still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
but still I can do something;
and because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something I can do."
~Edward Everett Hale
