We got the good news, and this photo, in the early hours of this morning, via Whatsup. Grandpa and I just laughed and cried together. All went well, and she came a few days earlier than expected, so it was a little bit of a surprise!
As I was lying in bed afterwards, I could just count all my blessings...I was so so thankful! And then I could feel how the doom and gloom prophets start to whisper in my ear (they are all in my mind mind you!). "Shame, you are so far from Thailand, you cannot even hold her, you're only going to see her in 2 months, etc etc." And I could feel how my joy (life) started to fade away, how "poor me/self pity" (death) was starting to rise up in me!
Well, I could have excepted those feelings, or I could rise up and chase them away! Oh it is so so easy to give in to them, but there and then I chose LIFE instead of DEATH!
How did I chase them away? By thinking GOOD thoughts! Thoughts that made me feel LIFE (blessed and thankfull!) You know happiness comes from your inside...just like peace and love and joy and power. Those things does not come to you via outside circumstances.
You see "your fight is not flesh and blood" (people or sircumstances), but your own thoughts! Guard your heart (your own thoughts!). "Choosing life instead of death!" Choose thoughts that will bring you life (peace, joy, love, thankfullness) instead of death(fear, hate, anger, self-pity, condemnation). That is the only way how we can experience abundant LIFE /Heaven NOW! How we can experience peace and joy in the midst of any situation!
