“This is the time to discover just how brave you are”

The Moonlight school is inspired by the true story of Cora Wilson first female superintentant of School in Rowan County Kentucky.

Cora Wilson fought against illiteracy and come up with a new concept: evening school for adult people who could not read or write.
Illiteracy was a common thing at that time and it was also an hindrance to progress. The lack of knowledge made the Mountains People vulnerable to Valley view Lumber company who took advantage of them.

It’s in this context that Lucy Wilson haunted by her past arrives in Rowan county to help her aunt. There she will find a purpose and become a confident woman.

This is a wonderful story in which you can see how someone can have a true impact in this world. It is very inspiring, the world needs more people like Cora Wilson.
It shows the importance of justice and equality.
I also realized what a privilege it is to be educated.

Every sunrise and sunset is a word from the All Mighty, a reminder that he is with us…”

BLOOM 

BLOOM

This word has been in my heart for a few years now. I really want to see things come to life and grow. I believe that every one has a purpose, sometimes it can be hard to know who you really are. I realised in my life that one of the mistake that I have made was to see me through others eyes instead of God eyes.
When you realise that God love you and accept you as you are you understand that you matter, you have a purpose, you have a voice, you can heal, you can bloom.

I want to believe that every promised is not empty of power God,
I want to see that your word can truly transform me God,
I want to see your eyes full of kindness turn to me and heal every wound.

God I can not bear this silence from You,
Help me to see your hand in my life

I know you are calling me for more

Allow me to bloom
Allow me to heal
Allow me to hear your voice
To find out the truth
And be free

The Bethany tales by Brian E. Canter

51499524. sy475

“the deepest wounds can be inflicted in a moment, but true healing always takes time.”

The Bethany Tale is a biblical fiction based on the story of Mary, Martha,
Lazarus and Simon living in a village called Bethany.
There lives are transformed when they meet Jesus. He brings healing, restoration and forgiveness.
Their beliefs are challenged, a lot of questions are raised until each one of them come to the realization that Jesus is the Messiah, the one who forgive sins and who loved them despite their mistakes.

The Author decided to portrayed Mary of Bethany sister of Lazarus and Mary of Magdala as the same person.
I was a little surprised at the beginning I have never thought that they could be the same person but in the end I think that what matter is the message of Jesus, his forgiveness, the redemption of our sins and his love to all of us.

I really like this book and his message.

“God can make a way, even when it seems impossible. We’re not trapped by our circumstances. We’re really just in a prison of guilt and shame. And God can set us free from that.”

Here are some of the Bible passages behind the story: Luke 10: 38-42; John 8:2-11; John 11:1-46; Luke 17-11-19

“The path to wholeness often involves a great deal of pain. But remember the leaven. You don’t know how it makes the dough rise. It just does. Well, let me tell you the secret. The Father makes it work—just like he can take a lifeless seed and cause it to grow into a towering tree. In much the same way, the Father can take a seed of forgiveness, plant it in the heart, nurture it with faith, and cause a whole new person to be born. All you have to do is ask.

Don’t lose heart

Ephesians 3:20 - God bless us - Quote in pics

Sometimes it’s hard to find the words to express how you feel. This year has been quite challenging, not really what most of us expected.

Life is a battle and we all have a destiny. We were made to create, to love, to be loved and to be God’s vessels. God wants to have a relationship with us but the devil comes to steal what God has in store for you. That is why is very important to know the word of God and build an intimacy with Him. That’s way you will avoid the enemy’s traps.

Don’t lose heart.

(I am also talking to myself, I know how hard it can be).

May God bless you, and I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Jesus-Christ is the greatest present this world could ever offer you.

Before the crown is about the love story between the Queen Elizabeth and the
Prince Philip. Elizabeth has always loved Philip she believed He was the one for her, the man who could see beyond her title and accept her like she was.
She is quiet but strong and determined. She takes her future role as Queen seriously.
I found their love story very inspiring. Their love is not extravagant, they are two people who committed to each other to spend their lives together with honesty.

The story is well written and interesting. I learnt a lot about the Queen Elizabeth.
