"what does BLESS mean in your life?"Franziska said:

*listening to Birds sing in the morning
*finding a wonderful verse in the Bible that fits just to my situation.
*seeing Babies smilling

*feeling Loved by family, friends and especially when they show me with care & attention, like a hug when I feel a little sad, or a flower on my windowsill from my grandma's garden, or my favorite cake baked by a person that I love.
*Looking out of the window and seeing blue sky or rainy sky ( a rainy sky only on days I know I don't have to go out.)
*Listening to a wonderful wise person speak.
*seeing Elephants in the zoo
*weddings, because they are courtships with a happy Ending!
*eating Erdbeeren (German word for strawberry) with cream

* Singing love songs, Singing songs of faith
*Seeing people Smile at each other
*being able to Swim in the Sea
*being able to Smile even when everything seems to go wrong.
*Swinging up into the Sky on a Swing
*receiving a thousand Super things from god

.... "Amen to that Franziska and congratulation again! ...beautiful words to remind all of us that the simplest thing in life can be the best sometimes... enjoy the blessings we have been given, whether it is in the form of a beautiful bird singing, warm smiles, a simple outdoor swing in the park... even gorgeous-gorgeous sky during sunrise or sunset... yet, how many of us take the time to slow down long enough to just soak up these wonderful blessings? I believe that the best things in life are free! Unfortunately, most of us are just too busy... rushing around...or even blogging(heehee!) that we miss a lot of the wonderful people and things in the world around us. We've somehow lost the ability to take the time to "smell the roses" so to speak... and count our blessingsss..."

:) My favorite part is the one about the quote in the Bible. Every time I got to the Bible, I randomly flip to a page and point, and the quote is always relevant to whatever my problem or situation is.

Congrats franziska!
