What makes you happy?
Day 10: Thank You Lord for having the best plans for our lives.
We may never understand Your reasons and ways, but I do believe that every heartache, hardship, problem and suffering that we have and will have will always brings us to the best place that we should be. And I believe that You will get us through it.
As we face the challenges that awaits us each day, Lord give us the strength to endure everything, give us the wisdom to understand and decide properly. And give us the serenity to accept the things that we cannot change.
You are the pilot of our lives. Without You, we are nothing.
Day 9: Thank you Lord. Just thank you for everything. Words cannot fathom how good You are to me. Every single breath is a blessing from You. Thank You for this life. Thank You for the chance to be crazy, weird, silly and stupid. Because even though life is short, every second is a gift from you. I am so grateful.
Day 8: Lord thank you for the chance to take a break.
It’s the weekend, my chance to replenish all the strength that i gave for my job. It’s draining, but still I am grateful that I have a job. Other’s are dying to have one.
Thank You Lord for my job. Even though sometimes I am beginning to dislike it, but who am I to complain, I am so blessed.
About the pic, I am just imagining myself taking a break in that beautiful place. :) Someday. Soon. God-willing.
Inside the Bento Box: Exploring the Art of Charaben (#キャラ弁)
To see more photos of beautifully decorated bentos, browse the #キャラ弁 hashtag.
For many Japanese people, having home cooked bentos, or boxed meals, for lunch is a part of everyday life. Often parents will wake up early in the morning to prepare and pack the lunches into individual bento boxes for the whole family before they go to school or work. In recent years, the daily endeavor to prepare a balanced and appetizing meal has evolved into an artistic talent. These have taken the form of “charabens" (キャラ弁), short for "character bentos."
Charabens are bentos that are arranged to resemble famous characters, animals or other cute icons using the ingredients of the meal. Charaben making originally started as a way to encourage fussy kids to eat everything in the bento, including vegetables. Nowadays, with more cooking ideas and specialized tools at hand, this elaborate style of bento creation has become a hobby for many mothers. The bentos are increasingly sophisticated with rice balls shaped into rabbits, eggs baked to form stars and seaweed carved out into kids’ favorite manga characters. Skilled charaben are also beginning to gain recognition for their craft as many mothers have taken to writing blogs and cookbooks about their work, producing new cooking utensils or even entering charaben cooking contests.
Day 7: Thank you Lord for this medicine. And thank You ‘cause it’s free.
Second day of this paralyzing migraine. I took the day off ‘cause I can barely keep my eyes open , and I also can’t stand to be in a well-lighted room. I had three tablets of this since yesterday just to relieve the pain. I felt like my brain was swollen and a little movement causes an indescribable feeling that makes me so dizzy. Well, this is still way better than my one-week migraine attack last 2010.
Lord, thank you for making me well. :)
Thank you Lord for hardships. It makes me strong.
