overcoming fears to gain a FRIEND....

It`s always been great challange for me to meet new people...I`m not too bad at communications...it`s just the fact, that new things scares me!

But being in these situations time after time, I`ve discovered that greater the fear to come up to the person...more I should do it!

Looking back...need to admit, that best friends I`ve got now...those are people to whome I was too scared [not willing] to come up to say HI...

first impression [skin colour, language, interests, IQ, past, beliefs etc.] might be wrong...so take a courage and gain new friendship!!!

It`s great to see people with various interests coming together and spending time, encouraging, serving each other..enjoying it...[who said there is no arguing?]...but however it`s so much worth it...

Discovering RIGA...

One of tasks done for school was to find samples of an art nouveau architecture. Doing that I`ve discovered few others things, which I haven`t noticed before!

ART NOUVEAU...has always been my favourite architecture style...contains great accuracy and sophistication.

So here are buildings, which grabbed my attention (not only art nouveau)...

I was shoked discovering, that there are so much more samples of this type of architecture (RigaTourism) in Riga`s old town, which ones I didn`t manage to find or identify as an art nouveau! ONE OF my favourite - on Teātra Street 9 (1903, architects Heinrich Scheel). This building is decorated with images of mythological gods - Athena and Hermes. The building is crowned by Atlas, holding on his shoulders a globe that is made of glass and zinc. The globe is lit up at night.

LOVE Thy neighbour

just an acquintance...
or maybe passerby...
How much do we show our care to others? Whether I am too practical, or not into romantic too much... I believe that care and love should be expressed in other ways...not just in beautiful words or songs (although it`s also important)...but we don`t sing serenades to every passerby, right?

As 1.Cor 13 says what is LOVE:
4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8Love never fails.

Does these things characterize our attitude towards others...or we just skip God`s commandments?

Mathew 22:36-39
Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"

Jesus replied:
'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'

Ohh, and we definately love ourselves, don`t we?

Great encouragment?

I`ve got these photos as spam from good friend of mine, with a note: "Does this encourage You to get married???"
Don`t know about others, but THIS doesn`t convince me....

For GUYS- don`t take it too personal, just take a deep breathe...[I`ll tell a secret (or some of You already has discovered that) - female does act WEIRDER than male]!!!

This is great quote! I definately need more wisdom, but less courage to change things what I shouldn`t change!

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference."

There are thousands and thousands of people, who think that there is no point for life...but there is!!!

I am not a scientist, so can`t make You a list with scientifical evidence about God`s existance;
I am not a philosopher to discuss other god possiblities;
I am just a person, which found a reason to live...and it was not in drugs, alcohol or premarital sex...it was because of someone`s death...His name is JESUS (sorry, only users have access to this video)!!!
We [people] are odd... we believe in Santa Claus [guy with gifts], UFO [flying objects, with passangers, who look greenish]..but doubt GOD- the one, who died for us, and gave us HOPE to live!!!

Am I only one who got times when something goes totally wrong (in case- when things are planned out)...

When this happens, there are two possibilities:
Satan might not like what I intend to do;
2. God is stopping from something;

This was the case when I was confused by all this happening around me... but GOD is GOD...and He does His way...

I love the QUOTE_ God's delays are not God's denials!!! [hmm, God is never late, even if we think He is]

I am fine with receiving answer "NO"
but it`s so much better to get a "YES" and + His verification...

Ohh, there is NO greater ADVISER than HIM...and when He advises , He does guide perfectly, providing everything what is needed!!!

Bits of school

I really have not managed to take any photos lately due to the lack of time/when I have some time- it`s already dark...and I am not really good at night shots...

Hmm, and this one is not mine either, I just got it from university mate...

This is just ME with a drawing /not finished yet/...

Yeah, finally can post some photos... I am not a good writer (don`t know why started to write posts, hmm, I`ll think about it)... I am not a preacher, philosopher or teacher...so I guess I should better do that, what I am good at and what I like a lot...and that`s PHOTOS!!!

So here are some:

if we are the BODY....

It`s so painful seeing christians (being terrible sinner myself) acting the way it does not glorify GOD...(want to be corrected, transformed)

I want to DIE...
for my desires...prejudicies...values...standarts...

Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Romans 6:8 "Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him."

Ephesians 4:1 "Unity in the Body of Christ"- As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received."

*Want to see WORD of GOD changing me, my family, my church, my friends, my university, my city, my country....
*I want to see different churches coming together, and in one spirit praising the Lord, focused on Jesus, instead of differences everyone got...

JESUS paid the price...it`s nothing about us... Lord, I want to see, that You have YOUR way...in me!

The words of this song:

It's crowded in worship today
As she slips in
Trying to fade into the faces
The girls' teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
Farther than they know

But if we are the Body
Why aren't His arms reaching
Why aren't His hands healing
Why aren't His words teaching
And if we are the Body
Why aren't His feet going
Why is His love not showing them there is a way
There is a way

A traveler is far away from home
He sheds his coat
And quietly sinks into the back row
The weight of their judgmental glances tells him that his chances
Are better out on the road

Jesus paid much too high a price
For us to pick and choose who should come
And we are the Body of Christ

Jesus is the way

I didn`t create this video
