Christmas Giveaway

Year 2016 is almost over. Looking back at how year 2016 went for me makes me stand in awe of God’s goodness. I saw His daily grace and provision for my family, His deliverance in times of our adversities and forgiveness in our failures to please Him at times. The thought of God’s undeniable myriads of boons upon my family is entirely humbling.

The question I have been asking myself is, “What can I do to thank God in return?” The answer is nothing. And yet, I believe that the least I can do is use whatever time and talent He entrusted me to bless others (I hope…).

So to celebrate God’s kindness upon my family and me, I would like to share a Christmas giveaway to you who are interested. I am sharing these free-printable-spiritual-journal-pages. My desire is that these journal pages would motivate you to journal your lessons from your walk with God and develop your “gratitude-attitude” further in year 2017.

SUGGESTIONS: 

  1. Buy a 5×7 three-ring binder.
  2. Print one page of the first five pages.
  3. Print the page that looks like this 365 times. 😉

journal-entry-page

4. The “Random Thoughts” page is optional but it’s great for writers. 🙂
5. Another great idea would be to go to a printing shop and have them assemble your bound journal. 🙂

I wish I could do more but these will be all for now. Enjoy and have a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

Sunderban: A Place Worth-Visiting in Bangladesh

Christmas is a blessing to our family. It’s a time, not only to remember the birthday of our Savior, but a time to fellowship with our family and relatives as well.

We were privileged to visit and tour around Sunderban before the end of 2015. Thank God for His protection as we traveled from Dhaka to Khulna.

I’m sharing with you some photos of our trip.

Here’s how we got there.

 


Here’s what we saw at the entrance.

A big map of the jungle at the entrance gate. Just imagine the size of this mangrove! It’s about 139, 500 ha (345, 000 acres).

Sunderban–it is said to be the largest mangrove in the world. This sign board is somewhere at the end of the jungle’s trail for the visitors.

 

 

Expect to see crocodiles on the ground:

We saw this crocodile beside a fenced pond.

You can enjoy seeing wild monkeys on a tree. No, they are not caged at all. 🙂

How many monkeys can you see? 🙂

While some animals are out in the jungle and some are kept in cages.

Most of the animals visitors enjoy seeing are alive wild animals but there is a special place where all you can see are skeletons of animals. This one is that of a dolphin.

How did you spend your Christmas holiday? Did you go and visit your relatives? While it is not required for us to go to a fabulous place during holidays, we should remember that investing time for our loved ones is essential to building a stronger family ties.

Memories with them is something that nobody can steal from us. Let’s continue enjoying building special memories with our family.
