happy birthdayLife is an enormous gift

A gift to be celebrated

Today is a of one a kind  gift

To this gift I’m devoted

When I woke up

I knew God has blessed me with another year

I smiled and knelt down and then I looked up

I couldn’t say a word, then I smiled again, from ear to ear

At this very moment, short of words

To express my gratitude to the Lord of lords

I knew that  I was blessed, Blessed to be well and alive

Blessed to open my eyes this morning and arise

My heart and whole being are full of gratitude

Gratitude for Life

A beautiful life

Gratitude for love

An unconditional love

Oh yes! My heart and whole being are full of gratitude.

As I knelt down, looked up and smiled from ear to ear

From deep down my soul, I  yelled  : THANK YOU

Thank you Lord

Thank  you for another year

A prayer is alright , and THANK YOU

Is my prayer  today

As I woke up to another blissful day, 

I knelt down, looked up and say

THANK YOU!

 Today is a good day to have a good day! Happy Birthday to me! 😉

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I hope you had a blissful weekend and that this new week has found you well!

I’m in a place in my life where I have grown a bunch more in faith! I love the saying, when prayers go up, blessings come down and I thank God for all the blessings He is bestowing on my family and I.

On another hand, I’m very excited for my very first annual Sip Shop and Socialize event coming this Sunday. I plan on making this event as fun and as cool as possible… and I can’t wait! Stay tuned!  I will fill you all in… But if you live in the Minneapolis area, I would love to meet you there! Let me know if you’ll make it! 🙂 XO

Bonjour et Bon Mardi a vous!

J’espère que votre weekend a été des plus agréables et que vous avez commencé la semaine sur une bonne note!

Je vois agréablement ma foi croître ces temps-ci … Et j’aime bien la citation ” lorsque les prières montent, les bénédictions descendent” et je remercie le bon Dieu pour toutes ses merveilles a l’égard de ma famille et moi.

Parlant d’autre chose, je suis hyper contente de présenter mon tout premier événement de l’année  ce dimanche, dans le cadre de mon blog. J’espère bien que ce sera une soirée très fun et cool comme je le projette. Tout compte fait, je vous en tiendrai informés. Soyez connectés! Cependant, si vous vivez dans les agglomérations de Minneapolis, j’aimerais bien vous voir a la célébration. Dites-moi si vous y serez. 🙂 Bisous!

Ed marriage 2Hello friends!
Today is a very special day for my husband and I. We are celebrating our four-year wedding anniversary, and I can shamelessly admit that I’m very romantic at heart. Memories such as this one are just so priceless to me; and it’s not only a moment of reminiscence of the actual day hubby and I tied the knot before God and men, but also the reminiscence of the love and appreciation I have for the most amazing husband on earth!

imageWoo – hoot!!! Hypnoz Glam is celebrating 1 year anniversary this month! So this post was supposed to go live on Saturday, but I just couldn’t get to it! I was swamped with events and other planning… But today is a brand new day and  I had to make a quick stop here and share the excitement with Hypnoz Glam’s family!

On the 1st of August last year, I made my very first post public and had been  on this ride since then 🙂  Thanks to every single one of you for being part of this exciting journey. I couldn’t have done it without you; I really am grateful and as a token of my appreciation to you lovelies, I’m giving away a beautiful purse on Instagram. ( @Hypnozglam) Head over and enter for a chance to win. View Post

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

It was very sweet of you all who had reached out to see if I’m well; and by His grace, I am! What a blessing you guys are! I have taken a few days off to regroup and refresh and it did me wonders. – Thank you! 🙂 

When I first found out about a blessing jar years ago, I thought it was a neat idea, and a creative way to learn to appreciate life and count our blessings. However, I have no idea why I actually never had a blessing jar until just recently! Procrastinating? Sounds certainly like it, right?!  Nevertheless, thanks to a fellow blogger’s post, I finally have my own blessing jar and I wanted to share the idea with you. If you’ve never heard of this concept, no worries, stick around! The steps are really simple. What you need is a jar or a vase, that you will label as you wish. It could be something like : “Count Your Blessings”, “My Blessings Jar” etc… just about anything 🙂 . Once you have your jar, start writing down your blessings. Even the smallest ones and put them in the jar. You can opt to do this everyday or weekly or whatever works for you, you just want to make sure you remember your blessings and put them in the jar as the days go forth. Now, it is usually recommended to start this routine the day after Thanksgiving or at the beginning of the year; and by the end of the year or the next thanksgiving – depending on when you started… while you’re going through your notes, you’ll be amazed how many blessings have been bestowed upon you over that period of time. HOWEVER, you don’t have to wait until thanksgiving or New Year to start this! In fact, why don’t you start today and put in your jar any blessings that you can remember from yesterday or last week or last month! Life itself it’s a blessing and let’s appreciate it and count all our blessings, big or small! As simple or as plain as this may sound, you reading this today IS a blessing for me! 😉 … So, Thank you, and glory be to the Almighty!

Bon début de semaine, les amis!

Ce fut vraiment gentil à vous qui aviez cherché à savoir si je me portais bien, et par la grâce de Dieu, oui je vais bien. J’ai pris quelque jours de “congé” pour me reposer et me revigorer, et ça m’a fait du bien! – Merci! 🙂 

La première fois que j’ai découvert le concept de “blessings jar”, en traduction littéraire la jarre des bénédictions, j’ai trouvé l’idée très créative et surtout super cool comme moyen d’apprécier les bénédictions divines dans notre vie; mais sans vous mentir, je ne sais vraiment pas pourquoi je n’en ai jamais eu jusqu’à tout récemment! Procrastination? Peut-être oui! Toutefois, grâce à une collègue blogueuse qui a écrit entre-temps sur ce sujet, j’ai enfin sérieusement décidé d’en avoir une, et c´est fait! J’ai donc voulu partager ce concept avec vous! Si vous n’en aviez jamais entendu parlé, eh bien, c’est le bon moment! Tout ce dont vous avez besoin, c’est d’une jarre ou d’un vase, ou encore d’un contenant de ce genre! Vous écrirez ensuite vos bénédictions, aussi minimes qu’elles soient, sur un bout de papier que vous mettrez dans la jarre. Vous pouvez faire ceci quotidiennement ou à chaque fin de semaine… C’est à votre gré! L’essentiel est de le faire en toute honnêteté! Il est conseillé de débuter ce concept en début d’année par exemple et d’en faire la lecture en fin d’année, mais comme qui dirait, vaut mieux tard que jamais! Je vous encouragerai de commencer dès que possible, en mettant dans votre vase toutes bonnes choses qui ont comblé votre journée, votre semaine, ou même un acte divin survenu au mois dernier! La vie en elle-même n’est-elle pas une infinie bénédiction!? Apprécions-la! Ceci pourrait paraître un peu plat, mais le simple fait que tu lises ceci aujourd’hui est une bénédiction pour moi! 😉 – Alors, merci et que gloire soit rendue au Seigneur!

Have you heard of this before? Are you going to have your own blessing jar now?  As always, thank you for stopping by!
