Celebration Times


Today, the 20th of December, I’ve had a very nice day with a lot of family time and celebration. Like I have mentioned before, my parents are over from Norway, and they are staying with us for some days. Today Jonathan, my husband and I, also had a day visit of my sister and her family. We hadn’t seen them since our wedding, so it was very nice to meet them again. We celebrated my birthday that was yesterday and my dad’s birthday that is tomorrow. My mother made a lovely Norwegian Christmas dinner for us today, and she had also made a nice birthday cake and brought some little cakes from Norway for us. We had a lot of  fellowship together and exchanged Christmas gifts with each other too. After my sister and her family had left, I watched a very good film called “Courageous” with my husband and my parents.

Tomorrow we will continue celebrating my dad when it’s his birthday, the 21st of December.

I am blessed. God is good. :)

Good night.

A Lovely Birthday


Today I’ve had a lovely birthday, celebrated with my husband and my parents in the morning, gone to a very nice Christmas party in the church and celebrated with two lady friends in the evening.

(I just clicked on the publish button too late again, so that the date of my publish text become the wrong one, the one I didn’t want, again, but at least I know that I’m writing around midnight, and that my birthday that has just gone by, the 19th of December, is my birthday and that I’ve just written this text a bit late. I started writing just right before midnight and tried sending out the text above before midnight, but was just too late again (like last night), but the main thing is that I’m telling about my lovely birthday, and now it’s only four minutes past midnight – it’s just become later and later as I’ve written this. Now I’ll soon tell you some more…)

In the morning I got a lovely handmade birthday card from my creative and sweet husband Jonathan, and I enjoyed a long and late birthday breakfast with him and my parents where I opened many nice gifts and had fun. Later on, some time after my husband had gone to work, I enjoyed a nice lunch with my parents and my friend Grace, and then we attended a very nice Christmas party in my church The Living Word where we socialized and also watched a very nice nativity play where the children did very well in the performance, and we got to see acting, singing and dancing. I met many different people, also people I hadn’t met before, and I had a very good time.

During my day I’ve received many nice greetings and hugs, and I’ve had many nice phone calls, including family people calling me, and some of my family members even sung for me on the phone, which was very nice.

In the evening I’ve enjoyed a very nice little party with my good friends Elodie and Grace. My parents went out for a meal and were gone for most of the time when my lady friends visited me. Grace and I made some food, and Elodie joined us a bit later and helped us prepare for our celebration time. We enjoyed a very nice meal, and we really enjoyed our time together. My husband joined our party not long after he had come back from work around half past ten and after I had finished watching a film with my lady friends, and then we ate a lovely cake my very kind mother had made for me with assistance from my fabulous dad. I’ve got lovely parents who’s helped out very much this day, and also the other days they’ve been here lately.

Now in between as I’ve written this blog text I’ve had breaks and spent time with my lovely husband. Now I’m very tired and will go to bed soon. I’m sitting and writing in a sofa in our living room as my husband is relaxing and watching “Match of the day”.

I’m very blessed and have had a very lovely birthday and had a lot of good experiences and many lovely and happy moments. I’ve been smiling and laughing a lot. The day that has just gone by and was finished about half an hour ago has been a very nice one for me.

I’m blessed. Thanks to God, my God, for a lovely birthday! :) Jesus is my Saviour, my Lord and King, and my God. He has blessed me with a wonderful birthday. :) Thanks to Jesus! 😀 Juhoo! 😀


Visit from Norway


Yesterday my parents came over from Norway to visit me and my husband for some days and meet up with both us and my sister and her family, who will join us on Sunday when we’ll celebrate my and my dad’s birthday.

It’s very nice to have my parents visiting, and they’re helping out a lot in the house and is a big blessing for me and my husband.

I’m very delayed in all the things I’ve got to do before Christmas, but God is good and is with me all the time.


Good night.


Addition added right after midnight the 19th of December:

I wrote this blog text during the last minutes of the 18th of December 2015. I wanted to publish the text before midnight, so that it would be registered on the right date, but I got delayed with a few seconds, and when I finally clicked the publish button, it just turned midnight just as I clicked or right after I had clicked the button, and it said 00:00 on my computer screen, so I thought that maybe I had clicked publish just a tiny bit too late, and it turned out that I had. Anyway, now you know I wrote the text on the 18th of December, the day before my birthday, which is the 19th, and when I wrote “yesterday” I meant Thursday the 17th. Now it’s a few minutes past midnight on the 19th of December, and my husband Jonathan has just come home from work, and he kissed me and wished me a happy birthday right after the date had turned into the 19th on my computer screen. He’s very sweet and lovely. :) Now I’ll go and eat some evening food with him and then go to bed. Good night. :)

Married for 10 Weeks :)

Hi, there, and good evening,

I’m sitting in my new home, the home I now share with my husband Jonathan, finally having come around to having sat myself down ready to write a new text in my blog, after thinking about it for some weeks.

Here’s my husband.

…Hi. I’m back writing again. Jonathan, my dear husband, has just come home, right before midnight, and I’ve greeted him. It was good to see him again after he had been gone on a long shift.

Jonathan and I had yesterday been married for 10 weeks and went out on a romantic date and celebrated a little bit last night, and it was very nice.

Now here’s the situation and the reality of my life situation here and now: I have less than two minutes to tell about the period of my life that has gone by since I got married not long ago…

I don’t have enough time to write, I feel, so I’ll just say this for now: It’s been interesting and good and often challenging, but never boring, to be married to my sweet husband Jonathan these last weeks.

There it is midnight, and I’m too late in getting this ready. I wanted the text to be ready before midnight, so that it could register on Sunday the 13th of December.

Anyway, it’s late – really late – and there’s very much going on in my life, and I’m very tired, and now I need to eat some evening food with my husband and get ready for bed.

This text didn’t end up as I wanted, and it’s clear to me now that I should try to put aside at least 30 minutes, like my plan is, for my blogging sessions, but this evening I got delayed as I easily do, and I ended up not having many minutes to write before midnight in the end.

I have to go now and spend some time with my husband.

Good night, and Happy Advent time to all of you! :)
