My 2016 Resolution was

IMG_9397 (1).JPG

One of my 2016’s bests was attending the first Hillsong London Service of the year. It was awesome; I confess I was not at all excited to go, but I wanted to experience the high level of organization they have, to pass it on my service at Church in Mexico. God was preparing a surprise for us (my husband, cousins and me), the founder of the entire Hillsong Church was preaching as a guest that day. His sermon was really encouraging,  He gave us this seven-point-list for our 2016 Resolution: 

  1. Dreams will come true (Psalms 21:1-2)
  2. A year of miraculous answered prayer (James 5:16)
  3. Blessings will come by His goodness  (Deuteronomy 29:1)
  4. Dominion and authority – head not tail (Psalms 21:3)
  5. Psalms 21:4 blessings should last longer than a season. May it be a LONG SEASON
  6. An overflow of His presence (Psalms 21:6)
  7. SUPER PROTECTION Of His Love (Psalms 21:11)

I can’t explain the blessing this resolution was for this year. I think I just missed two of this points though. I kept it in my phone’s notes so I could read it periodically thought the year, and refocus on my goals . God is awesome, He is powerful, He forgives my stubborn heart, He has NO LIMITS, He is in control, “He knows the depths of my heart and still loves me the same.”

The entire service was stunning, the worship team couldn’t be more powerful, the welcome team was so very professional my life was blessed since the first moment, the speakers spoke gracefully, and the message warmed my heart for the entire year. 

Hope you can use it for your life and be as blessed as I was, I will again use it this year.

Gratitude 

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that GRATITUDE is happiness doubled by wonder.”

– G.K. CHESTERTON

Conquering 

“Find me here at Your feet again, Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender” 

Touch the Sky, Hillsong 


This girls truly know how to fight— they surrender. Teaching everyone a great lesson of never giving up, they kneel before God to thank Him, and ask Him for not less than miracles. I found this the bravest of all strategies of war : to recognise how powerless we are. There’s always a winning end to their stories —not common anecdotes at all— because God’s will is done. Though it’s invisible, they have the toughest of all armors and the sharpest of all swords, their faith and their Bibles. You’ll never see them hopeless, they’ll be facing any situation with a smile. Their always prepared with the best of the attitudes. 

Here they are, in my room, keeping a promise, making their part, warming my heart.

“Not Even The King”

Money…
Some people so poor; all that they’ve got is money…
Oh, and diamonds…
Some people waste their life counting their thousands…

I don’t care what they’re offering…
How much gold they bring?
They can’t afford what we’ve got,
Not even the king…
They can’t afford what we’ve got,
Not even the king…

Oh, castles…
Some people so lonely; what good is a castle
Surrounded by people?
But ain’t got a friend that’s not on the payroll…

Oh, and I don’t care what they bring;
They can have everything…
They can’t afford what we’ve got,
Not even the king…
They can’t afford what we’ve got,
Not even the king…

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Came charging to get what we got…
They offered the crown and the offered the throne;
I already got all that I want…

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men;
They came marching through…
They offered the world just to have what we got,
But I found the world in you…
I found the world in you…

So darling, listen:
Your arms around me worth more than a kingdom…
Yeah, believe that
The trust that we feel the kings never felt that…

Yeah, this is the song we sing…
We don’t need anything…
They can’t afford this;
This is priceless…

Can’t afford what we’ve got,
Not even the king…
Can’t afford what we’ve got,
Not even the king…

 

Azul Histórico 

So I spent my anniversary at Azul Histórico. Such a beautiful place! The food is more than amazing. They have a wide variety of Mexican traditional plates and beverages.

You can taste plates from around the country. My favorites from Yucatán.

I chose “Panuchos with Cochinita Pibil”  as the first course because, I was raised in Cancún and frequently ate Yucatán’s food therefore I could give an appropriate review.  They were DELICIOUS, with the original recipe, became the best I ever tasted.


Then “Mole Manchamanteles” with duck. This mole is made of pineapple and banana. The meal had a pear and apple kind-of  salad. It was awesome too. We, obviously ate this main course with handmade tortillas made of blue and white corn.


We love “Aguas frescas” in México, at this fancy Mexican restaurant you can find exotic flavors. We had the coconut horchata. YOU HAVE TO TASTE IT.

Dessert was not as good, but was cute. I order the chocolate tamale, but I loved my husband’s apple pie more.


What I love more about this place is the way the ambiance is planned to exalt one of the greatest riches Mexican culture can share to the world, its gastronomy. Mexican food happens to be one of the most delicious, diverse, and historic in the whole world. For us Mexicans, food represents our ancestors, love for others, and a gift to which we feel proud of. I believe no other country knows how to eat as we do. You can get close to this feelings in this place.
