I can only imagine

I was siting on the internet, wondering what I should write on my blog. Should I write about what I have been doing since I came back to Oslo? or should I just put out some pictures.
But I wanted to tell a good story, but I did not know what do write about.

Today I bough a book called “Alltid elsket” by Kristina Reftel, I bought this book after reading Ingrid`s blog, and I asked where she had gotten the story from. I have just read some of it, and it is a good book. I also saw that the stories in the book, the author has collected from the internet, so I decided to check some of the pages mention. I found many wonderful stories. On this hompage, you can read one of my favourite stories. It is about a son and his father, a father that does everyhing for his child.
Here is also a movie from YouTube of them. I also love the song, and the text is really good!
I really hope you will take your time to read the story, and to see the moive. And maybe it will inspire you as it did me;)

I can only imagine
What it will be like
When I walk By your side

I can only imagine
What my eyes will see
When your face Is before me I can only imagine

Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still
Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine

I can only imagine
When that day comes And I find myself Standing in the Son
I can only imagine
When all I will do Is forever Forever worship You
I can only imagine

I can only imagine
When all I will do Is forever, forever worship you

Happy New Year!

The calendar is now showing 2008 and a new year has begun. I am sure it will be a year where we can learn and experience much. What it brings I do not know, but I am ready;)
But this post is not going to be about this year, I will write some words about the old, about my Christmas holiday.I have spent much time with my family, both small family and larger. One of my favourite days of every year, is the day my grandma has here yearly family party, 26 of December. Then we are together around 40 uncles, aunts, cousins and children, we stay together for many hours, eating, talking and playing games, this year we played Risk.

I also spend at lot time with friends, visiting them, play games, watch movies, hang out football and much more. And at this time of year, almost everyone is at home, so you meet so many that you haven’t seen for a while.
I played in two football tournaments, one with Couzins, where we got to the quarter final, and one I played for Godøy 3 in a local tournament in the “Kommune” we ended second. So I was happy with those results.
There is also two big happenings for the youth at the church/bedehus, IUF-festen and New-year party, and it was fun to be at both.

I have really enjoyed these weeks at home, and I have hade time to do the things I wanted to do, and more. It was of course a little specially, since last year I celebrated Christmas in Uganda. New Year I celebrated in Nairobi in Kenya, now one year after there is big disturbance after the elections and many people has gotten killed or injured. Not a good ending or a star on a year, so the people living there will be in my thought and prayers.
