Using Bamboo for your garden

One of the best natural material you can think of is bamboo.
If you have some space left in your garden, bamboo can be renewable natural ressource.
Just be aware of the fact, that bamboo can spread widely and grow very fast.
Taking out the roots might require some stronger tools as the roots are very strong.

As it is very flexible and very strong at the same time, you can use it for different applications.

1) As garden sticks

2) As mulch

3) Or to produce beautiful and useful things
This curtain hanger in a sleep-out for instance I created after finding the perfect size of bamboo.

Do not steal

You might wonder from time to time:
How do I get to know God better?
How can I get closer to Him?
One way is definitely listen to Him.

You can listen to Him by reading His words.
His words are written in the Bible.
And within the Bible you will find His rules:
the ‘ten commandments’.

One of the ten commandments is: do not steal.
Listen carefully my precious children,
never steal from somebody else’s money or property.
It also means don’t steal somebody else’s heart.
It is the worst thing you can do,
if you tell another person that you love him
even though you don’t.

Love, your Papa.

A book with 365 pages

A new year.
Another year of separation.
But a new year is also a chance.
Imagine, if this year is like a book with 365 pages
and you are the writer, make it a good book.

For the year to come I wish you all the best.
I wish you a never-ending yearning for wisdom.
I wish you a good connection to our Lord.
I wish you a life full of love.
And if miracles are not coming to you,
you should be the miracles:
be kind, give love and brighten a light in the dark.

I am sending you all of my light and all of my love.
God told me that the wind will be strong
so that my love will reach you across the sea.
Happy new year my beloved ones.
I love you and always will.

Love, your Papa.

Don’t buy firecrackers for New Year’s Eve

Firecrackers are not good.
They are not good for your and your neighbors health.
They are not good for the environment.
They are not good for your wallet.

Firecrackers produce particulate matter.
The amount of particulate matter produced by firecrackers in just one night at New Year’s Eve
is equivalent to the amount of particulate matter produced by 15 percent of all cars around the whole year.
This particulate matter is dust which is so tiny that you hardly can see it;
but it can lead to lung diseases.

Instead of wasting your money,
rather give your money to homeless people.
Even in Western countries there are so many people
suffering from the basic needs like shelter and food.
Be a good example and give your light to others in need.

Love, your Papa.

Small Distance

It is not easy to write these words.
I am here; and you are there.
No room, no time can seperate us;
’cause true Love is stronger than life.

Your small beating hearts;
your tiny hands in mine;
embraces played big parts.
All memories of our time.

Memories keep the distance small.
Tears, as signs of our connection.
Soon you’ll get strong and tall.
So put your Love into action.

Jesus loves you no matter what.
Trust in Him and put Love first.
Turn on your bright light
and make a difference to this earth.

It is not easy to write these words.
I am here; and you are there.
No room, no time can seperate us;
’cause true Love is stronger than life.

I love you and always will.
Love, your Papa.
