The sun, moon and stars carry on on their designated paths…
Looking at them reminds me how short our lives are, how small our problems and how small we are.
So tiny and still, we are precious to someone.
Like the moon, so tiny when looking from the here, but still so huge in reality…
The nights are not entirely dark anymore. The sun sets after 10pm and the sky is most amazing between isha and fajr. Such a peaceful time… Ramadan starts soon, so we begin to shift our routine to later, the kids are looking forward to stay up late ☺
Summer has begun, and although this spring has been difficult, I am grateful for all the good moments…
And another sunset… the cycle of day and night, winter and summer, dark and light, life and death on this earth keep me amazed. I have been searching for my ancestors a while now, at the moment I can track my forefathers to the 16th century, and this chain of generations is somehow beyond my grasp. How life is so fragile and still everything goes exactly the way god has planned it to be… This thought makes me so grateful for an opportunity to be here…
Many of us tend to rush forward in life. From one meeting to another, from work to gym, from gym to shopping… mostly with heads down and eyes on the smartphone. Like this, we will miss many of those awesome moments in life. Like this amazing sky one hour before. Alhamdulillah I hope to be always grateful and amazed by every day on this incredible earth.
A short moment for yourself gives energy for soul and body… You do not need consume everything and all to be truly happy.
Oh what a beautiful sight this morning. I saw blue sky! What an amazing sight, which I haven’t seen for weeks. It was few grades below 0 Celsius, the ground was frozen and the clouds were missing.
Well, on a day like this, you have no other choice then to get out of the house, as fast as you can. Directly after duhr (midday-prayer) we got in the car and drove to a beautiful place called Riihivuori. Here a short collection of pictures on this great late november day in middle Finland.
The view from up there was just fantastic, and it was the only right thing to do. With the sunlight-cache now filled up, we are prepared for the next grey days. We even found a woodpecker in the forest, hacking a tree.
I love those moments in the nature…
A little image from the first days of september. Sunny days become more rare and rare, so when it shines, you have to go outside and enjoy the last glimpses. Sooner or later I will miss the sun desperately.
This haven and the sun was taken on these last summer days, or the first days of autumn. I just love the sun how warm it looks.
The boat is arriving at the haven, there are still so many boats out there. Some people leave their ship until the first ice come. I never have been a boat owner, so I cannot comment if this is a dumb thing to do, but I wonder what if you wait too long and you cannot get the boat out anymore.. Could be getting expensive.
Well, without a boat, I do not have to worry about it 🙂
People are complaining that sunsets are a cliché, something overdone, thousand times seen.
For me, every moment alive is a blessing from Allah, and none of these moments are in vain, so is every sunset a new end for a lived day, which will never be lived again. And every end for a day means inshaa Allah, after the dark, a new dawn, a new day full of endless possibilities.
Alhamdulillah, today was really a beautiful day, not really warm but so quiet. Most of the finns are out of town today, so I enjoyed the silence.
Yesterday, the night before midsommer, most people lit a huge bonfire to celebrate midsommer, we had no bonfire, but the skies had their bonfire of their own. A huge rainbow to east …
and the most beautiful colour to the north.
