I love this blessed twin island state my Father have placed me here for a temporal stay to do His eternal work! It’s beautiful, rich in diversity, multiculturalism, history, good food, excitment and so much more. It’s one of the only countries in the entire world that is named after God’s Triune Deity. *La Trinity/Trinidad: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.*
No matter the grimance and darkness hours this nation faces we always survive and is fortunate to overcome and move forward stronger than ever only by the grace of Jesus. I’ve seen God saved this country over and over and over from massive earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, plagues and so much more that I saw wiped out neighboring isles not too far from us and even countries abroad to literally nothing and we only got just a tip of the iceberg from those disasters and I know it was only because of God’s hands of grace and mercy over this isle!
And because of that I think we took Him for granted and still haven’t turned from our wicked ways as a people and as a nation called by God. So through this virus we are currently fighting against I believe we will truly turn to Him this time. In the midst of it we are still able to see the light at the end of the tunnel for the grand restoration, rebuilding and spiritual revival of my homeland. I love it and I won’t trade living anywhere else in the world for it! I’m blessed to be both a citizen of heaven and a citizen of Trinidad & Tobago.
Felìz Cumpleãnos Trinitario y Tobago! Dios bendiga ese paìs siempres! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ *Happy birthday Trinidad and Tobago! God bless this country always! 😀

Hallo, Wie gehts? *Hello, How are you?* German 🙂 This trip was a blessing and a lesson as well alongside my bestie, her sister Denise, a family friend Awong and myself! We had originally planned to go Toco but God changed our plans and led us to go Maracas instead.
Toco Beach. *photo belongs to http://www.tripadvisor.com* via google search.
To be honest I was disappointed because of the change and during the week God was speaking to us and showing us where He wanted us to go instead but we weren’t seeing it until the day came and we learnt why He wanted us to go Maracas! I learnt that to go where God wants you to go and NOT where you want to go. Due to us repenting for our stubbornness and obedience to His guide, He blessed us with another trip surprisingly! Thank you Lord! You are great!
Maracas is known as one of the most picturesque bays on the islands due to several tourists that visited de island commentary, that’s located on the North Coast Peninsula of Trinidad. It’s one of the most popular beaches here and although before I had disagreed on it not being the most beautiful bay, I take that back!

Seeing it in real away from pictures on the internet is B R E A T H E T A K I N G ❤ My goodness! I never knew Trinidad was so scenic! What a blessed country God placed me to live in! It’s truly a gem friends. It. Truly. Is.
The road to the bay run through tall, hemispheric, mountains that overlooks the village of Maracas and also other bays that are private and separated from each other by mountains & valleys. Before you reach the beach location, there is a magnificent lookout that Dee and myself took pictures of on our way home…or so we thought! 😉
The first roll of pics were taken by Dee! Enjoy! 😀
The tide was really high that day.
If you look carefully, you’ll see a birdie high up in this palm tree!
Took a pic of me taking a pic of the sea ahaha!!! 😛
The bay was very hospitable to us by offering us fresh fruits with a pinch of salt & sand! 😉
This bridge on the beach takes you over the river that intersects/runs into the sea to a mini play park for the kiddies and vendors alongside the other end of the bay that sells sweet tasty, local delicacies and other treats! 🙂 It was worth crossing lol!
Wherever you lead I’ll follow you Lord…. ❤
Each mountain is shaped as a different animal that separate the bays from the lookout. The first one, a turtle, second a dolphin and the third a crocodile! Do you see them? We did!
I would NEVER forget how strong the Lord’s presence, love & peace was felt here when I stared otherworldly at His majestic creations! I saw His greatness before my eyes and had to burst out in praises to the King ❤ God. Is. REAL!!!!
Second roll of images captured by me….
Tammy & Diana ❤
Uncle Sam’s bark and shark is de best! No lie allyuh! *I’m not lying you’ll/it’s the truth* Translation. You have to try it whenever you visit! It was so good! We Trini’s LOVE to have this as well as our international visitor’s whenever visiting Maracas! 😀
The glory of the LORD overshadows me wherever I go for His glory ❤
After capturing images, wailing constantly in ohs and ahs, discussing after lunch about the Lord and His Word, walking the large bay from beginning to end and from the end back to the beginning, trying to assist a guy with his phone camera, interrupting a wedding *somewhat* lol, pondering whether to bathe or not and well it was a lot of pondering we did and our feet decided to happily enjoyed the sea bathe instead for the body, so yeah 😥 lol we were sad about our departure buttttt little did we know that we were heading into another adventure, when we lately noticed that our route to home did not. Look. Familiar….!

When we questioned Awong and he told us Mount St. Benedict, we couldn’t be more excited for we always wanted to visit there! God is so good!
Mount St. Benedict is located in the Northwestern vicinity of St. Augustine, Tunapuna on top of a very high, wining hill that overlooks the East/Southern side of Trinidad. It’s rich in history and also in beauty if you’d asked me 😉 it holds a church, school and other facilities. To know more about Mount St. Benedict you can click on this link:- http://www.mountstbenedictabbey.org
The drive was soothing and the views were stunning on our way there. We didn’t get much time to venture around/ take photo’s because service was going on and they were just about to close, but the 10-15 minutes was worth the panoramic view, tranquility & mediating on God’s Word that I saw operating in life before me…
I’ll forever be chasing after you….. I’ll be chasing after you my Lord… ❤
Overall it was a blessed & enjoyable trip! We ended it with thanks to Almighty && purchasing de best tasting street food on de Avenue at night doubles! It was so good as per usual!
*via google search Trinidad food*
I never had it in the night before and it didn’t do my tummy no harm! Ha! 😉 I can’t wait to see where God will lead us to venture to next! I know it’s going to be amazing! Thank you for reading & coming along with us via photo’s lol! God bless and continue to…..

More gracious gems have joined the family. I haven’t named since these two already have names. If I do that’ll be double naming them right? 😉 haha! God bless and much love! Enjoy! ❤
Rose Bush *I was so happy when I saw the color her first flower bloomed in! Ah my gash! In my fav color! Pink! ❤ *
Sweet Peppers *my nephew planted these and they are doing well thus far* 🙂
Offsprings from Rose *just a lil bonus added* 😀
“Why look ye for the living amongst the dead?” *the one’s to the left are dead. Rose bears flowers daily and they only last the day and die during the night. A perfect example of how short our days on earth are and why we must cherish it and consume the time He has given us wisely to proceed with His will* ❤
Rosa bloomed very late. But it was totally worth the wait! ❤ the red dot’s remained me of His holy blood that was shed for us, making us beautiful from the inside out. ❤ God’s creation reflects His character in a lot of known and unknown ways that one can only see through the eyes of the Spirit and intimacy with Him.
This extra plant grow out from Rosa’s root, which is actually her child. I haven’t named her as yet though! Where did that time go??!!! I didn’t even get chance to see her graduate 😦 lol!!
Blessed Night all! 😀 The night when I captured these photos I was happy to meet a new hopping friend! I didn’t had a name for him then but I do now and it’s Benny the grasshopper! 😀 I really love the images I got with him! Do enjoy! Blessings! ❤
Here is featured the moon and a star that was very close to it in late December of 2019 and beautiful lighted ships & rigs I love admiring by the window at night. ❤
Spotted these beautiful little flowers on the upper bank to the back of our home! They are so cute! Some were purple and the others were white mixed with lavender purple. ❤
Jumping Jacks we call these hopping insects here!
Some type of flat back beetles had hatched that wonderful morning on the water tank. 😀 The beauty of new life!
A lovely albino type spider sleeping in it’s home! 😀 I enjoyed capturing it a lot and were very pleased with the images.
Spotted this fallen beau when I was making my way towards the staircase. ❤
Broken Heart shaped cloud.
I was so blessed and contented when my neighbor decided to bless me with these lovely flower plants! These images I captured of them are not recent for they have grown tremendously and even have their own babies now! 😥 ! My gosh! Where have my plants gone?!!! They grow up TOO fast. Any who’s moving away from that fact, lol allow me to bless you with my Father’s grandeur! ❤
This is Rose! She sends out these cute pink and yellow centered flowers that dries up after a day. She loves sleeping early and running in the tails of the breeze. She’s very quiet like myself as well and a type of ants we call bac-chack on de islands is attracted to her. They never came around her though and that’s good lol 😉
That piece of wood you see to the back of her stem, my mom placed there to hold her up for she was weak and fragile to stand in the ground of the soil. God taught me a lesson where this is concerned. In this spiritual journey at times we get very weary and we reach to that place where we are unable to stand strong in the Lord and the power of His might, which is eternal. We need the brace *the prayer support, encouragement from others in the body* to stand and fight the good fight of faith again. We can’t fight all the fights on our own. That’s why we need each other in one way or another. Just as Rose needed that wood to stand so that she can grow and has grown beautifully. ❤
This is Rosa! Her sister! She is a big eater and do not like to sleep at all whatsoever! She loves waving her hands a lot in the wind and births a beautiful yellow and maroon centered flower, that hasn’t come out as yet, but in due time with her Creator. I can’t wait to see it!
God taught me through this plant. Patience increase as you wait for my reward. Though I haven’t seen her flower yet but I know that I will see it blossom one day. And that’s faith exercised in great measure from the Treasure within me. Jesus ❤ gosh I love Him so much! Just because you don’t see that house, car, daughter, son, wife, husband, passport, visa, ministry, school or whatever you are waiting on the Lord for, doesn’t mean that it’s never going to come. It already has. You just have to allow His patience to increase over you as you wait in Him for His reward to come forth like a flower in your life!
Blessings, peace and grace! 🙂
Ah, on that night I was on my way to go use the washroom when my Father allowed me to look up on the doorway of the shower when I saw this beau! I was like, “Yes! This is my opportunity to capture a flying creature that won’t fly away from me!”
I ran quickly out of the bathroom straight through my sister’s bedroom then into the other bedroom where my mom & I reside asking her permission for the phone as she permitted me to as I gladly ran back through the rooms into the bathroom and quietly in awe captured these images of some type of moth with glossy type wings that somewhat shun in the night or either from the light’s refraction. 🙂
😀 I don’t have a name for her, what do you guys want to call her? Leave it in the comments! God bless and have a lovely day, night or morning! Byes! ❤
