As I left another day's work, I quickly snapped this photo. So beautiful, yet so tormented. A bit like every human being I've ever met. All fighting our own inner demons on some level. https://youtu.be/EI5jsa3D5xo I love this song for the hope it provides to people who (like me) once deviated from their path. I … Continue reading Prodigal
Thanks to the Scruffyvicar for this one, a good reminder of how our actions can have a ripple effect.
I used like the Star-fish story, you probably know the one? It is of a man seeing another man on beach which is covered in starfish drying out and dying in the heat of the sun. The man is throwing starfish into the sea. The other man laughs at this fellow, and says to him “there are thousands of star fish you can’t make difference to them all!” To which the guy replied by picking up another starfish and threw it into the sea saying “well, it made a difference to that one!”
It is good to be reminded that everyday acts of kindness can be life-transforming-blessing to other people, that the way we live our lives does speaks volumes and our words can hold life/hope/salvation.
I think we often don’t realize the impact that we can make on the people we meet or the surrounding we are in.

When I was a child, asking "do you promise" or saying "I promise" made you really consider and take seriously your words. It gave the person you were saying it to assurance that you would do as you said. But thinking back, it meant that a simple yes or no had less meaning when not … Continue reading The power of words.
The journey we have called life is never straight forward. I came across this post and felt the need to share it. Do you know what your calling is? By faith will you obey? I’m yet to discover mine. But I’m listening and waiting. Thanks to “The sun shineth again”.
“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.” — Hebrews 11:8 NKJV
Life, as you may already know, is full of many uncertainties. Even those that live a well organized lifestyle will agree that there have been moments when life served them with the unexpected regardless of how much planning and preparation that was invested.
Everyday we experience a different level and degree of uncertainty, but I’m sure some will agree with me that the scariest of them all (the one that keeps you up late at night) is the uncertainty about the future; about your career; about your purpose in life.
To those who have found their purpose in life and are successfully living it; I applaud you.
To those who are still faced with uncertainties…

On February 28, 2018, I logged out of Facebook. I did this for these reasons: I wanted to spend more time with my family. It's such a time waster! Things that happen on there can be emotionally exhausting. My attention span and patience was decreasing by the minute. I needed to attend to my mental … Continue reading What I learned being Facebook free.
It's a beautiful Autumn day today. No sun but lovely and warm. This is my lunch time view today. This morning I wrote down the wrong verse! So being me, I had to go and read it. It was 1 John 5:14. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the … Continue reading God hears us.
Before we had children, we built a house together. It had to be the best. The best builder. Quality finishings. Expensive floor and window treatments. We practically sold our soul to be like the people you see in the advertisements on tv. Everything was new and shiny and we had to keep it that way. … Continue reading Less is more.
