And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: (Colossians 2:10,KJV) The ambitious standards and checklists put forth by man can often turn out to be very depressing when one fails to meet them. We end up feeling incomplete and forget our real identity in Christ.We long to feel complete with someone in this world. Complete through the union in Christ Every man is born in sin, and is depraved of any goodness in him until he seeks and secures his salvation through Christ. This union with Christ is what makes each
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and light unto my path. Psalm 119:105(KJV) One of the first verses I rote memorized as a little child was Psalm 119:105. I had no idea what it meant at that time but till today I can say this verse with my eyes closed.
3 John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. I have loved being around children all my life, and I didn’t wait to be a biological mama to show my love. It started off by helping young moms with their little ones during church gatherings or home visits as a ten-year-old, to teaching Sunday School, co-helping at VBS, and being an AWANA leader as an adult for over a decade.

Memory of scars: Ever had to deal with scars that reminded you of sad times? I have two big scars on my face, and couple on my body from my childhood. The one on my forehead is from the Chicken pox I got on my 4th birthday and had to be in a room away from everyone to prevent spreading it to others. The other scar is on the palm of my right hand when I tripped and fell onto a sharp rock during a vacation. I bled a lot and needed several stitches. Our scars they come in all sizes and shapes

Sweet Tooth : Who doesn’t have a sweet tooth? One of my favorite stores to visit is the bakery near my house. I will take a walk to that bakery even if its scorching heat, snowing ,or raining heavy outside to make sure I can grab my favorite treat.

This picture was taken when my husband and I visited Kerala, India also known as God’s Own Country. The place was filled with the nature’s aroma, serenity, and was absolutely breathtaking. The reflection of the Sky/Heaven upon the water/Earth made it look as if they were United together. This beautiful view reminded me of the Designer of the Universe who created the Heavens and the Earth. A Creator who is eternal, infinitely wise, powerful, good, and HE IS MY GOD!
