A recent sneaky behavior from an acquaintance has left me on a rather sad note. It was a group gathering, and I had left my toddlers under someone’s watch while I turned my back to look for something. After I returned, I noticed this person suddenly trying to hide their phone from me. Since I was standing right besides, I noticed it was my children’s picture that was taken behind my back. Thoughts raced through my mind as to why would this person wanted to hide them from me, or why not share the pictures with me since they are
Stench to scent I remember going to the fish market as a little girl along with my parents in one of my prettiest dress. It was located near the Arabian Sea and the stench of fishes were unbearable after a minute of standing in the market. A pretty attire had no place to be in an area filled with dead stinky fishes. I still recall the smell coming from the fisherwomen selling the fishes, and it was completely different from the scent of Versace or Burberry. Today, I wonder how is it that my Lord was not ashamed to walk besides
Sense of smell play a distinguished role in awakening all our senses whether they be the smell of a freshly baked pie, to French fries, or even a rotten fried fish. It could either stench up the place ,or spread a pleasant scent throughout our home.
I loved sneaking up behind my uncle and imitating his walk when I was a little girl. Both his hands along with his shoulders would swing and rotate in slow motion as his body moved all the way to the right and then all the way to the left. It was as if he was breaking into a slow dance and I giggled every time he turned around wondering what I am trying to do behind him. Last week, I wrote a very special prayer for every parent <- Click here I pray you will most certainly read it aloud
I am not a singer, even though I love to sing. Yet, I decided to sing in front of a huge crowd few weeks ago for a special occasion . A quick prayer was essential while standing in front of the crowd knowing fully well that I have never sang in front of a crowd for more than a decade. I had picked a meaningful hymn with a chorus and 3 stanzas, but I just couldn’t hit the right notes at the right time. Somehow, I finished the song and ran towards my chair with my head covered hoping to never
Watch out for Negative Thoughts : An incident which occurred a while ago has left me on a sad note. It has been many weeks since the incident but those negative thoughts haven’t left my mind. I wish I could turn back on time, and plan that day differently. I wonder if I should have restrained my thoughts? Should I have not stood up for my loved one? Should I still be feeling so low? Maybe now everyone dislikes me and is gossiping behind my back. Then, this morning those negative thoughts flooded back again. I grabbed the Word of God
What happens when not vigilant : Recently, I watched a documentary on a leopard and the hunting tactics it used against a family of baboons. The leopard is known to be the fastest animal, nocturnal, and hunts solitary in the night. The baboons are always together in a group with their young ones, have poor eyesight in the dark and prefer to rest on top of the tree. Whenever the leopard tried to come near the baboons during the daytime, the latter would chase after the leopard together. So, after the baboons retired for the night on top of the tree
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. One doesn’t have to be a biological MOM to be called a MAMA if our mothering involves lots of prayers, encouragements, discipleship,
