Very lately, I have been so busy with juggling my job with maternal and wifely duties topped with building a business that I believe that my relationship with God has not been at a place where I would want it to be. Prayer time has become rushed, taking the time to study God’s Word has become a rarity and please don’t even mention a nice quiet time with my loving Father. Our everyday lives are so boxed with too many things on our ‘to-do’ list, many errands to run, many meetings to attend, many goals to accomplish, kids to take care of, business that requires your attention to grow, career that needs you to fly, family that needs you to be an active and not a passive part of their lives and the list is inevitably endless. Now, most of these things are not in themselves bad or sinful, in fact, most if not all of the things we do or pursue to achieve are all good things.
I recently came across the photo below where someone was using a pair of trainers to perform ballet in the midst of other ballerinas using ballet pumps. I literally fell in love with this photo and just wondered who this genius could be. What really got me intrigued is the fact that someone dared to be different. This person did not allow what she didn’t have to stop her from becoming what she wants to be or do what she wants to do. Even more importantly, she didn’t allow people’s criticisms to stop her from being who she is.
A few weeks ago, I saw a TV programme about a well known holiday destination – Hawaii. If you are anything like me, this is a place that has made it to one of my ‘must visit’ state. Whenever I see a postcard or an advert or a magazine with the breathtaking beach views on them, I just marvel at how beautiful the place must be and how truly amazing it will be to live in such a place.
Night – Darkness, Day – light. Summer – sunny days, Winter – cold and freezing days.
No, I’m not about to write on words and opposites but something very important about times and seasons. Seasons exist to teach us something. They are there as a reminder that change is ever constant. Nothing will remain as it is forever. Well, except God. Every season has its own significance and what it represents. Summer will ever be known for lovely sunny weather, ice creams and longer days. However, winter is just the exact opposite except you like eating ice cream whatever the season :). Continue reading
What’s your one move going to be?
Invest in your future? Spend more time with your family? Forgive that person? Enrol for a class? Make the next meal a bit more healthy? Apply for that dream job again? Write that book? Take a holiday? Start that business? Save more?
Whatever it is as long as it is in the right direction, take that step, make that MOVE!
I’ve been gone for so long and it is definitely an understatement to say that I have missed blogging and interacting with you guys.
Life just got super busy and it was quite a challenge to keep up with blogging. Anyway, I hope to keep up with my posts now and look forward to an exciting rest of the year sharing my thoughts and words of encouragement with you plus some scrummy recipes on one side and more on natural fertility on the other.
I’ll like to leave you with this thought for now.
I remember singing this hymn as a teenager with very few ‘cares’ and perhaps not really relating to the lyrics as I do now. With so many issues of life staring at us in the face, it is very easy to complain, worry and become hopeless. However, we must remind ourselves constantly that we do have many things to be thankful for. What you have in abundance is someone’s miracle!
