Of Sunsets

11/03/2021

One of the rare moments I get to watch the sun set. I am hardly outdoors these days, what with working from home. Even less often is going to places where the setting sun meets the sea.
Just taking a moment to record this. Snapped at arguably one of the top ten sunset spots in the world.

Stalker

Imagine being alone in a foreign country.
Imagine getting a little lost.
Imagine knowing that someone is following you.
Imagine

How would you deal with this?

It happened to this young lady. Thankfully she got out safely. To deal with the trauma, this singer-songwriter did just that – write a song and sing about it. Check it out on her website. She’s going to release a video about it too. Stay tuned!

Once in a while I will do a plug.
This time I want to share about a podcast by this amazing young woman.

Bearer of a Bachelors in Mass Communication with double majors in Journalism and Cultural Studies, she is also a freelance writer and sustainable tourism consultant.

Now she has launched a podcast. Worth nipping over and having a listen. Together with her husband, they have launched Built to Last – apt for the time now.

Staying Serene

05/11/2020

Have no anxiety about anything,

but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving

let your requests be made known to God.

And the peace of God,
which passes all understanding,

will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6,7

Overcoming Anxiety

02/11/2020

Taking our mind captive … Intentionally focusing … Initially it might require discipline.
An activity I used to do, and which I periodically return to, is to make a daily list of at least 20 things to be thankful for. It really does help… Check out this message at the 37th minute on the recent Skyline Online Sunday Service.
Today’s thanks then… Freshly picked home-grown mint.

Just a sprig… a few leaves in hot water… makes a welcoming drink any time of the day.

Great way to start and end a day.
A simple post in overcoming anxiety.
Thankful!

FOCUS

Has your life changed?

Has this year gone by in a flash?

Stop. Look. Before you go.

Untangling Knots

15/10/2020

It is easy to be tied down with a lot of negativity at this time.
Thoughts can twist everywhere.
Emotions can get snagged down.
Condemnation and hopelessness sets in.
We become immobilised and unable to proceed.
But condemnation is not conviction.
Condemnation is the dastardly enemy’s trademark.
Here is a prayer I have found helpful.

Amen!

Hibernating with Herbs

09/10/2020

Part of the new normal is to have home-grown herbs! Now for some of you, this might not be a new thing. Some might even have super green fingers.

For me, however I am just glad that this batch of herbs havent died on me! Take this mint for instance. Together with a few others, it was gifted by a friend, and came with instructions on the care needed. Needless to say, I have worked to ensure they are followed!

I am reminded Colossians 2:6,7 “As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built and built up in Him, established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding with thanksgiving”

One has to be intentional in growing.
