THE FOCUS OF MY HEART

Three months left in the year!  Today is the 3rd of October; we can include it, in the calculation. Wow! We might as well begin preparations for Christmas and the New Year!   If you knew your last day on earth would be December 31st,  what will you choose to do differently?   Will you choose to…

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES

I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, “Where has the time gone?”  There are only four days left in the month!  This month has been busy, hasn’t it?  There have been numerous natural disasters: such as Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria and others, and there have also been earthquakes; numerous people are…

LIVE LIFE WELL

Can you imagine that in just a few months, we may soon celebrate a new year, if the Lord allows?  It is too easy as the year progresses, to be caught living life unintentionally.  Too often, we find ourselves moving from one activity to the next; from one event to the next, trying to keep…

WHAT NOT TO DO…

Wow!  Do you know what this means?  We are nine months into the year!  Three months away from a new year, if the Lord allows.  Have the past eight months been good to you?  There must have been joyful, jubilant occasions and also times of frustrations and failures.  Throughout these times of distress, perhaps on…

AUGUST FAVORITES

BEAUTY FAVORITES   Someone once told me I liked beautiful things.  I’m not sure whether they meant it as a compliment, but I shall take it as one.  I do love beautiful things.  I am aware that people are God’s most beautiful treasure and I am also aware that beauty is in the eye of the…

WHY HOME SCHOOL?

Twelve years ago, we made the decision to home school our two girls.  That initial decision was frightening to say the least, and although I am a teacher by profession, the thought of home schooling never occurred to me.  I was to be responsible for our kids’ education, all the way through high school?  Preposterous! …

GREAT GRACE

  Did you set any spiritual, physical goals for yourself, in 2017?  I once read somewhere, that we remember life’s high points and low points.  This implies that we remember the very good things or the very bad things that happen in our lives.  Are we able to recall any of the good points? Or…

23 YEARS AND COUNTING…

On Sunday, we celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary!  Twenty three years of laughter and tears.  Twenty three years of blessings, happiness and contentment.  Marriage has been good to me and for me.  I love this man and I am confident in his love for me.  I am confident not so much in him though, but more so, in the God, in him.  I know he will always…

JULY FAVORITES

We are now almost five months closer to the end of the year.  Sooner rather later, we will look at 2017, through the lens of yester-year.  Are you aware that you will not be the same person, you were at the beginning of the year?  The truth is we are progressively becoming better or becoming worse.  We are constantly developing habits;…

MY NATURAL HAIR STAPLES

Eight years ago when I committed to actually allowing my hair to remain in its natural state, there were very little products available for my hair.  By this time, we had two girls, nine and eleven years, whose hair had never been relaxed or straightened.  My mom brought me a ‘proper’ comb, (it does not…
