You will embark on a fair sea, and at times there will be fair weather, but not always.

You will meet storms and overcome them.

You will take turns to steer your boat through fair weather and foul.

Never lose courage.

Safe harbor awaits you…… the end.

Daphne Du Maure

Indefinite Purpose

Indefinite Purpose

God has created me to do Him some definite service; He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have a mission- I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do his work. I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place while not intending it-If I do and keep his commandments.

Therefore I will trust Him whatever wherever, I am I cannot be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve him; my perplexity may serve Him; If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him; If I am He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends; He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink; hide my future from me-still He knows what He is about.

Cardinal Newman.

"Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of His great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing. O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles? O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?" Isaiah 40:26-27

The Lord is close to the broken hearted and rescues those whose spirit is crushed.
The Lord is my light and my strength and my salvation whom shall I fear?
“Things are not what they seem,”
Be blessed wherever you are in your life today! God has His hands on the situation!

Fidel meets his dad today for the first time.

Bwana alitutendea mambo makuu, tulikuwa tukifurahi Zab 26:3

Bwana alitutendea mambo makuu, tulikuwa tukifurahi Zab 126:3

The Lord has done great things for us, indeed we are glad. Ps 126:3

If the Lord opens doors that you have been waiting to be opened……… praise him.

What God Says

If the Lord has you on hold... hold on!
If the Lord has said "NO" to you... thank Him!
If the Lords is molding your heart and mind... go with His change!
If the Lord opens doors that you have asking Him to open... Praise Him!
Be blessed wherever you are in your life today! God has His hands on the situation!

Today I saw the most spectacular thing in the sky. I was on my tea break stroll at around 6.30 pm, date the 5th of March 2010. You see, I believe in wonders, I believe in signs. There was the usual at first, the white birds that fly away in a V pattern when the sun is setting, the acacia trees silhouetting amidst the setting sun. The buzzing of vehicles on the highway, some cool breeze, and green grass, all too beautiful. Then I looked up to the sky, there a lovely ray of colour, like the rainbow but patched like bits and pieces of clouds. From a distance it looked like the earths globe, as it would be viewed from space. The green and brown, representing the earth (soil and vegetation) and then the blue, representing the oceans. It is good to get in touch with nature. Once in a while, just to forget the everyday hustles. It occurred to me than when Jesus was born; the wise men noticed a brilliant star in the sky. Guys, lets not miss on the signs because we are too busy chasing money; which we all know; does not last forever.

In my son's eyes

In my son's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
He was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my son's eyes

In my son's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my son's eyes

And when he wraps his hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my son's eyes

In my son's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though he'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
he made me
For I'll be there
In my son's eyes

Borrowed from Martina Mcbride - In My Daughter's Eyes lyrics

Quotes from the 'Witch of Portobello' by Paulo Coelho

Quotes from the 'Witch of Portobello' by Paulo Coelho

I’m only happy when I think that God exists and is listening to me; but that isn’t enough to go on living, when nothing seems to make sense.

Music isn’t just something that comforts or distracts us, it goes beyond that – it’s an ideology. You can judge people by the kind of music they listen to.

When mouths close, it’s because there’s something important to be said.
‘God hid the most important things from the wise because they cannot understand what is simple.’

Matthew 11: 25: ‘I thank thee, O Father, thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes’, or from St Paul (1 Corinthians 1: 27): ‘But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.’)

We all have an unknown ability, which will probably remain unknown forever. And yet that ability can become our ally. Since it’s impossible to measure that ability or give it an economic value, it’s never taken seriously.

‘What is a teacher? I’ll tell you: it isn’t someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.’

Writing reveals the personality

Naturally, if she respected the brush that she used, she would realize that in order to learn to write she must cultivate serenity and elegance. And serenity comes from the heart.

‘Elegance isn’t a superficial thing; it’s the way mankind has found to honor life and work. That’s why, when you feel uncomfortable in that position, you mustn’t think that it’s false or artificial: it’s real and true precisely because it’s difficult.

Elegance is the correct posture if the writing is to be perfect. It’s the same with life: when all superfluous things have been discarded, we discover simplicity and concentration. The simpler and more sober the posture, the more beautiful it will be, even though, at first, it may seem uncomfortable.’

Don’t allow your wounds to turn you into a person you are not.
