Do Not Be Afraid,

Do not be afraid. My thoughts for today! I woke up to that promise. Black ink against white background, showing words I needed to hear, one that will still my racing fearful heart. But that was not all, I needed that reminder all through my day and it kept trickling….another devotional talked about it…one friend posted it on facebook…and another …

THE MAN CALLED PRISONER (V.2)

I’ve heard people say, ‘Count your blessings…name them one by one’ and I believe that there’s so much power in ‘Counting blessings’.

Joy,

‘Stay joyful!’, that’s what I told myself as I got to the bus stop that Tuesday, imagining how I’ll survive with books in one hand, cake on the other, and a large crowd of people waiting for the same bus. ‘Stay joyful no matter what’, I repeated It didn’t feel joyful though sitting close to two women fighting in the bus…One …

Arm in Arm,

What if we walked arm in arm, Through the sunlit footpath, The sun brightening your face, But not as bright as your smile,   What if we took that turn, The one to fragrance alley, Your senses alive again, Living in flowers I cloth,   What if we kept walking, That walk to hungers room, And I remind you again, ‘The …
