A Happy New Year to myself. To a new phase of growth in my life.
Thank You, Lord. Amen

Holiday snippet

We went to France yesterday and it was very nice. The boys enjoyed it very much too; they got to buy a few things and we had lunch at trusty, reliable McDonalds. I am really looking forward to the day of financial independence; I shall have to think of what I will do to celebrate. The day of making decisions of what to do, what to buy and where to eat! Oh, what freedom of choice. Anyway, must not deviate.

I bought myself some French exercise books that I just love so much and adore writing in; didn't get any pens because I was thinking of the bargains I had just bought and I did practise frugality by leaving a bit of the money which I think will get spent today though.

The money I spent on Brian Tracy's book is paying off; next year is my year, Wanda said. I have experienced a bit of an attitude shift and though it hasn't been easy at all, I have been persevering and will continue to do so. To see different results I have to change some of the ways in which I spend my time and my money indeed.

All that investment I have made in books must surely be put to use and I promise myself I will do exactly that.
Go for your dreams and goals,Nana. God is on your side and you have the victory in your Lord Jesus Christ.

Grit your teeth, Nana

I had been feeling a little blue this evening but I am feeling much better now; a bit of prayer and also reading something by TD Jakes. Determination comes from deep within and no one else can make it happen for you but yourself. I know that, but sometimes, something happens and it cements your decision even more.

Restoration and recreation and recapturing of the independent me.

2008, here I come with God's grace.

Finally we have managed to get a holiday for the whole family and though it is not to foreign climes, at least we will not be at home and I am truly grateful for that. I am going to do my best to make the most of it and pray a lot for the coming year and all the dreams that are to be achieved.
Canterbury, here we come!

Touching base

Today I made it to the library though I resisted it for a long time; why, I really have no answers to that but I know that a lot of writers go through a similar thing. What I do know is that when I am tired, I have to stop forcing myself to sit up; I achieve very little and then I start getting discouraged. It is important to rest the body and the soul as well.

I wrote with a pencil today, as I did the last time and it was great. The simple reason for choosing a pencil was because frozen fingers could somehow not grasp a pen properly and the writing looked very untidy as a result of that.

Anyway, it is good to touch base and I keep reminding myself that the year is not over yet; the Lord is the God of miracles and wonders and He demonstrates His awesome power among the nations.
God is good indeed! Hallelujah to His Holy and Precious Name!

Today has been good

This week I haven't been able to go to the library much because of the other things to do around the boys but in my mind, I am very aware of the fact that I cannot afford to lapse in concentration. If I do, it will mean I have to re-train myself to get into a routine and that is not always the most pleasant of things to do.

This evening I took the boys out to the library for an event and it was good; Ahema was in a playful mood. I never cease to get amazed at how clever she is. She really is a little trooper. The good thing that came out of the trip for me was that one of the librarians introduced me to the device that people carry around hanging on nylon strings around their necks: USBs or USPs? I must find out the correct name. It was really helpful of her and this sorts out the solution of writing on the PC when I go to the library. One can keep adding onto it and I don't need to be at home to use the PC. Very handy and timely advice.

Lord, I do believe very much in this law of attraction; it really is operational and I need to practise it some more.
And today a friend blessed me with his words about my writing. Does he really think so? Awesome thoughts and I receive them in the mighty Name of Jesus!

Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

Seeking the Lord

It has been an interesting week and as we enter into the last month of the year, I am expecting miracles right down to the 31st. This year has to end on a high note! I now have some form of routine in the mornings with the writing for which I thank God. I haven't done any writing today though because I had to teach and then take one of the boys out and babysit for a friend who has just had a baby boy. Her second. Thank God for safe delivery and for His grace.

Yes, this year has to end on a high note; it has been a trying year in a lot of ways but we have triumphed only by God's grace. I have to pursue the things of God even more in the coming year. We are in the days of so much happening and so much information that one will need to be led in every little and big decision so that one does not end up in muck. Proverbs 3:5 and 6 should be my meditation passages for the rest of the year.

A day at a time, seeking Jesus and seeking to do the Lord's will. That is what I should be focussing on and the rest will have no choice but to follow.

Thank You, Father for all Your grace and Your mercy, Amen.
