Jeffrey Archer's company

I was hoping to cook today but only managed one pot of soup and that is because I was just so tired after doing the shopping with the kids. Not my choice to shop today but circumstances surrounding that activity led to today's outing.

Well, to rest my weary body, I have been reading a novel by acclamined author Jeffrey Archer called Paths of Glory. I am enjoying it very much, it has a hint of history and some romance which I always like and I hope to be able to write as well as he does one fine day. It has been a relaxing read so far; however, I am feeling quite drained in body now and should go and have a quick wash and then jump into my bed. Very grateful for that and maybe tomorrow I shall be able to go for a walk. Lord in Your mercy, hear my prayer for a financial breakthrough and miracles galore.

Thank You, Jesus, Amen.

The changing seasons

Today has been a pensive day for me and one where I was reminded of the fact that the summer will soon be over. I wasn't exactly freezing but I was feeling quite chilled and couldn't get home early enough to jump into a warm bath.

The tides are changing and hopefully it means the seasons are changing for me financially. That would mean so much to me given the current challenges I face. A day at a time, a step at a time and I believe the Lord will make those open doors manifest soon.

Thank You, Lord for today and for the gift of friendship.
Thank You, Lord.

A frustrating day

Sometimes I wish one day could be like another and I wish today had been just like yesterday was. A perfect day in my estimation because I made progress on an idea that came to me.

Today has been a bit frustrating because I couldn't get to do what I wanted to do but what to do? I need to salvage this evening and will probably just retire early to read a book and regroup for tomorrow.

A day at a time, a step at a time and I am making progress daily.

I bless you, Lord

It has been a good day today; making progress on other things apart from the writing and sorted out two appointments. I am deliciously tired and looking forward to some good sleep. Hoping to go for a walk tomorrow morning to get my body ticking even better.
Thank You for today, Father. Thank You, Lord, Amen.

Long time

It has been a long time since I visited my blog. Last week was just so busy but I have to learn to spend my time on the important instead of the things that seem so urgent and are just mundane stuff.
Had a good day yesterday and achieved the goal for the day which always makes one feel great. Getting a friend to help another friend and thus easing the burden off a young woman on the cusp of making a life-changing decision.
Thank You, Father for great friends who are an example to me.
And thank You for my blog.

Thank You for good friends, Lord.

I am feeling very sated tonight, like a cat that has had a full bowl of cream; and this is simply because I have had a great day today, thanks to the help of two friends. Friendships form such a big part of my life and I cherish the ones I have so much.

 A good friend is the most precious of things on this earth and I am so blessed to have some who are really and truly wonderful. 

Thank You, Father that I am indeed blessed and highly favoured. Thank You for a wonderful day today, Lord, Amen.

Still questioning

This evening I am feeling a bit harassed and thinking how trying a day it has been today. I have been tried in my emotions and also in my mind and I am having to ask myself some very tough questions. So far, no answers to some of the questions; meaning I have to dig a bit deeper and also pray for clarity. For some of them, the answers have come and imply that I must do a little bit more work. Thinking about all that needs work on would be too overwhelming.

Improving something day by day will help me gain a better perspective on some of the issues I am dealing with. This is sounding all so abstract but this is because I cannot disclose some of the things I am dealing with over here since there are other people involved in these situations.
I can work on myself though and that is what keeps me going and helps me regain my focus. A day at a time and a step at a time.

Lord, in Your mercy, hear my prayer, Amen.

A good day of reflection

It has been a good day today; one of great reflection and contemplation about the way ahead. No resounding answers per se but a reminder to take myself seriously indeed and also stretch myself a little bit more. I have made progress and must keep on with it despite the apparent lack of any harvest.

I went out today and once again it was good to be out again without the entropy of young kids around to distract and demand. Found quite a number of good books, jotted down a few things and enjoyed my own company. 

Thank You, Lord for the opportunity to go out on my own. Lord, thank You that I matter to You very much, Amen.

Still pressing on

It has been an interesting day today; I sent out a piece for the Friday column and got only one response from a writing friend. Well, I thought it was good so that is what matters, really, or to put it better, I am not looking for endorsement per se. I hope someone was blessed reading it.

I have been in a bit of a pensive mood thinking about the year and what improvements I need to make and how to make better use of my time and not pine too much for Sikakrom. Today I have been missing it a lot especially after visiting Facebook. Well, what can the girl do but to keep on keeping on?

Feeling tired now and must retire and hopefully wake up refreshed and raring to go. Lord, in Your mercy, hear my prayer. Thank You for another day today, Amen.

The finish line

I have finished off some work of writing for a friend and I feel very good about it since it has been hanging around my neck for a long while now. It also means I can have the freedom to pursue other things until I need to look over the pieces again. Lord, thank You for this newfound focus and energy. Without You, I am nothing indeed and with You, all things are possible.
Thank You for the joy of finished work today, Amen.
Thank You, Father for Your presence and Your Promise to me.

School, Sikakrom and sleep.

I went to teach today and it was an all-male cast today of differing ages. Very noisy towards the end of the lesson and I was beginning to wilt. Very challenging to control children in this part of the world and not pleasant at all for adults to deal with but one has to be firm with them and stick to your own standards. One has to keep praying for them.

Thank You, Father for that open door for us to exit and get back to Sikakrom where one will have the support to teach the kids virtuous ways and those of our fathers before us. Indeed Sikakrom does have a lot to offer as those of us who want to go back keep discussing.

And thank You, Father for hot water and a warm bed to sleep in.  Tomorrow morning I will regroup and get the program going again with the writing. Thank You, Father for Your grace and Your mercy daily, Amen.

Still trusting for that open door

The day started off well and I got some work done that had been pending for a while so very pleased on that front. This evening though has been quite challenging with the kids, especially with the toddler.I am looking for that way of escape very much to do with being patient with all of them. Sikakrom beckons daily, more than ever. If for nothing at all, there is the free entertainment of playing outside until they are very tired  and at no cost.

Thank You, Father for the release and thank You for the open doors and Thank You for the breakthroughs, in the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Deliciously tired

It has been quite a productive day; helped a friend sort out something he had asked me about. Feeling deliciously tired now and have to get to bed. I am thinking of all the things I need to do and beginning to feel overwhelmed. A sure sign that I need my bed at this point. 

On another note completely, it is quite a relief to realise that leaving the kids at home is not a big deal for them at all. They just get on with it and do not seem to be sad or bereft when I get back. It is good for this Mama to also get some fresh air and breathing space away from all the noise and shouting.

And I met an old friend who told me she has started some business in Sikakrom. Why sit we here until we perish? Thank You for release, Father. Thank You for the funding as well needed to do all that needs doing in the Name of Jesus. Lord, be lifted up in my life. 

Thank You, Father for progress in Nanakrom.
