Just saying thank you

Discovered another author today called Paula Gosling. An American who has lived in England for a very long time now; enjoyed her book very much. It is interesting how a lot of crimes have a source and are not just random acts. Jealousy, ambition, blackmail, the love of money, etc, etc are all powerful enough motives to drive people over the edge. I am learning.

Also very grateful that I did some writing and and the housework that is a constant in my life.
Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

Short and sweet

I just finished reading the latest book by Sarah Paretsky today. It was very good and have been inspired anew. Discipline is what it is all about and I keep striving to break through on that front.
It is well.
Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

Another day in my world

It has been an interesting day; had great plans to do lots of stuff but had to change course completely. It is all well and one takes a day at a time. I did scribble a few lines in school so I am grateful for that and I must keep writing even if it is a few lines daily. Things will come together for sure in Jesus' Mighty Name if I keep on doing what I need to be doing at the right time.
God is so good to His own.
Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

Thank You, Lord.

It is amazing how merciful God is. Make a serious error of judgement of character and His grace and mercy abound to keep one from making mistakes that are impossible to recover from.
Keep procrastinating and He gives one an opportunity to make good the following day. What an amazing God I serve, what an awesome Father I have.
Thank You, Lord for Your grace and Your mercy, Amen.

My antidote to frustration

The Internet has been restored at home for which I am truly thankful. Came home early today after school and had lots of things to do and managed to finish some of them but I feel strangely dissatisfied. I don't know whether it is because the kids have irritated me in some way. I think so; and I feel this way because I thought I would have finished the housework by now. Yes, I did finish it but the kids messed it up again, hence the mild annoyance and irritation. What to do?

I will just leave what needs doing for tonight and engage in a more profitable pursuit like reading and writing in my journal. That should make up for the blackness of my mood.
It is well and God is good indeed. Thank You, Father for today, Amen.

A writing accomplishment

I have lost Internet access at home so this is a quick scribble from a different location. I have managed to send my weekly column for a newspaper back home. Hope I am more prepared and ready next week.
I can gladly say I have done some writing to make me feel proud today. Yes!!!
Thank You, Father for today, Amen.

Quick post

It has been quite warm today, thankfully. The Net is down at home so I am at the library checking my email. Alas, nothing interesting; seems like friends are very, very busy these days. Ah well, life continues and one keeps thinking about the writing. A day at a time. Actually wrote a few lines in my journal yesterday and will do so again today. Something to look forward to.

Rushing off now to watch Son no. 3 in a footie tournament. My interesting life as a mother continues and I mean that sincerely with no sarcasm intended at all.
Thank You, Father for today, Amen.

Grace abounds

Thank You, Lord for today and thank You for another day. I did some walking again yesterday and it was good. Had a Subway sandwich as well and it was so delicious. Borrowed some Maths books from the library so I can help a friend and hope to tackle the subject before Saturday.

Tried to write something yesterday but stopped at a point because I didn't feel like it was flowing but I have to get over that and just write by faith. I must not allow myself to be led by feelings again.

I am making progress with my regrouping indeed. Thank You Lord for that, Amen.

Feeling good

I feel much better today by God's grace and I am feeling stronger in body and more positive in mind. I must not let myself run down like this ever again. Getting back to normal is such hard work.
I hope the writing will also begin to flow for me once more in Jesus' Name, Amen.
Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

Simply today....

The beginning of a new week. Hoping this week brings many blessings and also is one where I start feeling more active and fit as I start a walking regime. Lord in Your mercy, hear my prayer.
We had a lunch at church today and the food was good. It is nice to eat food one has not cooked. Lord, be glorified in my life, Amen.

Back to base

It has been a long, long time since I wrote over here or anywhere else. Breakthrough needed with the writing.
Ghana was very good and I really had a lovely time and would have loved to reside there permanently. Miracles happen, I say; I am praying about that move very much.
On the home front, I came back to find that the boys had really matured and were getting on better. Miracles do happen indeed.
Lord, in Your Name, I can scale a wall. Thank You for today, Amen.
