We had a fire last week in the house and we have had to learn to cook and live from day to day and it has not been bad at all apart from having to throw food out which I always feel bad about. Very unfortunate.

The fire started due to an electric fault and it is a lesson in getting things fixed when they need to be fixed and not leaving them until the problem gets worse. We are having to sort out the insurance and it is one whole week since the fire devoured things in the kitchen and nothing seems to be happening or rather things are taking a bit of time.

The strange thing is that when these banks and institutions want money from you, the onslaught is relentless and yet when you need their help, the wheels suddenly get bogged down in mud. We give thanks in all things.

Another lesson I have learnt is why it is so important to be an independent of and self-sufficient individual in whatever kind of business you find yourself in. That way you are reliant on less and less people and you can sort things out with your own resources. One cannot be completely independent of every institution because of the dynamics of today's world, but one can be queen of her own enterprise and rule in her own kingdom and indeed that is what Jesus calls us to be: kings and queens with him.

I do not know exactly how things are going to pan out with my dreams but I pray that my dream to go and have my own enterprise in Ghana will materialize soon and to that end I keep dreaming and praying.

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord indeed, Amen.
