Birthday girl!

And yes, it was the little lady's 4th birthday today and she has had a lot of fun. I was out for a great part of the day but having been around her this evening, I can see that she has really enjoyed herself and she has also had her hair done, which looks really cool. Esther, my friend, is a real blessing indeed.

Thank You, Lord for the kids. Grant the wisdom, diligence, patience and wisdom to bring them up in Your glorious paths for life, Amen!

Rest for the body

I am feeling a bit tired this evening and just thinking to myself that my health is more important to me than making a few extra pounds. I have been running around a bit over the weekend and my body is feeling it now. Have to go to bed early to regain some energy for the morrow which is going to be another busy day.
Lord, thank You for rest, thank You for the sleep that You give to Your beloved.
And thank You for today, Amen.

A good day

It has been a good day; the first of the half-term holidays and the boys and I and Ahema went out and I bought some books and also got some Subway sandwiches for us all. Deliciously tired as one writer would say, when I got back. Yesterday I read another of Terri Gerritsen's books and was highly impressed by the diversity of the topics she writes around and about.

Tomorrow seems like a busy day and one has to keep the momentum going in being disciplined. I have made progress with my discipline challenges but I have to keep pushing myself further and and a bit harder to be able to achieve more from the teaching and the writing.
And with God's help, I will.

Thank You, Lord for today, thank You, Lord for a good day with the kids, Amen.

Spanish miracle

A miracle, today, Lord. I have got a Spanish teacher for one of the boys and it just happened after school. Lord, I believe and I speak.
Thank You for all the miracles that are to follow and thank You for the time to read. I will write in my journal as well today, Amen.

Another day

Another day gone and progress made since I did do what I had hoped to do before today dawned. Lord, thank You for the second chance and the third chance and the fourth chance and the next chance.
Thank You for today and for Your grace that abounds daily and thank You for the writing gift too, Amen.

Execution time

I have been trying to take note of areas in my life where I need to improve and one thing I have picked up is that I do not implement or execute quickly enough the things that I decide to do. Execution time is a bit slow and I have to amend that. Something to take note of and correct.
Apart from that I feel good and I am seeking the wisdom and clarity of God to do what needs doing each day.

Lord, thank You for Your grace and Your mercy in my life.
Thank You for rest and good sleep too, Amen.

I want closure!

I want and need closure in one particular area of my life and I believe I am going to get it soon. Lord, help me finish this particular course hard and strong! I put my trust in You and You will not let me be put to shame, Amen!

Sweetie sweetness

Another busy day doing necessary things.
But on a light note, two people referred to me as sweetness and sweetie as I picked up a few things from the supermarket today. Sweetie sweetness. What a magnificent appellation! I receive them.
May I be as sweet as my Saviour, Jesus Christ, always, Amen.

It has taken me all this while to realise that when a teacher gives you homework, it is in your own interest to do it and not the teacher's. Well, not literally so, but then any discipline I form yields fruit for me first of all before anyone else and I must remember that with anything. All discipline is for a later profit and is not pleasant to go through. The Bible talks about it too.
Lord, help me do my homework and carry on being disciplined. Thank You for Your mercy always, Amen.

Arise and shine, Nana

I didn't post anything yesterday but feel like writing something today. What exactly, I don't know. I am just encouraged to write daily no matter how little it is. Building up the muscles once again and then also committing to myself in a big way. I find that I am a very loyal supporter and encourager of others, which is a good thing, by God's grace; but I have to do the same for my dreams and for myself too. No one else will do it and the few people I have trusted to keep an eye on me have almost all disappointed me. So I must arise and do what needs doing, especially now that I am trying to get some discipline in my life.
Lord, I thank You for Your daily mercies always, Amen.

Thank You, Lord for today once again

I intend to go to bed early tonight to make up for last night. Still have a blocked nose and doing my best on all fronts to eat better and also to take whatever medicines I need to take. Not excelling a 100% in all things but certainly making an effort.
And I am looking for closure in a situation I have been caught up in for a lot of years now. Lord, teach me to focus on Your Word alone, Amen.
Thank You, dear Father for today, Amen!

I am congruent!

It has been a frenzied weekend and I have done very little around what I wanted to do these two days. I have done a lot of reading though, lots of Tess Gerritsen; it is like being drunk to an extent. I want to read everything she has written but the question comes to me in whispers: what are you writing yourself?

I am on the case and I believe somewhere in my heart, there has been a turnaround and I am no longer going to give excuses or just give up. I am congruent about the writing and now accept that every little daily indeed does make a difference. Sincerely and seriously. I have also learnt that the promises I make to myself and actually follow through, matter more than anything else.

Thank You, Father for deliverance from the snares of the fowler every single day. I pray for an awareness of Your Precious Spirit speaking to me all the time, Amen.

Into Your Hands I commit my spirit, soul and body, Lord, AMEN!!
