Be Still



There was a time when I hated going on Facebook. The many update from friends, colleagues and family would drive me crazy. Updates on new jobs, marriages, birth of children and so forth, I would log out of Facebook feeling like a failure after comparing my progress in life with others. At that time, for sure I seemed to be stuck in a moment and a lot of things were frustrating me. Then something happened, I can’t really say what but something happened because I over time stopped beating myself up so much. I remember one of my former colleagues who I used to vent with regarding our job, getting a new wonderful job and although I was surprised, I found myself genuinely happy for her and inspired that if God could do it for her He could also do it for her. 

Gradually, I have been learning to be still and trust God that when the time is right things will come together. My Pastor preached on Psalm 23 a few months ago and it was like I had never really understood the meaning of that Psalm before until that moment. Simply put Jesus is my shepherd and he will and is leading me to green pastures but I need to trust Him like the way sheep trust their shepherd. So nowadays my attitude is if it doesn’t happen now when I want it to its okay, maybe it isn’t the best time, when the time is right it will happen. So far so good, some things that I have been wanting and praying for have been unexpectedly coming to pass. So yes, I will be still (at least try), my Shepherd will lead me to that green pasture. It may take time but my time will come and I will eventually get there.  After all, life is full of surprises, a seemingly ordinary life can in an instant turn into a fairy tale.

Laughter Therapy

It has bee crazy crazy hectic at work (today is supposed to be a national holiday - Heritage Day but I went to work, that is how busy it has been) so I thought it would be nice to share some funny things I have come across of late. Laughing is good for the soul.

This is one scenario I would not want to imagine ... at all.
Got ya!
Lol!

Flawless



This is my current Idée Fixe. I simply cannot get  enough of this song.  God's grace is something which never ceases to amaze me. I am so undeserving and yet there He is telling me its not about what I have done or should do but that the cross is enough and that His grace is a gift. This song puts its across so well. I feel so humbled and honored to belong to God and to experience His unconditional love.

Unexpected

Although I am not very good at keeping my blog up to date L I read and follow a lot of blogs. I enjoy reading anything and everything – things happening in people’s lives, travel, food, beauty and hair tips. So it was a pleasant surprise the sometime ago when I saw the author of one of the blogs I follow (Aisha from My Fro and I) on the bus on my way to work. I have never thought that I would actually meet one of the authors of the blogs I read and follow thinking, honestly I have never thought of our worlds colliding in real life. The first time I saw her I was too shy to approach and talk to her, but fortunately for me I saw her again weeks later and this time I was courageous enough to approach her and talk to her. It was really nice talking to her and she was so friendly and as beautiful (and more) as in the pictures on her blog. Reading her blog has revolutionized the way I treat my natural hair. 

In the past I would never be caught rocking my natural hair, I always had it plaited. I simply had no idea how to tame it and style it. Now thanks to her and a host of other natural hair bloggers I have become brave and I actually enjoy and embrace my natural hair.  I now enjoy experimenting with my hair and trying different styles. I am sure glad that winter is over and summer is here. I can continue my love affair with my hair.  Thank you all natural hair bloggers out there you make me brave in managing my hair. Uuuuummm I wonder who I am going to meet next?

The Good Changes

Perhaps I am a person of contradictions but here is the thing – I like doing new things but I am not a huge fan of change. I like planning ...
