What is your middle name? Does it carry any special meaning/significance? I'm beginning to find these prompts quite intriguing as I try to keep my writing juices flowing. I do have several drafts that need to be visited, but sometimes, writing about something completely out of the blue is beneficial for the mind. So kudos [...]
What are three objects you couldn't live without? My Bible: The word of the Lord is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path! That's all I could think about (apart from air, water, and food)
Sam’s Stories: Happy 70th Birthday
On the 30th day in December 1952, a special baby was born into this world. That baby grew up to be the most dashing man I have ever met, and I have met many. That baby became a source of joy and encouragement to the people that crossed his path. That baby became a brother, [...]
Rudolph and the Human Condition
Things are looking up for the once-rejected reindeer. He is now a public figure. In modern-day lingo, he has become a celebrity . . .
(Written last week) My sister surprised me on Thursday night all the way from Abu Dhabi. We spent the whole day together yesterday before she left for London to surprise her parents. She had booked a studio session (her birthday gift to me) for a song I had written in 2020 and were supposed to [...]
Spot the Difference
The long story starts here . . . 'You should pack your bag', Boo of life said while sorting through some papers. 'But I don't know where we're going, so you'll pack for me'. That day (October 27) was my birthday and our 10th wedding anniversary. Boo of life had planned a trip for us [...]
(A draft folder post from November 2019) C H A O S - Christ Has Absolutely Overcome Sin That just came to me after intentional thought. I guess you're wondering why. I'm jet lagged and I can't sleep, so I open up Facebook and all I see, read and gaze on is absolute chaos. I'm [...]
Musing from Exodus 13:17
I Hope for You
Do I remember how to write? To be honest, I can't tell. I'm struggling even now to string sentences together. It's been such a long time since I wrote anything and I wonder how I've survived. I found in one of my old journals something I had written a long time ago that gave me [...]
20 Years and a Legacy
It seems like no matter how hard I try to keep up with my writing on Alethea's Mind, there still come moments of silence. These moments are not bad in themselves as I spend them on other assignments, but I'm grateful that I can always come back here and feel like I never left (WP [...]
Jesu: An Ode to Jesus
Yesterday, while trying to relax after a long day, I decided to watch The Passion of The Christ. That movie has tugged on so many strings in my heart and while watching it again yesterday, I received a new perspective on the weight of what Jesus did. The idea that the gruesome treatment of Jesus [...]
All I Don’t Like About Jesus!
I was going through my draft folder where a number of articles have been left to rot, and I came across this post that dates back to the 1st of November 2017. I began to read it and couldn't stop till I got to the end and wished I had never abandoned it. At this [...]
Village people are surely out to get us . . .
As I listened to those words come out of her mouth, I became quite ashamed and worried at the same time.
At the end of the last term of Nursery, Bumblebee came home with a plant in a cup. During the term, they had planted sunflower seeds and watered them till they grew out as beautiful seedlings. I placed the cup on my famous kitchen window sill and watered it as faithfully as I could. It [...]
Quote Series: Pixels of Life
The picture of life is dotted by pixels of relationships; and no one likes blurred pictures. - Alethea's Mind His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 2 Peter 1:3
Happy Birthday, baby!
My Healing Poster
(I wrote this on my Facebook page some minutes ago. So I've moved it here, because I know it will bless someone who gets to read it here too) I've gone through a lot of mental battles in the past years running up to 2020. I encountered a number of people who made me feel [...]
TRUST AND OBEY!
It's been almost 4 years since I started writing on Alethea's Mind. I remember that day like it was yesterday; the day I posted The Resurrection. That was the start of a journey that has led me to more clarity and illumination as the Lord orchestrated it. From that moment, I began to appreciate the [...]
A New Assignment: DTWMT
At the start of the year, I got the leading from the Holy Spirit to invest time in something that draws from one of the passions God invested in me: teaching bible lessons to children. I was very excited about the prospect, but then I became quite scared as I thought about the implications and [...]
