Man’s not . . .

2 years ago, it was my couch. Today, I’m in bed, but not because I don’t feel like doing what I have to do – I’m down with a cold. Still, I’m glad that God sends messages to us to keep our spirits alive even when our bodies are highly unable to assist.

So, for those of us with 2020 visions, this is me cheering you on. WE CAN DO IT!!!

Alethea's Mind

Right now, I’m supposed to be upstairs in my corner, doing what I’m supposed to be doing at this time; but I’m not. I’m here, sitting on the couch . . .

You know when you just don’t have it in you ‘to do’. That’s how I feel at this moment. These very frequent episodes when the spirit is willing, but the flesh is highly unable to assist, so it lies limp, like a dead cat.

The struggle is real.

So here I am: the dead cat . . . or maybe not . . .

I sense opportunity.

I feel a little drive.

This is my chance.

It’s now or never.

And if you’re like me, dead cat’s sibling, sitting on that couch or lying in that bed wasting away when you should me doing something usefully good, so not to waste any more of our time…

Of Rainbows and Identity

It was Bumble-Bee's birthday on Tuesday. My amazing drummer boy turned 3. In the run-up to his birthday, every time he was asked what he wanted, he would say "Rainbow cake". At a point, my friends began to wonder what his fascination was for rainbows. "I want 'rainbow' drumsticks" "I want 'rainbow' shoe" "I want [...]

When Anger Finds the Dark

Be angry but do not sin. Do not let the sun go down on your anger. Ephesians 4:26 Sunset. When the sun goes down, all that remains is darkness. Anger. Every time there is anger, sin lurks in the corner, looking for the opportunity to take over. Darkness. Every work of sin is born in [...]

Last Card . . . Check-Up!

Hello family. A happy new year to you all, and I hope your year has gotten up to a good start. I've been absent for a while and all for good reasons: to get some clarity on what the Lord would have us do in this year. A lot has been brought to the table [...]

Questioning Reality

This post is 2 years old today. I’,m happy to share it again so it can sing into the decade. I hope someone reads this and decides to do more to protect our children.

Happy New Year Folks!

Or is it?

Why do we place demarcations between days to create weeks, months and years? I think it’s offensive. Offensive to Day. I don’t believe it asked to be separated. Did anyone ever ask Day what it really wants? If it wants to be made up of two days and two nights, or three days and a night? We just went ahead and stereotyped, and labelled, and classified. We aren’t sure if Day prefers to call itself Night and vice versa. But here we are, forcing the label of ‘day‘ on Day and ‘night‘ on Night, without first considering how they feel about it. Day must seriously be offended that almost everyone gets up once it breaks and runs around the world like headless chickens disturbing its peaceful existence. Why don’t we do the same to Night? I’m pretty…

2020, The Year of the Word – Calendar

Many years ago, my dad, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, began designing calendars that carried messages given to him by the Lord for each coming year. These calendars are printed and given out to anyone who cares to have one, and since we can't print and share them with the whole world, we [...]

Sow Good Seeds

When I was a son with my father, tender, the only one in the sight of my mother, he taught me and said to me, “Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments and live. Get wisdom; get insight; do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth. [...]
