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 [...]

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 [...]

Scribble Pad

A number of people are familiar with the 'scribble pad' analogy of my life. For a long time, I have thought myself to be some sort of scribble pad where God writes His first drafts and makes all the adjustments to particular stories He tries to tell before sending them out for mass print. There [...]

Hello Daddy . . .

The Lord's Prayer has become one of the most frequently recited prayers in my home. To round up our morning devotions, we all pray it together, and I must admit that I'm super proud of Drama Queen (now five and half) and Bumble Bee (soon to be four in a few weeks) for being able [...]

The Fog Within

It was a year ago. We walked out of the house together and stood by the car. Something wasn't right and we both could see it. The windscreen was covered in ice and I knew we wouldn't get far without cleaning it. We had already been through so much together and our exit from the [...]

Non-refundable Love

"Daddy, in my obedience, You tantalize me more than any man can afford. You remain the best Father I could never afford." Tosin This year, a lot has happened in my quaters, as much as it has with the rest of the world. I wouldn't know where to begin if I decided to tell it [...]

3, By Grace!

It's been 3 years since God and I launched this tiny space in the blogosphere. It's been 3 years since my resurrection. It's been 3 years since this seed was planted in the soil and in these 3 years, God has tendered to it and it sprouts a beautiful plant. No matter what happens in [...]

"Dandelion" Over the period of the lockdown, we've gone on regular afternoon walks. Some of our favourite things to spot are the seedheads of dandelion plants, or what you might call a blowball. I've become quite fascinated by them, especially how with a single breath they disperse their hair-like seeds. Many times we're just like [...]

It's hard, but it's okay. It's lonely, but it's okay. It's stretching, but it's okay. It's uncommon, but it's okay. It's noble and it's okay! It's rewarding and it's okay! It's life-giving and it's okay! It's shame-free and it's okay! It's always okay to stand for TRUTH! - Alethea's Mind

"Life is not a race with men but a walk with God" There was a time in my life when everyone around me seemed to be making great strides in their life's pursuits and I felt stuck. I was pressured to play catch-up, but when God gave me the quote above, my perspective changed forever. [...]

Sowing Lies

About two weeks ago, I went on an evening walk with my camera to practice and to spend some time alone to ponder. As I walked past the bridge over the River Don and continued on the sidewalk, I thought about what I might find around me that would be a great capture and tell [...]

. . . of Simplicity, Service and Love

I've been on a special journey with the Lord since that grey Monday. On this journey, many walls I have built over the years have been pulled down and layers of veils torn apart as He gently strips me down to the original state He intended when He created me. I wish I can write [...]

Songs in the Darkness

Yesterday was . . . But God! And through the darkness, He sang to me, and He still rejoices over me with singing. Today, I share my 'Songs in the Darkness', so I'll never forget His words to my heart . . . and so that you, if you find yourself in the dark, will [...]

Fruitful Scars: The anSpoken Story

"Why do bad things happen to good people?" If you've never heard this question before, then I believe you have been living on a completely different planet from the rest of us. Anytime there is an accident or disaster that causes pain in one form or the other, that question is thrown about like pebbles [...]
