God, what game are you playing at? #blog #blogging

Did you ever stop to think that there was a supernatural, higher being who had knowledge, wisdom, control and final mandate over the events in the world? I appreciate that in some instances people may think that He is weak, unable to stop events from happening etc. The fact is that some of these events, as dire as they seem actually prompt people to seek Him. In some instances, people consult mediums, attend seances, seek “mystic meg” types, Follow astrological readings and signs but yet refuse to acknowledge God, or his existence! There is I believe a God-shaped vacuum in every human being seeking Him but gets filled with position, fame, drink, sex, lust for all sorts that bring more emptiness.

It seems that the more we acquire, the more we want…an endless cycle of frustration. The other thing I marvel at is timing! Can you believe that despite the dictates of experts, consultants some things will not happen when we will it but at His timing, giving him super authority over everything. I am so glad I belong to him.

Is she the right one? #blog #blogging

So I was attending a wedding 🎩 👰 where the bride and groom were about to exchange their vows. The minister asked for the one giving her away and her father came forward claiming it was him. The minister asked if he was happy with the proceedings so far because another previous ceremony had left the father of the bride then, quite upset. This father said he was.

Next the minister asked the groom to lift up the veil to check if he had the right woman at the altar. The congregation burst into rapturous laughter as he reminded us this was not the first time a bride 👰 had been switched for the groom.

Finance lessons taught by Mummy! #blog #blogging

My mum noticed that we would sit on the fence outside the house and buy anything the “street hawkers” were peddling so that when the day was up, or rarely, week was up we were broke. For some reason I started learning to save my money as I was not sure about our spending. I would then bail out or help others if they needed money.

What I like best was that my mum studied our spending patterns and realised (market research) we were spending on sweets and worked out the type of sweets we bought by asking – survey.

That’s how we began to run a sweet shop in the store of mummy’s kitchen.

Walking 🚶‍♀️with Mayor #blog #blogging

I spent a reflective and fun day with the beautiful Madam Mayor, Cllr Sanchia Alasia.
Very easy to talk to and soft spoken and direct, we were spending the time raising funds for her three chosen charities: Endometriosis, Pennu and Afruca. They could not be more diverse as they cater for suffers of a condition where womb tissue grows outside it; for wellbeing of the maturing people and campaign against child abuse / human trafficking, respectively.
So after the night before

Living with mum, can be fun but… #blog

Her wisdom surpasses mine in so many ways. She’s seen it all, “almost,” so when she says to go to Costco and buy in bulk to save it deserves more than a cursory nod of the head in agreement. I take her point. She’s so right about these things.

The big 40! #blog #blogging

I asked the First Lady for permission to get people on the train to sing her a song. She was politely arguing her refusal when I suddenly jolt-started her by getting up and making a plea. Somewhat unusual for dressed ladies with lipstick as this was a usual thing with people who had either musical instruments or tins to collect money.

So unqualified yet God-qualified #blog #blogging

How well will it go to say to a King you have come on a mission to release their workforce from ‘slavery and oppression’ of a cruel rule?Not nice or easy. As if that was not bad enough, Daddy says, “by the way, this King will give you a tough time and I will need to do some killing before he lets you release my People!”

An impossible task made in heaven and articulated to man on earth.

Let’s review this man’s qualifications again?
– foreigner
– Born to slave parents
– Fugitive / wanderer
– Murderer on the run about to be extradited.
– Current CV occupation: shepherd last 40 years, expert in sheep 🐑 conversation 💭 and rearing
– Nervous speaker
– Stuttered Speech.
– Maybe low self esteem
– And more…🙊

Arguing with God #blog

Did Daddy’s book not say, “Gods ways are past finding out…”. God can DO and UNDO anything, anytime, anywhere, anyhow. Isn’t that why He is God? I can’t help thinking that this encounter was in direct response to my plea and prayer the night before.

Understanding #blog

This feels a little rushed… I don’t think I have been this aware of how powerful gratitude is! There are so many different ways God has shown His deep, unfailing love and sense of humour in my life and friends’. (Hope punctuation is good). Well I had the amazing opportunity to chat to another believer…

Daddy’s book tips rule #blog

How many times do we get approached about a business opportunity with slated prices, quotes and terms that we feel are good? But after agreeing to it, we hear of someone else’s deal and feel we should have negotiated for more?

A story in my life comes to mind. I had applied twice for a role, same documents and all before I was called to an interview. To get the best chance I had answered every question, written verifiable completed examples of the tasks listed in job description to show my eligibility for the role. At the interview I was pretty confident about getting the position until one question ‘threw’ me! Undaunted but a little lacking in that confidence I had at the start, I offered an answer…
