I heard a woman groaning in the middle of the night, she came from loud and calmed down a little and eventually picked up on the sound. I couldn’t sleep and all I wanted was a restful night after a long day and she couldn’t allow me that. It was the prayer of this earnest person, tired of the way things are going. Repeating incarnations over and over, It was evident that she’s been through the pit of lion and in the valley of death and her only option was this God she was praying to. What prompts this heartfelt prayer, lose sleep in the middle of the night. I believe in the supernatural, I believe in God and I believe that the honest tears of a righteous person drop right in palms of this helper and there’s ever present help in moments like these, faith as little as a mastard seed moves mountains. The world works together for those who trust. I will surely come back and write about this lady when I see the results of her 3 am prayer when things finally change 😊
I knew for a fact that I had to smile the next morning Even though I had a sleepless night With nightmares from my past With a heavy heart bleeding for the people I care for now I knew for a fact that I had to be strong Even though I was crumbling deep down The pain I felt was too much as Christmas closed in I knew for a fact that I have a family that depended on me And I couldn’t tell the tale with my eyes straight My head was low, as the reasons kept resounding in my mind Like I owed the world explanation For my inability to provide It was all in my mind Because they didn’t have to see it The pain and the burden I carried So heavy I could use a hand in the moment Each one too far to reach me They didn’t have to see it The bended knees and bruised back from the weight overload I let them see the shining star Bright as The smile of a thousand blossoming lillies My efforts futile sometimes, They still see a hero staring into those eyes!
I caught myself singing a lot lately, well everyone sings in their heads and most times in the bathroom and kitchen, right🤔 Three weeks ago I met a prophet of God who told me my calling is to sing I laughed so loud in my mind and thought, ofcourse I’m called to sing to myself, I sing three tones in one line, talented right? Fast forward to this moment now, it just dawned on me how powerful an idea is, even though I wasn’t convinced by the man if God, my brain registered the idea and it caused a series of involuntary actions to actually be better at singing. I have watched children waste themselves because their parents told them they would never amount to anything in life I know adults who won’t make decisions without consulting mum because she’s the yardstick of life and perfection itself I know women who don’t know they are beautiful because a man told them they aren’t I know kids struggling in school because their parents never appreciate any effort and think nothing they do is good enough I could go on and on, we all know this and some of us struggling with the same I know it is true for sure Be careful what you say and how you say it, the world needs more of kindness and bright ideas, you’ll never know the impact of your words, I’d like to call them ideas They turn people into great men and women They turn into money, creating a generation of financially independent people
So what if I feel more than I should Isn’t life a summension of feelings, both awkward and pleasant So what if it could get bad, but what if it gets better The uncertainty of falling in love makes it more interesting But when does love begin At what point do you realize your heart is nolonger yours but shared with a significant other Wait, how does one get the title significant Is it not in the simple things and everyday acts of kindness Well yes, this is about someone special aren’t we all looking for that one special person That makes your blood rush and heart pump twice as much, he got his! Is he the right one? Who cares Do we deserve everything that comes to us, definitely not Do we ask for it, sometimes not, it just happens in a blink of an eye And life gifts you the ability to feel so much for another We might not know what the future hold Pardon me, we don’t what the future holds But today is here with us And we make the most of it To love, to laugh, to give, and to live with all we have And today, I choose to be the best I can be, to live in the moment for myself No regrets
In the midnight hour
when it gets quiet
All you hear is the sound of nature and your own breath
And the heart beating so fast
Like a warning to just stop thinking
The day is finally dawning
When I’ll understand why
What the heart was trying to warn me
Is it bright or dooms day
My mind wonders, as my heart beats twice as fast
The feeling overwhelmes me
But who I’m I to question the future I can not see or control
All I have is now To deal with the darkness sorrounding my path
It looks like the sun has never shone
But deep down I know what’s true
Troubles come in the night, but they don’t last
Joy comes in the morning!
Oh how I long for that day
When all the pieces are in place How heavens play a game And yet I worry
Tell my heart to beat again
For good news looms around
Even though I’m blinded by my eyes that see today
Tell my heart to hope again
For there’s all answers ahead
Tell my heart to look up to the sky
To see the stars that shine bright every night when it’s dark
For they shine through my path even now
Until my morning comes
Tell my heart the day will shine brighter than I’ve ever seen
Bring on tomorrow 👽 I got today One day at a time looks like this You go to bed anyway and wake up by default You are alive and that’s what you count You are well and not sick. No pain And memories of what you used to be haunt you Giving you endless worries you can not resolve It’s the test of faith of the unknown It ain’t easy but you keep crawling forward Because your legs can’t run anymore They’re too sore to self suffice The strength of the Lord takes over purely Your heart fights against you Your mind is asking How’s tomorrow gonna be But your truth is that you survived today So bring on tomorrow Cause anyway is a way I got today checked Bring on tomorrow I’ll keep crawling forward Until my legs get the strength to run and My hands get the wings to fly Bring on tomorrow
Cooking can sometimes feel like a chore at the end of a busy day. It’s often tempting to throw a ready meal in the oven or call for take out. But preparing a simple and healthy family meal doesn’t have to be hard or time-consuming. Here are some quick wholesome dishes that you and your family will love. They can even be prepared in advance.
I know, what could be better that a steaming plate of fries, gravy and cheese curd? Fries, gravy, cheese curd and bacon, that’s what! Throw in some fresh shallots, chilli, and a splash of roasted bone marrow and duck gravy, and we turn this popular French-Canadian dish into a something sublime.
During the week we’re often walking out the door with a coffee in one hand and slice of toast in the other, but on weekends breakfast is never rushed. It’s a late affair, sometimes spilling over to lunch, with lots of reading and chatter in between courses of fruits, poached eggs, honey and toast. One of our favorite things we like to serve when friends are visiting are buckwheat blueberry pancakes.
There’s nothing better than a warm bowl of pumpkin soup on a cold autumn day. Combine your roasted pumpkin with some onion, garlic, vegetable broth, and a few spices, and give it some time to simmer away. Pair it with a few slices of fresh bread to turn it into something sublime.
