A Minute Meditation – February 28, 2018

I am writing this on the last day of February 2018. A day that will never come again. A day that one year ago, I had no idea that I would live to see. I am so thankful. Sure, we are probably waking up to several challenges surrounding us – at home, at work, in…

A Minute Meditation – February 27, 2018

A couple of months ago I was visiting a neighbouring island where I was dependent on a local person for transportation. As I wasn’t the only delegate this person was responsible for, I decided to ease their burden of returning to get me from an appointment one day, by walking back to the compound where…

There are many things that will cause a mother to immediately flip to DefCon panic mode, but looking away from your child for seemingly seconds only to look back and find him or her missing is probably in the top 3. I have never had that experience thankfully, but I have had some tense moments…

Does anyone have an easy life? If you do, you’re probably not reading this blog. After all, you’ve probably got folks to read it FOR you. Seriously though, while we generally acknowledge the fact that we live in a world filled with sin and its resulting chaos, we are usually still stumped when we face…

How do you show love and to whom? My family is my first thought, followed by my close friends. And well, I show my love for them by taking care of them, being kind to them or surprising them at times by doing something special for them. While that is all good, it doesn’t take…

A Minute Meditation – February 23, 2018

Living in a post-Category 5 hurricane state comes with its challenges. From living for months on end without electricity and all its benefits to adjusting to sporadic telecommunication access. The latter I’ve found to be my greatest challenge. I remember how frustrating it was not being able to reach my family and friends in the…

A Minute Meditation – February 22, 2018

Do you ever categorize your challenges? You know, you’ve got the little ones (minor irritations that provide daily annoyance) and you’ve got the medium-sized ones (they are on your mind a bit more) then the humongous ones (these rob you of sleep and peace of mind). Or maybe you categorize differently. We all have our…

A Minute Meditation – February 21, 2018

As a means of preparing myself for home ownership, I have been beefing up my knowledge of construction; and time and time again I have been instructed on the importance of a good foundation to the structural integrity of a house. Having been through two increasingly hulk-like hurricanes in the last three years, I can…

He Won’t Forget

Have you ever written things down on the palm of your hand? I have. What sort of things do you tend to jot down? I don’t do it often, but when I do, I write the things I don’t want to forget. Maybe it’s a must-get item at the grocery store; an important phone number;…

A Minute Meditation – February 19, 2018

There aren’t many things that can compare to the feeling of crushed dreams. Ok…there probably are. But that’s the point. Being unable to fulfill your hopes and dreams can overshadow everything in your life. It seems sooooo big! And that disappointment can drive us to our knees. But that’s exactly where we should be. Time…
