How to get up when you feel sad and down!

  Humans are generally groupies. I think that is how we are wired. To be with other humans, working together towards sometimes similar and often times not so similar goals. Why else would there be a saying like ‘No man is an island’? 😊 No, it is true, no man is an island, we all need someone or some people to help us, cheer us along. We also need to help others, cheer them along, pull them up. But what happens when everyone ...

Letting go and Letting God take control

My friend is moving to another province in a few months and we were chatting about how much we would visit each other. This is not her first move, so she is feeling a bit sad, scared, wondering where to start, what to start with, children’s school, where they will stay, friends and clients being left behind. It is not easy. As we were chatting, she sent me the following and I thought it was too good not to share so I got her permission to ...

8 ways to give yourself love on care on Valentines Day

  February is the month of love. Cliché as it might be, I think we need a month of love. People are generally in a better mood in February. Chocolates, flowers, gifts all around! Who wouldn’t be in a good mood. My husband and I have never celebrated valentines day, but it has given us a lot of perspective regarding our love life. It serves as a reminder that we need to love each other more and more each and every day, not just in ...

Because sometimes you will not win

  I completed the 15K race in 2 hours and 7 minutes. It wasn’t the greatest time by any means, but for me it was perfect. I had a training injury the week before and though I tried to rest more my legs felt like they were getting heavier and more painful by the day. I bought a cream to massage on my legs and though it seemed to work, imagine my shock when 2 days later I was breaking out. I was reacting to the cream, so I stopped. I went ...

Keep the fire burning!

  It is the beginning of the year and boy are we all not raving about goals and resolutions! Don’t get me wrong, I am not hating. I have a list of my own goals that I want to achieve this year. I actually don’t remember making any new year goals for 2017. I think I was burnt out from a hectic 2016. In 2017 I just wanted to live and live fully. I lived, but I don’t think I lived fully. Why? Well, it only came to me recently that the bulk ...

Learning to ask

  Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.      James 4:2 It had been close to a month without the female toilets near us having seat sanitizers. I saw and greeted the cleaning lady more than twice a day. I thought of ...

That the works of God should be revealed

Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the ...
