Fiction, finally.

Hello friends, How are you all doing? I’ve had a very good day today, thank God! I’ve been really productive, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work. I don’t take it for granted that I’m getting an education. 😀 I just read this incredible story in a devotional that my friend sends to me. The devotional is called The Daily Encourager. They have great devotions, and a lot of very good writers. I did not write this story, I got it in my inbox and decided to share. It’s a lovely, lovely story so please take your time to read and tell me what you think in the comments below. The Parable of the Three Trees Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods.  They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, “Someday I hope to be a treasure chest.  I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems.  I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty.” Then the second tree said, “Someday …

Here’s what happened when I tried praying for those who hurt me

Hello friends, I hope you’re doing okay! I certainly am, because I’m on a break from school and it’s been the absolute best. I’ve been surprisingly productive so far. I guess we finally are growing up 🙂  Today I want to write something that’s sort of a sequel to my last post, where I spoke about God defending Moses when he (Moses) was accused by Aaron and Miriam. Someone (very kindly) left a comment asking about praying for those who offend you/ hate you and asked what I think about it. Here is an excerpt from the comment: “I totally agree with all you have written, although I have always found the whole praying for your enemy thing counterintuitive. I feel it’s not natural for you to want to forgive someone who hurt you. It feels almost impossible.I am confused because I find it hard to imagine how sincere one can be in doing that.” In this post, I’m writing completely from my personal experience. I did not read about this in any book. I …

Have you ever been the subject of gossip?

It’s story time! Before we read the story, please think about a time when you were the subject of gossip. We’ve all been there: we’ve heard the bad things that people said about us, or that one time when we shared something personal with one person, and that information found wings and spread like wildfire. Actually, we probably have spread others’ information and failed to keep our mouths shut when we should have, so this story is for everyone: the good, the bad and the ugly (remember, and He saw that everything He had created was good, indeed, it was very good). Here’s the gist: Moses and Aaron said bad things about Moses and the Lord Himself came to fight for his bestie, Moses. Sigh. Lord, please come and fight for me also. The Lord would fight for me, but have I made the sacrifices that Moses made? Moses fasted for 40-days twice. The last fast I did defeated me like a bulldozer *insert sad face* Please read the excerpt for yourself to find out …

A Photo Project

Hello friends, I hope you’re all doing well For today, I have our weekly soundtrack and a few pictures I took a few days ago while playing with my phone camera. I think the pictures look quite decent. What say you? I’m thinking of writing short poems to attach with each of these pictures. I’m just quite shy to share the poems I write, but God will deal with that soon 😀 I’m not sharing anything personal today because I already shared a lot in my last post 😀 I wrote a few random personal things and I hope you loved it. I did enjoy working on that post quite a lot, and I’d like to do more spontaneous personal posts like that more often. Here is your song for the week. It’s a little bit of a different song but I really like it and I hope you do also! Just incase you’re wondering, I took all the pictures myself, but I have to upload them at that size because they don’t look as good …
