The Fruit of the Spirit – Kindness


kindnessOne of the positive aspects of our society is the fact that we witness acts of kindness being demonstrated daily to others. Persons donate money and material things to help victims of tragedies to get back on their feet. They help elderly persons to cross the road safely. Motorists on the main road will allow the other driver coming from a side road to exit. A few days ago, my wife’s money fell from her purse; a gentleman who was passing alerted her to what was happening. These are all acts of kindness that we are familiar with in our society.

King David in 2Samuel 9:1-12 deliberately sought after a descendant of King Saul for the purpose of showing him the kindness of God. Through his servant Ziba, David found out that Mephibosheth the son of Jonathan and grandson of Saul was still alive. Saul had made David’s life miserable…

The marriage saga- and why this generation is afraid of it.

Long Island Iced Tea

Let me be honest- the idea of marriage petrifies me and as I sit here typing these words out, my folks are probably busy sending my marriage-worthy-profile-photo to someone else, whose son, I believe would also be as jittery of this development as I am. (For those of you who are curious, I am talking about arranged marriages). This is funny given the fact that we, as girls, have been raised since the beginning of our childhood in a very prepare-your-daughter-for-marriage environment. I bet almost all of you ladies would have heard the sentence ”If you do this, who is going to marry you!”. The only difference is these words actually instilled fear in me back then and these same words evoke a response of “so what” now. So how did a child who wanted to grow up and get married ended up repelling the idea of marriage, HOW?

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great week. Many thanks to everyone who shared where they get their inspiration for their blogs – it became quite apparent that inspiration really can come from anywhere. Thanks for sharing your tips about keeping track of your ideas too. I’m definitely going to be implementing some of them.

Continuing with this month’s blogging theme, your question for this week is

What’s your favorite way to grow your blog, other than reading and commenting on others’ blogs?

Yeah, I know….I probably took away everyone’s top answer, but I thought it would be good to find out some of the other ways people have found to connect with others and grow their blogs. :o)

Here’s wishing you a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

Intentions for a New Year

Danielle Saborio

Happy New Year Everyone! I can’t believe that it’s already 2018 – I feel like 2017 has gone by so fast and now it’s already January 2nd and last year was just a dream. It’s funny to think back on moments from last year, the good and the bad. Each moment felt so intense, so real, but now looking back, all of it happened in just a second. None of the moments where I thought “This is so horrible, how can I be living through this?” or “How come this is happening?” – they never lasted – they always moved on – there was always a positive outcome at some point. When I think back on those moments, I kept asking myself why they couldn’t move faster – well they were all moving pretty fast because here we are, January 2nd 2018.

2017 was a pretty rough year on a…

A bauble for my baby

Emotional Mummy

Last year was our first Christmas as a little family. Smeckle was six months old and although she didn’t have a bloody clue what was going on, she was what made Christmas come alive again. She was a reason for the magic and the best excuse for us to relive our childhood!

She received her first letter from Father Christmas which came through the post with a packet of reindeer mix that was of course left out on Christmas Eve, accompanied by a couple of beers which managed to go down a treat! She even managed to wangle a date with the big guy himself! She was given her own elf name, Joyful Sugarsocks, along with a little elf hat and was led through the colourful grotto to receive her gift from him and his helpers. There, we had a mini photo shoot and was able to pick from the…

While I lay in ICU in the hospital, both of my kids visited me here in Spain. When I woke up, they both gave me these gifts by telling me, I would become 2 x Grandma, which absolutely gave me more to live and…

My own Safe Place

Aria-Bella Rises

safe place

I am my safe place and I trust my body to keep me safe”

When we stress, are anxious, panicking , worrying etc. it is because we are not trusting. We are not believing in OURSELVES enough. We are not putting any faith or trust in the universe. The list is pretty endless but it really comes down to ourselves or the trust we try to put outside of ourselves.

I made up and have been saying this affirmation to myself a hell of lot lately, mainly because I have been needing the constant reminder.

You see, when we don’t have faith in ourselves, to keep us safe, to make the right decisions, to do the right thing and say the right thing blah blah blah – that is when stress and anxiety and all those other nasty shitty things come creeping in. We may not even realise that…
