Giggles, chatter and children

I can’t imagine life without children and lately I have a deep longing to see and hear my little nieces and nephews more than ever. They remind me that life is beautiful and that there are so many ways to enjoy life. They find the silliest of things to giggle about and seem to not have anything to care or worry about. We can learn quite a bit from them. They are like the prettiest flowers in your garden that always catch your eye and lift your spirits.


Psalm 127:3 - Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

New life…

Even the flimsiest of trees and plants can withstand a harsh winter. I have learnt a lot from them – that one can be battered and bruised in one season of your life and stand up strong and flourish in another season. While some die in winter, others are resistant and survive.



2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.


This is the day…

Despite the circumstances, despite the uncertainty of today, we have one constant. Let’s enjoy our family, our children, our loved ones and the things around us while we can. Each of us have a lot to be thankful for. Let us count our blessings.

Psalm 118:24 - This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.

And God saw that it was good…

If you have ever visited the Grand Canyon or a breathtakingly beautiful place, you will know this statement rings true. You will certainly see the glory of God’s creation. You simply cannot take in the beauty and marvel without thinking of the Creator. I remember standing for the longest time taking in the spectacular sights of the canyon. Pictures just don’t do justice to its overpowering majesty, and the awe stays with you long after you leave the canyon.
