Beautiful Forever

I am amused by some snow questions I get from my cousin who lives half-way across the world from me. He is curious about how it looks, how it feels to touch, if it makes a sound when it falls, and if it’s really as magical as it appears in the movies. “I bet it’s […]

Circle of Six

It was supposedly just going to be a laidback gathering but it quickly turned into an intense discussion on the intolerance of the wrong and the rules that govern us. I am being asked on my take on things and I immediately recognized what was happening. I thought to myself ‘this circle of six I’m […]

Joyful Farewell

I’ve recently learned that my friend lost her husband to a heart attack only four years into their marriage leaving her and two very young kids behind. I reached out to express my sympathy. And for the first time in a very long time, I felt a level of fear that has been absent in […]

Hope in the Dark

My God believes

What a morning! The messages I woke up to got me enthused for the day quicker than usual. I habitually wait till late to respond to faith issues on group discussions, but this one I just couldn’t pass up. It seemed so complicated, but like with all matters concerning the God of love, it actually […]

Pause to Love

I hate having to say ‘I told you so’… I do not like being right about things that are disheartening. Often, people ask for my insight, I tell them my take on things, if they end up not following my advice I take it to my knees and pray ‘Lord, please let me be wrong.’ […]
