'BE'coming

Faith Through Her Eyes

An email from the Daycare centre on a Saturday morning was unusual. Our guess was right, it was unusual. It was a one-pager informing all Parents and Caregivers that someone at the Center tested positive for COVID-19 and affected parents will be contacted for further details. Up until now, the Center had been up andContinue reading “Faith Through Her Eyes”

Go Easy on Me!

As a child, I remember playing the video game ‘Street Fighter’, I liked the female fighters a lot and leaned in their direction for choice of players. Street Fighter allowed me to do things that could only happen in my imaginations. One of the female fighters always started a fight with the words, ‘Go easyContinue reading “Go Easy on Me!”

One and The Same

There is a story deep within me that needs to be told. An interesting adventure my life has been. In all the places I have been and with all the people I have met, I realise that we all have the same needs, similar wants and the same desire for love, respect and recognition. FromContinue reading “One and The Same”

Think like an Employer

Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty. (Proverbs 21:5 NLT) At the start of every year, most companies have a goals planning session where the management team reviews the prior year’s performance of the company and develops plans for the year in view and beyond. These companies careContinue reading “Think like an Employer”

Just Surfing…

One day, while I was sitting in the living room, I heard the words, “Hey Google, show me ballet practice lessons”. As it is programmed to do, Google obeyed and in no time, hundreds of ballet lessons downloaded. This request was made by a child. Just then, a thought came to me, what if sheContinue reading “Just Surfing…”

Young and Restless

Sometime ago, I used the words ‘Young and Restless’ to describe myself in a team introduction video. A few months later, I met some younger folks who were now where I was over a decade ago and I realised how much I had become ‘old and rested’. ‘Old and rested’, an interesting way to describeContinue reading “Young and Restless”

Money & Relationships

Money ranks high up there as one of the major conflict triggers in relationships. From business partners to couples, siblings and friends, it seems money has a way of binding or breaking. I have seen best friends and even lovers who seem completely devoted, parting ways because of a simple piece of paper with a symbol onContinue reading “Money & Relationships”

New Money

Every year, most of us get either a pay increase at work, a new job with higher pay or maybe finally get that first job right after school. The pay check that comes with any of these moves is what I refer to as ‘New Money’. ‘New money’ is the difference between your former netContinue reading “New Money”

Everyday Battles

I have heard it said frequently that the world is a battlefield and we are part of the war whether we like to admit it or not. From the moment that our waking eyes begin to attribute meaning to things, our consciousness is awakened to the battle between good and evil. From the pictures inContinue reading “Everyday Battles”

A Father’s Hand

One of the words I heard very often as a child was the word ‘strict’ used so many times to refer to my father. I too soon realized that he was a very strict man. He had a reputation for being straight forward, uncompromising in his beliefs and very orderly. You only needed to haveContinue reading “A Father’s Hand”

Whose Shoe is it?

As I walked casually in simple slipper that cost me less than $10, I do not recall the conversation in exact words but I think it went something like this, ‘Nice slippers’ and I must have replied, ‘Thank you, that is why I bought it’. (I heard that version of response from my cousin andContinue reading “Whose Shoe is it?”

League of ONE!

We had just finished our exams and with just one week left to our holiday, we had no studies and nothing to do in school. I cannot remember the class exactly, but it was Senior Secondary (High School). My friends and I decided that rather than go to school, we would hang out. One ofContinue reading “League of ONE!”

Am I really lazy?

It was my third Sunday Service in a new church, and I was beginning to settle in. I liked the Pastor; he delivers what I call the ‘Gospel Truth’. I like truth, you know the kind that we grew up hearing ‘hurts’. The hurt part is the shaping part that pulls you back in lineContinue reading “Am I really lazy?”

Finding Home

Recently I listened to the song “Ancient words” by The Acappella Company, and these lines jumped out at me: “Words of life, Words of hope, give us strength, help us cope. In this world, where-e ér we roam, ancient words will guide us home.” ‘Ancient Words will guide us home’ hmm! Home, a place ofContinue reading “Finding Home”

Baby Steps

Recently, I was reminded that moving is at the core of our being. Our creator first introduced himself as a mover and shaker. If we are really like him and not like trees, being stagnant should make us uncomfortable. So, if you have been doing the same thing for longer than required, it is timeContinue reading “Baby Steps”

Make that move

Risk, Unknown, Bold, Move, Change, Action, a few words that we have used frequently on this blog. Some months ago, I decided to take a year off work to rest, relax and reset – Codename R3. As I shared my plan with a friend, the reaction was “That is BOLD, I envy you”. Although, IContinue reading “Make that move”

Quick Question

Knowledge, they say is power! There are so many ways to acquire it, some routes take more time than others. In my quest for knowledge, I have relied on several quick questions to help me bridge the gap from ‘Unknown’ to ‘Known’. Since I cannot claim to know everything, quick questions have become a recurringContinue reading “Quick Question”

More than a day….

It is not unusual to hear some people refer to days like Valentine, Birthdays and Anniversaries as just another day. I think differently, first of all, every day is a blessing in my world. Another chance to do right, live better and do more. Special days are even more important as they mark the startContinue reading “More than a day….”
