Raising children would probably be the most tasking responsibility parents have. It’s easy to give instructions to guide them and maybe even spank them when they fail to follow your instructions. Being the example the children need isn’t always as easy as, “You are only allowed 30 minutes on your phone daily”, or “You are allowed on 1 hour with TV on school days”, or “You should be in bed by 8:30 pm on school days”. … More Encouraging Children: Boundaries in Freedom
I put up happy faces and bright smiles
And they are all just pushing you even further away
It’s gotten more difficult too because of the crowd I now find myself
And I don’t know any more how to get to you
Because you are unable to feel me and all the things inside … More My Smiley Face
When grief looms over like a cloud,
And your heart gets broken,
And your spirit is down,
It all seems like happiness is but a distant dream,
And it loses its meaning
Where it cannot be seen. … More It’s only just a matter of time
Every day, our experiences affect our emotions. Sunshine or rain clouds, our favorite song on the radio or an angry email at work – all of these can affect our mood, change the way we feel and influence the way we think.

It would seem cliché to post this article on a Sunday – it’s Sabbath and I’m talking about heaven. Anyway, so yesterday being Saturday I was at home with my family. The past one week has been something else, health-wise for me but its times like this that I know more than ever before that there has to be a God (who sits in the hearts of men who believe in Him) and rules the affairs of them. All the while my kids won’t stop going, ‘mommy I want this, mommy I want that’. Phew! Kudos to moms.
So just in a brief moment of yesterday, I got some relief from all the pain and discomfort and in that moment I thought, “What a relief. This feels like heaven”.
And my thoughts can go from just watching a butterfly to the wildest thoughts sometimes. I then began to think, if in this brief moment of relief it felt like bliss, like heaven then what is heaven? Where is heaven? What would it feel like? What would it look like? … More Where’s your heaven?
