Life: Seeing Friendship in #GodsColourScheme

If you’re following me on Twitter you know there’s rarely a week that goes by when I’m not tweeting about how God has blessed me with some awesome friends. For a while now I’ve been wanting to post about friendship, but every time I tried, it never felt like “yeah this is it right here” – something was missing. Now if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my little series of pictures #PetalPower. I’ve had some of these floral snaps on my phone for a while (dating back to Valentines Day 2014*). I always knew I wanted to post them, I just didn’t, until I was forced to create space on my iPhone! I didn’t want to delete the pictures until they had been posted and being that I had a few (only 14 of my few were posted) I said why not now? Then #PetalPower came to mind because it sounded cool, of course at the time, I asked God why Petal Power? I mean it has a nice ring to it, but ain’t …

Life: The Birthday Recap – 25 & Counting

The month of May officially ended last week, it also means that my birthday celebrations have also officially ended. I turned the amazing age of 25, and to have that much life sitting under my belt, is somewhat hefty! I have to admit though, I don’t remember the last time I was so excited about a birthday like this one, I had no particular reason to be so excited but I was and I’m still excited at the fact that I am 25! Looking back on it, everything I had planned, to celebrate my birthday, actually happened! Proverbs 16 verse 3: “Put God in charge of your work, then what you’ve planned will take place.” I can only be grateful to God for allowing me the chance to celebrate my birthday and to do so in New York. Considering that so many of my close relatives and friends share the same birthday month with me, made it that much more exciting by the time my birthday came around. Every week in May I had something planned; at the start …

Faith: I Gave Maria My Gloves!

One cold November evening after work I stopped to speak to a homeless lady who usually sits close by my office, at this time our conversations are frequent. Some loose and not so loose change, some coffees, turkey sandwiches and a few chocolate chip muffins, have also been common givings during our frequent catch-up-sessions. However this particular November evening it was really cold and I had my pair of thick, woolly, creamed-coloured H&M gloves in my bag. I had every intention of putting on my very warm gloves, but never got round to actually taking them out of my bag by the time I caught up to Maria sitting at her spot. With our usual pleasantries exchanged and a brief (yet always the same) Q&A, I offered to buy Maria her usual coffee with one sugar and half & half. As I handed her the coffee I heard God say “give her your gloves.” I laughed Him off, “like yeah right”, and insisted that my body turned in the direction that led to home. I …
