I was just pondering on the past few months of this year. As I sit pondering on what the next month is going to be like, I just wanted a word from God. Anytime I ask God for a word and He answers like He’s been waiting for me to ask, it’s always a word […]

Hubby Dearest threw me a Surprise ‘Party’ over the weekend as it was my birthday! I didn’t believe he had it in him, I couldn’t believe I could be surprised. You see, I see myself as a ‘Detective’ – seeing things and hearing things others won’t pick out easily. I didn’t think anyone could pull […]

“Why do I need to keep telling you the same thing everyday?” I asked, sounding quite miffed.
