It is “very good”!

This weekend, we brought my sister’s three kids over to our house so that they would have time with their cousins and my sister and her hubby would have a romantic weekend.

You may think that my husband and I are very nice to do that but my sister and her loving husband do that same kindness to us too until recently.

Well, we can now leave our kids home and go out to have romantic nights. And these days, our two teenagers are kind of independent with lots of their own activities and they don’t seem to be that much interested on “play time” with kids, excuse me, no more babies; (and the oldest child of my sister is one year older than our youngest son. So, go figure!). Continue reading It is “very good”!

It is Okay not to Do It as Everybody

I’m not sure if this season is summer or still winter. It is crazy down here. When we officially claim the coming of summer and say “Goodbye” to winter, we find winter excusing itself back into the game again. So it is kind of confusing if you know what I mean.

Well, who can tell the weather to follow our calendar? No one but God! So, I leave that to the One who knows what He is doing with the weather while I go back to my reason I sat down here now to write this. Continue reading It is Okay not to Do It as Everybody

On the Top of the Mountain

If we avoid to be spiritually challenged in every area of our lives, we forgo the opportunity for us to go to the top of the mountain.

If we only look for those who bless us, give us all those encouraging and uplifting comments, messages and Bible verses, we will be spiritually “malnutrition”. If we are spiritually “malnutrition”, we lose any strength to finish our journey “on the water”. We won’t have any motivation to keep on keeping on. Continue reading On the Top of the Mountain

Disguised Fire

He was not going to church as often as he used to. He had good fellowship with some Christian friends but he kind of caught up with busy life and felt estranged from them and the things of God.

Then little by little, his prayer-time turned from one hour to five minutes. He knows that he is a good looking guy who attracts any woman in his vicinity. At times he blamed his look for finding himself in bed with a number of women he didn’t even know their full names. He swore to God and himself never to have sex with a woman before marriage but he didn’t seem to be able to stick it out. Continue reading Disguised Fire

The Heart of a Child

I was writing one beautiful story to share with you all tomorrow, if it is God’s will.

Then something caught my attention for me to stop what I was writing and started writing this.

So, all our kids went to bed while Berhan and I stayed in the kitchen, catching up with our emails and everything else. Then our little one came down and said, “Mom, I’m still waiting for you to pray for me.” Continue reading The Heart of a Child

Beyond the Fairytale

It would be an understatement if I say, “I’m excited”.

Didn’t I tell you all last time that the title, “Beautiful Cinderella” of my book didn’t pass the scrutiny of the editors? Well, here comes the new title they came up with, the one I literally, instantly fall in love with, the one I gave two thumbs up to:

“ Beyond the Fairytale,

with a subtitle:

“An Appeal for Sexual Purity.” Continue reading Beyond the Fairytale

Marriage and Dating are Different for Men

Marriage is very different from dating. Dating has some sort of excitement to it almost every day. It is sweet and makes life bearable. Especially for a girl who stole a man’s heart, it is a blast. She may sometimes feel that she is flying on the air. She easily embraces herself as the most beautiful and attractive person ever created on this planet earth.

When she ignores him, he texts her five hundred “I love you” and “I’m so sorry” messages and she continues ignoring him, just to receive more romantic messages. Continue reading Marriage and Dating are Different for Men

A Prayer of A Wife to Her Husband

Thank You, LORD, for giving me another day to come to You in prayer. May Your Name be blessed forever!

I have received many good and perfect gifts from You, LORD.

Above all the gifts, LORD Jesus, You gave me Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die for me on the Cross so I might live for You. Jesus, You became sin for me so I might be God’s righteousness. Thank You, Lord Jesus! Continue reading A Prayer of A Wife to Her Husband

What is on your table?

It was around September of 2009. I was reading one of the daily devotional Bible study materials I used to receive via email. And I ran into an interesting article and I read it and at the end, it read, “if you want to sign up for a 40 weeks long daily Bible study note, give us your email”.

I signed up. “I mean, what do I lose? If I don’t like it, I will “unsubscribe”. That is all.” I thought to myself. Continue reading What is on your table?
