Another Chapter Comes To An End

We have spent approximately 14 weeks in the Reconstructed sessions at RLabs. The sessions have indeed been informative, relevant and more importantly useful!

I still marvel at the work of God's hands, understanding and knowing the background of these facilitators, how circumstances could have been so different for them. But thanks to God's grace he has removed them from a life of gangsterism and drugs and chosen them to be leaders, blessed them with gifts and talents to change the lives of others.

The have adopted the slogan "Social Media for Social Change". I am privileged this evening to be a participant in these sessions. And today I just want to thank everyone who has been instrumental in the classes. To all the facilitators: Craig, Brent, Monique, Marlon, Clinton, Clive, Jason and guest speaker Aslam Levy.... YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

May 2011 have an even greater impact on RLabs.

Much love

Prayer is a powerful antidote for negativity.

It's almost 4am on a Saturday morning and I cannot sleep. I'm feeling anxious, a feeling I've come to hate.
Confidence and self assurance are some of my good character traits, and feelings that are comfortable for me. God's inner peace is a daily prayer requirement. It's something He blesses me with abundantly.
But I think God wants me out of my comfort zone sometimes because how does one grow and learn when everything runs smoothly.
I've had a week filled with many emotions: happiness,thankfulness (even when I'm feeling a little negative, I am always thankful for my blessings),contentment,boredom,anxiety,hurt,anger....and it's all normal, I have to remind myself. Show me a person who doesn't experience these feelings from time to time. The antidote for the negative feelings 'PRAYER'.
So till next time, I need to talk with my God.

My Amazing Morning

Last night in Social Media class we were encouraged to blog more. To blog about what we thinking, what we passionate about, etc.

So this morning I want to tell everyone, what an awesome morning I'm having and what I'm thinking.

First of all, I'm feeling rejuvenated,energised,peaceful and happy with my lot in life. I started off my day by sending my beautiful family off to work,school and creche. I'll miss them for the day but I have to be honest and say that, I enjoy my alone time. And when they walk through the front door at night, I'm that much happier to see them. Once they left, I finished my chores and sat down and went through all the different Taebo workouts. I normally do the cardio workout but felt like doing something a bit different this morning. So to my delight I found a workout that is called 'Inner Strength' and while you work out you praise the Lord and call on His name to give you strength. The workout ends with a prayer. And had my tears flowing because I felt so thankful and blessed at that moment that Jesus Christ revealed Himself to me and like He was saying 'Don't worry,I'm here, I'm in everything that you do'. So that was just such an amazing start to my day.

And second of all I'm pondering my unemployment. I know that I need to go work to help my husband because we have set ourselves goals but I am honestly loving it at home. I feel like I have more patience and that I get much more done and that I can tend to my families needs in an extra extra special way. I have an idea for a small business and need to STOP procrastinating because that seems to be my problem.
As I said it's just something I'm pondering and really not something I'm stressing about because it's all in God's time.

Thanks for letting me share my AWESOME morning with you. Hope you all have a great day.
