Is any among you suffering?

Life can throw curveballs at us that we never saw coming. From simple missed opportunities to life-altering circumstances, we all face the vicissitudes of life. While I have not had life-altering issues, I have seen my own step-children lose their father tragically and horribly. The reality is that life’s not been fair to so manyContinue reading “Is any among you suffering?”

Jesus turns water into wine

The gospel of John chapter 2 verse 1-12 records Jesus’ first miracle at Cana in Galilee, of Him turning water into wine. The scriptures record that Jesus, his mother, his brothers, and his freshly called disciples were all attending a wedding when the wine ran out. John wrote this gospel with the intent that youContinue reading “Jesus turns water into wine”

Persistent faith

There is a call, a challenge for all of us to have faith, persistent faith. The kind that does not let go even in the face of no change in our circumstances. Should we pray over and over about a matter until God answers? The struggle is real when we read scripture passages that sayContinue reading “Persistent faith”

FAITH

What is Faith? This is a question I’ve been asking myself in recent days. In search of answers, I have looked into several scriptural passages where faith was commended or those reprimanded for lack of faith. I considered the Syrophoenician woman and the Roman Centurion, both non-Jews with pagan backgrounds, who were commended by JesusContinue reading “FAITH”

The Blue Mountains

The Blue and John Crow Mountains in Jamaica were designated a UNESCO World Heritage site many years ago. With several endangered tree species, these mountains rise over 2,000 meters with Elfin Forest due to stunted and gnarled appearance of trees which are heavily coated with epiphytes including hanging mosses, ferns, and tiny orchids.

Relationship warning signs- eight questions to ask yourself

Some relationships come with warning flags. Similar to the warning lights and gates at a railway crossing, ignoring them can place you in great danger. It’s almost like we have a built-in ‘relationship checker’ but the problem is it comes with an ‘OFF’ position, and often it gets into that position innocuously.   We were builtContinue reading “Relationship warning signs- eight questions to ask yourself”

The Mission of the Church

This morning September 29, 2020, Dr. James Dobson’s Open Letter to All Christians Regarding the Upcoming Election was published. Allow me to quote excerpts: How will Americans, and how will you, decide who to vote for as our Chief Executive Officer? I have heard from dozens of friends and acquaintances in recent weeks who tellContinue reading “The Mission of the Church”

Blood, bodies and bombs

I wrote the below article to the Miami Herald back in March 1997 as an assignment in a course being taken at Miami-Dade Community College. What I did not expect was that the Miami Herald called and invited me to a ‘open-house’ geared to the public on how articles and headlines are chosen for theContinue reading “Blood, bodies and bombs”

Maybe

Maybe…. What will be the lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic which has swept the globe? I believe one will be the new levels of appreciation which will emerge. Maybe for once we will truly appreciate the value of family and the support and togetherness, we all crave. So many are separated from loved onesContinue reading “Maybe”

What is truth?

An age-old question as relevant as ever today in a milieu of supercomputers, Alexa and Google. The definition, ‘quality or state of being true’ helps little to this great philosophical subject. We all hold and treasure opinions, thoughts and ideals which we believe are true, for to cling to a belief known to be false,Continue reading “What is truth?”

About Me

I have always known myself to be better at expressing myself on paper than verbally. Maybe that’s why I feel so unheard for most of my life. This is my attempt to change and the reason I created this blog.

Writing is second nature for me and here I hope to grow and develop this and most of all to be heard. My writings will range from topical societal issues, motivational pieces, blogs to challenge and stimulate thought to matters of Faith and Christian living.

My dual passion is to create and post images of this planet we call home which will move and evoke some sense of wonder. Beauty surrounds us from the details of a wildflower to a stunning sunset. My images attempt to convey the rawness and spectacle of life and to pass on what I felt at that moment.
