In a circle of true Friends each man is simply what he is: stands for nothing but himself. No one cares two pence about anyone else’s family, profession, class, income, race, or previous history. Of course you will get to know about most of these in the end. But casually. They will come out bit… Continue reading KINGLINESS OF FRIENDSHIP
Jesus, friend of sinners open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers. Let our hearts be led by mercy. Help us reach with open hearts and open doors. Jesus, friend of sinners, the one who is writing in the sand. Made the righteous turn away and the stones fall from… Continue reading COME AS YOU ARE
Its 6:00 am. Sunday morning, the first Sunday of the year. I am meant to complete a list. My prayer points this year and I cannot shake off this nagging feeling to sit down and reflect. It is that time of the year where we are all writing down prayer points. Coming up with resolutions.… Continue reading THE ANTHEM
Be careful little eyes what you see. It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings. Be careful little feet where you go, for it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow. Be careful little ears what you hear when flattery leads to compromise, the end… Continue reading BE CAREFUL LITTLE LIPS
When you have reached your own room, be kind to those who have chosen different doors, and to those who are still in the hall.

Then suggest… Continue reading TO LOVE AND BE LOVED

Belle Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the… Continue reading BLESSED ARE THE MEEK.
"Am I proof that YOU are who YOU say you are? That grace can really change our heart? Do I live like your love is true? People pass and even if they don’t know my name, is there evidence that I’ve been changed? When they see me do they see YOU?"-Sidewalk Prophets in Live like… Continue reading MORE THOUGHTS ON BEING SALTY
