The Sun: The Perfect Analogy for God

"Turn your face to the Sun and the shadows fall behind you.” ☀️🌅 This quote really resonated with me as I read it this morning! It is so true - especially when it’s starting to get colder here, the moment you feel the sun’s rays warming you up, it’s as if the cold never existed! … Continue reading The Sun: The Perfect Analogy for God

Lent: Pray, Fast, Give

I think this picture really encapsulates the spirit of Lent. Why do we fast? To feel miserable and humble ourselves? Or maybe to empathise with the less fortunate? Why do we pray? To grow closer to God? To remember those who are suffering? Or for God to fulfil our selfish needs and desires? Prayer and … Continue reading Lent: Pray, Fast, Give

The Most Malevolent Nightmare

Its 545am and I have just woken up, still a little tired, but never in my life have I been so afraid to fall back asleep!  I have just had 2 consecutive dreams (nightmares would be the better word).

The Warmest Church Welcome!

Yesterday on my way to the bank, I chanced upon a church as I followed the path Google Maps was leading me on - Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

Finding A Prayer Closet in My Room!

For awhile now I’ve been wondering why there is this small space in the corner of my room next to the window. There is nothing there except an empty shelf, lots of cobwebs and daddy-longlegs 🕷! Then this morning after I prayed the rosary beside my bed, divine inspiration struck and I think God told … Continue reading Finding A Prayer Closet in My Room!
