  1. The vengance belongs to the Lord  

    by , 3 Weeks Ago at 07:45 AM
    Yesterday I got the news. I wasn't getting the teacher's post I was sure to get. When I was called to the interview I was thinking: finally. My years as a temp is over. Full time work, financial security, accessible building, great co workers, close to home. I could feel the relief. I could taste it. I made plans. I am thought I knew where I was going to be and what I am going to work with until retirement.

    I was crushed. I went to my co workers office and wept my heart out. I wanted ...

  2. What am I doing here?

    by , April 1st, 2018 at 03:58 PM
    I have been here for a year or so, now. It has been a year of blessing, challenges, dissapointments and an immense growth and strengthening in my walk with Christ.

    I have enjoyed pouring my heart out in blogentries, meeting new friends, reading insightful posts.

    I used to enjoy the chatrooms, but it turned out to be too noisy to me. And I didn't appreciate some of the male approaches. Sometimes I might have got flattered, but luckily I came to my senses.

  3. While we are waiting for God(ot)

  4. That's what friends are for?

    by , February 24th, 2018 at 02:58 PM
    Friends come and go. Some are great for a while but then just fade away. And some leave abruptly. And some stays. And cares. No matter what.

    I have some friends left from pre school and primary school. They are great. But we all live in separate corners of this country. And non of them are Christians.

  5. Valentine hungover

    by , February 15th, 2018 at 07:03 AM
    I survived Valentine's day this year as well. I allmost managed to not dig myself down in the self pity ditch, until my lodger got a surprise visit from her boyfriend. Jealousy towards all the happily coupled grew and I tried to hide it with awwws and big smiles. Of course. Don't mind me. Go out and enjoy.

    I am accepting my life as it is. No problem. I have blessings I can count. And I try to expand that acceptance towards a permanent state of singlehood. That is the most likely prospect ...
