Honestly, perhaps it is because I live in New Zealand - a country that went COVID free for over 100 days - and are still doing pretty well..

  • Finding peace in my garden

    During this time of fear and uncertainty it is important to find something to do that brings you joy. For some it might be baking, some it might be a creative outlet. For some it might just be time with their family (while still following the recommended “social distancing” of course).

  • Through the storm

    Everybody on this earth faces challenges or difficulties at some point of their lives. No one is immune from trauma or suffering. But as Christians, how do we cope when things go wrong? And what does God teach us during those struggles?

  • One precious pearl

    Precious: adjective – of great value; not to be wasted or treated carelessly.

  • I surrender…do I?

    Some people say that money makes the world go around. Perhaps it might be more accurate to say that communication makes the world go around.
