Today is such a special day and I would like to share it with you. Its meaning has evolved over the years. I have always remembered it as my father's birthday but the meaning changed to the day I realised that I had married the wrong person, to the day my marriage ended and now the birth of a mission that helps many around the world.
So I woke up this morning full of gratitude. I sang, danced and got ready to attend the thanksgiving mass that had been booked for me.
So after reading from scripture, we had a period of reflection. As I sat in church with my face mask on (in view of the current situation with covid), the event of my day of anguish, pain and confusion played before my eyes. Guess what, my heart was full of joy, gratitude and praise for that event. For the very first time, I said, ' Though it was painful, I would not have it any other way.'
Is there a date that you remember for all the wrong reasons? Is there pain tied to particular time of the...
Have you ever wondered how people become so great, rich and influential in society? Did they benefit from a gene pool lottery? Or were they just sooo lucky?
If you look closely at the lives and stories of these rich, famous and influential people, you would notice that they all had one thing in common.... OBSTACLES.

This path is there for us but we get to choose. Do you want the easy path or the path that leads you to your destiny?
Jesus Christ said, 'Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But...
Did you know that you were placed on earth and have a unique task? Have you figured out what it is yet? It is something we may drift by time and time again but only notice it when we are forced to.
But how do we figure it out? You may ask.
Well! the answer lies within. Without sounding overly religious, there is an essence inside each of us put in there by God. It is a creative power that makes us have the likeness of God. It is only when we are vibrating at the same frequency and tune in, that we discover what that task we were born to do is.
Interestingly enough, when we do not know the unique task we are destined to carry out, we feel unfulfilled, empty and wanting more. Hence, while some will think that the best option is to ignore the search, the feelings of emptiness can be overwhelming.
Some may discover their purpose quickly while others go through a long period of struggle. However, over the millennia of human existence, it has been noted that the one compelling...
