One afternoon before Easter, I was ironing cotton dresses and shirts for church the next day. Six year old Mara watched for a while and then pointed to the iron and asked,
"What is that mummy?"
I laughed because I realized that this little girl had never seen me iron; I usually used the clothes dryer as my wrinkle smoother when I wasn't looking for perfection but rather efficiency. Actually it was not just the iron that seldom received attention as I mothered a large family, something that I considered essential was eliminated from my life with the birth of every child....

One visit from Grandma Jean and Grandpa Ron occurred when Jean and Ruth were about four and five years old. Grandma apply a touch of make-up each morning and my little girls were fascinated because they had never seen anything like it. I wasn't interested in make-up in those days and frankly there wasn't time anyway; I was lucky if I managed to brush my teeth and throw some real clothes on by noon.
Finally, after a few mornings of watching the longing on her granddaughters' faces, my mom asked, "Would you like me to give the two of you a make-over?"
Jean and Ruth were almost... Read More
At times you wished to yell and begged for your innocence but strangely conditions ceased stopped you. Why could you not speak your mind? The answer is simple. You cultivated the silence in your own thoughts. The result was excruciating pain as when you tried to speak, you were unable to share your voice. The result was guilt. You were declared offender. To be prosecuted for the cognizable offence you were questioned incessantly and people formed positions to draw inference of your mindedness.
Your display of anxiety, conveniently invited insinuation from the people around you.... Read More
True love is without conditions, it endures, forgives, loves you just for who you are. Only a man or woman who understands and give true love can receive and know true love. True love is from God, hence the reason you will know true love when you see or meet it.
t is one thing to read about unconditional love and another to show it. When God talked about what love is, I thought I understood and had that type of love but I didn’t until God thought it to me through meeting other people and truly loving them for who they are and not as I would like them to be.

In a family of eleven, everything is a big deal.However it was bath time, grooming time, story time and bed time that took a lot of creative problem solving abilities as well as a big investment in time. On hectic days this routine became an assembly line. Step one:I would add a little more hot water to the tub and the next little one would hop in and start playing as they waited their turn. Meanwhile I dried a little body, wrapped them up in a huge towel, brushed their hair and set up a tooth-brush for the clean child. After brushing their teeth, the clean little kid proceeded into...

Today I saw a movie by name OH MY GOD and certainly, that moved me a lot. We all, so casually sign contracts to agree upon the contractual obligations, that on account of losses due to Act of God, the insurance cover is not available. Conveniently the God is inserted in the legal documents and THE GODS ACT CANNOT BE CHALLENGED IN ANY COURT OF LAW…However, in this movie a petitioner who incurs huge losses on account of, request court to summon messengers/custodians of God into the court for compensation. He pleads that since it is an ACT OF GOD, the God must compensate him and that’s how he... Read More
