Is Singledom Temporary?

‘When are you going to get married?’ Society, especially Christians, seem to view singledom as a temporary state. Singles are constantly inundated with questions about their love lives and relationship plans. I remember, when I was single, random strangers would ask invasive questions about blokes on my horizon. Like it was any of their business. […]

Go With The Flow

When I wake up on my writing day, my brain is often awash with creative ideas and projects. I sometimes have several competing blog ideas swirling around in my head. It can be hard to know which one to blog. And it is not just blogging that fires up my creativity. There is the allure […]

Happy Mother’s Day

To those who have never borne children But have carried a life inside them, Growing, growing, Only to have it snatched away Before its time. To those who have never known The sensation Of carrying another But who wanted it, Wished for it, Planned for it, Grieved for it. To those who have loved children, […]

Thankfully, I was not too far into the preparation when the procedure was called off. It could have been a lot worse. The hospital procedure was not the […]

Fearless at the Cliff-Edge

Pandemics bring out interesting phenomena in people. Scrolling through social media, one might easily believe the apocalypse has arrived. “Doom! Doom!” They seem to shout. “It’s the end of the world!” One would think the world had already ended. In the face of such panic and pandemonium, it is easy to become afraid. We are […]
