Many years have rolled by… pretty much alone with helping hands of friends along the way which I treasure and don’t down play.. Yet, nonetheless, it’s been overall an ‘alone’ trip physically but with God right there.

So for the meantime I thought of downloading wordpress for the phone and no I dont have facebook on my phone. I dont like … Continue reading New Idea
Pit stops is a term used for stops along a journey to refresh, rest or refuel. Obviously that has a positive connotation. Living in Sri Lanka though, maybe not so much as the present days compared to when I first … Continue reading Pit Stops of the Journey
These last few weeks have been one thing after the other, intended obviously by the enemy to disrupt work.. attacking my laptop and my phone, giving me the run around, trying to touch my health and even shake me emotionally. … Continue reading Until God says it’s over, it ain’t over!
