First, homeschooling is going on well. The kids have learned so much, we have bonded more with them and all the pencils in our house are short of erasers. I thought we had more than enough pencils until we started homeschooling. But guess what? I’m getting more comfortable with this journey. It’s a crazy good one.
Fourthly, my hair! My hair!! My hair!!! I purchased the wig you see me rocking on the picture on top. But this hair looks “jaga jaga” to me oo. Or is it that I’m not wearing it well? Is this how it is supposed to be? This afternoon, the wind kept blowing fiercely on it as though some evil person sent it to take off the wig and disgrace me. That’s it! I’m getting braids!
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.
14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
(Matthew 5, NLT)
These words spoke deep into my soul this morning. You are the salt of the earth. Don’t lose your saltiness. LET your light shine; You have to let your light shine. It should be intentional. Don’t just live hoping that your light will shine. Put that lamp on a stand and not under the table. Be a bold Christian. Be ‘aggressive’ with your generosity. Be ‘aggressive’ with your Christ-likeness. Let your light shine. To me, I’ll start by paying more attention to my neighbours, greeting them even when their heads are bowed and genuinely caring for them.
