I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.

Strip away the rotten flesh, and dress it with clean bandages. I will not lose the leg. I will be healed. He makes a crown for my head with His hair. I drink the water the Father has given me. The Holy Spirit is with me. I bless him and he roosts on my head as a white dove.

He is the God of my salvation. I am His child, made clean in the blood of the Lamb. He will direct my steps. He has numbered my days. His outstretched hand is above me, below me, around me, guiding me and helping me. He loves me!

I welcome you, Lord! My heart rejoices in You! You are the God of my salvation. My heart is not troubled, and I will not stumble. He places my feet on the rock. He shows me the way. My lamp shines brightly for Him, because of Him. The enemy will not find me, because I will be with my God! My father will not abandon me.

The wedding feast of the Lamb has come! How my heart rejoices that You would shine Your face upon me, your servant. Forgive me, Lord, as I turn from my sin back to You.

You are my father, and I am your daughter. I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine.

The Real Neat Blog Award

I’ve been nominated by Laura Clark.  Thank you so much, and sorry for the late reply!

The rules:

1) Put the award logo on your blog.

2) Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

3) Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.

4) Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.

5) Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

The questions:

1) You have $1 million and 24 hours to spend it. What do you buy?

I buy a house for my parents and a car for me. With the rest I’ll help as many people as I can.

2) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?

I do have a love affair with France. If excluding every thing that’s wrong with every country and government, I’d either live in France, Greece or just stay in South Africa.

3) Do you prefer to blog on your phone, tablet or computer and why?

I use my phone to check on any emails of my blog, but only really blog on WordPress on my computer. The tumblr app on my ipad is pretty neat, and easy to use.

4) Tell me about your proudest moment.

Not freaking out during my driving test. Yes, everyone gets nervous when getting their liscense, but I not only had the grace of God on my side that day, I think I handled it all pretty well.

5) What job did you want to have when you were a child?

I wanted to be a vet. Then I realized that you couldn’t save every animal, so I then moved on to wanting to study history until school killed that dream. Now I write, because I would never ever wnt to do anything else.

6) Do you find blogging relaxing?

Relaxing is the last word I’d use for it. I do find it exciting, though.

No, still just about writing. Ask me again in a few months?

Five Sentence Fiction

Five sentence fiction prompt – Engulf

Engulf verb: Sweepover (something) so as to surround or cover it compeletely/ powerfully affect (someone); overwhelm.


She was ready for something more than this world was willing to give. She found that he, the boy she loved so dearly, was not the one to give her, her heart’s desire.

Alone and broken she found new light in the face of a beautiful stranger, with kindness and love and sadness in his eyes, who she realised had always been there. He was not so strange after all.

His love swept over her, engulfed her, until she was, not as the world understood it, but in a radically new way, completely complete in his love.
