For He knows how weak we are; He remembers we are only dust.” (Psalm 103:13-14, NLT) Journal Entry “Verse 13 makes the assumption that earthly fathers are compassionate (which they should be), and highlights that God as a […]

“I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father.” They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If […]

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will […]

Although I’m an avid consumer of podcasts, when I’m not seeking enrichment, one of my guilty pleasures is ‘Paternity Court.’ It just never ceases to amaze me! One thing I’ve noticed in the comments section is the tendency to attribute the behaviour of the plaintiff or defendant to their parents. For example, it’s her “mother’s […]

As a teacher, one of the things I detest is an insincere apology. A flippant ‘I’m sorry’ means nothing if a student promptly returns to the offending behaviour. However, the most frustrating thing is knowing that in their ‘hierarchy of respect’, I simply don’t rank high enough. They wouldn’t dare act in the same way […]

On paper I’m a British citizen and I’ve lived in the UK for most of my life. However, I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve been asked where I’m ‘really’ from. Although I’m Rwandan by heritage, my inability to speak the language (fluently), and the fact I’ve never been there, makes me feel […]
