Underweight? Not Anymore!

One of the things people never fail to comment about me: that I’m underweight and thin. Taking concern in every meal, with lots of observations and steps to make a proper meal size, I snuggled in for years. But I stayed at 49-50 kgs for many years.

Live Your Life: Do It Afraid

It’s like playing twister every week.

Taking one day at a time – study, do business, run errands, prep work, chores. Completing my assessment tasks had been a huge challenge. Oh boy, what have I gotten into. Originality, hard work, research, attention to word count, push my limits – read more, study more, work more, drink more water..

The Lord did awesome things for which I did not look. I can’t believe my eyes. I passed my assessment. Seriously, I thought I might have to take 2nd attempt to get through. English, being my second language, Diploma in Screen and Media keeps me busy and takes me places.  

I realized that power, love, and a sound mind makes me who I am meant to be. That makes me a loving wife, joyful mother, doting daughter-in-law, caring daughter, a friend who will hide and seek ha ha… God is my source of power, love and soundness of mental health. Through Lord Jesus Christ alone, I can do well.

When You did awesome things for which we did not look,
You came down,
The mountains shook at Your presence. Isaiah 64:3

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

Thank you Lord for your amazing grace!
