First entry this year, a bit late to say the usual words so I wouldn’t. My year has started off well, I have got a feeling that things are going to turn around for the better this year. I am standing on God’s word from Joel 2:25 – ‘So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you’. I can’t really say all my prayers are been answered already but I have peace of mind, I am more ‘God’ aware. I have decided that I am no longer going to look back, yes 2013 was probably one of the worst years of my life but I am not going to dwell on it anymore.
Have I had challenges this year, what do you think? You can’t be a Christian and expect life to be Honky Dory, it is how you deal with the challenges that matter. For me it is been mainly people trying to make me lose my focus but then that is the enemy for you, I just wish people will realise that been nasty is not cool. The one that really got me was a so called FB friend who posted on my profile telling me exactly what she thought of me. I was like if you don’t like my comments why not scroll on & not post nasty remarks about me, needless I hit back but my sister got in before I did. The long and short of it is that she is no longer a friend. I don’t always agree with people’s FB posts but I don’t comment I just scroll down to the next post or just surf other sites, the world would be a boring place if we all agreed with one another. I like a good debate but I draw a line at rudeness, I can’t stand rude people I avoid them like a plague. I have actually not been on FB for a while now cos I am just fed with all the insults and having to post warnings that I will ‘unfriend anyone who steps out of line, I only comment on friends posts, well if I like it otherwise I am on Twitter, at least there I know no one will attack me!! The only downside is that the characters allowed are limited, oh well can’t have it all I suppose.
On to something more fun, just after Christmas I finally got the hang of knitting at a free workshop. I couldn’t believe I had already been to a paid one but the teacher & the attitude of some of the attendees put me off from going back, so what if I was a slow learner. Last month there was a follow up to the event this time we got to sew squares to create winter blankets for the elderly in the community. It was so rewarding to be able to give back, I met loads of really nice people including a 6 year chatty but very delightful girl, I was so sad to see her go. And last weekend, I walked up to a group of knitters, they were very welcoming, I left knowing how to crotchet, yay!! I know this may not sound that exciting to some of you but my aim is to learn as many as crafts and more jewellery making techniques as possible. Oh, I am also now into baking, my Pinterest folder is beaming, I have already baked cakes for Christmas. I am going to make cupcakes for friends, etc. Looks like 2014 is going to be a busy and rewarding year for me. Hmm, I have idea, how about sharing your interests here, leave a comment. What have you gotten into recently, I am always curious about people’s interests and hobbies, trust me I won’t laugh or say it is weird, why? Because if you enjoy do something, don’t let people’s perceptions stop you, if I had I won’t know how to make Jewellery or even macramé which I actually do on my commuter to and from work in the summer or in the park at weekends.
I suppose this is it for now, a bit too early in the year for any other new.
