So I am writing this blog to invite all pre post in the middle wherever you may find yourself MEN a PAUSAL women! Let's start a 2.30am Women's Club. Those of you in this stage of life will know what I am referring to, no matter how late or how early you go to bed you will find yourself awake at this ungodly hour. If like myself over the last few days that has been due to a horrid female problem!!!! So after I have bathed at 2am made some tea I sit in the silence of my lounge trying desperately not to make a noise. However I find myself wanting to do things that almost cannot be done quietly. I might find my hand at baking but this is precarious because it makes noise especially if one has butter fingers. You do not want to alarm the household with banging pots, although you will find none of them complain when waking up to hot homemade treats.

So I was told by a lady in my Thursday prayer group to go and read this. It is courtesy of www.hannahscupboard.com/character-deborah.html I found it an interesting read perhaps my dream of a future in politics is not just a pipe dream. Maybe we will still see the establishment of the M.A.D. Party. Watch this space!

What does it mean to say we have a hope and a faith? Is it the absence of problems walking in perfect health always having everything we need? What happens when life throws you a curve ball when you find yourself facing possible disease or you lose someone you love dearly, does it mean that you have sinned done something wrong? Is God punishing you for sin, is there unforgiveness in your life unconfessed sin? I don't believe so. When we believe in the resurrection. in life eternal then when problems like cancer, death and other overwhelming situations face us in life we have a Hope, an Anchor, a Saviour. a friend that we can turn to. If we walk closely with Jesus and bad things happen to us it does not always mean that you have unresolved sin sometimes life just happens. We are not living in the new heaven and the new earth, we are living in a fallen world one that has problems and when life gives you lemons I believe you need to make lemonade. And not sugar free lemonade the kind that Tee makes with a small bag of sugar and tastes delicious. The bible says rejoice always. In all things give thanks. If the fig tree does not blossom and the vine bears no fruit still I will praise Him.(Habbakuk 3v 17) Those scriptures are a clear indication that trouble and hard times will come but even in that God does not change and He is worthy of our praise. One of my favourite psalms Psalm 57 David finds himself in difficult times but he chooses to exalt God. Life is a choice, CHOOSE LIFE!

I love break times at our school. I love watching the children playing, laughing, eating forming relationships. I moved my desk so that I could see them from my window as I work. I love hearing their laughter. The smiles on their faces as they eat the meal provided for them. For some of them it is their only meal of the day. The passion of our boys as they chase after a soccer ball. The noise of the girls as they play a skipping game. I was walking to the staffroom the other day and the girls were playing this skipping game. I stopped for a second to capture this on video and was transported back in time to my own childhood. I remembered playing with the elastic around our ankles, drawing with chalk as we played hopscotch in the streets.
