Yesterday was a great Sunday. I worshipped with my darling dad at my family’s Anglican Church. Sundays are my absolute best days as it is filled with family bonding as well as all the beautiful things that comes with being part of a family. I am so grateful to have my parents strong and still with me, and Sunday is our special day to worship together, take photos and eat the traditional “Sunday rice”.

In recent times, my mom has been quite absent from our Sunday posts. She’s currently in the UK and it is just my dad and I doing our Sunday routine without her. I truly can’t wait for her to be back and add her usual colourful presence to our Sunday photos.

What I Wore

It was our professional harvest yesterday in church. I wore a yellow dress by Gozel Green and teamed it with a sky blue shirt, a fascinator and cream heels. I have attached a few photos below and I also shared a few words from the sermon! Keep clicking.

 

The Sermon

It was our professional harvest and the sermon was really about acknowledging the gifts the Lord has blessed us with and celebrating and being thankful for it. As well as giving back as much as you can. Some days, we are so bugged down by the things we want or the things not going right that we tend to forget how blessed and how equipped we are with amazing talent.Or how much we’ve achieved! I am often so guilty of this!

In church, I took a bit of a step backwards and took stock of how amazing the Lord is and has always  being to me. It really is up to me to choose to focus on all the great stuff! He is an awesome God and worthy to be praised, appreciated and glorified. I mean, can I start by thanking him for even the gift of putting words to “paper” and expressing my feelings succinctly (I hope). Or the joy of boldly living my life and pushing bravely for my dreams and what I believe in.God is indeed awesome! God has lifted us up and forgiven us our sins. Mercy and Grace.

Ecclesiastes 9:11 King James Version (KJV)

11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

 

All we have achieved is not just a result of our handwork, but largely by God’s grace. Look at where and what you have attained, the opportunities you have gotten and be thankful. Show the Lord that you are thankful. For some things may not be so rosy, don’t worry.God will do the right thing. He has great plans for us. Trust in him. Envy and greed may make us dissatisfied, comparing ourselves to other people or wanting so much more. It is best to trust in the Lord and focus on your own path and also be content. He is there for you and is watching out keenly.

This week, what will you do to show you appreciate all the Lord has done and is still doing in your life? Will you pass it on via your associations? Showing love to every person you come across with all your heart? Being kind to the less privileged or someone working under you. Going the extra mile.

This week, I shall do my best to show my gratitude!!.. and treat people really specially!

I can’t wait!

Have an awesome week all!
