Friday Random Five 7 cherries vineyard

Friday Random Five + Ze Queen Giveaway {closed}

Here are the Randoms for Last Week…

  1. 1. Spiritually

I have a mentor who I meet on a regular basis, but this last meeting was a little different as after our fellowship, I felt quite challenged. It got me thinking, Most of the times I get to feed my Spirit and walk out feeling refreshed but this time,  I got a slap on my face.

There are so many resources God has made available to us, from the bible to the Sunday teachings and Bible studies we attend and yet we become too casual with these resources.

I realized that there were some resources I was meant to have absorbed and practiced a long time ago but I set an excuse of not having time to listen to them, yet spent free times watching YouTube videos and deep within I know very well the resources  are meant to help me in my growth because Sunday service is not enough.

About me

 It reminded me of Exodus 12: 10-11Do not leave any of it till morning; if some is left till morning, you must burn it. 11This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the Lord’s Passover. 

To me, this food is that Spiritual food, if we like it or not, we have to eat it and in haste since there is no time left to be casual.  Just like a small child who is being forced to eat, they don’t understand why they are being forced, but the parents know very well it is for their ultimate growth.  So I guess if we want to grow spiritually, we should start “eating” the resources that are made available to us and in haste.

2. Off Duty

I had taken a one-week short leave last week to attend to some matters. I took advantage of that leave to revive my love for cooking  I am passionate all things food, yes! And I love trying out new recipes, well let’s just say that with the right ingredients and time, the outcomes are always worth drooling over.

I also made time to visit my niece and nephew, these two are hilarious! From observing them I learnt a lot. For example, I didn’t know that the first stanza of the National Anthem had a “mwizi” in it hahaha !!and that you can actually sing yourself to sleep, 😉 I simply love children.

3. Learning

Truth be told I can’t even call myself an amateur when it comes to applying makeup!  I am completely zero when it comes to the right makeup. On most days I rarely apply any makeup, so if you see me on the streets and I look different don’t be shocked 🙂 I usually just  make my brows(which I was being taught by Jane Maina  that I have been doing all the wrong stuff :-)) that was a few days ago, spending time with Jane and observing how she seamlessly does her work has taught me a few tips on applying makeup, which I will share when I am confident enough 😉

    I love the random five,especially on spirituality,”when the Isralites are told to eat in haste” for me its like there is no time,and so the little time you get to share and receive the word of God you’ve got to do it,Ecclesiastes 9:10Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor leaves me with achallenge-what have I done as a christian?Is there still a hunger and a thurst for Gods word in me?Am I still serving God with the same fire that I had when I first knew him?

    Beauty to me is more than physical appearance.True beauty is one that flows from inside your heart and spreads outwards .Its all in vain to have a beautiful physique but have an disdainful heart.

    As for me Emmah Owoko, i see beauty as inner confidence,self love that radiates and touches the world in such deep ways that even the eyes can’t see.It makes everything seem bright,captures the heart and inspires.You know that old saying beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder?Well yes,something that can only be felt,thats beauty in its true form.

    Beauty has nothing to do with looks. It has everything to do with who you are as a person. It should be felt from inside and seen from outside, the beauty that gives you confidence as you walk by and peoples remark on you will just be an add on and not a confirmation to you of how beautiful you are. Beauty is soul food

    I also have a passion when it comes to food, so I applaud you on that department. Learning how to do your makeup is a process but you will get there with time. Thanks for sharing!
