The Power of Prayer

It is amazing how life can really take over and sometimes you really lose yourself.

It is amazing how sometimes you take a look in the mirror and you wonder, "Who am I?"

It is amazing how the demands of life forces you to forget your own dreams and goals and put other things ahead.

I love my children but they do demand most of my time.

I love my husband but sometimes I find myself feeling very alone.

I love my job but sometimes I do wish I had a few days to myself.

I know many of you have felt the same way and struggle to keep your head afloat in the Sea of Demands. I sometimes find myself swallowing and sinking into this depression and feeling sorry for myself, but when this happens I turn to one thing prayer.

It is amazing how prayer can feed the soul and lift your spirit. Prayer can make things feel lighter and give you hope. Prayer was exactly what I needed to feel better about myself.

It was and is prayer that is getting me through tough times. They do not give you answers, but they give you the strength to hold on.

I believe in prayer... it is what saves me sometimes.

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.

This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
