Unlikely is this

If you know me, you know I have tried to work in Liberia, No. Africa, Congo and So. Africa.  I never thought of Uganda, the Nile or mosquito netting as my “likely.”

 

The photo challenge this week is “Unlikely”

These pictures are all taken at Fort Murchison. A beautiful get-away and great place to enjoy an African Safari.

Cheers for Z !!! #atozchallenge

 

I raise a glass of an elegant bouquet

It’s time to celebrate another great year

meeting excellent people

soujourners

bloggers

interesting folks

we may live in different worlds

but we all agree

that A to Z is the best way to spend the month of April

the zebra says “CHEERS”

 

 

Cross Roads for “X” #atozchallenge

At the crossroads our eyes met

a young boy driving cattle

in a city traffic jam

my jaw drops at the sight

 what world have I been sent back in time to

you reached your hand through the window

no need to fear

you offer meat filled skewers

MacDonalds you are not

but the food cant be faster

A different world passes by

dust kicks up as we move north

to the crossroads of our life

with A to Z at it’s zenith many of you will have come to a crossroads as a blogger. What have you learned from this 30 day adventure?

 

Cross Roads #sundaydevotion

 

Life’s road  uneven

filled with pain

I’ve know the sting

of sin’s dark reign

*

the fork it beckoned

from afar

succumbed to flesh

I see the scars

*

His light it shines

in darkest place

removes the stain

no one can trace

*

I gladly trudge

this burden bear

to heaven’s cross road

my savior’s there!

 

 

“A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it.”

Isaiah 35:8

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

 “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:20

Life’s Road is filled with rocks and uneven spots. Some days we have little strength to crawl. Though this life is tough, Jesus promises that He is there to walk over the toughest terrain  (carrying us if need be).

Sharing with God Interest

 

wire #children #atozchallange

man size stripes

children forced to bare

who will make this right

cold hard becomes the stare

***

wire cuts clean through

 innocence dies

sign our own doom

none believe the lies

*

children pay the price

no money can repay

history must think twice

there is a judgement day

My Focus this month is children. The Acholi people (and presently the So. Sudanese) hold basins of tears for children lost because of military despots. South Sudan has displace over 1 million children most are now orphaned. We try to help but wouldn’t it be easier to stop trying to destroy tomorrow’s hope because of today’s wire thin avarice?

Certainly we have learned very little from the  slaughtering of 1.5 million children in the Holocaust,
