I don’t trust hotel wake-up calls. Whether you will actually receive one when you ask seems to depend on the state of mind of the person entering your request. If he’s just broken up with his girlfriend, for example, and her name happens to be Sheila, I’m either getting a call in the middle of the night or none at all. So I set my own alarm on my phone. I actually set two. The first is when it would be good to get up, and the second is when I’d jolly well better get up.
I’m just not a morning person, so I like to ease into a day slowly.
I used to crawl out of bed, check that our son was up and in the shower, turn on the television to the morning news, and make myself a cup of coffee.
It’s not a bad way to start the day, but I’ve found a much better way.
I realized that if the first thing I pay attention to is what’s happening in our world, those images and words impact my view of the rest of the day. But if the Word of God is the first thing I give my heart and mind to, I see everything as under the control of my all-good, all-powerful, and all-loving heavenly Father. It’s hardly surprising that this new start to my day has had a huge impact on my life.
The moment I awake, I say Psalm 143:8 (NIV) to myself—or, if [my husband] Barry is already awake, I say it out loud. I repeat the verse several times. It’s become a great way to start a day: Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, My love will fall and fail, but God’s love never will.
for I have placed my trust in you. The psalmist is very intentional here: trusting God is an act of the will.
Show me the way I should go, I pray, “Show me, Father, which way I should go today.”
for to you I entrust my life. I say, “My life is Yours, Lord, and I trust You with everything.”
Then I pray these simple words: “Good morning, Lord! I don’t know where You are going today, but wherever You’re going, I’m comin’ with You!”
A good way to start the day every single day is to declare the Word of God and thank Him for it.

Man divorces wife on honeymoon after seeing her first time without make-up
A woman from Mpumalanga has been divorced by her husband on their honeymoon just a few days after their wedding.
The bridegroom dumped the woman after he saw her with no make-up for the first time according to a psychologist who counselled the unidentified woman.
The 40-year-old groom divorced his 35-year-old bride, said the doctor, because the husband believed she did not look as pretty as before the wedding and accused her of deceiving him by using so many cosmetics, including fake eyelashes.
Dr Molapo, consultant psychologist, said that his clinic received a request from the woman to help her overcome her psychological suffering after her divorce
Reports are that the groom took his bride to Richards Bay for their honeymoon where they had a swim but the outing turned tragic when her face became wet and her makeup reportedly washed away.
The groom said he could barely recognise his wife after the make-up was …
A child talks, then thinks about what he had just said and lastly reasons about his words and its effects.
Thinking is to direct one's mind towards someone or something; use one's mind actively to form connected ideas or to have a specified opinion of something or someone. Reasoning on the other hand is the action of thinking about something in a logical, sensible way. Reasoning is a bit deeper than thinking.
Children hardly think deeply about issues before they verbalise what they have in their mind. They only reason deeply once in a while. My definition of a child has nothing to do with biological age, some people are childish grandfathers, while we have adult minded toddlers.
Every word and action should be subjected to logical reasoning before they are spoken or taken. One must be sure that there is coherence and logic in an argument before one engages in it. To speak, then retract and claim it was a slip of tongue is nothing short of childishness. Af…
