So, it’s July…

…and it still hasn’t settled in as yet.

We welcomed July with heavy rains last evening, so I thought this scripture was fitting. 

The World Cup wraps this month – the 15th to be precise – and I’ve been loving the atmosphere so far. The euphoria of the greatest event on the planet – it was never you, Carnival – has captured many attention and hearts globally, but please, make sure it doesn’t capture your soul. I’ve read a news article in which two fans took their lives in two separate incidents. One took his life when Argentina lost 3-0 to Croatia and the other when they got knocked out of the tournament by France. 

Bottom line is, this is just football and there is no need for anyone to take his/her life over it. The young men who took their lives were not even Argentinians; they hailed from India. I’ve been supporting France for years now and if they don’t win this WC, it’s not going to be the end of the world for me. It is selfish to take our lives over trivial and meaningless things.

We die for mortal idols, yet, we won’t die for the One who gave His life for us if the chance presented itself. Be careful of who/what you worship for these mortals aren’t gods; they’re flesh and blood just as us.

Challenge for juillet

Again, I won’t be doing any challenges this month. Last month, I said I wanted to complete the tags and challenges I’ve been neglecting for months, but never got around to it. I’ll try to see what I can do this month. 

Blessed juillet to all and keep walking with Jesus.

World Cup madness!

This month is definitely going to be an interesting one. 😁

It’s June and although I’ve already scheduled some posts in advance, I won’t be blogging or checking in much this month. Okay, maybe I’ll check in a little. The World Cup is right around the corner and I am so excited for this tournament already!

This month I plan to follow the WC closely and cheer my teams on. Blogwise, I’ll be cleaning out drafts (you do not want to know how many drafts I’ve saved since then), unfollowing inactive blogs, and probably look for a new theme. Maybe I’ll also post my six-word stories. We’ll see.

Challenge for juin

I won’t be doing any challenges this month. Maybe I’ll talk about football-related things during this month, but I’m not sure as yet. What I want to do, though, is get all the tags and challenges out of drafts and into scheduled posts this month so I’ll definitely do that.

Blessed juin to all and to those who are football fans, all the best to your team during World Cup.
