Yes, This Is Our World. ๐Ÿ—บ

Unrest in the city

Here, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.

Isaiah 42:18

O nation, it’s time to turn from your wicked ways!

Give ear to what the Word says.

How many more warnings do you need;

Before you take serious heed?

Until the door shuts in your face?

Until you lose the race?

Until your name, He doesn’t know?

Until the Book is close?

By then, it’ll be too late.

And you won’t be able to glance beyond the gate.

The time is NOW! Wake up!

Open your eyes!

To sin, corruption, and lies

Jesus is coming soon.

Today, Port-of-Spain was busy. There were gunshots, protests, fires, and arrests. The police came out to do their best to avoid a full-on riot that could’ve escalated into looting and more. As I write this, my heart clenches. It aches somewhat terribly for the prodigals and the non-believers that God is waiting to return home. This is no time to make friends with the world; this is the time to prepare to meet our Savior.

Time is at hand. And before things get better – our eventual Home with Christ – it’s going to get worse. The question is, are you ready to give up your life for the One that paid it all for us?ย 

Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.

Isaiah 42:20

Coffee Tuesday! โ˜•

Category is…

Salut! And welcome back to this little space on the internet.ย 

Sometimes, I don’t quite know how to start a post up and this is one of those moments. But today, I want to talk about categories. I am in the process of deleting and renaming some categories, and I am also in the process of introducing new ones. Although I’ve narrowed it down to 8, they may or may not see the light of day.

I sat on these categories for a while, some as far back as 2017. Yeah, I know, I’m a delinquent. I procrastinate. A lot.ย 

Adventures in the Kitchen

Yep, that’s a live feed of me in the kitchen trying to cook. I’m enjoying being in the kitchen lately, so I’ll like to share some of the things I’ve been making or simply enjoy eating.ย 

Arts & Craft

Image result for gif art and craft

It all started in 2017 when I complied the top ten museums I’ll love to visit and my top 10 favorite paintings. Mind you, these posts are still in drafts after all of these years. I recently found some drawings I did when I used to fan girl over stuff and since I’ve been getting the itch to start again – I have to dust off the rust first – I thought this would make a good category.

The Bible in Prophecy

Image result for gif bible

Prophecies straight from the Bible show what has already been established and what is yet to come. Is there an event called the rapture just before the coming of the One True King? What is the 3rd temple? Who/what is the anti-Christ? These are a few topics I’ll like to explore.

Blast from the Pastย

Another category that has been sitting in drafts, withering away since 2017. I had planned to revisit nostalgia through certain TV shows and movies and see if I feel the same way about them. I already have some notes in drafts.

Fairy tale Friday

Image result for gif fairy dust

It all started when I helped a student with a fairy tale thesis and Iโ€™ve been meaning to explore the dark world of fairy tales ever since. That is if this category eventually makes the cut.

Lessons from God

Image result for gif blossoming flowers

This is self-explanatory. God has taught me and has been teaching me so much that I’ll like to share some of the lessons I’ve learned from Him.

Tour Trinidad

Image result for gif trinidad

I’ve been waiting to launch this category for a while and now, the time is here. This is a subcategory for Travel Tuesday in which I’ll show you around my town.ย 

What’s Up Weds

Image result for gif coffee two

Twice a month (or so), we meet in the middle of the week to interact. Weโ€™ll discuss non-personal items such as a favorite treat or what weโ€™re currently reading.

And those are the categories I hope to start working on in the right timing. I’ll have to randomly schedule some of these categories in the future for its only one blog and it’s on its way to becoming congested.ย

โœˆ Travel Tuesday โœˆ, Trinidad & Tobago ๐Ÿ’™

Maracas, Trinidad (part trois): Palms

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.

Psalm 1:3

The shore of Maracas is dotted with palm trees gently swaying or furiously rocking however the wind blows.ย 

โœˆ Travel Tuesday โœˆ, Trinidad & Tobago ๐Ÿ’™

Maracas, Trinidad (part deux): postcardesque!

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

Two of my favorite snapshots from my Maracas trip! I think they’re very postcardesque!ย 

Pretty soon, I’ll post about the entire trip so stay tuned! ๐Ÿ˜€

โœˆ Travel Tuesday โœˆ, Trinidad & Tobago ๐Ÿ’™

Maracas Lookout, Trinidad

Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.

John 1:3

For both locals and visitors, the lookout before heading down the north coast road is a popular stop. The view is magnificent on either side of the lookout. I even managed to capture this beauty…

…it was a late evening and the sun was just right, I assure you that I did not tamper with the photo in any form for God’s splendid creation needs no filter. In a future upcoming Travel Tuesday episode, I’ll share more photos from this trip.

Body scrubs, lotions, and oils by Sadia Cosmetics

The packaging is so beautiful!

A few months ago, a friend of mine gave me a few body scrubs, lotion, and oil samples to try from Sadia Cosmetics. I admit that I was a little hesitant at first for I don’t use body scrubs and I’m a loyal servant to Bath & Body Works products.ย 

But I went on to try the samples and I ended up liking some of them.ย 

My favorite body scrub was theย Almond Biscotti Dead Sea Salt.ย

Dead Sea Salt contains minerals such as magnesium, calcium, zinc, and potassium. It can help the skin in many ways such as enhance hydration, calm allergies and reduces puffy skin. It also helps in the fading of stretch marks. It was not rough on the skin and after I washed it off, my skin felt nice and smooth.ย 

I ended up using the oils (calming and energizing oils) to massage my hands and feet after a hard working day. I’ve never really used oils before and I find it very soothing.ย 

The lotions/body butter comes withย scrumptious scents such as Amaretto Cocoa and Peppermint Candy Cane. They’re longlasting and smells delicious!

I think these products are decent and what’s nicer is that they’re made locally. Thank you again, Sabrina, for providing me with these samples. I’ll definitely be purchasing some items soon.ย

It’s always nice to bump into another Trini on the blogosphere for not many locals here have the time to start up and maintain a blog. I could be wrong, but I haven’t been exactly bumping into Trinis on a regular basis since I started blogging.ย 

This meme blog is dedicated to our local ways and pronouncing things/places such as…
