Behind the Lens ๐Ÿ“ธ, Thoughts in a Cup โ˜•

Jeremiah is almost a year!

As the French say: C’est la vie!

Last year, I introduced a new member to our family: Jeremiah

It’s been almost a year, so I thought it was time for a short update.

Jeremiah is healthy, playful, and doing extremely well, although he tends to cling to my Mom. It’s only natural for him to think that’s his mom (too) as she played a major role in nursing him to health when he was a wee kitten. Also, all the felines love him. I mean, look at that handsome face!

On another note, I have so many things that I’ll love to share on the blog, but I can’t seem to find the time as before. I’m also working on a Bible study blog, and it’s been a rocky start in trying to get it off the ground. Hopefully, I’ll get around to doing those things soon. I leave a photo of Jeremiah. He’ll be a year on the 31st be it God’s will.

VERSE OF THE MONTH (May 2021):  

Turn ye now from your evil ways, 
and from your evil doings: 
but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, 
saith the Lord.

Welcome back, Karim Benzema!

After five and a half years of being exiled from the French national team, Karim Benzema is back after coach Didier Deschamps handed him a shock recall. I’m not willing to go into details surrounding Benzema’s absence from Les Bleus for you can find all of that on the internet, but him being back is interesting. Over the years, he has been petty by poking fun of Olivier Giroud causing football fans to take sides, and this childish behavior did not sit well with me.

And some of us have been questioning Benzema’s return:ย Was this actually necessary?ย seeing that we were fine without him all along.ย Will he cause chaos in the dressing room?ย Many Les Bleus fans have ugly, scarred memories of pitch and behind-the-scenes bust-ups. However, I’m a fan of second chances, so I’m giving Mr. F1 the benefit of the doubt.

All there is left to say is welcome back, Benzema. Take this second chance and run with it.

In other football news, I’m thinking of covering the Euro 2020 competition as I did the World Cup in 2018, but I’m not certain how that would fit into my busyish schedule. If I do cover the Euro, it’ll mostly be Les Bleus’ games, but that remains to be seen.

Moments of Inspiration โœ

Ode to Spring ๐ŸŒบ

Spring is here!
Spring is in the air!

Come! Let us run free in the meadow
Where the butterfly kisses flowers hello
and tulips and daffodils greet us with
bright coats of yellow.
Perhaps, we’ll even see a rainbow!

Let us sit with God by the still pond
where the frog croaks its silly song,
and there’s nothing to worry about
as we kiss our worries so long.

To the sticky sweetness of the flowers, senses may succumb,
but being in nature we see glimpses of God, and
His handiwork is never a moment of boredom.
The time of the singing of the birds has come,
so let it be known throughout the land
that there’s no time to be glum.

Spring is in the air!
Spring is here!

This was written sometime last month as I sat down to free write. Well, started, and completed only as recent. I haven’t written stories or poems in a long time and I only recently started to practice again. This piece was inspired by Song of Solomon 2:12-13. It also serves as a reminder to appreciate and listen to nature, don’t just be in it. Listen to the sweet bird songs, smell the sweetness of the flower, and don’t just gaze at the sky, watch the clouds go by.

On another note, I’m not active as I would’ve liked at the moment, but I don’t want to leave for another month or two as I may not return at all. Hopefully, I’ll be back to catching up on your blogs real soon. In the meantime, thanks for taking the time to stop by and read. I utmost appreciate it.

May God’s peace be with you.

Scripture of the Month: Turn from your evil ways

Turn now from your evil ways.

God is not willing that any should perish. He is not distant as we tend to think. Return to Him and He’ll return to you.
