He is Always Listening

Exactly one year ago I stood with two friends at OR Tambo Airport on our way to Durban. We happened to stop by the international flights board and I declared after scrolling through the board that I was going to go to Washington DC in 2015. My two friends laughed, I am sure they thought I was crazy, who could blame them, I thought I was crazy I probably was but...God was listening.
Today exactly 1 year from the day I made my crazy declaration I am going to Washington DC. Talk about timing, God decided to make it  a perfect year.

I am encouraged, I feel challenged, I feel brave, brave enough to ask from God with confidence and with expectancy. This year my theme was I Should be Brave. I Want to be Brave. I am going to be Brave.I am going to keep going with this motto for the rest of the year because...being brave pays especially for those who depend on God with  reckless abandon. So I am learning.

I saw this in one shop when I was shopping with a pregnant friend and I knew that one day I would want to have this up on my babe/s bedroom wall. Enough said.

Since then I have had a fascination with Switzerland, with it being one of my top go to places.  Every time someone asks me which is the place I would like to visit the most, I don't hesitate to mention  my sweet sweet Switzerland. Sometime ago my love for Switzerland was intensified by this:

The OHCHR is headquartered in the historic Palais Wilson building in Geneva, Switzerland.

Yes, this is my dream work place. I want to work for - The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). I refuse to give up on this dream one day...

In 2009 I had an opportunity to visit Switzerland but I blew it and I regret it. A friend of mine was getting married in Bern and she invited me for her wedding. I hesitated ... I wish I had not. Next time I get an opportunity to go I will grab the chance because really I have waited much too long for you Switzerland. Maybe now that I have put it out there my dream is closer to coming to pass.... I hope so.  

The Good Changes

Perhaps I am a person of contradictions but here is the thing – I like doing new things but I am not a huge fan of change. I like planning ...
