Catching Up

I have been a little out of the circulation lately. My excuse? Well, work has been really hectic, halloween preparations were underway at the office as the company hosted a Halloween Party for the employee's kids for a Trick or Treat, some lose ends to fix and the on-going renovation of our bedroom....Arrrggghhh! and now I caught the flu again. And I was sooo looking forward to the weekend to clean house. Now I'm stuck in bed and sleeping every chance I get.I guess my body is telling me to keep things slow. I am only forced to listen.

I have a lot of things to catch up on, memes and awards to post. I am thankful that the people who gave them to me are very patient and understanding. So let me start with a very nice e-mail I received last week.

What have we learnt from the story of Noah’s Ark?

Don’t miss the boat
Remember we are on the same boat
We need good planning.
Noah’s ark was built before the heavy rain came.

Stay in good health you’ll still be needed for major venture even if you’re 60.
Don’t be bothered by criticism, focus on what needs to be completed.
Build your future in high places.

For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
Speed is never the most important thing,
snail and the leopard end up on the same boat.

When you feel uptight, relax a little.
Remember, the ark was built by layman,
Titanic was built by specialists.

No matter how bad the weather outside is,
if you walk with GOD,
the rainbow is just ahead of you.

Here are some of my friends footprints:

My good friend Annita has graced me with these two wonderful awards.

I am passing on this award to six women who rocks my world and the blogosphere as well. Here they are in alphabetical order:

Sweet Girl

The creator of this award,Christy of Totally Faboulous says the award is for “bloggers who are fun, cool, and of course Totally Fabulous!” There are many many fabulous blogs created by fabulous people. But for now, here is the list of fellow bloggers that I would love to pass along this award to.


Another award was given to me by my very artistic friend Rajeev .And now I am passing on this award to others. Guys your sites have hatched.


And last but not the least my friend Colin awarded me with this sweet Halloween treat. And now I am passing them on to other sweet people I met.

Firefly Wings
Mad Goad Lady
Sweet Girl

There are so many people who come and go in your life.
Only friends will leave their footprints in your heart.

Thank you all for the awards and Congratulations!

Wonderful post about Noah's Ark, and we should all remember that we are all on the same boat and should therefore help each other out no matter what....for the sake of mankind and our children's future.

Enjoy your day my friend :)

God Bless & hugs to you all

You deserve all the awards my dear friend.

Nice post Lisa,

The story of Noah's Ark inspires me. The lesson is we have to trust God at all times and live by His guidance and wisdom. Many people will criticize you for doing His will but at the end a great reward is waiting...Salvation.

Thanks also for the award Lisa. God bless you always.

Sameera said...

Oh what a sweet thing to say!Take care,have a great week ahead.God Bless...


Hello Sophiagurl!

Hope by the time a new week starts, you're already feeling better.

Like the noah's ark story.

It's a sweet reminder for many of us, unlike titanic, the ark was built by simple ordinary men.

I thought about the missing point between those two, perhaps it was God's presence. One included Him in the whole process while the other relied on themselves (weren't they - titanic people - being boastful?)


and THANK YOU SO MUCH for thinking of me ... it's an honor for me to receive them ^_^

Wishing you GOD'S RAINBOW IN MANY DAYS AHEAD (we all certainly need them ^_^)

God bless you all.
~ Annita.

Hi Lisa,
Congratulations on all of these wonderful awards. I can't think of anyone more deserving. That's why I have tagged you to do a wee little meme concerning Letting Go. It's a simple one. I'll have it posted in just a few minutes.

God Bless,
