Last year, this day, I embarked on a 12,000 KM journey, with hope and faith, and in my innocence, not knowing what awaited me. A year later, today, in the same city, I stand at this place, trusting God for the journey ahead.
Forgiving someone who has destroyed us and releasing them, is difficult; but what is more difficult, is living in the state of unforgiveness, where we mentally keep replaying the act of betrayal and hurt - that is painful, that is paralysing, that is devastating.

Reflection at Sherwood Park, May 3, 2018.
The most excruciating pain, is when you've given up your dreams, to live the dreams of a loved one, only to have that person shatter your dreams!
Woke up a bit late this morning, though cold, was happy to see the sun smiling at me. As I was having a cup of coffee and reading my Holy Bible, I was reflecting on the life of David and how he was betrayed by his best friend, Jonathan. I got to reflect on a story that I had come across.
There was man who had gone to visit his aged and ill parents and late into the night, the cops had come over to his parents place and arrested him. Utterly in shock of seeing their son handcuffed and taken in public view, the parents, who do not drive, were frantically calling the bus service trying to get to the jail which was located in another area. Can you imagine what those parents would have gone through emotionally and broken?
Oblivious to facts of his arrest, the next day, sitting in the jail cell, the man had come to know that the person whom he loved the most, the person whom he had given up his dreams for, had set him up and betrayed him.
How can such a betrayer ever be forgiven? How could such a betrayer ever continue life, knowing that because of such a betrayal, an entire family has been ruined and their everyday lives continue to be affected? How?
... MORE TO COME!

Harlot on Valentines Day
By Dolls J
cf chapter 8
For Valentine's day, the harlot had breakfast with her children whilst the husband was at home, then went about her work. She then met her paramour for lunch and he caught her texting other men. In the evening, she took her paramour to the supermarket where she used his body for her sexual pleasure in the parking lot, then bought a cake, and told him to take a cab back home. The text that her paramour had seen earlier on her phone, was the text where she invited her other paramour to come over to her house for Valentines dinner and picked up a bottle of wine. She had claimed that this other paramour, her older friend, was an 'uncle' to her kids - this of course was until she was caught in the act. All this she did while her husband was away, not suspecting the man coming to her house.
On Valentines day, she did not wish her husband, nor did she wish her boyfriend, by wished other men and invited them over. This is Proverbs chapter 5, personified.
Moral of the story: If this harlot did not want a friendship with the innocent man, she could have told him and he would have walked away. He was not interested in her in the first place, with the baggage that she had carried, her history of deception, and the body of a grandmother. She did not need to connive and destroy the life of an innocent man, cause a divide between brothers and grieve the aged parents of the man, who were more than parents to her. She went to several men and spoke and connived against her husband, and did the same against her paramour. The Holy Bible warns about such bad character women in Proverbs chapter 5, "... her ways lead to destruction..."
Dozens of times God uses the word 'harlot' to describe the cheating, betraying and evil.
- And behold, a woman comes to meet him, Dressed as a harlot and cunning of heart. Proverbs 7:10
- To keep you from the evil woman, From the smooth tongue of the adulteress. Proverbs 6:24
Coming up next... A narrative at the organic store where she used the man in the parking lot for her sexual pleasure, right after betraying him.
Wait for January 4th release...
