It's not (only) up to me!

I feel a bit down today. Why? Because I am impatient. I want my goals and dreams to come true YESTERDAY!

There is a season for everything, Solomon said. A time to sow and a time to reap and a wait inbetween. I am still in the sowing season, working hard to get the idea around to everyone that matters. I have no idea who will have open hearts and wallets and who are merely full of empty promises. God knows that and I trust in Him to send the right people my way.

I refuse to beg. I shall work my ass off to make this dream a reality. It is MY dream. God gave it to me and He made it bigger. I have no doubt at all that He will make it mine.

Not my timing

My theme song for this project is "Nothing is Impossible!" by the PlanetShakers. One thing that I can say, though, is that living by faith is not easy.
And the Bible is full of examples of people who wanted to "help" God and who made a royal mess out of things. So how would I know that I'm not falling into that same trap? I won't. That's the problem. More prayer needed, methinks...

A dollar a day

There aren't many things that are as frustrating as reading in a book how two Americans spent a month on holiday in my country from the money they raised by decluttering! I can't afford half the things they did no matter how frugally I live.

Strawberry liqueur

500g fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and bad bits removed, and cut into pieces.
750 ml vodka or cane spirit
10 whole peppercorns
1 c white sugar

Freeze strawberry bits overnight. It breaks down the cell structure within the fruit.
Put frozen strawberry bits, peppercorns and sugar in a glass jar. Add the bottle of alcohol and mix through.
Leave in a dark, warm place for a weekend, stirring every few hours.
Strain and pour into clean glass bottles. Mature in fridge for about 6 weeks.
