Shows like Beyond 2000 and cartoons like The Jetsons set our minds ablaze with the new and exciting technology that would soon take over our lives.

Unto Us

For most of my life I have always had a great festive experience. I’ve never been one to associate this part of the year with hurt or pain of any kind. Thus far I have to admit I have been tremendously blessed. But of late I have been reading of and encountering experiences in my own life which have been deeply troubling, which for me, is foreign especially during the Christmas period. These scriptures have brought and a sense of peace and comfort during these turbulent times.

A few nights ago, I was disturbed from my sleep… When I opened my eyes, I found that complete darkness greeted me. Naturally I looked towards our bedroom window and was surprised that there was just a teeny tiny bit of light shining through the curtains. It then occurred to me there was a power failure and the entire neighbourhood had no lights on, at that point I was so thankful for that tiny bit of light which came into the room…
