Hi guys ! I wanna talk to you about my recent t-shirt design for Ben Lim Ministries! This ministry is soooo special in my heart . They’re the ones that God used to set my soul on fire 🔥. ( I literally got baptized in the Holy Spirit Fire for a week after encountering this ministry. ) So when they approached me for a t-shirt design , I immediately knew I wanted to make the shirt as fiery as possible . Pastor Ben Himself reminds me of a Lion. I told him, we are supposed to be meek and submissive like a lamb, and firey , courageous , regal, and authoritative like a lion . I wanted the lion to be roaring , because I envision Pastor Ben and his ministry to be calling out the nations. Because he is a prophet to the nations, and his ministry has global reach already . I just feel so grateful that God allowed me to cross paths with a ministry that has a vision that is parallel to mine and I believe in so much . I cannot wait to see how high God’s gonna catapult this ministry for HIM, and for #BLM to set the world on fire . 🔥

Riflessi a Mantova
Last week when we were having dinner, 2 men showed up at our door step
They wanted to meet Ustaz Zain (our host) 🤔
They stepped and sat quietly at the edge of our dining mat, neither touching the food prepared for them 🙌🏽
They exchanged a few words softly, thanked him for his time and made their way quietly out of the house 💨
Naturally, we asked the ustaz about them. 💁🏽♂️ Those 2 men were representatives of a surau (small mosque) overseeing a group of families. They had shown up to make a formal request for meat portions for their families. .
Ustaz Zain had agreed to their request and invited them to collect their share the next day
That brief interaction that lasted no more than 10 minutes taught me more about pride, responsibility and #compassion than the effort spent facilitating the #qurban Orders with @thewidaadproject over the past week for our beneficiaries
I known this seems abstract. Hence, I’m going to make an effort to break it down in my next posts!
Buddy is a complex fellow. •
His Ma said he was in a dark mood when she snapped this pic. Observe the slight tipping of his right ear . . . anyone with even the slightest amount of FEI (feline emotional intelligence) would tell you that this cat is not cool with whatever it is that y’all are doing. He’s in full on grumpy cat mode regardless of how you treat him, coddle him, ignore him. Get back, honkey cat and whatever you do, do not touch him or even think about doing so.
Interesting how a dark mood can occasionally overtake even the sunniest of souls. Like a total eclipse of the sun the lightness and brightness of our usual vibe can be momentarily overshadowed. While a little short term shadow dwelling provides us a chance to chill out, more long term shadow dwelling turns into habit, turns into lifestyle, turns into terminal curmudgeonly crankiness if not checked. That’s the power of a shadow. It has the potential to shift, over time, from visible darkness to a gloominess of mind and soul that isn’t always obvious. Others may not initially be so aware and might altogether miss that subtle, almost imperceptible, Buddy-like tipping of the ear when we’re actually telegraphing the emotion (or rather the lack of any). Dwelling in the shadowland is no bueno for anyone, cat or otherwise. Better to pass through and not to set up shop there. “Yay, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death . . . key word—through. As in keep moving.
We must walk through. To-the-other-side-of-that-valley through. C’mon buddy, step back into the light. Out of the shadows and into the light. One paw at a time until you’re back.
Just some Sunday reflections on an occasionally grumpy cat named Buddy.
Post 27/28 The Whole 9 Yards
As Jujus celebrates its 9th anniversary today, here is my Post 1/28 on the purpose of this series, written now in past tense! .
On 5thAug I kicked off my first series of posts on #entrepreneurshipbyamarjyot . I hope that you enjoyed reading them, as much as I enjoyed reflecting back on my journey, writing about it.
We began with a small exercise! Tried spelling out in our mind the word ENT_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _R without the help of spell check or auto- correct. Struggled? Well, we still don’t get it right in the first go. It’s not without reason that this word in itself is long and complicated. Just as every entrepreneur’s journey is!
My reason for bringing out this series? Each one of us carries that desire to be ‘on my own’. This desire comes in different quantities in different people. People from non-business families are more prone to feel this itch, as for them it’s a largely unexplored territory. To a great extent this desire is fuelled by the perception of freedom with respect to time management, pace of work, work quantum, earnings potential, coupled with aspirations such as being an employer not an employee, becoming the next business tycoon, making to Forbes under 30/40 etc. Lastly, it’s a fad these days. A fancy thing to be called an entrepreneur!
Whatever may be the reason, it is a space where only meritocracy wins! It comes at the back of not only one’s intellect, but also emotional strength, risk taking abilities, manoeuvrability, vision, internal drive, perseverance, etc that are chapters in themselves.
My series aimed to assist those who are pestered by this bug, help them find wisdom in my failures, and shorten the learning curve for them because I paid through my nose to be where I am today!
It’s not easy to write about self. To bare it all, to expose one’s own vulnerabilities/ insecurities, to share one’s strengths/ achievements in a manner that is not immodest. At the same time, I do believe that no matter how illustrious your life has been, if you haven’t spread the knowledge & wisdom that you acquired, it’s a life unfulfilled.
A beautiful gold light silk saree gifted email@example.com especially for this day!
