How to clean your microwave easily:
Heating water in a bowl for 2-3 minutes creates steam which softens all the particles on the inside of the microwave.Now you can easily wipe off stains without scrubbing on and on.

How to Keep your handbag organized:
This was an awesome tip that I learnt from Becky who runs Organizing made easy. Using transparent cosmetic bags to segregate the items in your handbag.A bag for cosmetics,a bag for checkbooks and bills and a bag for miscellaneous.This also makes it easy to change bags without the worry of missing out things.A de-cluttered and organized handbag is truly a joy.

Hope for the not so perfect moms!

Solomon is one of the most common names in history.A king whose wisdom was unparalleled.

History has also heard of Jesus who is the beginning of Christianity and who has taught the world about The Way of Peace and Love.

But I'm not going to tell you about these two great men,what I am going tell you,is about two humble women behind these great men.

I'm going to tell you about Rahab the Harlot(Using a milder term here ) and Bathsheba an adulteress who also led to her innocent husband being killed.

Through the lineage of Rahab was Jesus Christ  born. Bathsheba's son was King Solomon.

Rahab chose to follow god and her whole family was saved from destruction,just because this one woman took a step in faith.

Bathsheba lost her first son born of adultery,yet god chose to make her second son Solomon a great King.He even calls Solomon his son.

Ever wonder why these women,Of all the people 'A Prostitute and An Adulteress'.

Obviously the 'A Prostitute and An Adulteress' is a narrow category where not all would fit in.
Yet we all have our own shortcomings in our own ways!

The good news is,it doesn't matter who we are, doesn't matter what we've done.If we believe and repent there is always hope in God.There is hope for us,our children,our families.What blessed Hope !
