Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

“Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

Living Words | Proclaiming Christ

April 23, 2017 - Author: Bernadette Saddik

The ever-presence of God’s Love in His Gift of Praise

If a picture is worth a thousand words
Then avert your two eyes from me when you demand silence
For countless words erupt with each shuddering gasp

Ergo miss the accompanying timbrel and dance.

If a picture is worth a thousand words
Then aim your soul’s eye beyond now when you demand answers
For countless strains roar from Saviour’s bleeding Gift

Elseways miss the revelatory mighty acts and Breath.

I see so much
I hear too much
I say enough…

Lord above all I pray
let me live these, the loudest Word amidst
the dying cacophony of the world and
the swelling harmonies of the angels…

Christ is risen.

“Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.”
Psalm 150:6 KJV

Review: “It’s in the Little Things” by Gayle Suzanne

January 5, 2014 - Author: Bernadette Saddik

For more information about the book, you can go to Closed the Cover


It’s in the Little Things by Gayle Suzanne is a collection of her own personal stories ranging from the funny, raw (sometimes mature) moments of her life to her heavier, harder times. These accounts are loosely connected by the theme of emotional growth, especially as related to bullying and personal image hardships.

My favorite part of the book was the story of peeling the banana. I would have loved to see more of that perspective. In this memory of her time spent with Meals on Wheels, Suzanne captures perfectly the title of her book, It’s in the Little Things.

Those with similar experiences as Suzanne will find camaraderie flowing from her anecdotes that fill the pages of It’s in the Little Things.


*Note: I was given a copy of the book and asked to give an honest review
