'Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”'

John 8:12
Edited in an app with Daryl Feril

Hi and welcome to my vault :), hope you had a good weekend. It is always a pleasure that you stopped by: I love to just sit and listen and watch.

No one likes the dark, I have come to understand as children of God we grow up hating the dark. We want to be in the light. As I lift my eyes to the Lord the Maker of Heaven and Earth. He will guide my footsteps for the Lord my God is front as I walk in behind His footsteps. Yes, the Lord has spoken and dear friends we must follow

There is no condemnation in the light 
There is no sin in the light 
There is forgiveness and love
There is compassion

For the Lord our God comes down to our level
To understand what we go through
  
I smile because He smile first 
I Love because He loved first
So let us come to the Lord, for He cares. 

The vault beckons to understand the nutrients we need, come let us explore Brassica. It is always nice to know why natural food is better. Why should we eat it? What are the consequences of not having the right nutrients? All foods play an important part in the body. So many varieties, so if you don’t like one try another of the same group to ensure you get your vitamins and minerals always.

It is essential for non-vegetarians, vegetarians and vegans to eat a wide variety of foods to ensure an adequate intake of important nutrients are taken. 

A food can be rich in nutrients, but how many of them will actually make it to the bloodstream? 

It is important to boost them by substance and avoid substances that impairs the process

FUN FACTS: 

IRON: Eating a Vitamin C-rich foods along with Iron-rich foods will greatly improve the absorption of Iron. 

Limit intake of tea/coffee as this impairs the absorption process.

Men require 10mg and women 15 to 18mg per day

Green Vegetables: Also adding a little fat or oil to green vegetables helps the body absorb more of the fat-soluble Vitamins A, D, E, and K

Carefully planning a diet will ensure the correct intake of nutrients.

Brassica is a genus plants of the cabbage and mustard family:

They are diverse and also united by their nutritional genius. 

Offering an amazing combination of healthy Vitamins, Minerals and Phytonutrients.

They include: broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, choy sum, rutabaga, turnip, brussels sprouts, spring greens, kale, and some seeds used in the production of canola oil and mustard.

Low in starch and sugar but rich in other nutrients especially vitamins

Also packed with phytochemicals – have great antioxidant taught to benefit health

Their distinctive taste and to some an off putting smell are mostly linked to their high levels of sulphur containing compounds that forms part of a chemical defence system. 

The flowers, seeds, stalks and tender leaves can be eaten raw or cooked. Almost all parts of some of the species have been developed for food that includes the roots (like turnip), stems (like kohlrabi, kale), leaves (like cabbage, kale), flowers (like cauliflower, broccoli), buds (brussels sprouts, cabbage), and seeds (many, including mustard seed, and oil-producing rapeseed)

They are also sometimes grown for ornament using the white or purple foliage or flowerheads.

Brassica vegetables provide a high amounts of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Zinc, Manganese, and soluble fibre, and contain glucosinolates

Boiling substantial reduces levels of glucosinolates, while other cooking methods such as steaming, microwaving and stir frying have no significant effect on the glucosinolates level

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

It is October and I want you to know that the Lord loves you and He is our shield and exceedingly great reward.

What more can a girl ask for?


Welcome to the vault, I have come to know that it is good to pause and give God glory and not think too much of the things around but just love on Jesus and love on God. 

I just want to pause and give God praise and thanks for a new month. Lots of love to you for stepping into my vault. Thank you and may the Lord bless and keep you.

Arise and shine 
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

What a mighty God we serve
For His words are Yes in Christ Jesus and Amen is us
Lift up your eyes to the heavens and declare the glory of the Lord

Look around you and see the beauty of creation 
Look not only with your eyes but with your heart
Look and let the Lord permeates into the heart to bring the light wherever you go

I am just so glad that kingdom of God is not cunningly devised
 
I do not need to be clean to enter 
I do not need to be rich to enter 
I do not need to be famous to enter

But however I do need to have the wedding garment on
I need my heart right with the Lord 
For many are called but few are chosen

Lord I commit my heart to You 
For You are the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac
And the God of Jacob
You are the God of the living and not the dead
For as long as I am alive I will worship You

Oh give thanks to the Lord for He is good 
Praise the Lord
Praise Him for His mighty acts
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!

It always good to pause and look around and give glory to the Lord 
Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
He is worthy of the attention 
He is worthy of it

Without Him, I don’t have any treasure
Did you know that? We wouldn’t have any treasure
I wouldn’t even know who God is 
Nor have the connection to Him
And would certainly not have the Holy Spirit to guide me
I would be wondering the desert aimless 

But the Lord and Saviour of Jesus Christ 
The Father of all creation taught we are worthy of saving 
That is good news and very much Joy to the heart
So, let everything that has breath praise the Lord 
Praise the Lord!
Praise the King of kings!
Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me. 

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

Hi and welcome to my vault :), hope you had a good weekend. It is always a pleasure that you stopped by: I love to just sit and listen and watch.

I love to see growth. 
When I plant it is so amazing to see them grow into what they are meant to be. 
Think of how God feels and sees us when we grow into what He has made us to be. 
We are all His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works

Just like I don’t see the root but just the end product 
God sees the root and knows how it will grow and shape 
He also knows that weeds grows alongside
Guess what? Our root and foundation are stronger than the weeds
Be bless and know that God loves you so much 
Jesus reigns overall 
It is so great to see my sunflower grow from a baby


I was standing in the vault and this is what caught my attention. We eat a lot of different foods, and it is good to know a little about them: I like potatoes but in the UK they are not vegetable, they are class as starchy foods

FUN FACTS: The Potato Became the First Vegetable Grown in Space with Help from Wisconsin

Starchy foods: Potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and other starchy carbohydrate:

One third of the food we eat each day should be bread, rice, pasta, potatoes and other starchy foods.

Although they can be rather tasteless and bland they are a good source of energy and the main source of a range of essential nutrients including fibre, protein, Calcium, Iron and Vitamins B.

Potatoes:

They are not considered as one of your five portions of fruits and vegetables in the UK

They were first grown as food crops in South America more than 7000 years ago and can be found throughout America, from Canada to Southern Chile.

It was introduced to Europe from America in the second half of the 16 century by the Spanish.

Today they are staple food in many parts of the world and an integral part of much of the world’s food supply.

Also known for its content of being high in starch and a large proportion of this is in the amylopectin which is easy to digest. Therefore potatoes have a high Glycaemic Index (GI)

GI is a measure of how quickly a carbohydrate-containing food raises the blood sugar level when that food is eaten by itself.

GI by itself is not a good indicator of whether food is healthy.

Potatoes are also rich in Vitamin C, antioxidants, Vitamin B6 and Potassium. Most of these nutrients and the fibre are the skin. Apart from water, potatoes consist mainly of starch and also contain some fibre, protein and almost no fat.

Potatoes are prepared in many different ways: skin-on or peeled, whole or cut up, with seasonings or without. The only requirement involves cooking to swell the starch granules. 

Different methods of cooking potatoes affect the relative amounts of nutrients which would affect the components by driving off more or less water and also by adding components such as the extra fats during frying. 

When boiled or baked, potatoes have relatively the same nutrients as raw potatoes but significantly different in chips and crisps because it is fried in oil and that makes the potatoes absorb fat and reduce the water content.

They are used in a variety of processed food due to low cost 

Potatoes Starch: Used as binding agent in some ingredients such cakes mixtures, biscuit 

Potatoes are also used to brew alcoholic beverages such as vodka

They are found in a variety of foods and one of the least allergenic foods tested.

Sweet potatoes:

Also originated in South America but now popular in many countries are sweet by nature which is from an enzyme that breaks down their starch into maltose, a sugar that is sweeter than table sugar. They contain a large amount of beta carotene, minerals and plant oestrogens. 

“Beta Carotene is converted to Vitamin A in the body”

Please note that they are nuggets of information!

Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me. 

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂

Night sky – Great Missenden.

Hi and welcome to my vault :), hope you had a good weekend. It is always a pleasure that you stopped by:

May the Lord Bless and keep you. 
May the Lord let His face shine upon you

It is September already and guess what, Christmas is not far off.  Oh dear, well let us not talk about Christmas, I like to talk about it in November. 

Back to today, my weekend, well I should say Saturday I was outside London. The Great Missenden, the country side and when it is dark it is dark. 

It was nice to meet up with my friends and just relax and we had some pizza. I had an aubergine pizza. It was very delicious the first time and it was great. The inventions of combinations on the pizza is great. I love to eat something that I have not eaten or seen before. That is the fun of it, it gets my taste buds going.

I praise God that I don’t have any allergy to anything that would be problematic

I had a few dances with the girls and it was just relaxing. I do love to dance it is so freeing and I can’t explain but dancing is good for the soul and better yet for the Lord is exhilarating 

On Sunday, I had it in my head that I am going to relax again and watch a movie.

Then a friend called me, and wanted a chat. So I went for a walk and we chatted and I got to pray and encourage her. She needed someone to talk to, she wanted someone to listen. 

The Lord’s work is never dull or boring and we always have something to do. Be it a smile or listening ear. 

Being a leader has taught me so much, I never thought I would be one or even have the ability or capability of it.  God thought differently and He is always surprising me and so I get close to Him and adore Him.

I do love the Lord my God, for there is no one like Him. 

I am always encouraged when I sit and listen and also blessed to hear the testimonies of others and be part of the bigger story of God. 

Sitting in the park, encouraged me:

So I looked around and thought about TIME 

What is time?

Time in physics is defined by its measurement – what a clock reads. 

As I reflect and ponder 

Jesus search my heart, test me and see if there is any weeds to uproot from the fruits that grows show me so I can bear fruit in Your name

To everything there is a season
A time to be born
And a time to die

A time to plant 
And a time to pluck what is planted

He has made everything beautiful in it’s time
He has also made eternity in our hearts
So no one can find out the work that He does
From beginning to end

Nothing can be added or taken away
We can run but we cannot hide

Time waits for no man
Time is a currency that we all seem to have 
But not enough

Jonah ran, well he taught he was running but that was his time to run
When God is ready He sends the waves, the storms 
To get our attention 
To keep us awake 
To let us know He is not far off

As Jonah was swallowed by the fish 
The season of rest started 
A time to reflect 
A time to see the errors of his ways 
A time to see who God is 

In the season of rest and reflection 
We see the beautiful characteristics of God
For He has mercy not just on the gentiles 
But also on His rebellious prophet
For God is full of compassion
He cares for all His people

A time of rest is a time to Praise and worship 
The Father giving glory to His son
There will be season of New 
As it is said in Revelation
The words that melts the hearts of all


'And I heard a thunderous voice from the throne, saying: 
“Look! God’s tabernacle is with human beings. 
And from now on he will tabernacle with them as their God. 
Now God himself will have his home with them— 
‘God-with-them’ will be their God! 
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes and eliminate death entirely. 
No one will mourn or weep any longer. 
The pain of wounds will no longer exist, for the old order has ceased.”'

Revelation 21:3-4TPT

A time to fight and 
A time to know when not to 
A time to leave it in the hands of God 
A time to Praise and worship Him

A season of true worship and praise
Glory to God the Almighty 
The light that shines brighter 
The light that walks with all men
The King of Kings and Lord of Lords

London-South Bank

Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I thank the Lord God, that He has given us an opportunity to be a blessing. I pray that we will never be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord. That we will rejoice in Him always and give thanks in all things, in the name of Jesus.

Welcome to my vault, hope you had a good weekend. My weekend from Friday to Sunday, I came into the house to sleep.

We are sons and daughters of God and not slaves. One of the spiritual truths to know in our hearts. He is the God of our Salvation, who redeems and heals us from all unrighteousness.

If there is one thing I love is the word that became flesh and dwell among us to show us what it means to love, to walk Holy and blameless in the presence of God. So all can come and know Him by our examples.

God’s purpose is not for His children to perish or walk in fear.
God will always do what He plans
God appointed Christ to choose us

Which is like a bridegroom coming out of His Chamber
And rejoices like a strong man run its race

Sunday service was knowing that God is a God of Healing and so our service was on Faith for Healing. The one I pray to have always-Healing. To listen to God and not doubt

The mystery of God is made known to all of us:

'In him we have redemption through his blood, 
the forgiveness of sins, 
in accordance with the riches of God’s grace '

Ephesians 1:7 NIV

God is indeed the God of healing
The Almighty God who saves

The Lord sets the table  

In Christ Jesus we are all invited
To feast with the Lord
More room in the table for all

But we have to be dressed for it

We have to believe and have faith as small as a mustard seed
To a move a mountain we do not need a mountain of faith
For the God we serve is bigger than the mountain
He needs a seed, the smallest seed will do

So prayed and allowed the Holy Spirit to come and do what He does best. And after church, I walked with a friend and listened and prayed. 

I must admit I love to walk with people. It is one of the things that I took from the lockdown. We were not allowed to meet in the building so we met outside, who needed a building to pray. 

God is not confined to a building and we also get to see His marvelous works.

Saturday was spent in Swanley Park, with another friend and her daughter in the park. Single mum, I don’t know how they do it but they are heroes. 

Did Pedalo, for the first time and it was hard work but loved it.

I thank the Lord God
That He loves everyone 
He create a space to serve Him 
He gives us all an opportunity to be a blessing 

I must admit I have missed seeing so many people: 

So Friday, I went for a walk again with another friend at night and forgot how alive London is at night. 

It has been so long since I saw so many people in the street so imagine my shock on Friday night walking down the River Thames.

Every Summer there is a festival, live band music and people just sitting and having some sort of picnic. 

As we walked along the river talking and reminding ourselves of the gifts of God. Giving testimonies and talking about TRUST. Trusting in God. And we did over a 30K walk, and well deserved street food at night.

It just reminds of the relationship we are meant to have on earth as Christ followers
For if we died with Him
We shall also live with Him
If we endure,
We shall reign with Him
If we deny Him
He also will deny us
If we are faithless 
He remains faithful
He cannot deny Himself

As Paul wrote to Timothy

It is good to know that 
He is the same yesterday, today and forever!
 
Thanks for reading my journal of walking in the weekend
Friday night in London, Summer Festival, Live Band

Today I have a nugget to share about EGGS: Please not that this is information only!

In the United Kingdom the government uses the Eatwell Plate Guide to show pictorially the different types of food we need to eat to achieve a well-balanced and healthy diet.

Eggs – have had lots of bad press 

The reputation in recent years is NOT great BUT most concerns are unfounded

For instance egg yolk is high in cholesterol, but contrary to what scientists once thought, dietary cholesterol does not greatly affect blood cholesterol levels. 

They can be considered to be the perfect food, handy and self-contained packages of healthy protein. Guess what, they are rich in almost every desirable nutrient.

Egg whites: contains 90 percent of the egg’s water and half of it’s protein. Rich in protein but low in fat and cholesterol and extremely useful for cooking. The egg white is very rich in Ovalbumin, the main protein.

Egg Yolk: one third of the entire egg is the Yolk, which contains half of the egg’s overall protein, three-quarters of the calories and all the Iron, thiamine (Vitamin B1), fat, cholesterol, and Vitamins A, D, E and K. In Fact, eggs are one of the few food sources of Vitamin D. It also contains essential fatty acids. 

Information for vegetarian nutrients sources: Protein: milk, cheese, yoghurts, eggs, beans, lentils, peas, nuts, seeds: Eat a mix of plant protein over the day for a good intake of essential amino acids. A good daily intake is 1g/kg body weight

B12: dairy products, eggs, fortified foods: Include B12 fortified foods as part of the daily diet. The RNI for this vitamin is 1.5 micrograms

In the UK if you are vegan, then check out the NHS for vegan diet

The beauty about eggs is they are versatile and cooked in different ways, even baking.

Nugget: the quality of the egg diminishes over time, partly because the shell is highly porous, allowing moisture to escape. The white becomes runnier and the membrane around the yolk weaker as the egg dehydrates and becomes alkaline. Poached eggs and fried eggs are best when the eggs are fresh. 

Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me. 

Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂
