It makes sense to the owner

#TreasuredTruth #294Of366 #RawderKidulaKedaha For a long time I did not understand some paintings: Especially the ones done by great artists, the ones on display being sold at extremely high prices.

Not Even A Storm

#TreasuredTruth #293Of366 #RawderKidulaKedaha God had a message for the people of Nineveh: This one job was given to Jonah.

In Preparation

#TreasuredTruth #304Of366 #RawderKidulaKedaha At the times in my life when I have felt abandoned and alone, I have thought that God was punishing me for the sins I have committed and the bad decisions I have made.

Shoes Off!

#TreasuredTruth #303Of366 #RawderKidulaKedaha In my first years of school, in the village, not everyone had shoes on. It was actually a luxury for the ‘rich’.
