Meditation

18 Apr

I found a saying on which I can meditate. Just repeat this to myself whenever I feel like I need to hear it.

“I declare I will choose faith over fear! I will meditate on what is positive and what is good about my situation. I will use my energy not to worry, but to believe. Fear has no part in my life. I will not dwell on negative, discouraging thoughts. My mind is set on what God says about me. I know His plan for me is success, victory, and abundance. This is my declaration.”

Habari Gani? Umoja!

26 Dec

Umoja means Unity!

Tonight’s principle means to strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, and nation. On this night, the black candle in the center of the kinara is lit. The kinara looks something like this, although there are variations in the base:

On this night, only the black one will be illuminated. Unity is the basis of success, and that is why it is the candle in the center, and the first night. It’s the candle that is always lit first and used to light all of the other candles. Once the candle is lit, you talk about unity and its importance…and that sounds like a perfect excuse to eat, right? Right. Dinner time!
