The Worldview of the Believer

Most Friday and Weekend morning when I am busy completing computer work (making curriculum) or any day when I am cleaning up, I will put on a lesson to listen to while I work. This Friday morning, I chose to listen to Shaykha Nagheba Hayel who tells a beautiful story of Habib Ali Jifri and what our world view as Muslims should be. With these cold winter days in the Northeast, the reminder came at the right time. . . time to stock up our car with gloves, blanket, food, etc. to give out to people on the streets. ♥

Biscuits!

I am starting to feel myself with this gluten-free baking. MashaAllah, I made some really yummy gluten-free biscuits and it was extremely easy.

Between Worlds

I often feel like a tug-a-war is going on in my little world, between what's good for one child and what's good for the other child, between what's good for me and what's good for Humble Dad, between what's good for my dunya (this world) and what's good for my akhira (the next world after death). Driving one child to all his baseball practices conflicts with driving another child to all of her softball practices and it makes me want to just lay down, take a season or two off and keep both children away from doing anything because I am faced with what every mother comes to understand "I can't do it all."

The hope comes, the Mercy is realized, in the knowing that there is a God Who Can and does Do it All, Ya Allah.
