5 Tips For Great Early Morning Workouts – by Shubham Verma

Here are 5 tips to improve your early morning workouts, along with the benefits of early morning workouts, and a quick 30 minute workout you can do with no equipment.

Why Early Morning Workouts Are Great

Exercise in the morning provides a wide range of benefits that offer physical and mental gratification:
Strength training exercise can boost metabolism for up to 48 hours so doing your workout in the AM is a great way to jumpstart your metabolism. This elevated metabolism will ensure you are burning calories throughout the day.

Exercise also promotes endorphins in the brain, which can elevate your mood and start your day off on a positive note. More so, your sense of accomplishment from knowing you have your workout done before you even start your workday will elevate your mood and keep you from stressing over it later if something unexpected arises. According to research, exercise significantly increases mental capacity and exercising in the A.M. can allow you to harness that increased brainpower.

5 Tips For Better Early Morning Workouts

1. Pre-Plan Your Pre-Workout Meal

If you find that you have more energy eating something before your workout, planning your pre-workout meal the night before can be helpful. Research has shown more calories tend to be burned with some fuel in your body before a workout. However, each individual knows his own body best, so finding out what works best for you is essential.

Eating a small to medium sized meal may provide ample energy for your workout without the bloated feeling that comes with larger meals that can affect performance. A great way to kick start your daily meal plan is to make a shake the night before. A healthy pre-made smoothie is versatile and can provide ample fuel to power you through a workout.

Suggested ingredients:
• Plain Greek yogurt
• Berries
• Chia seeds,
• Whey protein
• Almond Milk

2. Go To Bed Earlier

Human sleep cycles follow a daily cycle called circadian rhythms. Using an alarm clock, establishing meal times, and even routine workout times are all cues that reset our rhythms. People who consistently exercise in the morning teach their body to be most ready for exercise at that time of day.

Go to bed 30-45 minutes earlier so you can stay on your normal sleep schedule. This will ensure the 30-45 minutes it will take you to get your warmup and workout done in the morning won’t come at the expense of adequate rest.

Research also suggests that morning exercise improves sleep so getting into a good routine of an earlier bed time might not be an issue. Exercise in the morning can help to set the body clock for a day of activity and a night of sleep, while exercise at night can potentially push back the sleep part of the sleep-wake cycle. In one recent experiment women who exercised in the morning averaged a 70% better nights sleep versus non exercisers.

3. Set Everything Up The Night Before

Whether its pushup blocks, a jump rope, bands, or your workout attire, make sure everything is laid out before you go to bed so you won’t be scrambling the next morning. This will save you crucial moments and give yourself the peace of mind that you don’t have to rush your workout. Knowing you have made sufficient preparations will ensure a worry free sleep and stress free morning.

Another great option is to create a new playlist the night before or start your workout with a new song you really enjoy and look forward to hearing. This will help you get out of bed in the morning and get those energy levels fired up early in the morning.

4. Perform A Longer Warm-Up

Your body temperature is naturally lower in the morning and the last thing you want to do is open yourself up for injury. When you begin to exercise, your body undergoes a number of changes such as an increased blood flow, increase respiration rate, and an increased amount of oxygen delivered to muscle cells. In order to ensure these bodily changes respond properly you should gradually prepare your body by performing an adequate warm-up.

Benefits of a solid warm-up:

  • Prepares your nervous system for the impending exertion of exercise
  • Heightens your mental acuity
  • Loosens up your joints and muscles for the prevention of injury
  • Allows your heart to gradually adjust to the increased activity, thereby increasing the blood flow and sending the proper amount of oxygen and nutrients to your body’s cells.

Perform at least 5-10 minutes of muscle activation and dynamic flexibility movements to get your blood pumping and mentally prepared for you morning workout.

5. Start With Exercises You Enjoy And Recruit A Partner

You’ll be more likely to get out of bed and into your workout if you perform exercises you enjoy. Whether it’s a brisk run, yoga sessions, or a bike ride, perform a morning workout you appreciate to ensure you will stick to a routine and not come to dread that morning alarm. Recruiting a partner can also help with consistency. A pre-arranged workout time with a partner will force you out of bed and take the option of “going back to sleep” out of the equation completely.

Sample 30-Minute Early Morning Workout

The following workout should take you only 30 minutes and require no equipment. It’s a great option if you are on the road on a business trip, or don’t have time to run to the gym.

Warmup (5-10 minutes)


Warmup 1: 2 set of 15 reps Windmills

Warmup 2: 2 set of 15 reps back bridge

Warmup 3: 2 set of 15 reps pushup planks


Warm up 4: 2- 3 minutes of jump rope

The Liebster Award! So…, What Is it?

The Liebster Award

Hi Dear Bloggers,

So, I received an email from Prerana from the “Inside Travellers Shoes,” where she nominated me for the Liebster Award!

Thank you Prerana! I feel honoured to be nominated by you for this award. It really does feel good to be recognised. Do check out her amazing weblog where she shares her view on life, people, places, travelling and everything in between.

What Is The Liebster Award?

In short, it´s like a chain mail where bloggers nominate fellow bloggers. The Liebster Award provides both new and experienced bloggers with the opportunity of being discovered. In addition, this award aims to support bloggers and connect with the blogger community.

And yes, as you may have guessed, there are rules and challenges included. So, let’s get to it!

Here Are The Rules Of The Liebster Award

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and put a link to their blog on your blog.
  2. Display the award on your blog.
  3. For the Liebster Award 2018, write a small post about what makes you passionate about blogging.
  4. Provide 10 random facts about yourself (optional).
  5. Nominate 5 – 11 blogs.
  6. List these rules in your post.
  7. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post or The Global Aussie.

What Makes Me Passionate About Blogging

We all have a personal life, and that comes with ups and downs, some expected and some unexpected.

When I blog, during my ups, it’s just fun to be a part of the blogging community and to interact with bloggers. It´s also about being able to help other bloggers when they face adversities, which I gain a lot of positive energy from to help me write even more.

However, during my downs, it helps me clear my mind and put things in perspective. Sometimes, I have this thought that something I want to do is right, but a thought is just that – a thought. Once I put it out there, on paper or whatever, it helps put everything into a relatable context and give me even more reason to take actions.

What I´m really passionate about is to positively influence people who find themselves in a tough transition in their lives through content published on this website. I want this website to be our go-to place when we stand face-to-face with adversity – where we openly share the changes we have been through and going through. At the moment, blogging is my preferred tool to make this happen.

10 Random Facts About Me

  1. I don’t like sweets; I prefer something bitter. I think my taste buds just change as I grow older.
  2. I prefer coffee over tea.
  3. I’m a cat person, but I’m allergic to cats. I haven’t always liked cats but my girlfriend made me change my mind.
  4. I’m a bit obsessed with cleanliness. I can’t stand living or working in a place where it’s not clean or organised.
  5. I don’t celebrate my birthday. I just don’t like to have all the attention on me. If it’s just a normal day where friend and family gather, I would be totally fine with it.
  6. I’m the worst drinker you will ever meet. Yes, I’m that typical Chinese who can’t drink.
  7. I think making eye-contact is awkward.
  8. I hate bullying. I was bullied for a few years and I know how shitty that feels.
  9. I don’t like when pictures are taken of me. I don’t like too much attention.
  10. I have a big scar on my left upper arm. Something went wrong when I got a flu shot and my upper arm got infected.

Questions Prepared For Me

  1. How has blogging helped you evolve as a person? It’s similar to what I mentioned above at the “What Makes Me Passionate About Blogging:” It helps me clear my mind and put things in perspective. Sometimes, I have this thought that something I want to do is right, but a thought is just that – a thought. Once I put it out there, on paper or whatever, it helps put everything into a relatable context and give me even more reason to take actions.
  2. What is your fondest memory from childhood? I don’t have a specific fondest memory. It’s more a collection of small things and moments, such as having dinner, running around, playing games at my childhood friend’s place, collecting Pokémon cards, watching cartoons, and so on.
  3. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be? Honestly, I wouldn’t change anything.
  4. If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be? If superpowers are included, then it would be to time travel. The idea of being able to travel through time just excites me.
  5. If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are now living? Why? If you would ask me like five years ago, I would answer to live my life more happily on my own terms and not on my family’s or peers’. Now, I wouldn’t change anything.
  6. What is the greatest accomplishment of your life? That would be the decision I made to live my own life on my own terms, without the opinion from family or peers and be comfortable with it.
  7. What would constitute a “perfect” day for you? I have stepped away from perfectionism, but a great day, however, would be when I can do my morning routine which is to wake up at 7:30 AM and hit the gym for an hour. Afterwards, have a big breakfast, check my emails, and head out to the office by 10 AM.
  8. Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why? No, I don’t. If it’s an important call, I do make an outline about the topics. I feel much more comfortable when I have a spontaneous phone call instead of a rehearsed one. The difference in quality is clear as well.
  9. What do you value most in a friendship? I don’t have a specific word for it. It’s the kind of friendship that lasts through time. There have been times where I haven’t talked or seen my friends for a long time (months), but when we do talk or see each other, we simply pick up where we left off as if time itself stood still. It’s the timeless and unconditional kind of friendship that I value the most. 
  10. For what in your life do you feel most grateful? That my previous start-up failed. It was really eye-opening how much that had pushed me towards my passion for writing and blogging.

The Sunshine Blogger Award

The Sunshine Blogger Award

To my surprise, Glen McKenzie – from the amazing “justabitfurther” weblog about getting outdoor, discovering yourself, and finding inspiration – nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I’m really honoured and thankful to be nominated for this award by Glen.

I shouldn’t be the only one to accept this award, because I get my inspiration from the blogging community – especially my dear readers.

If you are wondering what this all means, the Sunshine Blogger Award is given by bloggers, to other bloggers, who inspire creativity and positivity within the blogging community. It’s a great way to recognise and connect with other bloggers within your niche or the blogging world. Also, it means you spread the word about writers you love with your readers. It’s a win-win for all involved, so let’s spread the sunshine!

Here Are The Rules

  • Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you;
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions;

11 Questions From Glen McKenzie

  1. Why did you get into or what motivated you to start blogging?

In short, my life has gone through some major changes over the years in terms of what I value, what my interests are, what my goals are, who I consider my family and friends, and much more. It’s all a bit ironic. You see, I wasn’t really looking to change myself at all, things just started happening. That’s a nice way to sum up life I suppose.

At the same time, it’s weird: although growing and changing is obviously a good thing, it’s also very confusing because you become a bit of a new person. Unfortunately, people hardly talk about what they are going through and are afraid of it, even though there are so many questions. So, I started to write about my experiences in my blogs, hoping to inspire and change people’s lives for the better.

After giving a lot of thought, I found out that I want to positively influence people who find themselves in a tough transition in their lives through content published on this website. I want this website to be our go-to place when we stand face-to-face with adversity – where we openly share the changes we have been through and going through.

  1. What’s your favourite comfort food?

I have to say homemade congee or also called rice porridge, which is a simple classic Asian breakfast dish. I feel nostalgic every time I eat this.

  1. What does happiness mean to you?

I believe that “sharing” would be the closest to happiness for me. To share what I have with the people close to me and just have fun by living in the moment. Of course, happiness is not a destination. Happiness is one of those things that requires consistent effort, similar to love or success.

  1. What do you do in your spare time (assuming you have any)?

Spend quality time with either family or friends. And sometimes, when I have a bad day, I would lie on the couch and watch movies on Netflix.

  1. What do you love most about blogging?

That would be to put my thoughts on paper. It helps me clear my mind and put things in perspective. Sometimes, I have this gut feeling that something I want to do is right, but a gut feeling is just that – a feeling. Once I put it out there, it helps put everything into a relatable context and give me even more reason to trust my gut instincts and carry on with the plan I felt was right all along.

  1. What is one random fact about yourself?

I’m scared of spiders. Not phobic, just scared.

  1. What is one piece of advice you give other bloggers?

“Stop stopping yourself from doing something great.” We hesitate so much with every single scary, bold, and life-changing decision, it’s becoming a nasty habit. I can’t blame anyone since I was the same, until I learned to take action fast before I talk myself out of it again. So, stop overthinking and start doing.

  1. Favourite flavour of ice cream?

Lemon!

  1. Do your family or friends know about your blog and what do they think of it?

My close friends know what I’m doing, and they are very supportive. With family, it’s a bit difficult. I haven’t told all family members that I’m blogging, especially the older generation who are having a hard time understanding technology. Some are sceptical while others think it’s cool. I personally don’t talk openly about it with family members, but they do sometimes ask me about how my writing is going.

  1. Dogs or cats?

I’m allergic to cats. But I love cats. So, cats.

  1. If you could be any superhero, what power would you have and why?

Time travelling would be so awesome! I’m imagining all the disasters I could prevent, but on the other hand, I would not want to mess with causality.

The Reasons Why One Should Give Up Thinking. WHAT? See? There Goes One Reason. Thinking Gets One In The WHAT? Wagon Down Pat.

Journal—An Ongoing Dialog Between thiaBasilia And Master Yahuwah/Yahushua. …

Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 8:30 am.

Inquiring minds? Forever the question, “What came first? The chicken or the egg?” Who cares?

O my Father! I haven’t got the slightest how to get out of this mood that I am in. To realize one’s deficiencies; one’s inabilities? It’s enough for a bad mood!

What’s the most depressing deficiency that troubles me?

That’s just it! I don’t even know what is it that troubles me, my Father? Perhaps the inability to let go of the insidious self-consciousness always lurking around no matter what I say or do!

No matter how certain I am? I can’t rid myself of the after the fact effect. I can’t get rid of that ‘humanly perfect’ concept. I can’t get rid of that insidious fear of repercussion.

Am I alone in this train of thought?

Perhaps that’s the human trend that humans so cleverly hide. Perhaps I’m opening a can of worms. Those hidden worms eating us up unaware.

Perhaps it’s You, my Father, the One opening that can of squirmy varmints eating me up unaware. Hum! Now I’m getting hot in the finding game, am I not, my Father?

O thiaBasilia—O Child Of My Heart? Indeed! I have separated you to cleanse you with the experience of My written words. For what purpose? That you might be set-apart and faultless. That you might be in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things at My return.

Father? The Organized Church troubles me.

O my Beloved Father, You compel me to look around all the evil going on. I look around. I see the Organized Church as the greatest stumbling block for a closer relationship with You.

Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 5:28 am.

What now, O my Father? Your plan of restoration consumes my being.

Your Presence within my being compels me in the Oneness with Your Being. Sunning myself on the roof I see luscious gardens. I see happy faces taking care of those garden. I hear sweet loving songs.

The disgusting clutter in the present roofs? The screeching noise that goes by the name of music now? The crying babies. The disturbing angry voices? All gone!

Even now while we are still breathing the polluted air on these earthly grounds?

Even now Your plan of restoration is in effect. You have dried my tears away. You have restored me. In Your Presence You keep me aloof from all evil no matter any and all circumstances of glee or gloom.

Yes, You compel me to look around and be astonished at what goes on in this insanity ridden world.

I look around. I am astonished. Multitude of young people obsessed with the knowledge from the Tree of Good and Evil, but! Not a clue of what they do.

Multitude of parents obsessed with the raising of super knowledgeable children to rule the future in this world.

Behold the Great Fallen Away!

Right now as I look around all that goes on with young and old? I am astonished! The written words are coming to pass exactly as those are written, but!

What is it that troubles me with what I see? All this NOT so new thing with positive thinking and success, success, success.

Goodness sake! I am a member of Success Inspirers World Organization, and? Am I against SUCCESS? How that figures, O my Father? How that figures?

It figures in My written words, My child. I have planted you in this organization of My most selected children for you to herald those written words to them, why?

To prevent My most elected children from the great fallen away. You see, My child, your enemy is as shrew beyond your wildest imagination.

The enemy is no longer working on injecting doubt into your heart as to My intentions to forbid you to eat from that tree. No. That has already taken place.

So what is the enemy’s agenda now? To make of you a super human—full to the brim with the knowledge of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ quite capable to be your own ‘god’.

What for is there a need to depend on Me if you can depend on your own self, but! That is something not quite visible because of the camouflage of good and beautiful.

The New Age movement of positive thinking with all its branches? Is nothing else but tinsels instead of gold.

Even so, the GOLD of My Presence is now shinning forth from the heart of My selected witnesses. The experience of My written words?

That’s My work in the heart of My witnesses. That’s what makes My Presence shine forth as pure GOLD from the hearts of my selected vessels.

Furthermore? My selected vessels are not called to ‘teach’ or to ‘minister’ or to ‘police’ and apply those words as they see fit to do so. NAY!

My selected vessels only task is to refrain from doing any of that by the power of their mind. The written words CANNOT be taught by the power of the human mind.

It’s My Spirit Who gives LIFE to those words, but! The human mind is set to interpret and misconstrue My written words.

Therefore? My reason to empower you to give up the dependence in the human mind and heart both yours as well as any other human’s mind and heart.

My reason for planting you in the midst of My children in this institution? You are to share the experience of the words I have made alive in your heart.

Yahushua, Founder and Perfecter of Our Faith

THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,

Looking away [from all that will distract] to Yahushua, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of the Almighty.

What Sin?

What is the sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us? The sin of unbelief. We all brag about our beliefs, about our faith, but!

In real life? The Universities. The Doctors. The ‘Holy Ones’. The Worldly Famous. The Work of our hands? That’s the gist of our beliefs. That’s what we live by. That’s what is preached!

No kidding. I know the drill only too well, but! The power and wisdom from our Loving Father/Creator. He sent me a WITNESS. He turned me around, and? I saw!

What did I see?

The same thing the Father/Creator is now showing to all who has ears to hear and eyes to see. He showed me the utter arrogance of MY KNOWLEDGE!

I thought I knew Him when? I knew nothing period. Nothing about Him at all. Nothing about life. I was an educated fool!

O well? That’s my two cents to make the point of this writing. What am I to do right now?

Whether is liked or not? I am to proclaim to SIWO and the whole world, the TRUTH of the evil of what the world has programmed us to do on this SUCCESS thing. It’s written,

2Timothy 4:1-4

I CHARGE [you] in the presence of the Almighty and of Messiah Yahushua, Who is to judge the living and the dead, and by (in the light of) His coming and His kingdom:

Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching.

For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold,

And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions.

Dear Reader, none of us wish to hear such strong words. We are at the point that we only want to hear compliments and words of encouragement, but!

It’s imperative that we take these words, bitter as they are, in the same way we would take the most distasteful medication to heal our bodies.

NO! I am not against SUCCESS. I am for SUCCESS in hearing and understanding the intent of our Creator for creating us. He created us for 3 reasons:

  1. To love Him.
  2. To be loved by Him.
  3. Your Cherish Family O Mighty One? Forever To be!

Heavenly ointment to heal our wounded souls

To that end? We work day and night to accomplish His plan of restoration to the original intent for our creation.

Those words are the heavenly ointment to heal our wounded souls. Wounded by the lack of Knowledge of His loving ways.

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia. 🙂

Mom of three teenagers blogging journey !!

Seven Facts about myself

I, Me and Myself –   Always smiling and cheerful !!

I am a Self-Motivator – I don’t need someone to inspire or encourage me, I have been through hell of a situations – I just fight back silently, pat myself and again back to normal !!

Hard-working and self-sufficient – I prefer to do all my activities – without depending on others help – be it my daily household chores or at workplace – I don’t feel any activity as small – whatever is possible I try to do it myself !!

I love to be well-dressed – everyday is a new day – to celebrate life, if you dress well, you feel lively !!

Though I am introvert basically, but I can boast of many people around me sharing their top secrets – so maybe they feel that I am a secret-keeper and I won’t betray them (my siblings tease me as “Agony Aunt”); I am always ready to patiently listen to others !!

My Daddy has been, is and will always be my First Love (God snatched him away from me 2 years ago, but still he is there with me always in all my good and bad times – watching from Heaven above) !!

I love myself to be seen as Young and Beautiful always……. (not physically but by Heart and Soul).. I believe that Age is just a number, true beauty lies within you and your attitude !! So Be healthy, feel younger and smarter always !!!

What’s For You Today? To Find Out What’s For My Day! How’s That For Rumbustiousness ….?

Journal—An Ongoing Dialog Between thiaBasilia And Master Yahuwah/Yahushua. …

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 8:35 am.

Ha! What’s for my day? Ah! My Father—O Father of mine? You are leading all the way! Why have I not been posting since the last post?

I been busy following You lead to optimize, but! You know why I am doing that. You know me like a book. You led me to post that thing about Retribution, and, my readers? Half gone!

Been optimizing yes, but why not taking a few minutes to post some of the multitude of words You given to me in the last few days?

Aha! Just now? You done drop the bomb in my human mind! That’s enough to sober me up. To think like You think. What?

To Think Like You Think ….. ? Hold It Right There! ….No One Thinks Like YOU?

That’s the bomb Father dropped on my dizzy human thinking. O WELL! I used to have several illustrious ‘Men of The Cloth’ reading and following these lines I record daily, but!

They done quit me! Why? For making statements like that. You know all about it, my Father, but You insist in compelling me to make such statements.

Despite the cost to my readership? I must obey You. I must write what You lead me to write whether that’s for the liking or not liking of the readers of these lines. Why?

Ah! Great News! They’ll be back. How do I know that? Father revealed that to me as it’s written by His finger in the pages of the BOOK.

The Truth About Me? Probably Why The Readers Quit Me? The Truth Is ….?

I do not ‘know’ ANYTHING, but! I sound like a ‘know it all’. Pitiful me. Honest to goodness! Only the Father/Creator of our beings knows IT ALL!

I sound like a ‘know it all’ to be funny, but! People takes me seriously and? Stay away from my way! Hahaha! If they see me coming? They quickly hide themselves until I pass their way.

Full Of Laughter, Compassion, Immense Undying Love For All My Deserters!

You know what? This morning? Just a moment ago? I found myself so full of laughter, compassion, immense undying love for all my deserters!

I heard, ‘Now you thinking like Me.’ What? Think like You? What You talking about? How or what You think?

What’s The Core Of The Humongous Horrendous State And Condition Of The Human Being Despite All Knowledge Both Secular And Spiritual.

O thiaBasilia—O Child Of My Heart? My children pride themselves on their knowledge. Moreover? My children pride themselves on acquiring the highest degree of knowledge.

Whatever it’s secular or spiritual knowledge? My children’s aim is to show themselves approved and recognized.

My children’s life struggle is to achieve and succeed. Should they fail to achieve and succeed?

That’s the core of the humongous horrendous state and condition of the human being despite all knowledge both secular and spiritual.

And You Laughing About It?

So am I, My child. So am I. Why? Because, I know what you just realized a moment ago. What would that be?

My children think, act, live by what they know, but! My children do not ‘know’ Me. In the same way? You just realized it’s the same about you and your children and friends.

Your children and friends do not know you, but! Regardless? You have not for one instance stopped loving them.

Even more so? You realize they as well love you despite the lack of knowledge on either end.

Likewise? It’s between My children and My Being. Only difference? I know it all, but! I only let you know so much as you need to know at any given time, and?

Today? This Little Portion Of My Knowledge? Hit You Like A Bomb! Why?

Because it is a bomb—THE BOMB that completely destroyed all traces of evil murdering thoughts about your children et all.

Go On My Child! Now You Thinking Like I Think ….?

Rejoice forever more! No matter what evil comes your way now, whether from within or without? My power is in your hands to overcome it all!

Hey! Hey! Hey! No more ill thinking because my brother Ngobesing? O well, whatever he is up to or not up to? I love him and he loves me—that’s not ‘romantic’ love—hey away with evil thinking! Yes! I love him and you dear Reader with the love of my Yah. Hahaha! HalleluYah!

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.
