Ubi Caritas et Amor, Deus ibi Est

“Where Charity and Love are, God is there”.

This is what Ubi Caritas et Amor Deus ibi Est means in Latin. Indeed Latin is a beautiful language and I would love to learn it. Think of the Latin phrases that we commonly use in English, i.e. (id est),  carpe diem, per se, per capita, per diem, bona fide, vice versa, de facto, et cetera. I guess anything you say in Latin makes you look classy – Totus Tuus.

Natamani Kutembea Nawe – Rebekah Dawn

I like this song so much. In fact, like is an understatement. I looove it. I heard it once but forgot about it.
I couldn’t find complete lyrics online so I wrote it down. Hope they are correct 🙂

Kutembea Nawe by Rebekah Dawn

Nikipoteza njia
Kwa safari Nimechagua
Nisipokuwa na nguvu

Niongoze kwa neema
Nifuze kwa upole wako
Hata nikikukosea nsaidie

Sielewi Njia Hii
Ndio Maana Nakuhitaji
Nakutegemea Wewe

Nashindwa Kukupa Yote
Hata Hivyo Nita Amini
Kwani Najua Mwisho ehh
Kuna Raha

Natamani kutembea nawe
Natamani kutembea nawe
Natamani kutembea nawe

You’re Beautiful – Creation Speaks of God

The bible speaks a lot about creation. It starts in Genesis when God spoke and the creation came into existence. This is especially true of the heavenly hosts – stars, planets, galaxies, sun & moon etc.

Sombrero Galaxy:

A couple of days ago a friend and I (after watching The Martian) were chatting about things in the heavens – about the beauty of the galaxies. She is fascinated by them.
