Did You Know😇
Did you know bananas contain 75% water. Bananas are rich in nutrients and are a good source of electrolytes. Just like an apple a day keeps the doctor away, it would seem that one banana a day is also very good to us too.

Thought For The Week

‘To say that we are ‘fired up’ by something, means that we are enthusiastic, ready to throw ourselves into a situation or activity with boundless energy and vigour.’ ~Naomi Starkey

When we describe someone as a fiery person, we usually see them in a negative way. It implies that the person is hot tempered, moody and unpredictable. Then when we use the words ‘fired up’ it is normally used in a positive way. We get fired up before a match or something important in our lives.

When we use the words ‘fired up’ in connection with God, it is also positive. It means that we are enthusiastic and upbeat in what we believe in. We feel that our faith is helpful, positive and something good in our lives. It fires us up, to help us get through any given day.

Our fire may sometimes be weak and barely noticeable, while at other times we have boundless energy and enthusiasm. There is no right or wrong place to be when it comes to faith matters. But anything that gives us hope, energy and positivity can only be a good thing. Hopefully today and throughout this week you will find hope, energy and positivity. Even if it comes in small bundles, we welcome them with open arms.
