Barbados Was Tough No Electricity Phone or Water

Barbados was tough back then and there wasn’t much. We didn’t have electricity, phone or water. You had to go to the stand pipe if you wanted water. You could be waiting for almost a half hour before you could even get a bucket full. Everyone would be at that pipe, cows in all and you had to wait till they were finished drinking. In order to have water to start the day we would have to fetch it early mornings before school.

Innerstanding Death


By Michelle Matthews

It is never easy depending on the way one dies to accept the lost of a love one or getting use to the fact they are no longer physically in our presence.
Despite the obvious, there is comfort in knowing that even though they have moved on, they are now beginning another journey. As we cling to memories to assist with our grieving process just know you are energy and will always exists.

Woman’s Body Was In Her Apartment 3 Years With The TV On

For three years her body lay in her apartment, all alone, with the television still on. She was surrounded by Christmas gifts—it appeared that she was still in the midst of wrapping them. But yet, this young lady lay dead without anyone noticing or caring about her whereabouts.

Joyce Carol Vincent was only 38 years old when she apparently passed away, and 41 years old when her remains were finally found laying on her living room sofa. Her body was so badly decomposed that the reason of death could not be determined. She was identified from dental records.

And yet no one checked on her for three whole years.

Her body was finally discovered after Building Officials invaded her home on a repossession order.  The year was 2006 when they finally took possession of her place.  Once they entered into the apartment, a pile of mail greeted them in the front entrance and the apartment was covered with spider webs from the ceiling to the floor.

Who Makes You Happy?

When you go into a relationship or when we the marry someone it’s because they bring us so much happiness, they bring so much joy into our lives.
 
When we fall in love every other kind of happiness we’ve ever experienced might feel small in comparison so much so that we settle on this one thought: “this person make me happy’’ but that’s not true!
 
You made yourself happy. You made the choice to allow yourself to open up to someone incredible. You made the decision to commit to some whom you feel extremely connected to.
 
You made the choice to hang in there even when the person has hurt you, nobody can make us happy. We have been the one who has brought happiness into our own lives.
 
If you’re feeling happy because you have great friends it’s because you have chosen to surround yourself with genuine, generous and loving people, if you’re feeling happy because you have a great family it’s because you have chosen to be consciously grateful for them.



 
Similarly NO ONE can make us unhappy. No wife, no husband, no ex-girlfriend, no ex-boyfriend, no friends, no family, NO ONE can make us unhappy. We have always been the ONLY one who can cause our own suffering our own unhappiness because it is always our reaction to the circumstances that dictates whether we feel happy or not.
 
It’s never what happens or who happened it’s how we handle it. it’s also who we have or don’t have in our lives because we cannot have a healthy relationship until we know that our happiness cannot be given to us by someone else.
 
We don’t expect people to lose weight for us so why would we expect people to make us happy?
 
We’ve got to do it ourselves. It’s perfectly normal to feel unhappy to feel affected by people and things but once we tune our mind to the fact our happiness is not out there somewhere but in us we can easily let go and find our balance again. Nobody can make us happy but you can always always always make yourself happy.
 
Be happy always.

 

 

How Parish Churches Started In Barbados

The term parish derives from the islands religious Anglican history under the Church of England. Several chapels were created during the 17th century across the island of Barbados and some local churches were elevated to parish church status.

Why Is Spiritual Truth So Elusive?

Why is spiritual truth so elusive? Why is it that matters of spiritual significance are so hard to verify and validate?

What Does a Funeral Home Do?


Depending upon the wishes of the family and their specific needs concerning the death of their loved one, we have many directors here in Barbados and there are many activities our funeral home will take care of, from the time we are first called until the chosen services are concluded. No situation is exactly the same, but the following list is a brief summary of things a family should know about the services a funeral home (the funeral director and his staff) performs upon a person’s death.

Alone But Not Lonely

In today’s fast paced society, weve become accustomed to filling the eeriness of silence with fluff. We turn to many distractions as a means of escaping feelings of idleness or boredom. But the main thing we wish to elude is loneliness. Solitude does not have to alienating or lonesome. In fact, solitude and loneliness are distinctly separate.
