“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:19 NIV
I have just returned from a visit to Puerto Rico. The island has still not fully recovered from the effects of the hurricanes last year (building on the left) but things are happening (building on the right).
That is why today’s verse applies in so many ways. The people of Puerto Rico know that God is doing a new thing. He is helping them to rebuild their home and their country. He is showing them it can be done because He is the creator of new things as evidenced in these beautiful Plazas Las Americas mall decorations. Do you agree? How has God done a new thing in your life?
I’ve just returned from an amazing trip to Dubai (stay tuned for future posts!!!) – the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf, Dubai is the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, one of the seven emirates that make up the country.
There’s lots and lots to tell you about Dubai but I wanted to take the opportunity to share the magic of the Dubai Fountains which are timed to energetically “dance” to the beat of beautiful cultural music.
People wait in large crowds just to witness the show – and there is different music for each “performance” – but you get to sit back and enjoy just over 60 seconds of liquid lines of gold, moving against an awesome city skyline.

Upon arrival in Shinjuku one of the first things we did was to check out a restaurant or two for dinner. Imagine my surprise to see what appeared to be actual dishes, standing upright in beautifully made display cases, invitingly showcased in several windows (complete with prices and what looked like descriptions)!
Upon a closer look, I realised the very realistic looking dishes were actually made out of moulds. Yikes! Looks as though Tokyo restaurant owners fully believe that variety is the spice of life!
It was hard to choose but in the end, this is what I decided on having for dinner 🙂
