Can you keep a secret?
If walls could talk,
…., they would say I want you more
They would say
Hey, ever felt like this before?
That you’ll always be the one for me
If walls had eyes,
My, eye would see the love inside
They would see me in your arms in ecstasy
And with every move they’d know
I love you so … More #SOTD: If walls could talk
When one door shuts, another one opens right? Typically another door will open, either a better opportunity or a worse one but we all hope for better opportunities always. No matter the hardship, naturally we believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel. There has to be, otherwise, how do you know you have reached the end of the tunnel? Even Jesus Christ had to suffer before He was exalted.
For Nigeria, we wait, hopeful, believing that we are going through a tough time in readiness for the good times for us and our children. Remember that this season is being celebrated because Jesus Christ died for us? So that we might have a better life? So that we might be free from all limitations? When He died, He did say, ‘It is finished’.
So I choose to be re-assured by the passion of the cause of Jesus Christ’s death. I believe Nigeria will be raise again. I believe God has more and better in store for me far beyond my expectations for myself. I believe the set time has come and all things will be made new again by the power in the resurrection of the Holy Lamb.
This is my assurance and my declaration . . . in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. … More Re-assured by the passion of the season

So Lent is over and I felicitate and celebrate with my sisters and brothers who were able to partake of this holy experience. So now we look forward to Easter.
My daughter asked me, mummy what do we do in Easter? I wondered why a 4 year old would want to know that, apart from knowing its a time of celebration. Good curiosity though. I guess it shows she’s got a thinking and intelligent mind.
So what do we do in Easter? It’s a time we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was accused based on false interpretation of His Words knowingly by those who deliberately wanted Him out of their way. Kings were threatened by Him and the Church was intimidated by Him. So what better way to silence Him than to crucify Him. But He had said that He would destroy the Temple and rebuild it in 3 days but the people didn’t understand Him, as usual. So we celebrate the salvation of our soul on the day Jesus died. His sole purpose was this – to set the captives free and deliver the helpless. When He died, we were made free and the rose on the third day. Death was defeated when Jesus Christ was risen from the grave. He died to take away our sins, our shame and by His death, we are free forever.
So to my daughter, we celebrate at Easter because Jesus Christ died and rose again. We celebrate the death and resurrection. We celebrate the salvation of our souls. We celebrate because we are free. And most importantly, I remember that Jesus Christ first loved me so much that He willingly died so that I might be made whole.
Hallelujah! Amen. … More Mummy, what do we do in Easter?
I am excited about everything that has to do with my children. Naturally, I want to see them grow, excel, be the best they can be and explore every means to motivate and encourage them. So when I see on TV, Disney’s Dream Big Princess Ad, I am thrilled. I get goose pumps watching it, seeing the intensity of the excitement and belief in my children’s eyes for what they didn’t even know they could be. Like a politician, an astronaut and an archer. Thanks Disney for this campaign. Thanks for giving the children the opportunity to believe they can be graceful and powerful at the same time.

Forget Nigeria, I guess the world is also merely thriving in these trying times. Just yesterday, I was watching a program on CNN and it was speaking, verbatim, the language of most companies in Nigeria now. Productivity. What is productivity anyway?
“The effectiveness of productive effort (achieving a significant amount or result), especially in industry, as measured in terms of the rate of output per unit of input”.
I suppose this covers everything – every company’s expectation of their employees and everyone’s expectation of themselves basically. So from day one of any venture at all – careful planning, excellent execution and successive consistent delivery of exceptional result is very key. In the words of a professionally accomplished young Ireland woman I know, “put yourself out there. No one will necessary give you the platform to succeed until you take the bulls by the horns and be counted”.
In the usual exercise of a lot of companies, re-org, downsizing, and lay-off, whatever you what to call it, over the last few years, millions of people have found themselves involuntarily out of work—too often through no fault of their own, notwithstanding the conscious effort to deliver and be productive. Unfortunately, this exercise has come to stay. But whether the reason you lost your job has everything to do with your perceived performance, or absolutely nothing, it’s how you respond in the wake of it that will set you apart from others before the next job surfaces. A proactive and positive mindset will differentiate you from the masses, making all the difference in how “lucky” you get in an unlucky economy. It will even determine whether you one day look back on this time with some measure of gratitude for what you gained from it—whether it was the chance to re-evaluate your life, spend extra time with your family, re-strategize on spends and savings, or to simply re-affirm what matters most.
