Have you ever wondered how sweet the mystery is that a fountain never runs dry?
Never gets old, wanting more of that jetting beauty,
The gush of waters, never tired, never diminished, unreserved.
If love were a fountain, gushing unreserved desire, how willing are you to accept it?
Seeing, knowing, assured, yet it gets old and we’ve place a tag on it.
The essence is lost only because true love is at no financial implication
Yet we let it slide so easily because it came so easily. … More Fountain of Love
Did you feel pressured to settle down with a partner, or is this someone you actually want to be with? Take an assessment of situation that surrounded you at the time you felt compelled you were in love in the first place. Did you have a loss? Are you getting older and lonelier? Are you the only sibling or cousin not married or at least ‘with’ someone? Divorce, death of a parent, aging, and other losses can propel people to mate with the next available person, whether wrong or right for you. … More Are you in love with the right person?
Some stories I’ve heard this week has shocked me to my very bone and the truth is, no one is really addressing these issues head on – practically. The African society makes it impossible to speak out as a woman and expect to get helpful responses to deal with these issues with useful advice. The Church makes it even worse for these things to be mentioned amongst us. But have we stopped to realize that in reality, most of us are not as spiritual as we want the society to believe we are? And men take advantage of this, knowing the society can only encourage or lead the woman on to keep hoping, be prayerful and patient. Are we actually looking at the situation from the perspective that we are only encouraging the men to be lazier and less responsible for their actions? Who is going to address the men to get off their butts and be real men? … More Who will address the ill that has found its’ way into the family?
Imagine a baby who can’t speak but cries for every want – cold, hot, hungry, sleepy, wants to play, wants to be picked up, fighting sleep and the likes. No matter how much we want to calm a crying baby, it’s usually frustrating after trying many things and the baby is still wailing. That’s how unappreciative lack of expression can be. Hence a sudden reaction or responses thereafter will not be as appreciated as a constructive self-expression. It doesn’t necessarily mean that every thought, even anger, ought to be communication as they are but communication makes effort and situations better understood and appreciated. … More Lack of Expression kills Appreciation
As time goes by, life happens. We look forward and ahead to things yet to come. Perhaps if we knew what tomorrow holds, we might not look forward to it as much as we want tomorrow to be better. I thought life as a teenager was more eventful than the early twenties which was filled with more appreciation for life and family than I can remember. I remember the New Year eves spent watching fire works with the entire family and the house full of laughter and giggles. But for whatever challenges those years brought, nothing beats 2017. … More What a year!
