The Royal Wedding: Groundbreaking History

For one, the bride is not even British and every other thing that came along with that seemed to be overlooked and embraced. Perhaps, someone fought or had to fight the good fight of faith to have something so different be so gloriously celebrated.

In blessed memory of Princess Diana, she was her own strong personality the Monarchy had to crack. Bringing her passion for people and fashion into an environment with high walls of protocol and panache, she broke free for the likes of Kate Middleton and Meghan Merkle to have a smooth transition to being their own persons while adopting the royal styles. … More The Royal Wedding: Groundbreaking History

The Royal Wedding: Between God & Man

One of many captivating moments was the infusion of the Afro pop world into the service. From the sermon to the choir rendition – lovely is an understatement. Bishop Curry delivered a meaningful and inspiring sermon in which he discussed the power of love. “Imagine if love is the way… When love is the way, we will let justice roll down in… We’d actually treat each other like we are actually family.” And family is what the world needs. It is how the home needs to perceive itself, not pulled apart by differences in culture, beliefs, age, skin color and other biases. … More The Royal Wedding: Between God & Man

Caring . . .

Caring . . .

It’s very important,

Like the power to heal,

Like a balm that soothes pain.

When a child feels reassured that someone cares,

An occasional a hug, a loving kiss

Prep talks of encouragement and lots of patience

Just to show that I really care. … More Caring . . .

Submit Wisdom to Ego

I heard a story of a man who said to a woman, “I know the reason you’re came to study in the university is because you want to find a husband. There’s no need to study any further because I’m ready to marry you now”. If only she had been foolish then but she completed her first degree and wanted to go for Maters degree but he would not have her do that if she is to be his wife.

Sometimes, really, all women have to do is to call the bluff. Because the man who would rather have a woman not have a first degree, eventually waited four long years. … More Submit Wisdom to Ego

I’m at Peace

I said I couldn’t do this anymore,

But everyone seemed to have a better opinion of my life, of the capacity of my strength,

But they have no idea of the courage I’ve had to put up through these smiles.

I begged that he would stop hitting me,

But everyone seemed to be so sure I must be doing something to provoke him,

But they have no idea what the pain and aches feel like at the end of the day. … More I’m at Peace

Is it Pride or Faith?

In the Scriptures, Apostle Paul brings up boasting as a major contender of faith. Paul knew, both from personal experience and from the Scriptures, how deeply embedded in our fallen hearts is the pride that wants to take some credit for being our own saviour. Even if we acknowledge that God is the primary agent of our salvation, we’re still prone to claim that we had something to do with it, so that we can boast. Every man wants to take some credit for “his/her” intelligence anyway. … More Is it Pride or Faith?

Empty Tomb

“If you love me, keep my commandment”.

Isn’t that what we all wish true love would mean or do for us? To appreciate love and the sacrifices made. To know that even while we are away, love still remembers and celebrates what was once a burning desire in our hearts.

Jesus Christ said, “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” … More Empty Tomb

“The Talk”

Is it necessary for couples or intending couples to have “the talk”? In most cases, adults just go with the flow, shying away from addressing a lot of topics even when they begin to affect their relationship in some ways. No one just really wants to talk about the ‘not-so-good’ things that may be affecting intimacy in the relationship. Everyone just somehow wants to be fine with where the relationship is. … More “The Talk”

How long is ideal to “I do”?

News broke out in recent times that a young lady attempted suicide after she discovered that her fiancé whom she had dated for over three years had ditched her and was planning to marry  another woman in a couple of weeks. The troubled lady had believed the guy would certainly marry her after several years of courtship, but it turned out she was wrong.

“The average length of an engagement is 14 months but is it OK to be engaged much longer than that?” … More How long is ideal to “I do”?
