I saw a picture message on Instagram on Sunday asking people to drop comments to describe their fathers. I was shocked at the alarming number of insulting comments and curses by people to their Dads. Like seriously? “He-goat”, “Bastard”, “What does that even mean?”, “There’s no such word in my dictionary”. And I wondered, how does a father, who is supposed to be the epitome of honor and pride in the family become such object of ridicule and hate? … More Celebration with Reservations
Love is a beautiful thing. In my language, they say “love is a temptation”. Don’t ask me, I still can’t relate but for those who believe love comes with ups and downs, I still can’t relate. Life has ups and downs but not love except we do certain things that trigger change in behavior which affects love’s long-suffering. Otherwise, love is love, constant and even grows if nurtured.
I can’t imagine a love that doesn’t care or manifests or gives most especially. The capacity in which these things are expressed is what qualifies a person as a lover, not by mere words of “I love you”. … More If you were the opposite sex, would you be happy to be loved the way you are loving your partner now?
I asked my nine year old, “Do you think Thanos is bad?”
“Depending on how you want to look at it but I don’t think he’s bad. I think he thought he had to do the things that he did. Like he told Gamora after wiping away half her kingdom, the generations afterwards have been peaceful. I also think he will turn good in Part 2”, my son said. … More Is Thanos really a bad guy?

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?
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”

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?
