Once you had did,
The next minute it’s gone
But is it?
It’s either you have it or don’t.
It gets you out of bed in the mornings
Keeps you through the toughest days
And has you up late into the night. … More Rediscovering the pathway to inspiration
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
7:7:17 – What a glorious day!
The number 7 stands for rest, completeness and perfection. In light of these, Matthew 7:7-17 encourages us to ask, seek, knock; encourages us through the narrow gate; and warns us against false prophets. In Joshua 6:1-20, the wall of Jericho fell down flat on the 7th day. … More Seek. Ask. Knock
Sex and money. Success and fame. What gives you pleasure?
Pleasure is a broad class of mental states that we experience as enjoyable or worth seeking. It’s amazing how these things that give us pleasure can consume our minds. I saw an image message some time ago asking whether you’ll rather choose a life devoid of sex over money or vice versa. When I deliberated about the question, I wondered, how would life be if we all chose money over sex? How would children be born? Perhaps, God can just deliver children to us whenever He feels we’re ready for them. In this way, a lot of couples still waiting to have children might not fall into this category while so many who have children might not be so fortunate. … More Pleasures
The first day of the second half of the year starts now. Tick tock.
Just like last night was full of worries, frustrations, longing, yearning, doubt and whatever it was that you thought wasn’t working according to plan, today is a brand new day. I don’t know why it feels like a new year. The first half was good enough. Now I’m waiting for fireworks. I can’t wait to let the colors burst ‘cause I’m also excited to see what’s still in store in this new beginning of the year.
So July, surprise me pleasantly. … More Hello July, surprise me.
If the society is really concerned about the future and raising confident world leaders then we should learn to love and accept one another regardless of the past. Who doesn’t have a past anyway? The future has greater hopes for those who will embrace the joys of life. … More The hope of the single mother
There’s always a way to make something good look even more appealing. Like the old fashioned amala and ewedu. It’s generally known to be Ibadan’s favorite meal but there are loads of amala joints all over Lagos. For someone like me who doesn’t like eating at every buca for consciousness of hygiene, I’ve found a neat new joint to eat decent amala with gbegiri and ewedu in the heart of Lagos without having to travel all out to Ibadan. … More The Amala Place
The girl child problem starts from the home like every issue that was neglected or not properly addressed. And this continues as she interacts with the general society if not helped. There are ordinarily more concerns in having a girl child. There are a lot of things you should be careful about and even fearful for. I’m not trying to scare anyone but it’s about the flimsiness of the anatomy of the girl that makes everything about her different, special. It wasn’t until about early 20s that the girl child was accepted largely in the Nigerian society. Before then and still in some parts of Nigeria, especially in the North and East, parents feel more blessed and fulfilled to have a son. A girl child is born and socialized into the belief of being inferior or sub human with attendant marginalization and abuse. She is often held responsible and punished for any misfortune of her parents. At the backdrop of situations like, not only is the psychology of that child been tampered with but it gets worse by her interactions and expectations from the world around her. … More Family abuse and domestic violence
