The little things that make a difference!

Let me tell you a short and sweet story today.
On a faithful day, as I was heading to a BBQ, I received a call to go pick up a friend. I agreed and headed to pick up my friend. And guess what? Since I was tired of driving, my friend agreed to take on the wheel until we reached the BBQ’s location. But something extraordinary happened on our way to the BBQ. I received a text message from the host to stop by the grocery store and get some extra drinks and water, to which I agreed hesitatingly.

But you know what? God had planned it otherwise, because our stop at the grocery store was very fruitful.

As we were about to pack the car we ran into an old acquaintance; whom we hadn’t seen in a while. We greeted each other and headed our way. Some seconds later, she comes running towards us again stating that she had locked her car keys in the car. All frustrated and sad about her action, I looked at her and immediately asked my friend to assist her (as I recalled that my friend had previously been in a similar situation and managed to unlock the car). That being said, all 3 of us headed to the grocery store to pick up the items and back to the car. After picking up the items, the car was successfully unlocked. As soon as the car door got unlocked, she stared amazed with a grateful and joyful heart. At that very instant, I exclaimed that our meeting was indeed divinely ordained. Upon hearing that declaration, she brightened up even further and gave us hugs upon hugs.

The encounter made us realize that noting happens in vein, but all things happen for a purpose and are ordained. We laughed about it and thanked the Lord for the divine encounter. Finally, we headed our separate ways and considered the day to be a fruitful one.

What conditions your time?

Time:
They say heals every wound;
They say mends every broken heart;
They say reveals true character(s);
They say tells you who your friends are;
They say makes you weep;
They say makes you happy!

They say:
With time you can move mountains;
With time you can get better;
With time you can love again;
With time you can be hopeful again;
With time you can change;
With time you can be wise!

So:
How do you use your time?
How do you share your time?
How do you let others use your time?
How do you value your time?
How do you prioritize who you give your time to?
How do you ensure that your time is maximized to your advantage?

Time brings about change and change is the only constant we have. Therefore let’s go forth and be smart users of our time.

That Vision

I had a vision;
The vision was broken;
The vision has been altered;
The vision is shaking.

I had a vision;
My life’s purpose;
I see it changing;
How do I grasp it?

I had a vision;
My childhood dreams;
The dreams of becoming who I was created to be;
I will work to achieve.

I had a vision;
The discussions with my parents;
The successes and failures;
I will strive to achieve.

I had a vision;
The hope of a family;
The hope of a nation;
To make history.

That vision I will achieve!

Happy Sunday,

Till next week!!

I love you

We fight;
We argue;
We keep quiet;
We become intentional;
We make peace;
We make it work.

We fight;
We practice silence;
We groan;
We grow;
We decide to talk;
We make it work.

We fight;
We distance ourselves;
We slip;
We remember;
We dream;
We make it work.

We fight;
We disappear;
We cry;
We yearn;
We celebrate;
We make it work.

I will make it work for you
I love you!!!

Have a great week!

Unity #AtoZChallenge

Today is Day 21 of the A-Z blogging challenge, and I feel great. This feeling of greatness is partly because you all. All my faithful readers and commentators.
Thank you for your support and unity. I call it Unity, because of your belief in me. You decided to tag along on my blogging journey.

Blogging is a journey for me, just as soccer or poetry might be for someone else. It’s a journey of self discovery, passion and growth. There is need for constant support in order for everyone to be successful in our different journeys.

Given that man/ woman isn’t an island, we are called to live and interact with others on a daily basis. We need people to join forces with us in order to take us farther. We can’t succeed by working alone. People who believe in our dreams encourage us to pursue and aim higher. Unity is therefore important and necessary for growth.

Who do you often unite with? If you don’t have any team members, I am willing and ready to join forces with you if need be. Networking at events also helps unite people and paths.

We all need people to unite with us. One can chase 1000 but, two or more can chase several thousands.

Therefore, go forth and unite with others as you pursue your goals.

Have a tangible tuesday.
Be blessed!

Gifts #AtoZChallenge

Gifts are precious and beautiful, especially when they come from our love ones.

Most people love receiving gifts.
Who doesn’t love receiving gifts?
If you tell me that; I will immediately request for your friendship. Hahahah we could form our own friendship and gift exchange clan.

When comparing men and women, women love receiving gifts more than men. Don’t we all? I have always wondered the reasoning behind this passionate love for gifts.

Over the years, I have learned that We have give as much as we receive. In order for us not become eternal receivers, we should make a conscious decision to also be givers.

Wait a second, it’s not a crime to always be on the receiving end. It’s rather a sign that our personality or actions are good, and as a result cause others to give to us.

It’s always a pleasure for me to receive from others, but I derive more pleasure when I give to others.

Giving is great. Its an act of love, an act of selflessness and a display of affection and care for others. Even the Bible tells us in Acts 20:35 that “…There is greater blessing in giving than receiving”.
Our Giving could be in the form of time, energy, words, money, material possessions, etc. All that matters is the giving heart and hand.

We shouldn’t wait for special occasions to give people gifts. The giving of gifts should be a spontaneous everyday act. We give out of the kindness of our hearts and not because it’s Christmas season or someone’s birthday.

I therefore urge you to give out of the kindness of your heart and not out of obligation. Since most of us love receiving gifts, it’s only wise for us to also give to others in return.

Be blessed as you give.
