The wait!

It’s long;
It’s strong;

It’s often tiring;
It’s often enduring;

The wait makes us anxious;
The wait becomes thunderous;

I am currently waiting and it’s tough;
The road very much appears rough;

But I choose to remain hopeful;
Thereby becoming prayerful!

Officially 27!

I just turned 27 years old, and I am like wow the number sounds weird to my ears. I have to get used to the fact that am 3 years away from the Big 30. Ahahahaha I can’t wait, but for now let me enjoy this season. You know what though? I am grateful to be alive during this season. Its indeed a season set apart for the Lord to do His mighty works. Who knew I will be alive at such a time like this? Despite all the challenges I faced during the past 26 years, I am grateful to say that they have officially shaped me into the beautiful and strong lady that I am today.

My life took another turn before the end of my 26th year on planet earth. I got married and just like some friends said, yesterday I celebrated my first birthday as a married woman (hahahah). Several people wished me a happy birthday, and yes am glad to say that Hubby (a word that I rarely pronounce-mainly because marriage is still surreal) was the first person to wish me happy birthday. I appreciate everyone’s wishes and blessings. I smiled and indeed had a great day.

I am happy to kick-start my 27th year and continuously pray that God favors me each and every day of my life. I live for Christ, so I aim to do and be a better person. Therefore I ask of you, please don’t hesitate to correct me whenever I misbehave or side-track.

I want to be better, I want you to be better too, I want us to be better, so lets work together to make ourselves better.

I pray that we become each others keeper and seek to continuously flourish together, because there is room for everyone at the TOP.

Stay blessed and Thank you for the wishes.

27 and blessed!

Daily perceptions

It’s a new year. The month of January is almost over and we are about to jump into the second month of the year. Prior to January 31st, I carefully and patiently pondered over this month’s blog post and suddenly thought about a lived experience.

The experience am referring to is the development of resentment and hatred due to misjudgment.

Human beings need to stop preconceived judgement and hatred! As I pondered over this statement, the following questions ran through my mind:

1) How often do we judge people based on what others have said?

2) Why do we use the information gathered from external sources as basis for our judgement and perception of others?

3) How many times have we fallen short in our attitude and interaction with others due to false or negative information received?

4) How often do we back track and say no to gossip or false information?

5) Have we realized that the more we listen to what people have to say about others, the more we develop a feeling of resentment towards those people?

6) Have you made a conscious decision to stop judging others based on what you hear?

As a result, it will be better to get to know people before Judging or negatively perceiving them.

I welcome you to join me in this quest for change and transformation. By changing our associations, we change our perception of others, we change the way we interact and the way we react.

Let’s pursue this with a passion and develop love for all mankind in lieu of resentment, doubt and hatred.

Happy new month!

Memories

I woke up in the morning;
Breath fresh air;
Said a prayer;
Took my shower;
Dressed up and left.

I went about my day;
Got to work;
Took my break;
Received a call;
A dear one was gone.

Continued with work;
Made a few calls;
Alerted others;
My life had changed;
She was precious.

She was my name sake;
I remember talking to her 3 weeks earlier;
Little did we both know;
She is now in a better place;
Watching over us all.

I go through the day;
Then night comes;
I sleep and dream about life together;
What the future would have been like;
I wake up and know it was all a dream.

I wake up and I thank God;
It’s a brand new day;
I am alive;
I can breath;
I am grateful.

I am grateful for her life;
I know she will want us to keep living;
I will keep our name shining for us;
She will forever be in my heart;
I miss you.

See you soon!!

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!

In the spirit of INCLUSION

As I write this post, I feel devalued.
As I write this post I feel vulnerable.
As I write this post I feel rejected.

The feeling you have when people think you are stupid.
The feeling you have when people discredit you.
The feeling you have when life gives you a blow.

I might be neglected by some but surely not by all.
I might be worthless for some, but certainly not for my friends.
I might be dumb for some, but definitely not for my family.

Who are we to judge others?
Who are we to stigmatize others?
Who are we to prejudice others?

You don’t know their story.
You don’t know their struggle.
You don’t know their beliefs.

It’s important to understand the differences existing in society.
It’s important to understand the uniqueness of each individual.
It’s important to understand the values we each possess.

Life will be better if we accepted our differences.
Life will be better if we respected the diversity.
Life will be better if we included everyone.

 

Have a blessed week!
