I appreciate all your comments on my last post. I Still have my short hair on and this is because most of you said it looked good on me (winks)... So I am keeping it on for a while, **thank you! and thank you!! you far too kind.** on each cheek of everyone is a big fat kiss, Muaaaahhh!! (hope you felt it) lol.
Away from the lovely kiss, I heard a story over the weekend that got me really sad and teary eyed but also helped me add some more lessons to my "bag of wisdom" (my bag of wisdom contains lessons I have learnt so far in this life of mine). Although it's a sad story, I just have to share. So please read I am sure you will learn a thing or two at the end.
There is this mad woman (not the violent type) who's been sleeping in front of corridors of shops around the salon I have been going to make my hair, but I noticed she's been missing for a while from where she used to sit and stare at passers by. I was at the same salon over the weekend to get my nails done, and it happened that she was the topic of discussion (call it gossip or otherwise). I got interested so I listened with rapt attention
According to what they said, (i.e, the ladies I met at the salon) the now mad woman apparently used to live abroad happily with her family until she invited her very good friend over, with the hope of helping her get appropriate papers that will enable her stay abroad legally, since things were getting really tough for her in Ghana. (I suppose they were very close pals).
Her good deeds turned to evil as she caught her supposed best friend and her "loving" husband in bed one day and that dis-stabilize her sanity. As if that was not enough, the friend in question was able to convince the man to send his wife back to Ghana and the man (as if he was being controlled by some evil spell cast on him) carried out this recommendation sheepishly.
Sadly, the family of the now mentally unstable woman had to reject her on the basis that she abandoned them when things were good for her and to that extent were not ready to take the responsibility of catering for her now that she had become a liability. Sad indeed right?
Now these are the few things I learnt
Now these are the few things I learnt
- Let us be mindful of the sort of people we surround ourselves with and call friends, for some have their faces masked under the fine surface. (reason for my title). And for those of you who read the most celebrated book of William Shakespeare - Macbeth; King Duncan said "the construction of the face can never tell the intents of a man's heart". Beware... never take people on face value.
- We can not do without our families. Whether married or unmarried/good or bad, they are the very foundations for our lives and should be cherished, and helped whenever the need arises.
- Prayer is the root of every solid and happy marriage, and with constant prayers no third person can break in to destroy it. The reason why the Bible said we should "Pray without ceasing"
No one knows presently where this woman is or could be. whether she is dead or alive, only God knows. I pray the good Lord locates her and cause her to be sane again (that is if she is still alive) and I pray she is.
Let us also remember that Christ is the solid ground upon which we stand. Therefore, all other ground is sinking sand. Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion which cannot be shaken or removed, but abides forever. Where many fall they will stand!!! So let us learn to build on the rock which is CHRIST and also on righteousness. May the lord plant our feet on higher grounds. (did I hear an Amen...?)
Thanks for reading, I would love to read your thoughts so please do not hesitate to leave one. Thanks once again.
Peace… I’m out
