Daddy's Love Letter...


Greetings everyone!

I am excited this morning. Excited, because I saw this video, and I just thought that I couldn't forgive myself if I didn't share it. It's a perfect piece, and speaks of God in a way that a lot of us are unwilling to see Him. As I watched, I imagined how the relationship with my son, and how I will still and always be a mum, no matter what goes on between us. We are such loving parents, uncles and aunts, but it is so difficult for us to see God in that light... Like seriously, we act like we will beat God to it when it comes to being parent. He is our FATHER... 

But we are unable to relate with that fact. We hurt when our kids act like they can't trust us. We did and still do the same to our parents and some of us even got into trouble while refusing to connect to our parents' love because of things we did or didn't do. Our parents felt/feel bad about our lack of understanding of their love, and we feel the same with our kids; how much more God, who offers us a perfect love? We prefer to listen to people who give us the impression that God is mean, draconian and downright inaccessible, and while watching this clip, I asked myself if my mum ever denied me of anything I needed (especially love) merely because I did something wrong or offended her, even when she had to beat me... My answer was a sober no.

Look... this movie made sense to me, and I hope it does the same for you. Enjoy and be blessed:

Need I say more?

Stampede at T.B Joshua’s church: 4 dead, several injured

Hello everyone...

Read this story and had to share, please read and share your views. Thanks! 

"A scheduled Sunday church service at the Spintex branch of the Synagogue Church of all Nations has been cancelled due to a stampede which left three men and one woman dead at the church premises on Sunday.

The man of God, Prophet TB Joshua had earlier announced the distribution of anointed water during Sunday’s service on the church’s station, Emmanuel TV.

Hundreds of people reportedly started arriving at the church premises from 8pm on Saturday and before the service could start by Sunday morning, there was a stampede due to the huge numbers at the venue.


According to Citi News editor, Richard Mensah, who was at the scene, the District Police Commander confirmed the deaths and 15 other casualties and stated that both the dead and injured had been conveyed to the hospital.

Even though the church requested security from the police, they did not anticipate such a massive crowd numbering 45,000. Speaking to Citi News, one of the church officials, Rev Sam Mc-Caanan said they had to stop the service because they heard a commotion outside the building.


“Everything started very well this morning but in about 30 minutes we heard some commotion outside the church premises. We went outside the building only to find a stampede and people being trampled over," he stated.

Rev Mc-Caanan further mentioned, "We had to cancel the service and invite the national ambulance over to help the people. We also had the police beef up their security. We also cancelled it because we did not want to aggravate the situation."


He described the casualties as unfortunate and unprecedented, “we are used to numbers but we have not had an occasion like this. We are very devastated, it’s very unfortunate and we are very sorry. We have to do a thorough work around this to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

Yesterday, a popular musician in Ghana called Iwan wrote this on his wall on FB "I Hear Say some People dey Go Take Holy water .. Wey Dem Die .. I shock Give My People Ghana, God is Right Beside You, So why Looking Elsewhere .. No Holy Water would Grant U Salvation .. Change from Your Ways and Jah Would also Change U .. No Man has God in His Hands .. God has all Of Us in His Hands.. TB Joshua can Never Save U from Ur Sins .. Wake Up Sleeping Beauties"

I think I agree with Iwan, what do you think? 

I wish the casualties a speedy recovery and the dead, a perfect rest in peace, Amen! 

Peace...I'm out!

I'm Still Here...

My very own people!!!

I trust we all doing awesome? Sorry for not updating as often as I used to. I had to take some time to do some stock-taking to assess myself and my life, to make sure I am fulfilling the purpose for which God created me. So here I am... Can't say I am back, but I am almost around.lol.

I got an email I couldn't ignore, from a friend who has been following my blog. The content of his email was something I couldn't ignore 'cause it's about children. Even though it looks like it's strictly a Nigerian thing, I think the spirit behind it is something we all should connect to. I am pasting it here just as I received it, and I am hoping we can all spread the word:

Make a difference this Children’s Day with Jumia.com


"As the world gets ready to mark yet another Children’s Day, your number 1 online retailer, Jumia.com has introduced a charity give-back initiative using its social media platform. “In celebrating this year’s children’s day, we at Jumia in addition to other onsite initiatives will be giving back to the less privileged children in the society using our Facebook and Twitter pages. This is an initiative that will require the support of our friends on social media, how? It starts with a like or follow on Facebook and Twitter respectively. We are very grateful to our friends who have supported the cause so far; as we speak we have already raised N5, 877 in the first day. ”, this was according to Opeyemi Adetomiwa, community manager at Jumia.com.


All it takes is for every ‘like’ on the Jumia Facebook and ‘follow’ on their Twitter pages, N1 will be donated to a charity on children’s day. SO, all you need do to put a smile on the face of that needy child this Children’s Day is to ‘like’, ‘follow’ and ‘share’ with your own friends, it’s that simple.
Click here to start ‘liking’, you could be the reason for that kids smile.

Call this my little contribution to the Children's Day celebration, with Love, Hugs, More Love and Much More Love.

Before I leave, yesterday was Mothers' day and lots of appreciations were received by mothers all over the world. What did you receive or give? I had lots of loving messages from all over some of which got me misty eyed, my brothers included... *Smiles*

Peace... I'm out!
