After All Is Said And Done...

Hello everyone,

I had a good weekend and I suppose you all had one too. Anyway, I want to share a little "something" with you today. Please read and answer as many of the questions as you can.

A wise man once said, "when a baby is born, everyone around is happy but the baby cries".

So, I am thinking it should be the other way round whereby when we die, everyone around cries but we will be smiling and happy being in the bosom of Jehovah.

I am inspired to write this post based on my bible study this morning.

After all has been said and done, how are we going to be remembered here on earth? How will our work on earth be measured? Are we going to be remembered with a good or a bad tag?

Life here on earth is a short one and should be lived in such a way that when we are gone, our legacies and foot prints can be followed. I beseech everyone to be conscious about the things we say and do on earth because whether good or bad, God will bring all to judgement.

To live a just and principled life is not easy, but by grace of God, plus our prayers and supplications to Him, we will get through the challenges of the life somehow.

Finally, let us remember that this world is not our home. We have a permanent home which has been prepared for us by our Lord Jesus Christ. So, let us always live our lives in preparation for our biggest day with our God, among the angels and the 24 elders. 

What a great feast that will be! Love you all.

Peace... I'm out.

These Floods Again?!!!

Hello everyone...

Today, I write with a heavy heart. Almost the whole of Accra (the capital of Ghana) is flooded and it is terribly sad.

A lot of people have been rendered homeless, parents are screaming and searching for their lost kids. Read a friends update on FB today and he said the president should call for a state of emergency. Do you agree? Even if he does, will (calling a state of emergency) solve the problem knowing the rains will not stop falling? I think we need a very pro-active government structure all over Africa. A structure that does not have to wait for people to die before decisive actions are taken to deal the menace of floods in our cities. We have ministries and government organisations which are supposed to take care of issues like this. Can we not plan ahead of the next rainy season in order to make sure that the events of this year do not re-occur?

A number of people have been reported dead including this sweet friend of mine on FB...


These are a few pictures I got. Please see and estimate for yourself the amount of damage and loss this flood left behind. Thank you for reading.

NB:- I should have done this post yesterday but my internet was messing up. Thanks to HoneyDame who dropped a mail to check up on me. I'm soo grateful girl... God bless you!

Peace... I'm out.

Saying The Final Goodbye Is a Tough Thing To Do...

Dear Blogville...

A friend told me something yesterday and since then, anytime I think about it, I get misty eyed. He lost his Mum... Just one look at him and you will see a devastated, shattered, lost and an "all alone" person (same way I felt when I lost my Mum some years ago).

Here is a guy who has sacrificed so much in order to save his mother's life (used his school fees to pay for her medical bills; borrowed money from friends and his work place in order to pay medical bills; had to break up with his girlfriend who was constantly complaining he didn't have enough time for her just so he could be there for his mum; had to forgo lectures most times in order to be there for her... I could go on and on and on.

But one thing I do know out of my own experience, is that when everything seems blur and lost, when your soul is so afraid and you think all is lost, that is when you have lean on God totally and completely and He will come in and help you find your way. He has done it for me and I know He will do it for my friend and every other person out there that needs to crutch on a life wire.
Here is wishing him all the strength he needs at this present time of his life. 

Peace... I'm out.

We have Been Called to Finish The Course!!!

So the weekend is over and work resumes with an extra kind of pressure that comes with Mondays. I had a wonderful weekend and I trust you all had the same too.

I am reading a very interesting book right now by Dr.Mensah Otabil (A Popular Pastor in Ghana) titled "Anointed to Start and to finish", got to a part that I am loving so much, so I took the following excerpts from the book to share with you my lovely readers. So as always, please read, enjoy and above all share your views and thoughts.

According to the book, there are four qualities that will help us to stay on course as well as finish the race to receive the desired crown. And these are :
  • Focus: this is the concentration of all one's energies on the most important things in life. at every point, we must decide what the most important project or assignment in our life's are.
  • Endurance: this is also another important requirement for long distance running, because pursuing a good dream requires patience and continues application in order to get the desired results needed.
  • Hope: this is seeing a positive picture of the end result of one's effort. It is the expectation and the anticipation that keeps us going even in the face of adversity
  • the last on the list is determination: this is the will power and the strength of mind that it takes to pursue a dream to the end.
This is the song that a determined heart or person with a lot of determination sings always;
**If I can't fly. I will run, 
If I can't run, I will walk 
If I can't walk, I will crawl. 
whatever it takes, 
I will drag myself across the finish line**

We have all been called to start and to finish a race or a course, it is not enough to lay a foundation and proceed to build on it. It is not enough to start a race well and open a considerable gap over your competitors. It is not enough to go buy foodstuffs, prepare food and place it before you. It is the completion of the building , the finishing of the race or eating of the food that brings ultimate satisfaction.

I pray that our hands will be strong enough to complete the work we have began or will begin and also may our set dreams and visions be accomplished in Jesus name Amen. Thank you for reading...

Peace I'm out

On the day of the baby's funeral, the aunty of the lady crying uncontrollable kept saying, I knew it! I knew It!! The curious relatives then asked her what it was that she knew. In response to their query, she said... I knew it!!! I knew that "CHINA PRODUCTS" do not last! lol. It's just a joke o!!! Please if you must site this joke, tell them it is a joke o! i still would like to travel to China one of these days. lol
Wish you all the very best of the weekend and the best of wishes too. Cheers everyone.

We Run Things Part 1 - Women are not as Foolish as men think

Hey Blogville!

I have been taking stock of a few stories that catch my attention and compiling them to expose in my little way, the realities of our lives, both the ones that make you laugh and the ones that make you cry; plus the ones like the instant case, which show that when it comes to "running things", the women... Yes the women take the front Guys, you are free to bring on a debate about this to the platform (if you

There was a man, who had worked all his life, saved all the money he could, but still was a real miser of a man. 

Just before he died, he said to his wife...'When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me.' (can you imagine!!!) He got his wife to promise him with all of her heart, that when he dies, she would put all of the money he ever made into his casket. But before you sit and wonder what kind of woman would be foolish enough to make such a promise, just read through to the very last part of the story.
When he died, he was stretched out in a casket. His wife was sitting there - dressed in black, and her best friend was sitting next to her to offer the necessary consolation. When they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, 'Wait just a moment!' She had a small metal box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and they rolled it away.
So her friend said, 'Girl, I know you were not foolish enough to put all that money in there with your husband.' The loyal wife replied,
'Listen, I'm a Christian; I cannot go back on my word... I promised him that I was going to put his money into his casket and bury him with it.'
You mean to tell me you put all that money in the casket with him!?!?!?' Her friend asked in absolute bewilderment.

'I sure did' said the wife. 'I got it all together, put it into my account, and wrote him a cheque...
If he can cash it, then he can spend it. Now isn't that just a wise woman? lol
From all my ladies to our "men", just want you to know that 'we run "things", we do not allow "things" to run us" lol.

Gosh!! I am so tired, cant wait for the weekend to be here.
cheers everyone. By the way, this is not my story. It is one of the stories I am compiling for this series. A friend emailed it to me, and I thought I could share the elating feeling it gave me with you, by getting you to read it here as well. I just edited it a little to suit the present
Peace... I'm out.
