There's Still Fire On The Mountain.

The first thought I had this morning was, I want more sleep! Obviously. 

But the second was a realization that the dust is settling down, the protests have thinned out, the hashtags have run out, the voices have become strained, the incident is fast becoming a vague memory. Yet our girls still aren't back. 

I watched as someone would from behind a curtain and almost dissociated myself from it all. One reason being that it stank of politics, second was that there's so much at play that the average Nigerian isn't privy too, and third was the fact that..oh well, at least they stay within their own home land and do this to their own breathren. But this morning I woke up and I wondered, how have the girls been coping, are they being fed, how are they spending the long hours of the day, what horrors are they being subjected to, how many have been raped, how many have been gang raped, have their families lost hope and given up, do they spend hours all night holding vigils for their daughters, how do their mothers feel. But what troubles me most is the horrors these girls may be subjected to on a daily basis.

So in my own little way, on this morning I cry out to God for the speedy return of the Chibok girls. It was almost easy for me not to give it much thought but I put myself in the shoes of those directly involved just for a second and my heart broke. 

Good morning guys. Have a blessed day ahead and remember to say a prayer for the Chibok girls. 


  1. i feel ur pain thelma cos am a mom too. I say a prayer for them too...besides am a first timer in here......that naughty house wife...

  2. I had a talk with my hubby on this issue because I kept wondering how their lives will be when they are eventually rescued. (I believe they will be). Some suicidal, some pregnant, some infected with STIs, STDs or HIV. What their state of mind will be like? Will they get married? Who will want to marry them? (knowing fully well what their past was) Will anyone commit suicide? (as it has become a frequent occurrence here in Nigeria). Surely, they are just victims of circumstance and some of them must have resigned themselves to fate. I pray God does His wonders concerning this situation. Forgive me for thinking of the worst case scenario but what scares me most is life after rescue. Lots of counselling and prayers. #Enjay#

  3. All I can think about right now is: RESCUE THEM 1st to the Govt & PLS RELEASE them to BH...
    We'll deal with the aftermath.

    I've always been an advocate of "when I get to the bridge, i'll cross it". Cos I always have the strength to FIGHT.

    When they are released, we'll figure out how to deal with their health & Psychology. Freedom First...

  4. Rape and any sort of emotional/ physical abuse is generally the begin of a decline in anyones life. It takes a lot to come up from it.

    My prayer for these girls is that they find peace after this horrible ordeal. I have minimal faith that the Nigerian government will rescue them.

  5. "..the hashtags have run out, the voices have become strained, the incident is fast becoming a vague memory.."; the typical Nigerian trait, unfortunately. And if it wasn't a regular headline in the big news networks around the world, it would've been extremely worse. You'll notice that the government only started to show real concern after "international eyes" focused on Nigeria after the Chibok tragedy. The normal trend before that was party politics and politicking, barely 24 hours after boko haram had struck. May GOD have mercy on us.

  6. Thank you for that reminder, we shouldn't forget them, we shouldn't go quiet. Lets continue to pray for them.

  7. I think about those Chibok girls everyday. I pray they're brought to their homes alive and healthy. I pray God heals their hearts and minds.

  8. The level of care in the Nigerian society is close to zero, I can only pray and hope that God will heal the girls.
    We are not even sure what is going on with their rescue, not that we want the strategies revealed but there has to be some kind of update; they are not goats for God's sake!

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
