Sunday Morning...






I really cannot explain the peace and joy I feel within me. Life isn't perfect and things aren't perfect either, but despite all that may be wanting, I realize one thing; I'm blessed, I'm fortunate and I'm doing much better than I was in the past. 

Nothing bothers me much these days, it's a kind of peace that only God can give. I'm at peace guys, I can't even explain this. 

I've got love, I'm constantly being showered with so much love, either here on the blog, my mailbox, from my friends, a few love interests, my siblings and my parents. I can't even complain. 

I've got a future that's filled with possibilities. For the first time in my life I have something that I've never had and that is vision. This is God's own work. For years, before all else what I've asked God for is vision. I need it more than money, success, a man or friends. And somehow God has finally blessed me with this. Of course I need certain other things to go ahead with what I have, but then I have the most important thing, so I know I have it all; God. 

I thank God for the gift of a light heart. I think that comes with generally having good intentions towards others and carrying no bitterness in my mind. This is why I wondered how some people sleep at night (apparently some don't have an issue with bearing all the grudges in the world, they can sleep and snore soundly. LOL). But basically I'm thankful for a light heart. 

I thank God for my blog readers. I don't mean to be cheesy or corny but I do pray for us all. 

I pray most especially for those in a dark place; may God fill your lives with light so bright and make you smile again. May your laughter be so loud and pure that it compensates for all the pain of the past. 

I pray for the single ones among us, hoping and waiting for their life partners; may love find you, may God connect you with your partners and flush out every time-waster from your life. 

I pray for those suffering from broken hearts. May God heal your wounds, comfort you and sooth your wounded hearts. I pray that at the right time, and with the right person, you'll find love. 

I pray for the unemployed among us. Dear Lord please do the needful. And even while they wait for that long awaited job, open their eyes and minds with ideas that can bring about self-employment or creation of their own wealth. 

I pray for those who are crying in their marriages. Almighty father is there anything too difficult for you? That's a rhetorical question, I already know there isn't. Lord take control, restore love, peace and happiness to marriages that have lost the promises they once had. 

I pray for those believing in You for the fruit of the womb. You said none shall be barren, therefore Lord, none shall be barren. Amen. 

I pray for the sick; the physically and mentally ill. Heal them dear Lord. 

I pray for all those who have reached out to me with love and kindness, who carry good intentions for me in their hearts. Dear daddy, these ones make me want to cry, they fill me with so much joy; who am I? They have no idea how much they do for me. I'm nobody before you Lord, yet I'm your child so I ask; bless them dear Lord, fulfill their hearts' desires. For the smile they have given me, Lord bless them with dance and laughter a thousand times over. Amen. 

I was only going to thank God but there's no harm in praying, right? 


I know times are hard and things may not be working in our favour at the moment, yet we've all got something to be thankful for. Please share, ok? Your thanks may just be the encouragement that the next person needs. 



Have a blessed Sunday guys!

    I fall into 2 categories, the single & jobless *well, there are guys who say they need me & jobs being offered to me* BUT none of these men fear U enough & none of these jobs will let me serve U like I desire. So, Jehovah, Do the needful for my heart desires that are in accord with ur purpose for my life & ur divine name...

  6. Amen to your prayers Thelma. I've learnt to always speak positively about every situation/problem I am faced with..The Holy Book says when there's a casting down,(thou)"I" shall say there's a lifting up (job 22:29) meaning we should always speak positivity into every negativity no matter the situation..that said,I am so thankful to God 'cos I know I'd get my dream job before the year runs out,I am thankful 'cos I know he'd perfect all that concerns me maritally,financially and otherwise,importantly,I am thankful for good health,provision and divine favour.

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

Shhhhhhh....

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!
