Happy Mother’s Day!


Once a mother, always a mother. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers around the world, but most important, to my mother.
Thanks, mama for the nine months you have carried me. Thanks for all the sacrifices you have made.
Thanks for the love, the warmth, and the care you have given me. I can still remember cuddling up in your lap when we were at church or one of our neighbor’s house.
When I was hungry, you fed me. And when we were down to the last slice of bread, you would break it into halves; one half for me, one half for my brother and nothing for you.
You were my eyes when I could not see. You carried me when I could not walk. Thanks for the values you have passed on to me.

‘When Breath Becomes Air:’ a dying doctor’s memoir teaches about love and loss


Dr. Paul Kalanithi read the CT scan. He could clearly see tumors matting the lungs and deforming the spine. As a resident in neurosurgery in his final year of training at Stanford, he’d seen plenty of such scans before. But this time, the scan was his own.

New day, New beginning


Happy New Year everybody!

024“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was at the beginning with God. All things have been made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:1-5).

I would like to take a little time to thank all of you for your continued support of this blog. You guys have been simply awesome–beyond measure.

Even though we may not always agree on every point; we treat each other with respect. I wish the greater society on the whole would take a page out of our books.

I pray that the God of Abraham will continue to inspire you to inspire and lead others to Christ.

Happy Mothers’ Day–World


Motherday4-

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2: “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. Time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.”

Today people around the globe pause…to tell Mom thanks. Thanks Mom for all you have done and continue to do. Today is your day, soak it and enjoy yourself if you can.

May God bless you this day and forever?

 

What are you most thankful for (today)


1 Chronicles 16:8

King James Version (KJV)

Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.

What are you most thankful for (today)?
It is another Thanksgiving Day, and as usual, I am excited. All across America people are visiting family and friends to celebrate the big day. There is going to be lots of eating and drinking and merrymaking.

But, amidst all that eating and drinking, I encourage you to pause awhile and think about how fortunate we all are to live in the USA. Despite of its problems, and there are many, it is good a time as any to be an American.

Naturally, It would not be Thanksgiving Day if I did not put a ‘thank you’ list together. There are so many things to be thankful for. The world would run out of paper and ink by the time I am through jotting down my blessings. Nevertheless, number one on my list is “spared life.”

I thank God for keeping me alive. Being alive with all my faculties intact means I have another chance to prepare for the Bridegroom. God has given me more than my fair share of chances to prepare for His appearing. Therefore, if He comes today and I am not ready; I have no one to blame but myself.

I thank God for my family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, my employer, and all those people whom I come in contact with on a daily basis. And last but not least, you, my friends in the blogosphere. You mean more to me than you will ever know. I pray the good God above will continue to bless and keep you.

Happy Thanks Giving! God blesses.

Even when we were down to the last slice of bread, you would break it in halves, one half for me, one half for Errol and nothing for you. You were my eyes when I could not see. You carried me when I could not walk. Thanks for the values you have passed on to me.Thanks mama, for making me feel special. Words cannot express how grateful I am that God had chosen you to be my mother. I am not much now, but I am who I am because of you and I am proud..Thanks
