A few disjointed notes

A friend messaged me in the early hours of the morning to ask if I still blog. I replied yes, but that simple question got me thinking till I drifted back to sleep. It has indeed been so long since I last posted, and for that, I apologise. Life got in the way and laziness also did. I am done with one phrase of my life and I’m moving on to another phrase soon. So, I cannot promise to be a consistent blogger, but I’m not abandoning this blog. In case you were also wondering if I still blog, yes! I ...

Coffee and God.

One of my weaknesses is coffee. I would sometimes take coffee, especially Cappuccino, not because I need it but because I absolutely love the smell and taste of fresh coffee. I find it refreshing in a weird way and the bitter taste of coffee (I prefer it with little cream and without sugar) just makes me happy. Café Nero decided to feed my bad habit by opening a branch on Campus. I already `frequented the place a lot before a branch was opened on campus, but bringing a branch to school just escalated how much I frequented Café Nero. Sometimes, ...

Why I believe.

Hello Beautiful people. I hope we are all doing well. I apologise for not posting last week Wednesday. I am going to make up for that by sharing a poem from my younger sister's brilliant mind. Kindly read and share this piece by the talented Oyindamola. It's a post that really should be shared, so please lets help get the message out there. You never know whose life you are turning around. ** Dear Mr Agnostic and Mr Atheist You think of us We devoted Christians As a blind flock of sheep Following the rules and principles that an ancient book set Looking up to a 'dead ordinary' ...

Is he worth fighting for?

By Wednesday, September 7, 2016 2 , , Permalink 3

I saw a tweet that a certain woman who believed in God, lived for him and wrote about him in an attempt to draw others to him recently renounced her belief in God. I am not sure of the particular reason she gave, but comments were circulating that she did because of the injustice and mental abuse she faced from a renowned pastor and also, the lack of love shown to her by the Christian community. I don’t know if that’s true, but I will use that as the basis of what I want to talk to us about. I am ...

It’s not your job to worry.

I tried to look calm. I really tried to shut the racing thoughts in my mind up. I just needed them to be quiet. I just needed peace. I didn’t want to think and at that point, it felt like my thinking faculty was an external box that was not within my control.   But it was within my control and I was letting it have control of me. My thoughts were weakening me and nothing I tried to do to put my mind at rest was working. So I opened my mouth. ‘I am worried,’ I said to my friend. She ...

You don’t have to feel good.

I do not have sufficient words to encompass the gratitude I feel for the love and commitment that was shown for Our Stories Series. I am so grateful to all the writers that contributed and the beautiful readers that not only read each post, but also shared it. I am grateful to the beautiful souls that showed more enthusiasm for this series than I probably did. I am so grateful to you Paul (Tamed designs) for helping with designs for the series even though you had a crazy amount of work load. Bless your heart love! The series was a product ...

My Story by Jeannelle

Hello!!! I hope you are remaining awesome despite all that is threatening that awesomeness. Our Stories series has not ended. Pardon me for not posting a story on Friday. Because of my failure to post on Friday, I have decided to give you a powerful story that is broken down into two this week. Jeannelle is one of those precious souls whose spoken word and writing is so deep that it either gets you thinking or it makes you take out your writing pad to write. I am very grateful that she has decided to share her story with us today. ...
