Spontaneity is a good way to show kindness. And it could be anything. Random acts of kindness just come to you at the moment when the opportunity arises and this could be anywhere and with strangers.

Random Act Of Kindness…!

Humans often times take for granted just how powerful a simple act of kindness can be and the far-reaching effect it can have.

Money is not everything. And we don’t need to see giving as always parting with money or cash. No.

We can be wealthy with little or no money from simple gestures. Continue reading

They Come For A Reason…!

When you know which one it is, you will know what to do with that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. Continue reading

Good Morning World.

Sometimes you begin to wonder if the people you surround yourself with still love you. You ask yourself why they no longer communicate like they used to. And you begin to imagine all kinds of reasons why they appear to have changed.

Often times, it’s not that these people don’t love you. No. The reason is likely to be far from that. Sometimes people are drowning in different challenges. Languishing in different traumatic situations. Going through relationships issues et al. Continue reading

The Sunday Routine!

It’s another signal that the day has come

As the metal bell continues to reverberate

Like the voice of a thousand cries

Mingled with the melodic clanging

That echoed all through the countryside

Nearby, are the hurried steps of the weekly enthusiasts?

Clad in the finest of their Sunday apparels

The Reverend sat in the Vestry

With his hands clamped on his knees

Awaiting the tick of time for the benediction

He looked regal in his long robe

***************

It’s 10 0’clock and the cathedral is filled to the brim

The backside of the gigantic edifice parades heads of late-comers

Standing whispering subtle inaudible expressions

On the front row are empty seats

But no one dare rest their butts on these sacred spaces

Clearly inscribed on them were the revered words – Reserved.

For the knights and the affluent who fuel the gospel

***************

Ahhhh, Nkiru sat between the two aged women

In her usual demeanour of a saintly child

She raised her head skyward

And with hands clasped together, she begins to whisper

Oh Lord she begins

Oh Lord, teach me your words

Teach me in kindness

Teach me in love

Oh Lord, help us to learn your ways

Ignite the power of love among your People

Give us the divine impulse to show your love

So that the world will dine less in wickedness

So that your children will shed their evilness

And sheath the sword of hatred and violence

Oh Lord, give us a new heart of friendship

Of humbleness and compassion and of gratitude

To know that we are your children

Born to show love to one another

Born to sow the seeds of affability

And of good deeds

Oh Lord, protect our world

Protect our families

And make us prosper in your righteousness

Oh Lord, answer our prayers

And bless us beyond our words

Amen.

Peace and Love!
