Kindness is an act that always has a resounding effect. Often times, kindness is a spontaneous act. The thoughts come off just like that and we find ourselves doing little things for others. 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.

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.

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
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
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
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
Peace and Love!
