When Every Thing Goes Wrong, Remember This One Thing




Three Things to Remember รข€“ Mother Jones



I visited my friend’s office, and there I saw a framed entry from his grandmother’s journal, dated September 16, 1977. It reads:

"Today I’m sitting in my hospital bed waiting to have both my breasts removed. But in a strange way, I feel like the lucky one. Until now I have had no health problems. I’m a sixty-nine-year-old woman in the last room at the end of the hall before the pediatric division of the hospital begins. Over the past few hours I have watched dozens of cancer patients being wheeled by in wheelchairs and rolling beds. None of these patients could be a day older than seventeen."

He told me that the journal entry is displayed in his office because it continues to remind him that there is always, always something to be thankful for.


And that no matter how good or bad we have it, we must wake up each day thankful for our lives, because someone, somewhere is desperately fighting for theirs.

I was recently at a birthday party to celebrate the thirty-fifth birthday of a friend’s childhood best friend. Four years ago, she was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer—devastating news for anyone, and especially for someone so young. Thankfully, she’s now in remission and has been cancer free for the past two years. When we were at lunch, she told us, “I am loving my thirties so much more than my twenties. I’m more confident, I know what I want out of life, know what my capabilities are. I know that life is limited, and that I only get this one life, and I’m doing my best to make the best of each and every day.”

Hearing those words from her was remarkable, because it showed how her perspective on the situation allowed her to view a horribly difficult time as an opportunity to understand what she wanted out of life.


Her example reminded us that happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to use them as opportunities to change your perspective for the better.

Think about your own life. What joy and opportunities might you see more clearly if your mind weren’t holding on so tightly to your struggles and disappointments?

Remember, it’s not what the world takes away from you that counts; it’s what you do with what you have left.

Truth be told, inner peace begins the moment you take a new breath and choose not to allow an uncontrollable event to dominate you in the long-term.


You are not what happened to you.
You are what you choose to become in this moment.

Let go, breathe, and begin again...

Happy Mothering Sunday






Today is being observed all over the Anglican Communion as the Mothering Sunday.

A day set aside to honour women and mothers both at home and in Israel

What better language can we use today to describe our Mothers, Wives, Sisters and Aunties if not that given by the Holy Spirit Himself as recorded in Proverbs Chapter Number 31 from verse number 10

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life
She seeketh wool and flax and worketh willingly with her hands
She is like the merchants' ship, she bringeth her food from afar
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens
She considereth a field, and buyeth it; with the fruit of her hands, she planteth a vineyard
She girdeth her loins with strength and strengtheneth her arms
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good; her candle goeth not out by night
She layeth her hands to the spindle; and her hands hold the distaff
She stretcheth out her hands to the poor; yea she reacheth her hands to the needy
She is not afraid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scarlet
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple
Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the Elders of the land
She maketh fine linen and selleth it and delivereth girdles unto the merchant
Strength and honour are her clothing, and she shall rejoice in time to come
She openeth her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law of kindnes
She looketh well to the ways of  her household and eateth not the bread of idleness
Her children arise up and call her blessed, her husband also and he praiseth her
Many daughters have done virtuously but thou excellest them all
Favour is deceitful and beauty is vain but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised
Give her of the fruit of her hands and let her own works praise her in the gates

May the good Lord continue to bless the virtuous women in our lives starting with my Lady - ObyJerry Oguzie, my Sister Lolo EudyMark - KenWuche and all the others too numerous to mention.

Happy Mothering Sunday

#Explorers Wanted!!!!






Hello People

March is here

The month of March, the one after February and before April, the 3rd month of the year has finally arrived; when it ends, we would have used up 90 days of the allotted 365 days of this year 2018.

What were your new year resolutions?
What is that one goal you want to achieve in this 2018?

What did you do with January?
What did you do with February?

What are you going to do with March?

Now while I acknowledge the overarching influence of the Supreme Being in the affairs of men but don't tell me that everything is in God's Hands, if that be the case, He would not have given you hands too.

He gave you hands because He has also placed some things in your own hands, what are you doing about those things God has placed in your Hands?

Or are you waiting for Him to do His Own and also do your own???

But you know that is "impossicant" (in the voice of Zebby)

When your hands begin to move, at the point it gets exhausted and tired and about to drop, God takes over - that is how He works ever since creation.

But if you are UNWILLING TO MOVE YOUR HANDS, God is not going to flog you and force you to move those hands of yours.

Are you getting my drift?

In exploring, we use our eyes, our hands and our feet
