The Doll and a White Rose - Such A Sad Story !!!

Many a time we do encounter angels in our daily lives without realizing it !!

I was walking around in a Target store, when I saw a Cashier
hand this little boy some money back.

The boy couldn’t have been more than 6 years old.

The Cashier said, “I’m sorry, but you don’t have enough money to buy this doll.”

Then the little boy turned to the old woman next to him: ”Granny, are you sure I don’t have enough money?”

The old lady replied: ”You know that you don’t have enough money to buy this doll, my dear.”

Then she asked him to stay there for just 5 minutes while she went to look a round.

She left quickly.

The little boy was still holding the doll in his hand.

Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this doll to.

It’s the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much for Christmas. She was sure that Santa Claus would bring it to her.

I replied to him that maybe Santa Claus would bring it to her after all, and not to worry.

But he replied to me sadly. “No, Santa Claus can’t bring it to her where she is now. I have to give the doll to my mommy so that she can give it to my sister when she goes there.”

His eyes were so sad while saying this. “My Sister has gone to
be with God. Daddy says that Mommy is going to see God very
soon too, so I thought that she could take the doll with her to
give it to my sister.” My heart nearly stopped. The little boy
looked up at me and said: “I told daddy to tell mommy not to
go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from the mall.”

Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was
laughing. He then told me “I want mommy to take my picture
with her so she won’t forget me.” “I love my mommy and I
wish she doesn’t have to leave me, but daddy says that she
has to go to be with my little sister.” Then he looked again at
the doll with sad eyes, very quietly.

I quickly reached for my wallet and said to the boy. “Suppose
we check again, just in case you do have enough money for
the doll?” “OK” he said, “I hope I do have enough.” I added
some of my money to his without him seeing and we started
to count it. There was enough for the doll and even some
spare money.

The little boy said: “Thank you God for giving me enough money!” Then he looked at me and added, “I asked last night before I went to sleep for God to make sure I had enough money to buy this doll, so that mommy could give it to my sister. He heard me!”

“I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose
for my mommy, but I didn’t dare to ask God for too much.
But He gave me enough to buy the doll and a white rose.”
“My mommy loves white roses.”

A few minutes later, the old lady returned and I left with my
basket. I finished my shopping in a totally different state from
when I started. I couldn’t get the little boy out of my mind.

Then I remembered a local news paper article two days ago,
which mentioned a drunk man in a truck, who hit a car occupied
by a young woman and a little girl. The little girl died right
away, and the mother was left in a critical state. The family
had to decide whether to pull the plug on the life-sustaining
machine, because the young woman would not be able to
recover from the coma. Was this the family of the little boy?

Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the
news paper that the young woman had passed away. I could
not stop myself as I bought a bunch of white roses and I went
to the funeral home where the body of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wishes before her burial. She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white
rose in her hand with the photo of the little boy and the doll
placed over her chest. I left the place, teary-eyed, feeling
that my life had been changed forever.
The love that the little boy had for his mother and his sister is still, to this day, hard to imagine. And in a fraction of a second, a
drunk driver had taken all this away from him.

THURSDAY                                                 23. 01. 14

Count your blessings, name them one by one
Count your blessings see what God has done
Count your many blessings, name them one by one
And it will surprise you what the Lord has done

My friends
Of a truth when we count our blessings, it will surely surprise us what the Lord has done. For instance, last night after the night meal and some frills, we went to bed not knowing what the night would hold for us, even though we prayed and asked God to guard and guide us through the night, but so did millions of others and when this morning dawned, we woke up again, what miracle is greater than this? What more blessing could be bigger than this???? Not all those who went to bed last night are up this morning!, not all who even opened their eyes this morning are able to see well! Some have expired, some have transited but God has brought us back. Why did He do this?? So that we might be alive in the land of the living to proclaim His glory and to testify to His goodness.

Are you still thinking that it is by your power and might and strength that you woke up this morning? Or that it is because of the chain you have round your waist given to you by your cult or the mandarin you have hidden in your wardrobe that has powered you back, my brother there is no life in those things. Life belongs to God and no matter what else we use to “protect” ourselves, when He says it is over, then IT IS REALLY OVER. No power on earth can withstand God’s power.

Put your trust in Him. It is only Him that says and it is done.

It is Thursday people, just one more day and this working week shall be over. The fourth week of January shall be ending soon. How far have you gone with your New Year resolutions???

Are you finding it difficult to keep to your resolutions, let us help you.


God bless you real good today
Remember I love you so very much

Have a swell day today

WEDNESDAY                                             22. 01. 14

Otu o siri so Gi Chineke
Otu o siri masi Gi Jehovah
Ima mma Gi o o o
Ima mma Gi o o o
Ima mma Gi, o di ebube

Ima mma Gi o o o
Ima mma Gi o o o
Ima mma Gi, o di ebube

My friends,

Good morning this morning. I thank God that once again He woke us up from sleep and brought us back to the land of the living. We shall continually glorify His Holy Name.

It’s a brand new day even though it has an old name Wednesday but there has no such day like this before today and when it is gone, there shall be no other like it.

Today would bring new things on your table, new thoughts, new visions, new missions, new tools and implements, new friendships, and so on, but you have to be renewed in your spirit man to access these new things for if old things have not passed away, new things cannot appear.

So, how prepared are you to renew your mind?

It’s all within you. You have the ABILITY and CAPABILITY to make the changes needed to attract the new life

Today, not tomorrow

And while you do that, I shall be waiting to meet you right there at the TOP

It’s my pleasure to wish you a great day today

Be blessed of the Lord

My Lord is able
He is able
I know that He is able

Oh yes
My Lord is able
He is able
I am sure that He is able
I know my Lord is able to carry me through
For He hath seen the broken hearted

My friends

Greetings of the new day to you and this new day already has an old name and it is called Friday.

I will always and continually give praise and thanks to God Who alone made it possible for my family and I to see the light of this new day. I am certainly sure too that you and yours woke up hale and hearty. All glory must be unto the Lord.

It’s the working day for this week and I know that most of us can’t wait for the 1759 movement

Remember that this life comes with only one offer, so accept it and run with it, no dullin people

Do have a great day
Cause I am just going to have one.

THURSDAY                                                 16. 01. 14

Thou art worthy
Thou art worthy O Lord
Worthy our God
To receive glory, honour and power
And power
For Thou hath created all things
And for Thy glory
They art and were created

My Friends
Of a truth, our God is a good God.
Yes He is
If not for Him, when the accuser stood to accuse us, who would have bailed us? We would have been guilty as charged. But in His Son Jesus Christ He saved us from ourselves and reconciled us to Himself. Who then is like Him or can be compared with Him, I say nobody.

He made it possible for us to breathe the fresh breeze of this morning, it is not by our power or any other powerless power, it is only because of His love and mercies upon us.

I know because it is in Him that I move and live and have my being

Come join me.

It’s Thursday, the 2nd to the last day of this working week, it shall soon pass away and you would never be able to call it back. So if there are things you have mapped out to do today, hey go do them.

Do you have an issue with procrastination?
Call me
I am here to help you

And you have a really great day.
Cause I am going to have one

Are you going to look at your store house and move out those tubers of yams you are no longer interested in eating before they rot away?

Would you take a look at your bank account and move some money to National and International Causes through Organizations and Agencies that support such?

Would you kneel today and pray for the world that is hurting seriously?

What would you do about Nigeria?
It’s our centennial year, would you say just one positive thing about Nigeria today??

How about YOU????
Are you still in your comfort zone and expecting to win the battle?

by Dr. Jerry – the First Oguzie

Over the past year, I took judicial notice of areas of my life that I actually did not treat well and I am determined to make them better in this year 2014.
I have taken sometime to ruminate over these ideas and have mapped out my plans for 2014 activities.  I want to share them with you.
Here I am not referring to those great big projects…these are little activities than can make a huge difference to your life and enjoyment.
Each year I want to improve on the last.

So I’m gonna make 2014 my best ever…what about you?

Here are some thoughts on how to make 2014 Your Best Year Ever…

1. GO ON A DATE WITH YOUR OTHER HALF. If you are the type that does not believe in going out on dates with your significant other, it’s time to bring it on board. Spend some time with your wife, go out on dates, it doesn’t have to be expensive, a simple barbecue with an ice cream cup in a cozy garden would do. Do this at least once a week and you would be sure that your love life would blossom again
2. GET IN SHAPE. I’m not saying join a gym or start jogging. Just do a little more exercise. Maybe walk to the local shops instead of getting the car. Use the stairs instead of the lift. Along with more exercise, eat healthier. Eat only one biscuit instead of three. Eat cakes only at the weekends. Try some simple small steps.

3. MAKE CONTACT WITH AN OLD FRIEND. How many ‘friends’ have you lost touch with? Too many. I know I have. Take 30 minutes out of just one of your days each month and contact an old friend – maybe by email or Facebook.

4. CHANGE YOUR JOURNEY TO WORK. You’ll be off autopilot which means you’ll get new ideas. Taking a different route makes your brain work differently.

5. YOUR FIRST WEEK BACK AT WORK AFTER THE CHRISTMAS BREAK, get to work 30 minutes earlier and leave 30 minutes later. Use this extra hour to knock one big thing off your to-do list. Knocking things of your to-do list will reduce your stress levels, help you sleep and at the end of the week while going home, start planning how you’ll spend the pay rise you get!

6. ONLY LIST THE THINGS YOU ARE REALLY GOING TO DO AND LET GO OF THE THINGS YOU KEEP SAYING YOU ARE GOING TO DO. How many years have you said you are going to do something and never have? Write a book, learn a new language, start drama classes or learn to draw. If over the last few years you keep saying these things and you never start, you never will or will this be the year? If not, let them go and only list things your will do.

7. PLAN YOUR HOLIDAYS. What holidays will you be enjoying in 2014 and 2015. Think about them now, plan them, and book them. Have something to look forward to.

8. CHANGE THE TV CHANNEL. Start watching some of the History or Discovery channels or dare I say it…watch less TV than you did in 2013 and complete some of the other activities listed here.

9. NEVER SKIP BREAKFAST AGAIN. It is the most important meal of the day, spice it up with more protein and veggies than carbs

10. UPDATE YOUR RESUME. Even if you are not looking for a job. You never know when you are going to need it. Plus by updating it as you go, you remember all your achievements.

11. RE-ARRANGE YOUR FURNITURE. Great therapy and gives a new perspective in the room you live.

12. START YOUR OWN BUSINESS OR SHUT-UP ABOUT IT. Will 2014 be your year of starting your own business or will you just talk about it (like you have for the past 5 years). It’s your choice but please don’t just talk about it, GO DO IT.

13. Change your aftershave or perfume. Still wearing that same old smell? Get a new one, surprise the other half!

14. CLEAR YOUR DESK OF RUBBISH. Either file all the paperwork or ‘bin it’. Get a simple ‘in’, ‘out’, ‘reading’ tray. They do work. Tell everyone about your new ‘clear desk’ process. Having a clear desk can save you hours and be so invigorating.

15. GET YOUR KIDS INTO EXERCISE. I’m not talking about going down the gym or start jogging. But go swimming with them. Have a family bike-ride. Encourage them to join a local sports activity club. Take them and stay and watch them – don’t just take them, dump them and use it as a crèche while you go shopping.

16. MAKE DINNER FOR YOUR PARTNER. Leave the office early, get all the ingredients and cook!

17. RE-READ A BOOK YOU READ 10 YEARS AGO. You just never know what you might find. Also try and read at least one new book every quarter and if you have not read “Practical Steps to Total Financial Freedom” by Dr. Jerry – the First Oguzie, you need to obtain it and read it, you would just love it

18. DO SOME VOLUNTARY WORK. You’ll be helping others and it is one of the best ways to find new contacts. In 2014 volunteer for Dr. Jerry Oguzie Foundation and Trust - JOFAT

19. ORGANIZE A ‘MANS’ OR ‘GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT WITH 6 OF YOUR BEST FRIENDS. Have a good old gossip. You’ll love it.

20. INTRODUCE A NEW WORK HABIT. Talk to your customers everyday. Managers, employees who talk to customers have the advantage over those that don’t. Find out what their issues and needs are. Then, even better, be a customer. Experience what it is like to buy your business’s product – you may be surprised.

21. TALK TO SOMEONE YOU DON’T KNOW. I do this all the time! Making conversation with someone next to you in a queue will make you feel good.

22. DO A RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS on weekly basis, that child that has no mother or father, that elderly person that wants to cross the busy road, that blind person that needs a helping hand to locate his or her way. Do something for someone who will never be able to pay you back
23.  WHISPER A PRAYER FOR SOMEONE, intercessory prayers help us to take the focus from our selves to others, in praying for others we also have our own prayers heard because He Whom we pray to listens more to the heart than what the mouth says and if there’s a synchrony of the two, then it’s a done deal
24.  ALONE WITH GOD, once in every while, relocate to a remote place, where you can share with God all alone. It pays to renew your vows during such times. Such experiences are quite illuminating and inspiring, you come out refreshed to continue the race.
25.  PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK. List all your achievements (can be used to update your resume as well). This will help inform you what areas you excel in and allow you to feel great about knowing what your strengths are.

So there we are. A number of simple activities you can easily use to make your 2014 even better than 2013. Which ones will you use? What can you add?


WEDNESDAY                                                                                 01. 01. 14


What a great news!!!!
How awesome it is!!!
How incredibly unbelievable!!!!!!

That after wading through the shallow waters, swimming through the deep oceans, climbing over every mountain, jumping over all the obstacles, fording through streams, demolishing hills, and overcoming life’s challenges, we are alive to tell the tale of how we overcame in 2013.

By the testimonies of our mouths, by the belief of our hearts, by prayers poured out with tears of repentance flowing down our cheeks from our eyes, what else can we say than to thank God Who alone made it possible for us to enter into 2014.

Tell it loudly in Gath, mention it boldly on the streets of Palestine, on the highlands of Jerusalem, in the confines of the enclaves and even the conclaves, shout it from the roof tops of the skyscrapers that dot the surface of the earth, that without this God, WE ARE NOTHING and He shall be our God for ever and ever.
My people, we finally made it to New Year’s Day, it is not an end in itself, but the beginning of a new phase of life. We have another opportunity given by GOD to us to LOOK AT OURSELVES and the LIVES we are living, to see if we have a reason to be alive or are we just floating along the pathways of least resistance, to see if we can finally begin to take action on things that we have planned to do or we still continue playing the waiting game called procrastination, to see if we can make a difference in ONE PERSON’S life just because we lived, to quit being ostriches and become eagles that we are meant to be soaring over and above the clouds.

You asked for 2014, you finally have it, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH IT?
That is the million dollar question.

I can only wish you more of God in 2014.

I am very ready to do the battle of survival in 2014, ARE YOU READY??
THEN Come let’s team up and make it a more fulfilling and financially rewarding experience.

Happy New You people, MAY YOUR EVERY WISH FOR 2014 COME TRUE

I love you, more than words can express

God bless you beyond your territorial boundaries

Have a great day
