We are into it together
You say your heart is breaking ? Mine is breaking even more. Confused like you about what to say to God today. He listens whenever I cry to Him. But this time around, it's like He didn't listen. For a good reason all the same, I know. Sometimes i am tempted to ask if He is there. There is no doubt about it. He is there. And His ears are widely open. I know He knows how I feel right now and how you too feel. We will all get over it. Let's keep asking Him for strength and that will be granted.
The vissicitudes of this life ! Many times you ask yourself whether it is worth all the painstaking efforts to toil and toil the way we do. Just to be blown off one fine day from all we have toiled to amasss, like the wind blows off a piece of dry leaf. Far far away to an unknown destination.
How we all wished we could live forever, when we taste the honey side of life.
I miss my greatly loved brother and friend who is gone as much as you do yours Lola. . . .

Shake it Off
Today’s society is plagued by shattered marriages. From East to West, North to South of the entire globe, the stories are similar – shortlasting marriages (think of the Kim Kardashian and Chris Humphries marriage that lasted 72 days), wife abandoned by husband or husband abandoned by wife, father not caring for his children, leaks on cheating hubby or wife, scandal on public personalities abusing young girls to be stunk by a divorce note on arriving home, and it goes on and on. Looks like the marriage world is turning upside down. Is that why many are resorting to scary marriage choices whose consequences they damn ?
The devil is shifting its workshop from idle minds to marital homes. Watch TV testimonies of those whose marriages are delivered from his grip. Spirit husband, spirit wife attack is the chorus. This is what teleguides the marriages and at the surface we attribute the failures t . . .

ISLANDE: Looking younger as she grows older ALL NATURAL, . . .
For Audrey, My Ghanaian Friend
I left my country Ethiopia not knowing what was the real purpose of my trip. Things were falling apart in all aspects of my life. I rushed into a plane for the so called land of milk and honey. For months being there I drank ‘vinegar’ for milk and licked my very ‘sweat’ for honey.
Then one day, I met this Ghanaian friend Audrey whose fine words of “all will be well, this is how America torments everyone at the start,” quenched my worries and fears. “You don’t know how it works in this land ?” she asks. “How, please tell me.” I was curious. “Your countrymen haven’t told you the secret to survival here ?” I replied that “they too claim to know nothing, even those I know that have been around for sixteen years.” And then she went ahead to reveal the secrets of success in what she called “this land of dracullas . . .
