I AM SORRY

Sometimes i can be so stupid!

I think back and get so angry with myself

I just cannot tell you enough how important you are to me

It is just not fair that you have brought so much sunshine into my life

And in return i have given you rain

Please forgive me,and let's start over

I promise you i will bring you only sunshine from this day on

I am so sorry!!!

Good Deeds

Hey blogsville,I trust you'all are wonderful and having a great week. yes? I'm as cool as ever. Now let's get to today's topic:

So I was reading again the story of Tabitha(Dorcas) in the bible after so many years cuz,the last time before this one was in Religious class in Secondary school...the story became more interesting cuz,I had a more revealing understanding of who she really was. She affected the lives of those around her with her good deeds that even in death,it still spoke for her. She gave alms to the poor,made garments for widows and I'm sure they couldn't imagine life without her when she died hence,they sent for Apostle Peter.. That's exactly the kind of woman i want to be. Also the Proverbs 31 virtuous woman,did excellent works and it was said of her that; ""Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all."

Some people just can't help themselves from doing evil cuz they actually derive pleasure,from seeing people suffer.. I'll say they're weak cuz it's a lot more easier,to do wickedly than to do good.

Below,are some good deed quotes by great men:

*Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth,so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life,
one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.

Buddha

*Life is short and if you're looking for extension,you had best do well. 'Cause there's good deeds and then there's good intentions. They are as far apart as Heaven and Hell.

Ben Harper

*To be doing good deeds is man's most glorious task.

Sophocles

*Let each man think himself an act of God, His mind a thought, his life a breath of God; And let each try, by great thoughts and good deeds, To
show the most of Heaven he hath in him.

Philip James Bailey

Do a good deed today as y'all have,a great week.

Fear

For those who knows the devil for who he really is,will agree that he is a trickster,the father of lies and deceit thus,fear is just one of his many lies. 

Many are still trapped in this web called, FEAR and it has reduced them to nothingness and a life of misery but,our fears cannot overwhelm us again cuz we have hope in Christ and He has told us that, we should fear not for He is with us.. So instead of being afraid of the future and whatever it is,that has instilled fear in you,you should turn all your fears,worries and cares to the One who can replace it all with,undeniable peace.....

Avoid Unnecessary Justification

Hello blogsville,I trust you guys have been fabulous? I know I've been away for God knows how long now but,I'm fully back now and no more being an absentee blogger*winks*.. I missed you'all oo and I hope I was missed too?


Life can be very annoying at times especially,when people try to justify their devilish and heinous crimes and actions.. The Woolwich butcher got me thinking about how wicked and incomprehensible,the human mind can be. No wonder the bible said, "the heart of man is desperately wicked;who can know it"? But really,who can? There are so many crimes being committed daily against humanity and the perpetrators,always have ready answers to give as to why they did it.

Over the years,humans have always had reasons both cogent and stupid ones,for doing that bad thing they did just to take away the guilt they may feel afterwards and this,has seared the conscience of many. An instance is,most people know there is something inherently wrong with taking free money,dispossessing people of their hard-earned money,living off the government,lying,being dependent and making no contribution to the society in which they live but choose to justify their acts by,joining the bandwagon of people that say,everyone is doing it so why shouldn't I?

To compensate for this deep inner feeling of unease,people who are getting something for nothing create,elaborate justifications and rationale to explain to themselves and to others,why they are entitled to this free money. People should stop justifying their evil acts and start doing the right things..

Y'all should have a fun-filled weekend. Ciao

WAYS TO COPE WHEN TIMES ARE TOUGH

Hey friends,it's been like forever since i made a post..truth is,i've been very distant from everything lately but thank God,i'm coming around..i trust you guys have been great.. I saw a link today on twitter and decided to open it and there,i found what i'm about to share with you guys..
Challenges in life,whether trivial or tragic,personal or global are unvoidable but,we can also get through them.. reading this actually helped me and i hope it helps someone too.

Laugh

Laughter is as much of an emotional release as crying,particularly when we can laugh at ourselves. There's always humor to be found in any situation as long as you're willing to look for it. Give yourself permission to laugh,even when times are rough. Find that one isolated moment that is funny regardless of the terrible big picture..

Move on...

If you dwell on painful parts of your life,you drain your spirit with negative emotions such as anger and resentment. Let go of that baggage like a hot potato! Only then can you let new positive experiences,opportunities and people into your life. No matter what challenge you might be facing,know that nothing stays the same.your problems will eventually end..
It's easy to feel defeated and sorry for yourself when challenges in life arise,however,you can take another approach. While you may not be able to always control what happens in life,you can always choose how to react to it.

Direct your attention

Challenges can be all-consuming,and it seems the more you think about them,the worse they get. Focus on something or someone else,and you'll give your mind and emotions a needed break.. work on a hobby, go out to a movie.. It's okay to escape for a while..

Be grateful

There is always something to be grateful for in every minute of everyday,whether it's the warm sun,a phone call from an old friend or just another day of living. When you make a list of everything that's great in your life,your one problem may not seem so terrible. And remind yourself that there are people that would trade their problems for yours in an instant..

It Is Ok To Laugh

Hello blogsville,I've been away for quite sometime now due to serious activities in this month but,I'm free now so I don't think I'll be staying away this long again.... How have y'all been?hope this year has started off interesting so far? I know it's coming late but,happy new year to y'all.*smiles* now back to the topic of today...

There are lots of serious stuffs happening in the world today that, most times you wanna be happy or be in a gleeful mood,you feel guilty because,you probably have just watched the news and have seen the level of wickedness and pains people are passing through on a daily basis,or have just heard about the death of a loved one,it goes on and on..... But in the midst of all this chaos,wickedness and pains,it is still ok to laugh.

Proverbs 17:22 said, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.. When we laugh and make merry even when,we are going through the most difficult of times,we tend to shame the devil and God,will give answers to our prayers speedily... Always be happy and let your countenance be cheerful today.
