Sometimes; Body Disorder …

Sometimes the body feels too heavy for the legs and feet,
Sometimes the head feels too heavy for the neck,
Sometimes the shoes feel too heavy for the feet,
sometimes the arms feel so heavy for the shoulders,
Sometimes the fists feel so heavy for the wrists,
Sometimes the fingers feels too numb on the hands,

Sometimes, these happens,
Sometimes body parts tend to be out of order,
Sometimes they tend to scream ‘I’m not alright’

When these sometimes happen
Something may be wrong…

Loss of Somethings…

There are things of great importance,
For day to day use,
Used for various reasons,
These, one don’t wanna lose,
Their loss spell problems,
But then, comes misfortunes,
Bring about loss of things…

Commissioning Sunday…

 

Some Sundays ago, we completed the Women Of Impact Bible Study, for the first session of the year. With that done, the commissioning/graduation day for those who completed the Bible Study is the day to look forward. The ladies couldn’t wait for the commissioning date…they had been enquiring from me –since I was responsible for coordinating the BS-  about when it would be as soon as they completed the study. Unfortunately, we had to push the date a bit because of some activities, and also so as to be able to plan well for the day since it’s such a celebration.

Sunday, 29th May 2011, was the day set for the commissioning. The ladies being expected to be in the Ladies Ministry ‘uniform’ when there is a function, white top, black bottoms –skirt or pants, and blue scarf.

I had seven daughters to be commissioned and so I was looking forward to the day very much as well….I was up early, took a great deal of time to prepare myself to look sharp for the occasion…It may be just be putting on neutral colors- black and white, but….I had to do it in style…everything had to be wonderfully in place head to toe… The loveliest of white tops in my wardrobe, a nice skirt, a scarf tied in style, hair combed out and let down…..etc…and my loveliest and highest heels to complete the look….Oh I forgot to carry my zebra print handbag! A mom got to look great on her daughters’ graduation…

All my daughters looked so beautiful!

The time came for the commissioning during service and it all went well. There were almost a 100 ladies graduating. It was wonderful to have about 30 ladies from another Church where one of us has been impacting. The rest of the service went well. Thereafter very nice lunch was served.

It was a great day…all plans going well…glad to serve in the Parklands Baptist Church, Ladies Ministry- Women of Impact, and being part of an amazing ladies team…

Oh, how I thank God for that day that was….

Got One, Lost Another…

 

After realizing that my National ID was missing in the wallet while at the counter to pick my passport, I got into panic mode. ‘Where could my ID be?’, this question kept racing in my mind…even after being issued with my Passport, I was so unsettled by the thought that my ID is missing…It was so strange that all other cards were well in place in their slots but the ID missing…

I got home quite late but couldn’t sleep before I searched all over for it. I looked everywhere, no lack! Come morning, I searched for it again everywhere I place things. I’ve checked every thinkable place…My ID is no whereto be seen!! How did I loose it, when and where? I’ve tried thinking it over, retracing everywhere I’ve been; recalling when I last used it…nothing is adding up…no clue at all….

I’m so unsettled. Of all other documents that could get lost, why the ID the most important of all…It’s yet to sink that my ID is lost!

I get one and lose the other…what a predicament…Both are very much needed…

Got My Passport, No ID…

It’s been weeks since I applied for a Passport. They say the processing date is 10days but after those ten working days I went checking only to be told it’s far from being ready for collection. I went severally later, same report..’Not ready’… Politely asking about the delay, I was told that they are unable to process within those 10days because of overwhelming number of applications. I get thinking…’Shouldn’t the immigration offices do away with that statement indicating the numberof days it takes to process the passport applications?’

I went there today with the hope that it would be ready by now. Thankfully, I was told it was ready and was directed to the passport collection counter.
At that time of day, the place was so crowded. I decided to go later after class-I was having a test and that meant I’d be able to leave early-before 8pm which is the closure time at the immigration offices.

I left College around 19:30hrs for immigration offices to go pick my passport. The place was deserted compared to to the situation there during the day! Only the officials were there…handing in my receipt, I barely sat down to wait before I was called to pick it…That was like instant service!

The attendant asked for my National Id which is a requirement for one to be issued with the Passport. I didn’t have it in hand thanks to the speed at which I was served. Checking into my wallet to get it, it wasn’t there! I so panicked and couldn’t help exclaim out loud ‘Oh My! I can’t get my Id!’ The official serving me kindly asked, ‘Where could you have kept it? Did you have it during the day?’
‘I have no idea where it is…’, I replied.
At that point hd was already handing my passport to me!! Oh my! I couldn’t believe what was happening. I profusely thanked him as he said ‘Go in peace, have a nice weekend.’…Wow! What an act of kindness! What a favor from a government official!
May God bless that guz who served me so kindly.

Well, as I do this, I’m in a PSV headed home. It’s towards 22hrs, I had to wait at the bus pick up place for the fare to come down to normal. These guys are notorious at hicking bus fare to double the usual rate.

I have my passport yes, but the National ID….No idea where it could be…Don’t wanna think that I could have lost it…

Peace I Desire…

Condition of conflict absence,
State of harmony presence,
A feeling of calmness,
These somewhat defines peace,

Imperfect conditions surrounds,
Situations tune to anxious,
Away, these takes peace…

But amidst all these…

That which is peace,
All that peace is,
I wanna fully experience…

T’s PEACE, I desire…

Freely given to us,
In all it’s sufficience,
For what it does,
Gladly I receive n’ embrace,
‘ts indeed Amazing Grace…
