When You Were Here..A Tribute…

When you were here,
We planned each tomorrow,
With you in mind,
For we saw no parting,
Looming beyond the horizon

When you were here,
We joked n’ laughed together,
No fleeting shadow of a ghost,
Ever crossed our paths

Day by day we lived,
On this side of the world,
There was never a sign,
That your hours were running fast

Suddenly,
You were gone….

When you were gone,
Through glazed eyes we searched,
Beyond the mist n’ the shadows,
For we couldn’t believe you were nowhere,
We couldn’t believe you were gone,
Couldn’t believe you were dead!

You were ours,
You died.

Nine(9) years now,
You’ve been gone,
Memories of you,
Fresh in our minds,

With great love,
You molded our young lives,
We remember all moments,
Spent with you

It’s a great understatement,
To say we miss you,
God’s grace help us endure,
Pain of you absence,

We believe you are resting in peace…

If only you were here with us….

(All these years on your girls, Shiro Joy, n’ I, are all grown now. How we wish you were here, so we share this phase of our lives with you, dear mom. We love you so.
A loving mother,aunt,daughter, sister,friend n’ more you were. You are dearly missed by many. As for Joy n’ me, you meant the world to us. We’ll always love you, n’ cherish memories of the times we had)

Bible Study Season 9…Completed…

 

Sunday 4th September, season 9 of Women of Impact(WoI) Bible Study at Parklands Baptist Church began, after the registrations period.It would run for at least the next seven Sundays to come, as WoI B/S leaders/Moms and daughters go through the studies…

Sunday 23rd October, was the eighth(8th)Sunday, the start Sunday inclusive, when my family got to be on the last study.
Come today Sunday 30th October, we decided to do a recap of one of the study which had been covered during what we call Combined B/S Sunday, when our Patron leads B/S with all members together…It’s always nice to have a smaller group discussion/ sharing time…
With that, I could say we’ve completed the Bible Study….Thus I celebrate being a Women of Impact mother again…

We’ve had a great time over the B/S period, albeit with challenges like my daughters being late for B/S, some missing some classes…We’ve to organize for make up classes for those who missed some classes….and some having to drop out of B/S because of unavoidable circumstances.

Besides the challenges, the most important part have been the studies impacting on each one of us in various ways. I pray that that impact be to impart and impact on others…as our motto is ‘Each one, Reach One…’….Or more…do I add…

This time round, I have eight(8) daughters who’ll be on the Women of Impact Graduation list!
To God be the Glory…It is so great to be a mom…The Graduation day for my daughters is a day to look forward…can’t wait…

Tears of…

Tears of loss,
Tears of pain,
Tears of hurting,
Tears of uncertainty,
Tears of frustrations,
Tears of helplessness,

Call them, tears of adversities…

These, I too well know…
More than familiar, they are…

I hear of tears of joy…
Those, I long to shed…

It Would Be Red…

It’s dazzling and lovely…
Seemingly brightens one up any time…

Red…
The color I’ve so come to love…
It looks Good on me…
I’d wear it for days…even through a month…
Quite daring though…

Vegetables…

 

Some are bitter, some sour,
Others come across as tasteless…
Barely are they classified as ‘tasty’…
Yet they top ‘healthy foods’ list

Despite their known health benefits
By many, they are avoided…

Vegetables….Greens….they are…

Well…
Like them…I may not…
But…
I know they are important…
Hence…
I try eat them…in their varieties…
I’ve learn….
To prepare them in a way..
That…
Makes me wanna have more and more…

Cheers to vegetables…!!
Especially the Leafy Greens…

I borrow a leaf from Daniel…an inspiration to have more of vegetables…

Daniel 1:12,13
12 “………….Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. 13 Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.”

Something About….

 

You neither tire, nor get bored of it
Time and again you’ll go through it
Reading word by word taking it in
Food to the soul and all, it is…
It’s refreshing, uplifting, strengthening…
Engulfing one in some sort of air

There’s something about a love note…
Or one supposed to be so…

Small Into Big…

Like pebbles thrown into a pond
Wide n’ for long,ripples spread
Are things considered small acts
But results in great effects…
Small into big…
