2011…Down To The Last Day…

 

Time ticked on..
Seconds into Minutes,
Minutes into hours
Hours into days
Days to Weeks
Weeks to Months

Depending on one’s calendar‘s design,
Month after the other was ticked off
Calendar pages were turned over

Three sixty four (364) days after
It’s down to the last day
The 365th day…!!
Year 2011’s last day!

It’s Goodbye 2011!

Gift That’s Time…

 

Now is time…
Between now and then is time
Between then and now is time…

You depend on time…

It’s time you have:
To Invest
To Spend
To Waste
To Save
To Pass

It’s time you:
Look forward to…
Look back on…
Look around at…

The gift that’s time…
Given by creator of time…
Is yours to manage…
What you do with it…
Time will tell…

2011…Almost Gone…

 

A little over 48 hours, and 2012 we’ll usher, (as I post this)
Bidding 2011 bye, bye is quite in order…
While at it, pausing and reflecting on the year is second nature

Looking back on 2011,
It’s been quite a Year…
One that I’ll live to remember…

There have been:
Mountains to climb
Valleys to cross
Deserts to walk-through
Races to run
People to meet
Lots of things to do…

With;
Lessons to learn
Stories to make and tell
Memories to treasure…

It’s been quite a journey to take,
Now down to:
The last ‘foots’
The last lap
The last pages
The last days…

As we sign out 2011,
Are you ready for next Year?

Don’t Despair…

 

For some things, you plan and prepare…
Eagerly you wait, but they don’t occur…

For such, do not dismiss n’ despair…
God’s timing is an important factor…

Post-Christmas…

A look at the Calendar,
The date that’s Christmas day,
Is already past…

Like any other day…
It came, hours ticked on,
Soon it was over…

To some,
It was a day special,
In more ways than one,

To others,
It was just another day…
Normal routine,
No marking it in any way…

Either way,
Christmas Day…
The Biggest Birthday….
Is a great day,
An amazing holy-holiday…

Christmas Day 2011…How It Was For Me…

 

24th December 2011late afternoon found me on my way to the office. Well, there I was headed to work, while my mind was imagining what I would be missing in the evening…The Christmas Eve Experience 2011…hours was dragging by, and to make matters worse, I was down with terrible headache which seemed to be getting worse by the minute and was feeling quite sickly…How can I fall sickly on a whole Christmas Eve whereas I have been well all year through?? At some point, I took a break, to pray that I get well, as to make it through the night. He’s Jehovah Rapha, who knows the exact diagnosis and how to fix it…Thankfully I felt better…

At clicking in of Christmas Day I was at work…the clock ticked on, couldn’t wait for morning to come…soon it was dawn, it was so refreshing to see the night sky lighting up through the window…Got busy winding up work for the night duty praying that nothing comes up that would delay me at the office past my shift time…

Thankfully, my colleague taking over shift got to the office early. Leaving the office, I hoped to catch a PSV as fast so that I could get home early…Well, I was working over night and the sensible thing to do was to go rest, but I wasn’t thinking of anything like that…rather, mind was on how I would go prepare myself and head to Church for Christmas Service, which I couldn’t imagine missing…having missed the Christmas Eve Concert.

As I went to Church, my prayer was that I would stay fully alert…you know there comes time try as one might to stay alert one fails…

Going to Church was the right thing for me to do, I got there long before service began and it was exciting right from the moment I got there, a beautiful day…and with all the ‘Merry Christmas’ salutations…

Service was so enjoyable right from the start… I didn’t even slightly doze …I just couldn’t afford that! After service, it was time to briefly meet a few of my Church friends before going back to the house…

There was lunch to be served at Church, but just couldn’t wait…I had to get home soonest, catch some sleep for soon it would be time to go to the office for me…

I got home at around 13:30hrs…and the only thing I could do was sleep….15:30hrs was to find me waking up to prepare to go to work…given the distance I have to travel to the office…

I got to the office a short while before 18hrs and that’s the time I made some tea and had it with some bread…as breakfast, cum lunch since I hadn’t had anything to eat all day…

…Work could now begin…another long night ahead…Christmas day Night at the office…

That is how my Christmas day was…

Despite all that, I’ve been so glad, I think this was the best Christmas for me…with assurance that the reason for the season is with me, I’m good…

Just me and my Lord…enough reason to be joyful…

**To you reading this, I hope you had a Merry Christmas, the way you like it…God bless you**

Christmas Day…!

 

Christmas Day 2011 is on!!
The Biggest Birthday…I Guess…

Well…go on celebrate…
Even if you don’t have ‘every reason to celebrate…’
There is one good reason to celebrate…
The reason for the season…
The reason being Jesus Christ…
The perfect gift of all times…
That gift that will always be with you…

I pray, the joy and gladness of Christmas fill your heart…

Remember the Gift of Christmas is always with you
