Going M.A.Y…

Another month is here!
April as good as over,
It’s on to May,
Bye, Bye April,
Hey May!
You are Welcome!

The way days are passing by makes one feel as if time is moving faster each new day…the fractions of seconds decrementing by the day hence making hours shorter and hence shorter days…
May is here…for the next so many days…are they 31? As I do this it’s almost minus one day…
The year isn’t getting any younger but older…and so I’m I…
What’s up with May? Here is what MAY is about to me….

Mind, heart, soul, spirit and body,
Made by You, and for You,
Amazingly formed and artfully put together,
All to you I wholly surrender…
You who is my all in all…I
Yearn for more and more of You…

Cheers! To a new month! To May 2011!

Dear May,

I hope you full of good tidings…

Easter;The Weekend That Was…

Come beginning of an year after the December Holidays loaded with Christmas festivities and culminating with ushering in a New Year, the next month most looked forward to by many is April. Here in Kenya, it’s in April that there are Schools holidays marking end of the first term of the year in most academic institutions. It is also a month looked forward to by most University Students, since in majority of local Universities; it marks the end of Second Semester, hence end of an academic year, with the Universities academic year commencing in August/September period, hence the long holidays before next year of study or completion of one’s University studies at various levels.

Besides all these, it’s the month that comes with Easter Holidays! The dates on which the Easter Weekend fall on being, I think, the most significant dates on the Christian Calendar….as they mark a significant occurrence in History of Christianity!

The Easter Weekend, the one assured long weekend in the calendar, is indeed something to look forward to….Sometime back, a friend confessed, ’On seeing a New Year’s calendar, the first thing I look at are the dates on which Holidays fall on, and I start with the Easter Weekend!’ I believe many will relate with this, they do the same….!

As is the case Easter long Weekend this year was looked forward to by many…starting on Friday 22nd April,  through to Easter Sunday, for those who are lucky, up to today Easter Monday which is a carry forward of Easter Sunday…

Anyway, the Weekend came and passed…it’s now the Weekend that was….I had nothing like grand plans to mark the Easter Holidays over the Easter Weekend. Thankfully, on Friday when I called my friend Jes to wish her a nice weekend, she offered to come visit me, and she was very welcome. We spent all afternoon having a good time together. I even cooked for us my favorite rice dish, Beef Pilau, and Beef Stew with mushroom gravy….I was so excited having her around…and God must have whispered to her to buy a bar of Chocolate among the goodies she brought with her. I had indeed missed Chocolate and even thought of how long it had been since I treated my self to Chocolate which is always such a delight.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t spend the night together since she was to be working on Saturday….All the same it was nice being with her…

There was an Easter Worship Experience at Church, though I hadn’t planned to attend, so I spent all evening at home with my God. Saturday, was a slow day, just in the house…and come Sunday, a busy day at Church. Got to Church long before 8a.m, and spent all day there, getting home way past 17hrs…

That’s the weekend that was….The Easter Weekend…It’s as good as over now…

He Is Risen…

Nastily, He was bruised,
He bled, till he could bleed no more,
In that state, death was inevitable…
Hence he died…

After the dishonor of killing Him,
Someone honored Him, with a burial,
Yes, He was buried,
To see him in the world, no more,
Or so they thought…As we know what followed…

Death, couldn’t hold Him,
He overcame death!
And left the tomb, He lay in…

Jesus rose from the dead,
Jesus is alive!!
We celebrate Jesus,
We celebrate His life,
His conquering the grave!

In His resurrection, following His death,
Was His triumph, so we rejoice!

Therefore we can sing…
‘He is Risen, He is Risen….
And He lives, forevermore….’

Resurrection Day Blessings….

Christ’s Cross…

Of well known symbols,
Is the Cross…

‘Carry your cross’…
You’ll hear it said,
With a meaning deep

Ages back
Was The Cross event
The core of Christianity
It wasn’t just another cross
But the Cross, which Christ hung
Bringing forth redemption, to human kind

Commemoration of the Cross event
The reason for the season…

When you see the Cross
Remember Christ… His agony on the Cross
That there’d be salvation, for you and me

May this Cross, be of significance to you

Have a Blessed ‘ Christ’s Cross’ Season…

Easter Is About…

It’s neither about Easter Eggs,
Nor Easter Pumpkins,
It’s neither about Easter bunnies,
Nor Easter hot-Cross buns

It’s about;
The crown of thorns,
The nails,
The CROSS….

It’s about;
Our Lord Jesus Christ ….
His Crucifixion…
Crucifying sins,
His death hence…

It about;
The Resurrection,
Of Our Lord Christ Jesus,
Into a new life

Death of sins,
Rising in righteousness

May this Easter Season,
Bring the Re-realization,
Of Christ’s agony,
On the Cross,
Hence the grace,
For forgiveness of sins

Happy Easter Holy-Holidays….

Depression is Made of This…

  • When the sun’s shining and you seem neither to see its brightness nor feel its warmth…
  • When you hear the birds singing and it sounds like noise…
  • When life’s realities become comparable to nightmares …
  • When if it’s not tears flowing in their volumes, then it’s a stinging in the eyes and they look all watery /teary
  • When you remember the verse ‘Tears are my food day and night’, you know too well how that is and how they taste…
  • When one of the most comforting verses is ‘You keep track of all my all my sorrows, You have collected all my tears in a bottle’~ Psalms 56:8
  • When there is such pain within, a pain you can’t put a finger on, but it’s there…
  • When you are so hurting and no words can explain the extent and intensity of it…
  • When you have a dizziness that won’t just leave…
  • When you just want to lie down and hope sleep takes you up to wherever it takes someone and hope not to wake up any soon
  • When you don’t want to look at yourself on the mirror, scared of seeing the dreadful look
  • When you look at your pictures of days gone and seeing the beautiful smiles and cheerful looks you wonder whether there were really such times…
  • Memories of beautiful days come to mind and you see a picture of yourself in your mind and it’s like just a sculpture of sorts…
  • When you try to do what there is to be done, but you can’t focus…concentration equals nil…
  • When you hear or see people laughing and wonder what there is to laugh about…
  • When you get to be really sad, you don’t wanna say a thing…
  • When you try to talk, no voice seems to come out..it’s like your vocal codes are gagged…
  • When nothing seems to taste good, be it food or drink…
  • When you don’t look forward to tomorrow for the pain today is bad enough already
  • When you are utterly scared of what may come to be
  • When nothing seems to make sense at all…

What to do when these and more are facts in ones life…

When all this and more along these lines is what you are going through,
It indicates something, the something being some sort of depression.
It’s good to acknowledge what you are going through; realizing there is a problem, for it’s is the first step towards healing…

What better time to come to terms with all this but this Easter Season…Taking it all to Jesus, He who is able to set free from all the chains binding, calm the storms causing these situations, get you out of these less than desirable situations that seem to be holding one down…

Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you ~ 1Peter 5:7

God cares about all that I’m going through, up to the last details, I will wait on Him. May He lead and guide me, letting me know what this is all about…is there any significance to all these?

I can only look forward to sing out the verse that says ‘He Has turned my mourning into dancing again’

There’s One Who Care…

This life here,
With challenges to bear,
May make me fear,
What lies in the future,
Be it far or near,
Which is anything, but sure…

Thus I cast all my care,
To He who hold that future,
He, who really do care…

With Him I can persevere,
He is my comforter,
Amidst any terror…
