Being vs. Doing…

being vs doing

When we were much younger some of my siblings walked on their toes. My grandparents, uncles and aunties all had fun saying to them to put their feet down. LOL!!! Just the memory of it has me in stitches. Not sure if it was a paternal or maternal legacy but it was passed on to us anyway. As they grew older, they stopped tip toeing and retained a slight bounce in their steps. But it was cool, nothing to worry about really. The very obvious tip toeing was done or was it?

A few weeks ago, I saw a video of my niece walking on her toes, exactly like my sister used to and I heard my sister saying to her to put her feet down just like my mum used to. I laughed until my sides hurt. It felt like a very ‘de javu’ moment...

Hearing God…

hearing God 1

Yesterday, I got asked this question: “How would you know God doesn’t approve of the person you’re dating? Hi , can you write on this? Would help a lot of people out there.”

My response is not really relationship advice in itself. It is a little broader as it regards how to know whether or not God approves of our choices. Like marriage, there are important choices we need God’s perspective on as we live our lives and so it is important to not a few of us to be sure that our choices are aligned with His. Infact, the more we grow in Him, the more important His opinion becomes. The idea is not to even choose and ask Him to bless. It is to ask Him to lead us to choose. Kinda like the carpenters rule of ‘measure twice, cut once…’

First, let me begin by saying that God is a good, good fa...

Make that call!!!

access 1

When we were kids, we had a PABX line. This meant that we had access to all our immediate neighbours via the line but we had to call the switchboard to make external calls to NITEL lines and they billed our home monthly.

Sometimes, an operator called in sick and just a few were left to man the desk so you could call over and over before you reached an operator. Sometimes, it was a grouchy operator took our calls and at other times, it was almost lunch time or close of their shift. Anyway, we quickly learned that the operator’s mood impacted how quickly our calls were transferred to the main switchboard even if the lines were free. It was obvious from how quickly our mum’s calls were made sometimes relative to ours that who we were also mattered...

Chuck it out

trash it

I used to be a shirt person and for a long time my work wardrobe was majorly shirts and suits. I collected work shirts in different colours and styles until I recently lost interest and gave most of them away. I started feeling more like work dresses and blouses and slowly my work wardrobe changed.

However, I woke up on Monday feeling like wearing a shirt, so it was that I looked through my wardrobe and found one. It was a sky blue striped shirt that had been ironed and folded and was seating neatly in a corner. I remember wondering why I had not even thought to wear it all this while. Without hesitation, I put it on, it fit perfectly and reminded me of my shirt era. I tucked it into a navy blue skirt, looked myself in the mirror and liked what I saw...
