A Father’s Joy

As a child, I sometimes thought my parents were taskmasters. LOL!!! You know how you hear your name all the way in your bedroom from the living room and it’s to pass them the remote  which by the way is sitting next to them or to come open the door for a guest when they… Continue reading A Father’s Joy

The PT I know…

It’s amazing, the realisation that PT is 60!!! I remember when it struck me fully in the first half of 2016 that he was knocking on 60’s door, I could not believe myself. Suddenly, all I could see was a man who chose to be impactful regardless of the generation. So I am here to… Continue reading The PT I know…

Welcome to 2017

Happy New Year Y’all, I’m so glad we made it through 2016. One thing that has been on my mind is to start  ‘doing what I know.’ Often times, we know so much and do so little. For me, this is the time to stop accumulating more knowledge without application especially because I know the… Continue reading Welcome to 2017

Legacy vs. Inheritance

A few days ago I was reading a piece by Sam Chand and here is an excerpt: “People get those things confused. So I want to clarify it for you today. Inheritance is what you leave behind.

#LOUDIT: Trusting His Heart

You know how you watch a friend journey through life and share somewhat in the highs and lows so much so that you feel like you could write an Oscar winning script out of it? That’s exactly how I feel about my friend Pearl and the amazing story God is writing with her life. I… Continue reading #LOUDIT: Trusting His Heart

What’s on your dashboard?

I was driving over the past weekend and my dashboard lights came on showing ‘Low Tyre pressure.’ I am able to drive several miles with the warning light on until I get to a vulcanizer. Usually, when I get to one, they have to gauge all the tyres to discover which exact one is low… Continue reading What’s on your dashboard?

Choose to enjoy your transition…

LOUD IT: Faith in the Faithfulness of God

I had just joined the choir and was still a little lost in the crowd. We had finished choral recitals that day when some lady stood up and wanted to make an announcement. With a shy smile, she said, ‘Today makes it 1000 days since I’ve been married to my best friend and lover…and she… Continue reading LOUD IT: Faith in the Faithfulness of God

Sustaining His Presence…

You know, when we consider the challenges of day to day life, it’s so easy and oftentimes justifiable to get caught up in our cares, errands and worries that we lose sight of what matters most. We seem to just be focused on what is happening around us now, so much so that we often… Continue reading Sustaining His Presence…

A reason, season or a lifetime…

I first read this poem in 1998 and it moved me profoundly, I have had cause to make reference to it several times over the years.  There’s been serious controversy on authorship of the poem so I’ll abscribe it to Mr. Author Unknown. 🙂 I am sure most if not all of us have read… Continue reading A reason, season or a lifetime…

Kindness

“One theory says that if you treat people well, you’re more likely to encourage them to do what you want, making all the effort pay off. Do this, get that. Another one, which I prefer, is that you might consider treating people with kindness merely because you can, regardless of what they choose to do… Continue reading Kindness
