Chores…Laundry…More

My most dreaded house chore is spreading out clothes, I can manage to live through doing laundry but please don’t ask me to spread them. I counted the clothes these children wore in a week, because no matter how much I wash, they just keep multiplying and the number was a hundred and ten, in ONE week! I think I have some invisible visitors who put in their clothes when am not watching. My trusty washing machine knob tired of the incessant turning, has given up on me. I was flirting with stylishly throwing some clothes away, maybe I should […]

Spilled

After clearing up for the night, I was already seeing my bed calling out to my weary bones. Samuel who had refused to sleep was hungry. I wearily went to pour out the remaining oat inwardly thanking God that I still have little already prepared. I added the milk, on lifting the cup to his lips it slipped and poured. This poem was what I wrote to cool my head as I went into automatic overdrive. I called it   SPILLED He sits down with a string of pearl Hitting the floor click clack Into his mouth it goes Down […]

basking in mediocrity

Basking in Mediocrity

I have been asking God some questions lately because I have been noticing an up and down movement in my life. Going through my Instagram, I came across Chinonso Ogbogu of The Incubators Africa’s post on mediocrity, according to him: “So many young entrepreneurs are feasting in the banquet of mediocrity. We dance in sheer mediocrity. While encouraged by the growing cheers of those who seem not to know any better. We get locked in people’s praises that eventually we stop growing-we simply plateau. That’s dangerous! Mediocrity can be a five-star prison that can comfortably keep us locked in nothingness…” […]

Purpose

I heard of an argument why parents should/shouldn’t choose courses/career for their children…some children are fortunate enough to know what they want almost from birth, so a parent choosing may not be appropriate in that case but what of those who have no clue. I didn’t know what I wanted to study or be. Every time my father asks me I always said something different; I wanted international relations because it sounded exotic, to be a pilot because I always wanted to travel the world, business administration because my Aunty was studying it. English was the last course I called […]

anger at God

Anger at God

My first pregnancy, I came across a book, “supernatural childbirth” which is basically talking about getting pregnant, carrying the pregnancy, delivering the baby all without stress and complications. It also discussed delivery without pain…this I was interested in because I always wondered if Eve was cursed in childbirth and Jesus came to liberate us from every curse, then we are not suppose to be experiencing pains or trouble in childbirth right? Whenever I spoke about this to people, they just gave me this blank stare, so I learnt to shut up and keep my opinions to myself. Well…when I came […]

Missed Calls

I sent Tori to get my phone from my bag, she refused, so I sent Nugie instead who ran to bring it. Tori on seeing her sister bringing the phone, starts crying because she has changed her mind. I gave Nugie a thank you hug with a high-five. Tori cried harder because she wanted the Thank you from mummy. I had to look for something else to send for so she could get a thank you too, she didn’t want something else, she wanted to bring the phone but when she realized that wasn’t feasible, she settled for getting something […]

ORIGINAL? FAKE? OR CLUELESS?

Driving back home from work I saw a crowd gathered recording and taking pictures of a scene with their phones, as I drove closer, I saw it was a man praying for an insane man; from the look of the mad man he had spent years in that bondage, I was in traffic so I couldn’t stop but I heard someone say sarcastically as I drove away: “he doesn’t want to give up, allow this madman go in peace.” I thought to myself, “Why is this man embarrassing himself, what if that madman doesn’t get delivered?” what makes you different from […]

I only see in part…

Samuel, my seven months old baby is hungry and the whole world knows by his screams. I am pouring out his food and it has to be the right temperature before he takes it. He doesn’t understand why he should wait, he keeps screaming, struggling and holding my hands, it doesn’t make the food come any faster, rather it only delays the food because I am distracted trying to keep him calm and mix his food. While the struggle is going on, the Holy Spirit impressed on my heart “that’s what you do, when you don’t get answers to your […]

Ephesians 1:17-19 (NIV)

God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, I ask that you give my husband and me (my children, sibling e.t.c) the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that we may know you better. I pray that the eyes of our heart be enlightened in order that we may know the hope to which you have called us, the riches of your glorious inheritance in your holy people, and the incredible greatness of your power available for us who believe you.

Against Infidelity

Isaiah 66:11 New International Version My husband will nurse and be satisfied at my comforting breasts; He will drink deeply and delight in my overflowing abundance.” Proverbs 31:11 King James Version The heart of my husband does safely trust in me, so that he shall have no need of spoil. NB: When soldiers go to war, the things or treasures they carry from the conquered army or nation are called spoils of war. A man already rich will not need spoils of war, just the way a king will direct his soldiers to take anything they fancy; you will not […]
