The Introvert in Me

“He doesn’t talk much in class,” “He’s so quiet”.  That was what my high school teacher once told my mom during a parent-teacher conference. I knew what she meant but I don’t think my mom did. I had good grades that school term and so my mom had no reason to probe any further.  To her being “quiet” meant I wasn’t making noise or disturbing others in class. I knew exactly what she meant. That I wasn’t participating in class activities. Back then I hadn’t heard of the term “introvert”. To others my quietness was synonymous with shyness. I was […]

A Story Is Told // We’re No Longer Slaves to Fear

A story is told…

I love stories. They have a way of encouraging, uplifting, drawing us in and even simplifying complex matters. Jesus is a master storyteller. His is still The Greatest Story Ever Told.

They say that love makes the world go around. One theme that has featured in countless songs, poems and TV shows is love. Love is the source of so much joy, happiness and ironically, so much pain and sadness. We can’t do sans love. We were created to love and be loved.

Happy New Year – Hustle on Your Dreams

Happy New year. I know it’s been a minute since my last post. Anyway.

A lot of things happened in my life in 2015, some made me very happy, others sad. I questioned God a lot concerning what I was going through. I stopped doing some things. I learned new and exciting stuff. I made new friends. I let go of some. I cried (not onion tears), I laughed a lot. All in all, I thank God for seeing me though that year.

This and That Conversations

It’s exactly 1.09 AM Saturday…err…Sunday morning and I am still awake.

Sleep where art thou

I think it’s the coffee I took. Time and time again I promise myself never to drink coffee before going to bed. I never learn. This time I think the drink was a blessing in disguise as being awake made me do a lot of things. I finished washing the dishes a few minutes ago…the thought of waking up in the morning with the sight of dirty dishes wasn’t pleasing.
