Romans 8:37

Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through him who loves us.

Be confident and remember at all times that you are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ.This same confidence in Him makes you know that you already have the victory before the problem comes.

You my friends, will make rapid progress in Jesus name and you will go forth and do exploits, you will succeed at being yourselves Amen.

Have a great week people. xx

He is not just anyone, He's my friend.....

God is not a man, so he does not lie.
He is not human, so he does not change his mind.
Has he ever spoken and failed to act?
Has he ever promised and not carried it through?

His established word must come to pass...

And the beat goes on

Happenings my good people...

Yesterday DH got himself a car. Am delighted, God has continued to push us up. These days am finding pleasure in the simplest things of life. He also got promoted and has been put on a development plan that would involve so much jetting around ( doubt i am excited about the jetting around part).

I am still in my job, not going anywhere, Everyone thinks its a joke.

And my birthday was good, i had the most amazing time. And got a lovely present.

I recently regained contact with one of my buddies from way back, and its just been amazing sharing our testimoneies and just chatting. We're hooking up in 2 weeks when she would be passing through Lagos, am indeed excited.

My lil sis is back in Lagos, got redeployed from Sokoto praise God (as in i have company at home).

I lost my dear cousin, i dont know why it had to be so soon, but God knows best and we'd go for the burial soon.It was a sad time, but as they say time is indeed a great healer.

Nothing yet on the baby scene but i have as advised removed it from my mind and i trust soon it'd happen.

One of my dearest people, who i suspect i offended is getting married soon, am delighted.

And i have successfully been living a healthy lifestyle, eating right and exercising right. Driniking my 8 glasses of water everyday.

What else, hope am not boring.

God has been faithful, still is and always will be... i have so much to be thankful for.

Anyway by Kent Keith

I remember promising you guys that i would post some poems, poems i read when i was school. And i have found on the internet. Poems with words that encourage! the world is full of negativism and discouragement. Enjoy!

The verses below reportedly were engraved on the wall of Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta, and are widely attributed to her. However, according to The New York Times, the verses actually were written by 19-year-old Kent Keith in a motivation booklet for high school counselors published while he was a student at Harvard in 1968.

People are often unreasonable, Illogical,

and self-centered;

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you

of selfish, ulterior motives;

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful,You will win some

false friends and some true enemies;

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,

people may cheat you;

Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building,

someone could destroy overnight;

Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,

they may be jealous;

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,

people will often forget tomorrow;

Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,

and it may never be enough;

Give the world the best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,

it is between you and God;

It was never between you and them anyway.

The last line should remind us that at the end of the day it is what God thinks about you that matters the most. What people think, say or believe about us is not important. We must keep on doing good and all the things mentioned in the poem and even more. We must believe the report of the lord and not that of any man.

Loved ones

Someone sent me this ....

I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
"Oh excuse me please" was my reply.

He said, "Please excuse me too;
I wasn't watching for you."

We were very polite, this stranger and I. We went on our way and we said goodbye.

But at home and with loved ones a different story is told,
How we treat our loved ones, young and old.

Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me very still.

When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
"Move out of the way," I said with a frown.

He walked away, his little heart broken.
I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.

While I lay awake in bed,
God's still small voice came to me and said,

"While dealing with a stranger,
common courtesy you use,
but the family, loved ones and true friends you love, you seem to abuse.

Go and look on the kitchen floor,
You'll find some flowers there by the door.

Those are the flowers he brought for you.
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.

He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,
you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes."

By this time, I felt very small,
And now my tears began to fall.

I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
"Wake up, little one, wake up," I said.

"Are these the flowers you picked for me?"
He smiled, "I found 'em, out by the t ree.

I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue."

I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;
I shouldn't have yelled at you that way."
He said, "Oh, Mom, that's okay.
I love you anyway."

I said, "Son, I love you too,
and I do like the flowers, especially the blue."

Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company
that we are working for could easily replace us in
a matter of days.
But the family and loved ones we left behind will feel the loss
for the rest of their lives.

And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more
into work than into our own family,
an unwise investment indeed,
don't you think?
So what is behind the story?

Search yourself you will realise.

I lost my cousin this past weekend and suddenly things and acts that used to matter to me, that used to hurt so bad, that used to sting, dont really matter anymore.

So i unleashed

My darlings in blogsville, for the first time in ages i unleashed .....

I hate to have to unleash my dragon at all (cos i can be a dragon or lion lol)and then cos i appear to be a "sweet" little lady without issues or stress. You know what they say about people who are always happy and laughing and people who always smile. Anyway i am a blessed woman and life is still beautiful.

Just that the whole rubbish (am begining to see) in my office is just rubbish. lol am venting. Some rubbish person even asked me if the office is my house when i was in the middle of my fume and silent battle for my right. lol. She doesnt know any better i guess. I hate the fact that my office keeps employing people without making proper provisions for them. How can it be too much to ask for a condusive (according to the standards of my crap office) work area. When did it be become right to be treated with no respect?

Now shes kidding and asking for my DH's number (i guess she wants to hail him) lol she's silly. Am sure ur wondering what am on about my peps. My office reminds me of life in diaspora. Where u come from being a "king in your country" and then you get there and ur treated like what. How can anyone at all have the right to just get up and swap tables (am not hating the player here, i have nothing against the player, just the game). Gimme a tiny table to sit and work cos am the new person meanwhile i came here yesterday and sat on a normal sized table. Thats rubbish. In my hay days i would have walked. lol. Its crazy man. Theres a lot to talk about about my office and its politics but like i said a certain team member of mine has found my blog. And i love my job.

Anyway i have finished my vent and life is still beautiful, no matter! I stand to be corrected but i'll rather get it all out of my chest and move on than pretend to be civil and be unhappy, cant work effectively that way and yes I CAME HERE TO WORK!!!!! I still love my job, co-workers, team members and bosses.

All right folks... i rest my case.
