EPITAPH

I have seen varieties of epitaphs. Some simple, some very long, some very deep, some shallow, some very beautiful, and so on. Have you ever wondered what would be on your tombstone? Or probably you’ve written yours already. That’s definitely a beautiful thing to do. Continue reading

BOTTLED WATER

Not sure how many people reading this post were born during the era of ice water. Like they say, if you know you know. Well for the privilege of those people wondering what ice water is, ice water is water sold in nylons, probably a cup of water poured into the nylon, tied with the hand without the option of a sealing machine, and left to chill. It was sold for less than a naira back then. It was a classic for school children on their way home from school after miles of trekking. Continue reading

Life, Your Movie

I once saw a meme of a guy saying to himself, “What if this world and its happening were just a demo video being played by God for Adam and Eve to show them the consequences of eating the forbidden fruit. It got me laughing and thinking at the same time. A lot of people have several views of life. Some say life is a race, some say it’s a battlefield, some say it’s a journey, some call it a market place and some have described it as a football field, etc. But have you ever thought of life as a movie or a best seller novel, and not just that but also with you as the main character or “actor” as Nigerians normally say?

Everything, Everything

 

Let me start by saying I’m not a movie critic neither do I do movie reviews, but I believe we learn from every single thing around us if we pay close attention to details. We can learn from people we meet and everything around us including movies. Two of my previous posts were inspired by movies, Titanic and Hacksaw Ridge. But I must say I’m a sucker for movies themed after the US Army and love. And I’m not referring to Zeeworld or Telemundo. I am in fact referring to the likes of The fault in our stars, Warm bodies etc. Continue reading

GUILTY

guilty

Yes, I am guilty as charged.

I wonder how many readers of this blog have asked themselves if I live what I preach. And like Paul too, I pray daily that I would not be a cast away after preaching to people. This becomes very important because the Bible makes us understand that many would be cast away on the last day after they have raised the dead, healed the sick, and did all sorts in God’s name. Isn’t that tragic? Continue reading

TWO HEADS

two-headed

I remember growing up in a Nigerian home with typical Nigerian parents. My parents wanted us to be as perfect as possible and be the standard for other children in the neighborhood. Anything short of this was not acceptable. If your grades were poor in school, you would hear something like “do those who came first or second in your class have two heads?” When you ask for lunch too early, you would be reminded of your peers who have to hawk to eat. These experiences are things that most people from Nigerian households can associate with. Continue reading
