I’ll be dedicating this article to a particular group of guys. They treat ladies with respect, have a healthy sense of humor, they don’t womanize; have almost no vices, so they naturally attract the average lady. They are a unique set of people who by their action or inaction, have done more harm than good but are ready to argue in their defense.
The very thought of the genesis of this article brings some interesting memories to mind. Life in secondary school formed the crux of who i am today. I made some amazing relationships with people from all strata of society. Remarkable as well, was the fact that i developed a personal relationship with God when i was in JS 1. After that, i got heavily involved in fellowship and church activities. I was a full boarding house student, and functioned in several units in the school fellowship back then where i met several kinds of people, some of them were
2011. What a year! I made a commitment at the beginning of the year that i would write many more articles and post weekly; alas, i failed you! I got distracted by several things. I started writing articles several times and never got around to finishing them. I’m sorry. I am taking this time, barely one and half hours into the new year to share something with my readers; i know it will help some people put into perspective, a major subject like going into marriage in the new year.
I love the message translation of the bible. I stumbled on this passage two days ago and decided to publish it for everyone to see. I always wonder what Jesus would’ve done to the church as it is today, if these were those days…..the people he would be rolling with, the things he would outrightly condemn and “born again christians” would be against him for….i wonder, just wonder! Can you read the article below with an open, simple English Language mind? You’ll be amazed what Jesus stood for and what he outrightly condemned; it doesn’t matter your religion abeg,
I’ve met a number of couples who started their marriages with all the love in the world. They had big dreams and plans to make them happen. Impossible was nothing; everything was in place in their home and the future looked picture perfect.But along the line, each party had to make defining decisions; career change decisions, entrepreneural/business decisions, etc. Those decisions then turned out to cost more than was bargained for because they were not done properly at all. Let’s take a look at a particular scenario.
It’s interesting that after a long break, I’ll have to write on a topic that’s the flip side of my last article. What actually prompted the writing of this article is also very interesting. While i was in the university, i belonged to a clique of lovely focused ladies. We all met in school but had connecting points that brought us together….we were all in the same department and class and shared common values and principles. That made it easy for us to read and have discussions together, pray together and have loads of fun. Did i mention that we
Last week, i was having a chat with a guy who’s been married for a few years. He works on the island and lives on the mainland (meaning he spends most of his active time at work) and our “gist” centered around the implication(s) of friendships with single ladies at the same workplace. He seemed to have his own strong opinion backed by his stance on having undue closeness with those ladies.
It’s been a long while i wrote an article, but it’s been so much in my mind to write one. I came back from a short but refreshing vacation over two weeks ago. By the time i came back, i was energized and ready to face the next phase with renewed energy. During my vacation, i met, and chatted with different people (i went with a group of friends and business associates); some of the people i spent time with, i only knew from a distance before then. It was a time of relaxation; bonding and making fresh acquaintances live
A few weeks ago, i overheard a neighbor of mine talking with my hubby outside the house when he went to pick something from the car. Their discussion seemed to have lingered for so long that i wondered if he remembered that we were running late for service; after some time i had to go out dressed to say hi to the neighbor so my hubby could see he was the one delaying us; and sure, he got the message 🙂
