I Love This!
Her life like grass, so tender, young and full of life like the succulent breast of a young mother.
Her life like grass, thinking that all green things are there to make her grow and so she opens her arms to grasshoppers who are only there for green death and destruction.
Her life like grass, always beautifying the lives of others who accept her so long as she doesn’t attempt to grow because
her life like grass, she is cut down with sharp hatred and green envy since her growth disturbs the very people she “prettifies”

I love this and can relate!!!… I’ve had the leading to write about my “hush hush” flaws, and this has really encouraged me! I hope it encourages you too!
When I became saved I decided that I wouldn’t kiss my husband until my wedding day. Personally, I was Christ’s bride and therefore kissing my husband was a privilege kept only for marriage when God handed me over. When I met my potential life partner I was so deeply in love with God that I even asked him to cease all communication with me for 7 months so that I could concentrate on Jesus and deepen in my intimacy with Him. After 5 months we felt it was sufficient to speak again and pursue a pure and Godly courtship,
so we thought.
The problem was that because of how we had prioritised God whilst we were single, our flesh now prided itselfon the idea that we were now invincible from falling. We convinced ourselves that we were so intimate with God that nothing could trip us up…

Someone sent me the link to this via whatsapp, and captioned it:
‘Our Country is in dire straits. Unless we keep awake, she would fall apart. ‘
I honestly believe it is a call to prayer :)… and i’m grateful to @ordinaryperspectives for this read 🙂
Keep awake, child
You do not let it pass while you are in a daze
You must keep awake
Lest lying dogs sleep comfortably
You must keep awake
For the cock whose crow you await has gone to roost
It is the middle of the day, but you must strive to keep awake
Keep awake, do not sleep when it is mayday,
Set your hands to the task, you must do it yourself
For the elephant to whom you look has a broken tusk
And can no more lift your burdens
You must keep awake
The clouds have gathered and you have laid out your grains under the shadowed sun
When the rain’s about to come down, you must keep awake because the umbrella’s worn and in tatters and past repair.
You must keep awake, child, else your mealy meal would be washed away like the deception of…

Girdblog has been asking writers what seems like a simple question, “What is love?” We got some insightful answers from six writers from Ghana, Cameroon and Kenya. Find out how they (un)define love below.
“The most expected, yet the most difficult question. Love would be conquering fear so that I bring into my space, someone/something that would challenge my inadequate knowledge of myself. I see a self-examination, a self-learning so that I can love truly and honorably.”

“For me, love is many sets of actions. In a relationship, it’s when someone decides to be kind, patient, thoughtful, giving and all the other good things in spite of the other party. It is what you do. Not a feeling. Or I should say, not just a…

This is a Message! Its a good read!!!
Recently, I took a brief vacation from social media. As soon as I logged back on, I saw so many posts about graduations, weddings, pregnancies & babies, promotions, new cars & houses and smiling faces everywhere. Everyone has it going on these days! While it gives me great joy to see my friends and associates so happy and blessed, it can also be a bit depressing. Now I know we are not supposed to compare ourselves or our situations to other people’s, but social media gives us a huge platform to do just that. It’s so hard not to compare when the only things people post about are good things. We will post about our big promotion, but won’t tell you about how we struggled to find a job. We are quick to post our new bundle of joy when they’re not even an hour old yet, but we won’t…
