Simple dimple Smile.

via Daily Prompt: Simple

Simple, Dimple

Mingle, jingle

Turn the world around

with that sway

A simple smile

reveals that innocent dimple

by the corner of her face,

Her voice sonorously rings

through the jingles piercing  the airwaves

Now there she is ready to mingle

with the rest of us

On this simple plain

like all of us,

Her name is “Simple”

Ready to mingle.

What Technology Are You Grateful For?

DAY 2:

Well, I failed in posting my Day 2, of my 30 days gratitude challenge, yesterday. So here is my day 2. What Technology Are You Grateful For?

Recently I have been involved in live streaming of my early Monday morning musing ,with a little touch of Worship embedded in the streaming .I am so humbled by the traction accrued to this facebook live ,and the feeling that it gives me when I see the number of people watching and connecting as we love the Lord in worship,and I get to share some insight. That feeling is just way beyond words.

The Idea that people can connect and watch live streaming from anywhere across the globe regardless of their time zone is just so awesome.

Kindly tell me what technology you are excited about.

Discover Challenge: Songs from my heart.

via Discover Challenge: Song.

Song my favorite word. Singing has become second nature to me, The feeling that overwhelms me when I take the microphone and stand on the stage, truly I was born for this.  Music found me,and lyrical expression was embedded in my loins, such that even in my sleep ,I am singing a song.

Different songs resonate with me at a different season. lately, I was having difficulties coping with major disappointment,because of the setback, I found that I was emitting negative energy,I didn’t want that.

I just found myself going back to a song I have just written and recorded like a dummy recording, Listening to that song over and over again melted my heart,and reaffirms the Father’s love for me [God].  Even when it seems I am facing a disappointment , I am never alone,my father’s love overwhelms me, helping to see things in the right perspective and helping me realise that there is always a way out. Now that’s the power of a song.

The great Reggae music legend, Bob Marley had this to say about music and song,

One good thing about music,when it hits you, you feel no pain.

Many times in life we face situations pleasant and unpleasant, we are faced with challenges that almost want to snuff life out of us , but as soon a you hear a song that resonates with you, it emits a beautiful feeling and you almost forget what you are going through.

Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time than anything else. It’s amazing how much can be conjured witha few notes of a song ora solitary whiff of a room.-Emily Giffin.

30 days of Gratitude November.

Hello Everyone, it great to be back here on WordPress. What a way to get my blogging groove back, sharing my gratitude for each day. I saw something that caught my fancy earlier today on Facebook and decided to use it as my writing inspiration- 30 DAYS OF GRATITUDE.

DAY 1: WHAT SMELL ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR?

I am grateful for the smell of my children. I am a proud mother of two high-energy boys,who never let an opportunity of play slip by. When they go out to play and come home with sweat flowing off them like it raising to reach the mountain,off course they wipe the sweat with what ? Their clothes.That smell is a sign of their ability to run around,exercise  and a blessing of Motherhood.

They say you can tell much about a person by their smell because there  are many factors that affect how you smell at a given time- The gift of being alive and active on the playground is a great smell that I will forever be grateful for ?

May I ask you this same question , “what smell are you grateful for? I will be delighted to read your thoughts too.

Parental Care.Mirror Image.

I took a deep breath , Hmm! I sighed. Parental Care,nurturing and everything running through my mind. Lord help me I Muttered a word of prayer.

This morning, my younger son came into my room, holding a book in his hands. It was a book my Husband bought some years back when we started raising children- How To Raise A Gentleman by Kay West.

“Mum, Can I Show you something? He asked”.

Yes ,what is it? Then he opened  the first chapter of the book- Leading the way to good manners-26 Things to remember. I knew I was in for some serious debate as he began to point out a few things and coincidently they were points I had noted while I read the book a while back.

Let me show you some of the points he showed me.

*Listen to your child when he speaks to you,even if you’ve heard it before.

Do not discipline your child in front of others.

*Do not give in to temper tantrums.( I looked into his eyes ,like  did you read that, and he gave a grin like mom we are talking about you. We started our discuss, of course, he was trying to be defensive based on the book ,and I ask him , have you read any book that talks about how to behave like a gentleman, how to respond to your parents.

( I looked into his eyes ,like  did you read that, and he gave a grin like mom we are talking about you. We started our discuss, of course, he was trying to be defensive based on the book ,and I ask him , have you read any book that talks about how to behave like a gentleman, how to respond to your parents.

As we went back and forth, I just couldn’t help but reminisce on those times,when they were still tiny tots, how I cuddled and breastfed,stay awake all nights because the crying baby won’t stop whining.

That tiny tot is now showing and telling me how to raise him to be a gentleman, I said Lord, please help me! It is amazing to know that they are growing day by day and watching everything we do as parents.

Every action and every word spoken is captured in their hearts,and sometimes you just see them doing some things and saying things that make you wonder.

This same 10year old has been asking me to get him a laptop for Christmas,and I asked him,what he wanted to use a laptop for, he told me he wants to start blogging like his mummy. I laughed!

I told him it wasn’t time yet for him start using such gadget ,that he should start writing in his notebook, that was how I started.  He said if somebody who is 7 years old can have a laptop why can’t he?

There and then, we had to start another discussion on not comparing ourselves with others, being content with who we are and what we have. Sometimes I even don’t know what else or how else to respond to them.

Parenting can be such a hard work, I wondered how my mom coped with me and my five siblings? but then it is obvious that the strategies of the early 70’s -80’s are almost obsolete to want is obtained in this day and age.

One truth remains unchanged and unshaken through the ages, though.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old ,he will not depart from it

My prayer for every parent is that God will help us to mirror Christ, through the integrity of heart and strength of character to our children appropriately . That we will help them to understand that as their parents we are co-workers to make sure that they become everything they have been designed to be and do, on this side of eternity present.

train-up

We are not macho men and women,we are humans and sometimes we don’t know all as parents.

From a work-in-progress parent!
