#FreedomFriday – Once in a Blue Moon



To do something “once in a blue moon” is to do it very rarely: “The phrase refers to the appearance of a second full moon within a calendar month, which actually happens about every thirty-two months.

Why did this thought come to mind when I thought of Valentine?
For one, on Valentine’s Day the whole town/world is painted RED! So why did Blue appear in my focus?

Every day, people say ‘I love you’ in different ways and through different media. Some are subtle, while others are in-your-face-love; bottom-line, people are in love or so they claim. Hence, I don’t get it when a day is set aside to celebrate love and disorient our sense of colour choice with one predominant colour. By the way, I love RED! wink

Love, I keep saying is an everyday affair. It’s like blood pumped to the heart, you don’t want to experience what will happen if that blood stops flowing at the correct pace, or if air ceases to flow from one valve into the next (or all those places air flow through). So whose bright idea was it to limit love to one day? Who thought it right to limit love in the first place? Who determines how the day should go and by mid-night, we are back to the cat-fight-mode-activated fully.

Well, this is me wondering again and still thinking out aloud. If you have something to say, pray, let’s hear. Till then, either you enjoy your “once in a Blue Moon” love day or do it the God-way.

With every breath I take, I love you daily and eternally, babes. ❤

Tuesday Thoughts


Tuesday Thoughts_050515 I am trying to redeem my blogging image by maintaining my writing tempo. Please don’t laugh at me just yet. As writers, we can be so overwhelmed with other matters and because it comes ‘natural’ to you, you think you can just reel it out when it’s that time. But guess what, I have had days that my library of unwritten prose refused to yield and it sets me wondering about life generally. Yesterday I went on a wonder trip and this is what I harvested.

Pray tell, what do you often wonder about and wish you knew why. I’m not saying I don’t have answers to some of these questions o! I’m just wondering why I asked them in the first place. I hope I’m not on a rambling spree this evening. LOL and really hard too.

By the way someone motivated the 2nd line and when she found out that her being upset gave me inspiration, she promised to rejoice WHEN I got upset today, as if to say getting upset wins someone a trophy worth displaying. But you know what (don’t tell her I told you o!), It has helped me check getting upset today as I made sure that all those people who delight in stealing my joy, whom I had given access to upset me didn’t succeed. I am covered by the blood of Jesus! Amen!
