Week 8 of Thankfulness

Standard

This week is not over, as a matter of fact, it just started. But, I’m thankful for every life that comes my way and the opportunity I get to say something to them that makes all the difference, helps them understand a bit better and leave with a smile. Even when the situation is still the same and there’s no sure way out around us yet, they leave with a better attitude.

And you know what Hope does, it keeps you pressing on!

That is what I’m thankful for so far.

#TuesdayThoughts – Kindness 2

Standard

Imani gave today’s topic and I realised that I had written on kindness before. Well, I’m doubly sure someone needs to hear this, probably why it is repeated. If you have been kind and not seeing any reward, just keep being you! That’s what makes the world go round for some other people and you mean the world to them!

You are blessed! ❤

Field of gems!

Standard

I can’t believe I missed last week’s challenge. But you know me, I’m not giving up on that opportunity to explore a world of precious stones, moments and tribute! https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2016/04/25/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-94-diamondspearls/

Keep Digging

Sprawling field stretches

Looking commonplace hiding

The gems underneath

You are…

Precious to me, child…

Than diamonds, purer than pearls

I’d go nuts losing.

#LyricalMonday – …and it dawned on me!

Standard

Sometimes, we need to let go of things, systems (that are no longer working) etc. I know I was talking about relationship here, but when you look at life generally, you will discover that this applies all-round.

An awakening will set you on the part to freedom…look inward and around you, it just might be the TIME TO LET GO! You are better than this, if you didn’t know, I’m affirming it today.

#LyricalMonday on a Tuesday – Thanks

Standard

One of those times you look at your life and you are thankful for the people God has brought your way, because by their presence alone you easily hear God say to you “I care!”. And when they step into place to do what has been commanded of them by God to do in your life, then gratitude just flows endlessly from your lips.

For every of such person You have sent to me through the years *wink*, You know I’m grateful and I love You, Lord!

#Writer’s Quote Wednesday on a Thursday

Standard

I love a Maya Angelou any day.

I’m sure I’ve seen this quote countless times but today I’m using it again to remind myself that I need to be careful how I say what I say on paper and otherwise, since people will always remember how I made them feel.

My intentions are not to make you feel good always, No! Sorry, if you expected that. As sometimes, you will need a wake-up call to change direction and that might hurt 😦

They are not to make you sad all through either, but to give you LIFE and you know Life is a mix of all things bright, beautiful, sad, lone and happy…the good, the bad and ugly like they say. Or LIFE according to the Bible, but whatever it is you choose, I want you to enjoy every remembrance you have of me that I met you and left you better.

Writer's Quote Wednesday_240216

That, Colleen, is the onerous work on every writer to give every reader something to stop and think about before taking the next step.

Milk Smooth

Standard

Dripping Lips

He talks with finesse

Offering peace with a twist

Smooth deceiver

Beware

Be deft in the art

To figure out swindlers

Smooth innocence

 

Daily I’m inspired to write Haiku. Thank you Ronovan for this opportunity.

Celebrating Pastor Paul

Standard

IMG-20160126-WA001He has been called many names and Pastor

And because he speaks mighty well, an Orator

Listening to him, you can’t be satisfied with status quo

That results in time-wasting and unnecessary fiasco

It would seem his waking moments beckon with much action

Trying to capture it, he Calls for a Performing Generation

One known to have fought many battles to be here

Constantly says Something is About To Happen, don’t fear!

Baaba

Yesterday, the accolades poured and I wondered

Should such a one be celebrated but once I pondered.

Today, I acknowledge him as one who bares himself

As he works the call upon his life, taking others from the shelf

I dwell in awe of one who truly loves his Asaba-Ijebu Princess

And misses no opportunity to let us know this essence.

As we appreciate you again soon,

May you hold the words we say (though not often), as true.

For indeed… you have not just been a Mentor, Life-Coach, Father

But also a Prophet, Priest, Leader, Transformer and we seek no other!
