Giving God Advance Praise....#Have A Unique New Month Guys!



Praise is a joyful expression of delight over the goodness of the Lord. Praise boosts the ego of God. Praise is a joyful act that switches us from a zero to a Hero and you know what, Praise is contagious. Your praise has to make somebody else jealous enough to join you in the act.

God can do all things but Praise. God can't praise Himself, therefore when we indulge in that, we are releasing an overflow of goodness, mercy and loads of goodies upon ourselves.

Do you know God can change the climate for us because of praise?  Let me try again. Do you know God can change our situation, no matter the situation, including that "impossible kinda situation" because of praise? I'll highlight some examples to back up my point; Do you know the walls of Jericho fell flat because of praise? Do you know David was the only man after God's heart till date because of the numerous praise he sang to, danced to, and wrote? You're doubting?, You should read the book of Psalms.

Praise hypes God, It magnifies, boosts, extends, amplifies and heightens God. Sometime we can pray amiss but do you know we almost never praise amiss.

Praise triggers Favour (Proverbs 5:12)...Do you know you start going down when you stop Praising/Lifting God?

When we are praising God, we should focus on the numerous thing God has done for us, and give him advance praise for things we are expectant of which The Almighty is yet to do and is so aware of. For our God in most time takes his time to test our patience and loyalty, may act really slow, may allow some trials consume us, may allow us encounter loss, may allow the devil torment us, may allow people do unfair stuffs to us, may dance to his tune and not ours, But I'm here to give you hope this morning...My God Is Never Late!


Your Truly.

Reaction vs Response...


Story, Story, Story....

Suddenly, a cockroach flew from somewhere and sat on her. I wondered if this was the cockroach’s response to all the glory that was spoken about it! She started screaming out of fear. With panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started doing jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach. Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group got cranky to what was happening. The lady finally managed to push the cockroach to another lady in the group. Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama. The waiter rushed forward to their rescue. In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter. The waiter stood firm, composed himself and observed the behavior of the cockroach on his shirt. When he was confident enough,
he grabbed and threw it out with his fingers.
Sipping my coffee and watching the amusement, the antenna of my mind picked up a few thoughts and started wondering, was the cockroach responsible for their histrionic behavior? If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed? He handled it near to perfection, without any chaos. It is not the cockroach, but the inability of the ladies to handle the disturbance caused by the cockroach that disturbed the ladies.
I realized even in my case then , it is not the shouting of my father or my boss that disturbs me, but its my inability to handle the disturbances caused by their shouting that disturbs me.
It’s not the traffic jams on the road that disturbs me, but my inability to handle the disturbance caused by the traffic jam that disturbs me.
More than the problem, it’s my reaction to the problem that hurts me.

Reacting Lessons learnt from the story:
I understood, I should not react in life. I should always respond.
The women reacted, whereas the waiter responded.
Reactions are always instinctive whereas responses are always intellectual...

The reacting lesson from this piece is so True!

What's she Thinking? What's He Thinking? What's The Difference Between Their Thoughts.., Find Out! This Piece Is Too Loaded To Be Ignored..

   

Good morning Fam, bet you night was as cool as mine...*winks*  Well, I use two devotionals for my morning devotion. The first is "Open Heaven by Pastor Adeboye" and the second is "The Confident Woman Devotional by Joyce Meyer"...These two devotionals transformed my life. And as a lady, Joyce Meyer was my first ever unseen female instructor and mentor. she taught me a lot through her books and I love and appreciate her for that.

The difference between the thoughts of a man and a woman would make you go "oh my God!, no wonder" that's exactly how I felt when I stormed the piece. Love me some Joyce Meyer, she gets it right all the time.

What's the difference, see what Joyce Meyer has to say;

"The bible encourages us to seek understanding. Read a couple of good books on the difference between men and women and also one of the differences in personalities. If you do, it may prevent thousands of arguments or misunderstandings.

Women offer unsolicited advice and give direction, and men usually don't take advice very well. the woman thinks she is just trying to help, but the man thinks she doesn't trust him to make the right decision.

When a woman disagrees with a man, he takes it as disapproval, and it ignites his defenses. Men only want advice after they have done everything they can do. Advice given too soon or too often causes him to lose his sense of power. he may become lazy or insecure.

Men are visual creatures; once an image is in their head, it's hard to get it out. Women are more clinched to remember emotions or how something made them feel.

Seek understanding first, then speak".


"Proverbs 4:1 (AMP Version)

 The beginning of wisdom is: get wisdom (skillful and godly wisdom)!
{For Skillful and godly wisdom is the principal thing.} And with all you have gotten, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation).[James 1:5.]"


Joyce Meyer definitely needs a standing ovation. With all of this, I can relate in totality, I don't know about you. She advice we read good books to further enhance our knowledge. Men ain't that difficult to handle so are women. Understanding and effective communication help a great deal between men and women.They closeup the breach.

Trust you were enlightened by this piece.


Have a wisdom and an understanding filled day!




Yours Truly.

Are You Giving The Wrong Answer?

The previous post was on power, potential and saying goodbye to the old ways of livelihood which we get too comfortable with but moved on above all odds because of the divine encounter experienced firsthand through God's divine backing. Trust you were inspired.

Today's post would definitely call you to order. You may even have to do some serious background or foundation check.  Are You giving the wrong answer?? You'll find out. Kindly check the table below.


     I dare you to be true to yourself and answer correctly on first trial this simple arithmetic. No room      for second guessing.   Good luck!

Don't feel too bad if you didn't get the answer correctly on first trial. "yah just a cwiious olodo, just admit" *lol*, only teasing around. It's my duty to ensure you get it right. I'm super nice like that. *hehe, lol, don't jealous me either...*flips hair and gets back to business*

From the above illustration, it's evidenced that so many people give wrong answers to very simple questions. They don't hit the nail in the specified point, they give completely wrong answers to surprisingly simple questions. This happens as a result of ignorance, poor foundational problems, poor preparations, improper survey, guess work and theoretical analysis on every situation which has become the order of the day. People who give the right answers comprise of the very little percentage who actually get it right. I'm referring to the remaining ten percent from the table above.

For the purpose of easy analysis and effective comprehension by you, my distinguished audience, I'll refer to the people that fall within the ten percent, as the "ten percent guys" These ten percent guys are the "correct guys", they're really smart guys, very skillful, hard working, pacesetters and dedicated. These ten percent guys literally make things happen. But you know what, these guys ain't no super heroes, they aren't as gifted as you think or imagine, they have insecurities, weaknesses, limitations etc...They operate with a rule. The supreme rule they operate with is the "IGNORE THE NEGATIVITY RULE". These ten percent guys ignore the negative characteristics and work with the positive characteristics which they possess. That is where their power lies, that is their deepest and most treasured secret, that is their weapon and that is their vengeance. They equip themselves by consistently upgrading their defense mechanism which is Potential and Power. These ten percent guys are Great Readers, Leaders, Research addicts, and overall Lover of Wisdom. Believe me when I say their foundation is always grounded, and it remains same all the time. They are likened to that that solid rock referenced in the Holy Bible that can never be shaken. They get it right always.

When you give correct answers, things begin to happen, doors begin to open, unusual events begin to occur,  untold stories begin to unfold, strange things begin to manifest, consistent good news becomes the order of the day.

Breath In, breath Out, meditate over and over again, embark on self scrutiny and answer sincerely, this very friendly question. Are You Giving The wrong answer?  and there  the Right Answer Lies.....

Brace Up! You Just Have To Say Goodbye To The Oldies..






One of the numerous books of  T. D Jakes titled "When Power Meets Potential"  I recently read inspired me to do today's post, and it will only be selfish of me not to share with some of you that need it, a great piece from that awesome goodie bag.

Like the two powerful men of the Holy Bible named Elijah and Elisha. Elijah had Power while Elisha had potential. Elijah earlier had the potential that led to him being very powerful, but Elisha was a budding chap with loads of potentials.

Power notices Potential when it comes in contact with it. Potential needs to display consistent shades of itself all the time to win the heart of Power, so that  Power never lets go, and Potential doesn't remain unnoticed. Individuals with potential(s) aren't lazy people, they aren't people-pleasers, they never force themselves on other people because they feel they are way superior than they are and have loads of  material benefits to obtain from them, rather, they give a hundred percent commitment to whatever affects them positively which can't be separated from them. Their area of interest and utmost dedication includes; upholding family goals, a dedicated combo of a hard-worker and a smart-worker in their  field or career, job satisfaction, in-depth happiness and a whole list of other personal activity(ies) they are composed of.

When Power meets or intertwines with Potential, an explosive outbreak is evidenced and glaring to all, it will affects the friends you keep, the books you read, the places you visit, the utterances you let out of you mouth, the clothes you wear and every ramification of your life. It entails saying  good-bye to the old version of yourself, old routines, old ways, old friends and even old jobs. you don't get to ever look back to those past after that divine event.

Until you reach that melting point, you'll never understand. Are you potential certified and on verge of casting into the abies all you carry? Don't ever do that, remain consistent and do what you love, power would catch up with you in no time, and some day, and when that happens, you'll have the influence to make a difference in the world.

Elisha rose to being twice as powerful as Elijah, so shall you...To all the Elisha's in the house, Are You Ready???

Sir Isaac Newton Is Ranked No.24 Out Of The 100 People That Changed The World, With Jesus Christ As No 1..His Story Will Inspire You..Read And Be Encouraged


Biography Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727)



Early Life of Newton

Sir Isaac Newton was born on Christmas Day, in 1643, to a relatively poor farming family. His father died 3 months before he was born. His mother later remarried, but her second husband did not get on with Isaac; leading to friction between Isaac and his parents. The young Isaac attended school at King’s School, Grantham in Lincolnshire (where his signature is still inscribed in the walls.. Isaac was one of the top students, but before completing his studies his mother withdrew him from school, so Isaac could work as a farmer. It was only through the intervention of the headmaster that Isaac was able to return to finish his studies; he passed his final exams with very good results, and was able to go to Trinity College, Cambridge.

Newton at Cambridge

Isaac Newton At Cambridge he was able to pursue his interests in mathematics, science and physics. At the time the prevailing education was based on Aristotle, but Isaac was more interested in modern mathematicians such as Rene Descartes. Isaac Newton had a prodigious capacity to consider mathematical problems, and then focus on them until he had solved the mystery behind them. His one pointed nature led him to, at times, be detached from the world. For example, he had little time for women. An early teenage romance came to nothing, and he remained single throughout his life.
Sir Isaac Newton, has been referred to as one of the greatest genius’ of history. His mathematical and scientific achievements give credence to such a view. Amongst his many accomplishments in the field of science include:
Developing a theory of Calculus. Unfortunately, at the same time as Newton, calculus was being developed by Leibinz.  When Leibinz published his results, there was a bitter feud between the two men, with Newton claiming plagiarism. This bitter feud lasted until Leibinz death in 1713, it also extended between British mathematicians and the continent.
Sir Isaac Newton died a virgin.

This Would Melt Your Heart...Some Men Can Love Silly Ehn..

                                              20 years ago at their wedding.

Award winning gospel musician Krik Franklin celebrates 20th wedding anniversary wife and his Instagram message to her will sweep you off your feet.



Can I take my time?!
Get past the jacket, the shoulder pads, and the grill before retainers! Today I celebrate 20 years with this woman! We were young, I was dumb, she came from a good family, I had NO family, but she was patient; not stupid. A prime example of how a good woman can change a man without breaking him down. My past was sketchy...she knew that. She didn't compromise her standard but helped me reach it. Every song you've heard over the last 20 years, she wrote it. She was every lyric, every key change spelled her name. We've seen dark days together, but we saw them, TOGETHER. Men can be dumb at times, and want what's newer, fresher, or what our other "head" thinks is better... But to fail Tammy, is to fail God. To cheat on tammy is to cheat on the kingdom, my children, and even you... Those who trust me to chase Christ with everything I got. I'm not perfect, but I'm still in love...with Tammy. Happy 20th anniversary baby! (See bae I did it without saying something nasty!



                 What they look like after 20 years of marriage...Awesome!


*he he, I luv love stories...duurhhh...

This is exactly what you get when you get the foundation right. Journey with the Lord, and he'll forever stay with you and fill your life with goodies. Hearty congrats to this amazing couple!



Sex And Masturbation





Sex is divine? True. Masturbation? Never was, never has and never will be.

Sex is intercourse between male and female for the purpose of reproduction and pleasure. It eases tension, it calms the hormone, it's spiritual and ultimately complicated. It's a soul tie (a covenant) between two parties and deeper than what we really think it is.

Masturbation on the other hand is the erotic stimulation of ones own genital organ  commonly resulting in orgasm and achieved by manual or bodily contact exclusive of sexual intercourse by instrumental manipulation and occasionally by sexual fantasies or by various combination of this agencies.

Now let's check out the biblical version of both.

Biblically, sex is God's given gift, for the purpose of procreation, intimacy, comfort and physical pleasure. It is a fulfillment of God's created order between husband wife. Outside marriage or wedlock it's termed immorality.

There are two sides to every coin, people all over the world have different opinion on masturbation. Some say masturbation is not a sin because it was not categorically mentioned in the bible, others claim it is.

Oh well, for me, masturbation is self abuse. This is when lust comes to play in the picture. As far as i'm concerned. Lust is a sin against the Holy spirit and masturbation falls under Lust. And he he, "making out" is not exempted. it's a sin.

Lust is a strong sexual desire and so is masturbation.

Sex before marriage is sin and the wages of sin is death(spiritual death). Sex before marriage exposes one to unhealthy lifestyle(s). Parties involved are prone to sexual transmitted diseases and other negative vices. Sex literally never satisfies, because you want more and more of it. While not take a chill pill and do it right where you don't feel guilt all over.

Abstinence is never easy at all! But regret is never experienced. Physiologically, sex is needed for the survival of man. But trust me, we could distract ourselves from lustful thinking and premarital sex by averting our thoughts to things that we love to do. This way, we engage ourselves with better and righteous things befitting to our body and soul. In truth, the wait is worth it.

Are you a sex addict, in the habit of masturbating, or always lusting over what's unhealthy for your lifestyle? I urge us to try something new today. Let's challenge ourselves this day to do it right, for there are two pains in life; pains of discipline and pains of regret. The former always emerge victorious. Discipline is key in every sphere or ramification of our lives.

Tomorrow, I'll discuss on the challenges we can indulge ourselves in while we fight this good fight.

Too difficult to preach  abstinence at this era? Naa, it's not. Whatever we set our minds to attaining, is what we achieve.


Let's try something new today and let's do it right too. Have a blessed day.


"You wish to share personal and private messages with me, email me @ ellahillz_7270@yahoo.com or ellahillz84@gmail.com" I'm at your beck and call, always and all the time.

Don't Roll Back And Play Dead


Oh Yes!, it's a fight. don't give up or give in too easily, for the devil is a Liar.

Promises and expectations may not be met after all efforts, and especially when you've surrendered it all to the most high. Keep fighting, don't roll over, don't play dead, it's a continuous fight till you emerge winner.

Never fall for the stunts of the loser, devil, John 10:10 makes us understand that the devil comes only to kill, to steal and to destroy. The mighty warrior, Jesus comes to give us life and life in abundance. This abundant life is only accessed after certain a level of faith in trying circumstance(s) is exhibited.

Some people get what they want easily, some have to toil so hard to obtain what they crave and the others toil so hard with zero results. Don't ever let envy set in. Stay focused, your reward is coming sooner than you expect, that's why we are unique and different from one another. It'll pay off some day, best belief. Keep thriving.

Rule no 1: Don't roll back and play dead.

Rule no 2: Fight, Fight, Fight...

I can go on with the rules. but basically, these are the most significant rules. don't ever trade that. It'll worth it and make make perfect sense in the end.




Remain Awesome.

Don't Just Put Anything Into Your Big Mouth!


Gluttony can be defined as habitual greed or excess in eating.  Eating excessively can cause great harm to the body and from the biblical realm, it is a sin against the Holy Spirit.

Gluttony may not be a habitual trait for some people but it is for others. Learn to say thank you when you've eaten to your fill and more food is passed to your table. It would do you more good than harm.

Some of the harmful things it does, consists of; indigestion, sleepless night(s), aching stomach, puking, pooing, imbalance, restlessness, obesity and other negative vices.

Most times drunks are quick to be condemned while those who are gluttons go unnoticed. "Physical appetites are an analogy of our ability to control ourselves. If we are unable to control our eating habits, we are probably also unable to control other habits, such as those of the mind (lust, covetousness, anger) and unable to keep our mouths from gossip or strife. We are not to let our appetites control us, but we are to have control over our appetites. (See Deuteronomy 21:20Proverbs 23:2)",  this will help a great deal in teaching us the 'dos' and 'donts' of responsible eating.

Stay away from excess eating today, I don't care how skinny you may look, you are not exempted! for Health Is Wealth.




Yours Truely

Labour Always Gives Room For Favour......yeah, all the time


Labour is good but over dose of it can hurt us. Favour always break rules or protocols on our behalf, Favour is God's divine backing.

Labour doesn't necessary entail that we work so hard. It entails we work smartly, intelligently and ultimately with God, whereby we work jointly with and in Him.

I bet you're familiar with the popular slogan, "Do your best and leave the rest"...Yeah, we should labour in our own way and leave the rest for the favour of the Lord to take over. It works better than magic.

You're toiling so hard with little or no result to show for it? Then you need to re-strategize. You need to do things differently, learn new things, under-go training on the particular skill or desire if possible and watch God do his thing.

God is obsessed with new things. God brings out tones of messages from every messy situation.

Have an awesome week Lovelies...


May the favour of the Lord rest upon you, Amen.

But The Devil Is A Liar


Does God ever make mistake(s)? Never has, Never been and Never will be.

Everything, situation or circumstance under the surface of the earth, happens for a reason. whenever things don't go well as planned, especially at the last hours if we were at the verge of getting it sorted out, Rejoice! even with tears streaming down your cheeks, Rejoice!

Oh! If only we knew the secret battles God was fighting on our behalf, we would fall on "bended knees" and weep in excitement. we could mourn all night if that would help ease us,but it's an abomination to wake up feeling like God failed you. For sorrow may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning. Check yourself before you Wreck yourself.

Some people are so good in giving advice(s), but can't advice themselves or shake themselves off the dust when they fall. Young man or woman, you need to Practice what you Preach.
Always remember that those who are called to greatness face great challenges. the setbacks and mess are there to make the story(ies) more juicy and inspirational in the nearest future when they are going to be shared to all. When the devil laughs so hard at you, making you feel so bad and disappointed in God, it's a trap, keep those eyes focused on the Almighty God who doesn't cut short the expectation of the righteous but rather richly repay every loss, for the devil is a Liar!


Yours Truly.

You've Ever Been Disappointed Before? Now, This Should Be Your Motivator



 Every miracle begins with a Conversation. Disappointment is a Conversation about your Future. Every Conversation Gives Birth....To Something,Perception, Change, Doubt or Faith. "Dr Mike Murdock"

Never give up because of any disappointment(s) whatsoever. the moment you quit, it's all over. that is failure personified. You see, God shows us the end from the beginning, he doesn't show us the mess that we experience in between.The moment you give up, you end your mission on earth. No one was born without a purpose, there is enough to go round.


The above equation tells it all. disappointment can come from anybody you've had too much expectation and confidence in. It could come from yourself as a matter of fact. When it comes to others, never expect too much from them. Why not channel all of that confidence and trust in God who never disappoints and in yourself so as to be used by God.

Disappointments when mastered, are ladders to the manifestation of reality. Disappointments when handled with maturity, gives room for creative thinking, ideas, innovation, achievement of Goals and actualization of Dreams.


Never give up too quickly or easily. You are aware of success stories of most of the prominent men and women in the world who didn't drown in their many disappointments, they kept thriving and smiling at the world till it smiled back at them.

Have a Conversation filled day Lovelies. Stay blessed.

XOXO

Potatoes, Eggs, and Coffee Beans....You don't want to miss out on this inspiring story.


Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.
Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot, and ground coffee beans in the third pot.
He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing.
After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.
He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup. Turning to her he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?”
“Potatoes, eggs, and coffee,” she hastily replied.
“Look closer,” he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.
“Father, what does this mean?” she asked.
He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity– the boiling water.
However, each one reacted differently.
The potato went in strong, hard, and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak.
The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard.
However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.
“Which are you,” he asked his daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean? “
Moral:In life, things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is what happens within us.
Which one are you?

Not Only Your Body Need Food, Your Spirit Does Too

                               Here's a dessert for you


You eat good food and your Spirit is starving ? You need an upgrade honey. You need to step it all up. You can start somewhere. consistent baby-steps leads to mature-adult steps. Most of  you wouldn't be able to relate until that personal relationship with The Most High is instilled. I encourage all of you to start small while embarking on this supernatural journey. You wouldn't understand, till you get there. It works!

I was a victim of being "lukewarm" at some point while feeding my spirit and I can compare and contrast the ever glaring manifestation in my life when I made the best decision of my life to give God my everything, my life; literally, technically and physically changed forever. God wants you to give him a hundred,He wants your all, he wants the overall best after much evaluation and scrutiny.

Let Me Tell You A Story....


                                               

                                                            FROG

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit.
All the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead.
The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump out of the pit with all of their might.
The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead.
Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.
The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die.
He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?"
The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

Lessons to be learnt:
1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day.
2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill him or her.
Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. The power of words.... it is sometimes hard to understand that an encouraging word can go such a long way. Anyone can speak words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in difficult times.
Special is the individual who will take the time to encourage another.

It'll End In Praise



I don't know what you're going through, I don't care about it either, as a matter of utmost fact, it's irrelevant to me. I was sent to tell of you, It Would End In Praise....Did you just doubt? I said it would end in praise!..I want a believing AMEN!..

Permit me to tell you what praise does;

* It magnifies God

* It boosts God

* It extends the mighty hands of God over us

* It amplifies God

* It heightens God

* It hypes God

We can pray amiss, but we can never praise amiss.

Praise triggers Favour, It gives us access, it's break-forth new dimension, it changes our lives, we live on a brand new level each time we give praise to The Most High.


I urge all of you to  spend "24 minutes" of the 24 hours God has blessed you with today, praising God Whether Christian or Muslim. As far as I'm concerned, we serve only One God. Do this and experience first hand a 24 hour cyclical miracle on what the lord will do in  your life.

Happy Sunday Dearies, enjoy every bit of your day. Remain Blessed Forever>>>

Inspirational African Choir At Town Church

             The African Children s Choir has helped raised funds for impoverished communities
 

The world famous African Children’s Choir bring their joyous sound to Leamington this month.

After their uplifting performance of the number one single ‘Sing’ with Gary Barlow at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the choir have been invited back to tour their inspirational talent and will be performing at All Saints’ church in Leamington on Monday January 18 with more local children.
Music for Life, the official fundraising charity of the African Children’s Choir, works in seven African countries, and has educated over 52,000 children as well as improving the lives of over 100,000 people through relief and development programmes during its 29-year history.
The African Children’s Choir travels the world, acting as the ambassador for Africa’s most vulnerable children, raising much needed awareness as they go. Funds raised contribute towards not only the entire education and care of all the touring children, but also to the continued development and support of the Music for Life programmes that help some of the continent’s most in-need children.The Choir has attracted fans from all over the world, including some celebrity admirers. Annie Lennox said: “I first encountered the African Children’s Choir as they were heading towards the stage to perform for Nelson Mandela’s 46664 campaign. Since then I’ve come to appreciate more and more just how uniquely special they are.”
Many of the choir’s members have lost one or both parents to poverty and disease.


Adorable Photos Of Barack And Malia Obama Are Indeed Family Goals And Would Melt Your Heart

This is President Barack Obama's final year in office, but the father of two is also facing another milestone in 2016.
Malia Obama, the president's eldest daughter, is gearing up to go off to college -- and if photos from the first days of 2016 are any indication, the president is squeezing in as much quality time with the 17-year-old as possible.
On the last day of their annual Hawaii vacation, the father-daughter duo seemed nearly inseparable during a family trip to the Honolulu Zoo.
"While younger daughter Sasha stayed close to her cousins, Obama walked hand-in-hand with older daughter Malia," the Honolulu-Star Advertiser reported.
The happy duo were photographed again on Sunday --  and again, hand-in-hand -- returning to the White House.

Girl Collects 1,000 Coats, Blankets So Homeless People Can Stay Warm In Winter

Makenna Breading-Goodrich has taken on a special holiday project, for the last three years. 

The determined 12-year-old goes door-to-door in her community, passing out flyers that call for spare jackets and blankets for the homeless. Then, two weeks later, she returns to each home to collect the donations, piling everything inside her red Radio Flyer wagon.
This past Christmas, Makenna delivered more than 1,000 coats, blankets and other winter gear to the Phoenix Rescue Mission, according to Today.com.
"It gets really cold around here at night, like 30 degrees," Makenna told People Magazine. "I want to make sure homeless people aren't walking around without jackets or blankets at night!"
         Every November, 12-year-old Makenna Breading-Goodrich goes door-to-door collecting donation items to help                                                  keep her community's homeless population warm through the holidays.
Makenna started collecting coats for the homeless in 2013, after watching a TV special on homelessness during the winter months. 
"I was watching the news with my parents when I saw a story on people living on the streets," she told The Huffington Post. "I wanted them to feel cared for. Everyone should feel cared for."
Feeling inspired, Makenna, who was 9 at the time, went to her laptop, created a donation flyer and emailed it to her parents.
"She said, 'I think I can really do something to help,'" Makenna's mother, Jennifer Breading-Goodrich, told Today.com. "Any parent would look at their 9-year-old daughter with pride and tell her they'd be thrilled to help her in any way."

In 2015, Makenna more than doubled the amount of items she collected the previous year.
"Most people say, 'I would do stuff like you do if I had more time'," Makenna told People.com. "But I make time for this because it's important to me. And if people truly cared, they would make time, too."
Her initiative has inspired a movement among her peers.
This past season, teammates on Makenna's softball team helped her collect donations and bring them to the shelter, Today.com reported. Another girl was so moved by Makenna's generosity, she began collecting Bibles for the same shelter.
"It is amazing thing to me to see the number of young people who are noticing the need and wanting to do something about it," Dianne Robinson, the community engagement manager for the Phoenix Rescue Mission, told Tucson News Now.
    Teammates from Makenna's softball team volunteered to help the 12-year-old collect and deliver some of her haul to the        Phoenix Rescue Mission.

Makenna, who now calls her project Makenna's Coats for a Cause, simply believes she's following the Golden Rule.
"If I was out there, I would want someone to care for me," she told People.com. "Something small can make a difference. A little kindness can inspire others!"

This Man Donated Part Of His Liver To A Stranger. Now They're Getting Married

Illinois couple Heather Krueger and Chris Dempsey are a perfect match in more ways than one.

It all began in January 2015, when Chris overheard a co-worker talking about a family member in need of a living liver donor. That family member was Heather; she had been diagnosed with stage 4 liver disease the year before and needed a transplant to save her life

                            Heather Krueger was diagnosed with stage 4 liver disease in March 2014.

Without hesitation and without ever having met Heather, Chris -- a former Marine -- was determined to help. He got tested and was a match. 
"I put myself in Heather's position and thought what it would be like to not know if you're going to make it," Chris told The Huffington Post. "And I thought to myself, You know what -- I'm just going to do this."
"[Chris] called me and said the tests came out great, let’s do this, I’m a match, I’m your donor," Heather told ABC News. "I couldn’t believe it."
The transplant surgery was scheduled for March 2015. It was a long, intense procedure -- eight hours for Chris and 12 hours for Heather. In the end, 55 percent of Chris' liver was removed and given to Heather.


                   The doctors removed more than half of Chris' liver during the procedure. 


              Chris Dempsey and Heather Krueger were perfect strangers a year ago. Now, they're engaged. 
The pair grew close in the time leading up to the surgery, and afterwards, they took their relationship to the next level.
"We started spending more and more time together, doing dinners and going to the movies," Chris told HuffPost. "After the surgery, we really made it official and started hitting it off." 
Despite some post-op setbacks, both parties are now healthy and doing well. 
"No regrets," Chris told ABC7 WLS. "I would do it again if I had to."
In December 2015, after thinking about it for several months, Chris decided to pop the question to Heather. He planned a romantic evening in Chicago, including dinner at The Signature Room at the John Hancock Center, followed by a carriage ride and, of course, a proposal.

                                        The couple is all smiles after the proposal.
Now, the couple is busy planning a wedding for October 2016. Krueger's cousin, who first introduced them, will be a groomsman.

You Can Mean What You Don't Say But Don't Ever Say What You Don't Mean



The definitionof the terminology breakup; In the Oxford English Mini-dictionary which was my major source while trying to do this post didn't have such word as breakup, it possessed break, break-in and break down.

But then I decided to ask google shortly before this post to be very sure if the terminology was a right word and indeed it was. From my later study, I discovered it was a term added to the dictionary because of the popularity of the term. Now, Google defined it this way:
 break-up
noun
noun: breakup
  1. the separation or breaking up of something into several pieces or sections.
    "the break-up of the Ottoman Empire"
    synonyms:separation, split, split-up, parting, parting of the ways, estrangement, rift,rupture, breach; More
     Well, back to my me Area of concentration, the word Break which is where i'm interested in is where other conjuctions associated with Break emerged from. It is a very deep word and you'll understand as you read through.

"According to my Oxford Dictionary", A Break means to;

1. Separate or cause to separate as a result of a blow or strain.

2.  Fail to keep a promise or law.

3.  Crush defeat (literally an end in a fight with strong consequences attached to it).

4.  Reveal bad new.

5.  Surrender.


It would interest you to know that all the terms breakthroughs, breakups, breakdowns etc all emerged from the parent word Break. Relationship between humans would be my yardstick for an explicit analysis to give meaning to the word, Break.
A Break shouldn't be looked down on, the word should be used only when it's the real deal and of course should be allowed to play it's role. You should have zero doubt while declaring that very deep word. Every(all) meditation(s) should be done before the word is pronounced. There may be a change of heart afterwards but that isn't your business. You should focus on why you decided to call it off and examine whether it's worth it overall.

The word Break can be affiliated to tangible and intangible things too. They are not just associated with Humans. Permit me to add that they can be used easily on non-living things, but with Humans, it's a different ball game entirely because of the composition of Humans.

Allow me teach you. You should never accept  the intention or thought of bringing forth the word "a lil break while in a relationship'' , it can do more harm than good, it can kill all that's beautiful, it is the wrongest thing to do and the worst approach methodology since time memorial. Reason is this, there are consequence(s) attached to that powerful word, Break.

You are in for deep soup when you say the word but never meant it. It's never going to be about you but about the party(ies) directly involved and affected. Words make, words destroy too, they are that powerful. You ever any iota of doubt, refresh your mind to the creation story where God made(created) everything with his words, hands are very vital parts of our composition as humans and animals but God didn't use them to create through declaration  neither do humans do.

A Break is good and in some occasion is the perfect thing to do. It disconnects you from the "kill joys", things(people) without a future, things(people) without a purpose, things(people) without an impact, things(people) you don't like and are not connected with or to, things(people) that are negativity filled and ultimately, things(people) that would never make you a better version of yourself.
 Forgiveness is a different ball game entirely and doesn't affect the message i'm trying to pass across.It's a subject on it's own, I don't intend to deliberate on it, at-least not today.

There is a huge difference between forcing something to work and fighting for it to work. The former will never work, it will result to a tragic and epic fail, the latter will emerge victorious because there was a mutual connection between both parties that triggered the communal fight. That is a good fight!.  

Are you fighting the good fight in every ramification of your life?

Are you insecure about something that is toxic to your system but still clinging on for fear of the unknown?

Are you living a "not so ideal life" because of the influence of  people around you?


Then there's need to fill in the gap. Apply a Break where needed and apply a Make where needed too.

You can mean what you don't say (especially when a good thing is involved), but don't say what you don't me (excluding during pranks but not when the word Break is involved).

XOXO...





Yours Truly,


Your Girl,
