God, what game are you playing at? #blog #blogging

Did you ever stop to think that there was a supernatural, higher being who had knowledge, wisdom, control and final mandate over the events in the world? I appreciate that in some instances people may think that He is weak, unable to stop events from happening etc. The fact is that some of these events, as dire as they seem actually prompt people to seek Him. In some instances, people consult mediums, attend seances, seek “mystic meg” types, Follow astrological readings and signs but yet refuse to acknowledge God, or his existence! There is I believe a God-shaped vacuum in every human being seeking Him but gets filled with position, fame, drink, sex, lust for all sorts that bring more emptiness.

It seems that the more we acquire, the more we want…an endless cycle of frustration. The other thing I marvel at is timing! Can you believe that despite the dictates of experts, consultants some things will not happen when we will it but at His timing, giving him super authority over everything. I am so glad I belong to him.

Going #Afro? #blog #blogging

Imagine how in this day and age technology begins to reveal myth-shattering ideaologies, ground-breaking discoveries that shake the very foundations of what we have held true for so many years. In this day and age people still say to children under 25, “Go back to where you come from!”

What is the correct answer to that I wonder? This young person say they replied “I was born here” to the shock of the other person. I think maybe I would have said something like, “where is that then?”

Anyhow technology, archaeology and DNA typing suggests the existence of the cheddar man – a mixed featured dark-skinned individual blue eyes that some have argued against for reasons best known to them.

It was only a matter of time… #blog #blogging

Shock! How could I have missed this? I chided myself so strongly. Morning could not come fast enough at 9, I was emailing and phoning them to say I would send the signed documents back ASAP. I could not give up now. It was already 15 days past notification date but I managed to get it in even though the phone, internet and circumstances refused to line up.

Relief came when an email reply said they had been in meetings… but it was the next day, today as I write, when I finally got to speak to someone. So after phone calls, voicemails, emails it took another 24 hours to get confirmation of receipt of my forms. Then they added they were just compiling the final list TODAY!!! Friday. An announcement was planned for Monday.

So what if I had not found those documents in the deleted folder, or responded yesterday? We would have been talking a different story.

What God has ordained for you cannot be snatched away… it may take time or do the rounds but it will still come back home… to you!

Is she the right one? #blog #blogging

So I was attending a wedding 🎩 👰 where the bride and groom were about to exchange their vows. The minister asked for the one giving her away and her father came forward claiming it was him. The minister asked if he was happy with the proceedings so far because another previous ceremony had left the father of the bride then, quite upset. This father said he was.

Next the minister asked the groom to lift up the veil to check if he had the right woman at the altar. The congregation burst into rapturous laughter as he reminded us this was not the first time a bride 👰 had been switched for the groom.

Finance lessons taught by Mummy! #blog #blogging

My mum noticed that we would sit on the fence outside the house and buy anything the “street hawkers” were peddling so that when the day was up, or rarely, week was up we were broke. For some reason I started learning to save my money as I was not sure about our spending. I would then bail out or help others if they needed money.

What I like best was that my mum studied our spending patterns and realised (market research) we were spending on sweets and worked out the type of sweets we bought by asking – survey.

That’s how we began to run a sweet shop in the store of mummy’s kitchen.

Walking 🚶‍♀️with Mayor #blog #blogging

I spent a reflective and fun day with the beautiful Madam Mayor, Cllr Sanchia Alasia.
Very easy to talk to and soft spoken and direct, we were spending the time raising funds for her three chosen charities: Endometriosis, Pennu and Afruca. They could not be more diverse as they cater for suffers of a condition where womb tissue grows outside it; for wellbeing of the maturing people and campaign against child abuse / human trafficking, respectively.
So after the night before

Living with mum, can be fun but… #blog

Her wisdom surpasses mine in so many ways. She’s seen it all, “almost,” so when she says to go to Costco and buy in bulk to save it deserves more than a cursory nod of the head in agreement. I take her point. She’s so right about these things.

What’s your #bMoneywize story?

One parent’s perspective “Not a lot parents will go out of their way to see things from their kids perspective. To take an interest and understand that age generation and pinpoint that they will forever be attracted to games. It’s a parent’s love for their children. There’s no smarter way to teach kids than games….

Another suddenly #blog #blogging

Regretting the fact that I had neglected to follow the instruction to send ahead to the participants, some documents to read, I slightly asked Daddy to intervene. Hence the need to access the email on my phone so I could ask someone in our destination’s support team to print some copies for the meeting. One of our team brought a copy and Coulter too. Thank Daddy for his sense of humour.

During this meeting, I heard myself begin to say things I had no prior planning to utter, but seemed to meet the need at the time. Many questions and demonstrations later we were out.
