Pray for Persecuted Muslims

Quite sad. #PrayForTheMuslims

Hahaha! This one made me smile. All my Kenyans will relate to this.

Black Roses

Train Station The only other thing worse than having nobody wish you lovey-dovey sweet nothings on Valentine’s Day (V-Day) is taking a Makadara Train. Trust me. Despite coming across dashing red outfits, rose flowers and disgustingly in love couples, my V-Day had been awfully ordinary. For a spicy ending and to dodge traffic and rain, after work, I decided to take a train accompanied by a colleague (Debrah).

Setting out to relish every second of this short ride, I marvel at the cheap tickets (KES 30 for one passenger). The ticket sellers are swift as they pass change and tickets back and forth, to the mob of people, all hurrying in. My heart skips a beat in excitement and anticipation as I hold onto my ticket. We rush into the Railways Station and leisurely settle on the stone benches. As we wait for our train to arrive, Debrah tells me train stories…

Sunday Post 140: Better Than OK

Too true.

The Real Full House

When Lisa was diagnosed with colon cancer, a man from work came up to me and said, “My son had cancer.  It was the best thing that ever happened to our family.  It brought us closer together than we’d ever been before.”

You’re a nut!  I thought to myself politely noddingHis son did live.

I found myself in a similar position to that man this week.  I had a conversation with a friend who was going through a very difficult time.  The table had turned.  I was now the encourager.  And I did my job.

But the interesting thing was that I believed, because of my experience, that she would be OK.  Although her situation seemed dire, I could genuinely see her bad news as an opportunity.  A time for her to turn over a new leaf, to move forward.

THAT’S NOT ME!  My glass is half empty.  What’s…

THIS is parenting 101 👍

The Real Full House

I’ve heard of parents who won’t let their kid listen to the radio unless it’s on the Christian station or Radio Disney.  I get that for some ages, but a  10-year-old?  I know of kids who are so sheltered – never spent the night away from their parents, never experiencing anything but home.  I guess they don’t want their kid exposed – to life I suppose.

I recently heard of a parent who said, “It bothers me when my kid says the “f” word.  He uses it all the time.  The other day he said “f” you to me!”  What?  Your kid says the “f” word?  Your kid says the “f” word in front of you?

Another said they just didn’t know what to do with their 8th grade daughter who drinks their alcohol in their house.

For starters, remove the alcohol.

AHHHHH!

AHHHHH!

Certainly there are extreme issues that are difficult to handle, parenting…

The art of enjoying people

A very precious post, treasure to the soul.

Life of A Fallen Angel

So many times in this world we take people for granted.

I wish I could sit here and write that I have never done that and would never do that, although I would be lying. If only to myself, I mean it’s not like any of you really know me outside of what I write and so I could paint a beautiful picture of the perfect person I thought I was.

But I won’t.

What I will say is that I’ve taken very good people, people that treated me with love and respect for granted. I thought that they would always be there for me no matter how I felt, what I did, or how I treated them. I have to admit it happened on more than one occasion even in my adult life.

A while ago (last year to be more specific) i came across this little nugget, known as Contingency by Paula Wiseman, and i loved going through it. Hopefully it can thrill and educate you as it did me.
