Dear God,
I give thanks for EVERYTHING
bad, good except NO THING
They say,

A child who shows appreciation today
For a deed done yesterday
Worths another someday

This day is a new child
As I go in it
Help my gentle mild
soul sway happily
Not in the hands of Osun, Oya or any Chi
Do I rest my head< /br> But in your broad big hand
The ground I step may have a thorn
From it Lord, strong make my feet
Disease in air makes it air-borne
May I breathe no sort of it
My eyes may see glory and gun
The joy of the gun is six-feet
Far from me I plead
The journey of no return is a long one
May I not embark on it...

Life, What a mystery! Death, a misery or greater mystery?

As I write this, I beg to remember past incidence of the death of close relations and I conclude that life itself is truly vanity. The things we gain in her proves to be "unworth"

So many homes have this 'Jesus' image in their house which they worship in some ways. I personally have one in my room.

But far from that, I read an article sometime ago on José Mujica, the 40th president of Uruguay where he was described as "the world's 'poorest' president", due to his austere lifestyle and his donation of around 90 percent of his $12,000 (£7,500) monthly salary to charities that benefit poor people and small entrepreneurs. He drives an old beetle and He is an Atheist.

In different parts of the world today, Sunday, 1st March, 2015, the name of the GOD of the Christians would be called and revered. I can imagine the stilloettes, the head gears, the fashioned dresses, the e-Bibles, fat offering envelopes, the dexterity with which pastors in various denominations will reel forth prophecies and prayers for their church apostates (probably received from God or on their order)... It would be awesome right?

But I had something else in mind... As I opened the small (dusty Bible) that sat on my study for my devotion with the same GOD I mentioned earlier, I learnt something new.

And I do believe that rather than ranting some societal poem or posting a happy new month tale, I should share this. Do you remember Babel and Pentecost?

Babel was confusion and Pentecost was accord

What was lost at Babel in Genesis 11:1-9 was the power to unite and set out to achieve just anything.

I learnt that this power was restored at Pentecost in Acts 2:1-6:
"...people who had come from every country in the world... were all excited, because all of them heard the believers talking in their own languages".
But the big question is:

Has the Church (the very one we would worship in this morning) realized the importance of this new order? Or are we just busy creating smaller "Babels"?

The church needs help!!!

**food for thought on a sunday that begins a new month**

Good morning, A Happy Sunday, A Blessed New Month.
