Wedding Day (Part 2)

The nights passed and the days dawned.
It was the engagement day. Everyone fussing around and excited about the joyous celebration.

Tola could not contain her joy, yet, it was one of mixed feelings. She would be leaving all she had known behind and moving on with her life, with the man of her dreams, Olushola Samuel Ajayi....view full article   read more

Wedding Day (Part 1)

It was time to rest in advance for my big day. The hustle and bustle of preparation for me was over. No outing sprees nor over excitements I had been told. My big, black leather box lay gently at the corner of my room. The room was as cosy as always and warm from the rug’s presence....view full article   read more

Peace

Peace has overtime been described as a state of rest and harmony, a period free from war, discord or strife. More often than not, we tend to see peace as a time of total comfort, away from every form of anxiety and worry. Yet, this is not a true summation of what peace really means....view full article   read more

Living Strong

It was a beautiful time out with Mrs. Omilola Oshikoya, Mr. Oyakhire Russel, the production crew on Heart of the Matter, including the godfearing, wonderful, handsome, and loving young man always standing solidly behind me through thick and thin, Olushola Ajayi, popularly known as Bishopforte. The creative director behind bishopforte.com....view full article   read more

To Be Brave

Well, I got this poem from a little friend yesterday and I thought to share with you guys. She had told me it’s culled from the book, “Music Therapy”. As I read, It sure hit me once more that courage isn’t the absence of fear or the ability to take things in strides like they aren’t happening, or merely pretending that things are fine. No! Courage is believing that God’s got you in His big, strong arms and right there, there’s absolutely nothing to fear. It’s having immovable and unwavering confidence in God. It’s an attitude of unquenchable trust in God’s infinite abilities to see you through insurmountable challenges. And yes, it’s a gathering of all the negative circumstances, pains and challenges you get into a strong punch of faith in God. Keep believing!...view full article   read more

Daring To Hope

Under a cloud
Of both depression
And hurting emotions.
I stand comatose,
Like a patient for a craniectomy.

Going through the tremor,
Is sheer painful labour.
I think it,
That I ain’t in favour.
But something tells me,
It’s only but a vapour....view full article   read more

Ogbanje

“You’ve started with your stupid crying again? Abi?. What’s wrong with you? What’s with the tears? Ehn?”

Mummy Moyo shouted at her daughter. ” It’s like you have some demons residing inside of you. I’d drive them out now on your behalf.”
Moyo cried all the more. Her voice rising in a falsetto. she was deeply frustrated. How long will it take her mother to know that she wasn’t crying from demon possession but from agonising pains. Just how long?...view full article   read more

Tobi, My Warrior Friend

Tobi is an handsome, quiet, fair-complexioned, seventeen year old boy. He has a very attractive demeanour and I met him just a week back, before the Easter celebrations. I fell almost immediately in love with the young man and gave him a nick. I called him “UP-NEPA” the very first day I had contact with him. This nick was inspired by his complexion. I think I should let you know that the nick stuck. His friends found that better than the initial nick they had given him, Alabi-yellow....view full article   read more

Remain Hopeful

“When the storm continued raging, we finally gave up hope”. The last thing we throw overboard when we face a crisis is hope. And when we throw that away, we’ve pretty much ‘ had it’. Are you wrestling with an issue that’s been battering you back and forth? Have you come to the point where you’ve thrown things out, and now you’re at the point of despair? Remember, the sailors on Paul’s ship finally gave up all hope because they forgot that God was in control. They forgot He had a plan. And they forgot that He can inject hope into an absolutely hopeless situation. When the Bible speaks of hope, it’s not talking about luck, or chance, or accident. No, it’s about focused faith in God. (Excerpt from Word for today)...view full article   read more
