Not thankful enough

Hey people,it was an amazing weekend for me.Did some running around concerning my elder brother's white wedding and also did a little outing.I rarely go out these days,i think i'm getting old.*straight face* Hope you all had a very nice weekend though? Please,if you can,just give Toinlicious a very warm hug for me,no questions,just do it.Thanks!

As humans,we're prone to taking very important things for-granted.Things like waking up each day,being healthy,not witnessing disasters,having someone who loves us no matter what,having both parents alive,having wonderful family members,including extended etc.We're just liable to take these things for-grated.They're so normal that we don't even realize they can be taken away in a flash.The funny thing is when some unpleasant things happen,we swear we'd be more appreciative,but we just need a few good moments,and we'll forget our resolve.We'd go back to being our normal not-appreciative-enough self.Over the weekend,a few things happened.A dear friend of mine lost her friend and she was quite shaken.After talking with her,i just knew the death really hit her.But then again,doesn't death always hit?! Barely an hour after we finished talking,a friend of mine sent me a message on BBM to tell me one of our friends was involved in a gas explosion accident.WHAT?! Gas explosion?! They were headed to see him at the hospital so i waited for feedback and when it came,it wasn't pleasant.He was severely burnt (as i saw in the pictures i was sent),face,arms,legs...Dude got really burnt,it got me thinking.I've never lost someone very close to me,i've never had a disaster,i've never had to run helter-skelter for any reason and that's a privilege i definitely have taken lightly.

Just in case you're wondering where i'm going with this post,i just want to remind you that even though you don't think so,you've not been appreciative enough for the privilege you have to live a good life.To be healthy,alive,blessed,favored,to have parents who are well,to have loved ones around you,to have life at all...No,you've really not been thankful enough.We've all not been thankful enough.I'm using this medium to let God know i'm thankful,even though i sometimes forget,but i'll try to remember all his good works.Most especially the ones i consider normal.Have a nice day and week ahead people.

Ladies,avoid self misleading

Hey people,how have you all been and how's the week going so far? I've been busy and lazy and busy and lazy and i don't know.But you know i can't leave you for so long a time.

Someone sent me a broadcast on Blackberry that made so much sense and I in turn sent it,but to all the ladies i care about on my contact list.The reason is because I don't want any of them to fall victim of her own self.I have always heard ladies say they don't want to suffer,hence they want to get settled with a guy that's already established.They say something like "It is better to cry in a Range Rover sport than to smile on a bicycle".But,like the broadcast pointed out,these people have never known pain.They have never cried so much that the tears seem to dry in their entire system.

Let me tell you a true story.A certain very pretty gurl was quite lucky to get marriage proposal from a rich military man,she liked him also and thus decided to get married to him.Not so long into their marriage,things began to go wrong.Late nights,other women,physical assaults,emotional assaults,among other things.Let me now tell you the prayer this woman,who had everything she wanted,said "God,since it is his riches that has made my home a war-front,please take it away".Shocking right? Well,God is a prayer answering God so He really took the money away and the husband actually adjusted.Now don't get me wrong,i'm not saying the prayer she said was good or bad,i'm only trying to get you acquainted with the problems associated with some 'riches'.If she prolly was among the group that believed 'it is better to cry in a Range Rover sport than smile on a bicycle',you know now that she has learned a bitter lesson.I mean,she willingly lost almost everything and now she has a measure of happiness that wasn't obtainable when her husband was rich.

Now,for all of you who still have that shallow thinking (yes,it is shallow),here's my advice for you "Change it'.Don't get me wrong though,being rich is a good thing,being married to a rich man is a good thing.But ask yourself this,is it only riches that make a marriage/relationship? Some men are rich but that's the only attribute they have.If financial wealth is the ONLY attribute you look for in a man or the MOST IMPORTANT attribute,then you're putting yourself in a grievous imminent danger.If he's rich but has not got a good heart,does not fear God or is unable to get you pregnant,of what purpose is that marriage to you? What if after your marriage he suddenly becomes poor and already wealth is your main reason for being in the marriage? I am a guy,but i know how wicked guys can be.We could decide to give you everything you want but not anything you need.You might think when you're given money,cars,designer cloths and all,you would be happy.But truth is you won't when you don't see the person you're supposedly married to or don't seem to have any form of relationship with him.So rather than make 'wealth' the ONLY or MOST IMPORTANT attribute you look for in a guy,look for these instead;

*Fear of God
*Sense of responsibility
*Good heart

If the person you're engaged to,or is proposing marriage to you,has all these attributes,then you've hit it big.I mean you've struck gold big time! A man with prospect and the fear of God will always make it in life,it's an assurance i am giving you.I know of men who were very rich but couldn't manage their riches and thus got extremely broke.Imagine you getting married to a politician and after leaving office he becomes broke.He 'was' rich sha,so you wouldn't worry abi? Hahahahahahaha
Be wise women,don't be stupid.Don't grope in darkness thinking you on the throne of knowledge.Don't mislead yourselves!
