Words and the tongue

 Words are like eggs dropped from great heights;
Tongues are those great heights from which words are dropped;
They are either wagging or wise!
Words have power,when spoken through the tongue,carry meanings in diversity!
Words can kindle fire in the minds of men,so can it melt the hardest of hearts!
Be mindful of your spoken words,they can haunt you forever,so are conceived words,which are being interpreted as thoughts!
Don't say words you don't mean.
Don't say something just because you want to feel good!
The wisdom behind spoken words is time!
Always understand there is time for everything!
There is a time for tease and a time for tears!
Time for smiles and time for sorrows!
Words should be spoken according to their time frames!
Remember,words are pale shadows of forgotten names!
They can bring justification and also,condemnation;
They can give birth to creation and also provoke convulsions!
They can ignite indignation and can also bring men to their knees!
They can become your testimony or your stigmas !
Be quick to hear but slow to speak,my dear friends!
For words spoken in haste do end up in regret!

THE MIRROR EFFECT!!!!!

Admire others and make them the measure behind how large a mirror you need to get to view yourself!
Let the success of others be an encouragement to you and that path of yours,it should be a stepping stone to your greatness but not the path on which you must tread!
The way you admire others makes you crave such admiration from others,I know,don't let it consume you.
Being consumed by such thoughts and longings,create unwanted loopholes for jealousy.
Who you see in the mirror when you look is yourself,how you pose in front of it determines the effect it gives you!
The appreciation and make overs you do to your life will make you understand how far you have come with making you look good in the mirror.
The larger the mirror the larger the view!Don't waste such large views looking at others!Be happy for others!Let them shine!Do your own thing and have fun whilst at it.Let their shine inspire you,and not to make you perspire!
Rejoice for them and tap into their blessings,be positive that yours is just around the corner.
Envy no one!The simple trick behind you getting yours sooner than you expected,is feeling good about your neighbor"s success!!

When hopelessness shows up at your doorstep!

There is a naughty friend of ours that never stops creeping up on us!
He comes around when we are always up to something good in our lives,especially the really difficult tasks of them all!
Just when we need to put in all we have got,he comes knocking on our doors.And when it seems he's been ignored by us,he finds his way through the window or the back door.He never gives up until he's done what he came to do,which is dropping his little ones,discouragement,disappointment and rejection,for us to baby-sit.
And this really happens when we couldn't get the first task right or we missed out on the first opportunity,he makes us baby sit in misery!We shut our doors and windows, for fear of the mosquitoes of opportunity,because we think we cannot handle just another task again in our lives,as the first one was a disaster.
And thus our lives,we live in misery,pain,and regret for hopelessness will never visit us again,to pick up his little ones from our houses.We start wishing we were stronger to ward him off, the first time he visited us with those kids.
Hey,don't fret!Life doesn't have to be that way for you,because I know deep down you,you want to try again!What you need to do,is toss discouragement,disappointment and rejection,out of your home.Ouch!i know it feels you are mean,as they are just kids.You have to be tough because they are no good for you,and for all it's worth,hopelessness doesn't care anymore!He is going about his own business without a care for those notorious three.
There's a friend just across the road,he will make you not feel bad about doing so.His name is determination,the son of success and reward.He will take you to meet his parents and you will never know what it means to meet hopelessness anymore.I know the road to his parents'house is bumpy and like a roller coaster,but you don't have to suffer through it,you can make it fun for you and take what you meet on the road in faith,so you have a story to tell when you get to your destination,my dear friend!
This is a lesson for you and me.Refuse to worry about what you cannot control!If it's out of your control,why fret about it?Don't be faithless,be believing,for a winner must first know what it's like to lose!

The true definition of a rare gem!

Nowadays,the use of the words rare gem to describe a figure in the society, or loved ones gone in their biography notes, cannot be over-emphasized!
Agreed,every human being has his or her own unique quality that distinguishes him or her from the rest  of the world,thereby making that person uncommon.
Do we really understand the qualities of a rare gem?
Do we realize that our characters in life should be related with the attributes of a rare gem?
Twelve precious stones were mentioned as foundations of the wall of the new Jerusalem.The characters of each,i will emulate!

Gemstone 1;JASPER
Jasper is the first of the twelve foundation stones!
It is opaque,fine-grained of dense variety of the silica chert.It has variety of colors, ranging from brick red to reddish brown,yellow,green and black.For thousands of years,black jasper was used to test gold-silver-alloys for their gold content.Legends have it that jasper brings joy and happiness to lives!
Can your life be a true picture of example for others to
 follow? 
Can you be a role model to others?
Do you bring joy to yourself,your family or the society?
Do you light up the faces of people?
Like black jasper,Jesus Christ will test our labor and service for gold on the last day!

The things that haunt us the most!

Life is about choices. Some we regret, some were proud of. Some will haunt us forever.

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.

There is no refuge from memory and remorse in this world. The spirits of our foolish deeds haunt us, with or without repentance.

Humans have a huge capacity to carry pain and sadness. There are things that haunt us our entire lives; we are unable to let them go. The good times seem almost effervescent and dreamlike in comparison with the times that didn't go so well or as anticipated!

A lot of people, when they say 'forgive and forget,' they think you completely wash your brain out and forget everything. That is not the concept. What I think is you forgive and you forget so you can transform your experiences, not necessarily forget them but transform them, so that they don't haunt you or handicap you or kill you.

And as a true athlete, mistakes haunt you forever.

Much of the stress and emptiness that haunt us can be traced back to our lack of attention to beauty. Internally, the mind becomes coarse and dull if it remains unvisited by images and thoughts that hold the radiance of beauty.

Exceptionally hard decisions can deplete your energy to the point at which you finally cave in. If you mentally crumble and degenerate into negative thinking, you'll magnify the problem to the point where it can haunt you.

Don't ignore the past,but deal with it,on your own pace.Once you deal with it,you are free of it!
You will be free to embrace your life and be a happy loving person because if you don't,the past will come back TO haunt and keep coming back to haunt you!

The names we call ourselves or give to our children go a long way in influencing our lives or that of our children!They have deeper meanings and reflect in our day to day lives.Choose wisely!My name is Rhoda and below are the meanings that go with it!It deeply reflects my life,if not all of it,most of it!

When she runs in to say that Peter's at the door, the others snarl at her and say she's mad. It may be that Rhoda was under orders not to open the door for anyone because the Christians were afraid for persecution.

CHANGE OR FRINGE?

Is it indeed a time for change or a time for fringe?
From where I am looking,Nigeria is on a ledge.
Never could have asked for a better election conduct in a country as rugged as ours!
Never in the history of democracy in this nation,has an incumbent government been voted out of office!
All things work together for good right?
I don't feel comfortable with this change until I have seen what it holds in the months unfolding,because we don't know what awaits us.
While we toss the coin of change about,
in our chants and jubilations,let's not forget there are always two sides to every coin! 
 While I don't understand why we should be jubilating and dancing to the tunes of a man ,who is close to kicking the bucket,I must congratulate our incumbent president for his simplicity and youth,"youth",i emphasize in comparison to the one replacing him.Yet,Nigeria is not a country to be ruled by simplicity and soft rebuke.She needs tougher hands and stronger backbones ,which Buhari might want to boast of,as he is more of an advantage when it comes to toughness.As careful and mindful as Jonathan was,he still ended up being wrapped in the web of confusion by the complicated nation and back-stabbing subordinates around him.
After all has been said and done,I still pray for a better nation,where every man will deserve what he's got,where we will be ruled by a better government,when a better tomorrow becomes the best now.
Our destiny lie within our hands,for we are the architects of our very own downfall,as well as our victory!
