Awww. . . Beautiful June tells us goodbye tonight. She's really been wonderful. Hasn't she? And we'll miss her. Won't we? Well, I'm glad she made a promise be back next year. :)

There's nothing serious on my mind. I just want us to play!

Btw, whose birthday is next?

It's Not Over Yet

I usually put up my post at 5:59 AM (GMT, West Central Africa) So this post is about two hours late. I didn't really want to blog today. I was forming, "I need to take some time off." But I couldn't resist the topic on my daily devotional. It is talking to me!

It's Not Over Yet


Just last weekend, I celebrated my first blogiversary. I was feeling on top of the world. I was feeling fly. I thought I deserve to take some time off. I've really been through a lot already.

This is the first thing I had initially wanted my blog to be about; sound and voice. At the time, all I prayed for was to bless more people with my voice since I wasn't able to get Heart Rays on the radio.

No Podcast. It's my Birthday and 1st Blogiversary!

Woo-hoo! It's my birthday!!! Happy birthday to me!!! I'm literally screaming my voice out. If I'd created a podcast for today, it would have either melted your earlobes or broken your eardrums (as the case may be). Lol!

Questions for Reflections Before You Turn 30

It is your life, your priorities. It would be good to ask yourself some questions at this point in time, so you can set your priorities right. (Aww! I heard that voice in my head again)

Before I Turn 30


Ever since I bumped into an article about 'what to do before you turn 30', I'd been praying about living before dying.

STORY: I Met Jerry (9)

It's 8:45 PM. I still couldn't get through to Jerry. This might probably be the first day he's never called since the day we met. But I hope not.

Event Wear


I had completed all the items I had on my to-do list. It wasn't a very bad day. But Jerry could have made it much better if he had called. He didn't. Perhaps not yet.

As I lay on the bed alone with my pillows, I thought about Jerry. I thought about the happy moments we shared. I thought about the way he makes me blush. I thought about the day we. . .

20 Positive Quotes by Nigerians

A sweetheart read through my poems and quotes, and pointed out I do not promote quotes by Nigerians. "O-M-G! You are right!" I suddenly realized. So he offered to help with these quotes. :)

20 Positive Quotes by Nigerians


I love to read quotations. I’ll admit that I have a rather funny habit of keeping long lists of my favorites in my diary. I can't explain how few number of words keep my heart on.

11 'I Could have Died' Moments

Happy New Week! This might be the most emotional piece I've ever shared on here. *teary eyes* It feels like a reality told in the movies. But these are not made-up stories. I lived in these moments.

11 'I could have Died' Moments


So I stayed up all night thinking about my life. What am I doing, living? Why am I not dead yet? As I kept pondering over these questions. I remembered the moments I was close to death by just a second.

When you see death so close, you will learn to appreciate life.

How Shall This Be?

When I got back from church, I switched on my phone and read my messages. I ate, tweeted, and took a nap. In that nap, I imagined Mary as a girl. . .

How Shall This Be? 


I try to imagine Mary as a girl of about 14 or 15 years old being surprisingly visited by an angel, Gabriel for the first time.

It is normal for her to be scared. The angel had to calm her fears, so he says: "Don't be afraid; you've found favour with God."

Hiya! It's the third Friday for ROL(Reading Out Loud). I'm expected to read us a story. Right? But erm. . . something else came up. Today, I'll be reading from the best book of all times; the Bible.

Romans 7:14-25.

STORY: I Met Jerry (8)

Jerry's line has been off all morning. I was worried-sick. "what is happening??"

Another Her


Each time my phone rang, I had just one person on my mind. Just one.

I had received quite a number of calls that morning. But none of them was Jerry's.  I was disappointed when each voice I heard was not his.

PODCAST: Be Beautiful Like That

Yipee! It's Friday! A beautiful one at that. *smiles* Tell the closest person to you right now how beautiful he/she is. It will go a long way.
You are beautiful like that.
Alrightie, who remembers when I asked, what makes a woman beautiful? So I met this stranger who gave me the best answer ever. I will never forget his face. And most importantly, I will never forget the way he made me feel. I'll cherish it forever.

STORY: I Met Jerry (7)

Now we chat on social media because the phone calls aren't just enough. I really do enjoy the dynamics of social media and the power of emoticons.

Chats of Solomon


If Jerry and I were in a competition of "who is more romantic?" It would be a tie. We are too romantic at almost the same level. Being romantic is saying or doing things that show that you love someone. And Jerry and I express our feelings without any doubt or shame. We do not care who texted first, or replied last.

We can't help to say, "I love you."

He Stole My Tweet

I didn't want to make a big deal out of this but since I have nothing else to write about. Let's deal with it already!

He Stole My Tweet (Plagiarism)


When you don't find me on the blogosphere, I am probably on Twitterville. I like to tweet and read tweets. Doing that stirs my mind to think up words with just 140 characters. It inspires my creativity. Yup!

Why do People have to Die?

People are dying everyday. Someone died an hour ago. And someone is just about to die! I lost some dear ones last week. I cried. I cried. And I cried.

Why do People Die?


When a loved one passes away, we feel we have lost something precious. We are left with a gaping hole in our heart, and we often wonder why they were taken away from us. We start to ask the "why" questions.

"Oh no! Why?!" "Oh death, why!?" "Oh God, why?!"

NEWS: 3 Happy News I Found this Week

My heart currently prays for Ghana, Yobe state and Ondo state. This week has been a very sad one. The rate of oil tank explosions, death tolls and disease outbreaks have been on the high. We already know bad things are happening. But it's better to know that good things are happening too. So here, I've got some good news to inspire us. :)

3 Happy News I Found this Week


Out of the thousands of news out there, these 3 shined out enough for me to share.

PODCAST: Timing is Everything

It hasn't happened yet. And you're like;  "When, God, when?!" "For how long will I wait?!" You are tired. You are almost giving up. Hold on!

God knows what he is doing because He is never late. You have to understand that God is doing the very best for you right now.

STORY: I Met Jerry (6)

"I love you my baby boo. . ." ". . . Don't call me that. . ." "Ahan, so what should I now call you?" "Whatever you like but not that name used in all those worldly relationships. . ."

Goodbye Jerreasonable


It would make more sense if Jerry and I was taking a walk on the beach right now. I thought to myself.

We took a walk down the street. And I do not exactly enjoy walking with Jerry on a busy road. The noise on the streets which included cars hooting, people shouting and all that, distracts me from savouring the moment.
