“Many years ago, I came into a profound realization that God brought me into this world to my parents with this gender, this skin, this hair, these eyes, this mind, this physique for a reason.Continue reading The Right Skin→
When I look at old pictures of you, I see God’s girl Legacy. I often wonder if you remember me. I really don’t want to bother you, so please save your energy. We haven’t talked in a while. Funny how distance blends time together.
Humans are relational beings; and thus, we owe our existence to the ability to cultivate relationships that sustain our mental, physical, emotional and psychological tranquility. In every relationship, there are roles played by each correspondence, and these roles are defined by several factors; age, position, class, family, culture, spirituality, and tradition. This plays out in such a way that it creates dominant and subordinate(dependent) individuals in the relationships. Interestingly, as adults we play both roles of being both dependent and dominant at the same time, across different relationships, and thus there is a diffusion of a learned trait from a relationship circle to another one; and this goes on and on, creating a tangle of relationship traits.Continue reading ABUSE & MANIPULATION→
Blessed is that lady whose father has shown her how a man should be. Blessed is she whose father hugs and kisses her daily. The one whose father said to her:
“you shall be great”. “Greatness is your name.”
Blessed is that one whose father taught her to clean, to cook, to make the bed, to be organized, to keep to time, to be kind, to be giving, to be humble, to be respectful. Blessed is that lady whose dad calls her ‘my princess‘. Who tells her ‘you are beautiful’. ‘You are a gift from God to me’. Whose father never challenged her gender. Whose father said to her ‘blessed are you among men’. Whose father prays over her life. Blessed is that woman whose husband is loved by her father.
Blessed is she whose father is a lover of her mother. Blessed is she who learns what a home should be. For she will be great. ‘She will not stand before mean men’. So blessed am I for the divine gift of a father. Blessed be God for this great man in my life. One so irreplaceable. So kind, so loving, so blessed, so gifted, such a gift. Happy Father’s day my darling father.
Woman! Oh Woman! thou art precious! Everywhere and anywhere In different shapes and shades, Nevertheless, the most unique living creature on this planet!
Some see her as an object While some see her as a life force. For she lays seamlessly at the heart of existence; The world itself will be null and void without her.
Your perspective about her is directly proportional to your experience She is a life giver yet deadly, Pleasure giver yet a pressurizer, It all depends on you.
Man! Oh Man! It is time for your perspective to shift. It is time to behold not just her physical beauty, but the workings of her very being. It is time to see the potential, creativity, and gifts. The uniqueness, the greatness and the brilliance within her that shines like the sun.
Love your woman and you will find true joy. Speak life into her and see life in yourself. Give her all your attention and enjoy a life of undiluted peace. Bless her and enjoy a blissful home.
One man said ‘But variety is the spice of life’. Yet, he has failed to realize that real variety is in one woman For a woman can be likened to this planet, Your location determines your experience and allocation.
Have you toured the world of your woman? Have you enjoyed the variety she has to offer? Have you been through her skies, seas, and dry lands? Before you make your conclusion about her, travel the length and breadth of her planet.
