Quick note

Hey everyone, haven't posted in a bit.
Its been such a week.
Hidden behind all the laughter of the past few days has been a mind worn out from thoughts of 'what if's' and thanksgivings.

I went for a funeral two days ago. The second funeral of a friend I've been unfortunate to attend. It was crazy.
I mean I couldn't even shed a tear when he was taken to be buried. And I thought, maybe the best way to grief is to shake it off and move on.
We get to a stage where we know griefing takes you no where and thus what you're left with is an option to move on and try your best to live your best, or you get stuck in a place of hopeless fear of the future and of your now.

I should resume regular posts soon.
This is just a little quickie as I head to abuja.
Speaking of Abuja... What's happening in the country is crazy.
I refuse to believe we've come to a place where even heading to the market gives you the creeps 'what if there's a crazy bomber there?'

Everyones scared there's no immediate solution to this because we have a "weak president"
I am and will always remain a hope addict. Afterall 'God is still looking for the weak and foolish things of the earth to manifest His strength and wisdom (1Cor1:26-29)'
So whatever it is we label him as, there's still hope.
One way or the other peace will reign again.

  6. I'm so sorry for your loss. I don't think this whole bombing thing is due to a "weak" president, Nigerians have just graduated from robbery to ritual killing to kidnapping and now terrorism. Whatever the government, these things will keep happening. I hope it never comes to this but a military administration might soon be the only solution.
