Never count them chicks

A good friend once told me, "To assume is to make an ass out of u and me."


That friends is where my thinking capacity reached...will follow up sometime. As for now Merry Christmas. Jesus is the reason.

The wait

The wait.

When God made the heavens
And the earth and the sun,
When he opened His mouth
And life came from His lips-
There was no worry
Not a care, not a thought
For the peace of the man
Who would later be born.

This I speak as a man
Not a God who had a plan,
For His eyes like an eagle
Seeing further than time,
They fathomed and saw
The error to fall,
And from time began
God took thought for man.

For when man was born
And woman from him,
The morning star
with jealousy sought
A way to undress man
Of God's good grace,
To strip Him of might
That was given to him.

And so when he ate
Fruit of conscience,
Flaming swords did check
Man from garden sweet.
And man so groaned
From labour's toils
And death and sickness
Did use him raw.

But God, He was wounded
From fellowship spoiled
He sought man for a friend
But sin did it end.
Yet with eagles' eyes
Seeing farther than time
Yes He had a plan
To bring fellowship back.

But the wait was long
The wait for breath,
For we were dead
In sin of birth.
Ages came, ages went
Still the wait
For His plan to save.

And Abraham and Isaac
And Jacob did wait
And Joseph and Moses
And Joshua did wait.
Rahab, Naomi and Ruth,
Did wait
And all the prophets of
God did wait.

How they hoped to see
The son,
The sun of righteousness
Dawning in man's life.
How they yearned
And hungered for Him
The Prince of Peace
To set them free.

Who would have known
When he would come,
Where he would land
Would be obscure?
A tiny town
A humble couple,
A manger for
The welcome of peace.

Yet did he come
And sheperds did see
And magi did worship
The come saviour king.
And Anna the prophetess
Simeon the priest
Witnessed the arrival
Of salvation of man.

He would live to
Heal the sick
Break the shackles
Set captives free.
He would raise the dead
Proclaim peace
Give his life
And set men free.

But how blessed are we
Who know Him now,
Who no longer wait
For coming Sun.
He has come to live
In our very hearts
And make bridge the wall
That cut us from God.

What a privilege to know
That we have Christ
Who so many champions
Of old waited for.
We have Him in this day and age,
Alive in our hearts.
We have Him!!!! Hallelujah
He lives. Immanuel, God is with us!!

Lord, now You will let Your servant depart in peace, according to Your word.
For my eyes have seen Your Salvation
which You have prepared before the face of all the peoples,
a light for revelation to the nations, and the glory of Your people Israel.
Luke 2:29-32

Dearest Ugandan Girl

Sometimes my world turns into dark shades,
Shadows of black and grey;
The air becomes dry and cold,
Suffocating the warmth of joy;

My life, a rugged canvas of gloom,
Knowing no touch of colour-
The kind of colour
That would turn hope into a comely picture.

But in many of those days darling,
You've been the beautiful stroke of paint
That brings meaning to this canvas,
The vivid wet living colour
That brings beauty to this picture.

You've very often been God's choice paint brush
To bring real beauty and meaning
Back into my life,

so I pray I can also be
God's choice paint brush
To bring real beauty and meaning
Back into your life

Especially when you are low,
Not at peace and feeling sad.

Allow me to be a blessing
In the times life becomes a challenge-
For you've been a cup of delight
In the days my world was a storm.

Love you.

Closing her chapter.

I went for a wedding on Saturday; the Church service. A friend of mine was getting married to a sweetheart. I love weddings- I make sense of them; I'm a freak for aesthetic value. So I prefer the Church service to the reception. I am not going to tell you how the service went, I want to touch on a number of points in today's post so won't have time for that.

Well, going to the wedding, I anticipated to see her coz she is a close friend of the bride nonetheless I was fine, no quaking. I was going to be G.

So church was going on when this graceful light skinned belle walked in in a short black evening dress. Don't worry, I didn't She still looked great. I only saw her from the back but she sat a small distance from me. Later on, I noticed the boyfriend was there with her and I thought, "How noble".

After service ended I greeted some friends I hadn't seen in a while which was great but didn't seem to see her. I didn't mind really, till I began walking to the stage to grab a taxi....Lonesomeness invites deep thought so I began thinking again about her and him. That Saturday I did think about her a whole lot.

However, Monday came. I had an appointment with a friend and as we talked about the biz, I saw her pic and his on a brochure and it struck me. This is what I wanted. I did not particularly want her back in my life, I just wanted to know she was happy. And seeing them here on the brochure as well as on Saturday, I felt peace. On Saturday I was feeling silly coz I had realised the same but was blaming myself for being the problem in their relationship- a jigger, nsekere etc... I had beaten myself up about it on Saturday but with help from a beloved friend, I knew I on the brink of freedom.

So on Monday I realised this is what I wanted for her- to be happy. That smile on her face with him was enough to convince me. I decided to take a step of faith; to be out of her life for good. It is the proof of love I have for her. I want them to be happy.

Thank God that is dealt with.

1Co 13:4,5 Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud;
love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs;

Woody Tiger

I had to chip in...honest.

It's been a year since the Obamania started and thankfully it is dying down; well I do not hear a lot about him any more anyway. However there is another black man in the media at this time again; also has mixed race blood but difference is his wife is caucasian ((muzungu) and his name too- Tiger Woods.

Barack Obama has an edge (don't ask what kind of edge) over other black American men in the media coz his name sounds African, more like Tupac Shakur (RIP) than Christoper Wallace (RIP) and Tiger Woods.

Now, if any one did not know Tiger and Obama they would instinctively think the latter was African and the former muzungu. However, the point here is not the man's name.

I find it annoying each day when big news networks like CNN give "breaking news" on Tiger Woods, over issues like "new information about the night of Tiger's car accident" or "Tiger's mother-in-law admitted with stomach issues" or "He asked mistress not to leave her name on the voice mail"! I mean blistering thunderballs, the man is not Jesus Christ!

Can we all be perfect all the time? I don't think Tiger Woods was a role model for men, maybe golfers but not many men, instead he was a role model-husband for many women out there and that is where the women who were interviewed on CNN annoy me- for saying things like "If Tiger cheated, won't my husband cheat too?"! Double dang!

It would be great to see men who are good and faithful husbands (I believe these exist although they may be far from the public eye) but when a good man falls, why make a spectacle out of it? Yes, he has had extra marital affairs and that is bad! But the man has admitted his "transgressions" and wants to change. Why do the devil's job for him? Condemn the poor man?

The truth is all have sinned and fall short of God's glory. No one can claim to be perfect there fore it is no use wallowing and making fun of one man's speck when we have logs. Let God judge, leave Tiger alone.

There is good news even in this trouble, we are justified freely by His (GOD) grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus;

Many of us have messed up, that ain't the end, God wants your salvation not your punishment. Let Tiger sort himself out as we also do ourselves, coz I remember Christ said to the men who wanted to condemn the adulterous woman of adultery:

But as they continued to ask Him, He lifted Himself up and said to them, He who is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.
And again bending down, He wrote on the ground.
And hearing, and being convicted by conscience, they went out one by one, beginning at the oldest, until the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
And bending back up, and seeing no one but the woman, Jesus said to her, Woman, where are the ones who accused you? Did not one give judgment against you?
And she said, No one, Lord. And Jesus said to her, Neither do I give judgment. Go, and sin no more. (Joh 8:7-11)

Eze 18:23 Do I actually delight in the death of the wicked? says the Lord Jehovah. Is it not that he should turn from his ways and live?


Meanwhile, I am looking forward to Christmas, are you?
