For the sublimer side of our existence; I write here and hope for sublimer thoughts across board

OF THIS SORT, BLESS US LORD!

As far as I am concerned, it was already a difficult proposition marrying across ethnicity and if death had legitimately terminated this, why would Ruth persist? Continue reading

SOME EVERYDAY BLESSINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED

Coming back from Church today, a sight made me think… I saw a woman frying what looked like yams by the roadside. She was in a white T-shirt and a long-flowing skirt. What caught my eye wasn’t the yams or the dressing, but the fact that the left sleeve of the Tee was hanging – she had lost that arm.
Hmm… then it struck me… Just suppose I lose an arm, how would I type as I often love to do? How would I manage looking in the direction knowing that unlike a milk tooth or hair, it isn’t naturally vegetative to sprout back? I imagined the days and weeks it took for her to come to terms with her condition if she wasn’t born that way. Hmm…

Africa Is Unique and Beautiful!

Jesus and Joshua are Anglo-Grecian of the Hebrew/Arabic Yeshua (Yushua in some cases). All of these names mean “salvation”…I insist culture is dynamic but should be unique. Uniformity isn’t synonymous with unity, neither is assimilation the same as globalization.,,My argument is simple: let us be proud of who we are, even if we cannot be proud of what we are…Before I am misconstrued, I do not hate Europe or America. In fact, I see myself primarily as a member of the Human race with a constituency among the Black-African race…We have a great continent in Africa. The continent and its people are rich and beautiful. Continue reading
