Staying Strong

Don't try to sell sadness to me, babe I ain't buying. 

I Just went through a phase of my life when I had to be strong for myself. I had to stand up for myself to put me together. It wasn't all that easy, trust me. You know, when the bible says not to reply evil for evil but the seduction of repaying evil is just great. 

Think of those times when someone you dearly in your heart hurts you so deep(do you strong thing) that y
ou could be tempted to not forgive, but rather wish the person be run over by a speeding trailer. However, forgiveness wouldn't be so hard if we understood that such individuals that hurt us also hurt christ, even more yet he died for them. It's possible that those people are going through depression, mid life crisis or even having sucidal thoughts. 
Love is patient, love is kind, love does no evil and love keeps no records of wrong. I leave you with a choice of setting yourself free from the negative energy of unforgiveness or you could put yourself in that, 'How could they do this to me room.' For me, I believe christ forgave me so I could forgive others as well. Forgiveness is liberating. Let go of a grudge today. 
Have a positive day.

My Father!

So, guys it's official. I'm back! Yippee!

 After the too long hiatus, I'm finally back. It wasn't an intentional break though but let's just thank God I'm back. I promise to keep you glued, educated and informed like I used to .

 So I'm starting a series called, My Father. It entails most of my childhood experiences centred around my father.
There's no better way to get over a memory than laughing over it.
So join me as I laugh over pain, laugh at the sorrows and make good comedy out of it.
Growing up has a way of bringing so many nostalgic thoughts to a person. You see, time actually does a lot in lightening up things.

Situations that seemed so gargantuan could easily be eased by the cooling balm of time. So, this is one of those thoughts.

My father and I used to live together. I had a step sibling who was a baby about this time. You know, I remember my dad taking me out on my birthday, buying me nice stuffs and all but I think…

My Independence Day Vegetable soup Recipe

Happy Independence Day Nigeria! My bad. I know I should have  done this yesterday but I was way too sick to even get out of my bed.  As a patriotic Nigerian that I am,  I thought of what to do to celebrate my country on her Independence. I  wanted to sing the national anthem but somehow my muse told me to cook!

So, I'm like...  What in the world I'm I supposed to cook. Instagram is so full of makeup artists with the green and white artistry .So as a food freak, I decided to show my allegiance by cooking this vegetable soup since it's green and my country's Independence colours are green and white.
So here's how to prepare the soup!


Sorry palm oil is part of the recipe but I couldn't get a perfect picture adding the palm oil so I cropped it out. 
Boil the meat and fry.  Boil water and soak the veggies in it. Then rinse severally and cut. I like this method of cleaning vegetable because it helps me retain some of the nutrients lost in cutting before…
