Once upon a time extravagant grace wrote...

I carry your heart with me(I carry it in
my heart)
I am never without it(anywhere
I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
I fear no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)
I want no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart(I carry it in my heart)

Peace of mind

There's a peace I've come to know

Though my heart and flesh may fail

There's an anchor for my soul

I can say that it is well

You have overcome

This is where I draw my strength

The victory is won

I can see the dawning of a new day

So I will rise when you call my name

No more sorrow, no more pain

Cos you took them all

And placed them on your shoulders

Now I can be free

Living in total victory

This is what it feels to be held

To know that I will be more than fine

This is what it feels to be certain

To know that when its all broken down I will survive

This is what it feels to have peace

Peace beyond understanding

So I rest assured in this knowledge

In this great discovery of truth

My hope is found in you alone

A moment

There you go shifting my sands again
Just when I was getting comfortable
Liking what I see, you turn me upside down
I never know where we are heading
I am running blind, scared, petrified
Its more than I let on
What will tomorrow unfold?
I'm helpless and the feeling is not welcome
Its a great inconvenience on time and the plan
I want out, I want it back the way it was
So stop the world and let me get out
I just need a moment to catch my breathe
Stop the world, I'm running on empty
I need a moment just to hear your voice
Remind me that you will always be there
Tell me of your great strength and I need not fear
Let me feel your gentleness that calms my raging seas
Whisper softly to this heart of mine that is crying out to you
Make me whole, make me new
I need to be fixed, mended, made complete
Please take it all away from me
Cos I'm crumbling under the weight
Barely holding on, its out of my hands
It's out of my reach
It's over my head
And its out of my league
There's too many things
That I don't understand
So its in your will
And its out of my hands

Something borrowed, a timeless classic

Faithful one, so unchanging
Ageless one, You're my prince of peace
Lord of all, I depend on you
I call out to You, again and again
I call out to You, again and again

You are my Rock in times of trouble
You lift me up when I fall down
All through the storm
You're love is the Anchor
My hope is in You alone

Here is to Daddy

Spoke to mum on my birthday and she says baby girl, you are all grown up now,
Daddy would be so proud of the fine young woman you have become.
So that day I thought of all the days I wished that you hadnt gone away.
The day I finished my finals, my graduation, when I got my first job,
I miss you every day but more so on all my first days of everything.

I however thought to myself that I would remember you different that day.
I would remember why you meant the world to me
The reason why after so many years, am still not over you

I thought of how we talked about eveything
How we couldnt understand why mum was always late even though she got up the earliest
How you just let me be when I went into my moods
The way you laughed at funny things I said
The way you celebrated my achievements and picked me up when I didnt do so well
How you couldnt wait to have me back home when I went away
The way you gave me wings to fly and achieve my dreams
How you believed in me mostly when I wasnt so sure of myself
The way you set me straight when I was wrong
Your wisdom and outlook on life when I needed guidance
For letting me find and stand my own feet

I guess I could go on forever but the most important thing that you did is introducing me to the greatest friend there is to know.
So when I miss you so much it hurts to breath, I talk to this friend of ours and let Him know how much it hurts cos He understands.

I pray each day that somehow you are able to see me and share in my days though I cant see you.
If you were here this is what I would like to say " though I am all grown up now, I will always be your little girl".

I need my freedom

Who will let me out of this dreary relationship?
I am so in need of freedom.
Been in it for over a decade.

am tired and tired and tired of it.....


I love this group in Nairobi mostly at Alliance F..these guys are the craziest.

they teem with talent. they are a cut above in things comical. The Info below is about a play they are restaging....its a must watch if you are in Nairobi....

'Heartstrings Kenya, the top most theatre group in Kenya is back with the world's most acclaimed comedy "OUT OF ORDER"
Directed by Vic and Sam

Venue: Alliance Francaise
Times: 6.30pm weekdays, 3 & 6.30pm weekend

There is a whole government delegation that has attended a world conference abroad and such a setting never lacks sideshows going on behind the scenes in the hotel they are booked in. When Richard (Larry Asego), a Government Minister, plans to spend the evening with Jane (Chao Mkamzee), one of the Opposition's typists, things go disastrously wrong in this hugely successful, brilliant, lunatic, wildly funny when the Coalition Government finally turns and becomes Cohabitation Government

I'll be found in you

There's distance in the air and I cannot make it leave
I wave my arms round about me and blow with all my might
I cannot sense you close though I know you're always here
But the comfort of you near is what I long for

When i cant feel you, I have learned to reach out the same
When I cant hear you, I know you still hear every word I pray
And as I wait for you, maybe I'm made more faithful

All the folly of the past though I know its undone
I still feel the guilty one still trying to make it right
So I whisper soft your name and let it roll around my toungue
Knowing you're the only one who knows the real me

Show me how I should live this, show me where I should walk
I count this world as loss to me cos you are all I want
When the world has fallen from under me
I'll be found in you still standing
When the sky rolls up and mountains fall on their knees
when the time and space are through, I'll still be found in you.

Doing it my way

Sometimes my life just don't make sense at all
The mountains look so big and my faith just seems so small
When I wake up in the night I feel the dark
Its so hot inside my soul, I swear there must be blisters on my heart

Surrender don't come natural to me
This stubborn heart of mine is bent on taking the solo road
But I've beat my head against so many walls
I wonder what would it hurt to let go this time
Your grace rings out so deep it makes my resistance seem so weak

So hold me Jesus cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been king of my glory now wont you be my Prince of peace?

Take the wheel, take it from my hands cause I cant do this on my own
I'm letting go so give me one more chance and save me from this road I'm on

Broken Pieces, Hurts by a trusted Friend

Dear friend

I have to write this mail painfully to you. I came to you as a friend and sought your help.
To do business for a while from your quarters
little did i know i'd go through what am going through now.
The period i stayed with you is in no doubt a beautiful recollection
of the times we had together,
We played golf together...the boys day out we had together
and all the fun of watching drama unfold right before us,
entertainment and the music and the works.
It was something I’ve always been grateful about.

I came to work with you of my own voluntary basis.
No one forced me to it and I was glad you came through for me that way.

Yet I have heard things said to have emanated from you.
Things which if I had known they would be letting me go through the current pain am in I’d have thought twice before I came to you
You are buddies with my principal partner.
My partner knows from you that when I was working with you i'd come to the work late every day........Reaally???????????
You and my partner hatched out a plan......supposedly to capture the lose me and keep the dog in its kernel
You sat down together with my partner and planned to reign on this my behavior,
supposedly I was always out late with time wasters....(read women-[no mention if they added value to the business or not]) and always taking them out for movies and places etc.
I am shocked that the underlying reason for purpoting to help me get my own premises was not at all about me being independent but your warped concern that i was squandering my partners resources with the supposed time wasters.

Friend, this is the information you used to give to my partner, I understand.
But you went ahead and passed it to a third you bragging about it that you and my partner did organise things....,that you made sure i was joined by some workers who would pry on me.....
that as if that was not enough you organised so that my partners accounts assistants would join me so that i'd be compelled to spend more time with them and moreover they would check my waywardness
I feel grossly misrepresented, and moreover much abused by your actions.

When I came to you,
I did tell you that I was choosing you, so that I could be accountable to you for everything.
On this basis, whenever I was out, I’d tell you where I was,
not because I was bent on doing evil as it has been purported but to let you know as a brothers keeper;
that way I knew I was in a better position to be sensible in all I did.
Many times you brought up the subject of money and asked my opinion and I gave you my true opinion.
In other words, I was keeping it real with you. For you to misrepresent these facts to your friend and to others whom I may not know, this is truly heartbreaking.

I endeavored to go with you for many lunch dates and business functions.
In my view, it was always a man to man talk and walk. I don’t remember once recommending anything that would make for inchastity.
Oh man of immense integrity it looks like in those times of questions and queries, your only interest was to catch me on something and tell the Corporate auditor about it.

You, YOU forget that that You have shared many things with me that I have not shared with anyone. Tell me what would happen to you if i broke my silence about your little sins?
You my accountability partner, I feel wronged grossly by you.
Using the info i gave you day by day, you presented it to my partner in such a way my partner thought I was lying to them and therefore used your words to try to catch me in the wrong.
NOW the taxman is on my neck.....she demands that i show the true expenses that were for the company and those for me as an individual.
The good book teaches us how to correct erring people.
You needed to let me know exactly where I went wrong before you spoke to people about me. Maybe you told my partner so that i get sorted and know how to behave?????.
But why do you go telling people about how you people came up with this plan; that you arranged so that I could stop being out for most of the time? Did you consider the business i was doing out that time?

My dear Partner....You have chosen the way to walk in and who to believe in.
My pal has made you his slave mentally.
I am truly shocked by this information I have received.
I now understand why you have been asking a thousand and one questions about my operations...
from today i wont answer any.........just let your friend tell you what he knows.

Many thanks for this misrepresentation.

Another day

Wake up to the sunlight with the windows open
Dont hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
Wear your red dress, use your best dishes
Make a big mess and make lots of wishes
Have what you want but want what you have
And dont spend your life looking back

So go to the ballgames and go to the ballet
Go see your folks not just in the holidays
Hold all your loved ones, and love who you are
Dont hold on to hurts just let them go
Dont run from the truth cos you cant get away
Just face it and you'll be okay

Turn up the music, turn it up loud
Take a few chances, let it all out
Cos you wont regret looking back from where you've been
Cos its not who you knew, or what you did its how you lived

Wherever you are, wherever you've been
Now is the time to begin, make peace with God
And make pece with yourself cos in the end there is no one else

I thank God therefore for another day, another chance
To love the ones I love, to find my way
To laugh, to dance, to watch the sun come up
Another day I get to live as if every breath could be the last I take
I get another day

A DEBT OF $0.00


I found this hilarious in a thought for today by AllanSmith :


In March 1992, a man living near Boston, Massachusetts received a bill for his as yet unused credit card stating that he owed $0.00. He ignored it and threw it away. In April he received another and threw that one away, too.

The following month the credit card company sent him a very nasty note stating they were going to cancel his card if he didn't send them $0.00 by return of post. He called them, talked to them, they said it was a computer error and told him they'd take care of it.

The following month he decided that it was about time that he tried out the troublesome credit card figuring that if there were purchases on his account it would put an end to his ridiculous predicament. However, in the first store that he produced his credit card in payment for his purchases he found that his card had been canceled. He called the credit card company who apologized for the computer error once again and said that they would take care of it.

The next day he got a bill for $0.00 stating that payment was now overdue. Assuming that having spoken to the credit card company only the previous day and that the latest bill was yet another mistake, he ignored it, trusting that the company would be as good as their word and sort the problem out.

The next month he got a bill for $0.00 stating that he had 10 days to pay his account or the company would have to take steps to recover the debt.

Finally giving in, he thought he would play the company at their own game and mailed them a check for $0.00. The computer duly processed his account and returned a statement to the effect that he now owed the credit card company nothing at all.

A week later, the man's bank called him asking him what he was doing writing a check for $0.00. After a lengthy explanation, the bank replied that the $0.00 check had caused their check processing software to fail. The bank could not now process ANY checks from ANY of their customers that day because the check for $0.00 was causing the computer to crash.

The following month the man received a letter from the credit card company claiming that his check had bounced and that he now owed them $0.00 and unless he sent a check by return of post they would be taking steps to recover the debt.

The man, who had been considering buying his wife a computer for her birthday, bought her a typewriter instead.

Nice Things in Life Reprise

I knew you before you knew yourself.
like a confused bit of swam
you walked down the big aisle...not knowing i was seeing you and loving you.
You Went and walked to your suitor and said I do
and from then onwards became one

I loved you as you smiled and bowed and as you were kissed
I loved you as you made your way out after saying I do
now as one you were blossoming.. each time you became bigger
i still loved you

It was not a mercedes benz that bore you
It wasn't a chrysler, a porsche
Nothing like that
It was one so dear to you who bore you
Her life was watched by me
that at the final day you may come out strong and beautiful....

i loved you and though you never did see me
each little step you took i was there.
I watched you as you made your first things
what you did not know is that each first thing you did was glorious to me.

then you started knowing other things; you began to bite your bearer
you promoted yourself in ways unbecoming.
you began speaking things that made me sad.
you started behaving in the me, I and mine.
I still loved you

I see the effort you keep making.
your struggle to be good
your effort to be in good books
you seem to notice my eyes everytime you go wrong

I just wanted to remind you
that despite everything you are doing
despite the errors that beset you
despite the evils you see
I love you

Cos i died for you on a tree.
I watched you being formed in your mothers womb
I watched you being born
I am watching you now
Still i say
I love you

dont you worry,
you will enjoy the love i give
until you hear me saying to you
well done...........i love you.....when we are face to face

shocked!!!! under attack

My sister's facebook Address and she was reporting that she is shocked but she will recover.

She had a brush together with my old folks and my younger bro with rogues.


Am in dreamland, the time is about 1.00 am in the morning and my Phone rings. For no apparent reason, tonight i had forgotten to switch off my fon cos i don't like sleeping with it on. i see the name on the phone and her voice is i still dreaming?

She is shaking and puts off the phone. Before my clouded mind can awake, she calls again. She says..there are thieves breaking into the house, please call the police for us... don't i hate bad news from far. i can hear the noise of breaking wood. I assume its the doors

Now i am approx 300 miles away from them. i cant fly, only drive or use the slow public means.
I don't know what to do. this kind of news is ....dangerous to my health. Cos am diabetic and any stress brings sugar levels too high.

I try my best to look for Police i Know could add value at this is 'mteja'....wait a minute, there is this guy in the village who told me he belongs to the village vigilante....i call him. luckily he picks up his fon.

I back out my pleas. My family is in danger. Where is God at this time. i try to pray. its a whole lot of nerves now. My father the way i know him is a bit hard headed and may expose himself to danger by resisting the gang.

I call my sister....thankfully they still have not found her yet. she is nerves. she says the rest of the house is silent.....she does not know what is happening.

I disconnect my fon...the pain on the other end is too much to bear. i call my contact on the other hand. He has already mobilised guys in the vigilante....then i call another friend who has a car....'please see what you can do bro...' Not to worry. calm down and give me directions to your home...' then i think, why do i not even show my friends my old folks home?....after like DAYS in time* am able to finally explain to him the was the period i took to think as we spoke.

I call again my sister. She is crying and crying. 'they've cut dad, they've beaten up mom'
why is this happening to my family?

I disconnect again.... i call my friend again, the one with a car....'now it is a life saving mission. Just drive home direct, pick my dad and rush him to hospital....i can tell from his voice...he is crying too.

2.00 am am still trying to get in touch with home. I call mom's line. She's too shocked to speak. i call my sister again. She's calmed down. Now she knows what's happening.....My dad is in Hospital, My mom feels alright(????????) after all that beating? the doctors do a stitch job on my old man......they think he is not too bad......

I have to travel by road to go be with my people....meanwhile my friend reassures dad will be fine......

It was truly a weekend i would not wish to remember

A Chinozing?????(lol) day

One day Chinoz was enjoying the sun at the beach in Cape Town, South Africa. A lady came and asked him, " Are you relaxing?"
Chinoz answered, "No, I am Chinoz." Another guy came and asked him the same question. Chinoz answered, "No! No! Me Chinoz!" A third one came and asked him the same question again. Chinoz was totally annoyed and decided to shift his place. While walking He saw a certain guy soaking in the sun. He went up to him and asked, "Are you Relaxing?" This guy was a lot more educated and Answered, "Yes, I am relaxing." Chinoz slapped him on his face and said, "Stupid, idiot. Everyone is looking for you and you are sitting over here!" ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
Chinoz died and went to heaven. When he got to the pearly gate Saint Peter told him that new rules were in effect due to the advances in education on earth. In order to gain admittance a prospective heavenly soul must answer two questions:
1. Name two days of the week that begin with "T". 2. How many seconds are there in a year? Then Chinoz thought for a few minutes and answered... 1. The two days of the week that begin with "T" are today and tomorrow. 2. There are 12 seconds in a year.
Saint Peter said, "OK, I'll buy the Today and tomorrow answer, even though it's not the answer I expected. But how did you get 12 seconds in a year?"
Then Chinoz replied, "Well, January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd, December 2nd Saint Peter opens the gate without another word.
One day in his rural, having lost his donkey Chinoz, got down too his knees and started thanking God. A surprised passerby saw him and asked, "Your donkey is missing; what are you thanking God for?" Chinoz replied "I am thanking Him for seeing to it that I wasn't riding the donkey at that time, otherwise I would have been missing too."
One day Chinoz was traveling in a train. He felt sleepy so he gave the guy sitting opposite him on the train $20,000.00 to wake him up when the station arrived. This guy was a barber, and he felt that for
$20,000.00, the comrade deserved more service. So, when Chinoz fell asleep, the barber quietly shaved off his beard. When the train arrived, Chinoz was woken up, and he went home. Reaching home, he went to wash his face, and suddenly screamed when he saw himself in the mirror. Said his wife "What's the matter?"
He replied, "The cheat on the train has taken my $20,000.00 and woken up someone else". ************************************************************************************************************************
Chinoz went with his friend into a pub and after ordering two beers, they took some sandwiches out of their pockets and started to eat them.
"You can't eat your own sandwiches in here," complained the pub-owner. So the two then swapped their sandwiches.
Chinoz finished his English exam and came out. His friends asked him how he did his exam, for that he replied "Exam was okay, but for the past tense of THINK, I thought, thought, thought and at last I wrote THUNK!"
It was then the first time people were going for blood tests and Chinoz had a friend who had gone for one at a local clinic in Fio. Chinoz came and found him crying hell and asked, "Why are you crying?" The friend replied, "I came here for a blood test" Chinoz asked, "So? Are you afraid?" The friend replied, "No, not that. During the blood test they cut my finger". Hearing this Chinoz also started crying & screaming. His friend was astonished and asked him, "Why are you crying?" Chinoz then replied, "I have come for my urine test." ************************************************************************************************************************

Have a Chinozing day.

When words Hurt

Michael Card sang this song ... "I Will Not Walk Away,"

these words speak the thoughts of a broken heart: "Don't read me pointless poems friend. Don't diagnose. Don't condescend. Though you may be right to disagree. I need someone to weep with me."

Do we feel like this lots of times? are we also not guilty of talking too much to the broken hearted? aren't i very fond of telling people not to cry?

Nice things in life

One Joyunspeakable wanted to know what I was up to during Easter. By the way, I have a brilliant memory and remembers things in shocking details. so now you know better than get into an argument with me over things said in the past or not said!This is among the very nice things I remember

It feels like yesterday,
the day I knew you were the one
and I knew I needed you,
couldn't, wouldn't make it alone.

The salty taste in my mouth,
not of blood, but of warm tears,
as I cried and clung to you,
not because I was hurting
but because I had this warmth,
this joy, this gladness
peace and calm like I had never known

The clinging, the wanting, the needing
not because you were going to go away,
but because I couldn't get enough of you
I couldn't remember how I had lived without you
if I lived without you at all

Its been a while since I felt this way
sometimes I've let you down,
I've bruised your heart,
maybe broken it a couple of times
I've cheated,
I've been unfaithful.

But you've been there,
you've held me when I cried,
you've come through for me
you've covered my back
even when the ones I trusted ran
or turned against me,
or didn't like me like before.

So today I reminisce on our walk together
and I'm filled with this joy, this gladness
peace and calm like on the very first day we met
and I ask if its been worth it
and you're nail scared hands tells me
you did it all for me
then I know, its all been worth it.

My life is captivating or so i think. The easter weekend was spent in trying to remove clatter from my house. Now my wife is a wonderful person but she likes holding on to the past lots; including things she doesn't really need. Am not about to tell wat else she holds onto.

I on the other hand will easily throw away anything am not using except electronics n wires...And photographs. I discovered mystery of all mysteries that i do have a train of snaps all carelessly maintained from my childhood to the present, almost four decades worth of experience....Isn't that clatter or what? The number of the snaps could be about one thousand. They are all in hard print. I cant imagine buying picture albums cos I'll end up creating another nightmare in terms of space. Its not cosy to store them on a comp.

Now blogthrens how do i sort this picture mess? Mind u all these snaps are so dear to me cos they tell the story of my life.

Ideas Ppo.

    All for us

    Did you rise the sun for me, or paint a million stars that I may know your majesty?
    Is your voice upon the wind, is everything I've known marked with the makers fingerprints?

    The precious blood of Jesus Christ redeems, forgiven I'm alive, restored, set free
    Your majesty resides inside of me forever I believe

    Arrested by your truth and righteousness, Your grace has overwhelmed my brokenness
    Convicted by your spirit, led by Your word, Your love will never fail

    Cause I know you gave the world your only son for us to know your name
    To live within the saviours love and He took my place knowing He'd be crucified
    And You love, yes You loved a people undeserving

    And You saw me, when you took a crown of thorns and Your blood washed over me
    And You loved me through the nails that You bore and Your blood washes over me

    Amazing love like no other, grace without an end
    As Your word promised You died and rose again

    My several

    I'm not sure on the order of priority so here we go!

    1. I do not own a mirror in my house. I have no idea why but I have just never seen the point of having one. My friend says I am modest, another one says I need a mirror in my house. Some do not believe I don't own one because I dress well and they wonder how I know the clothes are right. Its a feeling, I have to feel what I wear otherwise we are not going anywhere-I like that.

    2. I have a great sense of fashion-whatever I pick looks good and authentic-so its hard convincing my friends that I sometimes pick my clothes from tush-

    3. I love high heels because I think they are sexy and make one look good-but I can't walk in them-I try and sometimes I pull through-those are the shoes I never give out-if I cannot wear them I will look at them!

    4. Grey's anatomy is currently rocking my world, Parachute Band's Amazing is in my ear right now

    5. I am a die hard fun of Kumbamba Radio

    6. I do not like people who repeat things, it bores me to tears.

    7. And speaking of tears, I'm not the everyday teary girl. I don't cry over movies or when people die-I cry over things yes, but when I do its bad-real bad and sometimes you wouldn't expect.

    8. I find it funny and weird if you may that people break up and make up over and over. I'm the kind who when we break up that's it, I mean if it didn't work the first time what makes you think it will this time? and no we can't be friends!(well, at least not immediately).

    9. I love electronics-phones, cameras, music systems, ipods you name it. And yes, I repair my own when they have issues.

    I'm a good cook, very good one at that. I like the good things of life, I love dearly, wholeheartedly, I smile from my heart, I laugh from deep within.

    Random thoughts

    Was God smiling when He spoke the words that made the world?
    Did He cry about the flood?
    What does God's voice sound when He sings, when He is angry?
    This are just afew things that the angels have on me

    Well I cant fly at least not yet
    I've got no halo on my head
    I cant even start to picture heaven's beauty
    But I've been shown a saviour's love
    The grace of God has raised me up
    To show me things that angels long to look into
    And I know things angels only wish they knew

    And someday I will sit with my angel friends up in heaven
    And they'll tell me about creation
    And I'll tell them a story of grace

    Instrument in God's Hands

    Chosen me; out of lostness
    Broken He; but in innocence
    Pardon me; that His Presence
    Condone me; dirt or a menace
    Wanting me;bit of a nuisance
    Granting me; fit for Holiness
    An instrument in your hands today
    an idol i was yesterday in hell totally
    an hindrance in ways you have tendered
    an instrument in your hands today
    Praise be to God
    Who's grace abounds
    I am being touched by Your Hands
    Being molded by your hands
    Being loved into what You Will
    Now like a guitar
    sharply tuned and playful
    the Master Skilfully plays me
    I am awash with His Song.
    I am an instrument In His Hands

    My six

    1. I am loud.....I laugh loud, speak loud most of the time, I live life out loud no reservations

    2. I have about six pairs of black trousers and I can tell them apart, why I have so many I really don't know they just seem to accumulate

    3. I have given up counting the number of pairs of shoes I have my greatest weakness, when I can afford a house of my own I will have a shoe room for them to go on display

    3. I am punctual to a fault and that makes me hate waiting, I simply do not understand why some people are always late it just doesn't work for me, I panic when I am late even if its for the most insignificant thing

    4. I am a daredevil I just cant resist a dare the number of things I have done cos of a dare are numerous and most of them put me into trouble but hey one has to make most of this life live for the moment

    5. they say I am stubborn, I call myself a free spirit. Being told what to do just doesn't sit well with me. The thing am told not to do ends up being what I exactly do so that tells you am not a favourite of authority

    6. This should have come first but oh well. MUSIC all kinds and dancing my new found passion. I cant get enough of it everywhere every hour every minute cant do without music

    7. Bonus cos am good like that..... I cry alot, watching a good movie, reading a good book even when I laugh so hard I cry, beautiful song I weep, when am so happy I end up crying when am sad I wail when I say goodbye its just never ending I sometimes cry for no reason(strange I know)

    Praise from my mouth

    Lord my God, how majestic is your name
    You've displayed the splendour of you glory
    When I gaze at the night and see your works
    The mo0on and the stars that you have set in place
    Oh what am I that you should think of me
    And who am I that you would care for me

    You have ordained, praise from my mouth
    So I will praise, yes I will praise

    You have made me a little lower than the angels
    And you crown me with glory and majesty
    All authority through you is mine
    Over all things on earth and all in the air
    What am I that you should think of me
    And who am I that you should care for me

    And you have silenced all my enemies
    With my praise you have silenced all my enemies

    You have ordained praise from my mouth
    So I will praise, yes I will praise

    Excess luggage

    Last week I went out of town for an overnight stay so I had to pack an overnight bag which ended up being a suitcase........women I know. My 'dad' thought it was insane how much stuff I carried whenever we went away from home but thats just me. I am always the last to be checked in at an airport because I have to pay for excess luggage. There is always a trailer attached to the car to carry my extra bags.

    The thing is I am always at a loss of what to pack and what to leave. Not that I am concious about what I wear but I dont like ending up to need something and I have not got it, I just get frustrated. At work they have a joke about my handbag cos you could fit a football easily in it and when we run out of supplies,they always joke that you can find some in my bag. I call it being prepared for any situation. Thats what they have been grooming me in university for. You dont turn up unprepared, you research and find all flaws and strong points, you dont ask questions you dont already know the answers to. If all that fails you resort to putting on a great performance and that I can easily do.

    Anyway where am I going with this luggage thing? I attend a graduation ceremony and bump into some guy from Primary school....what are the odds small world eh. It takes a while for me to register his face but he has no problem in figuring out who I am. We chat and he starts laughing about something that happened what seems like a world away. He reminds me that when we left school I wasnt speaking to him and the story came flooding back to mind

    He had teased me about not being good enough about something and the reason was that I was a girl. In my mind at that time, that was a great insult that I could not let it go. After a great telling off that left his ears ringing, I never spoke to him again.

    My mum always says that were it not for God, I wouldnt forgive.......I agree to disagree. Along the way there are people I have branded morons and though I have professed to have forgiven, I dont forget I can hold a grudge for ages without wavering. My excuse is that I dont forget, I have a mind that remembers the first poem I ever did in school, the lines to plays I have taken part in, how can I forget?

    It becomes worse when I do something that is completely out of character, I am my worst enemy, I beat myself up over and over again there is no end to it. Does that weigh me down oh yes and there is a hefty price for this excess luggage.

    It buffles my that God in all His wisdon is patient with the likes of me, waiting at the end for me to run into His arms. What kind of love is this? How could He know me so well yet love me the same? I am overwhelmed

    So I am learning to fly light
    Each day I am letting go
    Dreams shattered
    Wounds not healed
    Promises broken
    They cant hold me back
    With arms open wide
    I am embracing whats new
    My excess luggage
    I leave it with with Jesus

    where did I put my glasses

    I was late this morning because I couldn't find my glasses. For some reason they weren't where I thought I had left them the night before. I searched everywhere I could think possible for them but still couldn't find them. This meant everything would take longer to do cos I am approaching blind. My makeup brushes took longer to find, never mind the tiny earrings that I have been wanting to wear for a while.

    Oh well looked like it would be contacts day i said to myself.

    Off to the bathroom I went to try n get them in my eyes and guess what? one of them fell in the sink and hard as I tried, I just couldnt pick it out, it was gone for good and that was my last pair...................

    Oh joy I was definitely going to be late don't matter how fast I got ready. But what good would it be to venture out to work of I couldn't see was needed. I asked my sister to come help me look for my glasses. So there we were on our hands and knees searching everywhere possible and just as I was about to loose hope, there they were under my pillow. Now how they got there is a mystery in itself but hey I could see.

    So out of the door got into the car and off to work and as usual stuck in traffic. Normally I would get so agitated about waiting but not today, I reflect upon my morning fiasco. I realised how much I depended on my glasses, my whole world would come to a halt if I didn't have them unless God restored my sight.

    Then that got me thinking of how broken a person I am, so in need of mending that I can not stand on my own. If for some reason I ever broke my legs I would appreciate the use of a wheelchair or some crutches.

    But I haven't got broken legs, am just broken from within and I am so glad that I have Jesus to lean on while He puts me back together again piece by piece. He is not a crutch.... no He is the bone in my leg, the very reason for my being.

    Only the world

    Been a hard one, been a bad one, been a tough one, been a sad one,
    Its been one of those days that keep chipping away in my heart
    Nothing new here, its what I do here, its a steriotypical day in this life
    I'm surrounded by all the pain and the strife but I know its alright
    Cos its only the world I'm living in
    It's only a day I've been given
    There aint no way I'm giving in
    Cos its only the world
    I know the best is still yet to come
    Cos even when my days in the world are done
    There's gonna be so much more than only the world to me

    Anybody can you hear me? Do you feel me: I mean do you feel me
    I know I'm not the only one bearing the weight of this world
    We've got problems-say its alright
    Take a good look around, we're just stuck on the ground for a little while
    Cos heaven is a place where every tear on every face will be wiped away
    Oh and I cant wait to go but for now its enough to know that this is only to the glory of His name
    Its only the world

    Everything I Needed to Know About Life I Learned From a Jigsaw Puzzle:
    1. Don't force a fit -- if something is meant to be, it will come together naturally.
    2. When things aren't going so well, take a break. Everything will look different when you return.
    3. Be sure to look at the big picture. Getting hung up on the little pieces only leads to frustration.
    4. Perseverance pays off. Every important puzzle went together bit by bit, piece by piece.
    5. When one spot stops working, move to another. But be sure to come back later (see #4).
    6. The creator of the puzzle gave you the picture as a guidebook. Refer to the Creator's guidebook often.
    7. Variety is the spice of life. It's the different colors and patterns that make the puzzle interesting.
    8. Working together with friends and family makes any task fun.
    9. Establish the border first. Boundaries give a sense of security and order.
    10. Don't be afraid to try different combinations. Some matches are surprising.
    11. Take time often to celebrate your successes (even little ones).
    12. Anything worth doing takes time and effort. A great puzzle can't be rushed.
    13. When you finally reach the last piece, don't be sad. Rejoice in the masterpiece you've made and enjoy a well-deserved rest.

    The Lord is my Light and My Salvation

    I forget. I forget the promise,
    I forget that no foe has a chance against my Lord.

    I forget that there is no enemy who can come close to overcoming the
    stronghold of the Lord.

    I forget that God is strong enough, powerful enough, wise enough,
    loving enough, resourceful enough, and is determined to protect me
    from anything, or anyone that may try to harm me.

    When life gets dark I forget that He is my light. When I am in the
    midst of battle I forget that He is my salvation. When I feel weak and
    weary and worn-down I forget that He is my stronghold.

    I forget, so I must learn to remind myself

    When others are afraid, or discouraged, or weary, or near defeat, I
    must remember to remind them.

    So, just in case that description fits you, I remind you, "The Lord is
    your light and your salvation-whom shall you fear? The Lord is the
    stronghold of your life-of whom shall you be afraid?"

    Am impassed not just by two politicians, but impassed. my prayer life is impassed. i pray and it hits (or is it heats) the roof, i call out loud and am impassed. my one true friend has impassed me.

    Jesus, surely your goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, surely you'll keep me in perfect peace (he whose mind is stayed on thee), surely oops.......i digress

    i looked at my life and found the reasons. i was pushing my own agenda. i fought and fought but the thing was my agenda. it has conditions that Jesus must meet, my beloved friend must meet, and you wont believe it, i also lay conditions about the kind of life i will live with the Lord. he is a know a silent listener to my foul speech, callous nature and party spirit.....surely he was not going to be head over this my house? am impassed.

    woi Raila, woi Kibaki.... YOU ARE JUST but proving one thing. your selfishness is true of me everyday......i'd do the same thing if i were in your as i pray for the impasse in the nation to end, i am only too aware that you have no power of your own to stop being selfish. i will believe in His Spirit.....cos its not by might, nor by power but by his spirit.

    So dear Lord. clear this great chasm for me and my friend and this nation. it is all i ask.

    sad today?

    There is good reason for everything today. There will be good reason for everything tomorrow. What we do today when we are sad will determine tomorrows everything.

    comment on kenyan situation

    Open your eyes to the good things that God is doing. If you don't see them its not because he isn't doing it but you are too preoccupied with anxiety. 'Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God'
    All the time fear occurs remember, it is not backed by heaven. Heaven backs peace, love and contentment
