DAY TWENTY-NINE: Seasons

“While the earth remains,Seedtime and harvest,Cold and heat,Winter and summer, andDay and night shall not cease.” Life is in seasons. That anyone does not know or understand this will not exonerate him or her from the consequences of changes in season. It is a perpetual ordinance for the earth; it remains for as long as…

Changing Times

There was once a time, when there were so many views to events that are happening; now those who have views are very measured with them. One would ask: “Why?” “What changed?!” Time in itself is the tester of all utterances; surely if what is said falls to the ground, the speaker may have spoken…

Where is (YOUR) Fortune?

Fortunes, they say, favours the brave . . . nothing significant comes from easy places. If beauty would ever come out from chaos, and problems would become blessings in disguise, resources must be spent on them, wherever they are. There is a lot of value and great wealth in mundane and regular experiences. So, wherever…

What is [YOUR] Value?

Certainly, no one is bereft of value; it is either it is unknown or it is known and underutilized.

“Now You Are Ready…”

After a very heavy bowl of food, I decided that tonight is not an evening I wouldn’t do my evening walk. So, I laced my sneakers and set out with this beautiful music from Dunsin Oyekan in my ears (Na You!) A few steps into my walk, the first thing I heard in my spirit…

When the set time has come, a manifestation of unexplainable circumstances would begin and this is when most people becomes troubled when they should be thrilled and excited. Except you prefer to live a false life, you will…

The Gift of Time

A valuable lesson I have learnt in life is that time is a gift…a very rare type of gift. It cannot be stored,It cannot be kept;It cannot be saved, we only save ourselves with respect to it,It is used without permission or notice. It is given without a request,It is received, each passing day, piece…

Tales of Two Ways

There are two ways that lead to a spot I frequently go to from my house. One is tarred and clean but it is a very long way. I only use it when the day is drawing to a close and I want to take an evening walk. When time is of essence, it is…
