  2. God opened my eyes to refine a business strategy I had tried out in the past. Now, I have started making money from it online. I remember how discouraged I was then in 2018 when things weren't working despite all the study and what not. I thought the dream was dead, not knowing it was only buried for a while. I have picked the lessons and refined things. Digital is the way to go. Thank You Jesus. I give glory to You.

  4. I learnt to stay awake till day break.
    A tale?so many,I don't know how to narrate in a funny way, but one I remembered,last week I was telling my hubby I would make spaghetti and beans sepreatly.
    In the evening I came out to throw away my bin,my neighbor saw me and said I made her to cook what she had never cooked before.
    I was surprised and asked her how?
    We had not seen the whole day prior to that moment.
    She said she heard me telling my hubby I want to cook beans and spaghetti,so she went to cook beans and spaghetti together,her family could not eat it she had to throw it away.
    I told her why can you not just mind your business.
    You always want to know what I and my family are into.
    She felt embarrassed I guess.
    Two days later my kids feel very sick,my second kid came out one day and she was asking why is your lips so dry and my daughter told her she and her two siblings were sick.
    In the evening she saw me and said how are the chi.....(guess she remembered what I told her)
    And she changed to how is the family.
    I said fine think you.
    I have learnt to cope with her ,it's just the both of us leaving in a four flat.
    A big compound.
    When we see, we just greet.

    6. Please be nice. It's just the two of you in the compound. You could have easily laughed over what she said and throw in a jab. Life is easier with friendly faces around, except you see something you're not saying here in her. Cheers.

    13. Is your voice that loud that someone outside can here within your 4 walls? Or you stand at your door to announce the days meal?

      Even at that be careful so that your private infomation is not leaked unconsciously.

      Take care.

      Delete
    14. Your neighbor is very dangerous. Why is she monitoring what you cook?

      That is how the demons around us keep complaint we cook all the time even though we only cook once or twice daily.

    4. As a single lady, the kind of guys I pray fervently against to God. Why? Cos there's a curse for this wicked act you've perpetrated. Your wife will be slept with on the roof. Check God's reply to David when he slept with someone's wife. These actions have consequences. It's a curse. Better repent genuinely!!!

  6. Just here to say to everyone to give themselves grace.
    If because of conditions like data, electricity, money, you haven't been able to do what you want to do, you will definitely read comments but do not allow yourself to get discouraged by them. Be motivated but be patient with yourself.

    If you are passing or have passed through some trauma I hope you've found or are finding healing in this lockdown. I hope you are spending time with yourself and looking deep in you and pulling out that richness that lies dormant so that you will burst forth brightly.

    I hope you are spending time with your Creator and finding out about Him- the depth and wonders of His grace, the hope for you as a believer, and His promises for you that are yes and amen.

    I hope you realize that there is More to you than what has happened /is happening now and you are not defined by your mistakes or past. There is forgiveness and grace that empowers you.

    You are so bright and full of color!

  12. This pandemic has made me realise that life is just a mist that can fade away so quickly.

    All the struggle to accumulate and acquire all the good things of life can just be cut off with one final breath. Those who terrorize others with their money and power but fail to see that money and power are not everything.

    On a lighter note, I decided to give hubby and the kids a little treat, I made buns, egg rolls and chinchin a few days back.

    I asked hubby if they were okay.

    He praised me and said it was very nice, only for him to turn around and say "You are now an Aba certified caterer"

    I was so angry, I didn't even know when I started laughing...

  20. This lock down has made my husband more loving and caring. I'm even surprised. We communicate better now and he overlooks little things that made him angry before now. I'm surp6 though and he too is surprised and more happy. He even followed me to market, I was shocked. I'm so happy he communicates his feelings to me now compared to when I was left in the dark. Not like our routine changed,he still goes to work and I'm still at home,nothing changed.

    Could it be that the person doing him is tied down during this lockdown cos of restricted movement??..lol just kidding jare..bit I'm happy we are happy. I'm just scared he shouldn't snap back. I'm scared of opening up completely to him so as not to get disappointed. I've built
    a thick skin overtime, I'll keep watching and praying and working.

      Oh k, you want them to discuss the poor woman. In your presence so you can cuss her with whatever you hear. I pity you with the way you are going.
