15 for 15 challenge- The young and the confused.

Again I’m starting a blog post with Duru business.

Duru’s entry for the 15 for 15 challenge- Padre was about his dad. The post really touched me especially when he talked about his dad knowing when he’d done something wrong (the man must be psychic) and still correcting him in love. He went on to talk about the valuable lessons he’s learned from his dad and the wisdom his dad passes on to him on daily basis. And yes, there was the part about losing the house and his incredible faith then and now. In his words- “if we didn’t die when we lost the house, we can’t die again”. Continue reading →

The F word.

I don’t like labels, they are restrictive and never tell the full story. Trust me I know a lot about labels, six years in pharmacy school ensured that I made hundreds of them and answered countless questions about them. For this reason I have never referred to myself as a feminist or even thought of myself with the feminist tag, that all changed two days ago.

That was how I didn’t write again today

Most Nigerians would understand my title, it would make perfect sense. In plain English- I’m lamenting my failure to write today.

I’ve never been the most serious writer in the world, I’m not even the one millionth but I haven’t been writing as much as I should, as much as I could? The reason for this is a little game called Criminal case that frustrates and enthralls me.

I don’t like playing games because I can get addicted to them, especially when it’s not a racing or violent game. I used to play jewellery and bricks for hours at a point in my life. I’d been noticing a game on facebook, some of my friends were updating their stats and results via the game. It wasn’t until I saw my brother’s orange juice post that my interest in the game started and I downloaded it yesterday and it has occupied my mind, brain and body.

I have a backlog of writing but I don’t even care… I just wanna play my game and listen to Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab”. I’m still eating though and going out (went to see my godson today), all hope isn’t lost yet.

Ugo has responded to the versatile blogger challenge, I want to be like him when I grow up. He answered the questions in a very analytical and organised manner, not the haphazard way I did here and he made me feel proud of him and ashamed of myself. You can check out his post here. www.egwumbaugochukwu.blogspot.com/2015/07/versatile-blogger.html

His post made me realise that I forgot to ask my own question. Ugo my question is- How much do you think your blog is worth?

Now that I’ve written this post, I guess I can write the rest.. yes?

Modern hymns- Pour my love on you

Yesterday I talked about getting my lyrics mojo back… I think I have.  Yesterday evening, the song I’m putting up was laid in in my heart. That song and Psalm 63 were in impinged on my spirit and with them, I worshipped! I’m sharing it here today and I hope it blesses y’all as well.

Phillips, Craig & Dean – Pour My Love On You Lyrics
I don’t know how to say exactly how I feel
And I can’t begin to tell you what your love has meant
I’m lost for words
Is there a way to show the passion in my heart
Can I express how truly great I think you are
My dearest friend
Lord, this is my desire
To pour my love on You

[Chorus:]
Like oil upon your feet
Like wine for you to drink
Like water from my heart
I pour my love on you
If praise is like perfume
I’ll lavish mine on you
Till every drop is gone
I’ll pour my love on you

[Verse 2:]
Is there a way to show the passion in my heart
Can I express how truly great I think you are
My dearest friend
Lord, this is my desire
To pour my love on you

[Chorus:]
Like oil upon your feet
Like wine for you to drink
Like water from my heart
I pour my love on you
If praise is like perfume
I’ll lavish mine on you
Till every drop is gone
I’ll pour my love on you

[Chorus:]
Like oil upon your feet
Like wine for you to drink
Like water from my heart
I pour my love on you
If praise is like perfume
I’ll lavish mine on you
Till every drop is gone
Pour my love on you
Yeah

[Chorus:]
Like oil upon your feet
Like wine for you to drink
Like water from my heart
I pour my love on you
If praise is like perfume
I’ll lavish mine on you
Till every drop is gone

[Chorus:]
Like oil upon your feet
Like wine for you to drink
Like water from my heart
I pour my love on you
If praise is like perfume
I’ll lavish mine on you
Till every drop is gone
I’ll pour my love on you
Pour my love on you
