International Woman’s Day

I’ve inherited a heart so warm it cures the heaviest tears,
Floods of laughter that brighten the dampest spirit,
A smile so wide i forget yesterdays night sky

Oh when i look at you, i see a reflection of these eyes,
A gap into; the earth stays still; as i pass through
the middle of calamity. It used to be fun when life passed over me
Now we are level in sight and stand shoulder to shoulder but i will not move
I will use the strength of my mothers, mothers before my mother
Force my way to freedom; to love, to hold, to cherish and be bold

i heard i was phenomenal and held it close to my heart
Now i will start to be a woman
Weave my basket full of wisdom and carry my jewels like my mothers mother and before her mother

Happy International Womans Day

the story of love…in the unknown

I shouldn’t but I do,
think of the first time we met, why we met and how oblivious we were,
young lovers exploring the surface of what cannot be explained or contained,
trapped in the circle of admiration, circulation, reverberation of our hearts,
a song we shared, a dance no one cared, a trickle of a teenage love affair…gone
at the peak of the morning sun,
tomorrow might not come to us, we might have to travel the stars,
But I wish tomorrow we could begin again, say one more time how simple it was…just knowing you…to be you….to become us

I couldn’t help but share this with the world after seeing this passage today from “Woman thou art loosed” edition KJV Bible by T.D Jakes, it’s so encouraging to anyone who may feel lost in themselves for a moment or for a long time. Based on Colossians 1:9-11….

The greater part of your attractiveness — the part that draws or attracts other people to you – is on the inside, not on your flesh. Our society spends billions of dollars a year to convince you to buy hundreds, even thousands of dollars worth of clothes and make-up in order to fix  up something that doesn’t really matter all that much. We spend countless hours at beauty salons and spas and malls in order to buy, acquire, or create the things we think will draw other people to us, but which actually have very little drawing power. What you create or design on the outside of yourself may  turn a head or two, but it is powerless to turn a mind or a heart.

You are bombarded daily with messages that tell you that if you will only go to the right weight-loss centre and get down to the right size, dye your hair the right shade, go to the right spa, use the right toothpaste, put on the right make-up, wear the right outfit at the right time, and be seen in the right places with the right people, then you will most certainly be able to attract the right man and have the right children and  live in the right neighbourhood and enjoy the right kind of life!

When we do this and nothing “right” happens for us, we are puzzled. We sit back and ask, “What went wrong?” This is what went wrong: We became the merchandise for those who tried to sell us the merchandise.

We’ve been had! The average woman, Christians included will spend thousands of dollars this year on hats and hair colour, earrings and evening dresses. Sadly, they will make no real investment to build or support those inner qualities that truly attract others to us and to Jesus Christ our Saviour. If you are only concerned with what you look like, you are going to be very shallow, superficial person. People are going to find that once they have quite playing with you, the box you came in was beautifully wrapped, but empty.

Go back to the source of your attractiveness—the Holy Spirit of God. He is the one who woos and wins the heart. When you are His woman, He will draw you to the right people for the right purposes at just the right time

All around me I see images and adverts showing me, friends and family telling me what I should look like when what I should look like makes me feel even more self conscious. To that I say “I am fearfully and wonderfully made” and “my worth is far above rubies”. A woman’s self-worth is impossible to crack if she knows how much of value she is when God is her creator. Enjoy your day people people and share the love.

Do you love me now…..

I leave you with this beautiful song by Nneka which seems to bring about moments of sadness, confusion, hurt, doubt and moments of compromise. The world is full of deceit and devious minds that may act innocent but it’s only later on that you find out the extent of the damage. Somebody once told me to put all my trust in God and not in man because with man, you surely will be disappointed….after all we are lead by our emotions. I find that with God, I don’t even have to ask or do anything for Him to love me, He just does. That is what He is….Love. I hope you find that and believe that for yourself too.

Romancipatience……

My first official post on relationships…..here goes.

Romancipatience…as you can guess it’s about romance and patience. For too long I’ve heard my girl-friends say that they want to be in a relationship, that they are sick of being single, why doesn’t anybody want me?!? and so the story goes. On the contrary my guy- friends are open to talking about women and their views on relationships but aren’t willing to make the big “commitment”…yes the guys take their time whilst the girls are in a hurry and none are willing to compromise….(that one will have a post of its own soon).

Before the key is turned…

How long are you supposed to leave it until you trust someone enough that you start revealing your true self to them? How do you know that this person won’t hurt you or use what you have told them against you? How do you know that this person will not abandon you when you need them most?

To be honest…..I don’t know Continue reading “Before the key is turned…”
