    I’m Running

    Looking through November 3rd, 2017 to November 3rd, 2018, I can tell you that a lot did happen in that span of a year. There were lots of lessons learnt, some kept and others discarded and one of the lessons I had to learn was understanding that, sometimes distractions look like pressure and sometimes, when the pressure becomes too much, you unconsciously find yourself questioning and vetting your values, precepts, modus operandi and the likes.

    Home and Away!!!!!

    Yipeee! Guess who’s back? Me!!!!!!! It’s a month and some  weeks since I took a self-administered sabbatical leave from the blog but really all things work together for the good of those that trust Him. . . A lot of factors were against me, I had to address and map out strategies on some of my abandoned projects and God was also putting a lot of things to try on my mind and yeap, ama begin to show them when I’m done clearing the needful.
