Ola family! It’s been a minute. A lot of minutes. Apologies for the abrupt sabbatical, but am back, officially. There is so much in store for the readers in this New Year; blog posts, book and album reviews, series and features to say the least. But, before we all get used to writing the 7… Continue reading BEGINNINGS AND PROGRESS
In a circle of true Friends each man is simply what he is: stands for nothing but himself. No one cares two pence about anyone else’s family, profession, class, income, race, or previous history. Of course you will get to know about most of these in the end. But casually. They will come out bit… Continue reading KINGLINESS OF FRIENDSHIP
The weight of wickedness is heavy as lead trying to catch its descent is like stopping a falling rock in a spider’s web. Its thin silk thread begins to snap and all that is left is the residue that sticks between the cracks. It all ends with a slip into a bottomless pit, grips the… Continue reading THE GUILT-STRICKEN CHRISTIAN.
Jesus, friend of sinners open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers. Let our hearts be led by mercy. Help us reach with open hearts and open doors.

Not that we have been freed by Christ to love ourselves, but that we have been freed from self-obsession. Not that the cross frees us for the ego trip but that the cross frees us from the ego trip-Dennis Voskuil. It’s a tranquil evening, one of those days where even creation seems and feels …calm.… Continue reading ACCORDING TO GOD. A SECOND HELPING OF HELLO MY NAME IS.
The child who is patted on the back for doing a lesson well, the woman whose beauty is praised by her lover, the saved soul to whom Christ says, “well done”, is pleased and ought to be.
