What is love? I’ve spent years asking myself this. I don’t know what love is. I’m not going to claim to fathom it. As far as I know everybody has a different understanding of love. To some it’s friendship, devotion for others, some believe it’s a dream only to be adored from afar, and some […]
Welcome to day one of #Loveuary! February is here, the month of love, and I wanted to celebrate this wonderful emotion, but attempting to post about love each and every day. First of all, we need to define what love is… “Love is not merely an emotion felt due to romance, there are so many […]
They say that you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only option you have. Some people like to put a lot of emphasis on being strong. They like to be perceived as strong, they like their strength to be acknowledged by others, never realizing that they’re just pretending to be strong, pretending to be tough.
There is a big difference between being strong and being tough. Between having the courage to pursue one’s dreams and isolating oneself emotionally from the rest of the world. Being strong is not about building walls, it’s about building bridges. It’s about taking that small island that is one self and connecting it with others. It’s about having a purpose, about having principles and abiding them no matter what.

“Have you watched this new series called…What?! You haven’t, you should check it out and I promise you’ll thank me later…”
You’ll often hear such phrases being uttered by a lot of Kenyan movie fanatics. Kenyans love their movies and it’s a normal past time activity especially for students and young adults.
We haven’t quite reached that point where everyone has unlimited internet so we still rely on ‘DVD burning’ to get our movie/series dose.
And that’s why the movie shop business is quite a lucrative business to start in Kenya.
Ever wanted to start a movie business but you don’t have a clue about how to go about it? Here’s a breakdown of the major requirements:
Capital: Kshs 100,000-200,000
The capital may vary depending on the location. If you are setting up shop in a residential area then you might just need to pay a few month’s rent in…

Okay! So, you ever wondered why it’s been so tough on you? Why as a believer, it seems as though you’re battled against on every side? Why matters just keep arising every bit of the journey? Well, I’ve got a simple answer to that.
Just going to do a little bit of inspirational and motivational today. No crazy revelation, no deep scripture insight (although I think there still is), but definitely will give you that “hmmm” moment.
Okay! So, you ever wondered why it’s been so tough on you? Why as a believer, it seems as though you’re battled against on every side? Why matters just keep arising every bit of the journey? Well, I’ve got a simple answer to that. You’re ALIVE! And no, I don’t mean being alive because you’re breathing in oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide. I mean, you’re alive by reason of your life in Christ Jesus.
You have to understand that your being alive is the reason why you’re still facing all of these tribulations. Dead people don’t have issues, do they? They are just lying still-dead. No problems. But when there’s life, then it’s sure that you’ll still…

real reason people aren’t coming to church, and the real reason we are losing members is the fact that many of us just aren’t nearly as good a Christian as we claim to be.
A recent poll done by the good people at Pew Research Center indicate that church growth and attendance is declining. As much as we’d like to blame the next generation for the slumping numbers because they were never in church to begin with, it’s also people who were in church and now aren’t.
There’s a number of reasons why the church, especially the Christian Church is seeing a decline. For starters, the church, at least according to many today just isn’t relevant anymore. The church doesn’t teach the same values that society does and for many youngsters growing up in a secular world, it’s just not cool enough.
Another reason for the shrinking numbers is that church is what old people do, church means you have to get up on Sunday morning and get dressed, you have to go to a place where tattoos are frowned upon, nobody even knows…

For one who moves in uncertainty, this
flower, the petals of which
gently fade, as if reason
is found in the decline of beauty
and its comforts.
But all you touch remains
touched. If silence reveals the body
of music, what can be said of darkness? Words
appear motionless until they blossom, a
pattern seldom seen yet carried to us in
all manner of conveyance. Listen,
for there is no purer voice.
Let the earth speak.

“Patterns” first appeared here in March, 2015. I wrote it30-some years ago, placed it in a folder and promptly forgot it.
There are 9 shocking reasons that cause couples to breakup more than any others.
Everyone’s biggest fear is breakup. When you first fall in love, it is so overwhelming you can hardly imagine breakup with that fabulous person. They are your everything. Life is beautiful.
After the “honeymoon period” is over, cracks can begin to appear. As someone who has been married for almost 13 years and together for 18 years, I can say that a healthy relationship heals and repairs those cracks, and can become even stronger.
For others, those cracks are the beginning of the end.
There are 9 shocking reasons that cause couples to breakup more than any others. There’s a lot to learn from each and every one of them to prevent the same thing happening in your relationship.
1. It wasn’t love in the first place:
Mistaking lust for love. It’s a bit of a bummer, but it’s almost impossible to stay as madly lustful for someone as most…
