People's opinions about our lives have their place, but we can not blame them for their failure to see our own great potential. After all, wisdom for all of us is limited. Out true honor is formed when we follow our heart in spite of people's opinions when there is conflict.
So what are you? peace maker, discourager, motivator or someone who does not see anything good in your friends. Life is funny. The more we learn to appreciate and celebrate others people's success and shine, the more other people will come and celebrate with us when our own moment of glory comes along.

I thought growing up meant losing interest in birthday celebrations, i ve just realised i have been wrong. My mind is still filled with flashbacks form the just ended weekend of March 16th. Yes it was my birthday, on a friday, the acclaimed 'father's day'. Well let me begin by stating that i ve never been told that i am loved as much as i have been this year's birthday. Come on now, we all love some little attention. i think i got so much more than i deserve. O well, forgetting that three days before my birthday i had been sick, let me say i could rewind the day over and over again. It sacked going to school on my birthday, but hey sometimes a woman just needs to do what needs to be done. I must say, it ddin't entirely mess my day. It was actually fun getting more love and well wishes from friends around campus.
The clock ticked 7:30pm and i was no where near ready for my 8;00pm dinner. This is one day i   needed three hours of dress and make up. Ofcourse for all the obvious reasons. I was the queen of the night and i had to look it. By 8:15pm, i entered into an amazing setting. The place, the atmosphere was just too beautiful. Friends and family all looked amazing. It wa a time no one  thought about her/his issues at home. We all just wanted to have fun and fun and more fun.The man behind the mic and drums couldn't have done any better to make my night than what he did. He was teriffic..and when  he played my request; 'Lady soul', it was fire...and o yes i could do with a little dance with somebody who loved/loves me... thank you God for adding another year into my life....

I just feel like encouraging my fellow brothers and sisters walking in the Christian life on finishing strong. What is it that as Christians finishing strong calls us to do? We must commit to finishing strong in Christian life. When God chooses us or calls us to a certain task we must always commit to finishing strong. God calls His people to different tasks such as; to preach, to minister, to sing, to care for somebody, to work in a particular organization e.t.c. However let us be aware that there is no mission without facing challenges. We must be prepared that along the journey to accomplish God’s set mission, trials of all sorts will come our way. This is the time that we can then show off our Christian value of faith. Deuteronomy 31:8 says “The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will lead you; He will never leave you nor forsake you”. Therefore when challenges come our way let us not despair or drop our mission. Let us commit to finishing strong. God Himself assures us that as long as we trust and obey Him, He will stay close to us.  Sometimes when circumstances are so hard and we have no idea or  a plan to fix them, trusting God becomes so difficult. But God throughout history has done things to show us that when we fully commit to trusting Him, He will come through for us. In 2 Chronicles 12, we are told the king of Egypt  attacks Judah, the leaders prayed to God and He came through for them.

Power of Social Network...

A South African woman was saved from two armed robbers who had physically assaulted and threatened to rape her, after updating her Facebook status.
According to The Beeld newspaper, the attackers tied up the woman in her bedroom together with her 10-year-old son. They also stole her cellphone and told her that they would kill her husband when he came home.
The woman then managed to untie herself and her son, before hiding in her wardrobe with her laptop.
From there, she sent out two updates, saying “Please help! We have an armed robbery, they’re waiting for Hennie [her husband] at the gate, please phone him, don’t let him come inside” and Help! Call Hennie. We’ve managed to untie ourselves. They said they would come back to rape me. Armed.”
According to the newspaper, one of her friends saw her message and called for help immediately.
Police and security guards reportedly arrived on the scene within minutes, but the attackers had fled.
Facebook is becoming an increasingly valuable tool in tracking down criminals. Police in the German state of Lower Saxony, for instance, will soon begin using Facebook to help locate missing persons and hunt down suspected criminals.

February 12th 2012, what a day to remember when Zambia beat the star-studded Ivory coast in the African Cup of Nations (AfCON) finals in Libreville, Gabon. I remember watching the game with my Zambian friends. The atmosphere was so intense, not only because it was a dream come true for the Chipolopolo boys from Zambia to be in the finals but also that the boys put up a splendid performance. From the moment the whistle blew to start the game it was evident Zambia had come to accomplish one mission. To win and honour the souls of the former Zambian team players who died in a plane crash in 1993 in the same country of Gabon. The former players met their fate on the way to the World Cup qualifier tournament.

Luck was indeed on the Zambian boys as through the game, we watched the Ivorian star Didier Drogba miss a penalty 10 minutes before the final whistle. It was a moment that fuelled further the energy levels of my Zambian friends. They chanted vernacular songs throughout the game. One song that got my attention is the one that literally translated that the Chipolopolos , which means bullets( Zambian team) will fire and kill the elephants(Ivory coast team). The Ivorian captain who is also Chelsea striker and African footballer of the year 2006 and 2009 could have done better if only he knew his penalty would have claimed his team a win as there was no goal conceded in the full time played. The game ended up in penalty shoot-outs. Now this was the time I really witnessed my friends going through an emotional roller coaster. It was one dramatic penalty shoot-outs I haven’t watched in years since the UEFA champions’ league finals between Manchester United and Chelsea in 2008.

As the penalty shoot-out progressed to penalty number 8, all it needed was for one team to miss and grant opportunity to the other to grab the trophy. I saw my Zambian friends go through a swing of emotions, from celebrating to nervousness. Thanks to one Zambian man Stophira Sunza who managed to score the last needed penalty. Sunza’s kick into the net declared Zambia’s redemption win and ensured that every able Zambian was shouting on top of his lungs and jumping up and down in celebrations. It all ended 8-7, Zambia had done it. Zambia had beaten Ivory Coast. One chipolopolo(bullet) dropped dead the elephants.
