Little clusters

I have been feeling out of sorts of late, not illness, not depression, just a bit detached from everything. I have no reason to feel this way, things are going well in my life, but there is just this ...thing I can't actually place my hands on. I know it's there, at the back of my mind, but I have decided to leave it there, at the back. I won't give myself headache for something I can't control. Why should I worry? My God is there to deal with it anyway!

Its amazing how far a kind word, thought, deed or prayer will go. In this my "undefined" state, I suddenly saw a notification on my phone, it was a direct message on twitter by @gbemisoke, and she said a word of prayer for me. I can't express how I felt, but it was a word in season. I almost cried when I saw it, and I felt like in the whole universe, God had put a spot light on me.

At the same time, I saw that a friend had changed her DP to my picture and her PM was "Friends are an important part of 1's life: glad I've got my ladies". And I knew that God was just telling me that He had my back no matter what. I know it may sound odd to some of you, but I guess when God relates with each one of us, its weired to the other person, somehow.

I learned more lessons today- 
  • When you have  a nudge to do or say something (nice) to someone, don't hesitate for one second. 
  • Appreciate your friends. It goes a long way.
I remember my mom always told me that whenever I suddenly thought of someone, I should say a prayer and then communicate with the person. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. ( sometimes I actually feel like I am disturbing some people when I keep in touch. Is it just me?). 

There's this song by Donnie McClurkin (feat. Cece, Yolanda and Mary Mary) that also helped me realize that people should smell flowers when they are alive.

Now I know I'll keep this up, because I just got blessed.

  10. You mum gave you a very wise word.Whenever you think of someone,a prayer and communication are very good things you could do,it's prolly what they need at that point in time.

  12. True. Wish I could always tell my friends how much they mean.

    Once I missed the chance to follow "mama's advice". The next time I saw him was in an obituary!
