Sweeter than sweet

If there is a word,
That is sweeter than sweet,
Tell me;
That I may use it to describe you;
I call you sweet,
For lack of a better word;
You, definitely, are more than sweet;
You are sweeter than sweet;
Thank you for being
Such a sweet friend;
A blessing to have
As a friend;
A wonderful gift
To humanity.

Dear friend, Success Inspirer I do not think a bucket list is something you have to worry about.
From what I have read about you the Lord has blessed you very richly, with a lovely wife and a lovely family. You have a successful business as a journalist, blogger,writer, been in Cameroon broadcasting for over 32 years. I would say you’re one of the few people in this whole, wide, world that actually has his ducks in a nice little row.
I do not think your life became this way from a lightening strike, out of luck or circumstances. From watching you, you must the started at a very young age, shaping and planning your future and holding it all together with a life of faith in our Creator.
I want to commend you for sharing the good news and sharing your ideas with people all over this world. You lifted Thia last week when she felt alone. I am glad to call you a friend and hope you continue to visit my blog site and give me encouragement also.
Have a very successful 2016, best wishes, the Lord’s blessing on you and yours.
Thank you.


No computer addict

If someone tells you I am
To the computer addicted;
That I cannot make a day
Without a computer,
They are wrong;
Dead wrong;
I love the computer;
That is true.
I spend much time on the web;
And write and publish,
All the times;
But I am no addict.
Without the computer,
Life continues;
Though hard,
It will not come to an end.

Your life without a computer: what does it look like?


Life without a computer

Life without a computer!
It’s hard to imagine;
Where will I begin?
It sure will be hard;
How will I publish on my blog?
And read what others post?
How will I answer comments?
And comment on my part?
Life without a computer
Will be hard for me.
And the Solidarity Support challenge
Without a computer!
I cannot support you
And you cannot support me on the net.
A day without a computer
Will be a bad day for me.

Gay issues

Gay issues;
Worrisome issues to many a soul;
Tell us where you stand
On gay issues.
Should we talk about them
Or leave them alone?
Should we accept them
Or reject them?
Should we condemn them
Or praise them?
These are the worries of gay issues.
Tell us where you stand
On gay issues;
That we may know where you stand;
We want the best
For everyone;

I have a loving friend;
Who sent me words
Of encouragement today;
They touched my heart;
And made my day;
If there’s anything you can do,
To encourage another,
Don’t hesitate.
That can mean a world of a difference
In another’s life;

The lemons on your path

The wise do make lemonades
Out of their lemons;
Throughout history,
we have seen this happen;
The good God makes lemonades for people
Out of their lemons;
He did that for Joseph
When is brothers sold him
Into slavery;
And he ran into problems
With his Masters wife.
A bad situation became a blessing;
A bad case
Is not the end of life;
Always be wise
To make it
A stepping-stone to
Something great.
That is why God puts lemons
On your way.

Not Lemonade
When life gives you lemons… make something else. Tell us about a time you used an object or resolved a tricky situation in an unorthodox way.
