With or Without!

Some have food but cannot eat
Some can eat but have no food
We have food and we can eat
Glory be to thee oh Lord

This is a song we sang back in primary school at lunch time. Just a form of prayer said before having our lunch.
As a kid I understood the song. knowing that there are people who had food and those who did not have even in my class.
This is a reality of life. Some have food but cannot eat. Its not that they don't to but they just can't.
This could be by virtue of their disposition, mood, health condition, worries,
The fact is that the food is there but it can't be eaten. how painful. I have seen people who are on hospital beds and would love to eat but its just not possible they are being fed with fluids and pipes.
On the other hand, those who have the ability to eat, appetite and are hungry for food just don't have any food to eat. Thats an Irony of life.
And there are people who have food to eat and can eat it.
They do so without taking thought of the fact that there people living with the above conditions.
Above all whether there is food or not. Thank God for the gift of life, 'cos only the living can eat.

On a lighter note, the song has been rewritten by me

Some have Blog but they cannot post
Some can post but have no Blog
We have Blog and we can post
Glory be to thee oh Lord

A Life That Counts.

It has been some 12 days since my last post though its not that I have been away from Blogville but I have just not been able to get my fingers to type this post. lol.

I have not being able to post something on this blog since my birthday though I have being reflecting on one scripture of the bible that people usually make reference to for birthdays it says:

So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.

People only number their days on their birthdays forgetting the fact that
everyday our life actually counts.
Numbering your days would make you apply
your heart to wisdom.
Numbering does not mean counting or the arithmetic sum
of the days you have lived since birth it only a way of accounting for the life
that you live.
Now the question is how do I apply my heart to wisdom?

Applying wisdom gives you the understanding that as humans no matter how long we live, life is short so any opportunity we have to make our life count should be maximised.

I would rather have it said 'he lived usefully' than 'he died rich.' - Benjamin Franklin

Instead of seeing the world in terms of how much money he could make, Franklin saw the world in terms of how many people he could help. To Benjamin Franklin, being useful was his own reward.

Living a life that counts entails giving, loving, helping, serving, encouraging, adding value to others and impact the lives of other people positively.

My life would not just count in term of wealth or degrees.

So, is your life counting? Make you it count!

On a lighter mood.

Lest I forget thanks for all the love, phonecalls, sms, wallpost on Facebook and the gifts I did not get. lol

I hope you are doing great. ciao
