  • Being in the Way

    Being in the Way

    More importantly, being in the way is figurative of honoring God with our lives, through our thoughts, words, and actions. If we disobey or dishonor God in the areas we know, it is not likely that He will direct us or show us new things that we desire to know.

  • Winter no be your mate

    Winter no be your mate

    It finally snowed in Edmonton on the first day of November, starting in the evening and showering all through the following day. It was beautiful to watch. Everywhere looked sparkling white wherever you turned, and the temperatures were β€œnice” (just a couple of degrees below zero) for a day or two. I had been told […]

  • The Lady on the Train

    The Lady on the Train

    “In between glancing at her and shutting my eyes to take in the music I was listening to, I looked around at the rest of us, unemotional and blank as always.”

  • Bathing Baby Boys (BBB)

    Bathing Baby Boys (BBB)

    These days, I am usually the one who bathes our boys. I feel like my wife has “stylishly” allocated that responsibility to me, and I am determined to fight for my rights…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. This routine should ordinarily be fun except that I’m the undesired one when it comes to bathing and dressing them up. The boys […]

  • Embracing Change

    Embracing Change

    A lot had changed while I was not watching, and it is only in retrospect that I realize how much. More importantly, it has taken humility to acknowledge how the changes around me have impacted me, and how I need to be poised going into the future.

  • Moving Forward

    Moving Forward

    2022 has been a year of great changes for me, and July has been a climax to those changes. I am still in transition, and hopefully, as I settle down into a new routine, I can find more time to tell my stories and explore the thought processes that have underlined the big decisions I […]

  • A Solid Foundation

    A Solid Foundation

    His Word provides a solid foundation that makes my life relatively stable regardless of the turbulences I experience. While my emotions can be on a rollercoaster from one day to another and my thoughts can vacillate from one moment to the next, the outcome of my life has been fairly stable and consistent with God’s promises for my life.

  • Meditation: Cast your Burden

    Meditation: Cast your Burden

    Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved (ESV) – Psalm 55:22 If I cast my burden on the Lord, sharing my thoughts, concerns, and worries with Him rather than bearing them alone, He will sustain me. The cause for concern may not […]

    Day 27: Ibukunoluwa #28DayChallenge

    Today’s post is for my second son, Samuel Ibukunoluwa. Almost two years ago, I wrote and posted a poem for my first son, Lemuel Ayomide, who was a little over a year old at the time. You can read it here. Now I have written one for Samuel who turns 1 in a few days […]
