For Your Eyes Only

Let me start by saying a formal Happy New Year to you all. I feel so blessed to be in this great year full of promises. A greater part of my blessings last year came from learning from you in ways you may not imagine.

I will be away for a while (like I've already been), reorganizing my spiritual and personal life.

So I leave this picture with you to ponder on for a minute. What ever can you deduce from it?


And then, I leave these pictures with you...from the eyes of children...

Remain blessed, Beloved.

StandTall-The Activist said...

Will miss you when you are gone but I know your return will justify the time out.

I used to have thinking of Jane before about God just keeping the people he has made and not let them die (lol)

NigerianDramaQueen said...

Woman!! Happy New Year!!! It feels like forever since I've been on your blog...

From the first picture, I guess I could deduce that we will be met with challenges on the path to our destiny. All those points of reflextion reminded me of intro to technology which I hated in secondary school!lol

Those letters were sooo cute btw! Good luck on your personal/spiritual retreat. I hope you come back with much inspiration for us!!

Severus Snape said...

Wow....
Nice post....
Hapi-nu-yr, Rita...

Fanny said...

I believe your time out will be rewarding... you are blessed!

ShonaVixen said...

awwww how sweet!!!

OluwaDee said...

Happy new year dear!
Loved the letters written by the kids.

Following distrations takes us through a longer path in getting to our destination.
We all have points in which we reflect on the choices we have made & the way we live.
At this point we may choose to change our ways, or keep following the wrong path.

Beulah! said...

Children are pure delights!....Nice Post.

fantasy queen said...

Geebee said...

The children's letters are just CUTE. Imagine what these kids think and you'll find yourself smiling eternally. They're just so adorable. Sometimes i wonder how it'd have been if we all remain children. I love the pointer too. We don't necessarily have to do too much to get God's promises and will. If only we could all just try . . . hard as it seems.

Jarrai said...

Hey! What's up with you? I’m your biggest fan. I would have left you a fancy comment with high grammar and all that, but I'm dyslexic. I can't read, I can’t write, but I’ve a special talent. I can write my "R's" backwards. I’m using MindReader 8.0 to write you this comment. It’s a new software. Not a lot of people know about it. It reads the mind and types what I’m thinking. My psychologist said my dyslexia is as a direct result of my D.N.A. (National Dyslexic Association). I don't know what that means and I'm not a member of any organisation. Maybe my psychologist lied to me, just like everyone else. Didja hear about the dyslexic devil worshipper? He ended up selling his soul to Santa Claus. Stupid. When I'm ready to sell my soul or virginity, I’ll sell it on eBay. I heard you could make a lot of money selling stuffs on eBay. Back to my original story about the dyslexic devil worshipper with OCD and Tourette's syndrome. He died last Christmas. He drank himself to death. What a waste. He died waiting for paramedics to take him to the doc. He kept dialling 69-69-69 on his mobile phone while yelling "O hell! O hell! O hell!". He could not work up enough courage to dial 999. I bet he’s in hell right now. With current cost of energy, at least he doesn’t have to spend money on heating during winter. Oh well, I must run now. Got to go to the MTA cash machine. I'm on Atkins' diet plan. I avoid crabs. I still can't lose any weight even though I've stopped eating crabs. I hope someone put a smile on your face today. See you around.
