An invitation

It was a wonderful holiday. I think the kids had the best time visiting their friends and bonding with their cousins. Kids often get the best deal when it comes to relaxing and resting. The school calendar just works for them - work hard 3 months, take a break for about a month, and then back to school. Most teachers are nice enough to send pupils home at the end of the term without homework; others are not so kind. Sometimes, you just wish...

My Whole Life by Anietie Bature

On March 31, 2017, my new single ‘My Whole Life’ was released. When asked to say something about this song,  I recalled that I had prayed the words of this song for years and on this particular morning in January 2016 the words came together into a beautiful melody and we’ve been singing it since. I love it, my hubby loves it, the kids love it, everybody loves it.

I enjoyed working on this song with iChek (@IykeChekwa) who produced it, and we had superb backing vocals by Lauretta Cookey (@lauryee143), Emem Alfred (@alfredemem), and Olanrewaju Awosika. These guys are power houses on their own. It was indeed an honor to have them lend their voices to this work.

The expertise of our ever so skillful instrumentalists came to bear as well with iChek on the keyboard, Gideon Itimi (@Ministerwow) on the bass guitar, David Ubani (@davemark9) on the lead guitar, and John Osadolo on drums. Saviour Amos (@saviour_amos) and Edward Sunday were the audio engineers for this project; Edward also mixed and mastered this song. Fantastic! Team work is good work; especially when each member of the team can hold their own and is happy to contribute to the overall success of that team.

Now, from me, the song writer… here are the lyrics to this beautiful song:

You have a plan for my life oh God
You’re watching over Your Word to bring it to pass
Your eyes are upon me
You go before me You’re leading me
I totally surrender
Totally surrender to You

My Whole Life oh God I give to You
My Whole Life oh God
My Whole Life oh God I give to You
My Whole Life oh God

Have Your way
Have Your way
Have Your way
Have Your way

Have Faith – Think Big

Everything is possible for one who believes. Anything is possible if a person believes. Everything is possible to the one who believes. As far as possibilities go, everything is possible for the person who believes. Yes. I would have assumed that Jesus didn't quite mean everything or anything, but when I think of one of His followers saying 'I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength', I have to face it; it must be that He meant exactly what He said. Wow! That's something to think about. I've found that during the transition from one year to the next, we are often in a relatively excited state and we dream big dreams, think big, make...

Ask How

Now that we’re off to a Smart Start, a concept comes to mind that I came across in ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’, a book by Robert Kiyosaki in which he said that compared to rich people, poor people respond in a different manner when faced with a need. He observed that the poor are quick to say ‘I can’t afford it’ - a statement in which there’s no hope or possibility of a positive outcome, while rich people often say ‘how can I afford it?’ - a question that opens them up to endless possibilities. The outcome of these two responses are worlds apart - the poor often do not get what...

Smart Start

Back in Primary School, I got excited every time a new notebook was given to me. There's something about the way it smelled that made me feel I had another opportunity to do better, write better, make my work neater and more orderly, and most importantly, impress my teachers when the time came by reproducing everything they had taught me. New things really inspire me. How about newly printed currency? When I have some of such, I spread them between my fingers like a Chinese dancing fan and place them softly against my nose, then I close my eyes, breathe in, and dream of having so much money so I can do more...

Merry Christmas 

It's so much fun spending Christmas with family; even better when you merge families. That's exactly what we did. My entire immediate family travelled over streams, rivers and forests to be with my Sister and her family. The kids are thrilled. Anna said, 'this is the first Christmas we're spending with Pippa'. She even wanted both families to go to Church together so she wouldn't be away from her cousin, whom she also calls sister or sister-cousin, for even a second. My sister, Aunty Patty, gave me one important assignment - the Christmas turkey. I've done this before so after a quick refresher on YouTube, I was good to go. One new trick I...
