The Creator will remove anything from your life that causes you to love more than you love Him
just to show you that He's the only sincere form of love.
Evening is the time for some joy,
It is the time for some peace and coy,
The evenings are best time to rejoice,
With lots and lots of voice,
Have a lovely evening this day,
Make the most of this time and day,
With your hands in a prayer position, raise your hands to your forehead and say,
“I ask for the wisdom, grace and courage for my MIND to be filled with kind thoughts for self and all others.”
With your hands still in a prayer position, move your hands to your lips and say,
“I ask for the wisdom, grace and courage for my SOUL to be filled with kind words for self and all others.”
Now open your hands and place them around your heart and say,
“I ask for the wisdom, grace and courage for my BODY to be filled with kind feelings for self and all others.”
Return your hands to a prayer position and place them on your chest and say,
“I ask for the wisdom, grace and courage to bring forth my SPIRIT of Being, to allow for kind thoughts, words and deeds in all that I am.”
When I am meditating on my own, I then bow out in silence and thank myself for connecting with love. When I am meditating with someone, I bow with them and express these words.
“The student and teacher of life in me, bows to the student and teacher of life in you. Amen.

Teach us, Lord, how to be better wives, loving wives, respectful wives, and faithful wives AMEN!
My life is beautiful because of you my love, you entered my life as a candle-light and you showed me the true meaning of love not with your words but with your care, I know your shy nature doesn't let you open up to me but your eyes speak out the love you have for me.
"I love you so much dear"
I am truly blessed to have you as a part of my life and i can't wait for the day when we start a new life when i say "I love you" i mean every word.
My heart for you will never break.
My smile for you will never fade.
My love for you will never end.
I love you
I hope you know how much our relationship means to me.
Getting to know you over these few months has changed my life,
I am happier than I have ever been I owe that joy to you,
my heart was empty before i met you but now my life is full of meaning and purpose because of your presence,
I can now see my future because you are the light that guides me to my steps,
I want to take this chance to say thanks for all that you have done for me and "l love you so much"
Pain doesn't just show up in our lives for no reason.
It's a sign that something in our lives needs to change.
Life is never going to be perfect and you need to realize that.
People you thought you knew are going to turn into strangers.
The one you thought you loved may be the person you hate the most someday.
You’re going to be happy and you’re going to fall.
You need to know life isn’t perfect and that’s what makes it best of all.
So you need to start looking at the beauty of small moments.
Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things.
When your heart is clean, you won't assume everyone else's heart is dirty.
When you're truthful, you won't assume everyone else to be a liar.
What you see in everything around you is only a reflection of yourself.
May the Creator purify our hearts, and use us to purify that which is around us. Ameen
I promise you that all you are experiencing, all the pain, the trials, the long patches of deprivation,
and desperation, are only carving you and preparing you for your destiny.
Your role. This long night will not last forever.
And I swear to you it has a purpose. Stay close to the earth, stay humble and dependent on the Creator,
and you will survive.
Then you will rise, fully carved and prepared for what the Creator has saved for you.
UNDERSTANDING THE FACTORS THAT MAKE CHILDREN BRILLIANT
This is a long article but you can't raise smart kids if you won't read so let's go lovely parents
Every parent I have met wants a brilliant child and I have also met some that would get enraged if a child comes back with a subpar report card and even go as far as beating a child that isn't doing fantastic in class.
I always wonder why they do that because the truth is there are a lot of factors that make a child brilliant and very few of them depends on the child.
In fact I can say the only factor that depends on the child is concentration and seriousness.
Every other thing including the ability to think, assimilate, read, memorize, prepare and a host of others fall under the purview of the parents whether consciously or unconsciously.
WITH THAT SAID WE WILL LOOK AT THE LONG HELD NATURE VERSUS NURTURE DEBATE.
The Nature debate says a child that has the genes of parents who were average students will most likely be an average student.
The Nature debate backed by in fact a lot of scientific debate says that a child picks a huge chunk of his brain power from the mother.
Another thing a child picks from the parents is the memory power.
So if you were forgetful as a child, there is a big probability that your child would be due a gene scientists refer to as the brain-derived neurotrophic factor.
The gene comes in two forms and if parents pass the weak version of this cell to their child the child might be forgetful and read only to forget quickly.
Thankfully there is the nurture part of the argument that says a child’s brilliance can still shine forth despite what nature bestowed the child if the parents use some special skills to raise the child.
These skills have been used repeatedly in developed countries and are open for parents that are willing to learn and put the knowledge to practice.
These skills aren’t just gimmicks that your child can use in school because let’s face it; school is just a tiny part of the huge part to success.
You will learn lessons here that your child will need for a lot of other spheres of life.
These skills are what I will be teaching you in this group, here are a few of them broken down into simple concepts.
ENCOURAGE AN EARLY THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE
Steve Jobs step dad taught him about electronics when he was a toddler, Oprah Winfrey’s grandmother taught her how to read when she was three.
Tiger Woods was playing golf when he was two and this early introduction to knowledge is what I rarely see in Nigeria.
When a child is a toddler here he is either in front of a TV all day which isn’t great for his brain’s development or sleeping all day.
Here is the advantage some successful people have; they were raised to start incorporating information pertinent to their lives early so they grew up loving knowledge and that has helped them a great deal.
The truth is a child you read story books with as a toddler will love to read more as a grown up than a child that watched African Magic all day as a child.
There is a phase in a child’s life that is characterized by a lot of questions and that phase is a very important part of your child’s life.
Your child’s brain is at the opinion phase where it is forming opinion about a lot of things it can’t explain.
It is also a time when your child’s mind is stretching and sadly a time some parents kill their child’s mind.
You see parent frustrated by the questions a child asks explode and say don’t disturb me!
When you do that you just killed the flame of curiosity that leads to brilliance and Albert Einstein once said ‘’Never lose a holy curiosity’’
Answer their questions no matter how much and use the opportunity to give them brain twisters.
For instance a child might say Daddy or Mummy why don’t you go to my school?
You might answer and say I am too old for your school but do you know there is a type of school I can still go to? Think of the answer and tell me later.
You are forcing your child to think and that believe me is the greatest skill on earth, the ability to think!
Thinking is the currency of the brilliant and successful and that is why Henry Ford said 'Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it.
Many times we just assume talking is that thing we do to communicate.
It is so much than that; it is a tool to transfer brilliance especially to little children.
The next time you are with a little child, tell the child that is the television it is spelt T E L E V I S I ON and that is the car it is spelt CAR.
Tell the child those are four books 2+2 is four and 2x2 is four.
Do this repeatedly and I promise you your child is on his way to brilliance
NEVER MAKE LEARNING SEEM LIKE A CHORE
The reason many children hate reading is because they have come to see it like it is work.
There are games like Scrabble, Ludo, Whot and Monopoly that are good for learning early Math and English that you should play with your kids.
These will put it in their minds that learning is fun and they will grow to see the importance.
A sleep deprived child will never be brilliant because his or her brain isn’t getting enough rest.
This will lead to weak memory and short attention span which equals scoring zero in class.
HERE IS THE SLEEP CHART SCIENCE AGREES WITH
Newborn to 3 months old 14 - 17 hrs
4 to 11 months old 12 - 15 hrs
1 to 2 years old 11 - 14 hrs
3 to 5 years old 10 - 13 hrs
6 to 13 years old 9 - 11 hrs.
The Creator wil make our children a reference point of success and put smile on their faces.They will be celebrated. Amen
They will work without stress, they will not lack of anything, they will function in God's grace.Their steps shall be ordered by Almighty God. No evil shall come near them by the grace of God. (Ameen).
Many youth today state how they are more educated than their parents.
My response to this is as follows: "If you can see further than your parents today;
its only because you are standing on their shoulders! Don't belittle those responsible for your success!
Be indebted to them!
That will also be possible for your children and you will encounter with this
but if you be thankful for your parents then expect that thankfulness from yours too.
