BEANS ON SUNDAY- Who Does That?

It has been a great day. 

At about 7.36am I finished removing the husks and stones normally associated with grains and legumes sold in public markets.
Beans from Foodnetwork.com

I gave it my all, to ensure I dissociate all the unwanteds from that volume I had measured out on my spanking white tray. I remembered as I selected the beans how that tray got to my kitchen in the first place. I used to be a chronic wedding guest until recently (story for another day) , so I smiled as I remembered the wedding event again and kept smiling as I completed my first duty to the beans.

I woke with a crave for it.
I made up my mind to cook it just like I love it.
I dished it and was enjoying my fill when a friend visited, and I dished his too.

It was fun eating it with soaked garri, sugar and powered peak milk. I had been a great and hospitable host today I thought until minutes after what was a sort of brunch (since it was past 11 then) I heard my friend say;
"Kai you actually committed an abomination ooo". Wide eyed I asked "what exactly have i done"?
And he blurted "Who even cooks porridge beans on a Sunday"?
With so much amusement, It hit me.


These are some of the ways, we keep to 'rules' without asking "who even made the rules"? "and why"? Who said it was compulsory to cook and eat Rice on Sunday and never beans?
We seem to dodge questioning things.
"What about these rules I grew up hearing fits my own preference and which should I ditch for something better"?

So many times, we forget the things that matter, and keep trying to play 'safe', play according to the rules even if it makes us unhappy.
We have millions of people who never find the essence between who they are, what they want from life and what others think they should want from life.
I also understand that so called "what society wants from us' can lead to bitter happenings and most times we also keep mute and go through the pain alone.

Just last week I discovered these group of people called URGENT ACTION FUND- AFRICA who provide quick funds for rescue in matters that endanger the lives or rights of women and girls. They help you stand up to the issues or occurrences that want to bend you. I mean they can provide these funding for even 5 hours from time of report. Which organisation looks out for humans like this, I have been thinking?. Amazing social work!.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
