Hi there! I think its still appropriate to wish you Happy New Year! (seeing as this is my first post this year). Safe to say I’ve been on a vacation of some sort. I’ve found new interest i’m seriously in love with – BEATBOXING, just in case a spot opens up in pentatonix or some other cool acapella group ( like the ones in the movie Pitch Perfect ). Oh…I see you tempting me to show my skills. Should ah? Should ah? Naah.. I’ll drop a beat some other time.
Ok, really, school has been taking up a lot of my time and I haven’t been able to do as much writing as I would love to. Nonetheless, i’ve been reading & researching on how to write better and i’ve been developing the series “The XX files”. I’ve also written two short stories on xtremgospel.com.
‘Mr somebody‘- inspired by a blind man I came in contact with last year and ‘A different Valentine‘- A story about how the popularly celebrated day of love took a different turn for a secondary school (high school) student.
You know, you really should check out the rest of the site for high quality gospel music/ music video downloads, uplifting articles, news on the international & local entertainment scenes, interviews with various gospel artistes and a load of other great stuff. You can thank me later. (Peter, You must pay me for this endorsement o! 😉 )
By the way have you read all THIRTY POSTS that were put up in December 2013? (No? Ah ahn :(. Oya, shekdemhat )
Before I return to my cocoon, (I shall re-emerge in march with the xx-files *Yaay!*) I want you to know that I appreciate your contributions, comments and critism. They mean a lot o! You have no idea. Use the comments section to fully express yourselves.
P.s – I am kidding about the beat boxing 🙂
Thank you so much lovelies. This challenge didn’t go as smoothly as I planned, so I appreciate your sticking with me through all the breaks and pauses. Honestly, I felt like quitting midway sometimes but I just couldn’t disappoint you like that. You guys are awesome.
Truckloads of hugs and kisses to all the great writers who contributed to this challenge. You guys totally rock!
It was a pleasure doing “business” with you. You brought fresh, inspiring and wholesome content to this blog (and quite frankly you saved my hide). Oya take :-* :-* :-*

Everything with a beginning certainly has an end, including your existence on earth. Even if you wanna live as long as Methuselah: Well, he still died after a loooong 969 yrs remember?
Death is inevitable.
The good news for us Christians is that death is not the end for us. Because you have received Jesus Christ as your lord and savior, you have everlasting life. John 3:16 (KJV), “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
After the end of our sojourn here, we’ll come before God and give account of how well we accomplished the assignment given to us; how well we lived our lives; how faithful we’ve been. We should look forward to this because the Joy of heaven awaits all who have lived faithfully.
Rev 20:12&13 (KJV), “
At the end of his life, Stephen, a man who did great signs and wonders for Christ, was full of the spirit and wisdom, was able to boldly say, “lord, receive my spirit.”
Paul could also boldly declare “My life is being given as an offering to God, and the time has come for me to leave this life. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have kept the faith. Now a crown is being held for me, a crown for being right with God. The lord, the judge who judges rightly, will give the crown to me on that day and to all who have waited with love for Him to come again.”
Jesus was able to tell His father that he had glorified Him and accomplished His mission on given to Him by the Father. What would be your account?
