Have you made the most important decision of your life? Where will you spend Eternity? To make heaven is as simple as ABC- Accept you are a sinner, Believe that Jesus died for your sin and Confess HE is Lord.

Women mature much faster than men (So so so true! Proven over and over!). Most 17-year-old females can function as adults. Most 17-year-old males are still trading baseball cards and giving each other wedgies after gym class. This is why high school romances rarely work.
To their credit, men do not decorate their penmanship. They just chicken-scratch. Women use scented, colored stationary and they dot their "i's" with circles and hearts. Women use ridiculously large loops in their "p's" and "g's". It is a royal pain to read a note from a woman. Even when she's dumping you, she'll put a smiley face at the end of the note.
A man has at most six items in his bathroom - a toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of Dial soap, and a towel from the Holiday Inn. The average number of items in a typical woman's bathroom is 437. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.
A woman makes a list of things she needs and then goes to the store and buys these things. A man waits till the only items left in his fridge are half a lemon and something turning green. Then he goes grocery shopping. He buys everything that looks good. By the time a man reaches the checkout counter, his cart is packed tighter that the Clampett's car on Beverly Hillbillies. Of course, this will not stop him from going to the 10-items-or-less lane.
When a man says he is ready to go out, it means he is ready to go out. When a woman says she is ready to go out, it means she will be ready to go out, as soon as she finds her other earring, finishes putting on her makeup...(Classic! Ask any guy in a relationship or is married)
When preparing for work, a woman will put on a Mondi wool suit, and then slip into Reebok sneakers. She wil carry her dress shoes in a plastic bag from Saks. When a woman gets to work, she will put on her dress shoes. Five minutes later, she will kick them off because her feet are under her desk. (I couldn't stop laughing when I read this..hehehehehehe). A man will wear one pair of shoes for the entire day.
Men are vain; they will check themselves out in the mirror. Women are ridiculous; they will check out their reflections in any shiny surface--mirrors, spoons, store windows, toasters, Joe Garagiola's head (checked out Joe Garagiola and found out he is bald, lol).
Men see the telephone as a communications tool. They use the telephone to send short messages to other people. A woman can visit her girlfriend for two weeks, and upon returning home, she will call the same friend and they will talk for three hours.
If a woman is out driving and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings, she will stop at a gas station and ask for directions. Men consider this to be a sign of weakness. Men will never stop and ask for directions. Men will drive in a circle for hours, all the while saying things like, "Looks like I've found a new way to get there", and, "I know I'm in the neighborhood. I recognize that White Hen store".
Women will sometimes admit making a mistake. The last man who admitted that he was wrong was Gen. George Custer. (checked him out too: Gen George Custer was was a United States Army cavalry commander, note- he was born in 1839..lol)
Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and soccer games and romances and best friends and favorite foods and secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house. (This isn't always true, I know a number of fathers who act otherwise but I think moms are more gifted in this area)
A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the garbage answer the phone, read a book, get the mail. A man will dress up for: weddings, funerals.
Women do laundry every couple of days. A man will wear every article of clothing he owns, including his surgical pants that were hip about eight years ago, before he will do the laundry. When he is finally out of clothes, he will wear a dirty sweatshirt inside out, rent a U-Haul and take his mountain of clothes to the laundromat. Men always expect to meet beautiful women at the laundromat. This is a myth.
When reminiscing about weddings, women talk about "the ceremony". Men talk about "the bachelor party".
So do you agree with these differences or not? :->

God has blessed me with a wonderful family- my parents are the best in the world…I could never ask for a better set of parents! I see the love between my dad and my mum flourishing and maturing every now and then and my heart desire is to have such love when I get married. My siblings are da bomb…though I don’t say this every day I love you guys!!! My extended family is also one of a kind! We are all so tight. God bless you all.
I cannot but say that I have been blessed to be surrounded by loving and caring friends at every point in my life. I have been on the go (traveling up and down for school n stuff) ever since I was 17 and I have never had cause to meet or mix with the wrong crowd. I have had good friends in this life: school, work, church etc and I cannot begin to say how grateful I am to God for meeting every one of you (quite a number I must say!). I hope I have been half the good friend to y’all as you have been to me…
I also want to thank God for giving me the best man ever in the whole wide world…You rock my world. I love you baby. ;)
For my fans in blog world (lol)...I thank God for your life and all the comments you have sent me…You are the ones that make blogging fun.
Today is going to be great! Since 12a.m my phone has been busy- phone calls & smses. Thanks to all those that have hollered at me so far. This time last year, I was in the UK and my friends there, had a cool party for me. I wonder what today will turn out to be, hmmm...
Anyhow it goes, I'll feel u in ASAP ;)

Anyway today what I really want to talk about is on training your will. Most people feel/think they do not have any control over their attitudes, moods and emotions. I say to you that this is a lie. As human beings we have control over what we think, how we feel and how we behave. This is one difference between us and other creatures of God. I guess the reason why most people believe this lie is because they have not trained themselves to be in control. So today, I would like to take you on a journey of training your will by doing the following tasks:
- Smile when you’ll rather frown
- Say a gentle word when you’ll snarl
- Do a kind deed, however simple, when you’ll rather take your ease
- Think a good thought when you’ll rather not think at all
- See something beautiful in every disagreeable task
- Speak only good about those who cross your path
- Deny yourself some little thing each day
- Be joyful even in the face of sorrow and misfortune
- Give thanks to God even for those things which try your soul
You can start by taking the first task and training yourself on that- "Smile when you'll rather frown". Write it down on post-it notes, on your note book, think about it constantly, say it out to yourself every morning when you wake up till it becomes stuck in your mind. Now actualizing it might be difficult the first time, especially if you are upset and you dont even feel like smiling at anybody, but just try it out..u might not feel it in you, it might come out fake but just smile!.. I believe you'll get better at it. Also you can tell your friends, family, loved ones about what you are doing. That way you are accountable to them and they can remind you when you are going off course. Tough hey!
When you master the first task you are ready to move on to the next, till you have trained your will on each task. At the end of it all am sure your attitude will improve exponentially. This might take a while but I think it is worth your time.
I know this can be very arduous but with God on your side and determination in your heart you can do it. Am starting my training today! ;o)
Please feel free to share your experiences with me or on any other tips on how to improve one's attitude. :)
