ADVISE FROM A RICH MAN

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In other’s eyes my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to. At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize all the recognition and wealth I took so much pride in have all paled in comparison because now life became meaningless in the face of impending death. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you. The material things lost can be found. But there is one thing never found when lost is “Life.” And the person fulfilling precious family times goes to places to created fond memories in appreciation of priceless valued lives. 83406ad0349c1f35c1959e514c16c3bbIf not otherwise years later in operating room realizes that there is one book has yet to finish reading called, “The Book of Healthy Life.” Whichever stage of life in right now, with time, do not wait until it is too late to faced the day when the life curtain comes down. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends and Treat yourself well. Cherish others. Growing older, became wiser and slowly realize that wearing a $300 or $30 watch both tell the same time in that specified location. Whether carrying $3000 or $3 wallet or handbag the amount of money inside is the same. Whether driving a $150,000 car or $300 car the road and distance is the same so both get to the same destination. And whether one drinks a bottle of $300 or $10 wine the hangover is the same. And whether the house lived in is 3000 sq ft or 300 sq ft, loneliness is the same. You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. Jesus said that a man’s life does not consist of material possessions.930701cdeec23a35bc6acb0a66887ac7Whether you fly first or economy class, in the plane you both arrive at the same time. You realize, when you have mates, buddies, friends, brothers, sisters, and family you chat with, laugh or talk with, sing songs and dance with or help each whether living north-south-east-west or in heaven or here on earth, That is true happiness!!!

Five Undeniable Facts of Life :
1. Don’t educate your children only to be rich to buy and sell. Educate them to be Happy. So when they grow up they will know the priceless value of life too not just the price of material things.

2. Best words in Bible, “Let your food be your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food.”

3. Those who love you never leave you because despite 100 reasons to give up on you they find one reason to hold on.ab073b809b0455b8b11cd832118781d3

4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it.

5. You are loved when born. You will be loved when you die. In between, learn to love God, others and yourself!

NOTE: If you want to Walk Fast, Walk Alone! But if you want to Go Far in life you join others go Walk Together!

MUSICAL INSTRUMENT’S JOY

'This lot play like they breathe,' says proud mum Kadie. pictured with Sheku after his winGod created us to make music and use musical instruments to sing. Music is an important part of worship and praise to God. My school on Fridays dedicated the first two hours of school lessons entirely to playing musical instruments and to sing. It was normal school not a music academy so we loved Fridays and most students can sing verses of the songs by heart. The repeated sessions of singing songs ingrained music in our memory. This love of music expressed meant we knew our head’s favourite as this song was played daily. Fitting music is found throughout scripture, joyful therapeutic or healing music brings comfort to the soul. We rejoice in sounds of music and it unifies people of all cultures sharing collection music. This is joy brought to the whole world through most talented family in UK. A 17-year-old became first black BBC Young Musician, six brilliant siblings and the parents who sacrificed everything for them are all noticed too. The seven Kanneh-Mason children by all accounts each musically gifted as the next. Kadie their mother said, ‘I do not want to take from Sheku’s achievement, I know how hard he works for it. ‘But could really have been anyone of them.’But he is not the only talented musician in the family. In fact, all six of his siblings are equally skilled when it comes to playing instruments. Left to right: Sheku, Isata, Braimah, Mariatu, Konya, Jeneba and AminataNow 19 years Sheku won performer of the year named BBC Young Musician in 2016. The Judges said that his concerto performance in London is ‘electrifying, sincere and also moving.’ The audience marvelled that a young man preparing for his AS exams delivered such great music. Sheku is first black youngster to win title attended the comprehensive school reserve elitist classical musician. To encourage and support him and cry when he broke a string and had to start again were his mum Kadie, dad Stuart and six siblings. This is where Sheku’s remarkable story touches many lives as they were keenly interested in playing musical instruments. His siblings can win award too as two brothers and five sisters: Sheku, Isata, Braimah, Mariatu, Konya, Jeneba and Aminata play instruments to grade eight level. They wakes every Saturday at 4.30am to catch the train to London to attend junior school of Royal Academy. And Konya, 17 Grade 8 piano at 11, violin at 12 won many regional trophies and Jeneba 15 Grade 8 at nine and highest marks in the area. The Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, 19, from Nottingham won BBC Young Musician. And Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s winning the Young Musician performance came through hardwork ethic, discipline, practice. Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, 17, from Nottingham, was named BBC Young MusicianThis talented musician family of all six siblings are equally skilled in playing instruments. This most talented family in Britain, might be the most talented family in the world. Simon Cowell said so when six eldest siblings appeared on Britain’s Got Talent as Kanneh-Masons. This family collection of musical talents shows each plays brilliantly. The eldest, 21-year-old Isata pianist, former Young Musician finalist herself. She studies full-time at Royal Academy of Music, by scholarship paid for by Elton John with whom she performed. She plays violin and viola to Grade 8 standard. In two of her Grade 8 exams she achieved highest marks in country. Braimah, 20, violinist achieved his Grade 8 by age 12. Sheku, first picked up a cello aged six and had his Grade 8 by age nine with the highest marks in the country. Their parents not musical but sacrificed much to ensure children pursue their passions. Sheku and brother Braimah Kanneh-Mason. The really surprising thing is neither of the Kanneh-Mason parents is musician. ‘It started with Isata,’ as the mum Kadie explains. ‘We started her on the piano because she was very bright so wanted to give her something more than just a schoolwork. She was given one piece a week and mastered it in ten minutes. So ‘Isata set the tone and, when the others were born, music practice was normal.’ Their parents, neither of whom are musical, have sacrificed much to ensure their children can pursue their passions.  Pictured: Sheku and his older brother Braimah Kanneh-Mason

‘We never set out to produce orchestra,’ adds Stuart. ‘It came as a bit of a shock to us, too.’ Their home is given over to music in Nottingham suburb, detached.  They have four pianos,’ says Kadie and three cellos, a viola, four violins. These children, called ‘prodigies’ as three of seven have perfect pitch. At home, four pianos, three cellos, viola, four violins, and children practice two hours daily. Consistency is the name of the game to ensure they are excellent at musical skills. Though talented, their successes are down to ‘hardwork.’ Each practises for at least two hours a day or more if preparing for exam or concert and Isata can play for seven hours. Dedication or passion for music came naturally and so were not pushed. The children love and enjoy music as Kadie said ‘they play like they breathe.’ The parents up at 4.30am on a Saturday, so deeply involved with children’s music, making sure a parent in every audience. Despite the high cost of train fares to music event all attend with their musical instruments. Their home has four pianos, three cellos, a viola, and four violins, and the children practice for two hours a dayOnce on way home, so exhausted Stuart fell asleep at the wheel car went into a ditch. He injured his wrist but thank God none seriously hurt decided to use train, despite costs. It’s a worry money dominates not Mozart or Mendelssohn. Costs of seven musicians in the family is quite daunting. Stuart’s work a business manager on a ‘good salary’ but Kadie, once university lecturer gave up work after child three. High costs means the family does not go on holidays in ten years. Their house of six bedrooms is heavily mortgaged and literally falling apart since every penny of our money goes on music. Have not decorated for years, tiles are coming off the roof. Never buys new clothes does girls’ hair because it’s too expensive to take them to all to hair salon. Car a wreck.’ Sheku able to enter Young Musician contest thanks to kindness of a retired luthier maker of stringed instruments. Frank White’s extraordinary loan of an entire package of instruments for the family, worth tens of thousands include Sheku’s first full-sized cello. Sheku’s amazing genius of musical sound hear Kadie says a broken dial oven emited high shriek Sheku identified note as ‘a very sharp G’ a wasp at window buzzing an ‘E flat.’Simon Cowell called them the most talented family in the UK when the six eldest siblings appeared on Britain’s Got Talent a few years agoSimon Cowell called them most talented family in UK when six eldest siblings appeared on Britain’s Got Talent a few years ago. ‘This could not happen if the sponsor did not donate instruments,’ Kadie says. ‘What would we have done without him? What will families do? I don’t know. One of Sheku’s strings cost £80. A cello bow is £2,000. The trains, the sheet music the overnight stays.’ All adds up so some assume they are rich like elite musicians of Royal Academy. Some are talented children from state schools joining private sector as parent with hole in shoes,’ says Kadie making extraordinary sacrifice for the children. Stuart says, we spend money on them as more important priority even if none a professional musician it is still worth it. ‘Playing instrument teaches discipline, self-belief, the importance of hard work. It gives them confidence. As parent, the joy is seeing them play together, or play on stage. They blossom with confidence in every area of their lives. I don’t think we will look back as money wasted.”Sheku picked up the cello at age six (pictured) and had reached grade eight by the age of nine

Issue of music provision in schools is a ‘woeful, inadequate subject,’ says Kadie. ‘I got free one-to-one lessons at school, I didn’t have a fraction of talent of my children yet not entitled to one-to-one lessons.’ Save for a few small council grants, Kanneh-Masons had no state help but support of schools particularly the comprehensive Trinity Catholic School in Nottingham is vital. ‘It’s a very unusual school, big on orchestras and “normalising” classical music,’ says Stuart. ‘A lot of teenage boys, feel it isn’t “cool” to play an instrument. Mercifully, ours never felt that.’ Meanwhile, race was not an issue for the Kanneh-Mason family until recently. Kadie’s family are from Sierra Leone, West Africa; Stuart’s from Antigua, in Caribbean. At school the children were always part of a mix of cultures. In the classical music world, increasingly aware they were rarities. Sheku is not only the first black winner, but he also attended a comprehensive school - unusual in the highly elite world of classical music

There are few more of us now but at the start in Academy, the only black faces were ours,’ says Isata. In the past few years the older Kanneh-Masons have all started to play in Chineke! Orchestra, Europe’s first professional orchestra solely of black ethnic minority players. Stuart believe change is coming, though, and that his family are at the heart of it. ‘I remember it being a huge thing when the first black footballers played in old First Division. Now look at how many black players there are at highest levels. It takes time but does happen and will.’ Sheku is not only the first black winner, but attended a comprehensive school – unusual in highly elite world of classical music. Sheku is looked up to as a role model for black children especially to help them believe all things are possible with God plus hardwork. Being part of a change is good for orchestra ethnic mix reflecting life in London or Nottingham. The colour of your skin has no bearing on how well you can play.’ Possibly the most extraordinary family watch them whenever you can, so fascinating. Two younger siblings, Konya and Jeneba, are already planning to enter next Young Musician contest taking place in 2018. It is necessary to remember that behind every great success or achievement is a loving, dedicated, supportive family.The Bible says in Matthew 6:25-34, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you will eat, or what you will drink or for your body what you will put on. Life is worth more than meat and your body more than clothes. God will supply all your needs according God’s riches in Glory by Christ. GOD PROVIDES NEEDS IN JESUS NAME!!!

He dropped a new 32-track double gospel album titled “Bible of Love.” “I’ve always referred to my Savior Jesus Christ on my records,” Snoop says in an interview on YouTube. “I would let people know I was a born-again Christian. Church is supposed to welcome sinners. If you find somebody trying to find their way back home to God, the natural thing to do is be warm and welcoming, open your arms to say, ‘Brother, we accept you as you are. We know you’ve been doing wrong but you wanna get right, so we’re gonna help you get right. We’re not going to throw stones at you.’” Come to Jesus now just as you are for Jesus will save you. 

e16cb1f8ccf7d2bda963eb2aee03dc72-snoop-dogg-taylorsSnoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., took the hip hop world by storm in 1992 when he was discovered and promoted by Dr. Dre. His freshman album Doggystyle shot to Billboard’s #1 spot earned quadruple platinum. His music belonged to the controversial genre that brought calls for censorship for promoting violence and misogyny, and Snoop’s life backed up his words. He denied belonging to a Rollin’ 20s Crips as youth in Long Beach, CA, but once tried for murder of a rival gang member (bodyguard off for self defense). In and out of jail for cocaine possession and other charges after high school.

INTIMATE ROYAL MARRIAGE

370223God’s incredible favour, honour and the privilege for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family since engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding on Saturday sums up Christianity. The royal wedding is compared to marriage of Lamb of God. Clement Ngissah wrote “Meghan Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry and who she becomes” to explain the believer’s important connection to Jesus always and favour of imputation of His righteousness attained thereby. Some of the lessons learnt from Meghan Markle’s lifestory is similar to how Jesus imputes His righteousness on believers. To qualify to enter His Eternal Kingdom Christian believers accepts Jesus’ Love proposal as the Bridegroom to become born again in similar fashion, Meghan Markle takes Prince Harry’s royal status so whenever with him all blood royalty below the Prince’s rank and status bow and curtsy to her although she is not a royal by blood or Princess Meghan. YeShe was not British or Royal by birth. She is an American. Her parents got divorced when she was six years old. Her father is Caucasian and her mother an African-American. She is half black and half white. She is a divorcee. She married her first husband, an actor and producer Trevor Engelson in September 2011 got divorced in August 2013. And she featured in movies in underwear sometimes showing what evangelicals define as ‘nakedness.’ Some allegedly leaked nude pictures of her on internet. To some people not the ideal woman to marry into royal family, importantly to marry sixth in line to the throne. For this reason was abused by many on the internet, on radio, tv etc. This made the British Royal Family’s communication secretary to release official statement in November, 2016 addressing the issues, ranging from sexism, to racism etc. But none of these, not her background as a ‘commoner’ or an African-American, an actress, a divorcee did not stop her. So after today, 19th of May, 2018, Meghan Markle becomes ‘Her Royal Highness Princess Henry, Duchess of Sussex and Countess of Dumbarton and Kilkeel.’ So for ease called ‘Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex.’ For the record she is first ever approved Duchess of Sussex in the history of royal family.IMG_20180521_122252

THE AMAZING THING is that although Meghan is not royal by blood, yet when with her husband Prince Harry or the Duke of Sussex, she will take his status and rank. As a result, all blood royalty below status and rank of her husband will have to bow and curtsy to her. On the contrary when she is alone then she has to bow and curtsy to blood royalty or anyone more senior than her. This helps to understand the imputation of righteousness of God. Like Meghan, our own self-righteousness cannot qualify us to be called Christians or qualify for the Kingdom of God. And as a result, we need Jesus Who gives His Name, status in order for us to be qualified to enjoy the privileges of God’s Royal Priesthood. In this case it is Jesus Christ of Nazareth our joint Heir makes us Children of God as Meghan from today officially known among the royal family. It’s not because of anything she did by her own accord or has done but because she is married to Prince Harry. She will receive secret service protection, diplomatic passports and enjoy other enviable privileges not because of her, but because of Prince Harry. In this context, Prince Harry is the way she has to all these. Without her Prince she is just Meghan Markle. In the same fashion the way to God to gain privilege in God in Christ and heaven is Jesus. We are qualified and will enjoy in heaven because of Him. We live forever because of our marriage to Jesus and it is not because of anything we did, have, will do or can do. And we are nothing without Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.jezus-christus

LESSONS FROM MEGHAN LIFESTORY.

1. No matter your past is. No matter the challenges, bad experiences you have gone through do not give up. Do not let your mistakes, setbacks and failures of the past to dictate your today and tomorrow.

2. Do not be over conscious of what people say about you. Don’t live your life according to the opinions of others. No matter the defamatory stories said or printed about you, whether true or false, don’t give up. Stand tall, apologize when you have to. Change when you have to. Reconcile when you have to and just march forward.

3. When your season is due, when it is your time to shine, believe nothing can stop you. No one knows tomorrow, your tomorrow can make your enemies, accusers, those who looked down or you to bow and curtsy to you. Be positive and work hard. The future is brighter.

4. More importantly, who you connect with is very very important. Who comes into your life is of great importance. Meghan Markle the actress because of her connection and marriage to Prince Harry is now someone so different with honour, higher status, privileges, care and attention she didn’t have before. She may not be royal by blood but because of her marriage some royals by blood have to bow and curtsy to her when she is with her husband.

As sinners we didn’t deserve it, our own righteousness couldn’t and cannot qualify us to enter the Kingdom of God except we repent believe in Jesus for Him to impute His righteousness on us. The same way Meghan Markle’s status as a popular actress, an American etc cannot qualify her and couldn’t qualify her to be called Her Royal Highness or for the royals to bow and curtsy to her but marrying the Prince and taking on his rank and status qualifies her. Who are you connected to? Jesus Christ of Nazareth wants to connect with you to save you, redeem you, to promote you, to Bless and Favour you and give you Eternal life in God’s Royal Kingdom.IMG-20180523-WA0001.jpg

The blue background of the shield on her arms represented the Pacific Ocean off California’s coast with two golden rays symbolic of the state’s sunshine. Meghan’s American royal arm features 3 quills representing communication and power of words. Beneath the shield, collection of golden poppies, California’s state flower and wintersweet which grows at Kensington Palace where she lives, the palace said. Next to shield are two “supporters“ one for her husband and one relating to her, a songbird with open beak which represents the power of communication. The good heraldic design is simple and the arms of the Duchess of Sussex stand well beside the historic beauty of the quartered British royal arms,” Woodcock said. Technical description of arms is “azure a feather bendwise argent quilled between two bendlets all between two like feathers argent quilled. To qualify in Kingdom of God one must wear righteous garments approved worthy of God’s Presence. In the same way the dress code for royal wedding conformed to their standards.

The Gospel message of dwelt upon is that God is Love and those who love have God in then because God is love. Jesus told young lawyer to love others and show love to his neighbours.”The Most Rev Bishop Michael CurryThe Most Reverend Bishop Michael Curry is the first African-American presiding bishop and primate of Episcopal Church, gave the address titled Power of Love at the service in St George’s Chapel. He opened his speech with the words of Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr, who said: “We must discover power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will be able to make of this old world a new world. Love is only way.” The bishop added: There is power in love. Don’t underestimate it. Do not over-sentimentalize that there is power power in love. In Jeremiah 23:29, Bible says God’s word is like a fire consuming like a hammer breaking and smashing selfish enemies of God.

I therefore proclaim that they are husband and wife.” The Archbishop joins their right hands together and said: “Those God joined together let no-one put asunder.” So the couple are now officially married and congratulations and God Bless all!!!Prince+Harry+Marries+Ms+Meghan+Markle+Procession+dGV9B2pH3jrlThis marriage ceremony was attended by numerous wellwishers, watched by millions all over the world to celebrate this living history modern integration of society. Lessons to be learnt from royal wedding between #meghanmarkle and #princeharry.

1. Attempting to use Meghan Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry and what she will become after today to explain how important it is for us to be connected to Jesus, be with him always and what the imputation of His righteousness means. God wants all people from all nations to have strong sense of belonging because we all have one father God. Humanity traces origins to the mitochondrial Eve and Adam in garden of Eden. This is the reason why people need to understand the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Nobody owns earth because it belongs to Almighty God Yahweh. This means people are entrusted stewards of God in charge of allocation distribution to ensure fairness and justice.

BUILDING A BABY’S BRAINS

pastedImageTop 10 tips to building a baby’s brain as Blackpool Better Start believes, building a brain is a lot like building a house and so must have strong foundation. Strong foundation builds the stronger resilient communities to help parents, essential for healthy structure of child’s brain.”

1) Support

Get support to create a solid foundation by ensuring that parents and caregivers have the right information and support available to meet a baby’s needs. In UK, Blackpool and other parts of country, having parents attend their antenatal programme and being involved with your health visitor, midwife and other people are there to support you through your pregnancy is really important during that transition into parenthood.Reading_800x534

2) Positive nurturing interaction

Developing a brain is an interactive process. ‘Serve and return’ activities can help with this – that’s the “goo goo” and “gaa gaa”, when you respond to what your child is saying to you. It’s like a tennis match. Maybe your child gives you a tissue, you take is and say “thank you”. Embracing those ‘serve and return’ opportunities helps build those interactions.

3) Read, read, read

Research shows us how beneficial reading is to a child’s development. The evidence we have proves children who are read to, by parents or caregivers do better in school. The have higher self-esteem, develop better relationships with other children and are better behaved. We recommend reading 15 minutes a day to your child – that does make a difference to their development.

4) Talk to Babies Early

When adults interact and elaborate what the child is saying to them – like asking questions, sharing rhymes and songs – then children start to develop those cognitive skills and the tools they need to succeed. Even when the child is saying something that’s not particularly intelligible, start a conversation with your child and let them recognise that you will interact with them in that way.

5) Managing stresses

We know that some stress is considered to be good – like meeting a new person, that can be good for a child. It’s for children who grow up in chronically stressful environments, they might be subject to violence, abuse and neglect. Those children experience ‘toxic stress’ and we talk with families about what toxic stress looks like and the impact is has on that child. Caregivers should be aware of the environment a child is in, be able to comfort them when they’re upset and calm their emotions. Helping a child’s stress response system come back to normal levels is really, really important.Family_Singing

6) Be attuned, responsive

The relationship between the main caregiver allows the baby to grow physically, emotionally, intellectually. We know that babies and children need to feel safe, protected and nurtured by caregivers, to identify responds to the child’s needs. Unresponsiveness lead to difficulties socially, behaviourally and emotionally which may affect the child’s physical and emotional development.

7) Outdoors

Remember the importance of outdoor play by using open spaces, parks and other outdoor settings. Look for outdoor opportunities which are vital for brain development and we know that play is essential for a child’s learning and well-being. It can help the parents too. Being outside as a family, particularly if you live in a small house or don’t have much space, getting outside and doing some activity can make you feel better, is good for the child and it’s free!

8) Nutrition and diet

A poor diet can negatively affect a child’s brain development and nervous system. But for us, it’s supporting parents getting their child into solid food. We know breastfeeding is really good for nutrition, because the milk in a mum’s body changes everyday to give the child what they need. We also know that once you move on to solid food, it’s about looking at what kind and how you serve the food to a child. There needs to be a good range of foods that will address their nutrition and diet.

9) Mum & dad take care

Obviously a expectant mother needs to be taken care of during pregnancy, because that vital for the wellbeing of the baby, but that continues well after birth. Establishing regular routines for sleep helps with brain development and stress, as does physical activity. Being physically active for 60 – 90 minutes a day helps strengthen brain connection with motor skills, balance, vision and other abilities. It also helps combat stress for mum. We think mums who have good nutirion, who are acitive during pregnancy are able to have a healthier birth.4-ways-to-nurture-your-childrens-growing-brain-2

10) Communities

We talk about communities a lot, because it’s not just the parents that help grow the child, it’s the whole community and extended family. Studies have shown that children tend to do better from strong, supportive communities. Everything we do is based around gearing up communities and parents to do more for themselves, by giving the community members skills, making them more understanding about child development and what they can do to support that. Children centres, peer supporters and trained volunteers can offset poverty and other risk factors in early development.
