Raving and Ranting

Hi blogville, I am not a very happy chappy at the moment and the reason is not far fetched....
someone lied to me...yes a lie is disturbing my day majorly...It is this colleague of mine...he is a chauvinistic pig(CP for short) and he just has this beef for me, honestly I don't know why but he does.
some weeks back I had to get some figures from the divisions I coordinate and he happens to be one of the accountants I need to deal/relate with on a regular basis.
He sent me his figures quite all right and shortly after that( I remember CLEARLY 'cos I don't have amnesia and I wasn't hallucinating...still not...), he goes

CP:" hey "NoLimit" have you sent those figures to central finance
Me:nope, but today is the deadline...
CP:pls I need to correct one of the figures can you just quickly do that for me...
ME:sure no worries will do that...

Fast forward to yesterday...I had to do a short analysis on one of the projects and I called him to talk to him about it here:

Me: Hey CP,you know the figures you changed will affect this project,what will happen now?
CP:NO I didn't change the figures...where is your evidence...
Me: remember the day you told me you needed to correct a figure...(my mind was like nooo this is not happening)
CP: If I were to make any change, I would have sent you a mail with regards to this....show me the mail...

My people I saw RED!!!...My eyes turned blazing red...I turned red...although I'm totally black like charcoal o...but my colour was RED!!!
If we were outside the office environment I probably would have punched this guy...I was that mad...There I was with figures all messed up and no evidence to back me up...I mean how stupid can I be...
Moral of the story,always have a back up...don't let this suckers take you on a ride...
I am still seeing red...I have prayed about it...I told God to punish him very well for me and I don't want the kind of punishment that he won't know where it is coming from...I want him to know that it is because of the LIE he is being punished by God...

But you know what the spirit told me this morning..."TAKE HIM TO LUNCH" I mean WTF...take a confirmed adversary to lunch...where's the sense behind that? pls somebody tell me o...or am I loosing my mind?...but I intend to obey sha...so I'm taking CP to lunch this afternoon...he doesn't know yet but I am...
Pls pray along with me!!!

Thankful Saturday...V3

Hello blogville...I've missed you guys like crazy...hope you're all good and your weekend has been quite restful like mine is...not.
This is my third post on thankfulness and I am extremely happy that I'm able to put this post up...
There's so much to blog about and so little time to put it down...but I'll keep trying...

Here goes my list for the week...

I am thankful for:

1.Obama's inauguration; This has given hope unlimited and deflated the lame excuse that there's a glass ceiling a black man can't get through...I can if I want...I need to remember that "talk is cheap"!!!

2.Another addition to my family...albeit extended...in a lighter mood:this weekly baby addition(s) is costing me men!Gosh!!! have they not heard of the expression: "make LOVE not BABIES"???...lol...okay y'all know I'm just kidding...I'm loving the added blessings that's what they are...

3...Ipod...facebook...They make communication sooo much easier(like you don't know already:-)...)NERD is the new COOL...well if you didn't know, now you know...I digress!
Got a call from a primary school mate...I was pleasantly surprised...while we were chatting on the phone, I smiled and sent a prayer to God for the brains behind facebook!

4.My job/work...was at the post office earlier in the week to pay some money...tax related...I noticed the queue was extremely long and was wondering why this was so...well I didn't have to wait for too long to find that out...I realised 90-99% of people on the queue were there to collect "giro"...benefit/allowance whatever it is called!
A cocktail of emotions ran through me...from anger to irritation to pity to disappointment etc...
While this was going on, I realised it could have been me standing there waiting to collect a handout from the government...just enough to cover the basics till the next week for the next fix! but thankfully...it isn't...I am truly thankful for His mercy and grace!

5.The grace to fight my many battles:He sure didn't promise a smooth ride...the road is bumpy and fabulous lol and I'm gonna love every nanosecond of the ride!

Hope we've not broken our new year resolution(s)...stay focused and stay connected to the Source...have a brilliant week...

7.I am thankful for my friend’s assessment…she came out tops!!!

Ten things "Saturday"!!!

Okay I should have put this post up since Tuesday...forgive me Aloted Omoge!!!
For a second there I forgot my manners *smiles sheepishly*!!!
Hey blogville peops...HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!!May the Lord spare our lives to see many more years!(amen)
Hope we've all been enjoying the weekend and I presume we haven't broken any of our new year resolutions...even if you have...don't knock yourself...just move on and try again...abi?
Right...this is my first Ten things post...I really hope to be consistent in putting this up(did somebody shout amen? ha I need it!!!
Here is a breakdown of what I'm thankful for...

1 Life: Being alive is a privilege, it’s not what I've done or not done, it is God's grace and protection

2 Family: I am grateful for my family...as crazy and unique as we are...you just can't come between us...I didn't choose this guys...God chose them for me...and even though we fight hard, we also love hard!!!...we've been through thick and thin...through the highs and the lows...but we are stronger...I am blessed indeed to have such beautiful crazy folks!!!

3 Friends: friends are families chosen by us...like I said earlier, I didn't choose members of my family but at least I have the freedom to choose my friends...they are amazing support in my life...only a friend will tell you when your mouth stinks...I appreciate the fact that they can level up with me and chastise me if need be or compliment me *always*…as the case may be!!!

4 Blogville: Through blogville, I've been able to make new friends and even though I haven't met many of them, I just appreciate the opportunity to learn from these great minds and view issues from different paradigms...I am also thankful for the opportunity to air my views without being crucified...it's MY blog after all abi? And if you don't like it, you either shape up...or ship out period!!!(lol)

5 Work: Hmmm I recently saw a letter I wrote to God about one dead end job I had 2yrs ago dated October '07...I can't but thank Him for giving me my present one He's is truly amazing and He truly listens!!!

6 Salvation: It is a privilege to know Him, if not for anything, I have the assurance of what I’m here for and the security of where I’m going ...I am truly thankful

7 Good health...Ask the bedridden patient in the hospital what it's like...and then you'll understand why I am thankful...

8 For a new year...2008 was an amazing year...but I know 2009 will be more exciting...no doubt about this!

9 Second chance: Now I don't know about y'all but I know that I didn't achieve everything I set out to do in 2008...no issues there though but I'm grateful for the opportunity of a second chance...and I know…He sure is a God of a second chance…there ain’t no stopping moi!!!

10 A warm duvet and a roof over my head!!! Lol…funny but not funny...volunteered for some homeless head count project and I was shocked to discover that some people actually live on the street even during this dreary winter season...now I hope you understand why I'm thankful for that roof over my head and my thick warm duvet! Nothing bits curling under it and zooming of to la la land right in front of the TV with my hand wrapped round a mug of hot choc (*gosh I'm dreaming in front of my pc at work*... somebody wake me up!) especially on a cold Friday night like this.



P.S
Didn't change edit number 10 cos I actually wrote this on Friday...
