THE LOVE LANGUAGE

Of the countless ways we can show love to one another, five key categories, or five love languages, proved to be universal and comprehensive—everyone has atleast one,i have two…here you go.
1.Words of affirmation
If this is your primary love language like me 🙂 Words mean alot how they are said, when they are said and said by who. Words can crush or uplift someone especially if that person falls under this category. Words include I love you, I miss you, thank you, sorry, thanks and more. So how do you apply this love language? first reflect and see if you fall under this category. If you do, tell your spouse and share what you like and dont like to be told,and if your spouse’s primary love language is words of affirmation, your spoken praise and appreciation will fall like rain on parched soil. Before long, you will see new life sprouting in your marriage as your spouse responds to your words of love.
2.Receiving Gifts
In every society throughout human
history, gift giving has been perceived as an expression of love. Giving gifts is
universal, because there is something
inside the human psyche that says if you love someone, you will give to him or her. Now men have a misconception about this love language, they think every woman loves gifts. Well not all love gifts. But a person who falls under this category loves to be showered with gifts, loves surprises and more,and this love launguage is also in men.
3. Quality Time
Now a person who falls under this category loves been given undivided attention. And when I mean undivided attention i mean no facebook, no whatsapp, no magazine, no newspaper, switch off or mute the TV and listen to that person keenly. You dont even have to respond just listen. Other examples include going to see a movie together, going for a long romantic walk, coffee date, being home on time and more. If your spouse’s love language is quality
time, giving him or her your undivided
attention is one of the best ways you can show your love.Ooops am guilty of having this as my second language of love.
4. Acts of service
In this love language actions speak louder than words, If acts of service is your spouse’s primary love language, nothing will speak more deeply to him or her emotionally than simple acts of service, Example, cook for them their favourite meal, massage them, help them with house chores and much more.
5.Physical touch
In marriage, the love language of
physical touch includes everything from
putting a hand on your mate’s shoulder
as you walk by, touching his or her leg
as you’re driving together, and holding
hands while you’re walking to kissing,
embracing and sexual intercourse.
If physical touch is your spouse’s
primary love language, nothing
communicates love more clearly than
for you to take the initiative to reach
out and touch your mate.

Now you know!!which are you?

ME IN A NUTSHELL

People say am so complex to understand,some think am weird,some think am sweet…i actually think am real.For the sake of a fun who asked me to do a piece about myself,here you go,just some little things you might not know about me.
1.i love Kids,they give me so much joy and satisfaction,if God allows ild want a dozen of them.
2.i love cars,big cars,so so much to an extend i cant help stare at such in town.my favorite as per now is Discovery 4.
3.i dislike cats and dogs and the dislike is mutual.
4.i love colours and prints, i can wear pink,green, red and yellow and still look awesome.
5.Am totally awful in directions,i can hardly remember the spelling of the word compass.
6.I dont have so many friends of my age,its either they are older or kids,but the ones i have are real treasures.
7.I don’t believe in love at first sight…period!!
8.I dislike red roses they are too mainstream ,white will do.
9.Cartoons and comedy don’t make me laugh,i find them lame…but that doesn’t mean i don’t have a sense of humour,i just laugh at things people find nothing funny about.
10.Am not moved by big things people struggle to do for me,but the small little things that people think don’t count.
11.i love horses and would want to own a ranch some day.
12.Am a number person but quite artistic,music,spoken word and poetry are my addictions.
13.i am quite a dreamer but with time av learnt to make a clear cut between fantasy and reality,optimism and pessimism are words that have never been applicable to me.

GIFT OF GRACE-Jessica King

1.I remember the first time we met
i was living life with deep regret
but i remember well that sacred place
where i recieved your precious gift of
grace

The Gift of Grace is free
to all who choose to come
to the cross where the father gave his
only son
I’ll never understand
why he loved a common man
so much he would die in our place
I’m so thankful for the gift of grace
I’m so thankful for the gift of grace

2.I’ve come limping back to you again
wounded from the burdens of my sin
Guiltly and ashamed of my mistakes
but then you extend your endless gift of
grace.

A LETTER TO THE ALMIGHTY GOD

Sharon Ireri
P.o.Box7343-00300
Nairobi

MIGHTY GOD
P.O.BOX HEAVEN
UP THERE

Dear God,

Re:REQUESTS
I realy hate to bother you,but av got a whole lot on my mind.I will be brief so i don’t take most of your time because i know their other more important letters you got to read,but please read my letter to the end.
First,i want to thank you for all of my prayers you have answered and for making an effort to read all the letters i write you in my secret chambers and for the replies though not in letter form.i want you to know that i really appreciate.
Second,is to ask whether you have not gotten my last letter,av been sending it over and over again for the last 20years but av never gotten a reply,not even a word to let me know you have received it.Am soo desperate for an answer,please i beg you God to answer me.i need a YES,a go ahead sign or even a NO to which i can resign,but no reply at all is making me so depressed.
Thirdly,Everlasting one,i need your grace to see me through all this challenges you allowed the devil to put on my way,i read the story of Job in the bible and i now perfectly understand what this is all about,but Dad u know i cant even walk without you holding my hand,so how will i make it through this without you and your Grace?You promised that your Grace will be sufficient for me,then why am i feeling this way?Please Lord,replenish me with your Grace.
Finally,Lord i need Love,i need to feel Loved not only by people but by you,i need to feel that kind of Love that only comes from you.i know you understand what i mean,there so many storms in my life that won’t let me see the sun shine,but if you only squeeze my hands and wrap me in your arms am sure il make it through.
I had so much to say but i promised il be brief so il just conclude here for now,i want you to know that I LOVE YOU SOO MUCH,and that there is nothing more i want than to see you face to face,but until then,KEEP ME IN YOUR WILL,SO I WILL NOT BE IN YOUR WAY.

Your loving Daughter
Sharon Ireri.

LULLABY TO BABY SHARON

Days i wish i had someone to sing me a lullaby….but since am all grown and no one can do that for me now il do it for myself…lullaby from adult Sharon to baby Sharon…hehe

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky

When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light
Twinkle, twinkle all the night

Then the traveler in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark
He could not see which way to go
If you did not twinkle so.

In the dark blue sky you keep
And often through my curtains peep
For you never shut your eye,
‘til the sun is in the sky.

As your bright and tiny spark
Lights the traveler in the dark
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
(how come baby sharon is not sleeping? ?)

success

if success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life… but as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed then i would count myself as a successful girl

***

Today i remembered an act of faith when i was still little and i found a reason to laugh.As a child i had so many ambitions,goals and visions not that i don’t have them now:i still do,just that they are closer to reality,as a child i was an optimist but am now a realist,thats the only difference between baby sharon and adult sharon,plus afew wrinkles ofcourse.I really dont remember the whole story in details but i remember me and my kid sister kneeling next to my bed and holding a hundred shillings praying for God to add a zero so that it will be a thousand shillings,and we would open our eyes and still the money would have two zeros and we would start praying over and over again,i remember we prayed for an hour before mum came back home and found us praying,she stood by the door and listened,and when we opened our eyes she called us and made us sit next to her,she explained that we should not ask God to add a zero to the money so that we would buy something with the thousand bob rather we should pray for God to give us what we would want to buy with the a thousand shillings. We went back on our knees and told God the specific thing we would want to have and surprisingly dad brought us whatever we wanted when he came home,it really didnt matter whether mum told him or not,what mattered is that God answered our prayers,and today i hope He can answer mine,not all of them for a start just that major one…I hope God reads my blog and will answer my prayers.
Song quote:…for ave reached desperation and ave stumbled since my start,ave gone weary through the years,now am crying bitter tears from the depth of my heart
