This week I watched the full 3 hour video of Whitney Houston’s funeral service. There was a lot of buzz about how Whitney made the whole world go to church via CNN. Pastor Marvin Winans was on point. The saddest bit for me was the end when they played this song as they rolled the casket away. It was Whitney bidding farewell to all of us.
There was a time I would have been very unforgiving towards people who were involved in any addiction and had this ‘serves you right’ ‘holier than thou’ attitude. But these days I realise how powerful addictions can be and how hard it is to fight. I think just admitting you have a problem is probably the hardest thing to do.
See you Monday
I know, I know it has been quite a while.
1. I’m still blogging
I haven’t fallen off the blogosphere. I will be around. God is good. I have really enjoyed blogging in the past one year. In fact, I am now in the process of registering a domain purely dedicated to blogging. Soon we will have a permanent (!) home.
2. Never take a break that is not defined
I knew I needed a break in December. But I did not define for myself how long this break was going to be, so I kept postponing my return, until now
3. God is still amazing
I really cannot say it all. He has been so good to me. When I consider all the things He has brought me and my family through and given us joy, hope, love and peace, I can only say “How amazing!!!” “Walalalala”… and many other words that just express wonder and gratitude.
4. Samsung Galaxy S 2 rocks!
This is a very very good smartphone. I made the switch from the iPhone 4 recently to this amazing phone. The only thing that sucks about it is battery life, but there are ways to get around that.
5. Election year
Guys, relax, it is only life. The day after the elections, we will still have a country we will need to continue building. Whether or not the Ocampo 3.5 go to ICC jail, life has to go on. Kalonzo is going nowhere as usual, but this time he seems to have a ticket!
