Storm Frank Causes Severe Flooding In Northern England

Storm Frank has left thousands of homes without power and flights delayed after battering the UK with extreme weather.  Widespread disruption has been seen in Northern Ireland, with thousands of homes experiencing power cuts.  The storm is now set to heap more misery on flood-ravaged homeowners in northern England today, with officials warning them to brace themselves for further damage from torrential rain and gale-force winds.

The power companies experienced faults which caused more than 2,000 homes to lose power.  Passengers on nine flights into Belfast International Airport were temporarily held on planes as high winds of up to 55 knots, about 63 mph, prevented ground crews getting access steps in place

What The Witches Said - Reuben Abati

"How was Christmas?”
“It’s come and gone. Life goes on. We thank God for the gift of life.”
“Life will always go on.”
“But without life, we can’t have hope.”
“Without hope, life has no meaning.”
“I am still in a Christmas mood though. I get a chance to rest a lot during holidays”
“Where were you?”
“I was in my home town, the city of hope. I refused to be deterred by fuel scarcity, the scarcity of cash and the scarcity of goodwill.”

Merry Easter from Steve Harvey

Steve taking the mickey on himself - Good to know his sense of humour is not waning.

Remembering Christmas - Reuben Abati

Christmas looks so different these days from what it was when I was growing up. It is so different it is almost unrecognizable. In this same country, in the 70s, Christmas was a season of celebration, but also of spiritual upliftment, joy abundant, hope, reaffirmation of faith in the certainty of Salvation, and the ritual of that which begins, and that which ends, as a New Year beckoned.  We were brought up on a steady diet of Sunday School lessons, and so Christmas and Easter were very much a part of our growing up. We always looked forward to Christmas with excitement. It was that time of the year when we all wanted to act one role or the other in the re-enactment of the drama of Nativity.

The preparation for this drama, which was usually staged during Christmas service, to the sound of melodious songs and priestly excitement, was the high point on Christmas Day of the celebration of Christ The Lord.  Weeks earlier, the church organized Christmas Carols. If you made the special choir, you felt as if you had won a lottery. Everyone was a songster of sorts, belting out Christmas Carols in both English and the local language. Parents singing. Children singing. Everyone dancing.  The feel-good mood was so intense. You could run into people on the streets and the standard greeting, be they Muslims or Christians, was “Merry Christmas!” The official church Carol team went from one church member’s home to another to deliver the good tidings of the season and to announce the coming birth of the Saviour. Christmas strengthened our sense of community, and our Christianity and faith as well.

Merry Christmas!

May this beautiful season not bring u sorrow but strength, May the thoughts of suicide be far away from you, May the thought of Loneliness be filled with the Love of God... It's easy to fall into depression this season because of the constant reminder that Christmas season is best spent with our loved ones and the sight of others happiness can be a painful reminder of what you might have lost... My sister, My brother you are not alone, You are the reason for the season.. You are the reason God has sent his only begotten son to come to earth and fill that void in your heart.. Be strong! let God come in and mend those wounds, and be your plus one and provider.. I wish you a beautiful holiday my darlings.. It's well and will always will be IJN.. AMEN.
