I’ve been meaning to do a post about the green smoothie. Oh yeah,it’s all the rage right now,though some might argue that it’s been around for awhile but its suddenly getting a lot of attention & it’s very healthy indeed. It’s a mix of 60% fruit & 40% green vegetables. Blend in stages to avoid leafy chunks,use raw natural sweetners,that’s adding naturally sweet fruit to any smoothie that tastes bitter,fruits like banana,mango,apples,pears and pineapples especially. Avoid artificial sweetners and processed sugars My mum recently made a smoothie of  watermelon,banana,avacado,cucumber,berries,green apple,broccoli plus ginger & garlic!hers’ was more of a fruit smoothie than a green one,I should have taken a picture & put it up,totally slipped my mind. I planned to drink a little till I saw the ginger & garlic go in…changed my mind fast,lol. I took a tiny sip though & it was alright.You can make it your own & put in whatever works for you,but remember to maintain a balance between the fruit & vegetable proportion so its’ tasty & not bitter,its’ meant to be enjoyed afterall.

I know this blog isn’t much to look at yet,i’m still finding my ‘legs’. Hopefully it’ll transform into all it can be soon,so In the meantime please bear with me oo my people. Please drop your comments & have a great weekend.

High heels & Divine elevation.

Hello lovelies,happy Sunday,how u doing?*in Wendy Williams’ voice*. Hope your day went well? Mine was just fine.Went to church & was moved to share with you all a striking homily the priest delivered,but before that…

My mum recently bought several pairs of lovely high-heeled shoes,so I was dressing for church & spotted a pair I thought would go really well with my outfit & decided to ‘launch’ them for her,so I ‘climbed’ into them & off we went. The short distance from the car park to the main church I had to cling to mum’s arm for support. I said “mummy,I doubt you can survive these heels o,u better ‘dash’ them to me,if you wear them eh,you’ll be looking for your legs later”,She gave me a look & speedily assured me that she would be just fine. You know the type of shoes that make you have to mentally brace yourself before getting up to go for holy communion or offertory? I’ve never seen anyone marched off to kirikiri prison for wearing flat shoes. Hmm..I should embrace them more.

The homily was about divine elevation.Amongst other things the priest said that some of us do not wait for God’s time & try to force our elevation by cutting corners. Positions attained or things acquired through dubious means like bribery,cheating,diabolism etc, always come with repercussions not just for us but for the society & ends in stagnation sometimes. Alot of our politicians did not earn their positions but bribed their way through, they end up lacking the qualities needed to propel the society forward,resulting in a never ending cycle of poverty,stagnation & the likes. He encouraged us not to force our elevation but to wait on the Lord for Divine elevation that comes with no regrets or downside. He also said that every relationship should elevate us not bring us down,this applies even to men of God. We should relate with them in a way that helps them grow not strip them.
Yes,we already know a lot of these things we hear in church but a reminder never does any harm. Goodnight everyone and have a good week.
