AN INTRODUCTION TO "ORNAMENTS OF A BLESSED LIFE"...OUR THIRD BLOG ON WORDPRESS.COM

Nigerian children in the diaspora…

The blog is http://edupedianigeria.wordpress.com or gemstones in general. It is a blog which mirrors what and whom God has made us to be.

We love teaching study techniques and life 101.We love watching Arsenal play beautiful football. We ascend into heavens amongst angels listening to any music hitting the bones. We are in love with scrabble and  read a few reasonable words  on many occasions from books and magazines- especially in our bathroom!

We are not rich man but not poor either. have a wife who is beautiful within and without and all our children are university graduates standing on their own and with their families navigating life’s waves. All these are what we call “the ornaments of a blessed life”

Personally, we like to be on our own, in the quiet of the night, reading, musing, planning, writing or just enjoying the bliss provided by life’s quiet symphonies. No noise and no wahala. Our minds,always at peace. Let those who want to be presidents and governors share their spoils and their unsympathetic lives. We are not crazy about houses or cars and it is  the wife who updates our wardrobe and what we wear. God bless her soul!  Even when we visited  Brazil with her we came out  with only  samba music and a pair of shoes! So we hope you  have an idea whom God crafted us to be? Thank you.

Please visit our third blog on WordPress (http://edupedianigeria.wordpress.com) today.That is,if you have not already done so. Come in and spend some quality time with us and if willing give a few  hints on areas we may need to improve upon.

The blog is neither as open as Facebook  nor as closed as a personal diary. It is mainly about LISTS that make up the ornaments of a life. It is about wise sayings personally compiled over many years. It is about books bought and put together as a library for almost 35 yrs. It is about lists of music and movies and other multimedia put together from my university days for well over 30 yrs too. It is  about lists and pics of students  whom God gave me the opportunity to “weed” over the past 25 yrs. Finally, it is also about  the historical highlights of  our  group of schools and its modest achievement.

Dear God, we thank you and the owners of WP for the opportunity at putting these lists together in a medium not as open as Facebook and not as closed as a personal diary. WordPress is the best outfit for publishers and noisemakers like us in the world! Above all its interactive potentials and security are not only awesome but guaranteed to last for many years to come.

The emphasis on http://edupedianigeria.wordpress.com may be LISTS OF THIS and LISTS OF THAT but they tell whom we are and whom we have been. They are what we regard as crystals and gemstones of a human life-my life. Sitting down to write this piece has reproduced and reminded us of a bone hitting song floating in our heads as follows…

(Whistling)

“Here is my song for the asking
Ask me and i will play
So sweetly i’ll make you smile…” (Simon and Garfunkel)
