Don't Get Stuck ....

Poverty is going to spread because governments are not grappling with issues that are capsizing the boats of families . In most countries the  political class , is so far distanced from the hardships of a normal life that they can't even connect with the poor.

Despite having resources aplenty political leaders in country after country have come under no pressure to be truly driven to substantially reduce poverty . In several cases families  whose lives have gone under water , who can't even pay for their daily provisions just give up on seeking help and wait for an end to their days.They are just a health bill, a payday , a loaf of bread away from slipping under drowning their families along.As voices decry this apathy the toll on families continues to spread .

Ultimately whose baby is it ? Is it the government's? Or helping hands from kith and kin ? Or yours ?

The first instance of stewardship is always the individual's.

Doing something about what is coming or preparing against doomsday is still the individual's.

Don't fail yourself.

Be A Sheep

Sheep have traits, characteristics, mannerisms and feelings that make them an excellent illustration of being bold in life.

Sheep are not always the passive creatures that one imagines in green pastures. Everyone who raises sheep will tell you, “Never turn your back on a ram.” Many have been seriously injured when they ignored this advice. The butting of rams seems almost ceremonial among them. They do it apparently to establish social rank, to get food, to get out of a gate, or to settle their differences. Sometimes they do it to gain attention.

Sheep have excellent peripheral vision. Their large, rectangular pupils allow them to see almost 360 degrees. In fact, they can see behind themselves without turning their heads!

By nature, they will always seek light and higher ground in the pasture

They have an exceptional capacity to sense danger

A Bridge You'll Come To ...

There are bridges to cross in life

And forever and forever,
   As long as the river flows,
As long as the heart has passions,
   As long as life has woes;

There is a bridge, I’ve been told,
Legend declares it is very old,
Far away, it is not easy to find,
Some say it takes a whole lifetime.

We begin to groan with middle age years,
Time passing too fast has become our fear.
Regrets for things for which we never had time,
Alone now, we are left with memories sublime.

Tottering, doddering, now I am frail,
Nodding, I fall asleep and dream of a trail,
It leads to that bridge, of which I was told
Long, long ago, before I grew old .
