“Your Majesty, i just uncovered a plot by some disgruntled elements to destabilize your coronation by abducting you and killing you. As we speak they are finalizing the plans and i have proof to show how advanced, the plan has gone.” Le Coquin then presented to the King-in-waiting the communication and handwritten notes of Verstockt that he had stolen from his house.

To Be Like Jesus – Conclusion.

We all want to have our own way. All things must work out for our own way. We want everything, wealth, riches, abundant life, the good car, the beautiful wife, fantastic kids, vacation to Dubai, social status, want to be wanted, to be loved, celebrated….wanting to appear important.

To Be Like Jesus

Several times, I have sat and thought long and hard over what to write. I have stories popping into my head and I try as hard as possible to see how I could flesh it up and be able to present it to my audience.
Most times, I just get a mental block and I abandon the idea. A dear friend told me probably I have too much on my mind and it’s not allowing the ideas to flow through. Maybe????

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
