2012 In Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 57,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 13 Film Festivals

Click here to see the complete report.

Please Note ……..

My Twitter account have been hacked and hit by SPAM.

Like Sherline’s Whatchu Thinkin Blog, I had received no less than 168 direct messages since yesterday evening, from my followers informing me that a user saying horrible things about me and a link was provided.

Upon reaching the link, I was told it was a phishing site and the link terminated. As a precaution, I changed my password but the problem could still persist. Furthermore, my tweet, “I lost 20 lbs with acai berry …….” (it is on your right) is definitely not from me. I tweet mainly quotes.

Meanwhile, kindly ignore any tweet or direct messages from me because I suspect my account may have been compromised.

Thank You and Best Regards !!!

Update:

I received a notification from Twitter after publishing this post – informing me that they have reset my account and advised me to change my password again. Thanks for responding Twitter and for the concern shown by all of you.

Counting Blessings On A Beautiful Sunday.

Time has a way of whizzing us by. Moving so quickly and catching us unaware of the passing time ………….. It seems, it was only weeks ago, all of us were busy celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, followed by a New Year and more recently Valentine’s Day.

It seems, just not too long ago that I was a young, school going lad. Then, a young man – full of confidence, enthusiasm and courage, eager to embark on a journey in search of realizing my dreams and ideals. Got married along the journey, then ……………………… So many Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Valentine’s Day had passed, one after another.

Sitting in my garden, looking at the sky, watching the birds and butterflies flying around this beautiful Sunday morning, I wonder where all the years have gone?

I have been either responding or reacting to every event or incident that cropped up in my life to the best I could. So much so, I am now a weather beaten man, so to speak. I know I lived them all.

I know I cannot be young forever. I used to think that winter was still far off. But, here it is, the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise. How did I get here so fast? Where did my years go? And where did my youth go?

As I looked up at the sunny sky in search of some comforting answers, I recalled the beautiful words God said to Joshua once – when he was old and well advanced in years. The Lord said, “You are very old and there are still very large areas of land to be taken over. “

Ah…….., you see, I told myself, God was not finished with Joshua yet and I believe He is not finished with you yet. He has still more for you to do in His kingdom. So it is only when He call you home that your work, your contribution, will finally be done.

Today, the 19th of February 2012, I have added another year to my life. I have just turned sixty-one. Growing-up and not growing old. As I enter this new season of my life.  I am not sure how long the winter will last …………….. You see, our life is like a vapor, it vanishes away …………….. With the Grace of God, I will continue to be useful and productive as I continue my journey in winter.

Peace, Love, Understanding and Blessings, to all of you, my friends. !!!
