LIFE IS A JOUNERY AS WE CELEBRATE AFRICA DAY AND THE 50TH ANIVERSARY OF” ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNION” Relationship last when two people make a decision or choice to fight, keep it or make it work. It's a union of d forgiver's. As Africans the journey of life is in evitable and culturally believe that it’s a repeatable process. Life is worth exploring and as African that is what we do, by travelling around and with our journey to Ireland. According to African believes “The dead were buried with their finest possessions, personal possessions and clothing for use in the next world” because they believe that after death you beginning another journey in life. Now I realise the journey of life thus not end with death but begins with your creator. Over time I have discovered there is no absolute finish line for everyone in the race of life. Our tracks are different and our durations are different. The only thing we have in common is the same empire. For instance, one person graduates @ age 20 and struggles for another 5 years to get a job, another might graduate @ 25 and get a job immediately. One can marry a virgin and wait for the next decade to have the blessings of children, another lady probably after having series of abortions in her past, becomes a mother almost immediately after marriage. A fellow becomes MD @ 38 and dies @ 56, another becomes MD @ 55 and lives to 90. What a life! Life is full of twists, turns, ups and downs and many more surprises and disappointments. Life offers each one of us different opportunities and once an opportunity is lost, it's gone forever except by the grace of God. It is up to each one of us to patiently prepare, wait, recognise and utilise every opportunity. We learn on the way. No one knows it all or has it better. There is a reason why we all don't fall @ the same time. It's so that when one is down, weak and discouraged, the other who is strong, can encourage and lift the other person. God never promise that the road would be easy but he promised never to leave nor forsake us. Although life is a competition, let us learn to go easy on ourselves and trust that God is working it all out for good (even if it doesn't make sense now). I know that there is a time for everything but most importantly that “it will come to pass ". Whatever trials, challenges or down time, this too shall pass and in due course, u will be up and strong again to lift up those who maybe down around u......NEVER LOSE HOPE..., I don’t know where myself fall into but with this am hoping to discover. Most of all life is a journey and love is inevitable also part of it....... Happy African Day from me and the team here at AfricaVoice celebrating the joy and journey of life.
