A Tribute To Whitney Houston- RIP
It broke my heart when her life started falling apart, and I was one of those people who prayed she would get her life back, so this morning did not start on the happiest note for me. I thought marrying Bobby Brown was not one of her smartest moves, but I am not one of those people who attributed ALL her problems to marrying Bobby, because in my opinion, we give him too much credit, she was not a string puppet. (It;s like saying all Celine Dion's Success is cos of her husband or Iyke made Tina Turner) I believe people contribute to our failure or success, but we cant keep blaming or praising them forever, cos we have a role to play.
I have been feeling a bit low this weekend, trying to get over malaria and some other stuff, and in a strange way Whitney’s death has got me thinking….how much we fuss over everything and death just makes it all seem so vain, how much each day ought to be lived to the fullest, how we have to make each day count for good, because all we have is the very second, minute or hour to make an impact.
I am overwhelmed with so much emotion right now, not just by Whitney’s death, but by life itself. How we take each day for granted sometimes not knowing it just might be our last.
I am no preacher, I am just one very emotional individual who thinks our time here on earth is for a reason, reasons way beyond our vanities, our wealth, our looks and all that we hold dear. I am one of those who believe that whatever gift God has given us is a huge waste if we only use it for our benefit.
I am one of those people who cry and hurt over every injustice or suffering because I really think this world can be a very happy place if we could just treat people the way we would like to be treated, with what as I Christian I still call the “courtesy of Christ”
I am going to end this note saying,
Dear Whitney, I sincerely pray you find eternal rest in God’s bossom, hopefully you get to sing with the angels,and to my Dear readers, let’s try to make today count for good, because realistically, we don’t know if we will have a tomorrow.
