Smile when your heart is broken smile...
When your tears have floated smile..
In the bruises of your soul; smile...
When your future is unsure; smile..
When a thoughtful love has hurt you ; smile
At the fear that surrounds you;smile..
In the unbearable pain in your soul; smile...
The midst of loneliness;smile...

This is the way to forgive...
This is the way to believe...

And now...i think my life is broken...

Shush my dear, don't think this way.
It's a lesson for you to learn
The truly you smile the stronger you become.
The truly you smile the healing has began.

See yourself the way you ought to be...

Petroleum Jelly: A Friend and Enemy and My Theory-pt2

Petroleum Jelly: A Friend and Enemy and My Theory (The experiment-pt2)
written by Flower princess of Vivid thoughts of Glory©

I proceeded to try it after a long time of avoiding it. The first impression was actually pretty good I felt that the hair scales where smoothed so I knew it was good. I proceeded to twist it I monitored the twist out a day later it was ok nothing extraordinary shiny moisture minimal frizz and defined. I then twisted back.
Now almost a week my hair is not dry as I expected. I actually moisturized and seal again in that week. But still it supposed to be dry? According to what I have been hearing.

Now let’s come to the petroleum’s that makes petroleum jelly evil. 
No complicated talk let me analyze it the easy way:

  • Scalp: it can, let me say can slow down hair growth and block the scalp follicles: I didn’t recommending on the  scalp so that is out of the talk
  • Hair: it can block moisture from leaving or entering the hair shaft: doesn’t that remind you of  anti humectants?
  • It attracts dirt: Most of the hair products attracts dirt hair itself can hold on and smells just like our clothes sebum can attract dirt and dust so do oils.

It must be wash off with shampoo- Most trichologist and hair experts don’t down the use of SLS shampoo so it is a delicate matter.

watch out for part 3! :)

Robot life-A Christians way to conscious interactions.

Robot life-A Christians way to conscious interactions.

written by Flower princess
please do not plagiarize

Recently I’ve realized that our lives have started becoming automatic. We are leaving less consciously. This is a lesson first to me and then to you, if you accept the truth in it. From waking to eating to sleeping and so on. We do things without paying attention. Why?

1. It seems normal and in fact in this world who wants to be abnormal?!
2. It is easy. Once you get used to it, it just happens instantly.
3. We haven’t realized or take notice of this fact. Life is moving so fast to notice.
4. Life is getting automatic; everything is being set on autopilot.
5. The fear of being mediocre. Not so good for the people around you.
6. it’s comfortable.
7. You can’t control yourself anymore or maybe you have no choice.
The list can goes on to the reasons why things are happening like that.
But you know what I’ve realized?

In doing so
  • We lose our lives.
  • We forget that our true home is with God.
  • We become ‘religious’ in the bad sense.
  • We forget the purpose of our living or creation.
  • We look normal in what’s not normal and remain just another ordinary person.
  • We conform to our surroundings, whether good or bad.
  • We become emotionless.
And the most important is…
That’s what I’m going to analyze now.
Let’s think together.
When was the last time I said good morning and really meant it?
When was the last time I said bye, sorry, hello, love you, God bless you, a compliment, gave a hug e.t.c and really meant it?
These are just some examples but think of sentences you frequently say or things you do.

It’s easy to say I hate you and mean it than to say good morning.
I realized that it’s easy to say something negative and really mean it.
What do I mean when I say mean it?

Let’s check it out. When we say or do things from our heart there is an emotion or a mixture of emotions either positive or negative that is being released. When we talk or act casually in the autopilot mode we feel and release voidness.

 How do i bring more positive emotions in my life?

1. The first step is by developing your relationship with God. A healthy relationship with God is the base of godly interactions with others.
2. Meditate upon the word of God and give him the chance to tell you how you can live consciously.
3. Pray and ask God to help you to practice what he expects and told you to do. But before this you must forgive those who hurt you. Yes, that’s the tough part and a constant struggle but with God’s help it is possible. Then ask him also to forgive you from your sins. This way you get cleansed and healthy spiritually which will eventually show in your physical interactions.
4. See life the way God wants you to see it. See the many blessings you have and smile from your heart. Even if things are tough remember God’s love in giving his son and be grateful. You are not forgotten.
5. Share Gods love and emotions. Say hello, laugh, cry, and smile but do it from your heart. Yes i said cry! Crying  releases the negativity that you store inside you or can also be an expression of overwhelming happiness. Give a huge hearty hug to someone today! Be genuinely and respectively yourself in Christ. This way you remain healthy in the heart and soul. Now it’s easy; continue to live like this!
God bless you!

Are you hungry & thirsty?

Are you hungry & thirsty?

John 4:1-15 (KJV)
When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
2(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
3He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4And he must needs go through Samaria.
5Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8(For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
9Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

Are you hungry and thirsty?Do you feel that you want to know more and more about God?
When you become born again the Holy Spririt comes to live inside you.He gives you the desire to do the things of God.
Like 1 Peter 2:1-3 (NAS) says:
1Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,2like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,3if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.
Once you are now a Christian you have to feed yourself with the word of God in order to grow!If you don't feed yourself with the word of God you'll eventually get malnourished and die.The more you eat the word of God the more you grow.Think of it like this.There must by a balance between your physical and spiritual life.If you don't eat physical food you die.The same goes with your spiritual life.Though you never get fat Laughingwith the word of God because you never get full of it!If you want to grow spiritually from a new born baby (born again) you must:

1.Develope your relationship with the Holy spirit (this is very important)
2.Read the word of God a get someone like your Pastor explain whatever you don't understand.By reading the word of God ,God speaks to you.
John 1:1
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
3.Pray and always ask for forgivness.By praying you communicate with God.The highest form of prayer is worship.
4.Allow him to speak to you by having a quiet time with him.
5.Be active at the things of God.By replacing your worldly activities with Godly activities.
6.Fast whenever the Holy spirit convicts you.
7.Bear good fruit.
Matthew 7:15-20 says:
15“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.16By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?17Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.20Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
8.Share the good news with others and be a helping hand in bringing people into God's kindom.
This list is not perfect but i thank God for giving me the ability to write this article and help others.May God bless you all.

How to do flat twists

written by Flower princess of Vivid thoughts of Glory©

If you have been struggling to do flat twists here's how to do it.
They might look bad in the very beginning of but with time and trial the'll look better.

1.Part your hair vertically for the flat twist in the same manner they part for cornrows

2.Grab a small piece of hair from the beginning of the section you are about to flat twist.

3.Split it into two -let's call it A(left ) and B(right)

4.Twist it anti clockwise or clockwise.Lets say now we are doing it anti clockwise,so i twist/cross B over A

5.Grab a little extra hair from the section,add it to A and twist/cross A(with the added hair) over B.Now B will be behind A.

6.Grab a little extra hair and add it to B now twist B over A and continue step 5 and 6 till you end the twist.

7.Once you reach the end continue by doing a regular 2 strand twist.

Tip:While doing this keep your hands close/on top of your scalp.

Petroleum Jelly: A Friend and Enemy and My Theory-pt1

Petroleum Jelly: A Friend and Enemy and My Theory (Eureka moment-pt1)
written by Flower princess of Vivid thoughts of Glory©

Few weeks ago I was wondering about the qualities of a humectants. 

What is a humectant?
A substance that affect and hold water molecules (Moisture) from the surrounding environment. [It is said that in case the surrounding environment is dry it can take moisture out of the hair into the environment (I haven’t look unto that yet so i can't verify if it's true).] I then decided to look up anti-humectants

What is anti-Humectant?
Substance that repels moisture and is not hygroscopic
As I was meditating on the definition of an anti-humectant a though popped ! an eureka moment
Since petroleum jelly avoid moisture from entering and/or leaving ( evaporating) the hair shaft it can categorized as anti-humectant and a great sealant.

What do you think?

If You Were Hurngry Wouldn't You Ask For Food to Eat?

God bless you all & Glory be to God.Written by Flower princess for God Bless Africa ©

If You Were Hurngry Wouldn't You Ask For Food to Eat?

What is food?
food [fuːd]n
1. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Biology) any substance containing nutrients, such as carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, that can be ingested by a living organism and metabolized into energy and body tissue
2. (Cookery) nourishment in more or less solid form as opposed to liquid form food and drink
3. anything that provides mental nourishment or stimulus food for thought
Today we would be looking at this subject of course in a spiritual perspective.
What is  the spiritual food?
The Word of God and any thing that comes from it.
Who is spiritual  food for?
Hungry Christians.
Who is a hungry Christian?
A Christian that is craving to know more about the things of God.
Who is God?
Elohim (אֱלהִים) is a plural formation of eloah, the latter being an expanded form of the Northwest Semitic noun il (אֱל, ʾēl [1]). It is the usual word for "god" in the Hebrew Bible, referring with singular verbs both to the one God of Israel God the Father+The son (Jesus Christ)+The Holy spirit=One God
First of all let us examine ourselves... As we naturally desire for food when we are hungry, do we feel as hungry for the things of God?If not something is wrong with our spiritual life.
First, there must be a healthy appetite.Healthy appetite and diet leads to a healthy life!
What disrupts ours Sprititual appetite?
*The Holy Spirit being absent from your life or you not allowing him to work in your life!Thats one of the main reasons.
*Tv,computer and generally anything that has to do with the media
*Books,Novels,and things in general that have nothing to do with the things of God
*Physical & spiritual tiredness/weekness
*The pleasures of this world
*Our sinful nature,the devil and his co-workers
What happens when you don't eat?
-> lack of food->malnourishment->deficiencies->starvation->suffering/pain->death.
Second, there must be suitable food: “Desire the sincere milk of the Word that ye may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2).Today you might be sitting all day on the tv looking at christian sermons,reading a christian book and such and gain nothing!Why?Because some preachers don't teach the truth and what God want you to know from his word.The bible is not only about prosperity preaching and candy coated sermons.The word of God is as sharp as sword!And in order for the word of God to cut out the things in your life that are out of order, you must hear the truth that comes from the word of God which few preachers teach...and truth hurths.We need someone who can teach and deliver the sincere milk of the word of God.A spirit filled,matured and Man/Woman of God especially those who are still babies in the things of God.
-Babies drink milk
-Children eat food
-old men can eat bones
Third, there must be proper mastication.In proper mastication the food is duly mixed with our saliva, which is a provision of nature for aiding digestion, and it is the hurried gulping down of our food which prevents this. Now the counterpart of this in connection with spiritual nourishment is, that in order for the Word of God to do us good it must be mixed with faith.John 20:29-Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (ESV)
Fourth,ask for the blessings of God,ask him to give you your daily bread & thank him  for it as Jesus Christ did-Matthew 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread,''- Matthew 14:19 “And looking up to Heaven, He blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to His disciples”
And the most important  develop your personal relationship with the Holy Spirit because without him reading the word of God,praying, doing the things of God, will just be another one routine.But let him do this throught you and let God accept your offering as a living sacrifice.

Lost in the seasons-Words of encouregment

Written by Flower Princess for God Bless Africa ©


Many of use either slow down in the thing of God or get quickened, according to the seasons.The cloudy days,rainy days make some too depressed,tired,boring to go to church or do some christian activities.While the sunny days or spring sweet fragrances make us want to go out for a walk,go to church or even avoid christian activities for other types of activities.My encouragment to you & me today stay active in Christ.Don't let the seasons control your emotions or behaviour but allow the spirit of God to reinforse you with spiritual strenght at each an every season.Because we know according to

Genesis 8:22 ESV

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.”
so it's up to us to change since the seasons never cease.For those who feel unable to control themselfs or unable to do the things God wants us to do here are some steps to follow:
1.Ask the Holy spirit to enable you to do the things of God and make you spiritual strong.Make him your best friend.
2.Make the effort and allow God to do the rest..
3.Fast (we would cover up on what is fasting in another article for those who don't know),read the bible,pray,go to church,participate in church immerse yourself in the things of God as much as you can.
4.Encourage others to come closer to God as you also come closer to him by evangelizing,inviting them to your church & ofcourse encouraging & invite them to join God Bless Africa which will benefit them spiritually...We also want to encourage the members of God Bless Africa to stay active as we all grow in the Lord!
Lastly the word of God says in:

Galatians 6:9 (English Standard Version)

9And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

Conditioning and Deep conditioning the diffrence between the two.

Written by Glorious angel of  Vivid thoughts of Glory blog©
Please do not plagiarize.

Regular conditioning:Gives a minimum amount of hydration,smooths/softens hair strands and coats them to protect from wind,static,sun e.t.c.

Deep conditioning:Gives a very good amount of moisture to hair sometimes it also add strength and elasticity.Keeps hair soft and moist for longer.

How to deep condition:After shampooing, apply a generous amount to damp hair. The longer and thicker your hair is, the more you'll have to use. Because this product is so thick and creamy, a little goes a long way. I find it better to apply it in sections to make sure that every hair strand is coated. As I apply to each section, I comb it through to make sure each hair is covered. I also pay close attention to the ends of my hair. Once you apply it all over, you can take a small amount and concentrate it on the ends if you want or the most damaged areas.

Now the fun part. Cover your hair with a cheap plastic cap and use it with heat or without. If you have a hood or bonnet dryer at home, sit under warm heat for 10-25 minutes. Without heat, just cover your hair with a hot towel (towel putted in hot water and squeezed you need to do it a couple of times cause it get's cold quickly)and relax for 45 minutes to an hour. You can also use a hair steamer without the plastic cap.After that, completely rinse the conditioner out and enjoy the feeling of your hair ^_^

(Actually some people claim that deep conditioning doesn't add any extra conditioning to your hair, but since i'm not sure about it i still do.)

A regimen for healthy relaxed hair on a budget

Here is a basic regimen with products to obtain healthy relaxed hair.It's a pretty cheap regime good for college/university students or individuals on a budget.Just in case you don't know of something basic to begin with.I'm not affiliated with none of this products or store.
The products in these regime may be hard to get in the EU or outside the US in such case i'll probably suggest other products,
Please do not plagiarize.

To moisturize your hair use something cheap like silk elements silken child conditioner.…

or something little bit more expensive:…

When your hair is breaking or once a month use nutress protein pck to strengthen your hair.,default,pd.html?cgid=Hair03-05

To deep condition your hair use organic root stimulator replenishing conditioner (smells really nice is something you must try).,default,pd.html
Try to avoid alcohol denat/isopropyl or lanolin and mineral oil.

so now what to do:

1.Choose 2 days out of the week to shampoo!The one day you will cowash which mean shampoo with conditioner here is how to do it: (Wet your hair, and start shampooing with the conditioner. Use globs of it. Don’t worry about using too much. (use a cheap one like suave or Vo5 strawberries and cream) You almost cant. Use about a quarter size in the front, the top and on each side and the back. Concentrate on rubbing it into your scalp. Do not rub it into the lengths of your hair. You can apply it to the length of your hair like normal conditioner, but don’t rub. You scalp should be slick and entirely covered with conditioner. Put your hair up into a shower cap or something to keep it out of the way. Your hair has to sit for a few minutes with the conditioner on it to do its work. Go on about your shower business and rinse your hair last. RINSE VERY WELL! Rinse longer than you think you should. If you feel its necessary, add your regular conditioner to your ends and rinse again.
That’s it!

So what’s different? Your hair will feel really soft, even when it’s wet. You may worry that your hair will be limp but it wont. (just use a light conditioner that wont weight down your hair) .

Then the other day you will shampoo (with a regular shampoo) you should also do a deep conditioning treatment organic root stimulator..... or another good hair mask.Apply it to wet towel blotted hair ,cover with a shower cap and leave it for an hour without heat or 15-30 min under a hooded dryer.Then rinse and proceed with styling. (written by Glorious angel ©)

Each day you shampoo I'll recommend you either rollerset or air dry (we want to lessen the direct heat usage which means flat irons and blowdryers).You can also do braids with or without extensions (preferably without) to give your hair a break but don't do it tightly.You can moisturize any day anytime your hair feels dry i'll suggest you wet it a bit before moisturizing.Or apply a little oil like wheat germ oil (rich in vitamins and ceramides).Before rollersetting you should you one of the 2 moisturizer i suggested (get one of them) you can also apply a little serum or oil but be light handed so that your hair wont get greasy.Also take a picture of your hair length now and after 3 or 4 months of taking care of it to see the difference.
