BEAUTY IS IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER – A TATTOOED LADY WHO SAVED AN EVIL CHILD.

A certain woman travelled to a far away village in Africa to have an experience of what life feels like in that space. She got to that place and loved the landscape. Though the surrounding looks impoverished of infrastructures and social amenities, she enjoyed her stay.

A certain day during her weekly routine strolling she saw a supposed ‘evil’ child whom the village had left to die. He was impoverished. He looks like a skeleton: his bones are seen clothed with thin skin. His belly big and legs very thin. You can imagine!

Immediately she saw this ‘evil’ child, she was engulfed with compassion. Her eyes rained tears. Never has she seen such a ‘cute’ child left to die for some traditional jamboree. This was made known to her by her travel guide who almost scolded her for going close to this child. She approached the boy and gave him water to drink from the water bottle she brought along with her for the walk. The boy drank up and was satisfied. She took him into her custody to take care of him.

Few days later, she went back to her country with the boy. First, took him to the hospital to run an all round check up to see if he was infected while left to die. Hopefully, none was detected but the doctor prescribed supplements to help regain the state of being and also boost the immune system.

This kind hearted woman took care of the boy and made sure he had everything he desired. He was enrolled into school to begin life with.

Few years later, the malnourished ‘ugly’ looking ‘evil’ boy is now looking healthy, happy and full of life. You would never believe if he was ever that deserted and malnourished. You won’t! You would doubt!

This is to show you how what you can say is that bad and evil can be good and beautiful in another person’s view. Beauty is truly in the eyes of the beholder.

WHY BOOKS?


Some people kind of have this attitude of no regard for books. Most especially books that can impact their lives.

It is not debated that ignorance lives with someone who appreciates it’s relevance. A scholar said rightly that to be ignorant is to be dead: locking yourself away from the rich life literacy and information would give.

Literacy in this context is not how far you have gone in schooling but in education.

Information is the facts gathered about something: existent or not in existent.

Some definition of information includes the word knowledge.

Knowledge is the information you acquire or gain from experiences or education.

These words are interwoven with each other and won’t probably function outside the other.

However, the sources of information is book, journals, reports, articles and so forth.

From this, you will conceive that knowledge and information is found in books and if so, then the importance of books cannot be over emphasized.

A book is somewhat eternal that can earn you freedom from ignorance. This will help you earn a ‘Right’ against Ignorance and mediocrity. Books keep you distinguished from Everybody.

Why?

What you Read takes part in Forming you. It fills you. It assists in patterning our behaviours.

I’ve got a lot of books that have inspired me and hence caused a change in my life.

Books like;

  • Think Big, Ben Carson
  • Understanding your destiny, Etim Isreal
  • Talent is never enough, John .C. maxwell
  • You are God’s battle axe, Benson Idahoso
  • Discipline your tongue, Fada J.C Atado
  • The prayer that heals, Francis MacNUTT
  • The power of character in Leadership, Myles Munroe
  • Rising above limitations, Michael igomu and so on

Books are relevant: to keep you enriched with Words and Vocabularies, to help you speak eloquently, to help you think vastly, to expose you into adventures only you can relate to and understand plainly.

They also create a fiction world where you seat and communicate with the writer.

It keeps you connected with the mindset of positivity and stages you ready for the situations laying ahead in your life’s journey. This actually depends on the books you read.

“Reading a book is a way out of ignorance”.

Today, I charge you to get a book and read. You will go far and do more.

But,

First of all, get the book that gives Life, the BIBLE: it reproofs, corrects and instructs.
