It is time to ring the jingle bell
Angels singing yes I can tell
We are celebrating christmas
Coming together to celebrate christ in mass
What a glorious season
Jesus the definite reason
Long live the king
His name we all sing
He came in man form to die on the cross
He came purposely to carry our (sin) cross
His ways no man can understand
His wisdom no man can stand
He is a king yet very humble
At his feet enemies stumble
A king that was born in a manger
That would be strange to a stranger
At his birth he was wanted dead
A king that left his throne to make amend
On death blood filled his cup
Yet for our sake did not give up
My father my everything
He gave up his son that one thing
He is the world’s greatest gift
His love for me makes my mind shift

A student failed in law and decided to make a deal with professor.
Sir, do you know everything about law?
Student: If you can answer this question, I will accept my final marks, if you can’t; you have to give me “A”.
The Professor agreed.
Boy asked, “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal & neither legal nor logical?”
The Professor thought about it for hours & pondered but no answer. He finally had to give up as he really did not know and he gave the boy an “A”.
The following day, professor asked same question to his students.
He was shocked when all of them raised their hands. He asked one student.
The student answered “Sir, you are 65, married to 28 years old woman; this is legal but not logical. Your wife, is having an affair with a 23 year old boy, this is logical but not legal. Your wife’s boyfriend has failed in his exam and yet you have given him an “A”, this is neither logical nor legal.”
The professor collapsed…

There was a man who worked for the post office, whose work was to process the mails that had illegible address. One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about.
The letter read:
I am an 83year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday, someone stole my purse. It had 100dollars in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension payment. The next Sunday, I have invited two of my friends over for dinner, and without that money I would not be able to buy food for them. I have no family to turn to, you are my only hope lord. Can you please help me?
The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to his other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected 96 dollars, which they put into an envelope and sent it to the woman.
The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Agnes and the dinner she is going to share with her friends. Sunday came and left, and after a few days another letter came from the same old lady to God. All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened.
How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift.
By the way, 4 dollars was missing from the money, and I think it might have been those thief’s at the post office that stole the money.
HMM, WHAT A WORLD.
Bean Cake Palaver
When I got married, I made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans. Some months later, on my birthday, my car broke down on the way home from work. Since I lived in the countryside, I called my wife and told her I would be late since I would be walking home.
On my way, I passed by a small diner and the odour of baked beans was more than I could stand. With miles to work, I figured that I would walk off any ill effect by the time I reached home, so I stopped by the diner and before I knew it, I had consumed three large orders of baked beans.
All the way home, I made sure that I released all the gas. Upon my arrival, my wife seem excited to see me and exclaimed delightedly ‘’Darling I have a surprise for dinner tonight.’’ She then blindfolded me and led me to the chair at the dining table. I took a seat and just as she was about to remove my blindfold, the telephone rang. She made me promise not to touch the blindfold until she returned and went to answer the call.
The bean cake I had consumed were still affecting me and the pressure was becoming most unbearable, so why my wife was out of the room, I seized the opportunity shifted my weight to one leg and let one go. It was not only loud, but it smelt like a fertilizer truck running over a skunk in front of a pulpwood mill. I took my napkin from my lap and fanned the air around mevigorously. Then shifting to the other cheek, I ripped of three more. The stink was worse than cooked cabbage.
Keeping my ears carefully tuned to the conversation in the other room, I went on like this for another few minutes. The pleasure was indescribable.
When eventually the telephone farewells signalled the end of my freedom, I quickly fanned the air a few more times with my napkin, placed it on my lap and folded my hand back on it feeling very relieved and pleased with myself. My face must have been the picture of innocence when my wife returned, apologising for taking so long. She asked me if I had peeked through the blindfold, and I assured her I had not.
At this point, she removed the blindfold and twelve dinner guests seated around the table chorused: Happy Birthday!!!!!’’ I fainted!

I went for a youth program in church and the pastor asked everybody to pray for a serious life partner. As the prayer began, I was standing close to a girl whose prayer goes thus ‘’Lord God, I need a guy that is very tall, very handsome, spiritually sound, and above all a guy that is as rich as Dangote’’.
A guy was standing beside her, and was carefully listening to her prayer. After she paused for a while, he decided to start his own prayer,
‘’ God I know I am very short, am not handsome, but I have everything in life, I work in an oil company, I have different houses and cars and I travel all over the world but what is all of this without a life partner, I just need a girl I can spend all this money on”.
On hearing this, the lady was shocked, and said deep in her heart that God has answered her prayer, so she decided to play a smart game, and increase her voice so that the man could hear.
She said, ‘’God you know my heart desire, you know me more than I know myself, whether the person is tall or short, handsome or not , I don’t care….Because I am not after the container but the content’’.

Time and ability plus double capacity has forced my pen to dance automatically on this benedicted sheet of paper. Why this miraculous thing happened is because honey I love you spontaneously and as I stand horizontal to the wall and perpendicular to the ground I only think of you, since you are a fantastic and fabulous girl.
Darling please Stop haranguing with the feelings in my heart because I love you more than a snake loves rat. To me each day starts by thinking of you and ends by dreaming of you. Each time I see you my metabolism suddenly stops and my peristalsis goes in reverse gear. My medular-oblangata also stops functioning.
Crazy crazy crazy you may say but this is true. If only you knew what is going on in my encephalon you would understand. That’s why I need to see face to face with you, soon. I think I have to pen-off here because I still haven’t finished studying electrolysis and polymerization. Catch you later. Sleep tight and don’t let those bed bugs bite you coz you are too sweet a thing for them.
My Love, My Sugar, I was exasperated with pride to have received one from you, the lungs in my body flapped with joy when I have been reading your letter. Anyway by now you have reached the realization to why I am jotting this small letter to you, yes it is to see if you are keeping with the sands of time.
How is everything on that other side of yours? Well here everything is just half lemon half sugar to make it Schweppes. How is your schooling? How are you pulling the wagons of life? I am just pulling the schooling thing like a donkey pulling a cart.
My Honie, I am missing you very much right now, and my heart is perambulating with every word that I write, if it was not for these oceans that decided to flow between us then I would get on the next bus to come and see you, but until then I know that I will not hesitate to put this blue blood on this paper and write to you.
I remember that day lovie, that one sweet day as Maria Carey sung it, you know that it is my favorite song Honie. The one day that we were boarding the transport and you escorted me to my home, walking with you just brought sweet dreams to me for the rest of my life Honie.
If words of love could ride a bicycle I would be competing against Mariah Carey. Anyways, I will not stop you from reading the books that gives you life and education, so I will stop here for today.
Please always be writing to me because I am missing you like sugar misses tea. Keep well my mop of my heart, yours in flesh and in blood. And have a nice day.
Abegi if your boyfriend or girlfriend sends you such message or you see this message on your friend’s phone, how would you react.
