INVESTMENTS

I remember when that first paycheck hit my bank account. It was a dream come true! The things I had wished for suddenly tripled in amount. I needed a new phone. I needed a girlfriend. I needed a car and lastly, I needed a new me. Then I recalled to mind the words of my…

NARROW ESCAPE

12th May 2018. Time check: 3:30am. Another night duty! I pitched my eyes across the expanse of the room with very sleepy eyes, after penning down IV Vitamin K 1mg stat, on the drug sheet of the fresh baby I had examined. “Give 192 mls of 10% plain dextrose in a fifth of Normal Saline…

A TALE OF THE NIGHT

It was a cold, windy, starry night. Forget about the stars, but the wind was cold. A night you would not want to spend in a cramped place like this, but in the coziness of your duvets. Time check- 9:25pm. All I could do was marvel at the manual dexterity my boss displayed after a…

PSALMS FROM A JADED HEART

There are times I want to detach the strings of my heart from yours – but you never let go. I have despised you, denied your presence, mocked your essence and even denounced You, but you held me tight. Things slipped away and did not go my way, but you still waved when i faltered….

IN SYNC WITH THE SPIRIT?

I woke up today with the desire to know more about the Holy Spirit. How could I increase my relationship with him better and better with each passing day?  Growing up I was introduced to the concept of the Trinity – Three persons in one body. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The…

DUTY OF CARE

I was listening to the morning show on the radio yesterday. I was glued to my seat because the topic then being discussed was an interesting one. It was a narrative of how a 28 year old man had reported to the hospital for simple appendectomy (surgical procedure to remove the appendix) resulted in extensive…

LILY’S LOVE

“You have a striking resemblance with your mother!” is everyone’s opening statement once they have a real time view of our faces. My mom has always been my backbone. She keeps me strong. She is a mother, a friend. She is really everything to me. I woke up at 4:30am and said a word of…

HEALING

I have come across different people, rich and poor, from different walks of life; either being wheeled into the emergency department, or strolling across the out patient department – All in search of one thing – A healing hand. In consulting room, one day I came in contact with a 56 year old woman, who…

THE BUS ENCOUNTER

08:00am – 10/05/2018 I found myself at the STC yard with the aim of traveling from Kumasi to Accra to spend the month there with family and friends. Double checked my ticket number – it had the number 005 on it. But I had numbered six people who were already seated in this bus. To…

PEACE OF MIND

What is the most valuable thing in your life? Multi million dollar question! I was talking with a friend recently, who told me everything in this world is vanity. This statement happened because she had seen me in a black shirt with the image of my grandfather embossed on the front. She stated that we…
