Reflections:The unbeatable choice


One of the main reasons we're here in the first place, from the Garden of Eden to the present, is to learn how to make decisions under God's guidance. All of life is that way. We must constantly make decisions and choices. If we know and love and want to please Him and do what's right, this causes us to seek Him in prayer and ask Him for the answers. It makes us dependent on Him as we try to make the right decisions so we'll go the right direction.
God always knows what's best and chooses only what's best for you--the unbeatable choice. So don't make the mistake of telling Him what to do or how to do it. Learn to get His answers, and you will find that His program is best. ---David Brandt Berg

Reflections:You may not achieve your set goals But.....


Do you know that, If you reach for a goal, you may not get there, but at least you’ll get a lot further than if you hadn’t reached at all.
I recently came across an anecdote that used a simple illustration to make a big point. It related the story of a father and his children who were accustomed to taking long hikes in the mountains. The children knew every trail and track up the mountains.

Reflections: You Need Rest And Relaxation


Life is busy and it seems each year it just gets busier. Work, family, school, and other commitments just eat the day away and leave us with no time to sit back and relax. However, rest and relaxation is very important. In fact, getting enough rest is imperative to living a healthy lifestyle and when we do not relax and get enough sleep, we are putting ourselves at risk for illness as well as other side effects. The body needs enough rest each night to function properly. The amount of rest each individual needs every night differs, but the average adult needs approximately 7-8 hours of sleep each night to restore their body with the energy it needs to handle all of the demands of living each day.

NHIS:Only 2500 Primary health facilities are functioning in Nigeria


Only 2, 500 of the 30,000 primary healthcare facilities across the country are functioning, the Acting Executive Secretary, National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Mr Olufemi Akingbade, has said.

He said in Abuja yesterday when he led some senior officials of the agency on a visit to the Nigerian Communication Satellites Limited (NIGCOMSAT) that the 27, 500 facilities which should cater for more than 100 million poor Nigerians were without any health official and the facilities there were rotting away.
The implication of this, he said, was that many poor people who should be enjoying health care services from the government facilities had been cut off.

Nigerian senate begins amendment of Environmental Health Officers Act


The Senate Leader Ali Ndume, has sponsored a motion for the amendment of Environmental Health Officers Act in order to professionalise the practice in view of its importance to environmental safety.

The Act which was last amended in 2002 was lacking in many areas and thus could not support the dynamism of the environment, stressing that if amended as envisaged, it will empower Environmental Health Officers and Sanitation Personnel to discharge their responsibilities professionally.

“A Bill for an Act to amend the Environmental Health Officers Act, 2002 and for other related matters,” Ndume submitted.

Reflections:Miracles Still Happen


Following is a story told by Lois Bunker Woods of a miraculous incident that happened to her when she was a little girl.
The year is 1939. The place is an 80-acre dairy farm outside a small town, 16 miles from the nearest doctor or hospital. A little girl, an 18-month old toddler dressed in overalls, slams the screen door as she scrambles out onto the back porch to play in the sunshine.
Her mother is inside the house, cleaning. Outdoors on this warm spring morning, the world is full of delights to explore. The youngster runs through the dewy grass, picks dandelions and carries them back to the house. On the porch, an old enameled kettle sitting in the sun catches her eye. It is filled with peas soaking in arsenic (poisonous) solution, something that will prevent them from rotting when planted. Back then, seeds weren’t pretreated as most are today.
